    Telltale Games closing

    Feel for everyone laid off, and I’m not totally familiar with their work outside TWD, GoT... but I abandoned both after receiving them for free. Afaik they were only producing this one type of game on a creaky engine, which looked dated but also performed badly - you’re going to get diminishing returns no matter what the license is if you don’t evolve and diversify. Until Dawn did what Telltale games set out to do far more effectively (for me) and they may not have had the budget or resources but that’s the standard they should’ve been working towards. I think the episodic model has proven not viable.

    Joker origin film - Joaquin Phoenix Confirmed

    Because they don’t want to blow the pay-off of a Batman v Joker movie without setting up a Cinematic Universe first. ie. they’re idiots.

    Spider-Man PS4 - Insomniac swings into action!

    Into the third act and just had an awesome boss fight that mechanically was quite complex, but the game just pitched it perfectly.

    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia!

    Laughed at Frank and the vomiting. Problem is outside of Dee and Artemis the other women on the show aren’t strong. And it was weakly riffing on an already mediocre episode.
  5. Serious question: Does anybody actually think any of the characters in Infinity War will stay dead? Does anybody actually give a fuck as a result? Marvel are going to keep making shiny, explodey CGI blockbusters regardless which of these characters live or die, they're all interchangeable, disposable, and largely the same, and no consequence is permanent, so... who gives a crap about plot spoilers in the MCU? Just me? Ok.

    Can the joycon emulate light gun games? It has a pointer camera* right? *Apologies for the technical jargon

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    Yeah, it suggests they didn't want to give the premium edition away for £3.99. They aimed to give existing paying players premium for free, and offer new players the base game for £3.99 and this was the only way they could do it. I guess they figured the number of players who'd twig they could download the premium beforehand and then pick up the base game afterwards would be minimal.

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    The way they've gone about this offer is weird. It's essentially BF1 Premium Edition for £3.99. But it's as if they wanted to keep it low-key, so they release the premium edition free primarily so existing users will have access to all the maps and boost the player count as part of the promo for BFV. Then stagger the base game discount afterwards. I wonder from a marketing perspective what the logic was, and what demographic they were going for. Apparently there are 30 maps now?! What an unexpected treat this has turned out to be - my winter gaming sorted!

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    What a ridiculous amount of content this is for £4. First time playing on Pro, it runs so much better than the OG console. Silky smooth, a ton more maps, I can actually win gun battles, respawn doesn’t take forever. Coming into this game almost completely fresh having only touched on it in 2016... I can’t see me needing BFV. This plays so much better than that beta.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Maybe. It was a heavily pushed title and reviewed suspiciously well for a game that was proper pants. See also off the top of my head: Krazy Ivan Rascal G-Police Exhumed (may have been actually good) Not of which will be bothering the forgotten bangers thread any time soon.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake!

    If anyone has the wrong face it’s Claire. Find it funny how Ada’s design riles people. I like the coat, glasses are dumb but overall it works - I do hope they haven’t messed with Leon and Ada’s dynamic too much. Trailer suggests Ada acts like the dominant superspy from the get go, as opposed to being a mysterious civilian Leon tries to help.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    You can use wireless 8bitdos, you can build standby/off-switch functionality, you can buy classic console cases, the UI is great. When it actually works it’s magic, but it’s crying out for an accessible, stable and less complicated setup. I think people tend to go down a wormhole of setting the things up and incrementally improving it, and barely touch the games themselves. Also Chase HQ II didn’t run properly and when I tried to run Ridge Racer it crashed the system - so when you have thousands of games but the ones you check out don’t work - what’s the point? You then have to keep on top of software versions and keep it updated to improve emulation, it becomes less about replaying classics and more about curation and functionality.
