  1. Oh yeah. Tbh I’d forgotten a lot about that garbled mess of a film. I guess the supernova plotline checks out then. Still niggles that they ditched the TNG Romulans, through.
  2. Surprisingly good, as others have said. Though it did niggle to see 2009 Star Trek Romulans as opposed to TNG ones. Just felt distracting and unnecessary. Also... Either make this 100% the prime timeline or set it elsewhere.
  3. Having already watched a couple dozen videos, I feel qualified to say that I won't. Makes me want to lean in and fucking strangle the guy.
  4. Ran into a game-breaking bug in this. I was respawned at a checkpoint, but the game gave me an extra gun, so now I'm carrying five and have to do a climbing section to proceed. Which has obviously been made impossible because I can't drop any weapons. I mean, I can't even restart the level. I remember from the dev's reddit AMA that they said they tried to implement a 'skip cutscene' option but it produced a load of weird bugs. How?!? What kind of bicycle made of bananas coding is going on where they can't do that or even give me a mission restart option? It had never even occurred to me before now that a game might not have this. So my only option now is to restart the entire game. Two hours down the plughole, and what's worse I have to sit through all the unskippable, cliched drama again. I was enjoying it up till now but this has really soured the whole experience. Tweeted the devs for all the good it'll do, but from what I've been able to look up online this game-breaking bug has been reported up to five months ago. Your shit needs to be tighter than this if you're going to pull bonkers decisions like not having a level restart.
  5. Took me a good, long while to actually watch any of RLM's stuff in depth. Some of their Half in the Bag videos got into my recommended feed a few years ago and I watched a few minutes but the whole concept seemed pure cringe - so these guys are playing VCR repairmen who get drunk while they review movies? Yikes. Wasn't until some of the Wheel of the Worst videos were suggested to me that I thought 'that looks kinda fun,' and ended up watching loads of them in a row. I previously enjoyed a youtuber called GoodBadFlicks and this is like his stuff dialed up to 11. Somehow both immature and smart, while being absolutely hilarious in places. Rich Evans' laugh though. Holy shit. If the guy ever gets tired of this gig at RLM he has a bright future in marketing his witch's cackle to car alarms and alarm clocks. It's sad that I dread a film coming along that he finds really funny, as I'll have to sit with the volume control at my fingertips ready to dial it down at his almost passive-aggressive, drawn out shrieking mirth. Not since Jimmy Carr has a laugh been more distracting. Some fans say that it grew on them and now they love it, but I can't ever see that happening with me. Just earns a deep sigh every time.
  6. 2016 Doom was ace, though it did feel a bit like a Resident Evil 4 moment for the series. I certainly don’t mind another game in that vein, but hopefully in the future they can re-discover the balance between action and creepiness. RE2 Remake showed that it’s quite possible.
  7. That’s the one. Why am I thinking of Lindlehoff? Stupid brain. Kurtzman and all his Discovery co-conspirators that made the jump.
  8. You think we haven’t? We’re just intensely wary that Lindlehoff is the one who’s taking us there.
  9. They’re not running out of books yet, but the one S4 is based on is acknowledged by fans to be the poorest in the series. Apparently the next is rather good, though, so there’s that to console you/me.
  10. At the time, it was pretty tasty graphically, but beyond that there really wasn’t much to the story or gameplay; which makes a proposed re-release all the more odd.
  11. This didn’t grab me like I expected. I love the aesthetic, and it certainly has charm, but there was nothing to keep me coming back to it. Stirring shit up was fun the first few times but then it all just feels one note, even if I can see that the devs did their best to vary your mayhem making.
  12. You almost sound surprised. People practically clamber over each other to say that whenever a much anticipated, AAA game is delayed.
  13. I think that best sums up how I feel. It’s never equalled the heights of S1, but I do admire the writing and the fundamental issues of being, well, human, that it addresses in a light but considered way.
  14. Do you guys even kegel? Helps out a lot with such first world problems.
  15. I guess a ‘big’ improvement may have been too optimistic, when I consider the oomph that gaming P.Cs need to do justice to VR. Honestly though, from what I’ve read about super sampling, that would be pretty fab. Blanket SSAA would be a most welcome improvement.
