  1. It looks extremely generic. But those actors in the title are actors I like seeing, so it could still be fun if the action and story end up better than they seem in the trailer. It's directed by Martin Campbell. Hopefully it's closer to his Bonds than to Green Lantern - and as long as it reaches a level you could call "competent", it should achieve that.
  2. No I haven't. I'm sure it's a good film but no one's ever made much of a case for why I should be interested in watching it ASAP, other than to see the famous "Say hello to my little friend!" bit in context and see where GTA Vice City nicked everything from. I mainly associate the film with the GameFAQs movies message board circa 2004, when it first came out on DVD in America and a load of people went "The most badass movie EVER is finally out on DVD! It has a bonus feature where hip hop musicians talk about how influential the movie was to them! It'll go great with the awesome pos
  3. Even there the rule holds: he was one of the best things in SPECTRE, so the film was better with him than it would have been without him!
  4. The janky, ugly (and pretty racist) Xbox 360 game Comic Jumper had a special attack which consisted of a video clip of a developer's bearded face filling the screen, looking at the camera, and then headbutting the screen to damage all the enemies. It was funny the first time, but when every use of the attack plays an unskippable 20 second long clip, it puts you off ever using it. I can't find any clips of it on YouTube and I'm not going to go looking all through a longplay video to try and find one!
  5. I still haven't seen the first one yet.
  6. I watched a playthrough of that new Wonderful Dizzy game recently. It has a couple of self-referential jokes about being a computer game right at the start, though they're not directed at the player so I don't think they quite count as fourth wall breaks:
  7. The Stanley Parable. All of it.
  8. Wanted (2008) - 2/5 So very post-Matrix, so very orange and blue. I last saw this 2009 (it was my first ever LoveFilm DVD rental!), and I remember that I enjoyed its daft premise (the LOOM!) and ridiculous action (the RATS!). This rewatch was prompted because the Cinematic Universe podcast did an episode on the film adaptations of Mark Millar. But this time - like them - I found myself much less impressed by its action, and much less forgiving of its tone and edgelord attitude. Now, the movie comes across as a trial run for Kingsman: there are several broad plot si
  9. I once played a 2D platfomer where you controlled a cartoon animal character. I can't remember what it was called though.
  10. Does anyone remember the similar compilation video that was made around 2012 for 2D platform games? It was called "Go Right" and consisted of numerous platformers' sprite animations for running to the right, zoomed in to fill most of the screen height, and smoothly edited together into a sequence. Here are a couple of pages about it from the time: https://www.vice.com/en/article/4x484g/igo-righti-celebrates-the-joy-of-platform-based-games https://www.hypable.com/go-right-pays-tribute-to-the-platformer/ Unfortunately, the original YouTube upload

    The stupid ones are still the best: Dark Souls memes! Obscenely difficult Dark Souls challenge runs! Sonic 1: Omochao Edition is one that's all about intentionally annoying the player, so the joke gets old very quickly. But it's quite fun for the first seconds after you see what it's doing:
  12. Here is a compilation of streamers who've never played Halo playing through 343 Guilty Spark for the first time. Yeah, they're playing up their Annoying Terrified Streamer Reactions for the camera (especially once the Flood swarm finally attacks), and I'm not sure I completely believe they were all that unaware of the Flood's existence in advance. But it shows that the build-up to the Flood reveal still works pretty well for first-time players: From Halo 2 onwards they added a feature where if the game detects you're in a loop of dying within a few
  13. They're not really flooded, it's just the lighting making it look that way.
