  1. Where will I find the code for this? EDIT: Ah, it’s on that Fangamer survey page and unlocks at 1pm.
  2. My has been posted from gamecollection.net. This will be my first Pokémon game too. I thought it looked really quite good, but I keep reading things like: ‘fans are divided’, and ‘it’s not as bad as you feared’. Not as bad as I feared? Who said anything about it being bad? Are these legitimate concerns, or is it mostly fan-wank and I’m likely to have a good time with it?
  3. Absolutely this. It was Deep Space Nine or Babylon 5, rather than Star Wars. The makeup wasn’t great either.

    Crackdown 3

    Had lots of fun with this. Easily in my top 5 games this year. No boring story bits, un-skippable cutscenes, or slow walking bits; just non-stop blasting, jumping around like a superhero, gaining XP, and collecting orbs. Exactly what it should have been. It does get better after the admittedly confusing tutorial area, but the original Crackdown didn’t click for me for a good while either. Reviewers criticised it for being dated, or because “games have moved on”, but they’re still full of the same pre-scripted elements, straight-to-video writing, fetch quests, and endless inventory management. It’s all the same guff but with fancier graphics, and there’s plenty of room for uncomplicated romps like Crackdown.

    Nintendo Switch

    Yeah, this. One of the best games from last year.
  6. I thought this was great. The second half had some really fun, Star Wars-y action. I can also see why they didn’t send out advance copies I thought the sound design was disappointing - it was pretty sparse throughout, and the music was forgettable. Seeing aliens with strong American accents was a bit odd too, for some reason. But overall, it was well made and I was totally won over by the end, so I’ll definitely be tuning in for the rest.
  7. I thought they shot at the same time in the Blu-Ray versions too?
  8. I wonder how Attack of the Clones looks in 4K. Wasn’t it filmed digitally in 1080p?
  9. This looks great, and it fits perfectly within the Sonic the Hedgehog™ canon: Robotnik will clearly follow Sonic back to his own dimension at the end, which explains why he was the lone human in the games. Looking forward to spotting all of the zone name references too.
  10. I'd love to see some kind of Star Wars anthology TV show, like Black Mirror, with different people taking the writing duties for each episode.

    Apple TV +

    I have absolutely no interest in Apple TV+ in its current form, but this is clearly a ‘soft launch’. They’re giving everyone who’s bought an Apple product a free year-long sub, and they’re giving it free to students. They’ve effectively bought time to build a content library and to get the app onto TVs etc. Ultimately, it does come down to the quality of the content. If it turns out to be the International and digital-only equivalent to HBO for a fiver a month, I can see myself subbing eventually.

    Nintendo Switch

    Thought I'd put this here first for the Nintendo Switch fans. When the Wireless SNES controllers went up at the start of this month, I balked at the £8.90 postage cost, but then ordered the maximum possible (4), with the hope of sharing this cost in future. So they have arrived, and I have 3 spare, which I'll pass on for the RRP + 1/4 of the postage cost + UK postage price, which comes to £34 each (PayPal Gift, Monzo, or Bank Transfer). I won't make any profit on these! These are now OOS until 2020, and will cost £35.89 direct from Nintendo EDIT: All gone!
