  1. I remember seeing the film of Lord of the Flies when I was a kid (the B&W one - this would have been before the colour one was made). I remember it being slightly upsetting.
  2. Before the lock down I was planning to cycle into the centre to take photos. I can’t really do that now. Ealing was actually fairly busy today. Lots of people milling around - not as busy as usual - but still pretty busy.
  3. There was a wedding happening here but it’s barely visible.
  4. Breath of the Wild. There was a tricky maze and ball puzzle in one of the shrines controlled by the gyro controller. I’m sure like me most people thought, “I wonder what will happen if I just flip over the controller.” And then you’ve got a flat slab to just roll the ball across.
  5. I’ve only played the “remastered” Halo CE on the 360 and really didn’t like the new graphics - or the old ones much for that matter. The new textures and lighting completely changed the original atmosphere. Dark areas were now far too bright. The old textures looked really washed out compared to how they were on the original Xbox (I played that game to death) - maybe it was something related to playing on CRT vs LCD or, IIRC being based on the PC version complete with glitches. But even with adjusted brightness and contrast it never looked “right.”
  6. Yes. Lovely place but we only spent an hour or two there on the way to somewhere else.
  7. Even if I could afford to, I’d have no space for them. I don’t know if I’m going to bother with either console this next gen. I’d probably buy a more powerful Switch if it were cheap enough though.
  8. I’ve been trying to watch the new episode but Netflix keeps buffering then crashing every 10 mins. It’s not our internet connection because everything else - even on Netflix - is fine. Would too many people streaming the same show affect it?
  9. Most of the time I really can’t notice a difference between those DF comparisons even side by side (except if one version is actually broken). Even downgraded Switch versions look more or less the same to me.
  10. We went to see Parasite yesterday. I’m still processing it. I’d deliberately avoided any trailers and reviews so I went into it pretty much cold - just knowing it was a satire about wealth. I don’t know what I was expecting but it exceeded anything I could have possibly expected. I can’t think of a better film I’ve seen in the last few years. I think I really need to see it again. One thing that’s really stuck in my head:
  11. Sonic 3 is the weakest of the original Mega Drive trilogy (the first was the best). The levels were just too big and confusing.
