  1. Best platformer since Rayman 2 and Mirror's Edge.
  2. Game of the Year A1. Cyberpunk 2077 A2. Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics A3. Hades A4. Mr. Driller Drill Land A5. Streets of Rage 4 Biggest Disappointment of the Year Z1. Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics — Instead of the best game, Go, which I was expecting, this includes a connect four variant, Gomoku. All the poets and all the hyperbolic whiners could never dream of a greater contrast.
  3. Thanks. Since compulsively reading this thread today, I'm in. Fifty for the game, controller, and doodad proved irresistible. Just after signing on to Stadia, I learned of GeForce Now. It's difficult to imagine how it could compete with the current promotions.
  4. Sunshine is twitchy like a Ferrari. World class control, handling, and extreme speed is not for everyone, I get that. Which is why, for the vast majority, a Corolla or Galaxy is preferable. That said, playing Sunshine with a joycon is like playing Ferrari F355 Challenge with a keyboard.
  5. I highly recommend Dan Deacon. A few weeks ago he was my personal highlight of Bonnaroo– the best of the best. It's great crazy trippy dance music that's complex and original and fun. I can't stop listening to it. If someone knows how to embed video in the forum I hope they do it for the above link. My other recommendation is Quintron and Miss Pussycat, the brilliant New Orleans dance organist and also famed inventor of the Drum Buddy.

    Watchmen

    I didn't know Gilliam was even considered for the project until this morning. It's a shame the powers in Hollywood are too shrewd to entrust Terry with 150 million. Gates of Eden would have been better, more apropos opener than The Times They Are A-Changin.'

    Watchmen

    If Blader Runne was remade in the flat, digitized, sterile style of the new Star Wars films it would fail. Compare the look of Watchmen to Taxi Driver, another film that imagines a realistic do-gooder (i.e. lunatic), and the silliness of Synder's approach for Watchmen is obvious. Better yet, imagine Taxi Driver filmed by Synder, with his adolescent obsessions with testosterone and condescending slo-mo, shot on a sound stage and green screen instead of the streets of New York – it would stink. Gibbon's art was worlds away from the blocky Kirby inspired comic book art of the time. Instead of u

    Watchmen

    I knew it was going to be a bad film during the first scene. The pretext of the comic is an imagining of costumed heros not in an overly fictionalized, stylized or simplified world like the DC or Marvel universes, but in the contradictory, morally uncertain world of our reality. Thus the decision to have look of the picture be of a sterilized, plastic set was a colossal fuck up. Manhattan was a shit hole during the 80's, but in Watchmen it looks like a set for West Side Story 2000 or just Metropolis from any Superman flick with a few hookers. The only enjoyable part was the opening credits. No
  9. He finally got around to reviewing No More Heroes.
  10. A heart warming conclusion. I was worried rllmuk had turned into GameFAQs.
  11. I was just about to write the best bet is the proverbial flip of Chigurh's coin. So while I'm not bad at F-Zero GX, I suspect the bastard would snake. Mario Kart: Double Dash and pray for a blue shell.
  12. So far (purchased last night), it's my favorite game since Super Mario Bros. 3.
  13. Couldn't agree more. That and the horrible box art, which isn't entirely atrocious, it's just the damn type treatment of Zakk and Wiki. They make it look like a lame pirate themed educational title for the pc. The treasure chest in the right corner is inspired design if they were trying for tacky, ugly. It's a shame because it's an amazing game. I bought it last night and for the two hours I played smiled ear to ear.
  14. In thirty to forty years Sunshine will universally be regarded as a better, less glitchy game than Mario64. While Mario64 will eventually be seen as the litany of video game clichés it is, Sunshine's originality will be lauded. Yoshi's Island was never a "true" mario game. But honestly, the real mario, the one that matters, the one that isn't found in any dictionary, the one you recognize in your heart, that mario is all about fun. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island > Super Mario World Super Mario Sunshine > Mario64
  15. Radiohead must have realized, by naming a song "Nude" with the opening lines being, "don't get any big ideas, it's not going to happen," it could be interpreted as being about erectile dysfunction. Add this to one of radiohead's funny/depressing songs, alongside "punch up at the wedding," and "myximotosis." To paraphrase that line from High Fidelity, "do I like radiohead because I take paxil, or do I take paxil because I like radiohead."
