    I love Breath of the Wild, but there are areas where it’s not great, primarily the story but also there’s bits of filler that feel like they’d decided on x number of shrines or Korok seeds and some of them are shite. Bloodborne not only has no weak areas, but it’s a much more unified whole of a game, with every element feeding to others and improving them. If it had Dark Souls’ level of world design I think it would be perfect.


    Yeah botw wasn't perfect but I put like three hundred hours into it and it was just a delight from start to finish. Big mad smile on my face the whole time. 


    And the sense of freedom in it is pretty much unrivaled. The joy of being presented with a problem and being able to figure out a solution to it yourself and have it work rather than having to do some specific trigger to get past it. Magic. 


    It was also just great for all mad intangible hard to describe shit. Like the "feel" of it. I don't mean emotionally I mean like it had some weird almost tactile effect from synergy between the controls and the display and the sound. I can't even really describe it properly. I think it's like what people who are into ASMR videos feel. 

    The only other game I've ever got it from was Journey. But botw done it better.

    After finishing this on Switch a few weeks ago I've been hankering to get back into something Souls-like.  Dark Souls 2 is only 8 quid on PSN, is it any good on PS4?


    It isn't any good in general.

    This is Stephen King all over, and I speak as a fan.


    Depends how long it is. Haven't read everything he's ever done but most of his shorter stuff that I've read is consistent from start to finish. And everything longer he's done that I've read has started strong and then completely shat the bed. Best possible example is the Dark Tower. The Gunslinger is the best thing he's ever done. It doesn't read like him at all (which sounds like an insult since I've said how much I like it, but I've probably read more Stephen King than any other author), it's like a mad document that somehow made it from that world to this world. Whereas all the rest are very much Stephen King writing about that world. It's like when he writes something really good he tries to milk it or something.


    He's a hard writer to pin down. A masterful storyteller and a total fucking hack. Often in the same book. Often on the same page.





  4. Hacksaw Ridge


    Unbelievably dumb. And hacky as fuck, but watchable enough.






    This suffered from being excessively hyped from a few places. Wasn't half bad but was expecting more. 




    The Machinist


    This really creeped me out. That big guy with the weird teeth is one of the most sinister looking people I've ever laid eyes on. I'm surprised he isn't in a lot more films where someone with a creepy/mennacing presence is needed. 



  5. Sunshine


    Very nice looking, good music, everything else though was very hit and miss. It was on course for a respectable 3/5 might even have gone 4 if feeling generous and then with like half an hour to go it took a big massive shit all over itself that made me focus more on all the things that didn't quite work rather than what did.

    The Empire Strikes Back 5/5.


    Was not going to turn down the chance to watch my favourite movie of all time on the big screen.

    Done the same a few weeks back. 6/5


    And over the next few days I'll be going to see:


    Pulp Fiction tomorrow. 


    Goodfellas Sunday. 


    The Matrix Monday. 


    Batman Begins Tuesday. 


    Corona cinema is best cinema.
