    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    Getting pretty bored of the “shoot multiple pod-things to open doors” repetition. Resorted to faqs a couple of times through sheer tedium. Likewise the, hopefully, always optional bell ringing. Compared to the massively varied ways of doing these things in something like the Batman games it’s the only bit of the game which seems rushed.

    HBO's Westworld. Yee-Haww Co/w,bo.Y@@@ [FATAL ERROR]

    The drop in True Detective came before the end of Season 1.
  3. As well as videogames I have far too many Amiibos, bobble heads, comics and board games. I think child-man is fair as far as I'm concerned.
  4. While not all remakes are worth it, after playing GTA5 and SOTC I can't imagine ever wanting to return to the PS3 and PS2 versions. This would apply to all great games improved on any console. I wouldn't buy the same game again, but a vastly improved one? Sure.

    The Kickstarter Group Thread

    Pledge manager is out for Nemesis now. All those extras..... Thinking of Sundropping the lot and getting the heroes fully painted. https://nemesis.gamefound.com/en £100 for 12 painted miniatures does pretty much double the price though. Not sure I’ve got the bug that bad...
  6. The best BC was on the initial release PS3 where they did it in hardware, which they pulled for being too expensive. Fully BC with some upscaling. Lovely. Having said that, the PS4s ‘solution’ to just get developers to release enhanced versions of their old games is a million times better in the long run. GTA5s one of my most played games this gen, and it’s ostensibly a last-gen title.

    Nintendo Switch

    Would Galaxy work on the Switch? Or would you be unable to do the pointer stuff? I'd swap a bollock for HD Galaxy.

    ONRUSH - A New Breed of Arcade Action

    I presume this will have a bunch of modes that aren't in the beta, so anyone complaining about a lack of (insert lack here) may well have their fears laid to rest with the full release.

    ONRUSH - A New Breed of Arcade Action

    Who the fuck decided arcade racing was dead? I guess I missed a memo as I was too busy playing Ridge Racer, NFS: Hot Pursuit, Wipeout, Burnout and Mario Kart.

    The official rllmuk MCU ranking

    Time to add the new ones and rejiggle the ones that have stayed with me: 1. Infinity War - I think this might just be the best one...It takes all the humour of the best of them, makes the massive set-pieces even more epic and impressive, and then adds some pathos. The new ESB of the MCU. 2. GOTG Vol. 2 - More heart than the first one and even more consistently amazing, mostly because of the ending. The ESB of the MCU. 3. GOTG - I never thought I'd see a better Marvel movie than Avengers, then this came out. 4. Avengers Assemble - Stunning. 5. Thor: Ragnarok - So light hearted and whimsical I'm not sure this will stay here. But also effortlessly fun and funny. Don't remember too much else apart from I really enjoyed it. 6. Civil War - Washed out visuals again but I kind of love the espionage angle of the Cap movies 7. Iron Man 3 - Really fun I thought. Haters gonna hate. 8. Age of Ultron - Enjoyed this far more on the second viewing. I can imagine this slipping up the ranking with time. As I predicted, this has gone up in my estimations with time. 9. Ant Man - Very fun. More actually trippy than Dr Strange. 10. Black Panther - Don't believe the hype, but has some decent bits and a very good baddie performance. 11. Thor: Dark World - I like the elf spaceships. 12. Iron Man - Responsible for starting the whole thing off, resurrecting Robert Downey jr and setting up the MCU. 13. The First Avenger - Very decent. Remade as Wonder Woman. 14. Winter Soldier - Good but suffers badly from washed out Marvel movie syndrome. 15. Spiderman homecoming - I just couldn't get a handle on this. Considering it was set in New York it had no sense of place. Birdman saves it. 16. Dr Strange - A marketing executives idea of psychedelia. Fun on the whole but Strange has completely the wrong personality. 17. Thor - Pretty good but looks like it was made for TV. 18. Iron Man 2 - Stuff happens. Mickey Rourke has whips. 19. The Hulk - Not really part of the modern MCU IMO, but hey. Gonna add the TV shows too: 1. Legion - The best Marvel TV show and one of the best TV shows full stop. Everything Dr Strange should have been. (Outside the MCU though I presume, and all the better for it). 2. Jessica Jones - Gritty, foul mouthed, kick-arse anti-hero which avoids the kitsch and tacky pitfalls the other lesser shows fall for. 3. Luke Cage - With one caveat. It has the worst showdown season finale costume decision since 70's Wonder Woman. Luke himself is pretty dry also but a great supporting cast. 4. Daredevil - This gets above Punisher due to the strength of all the characters, except Daredevil. Kingpin elevates it to greatness in Season one, and likewise Punisher in Season Two. Foggy and Karen also put in a good show, Elektra for all her wooden acting is pretty good too. Worst ninjas in history though, and like I said, Daredevil himself is the worst thing in it. 5. Punisher - Brutal. Punisher is by far a better character than Daredevil but the supporting cast are unmemorable and the show can't maintain its thrills for an entire season as a result. Enjoyable for the most part. 6. Iron Fist - All over the place but I still enjoyed it. Tonally shifts from whimsical kids TV to brutal murder at the drop of a hat. The worst fight choreography since The Fall Guy. 7. Agents of Shield - Never really got into this. Should I? Reminded me of an 80's TV show for kids. Not seen any others...
  12. Me too. It took years for the PS4 to come close to matching PS3 in terms of being a functional media hub and having games with deep gameplay. In fact the PS3 still plays a few video files better than the PS4 and has become part of the furniture.
  13. BC seems pretty redundant since a high proportion of games these days are better versions of games released not that long ago. If they support the PS4 the way they’ve supported the PS3, years after its replacement was released, it doesn’t bother me at all anymore. In fact the PS3 is the only console I’ve ever kept hold of after we switched up a gen. As for this CEO going on about the PS4 coming to the end of its life...what an idiot.

    ONRUSH - A New Breed of Arcade Action

    So wait, if you don't race, what do you do?? Get points for stuff? That's still competitive and so still sounds awesome.
