  1. 30/07 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge Ended up waiting a month so I could get the physical edition, such is how little faith I had that the license wouldn't suddenly disappear. Something I think eventually happened with the Turtles in Time Remake. All I can say is, give DotEmu all the old scrolling beat em up licenses. Simpsons, X-Men, Final Fight.....have them all because after SOR4 and this it's clear they have a kack for it. Great music (honestly, fighting while Wu Tang plays in the background is weird and amazing), nice visuals and it plays super well with enough content for multiple playthroughs. The only minor gripes I have are that post respawn there seems to be zero invincibility frames, a number of times I just spawned and got hit immediately, secondly is just my usual pet peeve of flying enemies being a pain in the arse. Other than that though, totally radical bodacious......cowabunga? 8/10
  2. Jeff Grubb in a nutshell. And people on GB fawn over him. Video games are in desperate need of some more actual investigative journalists.
  3. I'll always remember him from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.
  4. They were very careful there not to show Ezra Miller's face in that trailer.
  5. Was Donnie Yen blocking gunshots with a sword???
  6. How dare you mention this film alongside the masterclass of Commando.
  7. 23/07 - Hotel Dusk: Room 215 Rebuying a 3DS means I've been rebuying all the classic, and not so classic stuff, I can find on the cheap. Nabbed this for about £4 from eBay which is honestly a bargain. I played it years ago when it first came out and remember enjoying it. Decade later and it still holds up. A real innovate way of using the DS hardware. Holding it on its side adding to the alrerady novel-like style of the game. Your former detective character finding himself in a Hotel where a nunch of guests have mysteries that need solving. It's your standard DS game full of quirky and gimmicky ways of using the touch screen, yet it's thre story that keeps you playing. Brilliantly written with great, fleshed out characters and a unique art style. Only main downside is that it has "Game Over" states that can be annoying when the checkpoints are less frequent than you'd want. 7/10
  8. I stand corrected. It's been a while since I've seen them and just knew it was one of them that gave me a headache with the wobbly action camera.
  9. Can they though? Winter Soldier and Civil War they could, but here? That opening fight sequence was badly lit and impossible to follow, same with most of the others I've seen so far. It's almost like at times we were slowly digressing to Bourne Identity levels of shakiness.
  10. I'm guessing the 200 million budget didn't go on the CGI. There's a plane sequence in this that looked better in Uncharted 3. It's no wonder Netflix is in the shit when they spend that sort of money on this.
  11. Zack Snyder really is just a social media cult leader.
  12. Yes. Kinda. Also an event from RE5 happened at the very least....
  13. Zero Time Dilemma (PS4) And so the Zero Escape trilogy comes to a conclusion, not with a bang, but a whimper. I loved 999 and Virtues Last Reward, but right from the start something felt off with the way the whole game was structured. The story fragmentation (Fragments as they are called in-game) just don't feel connected in a way the standard flow chart did in Virtues Last Reward. I know there's a way to view a standard Flowchart in the game, but it's not presented as the main way you're supposed to view the timeline so barely looked at it. And when I did, I was equally as confused. By the time the game reached it's conclusion I was just bored by the story and found myself looking at my phone more than I probably should've. I liked the returning characters, the new ones didn't really do it for, Eric and Mira were especially irritating and terrible. While I'm not against using guides for help, in this game I ended up using that more in the Story sections as opposed to the Escape stuff. Some story segments locked off and I couldn't figure out why. The game throws a million passwords at you so you're forced to write everything down (or take photos of the screen in my case), there was just too much of everything when it came to the story. The balance also seemed off with what felt like the last quarter of the game having zero puzzle rooms, going full in on story and decision making. On the plus side, I did like the Telltale style they used for the graphics, which I understand is a controversial statement for fans of the series. A generous 6/10.
  14. Episode 7 is absolutely batshit. Yes, embrace the stupidity of the franchise!
  15. Incredible stuff. I've only ever seen the beta stuff in screenshots, seeing it moving is wow.
  16. I feel like people who call this "a CW television show" have never actually watched anything from the CW, maybe only seeing brief clips and the occasional screen capture. I mean, aside from it featuring a fairly young, attractive cast in the leads, there's nothing else CW about it.
  17. I love how utterly shit the main villain in the future sections looks.
  18. Kinda like the two episodes I've seen. Enjoy the Lance Reddick timeline more than the future one though. Felt like it would be better if it just told that story leading to the eventual downfall of New Racoon City. But then I find the movie series to be one of the greatest cinematic achievements in history.
  19. Well they didn't do a good job of explaining that in the bloody movies. I just assumed it was because Peter kept saying names of people he wanted to remember his Spiderman identity.
  20. That happened once when I was trying to watch the Beavis and Butthead movie. I quit out, restarted and it then worked. It was my TV app and it seems a little buggy.
  21. A few days removed and the more I think about it, the more I think I hate this film? That spoiler sums up my main issue. I think my days of seeing these films in the cinema may be done. Aside from Spider-Man, these last batch of Marvel films have been "poor" to "alright".
  22. Not to worry. He also directed another film that is highly regarded, not just the dogshit one they mention.
