  1. From the beta, all the character interactions were predictably painful, but IIRC it was front loaded with them and there wasn't much once you really got stuck in to the game.
  2. Oh man, if you liked the Bad Batch, you'll love The Clone Wars, at least some of it. It's patchy, but the good ones are dynamite. There's plenty of episode guides out there, it's well worth taking in the main arcs before watching the last season. The last 4 episodes in particular are as good as Star Wars gets. If you get through them, Rebels is waiting for you. Rebels is superb once it finds its feet. I'm watching it again with the kids at the moment and it's honestly my favourite star wars stories outside of the OT. Great main characters, great stories, great jedi stuff, great space battles, really great baddies. I love it.
  3. Nope, work away. I'm in Ireland and am a supporter.
  4. Yep. I bounced off Paradise, loved 3 & Revenge, but chaining boosts in Burnout 2 was one of the most intense things i've ever experienced.
  5. I think he's already said that he might be up for it. Time is a great healer. So is money.
  6. Sorry, I don't understand this post. What do you mean?
  7. I thought this was I N C R E D I B L E ! A beautiful, wonderful, engrossing experience that had me beaming throughout. It's barely a "game" at all, and I don't care. It is neither a platform game or a rhythm action game. It uses those mechanics as a means of self expression as opposed to completing a task. It's why it's simple simon style instead of rhythm action as @metallicfrodo says. The loose requirements for the simple simon bit allows you to play with the timing and make it your own. Same with the platforming, it's not about making it from A to B, it's about letting loose on the way, jumping, pumping your fist, sliding and wailing. I'll allow this as a criticism - I thought it was great but I have a tolerance for noodling that is more or less infinite. And so amazing looking! I must have taken 50 screenshots.
  8. Thanks for the heads up! I'm still doing the time trial pretty much every day as well. It's a wonderful game. I was hankering for ghosts also - I can usually get top 200, but I think most of the top players are just very efficient. Tighter spins, shortest route possible. I generally do one acceptable run without any glaring errors, then I can shave off a second or two by just going faster. Multiple taps to suck the thing in closer to the anchor helps sometimes.
  9. I talk to my kids about games like I talk to anyone about games. I like to know what they like and why, and I tell them why I like or don't like whatever games. They're both keen fortnite players. I don't really like the battle royale type of game, but I like watching them play, sometimes I help them with challenges, or play creative games with them. I have a picture of my daughter celebrating her first victory royale and i'm honestly bursting with pride thinking about it. We usually watch the season closer events and big in-game gigs as a family! I think the whole fortnite ecosystem is exploitative but also amazing. It's so ... comprehensive or something. It's huge. It's been mostly positive - they play with school friends, make new friends, learn how to co-operate. Sometimes there's blazing rows about it, but that's family life. They do play other games - my daughter plays animal crossing and my son has put hours and hours into lego games. He unlocked every minifigure in one of the marvel games, which . Also shitty iphone games with ads, but honestly I quite like some of them too.
  10. I've just had bit of a look on reddit, and the 40k fans are positively gushing about him also.
  11. I couldn't give a monkey's about goblins and wizards, but I love Feral & Foe. The writing is so snappy. I'm not a huge fan of Whedon style banter either, but if it's good, it's good. Dan Abnett is a genius, he's done so many modern classics - Sinister Dexter, Brink, Grey Area, Lawless, The Out, Insurrection. Not to mention creating the current version of Guardians of the Galaxy for Marvel, which turned out pretty well for them...Maybe a bit of an exaggeration to say he's carrying 2000AD, but he's not far off it.
  12. I think it's fucking brilliant, honestly. The shape of the story.
  13. There was a bit of chat about this in the Dredd thread in Film & TV from about this point: I posted:
