  1. As soon as that music comes in.. whoosh! Damn the nostalgia is strong. All in!
  2. I watched Prometheus a few times and that was a few too many, as far as I'm concerned. The downright stupidity of the characters, the depiction of exploration and the major beats of the movie, destroy any of the praise worthy stuff on show, imo.
  3. The deepfake stuff is really impressive now, isn't it. I kinda want a re release of Tron Legacy with it.
  4. I feel like the psychological effects of retro games is rarely mentioned but one which must surely chime with many. I get the same calming feeling when I look at my collection. And that's before checking out the boxes, going through manuals, leafing through magazines. Let alone playing the games themselves! It's obviously that connection to the past but there's something grounding about it. Physically being able to hold and puruse the objects, that has a deep effect on the mind, or my mind at least.
  5. 4K is a race to wasted potential and creativity, imo. Long may (and will) Nintendo rebuff the cries from the tiny minority of their players who feel like it will magically justify a new gaming system. DLSS offers a gentle path for Nintendo to support a form of 4K in the future, likely the Switch 2.
  6. They could have thrown me the money that that trailer cost to put together and I've have given them a proper new Contra.. or at the very least the first level of one!
  7. Thanks for the heads up on this, I'd not heard about it at all. Ordered a copy. Weird it's not mentioned on the foundations website anywhere. That I could see at least.
  8. This does indeed look absolutely lovely. I can't believe it's tech and art style haven't been influenced by The Last Night tho. That's not a problem btw, just an observation. Hopefully the gameplay can match the visuals.
  9. That's pretty great casting. Looking at that photo you can see where they're going. It's in the eyes and jawline. Stick some glasses on him and the wig and I think he'll look remarkable. Similar setup to Gillian when she was cast.
  10. They've seen sense, ie that they're leaving a lot of money on the table, and are canvassing for interest in another run of the CE. https://huntdown.com/physical/?fbclid=IwAR14idfT5GnrstC-wn7clKYNLG-lKFK21WHGStR-AY_e9QycB7mdRZKK5FI If you're interested in it please sign up! Personally I think it's the best CE I've seen, well, ever really. And absolutely worth the money if you can stretch to it and love physical.
  11. It does seem unusual doesn't it, given Nintendo's track record. Having said that, perhaps Mario's gw release has enabled Nintendo to calculate demand more accurately this time around? Meaning that the Zelda gw won't still be available for as long after its release and hence end up being available so cheaply.
  12. That's my issue with the CE release too. By creating so few copies the release just becomes a collectors investment. I read somewhere that copies are already up on eBay for 250 euro... Regarding it's price, I actually feel it's extremely generous, especially when you see the likes of Nintendo's Metroid Dread SE. You get a hell of a lot and you can see the love and passion that's been put into it. All of which makes the small print run even more baffling. They've done all that just for it to disappear into the hands of many non fans. A print run 3 times as big would have still sold out and all their hard work would have paid off financially and artistically, imo. It's a brilliant game btw. If you can snag it at discount it's worth it (That's my highest praise, since I only buy physical!) before the standard edition becomes available. I really hope they've made enough copies of those..!
