    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Welp....that’s a snowball’s chance in hell of single player DLC then. At least I can safely sell it on after completing the campaign, while it still holds some value.
  2. Let’s be honest, it was pretty much Kiss Kiss Bang Bang in different shoes.
  3. Given all the unfavourable reviews, I’m more confused than ever regarding Black’s involvement in this. Has his talent fallen off a cliff in the past few years? Was he desperate for cash and they just wanted his name? Did he owe someone a favour? It seems that there’s none of his trademark sharp dialogue or quiet subversion of tropes. In fact, it sounds like the film should come with a trope bingo card.

    Spider-Man PS4 - Insomniac swings into action!

    I stand corrected. The first thing that sprang to mind when I heard about the Spiderman DLC was Deus Ex, and how the DLC missions in that felt like they’d been chopped out of the game to its detriment. Then some reviews said ‘not many side missions’ and I leapt for my pitchfork. But there is an important difference between ‘more of this’ and ‘that felt like part of the main story’, I admit.

    Spider-Man PS4 - Insomniac swings into action!

    People are complaining. Well, specifically complaining about lack of meaningful side missions. More than one review has mentioned that the couple of deep side quests that there are, makes the absence of any others rather jarring. With the DLC being released so soon, it stands to reason that if certain content in the main game is a little thin then it has, most likely, been excised for the DLCs during development. Of course, players may feel different to the reviewers, but for that we need to wait until more people have played and completed the game. My only 'proof' is that Spiderman is far from the first game to do this, so the sensation is very familiar, but that doesn't make it any less shitty or mean we should stop calling it out.

    By the looks of things they did, it’s just that a portion of them were excised to be sold as DLC.

    Fastest way to clear a backlog... watch the games?

    I do it a bit for interesting games that are on systems I don’t own, and have little likelihood of owning in the near future. Stuff like Scum on PC to see if battle royale is going anywhere interesting, or State of Decay 2 on XBox as I enjoyed the original on 360. But for games you already own? Why not just purchase ones you absolutely feel compelled to play, rather than ‘that’s kinda cool, I guess/a nice enough price’ which is sure to result in a huge backlog?

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    Yeah, I wasn’t a big fan of Rise, though it still had its moments. The problem for me was the difference in writing quality between Rise and it’s predecessor - Trinity were such deathly dull foes next to the islanders, who at least had a bit of nuance and intrigue about them.

    Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan coming to Amazon

    Well, it was a black site, so it makes sense they would’ve set up in the remnants of an old local fort (or whatever it was). The urge to fly in a branch of McDonalds to make the troops more comfortable must’ve been strong, though.

    Die Hard Year One. Yes they won't let it die.

    This series really needs a 'Logan' moment to see McClaine off properly, as its already become a bad joke. Of course, we won't get one, what with Willis being so cynical that he doesn't care about actioning away despite looking, as comedian Jeff Ross put it, like a bouncer in a nursing home.

    Monthly Release Dates - September 2018

    Dont sweat it, you’re providing a useful service here! Truthfully I had no idea there was going to be a retail release, otherwise I would’ve joined the dots.

    Monthly Release Dates - September 2018

    Bit confused by the presence of ‘The Long Dark’ when I’ve been enjoying it on PS4 for the last few weeks, and Sony doesn’t have an early access program!

    Disenchantment - Matt Groening on Netflix

    That’s.....not a ringing endorsement.
