  1. I worked in the room where this game was being made (I was working on another game, but helped out for about a week at the end when my game was finished). God, that tune is burned into my brain. I must have heard it about 200 times a day for about 6 months. Not sure if I love it or hate it. Tim and Geoff also used almost the same guitar solo bit in one of the Plok tune (at 1:50):
  2. Yeah, I did actually start over again, did the little tutorial in the castle with Ciri, and it all came back to me then, so I went back to my old save and carried on playing from there and had a smashing time. The crafting and the levelling up skill tree stuff all looked a bit overwhelming, but I'm sure I'll work it all out again. And I can't remember how to play Gwent... Noticed that the date on my old save was August 2016! I'm level 21, and my next main quest is to recruit allies and go to the Isle of Mists. Any idea how close to the end of the main story I am there? Also, with the two DLC expansions, are they best left until I complete the main story?
  3. Might just restart from the beginning.
  4. I had a hankering to come back to this after seeing people talk about the Switch version. I never finished it when I first played it on PC, but I think I'm about 3/4 of the way through. Downloaded it over the weekend, and still got my old save, but booted it up and realised I've completely forgotten how to play it, and have no idea what's going on with the story. I walked around for about 10 seconds then quit out. Need to pluck up the courage to go back and work it all out again.
  5. I think the dubs of Ghibili stuff are pretty high quality as far as dubs go. I can't imagine them being much better (barring odd niggles that people have mentioned above). The problem is the weird staccato delivery of the lines. Presumably this is down to Japanese being a faster language than English? I dunno, but it seems like the Japanese originals must have more information delivered in a shorter time period than would be typical for English speakers, so the actors doing the English dub have to speak in an unnaturally fast way to keep up with the animation. They all sound a bit off to me.
  6. Let's face it, they're all the best one.
  7. I think for a lot of people (me included) Spirited Away was our first experience of Ghibli stuff, and it was such a revelation that it's hard to get over that first impression. And it's incredibly well animated in places.
  8. I watched it last night. I really enjoyed it, and by the end of the film I thought it was wonderful. Then the end credits began, and oh my god, I was in bits for that whole credits sequence.
  9. Yeah, I've seen Big Hero 6 and really enjoyed it. All the way through. I also think Into The Spider-Verse is one of the greatest movies ever made, in any genre.
  10. That's the attitude that led to colouring in Laurel and Hardy films...
  11. I like the first half of a lot of Pixar films, but not so much the endings. Same with most superhero films too.
  12. That's all great stuff. I was expecting...
