  1. I'm not into music but I do like watching The Hit List with my girlfriend. Unlike most other quizzes the questions come thick and fast without all the blather in between.
  2. In Death: Unchained is bloody brilliant. (Small caveat: it's a roguelike so if you're not into them then this won't be for you.) It's a bit different to what I was expecting. I imagined it would be more like an on-rails gallery shooter with you standing on the spot with enemies becoming more difficult as you unlocked extra scenes, but there's a real sense of exploration in this that I love. Movement is implemented cleverly with you shooting a 'locomotion' arrow and it propels you around the environment seemlessly; it's also necessary to retreat or avoid a barrage of ene
  3. Picked up In Death: Unchained in the sale. Been wanting this for a while and it's one of the most highly rated games in the Oculus store. Will post some impressions soon.
  4. Stories Untold There's good and bad in this. I think the presentation, plotting and atmosphere are terrific but I was left cold by the text adventure stories which bookend the experience and offer no aha eureka moments. Chapters 2 and 3 are much better, with some clever puzzles, sound design and creepy moments. 6/10
  5. Celebrity shows are definitely easier. I love the fact Jedward went on Pointless and got through to the final. Not because they were good; they just got very, very lucky. They managed to answer all the questions without getting any wrong and scoring 100. In the final it became apparent they didn't understand the concept of the show at all and were just trying to give the most obvious answer to everything rather than the best, most obscure one. Anyway, it tickled me. And celebs always get an easy ride.
  6. The Just Cause games seem to be made purely for PS Plus subscribers.
  7. Wow, that is commitment. I finished Demon's Souls about four years ago and am not yet ready to try again. Soon, though. Soon.
  8. Ah yes, I see it is going to wind up in the early 2000s. Season 4 has been a surprise hit for me. So delicious and sumptuous. I didn't think it would be my cup of tea. I'm looking forward to watching what came before.
  9. With two more series to come I'm looking forward to what they'll do with William, Kate, Harry and Meghan. Perhaps Meghan will play herself?
  10. Nice review, apart from him saying 'Volhollow' everytime.
  11. It sounds like you're new to the Souls experience. Apologies if this is incorrect. Don't worry, I am generally terrible at these types of games but have beaten this (on PS3) plus Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Often it is a case of dogged persistence plus farming souls and levelling up that will get you through. If you're stuck on a section or boss then there's no shame in spending time just gathering souls to increase all your stats. The good part of this game is that there are quite a few different areas to explore and loads of harvesting sites. You died. Good
  12. Can't wait to see this. There are some excellent moments in 3 but, yes, it just didn't have the singular vision and assured execution of 1 and 2.
  13. The first two episodes of We Are the Champions are terrific. Reminds me of, and is a good companion to, the excellent mini series of sport documentaries, Losers.
  14. I used to watch this back in the day, probably 10 years ago now. The emphasis used to be on starving the celebs and putting a loose cannon in so it raised tensions but they've actively gone away from this format recently (because we have to be kind), so zero drama. But from seeing bits in the press this series looks particularly leaden, dull and nicey-nicey. If something kicks off I might give it a try but I highly doubt it will.
