@corwag: Red Letter Media do ok and they're in Minnesota, and they are the closest thing I have seen to a Giant Bomb of films outside of Screened. Depends what type of coverage you do, really.

As others have said, the film industry does seem a lot harder to work with than the game industry though - you notice that the mainstream outlets only ever get one arbitrary 30 second clip to use, while RLM has to do various things to avoid copyright strikes when they show clips using bits of the trailers of modern films. And it must be a nightmare for anyone other than the traditional major media outlets to get an interview with someone for any kind of studio release. As a result, RLM's best videos tend to be of older films.

The majority of movie youtubers tend to be pretty godawful shills, sadly.

I wouldn't bother. I was a 360 person last gen but I really regret getting my Xbone, which I did mainly because my friends already had it. Only one or two interesting exclusives and worse versions of every multiplatform. I've got a ps4 now and having a much better time. Backwards compatibility is awesome on xbone though.

The price difference isn't big enough to justify buying the worse system.

The combat feels really awful and the enemies in the demo are annoying more than frightening.

Plenty of atmosphere though. Hmm.

I am surprised at some of the super-negative comments here!

2017 is becoming the best year for games in history.

The repeated comparison in thjs thread of how games are scored to the US school grade system is actually interesting, something I had never thought of before. It explains so much.

See here in Scotland (and afaik in the UK in general) 70% at school is a good grade, an A- basically. At university it's even better - 70% area is enough for a first class degree, if you get over 80% for an undergraduate essay in many degrees it basically means it was a good enough work to be published professionally. I got one such grade and I was so fucking proud. 40% is a fail. Therefore a game getting 8/10 to me means 'really good'.

The hatred for sub-8 scores in games all makes sense now if US education has such different grade systems.

X axis inverters make Y axis inverters seem socially acceptable.

Chromecast plugged into the xbox, casting from the giant bomb video buddy app. Works perfectly.

Price is far too high here in the UK, it's going to be a problem for them. It's about £60-80 too much in my opinion.

That's partly down to the pound losing value thanks to racists and old people of course.

With the rubbish line-up if games, I am worried they have fucked it up. I just want a 3DS successor, which perhaps is a forlorn hope.

Platinum has been putting out some shovelware lately, hope they can sort themselves out.
