  1. You do have a bit of a narrative wobble coming up but it definitely sticks the landing (imo, etc etc).

    When BF3 launched everyone turned into a human slug whenever they went prone!

    Honestly, there’s absolutely no comparison between this and BF1 to the launches of BF3 & BF4. A few bugs don’t compare to being completely unstable and in many cases unplayable for months on end. It’s been a while but didn’t Bad Company 2 have an issue finding matches for ages as well? And splitting your squad up on different teams.

    The Thing

    Unlikely, different distributors.

    The Thing

    Arrow restore their more recent films in 4k but don’t do 4k discs, probably because it would half their profit margins for little-to-no visual gain. I say that as someone who picked up all of the 4k John Carpenter Special Editions from Studio Canal, because I love his work, and they are absolutely the best versions of those films on the market. But 4k restorations are mostly a marketing gimmick, and the encoding on Arrow’s standard Blu-rays more than holds up against the majority of them. Basically their version of The Thing is hands down the best I’ve ever seen, no need to think twice about getting it.

    Yeah, exactly. It was a joke. They don't give a shit, and nor should they. The only people who think screaming YouTubers are worth a fuck are other YouTubers. It's a toxic bubble of self-promotion and entitlement. Literally one of the best things about this forum in recent years has been how swiftly everyone saw through that tiresome shit and gave it short shrift. I presume it's the relative age of user base here.

    I'm unconvinced you know what your own point is, let alone how I'm proving it. You seem very invested in the YouTube gaming community, something which (thankfully) holds relatively little sway around here. The main reasons the game has underperformed because of bad marketing and a busy release window. As has been proven time and time again, with regards to both games and films, vocal online fanbases vastly over-estimate their influence and worth.

    I do like Frontlines but I've had so many games fall into an indefinite stalemate at this point that the match timer is effectively pointless. Maybe a sudden-death mode where both sides are reduced to limited tickets would work.

    You're just embarrassing yourself at this point. Repeatedly telling everyone that a game you don't own, but they do, is identical to BF1 despite none of the actual players on here agreeing. Posting rambling, racist 20+ minute videos about 'virtue signalling' and then whingeing when people correctly call it out as the alt-right garbage it clearly is. Acting utterly incredulous at the suggestion that a developer should follow their own instincts and ignore the vocal minority of their fanbase. Accusing said developer of being 'lazy' for not making the game you wanted, in complete ignorance of the insane amount of effort that's gone into it. It's like entitled gamer bingo. DICE are bad storytellers, I don't think anybody in this thread would ever disagree with that, but they can tell whatever story they want. None of these people were previously upset about the many other examples of exaggerated WW2 fiction, and it's transparently obvious why. Stop falling down YouTube rabbit holes, there's nothing of worth to be found there.

    I’ve had the same bug in Frontlines on Twisted Steel twice now where one of the bombs doesn’t spawn, meaning the ‘attacking’ round never ends upto and including when the match timer runs out. It just keeps playing that dramatic ‘last stand’ music and the two teams are left killing each other indefininitely.

    Battlefield V

    Nobody with an ounce of sense gives a shit. The last game offered a ludicrous portrayal of WW1 and I don’t recall anybody really whinging about that, I wonder why? It’s the best game they’ve done since Bad Company 2 (imo, etc) if anyone seriously hasn’t picked it up because they don’t like the ‘current political sentiments’ then they’re a fucking idiot. Something you’re coming across as, for actually watching that video and thinking it was worth posting in the first place.

    RDR2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    Citation needed, I’ve only seen you whinging about playing as John. They spent the whole game laying the thematic groundwork for it, and it’s one of those rare prequels that actually enhances the original rather than being beholden to it. Even most films don’t manage that. I’m not hyperbolic about Rockstar’s writing, their pacing and plotting frequently suffers at the mercy of their actual games. Mexico was the nadir of the original and likewise RDR2 spends a fair amount of time spinning plates to no avail. The Yojimbo/Fistful of Dollars-esque setup of Chapter 3 is underused, with a pointless Sheriff’s Deputy side-plot which goes nowhere. The main villain of Chapter 4 is oddly undercooked, and Guarma a colossally unnecessary mis-step that almost derails everything (can’t help but feel this was originally a surprise second map that got ditched early on). All that aside, in terms of character, they scarcely put a foot wrong here. The Paragon/Renegade cowboy slider is effectively an easter egg as neither narrative bears much scrutiny when you’re playing as a piece of shit, but the ‘true’ ending adds even more tragic weight to the original. John finally realising the consequnces of his actions, his desperation to go straight despite the mundane realities of life being stacked against him, the cathartic and triumphant feeling of finally being let off the leash against Micah and doing so whilst dreading the eventual consequences of those actions, these are perfect thematic dividends for his character which are all the more effective as moments the player experiences with him. But yeah, shame they played it so safe. Could have had you hunting down bad guys and getting into shoot-outs for a change.

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    Dolby Vision is coming to the X in the next update, I believe.

    I triggered the UFO entirely by coincidence and it scared the shit out of me.

    There’s dynamic blizzards on the mountaintop map, haven’t noticed much else. Think it might rain on Rotterdam?
