I had hoped to see something different. like Rey turn to the dark side and Finn fight to bring her back (Rey had a LOT to be angry about), or both of them teaming up to take down Kylo Renn in the finale. Either way Finn and Rose got screwed plot wise. Read more
I’ve been on the other side of these type of events - prepping for trade shows like this are an ENORMOUS amount of work and stress for the people doing the actual work, and (probably the deciding factor) corporate cost. If I was someone who had to prepare for E3, I would be glad it is done. No more building demos for… Read more
Waiting on a patch for the large dead zone on the right stick on Xbox before buying. Supposedly one can fix with a pro controller, but nah. Read more
Love GB1, GB2 had its parts, afterlife was fun. Gil Kenan directed Monster House which I love, and I enjoyed GB: Afterlife, which Kenan wrote. Patton has surprised me in the past, too. I guess I’m intrigued enough to see it. Read more
I don’t really eat red meat anymore. But I’d give lab grown beef a try. They need that one sooner! I bet McDonald’s would be all in. Read more
Obligatory “this business will get out of control.”
I like “Return of the King” but no way should it have beaten “Master and Commander” for best picture. They should have given Peter Jackson a special achievement award for the trilogy, because M&C was the better movie vs RotK. Read more
If it was awful in the past, Elon can make worse. I’m sure of it.
What actor wants to sign on for another clusterfuck of a trilogy written and re-written by a constantly changing set of creators? What director wants that burden now? Even visual effects artists are bracing for the unpaid overtime. Read more
Worked at a place 20+ years. Company was aquired by a big corporation.
Started working from home as the pandemic shut everything down.
April 1 zoom call with the company CEO: “If you’re on this call, you no longer have a job. Bye!” Read more
My Pixel 7 and the GF’s Pixel 6a have been pretty darn buggy. Was hoping for better experience than this. My Pixel 5 was rock solid. Read more
Game pass to the rescue again. Played it on xbox, where dual stick controls make it a enjoyable dose of Nostalgia. Do I see seams in geometry in expansive outdoor sections? yeah. Does it bother me? Nope! Fun enough. It works. I just want a break from AC: Odyssey here and there. The music still kicks ass, the gameplay… Read more
I definitely would not have known about this without Kotaku coverage. At that price point, hardly anyone would. Don’t give them any ammo for the alt-right twitter crowd. Read more
I want to kill all the cultists in Odyssey, but IMO, Valhalla sounds like too much time for me. I want to try other games. I usually find I need a Ubisoft break after beating one of their games, anyway. I can come back to the formula once in a while and really enjoy it. Read more
Sometimes/barely, lol. It’s more “Mercenary Creed” than “Assassins Creed.” I’ve stealth killed a lot of NPCs and targets, but feels like it doesn’t count. Read more
They could make smaller games to cut down on dev time and costs. I’m enjoying AC: Odyssey on Game Pass, but holy hell is this game overwhelmingly large. People have told me AC: Valhalla is “too much game.” I’m worried that completing this game might mean other games I want to play on game pass will leave by the time… Read more
