Not to give any spoilers, but the final section drags on for about two hours without a save point (if I remember correctly). Somehow, I made through on my first try, but afterwards I was so bleary eyed and exhausted that I can’t ever imagine picking it up again. So, plan your marathon accordingly (and make sure to purc Read more

As a dad with an 8 year old, I credit games for helping him emotionally during this difficult time. He misses school (hates class via zoom) and his friends. He didn’t have a birthday party. What “experts” should really worry about is how the pandemic is affecting the mental health of young children. I let him play Read more

Maybe this is considered strategy guide material, but I like knowing what decisions I need to make to get the best endings in games. I’m a happy ending person and I don’t like sinking 100+ hours into large games without knowing the ramifications.

You should try to get an interview with this man, Tarik Khalid. A black police officer who wore a MAGA hat to infiltrate the crowd and extricate officers in danger. It’s very likely he saved lives — while putting his own at extreme risk. Yet, the force suspended him and who knows how other media will tear him apart. Read more

Nathan Drake brought that style of charming clumsiness to videogames — so here’s hoping that the new Indy game is able to capture Uncharted’s magic while still being its own thing.

Maybe an Agents of Shield follow up? I’m not sure how well the alternate universe is doing with Deke Shaw in charge of Shield. A universe hopping Captain America would probably be very welcome.

While I’m sure these deals have been in the works for a while, I wonder if the fall out from CP ‘77 is making developers more hesitant to pursue new IP’s. CP ‘77's technical failures, coupled with intense criticisms over its work environment shook up the industry. I imagine that established brands create less Read more

I worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends. So Lord, won’t you buy me a PS5?

I’m fine with the scene, but in terms of Black representation, I’ve always been upset that Franklin can’t play tennis. Sure, it’s okay for a white, homicidal maniac to enjoy a game of tennis — but a black man from the hood? No way, that’s just too unrealistic, even for GTA. Read more

I’m going with Nathan Drake. Even though jumps are mostly automatic, Nathan’s often clumsy leaps paired with his shouts of “Oh, crap!” are the best. I also have to credit Nathan for cleaning up my own vocabulary because I’ve instinctively replaced “shit” with “crap.” From games to driving and work assignments, not a

Despite everything, I’m still feeling hopeful for 2021. Watching Warnock and Ossoff win GA felt like Luke’s entrance in the Mandalorian. A reserved sense of hope followed by triumphant jubilation. I think we’re going to be okay.

I recently gave Hitman 2 a go to get ready for this game. I thought I was pretty good at games, but H2 destroyed me. After several failed attempts at the first level, I was only successful at passing it when I played it like Nathan Drake. Is this just one of those games that requires some practice, or does it have a Read more

Great points, especially your last paragraph. At best, 13 is generally Doctorish, defined only by the character’s most basic traits. Chibnall failed to give her a single compelling mark. 9, 10, 11, and 12 all have starkly different personalities, while 13 is as safe as the character can be. Whittaker has all the Read more

This episode was like a bowl like a boiled egg. Despite being perfectly serviceable as a plain, old boiled egg, there’s so much that can be done to add flavor and character. The Daleks were uninteresting. The dialog was stiff — you’d think that the companions would be little more concerned about the Doctor’s

I’d like to see a totally new genre. Every game type we have now has been around since at least the PS1/N64 era. I’m not sure what that genre might be, but with all this advanced technology, something truly never-before-seen must be possible.

Too few comments that actually recognize his innate talent. It takes a powerful personality to be able to use your body to bring a character like that to life. I bet Jarod could have pursued a career in comedy -- some of the best comedians started out with great impersonations -- Andy Kaufman, Jim Carrey, etc. And not Read more
