    You've fucked up this time then.

    High Rise - J G Ballard Adaptation

    Ballard's novels tend to feel like short stories stretched out beyond their natural length, and in that regard the film is a pretty faithful adaption. I liked Freefire way more than I was expecting though. Action films are so overblown now that the more modest scale went a long way with me.

    Along with everything else it does right, Celeste's strawberries are one of the best collectables ever IMO. They act as a sort of extra difficulty level, but one that exists inside the regular game and can be ignored if you don't fancy it.
  4. A synthetic living 'creature' that resembles a baby developmental toy, covered in fur. It has no regular buttons, and instead you squeeze, coax and coo at it to control the action on screen.

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I've skipped the last few Bomb/Beastcasts while they sort out their GOTY stuff, and instead I've been listening to the '10 year best-of' podcast they put out a while ago. A few things struck me: 1) Ryan was great 2) Jeff used to be funnier 3) Brad sounds more showbiz now that he hosts, for want of a better word. He used to sound half asleep 4) The fact that nearly all of the (user sourced) clips are at least five years old suggests that I'm not alone in thinking it isn't as good as it used to be.

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    I played XBLA Worms and Tricky Towers for a couple of years each, racking up God knows how many hours. Thankfully I'm free from both of them now, and I hope not to find a replacement.
  7. That does indeed look like Burnout. Day 1! There's a German word for everything: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sehnsucht

    Ubisoft teases next Farcry - Update: Far Cry New Dawn

    They look like twins, or is that just me being racist?
  9. This is like the controller version of Japlish. Did someone at 80s Nintendo mis-translate the button labels, putting B before A?
  10. Any thread that triggers Nintendo fans is a good thread.
  11. Nearly got one last year because of Zelda and Mario but now I'm glad I held out. Why did they stop making games for it?

    You don't need to play through the whole thing to have a useful opinion on it, but four hours is nothing in a game like that. I'd hope one of the others will remind him of that during the GOTY discussions, but I won't hold my breath.

    It's almost as if Jeff is totally jaded with modern gaming and should take more of a managerial role.

    Yeah, in this instance he was actually relaying what happened to him rather than rambling unfunny nonsense. I think I'll give the next few Bomb/Beastcasts a miss while they put together all their GOTY stuff. You can tell the last thing they want to do is sit down and talk about games on their regular podcasts while all that is going on. Expect even more tedious junk food talk than normal...
