    Bad games transformed by patches and remasters

    Forza 5 was pretty bare bones when it launched. They added a lot more cars and tracks overtime to fill it out. Not so much a transformation though. GTA Online was a pretty transformative patch when it came out. Certainly in terms of $$s made for R*.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    It seems it is indeed a load horse crap

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Hmmmm, not sure how much salt you need to take with this. Reports that Liberty are looking to sell part or even all of F1 after just 3 years. I'm struggling with this one. Maybe bringing in new Partners, I can see that making sense I guess. https://johnwallstreet.com/formula-one-for-sale/ EDIT: This is apparently total bull.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Hmmm, not sure how I feel about that one. S31 have always been portrayed as antagonists. So unless this plays out like The Sopranos, I'm not sure how they would pull this off without doing away with the notion of them being a big bag of space dicks. The Cerberus of the Federation. Could be fun though.

    Best machine for emulators?

    I was researching this very subject recently and decided I would purchase the Nvidia Shield TV 2018. It seems pretty awesome and apparently does a great job on Saturn Games too.

    Movies that need a remake

    Flight Of The Navigator. It has so many good sci-fi concepts. Starts off with a 'kid out of time' setup that's the reversal of Back To The Future (i.e. kid from the past wakes up to find himself in the present). Then you have a mysterious crashed alien spaceship, which the government manages to keep hush hush but can't figure out anything about it (or even get inside it). Eventually the scientists realise the boy and the spaceship are somehow connected. Only at (or even beyond) the halfway point do we get introduced to the aliens. At this point the film descends into a family comedy with Pee-Wee Herman and the constantly confused looking kid doing a painful double act. You could totally remake that with a bit more grit and less Pee-Wee Herman.
  7. Is there a website somewhere that tells you when games are coming off gamepass? I was happily playing my way through Injustice Gods Among on Monday and sat down to finish it last night only to be told I didn't own it and couldn't play it. Took me a minute to realise it had been taken off. I know there is somewhere on gamepass that says leaving soon but I just wondered if there was a more easy way to check and know a bit more long term. That way, it will stop me doing the old "Oooh, I'll play that soon when I get some time". Like the time Mr. T was at the mall. I kept saying, I'll go a little later. Then when I got there, they told me he had already left ;(
  8. Earth 2 & Space Above and Beyond. Maybe minus the last episode for both of them.

    What game is the most FUN?

    Battle mode on the original Mario Kart.

    The Mandalorian - live action Star Wars TV show

    Does anyone suspect this is actually a Bobba Fett tv series? I know they've said it's not and it's a different character but that might just be a ruse. Of course that would mean he needed to have survived the Sarlacc pit. Edit: Oh apparently he did.

    YAY! Really like Karun. With him & JB joining, I wonder if some of the others might be leaving (or swapping to the other side). I hope not.
  12. There is / was a screening of Infiniti War today with the Russo Brothers in attendance for a Q&A. So the internet put 2 and 2 together and got Lou Gehrig's disease. There is also an Avengers 4 prelude comic that comes out next week (Dec 5th).

    I think the angle of the car against the barrier is probably the biggest differentiator in those 2 situations rather than the Halo.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Hmmmmm, I think that's a huge gamble. Hope they have a solid reserve driver. Not only has Kubica not raced in a very long time. He's also going to be the second oldest driver on the grid after Raikonen. Well, time will tell. He's a great talent.
