You can get Blood bowl chaos edition for £2.99 which if you have any interest in blood bowl at all and don't have the newer blood bowl 2 already is a bargain. I am part of a league that plays on the old version so I am pedaling it to everyone I know.

In Which We Serve is on iPlayer at the moment. It's an absolute classic.

Kajaki is also on iPlayer, which isn't in black and white, but is the only good English-language film about a contemporary conflict.

I'm going to stick my neck out and say Half Life never aged all that well.

It was remarkably influential game that led us into more "cinematic" storytelling, but I am often forced to wonder if that was even a good thing. Look where that influence led us over the next decade. From a gameplay perspective, it was also one of the games that pushed us towards "realism" where there is an overabundance of hitscan enemies and no real way of mitigating damage. This is what pushed us towards the Halo style model of regenerating shield/health, and ultimately, to boring cover shooters.

The older I get the more I can't escape the idea that Doom was not only one of the first but arguably always one of the best first person shooters. Its gameplay is so incredibly well balanced in all sorts of ways, that were certainly happy accidents rather than intentional, but I think all shooters should learn their lessons from it.

Where Half Life was great was in level design, atmosphere and environmental storytelling, but I think Half Life 2 surpasses it. Black Mesa infuriates me because they have messed with the formula to make it even more unforgiving- You have lower ammo caps and seem to take far more damage than the original; which only exacerbates what I think are already weaknesses in the first game.

Yes imagine the idea that the films on the top of the poll that didn't just come out and get the hollywood hype train behind them might actually be good.

>Citizen Kane is a boring load of old wank, I don't care if it had groundbreaking camerawork

It is the film I mentioned that tends to get the most heat firstly because people feel it is over praised, and also the subject matter and tone, the others I mentioned (even Seven Samurai) have comic relief moments Citizen Kane is dry as bone. I love it as a character piece though. I think you are supposed to come away sincerely saying 'the tragedy of the man' and I do.

Don't-buy-games-for-years-lad here. Saw Dishonored was £1.50 on Steam so I thought what the hell I'll pick it up. Buying the 'Definitive Edition' including all the DLC cost me £3. But then discovered something amusing.

There are the sequel games, Dishonored 2 and Death of the Outsider. Buying the 'Complete Collection' which includes the DLC and the sequels is currently on offer for £16.49. But there is also a 'Death of the Outsider Deluxe Bundle' which includes both sequels on sale for £8.

So if you bought the Definitive Edition and the Deluxe Bundle you'd pay £11, and get all the games in the Complete Collection for about £5.50 less.

Nice pricing there lads!

I was going to argue that you shouldn't judge Half Life on the games that it arguably led to, but I do sort of agree with you. I was only eight when Half Life 1 came out, so HL2 was the game I really remember and was blown away by. In terms of level design, it's stellar, I've only played through the game twice, yet could draw you out entire locations in there if I had to, it's just that memorable.

I definitely agree with you about Doom. I noticed a lot of people (rightly) gushing about how refreshing and perfectly balanced the new reboot was, and I can't help but think that style is exactly what an FPS is supposed to be. I do love Halo, but I'm not sure I love Halo for the gameplay. You can't even sprint in CE.

Humble Bundle are selling Crusader Kings II and all its DLC. I keep seeing this game everywhere so I thought I'd pick it up for the $1. I go back to Steam and in the reviews everyone is raving about what an amazing deal getting all the DLC is for $15. So caving into peer pressure I went back and purchased it again. You lads can have the spare Steam keys.

Is this morally right? I dunno I'm only depriving the sick kids of $1 aren't I?

Assetto Corsa is only £13 on Steam, with all the DLC, right now. It's easily the most entertaining driving sim I've played and there are seemingly endless amounts of DLC for it, I can't recommend it enough.

Interesting - I like a driving SIM and have seen the reviews of I and considered it in the past. I have a Logitech wheel/pedals and one of those driving seats to go with.

Why is it so good? I like Project Cars very much indeed, but with the wheel it's almost too easy once you've practiced enough.

A couple of years ago I bought a wheel and pedals and thought I'd get into multiplayer racing in Assetto Corsa. Played it for maybe 15 hours total but eventually got bored of it and realised I'm not really into racing sims. I played the shit out of the old GT and Forza games but I was never one to autistically shave milliseconds off my laptimes or engage in the tedium of going around the same track over and over to learn the best racing lines, which is a necessity if you want to be competitive online.

I ended up selling the wheel and pedals, bought an old MS Sidewinder joystick because force feedback in joysticks went the way of the dodo for some reason, and had a blast blasting people in Il-2. Going pew-pew in the air or in space is a more fun thing to simulate than driving around a race track.

The variety of tracks and the range of cars to drive is what I like most about it. It's definitely more of a sim than Project Cars, although the graphics aren't quite up to the same level. As I, eventually, mentioned it has a modding scene that's second to none. If you have a "local" racetrack that you've always thought "damn, I wish that was in a game for once", someone's probably at least working on adding it. Not that the base game's barren or anything, especially with all the DLC, there's just loads going on beyond that.

>but I was never one to autistically shave milliseconds off my laptimes or engage in the tedium of going around the same track over and over to learn the best racing lines
Oh. Okay.

Il-2's ace too though. I've never managed to get a Sturmovik into space, but maybe I never tried hard enough.

Seconding all of these.

Also if you were into platform games on the PC back in the early 90s then you might have encountered Jill of the Jungle and Bio Menace. Neither were stand-out titles in the shareware era in particular but the former is notable for being programmed by Tim Sweeney, who went on to found Epic, program the Unreal Engine and steer its course from Quake competitor to industry-wide middleware dominance, and then do Fortnite for 250 million kids or whatever it is now. He makes me feel like a right lazy cunt. Bio Menace is just pure Apogee nostalgia. Strangely gory, actually. I quite liked it back in the day.
