Haha. I think this should answer your questions:

Re: Back in time...

I've seen something like this done on a forum I was on years ago, in that case it was a poster going through every upload from a long running YouTube channel and giving commentary on the videos with various highlights etc. It worked as a history of the channel, it was a great nostalgia trip for long...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Your posts in here made me really want Criterion but it's not available in England :( Have you tried the BFI Player? Their collection is also outstanding. There's a huge overlap with Criterion in terms of world cinema classics and it's actually better for 21st century cinema. Plus at £4.99 per mont...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Time Bandits[/i][/b] This seems to be a British fantasy classic but for some reason I'm only getting to it now! It's Terry Gilliam which means it's wildly imaginative with physical special effects that have aged brilliantly. There's also a strong whiff of Python about it (not least in the presence ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm right before the last mission in Spiderman so I spent yesterday afternoon swinging around clearing up a good chunk of the remaining collectibles & side missions. Most of it has been smooth sailing but the challenges can be quite tricky, it took me a lot of attempts to get gold on all of the Dron...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm playing Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and really enjoying it. I haven't completed many Mario games (I didn't grow up with Nintendo) but I do always enjoy them and I'm a huge JRPG fan so I thought it was a good choice for a first game on my SNES Mini. It's great to pop on and play fo...

Re: Videogame Criticism

I think they know exactly what they are doing. My friend admitted to me recently that he spent nearly 400 quid on those cards in Fifa last year, lol I couldn't believe it, I had no idea it could be so costly but I imagine that is particularly bad? The thing he seemed to be most annoyed about was the...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Incase anyone is interested, the other two games I got with my PS1 were Michael Owen's Soccer and the Batman & Robin movie game, you can probably see why I spent so much time with Rascal. Got Olympic Soccer with mine. I wonder which was worse. :). (quick wikipedia search later) OH GOD THEY'RE BY TH...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

I actually went back to Caligula's list to see if he had a vote that would push RE1 over the top but unfortunately he has voted for #4 :lol: Caligula! Did you sell your console in 2015? It seems that Bloodborne is the most recent game on your list :) lol it's kind of the opposite, I had a few years...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Here's my list (Not meant to be in order). I tried to only pick one game per series but I couldn't decide between FF9 or 7 so they both went in. I had PES 05 in there but really there are several PES games from 2003-7 that all just blur into one, it felt a bit weird putting any of them on the list a...

it's hard to get annoyed by adults who still go on like the kid who swears he lost his virginity at Butlins over the summer. :lol: I used to get that "I haven't got the time" patter from certified gaming nerds on a forum I used to go to. I'd post a 1cc or wax lyrical about spelunky or something and...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

There is always going to be a recency bias with these things, so it's less interesting to see what new additions crop up than what games have so concretely stayed in our collective concensus, that even 10 - 15 years later, they still make the cut. That's when you know a game goes beyond just being ...

Re: The "Introduce yourself" thread

Almost certainly an age thing but this isn't an issue for me at all, I rarely come across any judgmental attitudes to games these days and in general it's just too inconsequential and silly for me to care if people think that way. My typical encounter with that kind of tripe usually goes like this: ...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

I'm surprised to see Silent Assassin in there over Blood Money but that's partly my own nostalgia talking. Fear not, I like Blood Money pretty-much exactly as much as Silent Assassin. I know for many fans, Blood Money was where IO fulfilled the promise that the Hitman series had held up to that poi...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Enjoying reading through all of the lists in here (Shout out Dynasty Warriors 3) I might have to give it a go but I always end up with too many choices and find it really difficult to narrow down; it's always a bit painful putting these lists together and having to exclude things you love. Excellent...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Does anyone on here watch Dark? I just finished the s2 series and I thought it was brilliant, although I'm not too sure of the very last scene. I know it's got a bit of a cult following and good reviews but I still think it is a bit overlooked, the only people I know who watch it are the friend that...

Re: Videogame News

Yeah I'd say the parents I know are pretty on it with their kids playing games, the same as they are with them watching youtube or just being on the internet in general. There has been so much in the media over the past few years about the dangers of letting your kids play games or go online unsuper...

Re: Videogame News

Anyway, the age ratings on the box are there for a reason, so I would be curious if those "experts" are sounding the same alarms when it comes to mature rated films featuring similar imagery. My guess is that they aren't. They did kind of address that in the study, they think that parents are less ...

Re: Videogame News

If ‘all’ you think they’ll be doing is indulging in mindless violence, you should be aware: they could be picking up more bad habits than you bargained for.
haha that's brilliant.

Happily watch Lil Timmy blow half the town's face off but they better not be huffing those damn cancer sticks!
