I have plenty of ones (especially, unsurprisingly, involving Star Wars toys—it’s almost like an involuntary response that I can smell the plasticky rubber off the Hasbro/Kenner Darth Vader at a moment’s notice), but my favorite of all is more recent, from Star Wars Celebration Europe in 2016.
But without the farm, there would be no wood to chop, and with no wood to chop, there would not be this:
It’s a little rough around the edges, but as a Free to Play game it’s one of the better MMOs on the market that feels like you can get by without having to put a single penny into it.
She’s also done some voice acting since, too—last year she had a cracking role in Final Fantasy XIV’s newest expansion as one of the villains, Yotsuyu. Was delightful when I found out it was her!
I wouldn’t say the main book has consistently had this issue like it has in the latest arc, but I will admit I honestly didn’t notice anything on this level when Larroca was doing Darth Vader. I guess it’s because the main Star Wars book has more familiar faces—like, actual faces instead of Vader’s helmet—regularly…
It’s not even a knock on photo referencing, which, like I said, is a completely valid tool in an artist’s arsenal (although anyone who’s heard of Greg Land knows its history has not been without its controversies).
I’ve been thinking about writing this for a while—in all honesty, it’s only just happened due to an apprehension I’ve held against feeling like I’m singling out an artist who’s work I otherwise mostly enjoy. But yes, we linked back to Charlie’s piece at Polygon directly in the piece as well because a) it’s on similar…
Man, the first EA Battlefront’s A-Wings were broken as hell. Like, to the point that it was incredibly hard to actually hit them, broken.
I mean, it’s not a spoiler—I’ve not seen the movie, but we’ve only seen X-Wings and A-Wings for the Resistance in terms of Starfighters so far. Who knows, maybe, but I don’t think they’re back, sadly.
I am honestly kind of sad the B-Wing didn’t come back for Last Jedi, but at least we got a completely new design in the Resistance Bomber instead. B-Wings are so cool.
LANDO FLEW THE FALCON THOUGH BECAUSE HE DIDN’T WANT TO BE SEEN IN ONE OF THESE LAMEASS SPACESHIPS
I mean, it’s true, I do suck.
Video game A-Wings are always great because they’re overpowered as hell compared to what they should be DON’T BUY INTO THEIR LIES
When I was new at io9 and only slightly more of a bumbling idiot who didn’t know what the hell I was doing than I am now, Katharine was my guiding hand. The person I could go to to translate some gobbledegook Britishism into language someone other than me could actually understand, a sounding board for ideas. Most…
If you’re passionate about the material you’re reading being honest with how you feel about it is going to be more engaging than just like, trying to get a grab bag of covering everything. If you really care about what a particular run on a character or a limited series had to say about a theme or an issue, call it…
I very briefly had whatever the UK equivalent of a minor was in a degree for English Language and Journalism, but Literature study was always my much stronger and passionate avenue of study, so I actually dropped that all together to go all in on an English Literature track instead.
Toy Story. My first as a kid, still love the hell out of it. A lot of the sentimentality I have for toys today comes from those movies.
It mostly feels like Star Trek to me as it is, and I’ve been fine with it doing some different things. The time loop episode was great and that was the real “oh yeah, this is some Star Trek” moment for me.
I actually came to Gawker née Gizmodo Media through Kotaku comments, so I am a huge fan of everyone’s work there. I’ve really loved Heather’s critique pieces a lot lately—I’ve not played Wolfenstein II but her piece about BJ’s body and power in that game is one of the smartest things I’ve read about it—and Gita’s Sims…
I don’t dislike Funko Pops as much as some - I have like, 7 of them on my desk at the minute, although 3 of those are Porgs. But man, that Dead Laura Palmer Pop for Twin Peaks sure is weird and kinda creepy!
