  1. General Movie Thread

    It's been a very long time since I watched Revolutions (might well be that I last watched it when it first came out at the cinema) but I don't recall there seeming to be any possibility for sequels starring the same cast, surely it will just be a reboot? I think the Wachowski's have only improved as filmmakers in the last 15 years though so I look forward to seeing what Lana has come up with. Does seem a bit weird that Lilly isn't involved but she clearly isn't ready to start working on a big film project just yet.
  2. Death Stranding (PS4 Kojima)

    The latest stuff shown off during the Gamescom opening night has tipped me over the edge into skepticism, it seems far too heavy on the batshit story ideas and much too light on actual gameplay. I really hope we get to see a hint of a boss battle or something because watching a man urinate for 20 seconds doesn't really sell me on the actual interactive side of the game. Also Geoff Keighley's cameo is laughably awkward.
  3. Indie Games

    Great news, the first one was fantastic. I'm a little surprised that they're doing a genuine sequel though, I thought they would just do something completely new.
  4. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    Announcements of Superhot, Hotline Miami and Ori were ruined by leaks but otherwise it was a pretty good show. Very happy to see Shin'en show off their new project, looking forward to that. Will definitely pick up that and the other 3 I mentioned as I've always wanted to play them but either didn't own hardware they were out on or didn't get round to picking up
  5. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    Agreed, there was no reason for @Dcubed not to use spoiler tags, even if it is only an Indies showcase. I would have much preferred to have found out on Monday rather than from just browsing through this thread.
  6. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

    Cool, have always been interested to check this out so seems like it's another indie gem to add to my Switch backlog
  7. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    FCC filing for a Switch SNES controller has surfaced so it looks like Super Nintendo games will finally be added to the service sometime soon! EDIT: Gah, @Ike beat me to it by like a second! I saw someone on Nintendo Life theorise that we probably won't get Link to the Past at launch considering Link's Awakening is coming out in just over a month.
  8. Switch eShop Thread

    There's another big sale on at the moment too, I picked up Layers of Fears (which is 80% off right now) because I've heard good things about it. It's kind of ridiculous how many games are on my backlog now, even while I haven't been playing as much these last few months I've still been browsing the sales regularly. Going to really enjoy getting my teeth into as many games as I can once I've got more free time.
  9. General Retro Discussion

    I would be very interested in a Game Boy clone with full compatibility. I've often thought about picking up a Bitboy or something similar but they just look too cheap and nasty. An FPGA based Game Boy with a decent capacity rechargeable battery would definitely be something I would pick up.
  10. Football Season 2019-20

    I'm pretty worried we're going to do as badly as Fulham did last season, having spent a fortune in the transfer market and being overencumbered with too many new signings. But three of those new signings were key parts of the team last season and the spine of our team is pretty strong and having the likes of Grealish and McGinn - genuinely world class players - makes me a bit more optimistic. I trust in Dean Smith but there is always the worry that we throw money about to try and stay up but end up having no consistency and plummetting back to the Championship with an enormous wage bill.

  12. General Switch Discussion

    In Japan they're offering trials of Captain Toad instead so single player games are definitely on the cards.
  13. General Gaming Sales/Charts Discussion

    It seems a bit of an overreaction to call it a 'megabomb'. Still pretty healthy figures and like you say it doesn't include digital or NSO vouncher usage so the actual figure is probably significantly higher. It sold super well in the UK so I would be very surprised if it didn't exceed targets in Japan too.
  14. General Switch Discussion

    Will be interesting to see what the port is like but it's good to see ambitious titles like this are still being ported over although I guess with The Witcher 3 coming over anything is possible now.
  15. General Switch Discussion

    Pre-load for Spyro Reignited Trilogy is up and according to the eShop the download is only 6.2gb yet the physical version requires an additional download as all the games aren't stored on the game card. Either Activision are using an absurdly low capacity cart or the listing it wrong. On PS4 did you have to launch the game to download 2&3? I get the feeling that's what's happening here, initial download will only give you Spyro 1 and the others will count as additional content or something. I remember the file size for the PS4 version being laughably huge so I can't imagine Nintendo's compression would reduce the whole package to just over 6gb.
