    Red Dead Redemption 2

    This genuinely scared the absolute shit out of me the other night. Has anyone else found the (discovery spoiler): Yet? I stumbled across it entirely by accident and the odds for it occurring are absolutely minuscule. Can’t believe I didn’t think to record it.

    The Kid Who Would Be King from Joe Cornish

    Hang on a minute, what exactly are those power slides in Mario Kart supposed to be if not handbrake turns?

    If you’re anything like me, and most of the other people I know who own one, you’ll buy it intended to use it on your 1080p screen and end up buckling and buying a 4k one within two months. That’s not to say there wasn’t a noticeable improvement on a HD screen, there absolutely was, but the visual leap when going full 4k/HDR was phenomenal. 4k in particular makes a much bigger difference for games than it does for film.

    Holmes and Watson - Ferrell and Reilly

    I actually worked on this. I'm glad they've clearly kept the swearing, because most of my favourite jokes were in hard-R rating territory.
  5. Have they basically rotoscoped it? Perhaps because the edges of such old film stock are so dull it looks less obvious than with modern footage.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    That’s because of Bradford Young, dark cinematography is kinda his ‘thing’. I think it’s beautifully shot but great but agree that the style is quite incongruous with the tone.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Demo disc classic Overboard perhaps? Lifeforce TENKA for a taste of baffling pre-twin stick FPS controls. That said I was always fond of Alien Trilogy, but I guess that and Resurrection are ruled out for licensing reasons.
  8. Diamonds does open with a montage of Bond hunting Blofeld as revenge for her murder though.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Yeah, Vader. It was 100% a reshoot. Just think, at one point there was a cut of Rogue One where they’d brought back Vader for a single scene of him getting out the bath to have a meeting. I’d have been fucking livid.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    I’m 100% with @linkster on Rogue One, it’s a shallow load of nothing, and that robot who everyone seem to love doesn’t even have any good gags. Ben was great, but they wasted Mads. The rest of the cast are awful. The best scene in the film is a last minute insert that has nothing to do with the plot.

    Metro Redux Ps4 Xbone

    Never did finish the second one of these, it’s been sat on my Xbox hard drive for years waiting for me to return. I thought they were both excellent, as a huge fan of the original STALKER who never had good enough PC for either of the sequels, the Metro series successfully scratched that itch for me on console. I just wish the monster designs were more effective, STALKER was legitimately terrifying in places whereas the Metro games have never really gone beyond ‘tense’.

    Oh wow, I genuinely almost bought the premium pass for £40 on Sunday. Looks amazing with the One X patch, too.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    I don't know what it is about Tomb Raider but the threads for all three have been absolute cluster-fucks. Also for years after losing the elites in Halo the prevailing notion around these parts was that you should never let your game design be hemmed-in by a plot nobody cares about, but for this particular series people just can't let it go.
  14. For what it’s worth I heard the exact same thing from a writer I know weeks ago, long before it was in the papers. He framed it as Craig hating the character of Bond and wanting to see him killed off, though. If they genuinely are considering Idris Elba (not convinced, personally) then I could see them doing it.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    I actually thought the first game had a solid story but with weak characterisation, whereas the second one was poor on both counts. I still completed them both twice, and that is an absolute rarity for me. If the quality of the world, setpieces and puzzles is of a similar standard to the previous titles then I personally don’t think it matters that much. If the third act twist ends up being yet another macguffin that has kept an army of Inca warriors alive for the past thousand years I’m going to die laughing.
