  1. Don't knock it; it's all that's been keeping the Valve thread going for the past five years.

    Halo Infinite

    For all those thinking back to that Halo 2 E3 demo, DF Retro did a video on it a few days ago. To be honest, there's not a lot in it that didn't make it into later Halo games at some point. So the only reason to recreate it now would be pure nostalgia.
  3. YouTuber Dave Bulmer has started playing this, with help from his wife Abby (who has completed the PC version before). Unfortunately he chose fire bombs at the start of the game, and it's taking him a while to get the hang of the controls: But he did somehow manage to beat the Asylum Demon first try, despite wielding his sword two-handed and while using up all his stamina rolling. At one point in their stream, they turn it into a game of Knightmare: humming the theme and doing the "you're in a room with a big skeleton... side step to your left!" thing. Now I kind of want someone to do a full playthrough as if it was Knightmare. Or at least make a montage video dubbing on the theme music!

    Digitiser is back

    Insincere Dave summarises the MS E3 conference: https://www.digitiser2000.com/main-page/microsoft-at-e3-2018-with-comments-by-insincere-dave#
  5. Soon after the film's release, I saw comments online (though I'm not sure whether they were from VFX artists with genuine insider knowledge, or just fans speculating) that when it came to devoting time and money to special effects shots, Black Panther very much played second fiddle to Avengers: Infinity War. e.g. the latter was assigned the more experienced artists, and work on effects shots began much earlier in the process. In the case of Henry Cavill's Superman digital moustache removal (also mentioned in that article), apparently the extremely tight timescale was the main thing that spoiled it. I don't blame the artists for that, just the fact that they had to do it at such short notice. This Telegraph page has a summary of a Reddit AMA from an anonymous special effects artist (comments since deleted), saying as much: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/2017/11/27/justice-league-effects-artist-finally-explains-supermans-mustache/

    E3 2018: Xbox E3 Briefing

    I liked it when this happened: MS: "Great news! We've bought Ninja Theory!" Everyone: "Hooray!" (20 minutes later) MS: "Great news! The next Devil May Cry is going back to Capcom, so we can all completely ignore what Ninja Theory did with the last one!" Everyone: "Hooray!" Also @Robo_1 - I can't reply to your locked E3 shows thread, but the GameSpot YouTube video of the MS presentation has a brief skip: at about 1:27:50 it jumps from the end of the Gears of War Funko trailer, to midway through the other game's cutscene, completely skipping the RTS game trailer. You might want to add a note about that in your post, or embed a different copy of the video. And speaking of the Funko GOW game:

    Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    There are casual viewers. There are fans. There are obsessive fans. And then there are FANS. https://www.polygon.com/2018/6/7/17439516/avengers-infinity-war-marathon-nemraps-marvel-cinematic-universe Almost equally impressive is the fact that he's wearing a different Marvel t-shirt for almost every viewing.

  9. Film number 3 in DreamWorks' best series! (Well, Kung Fu Panda is okay, I suppose.)
