    Not Telling
  1. I recently watched Jurassic World and it seemed the entire film built up towards justifying a gloriously ridiculous climax where It might not be high art, but if you're making an utterly needless and cynically commercial film like Jurassic World then you deserve credit for delivering what the audience wants. It still makes me laugh thinking about it - it's a really good bad film. I find it hard to imagine this Tomb Raider film could possibly deliver in such a fashion, not least because I doubt it includes any genetically-modified super-dinosaurs.
  2. Steam

    Anyone want Steam keys for both Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 Enhanced Edition for a £5 donation to a charity of your choice? Send me a PM. Edit: Sold!
  3. The Humble Thread

    Humble are apparently sending out surveys about turning Monthly unto a two-tier service, with a stripped-down $10 version (with fewer games and without trove or the 10% off) and a $15-20 premium version. I think this would lead me to unsubscribe outright.
  4. V-Rally 4 - PS4, XB1, PC, Switch

    V-Rally. Wow, that's a blast from the past. I remember having the original and thinking it was shit because all the cars handled like they were on ice.
  5. There are plenty of games in genres that aren't my thing but it seems pointless to talk about them. In terms of games I should like, I didn't get on with Mario Galaxy 1/2, which I thought were dull and lacked any challenge. Found Rayman Origins/Legends boring and charmless too. Don't like Yoshi's Island either - pretty graphics on top of a crap platformer. Didn't get on with Overwatch at all - didn't seem mechanically satisfying to play at all and seemed very poorly designed compared to TF2.
  6. What’s Bluepoint remaking next?

    MGS was my first thought and would make a ton of sense for Konami - low-risk use of existing IP. As an off-the-wall suggestion, what about a remake of one of GTA3/VC/SA? Would be a big project but make a ton of sense for 2K.
  7. It seems pretty clear to me that they are going to do past/present/future in rotation. Which is what they should have done in the first place when they shifted to three different developers - it never made much sense for all three developers to be making future warfare titles in an annualised franchise. Having different settings should each title more distinct, reduce franchise fatigue and increase the retail lifespan of each game. I imagine when the next futuristic CoD comes along (Infinite Warfare 2?) there will be a lot less backlash when it's not the third game in a row to have a futuristic setting. I also suspect they will attach a MW2 remaster to that title to ensure it sells.
  8. What a strange film. Combine a superhero film with African tribal stereotypes in a sci-fi setting with a serious film about American race relations then throw in chunks of spy, heist, action, war and fantasy films. And the film is plot-and-action-driven with a complete non-entity of a lead character.
  9. Nintendo Direct - March 8, 2018

    You could buy it for £30 at launch. And it included the DLC. And the game was only about a year old. They reduced the US launch price to $50 from $60 because of criticism over its price. Sony bafflingly did make their GoW3 remaster full price at launch and it stayed that price for a good 30 seconds.
  10. Nintendo Direct - March 8, 2018

    Having thought about it, the strangest announcement is Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker getting a 3DS port. That seems... kind of pointless, really. A lot of effort for something that isn't going to sell many copies at all.

    Lots for the Nintendo faithful/10 I think Nintendo would want to make it clear if it wasn't a port. Then again, Smash Wii U is 4 years old this year, though, so it's not impossible it could be a new game.

    I think this means someone at Nintendo has rediscovered Jet Set Radio

    Hey, here's the Crash port. Hopefully this means the PC port isn't far off.
