    Don't you dare slag that movie. That was my first-ever boob sighting in a movie when I was a wee lad.

  2. https://www.starwars.com/news/indiana-jones-game In major news for fans of the cinematic icon, Lucasfilm Games announced today that a new Indiana Jones game will be swinging our way, being developed by the award-winning studio, MachineGames, and executive produced by game industry icon Todd Howard of Bethesda Games Studios. The game will tell a wholly original, standalone tale set at the height of the career of the famed adventurer.

  6. I've been playing Monster Hunter on my PS5, 8 feet from my shiny new 85 inch 900H. My daughter has been playing on the PS4 upstairs on a generic Samsung 1080p 56 inch TV from really far away. Last night she came downstairs to watch TV with me in my Home Theater and Monster Hunter was left up on the screen. She said: "Oh my god! This game looks 10x better on your TV than my TV." That is the first time EVER that another human being has agreed that having an optimal viewing experience actually matters. Or is even noticeble. Seriously, my wife NEVER

  7. Finally got my PSVR connected to the PS5. Used an Anker USB hub (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07L32B9C2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) to get the camera, VR processor, and Platinum wireless USB dongle all connected into one rear USB port. External SSD goes into the other. All working just fine (although the wireless headset seems to be more sensitive to interference). Works great, and Star Wars: Squadrons in VR is something to behold.

  9. Four years later... I got back into this last year during the pandemic after getting to the start of Heavensward, the first expansion, back in 2017. I genuinely regret not sticking with it - Realm Reborn was a decent game, Heavensward was quite good, Stormblood was excellent, and Shadowbringers is still early but it is one of the best Final Fantasy stories I’ve ever been gripped by - it takes place in a world where light has won against dark, but as a result the land is a sun-blasted hellscape. I’m still tanking - I was a paladin, spent most of Heavensward

  12. I mean this is pretty late in the game as I don’t generally peruse this thread so unless someone reports something to me or the mods, I can’t deal with it directly but let me reiterate forum policy once again since I just saw this (and the original post): This is a videogame forum - politics and religion are not up for discussion on the general forum. Frankly, the video content above shouldn’t have been posted either much less spurring a discussion surrounding the events at the Capitol. I’m sure there are good places on the internet where you can have those discussions. This isn’t

  13. While I'm not the biggest Ubisoft fan these days, the fact the license seems to be going back into the open allowing various developers to make a pitch for new Star Wars games like it was way back when is great news.

  14. Woah. Glad to see more companies getting a go at Star Wars. I could see a game like The Division doing well with the license.

    I'm 100% Warlock, so I focus on intellect, discipline + mobility mostly. Recovery/resilience is largely useless outside of PvsP in my uneducated opinion. I tend to stick to guns I like rather than the latest with the highest number. Once you're close to cap, it's even easier to ignore the light level - a difference of +1 or +2 is not noticable. Totally agree on not min-maxing. On weapon rolls, I honestly tend not to care - I'm not a high level pvp player or raider, so a minor boost to reload time or stability isn't something I notice. For me mods on armour are where it gets co

    Dragon Quest 11

    So I actually "finished" the game tonight (evil punished, credits rolled), but then there's more to do after that, and not in the "we dumped you back into the open world so you can mop up side quests" sense. I'm actually not sure exactly where this is going, but it seems full on crazy. Looking forward to where it goes next, but I'm kind of glad that I didn't grind too much before the endgame (beat the final boss at lvl 58 I think). If this endgame is the emerald/ruby weapon equivalent, then I'm glad it's post final boss, so it didn't make the end of the story absolutely trivial.

  19. All put together. The light up marquee is nice and not overly bright. They finally added a good scanline filter to the games to give them a CRT look/feel, too! Very much appreciated and it’s a pretty nice filter, too. So many of these companies go for a smeared composite CRT filter which I dislike. This is much more akin to an PVM filter. Their speaker quality has also greatly improved from their earlier cabs. I just wish they gave the option to feed in an external subwoofer. It would make a world of difference and a smaller PC sub would fit right into the cabinet sight unseen.

    Yep, the vendors are all about getting random re-rolls until you find something you like. I'm sitting at 9k tokens for Banshee right now...

  21. Make Way For Tomorrow - One of the greatest films about the Depression + the impact it had afterwards on families. Older couple lose their house, and end up getting "split" between their children as noone will take them both in. There's some humour in how they fit into their socially climbing kids' lifestyles, but really, it's all about the pathos + an incredibly unflinching ending. It's definitely a film of its time in looks, but it's worth a watch if a black & white 1930s pre-war society statement film is in your wheelhouse

  22. In the written MacRumours article, there is mention that the 16” would retain the same piped cooling (or whatever it is). So it could be that the Silicon is the same, but has a little more oomph with better cooling.

