  1. More importantly, we now know that New Zealand will face England in the Cricket World Cup Final.
  2. It's not on the same level as a takeaway pizza, but I can get a perfectly nice mozzarella and basil pizza from Aldi from 1/10 the price of one delivered. It doesn't have that fun of having food brought to me, but I'm cheap soo...
  3. I remember reading the positives of putting clothes in the freezer to kill any bacteria. I'm a sweaty fuck though so I can't live that life.
  4. I need to wait for overall impressions before thinking about this, however if they go like-for-like with the pricing, I won't bother. If however, it releases for £160 in the UK, I could be very tempted as I doubt I'll ever really play in Docked mode.
  5. I think it's best to start with the catalyst for this thread, namely https://www.polygon.com/2019/7/8/20680953/king-kong-xbox-360-game-rayman-michel-ancel and then move into the concept. I remember buying King Kong on the Gamecube, what must have been 6 months before I picked up an Xbox 360 (no correlation, bar the timing) as it was cheap and I'd seemingly played everything else on the Gamecube. Unlike the author of the article, I don't remember a huge amount from the game, bar it being surprisingly scary due to the nature of the combat and the enemies and parts of the game looking fantastic. The article does beg the question though, what movie tie-ins did you either love, or find were much better than they had any right to be? To start off, we will not be talking about Goldeneye or Spiderman 2 in this thread as it has already been thoroughly discussed. As it's my thread however, I will start off with three games that I loved, played a huge amount and will still revisit from time-to-time now, when I want that hit of 'I love this, although I know it hasn't aged well'. Mission Impossible (N64) I remember this being the first game my best friend and I actively followed until release (including the pain of it's significant delay) and when we played it, we both loved it. It had a great (mature) plot, the mechanics were decent and the spy element was implemented pretty fantastically (good gadgets, not forgetting the Face Changer). The above mission 'Embassy' was one that I replayed almost as much as Facility. The World is Not Enough (N64) So underrated as it wasn't developed by Rare, but this took all the mechanics of Goldeneye, added more stealth bits, more story and a great opening sequence to make a very good FPS for it's time. This also laid the foundation for EA's surprisingly good James Bond offerings on the subsequent generation (Agent Under Fire, Nightfire, Everything or Nothing, From Russia With Love). Tomorrow Never Dies (PS1) I know it's basically shit and a rip-off of Syphon Filter. It handles poorly, looks and sound shit, but...it's really fun. Really diverse and it was the first PS1 game that I had bought for me as a Christmas present. There was shooting, driving and skiing all in the one package which was nice and the film, despite not being the strongest, will always be one of my favourites as it was the first I owned on VHS.
  6. I don't know if I care enough about this to look forward to it, but it did spark the conversation in my house about which remake we would like next. I opted for Hercules as I feel with great CGI and the song set, it could be wonderful.
  7. In remembering that I had Chrono Trigger on the DS unfinished, it made me pick up my DS and now I've started Soul Silver (for the first time), although I'm not sure if I have the patience for a Pokemon game these days.
  8. Like everyone that played Alan Wake, I'd say that it's been at least 7 years, if not more, since I played it. I do remember the dodge mechanic being finicky, but ultimately it handling reasonably well.
  9. Creed 2. Me after it finished: I love the Rocky universe and this was another fine, fine addition.
  10. I found it was the kind of game that was best played in shorter bursts, though it was a great game. Genuinely looking forward to Doom: Eternal, which is rare as bar Death Stranding, I've not actively looked forward to a game in years.
  11. I'm trying out Horizon Zero Dawn and so far, I like the combat (feels identical to Tomb Raider), it looks great, the story and setting is interesting and it controls well. I'm not sure how much I'll like the way the world map will definitely become overly cluttered with unnecessary missions, things to collect etc, but I'll keep plodding through.
  12. Well that spanks the PS+ offering.
  13. @CastlevaniaNut18 now likes reading/talking about games as part of the hobby more than playing them.
  14. ' That sounds very cool, will keep a look out.
  15. After listening to the Giant Bombcast segment from E3 about unions, this is the case. Otherwise, we'll just keep hearing about these stories with the overarching feeling of 'well, if you want to work in the industry, this is how we do it'.
