I'm watching Xenoblade 3. It includes a neat RPG for free, too.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

Nah, I don't think so, after Game of Thrones I'm burnt out, I disliked the last few seasons and hated the ending, it has really put me off anything Game of Thrones related for now, I do think it will probably be good though so I'm sure others will find enjoyment in it but for me, I'm just going to be constantly thinking about Game of Thrones whilst watching House of the Dragon, Lol. Maaaybe after a while, and after all the seasons are done, I'll binge watch it, I'm also cautious about feeling screwed again after investing years in a show.

Also it ain't like I'll have to avoid spoilers if I do decide to watch it later cause we already know (mostly) what happened to the Targaryens, Lol.

Saw Prey yesterday and surprisingly enjoyed it, and quite a lot. Have to admit wasn't hugely sold on the trailer but the movie was fairly entertaining overall. Granted I've not seen a Predator film in some time, never mind a good one.. this one is easily one of the better ones. There's some call backs and fun Easter eggs in there for fans, but not so much it takes away from it in a cringe kinda way. The CGI was a bit jank but serviceable though the action scenes were pretty well done and fun to watch. There were some bits I wasn't a fan of but I won't spoil..

Worth a watch for sure and recommended for people on the fence and like the old films.

I'm on season 4 of The sinner. Bill Pullman is a good actor.

Yeah, that show took me by surprise, it's really good!

Currently, I'm watching Banshee, which I slept on for years. I started it to see more of Antony Starr after seeing The Boys, but it's an amazing show in its own right. Gonna rewatch Gomorrah soon since the next season is likely coming in Q1 2023. Rewatching GoT with a guy who never saw, which is cool. We watched "Hardhome" today and he was at the edge of his seat.



Evo 2022



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Garden of Words

Beautiful film, both visually and narratively. Exquisite sense of place and atmosphere, and a moving character study.

Part of my girlfriend's quest to convert me to anime haha.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

TBH I think the movie is almost better than the original. I think a Director's cut could potentially add some more scenes and fix up some of the small things to get it over the line.

Better story theme than juiced up US army guys with overpowered guns.

The Easter eggs were great and even replicated a scene from the original that was cut for the DVD releases because the twats at fox thought it was too much and removed it to downgrade the original Predator to an MA rating from an R.

Nahhh.. nowhere close. People are getting a bit too over board over recency bias hype. Come back and watch the original again and this and then compare them. Imo Predator 2 is a step down from P1 and this follows after that. It was good, but not that great of a movie.

The original was a classic. From the cast to the main character, memorable lines (yeah it was an 80's flick), perfect pacing and action. And the ending fight was sublime. This movie started good but the second half a bit shaky with

Spoiler!
a largely underwhelming conclusion, the main actress was a little dull, the predator a bit naff as were the special effects.

I mean at least the first had a lot of real actors and stunt men in it, and special effects. Prey onoh was a CGI fest with a very unrealistic things in it. One main thing was the small Native American teenager fighting toe to toe against a 7+ foot behemoth that can throw a full sized man feet into the air with ease and go hand to hand

Spoiler!
with a grisly bear.

They could have gotten a more athletic looking person who actually looks like she can fight and not a scrawny looking 20 year old. This also again, follows closely from the other movies, and borrows too much from the older movies and doesn't really have that much of an identity of itself.

Spoiler!
It largely the first film replicated in an another time with some fan service thrown in there.

It was a entertaining watch though, with that said..

Besides, there are different species of Predators if we're going by lore. The original Jungle Predator has a laser cannon so he was probably a lot more experienced in hunting and if we go by P2, that one had a lot of trophies.

Spoiler!
This one was fresh off the pad and hunting whatever he could find that was worthy of a kill.
