I watched The One, the Jet Li movie. What a great concept! Killing your alternate selves to gain their power until you become a god. Like a (properly) sci-fi Highlander (no aliens pls). Cheesy and corny as of course thanks to Jason Statham's cod-american growly accent - why oh why not just let him use his actual voice - and the extensive use of metal as the sound track. But baffled I didn't watch this earlier, all problems aside.

Games / Re: A Couple of Ideas for Rebellion

I'm quite sure games like Sleeping Dogs or Saints Row even had a way more limited budget than that.   

Sleeping Dogs probably had a comparitively high development budget. It was meant to be True Crime 3 but Activision canned it since they didn't like how much it was costing, until Square Enix picked it up.

There is a world of space between GTAV and other open world games such as say, Witcher 3, but even a budget of £80m is alot. Don't shoot for the stars, aim for the moon and you might get there.

I like the idea of a Telltale style game. Would work really well for Dredd I think.

The new DOOM.

Ok not so newish but be fair I had to finish Witcher 3 before I could play it finally. And though this isn't a patch on Geralt and his incredibly detailed and vibrant world, DOOM scratches an itch I didn't know I had. The itch of a trigger finger on a super shotgun, as hordes of demons erupt around you, as you run through showers of viscera and hellfire to rip things apart with your hands and leap between explosions to snatch one more moment of bloodshed from the teeth of your enemies, until finally it's silent....

In other words I forgot how fun and cathartic it is to shoot monsters.

Is the reporter at the start of the Dredd strip supposed to be Alan Yentob perhaps? Or some other sycophantic grifter I haven't recognised....  Mar-O-Larger will be reality in a few years, tenner bet :)

a small contingent have set to crowing about how they've taken back control of their tiny portion of the world, just as it goes to absolute shit.

Amazing how well this fits elsewhere

The free market works if all parties are rational actors who act with long-term interest.


This is evidently even more ludicrous than the most passionate revolutionary communist.

Revealed that I grew up in the 90s. The Flash is obviously Barry Allen, not Wally West :P

Flash is good, has loads of nods to DC easter eggs. You need a break though as every problem can be solved by RUN FASTER WALLY (and Wally is an idiot, likeable but an idiot. Stop messing with time Wally!)

La Tortue Rouge - French/Japanese animated film in which a shipwrecked man encounters a giant red turtle which he kills and fucks, in that order.  Bloody French.
Worth a look if you fancy letting the kids watch something different.

Factually accurate, tonally dissonant :P

Books & Comics / Re: Whats everyone reading?

Plowed through The Outsider by Stephen King in a couple of sittings. Nothing groundbreaking but thoroughly readable, a slightly too-quick jump to a full understanding of the supernatural is the only real flaw I had. Sad now it's over.

Rather enjoying horror comic Infidel, which has a growing creepy occult vibe tied in to the bubbling anger beneath identity politics. Can't way for #4 now it's all kicked off.

Also read Rat Queens. Gave up after relaunch, was convinced to try again, lost me again somewhere between #8 and #9. Just no idea what the hell is happening.

Power Rangers. God the 90s version was so much...better? And I don't mean just because I was 8.

Everyone should watch Over the Garden Wall on Netflix. I bought the DVD of this years ago but it's America-region only, so have not been able to share my love for this weird animation of woodsy horror and whimsy. It's really good stuff and has some great voice work too.
