    Star Trek Discovery

    Pike feels too similar to Abrams universe Kirk in that trailer: perpetual, smug smile, ‘let’s try to have some fun’, and his own unique variation of engaging warp drive ‘Punch I-...I mean, hit it!’

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot

    Yeah, this wasn’t a weak series that could easily be improved upon, but one that was surprisingly strong for most of its run. Existing fans of Buffy will likely regard it as radioactive, especially as Fox never bothered to release a Blu-Ray of the series that wasn’t complete shite.

    Prey (2017) - Update and Mooncrash DLC available now!

    I’ve completed Prey twice, so obviously enjoy it, but you’re not wrong. The basic, spidery mimics who disguise themselves as objects are a fantastic gameplay mechanic, but other enemies are largely homogenous. Contrast your sense of dread when exploring a System Shock 2 level to one of Prey’s and it’s like night and day, largely because SS2’s enemies were so creepy and menacing. Similarly, hull breeches aside, a lot of Prey’s environments look like someone’s had a bit of a party but hasn’t cleaned up yet - they still maintain a corporate sterility which, combined with the shadow monster enemy pool, can easily inflict exactly the wrong kind of one-two punch on a player.

    The Expanse - officially saved by Amazon

    Do you mean real-debrid? As I can totally see how a phone would autocorrect that. I’d say real-debrid is essential, whereas it used to be a nice extra if you wanted even more choice. Feels like the glory days for Kodi are over, but RD definitely helps.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    I suppose what bothers me is that it could signify a huge, jarring shift in the lore. Yes you have these folklore monsters, but they can be justified away by radiation exposure (even though it’s only been twenty years). The Scorch Beasts however, sound like they were freed from their underground captivity, Reign of Fire style, where they existed before the bombs even dropped. Could be I’m reading too much into it, but if that really is the explanation then...yikes.

    I wish it were. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gi8PTAJ2Hjs Watch from around 28:12
  9. The website name couldn’t be more apt.
  10. The last two TNG movies were god awful and not how I wanted to see Picard go out, but I agree Stewart would be hard pressed to better/add to his performance on the TNG TV series.
  11. It was actually season 2, but with such convoluted timelines I can see why someone might think we’re in season 10.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    The best part is it’s made by the rather excellent British firm ‘The Wand Company’, as opposed to someone Bethesda found in China who can’t even get the fucking colour right.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    So one of the making of/behind the scenes/whatever videos that came out has a developer giving a brief synopsis of Fallout 76’s plot: the nuclear detonations opened great rifts in the earth from which these giant, bat-like creatures called ‘Scorchbeasts’ emerged. The only way to stop this entirely plausible menace is to close said rifts with further nuke strikes. What is...I don’t even...
