Alien: Isolation – OMC MINI REVIEW

0 comments

Summer’s over, which can only mean one thing – sitting at home with the heating on playing games all winter, rad! So first up for the OMC mini review we have Alien: Isolation.


This game is AMAZING!


Without a doubt this is the Alien game we have all been waiting for. Set after the events of Alien, you play as Ripley’s daughter trying to find out what happened on the Nostromo from the first film.


Visually, the game is spot on, from the retro 70s-esque computers you can log into on the ship to the whole ship decor and atmosphere… it’s like being in Alien and it just adds to the tense game play. It’s not just the look of the game, but the emotion and the pacing… it’s a slow burner with panic-induced moments. In fact, everything about this is proper next-level rad!


It’s less of a ‘kill everything that moves’ shooter game and more of a ‘shit! shit! shit! run, hide and hide some more’ unless you want the Alien to rip you to shreds.


So sitting on my sofa with my cat, Jones, we played non-stop for about 20 hours, freaking out and getting proper scared. Tense doesn’t even come close to the feeling of playing this. Proper edge-of-the-seat panic is aided by the fact there’s no auto saves in this game and the save points are few and far between. It perfectly captures the fear and tension evoked by Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic film.


I can’t recommend this enough. Even if you only have a passing interest in the Alien(s) films this game is so worth buying.


There are flaws, but only minor ones, so screw it – this game gets the OMC seal of approval with 10/10!

Double mix sunday!!! OMC’s The Grump wheels up this ‘back in the day’ mix form 2003 and its rocking!


Pretty much how our nights often sounded, there’s hiphop and breaks, mainly. I wish I’d done the first 5-10mins differently, but overall I still like it, despite some cheesy bits. All those AV8 bootlegs Damon introduced me to, various cut ups etc, getting battered with Nick…. I feel like a dinosaur.

I Hate Pubs

0 comments

omc-pub


The Glastonbury Festival is upon us – several days of great music/cider/beer/food in some beautiful countryside, OMC action – Blimey, you never had it so good. As you’re walking away from a bar that quite simply served you what you wanted and you sit down to eat your choice of food with no fuss, would you ever think ‘why can’t we do this all year round?’ 24/7 festival impracticalities aside, I like getting a drink and just sitting down in a field.


I’m fed up of pubs. To be more specific, I’m fed up of what ‘we’ have done to them. The Gastropub can do one. Don’t get me wrong, I like to see a range of drinks and food on offer, but get the basics right first. I expect a few simple things from a pub – decent beer, a seat, snacks or basic pub food. A nice interior and clientele is good but I’m not making a lifestyle choice – I want a drink.


Decent beer, for a start. I’m not being all snobby about ale vs lager etc, just keep a decent pint that doesn’t taste like you need to clean the pipes, whatever it is. Have a few choices on draught too, that’s always a bonus. Good range of soft drinks? Hurray! Not everyone’s alcohol intake is ‘upper side of social’ and some days you need to just ease into it. Besides, ‘soft drink’ is another name for mixers. I hate it when you feel like the drinks cost more purely because of the decor. I don’t want to have to undergo a credit check when I order a round because the Landlord has decided to only stock ‘craft beers’ and Trappist ales for the Brylcreem and beard set. Drink lager if you want, I’ll happily have a pint of a local bitter. People make an atmosphere, the type of welcome they receive… not battered watering cans, vintage guitars or a cow skull. Its a pub, not a shoot for Elle Decoration.


How about a choice of snacks? You know, crisps, nuts, that kind of thing. Doesn’t have to be full old school pickled eggs and all that. Brilliant if you make these snacks fresh and they come in a bowl, that’s great. I’d still like the choice of a packet of crisps though. I don’t think taking the same beer nuts that every other pub has, keeping them in whatever your wacky take is on a Kilner jar is then charging £3 for them in a bloody ramekin is cool either.


I like to be able to get a table, just to sit down at, with a drink  – not be made to feel like its for the proper customers who have come in to eat a meal. A pub is a public house, its not an abbreviation for ‘restaurant’. Have a restaurant area, sure, but don’t make the bar feel like the reception area. You end up standing around awkwardly, in the way no matter where you are. I get that pubs have to sell food to make money. I want to eat in pubs too. What happened to good basic pub food though? Pub menu, things with chips, some pies, roast dinner. Simple you’d think but surprising how few places do it. Chain pubs do, but its bland, there must be a middle ground?


People tend not to have a ‘local’ any more, its an old fashioned concept. Do you want to be in the pub where there’s a rambling old guy in the corner, lads at the bar ranting about the footie and underrage drinkers hiding in the smoking area (used to be called the beer garden)? I wonder if the upside of that was you got to know people you didn’t otherwise meet, another chance to see the good in people as well as the bad. A chance to be part of your community, rather than going to the other side of town because they have these great mismatched ‘vintage’ chairs and a moosehead on the wall… hang on, this has turned into a grumpy old man rant…
