  1. £20 for me after cashing in some MS reward points.
  2. Was hoping they’d have a pre-order Judgment punch card.
  3. I always like at the end of a segment how the hard man voice overs try their best to make even the most paltry sentences sound like they've just got sent to the cubes in Mega City One. HE'S LAUGHING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF HIS FACE NOW WITH A £25 FINE!!!
  4. I'd never heard of Aragami before the sequel taking up residence in the coming soon section for weeks. Bloody hell you weren't kidding Darren! The game I played this afternoon looked like it dropped through a time portal from about two generations ago compared to that. Why the hell would they do that.
  5. What did you think about it was complete shit, Goat Simulator is a lolrandom monkey cheese waste of time and does at least resemble your criticism. But Goose Game? Fair enough not liking it but callng it a cynical cash-in and only having a daft selling point doesn’t describe that game whatsoever. It was clearly made with craft and a lot of love from the devs even if you didn’t enjoy it.
  6. Untitled Goose Game is far from ‘complete shit’.
  7. Bloody hell, I think Aragami 2 must have had a budget you wouldn't get change from a Happy Meal. It feels like someone found an old forgotten Saturn game in creepy abandoned Woolworts and decided to remaster it.
  8. Even if you have issues with the ethics of the arcade model, I'd argue there's still a gulf of difference (even taking into account inflation) between the amount kids tended to spend in them and this: Unfortunately even Nintendo are in on the virtual currency racket. We've gone off topic a bit and I've contributed to that. There's two separate things being discussed here: 1. Policing exposing your kids content that you believe is ethically/morally wrong. I don't think anyone has a problem with this. 2. Parents who get pissed off because they don't think their children are enjoying the right things in the right way at the right difficulty (usually why don't you like exactly what I did at your age). The latter was the original topic of the thread.
  9. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-08-20-roblox-exploiting-young-game-developers-new-investigation-reports It sounds pretty shady and exploitative.
  10. Shades of Bean Dad about the guy. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-55515243
  11. That's a completely different issue to what's being discussed here though. If a parent doesn't want their children consuming something because they have serious ethical concerns over the company responsible or the content, I have no problem with that. But so far this has been more about the modern thing of men going STOP HAVING FUN WRONG and then trying to force-feed their kid He-Man* or something from their own youth so they're enjoying the 'right' thing in the 'right' way. * Chose that as an example because of the reaction I saw recently in He-Man thread in Film & TV about the release of a new cartoon specifically aimed at children, despite Netflix releasing a faithful nostalgia-bait version specifically for middle-aged men as well. See also anytime there's a new version of an old property for kids, the online wailing about Thundercats was something to behold.
  12. Or just let kids enjoy what they enjoy instead of trying to force feed them your own youth with regimented video games and making them watch the Star Wars films is some convoluted order. Lord knows most of our parents are from a generations that have enough issues, but at least they weren’t making us consume Just William, or whatever media they liked as kids, like it was a religious doctrine.

    I can't wait to play a Marvel game as my favourite character Ultra Generic Looking Fantasy Female Videogame Character.
  14. Anyone tried it yet. How noticeable is the latency?
  15. Cypher had the right idea. I'd absolutely betray the resistance at the first available opportunity instead of living in a cave with a bunch of smelly rave hippies.
  16. So after a week of ownership, these are my impressions. I held off on VR because of the sheer faff it looked, having a headset that you switch on wherever you are and go is really all I,d be interested PSVR2 may be wonderful but if I'm tethered by a wire to a device in a single location it'll be dead in the water for me, not least because the room my PS5 is in really isn't suitable for VR. Tried Airlink tonight, and while it was a bit pixelly sometimes when you moved you head I was amazed how well it worked when my PC and router were in another floor. As for native games I've tried: Super Hot VR: First game I bought, after playing the demo, because I wanted to be Neo. To be honest while sometimes it can feel insanely cool overall it was a disappointment. The checkpointing abysmal, having to constantly replay 3 stages just to keep getting back to the tricky bit you're struggling with on the 4th can do one. Beat Saber: Not much I can add to what,s already been written adinfinitum about this one, it's great. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners: Although it looks like a a PS3 game this one really wowed me in terms of giving you the kind of VR experience you want when you watched it in sci-if films, making you feel transported to another world. It's ultra immersive, all the little touched like grabbing stuff from various parts of your body; grabbing a zombie by the jaw, yanking their head down and ramming a screwdriver into it and then the impression of having to waggle it back out; I adore the way you put the barrel back in a revolver with a little flick. It also showed me how shit I'd really be in the apocalypse as all vestiges of coordination vanish and I forget how to even hold a two handed weapon the second I'm under pressure.
  17. Scary? Nah, it’s pure schlock and makes no bones about it from the get go. The opening sequence is even a bit Raimi-esque.
  18. Now entering spoiler town.
  19. There's already some discussion about this film in the horror thread, but it really deserves its on thread. I watched it tonight, knowing nothing about it beyond it seems to be getting buzz online and it's a wild ride. I appreciated just how committed it was to it's own lunacy towards the end with no winking at the audience or drenching everything in 10 layers of irony like so many modern films do. There'll inevitably be spoilers in this thread and I think this a film that really benefits from going in quite cold. So if you haven't seen it yet but need something more before deciding to view it or not I'd recommend just reading the official synopsis below. Now leave the thread and come back when you've watched it.
  20. We really need a Malignant thread, it’s wild. I knew nothing about it going in and I'm glad I didn't. Loved the OTT score as well.
