  1. Star Mazer Kickstarter....

    Starr Mazer: DSP got an Early Access release today - a 2D shooter offshoot of the main game: Being a backer of the full game I got a 50% off code and had a quick blast. Early impressions are extremely positive. Going to crack out the joystick later and have a proper go, but graphics, music and general ambience are exceptional.
  2. Star Wars!

    X-Wing Wave 10 announced at Gencon. The new Condition cards look interesting/divisive! Kylo Ren's shuttle looks massively OP! Good run down here:
  3. @Garwoofoo, to your first spoiler: that stuff makes much more sense after reading the Dark Tower books. I'm hoping: Some potential for some really nasty shit, there. As for your second spoiler, that'll be solid gone.
  4. Yep, they're shuffling everything forward 30 years, so instead of being 1955-1985 it's going to be roughly 1985-present day. Any time where there were no mobiles and kids were actually allowed out the house on their own is fine... I'm not getting good early vibes from this, in all honesty: I thought that US version of Mama Andrés Muschietti did was about as scary as a dry fart. Worst crime was inserting a load of shonky CGI when practical effects would have served the setup much better. There are a good few easy home runs in IT, of course - giant spiders, leeches, werewolves - but It'd take genuine skill to make stuff like a handful of balloons in a fridge or a giant plastic Paul Bunyan statue frightening. Let alone make a bunch of orange lights look like the scariest thing in the universe. And he can't leave ALL of that out... right?
  5. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    @revlob Excellent work! Very clean lines. Which primer are you using? I've tried a few and the (sadly most expensive I tried) Citadel stuff gives me the best finish.
  6. Playstation Vita

    The Henkaku emulator is like the dawn of a beautiful new day: unshackled from deskbound emulation, or trying to juggle screen/controller on my Android tab, I’m racing through some wonderful stuff. After five days I’ve completed six games, and have dozens queued up. Pure joy.
  7. Playstation Vita

    @Sprite Machine This implies you can use the workaround that allows you to upgrade to 3.60, to also downgrade from 3.61. Worth a try.
  8. Playstation Vita

    You know what, emulation is what I’ve been praying for with the Vita. I had to do a bit of dicking around to get to 3.60, but after that it was a doddle. Very happily playing Super Castlevania IV and Neo turf Masters NGPC. If a Saturn emu comes out, my head might pop Has anyone managed to get the DS emulator working, by the way? It won’t load-up for me.
  9. Pac-Man Championship Edition 2

    Can't believe there's no handheld version announced; I hope that changes soon. I've had three Sony handhelds that cheerfully hosted the CE Minis game.
  10. Shed definitely seen it. She corrected Robbie over a scene with Batman and Quinn. He went on to say the way it was shot was basically misogynistic, as it empowered Batman in a scene where he had physical dominance over Quinn. Her rebuttal was essentially, "Well I'm not a critic and I didn't see it that way, therefore you're wrong and people are sick of 'experts' so ner ner ner I'm sticking my fingers in my ears now".
  11. ... and to bring it back around, listen to Edith Bowman's flat refusals of Robbie Collins's Suicide Squad review to perfectly illustrate your point.
  12. Mr. Robot - Amazon video

    I just watched the first episode - utterly fantastic, I thought!
  13. A movie watchers blog

    I pretty much agree with that. With Blue Ruin, a lot of reviews said it worked because it was a revenge drama with a realistic twist. I thought that was true, but not why it was so good - it worked because it built drama from character, slowly and subtly. Green Room's fine but it's a fairly standard genre piece, for me, as the characterisation's nothing more than perfunctory. It's perfectly fine, but disappointing after Ruin.
  14. I wasn't as impressed as you. Thought it was pleasantly entertaining, the period verisimilitude is astonishing and the performances good, but the mystery itself seems pretty standard. It came across as an ET / X-Files mashup, which sounds great on paper, but is more nostalgic and reassuring than exciting. There's definitely enough here to make me watch all eight, though. Hoping some really interesting and unusual stuff happens over the next few eps.
  15. Best last gen/current gen arcade style games

    Maybe not that, then?
