Dead by Daylight review – a decent stab at an interactive slasher flick

  • 0

Whether you play as the killer or prey there is gruesome fun to be had, but this console transfer cuts too many cornersWatching a good slasher movie is a highly interactive experience. You cover your eyes, you jump, you lurch forward on the sofa, but mostly you yell incredulous statements at the characters such as: “No, don’t go in there!”; “Make sure he’s actually dead”, and the classic “Don’t sneak off to have sex!”. As soon as you’ve seen a few Halloween rip-offs or Scream, which made a virtue of those tropes, you know all the beats of the slasher experience – and we always think we could make a better job of surviving.Last year, little known Canadian studio Behaviour Interactive gave PC owners the chance to test this theory with the release of Dead By Daylight, an online multiplayer slash-’em-up. Now the game has been launched on PS4 and Xbox One, and with the similar Friday 13th also available, it is a big moment for the emerging genre of asymmetric multiplayer horror. Continue reading...

Art of noise: how galleries became the best places to rave

  • 0

Bad sound and indifferent crowds have traditionally made galleries dangerous places for live music, but a new breed of curators are changing the tuneNext to a shiny Jeff Koons sculpture inside the Broad museum’s cavernous second-floor lobby, museum attendees mill around taking selfies with Takashi Murakami’s day-glo murals that dominate the wall space. As sultry electronica plays, a crowd of about two dozen sit cross-legged. Outside the building, designed by New York architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, there’s a stage where Geneva Jacuzzi is beaming out her brand of cold-wave pop and performance art. Later on, Jenny Hval will emerge on the same stage to play her vampiric pop. This is all part of the Broad’s Summer Happenings event, which combines music and art under loosely defined themes (tonight is dedicated to Nico and Andy Warhol, whose work adorns the Broad’s walls).

Hamilton-Vettel could be great F1 rivalry but penalty rulings must be open | Giles Richards

  • 0

Baku’s incendiary incident provided priceless publicity for the sport but its subsequent judgments need to be more understandable for drivers and fansThe 2017 Formula One season finally reached ignition point in Baku and what a glorious conflagration it has started. Who can not be revelling in the prospect of a championship fight between Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel defined not by the buddy movie soundbites of mutual respect that had preceded it but by the edge and needle that characterises F1’s truly great rivalries. What had been a gripping tussle for the title now might just have the ingredients to match the heights of Senna v Prost and Piquet v Mansell.It was, fittingly, a heated moment itself that brought the bromance to an end. When Vettel swerved into Hamilton’s car in Azerbaijan the moment everyone had been waiting for arrived. “The gloves are off” was the pleasingly gleeful response from the Mercedes executive director, Toto Wolff. We shall have to wait until Austria to see what happens next time the two get in the ring but in the meantime the incident remains controversial and still potentially has greater ramifications – not least with the announcement on Wednesday that the incident will now be examined by the FIA to decide whether to take further action.

'It gets a bit boring': a Montrose fan on 21 seasons in Scotland's fourth division

  • 0

Montrose have not been promoted or relegated since John Major was in No10 and George Michael was at No1, but the fans’ love of their club is undyingBy Andrew Galloway for Nutmeg magazine, part of the Guardian Sport Network“Montrose born and bred,” is how Graham Christieson introduces himself to me over the phone. By the time we’ve established that he has been going to Links Park for 34 years, I’m hooked. I’m about to get the answer to a question I’ve been dying to ask: when you’ve been in Scotland’s bottom tier since John Major was running the country, just what keeps you going? Whatever it is, it’s to be commended.If supporters are the lifeblood of the game, Montrose’s dedicated fans could surely set up their own blood bank. The last time the club played a league match outside of Scotland’s lowest tier some of their players weren’t even born, the late George Michael was at No1 in the UK singles chart with Fastlove and the Scottish Parliament was merely words on a sheet of paper that would form part of New Labour’s manifesto.
