Rampage film review - even shallower than the arcade game

Tyronne

4 days ago

Both me and my wife saw it, I knew what rampage was and she had no idea it was an olde game - did it spoil our enjoyment of it in any way - of course not as it was just some brainless fun with some laughs.

Sometimes reviewers appear to be disappearing up their own arses when it comes to films like this - it is what it is - a popcorn flick where you can turn your brain off and have some escapist fun from life for a few hours.

Not every movie has to be `Citizen Kane`.

The Netherlands declares some loot boxes are gambling

Tyronne

@mariocamacho - Retarded?
Really?
Missing the point and being incredibly offensive at the same time.

I loathe them for the way there is no protection for those who have addictive personalites and I loathe them for their sheer open greed in putting them in the games in the first place.

Any safeguards which prevent children from gambling practices is never a bad thing and I can fully see how the creep of these practices has gone under the radar of parents of children who play these games.Not everyone is a gamer, like any hobby there are things which happen under the hood that if you are not interested you will have no knowledge of whatsoever and having the measures in place such as what Holland is doing will help notify parents of such things if they are unaware of them.

Why bother calling it `Black Ops 4` with the SP element being removed when all its boiling down to is a game which could be called `Copycat shooter - generic bandwagon edition`?

Ohh Zombies - like how many other games at the moment - even Far cry 5 is getting zombies in it as part of the season pass!

I am 45 and watching 99% people playing games on youtube or twitch just leaves me cold and I simply cannot see the fascination as most of the time they are played by people you not only could never get tired of punching, but the shite that comes out of their mouths is just incredible.
The remaining 1% include people such as Robbaz, worthabuy and Glove and Boots (but they sadly have not done anything for a while).
I still find playing a game much more enjoyable than watching it be played and for me that will never change.

And for those of you wondering where the music is from in the video above in the main text - it`s `Zoolook` by Jean Michel Jarre - It sure was bugging me til I realised what it was, and even then that was because of a c64 sid version of it that lead me to the real thing.

(edit) or I could have just bloody looked at the video on the main youtube site where somebody had already put that bit of info in.

Quite looking forward to the web page with a countdown clock on it that will then lead to another page with the teaser video and some audio upon it that some sad bastard will put through a visualiser that reveals a picture of something vague but connected to tomb raider in some way, which in turn leads to a web page with a picture on it which if examined by another sad bastard will result in the link to the main game video.

Oh PR - such painful to see wankery.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 review

Blimey, my review crystal ball was wrong after all - neither recommended nor essential.

From some of the play throughs of the first three levels, I am quite surprised that there is no mention of the piss poor use of the grenades which cannot be cocked nor the inability to pick up weapons laying about and only being able to pick up guns at preset locations, which is something you have been able to do in FPS`s for quite some years now.
