Re: Justice League (2017)

Unfortunately for DC they’ll always be compared to the MCU and the introduction of new characters without much of a backstory (playiny catchup) has impacted the movies. Justice League was generally enjoyable, but should’ve been done after another 3 years after we’ve been introduced to Flash, Aqua Ma...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel (live action)

I watched the anime once and it has always stuck with me.

Never thought I’d see Cameron go through with the live action but very cool to see.

Re: Avengers: Infinity War

Not the MCU ones. SS is over at 20th Century Fox unfortunately. Oh no shit :( Which is not to say that SS would never appear in a MCU movie. Sony had exclusive rights to Spiderman but after significant negotiations they brought him into the MCU. But yeah unless some massive secret has been kept, we...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II

Couldn't believe it, played as a hero (Luke) for the first time tonite. I had quite a decent run beforehand, but it feels like getting enough Battlepoints to play as a hero is more of a once in a blue moon sort of thing than a typical part of the game. Which is fine, as the Heroes are insanely powe...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II

They’ve reduced the credit unlocks by 75%, so Luke/Vader has gone down from 60,000 to 15,000.

Still the damage has been done and it is still insulting to lock iconic characters for no justifiable reason other than to incentivise people to pay for loot boxes.

Re: New TV Help

I’m going a TV buy phase right now so hopefully can help: Firstly, TV size is like the internet. It’s great to upsize, but to downsize kinda sucks. You become so accustomed to your current size so if possible try to keep the size the same. In terms of Ultra HD, HD, OLED, here are my two cents: OLED ...

Re: Alien: Covenant

I think the only bit that really bugged me was taking off the helmets on a foreign planet, which seems to be a big no-no in Planetary Exploration 101. But I suppose they needed some poor suckers to breathe in some nasty spores for plot advancement. Either way, the film was ok.

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II

Played a couple of hours over the weekend. First off I'm impressed by how they've re-jigged the general gameplay. No more pickups on the ground, just focus on playing the objective or killing the enemy. The battlefield points system is a cool way to implement vehicles and unique character options - ...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II

Visually the game looks the same as the first Battlefront. Gameplay wise it also looks similar with the use of power-ups and starcards. The addition of a characters/content from all eras seems to be the biggest thing drawcard getting people excited, but if you didn't like the gameplay of the first B...
