  1. Star Wars: Squadrons is about as close as you'll get.

    So I just read that Takashi Miike is directing an anime for Netflix that is based on the Onimusha games, with the main protagonist being styled on Toshiro Mifune. My very specific series of interests are piqued!

    That Dunkey video where he appears to selectively take certain bits in a context that makes the game seem far worse than it probably is for the lols, is a really weird thing to be doing to an AA release that isn't exactly a massive thing or likely to sell that well, considering Dunkey has been pushing that whole wanting to publish indie games thing recently. Not sure that's going to be very attractive to smaller developers.

    I'm not gonna lie, watching that video was a distinct taste of

    Call me a purist, but I genuinely think this makes Quake look completely weird and naff and wrong: Incredible(ly shit). Civvie 11 commented once that Quake II RTX just didn't look right and the same problem there applies here I think. It just looks like it's being played with the gamma turned up higher than even the sweatiest Counterstrike player would be caught dead doing.
  6. Also pro tip: Please don't use "this you?" type comments - it's one of the worst little lasting turns of phrase we got from the toxic discourse of Twitter, and it's only ever used when people want to be arseholes to each other with little "gotchas". Use it when someone is genuinely being unpleasant, or not at all. And definitely not when it's based on faulty assumptions about intent and meaning. Which is basically what all arguments on Twitter end up being at times. You probably didn't mean it that way but it gets my goat that one.
  7. I'm pretty consistent in what I mean there: I'm not saying you will be smashing through the first stages in no time at all - as it takes a long time to practice them. But once you achieve enough mastery, and are "ready" you will then be at the point where you're smashing through those stages on retries.
  8. I certainly would never suggest you'd be smashing the first few stages in no time at all. As it can take a lot of work and is very player dependent.

    Hmmmmmmm. Hate to say it, but it might need a bit more in the whelming stakes. Doesn't taste quite Boomery enough for me. Not up to the bar Apogee have already set by Turbo Overkill so far anyway.
  10. The final boss took me hours. But beating it was the best experience I've ever had in a From game. I don't think it's their best, but it's the most razor focussed. Maybe third best.
  11. Even without a VR headset it's amazing. But a flight stick is definitely recommended.
  12. I wouldn't be surprised if that scene was mandated by Disney specifically.
  13. Shh, don't say it so loud.
  14. You know what would remedy that? If it came to PC. I see the topic title is still very misleading in classic forum tradition.
  15. I was too busy loving the drumbeats to notice.
  16. When I first saw the carousel picture for the last episode on Disney Plus:
  17. They do, in a few small ways I think, but mainly in Blood and Wine.
  18. Can't believe I've never watched this scene before. It's amazing.
  19. Jesus, rise from the grave much - there are already remakes being made of games that came out in 2014 now
  20. Probably the one criticism I would have about that episode is:
