  1. I usually feel that but in this felt it was directed at the couple, so just found it heart warming and altogether lovely.
  2. There's some social progress. Andor could never have happened in the '00's. No 'Merican would tolerate someone who speaks space French in a lead role.
  3. Those people really don't deserve an apology.
  4. She's Lady Fenring, if that helps. You can hang a load of stuff around the character. How the Bene Gesserit are influencing the great and minor houses, the breeding plan stuff, relationships to the Emperor and Feyd Rautha. You could easily ignore all that stuff. Given the way the first film tied a lot of Dune's laborious world building around character, chucking an actor of Seydeux's qualities in the mix with those spinning lore parts really peaks my curiousity.
  5. I like that Ep 3 ended with saying fuck you to the pious trope of
  6. That's an interesting character to include in part 2.
  7. FXGuide's latest podcast is on season three, if you're interested in behind the scenes stuff. https://pca.st/episode/56ec81b5-bd63-48d6-90fa-67b2dbac7f04
  8. That'll get some knickers in a twist! It is a great film if you're not a particular fan of the original(s). It's the first film that sprang to mind when I saw the thread resurface.
  9. I liked it, but if they digitally finessed the eyes it could have been fantastic.
  10. Surely this is his most memorable attachment.
  11. They could have spent their vfx budget a little more tastefully. Drop a few of those expensive jumping around shots and do a little more digital makeup, especially around the eyes.
  12. The technical preview will be later in the summer. You can sign up on their website. Wasn't really clear how it played on the Extended showcase, but it looked pretty in crappy YouTube blockovision.
  13. You've not spend enough time around MMO players, or at least not the insane ones I have.
  14. I find it baffling as well. There is a tendancy for players to find the most boring path though. If you can level up by spending 40 hrs resource collecting on the galaxy's blandest moon, a fair selection of players will being doing just that. And then complain that the game is too grindy.
  15. She directed on The Mandalorian. Virtual stages aren't new to her. I can't remember which episode she did. It would be interesting to look back and see if it's a similar mix of some good character bits and bizarre action.
  16. You can't have been following things with Kojima that closely! An MSG collaboration on a cloud based game has be bubbling away as a rumour for ages.
  17. They're not puzzle games, they're games with puzzles. Too much friction would ruin their atmosphere.
  18. Don't they have the rumoured more old style AC game that was Valhalla DLC but is now a standalone game to pimp?
  19. Oxide & Microsoft's turn based 'civ-like' made a cinematic showing at their summer show. They didn't show any of the game in that but they did post some actual screenshots up on their website. Hopefully they show some more on Tuesday's thingy. Might be interesting, given Oxide have an interesting engine that can handle a lot of units/stuff and ex-Civ developers are involved. Like the very detailed view, even if I am a little bored of tilt shift. Few more shots here https://www.arahistoryuntold.com/media/
  20. They were involved in Vadar Immortal (2019) and released Bleeding Edge (2020). The latter didn't work out but was an interesting idea. I wouldn't be surprised if Hellblade 2 is a second half of next year title.

    Diablo IV

    Diablo 4 was on the next 12 months section of the presentation. First half of the year release would be great if they can manage that. Diablo 3 is still the best couch coop experience on Xbox. Frankly it's a bit poop that there's so few really epic local coop games.
  22. I find the presenters' hand gesturers in these shows unnatural and really distracting. They must all have to attend some sort of compulsory 'Hand Gestures for Presentations' course.
