Re: Anyone planning on picking up a Steam Deck?

For me I basically never video game anywhere except at home these days, and if I'm gaming at home, I'm gonna be gaming on my desktop. I do have a switch lite, the one that can't dock to a TV, that I use very sparingly to play indie 2d-action platformers and little else while lying in bed on a lazy m...

Re: Marvel's TV Shows

So Loki Season One is in the bag and Season Two is on the way... which I think is the first confirmed season two for the newest batch of MCU Disney+ TV shows.[1]... ... ...[1] WandaVision is explicitly NOT getting a second season and you can see why. I don't see an immediate path for it. Wanda, Vis...

Re: Black Widow

Another edge that Winter Soldier has over this movie (to add to the multitude) was that the stakes were so much clearer. In this one the only pressing stakes are The Red Room continuing to exist and cause trouble the same way it has been for the past 30 or so years In winter soldier there was escala...

Re: Black Widow

Very similar to Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Half drama and half action. The drama and acting are excellent, and the action is extremely generic and tension less (mostly). And if I don't really like half the movie I can't give it a stellar grade. Maybe 3/5? I think the main issue is it's gonna be ...

Re: Keep the game alive?

Yeah this is a weird one that doesn't really have a solution that will please all consumers. With TTRPGs I think it's meaningfully different from a lot of other types of games, because you don't need there to be a thriving community of players of your favorite edition to keep playing it, you just ne...

Re: Marvel's TV Shows

THAT is an interesting theory. I'm not a comic TVA authority by any means, but what little I know from the comics matches with what they are doing here. Although that doesn't necessarily preclude a version of your theory where the Time Keepers are 'kinda' bad guys. My limited knowledge from...

Re: Marvel's TV Shows

I will say that I find the action scenes in both this and the winter soldier mostly weirdly boring. Really long action sequences that are, at most, competent and don't have an enormous and unavoidable impact on the plot just aren't good enough. I really like the characters and I find myself frustrat...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

Really impressed with the changes Epic made to the Fortnite Battle Pass reward system for this season. Did they remove even 20% of the nauseating, insidiously manipulative, overtly weaponized hooks and triggers? Because based on Epic-Tencent's general design attitude since the merger, I would be al...

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

For god knows what reason, Half-life. The original. It hold up surprisingly well. You should play the fan made Remake in Source 2, it's excellent. I tried Black Mesa, and it felt like they were so busy making it bug-for-bug compatible as an experience that they forgot to include any fun. Also, it h...
