  1. What was with the two battles in this series where defending troops were positioned outside the castle walls in the killing ground. *The killing ground*. Am I missing something or were we just supposed to overlook it for the spectacle?

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    PSplus for June.
  3. More implied drama there than the last three episodes.
  4. That was rather good but still felt rushed. I've kinda just got used to it I suppose. But come on, THE EDMURE TULLY SPEECH was pure class. Highlight of the entire series.

    On Hollow Knight. Don't expect this Metroidvania to be like Super Metroid. It's actually more like a 2D Dark Souls. It can be obtuse, there's a lot of backtracking and the bosses can be very hard. It's also sublime. But yeah, it may not click for 8 hours..!

    I dunno. I like Paul Foot but he was on Would I Lie to You? and was very weak. I wonder if his humour doesn't translate to TV well... Although tasks would maybe be a better fit. I'd prefer him over Iain Love Island any day. Someone who just got massively lucky.

  8. I tend not to get too hot and bothered by these things. GoT was great for a long time so I just appreciate where it used to be. Interesting someone mentioned Tywin's skinning scene; this too represented GoT at it's best.

    If you're annoyed by Martin taking his time over the next book save a thought for fans of Patrick Rothfuss. Bloody success makes people lazy.

    Are cutscenes necessary?

    I was going to try express why the 'it's just pressing buttons' without cutscenes/narrative is so reductive and wrong but you've done it beautifully. I do think there can be a place for cutscenes in certain games but if they were banned games across the board would improve. Let's face it cutscenes are a crutch for most flabby, bigger budget developers. Teams would have to think about the expression of narrative in more creative ways. Inside is a good example.

    Are cutscenes necessary?

    The short answer is no but the longer answer is that ALL big developers/studios find making cutscenes a lot easier than making games. They also aspire to be film directors. It's why I love a lot of indie games where they just focus on making a game fun.
  13. I really like my PSVR but will only be upgrading to an untethered unit. It'll be interesting to see if Sony's next iteration will be cableless. Quest is very, very tempting but I think I'll wait to see what it's like once the dust settles.

    The Golf Club 2

    Wow. I was searching around for courses last night and just on the off chance put in one of the Glasgow municipal courses in, Linn Park. It was there! Pretty accurate it is too, although the greens are a little flat. Still enjoying this though I still really don't feel like there's enough motivation in the career mode. All that changes is the look of your club house. Unless I'm missing something obvious.
