No Mans Sky was launched in 2016 to massive fanfare and pre launch acclaim. The game was revolutionary in that it pronounced that it had billions of worlds to explore all procedurally generated. However on launch it did not live up to the hype and was immediately criticised by gamers and the public. 4 years later and with multiple free updates it has redeemed itself and is on opf the most popular open world games on the market. What is your experience of No Mans Sky
Having leased a Lexus a few years ago it now came time for my first Lexus service as part of the lease. Obviously during lockdown this was going to be a bit different. But I must say Lexus were great. They came and picked the car up at the agreed time. They sent me various emails and called numerous times with updates. The highlight being an email video of my actual service check and what problems they had found. Had anyone else experienced a similar level of service from a dealer?
Silent hill 2 is one of the scariest games I have ever played. Even though it doesn’t have any jump scares and came out in 2001 on the PlayStation 2, it manages to hold up by its unrelenting atmosphere and the constant scare of the unknown. The story of Silent hill 2 is that you are James Sunderland who just received a letter from your wife who died three years ago, saying that she is in the town Silent hill waiting for you. Silent hill 2 is the perfect sequel by taking what worked from the first and by putting it in its own self-contained story, with the only connection between the two games being the town. The game also has a great narrative with all the enemies having deeps amounts of symbolism. For example the main enemy who keeps reappearing is a reflection of the main character, James Sunderland.
Wolfpack is a documentary directed by Crystal Moselle and tells the story of six brothers and one sister locked away from the outside world in a Manhattan apartment by their parents, never going outside and being home schooled by their mother, so they keep themselves entertained by re-enacting their favourite movies.
Wolfpack shares the story of six brothers and one sister being trapped in their own apartment not being to go out. The documentary does showing how they coped not being let out of their apartment, it also tells you why the partners did it. Throughout the film it shows home videos of when the children were young, showing clips of them re-enacting their favourite films. Unfortunately I felt that the film could have been longer, for it only being 1hr 20mintues, and shown more of them making re-enacting and making more scenes of different movies. But that is the only real complaint of the film. The film does a great of the children went through and also the parents.
Overall I think the film is a really good documentary and does a great job of telling a horrible story but also emotional highs as well but was a bit too short so therefore I will be giving it an 7/10.
The Wolfpack is in cinemas now, certificated 15
