  1. WB missed out some artists' names from the credits. Never mind, they can go in a tweet instead! You might expect that the only people left uncredited were inexperienced people, just getting their start in the industry. But that's not the case, as the names include people like Tony Bancroft (co-director of Mulan!), Tom Bancroft, and Tony Cervone.
  2. Simone Biles up now on beam.
  3. Just turned the TV on a minute before
  4. I finally did that a few days ago. Trust me, you don't.
  5. The Crysis demo was also very extensive. The whole first mission, with the bit where you emerge from the jungle at the top of a hill, overlooking the huts and pier on the shoreline, with the patrol boat in the sea. The demo also included the Sandbox level editor, so you could give yourself the portable nuke weapon and use it to blow up those huts and trees on the opposite shore! Yes! Such a generous section of the game.
  6. This disc had Rez and MGS2 playable demos, and an Ico video: https://wiki.pcsx2.net/Official_PlayStation_2_Magazine_Demo_17 My friend had that disc when it first came out, and I played it on his PS2. After playing through most of the MGS2 demo (I think I died at the door that's booby-trapped with explosives and laser tripwires), I put on the Rez demo (as I hadn't played the DC version yet) and my friend seemed a bit confused about why I was so enthusiastic about it! Several years later, after I got a PS2 of my own, I bought a copy of that demo disc from a charity shop. Also, the only issue of the Official PS mag I ever bought was the one that had this demo disc: https://wiki.pcsx2.net/Official_PlayStation_2_Magazine_Demo_69 I bought it primarily for the demo of Black, but the disc also had demos for both Shadow of the Colossus and Ico (plus Fahrenheit, and 24: The Game).
  7. The women who asked that Blizzcon question has been interviewed by Kotaku: https://kotaku.com/what-really-happened-at-that-blizzcon-panel-according-1847408469
  8. Also: Don't Let Me Down, Revolution, She's A Woman, Rain...
  9. San Francisco Rush 2049 (Dreamcast) I think that the demo disc had one arcade race, and one stunt room. There was more luck than skill involved in landing the biggest spin, highest scoring stunts, but I found it great fun.
  10. So you don't think that making decisions about what guns to pick up and what to drop adds anything to the game?
  11. Posting this in the right thread this time: After yesterday's joint gold medal in the high jump, today the women's gymnastics floor final had a joint bronze medal. This time it wasn't the competitors' choice though!
  12. Yes, for some reason I never found him as likeable as Federer or Nadal. But that always seemed like an irrational dislike, as until his vaccine-skeptic stuff last year, there wasn't any specific reason I could point to. This is the context - Biles was mentioned in the preamble to the question, and in the Reuters article, her name was mentioned after his quote: https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/sports/tennis-pressure-is-privilege-history-chasing-djokovic-2021-07-28/ As for the second image: minor correction, but his racquet throwing and smashing happened during the third and final set of the match, before he lost, not afterwards. Also, on the subject of the order of events in that second image: I thought that I'd heard that his withdrawal from the doubles match was announced after he lost the singles semifinal, because it meant that he'd be playing the singles bronze match and then the doubles bronze immediately afterwards, whereas if he'd been in one gold medial match they'd be on different days. But I must be misremembering speculation I'd seen, because the official reason was a shoulder injury, and from searching through news articles it looks like his doubles withdrawal was announced after his singles loss.
  13. Update on this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-58052144
  14. I'm not opposed to the reduction in episode count, or a change from a series every 12 months to a series every 15-18 months. Ideally, fewer episodes per year, and longer gaps for writing, would mean more time and effort could be put into each one, leading to better production values and more consistent quality. I emphasise: ideally it would work out like that.
