Google Stadia – a new gaming future – But what is it?

Google Stadia
Google Stadia is the console/unit/whatever that they’re releasing and it’s a streaming platform.

Google want you to be able to play the games you’re watching on Youtube, with all the ‘hardware’ in the cloud, rather than having a traditional console. Trouble is, you will have latency – which means your picture is lagging behind your button presses, and the image will suffer, so it will look AND play terrible.

Lucy In The Sky – Teaser 1 – Natalie Portman

Lucy In The Sky
Lucy In The Sky (with diamonds, hence the title of the film and how the trailer leads into the song by The Beatles) stars Natalie Portman in the titular role of Lucy Cola, a female astronaut who, upon returning to Earth from a life-changing mission in space, begins to slowly unravel and lose touch with reality… and you get a feel of that from this, even if it doesn’t delve much into the story… but then that’s why it’s just a teaser, and not a full trailer… even though it goes on for almost three minutes.

This film definitely has a ’70s vibe with her haircut and the style of the environment and everyone around her, so it also made me think of the era of Alien, and did make me wonder if it might be part of that canon, initially… but it’s not.

Toy Story 4 – Trailer 1 – Tom Hanks

Toy Story 4
Toy Story 4 now has a full-length trailer, and is still out on June 21st. And I wonder why this time, they’ve gone for a 2.35:1 ratio for the film, rather than the usual 1.85:1 for this series?

Check out the new trailer below:

Devil May Cry 5 on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Devil May Cry 5
Devil May Cry 5 is out now, and Capcom are on a roll as of late with the Resident Evil remasters (especially Resident Evil 2) and not forgetting the awesome Resident Evil 7. On top of those you have Monster Hunter World and Mega Man 11 to name but a few releases over the past few months. I have not been so enthralled with Capcom since the days of Black Tiger, Strider, Bionic Commandos and L.E.D. Storm in the arcades (and home conversions) back in the day!

The Bay Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Morven Christie

The Bay
The Bay in this new drama is Morecambe Bay, the setting for a new police drama where Holly and Dylan Meredith – two 15-year-old twins who – didn’t come home from a trip to a youth club, and have gone missing.

Assigned to the task is DS Lisa Armstrong (Morven Christie), and while I’m obviously not going to give any spoilers, I can comment on what’s already been broadcast in the trailer for this.

Atari VCS – forever delayed?

Atari VCS
Atari VCS – it’s been delayed until the end of 2019… or forever. Whichever is longer.

All this unit has to do is play Atari 2600 games and be a low-end PC, all of which could even be run on a smartphone processor, but all of sudden, it needs a high-performance chip? Pull the other one, guys.

Christchurch shootings could end Facebook Live

Christchurch shootings
The Christchurch shootings are one hell of a tragedy, and is has led to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern taking the unprecedented step of the State footing the bill for the funerals of all of the victims. All that said, I think it could possibly bring about the end of Facebook Live.

Mr Blobby sneaks a peek at a woman in a bath?

Mr Blobby hasn’t been on our screens for so long (thankfully) in fact, ever since Noel’s House Party finished on our screens in 1999 – and before that, we had to suffer him getting the eponymous Xmas No.1 single – but what has happened, and reported upon today, is most unfortunate.

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann
The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann is a new documentary series looking at the most high-profile case potential abduction which has ever happened relating to a child from the UK. We get anecdotes and comments about the case from other holidaygoers, journalists, those who have written about it, as well as local residents, including one-time big suspect, Robert Murat, who was later found to be innocent, but try getting the British tabloids to understand facts(!)

Burning Men – The DVDfever Review – British Indie movie

Burning Men
Burning Men begins with witnessing the fact that Ray Shearsmith… is dead. Maybe. He’s reciting the tale from beyond the grave, though, if he has left this world. He might not have, but you get that this is being told in flashback, and we’ll get back to this moment when we reach the end.

Ray (Edward Hayter) and Don (Aki Omoshaybi) are the two members of a band who are planning to make it big, and they’re on their way to their first big gig, which is certainly not going to go to plan. However, it must be a better option than staying back in London, as Ray has split from his girlfriend, due to the fact that she’s been playing away.
