Re: Hottest Movie Ro20

I've kind of been steadfastedly not voting for Star Wars movies, because as much as I like them, they're genuinely not my favorite films out of their match-ups.

But goddamnit, A New Hope doesn't have fucking Dan Akroyd's ghost beej face, so it finally gets a pass.

Re: Weird Al

Yeah, it's happening like .. five minutes from my apartment. I'm hoping I can get tickets, since it's also a place that does pre-sell to loyalists.

(Also please read the Nathan Rabin entries. It makes me sad every time he talks about how they're the lowest trafficked posts he does.)

Re: CHAT DUMP (and Quotes)

The irony of it always having been that "goddamnit, you HAVE to have played the fucking game up to this level to even pick that fucking class in the first place."

Anyway everyone knows it was really Paladins who were the lowest quality players.

Re: Hottest Movie Ro20

I just re-watched Bill and Ted again the other day. That movie kind of hurts right now with how much better their vision of the future is than what we've gotten to date.

Re: Podcasts where it isn't stand up comedians talking and talking (and talking)

Rob's tried a lot of other variations on Talkin' Toons, trying to get it filmed, or put on various streaming/video services, or just the thing he was doing for a while where you'd only get the first thirty minutes of an interview without donating. I honestly have no idea if this is another one of th...

UHF is one of the funniest movies ever made, and The Thing is another "vying for literally my favorite movie of all times" contenders.

Re: Podcasts where it isn't stand up comedians talking and talking (and talking)

A few weeks back Austin brought up a podcast called Spawn On Me . Its a gaming podcast with a completely minority cast. Just like Waypoint Radio its often politically minded. If you like Waypoint Radio or just want to hear gaming news/opinion from a prospective you don't normally gets its really fu...

I figure I'll go ahead and post literally everything I'm currently subscribed to; I have just barely enough time at work and during my commute to listen that the feed remains manageable, but I never quite manage to actually get to the last one in the order right now (which is, despite my earlier pos...

Re: Hottest Movie Ro40

Pretty much saving my breath on a few of these, since we're into a lot of "eh, I won't be TOO sad if that one goes" options here. That being said, it still feels kinda shitty for me to not vote for Tron here on style alone, but the movie just never did much for me since I saw it pretty late.

The main takeaway here is that Robert Zemeckis was a fucking genius in the 80s.

Re: Play Nier: Automata already

It sounds like the DLC is pretty strictly just bonus combat arenas / goofy bosses and cosmetic items; I considered it, but man, $13 is kind of a lot for that.

Re: Hottest Movie Ro40

Yeah, that's the thing; if I was hard fucking pressed to name a single favorite movie of all time, Roger Rabbit would probably end up taking it. It's close, but the sheer technical expertise on display, the incredible script, and the GOAT performances just push it above anything else I'd consider. W...

So I finally played this! It's as good as everyone says, and hearing and reading about a few of the things that I missed even after 90%+ sidequest completion is just sustaining that sweet, sweet depressive low for even longer. jesus christ i wiped pascal's memory but i didn't go back to the ...

Re: Race: The Final Frontier

If there's a better example of Donald Trump's complete tone-deafness and hubris than picking a fight with the fucking NFL, I haven't seen it. It's pretty amusing to see all the people swearing they're going to boycott the NFL and its sponsors, too. Yeah. Sure you are. Extra amusing because there's ...

I don't know if Life is Strange: Before the Storm needs to exist, and there's a lot of arguments for why it probably shouldn't. But I'm kinda glad it does. It's been pretty well hashed out that Rachel Amber in Life is Strange is that story's Laura Palmer. She's a mcguffin who drives the plot through...

Re: Comic Replacement Game 2000 - Execution Phase

* Mothra drives off of the lot in a monstrosity with each wheel shaped and drawn differently and every window revealing a funhouse mirror horror show of a passenger, uniquely distorted into a thing of neverending nightmares that was once a cohesive vision of humanity.

Re: Hottest Movie Ro40

Despite being a massive weeb in my day, I never saw the Metropolis anime. So of course there can only be fire and blood if it wins over Wonka because only things I've seen can be good.
