    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    That explains the Captain America Winter Soldier steelbook I've seen. Hmm. Might wait and buy that.

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    I'm torn on these I like the first, love the second, and don't care about the third. Annoyingly they don't appear to have separate releases in the UK

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    Bumping this as I've watched three exceptional looking films over the last weekend. Aqua Man looks stunning in HDR, Spiderverse is incredible and the surprise was the 40th anniversary of Alien that looks absolutely sensational in places. There's a little bit of add looking grain in a few scenes, but it looks fantastically good for its age.
  4. Hot damn this looks incredible in 4K. Watched it three times over the weekend and seeing it again with a friend tonight. It's probably my favourite superhero movie and is definitely the best Spider-Man movie now (sorry Spider-Man 2, I still love you. Just not as much).
  5. Woah, a lot of characters lost their plot armour this episode. It's going to be a rough ride over the next couple of weeks.
  6. Here's the latest ten announced for the US. Hopefully that includes Pal land. Earthworm Jim Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck Contra: Hard Corps Streets of Rage 2 Thunder Force III Super Fantasy Zone Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master Landstalker If this has Devil Crash and the Mega Drive port of Strider I might lose it. I reckon we'll get Aladdin and Lion King as well seeing both movies are out this year.

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    What about Andrew Braybrook? As his game features prominently on most of your banners etc. Surely he’s getting paid royalties alongside Jeff?

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    Out of interest, is Matt one of the creators who benefits like Jeff Minter does?

    Magic The Gathering Arena

    So has anyone else picked this up since the last update? I've currently got enough free gold for around 47 packs from the new set, and may be able to amass a little more before it hits towards the end of the month. There's a lot more options available for new players compared to when it started and it's relatively easy to craft a single competitive deck. I've been spending most of my time draft as it's a good way to learn that side of the game and it's also handy for rare-grabbing. I've pumped a fair bit of cash into the game now, far more than I did on Hearthstone but as I play it every day (for at least 30 minutes) it feels like good value to me. I've not played Hearthstone for a few months so I guess I need to see how much dust my Hall Of Fame cards have generated for me!

    Shazam! - Non-grimdark DC movie

    I did enjoy that

    Shazam! - Non-grimdark DC movie

    Shazam starts off strongly but inevitably descends into cgi nonsense for its third act like, so many other superhero movies. It largely works thanks to likeable performances from its young cast and an utterly charming Zachary Levi who takes huge delight in his character’s varied super powers. It’s a weird uneven film, though and most of its funniest moments have already been seen in the trailer, Mark Strong is also wasted as token bad guy, too. I do sometimes wish I liked comic books a little more, as there are certain moments in this, which I could imagine would likely excite longtime fans, but all I can do is judge it as a movie and as a movie Shazam is effectively Big-lite. I still enjoyed it though. 3/5 My favourite bit was
  12. That's a really cool idea!

    Yup, I’m super excited about the new set it looks like it is really going to shake things up.

    Shmups

    I'd have to disagree with that. There's a large number of Darius games and to release just four on a compilation while purposely holding additional games in the series back for an insanely expensive limited edition is just a slight on the consumer. I love the Darius games but I've not purchased this because it's been made as an exercise in greed. It's also the main reason why I probably won't pick up the second and third Psikyo collections. Taito should have taken a leaf out of Capcom's book and created something similar to its Street fighter anniversary collection.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    On something of a roll at the mo! Yoshi's Crafted World (Switch) Really, really enjoyed this, I love how the aesthetic is incorporated into the actual level design and it's surprisingly tough in places. There's some great boss fights, lots of cool one-off levels and loads and loads of secrets to discover. Great replay value as well. Easily the best Yoshi game since Yoshi's Island. Astal (Saturn) I've always wanted to play this as it looks absolutely exquisite in places (although I'm not a fan of the main character design). While it has some really entertaining boss fights the actual controls are a little floaty and there are some really annoying platforming sections that are quite frustrating. Mainly though the actual design of each stage is incredibly bland and I can't see I'll be returning to it. I enjoyed it, but that's about it. Will put it up for sale me thinks. Completed so far
