    Dogville on DVD
    Both John Wick flicks on 4k Blu-ray
    And Snatch on regular Blu-ray (only noticed recently I'm missing that gem)

    Just topping up my collection.
    Jw... why not just stream movies? Do you not only watch them once or twice anyways?
    1. Quality: Yeah, you get 4k steams, but ultimately they still fall short of a 4k Blu-ray or sometimes even a regular one. And I'm not only talking about the video quality, sounds quality is dreadful on most streaming sites.

    2. You can usually only stream popular stuff. Snatch wouldn't be much of a problem. But Dogville? Or any other Lars von Trier movie? Or how about most of Sergio Leone's work? Or take Kill Bill. There is a cut of both movies that is exclusiv to Japanese DVDs, all other version feature the international cut. Or just take a look at most the flicks from Hammer Productions, you won't find them on any streaming platform. Hell, they are tricky to find on any physical discs.

    And as Hughesy pointed out, I watch many films I own far more than one or two times. I lost count how many times I watched A Fistful of Dollars, Clerks, Pulp Fiction, Godfather, or Blade Runner.

  2. Dark Souls: Remastered

    What is there to say? It's one of the greatest games ever made. What do you want from me? Of course I was going to buy the remaster as long as its no technical dumpster fire.
    Now we only need a Demon's Souls remaster and Bloodborne in glorious 60 FPS.

  3. Oh boy, I've watched some Detroit. Become Human streams and the writing sure is exactly as I feared. Pretty on the nose, cliche, and corny as fuck.

    Bloody shame I tell you, I was expecting something more akin to Blade Runner, but then again, David Cage never was the best writer.

    And of course, he went out the way you'd expect from an industry legend like him. I have to admit, this one hurts. I'm going to miss him.

    Agree with the pessimism surrounding the blue flag removal idea. It sounds great on paper until a great race for the lead is ruined just so we don't disturb the battle for 15th place. Illogical. 

    The only F1 TV personality I've seen publicly in favour of the proposal is David Croft. That alone should be a massive red flag to the idea. 
    Don't worry, as soon as Hamilton would lose a certain victory due to a backmarker hindering him, Crofty would be all over Sky demanding blue flags to come back.

  6. I get the proposal. I do. However, first things first, I don't think it's going to change the situation all that dramatically. We had simpler wings once upon a time, yet, the overtaking problem was as present as it is now. Will this proposal increase the number of overtakes? Yeah, sure. But I don' think it's going to be nearly as much as some experts and fans expect.

    Second point, I hate that we already have a change in regulations. The current ones are not even two freaking seasons old, the top teams seem fairly close together ensuring a tight race to the winner's trophy, and here we are, messing about with rules & regulations once more. What if one team nails it and dominates next year like Red Bull, Ferrari or Mercedes once did? Was that worth the five extra overtakes in Hungary?

    Third and last point, the teams can now throw away a majority of their aero R&D from the past few seasons. Pissing away year's worth of data, the smaller teams will still struggle, the bigger teams will adapt surely, but once more the cars are getting slowed down, which I was never a big fan of.

    Oh, and let's not forget that the teams lose once more areas of the car in which they are no longer allowed to develop properly. Fuck, at this point we are getting closer and closer to a spec series, and last I checked, that's not what F1 ever wanted to be.



    Of course, that's all just my opinion. And what the fuck do I know? I'm just some asshole on the internet.

  7. No. Simple as that.

    You see, it would be one thing for them not to fix their core game mode. Sure, that sucks, but hey, buggy Codemasters games are pretty much an industry standard at this point.

    What really takes the p*ss is this though: http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/comment/314462

    They blatantly stole someone else's work. Yeah, maybe they didn't know that one of their designers did this, but then why can't they be bothered to make an official statement? An apology? Something?

    Also, it's a pretty f*cking sad state of affairs when a blatant copy is much better designed than the in-house made car models. Like, how embarrissing is that?!


    So yeah, I'm pretty much done with CM at this point. It makes no difference for them, obviously. They still have their brainless defenders, their YouTubers who couldn't find a negative thing to say about them to save their life, and they have an Esport event generating good publicity for them. But I'll be damned if I'd support a studio like this.

    Yeeeah, quite frankly, Turn 10/Microsoft can p*ss off for all I care. Real shame since I very much enjoyed Forza Horizon 3 and their previous Motorsport titles, especially the 4th one, but I can't bring myself to support this greedy behaviour in any way shape or form.
