  1. I'm generally not a fan of 'reviving' properties, it's rare that they capture the magic of the original run. However, if there was one show I would love to see get a continuation, it would have to be Hannibal. I loved all 3 seasons and was particularly enamoured with its own adaptation of Red Dragon, and would eagerly anticipate seeing that team take on both Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal.
  2. Can't be bothered bumping the eShop thread, but other forum fave title Lair of the Clockwork God is currently 70% off.
  3. I have room in my heart for both. I get a great deal of joy from big smashy monster bash, but always appreciate a flick that can offer some commentary. Shin Godzilla really excelled in the latter for me; I know it is highly specific of Japanese bureaucracy in its portrayal, but many of those traits can be found in our government and of the governments of other places I've lived. It's a film that really 'got' how to present humans in these films. scrambling around trying to reconcile how our world works with the appearance of an otherwordly presence like the G-Man. Humour being derived from the
  4. I thought Shin Godzilla was incredible. Had a double take when I saw people here poo-pooing it.
  5. Big fan of the run of 'original' Bond games we got in the 2000's. Agent Under Fire and Nightfire are solid FPS's, Everything or Nothing is a great title (and I'm glad they used that template for From Russia With Love) and I heard positive things about some of the later games that came out in the 360 era which I never played myself. There's a pretty good Youtube channel that focuses almost exclusively on tie-in games, finding ones that are surprisingly good. Fair warning, the thumbnails are pretty awful and don't advertise the content well: https://www.youtube.com/c/mini
  6. Also just classic action game finale. Build up the biggest, most extravagant spectacle, then the true final fight is minimalist by comparison but steeped in drama and stakes. That final BURST
  7. Chakravartin is peak boss design and staging.
  8. Given that Asura has a penchant for growing extra arms, I was always assuming that he and his ilk regenerated body parts
  9. See I still really enjoyed the anime shorts, however I did get them after playing the game through fully. It's also likely influenced by my love for the Animatrix, where I welcome weird creative offshoots from a property.
  10. Welcome to my life after Yakuza 0 came out. Okay, maybe not as far as shit, but massively disappointing.
  11. I say get the SF DLC. Frankly I'd recommend it purely as it's more Asura's Wrath, and scratches an itch that no other game can. If there is a bundle available you may as well get episodes 11.5 and 14.5 too. They are literally animated short films with button prompts but once again, the style is unparalleled. 11.5 in particular is an absolute visual feast. Or I dunno, Youtube them. Of course, you then miss out in the joy of yelling out BURST. :p
  12. I must say, I was surprised by just how gay the game is. Love it, all about the gay agenda.
  13. The Street Fighter DLC is a delightful post-script to the game. Some playful references and once again the scale is outrageous. There's a very fun callback to the Augus fight in the Ryu episode and the ending to Akuma's is genuinely hilarious.
  14. The loss of arcades is also the loss of mystery/surprise to me. Up until the late 90's going to an arcade (especially if on holiday) would always mean the discovery of a new game, made even more memorable if it had some unique controller setup. Ttrips I have no true recollection of, but the vague memory flashes by of discovering both X-Men Versus Street Fighter and House of the Dead 3 for the first time, mesmerised by those cabinets. A holiday to a Pontins being my first witnessing of The Simpsons Arcade. Seeing Soul Edge completely reshaping what a video game could look like to me. Not just t
