This is the story of how corporate raiding, complacency, excess, and incompetence are gutting a media company that matters to tens of millions of people. It’s not a novel story, and perhaps not even scandalous by the standards of corporate opulence: A shark-obsessed boss, millions wasted on consultants, and an…
Hey, I recall you being quite the booster of 2017's Everything. I finally played it last weekend (having bought it during a Steam sale based on your praise) and I was floored by how good it was. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it’s like poetry in motion. I was transfixed!
I want to stay up and watch the Persona 5 anime, but my cat keeps telling me to go to sleep.
While I appreciate the Adventure Time-inspired exclamation in your comment, I will mention it treads dangerously close to saying a liiiiiittle too much.
The Unbelievable Gwenpool was an odd book when it was first announced and it continued to be an odd book when it came out. The initial inspiration for the book was a variant cover for Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2, which depicted a female Deadpool wearing a hot pink and white costume lounging in a pool.
Current reading: New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson. About 3/4 done with it. Another big, intricate world for KSR, this time a post sea-level rise New York City. The book follows a number of characters who all live in the Met Life Tower, which is now a housing co-op in a Venice-Like Manhattan. As usual with KSR,…
First and foremost, Mario Kart 8 on the 8th is back for the new year on the Switch! You can join with the above tourney information OR join anyone already in the match (like me!). My Switch Friend Code is 6396-2171-3331 if we’re not Switch friends yet under the handle Jarathen.
I liked Nier: Automata because it asked me to delete my save file after I had finished the storyline, and I agreed it was the right thing to do. I’m the kind of person who keeps incomplete save files I haven’t touched since middle school. There’s always that chance, however slim, that I’ll come back to that…
TONIGHT...#Wii U# MK8 on the 8th is OFFICIALLY OVER. There will be no more Wii U scheduled racing for Gameological because creating Tournaments was intrinsically tied to Miiverse. I’m sorry I didn’t think to create a permanent Tournament in time, but it’s appropriate to give the reins over to Switch and embrace…
A transcript option! That’s how you offer video!
You soft-launching a YouTube gaming channel Derrick? Don’t get racist all of a sudden on us okay?
Whhhhooooaaaa, look at all that alcohol!!
Man, Tee K.O. is one of the best ever. The last time I played, one of my slogans was simply a Bray Wyatt-esque “Run.”
I got to see Amy Pietz’s naked butt and her throw up red wine like she was in a remake of The Exorcist funded by Paul Masson.
Got my SNES Classic hooked up. Going with the pixel perfect setting for now. Invested a bit of time in Super Mario Kart (riotous, forgot how much it actually feels like go karting), Star Fox (feels like an abstract art piece from outer space, both bizarre and captivating, but that frame rate chugs) and my surprise…
Okay, first thing’s first. In DL’s absence for the month, I’ll be hosting October’s Mario Kart 8 on the Eighth. This month’s theme? Shells, because “shell” rhymes with “hell,” and look; it’s not like I can just make us play on nothing but Twisted Mansion.
Or you could read the librarian’s actual response suggesting that donating books to a library in an already wealthy, predominately white neighborhood is dumb, giving suggestions as to better places to choose, but nah the White House’s narrative makes for better clickbait, good job AV Club!
