    Hannibal

    I watched the last episode of this last night and really enjoyed it. I'm gutted they aren't making more, but at least it didn't feel unfinished - the series ending as it was served as a good enough ending. It was quite romantic.

    I liked the actor that plays In Boardwalk Empire, but he totally overcooks it in this. He's more like the joker, and he's taking too much from the film version of the character instead of making it his own.

    It's definitely a different take on the character of Hannibal than the films. I prefer the film version though, the TV Hannibal has no boundaries as to who he kills. Also, I've just seen that Is in this

    The season 1 ending was an interesting take on the story...

    Hannibal

    I've been watching this for the past week or so, and like every highly-rated American drama it highlights the difference between US and UK programmes. Every episode has its own mini story arc, which is neatly tied up within 45 minutes, like they haven't got the attention span to follow a build up over a few episodes. A prime example was the last episode I watched: the human totem. All this build up about the killer's motives, and in the end we get a two-minute, throwaway scene where the killer is revealed, and basically says "oh well, you caught me". No delving into his motives, or more annoyingly no explanation for how a frail 70 year old man managed to construct a 20 foot totem when he can barely move from his chair. Mads Mikkelsen is great as Hannibal, but I feel like he's wasted when the stories and supporting characters don't do him justice.
  7. Proper cringed at "what's the name of my driver?", I mean really? She was poor for longer than she's been rich, is it really that hard to remember what real life is like? Also, who else thought she was phoning Tina to ask for the cheque back at the end?
  8. I never liked the look of old first-person PC games like Half Life and Deus Ex, because the sharpness of the models was at odds with the blurriness of the textures. The N64 was like that too. The PS1 was the sweet spot for me in terms of graphics - the pixelation only added to to the atmosphere by making you use your imagination a bit.
  9. I might have to buy a Switch just for this...
  10. The battles are like that, you have to get good at chain attacks. There's no way to win without them, and boss fights always come down to taking miniscule amounts off, but for every chain you hit your damage increases. I can only ever hit a 14-chain consistently, and then I hit a mental barrier and lose it. A 14-chain does decent damage though e.g.(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14 = 105 damage). There are proper weapon guides online which will make the game a bit easier. That's another thing to keep in mind - you can't use the same weapon for all enemies. Weapons increase their effectiveness against that specific type of enemy the more you use them, but as one stat increases another decreases. So for example, using a weapon against humans may cause it to become less effective against phantoms. It's quite complicated.
  11. Vagrant Story is one of my favourite games, but it's definitely a game of it's time. The main annoyances are the weapon swapping and storage chests. There's no quick way of switching weapons, you have to go into the menu, which loads quite slowly. You'll be swapping weapons often too. As for the storage chests, you can't store anything without saving, which also takes quite a while. If you've forgotten to store something then you have to go through it all again. Don't let me put you off though it's got some of the best music and storytelling of any game, in my opinion. And yes, it does kind of feel like FFXII.
  12. Philadelphia - 5/5. I never hear this film mentioned, but for me it's possibly Tom Hanks' greatest performance. Springsteen's soundtrack is amazing too.
  13. Hannibal - 5/5. I never get bored of this film, it's phenomenal.
  14. Is the mobile game the same game talked about in the OP? I mean is there a game coming to consoles or not?
  15. The man was a legend. I remember being disturbed by his portrayal of John Wayne Gacy. He was great in F/X as well
