    Yeah, that was bizarre. He's said the clock he was looking at just went black, but I'm sure that wasn't the only clock he could have used. Also, Kellen Moore has said that someone was standing in front of the clock hewas watching, which sounds equally bad as an excuse.

    I'm watching the Cowboys/Chargers game and although the first half was great, the third quarter has been a disaster and I'm not feeling optimistic for the fourth.
  3. Everyone should watch The Driver. It is, as @ZOK says, brilliant.
  4. Yeah, they're not annoyed about the remake itself. They're annoyed that the remake isn't regressive as fuck with female characters that are just eye candy and characters of colour who know their place. They're racists and misogynists who are so entitled that any hint that the world doesn't revolve exactly around them sends them into a fury. We even get it here, to a lesser degree. Just look at the reaction to Teela having agency and an actual arc in the new MOTU series. Admittedly, that was Spainkiller, but even so. Fuck them into the sun. But also, do whatever the hell you want with a new version of an old IP. It doesn't magically erase the original.
  5. I thought Drag Me To Hell was abysmal, and this is nowhere near as good. Disclaimer - it's really not my type of horror. I like slow, creepy shit with ambiguity and ghost type supernatural stuff. The VVitch/Babadook/Midsommar/Wicker Man (old) = brilliant. Slasher films/schlock/zombie/torture porn = turd.

    Wow, I was not expecting the Cowboys to play that well against the Bucs, especially since the Bucs have the same starting line-up as they did when they won the Superbowl. As a Cowboys fan, this bodes well for the season, though I'm sure they'll find a way to fuck everything up as usual. A 5 game suspension for La'el Collins, for example...
  7. The new Conjuring is shit, unsurprisingly. I thought the first was good for about the first half. The second was good for maybe the first quarter from memory. This continues that trend by being good for absolutely none of its runtime. Competently made but with no tension, scares or interesting events or characters.
  8. It's not like they don't care though. Every stream I've watched recently had Vinny catching that the sync was off and "doing something" to try to fix it. Usually it's worked to some degree, but there must be something off about their setup if it's this frequent of an issue. But also, I watched the Sony stream live and it was far from unwatchable for me. Annoying for a bit, but nowhere near unwatchable.

    He is an incredible player. Just phenomenal. Watching him play is always great. I just think he's a dreadful person. Got nothing against the Bucs as a team at all, except that they were playing against the team I support.

    Because you're a Bucs fan, or a Brady fan? Hopefully the former because the man's a cunt. It's such a shame he's also the GOAT.

    Big and important and headache inducing for me.

    Ooh, season starts tonight/early tomorrow morning! I'm not going to be able to watch the Cowboys-Bucs game until Saturday morning though. Boo!

    Oh God, I see what you mean. I've watched 55 seconds of that preview and my eyes hurt and I've got a headache. It looks like it'll be great if you can handle the camera movement, but I'm not sure I can.
  14. His recruitment strategy doesn't seem to be going down too well. Nintendo Life say he posted the same thing on GameFAQs which was pretty much immediately deleted by mods; and his reaction to our reaction was to delete the thread (cowardly, and shouldn't be allowed!). Would be very interesting to find out if anyone here who applied ever gets a response.
  15. That's not even slightly true.
  16. Both the novel and the film are fantastic. It's not like The Black Dahlia, which is a brilliant book and a dull film. Obviously you're free to have your own tastes, but if you don't like LA Confidential I'd question whether you like any noir or neo-noir. It's absolutely up there with the best of them.
  17. Yeah, my contract is full of that stuff. Can't say anything critical of the studio in public, can't do outside projects that are even vaguely related to games (even for free) without running it past studio management first. Certainly can't do anything paid (like a Patreon) to do with games without their approval.
  18. Yeah, I'd love it if they had Dan, or Austin, or Abby involved too. They get Abby in some of the streams - Back 4 Blood and Sea of Thieves, and I always enjoy those. I certainly wouldn't swear to this, but I get the feeling from things that have been said before that Dan's a fucking nightmare to work with. Just occasional mentions (by him, as well as other people) about how challenging it is being his line manager. And his show ideas aren't always great *cough*Burgle*cough* but there's no denying that he's enthusiastic, watchable and entertaining. Does he still work for WWE? Austin would be great, but his new job in game dev probably wouldn't let him. Mine wouldn't (not that I'd want to do that, or that anyone would ever watch me if I did!)
  19. I enjoyed the show. I think Season 2 was my favourite, then 4, then 1 and then 3
  20. Either I've just been beaten down by their streams, or things are better than they were. I'm actually enjoying Full Motion Vinny again, and their State of Decay series is good too. Could still do with a bit more.... something from them though I don't exactly know what. I just want the energy they used to have during Astroneering or Vinnyvania or Kerbal. I'm currently watching Vinny play Rimworld which is fine, but he really needs someone else to bounce off I think. He's still really personable and watchable but just a bit more subdued.
  21. The new Revelations series on Netflix is great. Better than a film would be simply because (but not only because) there's time to let the story develop rather than having to be crammed into 90 minutes.
  22. I'd quite like a remake of The Big Sleep. Obviously Bogart and Bacall are unbeatable, but I adore the book and there's an edge to it that the film doesn't quite capture. It feels watered down. The boil isn't quite hard enough. On the other hand, any remake wouldn't have Bogart or Bacall in it, so why bother?
  23. I also enjoyed Brand New Cherry Flavour. It's by Nick Antosca who wrote Channel Zero and Antlers. If they were your sort of thing, BNCF is worth checking out.
