  1. Well, instead of posting your highscore here and timing the thing you can simply do it all in-game. With the physics changes quite a few tables are slightly different. I noticed this really in Skyrim, hitting the skillshot is much more difficult now.
  2. Pinball FX3 is out. With cross play between PS4 and Steam; and XBox, Windows 10 and Steam. With custom tournaments. Most of your Pinball FX2 will be imported in 3 for free.

    There's a completely different comic style of the US vs Europe, there European comics have way deeper lore and leave much more to the readers imagination due to the fact that there's maybe a story once a year and not every two weeks. I'm sure that certain person has a big backstory in the comics. Just like the .

    Yep, and that's why it's a horrible medium to present a large and complex world. Apparently the Dark Tower is also suffering from it.
  8. Valerian

    Well I liked the movie, so you are both wrong. I never read any of the comics, but after seeing the movie it's really clear that the series was a big influence on Besson when he wrote Fifth Element. For the Fifth Element Besson was able to construct the whole world and characters from scratch. But for this movie he had to write a story for a well established world, and to make it work try to introduce viewers to this world within a short time. The Fifth Element is really compacted as a world for just what is needed for the movie, as there does not exist anything outside of the movie. A sequel to Fifth Element makes little sense. Another Valerian movie will make sense, because they can have a butt load of other adventures in that world. I would really like another movie in 5 years or so.
  9. Thanks for making me feel old by mentioning UT3, and making it worse by saying that it was "before Idle Thumbs".
  10. Full Throttle Remastered

    Checked out the first 10 minutes. It was not until I pressed F1 my mind registered the remastering of everything. Looking forward to the play the other minutes.

    Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition This is basically a re-release of the original with GWFL replaced with Steam. Just like the first release it is still a fun game. Over the top action where at every kill you feel like a real bad ass, combined with over the top (dumb) dialogues. It's simply great. And the game still looks cool, except for the lip sync... that looks really dated. The large detailed and colorful scenery is still a really refreshing sight in FPS games. Because this version is now released by Gearbox they added a option to play as Duke Nukem instead. This is a basically a model and VO swap for the main character. Nothing really changes, except that the work on Duke Nukem is quite bad. It's best to play it with the original character.

    Stories Untold Holy crap this game is good. If you look at the media it looks similar to that Stranger Things TV series. It sort of is. I can't tell much more, it would spoil too much. Maybe The Stanley Parable but as 80s horror would be the best description?

    The Interactive Adventures of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy A graphical adventure game. It's ok. There are some annoying standard adventure game mistakes in it, like lack of quickly exiting a scene and a lot of going back and forth between scenes. Also had to do a lot of pixel hunting to find things which I needed to complete the various puzzles (only later found out there's a `show hotspot` thing with the right mouse button). So a lot of wandering around trying to figure out what do to. You could say it's like those classic adventure games from the mid 90s. (Not as overly complex as them though). The game contains a lot of references to movies/games/... from the 80s and 90s. Sadly, in only a few cases you can look at them. Generally only plot elements are interactive. This might be to save cost on voice over work, but I wouldn't have minded just a text only description for minor stuff.
