Not that it wasn’t rough for them, but London not only played three matches in one day, and the last two back to back, but they also had to play NYXL *twice*. It’s not impossible, but there’s no shame at all in Houston losing to teams this good. They’re still some of the best players in the world.
I was really pulling for NYXL but I have to agree. Not many teams could do what London did. They played 14 maps in one day and they were as strong as ever by the last one. They played hard and they played well. They deserve the prize for that one.
This is so key. There are a ton of interactions and strategies I never would’ve figured out if I hadn’t played other characters. It took me way too many levels to figure out that Genji even had a reflect ability. And I wondered why I always died as Bastion against this tiny squishie. Oh, and Reaper heals when he deals…
And now NY toppled Seoul, the last remaining undefeated team.
I don’t know if it was intentional, but my favorite part of that effect was that it felt like she stepped out of the old film. She was “off” but not in the Rogue One type of way. She felt like she had the living human equivalent of film grain. Her color grading was just the right amount of different from the rest of…
I am stupidly excited for this movie but, yes, I’m feeling this, too. And it’s not just those three. Abomination was Hulk with a few spikes, Kaecilius and Doctor Strange were basically the same science-person-becomes-sorcerer archetype (though the Dormammu ending mercifully spared us a boring magic v. magic fight).…
When will our long national nightmare end?
I just don’t understand why we have to start selling everything months in advance.
This is a problem caused entirely by pre-ordering.
This almost seemed clever to me, if a simplistic riff on the RDJ Sherlock Holmes style fight analysis, but with mental holograms. But then, in the next episode when it appears again, Karnak uses more mental holograms to determine which direction West is by observing where the sun is. Perhaps a Boy Scout can chime in…
Yes, he was a stupid, geeky kid who had no clue how to act around the opposite sex. Yes, he was unsophisticated, clingy, and weird. But who WASN’T like that in their first relationship?
Jesus dude, are you serious?
Well, part of the reason no one’s stopping her is because there’s virtually no one left with what they see as a “rightful” claim. The War of the Five Kings, while obviously contrived by all parties involved, at leaned heavily on the idea that each (or three, if we’re picky) of the five had some reason to think it…
This one trick really works!
This is an instance where someone on an enthusiast publication is covering a topic that they’re a fan of (and it would seem so are other people, judging by the traffic). They’re given the freedom to cover what they and the audience thinks is cool. Not because a company paid for it, not because there’s a demand for…
Exactly. I loved this about Billy. He never questioned it. Maybe he never even got it. It’s not outside the realm of possibility that being a Power Ranger was exactly as scary and unfamiliar as living a normal life for him. But he wasn’t going to let any diagnosis hold him back.
This mechanic makes sense, but I really, really, really wish it weren’t a game-interrupting cutscene every time. I understand from the glowy red embers and the red moon in the sky that it’s happening. I would like to continue questing, please.
Thanks! I think.
