  1. I think they must be adapting the structure quite a lot if it's to be split into two films, the second of which hasn't even been filmed yet. The book is split into three volumes but it's not like there's any kind of 'blowing up the Death Star moment' partway through that could make a satisfying conclusion by itself, so if it was very faithful it would definitely feel like half a story.
  2. Remind me: does buying stuff in the sale by using credit gained from reward points count towards getting the 4,000 points reward for spending £30 in the sale? I’m pretty sure it does.
  3. I'm not keen on survival mode but the new characters are excellent. I'm currently replaying the story stages on Mania with Max and will do them all again with Shiva and Estel.
  4. Yeah just tried Streets of Rage IV again on my Mac (wired connection). Very impressive picture quality but a clear feeling of about 100ms input delay. The stage took a decent time to load so I'm not convinced it was a Series X.
  5. Merged the threads, retaining the Simpsons reference.
  6. Sounds decent: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-07-21-aliens-fireteam-elite-is-actually-very-fun I'm up for it.
  7. Looks a bit like No Man's Sky.
  8. Vice City was three console generations and 20 years ago. I think you could argue that GTA works better doing ever more impressive renditions of the most iconic US cities rather than taking the Assassins Creed route and ending up with GTA 1950s San Diego or something. Vice City on PS5 would be an entirely different experience to Vice City on PS2.
  9. It’s part of the sacred timeline, presumably preferable to the alternatives that Immortus had experienced.
  10. Do you think there was a discussion in the TVA about who should go and prune the variant Thanos who left the timeline in Endgame, and they all just quietly agreed that 'that's the way it's supposed to be'?
  11. I'm not really sure how the branches happen. I assumed it was in response to time travellers (which is how the Loki variant we follow in this series was created), but are they just all possible outcomes from every decision made by free-willed beings, in the classic multiverse theory? In which case the amount of agents the TVA need to keep things in check presumably far outweights the total number of sentient beings in the universe.
  12. This is precisely what I did. Coming at the end of a series which seemed purpose-designed not to have any wider ramifications (we’re not even watching “our” Loki, and anything can be erased at the drop of a time grenade), which in itself rounds off a trilogy of TV series that have conditioned us not to expect too much, it didn’t even occur to me that I was watching some major event. It just seemed like some regular bad dude rambling on who would likely be stopped by the end of the episode, as usually happens.
