    From Software Déraciné (PSVR)

    Makes me think about how you could use VR to make a more observation-based detective game, like the scanning bit in Metroid Other M but not crap or the detective bits in Batman but not so handholding as to be pointless.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    Dinosaur veterinary college is not very hands on and it is mostly turkeys and geese.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    The whitelists vary by region and the PAL version is especially bad. Konami announced that the PSP version of Shattered Memories was being switched on for Vita here and it simply didn’t happen; closest anyone has got to an answer why is “ask Sony”. The onboard store reflects the actual whitelist of course.

    Which console should be released as a 'mini' next?

    It's interesting that they've taken the step of explicitly saying they'r not launching an N64 Mini. They're advertising the SNES Classic a lot online as a Christmas gift, so I wonder if they're making the statement to avoid getting Osborned by rumours.

    Alien: Covenant - 2017 - Ridley Scott

    It looks amazing in a travelogue sort of way. I think the trailer had a lot to answer for. It really did a great job of selling the movie as all-out sci-fi body horror which very obviously wasn't what Scott had made. It's possible that it was meant to be more horror-oriented and Scott found the current Indiana Jones in the 25th Century version in rewrites/reshoots/editing but I find that hard to believe.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    Last night we managed to almost convince someone that the big reveal was going to be which started out as someone's absurd joke early on but is actually heavily foreshadowed by the movie if you pay attention. Was this actually the case in an earlier draft, or was the movie just written in a sloppy way where this stupid idea fits? We may never know.

    A bargain-priced no-Blu-ray drive version may be on the way: https://www.thurrott.com/xbox/192184/microsofts-building-a-disc-less-xbox-one-for-release-in-2019 At $199 I’d buy that just to replace my 360.

    I think the two previous years Shopto has had a console-and-game deal for £200 or less and deep discounts on accessories bought at the same time.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I had an enjoyable hour failing to figure out how I was supposed to start the only remaining story mission, bumping in to random stuff. Honestly, the fact that the game simply broke at the same time increased my enjoyment. (The following happened consecutively.)

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    It was on and off standby all the time, so that wasn’t an issue. Agree that this isn’t exactly a meticulously assembled masterpiece of exactly matched components.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    This is my “guy who built a computer exactly twice” perspective but I think running a machine as hot as it can go without crashing or warping any plastic bits is a perfectly good way of keeping the noise down. My last desktop didn’t even have a CPU fan on the cooler; you could’ve toasted marshmallows next to the motherboard but it was still reliable.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    Some off-camera Mr Bean nonsense where he keeps getting mistaken for a member of various evil teams. I’m telling you all, this is a multi-million dollar Hollywood movie with the plot of a 1960s British farce, it’s genius.
