    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    Some very basic ground rules, when posting about a completion, if people could list their previously completed titles in a spoiler that'd help keep the thread from just turning into a series of ever-increasing lists to scroll through, think of the poor mobile users. Also, it'd be nice if people wrote something about what they've played as it's always good to hear opinions (especially for games that don't have their own threads). Obviously how much you write is up to you, but if it generates some discussion, even better! Completed doesn't have to mean 100% completion, that would be madness. Don't get too obsessed. If you are playing a game that you find you are hating....just add it to your abandoned pile. Don't waste your time on something you no longer enjoy. Post mortems on last years gaming to be kept at the end of the 2018 thread if possible so as not to split the discussion. Oh, and Happy New Year, Previous years 2018 https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/303667-what-games-did-you-complete-2018-edition/& 2017 https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/296730-what-games-did-you-complete-2017-edition/& 2016 http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/290301-what-games-did-you-complete-2016-edition/ 2015 https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/282982-what-games-did-you-complete-in-2015/ 2014 http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/276281-what-games-did-you-finish-in-2014/ 2013 https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/267607-what-games-did-you-finish-in-2013/ 2012 https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/256988-what-games-did-you-finish-in-2012/ 2011 https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/237405-what-games-did-you-finish-in-2011/ 2010 http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/236931-what-games-did-you-finish-in-2010/ 2009 http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/219264-what-games-did-you-finish-in-2009/ 2008 https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/199358-games-youve-completed-this-year-2008/
  3. It still got watched whereas the poor reception of The Last Jedi has been blamed for the poor takings for Solo. The GoT but Star Wars trilogy will go ahead.
  4. Good news for me and the one other person who liked it, this is still getting made. https://screenrant.com/star-wars-rian-johnson-trilogy-canceled/ Thought we should split this out from the other threads.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy (now cancelled)

    I think Disney has decided that to listen to the fans. They put out the word that one trilogy would go ahead but didn’t name which it would be. Most if the vocal fan reaction was “yes! Rian is cancelled!” Obviously Disney would look at that reaction and decided on green lighting the more popular option. Star Wars has survived Caravan of Courage and it’s so vast that you can pick and chose what you want in your own personal cannon now. If the D and D trilogy is rubbish then we can just ignore it. It’s not like we have to watch it through gritted teeth.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy (now cancelled)

    It’s being reported everywhere that the next Star Wars movies are the ones by the Game of Thrones guys. Which makes the Rian cancelation a formality I guess.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy (now cancelled)

    He and the majority of fans care deeply about the legacy and tone of the franchise. That a few of us (myself included) enjoyed Rian’s take is neither here nor there, a reality vindicated by Disney dumping Rian’s trilogy.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy (now cancelled)

    He can switch from “whinging” (or thoughtful constructive criticism as others would call it) to celebrating. So there’s that.

    Edited topic title to reflect the news. Thanks again.

    Hereditary

    So this preview was shown to a bunch of unsuspecting schoolchildren. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/apr/27/peter-rabbit-hereditary-trailer-years-scariest-film-australia-perth?CMP=soc_567 Someone is going to be in a lot of trouble for this. On the other hand you couldn't ask for better viral marketing for a horror movie.
  11. Can’t link now due to being in transit but apparently the trilogy is most likely the one being developed by the Game of Thrones people.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    May 05/05 Captain Commando (PC/Arcade) You might be sensing a theme here. From fantasy to sci fi it's yet another colourful CPS-1 brawler. What more is there to say? The usual brawler design and the usual Capcom pixel art at it's finest. 05/05 The King of Dragons (PC/Arcade) Another Capcom scrolling beat-em up. It has the usual attractive CPS-1 look to it and suffers at the end a little with loads of enemies designed to steal your money. I do love the way they've managed to both make the dragons look enormous while also avoiding needing to draw one third to one half of their body!

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    Although there seems to be some sort of workaruond that allows the old Rare back catalogue and Megaman games to be resold on non Nintendo hardware now. Commercially at that too.

    Is crunch required?

    Given the confusion about whether or not Rockstar employees were forced to work overtime (paid or unpaid) and ethics of either persuading staff to work extra or forcing creatives to down tools I thought it might be wise to break out this thread for talk about this and previous instances (EA Spouse 2004, RDR Spouse 2010, Telltale 2018.) I was going to put together a megapost but this is moving so fast it's probably best to start talking about it here. Have at it!
  17. This was mentioned in another thread, Dan Dare was rather interesting on the 8 bit machines due to every version playing to it's strengths. Bazza does a comparison here He should totally have looked at the C64 instructions first! By default because of where I lived I had the C64 version and it was a great arcade adventure! However the Spectrum version looked like a pretty fast and smooth run and gun. And the Amstrad looks like a tidy platformer. Any others play this? Here's a long play of the excellent C64 version

    Playstation Plus | May 2019 - Overcooked & Edith Finch

    Have Edith Finch already but not even angry, I can't wait for more people to play and love (or hate) it. Looking forward to Overcooked.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Ah, it looked like a pretty decent run and gun. We C64 owners got a rather spiffy arcade adventure. Anyway, off topic.

    I'm not going to be able to see any promotional material now without thinking of Danny DeVito in an off brand Sanic suit.

    The Wandering Earth - Netflix Sci-Fi

    So I showed my partner the trailer. "Hang on this is on Netflix? We're not waiting for the weekend, we're watching it tonight!" Not on Netflix yet. She was gutted when she found out we have to wait for a week.

    Sonic The Hedgehog (Live Action) Nov 2019

    In the PAL territories watching this is going to feel 25% slower and the line "Every hero has mega drive" isn't going to scan as cleanly.

    Sonic The Hedgehog (Live Action) Nov 2019

    I can see why they cast Jim Carrey. 10 year olds from the 90's would have loved this. Kids these days though? Is Sonic still a thing for kids? What's the market for this movie? The trailer had all the cringe I thought I was going to feel watching the Detective Pokemon trailer. That unused cringe has transferred over to this fourfold.
