I've not really seen that many new films this year I've realised, but of those I definitely have a top 5:
2. Mad Max
3. Ex Machina
4. Star Wars
5. The Martian
6. Mr Holmes.0
My £2 of steam wallet credit is thus far safe.0
Can't wait for the Plinkett review of Force Awakens.2
I can think of one in my top 3 already, and it was NOT MEDIOCRE.0
If by weird you mean fucking stupid.3
Despite not remembering a lot of the soundtrack, I just remembered Rey's theme being excellent. I also have a massive crush on her.0
Has everyone's brain dribbled out of their ears yet?0
I'm possibly the only person thinking this, but I hope to fuck Rey isn't a child or anything to do with anyone that's been in the previous films. There's a whole galaxy full of people to work with. Just let her be someone who has the force. The whole family line thing is already getting out of hand in the films.
The twist is that she's Luke and Leia's daughter. Shyamalan.jpg
But in all seriousness she could be anyone's daughter and the memory wipe thing after previous training would still work. Or it could just be PTSD. Anyway the point is I don't care that she got her powers quick because the whole film felt like it was sped up even if it was over 2 hours long but it still felt like 15 minutes and I didn't care. Though to be fair I hope the next film is slower paced to help the characters breathe.0
Are we still doing spoiler tags?
Anyway, regarding Rey's quickly maturing force powers, this would make sense if she was Luke's daughter and powerful already, but I think it might have more to do with the fact that she was already trained by her dad when she was a kid, and either doesn't remember or likely had her memory erased by her parents before being abandoned. This would mean her discovering her powers is more of an "awakening" (ha) of memory and abilities than discovering them for the first time0
Mine arrived now too, yay! Quite weird really.0
We need some sort of massive net system set up to catch all the points sailing over your head, NEG.
So that's what a hair system is.0
Just saw it today. If someone could go back in time and take Star Wars away from George Lucas, then make the prequels in this way...2
My thoughts exactly re:graphics. What are you running it on?
i5 2500k 3.2gz
2gb ATI 270X (very overclocked)
and 8gb ram
Apart from a few hitches it seems similar to the PS4 version just with better textures.
As for the game - The Bloody Baron questline and its conclusion might be one of the best I've ever come across in an RPG.1
That's an excellent review of Tie Fighter. The last comment on steep learning curve but player freedom in particular made me think about why Dark Souls is so great too.0
It's a port of the MS Paint-tastic mobile version, no need to get excited
Regardless of what you think of Reeves as an actor, I've had a huge amount of respect for him after reading about some of the stuff he's gone through in the past. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that he gives most of his fees to charity too.
EDIT: I think that is bollocks actually, but he's certainly involved in charities.0
Methinks you may end up with a spare?
I had to ask them about my order in Amazon chat today as well and they said they'd contact the seller. Apparently 3 working days for it.0
That's really disappointing. In a similar vein, the Yorkie bar "it's not for girls" shtick has always pissed me off.0
We're pathetic creatures of meat and bone so I'm not sure we're ready.0
That's what happened with the bottom row in our game too - every time I play Splendor it grows on me.
I highly recommend Jaipur for a 2 player card game now as well, tried it for the first time with my girlfriend the other day and I think I have to say it's one of the best 2 player games I've played. Though my gf did thrash me.0
Funny you should mention those games - earlier today I warmed up with a 4 player game of Spendor which was interesting as compared to previous games of it I've played everyone was playing very tactically and reserving cards but it screwed everyone over in various interesting ways I'd not seen much before.
Then after that played a 3 player game of Caverna (which I was told was very much like Agricola) and afterwards I can safely say it's one of my favourite games I've ever played! I was a very close third place. but didn't mind as I'd artificially screwed myself over once or twice in the game because I was determined to make a band of vegetarian, pacifist dwarves with a petting zoo, which was actually far more successful than anyone had expected to be, as I was told afterwards! It was very close on the last turn though as I was worried they would have been forced to sacrifice their house pig to feed everyone after the last harvest, which would have been a wonderful, bittersweet end to the veggie dwarf story, but happily they found some spare rubies just lying around, the spongers
Yeah my Memoir hasn't turned up yet either but it's revised its estimate to Monday.0
Damn it. My fat fingers accidentally negged this.
It's all right - the whole thread's been intentionally Negged anyway.0
So, I was going to just try and avoid this sale because of all my recent purchases, and was like, I CAN RESIST.
But then a madness took me about half an hour ago and I just added Agricola, two copies of X-wing and a Lamda shuttle expansion, and then Bang the Dice Game thrown in as well for the hell of it all... I was looking at my basket thinking, I will definitely play all these games surely and they are so shiny... But then at the last minute I bottled it and deleted everything.
But wait! I then realised I just had to get X-wing at some point on account of being a huge fan of the X-wing/Tie-fighter games and tactical turn based combat which they seem to be tailor made for me and thought what the hell, and thanks to the lighting deal I managed to get two copies in my cart for a sweet £27 and instantly clicked to buy now.
Though now I'm considering Agricola because I'll probably never see it at that price ever again, even though I'm not massively bothered it's just rated so highly...
I think I may have a problem.1
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
in Film, TV & Radio
In a universe where it apparently only takes 30 years for one of the best pilots in the galaxy to go from a household name you'd happily go for a few beers with to being just a myth.
