    I'm with you! Sorry, didn't mean to single you out, you were the first example when I scrolled up.

     

    More than happy to drop it, in fact if a mod can delete these last few posts.

     


    Ah man, carry on with it, it’s not doing any harm. Like I said, I’m just in a grouchy mood as I’ve got a headache.

    Well, @Triple A just scored one 4.5. I don't like a 5 or a 10 point system, 5 isn't enough and 10 is too much and has no center. So people start to use half points, 3.5 etc.

     

    1 - total crap devoid of any merit

    2 - bad

    3 - It's not bad, but uninspiring and pointless

    4 - It's fine

    5 - Good, you should seek it out but if you get the chance it's worth the watch

    6 - Excellent, you should see this

    7 - Everyone should see this

    Ok, but the thread title says to rate the last film you watched out of 5?

     

    On the positive side, I suppose you got the bit of attention you were looking for!

  5. Everything everywhere all at once

     

    The new film from Daniel’s (Swiss Army Man). Saw this last night at the BFI IMAX followed by a Q&A with Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.

     

    Wow, what an incredible film this is. It’s just bonkers. A multiverse hopping, martial arts comedy drama with a a heavy dose of surrealism.

     

    The cast is amazing, but of particular note is Ke Huy Quan (of ‘Short Round’ and ‘Data’ fame) who just steals the show in my opinion. Really hoping this opens more doors for him going forward.

     

    Hollywood needs to sit up and take notice. They shot it in 8 weeks on a budget of $25 million, and roped in a load of friends and collaborators to take care of all the fight sequencing, special effects and music. The whole thing is just off the charts insane.

     

    5/5

    I should have said apart from those two, but my point still stands. So their roadmap for the first year after Infinite's release includes two new maps which is absolutely ridiculous.

     


    Yeah, and if you don’t like big team battle it’s basically one new map. Mind boggling.

    Exactly that, and it makes the traversing even more terrifying and exciting when there's a very real chance of it all going to hell. Even Aunty Nasty was getting vertigo and nausea whenever I spun the camera around in Haligtree. I just love that feeling of complete terror and panic subsiding when you get to safe ground. It's so addictive and of course the great Michael Zaki knows this.

     

    I thought the lighting and architectural/structural design on both Haligtree and Crumbling Farum were extraordinary. It felt like every view was considered and framed like something from a movie or concept art still. Everything is refined and executed with tremendous amounts of care and detail. The engravings, mouldings and statues are phenomenal works of art in their own right, Haligtree in particular is staggering. I spent ages looking around at the art and trying to figure out its meanings. And all completely optional. Madness.

     

    I prefer the game when Torrent is unavailable.


    What blew my mind, and I’m sure it’s probably already been mentioned…

     

    Spoiler

    …is that all those random chunks of architecture littered around the landscape are pieces of Farum Azula that have fallen from the sky. Amazing!

     

  8. If you consider any gameplay in Infinite that could be regarded as decent, I just feel you could just go and play a previous, better Halo game instead.

     

    I find the entire game pointless. I don’t even think the grapple helps to set it apart that much. In combat it’s overpowered, and from a traversal perspective it’s hardly ever a necessity.

     

    The only saving grace for Infinite was the multiplayer, and the amount of content available for that since day one is frankly laughable.

    200 hours and I still have new areas to look forward to. This is the single greatest entertainment experience of my life.


    Yep, and it’s a sizeable and awesome section as well!

     

    With regards to comments made about it being a bit of a boss rush towards the end, I’m not sure that’s necessarily the case. I mean, it can be if you tackle things in a certain order, but it’s also possible to still have areas to explore in-between.

    It is an absolutely staggering quantity of work.  Like the sheer effort to design and create it all does boggle my mind. 


    It is, and I’m pretty sure it’s made possible by the fact that they don’t reinvent the wheel for each game, and instead reiterate on what’s come before.

     

    For me, I would still place Demons and Dark 1 over this, partly because they’re the games that set this whole genre in motion, but also because of how dense and tightly designed they are, especially Dark Souls. Elden Ring in comparison is crazy in its size and scope, but suffers a bit because of that in my opinion, at times it just feels a bit too big. Also as I’ve said before, I think it would benefit greatly from some light gating to make the progression smoother.

     

    It’s still a solid 9.5 though ;)

    I thought there was going to be more to Volcano Manor

     

      Reveal hidden contents

    I took a trip earlier via one of those enemies and assumed it was going to be a dungeon I had only seen a small part of once I had escaped. But it seems like the manor itself is just a few rooms. I've joined them so I can get some more side quests since I've read it doesn't make any difference to the story but is there no more to it than that? The journey to it was so long I assumed the manor itself would be more substantial. Or maybe I just have to think of it as the mountain itself being the dungeon in a sense

    NG++ even, just finished the NG+ run.

    Hate is a strong word. I think it's mediocre/average (some parts are spectacularly good, some parts are mindbogglingly bad), but overall, whatever. Definitely not doing multiple runs with different builds, this'll be uninstalled as soon as the Plat pops.


    Erm…

  13. I’m at over 150 hours on the clock and I’m guessing nearing the end, but I’m not overly keen on the backloading of really hard bosses. At this point in the journey I should be on a giddy power trip after all the character levelling and weapon upgrading, but then I meet an enemy that moves stupidly fast and can two-shot me and it takes the wind out of my sails a bit. I’m not expecting a walk in the park, don’t get me wrong, but I also don’t fancy another boss that takes me 50 attempts.

     

    I would say overall it’s either been crazy hard or stupidly easy. I imagine trying to strike a good balance in a game of this scope and size must be one of the biggest challenges they face though.
