    4kfilme.de is listing the Batman tetralogy (Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, and Batman & Robin) as arriving in June, alongside a 35th anniversary edition of Gremlins.

    Xbox One X - Available November 7th 2017 - $499.99

    With that caveat that its definition of 2018 is only the first 10 months of the year: My GamerScore is 26,991 (+6,900 in 2018; +26%; top 1% of players) 354 hours (top 8% of hours played) 291 new achievements (top 1% of achievements earned) Most played game: Assassin's Creed: Origins at 82 hours (!) (The cutoff means it doesn't count me playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Red Dead Redemption 2, Battlefront II, Overcooked, Spyro: Ripto's Rage, a lot of Forza Horizon 4... My GamerScore was actually 29,800 at the end of 2018.) ...and it also said that sports is my favorite genre, 100% because of Forza.
  3. If you wind up getting the DLC for cheap at some point down the road, that'll help with challenge tokens as well. There are a bunch of new challenges but no new gadgets, and all the DLC costumes are earned rather than purchased. (I platinum'ed before the DLC dropped, but I still had a bunch of gadgets to upgrade and zero desire to perfect the Taskmaster challenges. The DLC challenges with Screwball are generous enough with tokens that I was fully upgraded after Turf Wars.)
  4. If your Gamers' Club Unlocked subscription is still active, Best Buy will be carrying Celeste on the Switch, so you'll get a beefier discount and probably not have to pay for shipping. Different cover art, though.

    Dawn of the Dead is on there too. (ESC is giving it a French release under as ‘Zombie’.). Wonder how different it’ll be from the Italian release.

    They still haven't announced the title, but its director and cinematographer are both still alive, whatever it is:

    Looks like somebody heard you! Apparently Doctor Strange is arriving on January 15th. On Amazon.com and everything! That’ll be some HDR goodness.

    Amazon.fr is listing Captain America: The First Avenger as a February release on Ultra HD Blu-ray.
  10. I'm still getting those GTA V alerts even after disabling events.
  11. It has over here for sure. My wife explicitly told me not to get her FM7 last year. She couldn’t really get into FM6, while FH2 and 3 (and now 4!) were all-consuming obsessions.

    At least we still have Kino Lorber's mystery title(s?) coming early next year, and that's licensed from MGM. Whatever it is, it's a title that's in the process of being remastered now, not something that's already been issued on Blu-ray from a 4K master.

    The bizarre thing is that Shout Factory has released a bunch of IMAX documentaries on the format, so it's not as if they have an authoring or replication hurdle to overcome, plus they have plenty of 4K masters handy. Nor would the cult titles that they could release be any more niche-y than a doc about, say, national parks. I don't know what the rationale is, other than perhaps they're waiting for a large enough userbase to sell some of these same movies for a third time (or beyond?).

    A mod on High Def Ninja's forums reports that Zavvi confirmed this to them...that they're regular ol' Blu-ray discs and not the shiny, new Ultra HD variety.

    Six more Marvel movies are on the way: trilogy releases of Captain America and Iron Man are about to go up for pre-order in the UK. This would leave just five movies -- Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, and Doctor Strange -- without an Ultra HD Blu-ray release.

    FilmArena in the Czech Republic is listing a 40th anniversary Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Alien for April '19.
  17. Physical, with some exceptions. It's a collector's mindset that I ought to break but can't quite manage. Maybe when my GCU expires...

    I'll import They Live without blinking twice. Scream Factory's BD is drenched in DNR and looks awful.

    Lionsgate apparently isn't stopping at Halloween this October. A few retailers are listing Evil Dead as coming on Oct. 9th. It's unclear if this is indeed the original Evil Dead (which does have a 4K master!) or if this is ED2, which Studiocanal is releasing in Europe in October as well.

    Amazon was pricematching Target. (Rule of thumb: if you see a good price at Amazon, they're pricematching Target, Walmart, or Best Buy. Amazon has little-to-no interest in leading with their own deals.) It's out of stock on target.com, but you might be able to find it in-store for $10.40 + tax if you use this week's 20% Cartwheel deal.

    The original Halloween is coming to UHD BD on October 2nd.

    Today in fairly random appearances on an international retailer: Shutter Island, next month. Dunno how much stock to put in that. Several Bruce Lee films -- The Way of the Dragon, The Big boss, Game of Death, and The Chinese Connection -- are popping up in France for an October 27th release.
