    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Expert Journey is pretty savage. I wish there was a more obvious cue when your zone metre is full, when you are totally focused on the blocks it's really easy to miss and can be the difference between a good score and a game over.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Hmm, frankly I thought Normal was too easy, not sure how much easier they could make it and still have the essential feel of Tetris in there. But then obsessively playing Gameboy Tetris is one of my earliest memories, I think it was the first game I ever 'completed' so I suppose I am not remotely coming from the same place as someone who hasn't played much of it. The best tip I can give if the speed gets too much is to make full use of the infinite spin to give yourself time to think - they didn't have that on the old Tetris games so it isn't intuitive if you haven't played it much since the 90s. Anyway, as ever I just fall apart as soon as it hits about speed 13 on regular 150 line marathon, I just stop going for tetrises or combos just to make sure I can get everything in a safe spot. Rubbish!

    There is some way to unlock it permanently, it would seem. But it is a secret.

    It's actually on blu ray, £6 for a great special edition. I've seen it in a cinema a few times as part of a m horror marathon I go to (curated/organised by the guy who made Calibre), it's wild with an audience.

    Oh and the new series of Dan playing Goldeneye - Dan's Bond impersonation sounding like Ringo Starr with a cold is beautifully awful.

    How are folk finding the site redesign? It seems to be pretty unpopular but I'm not sure why, I think it's a lot better. Although it's lacking some personality for sure.

    Following on from the Demons films your next task should be to watch Pieces. Even more absurdity. Greatest cinema experience of my life that was.
  8. Oh it got a lot of poor reviews at the time - critics were comparing it to Mass Effect 2, a deeply unfair comparison which unfortunately doomed it. The 'action' parts felt terrible at the time if you were thinking of it like a shooter with rpg elements as ME2 is, rather than a pure RPG that looks like a shooter as that was.

    Finished Journey mode on normal with crap scores, that was exhilarating. This is a key skill for higher level tetris play and is how you fall down the rabbit hole of t-spins and such. Which I can do in theory but rarely see the opportunity in practice. I always recommend folk watch stuff like the Tetris world championships to have your brain broken. I am currently 2,629th in the world at Marathon, my greatest achievement!

    Christie has struggled to get chances to play for us until now and was possibly going to leave in the summer, so it is great to see him taking his chance so well now. On another note, struggling to believe how well Teemu Pukki is doing for Norwich, a very ordinary player who was never close to being good enough for the Scottish premiership.

    Widows Steve McQueen of 12 Years a Slave fame working with the author of Gone Girl to make a heist film based on a Lynda La Plante series seems like a very weird combination, but it works! Excellent film that I won't say much about because I didn't know much about it and enjoyed it that much more. Brilliant cast, especially Viola Davis and a really good performance from Michelle Rodriguez. This is the second great unconventional heist film I've seen this year after American Animals. I am very glad this was a film, would be very easy to make it a slow paced TV show. Daniel Kaluuya is terrifying while Viola Davis' West Highland Terrier should get an Oscar. 4.5/5 McQueen is such a good director.
  13. People who play kill confirmed but never confirm kills, what is the deal.

    This is amazing. I can't even imagine it in VR. I love the way the speed rises and falls not so much to fuck with you (which it does!) but to synchronise with the ambience and music. I am actually thinking of showing this my Tetris-loving Pink Floyd-loving pensioner mum, but it might blow her mind
