    Valve - Soon Shipping Other Companies' Games Again

    I like how that channel has slowly gotten more and more crotchety, extending even to the video titles themselves. Hazards of building your Youtube career on a company that never releases anything, I guess.

    Titans - DC's Teen heroes headed to TV?

    Apparently it's written by the guy who wrote Batman and Robin Googling turned up this article calling him out

    Valve - Soon Shipping Other Companies' Games Again

    So an ex-Valve dev wrote a big long thing across a million twitter posts about his experience. Most is about navigating the industry, and the things you'll have to deal with (like they have tactics for finding work after mass layoffs), but some is clearly specific to Valve. There's more, about them using estate agents who they use to help people relocate as backchannels so they can pressure workers who have mortgages knowing they can't quit easily, even though that may be illegal. What a surprise their libertarian ethos results in more worker exploitation.

    Legion - X-Men TV spin-off

    Yeah, I felt glad at the ending that it redeemed itself a bit and hadn't wasted my time, but still feel it was poorer than S1 and am not really interested in where it goes in future. I felt the same degeneration from one series to the next in Fargo too.

    Neill Blomkamps..... ROBOCOP!

    District 9 is uneven as fuck and only got praise for launching in the middle of the writers strike when everything else was worse.

    Neill Blomkamps..... ROBOCOP!

    I can't believe yet another nostalgia reboot by a shitty director has gotten pages of excited praise, what number of times is this that you've fallen for it rllmuk?
  11. The Switch port looked pretty rough in that trailer, framerate looked to be around 20, and they weren't showing off the more recent, more ambitious areas, just corridors. I wouldn't hold out much hope for that being supported for long, although at least you're not out any money if it isn't.
  12. I laughed at a comment that called Railjack "Free of Thieves"

    What games did you complete? 2018 Edition

    Inside - I enjoyed this, but there's not a huge amount to talk about because the mechanics are light and simple, and the plot is next to nonexistent. Aaero - I also enjoyed this Rez-like, the only annoying thing about it being the "obstacles" that block off a certain bit of the track, they killed me more than anything (and judging by the leaderboards dwindling after these levels, the same went for most people). They would have been better to cut them entirely, or at least stick them on the harder difficulties. Destiny 2 - They give you the first half of the campaign as the free trial and so I did the second half (and all the adventures) as the free weekend. As a linear shooter it's middling, as what it's trying to be, it feels a generation behind the Division. The environments are pretty but there's nothing in them to reward exploration, and they're also distinctly last-gen, with small arenas linked by tunnels for the PS3's 512MB of RAM. RPG elements are nonexistent. The storytelling has an intended audience age of 8-10 (which made all the gambling pushing feel extra skeevy). It's basically coasting on Bungies reputation and its combat system.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    I thought that was a good piece, it also explains the backlash you see to Marvels quips, there's a certain segment that identify with the heroes of movies for a vicarious power fantasy, and anything that undermines their self-seriousness cannot stand. It basically explains those bizarre people who were fans of the DCEU, right up until the movies stopped being a joyless wasteland. Bit off to call them racist or sexist though SMD, they're just gatekeeping at worst.
