  1. General Movie Thread

    Just saw this pop up on Facebook. Not a fan to be honest. Seems to miss the tone of the originals to me. Even though I found the trailer for the reboot painfully unfunny, it seemed to at least try to match the original's style. This just seems like someone tried to combine the retro aesthetic of Stranger Things with modern day. Also, children for some reason. Also, how the fuck could anyone forget/not know about the events of the first movie? Surely everyone would still be like "Hey guys, remember that time thousands of ghosts, including a fucking huge marshmallow man took over New York for a bit? That shit was wild".

    Ex-fucking-scuse me?
  3. I heard he also liked Street Fighter 3: Third Streich.
  4. His moral choices in Auschwitcher 3 weren't much better.
  5. Games length

    Depends on the game for me. As long as the story remains interesting, I'm happy for a game to go on forever (not literally, but almost). Same goes for MMOs if they really click with me. I still go back to GTA Online once in a while to see what's new. Admittedly, there aren't many MMOs that appeal to me nowadays. As for more action based games where the plot isn't the main focus, I reckon around 10 hours is good.
  6. Cyberpunk 2077 — 16th April 2020

    Consider the verticality, obviously.
  7. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I think my highlights have been Persona 5, Witcher 3, Shenmue 3 (and the 1 and 2 collection), Until Dawn, Red Dead Redemption 2, Nier Automata and GTAV. All masterpieces IMO.
  8. Playstation Plus Free Games

  9. General Retro Discussion

    Damn it, so close to Christmas and with my savings in tatters after my car died. WHY?! If it was a bit cheaper or my money situation was better, I'd be all over that. Literally my favourite game of all time (although a few others are quite close).
  10. It's like they're all trying to be human, but can't quite get the nuances down.
  11. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I get one too. Don't think it's a whole month before, but it's definitely enough in advance to cancel if I want to. Edit: just checked and I get an email 2 weeks before renewal is due
  12. Shenmue 3 (Kickstarter)

    Well, I just fanboyed so goddamn hard. I won't spoil it, but it's just after you have to speak to a female monk at a temple and have to search a room.
  13. Shenmue 3 (Kickstarter)

    The more I play Shenmue 3, the more I'm amazed it exists as it does. It's an awful game and I love it for being so bad. There have been very few updates to the gameplay, clunky controls, awful voice acting or slow pacing of the originals, which is going to make a lot of people who never played the originals wonder how anyone could possibly like such a terrible game. They could have updated the gameplay and brought it up to modern standards, but they didn't. It's clearly been done as an attempt to appeal to fans, rather than attract newcomers. The new additions and changes aren't my favourite, such as the food/stamina system or the weird black fades, but they're not a huge deal to me. I can absolutely see why a lot of people won't like it. It's a shit game, just like the originals are if you go back and play them now. But it's a sequel to a series that came out when I was 15 and was the first time I ever experienced a proper, mature story. The world is one that sucked me in so many years ago and was incredible at the time. The fact that just playing this takes me back to that time so accurately is mind-blowing to me and I'm very grateful that they took the, quite frankly insane, decision to release such an accurate recreation of the Dreamcast originals, warts and all (and a few extras thrown in for good measure).
  14. Shenmue 3 (Kickstarter)

    Anyone know how the skill book exchange works? It seems to imply you can do it from the menu, but I have all the ingredients and it doesn't seem to give me to option to exchange for the books. Edit: Ignore me, apparently it needs to be done at the pawn shop, which I've just found.
  15. What Have You Bought?

    Some new wheel centre caps for the Civic to replace the faded ones currently on it: And some valve caps because what's the point of having a Type R if you don't display the badge on everything you can? And finally, some Mighty Car Mods stickers. Probably won't use most of them, but it was cheaper to buy a pack than just the ones I wanted:
