  1. Looks similar to the original Mass Effect but without that morish sci-fi gloss Mass Effect got away with a huge amount of fairly average content by having a lovely consistent look and feel, some wonderfully atmospheric music and some (but not all) interesting characters. It's far too early to tell how Starfield will turn out, but I feel very differently to how I felt when first seeing Mass Effect.
  2. No, he was fired for giving Kane and Lynch a 6.
  3. 🕹 High Score Day #76 - https://highscoreday.com Maybe should have got 3 but still don't recognise the screenshot despite finishing the game. 5....never heard of.
  4. The other thing I picked up on which I found very distracting was the American pronunciation of Risotto. Ris oh toe. Stop it.
  5. Best the series has been since the first, I really enjoyed that. The story with max, Dustin, Steve and co was the best they've done and easily the highlight of this series. Episode 4, as mentioned multiple times, was downright brilliant. When shows like this split the cast up to do different things it always feels awkward pacing wise, and season four definitely suffered here. The editing between one story to the next was weirdly jarring and other than the final reveal, the stories didn't feel particularly connected. I'm sure it'll all come together though. The Russia plot was ok and the characters were good (one thing this series gets right nearly every time, credit where it's due), but it's another story where the outcome is inevitable so just get on with it. At least I got to play, "where was he from again?" with the Russian guard (answer - Thrones). The same goes for the Will, Mike and Jonathan story, which was one of the weaker elements but it did have one legitimately great moment in the house. Jane's story took a while to get going and also suffered from an inevitable conclusion so I felt like I just watched hours of her looking sad, but the payoff was very well done. Bad guy was great, also love the sound effect of the clock, which triggered the tension every time. Made me think they could have called this Silent Hill and nearly get away with it. Looking forward to the second part to see where this goes. Small nod to the soundtrack too, Kate Bush obviously, but it was a bit freaky hearing Musical Youth play a number of times considering they headlined in our towns summer festival just last weekend.
  6. 🕹 High Score Day #75 - https://highscoreday.com Huh maybe should have got 2 with the hundreds of hours put in, but I didn't know you could do that.
  7. 🕹 High Score Day #74 - https://highscoreday.com Need to hand in my gaming membership for not getting 3 & 4.
  8. This would be great news for us. We missed out on the hot wheels dlc in FH3 when they removed it from sale, so I'd welcome another stab at it.
  9. Did it on my next try. The law of forums is real. Now onto the final boss.
  10. I have the +2 talisman but that's it, also same for fire. No special armour and no items either. I can avoid most of the dive-bombs but the rapid disappear/ reappear does me quite often. When it does the appear and side swipe it's easy to dodge, but occasionally it seems to do a down swipe that I can't seem to roll away from. There's no one aspect of the fight that's consistently getting me, I'm just taking too many silly hits and churning through my flasks until there's nothing left. Summons aren't being too helpful on this fight either, they can't cope with the lightning.
  11. I'm sharing your pain, can't do the last fight or Dragonlord whatshisface. Stupid whatshisface.
  12. 🕹 High Score Day #72 - https://highscoreday.com Should have got 5.
  13. 🕹 High Score Day #70 - https://highscoreday.com Right series wrong game.
  14. I did not. Another 10 attempts and many close calls, but not quite. Not sure why I'm finding this so difficult as each attack is quite easy to avoid.
  15. Gah, don't you hate it when you know you should be able to do a boss but you keep getting caught out by cheap shots and poorly timed rolls. I my case it's Dragonlord whatshisface. I just want to smash him so I can move through to the next area. All his moves are so telegraphed but I still get wiped out when he goes a little mad in phase 2. PS - I'm only posting this to channel the Law of Forums, when you post that something is difficult and then complete it on your next try.
  16. 🕹 High Score Day #68 - https://highscoreday.com
  17. 🕹 High Score Day #67 - https://highscoreday.com Oh god can't believe I missed 3. The shame! Five I had no idea.
  18. 🕹 High Score Day #66 - https://highscoreday.com I should have got all of those.
  19. So this was the film that brought me back to the cinema post-covid. I chose well.

  21. If this game didn't have summons I'd have bounced off ages ago. I'm not interested in a punishing difficulty with no tools to progress other than keep practicing. I don't have the time for that any more! Tonight I did Melenia! Yay! Probably the most attempts on a boss since Rom the wanker spider in Bloodborne. I think this boss is BS quite frankly and I never want to see her again. I did resort to summoning a human and letting them take the agro, but a wins a win and I'll take that. I also beat the Beast Man, though this one was pretty much on my own. Took a few attempts and it came down to the wire on my successful run. The horse sentinel thing patrolling outside the fog door won't get a good performance review, letting me run by like that and then kill the boss. Just the Dragonlord to go, which I got one hit away from killing just now, and then I'll go back to the story. So close now...
  22. I think it struggles to know who it wants to appeal to. Most of the references went right over my kids heads (10 and 7), and even the characters they recognise were saying/ doing things they didn't get. There are whole scenes and even characters whose joke only works if you grew up in the 90s/ early 2000s. As an adult there are a handful of smirks but nothing too funny, and as a kid my kids were mostly perplexed though a few gags made them laugh. I did enjoy it largely because I watched the cartoon growing up, and the film has a heart of gold and clearly made with love, the plot is actually pretty good with some clever little touches along the way. But throughout I couldn't shake the fact it was failing to really land with any audience.
  23. 🕹 High Score Day #64 - https://highscoreday.com Pfft. Not even heard of 2 and 4.
  24. 🕹 High Score Day #62 - https://highscoreday.com Right series wrong game.
  25. Same! I then switched my guess when the entry didn't appear.
