    Pokemon Sword & Shield - Nintendo Switch

    This whole BotW-thing always sounded like a case a wishfull thinking to be honest. Yes, I know, rumours stated that BotW would be the big inspiration but trusting those tends to be 50-50 when it comes go Nintendo. As it is, i’m liking what I’m seeing so far. It’s an evolution of Sun/Moon, yes. Those titles had issues but showed tremendous potential for taking the formula further. The first trailer shown looks to be addressing at least some of those issues.

    Nintendo Switch

    Ports or no ports, it just hit me that the Switch this year is going to get mainline entries from 4 of the biggest jRPG’s. Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Tales Of... and Pokemon.

    Nintendo Direct - 13.02 10PM GMT

    Orchestra AND 2D mode make this the best version.

    Harvey Weinstein and other Hollywood predators

    I’ll go ahead to voice the negmageddon opinion then: Jackson is innocent. There was way more scrutiny over his behaviour for over 2 decades by the media, FBI and the courts. Everytime he came up innocent. Comparing to R. Kelly where we have video footage of abuse, Cosby where a deluge of people stepped forward with their stories, Weinstein where an entire network of abuse and enablers came up, etc. Sorry, but he’s innocent. *runs to the bunker*
  5. Got this earlier today. The art, better-then-expected combat and the weirdness got me to buy it. Will post impressions later.

    Doctor Who

    It’s the way the show works it seems. By this pojnt in Moffat’s tenure, people where beginning to pine for RTD.
  7. Before I forget, the soundtrack deserves some mad props as well. Great selection of songs and the orchestral score has some great themes. The one for Kingpin and Prowler stand out for me.
  8. Going to say this is easily the best Spider-Man film so far. Dethroning Spider-Man 2 for me as one of the greatest superhero films ever made. I’ve seen people quibble about the writing but what they get incredibly right with it is the tone of a Spider-Man story. Finally managing to move away from the pseudo Donner Superman tone they had going ever since Tobey Maguire’s first outing. Instead, we get a film which owes just as much to hip-hop as it does to Spider-Man comics in establishing its mood. Something that winds up feeling both new and yet very familiar for the webslinger at the same time. What helps with this is that the way the story is told, makes a familiar story feel fresh. Various detours are made for all the Spider-Men and Women to establish their backgrounds, creating something of a goal for Miles Morales to live up to. Speaking of which. In terms of characterisation, this is pretty much the new gold standard for the genre. 5/5
  9. What a trash article. The sales breakdown from the UK showed that this has sold better then bloody X/Y and Black/White did at launch when adding in digital!

    Detective Pikachu movie

    The deep lore and references that you see throughout the trailer point to two things: 1) The Pokémon Company(and thus GameFreak) are very involved with this. 2) The production itself is littered with people who are genuine fans of the whole thing, and if not have invested serious time in getting it right. That Mr. Mime barrier gag in particular reads that way.

    At least i’m bathing in money. Let’s see you do that!

    Doctor Who

    What the hell, I’ll bite. Losing a quarter of your audience doesn’t mean much when it’s a quarter of the biggest audience any regular episode ever managed. Every final viewing figure so far has finished north of 8 million. 4 episodes in a row. The first time since Tennant’s highpoint in series 4. That means the show is performing better then it has over the last 8 years. But oh, no. Don’t let that get in the way of moaning for the umpteemth fucking time about “IT’S PC GONE M-M-M-MAD!!!!”. Massive fucking bellend covers it quite nicely I’d say.

    Doctor Who

    Indeed. Walsh, Cole and Gill are all great in their roles. The Tardis team scene from last episode was just a great showcase for everyone.

    Doctor Who

    I quite loved this episode. A lot of people seem miffed at the plot petering out but I like how The Doctor tried going about ending the threat in an as non-violent way possible. Before Mr Big charged to set himself up as recurring villain we’ll no doubt see more of. (I approve of that btw, Chris Noth is pretty great) I love how much the show has changed under Chibnall so far. It’s the first time the new series has done that. Many people would probably cite Moffat’s tenure as a change as well but series 5 had waaaaaay more in common with the preceding 4 series then series 11 so far has with the previous 13 years of the new series. That’s mainly to do with this series shifting to an ensemble dynamic. It has created quite a bit of change with how most of the plots play out. Chibnall will never be my favourite writer for sure, but as showrunner his instincts have been pretty sound so far.

    Doctor Who

    Three episodes in and I think someone has managed to sum up Chibnall’s approach quite nicely:
