  1. Exactly. I keep on referring people to the various trailers the Old Republic games have had, and they are literally the most awesome Star Wars things ever. My interest would be perked up enormously if they did something along those lines. But they won't. Because Disney hates me.
  2. I’ve effectively lost all interest in Star Wars now. It’s been a slow separation, but it’s gone. Can’t muster up any enthusiasm for going to see Solo, and Boba Fett was never a character who I cared much for in the original films either. I honestly don’t think Disney have much of a clue as to how to play Star Wars at all really.

    All things Yakuza!

    I think you need to save initially at the very first phone box you see. I missed it the first time and naively thought there’d be some sort of auto save in place...it was a bit of a bugger realising I’d lost hours of play time!

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    I'm consistently amazed that we've had relatively few Arthur C Clarke tales on the big screen (or as a TV series). He's always been one of my favourite sci-fi authors as like Asimov he's absolutely economical with his prose, so most of his novels are fairly short and just lovely to get through. City and the Stars is probably the best sci-fi novel I've ever read and it's only around 250 pages. Taking aside the quite appalling sequels to it (Gentry Lee is a bad person), I'm sure Rendezvous with Rama was supposed to be in the works, but that's been fairly quiet for years. So it's a shame really.

    Awesome stuff Chris. Really nice to see one of my figures painted so well!

    And a final couple of pics...plus a small 'cheat'. The client is going to put this in some sort of frame and have the little bird thing 'flying', so without being able to stick the bird down, I faked it :p Really fun thing to paint up, it has to be said. I miss being able to go a little wild with painting sometimes!

    He is indeed! Cheers are ringing out throughout the land!

    I regularly meet up with some chums to chew the fat whilst they paint...but I never paint with them I'm afraid to say. I'm very much someone who has to be alone to paint - and that's partly because I have a very start/stop approach to it. I don't do well at all painting in long sessions, and also kind of 'grab' the painting urge when it comes...never force the issue really! But I do think that if you can do it that way, then it's a great way to get stuff done, and have a nice time with like-minded folks! So, in my blessed solitude, I've started sticking the figures onto that base above: Edit: I should add that I was specifically asked to paint the main bloke in the colours you see...you get bonus points if you work out who he's supposed to look like :p

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    That's no pear... It's a fruit chicken.
  10. I do think if you weren't so taken with Uncharted 4, then it's worth giving Lost Legacy a go because - for me at least - it's the most rip-roaring Uncharted game there's ever been, and it's just fucking glorious! I adore Uncharted 4, but it's by far the most ponderous and contemplative of the series, but Lost Legacy feels like someone somewhere suddenly remembered what these games are loved for - namely pretty much non-stop action, great little talky bits and an absolutely wonderful end sequence which just doesn't really let up at all . In other news, my will power in not buying GoW 3 has surprisingly held strong, and I have no idea why! Does it run well on a standard PS4? I keep on stalling on new PS4 games these days in the knowledge that the Pro's out there....mocking me for 'only' having an original one :p

    A fun little commission piece I'm working on at the moment has been able to indulge me on the base a little bit...clearly not finished yet, but it's nice to do base-work

    The Unofficial Pre-E3 2018 Hype Thread

    I guess out of all the stuff confirmed for E3 this year, Last of Us 2 is the one I'm most interested in. For me, it's going to be a curious combination of questioning whether I really want a sequel to the original and the fact that I consider Naughty Dog to be the best developers out there making (mostly) linear-based games which have just the most wonderful acting and characters in them! I think the first game pretty much nailed everything and told it's story perfectly. I'm not entirely certain I need to know what else is happening in the world...but I know I'll succumb :p I'm also not even sure I'll be able to take seeing all the original's violence and emotion dialed to 11...replaying a bit Last of Us, the beginning still manages to punch me in the gut every time I see it!

    I’d love a shock announcement like: ’Someone who actually cares has bought Bioware from EA and will actually let them make decent games and not rush them out to make the accountants happy’. That’d be lovely.
  14. Well, he's on the way to... becoming ... I'm here everyday folks.
  15. Ooh, I’d quite like a Ringworld movie... ...well, I’d really like a big bucks tv series, but I’ll take anything really
