  1. Now that you mention it, hell yes ! Best music ever written in appreciation of Mrs. Connelly.
  2. Not because YOU think like that, that WE do !
  3. Everywhere, not many composers can write something as devastatingly emotional and powerful as that. One of my favorite cues by the man. Despite all the despicable things the director did in real life, the movie's a bit of a gem, one that I like to revisit. The last scene has me in tears every time.
  4. I see one action-adventure and one FPS among all those titles I won't even touch with a ten foot stick!
  5. Good for you, but there's more out there than RPG's. I've just added it up now using the companion app and I've spent 845 hours on Destiny since it came out about 18 months ago. King Mark is a lightweight!
  6. One thing's for sure, this board has a LOT less useless posts since a few weeks...
  7. I've not even played the first 2, so the third one is miles away from even being considered. There are only so many humongous RPG's one can (wants to) go through in one lifetime.
  8. It's not that. I can definitely remain entertained for 50-100 hours on a game (Skyrim, Fallout 3, New Vegas, Final Fantasy for example, Mass Effect trilogy). But like I said, so much interests me these days that I have to play, and re-play (yes I can get a kick out of booting up an old game, simply to re-enter its world, reliving its thrills and seeing it a new light (graphics are not that important to me anyway, however I'll have a look for high-resolution texture packs and whatnot just to spice it up if possible). I'm just happy that not every game made is for the hardcore OCD gamers (which I can be on a rare occasion), and when one comes along I can complete in ten hours but gives me a great and focused, even emotional experience I will value that over a much too long, repetitive one, that at the end becomes more work than fun. I just checked: I have 239 hours on Skyrim. It's one of the best games I've ever played... but my question is do I really want to go through it again? I'll do that without question for a great 10 hour game, that gives me all the awesomeness in 10 hours that Skyrim has in 239 hours.
  9. As much as I love the complete score, that sounds like overkill.
  10. How do you get this mod? Is it available or just a developer demo? I'm not sure if it's already out or a work in progress, but it's for the PC release of the game and should need quite a well equiped rig from the looks of things. Mods like these are always put together by the community and free.
  11. Does it connect with the films' universe in any way or is it a standalone experience? And another 50 hour game? It's okay if you don't want to play a lot that comes out, but someone like that is interested in so many genres and franchises, and keeps replaying the old favorites, I prefer it when a game gives me a good 10-15 hours worth.
  12. I watched the movie again recently. Its balls to the walls action sequences are the stuff of legend, and for that it remains big fun. But man, does the score annoy me... Why did it have to be another onslaught of noise for 90 % of the film? I honestly was hoping that George Miller had more sense than that. And the 10% where it calms down isn't exactly my cup of tea either. I don't even remember those gentler moments. At least Mad Max 3 had a nice theme, and some genuinely well scores scenes. I'm not a big fan of Maurice Jarre in general, but he gave the film some musical character. The new one is just loud for the sake of sounding ridiculously overblown and causing headaches.
  13. You said it Quintus. There's nothing hateful about ID4. Simply too much fun to be had with it, provided one doesn't take it too seriously. If I look at blockbusters now compared to the ones made during my youth... Well, I know which ones I prefer.
  14. I've listened to several Horners since his accident... and to me he remains alive through his wonderful music. It was like that with Jerry too and it will be like that with Johnny. But I'll be absolutely devastated the day the inevitable happens (and the days after), I won't deny that.
  15. Oh yeah, very much looking forward to these. I still love everything about the first film and its wonderfully designed universe. The Cameron fanboy in me has spoken.
  16. Real Life Mod - 4K 60FPSBloody amazing looking. A crying shame that there's no campaign for this.
  17. Yeah, what's up with that, some strange decisions here ! And don't get me started on Jar Jar's theme appearing in track 5... This does not bode well.
  18. Oh right, I think it needs to be activated first in the settings (Power saving). It didn't work me either at first.
  19. I'll be darned ! Going to try that later. And for the record, PS4 doesn't take too long either to come out of hibernation. About 5 seconds, with one log-in screen.
  20. I was under the impression those were PS4 screenshots earlier. Wait, what does Xbone do better? Unless I've missed it, it has no Standby feature.
  21. Just two cues of another stellar soundtrack. Like Civilization V and Civilization Beyond Earth, everything I've heard these guys (Knorr, Curran, Kirkhope) put out is amazing. Majestic is the right word ! Just ignore the ambient cues.
  22. Young was asked to score the now in production second film, but would only agree to do it the production company releases the scores to both films. So we'll be getting the sequel score a bit sooner then. I think I read that on FSM.
  23. I've had two system crashes if memory serves right. But those were back when I bought mine. Haven't had a crash this year. I also hope the standby feature of the PS4 is much better than the one that exists for PC, because I use that feature a lot nowadays (MGS V). On PC I had a serious crash that FUBAR'd my boot record, forcing me to do a complete OS re-installation.
  24. Well the game looks very cinematic. I don't know what it is, but there's some sort of graphic filter used that makes it look very aesthetically pleasing. It makes the art in the game stand out. And I haven't even seen it in motion.
