  1. Mass Effect: Andromeda

    I've read a preview today too. Really encouraged by it. Conversely to what Giant Bomb observed, it suggests that, although the game does look great at times, some of the character models (specifically humans) look shite. The female Ryder inparticular looks just plain odd. They also refer to lack of new aliens, but in the interview that accompanies the preview, it's suggested that's purely because it's early sections of the game and the new stuff doesn't appear until later on. They also confirm they don't know if it'll be a trilogy or not yet, which storywise, is a bit odd. Very positive about combat and the use of the Nomad (the new Mako). It's also a complete mystery why there has been so little shown of the game before release, they suggest it may have been due to the graphics in certain parts of the game, but no one really knows, and Bioware aren't telling. It's eased my fears somewhat. I'll get it on release regardless of reviews tbf.
  2. The Film Thread

    I'm pretty sure we've had the discussion a bunch of times before, so won't go in to greater detail, but animated adaptations aside, the best of a bad bunch is probably Mortal Kombat. I haven't seen it, but isn't Warcraft held in relatively high-ish regard (from non fan boys)? On the subject there was a bit of Metal Gear Solid movie news yesterday. Whilst doing promo for the upcoming Kong: Skull Island, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts gave a small update on the project We can but hope.
  3. Final Fantasy

    The first chunk of that DLC is out now, with the patch. There's a weapon (which if you're in the end game is pretty useless), a reel (which is worse than the best one you can get from totomostro), and a fishing rod which is actually quite good. The PS4 Pro part of the patch makes it run worse apparently, but I have noticed the game running better on PS4. The level cap is up to 120 too, not sure why you'd want to do that as you'd be way OP for anything that is available at the moment. Hopefully there's some ultra high level enemies put in at a later date. Which leads nicely on to the other addition from the patch - Timed Quests. The first of which is a battle against 100 Cactuars and Slactuars, and is good fun. Not all at once, about 10 or so at a time, but it's worth a look. You get a reward and gil upon completion the first time, but it is repeatable for exp, making it the quickest way to grind from 100 to 120, if you should be so inclinded. I've been mostly playing Yakuza lately, but do want to finish off the plat for this. Have to be quick though, what with Mass Effect and P5 coming fast...

  6. *spoilers* The Walking Dead *spoilers*

    Yeah, as I referred to before, I don't see any reason why they couldn't turn them in to the Whisperers later on if things go tits up for them during the war with the Saviors. There was a big guy too who instantly made me think of Beta. The actress did confirm that they are the Scavengers on Talking Dead, though. That hasn't been establised on the screen yet though, so they could leave it out for a future retcon.

    "PS/2 or USB - that is the question"

    I thought that moment was a very intentional attempt at some slapstick humour myself
  9. *spoilers* The Walking Dead *spoilers*

    I have to say, I really enjoyed that episode. It was a bit gimmicky, a bit emotional, bit of action, bit of light peril - good fund overall. It also struck me that now, for the first time in it's entire TV run, the show is becoming quite 'comic-y'. The new group was pretty out there, not at all like anything seen previously, and they were almost a charicature of a post-apocalpytic group. I've seen some pondering that they could be The Whisperers - female leader, strange manner of speaking, odd use of the dead. I even clocked a really massive guy amonst their ranks (Beta?). It's plausible. Perhaps All Out War goes badly for them, so their leader uses walkers to bolster their ranks and starts to live with them, in order to enact revenge upon Alexandria. It's certainly a better origin story for TV than another wild theory I'd heard - that the characters from Fear The Walking Dead eventually become them.

    Fairs. What about whapping it out and asking if she'd like to have a go on it, tried that?

  13. Horizon Zero Dawn

    PS4 exclusive from Killzone devs Guerrilla Games, out next week and reviewing very well. Post apocalyptic action role player, with third person combat involving spears, bow and arrows, harpoon guns, stealth, and an open world. The biggest draw here is probably the fancy pants looking enemies - animals and dinosaurs in robot form referred to simply as 'Machines' rule the world, the reason for which is examined in the story. Of which is apparently one of the weaker aspects of the game. The open world itself and combat hold up very well it seems, and it's pretty stunning to look at. There's a few elements taken from other games - a Batman style 'focus' allows you to survey the area and locate Machine weak points, there's also the Ubisoft approach to the open world in so far as bits and bobs are dotted all over to investigate, and you can climb giant giraffe-like machines instead of radio towers to unlock sections of the map. I was always rather impressed by the teasers we've seen over the years, looks like it might actually live up to the expectation.
  14. The magical imaginarium

    Disagree with the original statement on photo. 'All the building blocks for them' are not actual human beings. So, I'd say, every single human being that has ever existed, alive or dead, before it was taken, and the building blocks for those who will exist after, is contained within the frame of that photograph.
  15. The magical imaginarium

    Yes I like these kinds of things. One of my faves that you can do on a nice clear night - locate Orion's belt, best done around January. From there look at Orion itself. The star in the top left of Orion, with a faint red hue that may or may not be distinguishable, is Betelgeuse. If you were to swap our Sun for Betelgeuse, it would engulf everything up to Jupiter. And that's the 31st largest known star in the universe. Phew. Plus it's pronounced Beatlejuice, so that's fun too. If you really want to scare yourself with scale, check out the largest 'suggested' known supermassive blackhole at S5 0014+81
