It’s interesting how much digital ink is being spilled trying to figure out whether people can buy the game with a clean conscience. I feel like I’m at a campus ministry meeting and the teens are asking, “How far can I go with my girlfriend before it’s a sin?” and not “What’s the best way to be absolutely in the clear Read more

An enormous amount, all of it blissfully ignoring that she said she got her pseudonym from a childhood alter ego and Robert Kennedy.

I think a film of average length, say 100 minutes, would suit this story very well. The novel is one of the ones that more clearly shows King just writing until he gets to a good place to cap things off, and I agree with a lot of people who say it’d’ve been better as a short story or novella. Flanagan really knows his Read more

That’s salient. I think I read the line about being blacklisted for not “doing the right thing” and interpreted “the right thing” as refusing a sexual encounter, which kinda disrupts the narrative of what he was saying. If you read it as choosing to have sex, then it becomes much clearer that he essentially said, “A Read more

I don’t care about streaming, and I don’t know any of the people in this article. I have no dog in this fight. I just want to ask one question: Am I reading correctly that this Dariani fellow asked a woman twice if she wanted to have a threesome, she declined twice, and he left her alone after that? And that’s the Read more

My Facebook friend who posts memes about Animorphs every day will be very happy to see this. And I’m happy for him. Sounds like some interesting stuff happens in the back end of the series. Hope I’ll get to see it.

Just so I’m clear, if the author had wanted to rant about how much he hates spam emails or loves Frida Kahlo paintings, would those have been approved articles for Kotaku also?

At the risk of speaking for OP, who cares if that’s the point of the article? The article is wrong, and the notion that you cannot be a good cop because the institution of policing is bad is wrong, too. And since we’re on a roll here, the idea that the institution of policing is bad is also wrong.

Orwell wrote, “We Read more

NO KIDDING. In fact, I’d argue that’s why we don’t see more of this stuff. People who do lowkey racist acts see others changing then see the flack they get for not changing earlier, or not changing the right way, or maybe changing for selfish motives, and think, “See, that’s the liberal cancel culture demanding Read more

Oh come now. Giygas is Satan at best, and the best ending for Chrono Trigger recalls the conversation in Robo’s forest where the gang posits that Someone is directing their campaign against Lavos. In the ending, I think it’s Marle or Lucca who says she thinks the “Entity” is now at peace. So for CT, you’re fighting at Read more

I agree with everything except the part where you say you liked it. Any five or ten minutes from the film was good enough, but it never built to anything, and I was checking my phone throughout without feeling like I’d missed a thing. Really, it felt like the first act of a movie stretched to 90 minutes. I’m surprised Read more

It kinda seems like a classic case of a writer just writing a scene or sequence, and people coming in after it with literary criticism to artificially prop up every decision and turn with hidden import. It’s like, “Hey, Catcher In The Rye was good, but it wasn’t a profound treatise about the darkness of the new Read more

Stop referring to her death as something she only does for Hawkeye. Stop acting like she doesn’t know it’s an integral part of restoring the lives of billions and billions of humans and other species. It might make your argument look stronger to someone who hasn’t seen the film or people who just aren’t thinking about Read more

I’m genuinely glad that works for you. Wish it would for me. I’ve been able to get an elderly couple to stop talking in the middle of an R-rated action movie (surprised they were there) and got a young man to put his phone away when he was right in front of us.

Conversely, “Please stop talking” has gotten me Read more

Tried the first episode. Did a single minute go by without her narrating? Lost interest. I read somewhere that a lot of people think it was originally a single movie that got chopped up into seven episodes. I think that would explain how meandering and padded it felt.

It’s so weird how many people are annoyed or scandalized to see you evince your opinion on something in a comments section. I guess there’s rules you and I haven’t read. Do you, man.

FWIW, I completely agree with you. Calling yourself by an awful name doesn’t assign to you all the atrocities others with that name have committed, and people (SHOCKER) don’t deserve to be punished for a crime before they commit it.

But some people love the “good guys vs. bad guys” game, Nazis are easy bad guys, and Read more

Oh, I dislike this take so very, very much. Dracula is queer because he “is considered by many to be an LGBTQ figure”? Nice passive voice to get out of having to name any of those sources, let alone cite examples of him evincing an LGBT sexuality. He never has sex or talks about his romantic feelings in the original Read more
