Re: “Was that Martin Freeman as the voice of the unseen director? It sounded like him, but I couldn’t be sure.” - No, it was Brooker himself.
I thought this awful, sadly, I used to love Brooker’s annual wipes, and this year’s Antiviral Wipe back in May was great, but here the satire was muted and mild and almost… Read more
You and I have similar taste in comics, friend
I’ve been slowly making my way through the Kingdom Hearts series as well, and I just started KH3. So far it seems like the best combination of mechanics from Dream Drop Distance and KH2, with a fresh coat of graphical paint, but I can see getting tired of it if I play too much in one go.

(Can a full remake of that classic be far off?) Read more
Like several others, I need to chime in and say playing Silent Hill 2 is a wonderful decision. It’s in my top 3 games of all time with Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6. I certainly don’t want to manage your expectations for what to expect by making subtle references to what you have to look forward to, so I’ll just… Read more
