    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    Odd considering the film they're using.

    Shopto had some the other day.

    Let us celebrate Edge's 25th Anniversary

    I remember driving 40 miles to an indie shop to pick up a Jaguar with a mate, he was frothing at the mouth about an upcoming Alien game. I also remember flicking through Edge and seeing the score for said game and him asking what it got. It was like an early dress rehearsal for the monthly Edge thread here after he realised I wasn't joking about the score. It was like someone had sold him a pair of pre-shat boxer shorts. Tempest and Doom sweetened he bitter pill for him, though.

    IGN writer busted copying other people's reviews

    This also highlights for people how much TV game reviews might as well be put together from fridge magnets of a small number of well-used cliches.

    Your unearthed gems

    I think Happiness goes for 'laughs' more than Storytelling but it has some fantastic scenes and lines.

    Your unearthed gems

    Happiness and Storytelling are great black comedies from Todd Solondz.

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    It did $51 million globally on Friday.
  9. I think the Force Awakens is better than the prequels and Last Jedi started to gravitate back towards them. I'd put it about on par with TPM, which I think, on balance, is the best of the prequels.

    Silver & Black - Spider-Man spin-off

    I don't know, Goose. That sounds alright compared to another bloody Spiderman film.

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    The director has said that it was a lot gorier and an R rated version had been shot until the studio decided on PG 13. He said the filmed gore scenes needed a lot of cg to finish up so that version will never be released. Even Statham seems to be a bit more pro gore in recent interviews.

    PlayStation VR

    Looked at some reviews and haven't heard a bad thing about it. Shop to currently selling it for £17.68 for a physical copy. Ordered it around 4pm yesterday and it's already here.

    Star Wars TV series

    Mace has survived and has taken to cooking up death sticks to make ends meet - Breaking Windu. Spin off: Better call Maul.
  14. It's an interesting discussion. Got me thinking about a hypothetical of John Williams being outed for X,Y or Z on the eve of the next Star Wars movie coming out - what would the impact be to his legacy? Would it sour the enjoyment of the films he's scored?
  15. Sugiyama won't be going anywhere. Along with Hori and Toriyama, he is Dragon Quest. The PR release from Square is their polite way of saying "We've heard the criticism". The fact of the matter is that many high profile people have suspect or plainly wrong views on things, and Sugiyama's views have been known for years and the games have sold like hot cakes in Japan. Dropping him because Westerners don't agree with his views isn't on the cards. I adore Dragon Quest games even though I find his views abhorrent. I also still watch Roman Polanski films and saw Hacksaw Ridge at the cinema but I wouldn't cross a room to shake hands with any of them.
