I thought this was trending towards an exit post, so I am just selfishly relieved you weren’t saying goodbye.
I don’t think it’s an immense stretch, she has offered to dress-up. She’s clearly interested in some intersect between his fur fantasies and her own desires. The larger issue is how complex that communication process is likely to be. We can seldom really isolate our kinks down to the core components, and if it’s a… Read more
I’d stand by it dude. It’s slow burn observational story-telling is still great. I’d still love it if it was brand new.
It’s part of the problem with introducing anime, via Ghibli films. Those films don’t require the ‘cultural adjustment’ that most of the genre requires to allow one to see through to central story telling. I’ve not been as avid a watcher as I am sure many are, and I still often cringe at the male behavior that is… Read more
Still won by turn 7. Which is fine, it’s neat deck that is going to hit hard and fast if it’s cards come together. And while Ice mage is not going to win by turn seven (though it was some sort of hybrid, but not mid-range.) The majority of those are geared for hard fast starts. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind losing… Read more
I feel much the same, I’ll miss adventures as it was a solid way to get money, add play time, rewards that remain valuable and provide a sort of ‘stable’ of good cards that nearly everyone had a fair chance at. Experienced players will still get all the ‘deck critical cards’ but the middle semi-casual player is… Read more
Yeah it’s great, but still not as good as Suikoden II.
I think many have stated that they might agree in principle, but not in fact. It does seem lame, unnecessary and deliberately ‘gamed’ to bank on character recognition rather then narrative quality. It didn’t turn out to be the case. His resurgence added another villainous element disconnected from the overpowering… Read more
It’s an excellent show, it starts poorly and isn’t always perfectly consistent but it’s still excellent. It deals with Anakin’s drift towards the dark side, and the horrors of war better (although subtle) then any of the prequel films and better then any children’s show can be expected too. Though I certainly… Read more
It truly does. At moments it’s good enough for me to just be pleased it exists even if it meant spawning the monstrosities that are the prequel films. They fought a war, all these wise and principled people ignored the fact that they were turning their young prodigy into a warrior, a soldier, a weapon. Every time he… Read more
Your point is taken, but to suggest the in comparison to the Skywalker’s and other near mythic characters that usually lead films in the Star Wars saga is disingenuous because they could have been much worse at things is a little facetious. They are scrappier, they do lack the galaxy defining prowess or fanciful… Read more
I never quite understand this critique, he is legitimately terrible at lots of things, he’s childish and arrogant and prone to ‘cheating’ for dramatic impression. The fact that he doesn’t spend a lot of time talking about the things he sucks at (though they are mentioned) is really more about how he sells himself. Read more
No you can’t, but you can comport yourself with more class and respect for others then Patrick seems willing. His childish outbursts are unwarranted.
You need to contrast the value of his model vs his predictions based on that model. He writes articles about analyzing the data, he makes extrapolations. Those are predictions, and while they use the model as central to the discussion, the existence of the model the primary purpose, is the model. Perhaps his… Read more
