    High Rise - J G Ballard Adaptation

    Free Fire was a disappointment when you factor in the premise and cast, but i still liked it. I loved Sam Riley's unhinged performance, a real surprise how funny he was. I haven't seen him in anything other than Control, his roles seem more on the moody side. Also got a new appreciation for Arnie Hammer's coolness. The back and forth dialogue makes the opening 25 minutes brilliantly engaging. High Rise did my head in. So artificial, directed like a fragrance advert, things happen in front of you with no reason to care. Thought A Field In England was boring, and that I'd need people to point out where they found it unnerving because it didn't work in that way for me. Was absolutely gripped by Kill List for sure. Knew nothing thankfully, the poster should be avoided like the plague.

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    At the time, when i was 13, i thought 21 hours on Jet Force Gemini was a lot. I remember the moment. My combined pro evo playing time will be in the thousands. Been playing the series for 17 years. The latest one alone in 3 months I've had nearly 500 games online. At 10 minutes each... To my shame, i still enjoy it. I'm still surprised by it, still challenged by it. Yesterday, I was losing and trying to instigate a comeback, Fred of Man United who i play centre mid over Pogba picked up the ball behind the defence but with not enough pace to outrun them to goal. Flicked the ball to Lingard and did a chipped through ball back hoping to be onside, Fred chested it from tight angle and let it drop to floor and i just did a delicate but precise low passing shot into the far corner. A technically difficult goal I was impressed Fred pulled off. I literally reacted like; wow Fred that was good, as though he is actually real, as though this moment of skill actually happened. And now that changes how I view the player in the future. I actually appreciate these players who score late winners or improbable goals when playing for me, when being controlled....by me. There's no grinding, no playing for some eventual aim. I would like to win 6 in a row for once though and do slide and press like a man possessed, and swear out loud like a loon at any conceded goal with things like bitch and motherfucker like I have Tourette's, at first suppressing the need to acknowledge this alters things (i'll just score more goals) and then letting it out that it probably does...but that's only because like I say to myself, i don't mind losing just not to someone who is shit.

    They can be very pretty and stylish and cool but lack real personality. There's too much time consuming technical difficulty to produce a game that it leaves no room for a trashy punk attitude to be expressed. I get severely bored by tame professionalism, of 'very good' stuff, produced, constructed, everything in its right place. I want to be confronted by a game where i think; what the fuck is this? That's incendiary, vicious, all over the place, aggressive, mysterious, subversive. I live for that. The future of games is not following film in being huge productions with 1000 people of various skills involved doing their specific thing, it's following music in allowing deranged obsessive virtuosos to fuck with your head. I want a menu screen where i crawl through a person's brain in search of the 'New Game' option only to stumble across a jumble of words that provoke a horrific memory to occur where a human is suffocating via a plastic bag and all i can do is pace around a room and tolerate it. 'Heh did you download that game'-what game?-'fucking before i even begun i triggered some hellish scene wtf'. Lol oh that..no i found family holiday listed and spent ages going down a slide..wait what?? But i don't even know if it can be done without the results still be comprehended and grappled with as you define what you're experiencing. If something is abstract it becomes..'abstract'. A developer would have to really think about it, pursue it. I still get a rare thrill, like videogames have been reset, like I've never played any before, like the future starts now with it, like it breaks open the medium. And it's so vivid, i know exactly what it's doing which just makes it all the more galling when other games don't take what they did and run with it. I haven't. Tbh, i don't want to shit all over games people like. I'll accept it's more me than them, but i loved videogames as a kid, i guess everyone here did and what happens when you stop caring entirely is you fixate on what games you liked in the past did, and you really really think about it, a lot. I no longer have the desire to play so the only reason would be intrigue. I'm too far gone and it's late and I'm tired and I'm disillusioned with everyone and everything and i want my mind fucked by a game.

    This place isn't for people who don't like videogames anymore - you don't gain any traction from alternative viewpoints, they're just seen as negative by those heavily invested in their hobby. But you're not just picking at genres you don't enjoy, they're ones you used to and which have regressed over decades. I was thinking about F-Zero X on the drive to work this morning (i have the soundtrack on my ipod shuffle so I'm reminded of it most days now) and the game was just fucking brilliant. It's not hard to sum up. It was insanely fast 60fps 30 crafts per race. Now imagine it online! Well 20 years have passed, don't bother. The thing that always amazes me thinking back is how condensed the 90s was. I'll think; i was playing Rock N Roll Racing and Street Racer in 94 and just 4 years later F-Zero X and Wave Race 64. It's a leap that's hard to process in this era of 4 year development cycles and a feeling of fragmentation in popular culture where each decade no longer is defined. It's endlessly stretched, Halo sequels are still being made 16 years later as well are numerous remakes and reimaginings of late 90s breakthrough 3D games. The kind of low budget indie attempts aren't worth bothering with. You're not getting the plus of a fierce fresh individual spirit bursting through, you're getting failed attempts at professionalism by people who don't seem to understand the essence of the brilliance of what they're trying to imitate.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    Like being voted La Liga's worst signing of the season or being charged with perjury and facing 5 years in prison you mean. Or making generic Everyone Underestimated Us comments and prompting articles with titles like 'Do England fans hate Luka Modric? What Croatia star said that supposedly annoyed fans'. No, negativity in response to him potentially winning the Ballon d'Or. I listen to football podcasts daily so can't remember how many instances there are of people (as in pundits and journalists) scoffing at the suggestion, it might be entirely Raphael Honigstein a few times. If not negativity, lack of adulation. Any praise is partly due to him captaining Croatia to the World Cup final and winning Champions Leagues, as opposed to recognising him as an all time great like they do Zidane or Iniesta. I think he shares attributes of both, Iniesta's grace and Zidane's footwork in controlling the ball.

    I'm surprised by the negativity towards Modric, i thought the midfielder as a position was thought of as the most complete and important player on the pitch.Their mobility, stamina, ball retention skills, calmness under pressure, positional awareness, decision making, selfless play. You know how important they are when they're not there and the whole team fails to function anymore without that guy glueing all the play together and making everyone else better. As much as i think Messi is the best every year anyway and that giving it to a midfielder now would mean Xavi and Iniesta were denied yet this other midfielder was not, Modric winning it is like a reminder of the pre Messi-Ronaldo era, when Nedved won it. Raphael Honigstein recently on a podcast was weirdly dismissive of Kante's importance to Chelsea and France in comparison to any striker who scores goals, and the other pundits were like; really??! It always ignores the domination of the midfield, the transitions that take place that allow the chance to score to occur. There's no better sight than a commanding midfielder who is so good his own team mates stand and watch in awe when he manages to evade his way out of trouble and lay the ball off to them. Modric's job isn't to score so doesn't try unless his team really needs it or the chance opens up for him. He has a number of pivotal long range strikes in the latter half of games. His one against Man United after Nani's red card is probably his best. I love players who look like masters when they play. They prove how good they are at the fundamentals of football by how they seem to get better with age. Both Modric and Silva seemed to have improved post 30.
