  1. All I wanna do is soar through the air, smash my knees into some dude's face and scream "GRAND UPPPPPPAH!" as I uppercut them into next year.
  2. I don't think it quite nailed the landing but overall, I greatly appreciated what it was trying to do and am glad to have seen it. Plus, y'know, it just looked absurdly gorgeous throughout.
  3. One thing Kim’s got in her favour as far as Lalo goes is that the Salamancas seem at least to have respect for anyone with the balls to stand up to them, or really risk putting themselves out for them: Tuco with Walt, Hector with Mike, and Lalo with Nacho when he did his Spider-Man shit a few weeks back. Still, the tension going into next week’s finale is gonna be unbearable. Brilliant but unbearable.
  4. Oh lord, I can't handle that much tension, fucking hellfire. Even now, at this late stage, I have real trouble reconciling Jimmy with the odious slimeball who walked into Walt and Jesse's lives like he owned the place. The only way I see that happening now is if he drives Kim away for her own good, at which point he truly is free and off the leash. Well that or the other, more horrific and terrifying option but I can't see them doing *that* because Rhea Seehorn is the MVP and Kim is the absolute heart of the show. Amazing, captivating stuff. Oh and mega over Gus and Mike's chat about Nacho. Someone give that poor boy the hoover repairman's number for the love of God.
  5. While I've enjoyed Capcom's two recent remakes from the series, RE4 is one of those near perfect games that just doesn't need the same treatment nor would particularly benefit from it. The previous remakes went from fixed camera to an RE4 over the shoulder style perspective, what can really be done here differently to make it worth our while?
  6. Presumably if he said his name was Eduardo Salamanca the ABQ PD and DEA would realise they have a possible gang/cartel member on their hands and things would get even more awkward.
  7. They can't kill Lalo without stirring up reprisals from the cartel but they can't have him around either. They tried to get him out of the picture by getting him locked up but he's still able to keep in touch with his crew and direct them against Gus' operations. The only thing I can think of now is that must they figure if Lalo makes bail, he'll fuck off back to Mexico to let the heat die down for a while and that will get him out of Gus' hair for now. That said, I don't think that's how it actually will go down. Regardless, it blows my mind that Lalo can just blow off $7m like that.
  8. Yeah, this is some quality brainmelting stuff, and it looks oh so beautiful. Almost a shame there's just one episode left. I also thought Forest's bit about the cavepeople was interesting - 5000 years and seemingly nothing changed, no progress? That sounds like a fascinating little story in itself.
  9. I tried recently after watching the series but I just can't get into it. I find it incredibly hard to give a shit about these people and there was too much busywork going on for me to properly want to engage with it, it felt like a chore. I ended up re-playing Horizon: Zero Dawn again instead and had about a thousand times more fun.
  10. I don't think they're going to do Code Veronica now anyway but if they did, I'd like them to completely tear it apart. Open with us playing as Claire breaking into the French lab and doing all the John Woo stuff, then go to a smaller/tighter and heavily reworked version of the island. Cut out the backtracking padding, scrap/re-create Steve and Alfred anew from the ground up. Don't introduce Chris at all until the very end, where he shows up because he's been tracking Wesker (gets rid of the original plothole where Claire has been searching everywhere for Chris then tells Leon halfway through to email him for her..!) and we get an Alexa versus Wesker versus the Redfields Battle Royale. Anyone heard rumours on RE8? One bunch doing the rounds claim it was original set to be Revelations 3 but tested so well internally that it's been bumped up to full sequel status. Also something about witches and werewolves... Wait, what?
  11. Good lord, the animation for those fucks in the substation passing on their parasites is a hell of a thing.
  12. Oh yeah, I’d forgotten all about him in that. Wasn’t he Sarah’s ex? I miss Clone Club.
  13. Loving it but also terrified because I just picked up the fire hose and am heading to the donut shoppe with a sense of dread, and panicking over where to find the bolt cutters. Speaking of, do they open those locker/box padlocks too, because I simply must crack everything open, I want alllll the loot.
  14. We'll likely never know but I imagine it would have something to do with Pinochet's fuckawful regime.
  15. Underwater I have loads of films to watch but for some reason I'll end up checking out some rando new horror flick more often than not. Case in point. Kristen Stewart and Vincent Cassel are the leads and while some reviews might suggest it's Alien in the Drink or whatever, it's honestly got more in common with The Poseidon Adventure. An undersea drilling complex collapses and the last few survivors have to overcome numerous obstacles as they make their way to a far away section to escape back to the surface. Unlike a lot of similar such films, the crew all come over as good, decent folks instead of half of them at each other's throats. Yet despite a decent cast and some nice chunky diving suit designs (they could double up nicely as Warhammer-esque space marine suits with few tweaks) no one really shines and the film just plods along crossing off names one by one like hundreds of films before it, it's all so terribly, terribly average. Still, as a wise man once said..."fuck the ocean." 2 Kirsten Stewart peroxide buzzcuts/5
  16. I can't lie to you, I struggle to consider a game Outrun without it. Seeing the modern ports with generic non-brand red-o-car just feels completely wrong to me despite playing just as brilliantly. I'm not even a car person, per se but I just can't accept Outrun without the prancing horse and that insanely wide scarlet and black Testarossa back end (yeah, I never used anything else in Outrun 2 either!). I certainly wouldn't stand in the way of any of you getting a modern, Ferrari free version but I wouldn't be interested personally.
  17. Tsk, Mike was in Beverly Hills Cop! And ancient mafia mole show Wiseguy
  18. Oh man. We knew Jimmy was a lost cause and that things were only gonna get worse but the way Kim talked about Jimmy's new client as almost a challenge for him to overcome kind of suggests part of her is drawn to it too. Was cool/awful seeing Gus and Nacho going to work, I just adore that ugly little chicken shack for some reason. A fictional eatery I wish were real, go figure. Howard - Ugh, only 3 episodes left. Edit: Can't believe I forgot to mention Luftwaffles! Surely the greatest sounding place ever!
  19. Wow, Chapter 5 was a wonderful hour of telly, the use of music, the visuals, 'flashbacks' and multiversal differences, and that horrendously tense scene with Kenton and Jamie, all of it was just spellbinding. Katie can get fucked tho for shittalking the nice lady from Silent Witness mind.
  20. As someone who only respected rather than loved Half Life 2, everything I've seen and read of Half Life: Alyx screams a 10 to me. I was super sceptical when it was announced but everything I've seen of it looks mindblowingly immersive and wonderful. But no, can't upstage the latest Mm love-in, I guess.
  21. I just loved that a certain plot point can be easily summed up by:
  22. How about dat Dario Agger spread though? I may never sleep again.
  23. Oh god that was an uncomfortable watch. Jimmy's dead, Kim. Just GTFO now while you still can, pleeeeeeeeease. Also kinda amazing how something as ostensibly dry as a boardroom lawyer scene about a relatively minor land dispute could be so incredibly tense and stomach churning while other dramas throw kitchen sink high stakes around all over and are nowhere near as compelling.
