  1. This was the cute knitted Fall Guy they gave to me when I left Mediatonic:
  2. Let’s face it, it won’t be as good as Ponyo.
  3. I never thought a documentary about Rubik’s Cubes would make me cry, and yet here we are.
  4. It’s directed by gonzo filmmaker Takashi Miike of Ichi the Killer and Audition fame. Given the source material and amount of batshit Yakuza films he’s made in the past, you’d expect this to be a match made in heaven, but it’s sadly more like a fairly anonymous DTV action movie. His Phoenix Wright movie wasn’t much better. It’s a shame as if anyone were to lean into both series underlying weirdness you’d think it’d be him.
  5. I think they might be underestimating how many people are still too scared to go back to the cinemas, even now.
  6. Galaxy Quest is pretty lean too - I think Dean Parisot just subscribes to the less is more theory of comedy movies, and given the trend towards Apatow-bloat in recent years, I think it’s a good move.
  7. I watched The Amulet last night which has had some good reviews. Also features Imelda Staunton, which made me think it must have had at least a good script. Reader, it was fucking bobbins.
  8. Mostly budgeting, planning, leading the team, dealing with inter-personal relationships, and really being prepared to do anything it takes to keep the ball rolling - you’re basically the Coach, Quarterback and Cheerleader all rolled into one. On Fall Guys I spent a lot of time discussing the controls with the team, talking about how tight the controls on Nintendo platformers are, we spent a lot of time thinking about the backstory (last year we’d decided it was essentially the outer space version of Gladiators, filmed in the intergalactic equivalent of the Birmingham NEC, but I’m not sure if any of that made the actual game). I was also really keen on having a dive button in the game, which was definitely there when I left, but I don’t know if it’s still in there now.
  9. It’s not Free Guy that’s been sold, it’s their next film, a time travel comedy about a guy teaming up with his teenage self.
  10. I paid for mine. But I love a good haggle in real life too. To the extent where when I name my salary for new jobs, I always try and push it as far as I can, and I get really disappointed if they don’t try and haggle me down.
  11. Arise from your grave! Just wrote an article about this for Eurogamer: ‪https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-07-17-the-double-a-team-how-the-mark-of-kri-set-the-stage-for-batman
  12. I thought it was quite remarkable how late into production some of the story and musical breakthroughs came. Amazing they managed to make it work as well as they did in the end. Although I still don't think they ever quite cracked Ahtohallan.
