The NYT, and these parents, need to mind their own fucking business. Whenever I hear parents talking about how their kids need to play less games or spend less time on the computer, THIS is what I think of:

As a mid-30s guy who played a lot of games, specifically Animal Crossing and its built in sense of virtual community, during all of this to keep sane and in touch with friends and family, this NYT article can kindly fuck off. I’ll keep sussing my 8-year-old nieces and nephews in Among Us from afar on a weekly basis (be Read more

I’m glad that they do. I much prefer swapping some rechargeable batteries than having to dock and charge a controller.

I just forced myself to watch the first season of Lower Decks (it has 2 good episodes right at the end, I should have just skipped right to them) and wow did that just make me miss The Orville even more.

We have pretty strict guidelines and protocols.  My show has been lucky because we don’t shoot on a big studio lot.  Other shows haven’t.  We do test everyone at least twice per week.  Some up to 4-5 times per week.  I personally get tested 4 times per week.  M,W, and F with rapid tests, and a 3-day lab test on wed at Read more

Exactly! Him possessing a guy didn’t really add anything to the story anyway. She makes a wish, he gets a new body, his soul is in it, bing bam boom. It felt so arbitrary and poorly thought out.

The last scene, where the original owner talks to Diana, was really uncomfortable (even though it’s played as sweet, or some indication that Diana is opening up).  She’s been sleeping with this man, without his knowledge or consent, and then she just kinda smiles at him... with context, it’s a bit creepy.

Immediately afterward, Barbara wishes to be just like Diana but Diana all but forgets Barbara exists because Steve shows up in the body of another man Read more

You mean by pointing out a clear example of the poor writing that a lot of people point out as a main flaw of the film? Thats not trying hard to dislike a film, it strikes me as a pretty standard takeaway.

The scenes you describe are perfect examples of how everyone and everything in the movie just moves along a narrative track to tick off specific boxes whether or not it makes any sense from a character motivation standpoint. Read more

I have to respectfully disagree. I think its autonomy was one of its biggest faults. I’m an unabashed fan of comic book movies. I generally like them all (generally...). With that bias, I always like to talk to my wife, friends, family, and coworkers who are not fans about their thoughts on these movies. I didn’t like Read more

I’ll never trust any of this mans reviews. This movie was a hot loooooong mess with extremely questionable choices. I can’t believe the trailer was better than the movie. It had so much potential, you can see glimpses of it when you watch but I swear there must have been some backstage drama. That’s the only way this Read more

Wonder Woman 1984 is unique in that it’s a standalone film without the burden of all the other DCEU films weighing it down, and yet it still manages to be a muddied, difficult to understand mess.

Elsewhere there’s Fuzion Frenzy, an absurd, ersatz Mario Party clone with a bizarre Jet Set Radio art style, which is best known for being one of the most ancillary launch titles of all time. If you opened up an Xbox on Christmas morning with a copy of Fuzion Frenzy instead of Halo you probably still carry trauma to Read more

Rational Me: “Bioware isn’t what it used to be, the recent departures were an even more clear sign of that, and given that it appears to be Liara in that trailer it means that there’s going to be a lot of ME3 related branches that are going to be an utter nightmare to tie up. I don’t see a way they can do it without Read more

No one is “stuck” in a Gold or Gamepass subscription. This isn’t a gym membership where they’ll all but take your first born child to keep you signed up. It’s one click on the website to cancel. “But I want the products offered though” is not being “stuck” in the subscription, that’s called... wanting the products Read more
