    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    Its somewhat more grounded that the original trilogies and there is a bit of an over reliance on a certain giant enemy trope for some of the bosses but there are still some very cool encounters. It also has some bloody brilliant sub quest lines that you can wander into that are as well realised and developed as the main plot. It was my favourite game of last year by a mile and the first thing in an age that I didn't drop when I reached the credits and instead went back and played out all the additional material (and there is quite a bit of the game that is optional). If you are still not feeling it once it opens out then maybe its not for you but Uncle Nasty is being extremely harsh. FWIW I loved Dark Sector too!!

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Now down to £26 in cdkeys - probably will hit £20 before the end of the month But obviously I already folded and bought it for £27 on Saturday because I'm an idiot and wanted it. But no regrets it so far - runs lovely at high settings on my 1060 GTX laptop and no sign of the bugs reported in my first 5 hours with the game. Just did a really neat little dungeon type affair leading to a massive mutant boss. Shooting is amazing, driving perfectly serviceable and looks like there is a lot to do. Despite the marketing being all neon the game actually looks and feels pretty close to the first game. I'm massively enjoying it so far.

    His Dark Materials - being adapted as a BBC One drama series

    They’ll need a lot more than six hours to get The Amber Spyglass to make sense on film. The Northern Lights would work in a single season, the other two books would suffer badly with the cuts that would be needed

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    Despite the clear critical response that this is mediocre and the financial insanity of buying it now when it blatantly going to be half price by next month....I'm still tempted at £27 at CDkeys. Love Doom combat, loved the original and have a high tolerance to open world busy work. Pretty sure I'll love it but its nuts to buy it now given my backlog. But I wantssss it....

    Epic Games Store - All Your Games Are Belong To Us

    Tempted by Close to the Sun at £15 - love the Bioshock vibe. Anyone played it?

    Are cutscenes necessary?

    They aren’t the sort of games you necessarily start again the minute you finish but I’ve played through the entire series several times over the years and they remain great fun on each play through and have a sense of pace and a journey to make them more than just a series of button presses. You know much like it’s fun to rewatch your favourite films but you wouldn’t watch them on repeat Mind you I’ve also replayed the first Tomb Raider reboot about three times since release and enjoyed massively it each time so it’s very likely to be a different strokes kind of thing.
  7. This....(not that Yakuza Kimami is bad - but 0 remains the pinnacle of the series and the starting point for the story to boot)

    I refer you to my earlier comments

    RⒶGE 2 - Explosions by Avalanche Studios

    I loved it - The Dead City is an amazing level. Its basically an open world Quake in a Mad Max themed world with cars. The last third of the game is a bit threadbare and that ending is well yeah - but its a good game.

    Streaming service costs!

    £7.99 p/m for Netflix - gets a decent amount of use from both us and the kids and historically a massive amount of use from the kids (they are more into You Tube these days). Is a keeper for now. 2 screen package is fine because of the kids changed viewing habits. £7.99 p/m for Prime. To be honest we don't really watch this that much (basically Mrs Dream watches Mrs Mazel and I've watch the Grand Tour and American Gods and psyched for Good Omens) but we only have it because of Prime which we'd pay for anyway (given the load of other free stuff and the ridiculous amount of stuff we buy from Amazon). Piggyback on my dad's Sky subscription for Go which is probably our most used TV app (so free yay). That said not sure I'd actually pay for the Sky stuff as mainly we use it as an amalgam catch up app (has the ITV and More4 apps built into the interface). Game of Thrones notwithstanding. Nice to have the movies and box sets there for when we're in the mood though. We do still watch a lot of iplayer and I listen to Radio 4 a fair bit so feel we get value from the Tv licence - even though we never actually watch live TV anymore with the exception of BBC news. We do watch a lot of You Tube (wife has a Disney vlog fixation) but I'd never pay cash money for it - the ads aren't generally that annoying (far worse say on Sky app). Will undoubtedly get the Disney one though

    Sonic The Hedgehog (Live Action) Nov 2019

    Okay I think we maybe being a tad unfair here. Yes Sonic looks like some disturbing demonic vision of a CGI rendered hedgehog but have you seen what Jigglypuff looks like in the Detective Pikachu movie? Anyway Carrey looks like he’ll be worth the admission price. The rest maybe less so...
