    Fallout 4 - VR Coming Soon

    I dunno, it can be a very beautiful looking game sometimes. Here's a couple of recent shots I took... These are on a One X. I've also just installed, not long after the above two shots were taken, a mod called "Natural & Atmospheric Commonwealth". It's been in my favourites for ages but I've just never got round to installing it. Probably because the one screenshot on the mod page doesn't have that in-your-face "wow" factor. But I wish I'd installed it earlier, it's amazing. It's lead me to uninstall all the separate lighting and weather mods I was running (including True Storms, never thought I'd uninstall that!!). You don't need any of them. The mod does everything and has loads of settings where you can tinker with colours, saturation, brightness, remove fog from interiors, darker nights etc. (But there's a good default preset to start you off with everything.) Some of the effects are beautifully subtle, especially sun rises and sun sets. The weathers are as good as True Storms as well. And it's small, at just under 20mb. Highly recommended.

    The HD/Blu-ray Thread

    Are there any 4k blu-rays out there that are particularly good, that'll blow my socks off? I've just got a 4k telly and want to help justify my purchase.

    Marvel's Iron Fist (Netflix)

    The show’s not perfect but I still prefer it to Luke Cage. And it really seemed like it might step up a gear given how season 2 ended. I think, ultimately, Finn Jones was miscast.

    Well, it took a week. I have a 4k telly being delivered tomorrow.

    Best WWII Movie

    "Went the Day Well?" A great film by Ealing Studios, which also happens to be a fascinating piece of propaganda as it was released slap bang in the middle of the war, in 1942: the movie is extremely confident of victory over Hitler, although it never shies away from the psychological impact of the villagers having to defend our green and pleasant land from the nazis. Jack Higgins pinched some bits from it for his book The Eagles Has Landed, which of course became a film as well. I prefer "Went the Day Well?" if only for the fact that we get to see a young Thora Hird shoot a few nazis. In parts, it feels a little bit like an alternate version of Dad's Army, one in which the Germans actually invade. I love the opening as well...

    The Walking Dead!

    The tone of this felt different at times, like people were having proper conversations. I think Daryl maybe spoke more in this episode than he has in the last two seasons!

    Better Call Saul!

    He came across as a sensitive soul and went a little bit stir crazy. Most of his dealings were with Mike with whom he had built up a friendship of sorts. So even though he was doing wrong by breaking out, he probably rationalised in his more fragile state of mind that his buddy Mike would smooth things over. It felt totally believable to me.

    Microsoft buying Obsidian Entertainment?

    I’d love to see a big budget sequel to Alpha Protocol as well. Great game, despite its flaws.

    Better Call Saul!

    Fantastic end to the series. Just about perfect.

    No Man's Sky

    You know when you build a base and you build one of the workstations, Construction, Weapons etc. and the workstation and the guy stood next to it are floating above the floor? Are they going to fix that? It's the most mildly irritating thing ever.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    For me, way too close to the release of RDR2. I wouldn't have a hope in hell of getting it finished before then. Christmas sounds good.
