    Uncut Gems is up tomorrow. Can’t wait. 

    It's amazing.  My favourite movie of 2019.  Word of warning though - it's tense from beginning to the end and you will be shouting out loud at the main character.


    I really can't believe that Adam Sandler was snubbed by not being nominated for the Oscars.  In my opinion, he's better than even Joaquin was.

    The only consolation would be if they’ve secretly included the Battle Royale update in amongst it :)  


    I really think this is what it is, especially when you consider the rumours that the battle royale map will be a combination of all the spec ops maps as one giant map for 200 players.  Rumours are that it launches next week.  Fingers crossed.

    10. Booksmart
    11. Marriage Story
    12. Eighth Grade
    13. Vox Lux

    14. Bird of Passage

    Parasite and Once upon a Hollywood couldn't quite make the cut.


    Nice to see Capernaum in there.  More people should see it - absolutely phenomenal movie and very close to home for me.  Didn't make my list though as I watched it last year. 


    Anyways, here's my Top Ten:


    1. Uncut Gems

    2. Knives Out

    3. Joker

    4. Parasite

    5. Hustlers

    6. The Irishman

    7. Midsommar

    8. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    9. Avengers Endgame

    10. Ford v Ferrari


    Films that just missed the top ten:  Us, Dolemite, Peanut Butter Falcon, I Lost My Body, Pain and Glory, Toy Story 4, Ad Astra.


    Still need to watch Marriage Story, Monos, Lighthouse, Portrait of a Lady on Fire and Jojo Rabbit amongst others.  I have a feeling some of these might change my list somewhat.

  4. So this is a nice little Easter egg.  Apparently one of the Russian signs in St. Petrograd translates as follows:


    This is the place where I write really very tiny, so I can fill the sign with a lot of words that make it genuine, when in reality - it's all nonsense. You won’t know what I wrote because the text is so small that it is illegible and probably for the better, because I can’t speak or write Russian, and this will probably be wrong. In any case, I appreciate you - the person whom I have never met, who took the time to carefully examine this sign. Although we will never meet, it gives me joy to know that you are looking at my work.

    For the authenticity of the work that we provide enough for each sign, it is important to give a hint that what we wrote makes sense

    Keep your bags with you at any time. If you see unattended luggage, notify the authorities immediately.

    For your convenience, please arrive at your terminal at least fifteen minutes before the train leaves.

    In any case, you really should stop looking at this sign, you have a train to catch. I would not want you to miss the train because of my account. In any case, between us would never have succeeded. It will be better this way. We are from two different worlds. You, the organic form of life, and I am a sign. You can die tomorrow, and I, I already feel how my discontent is growing, because electronic signs are installed in each terminal.

    Greetings to all my friends and family who supported me in my efforts to be the best sign I could be. I could not have done it without you. You are the reason I get out of my metaphorical bed.

    Thanks to my colleagues — other signs — for your continued wisdom and patience. You really taught me what it means to be informative, and every day I strive to follow your example and be as clear and legible as possible.



  5. New content incoming today: Vacant, Shipment, New 2v2 content, Dropzone, etc. 


    Not really sure why they keep changing the maps though - I wasn't a big fan of the new "safe spaces" in Crash, and now it looks like people can go on top of the containers in Shipment.  Weird.




  6. I still don't get why Scrapyard and Vacant aren't in the game as stand-alone 6v6 multiplayer maps as they already exist within the game (in Spec Ops and Ground War).  I know that Vacant is coming soon, but they shouldn't be drip feeding us this stuff.


  7. I bought a launch PAL one in 95, my first year of uni in Manchester.  Damn I feel old.


    So many amazing memories though - Gran Turismo, Tekken 3, Wipeout 2097, Metal Gear, Micro Machines, Ridge Racer, Soul Blade / Calibur, Tony Hawk, Resident Evil.  What a machine!


    Sidenote - I was lucky enough to win a limited edition 20th Anniversary PS4 and ended up selling it for 2,500 quid to a rich kid in Dubai :)




    Is there a 25th anniversary edition, so I can try to take advantage again?

