  1. You may have already seen them but you might find these game accessibility guidelines useful.
  2. Just this last week I was made aware by a Rick Beato video of 'The Sails of Charon' by Scorpions, a band until now I'd only really associated with Winds of Change. Two things: Uli John Roth is amazing, and his performance and stage demeanour in the first minute of the video is mesmerising the groove on this is something else

    Woah, down to a decider. Amazing match.

    Williams' fightback has been amazing. Just one frame away from victory after being 7 frames down. I can't remember a year where both semi finals have been so good/tense.
  5. That painter dude is usually in Kakariko village or one of the stables. I wouldn't sweat the photos at this point - like phresh said, treat it like an ongoing side quest. What I do is pay close attention to what's in the backgound of the photos - that usually gives you a big clue to the general location.
  6. I accidentally found an amusing new way to take on powerful enemies the other day. I was near Tarry Town when I was ambushed by a golden bokoblin on horseback, and at the same time a thunderstorm hit. I couldn't equip any metal weapons and was being pummeled, when suddenly the bokoblin's bow started to crackle with electricity then....BAM! Instant lightning kill.
  7. The Battle of Brazil is a fascinating look into the problems faced by Terry Gilliam in getting Brazil a) made, and b) released. I don't have it to hand right now, but I seem to remember it also has some great production artwork too, like storyboards of unfilmed sequences. Edit: actually I'm not sure the production itself was that much of a problem (getting mixed up with Munchausen), but the final edit/release was a nightmare.
  8. Someone can take my go - I can't post any screenshots at the moment.
  9. After a heavy spell of combat, exploration and exposition, I love trekking to a nice quiet spot at one of the far reaches of the map, and hanging around for sunset and sunrise. I get all existential, contemplating how far from all the action I am in my solitary part of the world, and really taking in the ambient atmosphere. Then, after that short period of mindfulness, I duly head back into the fray.
  10. Can't wait to watch this and yet I don't want to watch it because it'll be the end. That's the paradox you face when you've been immersed in such a great story.
  11. Partially inspired by this thread being resurrected, I've resumed my Master Mode game after not touching it for months. I know it divides opinions, but I love the new elements it brings because it forces you to use a much broader range of strategies. You can't just storm gung ho into an enemy camp (well, nowhere near as often and certainly not at my early-ish stage in the game), but need to think about the most suitable approach. So I've done loads more sneak attacks, lots of picking off weaker enemies one by one with the bow and arrow, and sometimes just sneaking into a camp when all the enemies are sleeping, stealing the loot then scarpering. Stealth garb is essential, as is making good use of the weather and time of day, and plenty of times I've just bypassed enemies until later. I'm still a bit crap at timing dodges to trigger a flurry rush, so I need to practice that, particularly for the tougher beasts. Tied into all that is the need for better inventory management: finding/buying arrows (lots of arrows!), weapons and bows, critters and ingredients, and cooking suitable elixirs and meals. And then tied into that, is finding korok seeds to expand inventory slots, and searching for chests (I spent 3 hours last night dredging all the lakes in Farron for all manner of goodies). So you need to think much more about how all those wonderful gameplay systems are interlinked. The floating platforms are a great addition too, and make you think about using the game's verticallity even more for attacking/sneaking from above, so the climbing gear, Revali's gale and stamina potions all need to be used tactically. In short, it's great! I might even finish it in time for BOTW 2 next spring.
  12. There's The Court Jester, from the 1950s. It's got a few famous lines that I often mix up with something from The Princess Bride: "The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true!"
  13. Traditionally, all the little bits of leftover/broken pasta were thrown into a minestrone soup. A good one is amazing, very nutritious, affordable, easy to make and pretty flexible in terms of what ingredients you need.
  14. My son has recently got me into Seterra map games - I've been hitting the country/region/island/etc quizzes like a madman for the last couple of weeks or so, and it's really helped my Worldle guesses. If you like Worldle, chances are you'll love Seterra.
  15. All the suggestions are great, but this one has some really funky percussion that I wasn't necessarily seeking out but works brilliantly:
  16. Alien vs. Predator vs. Batman vs. Terminator vs. RoboCop vs. Superman vs. King Kong vs. Godzilla vs. Kramer vs. Kramer vs. Ash vs. Evil Dead vs. Freddy vs. Jason vs. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World vs. Larry Flint vs. Joe vs. The Volcano vs. Dante's Peak.
  17. I've been slowly and haphazardly working my way through Klaus Schulze's discography - Timewind was my entry point, which is somewhat fortuitous because it's amazing, and I'm after more of that kind of epic, spacey, somewhat cold atmosphere. Cyborg comes close, but does anyone have any more recommedations of that kind of vibe? Any artist considered.
  18. I only started watching it late last year and finished Season 3 last week, so it feels very fresh to me. Same thing with Better Call Saul, and that's coming back around the same time.
  19. Season 4 part 1 launches on Netflix on May 27 with part 2 coming in July. Season 5 confirmed, and will be the last.
  20. The verse sections of Mötley Crüe's Dr Feelgood sounds suspiciously similar to Aerosmith's Walk This Way.
