    Good shout, think it was my second. First was Clash of the Titans!

    I’m even more amazed that you didn’t take it on holiday with you!

    Spider-Man PS4 - Insomniac swings into action!

    Not impressed here either unfortunately. I’ve played this game 100 times before. When are we going to start seeing something different and new coming out of game development? It’s as if they think more automatically equals better. More moves, more skill trees, more collectibles. It’s just a mess of uninspiring stuff. Activate these radio towers. Collect all these backpacks littered around this massive map. Fight hundreds of these uninspired balaclava wearing henchmen. Solve a bunch of these silly little circuit puzzles. When are developers going to shake up these tired formulas? What worries me the most is the amount of high praise it seems to be getting, it just reinforces the idea that this is perfectly acceptable and what people want. Looks pretty though, I’ll give it that.
  4. Ive been wanting to watch it for a while, but after all the controversy with Casey Affleck, I think I’d find it difficult to judge it fairly. That may seem ridiculous, but I can’t help it. Probably be an interesting topic for a discussion to be honest.

    Hereditary

    I wouldn’t go that far personally, but I thought certain bits were laughable. The more I’ve thought about this since I saw it, the more disappointed I am. It started so strongly, I really thought I was going to end up watching something deep and memorable.
  6. I’ll probably get run out of town for this one as I know it’s a real polarizer, but I reckon Swiss Army Man is a bit of a modern classic. I’m going to run away with my fingers in my ears now.
  7. For me it isn’t about the sun not coming up, but about how it’s portrayed when it does. I thought Blade Runner 2049 dealt with this brilliantly, by using pollution to give it a grittiness.
  8. Its a very fair question, but as I said in my post, I’m not entirely sure. All I can say is something that didn’t follow such a familiar structure.
  9. What they've shown in those 48 minutes is fundamentally disappointing for me, because it doesn't look to be doing anything new or different from a gameplay perspective. You may question what it is I'd like to be seeing, and I'll happily admit that i'm not entirely sure, but what I do know is that it all seems very familiar. Technically and graphically it looks good (although I'm not seeing anything we don't see right now in terms of character design and animation), but there comes a point when going from point A to point B to meet someone, who then tells you to kill some dudes at point C gets tiring. My guess would be that that's the kind of gameplay loop we'll be looking at throughout Cyberpunk 2077, because they haven't led us to believe otherwise (if there was a lot more to it than that then surely they would've shown it, or at least talked about it, in this first showing). And I should stress that there's not necessarily anything wrong with that, loads of gamers love that sort of experience, but it does seem to be fitting the same mould as many other games over the past decade. I know I sound like a bit of a killjoy saying all this, and I promise I do appreciate the amazing level of work that's been poured into it, any game of this size and scope should be applauded. I guess I was just hoping for something a bit more...surprising?
  10. I'm interested to know what they actually meant by this.

    A movie watchers blog

    I remember seeing this when I was a kid (probably about 9 years old) and thinking I was about to watch the most boring film ever made, but I was completely captivated by it. Havent seen it in years so I think I’ll watch the Directors Cut tomorrow, thanks for posting about it.
  12. I must say, I was also a little underwhelmed. Part of the problem (and I must stress, this is my problem) is all the gushing praise that the ‘behind closed doors’ demo at E3 got. Hearing all that and not seeing it made my hype levels go through the roof. I could only begin to imagine what the press were seeing and relaying back to us, and I guess I’d built it up in my head to be a true step forward in all aspects. Now seeing that demo, I haven’t seen much that doesn’t feel like most other open world city games. Yes, it’s pretty, yes, I’m sure it’s a great technical achievement, but at the same time, there are a bunch of things that feel as if it’s business as usual in video game land. I found myself being reminded of other games rather than feeling like this was something new that’s raising the bar (Deus Ex, The Division, Watch Dogs, GTA, Doom). As far as I can tell, the main positives on show here compared to those titles is that it’s likely to be bigger and have more stuff to do, and that might be an exciting enough prospect for most, but I was hoping for something that went above the usual fetch quests and shooty mans. I do realise I’m saying all this based on seeing a very small chunk of what’s likely to be an epic 100+ hour experience, but I can’t help but feel that after all the build up, they’ve put their best foot forward for this reveal.

    Hereditary

    Yes! Creepiest shot of the whole film, completely agree!

    Hereditary

    100% agree. The first 45 minutes were so good, it just went rapidly downhill after that.

    Karl Pilkington is Sick Of It

    I have to say, going purely from that trailer, I think this could be a winner. Looks nicely shot for a start, and it feels as if it might have a bit of depth to it. Anyone see what I mean? Or am I talking out of my arse?
