    Games development and obscure football. One day I promise to combine the two.

    Zelda OOT modelled in Unreal Engine

    It looks good, but there's something a bit off about the very flat surfaces. Extremely true to the original, of course, but they jar a little with the graphical fidelity.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    Reviews, no matter the weight of the publication, will always only be the opinion of between one and a few people. There's no point holding them to a higher standard than many people on a forum like this, I feel - we all play games, we all are capable of stating what we think of them, focusing on whatever aspects we like or dislike. A broad consensus will always trump a single opinion when it comes to establishing if a game has issues of this sort.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    I suppose it is possible that nobody who reviewed it had a problem. I certainly didn't and as a result, any review from me wouldn't be complaining about them. But I accept it's widely recognised as being poor, and as such you'd expect somebody to have noticed an issue and found it as detrimental as many others did.

    Super Mario Bros. C64?

    It's to the absolute surprise of nobody that Nintendo have made their move. But they'll just retool it to star some young boy on a space adventure, before going on to revolutionise the industry with some fancy first person games about killing nazis and demons.

    For the longest time between goals, it'll do some to beat Real Madrid's game against Real Sociedad in 2004. After Nihat Kahveci's 72nd minute equaliser for Sociedad, Zidane scored a penalty in the 91st minute... 24 days later. A bomb scare had caused the original game to be abandoned, and they picked up again with six minutes to play.

    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    After spending most of the season in the top seven, Telford are on the brink of not making the playoffs. A home draw against Alfreton has left them in seventh, with just one game to play - Bradford Park Avenue have a two goal advantage and Blyth are a point ahead. Bradford PA play Chorley, whose 1-0 defeat to Spennymoor has probably killed their title hopes but hopefully they'll still win. That'd leave a draw at York enough.

    An Essay For Edge And Games Tm

    I know who "prankster101" is. I haven't a fucking clue who he is. If that's fame, then fuck it, I'm famous too.

    Alien: Isolation

    So many people missing out on the game because it's just too good. That's new, at least.

    Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate the effect of playing at home. I just don't think "familiarity" is the right term. In any case, by design a two-legged affair balances that effect out, it doesn't need further sweetening. In general, I don't think a 1-0 win at home should be considered more worthy than a 4-3 win, yet that's the effect we see with the away goals rule.
  10. Aladdin was Virgin developed, but as Sega published it that should be fine. Perhaps the only possible hiccup is Disney deciding they'd rather keep focus this year on the live action remake.

    I'd favour going straight to penalties, personally. I wonder if there are any stats for home advantage in a shootout.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    If there's an advantage to playing at home (and there is) why is scoring four there treated worse than scoring one? That's my problem with the argument. It favours a good home defence rather than attack. And while replacing some tedious extra time with dramatic away goals is laudable, what about those games killed off by an away goal resulting in a mountain to climb?

    They scored more at their familiar ground, the unusual situation you mention notwithstanding. So I'm unconvinced by that argument. Should we be offering bonuses for unfamiliarity? It's a 105 x 68 m pitch wherever you play. The location of the toilets and colour of the changing room isn't going to make an appreciable difference.
