  1. I’ve completed DS1, DS2, DS3, Bloodborne and all the expansions, and in all that time I would say that I’ve parried probably less than ten times. I’ve tried it a few times when the game prompts you to do it, but never after that and it’s never been close to being part of my repertoire of moves. I have a feeling this game isn’t for me.

    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    That said, 'Days Gone' is a terrible name and seems to only be there because they wanted to call it 'Days Gone Bye' but couldn't because the Walking Dead got there first.

    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    Hopefully, this is following the same trajectory as God of War - from joke game nobody cares about, to surprisingly decent single-player epic.

    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    I'm going to stick my neck out and say that the game will have a story, and that story will have an end.
  5. This is not a popular view on here, but I really like Emilia Clarke as an actor. She was fantastic in Solo, and she’s great in GoT, too. Reading about her aneurysm was heartbreaking.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility

    AirMech Arena is a free-to-play game that's already out on Xbox One. Why in God's name would anyone take the time to make the 360 version backwards compatible?
  7. I saw this on eBay, and thought of this thread: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F173658712171 Some dude selling a copied 3.5” disk of Stunt Car Racer on the Amiga with nothing else included for $60. I could imagine it selling if it had the source code on there, or if it was a review copy that differed from the final game in some way, but otherwise this beggars belief.
  8. I dunno, I reckon if you asked Tarantino to make a film for $3m, he'd turn in something like Death Proof without the car sequences, with a lot of people in a room talking at great length. Or The Hateful Eight, I guess. Those films cost loads of money, but I would assume most of that went on the actors and crew. I reckon you'd just have to get him interested in the idea & challenge of a shorter film.
  9. According to Wikipedia, the 70mm roadshow version only has about 6 minutes of extra footage: Presumably the alternate takes run longer, as I would be really surprised if the intermission and overture were 16 minutes long. I can imagine an overture working in the cinema, bit it seems a bit weird to be sat there in your front room listening to the main themes of the soundtrack. And having an intermission is odd on Netflix too, it's not like you can't pause the film anyway to have a piss or get a drink.
  10. I used brackets to specifically separate disabled players from less skillful players.
  11. The Hateful Eight was boring enough already, I really don’t see the appeal in having another twenty minutes of it given that it’ll just be more of those Tarantino back-and-forths in a single set, rather than any new scenes or anything. With most of QT’s recent films, I’d be more excited if they released a cut that was shorter; I’d love to see a 90 minute edit of Django Unchained.

    True Detective - Season 3

    The end was interesting, as it occurred to me afterwards that Hays could have been wrong about the woman at the end; the exposition that led him to her was after all delivered by a vision of his dead wife that may or may not have been a product of his deteriorating mind. Hays is hardly a reliable narrator at that point (if he ever was one - neither he nor West were ever particularly good or skilled cops, and seem to have been pretty OK with lying and concealing things to cover their own tracks). Ali was a brilliant old-man actor, Stephen Dorff less so. Dorff looked older in the 1980 scenes than he did in the 1990 storyline, probably because of the strange wig he wore in the former.
  13. I cannot help but laugh at anyone who claims to appreciate Dark Souls II, and yet hasn't Buddy Rich-ed their way through it on SL1 in the Covenant of Champions using the Rock Band drum kit as a controller. After I killed the Ivory King - cautiously softened him up with a straight 4/4 rock beat, before seguing into a jazzy 5/4 time signature to put him off-guard, breaking through with a bit of cross-sticking and some hi-hats, and finally finishing him off with a devastating series of fills - I paused and looked up. The ghost of Miyazaki appeared in a cloud far above me and nodded with an enigmatic smile as if to say he was passing the torch of TrueGamership to me, which I found odd as he is not dead and had at best limited input into the DSII expansions.
  14. These threads turn up every so often, and always seem to end up with the self-styled TrueGamers like Fallows getting really cross at the idea that games could be made easier to accommodate disabled (or even just less skilled) players. Last time, IIRC, people were losing their shit about the fact that Call of Duty: Black Ops III let people choose any campaign level they liked, even if they hadn’t completed the preceding ones, as if this would forever undermine the integrity of the Black Ops III campaign and the associated achievement system. Baffles me that people care whether or not someone else they will never meet played a game under less stringent difficulty settings than they would choose for themselves. It makes me wonder if, deep down, these people know their Wonderful 101 Pure Platinum ranks are meaningless, and this gatekeeping is an attempt to fend off anything that would tacitly remind them of this fact.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    I’ve been in two minds about this series, but that most recent episode was wall to wall incredible. I almost started choking with laughter during the bit with the “CPR” doll, where he was lip-syncing to ‘Another one bites the dust’.
