  1. Stuff certainly can be over promoted. I was initially kind of looking forward to The Greatest Showman, after seeing nothing but the first teaser, but after being subjected to a trailer every single fucking time I went to the cinema for at least six months I was thoroughly sick of it by the time the film was finally released, and now even switch the radio off every time they start playing something from the soundtrack!
  2. Pokemon Go

    At the very start of last years VD event - as in 8pm on the dot - I saw the shadow of a Chansey at a Pokestop half a mile away, so assumed this meant they’d be everywhere and didn’t bother going after it. Of course, I’ve never seen a hint of another!
  3. Winter Olympics 2018

    Hit! She’s going down! No, just a flesh wound! Firing back!
  4. Winter Olympics 2018

    They never actually show what they’re shooting at in the biathlon, so based on the inlay I can only assume it’s each other (Which sucks for the photographers in the background ).
  5. Smashing Pumpkins

    I stopped at the bit where her leaving the band mainly seemed to revolve around Billy refusing to call her personally and her refusing to have any contact which didn't involve him calling her personally. That seemed to be a mutually stubborn headed stand-off either could have resolved easily, but she clearly thinks that means the blame is all on Billy's side and he no doubt thinks the opposite. In light of their completely opposing views on that you can't really trust what either has to say about any of it!
  6. Winter Olympics 2018

    I’ve watched two games on the BBC red button, unless they’re not showing specific games you’re interested in (they were both “best thing on” sort of choice).
  7. Forza Horizon 3

    I’ve said it several times before, but I’d ideally see the main Forza and Horizon combined. I love all the driving round for fun and generally pissing about stuff, but prefer the races themselves to be on proper tracks. My perfect version of it would have open roads between the various race venues which have all been perfectly recreated in close proximity to each other for some reason
  8. I’ve just seen the headlines of articles (like to go into films knowing as little as possible), but have only seen their involvement mentioned in the “They’re the Tolkien white guys” joke that keeps doing the rounds.
  9. Formula One - 2017 Season

    I seem to remember I suggested something like that when they first mooted the idea, but everyone seemed confident such a screen couldn’t be strong enough and would be impossible to see through in the wet. Do they run in the wet? Although I’d have thought helmet visors would have the same problem with spray and they work somehow edit: some of what he said
  10. Blade Runner 2049

    Apparently the original cut was over 4 hours (probably read that somewhere in this thread ), so they could well have got rid of something related to this!
  11. Harvey Weinstein and other Hollywood predators

    Lengthy response/interview with Tarantino http://deadline.com/2018/02/quentin-tarantino-uma-thurman-harvey-weinstein-kill-bill-car-crash-new-york-times-1202278988/ this is the text of Uma’s Instagram post he refers to (which was a follow up to her original interview):
  12. Pokemon Go

    Didn't there used to be a "person who defeated the gym gets priority" feature on this? Spent fifteen minutes knocking down a fully-stocked blue gym by myself, but it let some Yellow cunt stick a Blissy in during the 5 second gap between victory and trying to add my Snorlax, and the fucker then stuck around feeding it berries faster than I could knock health off it. Between things like this and being excluded from the "Gotta catch 'em all" element by not knowing 20 people to do raids with I wonder why I bother playing
  13. Don’t know whether to bother watching this now as so many massive spoilers are suddenly getting dropped everywhere I’d even managed to stay completely blind to the basics of what it was about until yesterday
  14. Unlockable content - haven't we outgrown it?

    Enforcing a skip option on linear games would change them for everyone, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. My greatest sense of gaming achievement and when I’ve enjoyed them the most is when I’ve finally got past something I thought I’d never manage and frustrated the hell out of me for hours, long past the point where I’d have bypassed it if I could. Those highlights would have been robbed from me if a level skip option had been enforced on the developer. Conversely there are also games I was enjoying playing until I suddenly got stuck a long way from the end, and just abandoned them forever after failing a dozen times in a row. A skip option there would have been brilliant!
  15. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    You seem to have declared it nonsense to suggest that there’s been minimal set-up and then explained how there’s been minimal set-up
