  1. I can’t make head or tail of what they all are. The front page of Resetera felt like every other thread was about a different AC game. An AC set in Baghdad with a tosser from Valhalla An AC set in a Japan. An AC set during the Salem witch trials. A new AC multiplayer game in the style of the ones that came with the Ezio games. AC Infinity which is some kind of AC as GaaS dealio (all the recent ACs have had GaaS stuff up the wazoo so I’m not sure of the difference). Is that right?
  2. I post far less in Film & TV than I used to as it seems like every thread is the same people scouring YouTube and Twitter to be the first ones to post tweets and videos with thumbnails of a bearded man looking outraged to go LOOK AT THIS. I never watch the videos as why on Earth would I want to watch 45 minutes of what Nazis think and have the algorithm decide I really want to know xXx~WhiteGOKU~xXx's views about black elves and fill up my YouTube front screen with them. I already know what they'll think and that I'll vehemently disagree with it. I get the impression some are more excited about those coming out than the show itself. It's almost impossible to just discuss media on its own merits anymore amongst the sheer amount of culture war noise in almost every thread. Depressingly, I know that we live in a time Incel Chuds are going to hate anything that has a woman or a person who isn't lilly white in a prominent role. I'm not a fan of megathreads, but we could almost do with one to discuss how the alt-right hate almost everything. As Benny said these posts just act as signal boosting the venom, even though it’s not their intention.
  3. I'm not entirely certain what I think yet, but something I did like is how earnest and it was and that it took all the high fantasy seriously. I am so over Disney style winking at the audience constantly, I really don't need Elrond turning around and going 'Well that just happened' after some spectacle.
  4. I think this is either the second quarter or third. There's more after this I believe.
  5. The King Nice But Dim plotline feels like a rehash of Robb Stark’s misadventures.

    Out of interest what did you think of Telling Lies? That was getting high scores all over the shop but I found it like watching paint dry. There was only so much of Pound Shop Tom Hardy over-emoting during dead air that I could take.
  7. The comics industry has dismal figures and Marvel/DC are kept on life support by their mother corporations as they serve as an IP factory for other media.
  8. Can’t see me bothering to re-up when my upgrade runs out after Christmas.
  9. If they’re not based on FOMO and hitting deadlines then they’re fine, one of the few things Halo Infinite multiplayer managed to get right. But 99% of them just make games start to feel like a second job to me.
  10. Can we get back to talking about the film instead of arguing with Kerra… Turino.
  11. I always find that Alan Sepinwall is a decent critic whose tastes tend to align with mine. He's pretty lukewarm on it. https://www.rollingstone.com/tv-movies/tv-movie-reviews/house-of-the-dragon-review-1398441/ I'll be interested in how this does. Apparently this has a ludicrously big marketing spend. Anecdotal evidence is worthless, but in terms of TV talk beyond forums like this one I don't think I've heard one person mention this in the office despite loads of people I work with being super into GoT at the time.
  12. I wouldn’t count on it going by the interviews he’s giving at the moment.
  13. Weirdly EA seem to be the one that hasn’t had rafts of horrific stories about sexual abuse yet. The days when we thought loot boxes were the worst the big publishers were up to seem like halcyon days now.
  14. I saw a tweet earlier from a black comedian saying that ultimately despite how many layers of playing a character or knowing transgression or don’t worry he’s a misanthrope who offends everyone equally you drape it under, ultimately it still boils down to arguing that a white man should be allowed to use racial slurs.
  15. Larry being so strung out the morning after binging loads of drugs that he can’t catch up to small child slowly waddling away makes a lot more sense than the show’s version.
  16. Maximum Overdrive x Doc Hollywood = Pixar's Cars
  17. People don't want to subscribe to dozens of different streaming services, who'd have think it. https://variety.com/2022/biz/news/peacock-loss-2021-more-doubled-1235164939/
  18. After I got over the Dear Deidre presentation style, I was enjoying As Dusk Falls, but it’s like you can feel the budget ebbing away by the second in Book 2. Way less interactivity and difficult choices. I thought was at about the 2/3 mark of the game and then it ended really abruptly. I just assumed there'd be a book 3 or at least one in the near future. But reading the web, nothing at all has been announced so that really was it or the off chance of a sequel way down the line. As much as I enjoyed the first half, overall I found it a pretty unsatisfying experience.
