Not at all. The beauty of Dredd is that he is the only constant in the story. The city can change. Justice Dept can change. He is the same. He is a motionless pivot around which another 40 years of plot could be spun.

Ohhh I really want to get Talisman for the Switch as I loved the boardgame as a kid. If anyone plays this would love to know if its a good adaption.

It's better than good. It adapts all the fourth (most recent) expansions which - and I know from experience - take up more space than any table can handle, then has even more digital only expansions.

The DLC is regularly on sale at 80% off.

Oh that is good to hear. In Switch land I've got it on my watch list and I've only seen at 20% off (ish can't quite remember) but next time I see it I'll take the plunge anyway as I've been looking forward to playing it again and its great to see an endorsement - which it also seems to get online too.

I have it on PC, so you're talking Steam sale discounts.

One annoying thing is the way it randomises all dice rolls at the start of the game (it creates a table of a million or so numbers at the outset and then reads that). But it is fun. We play digital more than physical.

I just started Dying Light today, for the first time. I find its area of attack hard to measure compared to other melee games, especially Skyrim, but I am enjoying it.

Regarding co-op, Dead Space 3 was my best experience. There is one section where a character goes mad. One player sees a series of demons attacking - which you have to shoot. The other player sees their co-op partner wasting a SHIT TON OF AMMO before a boss fight.

I was the mad one, and the experience of hearing my brother asking what the feck I was doing, then me saying "what are you on about? Shoot them! Shoot them!" was a true highlight of 40+ years of gaming.

Deffo a fake. As the comments say, the animated faces are a dead give away.

Plus, I remember seeing some of the photos from when I read the damn thing!

I watched GODZILLA v KONG too.

A film in which I knew what was going to happen having seen no trailer.

A film filled not so much with plot holes as plot voids. (Wait, there's hole tunnel that leads to a lost world at the centre of the Earth?)

A film that makes the city of Hong Kong look curiously like a mid-eighties night club. (Seriously. Every building has neon lighting along the edges).

A film which is fun and exactly fulfils expectation.

This is a remake of yer 70s Japanese epics. Go into it expecting that, for that is what you get.

On BMI, I vividly remember a critical article that started with a full page photo of Lennox Lewis (who was champ at the time).

The guy was ripped . All muscle. I mean, he was the epitome of physical perfection.

The caption was (paraphrasing) "This man is morbidly obese."

I hate Dredd-in-space, and I'm not keen on picaresque stories. So you can guess how I feel about Judge Child! Love the Angel Gang (of course) but Krysler and his abilities are really ill-defined, as is the Grunwalder and his robot-planet(?), as are the magic abilities of the Oracle Spice. And there isn't really an ending to speak of, after all that faffing about.

Terror/Total War for me, a first class Mega-City thriller that led to six whole months of superb aftermath stories.

You want superb aftermath stories? I give you Fink, Destiny's Angels and City of the Damned. Plus every Mean Machine story ever.
