    Bumblebee - Transformers Spin-off

    It is exactly this. I had no interest in seeing this because that last film was the last straw in a pile of shit covered straws. I had run out of patience for Transformer testicles, racist robots and incontinent machines. Loud, leery nonsense that had little resemblance to my childhood. Even when the first trailer came out, I shared it in a WhatsApp group asking "Is this a trap?". Using the original designs couldn't even get me to muster an ounce of excitement at the time. However I found myself with an afternoon free and I'd heard this wasn't awful so I took a trip to the cinema and was really rather impressed. This is exactly the movie I'd imagined when Steven Spielberg was first attached to the franchise. Funny and charming with some well shot action scenes, it is the antithesis of the Bay films. The biggest shame is that this isn't a reboot. They could still treat it as one and just start from the end of this movie but if Bay still has any creative control will he allow it? The other shame is that it hasn't even made 2/3rds the box office of the appalling last movie meaning this could be the only truly good Transformers film.
  2. You can tell me about that humming bellend Cornifer all you want. Such a bizarre decision, which meant exploring a new area was laborious. Getting so far in and having no idea how to get back through some of the more complicated areas was incredibly frustrating. Even despite that issue, when I tried going back to it I had no idea where I was supposed to be going next, which turned out to be Dead Cells. 100% that.
  3. Game of the Year A1. Marvel's Spider-Man A2. Hitman 2 A3. Call of Duty Black Ops 4 A4. Monster Hunter World A5. God of War Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. PlayStation Classic "Any other choice for number one is just irresponsible. The easiest goal Sony should have ever scored and they trip over the ball, stumble into the post and shatter their nut sack. Embarrassing" Z2. Red Dead Redemption 2 "The most pointless open world game ever. It only appears to be there to make that game longer, forcing you to trudge between missions. The design of which are so rigidly linear that you'll fail if your horse looks the wrong way or a cat trips you out of the mission area. All of that combined with shockingly bad controls that change on the fly depending on the situation but never make sense, they certainly made an excellent accidental murder simulator. Arthur loving nothing more than shooting innocent people from the hip. Oh and the online mode is shit too" Z3. State of Decay 2's online co-op "Great game, wish it was playable with friends instead of an awful broken mess" Z4. Hollow Knight "The least fun Metroidvania of the year. I get why some people would like the lack of a map but it's just not fun. There's a reason the SEGA Ages version of Phantasy Star added a cool auto-mapping feature, because it's awful. Everything else about the game was great but this just stopped me playing, I have no time for games that don't respect my time" Z5. Jurassic World Evolution "The people who brought you the excellent Planet coaster release a shit dinosaur zoo simulator" Sound Design of the Year S1. Battlefield V S2. Marvel's Spider-Man S3. Red Dead Redemption 2 Visual Design of the Year V1. Marvel's Spiderman "Not content with making the best looking comic book New York City (choose the comic suit and it genuinely looks like a cel shaded Spidey swinging over video of New York City), some of the best character work in games but they also extend that design to the enemies. During frantic combat it's always easy to visually recognize what threat will be coming from where and it really helps keep the flow going" V2. Gris V3. Forza Horizon 4 "One of the few games you can go from Red Dead Redemption 2 and be surprised that games can actually look better than that. The speed, the lighting, the detail, it's all just so damn impressive." Writing of the Year W1. God of War W2. Marvel's Spider-Man W3. Hitman 2 "People will think this an odd choice but I love Agent 47's dumb lines" Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. Nintendo Switch Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Sony "Spider-Man and God of War in one year? Yummy." Best Supported Game (released pre 2018) of the Year B1. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege "Best damn supported game in a long time, great new characters and a community that keeps growing" Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2017 or earlier) X1. Best game character of the year C1. Doctor Octavius (Marvel's Spider-Man) "They took what should have been the most rote, obvious story line ever and created something special. That was only thanks to the wonderful performance of the character and his relationship with Peter. It was truly touching at times" C2. Kratos "They turned gaming's biggest dick into a (somewhat) relate-able character, with real emotional depth. It's a staggering achievement considering the starting point" C3. Meowscular Chef "A bad ass cat that cooks hunter's their raiding meal. Perfect"

    Yah, let's deny a weird indie game creator the full money for the game they made and then complain when they don't make another one.

    A Daily Mail link? As if this thread didn't have enough far right nonsense!

    Yoku's is a delight. I personally find it to be one of the better metroidvania's because it is just so damn charming and fun to play. The game is one big smile and sometimes that's all you need.

    So it's the opposite of the Just Cause 4 quick look? To be fair, Below doesn't come across as a game that's very interesting to spectate.

    I mean, I quite like it when the quick look accurately represents the game.

    Games with Gold for Christmas 2018

    Thankfully someone in this thread has great taste. To see everyone bitching about getting one of the best puzzle games since Valve decided to stop making games is rather sad. Shame on you all!

    Add me to the list as Beertiger. Then explain to me how you make the aim controller tracking non shit. Had a quick run against bots and after I'd shot two people the game had already lost where my gun should feel like it should be. The game itself looks excellent. Really, really excellent but it's hard coming from Onward to this.

    Even the big patch didn't make Enter the Gungeon fun for me. I love everything about it apart from the actual game, which bums me out. It's probably the game I've most spent trying to like.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Single Player, NO SPOILERS thread

    If I knew how to post pictures this would be prime Picard "What the fuck is this shit?" material.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    What sort of a "Master Race" uses the baby line to cradle them round corners?
  14. I don't understand the push to keep the Xbox as close to feature parity with PC as possible when the base game still isn't there yet.

    If he shifted to concentrate on the motorsport stuff he's interested in then I'd contribute
