    I had a somewhat similar experience this afternoon. I could’ve definitely used a good push to get out of this spot. Just a couple more feet and I would’ve smashed that Fast Travel board too!

    I still have a ton of organizing and shuffling around to do but I wanted everything in one place and this works for now. There are double stacked rows so I can easily see what’s behind but my PSX and DC collection are basically stocked on top of each other in rows. I don’t like packing 60-70 games like that in a cube so I need to spread them out. Same for my carts in the bottom. Still, it’s getting there....

    Bought CHRISTINE today. Be watching tonight. Maybe even a John Carpenter double-feature with HALLOWEEN.

    PSVR has had a pretty big month (or so) with Firewall, Torn, Transference, Creed, Bow to Blood, Catch and Release, Blind and others. It looks like the fall could be even bigger though with Astrobot, Evasion, Tetris Effect, Beat Saber, Blood and Truth, Derecine, Vacation Simulator and more all scheduled to be released. IGN has a good video with their impressions of PSVR from TGS. They talk about Astrobot, Blood and Truth, Tetris, Final Assault, Space Channel 5 (briefly, and fans of SC5 may not be happy with their thoughts on it) and Beat Saber. I’m getting pretty hyped for Astrobot. It looks like it has some really clever ideas in it that go beyond “A 3D platformer in VR”. I’m glad it’s coming out next week! It’s also great to see Sony starting to flex some of its muscle and resources behind PSVR games. Some of the smaller, more indie games are great and should not be overlooked, but it really needs some of these games with slightly higher production values to make people sit up and take notice. https://m.ca.ign.com/videos/2018/09/28/playstation-vr-is-about-to-hit-its-stride

    Just finished watching Halloween. Lionsgate.... I popped in the 1999 Anchor Bay Limited Edition release which is generally considered the definitive release from a color timing standpoint. This UHD release is pretty damned spot on. The HDR pass has further enhanced the soft blue tinge to the night time scenes even moreso than the 2013 Blu-Ray version. There is a marked increase in clarity and detail over that release. To the point where you can clearly see the details of the mask as Myers drives around in the daylight. The color palette is suitably muted over the disastrous 2007 release and the film FEELS like it properly takes place on a fall day in Halloween. This is very much the 35th Anniversary transfer with improvements as mentioned. It’s not perfect, however as the addition of HDR has not completely improved contrast throughout the entire transfer but there are moments where deeper blacks are well on display and specular highlights are noticeably enhanced. The grain structure in the film could also be a little more stable overall but some of this is simply inherent in the look of the film. I’ll take it over any level of grain removal. No matter how you slice it, this is the definitive home video release of Halloween. I’m extremely pleased with it and it’s worth every penny on UHD.

    Per the Hollywood Reporter Kathleen Kennedy "has renewed her contract to remain president of Lucasfilm for another three years, through 2021". https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-chief-kathleen-kennedys-lucasfilm-deal-extended-three-years-1147653

    Superman: The Movie is a MUST-OWN for me. The HDR might be... super!

    Mega Man, as a series, seems to be in this weird place. Fans expect it to adhere to a strict design philosophy set by the early games -- particularly Mega Man 2 and 3 -- but it can neither change too much nor too little. If it changes too much, they say it doesn't feel like a Mega Man game anymore. If it doesn't change enough, it's just the same old, same old. The question is, what is the exact right amount of change that would satisfy people like Colin? My gut tells me nothing would. No matter what Capcom does, he won't be happy either way.

    Forza Horizon 4 launch trailer. Oh my. I'm ridiculously busy these next couple of weeks, and my precious gaming time is stretched as it is, but good golly, I want to play this.

    I'd like to try the shortcuts but I refuse to talk out loud to Siri.

    The Shortcuts app has a pretty good amount of functionality if you know what you’re doing. People have made some pretty complex things, and even a few small games through the prompts you can activate. https://www.reddit.com/r/shortcuts The Shortcuts Subreddit has some cool ideas and interesting ones you can download. One of my faves is “Getting pulled over by police”. Not that I need it, but it’s just fun.

    Reviews for this are starting to pour in. It's currently sitting on a very respectable 92 on MetaCritic.

    Phoenix is one of the finest actors working today in my view, so I'm actually really fascinated in that whole project. Curious to know what De Niro's role is in the film too. I just wish Warner and DC were not determined to fuck things up in such an epic way because you have this, and the Joker/Harley spin-off movie with Leto still seems to be happening, then there's the reboot of the Batman franchise itself and not knowing whether that's going to be its own thing, or side with the Phoenix or Leto universe.... It's just... ugh. What a mess.

    Yeah, I kinda fell away from watching this religiously because of the Jenna Coleman era... Capaldi was wasted with the writing quality these past few years. I like what I've seen so far of the new Doctor & will be giving it a chance.

    So we ended up at our friends’ place yesterday because a tornado ripped through town and demolished our power. We are fine and have power again but we killed time with games. First play of Spoils of War, which is basically Liar’s Dice with loot and special powers. Really great, lots of yelling and swearing. Then Modern Art, which we used to play endlessly back in the day. Still one of my favorite auction games ever.
