Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

Completely bounced off Dark personally, found it too confusing and didn't fancy having to take a PhD in a TV show to be able to enjoy it. I've seen discussions between people who got really into it and felt relieved I noped out :lol: Was worried this would be similar so another one crossed off the l...

Re: Midnight Suns - Marvel meets XCOM, out March 2022

Tried watching a LP, but quickly gave up as it was honestly just boring to watch. I've followed this YTer's Xcom campaigns so I don't think it's a problem with them or the genre. Maybe it plays better than it does as passive entertainment, but I'm not paying that much to find out...

Re: The Callisto Protocol PC

Apparently this runs like an absolute dog on PC. Sometimes when we get sent review code for a game, the PR will say that they'll be getting PC code later, but if we want we can have a console code so we can get a head start playing the game. There are a lot of reasons that might happen, but I'll be ...

It already irks me that the C4 on-demand channel pauses the ads if you have the temerity to switch to another tab.

Re: Midnight Suns - Marvel meets XCOM, out March 2022

Oh damn... After such thrilling, repetitive social activities such as chilling poolside and playing video games with every member of the team, I can safely say I hate all of these characters. Peter Parker is the worst of the bunch, easily getting the dunce award for the most hopeless man-child featu...

Re: The Watch

Just imagine how much better the books are!

No joke, everything they added is objectively worse than what they took out, for no reason.

Re: The Watch

Yep, sorry, I've not helped there. :lol: But I think there's an interesting wider discussion to be had on adaptations. I broadly agree that sticking to the source material where appropriate is best, but I've seen plenty of criticism (some here but mainly elsewhere) along those lines targeted at the...

Re: Midnight Suns - Marvel meets XCOM, out March 2022

It's reviewing very well from what I've seen, but both reviews I've read have made the point that it's 50% strategy game and 50% social sim (and both reviews portrayed it as a positive). Which actively puts me off.

Oh well, guess the wait continues for XCOM 3...

Yeah, DRG is great. If it's just the four of us I'd be happy inviting another (we haven't had a Scout in the party yet).
Oh, is it up to five players? Even better

Re: The Watch

I wonder if it's partially an ego thing. I get the feeling creative types don't want to just reproduce someone else's work, they have to either put their own spin on things or at least create something of their own within the parameters set in another's work. This is 100% the problem with The Witch...

Re: The Watch

I read that Tolkien's estate basically banned them from using most of the material in Silmarillion, so maybe they didn't have much choice. But then, for me, the questions remains: why bother?
