Then there will be a mega merger of Alphabet-Comcast and Disney-Bertelsmann into a single company:

Later to be renamed the snappier... Alphabet

But will you be good or evil?

My main gripe with Fable games was always their idea of morality. "You see a puppy, do you tickle and love it or kick it? YOU MUST CHOOOOOOOSE" Nope, I just go 'oh a puppy' and walk on.

Not just an issue with Fable, but it always wields it in advertising like it's done well, when it's not.

Fingers crossed on this one. I'd like to see Star Wars Galaxies return (even if Disney won't stand for it)

Ah but which version? What it started as, or how it ended?

what the hell, 3.4 million people are playing this game? I wonder what the breakdown is between platforms, doesn't seem like any PC people I know are playing this, most haven't even heard of it.

Admittedly that's an extremely small sample, and anecdotal evidence, but still.

Also, a breakdown of free version Battle Royale, vs the paid PvE(??) version would have been informative. Is there a worthwhile single player game in there somewhere, or is just basically the BR version now?

I'd have liked to know platform and play type split too.

I'm enjoying the PvE portion still after a month. Bought the cheapest founders pack when it was half price at xmas. Getting on just fine without any need to dip a toe into the microtransactional side of it. I'm normally playing on PC, but last night tried it on PS4 for the first time in a few weeks and the players I was teamed with were noticeably worse at it. That was only two games though, so not the best sample set.

Once again, I want to say "What the hell UK?" and I live here. I honestly don't ever see how this chart relates to *anything* any more. It seems as relevant as tracking physical CD sales to gauge what's popular music.

Thanks. And yeah I know you didn't, I think I accidentally hit quote instead of reply

So basically there was a lot more aggressive plays rather than just creeping forwards to barely make the ten yards? Makes sense. Rugby matches are a lot more fun when it's a flowing running game than lots of grounding it and slow pushes (IMO).

Very entertaining, both teams played well and it was nice to see a crazy offensive game for a change. I also consumed a ridiculous amount of chicken wings and pizza so it was win-win for everyone as far as I'm concerned

Could someone explain to an outsider how a game where (afaik) you HAVE to field a defensive line vs an offensive line can be deemed to have low defensive quotient? Genuinely curious. Haven't watched a Superbowl in a loooong time /brit

From videos Ive seen that people with controller hit far better with it than people who play with mouse/keyboard.

Playing the PvE on both PS4 and PC and I agree this is indeed how it feels. It does my head in that the same gun feels way less accurate on PC than PS4. Still having a blast though.

Until, of course, someone hacks it and deliberately sets fire to your kitchen...

If someone can hack a finance system via a goldfish tank, then why would you ever attach something actually dangerous to the IoT?

Actually, I'll fix that for myself: Why would you ever attach something to the IoT? Cool? Kinda. Risky as fuck in these early days? Definitely.

Can you somehow put spoiler alerts/filters on the news? They're kinda being total dicks releasing content before the film is on general release.

Sad fucking thing is, I used to love seeing the square/circle/triangle coming up on the Amiga. It meant you were about to play a quality game.

I was just saying this the other day. That and the guy growling "EA BIG" before SSX etc.

Very much so, which I guess is no surprise given his style of dystopian/warning type sci-fi.

Amazon continues to churn out original series, with Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams premiering on Friday, January 12.

Except that series has been out here on Channel 4 for weeks. Hardly a made for Amazon exclusive.

Great casts with some hit and some miss episodes.

When did it actually become free? Tried to try it a month ago and it insisted I buy an Early Access pack of a variety of prices.

Yeahhhh... no

Looks on the surface kind of like the reboot games but then comes across as total cheaply made cheese. And while I love Nick Frost in comedies, that immediately said all I needed to know about the tone.
