Re: Mortal Kombat 11 [PC, PS4, Switch, XBone] - April 23rd

This series really is barking, isn't it.

I'll make do with just watching all the fatalities on Youtube, as ever.

Re: Game of Thrones S8

Jon Snorrrr's lack of reaction when told of his lineage was hilarious, not even a whisper of "Oh shit I fucked my sister" Well, no, because Dany's his Aunt. Which makes it fine. Yes. In fairness, I think shock is a perfectly understandable reaction to that sort of news. Yeah, some of the deus ex ma...

Re: The travel thread

Cathedrals are one of the few parts of organised religion that I actually like, and it's a damned shame to see one of the finest examples largely destroyed.

Re: Game of Thrones S8

Yeah, I was a bit shocked to find that we were only getting six episodes to finish the series off. That really does not feel like enough time, hell, twelve would feel a little truncated. I've been saying for the last year that I'm expecting this series isn't going to have a truly satisfying conclusi...

Re: General Film News

Incidentally you may want to stop using Thrawn as an example of old canon given that he's the primary antagonist in the second half of Rebels. I don't really know the character well enough to say whether they did him justice or not (I suspect he was a very watered down version given it wasa kids' sh...

Star Wars: The Mandalorian

Probably proving once again that Dave Filoni (the guy largely responsible for both The Clone Wars and Rebels) is doing more for Star Wars than the films are, this is the first live action Star Wars series. Jon Favreau (who is a pretty big Star Wars fan, seemingly) is the showrunner, with Filoni as e...

Re: General Film News

Much as I'm excited for the new film, I can't say that has anything to do with what happened in the previous one. I pretty much gave up on this franchise giving us anything new and interesting (at least at the cinema), and I'm happily just accepting the fan service. Bringing back Palpatine could ver...

Re: Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

Agreed. Something akin to Jedi Outcast would be quite well received, though given the era and theming they're going for, I'd have thought it would be more heavily weighted towards the shooting rather than the lightsaber duels. Edit: There's actually a lengthy description on the Origin store page for...

Re: Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

Could be, but given that it's undoubtedly going to have lightsaber combat, I'd expect a TPS if it's a shooter at all. It could switch between the two as the later Jedi Knight games did.

Re: Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

Hmm. There's nothing in there putting me off, but I'm surprised at how little it grabbed me too. Perhaps it's just the lack of any sort of information as to how it'll play or even what genre it fits into. That black helmeted character looks to be an Imperial Inquisitor; an order under the command of...

Re: Disney +

I just can't see myself ever subscribing to a streaming service for an individual studio, even a company as massive as Disney can't have sufficient content to warrant it. I would rather the price for Netflix went up than having to subscribe to multiple providers. If they ever do single month passes,...

Re: General Film News

Likewise. He's looking good for his age too. I did wonder how they were going to deal with the death of Carrie Fisher. From what I recall, she died before the release of the previous film, so unless they did the shooting for both back to back (and they didn't as far as I'm aware), they're going to h...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

Hysterically, the Brexit Party didn't register every suitable domain for their website including thebrexitparty.com, and it's been snatched up by Led by Donkeys.

Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

https://i.redd.it/jbu9vqu0for21.jpg Supposedly this is going to be a single-player game set after the events of Revenge of the Sith (though the TIE Fighters in the distance suggests it's closer to A New Hope). It's being produced by Respawn, of Titanfall fame. The full reveal is coming on the 13th....
