    The Magicians - SyFy [SHOW SPOILERS ONLY]

    I rather find it reassuring if their most successful series is also one of the best shows on TV.

    Outlander II: Sing me a Song...

    Seeing as he seems to be a fan favourite character in the show, I would say... yes? But I haven't read the books, so I have no idea. Do they take place during his time in Britain or in America?
  3. If you burn through the main story missions maybe... but as an avid tomb raider and explorer, I played way way more than that and I'm only at 75% of the game. The game is really not just for enjoying the story and characters (Uncharted would be that game), its main appeal for me is the tombs/crypts/artefacts finding/etc, which is all optional. So I wouldn't call it a 15 hours game.
  4. I disagree on combat. The fighting gameplay of The Witcher is terribly boring. Skyrim is much more fun in that regard. For the rest, The Witcher is leagues ahead of course.
  5. Yes, I meant theoretically. Of course, someone who mastered building has probably already an above average aim.
  6. Fortnite is special, and not just due to its success, but because it has a unique building gameplay. You can be a shooter god, and still get utterly destroyed by a guy who has potato aim but is a build fight god. And yes, we really need a separate ranked mode. It would help both new players and pros who get bored in pubs.
  7. I feel bad for anyone starting the game now. The average level is so off the chart, it's just absurd. Which brings so many annoying changes from Epic to try to reduce the skill gap, but that's another topic.

    I wanted to reply but Toth already summed up everything incredibly well. Fate/Zero may be strange to watch at first without the background knowledge on the "Fate" concept. But nothing a quick google up can't remedy (although there is the risk of spoiling Fate/Zero itself with the googling), or simply a heads up from someone who knows what it is about. It is not "compulsory" to watch in any case, it's just that it's the only good thing to come out of the Fate mess. It's a great show on its own, if you like ensemble pieces of characters fighting each other, that is, and all the (interesting I believe) drama that comes with it. And the characters are all great in their own way, contrary to the rest of Fate.

    It baffles me when I see someone actively trying to watch or play anything from the Fate franchise other than Fate/Zero.
  10. I'll forgive you for not mentioning MGS, since it was released in Europe only in 1999.
  11. Season 3 was a big disappointment for me. Some great moments (tears came when Uthred talked of his relationship with Alfred), but overall, the plot didn't make sense. I understand the need of condensing the plotlines of multiple books, but I thought it was better handled the first two seasons. For instance, in season 2, they gave the Norse brothers (book 4) the role of Ivar and Ivarr (book 3) which was smart and allowed to have them present the whole season. Otherwise, the show still followed the events of the books pretty faithfully. In this season, they had the so called new Great Army waiting the whole season for Alfred's death, which is just absurd, both from a storytelling point of view and in-story logistics (the army would just starve and disband before that). But mainly, I disliked: Heasten and Aethelwold's back and forth with Wessex, it required way more suspension of disbelief that I could afford. the original ending they gave to characters that just vanish in the books. Ragnar in the books was original as a Viking as he just wanted to live in peace for the rest of his days in his castle. And he did. It broke my heart to see the death they gave him in the show. Same for Thyra. Why couldn't she just live happily ever after with her Beocca and their many children, as in the books? Why? Was it necessary to have the whole Ragnar family die horribly? And poor Beocca to live trough this... The whole Skade fiasco. Keeping her for much of the season was their biggest mistake. And some other less significant nitpickings, like the mid season battle that was atrociously directed and horribly written (really, Alfred, you want to have all Uthred's men killed just to make a stupid point?).

    JK Rowling announces Five 'Fantastic Beasts' films

    It looks like a retcon, it smells like a retcon and it sounds like a retcon. So I think you're right.

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    Yes, but IRL, he didn't achieve anything against his Scottish enemies before Loudoun, only losses. Whereas in the film, the Comyn supporters are more or less destroyed. You can see several of them killed on screen. I don't know, I have a hard time imagining any possible sequel to the film.

    ‘Outlaw King’: Robert The Bruce Scottish Epic

    The film merged the battle of Bannockburn (against Edward II) with Loudoun (against Valence I think). There can't be a sequel with Bannockburn given that Loudoun served its purpose, and that all the events that should happen between Loudoun and Bannockburn such as fighting the Scots (McDougals, etc) already happened before Loudoun in the film.
