  1. I’ve been having a good time with this but couldn’t really see where the 10/10s were coming from… then I stumbled into The Depths.
  2. They’ve done that a few times.
  3. I must’ve been 12 years old at least, but this weirdly nasty bit in the otherwise benign Jurassic Park 3 (near the end of the clip): Watching it back now it doesn’t have the same effect, but it does go on a beat too long for comfort and the actress’s reaction is pretty intense.
  4. After watching that I went down a rabbit hole of Advance Wars Let’s Plays and had an extremely strong Pavlovian reaction to Andy’s theme tune so I guess I’m getting this.
  5. This is a good time, not the best in its class (some of the humour *really* doesn’t land) but silly and energetic and likeable. Simon was my favourite. Can’t believe that’s not a real English accent.
  6. “Even Super Mario superfans might prefer the game” - like there was a chance they’d like the tie-in movie *more* than the game they’re supposedly a superfan of?
  7. Definitely feels like a reaction to the current drag-queens-grooming-children fuss. Good old Rusty.
  8. Tom Hanks springs to mind as someone who is reliably brilliant in starring roles but flounders when he tries to play a “character” part
  9. It's a bit "we've got Baby One More Time at home" but I love everything about this:
  10. I hope there’ll actually be good reasons to create wacky vehicles in the game, and it won’t just be like chopping down trees to cross gaps where there was no point in doing it after the plateau. Moan moan moan. Day 1 obviously.
  11. The only thing I have to say about watershed games-as-art moments here is that this came out the same year as Papers Please.
  12. Does Super Mario 64 run a bit faster on Switch than my PAL copy would’ve done in 1996? It feels a little twitchier but maybe I’m just getting old. It’s still an absolute delight to play. Who would’ve thought it would age this well?
  13. Oh no, who let Will Smith back in?
  14. I had a great time with the Trial. It was probably one of my favourite bits of the game in all honesty.
  15. I wouldn’t normally listen to fAn ThEoRiEs but this seems pretty convincing to me.
  16. Perfect Dark. I was all set to buy it when it came out until my mum suddenly changed her mind and decided that a twelve-year-old probably shouldn’t be playing an 18-rated game, a shockingly traitorous volte-face that truthfully I’ve never quite forgiven her for. Now I’m 34 and I guess I COULD play it but ehhh the moment’s kinda gone.
  17. How spoilery are the spoilers? on a scale from “Midna kills Fi in Clock Town using the Minish Cap” to “there are gorons in the game”
