  1. So that leaves Toys for Bob and Beenox left to do any Crash or Spyro games in the near future.

    1. Bobnik


      It was lucky Beenox even got away from the CoD mines for CTR. Too bad they're back there starting with Black Ops Cold War

      So yeah, only Toys for Bob are left.

    2. AlphaRuby


      All their studios bounce in and out of being support devs to main devs and back again.

      It's like ActiBlizz play tennis with them.

    3. Graystripe2000


      Uhhh, Activision Shanghai helped with Crash 4. There’s also that.

  2. Sitting through a 3-hour cut of a Zack Snyder-led BvS was exhausting enough, but a 4-hour one of Justice League?

    Either this'll be the best DC film ever, or a horrible, dull slog.

  3. The 'MCU' in X-Men Dark Phoenix will never stop being, for me, the most hilariously bad rib in a comic book movie to another studio.

  4. The things I was thinking about going into WW84 did not include "Will there be  a new member of the League?" lol

  5. Just started Ben 10 (2005).

    The grandad is voiced by the Colonel from MGS? Cool.

    1. Sonictrainer


      ...huh. I never realized that...

  6. Well, Wonder Woman 1984 sucked.

    No idea what it wants to be, the main heroes come off really awful, and it's so scatterbrained.

    1. Strickerx5


      I'm still trying to figure out how they got to where it is. I don't think it was rushed or anything. It's as if they were told halfway through a work day "Hey, Wonder Woman 2 has been greenlite. I need the final script by EOD." It literally feels that mistakenly put together.

      Like as if they just had a few ideas they wanted to do but didn't think of a way to actually tie them together into a movie.

      Also, real talk, the movie was delayed for months and that's the best CGI they could render for it? Some of these shots made that final fight in Black Panther look decent.

    2. Speederino


      Yeah, massive letdown. I re-watched the first movie after seeing it and god, the difference is night and day.

    1. DarkRula


      And many more studios hopefully to also come on board to make some more varied experiences. It'll be interesting to see just how this open world plays out.

  7. Plot Twist: The way to defeat the main villain of the last game you played is to shave them bald.

    1. TheOcelot


      What if the villian is already bald?

    2. AlphaRuby


      shave his body hair

      How do you shave calamity Gannon?

    4. Solister


      Me playing Cities Skylines: look both sides



  8. Can anyone name a non-Sonic game or series where people (reviewers or otherwise) messed up in a game but they blamed the game for something that was their own fault?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Well there was this


    2. Diogenes


      that's probably been every game at some point

    3. Strickerx5


      I think Ace Combat 7 saw a similar event.

      Apparently, some reviewers played the game using the novice playstyle (the game had two control modes where one gave the player more freedom with certain maneuvers while this one limited control for newcomers and ease of play) but then turned around and complained about the flight mechanics being too restrictive/ aged.

      Idk, my friend was telling me about it when I was first getting into the game so I didn't pay too much attention. I believe the overall argument is that some went into the game thinking that the planes were/ should control like they do in GTA or something when that's never been the case for the series.

    4. Teoskaven


      Devil May Cry 5 has something kinda built for that: the music actually is variable and changes depending on your performance in combat (the better you do, the more "complete" it sounds), so a lot of people as soon as they learned this started betting on what journalists would say the game's music suck because they could not play the game and placed the blame on it. PCGamer took the bait, hook, line and sinker for the Gamescom preview.

    5. Wraith


      It happens with game reviewers/streamers with just about everything. 

  9. The last game you played is gonna have a crossover with Fast & Furious.

    1. Jango


      Fall Guys and Furious

    2. Misty Milo

      Misty Milo


      could you imagine?....

    3. Bobnik


      FF Tactics

      Or I guess F&F Tactics

    4. Dejimon11


      King of Fighters 98: Fast and Furious edition 

    5. Harkofthewaa


      So Todd's gonna port Skyrim to F&F then? Vin Diesel gets in a bad crash, the screen fades to black and as he comes to he hears "Hey, you, you're finally awake"...

      Hyrule warriors: Age of fast

      Now with more Rolling goron racing!

  10. I dunno, I've never liked those reviews that swear they're overall positive and recommending of something, yet the review itself is skewed more towards the negative.

    Which is it, do you recommend it or not?

    1. Celestia


      It depends, I could see that being someone trying to be honest about the work's flaws. When I recommend something to someone I'll cover the negatives too just to give my full perspective and as a "warning" (lol). And pretty much everyone has one thing they really like even if it has a lot of problems.

