It’s really fun.  I watched the trailer when it was first released and was so amazed, I immediately preordered.  I then went back and rewatched the trailer multiple times.  It’s just so weird, but in a completely fantastic and amazing way.

Right, I mean, how do you even pronounce Luuke?!?!?  It’s not like Zahn had them meet at a wedding where there were place cards, which means the characters HEARD is pronounced that way.

I don’t necessarily disagree that it’s not the end of the world to have parts in movies you don’t care for and so you check out. I was trying to put Germain’s argument of how he views the “bad” Star Wars movies and apply it to one he thinks is good and say it has the same moments. Since this is the internet, there can Read more

This is actually very interesting. I would agree that Faden is one of the sexiest game characters, and precisely for the reasons shown here. Yes, she is pretty, but mostly she is competent, thoughtful, and powerful. That she is also a more “real” person than videogames tend to make women really goes the extra mile: hav Read more

From my perspective it’s been the same fucking problem through the whole trilogy. Movie comes out, it’s star wars I like it and things are good for a while until Matt and Trey parker end up convincing a bunch of dismissive assholes start hording in yelling that I shouldn’t like it because XYZ. Last Jedi comes out and Read more

Just started Control a few days ago, and I was really struck by how Jesse doesn’t have to run through the usual “Chosen One” rigmarole. There’s no burden-of-responsibility “I can’t do this!” before learning to accept the responsibility of the position, and her subordinates aren’t sneering and saying “Rawr this is Read more

They same one upset over Iranians violating Iraqi sovereignty will still complain, but now they’ll be upset over being the battleground for a proxy war they want nothing to do with. Read more

I like how PlayStation naming convention is simple and clear enough that it works just as well when abbreviated (ps1, ps2, ps3, etc). I don’t think it’s as common for xbox (xb, xb1, xb1x, xbsx?).

Wii at least had the phonetics to sound like “We”, which was great in their commercials and really hit home the local multiplayer aspect. Read more

Because they can’t fly to their destination with the landing gear down and they wouldn’t want to raise the landing gear if it was possibly damaged, they might not be able to lower it again.

The Montreal team submitted a formal written request to Ottawa to dispatch fire trucks, which was initially denied due to improper signatures. So Montreal ground crews took a smoke break and a group teambuilding vacation to Antigua for a week to decide what to do next. When they returned, the forms were finalized but Read more

SURELY this will make them come to their senses like in 2004. No?

On the one hand, it’s pretty clear that nobody really planned out extensive character arcs for the leads from the outset, not even for Rey. Read more

We are all gonna miss Patrick but this was an awesome goodbye letter to us Jalops. Patrick is right when he talks about the community that exists right here. He led the way by not trying to bullshit us. He catches a lot of crap for banging up a Camaro mule but I knew this was an honest site when he POSTED about it and

Word on the street is The Drive, which is where Mike Spinelli, Tyler Rogoway, Alex Roy, Ed Niedermeyer, and a few other familiar faces currently reside. Looks like an all-star lineup :)
