    Death's Gambit. Everything was Souls.

    Despite being a gibbering dullard at the Souls games, I'm not finding this too bad! But I think it's because i'm good at platform action games, and this has that one element that turns iit all around so you have the power: the ability to jump over stuff, including baddies

    Death's Gambit. Everything was Souls.

    I chose the Assassin, and he seems well-balanced to me. I'm on the third section - can't remember what it's called, but it's after the horse tunnel (!) and is a buy/sell area. Swapping out weapons and sensibly upgrading stats seems very important. I think my character is level 12 or something already? I couldn't beat Owl King without a Longsword (or the two -5% health tomes I found) plus a load of loot (helm and shield particularly) and even then it was 'only just'.

    Onto the second section, ran into the: Loving this right now - the difficulty seems pitched just right, with enemies conquerable once you apply a bit of thought and skill. Onward!

    Emulation becomes more and more important as the years go by. Try playing 90% of arcade games without the ROMs, or any licenced game whose licence with the owner's IP has expired: Outrun 2, Afterburner Climax, Alien vs. Predator, any Capcom X-Men game, the Konami X-Men game, Daytona USA... the list goes on and on. The short termism of licencing will only get more pronounced as the years go by, too.

    I've had a quick go. Early impressions: gorgeous artwork and animation, and great enemy designs. The colours are lovely. The framework of combat and levelling is very Souls, but level layout and movement is far fast and much more Castlevania-like. There are the usual nails sub-bosses you'd expect scattered about, blocking certain routes. 60% of enemies or so need at least a little thought to beat, with the remaining 30 or 40% more straightforward one or two hit kill fodder you'd expect from CV. Impressive so far, even though I absolutely suck at this type of game

    Great scenes in disappointing movies

    Cool. Yeah, it does some interesting stuff for sure. Out of interest, what are your thoughts on the comic, and also of Sucker Punch?

    Watchmen? Well, yeah. It's not a disaster, but it's full of flaws.

    The opening credits of Watchmen. It's the closest Snyder gets to converting a comic about the construction of comics to a film about the construction of film (which is what would need to happen for it to work).

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    It's nowhere near as good as Deep Blue Sea!

    Your unearthed gems

    Two great ones that rarely get a mention. The fact James Spader's in both is just a weird coincidence! White Palace A steamy but down to earth romantic drama, with Spader as a Yuppie widower who falls for an older, blousy waitress. They don't make these sorts of dramas anymore - indie drama doesn't seem to bother itself with romance, and mainstream romantic films are just blah wish fulfilment guff. This has unironic saxophone on the soundtrack, and everything! The Music of Chance I love me some Paul Auster. His novels are all about realism colliding with magical realism, causing a blend of both favourable and heartbreaking coincidences. This one is about a man (Mandy Patinkin) drifting on an infinite road trip, who manages to fall in with a conman and two-time loser (Spader), and they work out a scheme to hustle poker. They run into a couple of oddball rich recluses, and things take a distinct change for the strange. It's melancholy and off key, and - again - the sort of thing you rarely see these days as it doesn't easily slot into any one genre. Worth seeking out!

    I know, I said it just up there ^^^^^

    The HD/Blu-ray Thread

    Neither would I, as it's not one They're both adaptations of the same novel. I remember in Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, Siskind recounts a tale where supposedly Friedkin invited Clouzot to a screening (the first? Can't remember) and fauned all over him, calling him 'master' with Clouzot lapping it up like a massive narcissist. Neither of them come out well from that particular anecdote, but as most stuff in that stuff is meant to be bollocks, I choose to ignore it

    Fair play! @Harsin imma let you finish, but IM3 is an OK film per se, but a mediocre to bad MCU film.
