  2. The Colour out of Space -6.5/10- It's alright, its all style/atmosphere over substance but it kind of needs some substance there as the cosmic horror needs a punch up as the movie tends to fall back on to the Lovecraftian the unknown is scary too much. Jay and Silent Bob Reboot -7.5/10- If you like Kevin's schtick and are a fan of his work you will probably like this. It's made for the hardcore Smith fans so I found it hysterical and loved all the jokes and references that can be seen in the background plus it has a beautiful cap for what a Reboot should be.

    I’m curious about the angle they are going with this. I don’t think the title is on the line so are they trying to set up both mania title shots in one match? (the one who eliminates brock and the winner) or is brock going to win and then face....? Not sure they’d serve Edge and his dodgy neck up to brock for dismantling at mania either but stranger things have happened. Looking forward to seeing how it pans out!
  6. RIP Terry Jones, you were a very naughty boy and will be missed.
  7. If you always wanted to play table top adventures, but have no friends, don;t worry, Deathtrap Dungeon will bring Eddie Marsan into your house for you. Blurb: Branching Narrative has today released its debut title, Deathtrap Dungeon: The Interactive Video Adventure, its new take on the classic Fighting Fantasy gamebook by Ian Livingstone now available on PC and Mac. Deathtrap Dungeon: The Interactive Video Adventure showcases the company’s new Interactive Fiction engine and stars British actor Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan, The Gentlemen, Deadpool 2), who acts as narrator and guide in this high-quality interactive video production that faithfully recreates the beloved fantasy book. Deathtrap Dungeon, arguably the most popular book in the Fighting Fantasy series, was originally released in 1984 and challenges the player to survive the Trial of Champions that takes place in the labyrinth of Fang, full of fiendish traps and deadly creatures set by the devious Baron Sukumvit. Matt Spall, Branching Narrative, said: “We’re excited to finally release our innovative take on this beloved Fighting Fantasy classic. Collaborating with Eddie Marsan and Ian Livingstone has been a pleasure and we look forward to welcoming a whole new generation eager to take on Baron Sukumvit’s deadly challenge.” Branching Narrative’s Deathtrap Dungeon: The Interactive Video Adventure is delivered as a high quality video stream with Eddie Marsan prompting the player to make choices and direct the flow, offering enhanced gameplay over other recent high-profile ‘interactive movie’ offerings, fully utilising the mechanics from the classic Fighting Fantasy book.
  8. Looking tasty Blurb: Intragames Co. Ltd has announced that Bookbound Brigade, a new spin on the established Metroidvania genre from Italian developer Digital Tales, will be released digitally on 30 January 2020, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC. It will take the likes of Dracula, King Arthur, Queen Victoria, Nikola Tesla, Cassandra, Dorothy Gale, Sun Wukong the Monkey King and Robin Hood to assemble and avenge a world plunged into chaos following the theft of the ‘Book of Books’, a volume encompassing every single work of fiction and non-fiction ever written. Scripted by British comedy writer Dean Wilkinson (Little Big Planet), Bookbound Brigade is about beating the hell out of historical and literary characters you studied in school by leading a dream team of real and fictional heroes through a 2D side-scrolling platform-adventure. Get ready for a unique take on the Metroidvania-style platform-adventure game, with 2D side-scrolling graphics: explore, fight, backtrack, grow your skills and tackle challenging quests and puzzles across 5 varied worlds – from the Tower of Babel to Victorian London, passing by the lost city of R’lyeh, home to ancient god Cthulhu. There is no single hero in Bookbound Brigade: you play as a party of 8 unique characters, each with their own traits and skills affecting behaviour, so work together in Formation! To successfully navigate the environments, you will need to choose the right Brigade formation: standard, line, column or wheel. Meet over 50 distinctively hand-drawn NPCs, drawing from generations of famous historical and literary characters.
  9. OPPO has been awarded the 2019 Top Brand in the Mobile Phone Category by Consumer New Zealand! Based on my own reviews on this site, especially for the Reno 10x Zoom which I still fawn over, I have to agree with Consumer on this one. Well deserved Oppo! Blurb: Smartphone maker, OPPO has been awarded the 2019 Top Brand in the Mobile Phone Category by Consumer New Zealand, highlighting the brand’s continued success locally. OPPO’s Managing Director, Morgan Halim says: “We are delighted to be named a Consumer NZ Top Brand. The accolade is a true testament to our brand ethos and reinforces exactly what OPPO as a customer-centric business has set out to do. That is to create products that consumers genuinely love,” “As a relatively young brand in the New Zealand market, to stand alongside only a select number of companies that hold a Top Brand title is an incredibly humbling achievement,” adds Halim. Only 16 brands in New Zealand carry a Consumer Top Brand title across a number of appliance and technology categories, and there is not always a winner. The category honour hasn’t been awarded to a smartphone brand since 2017 and OPPO is one of only four brands to receive it overall. Consumer’s Top Brand Award carries strict review criteria across three variables: consumer test results, customer satisfaction, and reliability. OPPO came out on top in the customer research findings with over 83 per cent of OPPO customers “very satisfied” with their mobile phone; significantly more than the industry average. OPPO models were also found to have excellent reliability, with 99 per cent having no faults. Paul Smith, Head of Testing from Consumer says: “OPPO was a clear standout for 2019. This is a challenger brand in a competitive market, bringing an enviable edge and new innovations. We couldn’t fault OPPO in our testing and the results ask other mobile phone brands to step up.” The news lands just as OPPO makes a series of new appointments to expand and bolster its team. Morgan Halim has been appointed to Managing Director (following his previous role as Sales Director), while Daimler Teves has joined in a newly created role as Marketing Director, alongside a number of other key sales recruits.
  10. I don’t think they will ever stop releasing 2 versions of the game, as the intention was the developers used it as a way to force/encourage trading and collecting. it also has the incredibly positive side effect of a bunch of people buying multiples.