  8. MW Battle Pass Season 1 has been leaked - all 104 tiers of it:  https://www.dexerto.com/call-of-duty/modern-warfare-season-one-battle-pass-leaked-100-tiers-camos-more-1292628


    The good news - So far, it seems like the pass has got a lot less filler items than BO4's battle pass did - less emblems and calling cards and more operator skins, new weapons, weapon variant blueprints, charms, watches, etc. 


    The bad news - Only 23 out of the 104 tiers are available for everyone for free.  The other 81 tiers (including all 12 operator skins) are part of the premium paid version.

    enough time between rounds for a quick tinker in Gunsmith to try a new scope or perk and then back into the chaos, it is completely and overwhelmingly engrossing.


    One of my favourite innovations is the fact that you can edit your loadout and Gunsmith stuff while the match is going on!

  10. This does look absolutely phenomenal!


    Having never played a flight simulator before though, is there an actual "game" in there (like Pilotwings) or is it just flying around different aircraft from point A to point B taking in the breathtaking scenery?

  11. With Modern Warfare having just been released under two months ago (and being one of the best CODs since MW2 IMO), Activision is already causing a bit of controversy with their next COD game.


    Originally, they had Raven & Sledgehammer producing a Vietnam era Cold War COD title for release at the end of 2020.  Now, it looks like they've been given the back seat and Treyarch will now take the lead on bringing us Black Ops 5 instead.  This is most likely due to the fact that WW2 was highly regarded as the worst COD game in a long time, but also because BO4 was their most profitable generating over $800 million in microtransactions. 


    Personally, I think they should take a year off and keep pumping out content for Modern Warfare.  The gameplay and graphics are the best they've ever been and hopefully the seasonal content which should be starting in December won't fuck it up for us like BO4's did.

  12. 200 person Modern Warfare Battle Royale Mode leaked!






    Notably, the map seems to contain both massive Ground War maps and the similarly large Spec Ops mode map within its boundaries.

    This new battle royale mode will reportedly allow up to 200 players (100 more than Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode) to duke it out in the usual solos, duos, or squads variations.

    The battle royale mode will also apparently have a new feature called “Gulag,” where eliminated players will have a chance to battle 1 vs. 1, with the victor getting to respawn. Occasionally there’s some sort of “jail break” that allows all imprisoned players to respawn. Players get to watch each 1 vs. 1 match while a timer counts down to their turn, with players able to place bets on other competitors to earn something called “Plunder.”


    This new Plunder system allows you to earn points by eliminating enemies and achieving mission goals. Once you get some Plunder, you can convert it into experience points at ATMs located around the map. The player with the most Plunder at the end of the match gets recognized for their efforts. If you wander into a bank to deposit your Plunder, an alarm goes off and alerts nearby players.


    Also worth noting, while Blackout had missions that players could complete, they mostly involved surviving to a certain player count. Modern Warfare’s battle royale missions are a bit more involved, and will apparently have you hunting down specific players, collecting scavenger crates, capturing a domination point, or other options.


    Outside of the Gulag, respawning has also been retooled. You can loot a respawn token, but you only ever get to respawn once. You can revive a teammate by dropping their body off at an ambulance with a respawn token, where they’ll be taken to the Gulag for their chance to come back. At some point in the game, the Gulag closes and players can’t respawn at all.




    Blackout was by far BO4's best mode for me, but a lot of the times I found that the majority of the top 5 players would hide their way to the top.  The plunder system will add an incentive for people to get some kills, so I'm pretty excited by this.

  13. Apparently, the PC update was datamined and there are supposedly 38 free maps coming!!!!  Here's a breakdown:


    Gunfight: (5 Maps)

    - Cage (mp_m_cage)

    - Cargo (mp_m_cargo)

    Other: (2 Maps)

    - Gun Course (mp_t_gun_course): Make your way through the course as fast as possible while clearing all enemy targets and avoiding civilian casualties.

    - Marksman Range (mp_t_sn_reflex)



    That is an absolute shit ton of content!  Even the remakes are a great selection (though I really wish Afghan was included).  Hopefully a BR mode will also be added early 2020 and then this could well be the best COD of all time - unless they royally fuck up the season pass system with pay to win weapons.
