Comment: Overwatch Halloween Update

I haven't played Overwatch for a couple of weeks (a crime I know) but only because I didn't have enough space for the update. I do now and what an update the Halloween update is. A new PVE weekly brawl, new skins, new voice lines and the list goes on, all for free.

First Impressions: Hitman

Another day, another series I've only just joined. Yes, Hitman, my first proper voyage into the series (which may explain my slightly differing opinions to series veterans) besides a quick go at Hitman: Absolution round a friends house, and it's been pretty good, to be honest. I've only played the prologue level so far but have really enjoyed the freedom to approach levels any way you want as well as the huge amount of features which make stealth games better than 'games with stealth in them' for example, moving bodies.

Comment: The Last of Us: Remastered Grounded Mode

I lasted just over a year until I was back into TLOU's story mode, such is the greatness of the game. However, this time I was on Grounded Mode, and I thought I'd do a comment talking about it as it is mildly different to normal difficulty.

First Impressions: Clustertruck

No, that's not a misspelling, it's really about trucks. Lots of them, moving at high speed and sometimes floating. You are a person who enjoys running about on top of said trucks. Some say you have a death wish, some say your nuts but you know... You are all of these things. At least you have fun doing it though.

Film Review No. 14 The Nice Guys (15+)

Strong Points:
Twists and turns
Great acting from the two mains
Great 70's style
Some great uses of lighting, sudden changes and pauses
Actual depth to the characters
Slowly unfolds the story allowing you to work things out...

Weak Points:
... But can be confusing at the beginning
Message is lost in chaos
Supporting actors aren't quite as detailed as the main three
Can get slightly gratuitous

Some spoilers ahead:

Video Game Character of the Month - October 2016 - Princess Ida - Monument Valley

Video Game Character of the Month
October 2016
Princess Ida
Monument Valley

No, no questions. You see she's not exactly talkative you see. You have to really interpret her actions, to be honest. Yes, her being on the ceiling is completely normal, she does that. Right, no more questions, she has to get to her award ceremony. She's won Video Game Character of the Month actually.
And now for a bit of information on Ida (some spoilers ahead):
