Honestly, if S3 had just one ep that really explored the theme of “the humans are in cycles just like the robots” then I think all of Dolores’ shit would resonate more. As it was, when she did her thing, I was just like “Oh! Gosh. Okay. So...so yeah.”

Nicholas Hoult deserves a goddamn Emmy for taking what’s basically a cartoon character and giving him not only nuance, but such an engaging presence you can’t take your eyes off him.

Considering he’s a monster, basically, it says a lot about me unfortunately that I was basically rooting for him at the end. But I just Read more

Ian, how does the Braindance tech work - is it like the gameplay element from Tacoma kinda? It sounds very cool and right up my alley.

Please, gaming community, don’t flip out about this. The best solution is to start with all races having nuance instead of stereotyping from the get-go, and then YOU, as a DM/gaming group, can go whole hog on old/established tropes if you want. Nothing stops you from making all orcs brutal, savage monsters. Read more

The music is done in part by Jessica Curry, BAFTA award winner for her previous work on The Chinese Room’s games and probably one of the best composers working in the gaming space. I cherish her work. It’s amazing.

That’s why you liked the music so much.

Those are, honestly, a little more specific (sorry Hungary, Africa, Iran) than something like a TOASTER. Or a CELL PHONE.

Also let’s not fucking forget you have people like Hermione that come from, you know, the muggle world and yet somehow the minute they enter the wizarding world no information is sent up the chain. Read more

For some reason it boggles my mind that those two came out the same year. They’re temporally FAR apart in my mind, and I can’t explain why.

My favorite fucking thing is these idiots not knowing shit like what a toaster is, and marveling at cars. How up your own asses WERE YOU for centuries/millenia? Read more

Technically impossible to ban those heroes in a row (you can’t do that with how they do hero pools) but I pick up what you’re putting down. I think the game would look a lot different if they didn’t release with so few support and tank players (and gave tanks, especially, better cues for doing well like DPS has Read more

I liked it? I think the B is the appropriate grade. It also really, really shows off how shitty Avenue 5 was. My lord.

I absolutely love him as Superman. He and Gal Godot are the best parts of the DCU or whatever it’s called, imho. He’s wasted under Snyder.

Is the point of Molly just to make us like Issa more, even though Issa also kinda sucks at times? I don’t know. This whole season has just felt kinda “blah” although I like that the block party wasn’t the finale.

Riley, that is absolutely one of my and my partner’s favorite shows in the world. Just a delightful slice-of-life with very lived-in dialogue - you can tell this is modeled after how real people interact, connect, and have relationships. Read more

This sucks quite a bit. I haven’t gone in a few years but it’s always one of my favorite board/ttg experiences. Read more
