    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    It feels like it could be the pilot to a really great tv series. A bit like Young Indiana Jones but...erm...with less shit stuff in it.

    I had significant trouble watching it on the tv at home, that’s for sure. I’d love to see someone alter the colour grading to make it as bright as one of the older films...I might even amend my score to a Zzap Sizzler.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Well, finally decided to watch it. Quite honestly, for me it's the best of the 'new' Star Wars films. Everyone appeared to be enjoying hamming it up - which does seem surprising given the production difficulties. Didn't need the bit at the end with the reappearance of mr robot legs though. Also - why in god's name is it so dark? It felt to me to be a markedly more jovial romp in the Star Wars universe, and I could have done with the colours popping much more than they did. It's like someone forgot to correct the thing and decided to say 'sod it'. Anyway, it's a perfectly decent and enjoyable film. It doesn't make me any more or less inclined to see another one at the cinema, but it kept me awake all the way through, and it made me chuckle a little. I'd rate it a Crash Smash. But only just.
  4. So, I really like Mass Effect Andromeda. It has a much more interesting story than it's given credit for. It has by far the best combat of any Mass Effect game there's ever been. It can actually look spectacularly pretty on occasion. Sure, some of the voice acting is fucking awful, and the facial animation is on the whole...bobbins, but sod it. At least they had the decency to sort out the eyes so they at least look a little bit more life-like now before they were all sacked. Anyway, it's a good game, and EA are the worst people in the business for rushing it the fuck along so they could balance the end of year financials...That didn't go so well for them though, so I guess that's something to smile about. On the downside, it's effectively delayed the reappearance of the franchise for years, and I'm going to guess I'll never find out what happens to all the characters I actually rather liked. Yeah, you heard me - the crew are pretty great. Even Leon - who can't act to save his life, but he looked dreamy. Also, despite me not having anything remotely capable of HDR, this game surely gives me the closest representation of what HDR probably looks like than any other game I've played. It's neon-tastic! Folk should give it another go, forget about the gurning (oh, and the whole bizarre research into weapons thing - that was far too much like hard work for no gain) and enjoy it. That's all.
  5. Christ, the second trailer to this has given you literally the whole fucking plot of the movie away. I mean, I can vaguely remember what happened due to the originals, but that's possibly the worst spoiler-laden trailer I've ever seen.
  6. I did wonder if there'd been some sort of 'fiddling' with it, as whilst it's still tough, I'm constantly getting enough progression to make it incredibly enjoyable!
  7. Sheesh. I've had this wonderful thing since launch and quite honestly the initial learning curve felt too much at that time. Thought I'd give it another go - mainly because it's one of the most beautiful games I've ever played (along with a glorious soundtrack), and I'm absolutely absorbed by it. Finding the going tough, but surprisingly fair... Well, until I gave the first main boss a go...some more grinding to do before I'm able to beat the bugger, but the animation on him (and his size!) is such that at the moment I don't care so much. It's so good. SO. GOOD.
  8. It's an odd one. I'm of a similar position to the folk who think the animations are practically perfect, and after enjoying Voltron enormously I've been having hopes that maybe we'd get a new Avatar series on Netflix. Maybe it'll happen one day.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Has there been a delay in releasing this over here in the UK digitally? It was up on pre-order yesterday on Google play with a release today, but now it's basically vanished from the front page, with only a 'add to wishlist' reference.
  10. Reading the posts about not liking Witcher 3...I have a deep love for the game, and think it’s possibly the best game I’ve ever played. Horizon comes along...everything about it screams that it will be a game that I’ll love possibly even more than Witcher, and yet...I couldn’t get along with it whatsoever. I still don’t quite know why. Alloy is a great lead character, the graphics are fab. The combat is considerably better than Witcher (at least, it seemed so to me), yet it leaves be absolutely cold. It’s something of a cross to bear.
  11. Online gaming. Anything that has me joining up with other people leaves me utterly cold. I'm a full on hermit when it comes to my gaming pursuits.

    Jesus is always free - you just need to let him into your heart. I just stick to drinking the wine.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    It’s one of those games I’ll eventually pick up cheap because I’m a sucker for pretty visuals, but it’s more or less like the previous ones so I can take it or leave it. This version of Lara Croft is such a thoroughly miserable and unlikeable soul to me I’ve always found it a chore to get through them. They’re solid games I guess, but there’s just no soul in ‘em. The Uncharted games have always been the measure I use with these things, and especially with Lost Legacy they showed you can have incredible ladies in leading roles, gorgeous visuals, comedy and not get all mopey about it.

    That's true - I didn't see the match, so hadn't picked up on that charming piece of info.
