    The reactions at the event seem nuts

    Your shameful gaming secrets

    Did a big shocked inhale for this one, not gonna lie.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    This thread is weird, the reception around the web seems to be a bit mixed, but you've got these incredibly defensive posts in here attacking every criticism as if it's a personal insult. And they're from the same people who are writing big flowery "ooh, my nostalgia" posts, wonder if there's a connection there.
  5. I'm sure a comedy film where all the cast hate each other and are just phoning it in for the money will be an absolute laugh riot.

    Apparently they pulled some of the dances due to Fortnite getting sued.
  7. So have I got any other converts for my "this nostalgia pandering is getting a bit much" stance? Because this seems like the worst example yet.

    The Division 2

    The singleplayer missions are pretty lavish and all take place in unique interior locations, but they're just "kill a bunch of dudes and a boss" mechanically and there's not a lot of driving plot beyond "evil group are doing something, stop them". So now I've written out, I guess I'm saying that it's kind of like Destiny.

    The Division 2

    Yeah, I played through early in '18 and the difficulty curve was kinda odd - as you get towards max level it gets punishingly, frustratingly hard and then once you hit max level it gets super easy with you soloing whole squads of elites. I think I'd have had an entirely different opinion of the game if I'd have dropped it before then. I never found the intro that hard though, although I did die on top of the police station a few times.
  11. I do think a problem with this license in particular is there's not a lot to play with, there's what, one Jedi and one Sith - kind of the core Star Wars thing - in the universe at the moment. Disney tried to go in doing a proper crossmedia thing with films, TV, games and books and no idea where it'd all go. Four years later they've had to pause their own TV series because it was going to clash with the direction of the Last Jedi, and the books have had to all be set in the prequels now to avoid that scenario, there haven't been any story focused games set in the new era, and they've had to reduce how many films they make. That reads as a failure to me. You can see the frequent changes of direction internally where there's bits in BF2 that were setting up some backstory for Snoke that got scrapped - imagine working on a three or four year game where every decision has to go through Disney for authorisation to fit with their world, but their world is constantly changing direction on a whim because no one thought to plan anything out to begin with.

    Spider-Man: Far from Home (Homecoming sequel)

    That kind of gives everything away, like a regular Sony Pictures trailer.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Yep, the ones in the base game seem a lot harder than in the DLC, and in FH3, I think - partly that you have to be on the road now rather than "just between the flags". That Hoonigan RS200 is fantastic though.

    That Virtual Hydlide run is hilarious, what a terrible game.
  15. I think the problem with examples like the Marvel Netflix shows is that they're boring, they'd be boring if they were 10 episodes, or boring if they were 20. If something isn't keeping your interest then there are bigger problems there. I think length and quality aren't related in a manner where you can pull on one and increase the other, I'd happily take a 5-hour Villeneuve remake of a film if I found the source material interesting, but I'm not going to shit through some shit just because "it's only 90 minutes!"
