Re: What's the most 'Value For Money' game you've ever played?

Witcher 3 has to be near the top for me. I paid £16 for it and I spent 140 hours on my first run-through. Still planning to go back and play it again because I've yet to do the expansion stuff. In terms of pure money vs time it's probably Civ 4 or something like that, but I wouldn't call it "value" ...

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

Finally got around to watching Call Me By Your Name last night and I don't see what all the fuss was about. I found it pretty dull.

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

There was a certain irony to the English king being played by someone half French and half American and the French Dauphin being played by a Brit. :D

I thought he was great, yeah, and I was impressed with the script. Still can't get over the fact he co-wrote it.

I've been listening to the soundtrack a lot over the last few days.

Re: Welcome to Blade Runner month !

Final Cut definitely.

2049 didn't work for me, but it wasn't helped by the fact that the cinema I saw it in was shit.

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

That is correct, which is a fantastic book, but a less-than-awesome movie. I agree 100%. I loved the book; why can't they just make Crichton books into films without fucking about with them? The guy wrote for film and TV FFS, he knows what he's doing and they should stop messing about with the sour...

The King

I thought this was fantastic. The soundtrack in particular was sublime and Timothee Chalamet and Joel Edgerton were brilliant in their parts.

Re: Role playing in games

It depends on the game. In Star Wars game I usually go full Black Hat because who doesn't like choking and lightning the plebs? Witcher 3 I was generally a very Friendly Geralt, and similarly with Skyrim.

Cyberpunk 2077... I'll have to wait and see.

I'd put money on the dog being made Defence Secretary soon.

It is, after all, a very talented dog.

Re: Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker - the last film in the saga

What a load of nonsense. That's like saying horoscopes are deeply philosophical because the idiots who believe them find meaning in them when really they're a load of rubbish. Of course the author and their vision have some bearing on the story and interpretation. I'm not saying that people can't fi...

I'm with Alan. I've tried to watch The Shining three times and always fallen asleep long before the end. Such a dull film.

Re: Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker - the last film in the saga

But the greatness of Star Wars has always been that it can be appreciated as both a fun space adventure and an introspective philosophical exercise . I think they’ve maintained that balance for the saga films. :lol: Now I know you're just trolling. The films are fun, sure, but they're about as phil...
