  1. No I think it will be out this year - probably a Christmas release, given that they are likely to be positioning it as a more mainstream offering , with the George RR Martin connection and everything. Don't forget that this will mean they get to release it twice - an original release on current-gen hardware then a remaster on next-gen. We know From like doing that sort of thing. Also for some reason I am getting the feeling that this is going to be the start of a new franchise, like Dark Souls, rather than a stand-alone title like (so far) Bloodborne or Sekiro. Again , it's probably just the GRRM connection that's making me feel that - like this is going to make them too much money to want to do it just the once.
  2. I loved the comic and thought this was pretty good. Nothing's really going to live up to the comic if that's what you're expecting but by Netflix standards this was a pretty good Stranger Things-syle urban horror/fantasy thing. For those asking how different it is - it seems to cover most of the same events as the comic but in a vastly different order (one major plot twist at the end, that isn't in the comic, being a notable exception). Its more faithful than a lot of other recent adaptions like Preacher and The Boys that are basically the same characters in totally different situations.
  3. Pictures emerging on my Facebook feed of people receiving and unboxing these now ...anyone here got one yet?
  4. The SNES is not the first system that comes to mind when I think of Doom. No sir.
  5. I always loved the look and feel of these games and even back in the day I realised they were doing something pretty special. But I never managed to get far in them. Might try them again with a guide one of these days.
  6. Interesting, how did you access it? Was it an emulation? That would have been pretty impressive considering the primitive state of emulators at the time. Galaxians on the loading screen of Ridge Racer I seem to remember? Maniac Mansion hidden inside Day Of The Tentacle? (is it there on the remasters as well, can't remember).
  7. Are you sure that's how it works? That makes it sound like I can just claim I own the rights to the music on any video, and then collect royalties on it for 30 days while they work out that I'm lying.
  8. My holy grail is the actual Holy Grail. Imagine having that in your cabinet surrounded by your boxed original games and figurines.
  9. How does that work? Does he just pop up as a random encounter at a place where you'd usually meet a standard enemy? Does the fight use the slums background graphics?
  10. I don't believe it is time to ditch consoles. PCs are great and everything but there are some things consoles will just always be better at.
  11. Is online gaming on the PC really always free though? I know there isn't the sort of universal subscription charge that console online network operators get to charge due to their ownership and total control over who can access their networks. But don't EA, or Epic, or whoever ... Find other ways to monetise online play of their games? I honestly don't know because I don't play AAA PC games online. But if it isn't monetised who pays for the server costs?
  12. Tried to get my head round assembler language a few times when I was a kid but I didn't have the patience for it. Eventually accepted that BASIC would always be my limit when it came to coding. Really interesting to see these breakdowns but a lot of it goes over my head.
  13. Got to be honest and say I never liked this one - one of the all-time-greats definitely but I just always found it too hard to have an enjoyable time playing it and never persevered to get good. I love Robotron, Joust, Sinistar and a lot of the other Williams classics.
  14. Interested to know what you considered "worse" - as I said in my post, I can see there are worse examples of outright racism in the movie, but it's the casual and complicit nature of Alabama's comments about Persians, and Clarence's use of "fag" that jarred with me, more than anything else in the film I think. Edit: Ah I see you explained what you considered worse a few posts later.
