  1. Watch a trailer on YouTube!
  2. Maybe I'm weird, but I find that when I see the higher poly characters I start to notice the absence of things like facial animation. And the higher resolution textures on the environment look out of place on the low detailed geometry. I, weirdly, think the original looks better!
  3. I've had some speedy responses to my support requests on the Shield controller issues, to be fair to them. No solution yet, but a decent dialogue. Which is nice
  4. Tried this out on my Nvidia Shield today. Not a great first impression as controller functionality is all over the place. Works ok on most "computer" games but arcade games are unplayable as Insert Coin and Start are on the same button and first button push doesn't start the game; only the second push starts the game.. which also inserts a second coin, so you always start in 2-player mode. Galaga doesn't recognise my controller inputs at all either. Thought I'd go to their discord server linked from their website, to get some support, but the link is a 404/the server
  5. Thanks for the tip on the film. It's available for streaming from my local Library's collection it seems
  6. Rg351v is just about to release! GB form and 640x480 screen are the main draws.
  7. My wife and I have a weekly appointment trawling through the collection of awful diaster films by The Asylum and the like. Plenty of comet/earthquake/hurricane/tsunami crap
  8. Was the Buster Crabbe one tongue in cheek? Crappy and cheesy as hell, but I didn't think that was deliberate
  9. Plastic dinosaurs, both are fun. Whatevs
  10. Some films we watched recently All the classic Herbie films Lots of the Ray Haryhausen films (Jason and the Argonauts, Sinbad, Land that time forgot etc) Police Squad/Airplane/Naked Gun series (the risque parts go over their heads) Last Starfighter Goonies Tron
  11. I got confused by that at various times. I had to scroll back through the ep to figure it out. This other, rather similar-looking, bridge-crew member with black hair seems to have appeared in the last couple of episodes. But the blonde one one (google tells me she's called Lt. Nilsson) is still there too. Does anyone know the name of the one with dark hair?
  12. Hey, I think you're looking for a different thread. This is the Discovery Hate-Watch thread
  13. Watched it all now and rather enjoyed it. Unsubtle political allegory, but a good 'wartime resistance' movie.
  14. It was a bit dark, murky yellow for me. I switched to the non-HDR version. But my cheap Sammy is a bit rubbish for some HDR.
  15. This is out on Netflix now (in Sweden at least). Enjoyable first 10 minutes so far. The fact the UK cinematic release was cancelled doesn't fill me with hope though.
  16. Over Xmas I unboxed my old dvd collection that we haven't looked at since we moved here six years ago. Loving going through some old classics and, surprisingly, finding it much easier to choose something to watch than we do on streaming services. And the upscaled DVDs look better on our TV than I expected then to!
  17. I definitely get some Idris Elba vibes from him, in looks and intensity. It's not just the Black British guy in sci-fi thing. He's nothing like, I dunno, John Boyega or Noel Clarke for example. Maybe a bit Paterson Joseph though, from when he was in Survivors.... Not so much from Peep Show though
