Yeah. Even assuming that this latest rise in retro game prices is just a speculator’s bubble, the bubble still seems to be years away from bursting.
It’s weird that <i>2001</i> was nominated for best original screenplay (it lost to Mel Brooks’ <i>Producers</i>) but not best picture, when the movie has so little dialogue.
The summer tournaments, like the International Champions Cup, are generally considered friendly tournaments. They’re mostly an excuse to get European teams to play in Asia and the Americas.
The Practice had a fantastic final season, when they added James Spader (and later William Shatner) to the cast. I liked Alan Shore and Denny Crane much more on The Practice than on Boston Legal, as the former show was more firmly tethered to reality than the latter.
I can only imagine what two years has done to Onion.
Speaking of THAC0, I just started a nostalgia blog about 90s gaming (with a particular focus on AD&D 2e) entitled “THAC0 Thursday”: https://thac0thursday.home.blog/
Never say never. It was always assumed that the Tomy-owned Omega Supreme and Sky Lynx would never be reissued, but then Takara and Tomy merged.
It was indeed a Macross figure, originally; designed by the defunct Takatoku toy company. Hasbro’s original Transformers line didn’t just license toy designs from Takara’s Microchange and Diaclone, it licensed whatever transforming robot toys it could find, including Takatoku designs that were owned by Bandai. While…

I loved Emily VanDerWerff’s assessment, “The Lion King (2019): The cinematic equivalent of sitting in traffic.”
The real “hook” of SEAMAN is that he asks you a question once a day (as determined by the console’s calendar) and then gives you an amateur therapist spiel before he leaves you forever.
The class has struggled for identity for a variety of reasons. Their classic signature abilities have either become available to everyone (tracking and dual wielding) or else were significantly nerfed in 5e (animal companions and favored enemy). I’ve never been a fan of the narrative behind favored enemy (it makes…
Fascinating. This guy is new to me. (I was a fan from the late Hulkamania era thru the early ruthless aggression era, and just recently got back into it.) I always wondered where the veteran smarks (like the OSW Review crew) get their inside info from.
Never say never, I guess.
I remember, even in the 90s, some CD reissues of previously vinyl-only albums/songs had to resort to making a digital copy directly from the vinyl record itself, since the masters were lost.
I’ve always wondered how much forward planning Claremont did with his X-books, and how much was made up on the fly. In the latter part of his run, especially, he would drop story seeds which wouldn’t pay off for years, but it’s not necessarily obvious that he knew how it would ultimately play out. For example, Mr.…
I was glad that Claremont brought Madelyne into the X-men. He was a master at salvaging terrible story decisions made by other writers (see also, Carol Danvers’ forced pregnancy.)
Isn’t that exactly what Dawkins did in The Blind Watchmaker ?
Yeah. The parts where Adam and his friends are just hanging around and having this idyllic sort of childhood are not quite as charming as they could be. They’re too ordinary. I get that they wanted Good Omens to be a story about humanity personified, but they didn’t have to make that personification so mundane. The…
The Guardian gave it 3/5 and said pretty much the same thing as this review: that the series drags a bit whenever it shifts its focus from Crowley and Aziraphale.
