  1. Well, if he gets confused again and thinks it's Ivan Reitman directing there might be a chance? https://www.businessinsider.com/bill-murray-voiced-garfield-because-he-thought-director-was-joel-coen-2014-1?r=US&IR=T
  2. I once cut a promo for this absolute belter, titled Jew on Bikes.

    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (2019)

    I paid £40 for Donkey Kong last year, a game I've never played before that originally came out in 2014. It's one of the best games I've ever played and I got hours out of it and have been sending it around to all my friends who'll play it. Do I feel short changed for paying that for a 4 year old game? Not remotely. I find it completely bizarre people complaining that Nintendo are rereleasing old games spruced up for the Switch. If you don't want them, vote with your wallet. They're not for the people that bought a WiiU. This package, with Luigi U included as well, represents better value at £40 than the WiiU game did when it came out. It's also obviously portable, which is a huge bonus when you have a commute like I do. And I never owned a WiiU so it's a totally new experience for me. I'm more than happy to pay top dollar for good games. I've not played them before, what difference does it make that they came out 6 years ago? I get people feeling a bit ripped off if they've played them before but for those of us that haven't £40 still represents good value for fantastic Nintendo games.
  5. Yeah the game doesn't really explain it but it's all about pulling towards you on the left stick every so often to pull the fish in.

    Xbox One X

    Why not just ask the people who are repairing it?
  8. Game of the Year A1. Red Dead Redemption 2 (Xbox) The game of the generation for me. The world is a simply incredible place to exist in, I'm still not that near the end 91 hours in. It's breathtaking the way the environment and the systems work together to create something that, certainly for the first 20 odd hours, feels so far ahead of anything we've had before. Once the systems have revealed themselves a bit more it settles into a groove and isn't quite as "oh my GOD" fantastic but then the story and the characters take you through the rest of what is a genuinely epic adventure. It reminds me of Mass Effect 2, my favourite game of all time, in all the best ways. It gives you a diverse and interesting cast of characters and just lets you chat. You're genuinely excited to hear what Pearson thinks about X, or how Micah will react to Y. Even more impressive than ME2 is the way these characters interact with each other. As gamers we're so used to being the driving force behind all of the narrative in everything we play, but in this you catch snippets of character moments that don't even really concern Arthur. It's genuinely inventive and the mind boggles at how much work it must have taken to get it all working in the way that it does. More of that in my disappointments I guess... That aside it's my game of the year. It's my game of the generation and once I've finished it and the dust settles I can decide if it's troubling the great Mass Effect 2 as my top pick of all time. A2. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Switch) The best 2D platformer since Mario World, possibly even better than that Opus. People balked at the fact it was a port and it cost £40 but I'd have never played it had it stayed on WiiU and got more than my money's worth for it. A3. Forza Horizon 4 (Xbox) Some of the most fun I've had online this year, paired with a fantastic driving engine. They Destiny-ed Forza and made the best one yet. A4. Sea of Thieves (Xbox) Derided at launch by people who I feel kind of missed the point of it. Relaxing when it wants to be, tense and exciting when it needs to, it's given me some of the most memorable gaming moments of the year. The ghost ship fight in particular. Superb with mates. A5. God of War (PS4) A fantastic, surprising story, brilliantly told. It maybe ever so slightly outstayed its welcome, but it's a brilliant package overall. Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. Rockstar's Working Conditions Z2. David Cage. Z3. Z4. Z5. Sound Design of the Year S1. Red Dead Redemption 2 S2. Astro Bot S3. Sea of Thieves Visual Design of the Year V1. Red Dead Redemption 2 V2. Forza Horizon 4 V3. Sea of Thieves Writing of the Year W1. Red Dead Redemption 2 W2. God of War W3. Celeste Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. Xbox One X Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Rockstar Best Supported Game (released pre 2018) of the Year B1. Halo: The Masterchief Collection for all that 4k goodness. Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2017 or earlier) X1. Hollow Knight Best game character of the year C1. Arthur Morgan C2. Kratos C3. GAVIN!?!?

    Bros: After the screaming stops

    I was born in 1989 and had heard of Bros. No idea they'd sung When Will I Be Famous but I guess through Hellboy/Blade I knew Luke Goss and I knew he was in Bross.

    Luther...BBC1 tonight.

    Not seen tonight’s but thought the first was definitely back on form. A really creepy killer, some great twists and turns and some fantastically naff dialogue. Exactly what I want from my Luther. No other show like it.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    The Force Awakens is a great movie! A great Star Wars movie too. I completely agree with you on that. However. If you're talking about TFA being great and wanting to avoid "that discussion" maybe drop all of the tiresome "oh woe is me they've ruined my Star Wars" TLJ bullshit that's flooded every single chat about every Star Wars based morsel of information on the internet since 14th December 2017. We get it. You didn't like Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There was Star Wars before it and there'll be Star Wars after it. Grow up.

    Oh, grow up.
  13. Yeah I'm on exactly the same section at the moment. No idea who she is.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Anyone got a half decent basics video for this? I enjoying world of light but have gotten to the point where I don’t really feel like my game’s getting any better.
  15. Might want to spoiler tag that last bit @christaylor
