  1. and call it what? and call it what? Adventure Of Stone or something? Wouldn't have had as many people talking about it so far if it was called that compared to Uncharted. Creatively what you say makes 100% sense. It could turn out to be amazing of course but you're not going to risk 200 million on a new name where if it turns out 'ok' it's going to be a disaster if nobody is talking it. If Uncharted is 'ok' it will probably still make a substantial amount of it's money back because it's getting talked about so much.
  2. Watched King Of Kong again last night, it still holds up really well regardless of all the stuff that has happened since. I think it's my favorite videogame documentary ever with just how entertaining/funny it is as well as really teleporting you directly into that world. So good, I think there was 'spiritual sequel' to this documentary right? never saw it but I got the impression at the time that it wasn't a touch on this?
  3. I know right, what kind of response did they expect? "Oh thank you for showing me this clip, I had not seen it! It's just like Dad, what a great memory. Was like he was alive again for a brief moment, thank you"
  4. Watched a couple of 'The movies that made us' episodes last night for the first time, it has interesting concept but christ on a bike the presentation was horrible with it's fast cuts and constant noise. Also the replaying of short snippets from the film that are like reactions to the talking heads are really grating. In general though it's presented like a Ch4/Ch5 reality show where it's overly trying really hard to keep the attention of the viewer. At times it even feels like a gossip magazine in tv form. They have a great concept here and have managed to get some great people to interview but I wish the presentation was more slow/focused/serious. That said, I think they probably made the smarter choice of making it more 'kid friendly' so that parents could watch with their kids without boring them to death. I realize that, it's just from a selfish point of view it's a real shame.
  5. As long as it's not just 90mins in a single room with coogan dressed as Saville leering at a photo of a child going 'Howz about that then" every 30 seconds then I'm ok with it. Hopefully it has a bit of a story to it and other characters.
  6. Movie exec "Yeah, come on. Scream is dated, they did everything they could with that story. Why?!" Writer "but...but..." Movie exec "....." Writer "Has Ghostface ever had to deal with a modern day Security Home System where the house is fully controlled by the phone?" Movie exec "TAKE MY MONEY!"
  7. Only just found out the episode I watched last week was a season finale, I had no idea. Can't even remember what happened. That said, best season in a while.
  8. Was listening to it the other day and this lady rang in moaning about British people who work in care homes, the foreigners were much more smart she said because they came prepared with good gloves and shoes where as the British people would come in with wet socks as they were not smart with how they protected themselves in poor weather. It's honestly this kinda thing that keeps me listening from time to time, you never know when it's going to happen but it's fascinating when it does.
  9. They really are clueless aren't they? If I were in charge I would have had be about the original cast of the first game and have it play out more as a spoof documentary about the making of the original game that opens with them shooting that iconic live action intro scene but in true Dark Place fashion it's revealed that there was actually a canned tv show made using the same actors soon after the development of the first game. That's the only way to make a good resident evil film/tv show for current times.
  10. I find myself listening to LBC whilst doing boring things like making the coffee or washing up etc. What grates me the most are probably the adverts, they are clearly very targeted at old people and angry men. Often there will be an advert that is making fun of avocados, yoga, meditating, working at home, therapy etc.

    Squid Game

    Nah this is great. Not been hooked on a Netflix show like this since queens gambit. Can’t wait for more

    stick that on the poster
  13. I was thinking about this several months ago, Larry would have a field day with tackling COVID. So much awkwardness to have fun with. i presumed he wouldn’t do it as it wouldn’t be ‘timeless’
  14. I really miss Peter. I just don't buy into the idea that he purposely deceived people, he was just really into his ideas and freely shared his vision/ideas before thinking them through. In that sense, adapting that personality to a crowdfunding model was a recipe for disaster as you can't oversell if you're asking people to buy early on. The modern day Molyneux in my eyes is Joesph Fares, I'm not talking about the 'Fuck the Oscars' speech but if you ever see him in laid back interviews he's often over excited and talking more than he probably should. I much prefer this to the really guarded developers who are being super careful with what they share to avoid upsetting their publishers.
  15. If I was in charge of this movie I would have made it more of a funny but charming indie movie with some unknown playing Charles Martinet who is forced to retire but can't let go. Nintendo have hired a new young star to take on Mario's voice and has to spend a week with Charles at his home during his last week working for Nintendo. They both start off on the wrong foot, with Charles over managing and following the new guy everywhere. The movie is about Charles letting go and passing on the torch to a new generation of Mario fans. That's how I'd have gone about this movie.
  16. I think that would be the obvious route to go. What I think will actually happen;
  17. Watched two documentaries this weekend; Some Kind of Heaven Trailer A film about some sort of Disneyland for old retirees. I was left disappointed to be honest, I wanted to know more about the actual place and setup but instead its a character study of a few residents. Not as funny as the trailer suggests either. 2/5 The Truffle Hunters A film about old men in a rural part of Italy hunting truffles with their dogs. This was really nicely done and pretty funny. Even though not a deep dive into the subject, like the film before it's a character study but the subjects were a perfect mix to clearly communicate the situation of truffle hunting as it is today. 4/5
  18. They clearly ran away and halted the project once they realized the true error of their deeds. Don’t mess with the masterpiece that was gamesmaster or we here at rllmuk towers will unite and riot. if anyone else out there is thinking of rebooting it, come to us first and earn our respect. Only then will we lay down our swords.
  19. Hmmm, I see where rooster is coming from. This game was probably in pre-production in 2018, they probably had an idea PS5 was coming back then but wouldn't have known much more than 'it's more powerful'. It would have been a huge risk to commit to PS5 only because a) they have no experience of PS5 dev b) Smaller audience. So it would have been made as a 'PS4 game with a possible next gen version' in mind. That was the much safer option. So they built it like a PS4 game with certain settings scaled up and enabled on PS5 similar to all other PS4/PS5 games. So when they do finally make a PS5 version from the ground up, that's when they can throw the PS4 rulebook out the window and develop to the PS5 experience. This will likely coincide with a major overhaul on their inhouse engine where they can now justify spending resources on developing new features that the PS4 wasn't capable of. So whilst I don't think it's fair to say it doesn't look any more graphically advanced than the first one (on PS5 especially), it is using the same palette so to speak. If they made a PS5 game, with final PS5 devkits from the go with that being the only platform. I would be very confident that there would be a more obvious 'leap' in quality.
  20. Same, it kinda felt nostalgic. There was one area in particular where there was this opening and I went in, followed it around the edge of the map for quite a while and it was just a total dead end. Any other game would have had at least something there for the player What fascinates me is how much of this is intentional (i.e he's playing into nostalgia) and how much is down to just wanting a speedy production?
  21. If you say that last bit really fast, it sounds like ‘Saul goodman’ which is the name of the character.
  22. As long as Keanu has the line 'I'm too old for this shit', I'm in.
  23. Finished it, I've enjoyed it but I just don't think it's a special game in any way. The netflix episodic thing was really the only interesting addition to the series but that grates after a while. Other than that, it's just more of the same in a world where there is now much more crazy on offer. The repetitive but oddly satisfying combat is the star of the game this time around, rather than the oddball story and characters. Final score, 65 out of 100.
  24. The only gamesmaster presenter that would work today would be richard ayoade.
