  1. Surely it's more about no-one else actually hearing the things rather than hearing them and judging them unworthy. There's too much music these days for the results of polls like this to be anything other than completely scattered outside of a handful of albums by bigger artists, especially when there aren't that many people submitting lists. Placements are always going to be decided more by visibility than anything else.
  2. It definitely helps that it's possibly the best pop song in existence but the moment Harvey Keitel's head hits the pillow might've been the point in my teens when I realised that films can be more than just disposable popcorn fodder.
  3. Out of all the records on my Amazon wishlist my mum bought me the Black Bastards reissue for Christmas. I thought that was a pretty funny choice at the time but now it feels even more weird. Gonna blast fuck out of it to bring the new year in.
  4. I wouldn't give up on the genre totally, I probably was the audience for PoE having played lots of the older isometric PC RPGs and I felt the same about it as you did despite dutifully chugging through seventy hours of it. Torment I sacked off pretty quickly. None of the 'revival' games in that genre have really nailed it for me but the classics are still pretty great.
  5. I'm very apprehensive about the box set itself too, unfortunately. He's been tampering with stuff Ashes of Time/George Lucas style again. By all means, treat your work of art as 'fluid' but at least give people the versions they know and love alongside them.

  7. Ha, yeah I'm very excited for the box set. His 90s run is about as good a decade as any director has ever had, I reckon. In the conversation with Ozu's 50s, Altman's 70s etc. anyway. His style isn't quite there yet but I have a big soft spot for As Tears Go By as well.
  8. This also has to be up there. Bonus points for being brought on with a couple of minutes left specifically to take one.
  9. I've hammered this over the past couple of days and just got all the fates solved in 8hrs 50 mins. Brilliant game. This and The Outer Wilds are rare shining beacons on the 'giving the player enough credit to allow them to feel like they're figuring things out on their own' front. At times it did feel a bit brute force-y but you generally get to the point where that's possible through juggling a complex process of elimination largely in your head so even when it was that way it still managed to be satisfying. I can see why so many either bounced off it or came close though, I guess
  10. Pretty much all comparisons come down to 'useful shorthand' really, I'm not sure it's worth nitpicking over unless it's wildly innacurate. I mean, you yourself said it was inspired by Mirror's Edge. For anyone who continued playing the first ME beyond the initial playthrough or hammered the time trials figuring out the best route was also the puzzle and you'd probably be hitting restart every time you messed up, which would be often until you'd really got it down. There was ME the narrative experience (which I didn't care about much, I found the writing and characterisation fairly
  11. Although I love Mirror's Edge etc. I wasn't very convinced by the demo of this a few months back but since I had an Epic voucher about to expire I thought I'd give it another shot. It doesn't even have a proper full screen mode, despite the fact the demo did, so can only be played in some weirdly scaled borderless blur-o-vision. Apparently it's being looked into but it's a pretty shoddy first impression.
  12. GGXXAC+R (christ..) had more players than SFV and DBFZ last night, peaking at 2300. Most other games with retrofitted rollback got a relative bump but that's mental. Usually it's going from like, 10 players to 80 or something.
