  1. Yeah, I was more wondering why it had been latched onto in such a big and pervasive way. I don’t get why it’s more appealing than any other multiplayer mode, but loads of games seem to be shoe-horning it in and using it as a big selling point.
  2. Why has battle royale become such a buzzword? Isn’t it just another multiplayer mode, basically elimination on a big scale? It seems weird to me that it’s getting shoved into every genre possible. I’m getting old.

    The Man Utd Thread

    I got a notification on my iPhone earlier from the BBC Sport app saying that tomorrow night’s game has been postponed, but when I clicked through to read about, there was no article. It’s just the intern trying to be funny, isn’t it?

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Sorry! It just fires me up with an irrational rage! No idea why.
  6. It’s not about the casting though, it’s about the tone. The original feels like a real world, all gritty and lived-in, with cynical characters and plenty of black humour. Struggling to make ends meet and being chancers to get what they wanted. The remake/sequel/whatever it is was so far off the mark in this respect. It felt like a Saturday morning cartoon, with bright, garish colours, caricatures rather than characters and no sense of threat because it was all so frothy. Like I said, they can cast whoever they like, but they have to get the feel of the world right. That’s the main hurdle in my eyes.

    If only we could bring him in!
  8. I don’t think making one shit film in completely the wrong tone equates to impossible to please. They just made a mess of the last one. A new one that has the feel of the original - a more grounded film, but with excellent comedy performances, rather than an extended ad-libbed Saturday Night Live sketch - would go down a treat. Whether that has women, kids or whatever fronting it, it doesn’t matter. To me at least, anyway.

    Alita: Battle Angel

    I don’t get it. How does swapping around the words in the title allow them to name any sequels easier?

    Reading your condescending responses to everything has always been boring.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    You’re so difficult to discuss things with. Can’t you honestly see that those points I raised are detrimental to the game for a lot of people and you think that it’s because we’re all shit gamers who can’t be arsed, or are willing, to learn? I liked RDR2, but it would have been even better if they’d pushed those parts of the game as much as they did with the visuals. Game controls and menus have moved on and improved massively since the original RDR, but Rockstar chose to go backwards rather than forwards in those areas. And I haven’t seen anyone asking for a sandbox style structure to the progression, just less enforced, restrictive areas while you’re on a story mission. But none of this is relevant to Crackdown 3 and we’re going way off track again, so I’ll leave it there.

    Nah. It could have still been a story driven game but with better controls, menu system and less funnelled linear missions. I think the majority of criticisms aren’t because people want it to be a different kind of game, more that it feels really regressive in a lot of areas. But yeah, wrong thread for it really.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy

    As long as they get someone good to do the next main trilogy (why do they have to be trilogies?) and this is a side project, then it’s cool.
