  1. F%^k me! The 10 inch screen in the Picade is a pain in the arse. The instructions are not clear atall... :/
  2. Fuck that makes me feel old. I love Fight Club so much.
  3. I'm not suggesting you will stream Candy Crush. 5G is literally right around the corner which changes the game when it comes to the kind of speeds that will available whilst on the go (Intel is providing Apple with the 5G chips for their 2020 iPhone). And yeah I think iOS devices are underpowered compared to a Xbox one X, PS4 Pro or a PC, don’t you?
  4. What other than that being the potentially most disruptive tech in gaming at the moment? Digital Foundry have spoken about how things are changing rapidly in this space - and streaming sorts out all Apple's hardwire limitations. As I said it won't be for those people that are sensitive to lag - but for everyone else it will be just fine. If they are developing the Netflix of gaming - it will be as a streaming service.
  5. I can see them having a ubiquitous streaming service that lets you play both treble AAA games and the mobile ones. The hardcore won’t touch it because of the lag, but anybody else will be drawn to having the latest PC games to play on their phone. Maybe.
  6. Thanks man. Good to know. I went for the 10 inch screen version... seems a few people are having issues with it.. did you find a good guide for installing it correctly?
  7. Let’s face it there’s not really much of a fan base left. For the record I loved Bridesmaids, felt apathy towards The Heat, and really didn’t like Spy at-all (I saw the extended version). GB 16 is the worst of that bunch for its sign-posted, self indulgent comedy. And turning legit criticism of the movie into something political is pathetic imo.
  8. No one rational agrees with the how Lesley Jones got over treated over GB 16. But her reaction (and Paul Feig’s) to the news of this film is petty and bitter. The audience don’t want to see anymore from that team because it was an unfunny mess, that ignored most of the themes that made the orginals so beloved.
  9. This was posted a few months back on YouTube and didn’t get much attention. So it sounds like work has been going on a while (which it must have been to hit a release next summer) and all three of the original team are in.
  10. Ok think I’m going to try and build one of these. They look really fun. Only question i have - is it possible to add a second controller?
  11. I can see this never coming out and quietly going away (sadly).
  12. I think the opposite. Expectations are going to be at rock bottom after the last one. And Jason Reitmen is a very respected and talented director. I doubt he'd go near it unless he had a pretty good idea of how to do something good with it. Tully was one of the best films of last year. And he knows how to do characters really, really well. And a comedy (especially one in this franchise) is all about that.
  13. Jason Reitman is a very talented director and you can bet his involvement will bring on Murray etc. Personally I think this could be really great.
  14. I’m not saying Episode 9 is going to flop. I’m sure it will do just fine. I just don’t ever recall antisipcation being so low for a new SW movie in the whole time I have been following them. And I think a lot of that blame rests with how disjointed and poorly planned the big picture of the story is. It sort of feels like the story is already done. Anything else is just going to feel like JJ milking it. I’d love to be wrong though. And yeah i think you are right that a big slice of TLJ’s box office was perhaps due to fans going back to check if they really hated it, as much as they thought they did. I was one of them. And I’m sorry to say I hated it more each of the three times I watched it. And I don’t think I was alone. Hence Solo’s box office - which must have lost ALOT of money - when you factor in massive reshoots and marketing. I thought it was forgettably alright, but normals just didn’t see the appeal - and didn’t turnout. And a lot of fans had just had enough of anything Disney SW - especially with the way it handled them in the aftermath of TLJ. The short term future of these movies is far from certain - precisely because of TLJ - hence Disney doubling down on new TV series (which sound completely unappealing to me) - but i guess we’ll see.
  15. @MawdlinThose figures are not adjusted for inflation. And if they were TLJ would be number 43 on the list. https://www.filmsite.org/boxoffice3.html There are ALOT of very vocal fans that really HATE The Last Jedi. And Disney will have noticed. It's their business to notice. The fanbase are the bread and butter of any franchise. And everything else is a bonus. So its really not wise to split 50% of them, and I doubt anybody at Disney wanted that or saw it coming. In 2015 the Star Wars franchise was movie grail (and a license to print money). In 2019, Episode 9 is less anticipated than the new Avengers movie. Or Jumaji 2.
  16. The Force Awakens is all over the shop in terms of its plot. But boy is its heart in the right place. And the new cast shine. Then TLJ comes along and tells you fuck those guys. And fuck that heart. I think this film trilogy will go down in movie history, as a text book lesson in how NOT to handle an entertainment franchise.
  17. id love a new Outrun game with next-gen physics (but arcade style). Thats the bit that seems lacking on newer games, the physics and chaos haven't progressed much in the last 13 years. Something akin to this:
  18. As the owner of a VIVE I really never expected that much from the PS VR. And hence never tried or used one until this Christmas. HOLY SHIT! It’s great and I soo easy to use. I actually much prefer the optics over the vive and cant see much or any screen door. I also find the tracking of the headset much more reliable. And I’m blown away by the games. Astrobot is the VR game I having been waiting for and is like having your own huge digital playground. And all this for £150.. everyone should have one - and genuinely surprised at how great it is. Next question... I have one old move controller from my PS3. Is it worth it to get another for this? And for which games?
  19. Thats exactly why I watched it! Haven’t read the book, but quite enjoyed the film.
  20. Bought one of these for me and my nine year old for Christmas and just seen the “not for children under 12” warnings all over it. bought it for Astrobot mainly. Is anyone else letting younger kids play this or am I going to have ruin his Xmas * should have done more research...
  21. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Was hoping to see that somewhere. This has been a much better series than series 3 or 4.. back to laughing out loud as opposed to mild chuckling.
  22. This film would have done so much better if it was coming out right before Christmas. Feels like there would have much more appetite for it.. God only knows why Disney didn't delay it (well licensing obligations I guess). I was getting very used to a new Star Wars movie every December.
