    The extra dashboard advertising/placement is obviously nice, as is any DLC sales (and I suspect game pass customers are good consumers of DLC, even for games they don't really "own"), and any extra sales of the game. But the up front lump cash payment, possibly for a game that's crested the top of its sales curve? Yum.

    So, I finished played Baby's First Souls Game, a.k.a. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, last night. And you know what? I loved it! I loved the combat. I love the traversal. I loved the exploration. I loved the story. I loved the characters. I loved the acting. Everything about this game worked for me. Sure it was a little glitch-y in parts, but nothing game-breaking. The only thing I didn't like were the load times between deaths. I played on Jedi Master difficulty, which means I died a lot -- which means I had to wait a lot. Still it felt good to make it through to end of the story, knowing that I beat it on hard. If you're a Star Wars fan, I can't recommend this game strongly enough. It is what you hoped for and more. Go get it!

    MS absolutely pays a fee for Game Pass titles.

    I'm not opposed to buying titles I've already played on Game Pass. However, the amount of money I'm willing to spend for a game I've already played -- and in most cases still have access to through the service -- is way lower. For instance, had I not been subscribed to Game Pass at the time, I would have bought Gears 5 over the holidays when it was on sale for $30 (as I did with Gear of War 4 back in 2016). I didn't though because it seemed like a waste of money to pay extra for a game I could already play (and had played at launch). At some point, yes, I would like to officially add it to my collection, but not for that much money. Maybe if it were $10 or less -- but not $30. I still like having a big video game collection, and I still buy lots of games. However, Game Pass has me rethinking my relationship with said collection. Do I need to own every game I play? I don't think so. Do I want to own the games I love the most or the ones I'm most excited for? Absolutely. The question I have to ask is how much am I willing to pay for them now that these types of services exist?

    No strings. Once you buy it, it's yours.

    Lynch's Elephant Man hits disc on 6th of April in the UK. It will be another similar Studio Canal £35 collector's edition on release, so I'd expect a cheaper disc only version 6-10 months later. Why they don't just release both options at the same time I don't know. It's frustrating. I simply don't have the shelf space for these kind of packages. It would help if they had regular cases inside the box alongside the art cards and whatever else they typically bundle in there as I could simply shelve that and store all the other stuff, but they always opt for foldout digipacks instead. I do so adore Lynch and this film though, so may well give into getting this asap (particularly if it does happen to end up one of SC's better discs).

    I desperately need a worthwhile edition of Flash Gordon. The excessively DNRed release out now (at least in the U.S.) is horrifying. In other news, if this French site is accurate, we're looking sometime around June for a 45th anniversary edition of Jaws.

    More games coming to Game Pass soon, including A Plague Tale: Innocence. I'm pretty stoked about A Plague Tale, which arrives tomorrow. That's one I've wanted to play since it came out last year. Good timing, too, as I just finished up Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order last night. 😋

    Finally finished Season 2 last night. It is pure pulp, but it keeps you watching. We enjoyed it throughout. Have you checked out "Money Heist"? It's a great, ridiculous, compelling, caper series. Carlos.

    Alas... I don’t think there are any blanket aspect ratio changes, though. Like, it’ll change if it was shot a certain way, but they aren’t manipulating films that weren’t. I don’t like it, though.