  23. Rumours of new MBP 14” and 16” models. Supposedly will have a new “straight edge” design like the current iPads and iPhones, a proper Mag-safe charger is back, a USB-A port is back and the Touch Bar is gone.

  26. Absolutely, that was a big part of the conversation. He says he has access to a place with good ambient daylight. I suggested he go take photos (with any decent camera) of locations in that spot where he might shoot a painting, just to see how the surfaces look on camera...is the light actually even, and consistent.

    No. It says they’ll be sent within 2 weeks of the promotional date, so it could be awhile.

  29. My Fair Lady (Paramount) is apparently on the way in May according to retail listings. That's great news. It was updated to 4k/DV on iTunes not too long ago but with Paramount you can never tell if that's ever going to lead to a disc or not. I had yet to buy the streaming version but I am eager to see it in 4k as it's a Technicolor/Super Panavision 70 production. The disc should be fantastic.

  30. I’m still playing daily and have almost completed all of the side jobs, crime activities and everything else. On the main story I’m at the point of no return so I’m going to do the last remaining side jobs and stuff before finishing the story. I look forward to the patches and updates to make this game better but, I can’t complain - I’ve certainly gotten enough out of it myself and look forward to finishing it. I’m not likely to jump back in again after I finish the story until the DLC releases

  31. Clearly Disney/Lucasfilm's strategy has shifted. I would say for the better, as long as they don't try to do too many games. I prefer the old 1980s-early 90s LucasArts approach of quality over quantity, before they went nuts in the prequel era with a lot of mediocre licensed titles outsourced to developers. I'd love for them to take advantage of their old, non-SW/Indy-related IP, but I very much doubt we'll see that happen.

  34. I’d highly doubt they are anything other than the Arcade versions. Code Mystics is working on it and they did the port of KI for the Xbox One. That comment is likely related to the hardware generally needed for emulating KI, which is a fair point but I think they’ve figured it out. Makes me also wonder about the price.

  35. This is one of those games that you need to commit to. The same is true for most of my favorite games to be honest. You get out what you put in. So I committed to learning and getting better, hoping that I would reach that "Best game of all time" mentality that I'm hearing from YouTubers. That has not happened. But what has happened is this. I've learned more and more about the gameplay, crafting, armor, weapons, and general flow of the game. And NOW I have settled in on a very fun and somewhat obsessive gameplay loop that explains why people love this game so much.

    I started to re-learn about gear stats and modding yesterday.... I wish I hadn’t I am now petrified that I’ll dismantle something that I shouldn’t. There’s also now math involved.

  37. I am very happy with my PS5 being just my fast gaming machine that plays old and new games. I'm primarily playing Monster Hunter PS4 most of the time. A little Squadrons PS4. I played Miles a while ago so I haven't seen next-geny graphics in a while. My PS5 is more like a new PC than a next-gen console with next-gen games. And I'm totally fine with that. Because I see how my PS4 runs sloooooowly and appreciate now being on my snappy new thing. When Horizon and other shiny new games come out it will be xmas all over again.

  42. I finally nutted up to this last week. Purchased the SE digitally on my schway PS5, and frankly I’m having a real blast. Feels a bit more forgiving than previous titles, but it has tremendous combat depth and variety across the characters. Hadn’t really played the series since DMC4, and this is absolutely thr whole package. CAPCOM continues to dazzle on a technical level, with possible the best character models in video game cutscenes. I skipped the ray tracing to optimize performance, and it’s been smooth and lovely the whole time. Each of the three base characters are a real treat, and

  43. I'm sad Sony have not pursued mini-LED in any of their 2021 sets. Their older backlight master drive driven Z9D displays were so, SO good that I can't help but wonder how they might have merged that technology with mini-LED had they felt compelled to do so. What little blooming the Z9D sets had back in the day might well have been reduced to near insignificance with Sony's knowhow and mini-LED. I guess we'll have to see if they do anything in 2022, or whether they announce something later in the year (unlikely since they typically have announced Z models later in the year, but the Z9J was amon

  44. I did! I was thoroughly impressed. Errr, once I put in the correct disc, anyway. I was disappointed for the first few minutes and then realized I'd put in the BD instead. This was an especially appreciated release since I haven't owned Mad Max since the DVD era.

  45. Expensive weekend. As well as the PC upgrade, John Lewis had one of the last brand-new 7D mk ii around, and I couldn’t resist. Not cheap, but then only about the same as a 90D and I think I’ll be happier with it.