  11. Can't remember the mainland Europe release date, but Star is hitting Disney+ UK on February 23rd.

  12. I will say, Kamala is the best part of the story of Avengers 2020 so far.

  13. Started playing Avengers PS4 single-player.

    So far it's fine.

  14. So I've tried a couple of my new games out.

    Star Wars Squadrons had a installation error, but after reinstalling it, it ran just fine.

    Avengers 2020 ran like a Powerpoint presentation and I had to uninstall it and reinstall. I don't know if it's had an effect since the console is now occupied.

  15. Maybe not quite a boss worthy track, but still miles better than the mess we got in the game proper.

  16. I was thinking of buying Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but PS Plus in January is doing me a solid on that one.

  17. Power cut round here.

    1. AlphaRuby


      power's back now

  18. What I’m hearing about the non-spoiler reviews of WW84...oof.

    For those here who have seen it, what are your non-spoilery thoughts

    1. Marcello


      I thought it was pretty good 

    2. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      It was okay...

      very mild spoilerz to follow


      but there are holes in the logic of the plot and the special effects leave a ton to be desired. Downright bad in a ton of places, including where it mattered most


    3. NegaMetallix


      I thought it was alright, but not as good as the first film. It does have a few issues that should've been ironed out.

  19. If there's one Kingdom Hearts game I'd buy in a heartbeat, it's one focusing on the more adult IP's Disney own, like Kingsman or Die Hard or Alien, Speed even.


    1. Teoskaven


      Can't wait to see a James Bond world in Kingdom Hearts.

      I think Warner Bros would take better advantage of a potential MGM buy, and I'm not keen on them either.

    4. Ferno


      We probably shoulda let Comcast buy Fox tbh. Disney is too big now. But at the time everyone was rooting for Disney to buy it just for the MCU expansions when no one even seems to care about it anymore after Endgame.

    5. Teoskaven


      Problem with that is that Comcast is arguably a worse company in terms of treating its subsidiaries, so it's not really a change for the better.
      Frankly, i'm not too keen on these scenarios that say we're reaching more and more a small group of monopolies rather than multiple movie companies each with their own set of IPs.

      Considering that WB owns the bulk of MGM’s film library as it is (the pre-1986 stuff; they also own a decent amount of UA’s films as well); I’ll be surprised if AT&T doesn’t get them in the end. The big pushing point for them would be to virtually reunite MGM’s entire film library (and most of UA’s) under one roof. If another conglomerate was able to snatch up MGM, that opportunity is permanently gone.

      Granted, AT&T are busy trying to offload the massive amount of debt they have from buying up DirecTV and TimeWarner as it is, but MGM’s asking price is significantly less than those two ($5B vs $67B / $85B), and I presume they could bring the price down with some negotiation.

  20. Your favourite game series but no-one is actually there

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      I feel bad for the guy who really really likes Pong

    2. Supah Berry
    3. Kittea


      Inkopolis would look less colourful but otherwise it wouldn't have changed much.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Tetris is worthless without its vast cast and deep story.

    5. Jingilator


      Might as well watch the Disney movies that directly follow their plot in KH, because that's what the series mostly is gameplay-wise.

    6. Polkadi~☆


      Some games I like, which attempt to fill you with fear and dread, would be even more unsettling if there were no one around.

  21. Nearly a full week now I’ve hit my 10,000 step-a-day target :)

  22. https://news.sky.com/story/games-giant-electronic-arts-gatecrashes-725m-codemasters-takeover-12160582

    You thought Take Two were buying Codemasters?

    Surprise! It’s EA!

    1. FReaK


      aaaand another game studio down the drain...

    2. Teoskaven


      That's... somehow even worse.

    3. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Oh god. That's terrible news.

    4. AlphaRuby


      If it wasn't for the simple fact of EA putting in more money, I question why anyone would want EA anywhere near them considering their history.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      When things go from bad to devastatingly worse

    6. Supah Berry
    7. Teoskaven


      I don't even understand the reasoning behind this, Codemasters nowadays is just doing racing car games, and EA has already 2 IPs of those under it's command, Burnout and Need for Speed. What interest do they have for a third one is beyond me.

    8. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      @Teoskaven F1 is pretty different to either of those (if I know Burnout and NFS correctly). They can treat F1 more like FIFA or NBA.

    9. Teoskaven


      Was more referencing Dirt Rally.

    10. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend


      I think the same could apply to that IP too to be honest.
