    Xbox One Console Thread

    If you’re anything like me, and most of the other people I know who own one, you’ll buy it intended to use it on your 1080p screen and end up buckling and buying a 4k one within two months. That’s not to say there wasn’t a noticeable improvement on a HD screen, there absolutely was, but the visual leap when going full 4k/HDR was phenomenal. 4k in particular makes a much bigger difference for games than it does for film.

    Holmes and Watson - Ferrell and Reilly

    I actually worked on this. I'm glad they've clearly kept the swearing, because most of my favourite jokes were in hard-R rating territory.
  3. Have they basically rotoscoped it? Perhaps because the edges of such old film stock are so dull it looks less obvious than with modern footage.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    That’s because of Bradford Young, dark cinematography is kinda his ‘thing’. I think it’s beautifully shot but great but agree that the style is quite incongruous with the tone.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Demo disc classic Overboard perhaps? Lifeforce TENKA for a taste of baffling pre-twin stick FPS controls. That said I was always fond of Alien Trilogy, but I guess that and Resurrection are ruled out for licensing reasons.
  6. Diamonds does open with a montage of Bond hunting Blofeld as revenge for her murder though.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Yeah, Vader. It was 100% a reshoot. Just think, at one point there was a cut of Rogue One where they’d brought back Vader for a single scene of him getting out the bath to have a meeting. I’d have been fucking livid.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    I’m 100% with @linkster on Rogue One, it’s a shallow load of nothing, and that robot who everyone seem to love doesn’t even have any good gags. Ben was great, but they wasted Mads. The rest of the cast are awful. The best scene in the film is a last minute insert that has nothing to do with the plot.

    Metro Redux Ps4 Xbone

    Never did finish the second one of these, it’s been sat on my Xbox hard drive for years waiting for me to return. I thought they were both excellent, as a huge fan of the original STALKER who never had good enough PC for either of the sequels, the Metro series successfully scratched that itch for me on console. I just wish the monster designs were more effective, STALKER was legitimately terrifying in places whereas the Metro games have never really gone beyond ‘tense’.

    Oh wow, I genuinely almost bought the premium pass for £40 on Sunday. Looks amazing with the One X patch, too.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    I don't know what it is about Tomb Raider but the threads for all three have been absolute cluster-fucks. Also for years after losing the elites in Halo the prevailing notion around these parts was that you should never let your game design be hemmed-in by a plot nobody cares about, but for this particular series people just can't let it go.
  12. For what it’s worth I heard the exact same thing from a writer I know weeks ago, long before it was in the papers. He framed it as Craig hating the character of Bond and wanting to see him killed off, though. If they genuinely are considering Idris Elba (not convinced, personally) then I could see them doing it.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    I actually thought the first game had a solid story but with weak characterisation, whereas the second one was poor on both counts. I still completed them both twice, and that is an absolute rarity for me. If the quality of the world, setpieces and puzzles is of a similar standard to the previous titles then I personally don’t think it matters that much. If the third act twist ends up being yet another macguffin that has kept an army of Inca warriors alive for the past thousand years I’m going to die laughing.

    Battlefield V - November 20th

    Destiny is a funny one, because the original obviously wasn’t the game Bungie wanted to make, and it’s also not the game a lot of Halo fans (myself included) wanted to play, but almost by fluke it was something that a lot of people did latch onto. It seems like they made a sequel that tried to address a lot of the criticisms people like me made about the original, such as what a tedious grind they found it, but in reality people like me weren’t the ones who were excited about more Destiny in the first place. I didn’t buy Destiny 2, but through account sharing I have played it. For what it’s worth I found it just as boring as the first.

    Battlefield V - November 20th

    Not sure why you’ve quoted that, it was in specific response to grindmouse phrasing his posts in a way that implied that everyone agreed that his very specific issues with the beta, when obviously lots of people don’t.
