Despite boasting a comedy duo that worked so well on The Other Guys, Daddy’s Home is a little short on laughs, and feels like a missed opportunity as a result.
Mark Herman tackles the daunting subject of the holocaust from a completely different perspective; that of a young German boy. The handling of such a sensitive subject here is excellent, and it offers a fascinating insight into one of the most horrifying periods in human history.
I didn’t write a post on here last week due to the internet not being ready in my new home, so apologies for that.
Now that the internet situation has been resolved, the next hurdle to overcome is the local weather. It’s been snowing pretty heavily here and, while it all looks pretty and festive, it does create a fresh set of transport issues.
With the weather being the way it is, I’ve had to spend more time at my parents’ house because of its closer proximity to work. This means that I haven’t been home much and haven’t had time to watch or play anything for me to write about.
That’s a lot of waffling just to say that I haven’t got a post ready for this week!
Sorry again, folks.
Evening all. I hope you’re all well.
I’m currently in the middle of moving house so I haven’t really had time to watch or play anything recently, which means that I haven’t got a post scheduled for this week. I’m sorry!
However, I haven’t missed a Friday post since February and I’m not going to let something trivial like moving home interfere with that! So in order to keep my weekly posts going, I thought I’d quickly drop by with this update.
So I’m sorry for the lack of content this week. I should be back on track next week with a nice wall of text for you to skim over. Fingers crossed!
Thanks for your time and I’ll see you next week.
That statement might sound strange considering that I wrote a glowing review for it earlier this year, but up until this week I hadn’t played it since February. On a whim, I decided to fire it up again just to see how ten months worth of updates had affected it, and I’m really glad I did. It’s better now than it has ever been.
Earlier this week EA announced the impending closure of Visceral Games, the studio behind the Dead Space trilogy and Battlefield Hardline. They were working on a Star Wars adventure game and it appears that EA’s decision to close the studio stems from their differing opinions on what that game should be.
Here’s EA’s official explanation:
This post marks my 100th post on Flick & Mix!
It took me a while to reach this milestone, probably because of my fifteen month hiatus where I did bugger all. I like to refer to that time as “My Little Wobble”, and you can read more about it here.
One year ago today I returned to this site, determined to bore some more people with my inane dribble. A year on and I’m celebrating my 100th post. That was a tad fortuitous, eh?
Anyways, thanks to all who have stumbled across these pages, and a special thank you to those who keep coming back. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been here once or a thousand times, the fact that you came here and took the time to read something really means a lot to me.
So thanks again, and here’s to another hundred posts…
