  1. The Star Wars Thread

    New trailer for The Book of Boba Fett I don't normally watch trailers beyond the first one but I figured this one wouldn't show too much, and so it proved
  2. General Movie Thread

    Thanks that helps. It feels like A LOT of Spiderman, but if people enjoy it I guess that Across the Spider-verse is connected to the Miles Morales 'Into the Spider-verse' film. And Miles hasn't been in MCU yet I take it.
  3. General Movie Thread

    As someone who's not seen any of the Spiderman films, I'm blown away by how many there are these days. And some are canon MCU but others aren't? And something about lots of Spidermen all joining together in the latest ones? It's all very confusing
  4. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    "But what will it mean to their bottom line!" The beauty of Game Pass is that Xbox's first party line-up are all on there day 1. That surely won't be the case for Playstation, though I suppose maybe it doesn't need to be quite as good and enticing as GP, something that's 'good enough' might do for them. PS Plus has been pretty terrible for a while now, so anything to make the service better would be welcome. The slow trickle of PS5 games doesn't help though tbf.
  5. They love to troll us with that Isabelle in Smash bait and switch (*click*)
  6. Metroid Dread

    This is a great video for anyone interested in animation: Nintendo games have been pretty on fire lately when it comes to animation. It feels like Nintendo putting importance into their usual polish and small details has been extended into animations now as well. Luigi's Mansion 3 was also excellent. Mercury Steam seem to have hired a ton more animators since Samus Returns.
  7. General Switch Discussion

    It's out of stock on Amazon atm, you need to get one from a third party supplier. Crazy to think that nearly five years later the RRP has gone down £20 in the UK and has stayed at full price in the US!
  8. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    Putting the bugs to one side, the actual content in the game seemed a little disappointing so to hear that there's a big update and expansion coming is good news for people like myself who decided to wait.
  9. The Star Wars Thread

    On the one end of the scale you have the original trilogy, The Phantom Menace and The Last Jedi which make do with a small number of locations. On the other you have Revenge of the Sith and Rise of Skywalker that throw a million places at you. Especially the latter.
  10. The Star Wars Thread

    Bit of a personal project of mine these past couple of years. I've created a set of Star Wars infographics, that show off exactly how long a particular location is on screen for. Been working on them on/off since Covid hit. Here's the main one but if anyone's interested, check out the full set: www.locationscreentime.com
  11. Fair enough on why it didn’t get nom’d, I hadn’t realised that. Putting aside personal opinions on the game for a second though, it’s the best reviewed game of the year by far. All the nominees are at 84-88 on MC, Forza is 92. I suppose it’ll be up for next year’s awards.
  12. Indie Games

    Every day there seems to be a new indie game announced for the Switch so I figured this would be a good place to group some of the "smaller" titles together (though obv feel free to start standalone threads should you so choose). Thought I'd start off with this game just announced coming to Switch in Spring: TumbleSeed Looks great!
  13. I would laugh so hard if Ratchet ends up winning. I still can't believe it got nominated. A roguelike, third person shooter/adventure game? The latter two types of games are constantly getting nominated and just last year Hades got a nomination, so yeah. Forza Horizon 5, the best reviewed game of the year you could say didn't get a nom because of it's genre. Not Returnal.
  14. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Pretty crazy that they included that tbf, though I guess it's probably just a fake letter typed up for this purpose. The spelling mistake on sentence one suggests as much lol.
  15. Metroid Dread

    Very cool how the devs planned for sequence breaks like this (and plenty other easter eggs).
  16. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    What a great idea!
  17. Return of Gamesmaster

    I think any of us on this forum could have done better on Mario 3D World, so I have to wonder about their selection process, but otherwise, fair enough. Maybe Star Trek Discovery has made me over-sensitive about this kind of thing. Apart from that silly bit of saying the two women were a couple, it was about the gamer and games, you're right.
  18. Return of Gamesmaster

    Apart from the tedious box-ticking with all the subtlety of an elbow to the face, that was really enjoyable! Great throwback to a different time on tv.
  19. General TV Thread

    Ted Lasso is f-ing. amazing. That is all.
  20. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Meh. It's been ok, but nothing more. My best experience has been playing the Mass Effect trilogy and Immortals Fenyx Rising. Miles Morales was fun but more of the same, Ratchet looked pretty and that's about it, and Ghost of Tsushima (port) bored me to tears. I didn't play Returnal (£70 at launch? puhlease). The OS is snappy but a step down, and it was obvious Activity Cards were a pointless waste of time when they announced them, let alone a year in. Not a great first year software-wise but hopefully next year will be an improvement with God of War and Horizon. I just hope Sony finally mixes up their cookie cutter openworld formula for the latter. Unlikely though.
  21. Switch eShop Thread

    If you like A Link to the Past I think you'll love it.
  22. Ratchet and Clank for Game Direction and Game of the Year... Lol. Amazed Forza Horizon 5 didn't make much of a splash, 92 on Metacritic. Must be the genre, as discussed above.
  23. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    It's fantastic, they deserve tons of praise for it. All their pro-consumer moves are something to celebrate for sure.
  24. Things have improved a lot recently with Celeste and Hades getting so much buzz and being nominated and even winning a few GOTYs themselves.
  25. Star Trek Masturbatathon

    Enjoyed the first two episodes well enough, intriguing storyline, though the main character and the rock girl are seriously annoying (what were they thinking with the voice acting choice for the latter). Nice visuals but the animation and overall production feels a bit cheap, but maybe I'm just used to Lucasfilm animation.
