  1. Some guy I was on with last night was on 67! Obviously I’m only running Atheon CP at this point, with a load of other sad cunts who see some weird value in ‘owning’ a digital weapon in a game I barely play anymore, but if I had to do a whole raid? 67 times? Nah, that shit is broken.
  2. My allotted 20 minutes of Destiny a week complete with attempt 44 of VoG and still no Vex. This is just plain abuse at this point right?
  3. Kermode’s already ruined it as it couldn’t possibly live up to the level of excitement he had for it. Or maybe it could, I’m looking forward to it nonetheless. Speaking of going in cold…… New Order @ZOK kindly recommend this for me yesterday and so thought, why not, never heard of it but worth a punt. Turns out it is one of the most brutal and distressing films I’ve seen in quite some time. I mean, I read the blurb and wasn’t exactly expecting the Lego Movie but fuck me… I liked it though. Veered a bit too close to exploitation and some heavy-handedness on occasion but ultimately it was well done with a couple of sympathetic leads and some great performances. 3.5/5
  4. At this stage, I would just wait for the next-gen update. Just a hunch but I suspect it will come with extra content and possibly some adjustments to the UI and systems. They did a similar thing with W3 and fuck only knows they’ve had an extra 18 months by the time it comes out (Feb/Marchish time). Think they know this needs to be special. By all means pick it up now though as it’s pretty cheap. Update is free when it comes.
  5. Swampy levels where you are poisoned and need to stand on a dry bit for a while or eat some kind of plant to take the poison effect away. Yes, I’m looking at you From Soft.
  6. thanks for this heads-up. There’s loads on MUBI I want to see. Like….. Censor 4/5 A companion piece of sorts to the equally compelling St Maud. Where that was an exploration of loneliness, this does the same with grief. Fantastic central performance from Niamh Algar who is quickly turning in to a real star. A beautifully sleazy turn from Michael Smiley too and the 80s set design is a real nostalgia hit. Recommended. ….and Anette and High Life which I haven’t seen yet and then Petite Maman is on there in Feb so can catch that too.
  7. Yeah, I loved the music. A somnambulant drone that really evoked a sense of dread. Soon as I started twatting things with my sword, the jank was real.
  8. Yep, I’m definitely interested in this, particularly after listening to Adam Buxton’s podcast with Patrick Radden Keefe who also wrote a book on the Opioid crisis. I just not had a chance to catch it yet and will likely end up waiting to binge it.
  9. Fiesta was fun for a few rounds last night. Completely unbalanced but thats OK, it swings back and forth, but when you get the hammer and a sniper.....oh baby! I've barely had a chance to play with some of the power weapons like the sniper and it was fun to just try them out in a competitive game. Just taking out a weakened banshee with a single snipe feels good.
  10. It’s Aldi Souls based on the half hour I gave it. The combat felt janky to me, none of the grace of a From game. It has a weird dodge/roll mechanic assigned to the same button and it was all very….green. The hardening mechanic was interesting and the music was a foreboding drone that I really dug. I fancied something to fill the void until Elden Ring gets here but just made me miss the real thing even more. I’ll give it another go but I may just play Demons Souls again.
  11. Can I get a shout out for the way you instantly go in to a sprint when you respawn? Such a great little touch. That’s all.
  12. I’ve watched a couple of episodes and it’s intriguing and fun in all the ways Korean horror usually is. But…. the demons just look so naff. Like CGI test footage from Ed Norton’s Hulk movie. Will keep watching though, it’s still lots of fun and VERY violent.
  13. Are all modes crossplay? Generally doing OK against seemingly well-matched opponents with a rock solid ping but then eveyr few games I'm encountering some lunatic with pin-point headshot accuracy which just screams PC player. I know ranked just says 'crossplay' with no option to change but I can't see an option to restrict to XB in settings. Still loving this by the way. Ridiculous fun.
  14. Haven’t actually tried it for ages but either should be fine. I guess buying credit might reduce the chances of your bank getting sus about someone using your card in Turkey.
  15. Converts to about £21 on the Turkish Xbox Black Friday sale. Will take the plunge at that price.
  16. Few abilities buffs and nerfs incoming. Nothing too major here https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/50829
  17. I’m away with work and really want to play Halo, so I’m sitting in a hotel room, bored, a bit pissed and adding some of you lot from the Xbox app. GT is Mooselizer
  18. This is orders of magnitude more fun than D2 PvP, it’s not even funny. One game of Crucible and I’m questioning my own existence but I’ve been enjoying the shit out of this. GT is Mooselizer if anyone sees me on.
  19. Mortal Shell may go some way to satisfying my hankering for a Dark Souls-a-like whilst I wait for Elden Ring. In between Halo and Forza obviously....because I've got loads of spare gaming time to fill at the moment
  20. All the special abilities and items are pickups. There’s a dash thingy and a one-way barrier thingy and probably some other thingys I haven’t seen yet You start every round with a the rifle and pistol as does everyone. It’s very refreshing to just be on an even field from the start of a round.
  21. OK, couple of hours later and I’m still shit but I’m now shit with a premium battle pass. I think I like the 24 player modes. There’s enough headless chickening going on to get a few kills. It’s definitely got the one more go factor for sure but the battle pass levelling is sloooooow.
  22. I’m just terrible. Been playing Destiny for about 6 years and I come bottom every single time. I’ve never improved and I’m getting worse. My brain just doesn’t work as fast as everyone else’s in online shooters anymore. The last Halo MP I played to any length was Halo 3 but I was a sprightly 34 back then. Gonna be 50 next year, my dog could do a better job than me. Genuinely looking forward to the campaign though. The few weapons I tried feel really good and the grapple hook thingy was fun.
  23. We’ll, it’s slick and fast and guns feels great. Only took one match to realise why I can’t play any more. I’m. Fucking. Awful. Looking forward to the campaign.
