  1. Odyssey is out next week for PC. Quite exciting to get the second expansions on my lifetime pass six years after the first! Not sure I'll actually play it much. The exploration on foot stuff doesn't seem to add a lot. Refreshed planet tech and tenuous atmospheres though. Will make my most 3000ly trip back to the bubble fun.
  2. I don't know what Serkis is like as a director. The effects in Mowgli were so uncanny and awful we turned it off almost immediately.
  3. So I'm curious, but not curious enough to sub to NowTV and watch this, does the show actually feature any intergalactic travel?
  4. That's like the ACII's example isn't it? That sequence is aimed at the the player character, not the actual player.
  5. The film suffered from some of the worst effects in a Marvel film. The big fight in a field and the monorail fight are just crap. A real shame when the two fights for the crown fights are good. And the bar fight. The next one hopefully won't suffer from being sandwiched between two Avengers films.
  6. Really enjoyed this. The o ring problem was annoying But it isn't our timeline so who knows what happened in its development.
  7. It's a new podcast, they're doing the seasons again.
  8. Shrink your browser window. Better res won't come in until they move from Xbone to XSX chips. The One can only do 720p streaming. It was due around now, but chip shortages and all that, wouldn't be surprised if it happens later.
  9. Jesus. Isn't trolling Snyder threads doing it for you these days?
  10. Starfield's probably out this year, so pretty much a given they'll show it off. ES6 is too far out unless they go with another teaser.
  11. It's something else that's causing that. It's usually fine on my 75Mb connection, even with the kids streaming other stuff.
  12. I'll only count Bumblebee. This is either the second Transformers film or also won't exist.
  13. Really enjoyed a few quick goes on Rain on Your Parade. Perfect 15 minutes of gaming via tablet / streaming. Silliness and opportunity for bastardly behaviour are always gaming wins in my book. The cloud's gleeful face is brilliant.
  14. Oh, definitely this. Love of an era in the UK, love of game art, love of games in general and you can feel the dev's poured a chuck of their life experiences in there too. Just wish it wasn't too hard for me.
  15. Really enjoyed this. McGregor, Boorman and the team are fun to watch and they travel through some amazing parts of South America. Perfect pandemic watch. The first three episodes overdo the charge drama and there are points where there's too much engineered drama/time pressure. Nothing unbearable though. I didn't see LWD and LWR was so long ago. Was producer David always such a great watch? The bus bit seemed like the most American producer thing ever.
  16. I tended to approach it the platform bits as either an isometric or camera puzzle, depending on whether you have camera control or not. It kept the frustration at the right level for me.
  17. Mrs Monkeydog is enjoying Viking and I get dragged along to play. It's not bad. It's doesn't have quite the satisfying bashing of Diablo 3. Also found the progress curve a bit off. Unless we missed something, we had to grind a few areas to level up and we've just hit the green poison realm. Not sure what the next grind path is really. Diablo does progression much better, in that you never really have to think about that.
  18. I watched the original VHS release at 15 yrs old and the Directors Cut (DVD) at some point in my 20's. Both times were fairly dull experiences, world/visuals/batty's speech aside. Bar those 42 words, it never transported me anywhere. I'm tempted to rewatch it*, but not sure I'll find more there for me than I did 20 years ago. I enjoyed watching 2049 far more than either of my watches of the first film, for a variety of reasons. Reason doesn't matter though, I was really absorbed when watching it. One of my favourite films of '17. * Version based on thread consens
  19. The loading times to add a bit a friction to the service. Xcloud is running on OneS's at the moment. They have plans to switch it to XSX chips. That was supposed to be the first half of the year. I'd have thought the global chip shortage might postpone that shift.
