  1. I still get something from CoD after all these years, but I really wish they’d turn the volume down a bit. I chose my class at the start of a match earlier and the announcer says ‘Let’s FUCKING do this’ or something to that effect. Ugh.
  2. Played a little TDM this morning on Xbox One X. Seems like business as usual, but there’s some really jarring slow texture load in happening. Stuff like that doesn’t usually bother me, but it was pretty rough.
  3. So you can only play it early if you bought a physical copy then? Hurrumph.
  4. So, just to clarify, the digital version will be playable at 5pm tomorrow?

    Holmes and Watson - Ferrell and Reilly

    Cool! What did you do on it? Couple of friends of mine were part of the writing team.

    Good shout, think it was my second. First was Clash of the Titans!

    I’m even more amazed that you didn’t take it on holiday with you!

    Spider-Man PS4 - Insomniac swings into action!

    Not impressed here either unfortunately. I’ve played this game 100 times before. When are we going to start seeing something different and new coming out of game development? It’s as if they think more automatically equals better. More moves, more skill trees, more collectibles. It’s just a mess of uninspiring stuff. Activate these radio towers. Collect all these backpacks littered around this massive map. Fight hundreds of these uninspired balaclava wearing henchmen. Solve a bunch of these silly little circuit puzzles. When are developers going to shake up these tired formulas? What worries me the most is the amount of high praise it seems to be getting, it just reinforces the idea that this is perfectly acceptable and what people want. Looks pretty though, I’ll give it that.
  9. Ive been wanting to watch it for a while, but after all the controversy with Casey Affleck, I think I’d find it difficult to judge it fairly. That may seem ridiculous, but I can’t help it. Probably be an interesting topic for a discussion to be honest.

    I wouldn’t go that far personally, but I thought certain bits were laughable. The more I’ve thought about this since I saw it, the more disappointed I am. It started so strongly, I really thought I was going to end up watching something deep and memorable.
  11. I’ll probably get run out of town for this one as I know it’s a real polarizer, but I reckon Swiss Army Man is a bit of a modern classic. I’m going to run away with my fingers in my ears now.
  12. For me it isn’t about the sun not coming up, but about how it’s portrayed when it does. I thought Blade Runner 2049 dealt with this brilliantly, by using pollution to give it a grittiness.
  13. Its a very fair question, but as I said in my post, I’m not entirely sure. All I can say is something that didn’t follow such a familiar structure.
  14. What they've shown in those 48 minutes is fundamentally disappointing for me, because it doesn't look to be doing anything new or different from a gameplay perspective. You may question what it is I'd like to be seeing, and I'll happily admit that i'm not entirely sure, but what I do know is that it all seems very familiar. Technically and graphically it looks good (although I'm not seeing anything we don't see right now in terms of character design and animation), but there comes a point when going from point A to point B to meet someone, who then tells you to kill some dudes at point C gets tiring. My guess would be that that's the kind of gameplay loop we'll be looking at throughout Cyberpunk 2077, because they haven't led us to believe otherwise (if there was a lot more to it than that then surely they would've shown it, or at least talked about it, in this first showing). And I should stress that there's not necessarily anything wrong with that, loads of gamers love that sort of experience, but it does seem to be fitting the same mould as many other games over the past decade. I know I sound like a bit of a killjoy saying all this, and I promise I do appreciate the amazing level of work that's been poured into it, any game of this size and scope should be applauded. I guess I was just hoping for something a bit more...surprising?
  15. I'm interested to know what they actually meant by this.
