The Xbox Elite Series 2 controller. Tons of customization options, great ergonomics, 1 year warranty. There’s really no question. Plus with consoles and GPUs out of stock everywhere, it’s really the only way to improve your gaming experience at the moment. Yeah, there are reports of stick drift, but they improved the Read more

Unrealistically heroic is literally Steve's defining characteristic and the major driving factor of FatWS.

FWIW, there are an awful lot of straight men who have grown up in the toxic, “no homo” culture who really want media to normalize affectionate, emotionally open male friendship without any romantic undertones.

One thing I would mention about the police scene is that it wasn’t just the way they harassed Sam and asked if Bucky was okay. It was that when it finally was time to arrest Bucky, suddenly the tone was “I’m sorry Mr Barnes, but we have to arrest you.” The point of the scene wasn’t “cops harass Black people” it was Read more

Yeah, that’s the conversation we had with our ten year old (different words though). “If you don’t know what a word means, don’t repeat it.”

You’re going to want to avoid the sequels. The second one tried to explain that the immortals were aliens who crashed on earth 500 years ago or something. Aside from being a really dumb explanation in general, Connor was older than 500 years old in 1986.

Despite watching The Mummy (1999) like twice a year, I feel like I’m always due for a re-watch. Obligatory plug for the London sequence from The Mummy Returns. Most of the movie is not good, but these couple of scenes are fantastic additions to the original. Evie was become more of a fighter and Rick has become more Read more

Pillars of Eternity. I want to love isometric Infinity Engine style rpgs as much as I love the later Aurora Engine stuff, but it just doesn’t draw me in as much. Read more

I will preorder the most exclusive deluxe version of any new Crimson Skies game at any price, even if they let Activision make it, if Timothy Omundsen returns to voice Nathan Zachary.

Rare in the army maybe. They’re pretty much ubiquitous in Air Force flying squadrons. Then everybody started copying them and a bunch of non-flyers started acting like they invented them. Now every unit that wants to increase esprit de corps uses them, along with silly motivational chants, morale patches various other Read more

I was already doing most of my gaming on PC. Given that every Xbox “exclusive” launches on PC the same day, it just doesn’t make sense to upgrade. I can take that $500 bucks and by a new GPU in a year or two. That being said, PC gamers are used to incremental improvements in performance every year or so, rather than Read more

Carrie Vaughn writes good novels, but she writes amazing short stories. Check out Raisa Stepanova, The Bravest of Us Touched the Sky and The Girls from Avenger. They’re historical fiction (sci-fi elements in one of them) about women pilots in WWII.

We could maybe reevaluate the racism in some of the original stories though.
