  1. Football Season 2019-20

    Strange start to the season so far. United have had what many would consider a disastrous start, yet we're in 4th and only 2 points behind City. With the exception of Liverpool (who have had an easy start, lets see where they are at the end of October) everyone has had a rather unremarkable first 5. The answer must lie with teams who we expect to normally finish lower down the league, all of whom have already won a game. The only two teams without a win are Wolves and Watford, which is mad considering many expected them to break top 6 this year. So maybe the league is just leveling out a bit more in terms of quality? One thing is for sure, next time the international games roll around I think we're going to see a lot of new faces in the England team. There's some really exciting talent coming through (especially at United, Chelsea, Norwich, Leicester, Arsenal). Shaping up to be a good season.

    Jonnas can you please stop correcting me whilst I'm drinking, you're killing my buzz.
  3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    What a post, thank you for the explanation. I'm thinking though that maybe they'll lean more on the beat-em-up history, just because it then differentiates from Ken & Ryu. Watching some footage of FInal Fight it looks like a lot of side scrolling beat em up's in that success depends a lot on your movement, spacing and zoning (with throws being a big part of this). So maybe he'll be more of a zoning character? I

    Thanks guys, great games!

    To the people that played Final Fight, in what way we're the combo systems different to street fighter, that we could possibly see reflected with Terry in Smash?
  6. Nintendo Direct 04/09/2019, 11 pm

    Just watched it during the commute. Incredible the amount of stuff I would happily play - really does seem a world away from the dark days of the GameCube. Return of the Obra Dinn is the one I'm most excited about. I've heard great things about it, but I really dislike playing things on the PC.

  8. General Movie Thread

    Films cost more than ever to make, so studio execs are more risk averse than ever. Go with what you know works.
  9. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    I'm liking this game a lot more than I thought I would. The combat system is still solid, and the depth is impressive. But my word is it easy. I'm playing on classic, and by choice am not using the rewind mechanism at all. Think I'm at chapter 4, and I am just demolishing missions, to the extent that I'm not really having to utilise the various mechanics on offer. The second GBA game had this problem - because you could grind you could just overlevel. Going to continue on with this difficulty, do the story elements, and then come back on difficult and cut out all the monestary bits (which are just shit).
  10. Rate the last film you saw

    That's funny, the more time I have had to digest the movie the less I am liking it. Started off at a 4, now down to a 3/5. I'm a huge Tarantino fan, and I have always enjoyed his indulgences, but this had none of the breathtaking dialogue or slick momentum that normally carries me through those moments. I get the reverence for the time that he obviously has, but where as his admiration for Kung Fu movies in Kill Bill was build on a foundation of interesting characters and brilliant set pieces, this movie expected me to care 'just because'. Take the end where: You could then argue its not about the ending. But if that's the case, then you're not left with much of a movie. I can't remember once piece of dialogue, one song, or one shot - and that has never happened to movie with a Tarantino before. I was disappointed to say the least.
  11. Super Mario Maker 2 -- June 2019

    Has anyone come across any (good) creators that do multi-part levels? As in multiple levels that are tied together by a theme or story or mechanic.
  12. Switch eShop Thread

    Am I right thinking this game is a big deal, and the sequel get a couple GoTY awards? Is that game also coming?
  13. Richard E Grant?? As a fearsome space general? Are you kidding me? Going full Panto now are they? I've developed a weird curiosity with this movie, where I want to see how Abrams tries to pull it out of the fire. What elements does he keep from the last movie, and what does he trash. And how do you handle the how Leia thing without it seeming distasteful. Disney must be paying him so much to rescue this. I don't think he got the skills though.
  14. Marvel's Phase Three

    If there's any justice in this world they'll get Gareth Evans to do Shang-Chi. That movie needs actual martial arts action, not just Hollywood action. Overjoyed Taika is back as well. Thor 3 is one of my favorites.

    Caught Spiderman: Gap Yah (far from home). On Friday. It's remarkable that the story faces the same unique problems that the commercial aspirations of the creators does - that of immediately following a legacy of success. In Peter Parker's case it's that of Iron Man, in terms of the movies it follows the success of infinity war and phase 3. Here's what I'll start with - I like the movie. It doesn't take itself too seriously, it understands the characters and their importance, and it throws a couple laughs in. An enjoyable few hours, worth your money. Tom Holland remains the best live action incarnation of Parker, Zendeya the best MJ, Tomai the best May. Indeed the best parts of the movie are it's quiet moments, when we're just witnessing the characters interacting. But I get the feeling is that it's all downhill from here for Marvel. The formula is set, and it will just eat itself from here on out. Allow me to explain myself. Claire Denis, exceptional director, was reportedly offered a Marvel film recently with free reign to do whatever she wanted - apart from the action. The CG would be directed elsewhere (and on hearing this she turned the gig down). And that situation is for me is the growing rotten heart at the centre of these movies. Ever more noticeably these movies allow their directors to do interesting things with their characters, and then are forced to pass it off to a bunch of computer programmers they'll never meet. Far From Home is a culprit, with pithy dialogue being interrupted by cold CG and spectacle at an almost metronomic pace. It fails to feel like a single vision, a single movie. And the afterthought is uncomfortable.
