  1. I'd love to be the bringer of that news, believe me.
  2. Wasn't too impressed by it either. Hope it plays well, but we live in a DMC 5 world now and the difference between the two is staggering.
  3. Saw the Japanese leak and yeah, I'm definitely staying up for that.
  4. As someone who dislikes how small SW often feels and how prone it is to nostalgia baiting (yes, I adore TLJ) this feels like a series for me, especially after reading this piece. https://www.polygon.com/star-wars/22687640/star-wars-visions-review-anime-disney-plus Will dive in tonight.
  5. I don't think there is a dedicated GotG thread and I can't be arsed to make one, but Ben was really impressed by it, to his own surprise.
  6. You should really play Returnal, probably the best and most atmospheric sci-fi sound design out there. But yeah, really looking forward to Dread as well. I just hope the level design is up to scratch because everything I've seen so far is incredibly my jam as a sci-fi and classic Metroid fan. Out of all the remaining games for this year, this is easily the one I want to play the most.
  7. Third biome is my favourite. The scale and art direction are stunning. Also, 100 pages!
  8. Dune (2021) As someone who's not familiar with the books, I was gripped by the worldbuilding, visual splendour, scale and characters. It's a gorgeous, well-acted movie with some topical themes. Chalamet and Ferguson are particularly good and Momoa is a crowd pleaser. It's a slow movie with only a few set pieces but I was never bored. In fact, I keep thinking about this movie and definitely want to see it again. Main gripes: it's very much the first part of a bigger story, but with part 2 not officialy confirmed, it would be rather unfulfilling if it ends here. The main villain is fairly one-note, at least in part 1 of the story. Zimmer's score is good but not as good as his best work for Nolan. And this one's a personal preference but I tend to prefer my sci-fi a bit harder and less mystical. Still, go see it on the biggest screen you can find. 4/5
  9. https://deadline.com/2021/09/dune-opening-weekend-shang-chi-global-international-box-office-1234839288/ Dune is doing really well internationally.
  10. Saw it on Wednesday. I'm not familiar with the book and I prefer my science fiction a bit harder and less mystical, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit. Probably gonna watch it a second time. It's definitely made for the big screen and a massive sound system, as the sets are lavish, the vistas sweeping and the worms... well, huge. Soundtrack is loud but the mix is great, I had no problems with understanding the dialogue. This is definitely Chalamet's and Ferguson's movie, but I also really enjoyed Momoa and Sharon Duncan-Brewster. All the performances are good really. The only real problem with the movie is that it ends in a similar manner to Fellowship of the Ring but in this case a part 2 still hasn't been officially confirmed. At least it seems to be doing well in the countries it opened in, many showings here in the Netherlands were sold out.
  11. Metroid Dread. That's pretty much it. 2022 is where it's at for me.
  12. Cool blog post and video about Returnal's even cooler tech. https://blog.playstation.com/2021/09/16/from-resogun-to-returnal-the-evolving-vfx-magic-that-brought-atropos-to-life/amp/?__twitter_impression=true (don't watch if you're new to the game)
  13. Article has a bit more info.
  14. Shows quite a bit of footage, so don't watch if you want to go in blind.
  15. Am I the only one who thinks this looks super cool? New IP that looks deliciously weird with magical martial arts, crazy art direction and enemies trying to dropkick you.
  16. I do think people tend to forget that the last 1,5 years have been really diverse for Sony. They published Dreams, The Last of Us 2, Ghost of Tsuhima, Astro Bot, Sackboy, Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, Destruction AllStars, MLB, Returnal and Ratchet & Clank. Tell that to Insomniac. People should cut developer some slack. COVID has shuffled a lot release plans.
  17. Ah, I thought your post meant that Bloodlines 2 was turned into this. It's still coming, but probably a right old mess.
  18. Bloodlines 2 is a different game. This is Bloodhunt. Not that you should have too much confidence in Bloodlines after key people were fired from the project (including Brian Mitsoda) and the whole Avellone mess, but still.
  19. Venom is voiced by Tony Todd. Pretty cool.
  20. Insomniac were a bit of a steal for Sony weren't they? These guys are putting in work. Interesting writing bits: Wolverine is written by Walt Williams (Spec Ops: The Line) and Forspoken (co-written) by Amy Henning (Legacy of Kain, Uncharted).
