    Fall Guys

    And I think I'm done with this. No invert camera option and the game is all about luck.
  2. Upgrade People were raving about this when it first came out, now that it's on Netflix I decided to check it out. Wow. Just wow. Initially I was ready to give a 4/5 but the last half an hour really cemented it as a 5. I really hope this isn't the last we see of this world and character. 5/5
  3. I'm consistently surprised that Psychonauts 2 still hasn't come out. It feels like a game that's been in production for a decade.
  4. With a lot of major studios starting to now focus on streaming platforms in this post Covid world, I think old films is what the cinemas are going have to pivot too in order to survive. Now put Aliens on the big screen!
  5. I know there's the playerbase.....but it seems a little mad to me that they're releasing a "Live Service" game during the twilight of the PS4/Xbox One life. I'll wait for the PS5 version. Maybe by then it'll be good and have some costumes that don't look like they're from a f2p mobile game.
  6. I don't think people were that bothered about the "seedy" nature of some of the Yakuza 0 content because it was way worse in certain sequels. One of them (maybe 6?) had real life video of women in bikinis. In 0 it just felt....silly in compairson. Less offensively shit and more roll your eyes type of thing I guess. My advice to you is to enjoy the side content. The main story is great, but the real meat I found was enjoying the silly moments of Kiryu stumbling upon the weird characters of Kamarocho.
  7. It arrived yesterday. Here are my thoughts that I will just copy nd paste from a thread in the Film & TV folder: Yakuza: Like A Dragon My Yakuza fandom was not complete till I watched the Takeshi Miike movie. The most bizarre thing is that it was released in 2007, just two years after the first Yakuza game came out. I guess Sega really were banking on this being their GTA. If you haven't played the game then good luck following the story. Or what there is of it. I now realise how Takeshi Miike has a filmography of over 200 films. This feels like it was made over a weekend. Set in one night in Kamarocho, it starts off with Kiryu walking around the city fresh out of prison with Haruka following. That's how it starts! Not the crime that he took the fall for, or his relationship with Nishki, it starts with what I think is partway through the story of the game. Nishki himself not turning up till the last fifteen minutes the film, that's your main antagonist who has less screentime than some comedy duo who are robbing a bank in "hilarious" fashion. It's clear Miike took the wrong things from the Yakuza game, instead of the humour being from the witty and clever writing, coupled with Kiryu's dry reactions, its all a bit slapstick. Especially from Majima who is just a cartoon. I didn't care for it. Even though I loled when the final fight ends with Kuryu drinking a Staminan X and getting Heat. 1/5 - 2/5 if you like the games ------------------------------------------------------- They really did Nishki dirty in this film. Other than some slight mentions that him and Kiryu were "tight", it doesn't delve into their history at all. In fact, I don't remember him having any speaking lines!

  9. And also except Dark City. The theatrical version had an opening narration that completely spoiled the big twist midway through. Like the studio didn't trust people to follow what is quite a simple film to understand. Shame that the director Alex Proyas went a bit.....odd in later years. I would've loved to see the Directors Cut of Event Horizon which was apparently so gory that people fainted in the test screenings. Though sadly a lot of that footage has been lost.
  10. Always Be Closing has been confirmed as the next "Evolved" event coming on 11th August. I didn't have any internet during the modes initial run so excited to give it a go now. It's looking like I might even max out this seasons battle pass (the first one I've manged since 2 I think). Currently it's sitting at 90ish. I have a bunch of those quests lined up too. I'll probably mop them all up before the season ends, but it's more for completions sake than anything else. The missions really are quite poor.
  11. The only one I bought this generation was for Yakuza 6. Mainly because it actually came with some useful stuff that I have actually been using quite regularly. Coasters and whiskey glasses with a dragon symbol on them! There was also a neat art book that's currently on my desk.
  12. Just came on here to post the same really. It does make me chuckle how one of the trademarks of the COD series (do they still do it?) is when you die they have a meaningful quote from a dead President or some other famous person in history, as if they're making something that has a meaningul thing to say and not just SHOOT PEOPLE: THE VIDEOGAME. It's dated from a gameplay perspective too. Playing it last night and everytime you're shot your curser bounces around moreso than any other shooter I've played, not to mention every mission so far has been variations on "Follow Your Friend". It's weird because I actually really liked WW2, so not sure why this one has failed to grab me the same way it did when it first came out.
  13. Two films from this weekend. Two completely different, both in terms of content and quality. Slender Man I usually have a high tolerance for shite teen horror, but this is on another level. I don't think I've watched a film since Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem that is so poorly lit it becomes unwatchable. Annoying teen characters wandering around a forest in the pitch black, then all of a sudden there's a thin faceless man in the background. Repeat for an hour and a half. The ending is also the worst I've seen in quite a while. 0/5 Ip Man 4: The Finale This is more like it. The fourth and final film in Donnie Yens excellent Ip Man series. What started off as a serious martial arts epic escalated as the series progresses into amazing nonsense, with the second film basically being Rocky IV. The fourth film follows Ip Man going to San Francisco to look for a school for his son, while there he gets back in touch with former student Bruce Lee and helps fight against a bunch of racist American army people led by the every brilliant Scott Adkins. Also it has the best theme. FUCK YEAH. 5/5
  14. And I think that hits the nail on the head on why I didn't like it. The game was a excellently written look into the racism of America, but I wish it was told from the perspective of other characters. Maybe because I have little patience when it comes other peoples children, Daniel just being an annoying little prick for most of it, not doing what I tell him just made me want to smash my face into the wall. Bloody kids.
  15. Life is Strange Season 2 was atrocious. It pulled back some good will during the final episode but leading up to that I was making all the worst decisions because all the characters were annoying as fuck.
