Yeah I’ve always been interested in buying their games for both the minis and as a gateway to DnD for my board game playing friends. However, each time I’ve looked at reviews or how they’re played it’s played it just looks like the same amount of rules with less exploration and fun.

I think that you can’t really review this correctly if you’ve played D&D because you are not the target audience. People who played D&D can just play more D&D. Read more

I’m just here to throw my support behind the Hobbit movies. Did it need to be three forms? No. Probably two, though, to give proper spectacle to the events of the book, which pretty much sped through everything. Did it need to add characters? No, not really. Read more

It’s not even about sentient vs. nonsentient. Species names should never be capitalized, which is why “human” isn’t. In taxonomic nomenclature, a genus name is capitalized but a species name is not — Homo sapiens, Panthera leo, Gorilla gorilla gorilla, etc. And linguistically speaking, proper nouns are meant to refer Read more

Can I weigh in with what I hope will be a fairly nuanced response on the issue of mispronounced names and microaggressions? Read more

Thanks, I should have investigated it but I’ve been away from these realms for quite some time. I am returning to RPGs after a long hiatus.

I’m hoping that this does open the door for more Ravenloft material. As you say, no need to revisit Strahd and Barovia, but there is so much more to unearth in that setting.

Oh, God! I tried, I really tried to do an Andromeda re-watch sometime last fall, I think. I got about 15 minutes into the first ep before realizing how incredibly bad it was. I had no memory of so much hamming-up, scenery chewing the acting was around the horrible CGI. Yeesh.

Well one of the main characters is an Orion and we all know what they’re known for... okay the other thing they’re known for.

I agree with GarrisonDean, the score is great, though I’d have used the AMAZING Inama Nushif as my example...but it’s maybe best to wait for that to happen in the film because that whole scene gives me chills.
I thought the acting for Paul in the first Dune was pretty rough, but the actor took it up a notch for the Read more

Second this.  Children of Dune was definitely much better, and they learned to cut back on the costumes a little.

THIS. One of the things I’ve always loved about Alien is the sheer terror of not knowing. It’s the mysteries of the ship, the egg, etc. that put me on edge.

Very, very well written. I can see myself coming back to reread this from time to time.

This is a very good argument, though I would add that the main problem with Prometheus and Covenant is that Scott really doesn’t know what “cosmic horror” is. The connections to Lovecraft in the original Alien were mainly because of Dan O’Bannon (a Lovecraft and SF fan from childhood) and Giger (whose book of Read more

As much as I like Aliens, it’s nice to imagine a world where Scott made Alien and that was left to stand on its own. No sequels, prequels or crossovers. Just a horror movie set in space as a single perfect organism.
