  1. Yup. It really needs some storm troopers heads flying off at the every least.
  2. I hope this isn't going to be a 'give it a playthrough when it's only a tenner' type game but it kind of looks like it is.
  3. Spectacular episode, probably the best of the series, but...
  4. It started off well and had me thinking we were in for an old school Thrones experience where somehow psychological, political, tactical and strategic elements are plausibly blended into a fantastical medieval world. Needless to say, by the end of the episode I was disappointed.
  5. That makes sense. I don't think it was just the darkness that was the problem, it was also all the smoke and fog giving the compression algorithm a hard time -- very little common information between frames.
  6. The death I felt saddest about was that of my Plasma TV two years ago. A spectacular if slightly dumb episode, not a patch on the Battle of the Bastards but still good.
  7. I reckon Qyburn at King's Landing has something cooked up for the army of the dead. He's pretty clued up about that kind of stuff. So no immediate Winterfell fight but then Cersei doing better at King's Landing than expected.
  8. Got a feeling the army of the dead won't actually attack Winterfell but just contain everyone there while the NK goes off to do other things.
  9. You make it sound dangerous. Might it cause premature blindness, panic attacks, or even PTSD?
  10. From the videos I've seen it all looks like very standard open world gameplay. This doesn't mean RDR2 won't be a good game but it will be a very expensive and beautifully crafted iteration of the genre rather than anything revolutionary. Be interesting to see what everyone thinks of it.
  11. Depends how old they are and how mature. I saw a girl being taken out of the screening by her parents because it was too much for her. She can't have been much more than ten though so she shouldn't have been in there anyway. It's a very affecting film because the beginning establishes that the soldiers are very real relatable people and then when things get nasty and you see a load of dead bodies in the mud it's hard to take. You have to watch it yourself and decide bearing in mind what you know about the intended audience. I would think that 13 is the bare minimum but then I wouldn't be
  12. I saw this last night. It's amazing how the old footage has been brought to life -- not just the people but the action. There are shots of mines going off lifting great domes of earth into the air, guns firing shells that shake the tiles from the roofs of nearby buildings, and tanks chugging across hellish wasteland squeezing the mud from their tracks. Even if it was all done today in cgi, I'm not sure they would be able to get so many of the little details right. All the narration is made up of recordings of veterans and knitted together to tell a story that is funny, exciting and
  13. I loved Origins and bought all the DLC. I was concerned this would be a reskin of that game but it sounds as though it's more than that with genuinely different gameplay elements. I'm not ready to dive into another AC marathon just yet but will no doubt be diving in later on after the inevitable Ubi patch fest has fixed all the stuff that will probably be broken on release.
  14. It was all pretty predictable though wasn't it? If you strip out all the Star Wars stuff it's a standard heist movie that's been done a million times before. It's not a bad film by any means but if you don't try and tell a very ambitious story the least you can do is make it feel coherent. It's basically just a space western but then Han Solo is a space cowboy so that's fine I suppose. Rogue One was a darker more ambitious story that was harder to tell. The result is more convoluted but it's also more interesting imo.
  15. I thought this was OK, as others have said the Star Wars 'universe' was realised really well. However, I wish they'd left out some of the sillier fan service bits, which just detracted from the story by being implausible.
  16. Yeah, they killed off too many characters for either this or something equally silly to happen in the next film. Still, Infinity War was bloody good. It made sitting through some of the crappier MCU films worth it.
