  1. We were there too. After scraping a draw against Rotherham it was quite a disappointing game. Second half was more enjoyable. Despite having a goal disallowed for a dubious offside Lincoln never really looked like scoring in my opinion (which sounds ridiculous). Ipswich fans were loud I thought, they’ve obviously got good travelling support. it’s our first time as season ticket holders and we’re enjoying it immensely. Could definitely do with seeing a win against Plymouth, however unlikely that might be.
  2. I also found the gunplay quite hard to start with, but now that I’ve got a few powers and upgrades and have got used to the controls a little better it’s working ok. I think on a controller gratuitous use of aim-down-sights is acceptable. My current fun thing to do is to collect all the gun turrets and bring them with me like a conveyer belt so I’ve always got cover wherever I go and sometimes barely need to do any shooting at all.
  3. I completely agree with your points on the pacing. I think the epilogue would have sat better if it was released later as a separate DLC (for free obvs).

    The Witness

    The Witness is to this day the only game I have the Platinum on. I’ve got close with a couple of others but my time is more valuable than the grind. The Witness doesn’t require you to do all the trophies to get the Platinum, only to complete “The Challenge”. The beauty is, because of it’s impossible to cheat at this. You can only do it if you’ve properly learned all the systems the game has taught you. The game is a masterpiece in designing a language, teaching it to you, and then saying “show me”. And for that reason, irrespective of whatever Jonathan Blow says, or the subtext behind the game, it will always be special to me, because it’s about the journey.
  5. That’s a bit like saying your new Ferrari isn’t any faster than the old one.
  6. For your own sake, please please please do everything you can to avoid spoilers before you play. The story is a video game great in my opinion. I tried replaying this on iPad a few years back and found it a bit clunky and bland despite loving it on Xbox. I’m definitely up for the remake if it is more than just an upscale and polish.
  7. All fair points. My comment is really just about how poor England’s batting has been this summer.
  8. England don’t deserve to level the series by default. If the ECB had any integrity they would call this one off completely and give India the well-deserved series win.
  9. It’s the Blue Monday from the WW84 trailer!
  10. England getting their highest ever successful run chase after the batting summer they’ve had would certainly be a turn up for the books.
  11. Don’t forget that Phil Foden is out injured at the moment who was a starter in the first couple of Euro games so that’s one less person competing for that attacking slot. And no Sancho. I don’t see Mount or Sterling being ousted from the starting line up any time soon. For today obviously Lingard played well but I was impressed with Bellingham’s touch. I wonder how long before he is regularly in the starting line-up.
  12. Can’t be, that picture appears to have a working train system.
  13. I’d never played any before the collection came out. Irrespective of how they play, going through all three before 4 came out really made the emotional beats of the story hit harder for me. I know the story might not be why you play these games but I thought Nate and Elena’s journey was great. Lost Legacy is a perfectly paced love letter to the whole saga and is a wonderful way to see off the series.
  14. I originally thought the first few episodes of the second series were a bit mawkish but I now think the Ted and Nate storylines are putting a bit more bite in which has really helped bring it back to the standard of the first series for me.
  15. I read it last year for the first time in preparation for the film and loved it. I have posted my thoughts about that and the 1984 film already in this thread, I’ll have forgotten all that by the time the film actually comes out. Denis Villeneuve gave me Arrival and BR2049 so I have complete and utter faith that this is going to be brilliant, I just hope it does well enough to allow the second part to be made.