  13. Been on a KI binge at the moment and reminded me how much I love it's soundtrack.

    Wrestling

    I'd be very surprised if Edge was number 2. It's more likely going to be Curt Hawkins. Unless Vince wants to punish someone.
  15. I also finished with the good ending, I looked at the evil ending on YouTube and it was pretty funny. Just completed RIME, one of the old PS Plus games. Bit of a hodgepodge of Zelda BOW, Journey and any other walking simulator with light puzzle and platforming mechanics. It was okay, bit boring at times and the ending was signposted if you were getting many of the collectibles. Looked okay though. I was kinda hoping for something more because one of their earlier games - Sexy Brutale was amazing. Will try one of their VR games when they come on sale.
  16. For all those Pop Collectors out there MA has a code for London Toy Fair Pops. Use the promo code 2020LTF for a discount on ALL London Toy Fair 2020 Pop!
  17. Add Dying Light 2 to the delayed bandwagon. Although it only had a vague release date in the first place.

  19. Iron Man- 9/10 I love this movie. Its awesome, I always feel the first half is way better than the last half though. The Incredible Hulk- 8/10 Great movie, I am amazed I have not seen this before now. Iron Man 2- 9/10 Again really great. Stark is amazing, and this feels like awesome progression from the first. A shame they did not keep the same actor for Rhodes. I liked the first guy, but I feel the second guy could have pulled it off too, if he were in it from the start. Thor 8/10- I don't know why, but having this in the timeline feels far fetched, but they seem to be pulling it off nicely. Really enjoyed it, Loki needs a punch in the teeth, so he pulls that off nicely. Captain America- 9/10 Great cast for this, I always welcome Priscilla Queen of the Desert as a Villian. Soo good. I love how it all ties Stark etc into everything. Loving this series so far.
  20. I remember now why I don't do exercise... Still, should be worth it in the long run I suppose

  27. Joining a little late Started the year with 3417 trophies and 52 Platinums Earned 182 trophies so far, six of which are platinums including Burly Men At sea and Jedi Fallen Order. Not so proud of a few which were in my backlog that I finally got around to playing e.g My name is mayo and Nubla. These were not good games. However as Dvst8u said
