  1. Fair old while ago, this one. Anyway I'm now convinced this is the best 2D platformer since Mario World. It's brilliant. If it wasn't for the sheer Top 5 of All Time nostalgia I have around World, I'd be tempted to say this could even better it. The momentum that put me off so much to start with clicked after realising it's not Mario and you don't have to Sprint Jump (or roll jump in this case) at all times. Once I started judging distances and the differences between roll jumping, enemy bouncing and regular jumps I realised that DK has this kind of changing dynamic momentum that my old mate Mazza just doesn't have. Basically, let this click and it's brilliant, punishing and fun. I love it. I've done half of the K levels and look forward to polishing the rest of them off. 5 K's out of 5.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    My big thing with it is still that it's a (potentially slightly purposefully) big load of shite that I absolutely loved. I said it in a previous post but Jurassic Park was essentially perfect, it'll never be beaten. I'd rather have a big load of silly shit on screen than people trying and failing to recapture the magic of JP. I do get people having a hostile reaction to it, though. Kong last year just totally put me off from beginning to end. I found it a load of boring nonsense and didn't believe any of it. And yet you could level a lot of the positives I threw at JW2 at Kong and I'd find it difficult to argue. Basically, shit films can be good but sometimes are shit. Step down Kermode, Toad's here for your job.

    I don't know... as a Fulham fan you wait 42 years to play at Wembley and then you're there again at the beginning of the next season. We're going to be getting bored of the place before long.

    Step back, guys, Smitty's back on the forum and he's brought a whole bag of HUM DINGERS with him!

    Xbox One X

    Assassin's Creed Origins was a bit average. Combat, story, gameplay, pretty average all in all. As a game, for me, it was a solid 6/10. Then I got a One X and played it in MAD SHINEEZE HDR mode and it became a walk around and look how brilliant Egypt looks game and I sunk tens of hours into the thing. It's totally graphics > gameplay and I loved it. It's a very specific example, but this gen more than any I've been pausing to take in vistas and noticing how bloody brilliant things look. Graphics are a big part of the medium and 4k HDR is producing some really awe inspiring stuff.
  6. I really enjoyed Origins. Bit of a return to form. This doesn't appear to be doing anything that didn't, seems they've focussed on story stuff which is always the weakest aspect of these things. I'll come back in 6 years time when they've changed it again.

    Halo Infinite

    Madness. Say what you want about the campaign but H5 on a OneX is still one of the better looking/running games this gen. Also Arena is still fantastic.
  8. I found a Crystal Halberd and totally fell in love with it and upgraded it and then found out you can't repait crystal weapons and now I'm sad.

    E3 2018: EA Play - Everything was GARBAGE

    They should have got these two cunts out to explain the concepts of depression and loneliness. Much more effective.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    I'd like to think they'd go a lot further with it. I reckon it'll probably be somewhat, or exactly like this; It'll probably be exactly that. And cost $400 million.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    I would say 100% yes. Even if the journey doesn't get you the end had me laughing out loud in my seat. BONKERS.

    Jared Leto Joker Film. Really.

    Just fuck it off. Fuck off. It's a terrible idea. He's fucking rubbish. Fuck it in the bin.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    I saw it last night at the Multimedia screening. It's fucking astonishingly brilliant and has jumped straight to the top of my list for the year. If you thought the first one was a big stupid dinosaur movie trying to be exactly that then you'll love this. It's so stupid. So stupid. Stupid. Characters make ridiculous decisions, a lot of the script is a bit naff, the best bit is 45 minutes in then the whole thing scales way down, but I properly, genuinely loved it. I cried laughing twice, the scale of the thing for the first hour is insane. So much happening on screen. Bayhem you can follow. You've seen most of it in the trailers but it doesn't make it any less impactful on the big screen all sewn together. The direction/camerawork is genuinely really good. Everything looks HUGE, there are some really nice horror sequences and the action sings throughout. Pratt is Pratt (they've made him a bit more likeable, a slightly stupid Pratt style dick rather than the straight up dick of the first film) and Boobs Dallas Howard does a good job with what she's given. Which isn't a huge amount. And a fair amount of her shots are a bit pervy. Which is a shame. They're never going to make another Jurassic Park. They knocked it out of the part the first time. It's one of the best movies ever made and completely ruins Dinosaurs in Theme Parks movies forever. Of course it does. It's the Jaws of that theme. So I'd much rather Universal keep spending hundreds of millions of pounds of massive stupid dinosaur movies that make me cry laughing than trying to recreate a formula already perfected with JP. Give me The Meg over Jaws 2 any day. Give me Jurassic World 2 over Jurassic Park 2 any day. Go in expecting a fun stupid as hell dinosaur movie and you'll come away gobsmacked. The ending also comes out of nowhere and had me laughing the whole way home. 5 stupid, idiotic, sometimes painful but occasionally massively brilliant stars from me.
