Lack of new Viva Pinata games is my main reason for no longer caring about the Xbox consoles. It was licensed from a kid’s tv show, though, and I don’t think the show even still exists, so the whole franchise just kind of disappeared into the ether. Still, every time MS launches a new console, I cross my fingers and Read more

Well, I guess being wrong is kind of your thing, then. Go look it up. The pilot of Supergirl actually had 13 million viewers.

If you thought this show was going to survive her terrible new costume and those hideous bangs, this must be your first week watching television. Read more

This is what I keep saying! You won’t NEED a ps5 until Christmas of 2021, at the earliest. Probably summer of 2022. Unless you require a ps5 to prove how cool you are to someone, there’s really no compelling reason to engage the circus of trying to buy one now.

Judging from the responses around here, I bet there are a TON of people who simply don’t realize their ISP has a data cap because they’ve never gone over the 1tb limit and gotten the email.

I am eternally grateful that video games and I grew up together, because there’s really no way to experience any of this stuff correctly in retrospect. At the time, those graphics were fantastic, and the gameplay was unlike anything that had ever existed previously. It was an extremely ambitious game, on all kinds of Read more

Well, the campaign missions are full of collectibles you could miss, so the ability to replay them is obviously coming at some point in the near future.

I was surprised at how different they all feel. I wonder if they can keep it up in the long run. Because making a half dozen characters unique to play is a lot different than making 100 characters unique to play, and clearly 100 is where this all headed.

If it can’t have backlighting, maybe there’s some way to make it translucent and at least give people some options. Read more

I could not agree more. This is the dumbest imaginable time to release a new generation of consoles. I’m going to ignore both these new systems and save money for the new improved Switch. Read more

She’d make more money in Second Life. I know a lot of women who support themselves and their families doing virtual sex work in there.

The beauty of this, of course, is that those pictures of her will endure for hundreds of years and help define these protests for every generation that didn’t experience them first hand.

Those are my grandfather’s favorite books. I’m not sure if that’s a vote for or against, though.

And that’s why you download shows you love to an external hard drive, instead of trusting the world to take care of these things for you. Because they’re going to fuck it all up. They’re going to lose music rights, or change their mind about something, or remaster it with horrible CG effects, or decide a joke has aged Read more

That’s a really interesting point about the streamers. I’m sure you’re right. Twitch stream communities are very active, and easily mobilized by their streamers. You could easily get twenty thousand bad reviews from twitch people who had technically never played the game, but were extremely familiar with it, Read more

Oh, thank god. This will fuel another twenty-five years of Children of the Corn jokes. We were perilously close to losing that thread.
