  1. SotE at least had a diversity of gameplay with the 3d shooting/platform levels, swoop bike stuff and space battles. Maybe not all that great in retrospect, but in 1996 felt like a playable version of the pre prequels star wars I had grown up watching on video, opening text crawl and all.
  2. This is pretty solid. Deflecting stormtroopers' blasts back at them feels cool. I've only done the first two planets but definitely looking forward to unlocking some more powers & moves. I got some real n64 Shadows Of The Empire vibes on the opening high speed train level.
  3. I really enjoyed it. Strontium Dog vibes for sure. Loved Werner Herzog & the disheveled storm troopers.
  4. I read somewhere episode 2 comes out friday?
  5. I've actually been replaying San Andreas for this very reason and as impressive as that texture mod looks, it loses the saturated, summer heat aesthetic SA dressed itself up in to hide the limitations of the ps2 hardware. It's still an incredibly atmospheric achievement 15 years on.
  6. It's actually a pretty decent show. Sorry, Alan
  7. Anna Smith Spark's The Court Of Broken Knives is very enjoyable. It's set in a vaguely medieval China-ish type fantasy setting rather than a medieval western Europe analog. Some nice worldbuilding going on, good characters. I enjoyed the heck out of it. If you like Abercrombie you'd probably get a fair bit out of it.

    Battlefield V

    Does look good. I actually uninstalled and went back to BF1 a few months ago though. Will definitely reinstall to check it out.
  9. I thought it pretty brave they've gone for a sequel to the comic rather than the film. The majority of people are familiar with the film over the comic and in recent years I've definitely noticed lots of praise for the film by geeks on social media and the like. There is definitely a cult appreciation for the film, as much as I disliked it. I think the drip feeding of world building information through references to news and politics in the first episode was fully in line with the source material. But I think the danger is, a lot of people like yourself won't enjoy it as much and it won't be particularly popular. Of course all of this could have been avoided if Snyder had just used the fucking squid. He obviously wasn't that visionary after all was he.
  10. You fakers obviously haven't read Kieron Gillen's Space Friends #17, where the eponymous group attend Finn's stag on Corellia and a death stick addled Threepio's face gets sat on by a succession of scantily clad twi'leks
  11. This has been delayed to 'later in 2020'. Maybe not such a bad thing? Original release date was a little bit close to Cyberpunk for my tastes.
  12. It was certainly an interesting watch. I can't help but be heartened by the fact But at the same time, I just think... why? Why are they doing a sequel to Watchmen? And that's exactly what it is for all of Lindelof insisting it's a 'remix' or a 'reimagining'. It's a sequel to something that didn't really need one. There's still something deeply sacrilegious about some dude penning a sequel to Watchmen that I can't fully get over.
  13. Isn't it because of the pronunciation? A hard boiled New York copper would probably pronounce it differently to the privately educated Ozymandias (who was presumably making the call. I'm not sure. Maybe he delegated the making of anonymous phone calls)?

    Disco Elysium

    I bought, downloaded and played like first 5 minutes. There was some kind of reel to reel tape machine in first room you wake up in. 10/10 SM47 GOTY 2019

    Disco Elysium

    I am intending to buy it in a day or two. I don't think there's a tactical turn based combat component to the game a la the oridge Fallouts or the infinity engines.
