Burned through Max Payne 3 a few months back, my sis bought it major markdown from GameStop for me as a cheap birthday present. It ain't half-bad, actually kinda liked the tone of it and felt it was a good sequel, that said quite away from what the original two games were of course.

Otherwise, a lot of stuff on my wishlist I plan to get on this Steam sale myself since it's almost all now dirt cheap - This includes System Shock 2 which I haven't played any of in ages. Also a load of RTSs, including Civ5 which I was gonna get elsewhere but since it's now 75 points off on Steam, well there ya go.

Civ6 on the hand is absolute no-go just because of the admitted spyware and whoring of personal info right in their EULA. That and I gather it's not a real big improvement from 5 anyway.

As for movies, I'm as tired of rehashed remaked reboot-in-ass stuff as anyone, but I gotta say new Halloween's looking pretty awesome.

It's not a remake or reboot, rather a direct sequel to the original Halloween and Halloween II that disregards everything H3 and beyond.

The problem comes when you try playing it again and realise just how often the gameplay is interrupted with enormous loading pauses with cutscenes pasted over them. You'd be amazed the percentage of cutscenes you can't skip because the game hasn't loaded yet.

Tannenberg wouldn't even get past the damn title screen, yet Verdun runs 100%?

Actually, it's a follow up to the very original Halloween. It ignores the events of Halloween II. But on the plus side, that means it gets rid of the stupid "Michael and Laurie siblings" twist from Halloween II (which, in my opinion, has been the albatross hanging across the franchises' neck).

Danny McBride stated in an interview that it follows on from Halloween II.

Looks like the RoboCop reboot is getting a sequel.

And here I thought it's a sequel to the original...

The script originally was, but it's apparently being rewritten as a sequel to the remake. At least, that's how I understood it.
