Nioh is coming to PC! Previously a popular Dark Souls evolutionary derivative I couldn't care less about (hmmph!)... that suddenly think I might maybe definitely play! Funny how that works. :carcus:

It's cool, but most of the bosses are lame.

Bloodborne is the best, though.

Well well, look who's back...

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/j-j-abrams-star-wars-episode-ix-director-colin-trevorrow-1202548094/

Seems a good, if obvious, trade since Trevorrow's Lucas/Spielberg impression is really just a worse version of Abrams' and it actually gives this trilogy a symmetry like the original (hopefully not TOO much like the original though, amirite!? :troll:). Anyway, as lazy of an out as this seems I can't really think of a better choice. Rian Johnson could change my mind of course, or fuck up Luke Skywalker. Other than that I guess it would have been nice to finally fulfill the prophecy of Spielberg directing one of these things, but I think he pinky swore with George to never do that, or it's some ego thing of his own ("I'm bigger than George's one movie"). Plus, he hasn't been in his prime for a while now anyway. It'd be like getting Michael Jordan on your team but from the Wizards. Probably better to take the current All-Star than watch Spielberg make his own version of the prequel debacle instead of adding the fun or pathos you might expect.

I wish it was Brad Bird, but Abrams is fine.

Finished up Horizon: Zero Dawn today. Absolutely loved the story and gameplay.

Started Bloodborne, and already have died about 100 times.

Been playing Horizon Zero Dawn (love it). Almost done with it, and will be making my way to Bloodborne!

Saw Dunkirk last night. What a visual/auditory experience!

Trailer for The Shape Of Water, directed by Del Torro with Michael Shannon, Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins (trailer gives away too much) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_GKioYh5lA

Honestly there is so much about this that screams Abe Sapien I'm surprised Mike Mignola hasn't filed a copyright lawsuit.

Still, though, I'd love to see it.

Just saw Baby Driver. Can confirm all the thing Canny said. Very good movie, but a little bit too long in some parts.

Been playing the DLC for BotW. The game just is never not fun. Charging the Master Sword to full power has been difficult.

My initial reaction was that at least his brother had the decency to throw himself off a bridge, but i didn't want to sound too grim. :ganishka:

I don't know, man. That's about the shittiest thing I've read in regards to Scott's career.

Griff, is it at the very least worth a watch?  I have a guilty pleasure for resurrection.  Covenant just sounds more and more like something to avoid.

Take it from someone who loved ALL of the Alien/Predator movies: it's awful.

I see the reviews are stellar.  Tell me, feeling so so about MoS, disliking BvS, and refusing to watch Suicide Squad, how was it?   Did we finally get over the bad writing and random plot devices?

WB actually let the director direct. I enjoyed the above mentioned movies (except for Suicide Squad), but I believe this is a movie everyone can enjoy. The best part is that they don't give away anything revealing in the trailers, so I was pretty surprised by a lot of stuff (that I won't mention).

I'm trying to remember my habits in the early part of the game without spoiling anything. I only recall an ignominious combination of creeping around, dying, and that oppressive feeling of being surrounded by insurmountable enemies. Ahhhh, I miss it. =)

Yes. Being at like 2 hp and running back to the bonfire so you don't lose your souls. It's awful but so exciting.

Alien: Isolation - Because it's probably better than any of the Alien movies released in the last 25 years? I don't know though because I just reached the station; haven't seen any alien(s) yet. Lovely recreation of the original's world though.

Oooh, where you at?

Not very far. I've been leveling up as much as possible right after the fire shrine lol.

Working my way through Dark Souls 3. I love how challenging this series is!

I like how you phrased that like an invasive, suicidal thought or something, "There have been days I've considered [eating a bullet/watching AvP2]." The first one is merely disappointingly bad, the second is actually disgusting if you're a big fan of either series. Unless you're viewing it as a comedy apparently; maybe it'd be ok going in drunk and knowing you're watching the Trolls 2 of the Aliens and Predator frachises, but that unfortunately wasn't my experience. It even has Lance Hendrickson cameo in it to add insult to injury, the cherry on top of a shit sundae.

In my defense, I went in with the absolute lowest expectations, and ended up enjoying them. Guilty pleasure and all.

I don't remember, but man was that a terrible premise alone.  I can't imagine anyone would have trouble doing better.   I enjoy the alien movies, not saying they're all great or even good, but those are pretty embarrassing.

I loved them, but to each their own. I even took a date to the first one!

I walked out of AvP at the "I'm in love with a predator" part of the story.  As if I needed any other reason and there were many.  That movie was so bad that it far surpasses any logical defense.  It needed Chris Hansen to intervene.

lol so you walked out 5 minutes before the end?

Anything after The Waterboy other than Punch-Drunk Love and possibly Reign Over Me and I'm calling shenanigans.
No idea what you're talking about. Sandler hasn't made anything since then, right?

So bad it's bad is not a thing. AvP I could almost be talked into because I only saw it once 13 years ago and though it wasn't good I can't remember specifically why other than that bad condom line and the characters and monsters being underwhelming to shitty (other than the queen, but the predators were stupid and fucked up and it all suffered from shaky cam), but overall it was an inoffensive, "we don't know any better" sort of bad. Requiem though... that was pain. It was painful. It hurt me. It hurt my feelings. Liking it is like the entertainment equivalent of masochism; it's like saying you're into ball torture. I don't understand that and it scares me.

They did what they set out to do, which was just be entertainment at the cost of nothing. They didn't take themselves seriously, which is why I loved them. Also, ball torture...don't knock it til you've tried it.

Sometimes it seems more like no limit for you TO enjoy something... and I only make that point because, generous as you are, even you think Covenant sucks! Wow. Looks like I made the right call on my high concept, sci-fi rigmarole this past weekend.

Covenant took itself unbelievably seriously. The CGI was awful as well as the stupid characters. I thought it would learn from Prometheus' mistakes, but it didn't. I gave Scott a chance and he blew it with this. I'll always have the first two movies (sadly three too), though.

Oh come on, you can't be serious. Is their genre "shit movies"? Are you a fan of Adam Sandler as well? Where's the limit?

I am. It is. Yes. No limit when I enjoy something.
