    Dynasty Warriors must be well past 13 games now, if you count the spin-offs. RoTK is actually a pretty fun read, though, and with the historical and cultural significance and how easy the games are...

    Work and various other frustrations has meant my playtime has dropped to almost nothing (half an hour over the past couple of weeks, Steam tells me) but I thought I'd bite the bullet and finally...

    No, seriously, Audition is nothing like Hostel except on a superficial level. You can argue it doesn't present its ideas well enough, but that's something else entirely. Hostel is "foreigners are...

    Sequel is much better*, but the first one is still an absolute steal at a dollar, and yes, it's the kind of game you can never finish (I didn't) and still feel as if you got more than your money's...

    Whereas I quite liked - if not loved - the first one and thought Game of Shadows was vapid Hollywood nonsense with virtually no soul at all. But then I don't reach for the smelling salts every time...

    It isn't the best film or anything, but yes, Blue Sky used to have some terrific art at times. Hell, even Ice Age (the first movie, at least, I never saw the others) had some lovely clean design and...

    Go read the manga. :P



    He never intended it to be a film in the first place, and IMO it shows. The world is fantastic, sure (my father was a scientific artist who's studied insects most of his...

    Plenty of Disney's films are legitimately a lot of fun and very well made. Recent, too. They're just not classics in my book. The earlier ones are a bit like a Black Sabbath album - no, hear me out....

    Well, Ghibli haven't been going as long as Disney, and I think you can probably argue without Disney there'd be no Ghibli... but even so I suppose if I had to pick one, I'd probably go with Ghibli....

    The Phantom Menace wasn't very good, but yes, it was far better than Attack of the Clones, which basically had the Yoda/Dooku fight and that might as well have been it, because nothing else stuck...

    Well... while I'm not saying you're wrong per se I tried the first book of the First Law trilogy and thought it was fairly dire. Didn't get very far with it, admittedly, but I honestly felt it was a...

    Yup, most of the reviews (from people I like/am interested in) seemed to say "The politics are repellent and the story is dull, which is a shame, because the action's pretty awesome". It's one reason...

    It is beyond clunky. It was also quite honestly one of my favourite games of last year. Absolutely wonderful little piece of myth-making. Also, the soundtrack is awesome, even if it is explicitly an...

    Always worth it, though they do slide somewhat in quality as they go on, IMO. Still better than almost any other urban fantasy out there, mind, but I think Aaronovitch is playing far too long a game...
