Star Wars: Battlefront II

I've seen some posts on reddit that plausibly contend that EA's backtracking has all been basically a pre-planned part of their marketing strategy -- a means of maximizing revenue and extracting as much as possible from people who will tolerate the greedier incarnation of the business model, while c...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Why do Europe wizards/witches use brooms but American ones constantly use teleportation? I think the reason broomsticks are more prominent in the Harry Potter series is that Harry and his friends are children throughout most of the films, and you don't learn to teleport until you're a teenager and ...

Energy can be a major limiter early on but after a bit of progression it becomes basically a non-issue. Using most tools consumes energy, but swinging your scythe does not. Eating food restores your energy.

Amazon and WB in talks for LotR series

This doesn't interest me all that much. It could be good, but I'm not sure how much of Tolkien lore really will adapt well for television, especially if they wouldn't just be doing a longer form version of the Lord of the Rings books, which the movies already did a decent job of. I think there are m...

Ah, yeah, I figured that the "1200 subs" bit was a joke but I forgot that Steam even had a livestreaming feature so I figured you might have a channel on Twitch that only your friends ever visit. :)

What's your Twitch channel, Tyler?

And I imagine Stardew Valley should run on any PC built in the last several years. Any modern integrated graphics should be able to allocate at least a gigabyte or two of memory.

Halt and Catch Fire on AMC

I started watching this show as it aired but got frustrated with it around the 4 or 5 episode mark and stopped watching. Some time after the second season aired I'd heard that it improved a lot though so I gave it another shot, and I really enjoyed it. The last few episodes of the series got me more...

Re: Fargo, I suppose that's true. I'm not sure what would fill that vacancy then. Probably Bojack Horseman, or The Expanse.

Mr. Robot (USA)

I am. The second season was a bit uneven and weaker than the first overall (in my opinion) but it was still mostly a pleasure to watch. I appreciated how they depicted the aftermath of the events of season one in a fairly low key and believable way.

The Wire - s01e13 - Sentencing

The parole board will have people like Rhonda and others reminding them that Avon was the kingpin and that a cop was shot while investigating him, so he should have a somewhat rougher time getting out early as compared to someone with a similar rap sheet. Of course with the likes of Avon (and Levy) ...

The Wire - s01e11 - Cleaning Up

Did you catch how at the end of the last episode Wallace and Poot were on the wire arranging Wallace's return to Baltimore? Prez didn't either -- in fact he marked the call non-pertinent, repeating the very first mistake he made and was lectured on when the wire first went live. Prez has learned som...

The Wire - s01e11 - The Hunt

Santangelo, yeah, and he was a pretty half-hearted snitch at that. McNulty complained at one point about how Santy was always in the wind and he'd cover for him with Daniels... Santy was likely deliberately avoiding McNulty so he wouldn't have anything to give to Rawls. On the other hand, slipping t...

Small correction, it wasn't McNulty who called Cheryl Kima's "roommate," it was Daniels. (After Carver referred to her as "Kima's girl.") Also, my read on that earlier scene where McNulty shows up at Kima's apartment wasn't that he was looking to get laid, at least not primarily....

Nintendo Switch

I have no plans on getting the Switch either. At this point I pretty much resent Nintendo as a company. They make some great games, but their games would be even better if they were released for the PS4 or PC. I got Breath of the Wild for the Wii U and the frame drops are just atrocious, and my unde...
