    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I can't think of many games where the mocap and voice acting for the female character isn't better or as good as it is for the male character. It's probably related to the wider employment opportunities for male actors.

    You (Netflix Series Thriller)

    Wondered why @Cool Ben had appeared to get a spot of brain damage. Anyway. I thought it was very predictable at the start. Good in the middle with the social media stuff around her friends and got a bit ridiculous at the end. All well acted though. I wish the characters weren't so believable. All total bellends.

    The Favourite

    Really enjoyed the performances and script, though I still don't get on with Lanthimos's directing. I loved the confused laugh of the audience at the first joke when they realised they'd not come to see what they thought they had. Best bits in the credits:

    Hitman Bloody Money gets a 4K/60fps remaster

    I'd have rather seen Contracts in there than Absolution but Blood Money's a top 10 all-timer for me so I'm in out of sheer loyalty.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Here's a 170: https://www.simplygames.com/p/xbox-one-s-console--1tb-hdd-xbox-one Game do it for £200 with RDR2 and Sea of Thieves.

    I actually felt like the Jeff railroading was heavily diminished this year. Someone on Reddit always looks at correlation between staff lists and overall lists. They've not done it yet but I think Jeff's correlation will be way down for 2018.

    Yeah. I found his take on Odyssey interesting and can totally see why you'd get series burnout. I completely ignored Origins, I think Odyssey's brilliant. I don't think it's a coincidence that every list on the Rllmuk end of year poll that has both Odyssey and RDR2 on it somewhere has Odyssey ranked higher.

    What's the best way to play Christmas Nights in 2018?

    I was just about to post saying that hopefully this format change will reduce the need to go over the same ground and keep later episodes in check length-wise. I may have been mistaken.

    Christmassy feeling games and sharing experiences

    Arkham Origins has quite rightly been getting a positive reappraisal in recent years. It's set on Christmas Eve/Day and has nice decorations around. It got quite a kicking on release for not being Rocksteady developed but it's the second best game in the series imo. https://www.greenmangaming.com/blog/why-batman-arkham-origins-is-all-you-need-this-christmas/

    15 million viewers watched the last dota International. We're still talking pretty small numbers by comparison. I'm a PC gamer primarily. I barely heard a word about Far Lone Sails before Sean. The PC space is so crowded with so much to talk about that a lot of games don't get the attention they deserve. I'm actually about to go and play Far as soon as my bloody toddler goes to sleep. Was £7.50 on Steam today.

    There's no spoilers for anything. They did a really good job. Great spoiler - free show. That first quarter final had me in stitches. I do think they should put two weeks between the show and draft. There's too many games people haven't played.
