  1. Late rllmuk sentence of the year contender.
  2. You can install remotely via the Xbox website. Saw that on reddit and still seems to be the only way - mobile app doesn't work either.
  3. Yes. This is the Better Call Saul to Breaking Bad (analogically - not actually as good as BCS of course).
  4. I think it's gruelling but not gratuitous. It's not casually chucked in as plot device or ultraviolence, but instead a repeated and fundamental thematic and narrative element.
  5. I hope the pace stays exactly where it is. Of course it will be cathartic when it explodes into action, but the real joy is in the slow burn. Reminiscent of Breaking Bad season 3 or The Sopranos season 4 in a very good way.
  6. Intriguing. Have you got the 2OE scene number?

    IMMORTALITY

    I've nothing against the genres, but it feels harsh to "reduce" this to interactive movie/VN. The video scrubbing controls made me feel like I was "playing" this more than, to name a recent example, As Dusk Falls. That control gave it a lot of its creepiness for me.
  8. It was 6+ hours for me to see the credits so just keep going everywhere. It is a bit luck of the draw, but actually I preferred it being more roundabout as I understood a lot more by the time I got there.

    IMMORTALITY

    I did feel less control compared to Her Story, where the player input - video clip output mechanism was deterministic rather than the slightly more random feeling nature of this.
  10. I'm going without spoilers given the thread title. At one point the male entity, I think after being killed by the female entity in the subverted version of the Marissa killing Carl scene, says something along the lines of her never having watched him die before, so I'm not sure about the constant killing of each other. I don't think the poisoning in the final scene theory is correct. There are earlier clips from the 2OE shoot showing Marissa having nosebleeds, as well as the one where both her and John pass out at the same time. Likewise it being the final disposable of her body. After Amy burns her, the body seems to fall apart like it is a doll e.g. it is another construct that has temporarily held that spirit after being fed upon. I think the female entity is now moving on. I'm not sure, however, whether this is having still failed to find fulfilment in yet another muse/model for an artist role or whether her co-authorship as John/Marissa combined gave her some satisfaction.
  11. The game is co-written by the man who was original writer of Wild at Heart and the screenwriter for Lost Highway. Also the irony of "pour over the footage and anything will fit" just before your hagiography of David Lynch...
  12. As much as the end result didn't quite work, there's more merit in the thought process and intent there than fault in the outcome.
  13. It's decent and accessible for a now and again blast.
  14. If you're like me you try to learn the wind up animation then get thrown by the kanji and noise and just mash whatever.
