re: Anyone else looking forward to R type final 2? - slough
I've reached two of the three endings now, and the more I've seen of the game the more I've come to like it. One stage in particular (7.1) really impressed me, but there are a lot of good ones. ...

re: Anyone else looking forward to R type final 2? - slough
This game is pretty tough, which I guess can be expected from the R-Type series. I like how the difficulty levels are vaguely insulting. Speaking of which, I noticed that there are significant differences based on the difficulty level you select. The first boss, for example, is drastically diffe...

re: The Wailing (2016) - Must See Horror - slough
There's one scene involving emesis that you just never want to end. One of my favorite things about this movie is its depiction of an exorcism ceremony. I have no idea how accurate it is but it's quite different from what we're used to in Western horror. My favorite Korean horror film is A T...

re: Anyone else looking forward to R type final 2? - slough
Absolutely. I backed the Kickstarter campaign. I still think it's funny that they stuck with the April Fool's Day title. When they asked for votes on which stage from each old game to remake, I knew the one I'd like to see from Delta wouldn't get chosen (stage 5). I tried the R-Type Final 2 d...

re: Sekiro - slough
I beat the bull the other night, which opened up all kinds of new areas. I've spent a while exploring and soon I will return to working on more of the bosses. I died on Mme Butterfly's second form but I can probably beat her now that I have a few more upgrades. I think I kind of subconsciousl...

Sekiro - slough
I didn't think I'd play this game, even though I adore all of the other From Software action RPGs. Without the ability to summon players, I was sure that a boss somewhere along the way would be too much for me. But I finally gave in and tried it. I almost quit several times very early on and I s...

re: What is the best video game vehicle? - slough
[quote]Have you played the remaster on Switch?[/quote] Yes, on PS4. I don't like that they added talking but I think they did a nice job with it otherwise. I especially like the way the second game gets a little stranger in its environments. I stopped playing Zero 2 after encountering a diffi...

re: How old is too old? - slough
How socially acceptable video games are can vary depending on context, but the good thing is that you don't have to care. Sometimes when I think I might be in danger of growing out of them, I realize that it's just because nothing has come along in a while that's really captivated me. But someth...

re: Recommendations for a bloody, violent Western novel that isn’t Blood Meridian? - slough
Wraiths of the Broken Land by S. Craig Zahler is excellent. It's over-the-top in a good way. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17609155-wraiths-of-the-broken-land?ac=1...

re: The Exorcist - slough
I saw this for the first time pretty recently, though I read the book years ago. I like the book a lot better than the movie. That said, one of my very favorite movies is Exorcist 3. It was written and directed by Blatty. The original cut was quite subtle and there was pressure to add more excite...

re: Adding games to NES Classic. - slough
This is very easy to do and there's quite a bit of extra space on the NES Classic (about 300 MB). You're unlikely to run out of space unless you try adding a complete ROM set. https://www.lifewire.com/add-games-nes-classic-4586505 The most time-consuming part is finding images to use as box...

re: Sci-fi movie recommendation: Coherence - slough
If you like Coherence, I would also recommend a movie called Triangle. It's not related in any way, other than doing things you might not expect. But I would also recommend reading absolutely nothing about it or even looking at stills, if possible. Even the genre is kind of a mystery, ideally. ...

re: Your personal game of the year and what's on your radar next year? - slough
My favorite game released in 2020 was Disaster Report 4. But that one definitely is not for everyone. I'm looking forward to Elden Ring, which I assume will come out next year (and hopefully on PS4 and not just PS5). ...

Movies Anywhere "Screen Pass" Feature - slough
I don't know whether anyone here uses Movies Anywhere, but they recently added a way to share movies you own. You can share a single movie or send a list and let someone choose. https://www.lifewire.com/share-movies-with-others-on-movies-anywhere-5076481 The Ultraviolet platform that Movies An...

If You Enjoy Truly Bizarre Games, Try Golden Light (PC) - slough
A Russian software developer lost his job and decided to make this game instead of looking for another job. It's a surreal first-person "roguelike" game with horror and dark comedy elements. It's unique, to say the least. [link=(https://store.steampowered.com/app/1245430/Golden_Light/)]Steam...

re: Prospect on Netflix - slough
I saw this a while back and I liked that, unlike a lot of science fiction, it followed characters that had little to no influence. For example, I'd like to see a Star Wars movie about the daily life of a janitor on the Death Star. (This story would not have a happy ending, I suppose.)...

re: Demon's Souls Remake Thread - slough
I don't know. The more footage I see of this, the less I like it. I think it will do a good job of showing off what the PS5 can do, but there seem to be a lot of misguided character redesigns, additional sounds, and extra effects. And while some of the environments look great, others look just ...

re: I watched airplane for the first time - slough
One gag that I didn't notice on my first few watches was at the end of the dog scene when the pilot walks through the mirror. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4tU3ZRFoUI Police Squad! got a Blu-ray release not too long ago. That's one of the few things on the same level as Airplane! for me. ...
