  1. It is a bit of a cringe fest, wrote about this in the other thread but it's essentially this throughout... Tom Cruise "I'm going to jump over this gap..." Random 1 "You can't jump over the gap, it's not possible! Don't be silly Tom, go home." Tom Cruise looks at gap, Random 2 (slow pan on amazed face) "He's not...he's not going to..." Tom Cruise jumps over gap Random 3 "I can't believe Tom just jumped over the gap!! How incredible is Tom?!!" followed by uplifting music It's that over and over for 2 hours.
  2. Using this thing for the second year in the row, I love the idea of a reusable calendar where I can dictate what goes in it but it's problematic as a couples calendar as the draws don't hold two of certain chocs. As we discovered this year with our 'fillers' of Lindt and Ferrero chocs. Can't fit 2 of those in a draw.
  3. Top Gun Maverick It’s an entertaining, well made film but I personally found it a cringe fest. Most of the movie is basically this: Character 1 “it’s impossible to go past the red line. Tom Cruise do not even THINK about going past the red line because it’s just not feasible ok?” Tom Cruise “Look at me! I’m going past the red line lol” Character 2 “OMG he is GOING PAST THE RED LINE!!! how crazy and amazing is Tom Cruise!! it’s that for 2 or so hours. but it’s good, I managed to enjoy the full movie. When it comes to rebooting an old old franchise from the 80’s, this is as good as they come. 2/5
  4. First time having a 10yr tallisker tonight. Lovely stuff, very Smokey, woody and Spicey. I think it’s as good as a lagavulin 16yr! Which is impressive as that’s $160CAD before tax and this was only $120CAD.
  5. Barbarian (2022) Really got into the first half of this where it was doing some really interesting things, then like most novelty horror films it can't quite land and descends into more mainstream tropes. 2.5
  6. So is the PS5 still hard to get in the UK? My sister has been after once since launch here in Canada and still struggles to find a reasonable price. Shops here don't sell the console on it's own, always in a bundle. Current cheapest is the GOW bundle at $920 after tax (554 pound sterling).
  7. I would have been a good script writer for this; -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Indy's (IndianaJones) hat falls off as he slides under a closing doorway. Woman "Are you gonna get that?" Indy (Indiana Jones) "Nah, too old for that shit, I'll buy another" -------------------------------------------------------------------------
  8. Couple of new materials;
  9. Hopefully this is the new Avatar and there are 5 more being worked on right now
  10. This is the bit that got me, this right here shows the real potential magic of the movie where you take iconic mario elements and place them in more realistic settings with more human like animations, to show how absurd the designs can be. I really hope the marketing doesn't spoil the majority of these moments, should really stop watching trailers now. I'm on board.
  11. Princess gone all WOKE for the SNOWFLAKES lol #NOTMYPRINCESS I actually went to twitter fully expecting stuff like that but couldn't find anything. What's going on?
  12. Argh that Brooklyn shot with the plumber van. Why do Mario movies insist on explaining the plumbing backstory. It's never ever mentioned in the games, it doesn't matter, it's boring.
  13. Having missed these last batch of episodes, would it be mad to watch the finale only?
  14. Come on, spill it rllmuk, is this pants or not? Need some straight talk here. Only valid opinions I’ll accept are from those who have watched the entire series of Dark.
  15. Wonder I initially tried this yesterday and gave up within 20mins. Just wasn’t feeling it, also weirded out how grainy the image is. Gave it another go tonight and enjoyed it, I like how it plays out, not quite as conventional as I was expecting. Super bleak though, beware. 3/5
  16. I was really excited to return to this after finishing to 'mop up' but it's really badly designed for that I think. Firstly the map is awful, moving around isn't fun as you have to mess around finding your way to warps. I've also kept trying things that are way too difficult for me even though I've finished the game, it's difficult to know which way to go in regards to take part in 'doable' parts first. So a lot of dead ends.
  17. Still not watched this latest batch of episodes, which is odd seeing how far I'm come on this dreadful journey
  18. where is that character found?
  19. Oh, I stopped after the credits, there’s more? Thought it was just an existing side mission it was asking me to do. mostly focused on main story, took me this amount of hours… .
  20. Oh I have it, just didn’t want to spoil it for others
  21. 33 hours in, can finally see light at the end of the tunnel (without doing hardly any side quests) The combat is pretty relentless now, after dying multiple times I’ll eventually barely make it and have to take a moment and breathe. Super satisfying (and frustrating!) at times. Something I kinda wished I understood earlier (after a friend pointed it out) are the runic attacks, you don’t get heavy ones for quite a while but you should absolutely learn how to use these. It’s the same for axe/blade; hold L1 and then hit R1 for light and R2 for heavy. They are charged attacks that take around a minute or so to charge up again. What’s great is that you can switch from axe/blades and do the same whilst you wait for the other weapons to charge. It’s all in the lower left, once you see it and start consciously using these it’s a game changer. sorry if it’s super obvious but yeah I was getting distracted with all the other moves and stuff.
  22. I think I’m enjoying this more than most because I’m coming from having just played Bayonetta3 which has absolutely horrendous combat
  23. Haptics are so crazy on PS5 for this game that I’m having to recharge my pad every 2 or so hours.
  24. Been playing on default. 22 hours in and not had to change it though have had some ‘should I?’ moments in the last few hours of play, it certainly starts ramping up around the 15 hour mark. That said I’m hardly touching side quests and have only done 2 of those rune chests (probably out of about 30-40) that raise your health/rage. If I was taking my time I’d might switch it up 1 level. I just want to get through it asap to be honest, tried listening to a ‘non spoiler’ podcast and it was just too much info. Then last night scrolling though news there was a headline about a specific part in the first hour of the game. I feel like this could be similar to LOU2 where within a week people are going to be casually arguing about certain narrative decisions that are essentially spoilers. am already looking forward to going back and mopping up, which is always a sign of a good game!
