God of War: Ragnarok

Played the first of the latest God of War for a bit. It was absolutely gorgeous! Buuuut in contrast to all the positive vibes it has received I never really completely fell in love with the game. So it kind of ended up stranded half way through and never completing it (In relative terms half way is actually really good by my standard) ;) Combat and pacing didn't really click 100% for me. Hard to put my finger on exactly what didn't click. :/
Perhaps there was just too much time spent on traversal looking for something to activate, finding some chest I couldn't open because I didn't have the right thingie yet, cut scene stuff while not going hulk smash on everything as you would expect in a >GOD< of >WAR< kind of game.. hmmm. :rolleyes So I never get into that sweet constant combat flow state. But rather a constant stream of mode switching and small disappointing.. 'oh this if the later?!'
In general I don't click with a lot of AAA stuff for a lot of similar reasons.

But I can sure appreciate the visuals of Ragnarok. Fine fine work as usual!

God of War: Ragnarok


**update Oh part of a larger Playstation showcase.

Firmaet bag verdenskendt lejemorder vendte truende konkurs til succes
De har skabt en af Danmarkshistoriens største spilsucceser med Hitman, men for fire år siden var IO Interactive ved at dreje nøglen om. Hakan Abrak købte de japanske ejere ud, vendte skuden og arbejder nu på en ny franchise, der skal sikre fremtiden for spilfirmaet.

Got around to play the Cultic demo published by 3D Realms, (not developed). It's actually pretty cool! Finished the demo.. so that speaks. The game was revealed at the recent Realms Deep event.
I certainly have a good feeling about this one! I'm sure it will find the boomer shooter loving audience.

Fundamentally there is nothing new under the sun here. That's not important It's just a well crafted boomer shooter if you are into that sort of thing. So that's cool!

Free demo on Steam of the first level!

So just got back from watching DUNE in Imperial in Copenhagen on their new THX Ultimate Cinema audio and video system. Supposedly the only system available in Europe at this current time. It was most certainly a big part of giving the movie experience that extra punch, immersion and vibrancy. I'm sure the IMAX experience is pretty close. It was indeed loud!.. cool with me.

Got back with feeling that I just wanted to see part 2.. like RIGHT NAAAW!!
The worst part of the movie was that it ended. ;)
Crossing fingers part 2 will actually happen.
** Update! Sounds like Dune: Part 2 is very likely! :D
https://www.gamesradar.com/dune-2-will- ... euve-says/
And a tv-series (DUNE: Sisterhood is also in the works) for HBO Max exclusively.

Denis Villeneuve has another bad ass seal of approval in my book for sure.

I will not go into details but everything was pretty top notch (I have only some small nitpicks) and coherently well told. You were never really in doubt of what and why things were happening. Though of cause I walked into the movie with foreknowledge of the 1984 movie (but quite faint in memory) and the universe in general through games and the like. Though having never read the books.


Ok last time I'll post the trailer.. if it ever so slightly peeks your interest I do certainly recommend the full blown high powered cinema experience as opposed to HBO streaming it or otherwise. If you in any shape enjoy dark and hyper brutalist sci-fi things.

SpiderHeck in open beta.. Spiders with laser swords! Played it a bit with kiddo 1 yesterday. It's pretty good! PVE was not that fun really. But we had some good rounds of local PVP.
