  1. Far Cry 5

    Yeah, I do enjoy the Far Cry games and this one is included. It is a keeper since the basic mechanics are really good fun and some of the Arcade stuff I have tried so far has been really good. The DLC should be pretty good as well. One thing though, it seems to have a lot less outposts than previous games. I could be misremembering but in Far Cry 3 and 4 the outposts were the life blood of the game but here they do not seem overly present. We also seem to have lost the 'boss' outposts from Far Cry 4 which were good fun.
  2. Smallville doesn't have much luck with its supporting actors staying out of jail. I think the guy who played Pete Ross was in prison for a bit due to drugs.
  3. Deadpool 2 - 2018

    You're just some clown, dressed up as a sex toy.
  4. Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    I'd wager we may well get a semi trailer for Avengers 4 as part of Avengers 3 credits.
  5. Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    Which if that is what happens, I think has the potential of just leaving this film on a bit of a damp squib of an ending since you know it is not actually how things end and it'll get actually resolved in the next film. Hopefully it will be a bit more sophisticated than what I am imagining.
  6. Justice League

    Indeed, apparently Paramount insisted he kept it but I am sure a bucketful of cash from Warner Bros could have solved that objection. Or just bite the bullet and delay the film so that you can reshoot the scenes after his MI6 duties have ended. Apparently it is much easier to add CGI to scenes rather than to remove stuff with it.
  7. Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    I am looking forward to it but think it could be underwhelming. Just knowing that there is a Avengers film next year makes me think that this will still feel like one half of a story. To their credit, nothing is really known about the film next year but my gut just thinks the two films are not as self-contained as they are hinting at. I also reckon all the amazing set pieces and character team ups may be saved until the next one as well. Hopefully there is a lot about this film which has not yet been shown in the trailers. Pure speculation about this and Avengers 4:
  8. Formula One - 2018 Season

    Ironically, Lewis actually gained more points on Vettel (8) than he would have had he won the race and Seb came in second (7).
  9. Sea of Thieves - Get Yer Booty!

    Be interesting to see if there has been a significant drop off since launch. Anecdotally, it seems to have been quite high profile for a week and then completely disappeared. Rare really needed a more constant stream of additions during the first few weeks to keep everyone invested.
  10. Yep, I'd dearly love one or both of the Amped games. The disappointment of Steep just made me yearn for Amped.
  11. Xbox One Console Thread

    Surprised to see Burnout Remastered in a sale so quickly. Although I've still got hours of the EA Access trial left....
  12. Makes the $160m for three seasons of the Grand Tour seems like a bargain in comparison.
  13. Far Cry 5

    I am enjoying this at the moment although I am not completely sold on it. As usual, the gun play is lovely and they have nailed the combat. Takedowns seem a lot less fun/inventive than previous games. Yes, it is not realistic that a sheriff would be knifing everyone, but it was never realistic that a tourist would be doing that either. Also, the number of outposts seems quite low. Looking online Far Cry 5 has 20, compared to 24 for Far Cry 4 and 34 for Far Cry 3. I'm still in John's region, but I also haven't seen any massive style 'boss' outposts that we saw in Far Cry 4. I think outposts are the best part of the series so disappointed to see less of them. In their place we do have quite a few other locations to explore to the world is far from barren but approaching a new outpost and figuring out how to take it was the best part of the previous games. I've also had enough of the sodding planes shooting me to bits. Particularly when trying to take an outpost stealthily and being spotted just from the aircraft. I think a short period of time when they are targeting you could have been a fun bit (perhaps until you've destroyed them) but not unlimited aircraft all the time. I understand that various wing men can help and that they may stop once the region is clear but currently they are way to frequent and make trying to be stealthy, or just enjoy the non-combat potion of the game, incredibly trying. It is a fun game and so far the Arcade portion is delivering on the lack of outposts feeling but in a few ways it does feel like Ubisoft have taken 2 steps forward and 1 step back. Still fairly early in the game so will revise my view going forwards but I think Ubisoft really need to look at what works. Lots of varieties of Outposts, with different ways to approach them. Good. Great combat and action. Good. Drug fuelled missions. Bad. Forced Missions. Bad. Terrible forced story. Bad. I also think the crafting seems fairly pointless this time around. I've barely used the secondary crafting menu and crafting explosives just seems luck of the draw depending on what I've randomly picked up. I think the crafting could be easily got rid of and it would help streamline the game.

    Although there are two different to Far Cry 5 right?
