    Wonka

    I can imagine some value here - Willy Wonka does just throw up question after question of you try and logic it out. A series would be better though; detailing the harsh business dealings, creative challenges and adventures that Wonka had to experience in order to create the Chocolate factory.
  2. I really struggled with a few of the SMB1 levels that I used to fly-through on the GC - had to give up on Choice and just take the easy route - where previously I used to get the end tightrope fairly consistently.

    Squid Game

    It's not on UK but honestly they're a world apart. It's not a terrible movie but it's not great either. It's definitely worth investing the time into the series!

    Squid Game

    Enjoyed this a lot, the games had strategy and it got me invested in a lot of the characters. Guessed a lot of the over-arching twists and storyline - but that's honestly a good thing as it means it laid those breadcrumbs out. Anyway if you like this I strongly suggest watching Kaiji - incredibly similar premise (to the point where I wouldn't have been surprised if this was an adaption) and it's absolutely fantastic! There's even a quirky little spin-off series showing the struggles of the people who run the games trying to appease their bloodthirsty boss. https://www.crunchyroll.com/en-gb/kaiji Edit: (Start with ultimate survivor - it's probably not clear if you don't know but that's season 1)
  5. Rick and Morty *is* meta - It's a absurdist take on Science Fiction. It's a massive part of the show. I think the issue is actually that they don't build to it; it's quite easy to overlook when it's handed to you. Enjoyed the ending - didn't need to be a two parter and I thought the final scene should have blown away the budget with pshycedelic imagery but instead felt a little flat.

  7. This looks low budget but Gameplay wise - a complete evolution of Smash. I am so looking forward to it!
  8. So this is something I've meaning to get my hands on for while. It's already out and it's almost full positive on Steam.

    Anime

    Been recommending it for years, didn't know it was on Amazon, cheers!

    Anime

    It looks so damn good! My life is now on hold until December. Ora-Ora-Orange is the new FABULOUS, surely?
  11. Just clicked why a lot of the DLC characters don't tend to excite me enough to play them - it's just not a stretch to imagine them in a fighting game.
  12. Can we still say bummed in the gob? Any gender can bum any other gender in the gob as long as they have a bum!

    Anime

    So episodes like 104 are why I sometimes hate MHA - just absolutely no point in the whole episode. I thought there was going to be a really interesting moment at the end but they copped out.
  14. Genuinely looks ace and comes from the Devs who did Slap City which was a lot of fun. Rumors Ren and Stimpy may be in it. This might actually be a Smash-beater! Releases this fall.
  15. So is this like Animal Farm except a dumb fascist pig is in control?
  16. 3 was weak, 4 was decent - the rest have been amazing IMO. Really enjoyed this week, very fun and I look forward to seeing where this all goes! Also: Sylvie has stole my heart. It's rare I get a crush on a fictional character so the show must be doing something right!
  17. Dwarf Fortress, Shenmue, Paper's Please.
  18. They got rid of USB port to fit it in so it's almost a downgrade if anything.
  19. Which is the main reason I was looking forward to an updated Switch, that and enhanced Wifi/Bluetooth capabilities... It's like they've fixed everything that didn't need fixing.
  20. Gameplay looks ace in that trailer.

    Anime

    I can recommend One Pace if any of you are interested in One Piece but don't like the idea of filler (well episodes interspersed with filler scenes to bulk it out). There's one small scene so far that they cut that I liked but otherwise it's an amazing effort.
  22. I think the banana collecting effects are bit distracting and the rotation sounds aren't changing in pitch or quite as frequent - almost seem random; it doesn't signify the momentum you're building up. Honestly - watching them side by side it's mental how much of a downgrade the audio is. Hopefully this is an early build.
