As an older gamer, it is a little sad that you couldn’t spare a sentence to the fact that the Origin trademark in gaming predates this digital storefront. EA purchased Origin Systems, developers of Ultima in 1992. They went on to create one of the early MMORPGs in Ultima Online that pioneered a lot of the online Read more

Before anyone starts whining that “He was just cheating on his wife, sure that’s bad, but why is he being fired for that?!”, a couple of points: Read more

it can be exceedingly easy to forget that up until very recently, queer characters more or less didn’t exist in the animation space outside of being the butt of jokes. Read more

This is why I’m so reluctant to discuss politics or morals with people. Yeah Ubisoft may have appropriated questionable source material but the message is obvious. On its face, to me, the quote is about standing in solidarity with other groups because we all have something in common. It’s also about not letting an Read more

The thing about Cyborg is there are way to many heavy hitters around him in the Justice League.   Read more

Never read the comics, and when I saw that scene I thought it was one of the dumbest scenes in the whole franchise. It honestly broke the 4th Wall because of how obviously absurd it was in-universe and how it was clearly just meant to be the filmmakers speaking directly to fans at home in the most blatant, ludicrous Read more
