    The Umbrella Academy coming to Netflix

    Really enjoyed this, despite guessing most plot-twists at least three episodes before they happened. It definitely got better as the season went on. My only gripe... Fuck that! Although... ...won them enough goodwill that I’ll be back for Season 2 for sure.
  2. Heard from a reasonably plausible source that Dune's being remade with Mr Pitt. I was thinking just the other day how much of a wasted opportunity the franchise was. Get Peter jackson to do the first three books, and dump Pitt.
  3. I think this series certainly deserves a thread of its own. I loved the first game, like Shenmue with a decent fighting system. Unfortunately like Shenmue no one bought the first one. There's been no translation of the second yet. Next one's Kenzan and judging from these screen shots it seems they've done more than simply ported it over from PS2. It looks like it could be seriously good. This better be coming to the West! EDIT: New TGS trailer here

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - no spoilers pls

    Likewise Raid mode on Resi Revelations 2. I was surprised to see this was my second most played game this gen, all down to Raid mode. Also the multiplayer on Resi 5 is incredible. The single player modes on the lesser Resis hide some of the best gameplay modes around.

    Simple Kid

    There’s been a flurry of activity from Simple Kid recently. One completely new track and another remixed! Like and follow! He’s doing all this on his own.

    Bad games transformed by patches and remasters

    GTA5. You couldn't play it for more than ten minutes at launch without it freezing.

    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    Great recommendations! Finished Vision, amazing. Now started on Fantastic Four. Quick question, do you mean Hickman’s run on the Fantastic Four from issue 570, and then the later FF? Started with FF but there was so much going on I needed some serious back story, so have gone back to his stint from 570 onwards.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - no spoilers pls

    How are people S+'ing this in 2 hours on hardcore?? I'm playing on regular, with no ink ribbon limitations, being killed constantly and still being sent back an hour. I kinda love that though. The best of Resi 4 with the best of Resi OG and tarted up with modern graphics and gameplay. If this gets a decent Raid mode it may end up being my favourite Resi of all time.
  9. Same here. It has that Super meat Boy type masochism to it. I can see why people like it, but after playing these types of games for the entire 80's I can't face anymore.

    So my must read list now is the rest of Immortal Hulk and Punisher Max. Neither available on Marvel Unlimited in their entirety (or at all). Looks like I'm waiting for the next appropriate Comixology sale.

    Is there a Raid mode or similar planned for this? Or is there one already??

    I don't remember being scared in the OG Resi 2 apart from the odd jump. In contrast this one makes me poop myself constantly.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - no spoilers pls

    This game is really fucking with me now. I keep dying after about an hour or so’s play, but with only very incremental saves. When I go and replay the large chunk of game I did previously, not only is it different because of the devious map design and relentless undead/mutant hordes, but I swear some of the items move around too. I’ve died three times now, losing a large chunk of progress and on each replay I am discovering completely new areas and tackling different problems. None of this is bad by the way, quite the opposite. Best Resi since 4, and better than the first Resi 2. Yeah, I said it.

    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    Right, so I've binged and caught up on about thirty years of X-Men. Read all the X-23 stuff, Death of Logan, old Man Logan, Civil War1 & 2, Planet Hulk, WW Hulk, and gotten a handle on the multiverse and Spiderverse stuff. Also read the most famous stuff like Infinity Gauntlet and Annihilation. Is there anything else major I need to read before cancelling Marvel Unlimited again? Currently just got All New Wolverine to read which is great.

    First film seen at the cinema

    Mine was Star Wars when I was 4 at the old Rembrandt in West Ewell. Now demolished and replaced by flats.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake - no spoilers pls

    I'm loving the running around figuring out stuff; what goes where and how do I get more ammo, that code, key-item or gun that's locked away?? I've realised I've missed this element of Resi a lot since they pretty much abandoned it completely after 3. When I die before saving having done a ton of stuff, I then have to do it again, but now I can't quite remember where everything is and so get an entirely different path of gameplay. Brilliant.

    The new hardback edition of Lost Girls is available now for about twenty quid. It's a really weighty and rather beautiful tome. Well worth the money. The new Promethea deluxe editions are on the way too.
  18. I this new multi-person write-up structure. It's like Rllmuk's answer to Bits. Benny = stern Emily Wiper = Aleks So Jolly is either Claudia or Bouff.
  19. Omega VR, like Rush of Blood, gives me the dippy tummies when going over bumps but never enough to make me feel sick, more like a very mild roller-coaster. Any flying sim so far though has made my retinas detach as I vom all over the living room. At least that’s how it feels.

    So the Vectrex then

    I bought one of these off a forumite years ago. I love it, but it makes a loud buzzing, which is a common theme of most Vectrex units. There's a fix you can do if you can be bothered.

    X-Men - Dark Phoenix

    The death knell went for this when Sophie Turner was expected to be one of the most powerful and important mutants in the marvel Universe. Might as well have cast a turnip.

    Really loving how the puzzle element is back. Resi 4 for all its greatness introduced the non-puzzle puzzles and we’be not really seen them since. Not that they’re that taxing, but compared to the last decade or so they’re like the Da Vinci Code. Still can’t understand why the knife animations haven’t changed since 1996 though. When faced with a zombie about to eat your face you do not do a sweeping slash!
  23. Mass Effect Andromeda comes close. After reading the reviews I returned it still sealed to avoid depression.

    Game Design Mistakes Thread

    Getting to the monster on the plane in Code Veronica without enough bullets to kill him. Getting to the final boss rush section on Skies of Arcadia without the right level to finish. Basically any game that puts you into a point of no return with no chance of completion.
