Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I watched Dr Brain, it has a dumb name, but it's a really slick well directed scifi thriller show about an unemotional guy creating memory transfer tech. The showrunmer is Kim Jee-Woon the director who made The Good The Bad The Weird and I Saw The Devil.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Cheers for the reply. I haven't yet but it's in a Herzog BFI box that I picked up earlier in the year. Will definitely get to it soon. Very interested in his take on it. Yeah, I ended up preferring it to the original, but 50 years of filmmaking techniques do help even though it's almost a shot for ...

Have you checked out Warner Herzog's 1979 remake of Nosferatu, it's also great.

Re: Games Completed 2021

Just Finished Kena Bridge of Spirits, it's a really fun new AA 3D action with fun combat and an engaging story. It feels like a game that was more common on 360/PS3 consoles. I think it's worth checking out. It also just looks fantastic, it's by the team that made that animated Majora's Mask short a...

Deathloop Invasions

If anyone is playing Deathloop and wants to invade my PSN name is also Tolkientaters. I'm really really enjoy playing against invaders.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been loving Deathloop, it's my favorite game this year. I think the general writing is a big step from Arkane's previous games and the voice acting for Julianna and Colt is fantastic. I love the gameplay loop, and I actually like the invasion mechanic, it's not like Souls where if I get invaded...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Just finished Thr Forgotten city and got all the endings, it's my favorite game so far this year. It's a really interesting premise with a great execution, it's not a particularly challenging adventure game, but it is very satisfying.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been really enjoying The Forgotten City, it's a well written adventure game that started as a Skyrim Mod. It's got a great premise for a game that's largely reliant on its writing, a city where anyone committing a "sin" condemns the entire population to death.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Went to see Candyman and thought it was really good. I haven't seen the original so might have missed some context but it was a really tense film that was perfect for my level of horror threshold which is quite low, so don't expect anything particularly scary. I was expecting more of a comedic elem...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Psychonauts 2 is a lot of fun, I'm not too far in, but it's doing a great job being a charming sincere game that's really fun to play.

Re: 486 - Metro Exodus

This was my first Metro game and I really enjoyed it. The best feature of Metro Exodus and likely the entire Metro series is an unparalleled sense of atmosphere, the mask filters, general scarcity, and dozens of other little touches just make this world feel that much more real. It does sacrifice th...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Watched The Suicide Squad, it's fantastic, I think it's the best movie DC put out since The Dark Knight. A lot of silly violent fun, not all of the jokes land, but it's stays fun and has a lot of heart throughout.

July 29- Yakuza Kiwami 2

This is the 3rd Yakuza game I finished after 7 and 0. It's my favorite so far, it's just a fantastic game. I have some issues with plot reveals, but it's so snappy and fast paced and full of ridiculous plot details that I can't help but love it.

I absolutely loved SoR4 so this sounds great. Is there any new arcade levels,?
No, just a survival mode which includes some new weapons and enemies and those 3 new playable boss characters( Shiva, Max, and Estel) that you can play in any mode.

Yakuza 7 was the first Yakuza game I finished followed by 0, I really enjoyed both. I did skip Kiwami 1 because ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I got the Streets of Rage 4 DLC, Shiva's just a ton of fun to play, the other 2 are good, but he's just a step above for me. The DLC is definitely worth checking out if you like main game; 3 new characters and a new survival mode.
