  1. Christ, the second trailer to this has given you literally the whole fucking plot of the movie away. I mean, I can vaguely remember what happened due to the originals, but that's possibly the worst spoiler-laden trailer I've ever seen.
  2. I did wonder if there'd been some sort of 'fiddling' with it, as whilst it's still tough, I'm constantly getting enough progression to make it incredibly enjoyable!
  3. Sheesh. I've had this wonderful thing since launch and quite honestly the initial learning curve felt too much at that time. Thought I'd give it another go - mainly because it's one of the most beautiful games I've ever played (along with a glorious soundtrack), and I'm absolutely absorbed by it. Finding the going tough, but surprisingly fair... Well, until I gave the first main boss a go...some more grinding to do before I'm able to beat the bugger, but the animation on him (and his size!) is such that at the moment I don't care so much. It's so good. SO. GOOD.
  4. It's an odd one. I'm of a similar position to the folk who think the animations are practically perfect, and after enjoying Voltron enormously I've been having hopes that maybe we'd get a new Avatar series on Netflix. Maybe it'll happen one day.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Has there been a delay in releasing this over here in the UK digitally? It was up on pre-order yesterday on Google play with a release today, but now it's basically vanished from the front page, with only a 'add to wishlist' reference.
  6. Reading the posts about not liking Witcher 3...I have a deep love for the game, and think it’s possibly the best game I’ve ever played. Horizon comes along...everything about it screams that it will be a game that I’ll love possibly even more than Witcher, and yet...I couldn’t get along with it whatsoever. I still don’t quite know why. Alloy is a great lead character, the graphics are fab. The combat is considerably better than Witcher (at least, it seemed so to me), yet it leaves be absolutely cold. It’s something of a cross to bear.
  7. Online gaming. Anything that has me joining up with other people leaves me utterly cold. I'm a full on hermit when it comes to my gaming pursuits.

    Jesus is always free - you just need to let him into your heart. I just stick to drinking the wine.

    It’s one of those games I’ll eventually pick up cheap because I’m a sucker for pretty visuals, but it’s more or less like the previous ones so I can take it or leave it. This version of Lara Croft is such a thoroughly miserable and unlikeable soul to me I’ve always found it a chore to get through them. They’re solid games I guess, but there’s just no soul in ‘em. The Uncharted games have always been the measure I use with these things, and especially with Lost Legacy they showed you can have incredible ladies in leading roles, gorgeous visuals, comedy and not get all mopey about it.

    That's true - I didn't see the match, so hadn't picked up on that charming piece of info.

    The french open can be very similar on occasion

    I’ve always had a fair amount of time for Ramos as an umpire. He’s often had abuse hurled at him, but he remains cool and impassive. And bloody good that he called out the coaches for their tactics. If this helps stamp it out, then I’m all for it.
  13. I'm rather hoping we're going to have a bit of a heist movie vibe running through a part of Avengers 4... I can imagine Thanos taking a kip, having put the glove on his bedside table. Ant-man will shrink in, grab it and get out quickly. Presumably things will go a little wrong, but that general idea :p
  14. It's a decent game. But honest opinion is that the music almost completely destroys the atmosphere of the thing. It's pretty awful. I understand it's all traditional and all that guff, but effectively it's like the brief was to make the thing sound like all the other ones, but make sure you ignore anything that might even attempt to convey the tensions on the screen. You got that? We want completely inappropriate music all the time please. Lovely.
