  • mdinger rated Blair Witch a score of 5.
  • mdinger posted a message on the post Borderlands 3 Review - Six Sirens, One God-Queen.

    @consolehaven: Depends on the game. I love my RPGs at 80+ hours (to tell a complex story and fully develop chars, it can easily take that long), but for shallow shooters I generally prefer for them to...

  • mdinger rated Control a score of 8.
  • mdinger rated Journey a score of 7.
  • mdinger rated Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden a score of 7.
  • mdinger posted a message on the post Amazon And Paramount Are Developing An Event Horizon TV Show.

    If municipal councils recycled as well as Hollywood, there would be no landfills. How about some original IP Hollywood? Cashing in on established properties (and awkwardly shoehorning in current year ...

  • mdinger rated Alpha Protocol a score of 7.
  • mdinger rated Prey a score of 7.
  • mdinger posted a message on the post Saw Reboot Now Shooting, Samuel L. Jackson Joins Chris Rock In Cast.

    More proof that Hollywood studios have become so risk adverse, that rebooting IPs that aren't even dead yet is now fine. Everything is either a reboot, remake or sequel now. A Harry Potter, Fast and ...

    @robertbyronz: Also it's on PC (via Origin).

  • mdinger posted a message on the post The Rise Of Skywalker Will Reveal Who Rey's Parents Are.

    @spacemedafighterx: Yeah, but you still need to explain why Yoda/Obi Wan didn't help Luke in RoJ. And you definitely now expect them (and now Luke also) to help Rey defeat Kylo going forward, right?

    @aross2004: Fair enough. For me the introduction of hyperspace ramming in The Last Jedi irreversibly broke the established canon. Given how effective it is, if they don't have purpose built ram ships ...

    @aross2004: Disney is going to see that as a challenge now.

    @Barighm: I always assumed Anakin was Palpatine's son (in my head canon). Would explain why Palpatine took such an interest in him in the prequels.

    @blowfish82: Wut, I was agreeing with - i.e. that Kristin isn't as bad as many think. I produced a few examples of where I thought she was ok. That is all. Perhaps you accidentally replied to the wron...

    @blowfish82: Yeah just watch Adventureland and The Yellow Handkerchief, and you quickly realise she isn't as bad as many think she is. That said, what has she done recently? In Hollywood, you're reall...

  • mdinger posted a message on the post The Sinking City Review - Draining.

    @lewst2k1: Everyone knows the only two scores worth considering on Metacritic are 1 and 10 - it's a binary system. 3 is still far too conservative and trying too hard to be reputable.

  • mdinger posted a message on the post The Sinking City Review - Draining.

    @aiat_gamer: I wouldn't use Outerwilds as an example of a "good" Epic exclusive. The game is nigh on unplayable imo with among the worst/jankiest controls I've experienced in the last decade. Now the ...

  • mdinger posted a message on the post Sea Of Solitude Confronts The Topic Of Mental Health In An Empowering Way.

    The core scenario sounds almost exactly like that of the 2D platformer Gris, i.e. a visual representation of depression/loneliness that is slowly restored as the game progresses. Still, it's good to s...

  • mdinger posted a message on the post Marvel To Re-Release Avengers: Endgame With New After-Credits Footage In Theaters.

    @Decoy77: They did not. This is just a desperate attempt to take it. And it will work - they only need ~US$30M more to beat Avatar. Not inflation adjusted of course; taking that into account Gone With...
