  1. Unless I'm misremembering, I believe the subtitles read: Make of that what you will...
  2. I think the only real problem with WandaVision is that it makes certain corners of the MCU seem very mundane. That doesn't look to be an issue here.
  3. Surprised there's been no mention of the book that Vision was reading to the baby: Possibly just a nice touch, but surely not there by accident...
  4. On safes, item acquisition, and trophies... The mildest of spoilers: So, clever stuff, silly stuff...
  5. You are misremembering - which is understandable, given how much the story jumps around - as Ellie references the incident with Seth during this conversation, so it is the night before Joel's death. In its chronological setting, Ellie starting to forgive Joel is what sparks her quest for revenge on Abby. When we see it, the same comments are what allows her to spare Abby. Combined with the comment above about Joel doing it all again, it's a devastating scene that the whole story hangs off, and it also more than justifies the game's use of flashbacks throughout.
  6. Looking at that reminded me about Zinio, which the library I used to work at used for members to access magazines. Edge is cheaper on there, so I'll probably use that unless anyone has any horror stories...
  7. Thanks people, I'm on Android, so I'll investigate Pocketmags
  8. Thanks, but that's the subscription page that I'm not ready for yet, and all I can find otherwise for this single issue is what seems to be print only. That may be a reasonable option in the end, but it just felt like I must be missing something. I'll see about tweeting at My Favourite Magazines.
  9. Okay, I may be being simple, but where can I buy just this issue digitally? After the lockdown and when my own situation is more stable, I intend to start subscribing to print and digital, and to donate the magazine somewhere each month after the next issue arrives. So I don't want to order just the paper copy with no digital, and I'm not ready to subscribe to both yet. Can the digital one be bought individually in whatever app the subscriber digital copies are provided in? Any insight would be appreciated!
  10. I've said it before, and I'm not the only one, so I would imagine this would work for you. Whenever you are in the location where you can buy thing, put any spare currency into vials (and then bullets). Don't know whether you'll develop a mislike of the vials, but this should make that less likely, as well as reducing the need to farm. Or if you are farming, it'll be for something significant like a weapon and you'll have plenty of health. Does that make sense? Enjoy...
  11. The lockdown has been great for my partner and me when it comes to videogames. On our first date several years ago, she told me she liked videogames, but then she would never find time to play them. We certainly have the time now. It started when Sony played a blinder and gave away the Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection, which I told my partner about just as a point of interest, and she then suggested we play them together. We rattled through all three of those, then into a replay of The Last of Us, then Resident Evil 4, and now onto Uncharted 4. While she's had some occasional frustrations that nearly derailed things - early moments in both The Last of Us and Resident Evil 4 seemed less generous than Uncharted - we've ultimately made our way through them all. We play it by ear in terms of who's in control, and I don't feel like I haven't played the game for the sections I've been spectating. I'd even say I could happily watch her play an entire game. I hope we can still find time for games once the lockdown is over (if ever...). I realise that's not the most helpful response, but it might be worth noting that the Uncharted games have modes and options that allow things to be tackled in more relaxed ways. Not just your simple Easy mode, but also explorer modes without enemies and various player assist options (that we haven't yet used, so I can't report on further).
  12. A very good chance... https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2020/03/18/unveiling-new-details-of-playstation-5-hardware-technical-specs/ (Near the bottom.) I'm on a launch PS4 and an older TV, so I look forward to eventually experiencing whatever small enhancements a PS5 brings to PS4 games...
  13. Your guess would be wrong! I'm not in the camp that feels either of these games are overrated, I'd say they're both of the highest standards of quality. They've long felt to me like companion pieces in terms of excellence viewed through two rather different lenses, and playing them over the course of a week or so each while locked down was an experience that will stay with me for quite some time. Honestly, I don't even really like ratings, but clearly these two feel like they're in the 10 area of not really liking ratings...
  14. Can I do the last two? They happened to be The Last of Us and Resident Evil 4, so I'll let you take a guess at my rating.
  15. I was looking at this on PSN, and I guess I can't have bought a new game for a while, because those prices looked kinda high! How does this work these days? I'm not too worried about the pre-order bumf, err, bonuses, and money is tight due to the lockdown, so will there be a slightly cheaper option on launch day? Am only interested in the downloadable version. And put me down as huge fan of the original - I too have just completed another playthrough ahead of the sequel - but rather sceptical about the existence of the second. Haven't properly watched a trailer since the announcement trailer (watched the latest one with the sound off) so going in fairly blind... Hoping the suggestions of a fairly heavy handed story and exploitative seeming violence are either misdirects or far from the full picture.
  16. Mine arrived yesterday, haven't had an issue of Edge in a while, nice to drop back in now. While I'm a fan of Edge's objective style and tone, the personal moments behind this issue (check the Lonely Mountains entry) are heartwarming. Horrific as the Covid 19 pandemic is, it's good to have this issue as an artifact of the times.
  17. I don't believe so - watched them all recently, and pretty much remember myself going 'Ooh, nasty' during The First Avenger around then. Also, on the subject of gore and editing, specifically in Avengers...
  18. Maybe not huge, but given the reaction here to your adventures then perhaps enthusiastic! Plus, if you stream in YouTube you have a record of your play... If you like that sort of thing... Anyway, I'd watch if the time was right
  19. What's all this 'Papa G' about though? If I recall correctly, is his proper title not 'Sweet Daddy G'? I don't know, people these days, no standards...
  20. Eurogamer preview is very glowing also, really looking forward to this: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-02-26-ori-and-the-will-of-the-wisps-is-a-triple-a-2d-metroidvania
  21. Splendid work spanx, and another vicarious adventure for us all... I'll reiterate the point about putting blood echoes into vials any time you're back in the Hunter's Dream. You'll soon have more than you know what to do with. Feels like the game should have told us this, it works so well.
  22. Seems like it's probably a bit late to say it given where you are in the game, but the trick is to always put spare blood echoes into purchasing vials (and bullets) after you've bought whatever weapon or other item you want. You'll soon build up those echoes again, and you'll quickly find you're ahead of the curve on vials.
