    I thought it was Shadow of the Beast. Very much the Rise of the Robots of it's day. 


    Sacrilege. I still get a lot of enjoyment from playing SOTB. It's always been a solid action scroller imo, wrapped up in phenomenal atmosphere, graphics and music.
     

    Over the years it's become fashionable to knock unfortunately but I love it, dodgy collision detection and all!

    I can't imagine Lynch has any interest in 40k whatsoever haha.

     

    Money is a wonderous thing..! Actually, I can see him being interested in it. It's such a fertile playground that he could go bananas, make something that interested him, while still keeping within GW's playbook. If I was GW/Cavill I'd give it a shot! :)

     

    What I'm going to find fascinating is the whole GW/Amazon/Cavill dynamic. You're talking about famously strict demanding people being involved. In Cavill's case it's gossipy but I'm willing to believe it. In GW's case they'll protect their IP with an iron fist/saw!

  3. Was this sold by any other stores in the UK other than Amazon? I know it said Amazon exclusive on their page but I would have thought other stores were still getting stock? Smyths? Shopto?

     

    If not I wonder if more people are aware now (as in Im sure this is happening with many other goods) how Amazon's long fabled monopoly may finally be visible for most people?

    sounds like he's been doing it for years though. The 'hard yards' he did for free for ages with great popularity, decided to do a Patreon to make a living out of it and learned the hard lesson that people are happy to consume for free, not so happy when money is involved.

     

    Nail on the head there, imo. Once that pandoras box was opened etc etc.

  5. Haven't played in so long that I've forgotten about dodo codes. Sister in law wants to know how to get one for her kids. I'm pretty sure you need online membership don't you? Which she doesn't have. There's no local play way for her kids to swap with friends is there? Does anyone know?

  6. This subject is right up my alley and something I rage about a lot. However, although I agree that rising prices are here to stay, one thing is very clear, at least imo. That is, that there are a LOT of speculators moving into video games who are actively trying to influence the market. By that I mean, there are sellers purposely buying up games with the express intention to then re auction them for vastly inflated prices. And by inflated I mean 5x to 6x or more the 'actual' real world price. I won't name them but if you frequent eBay a lot you'll know the ones I mean. Some people will say, well what's the 'actual' price anyway? To which I'd answer, the real price is an auction, simple as that. But what these speculators are doing are offering 'just over' amounts to grab items and effectively take them off the market. I'm sure of it. The effect then is that people doing a quick check of X game's worth see the stupid price it's going for in bins and assume that that is now the market price! Anyway, it's fucking despicable and ruining the hobby. Sorry for the rant!:wacko:

  7. The original is a solid gold feel good classic imo. Just everything about it is perfection, right up to its endless rewatchability.

    I find the second, while not as good, still very very watchable. Eddie is still in fine form, it oozes the era, the script rattles along and Scott adds his trademark panache. Plus the Ferrari is gorgeous.

    The third is just straight up rubbish. I'd still love a detailed book about its production.

    Who knows what will happen with this new one...

    Rendezvous with Rama? Denis Villeneuve is set to direct it after Dune Part 2.


    Yep I know. I have faith in Villeneuve but I'm still approaching it with trepidation!

    It just one of those big idea books which really needs everyone to go all in on. Wish Kubrick was around to do it.

    Neil Gaiman is a hack*

    Only joking, if he likes it that's probably a good sign.

     

    *I read The Chronicles of Amber relatively recently and had to conclude he ripped off loads of it for The Sandman comics :lol:

     


    The Amber series are the greatest unfilmed books along with Rama, for me. G Martin has long said he's surprised no one has tackled them. Likely because of the cost. You'd need a studio to go all in like new line did with lotr I'd imagine. And those days are long gone.

  10. I need to play rr3D again on my n3ds after playing it to exhaustion on my original model. The rock solid 3d of the n3ds would be a revelation. Come to think of it, Kid Icarus would be amazing too, but I can't face fighting the controls again as a leftie!

     

    Wish XL prices would settle down a bit but they are just going to keep on soaring aren't they..
