Re: It's getting a little STEAMy in here.

I really love my Deck! I'm not going to re-image it or anything, just using it out of the box. Yeah, definitely not reimaging it. There's a time I would have thought that would be a fun project, but...nah. The drivers? The screen keyboard? This thing is a fucking marvel and the best I could hope to...

Re: Trump Leaving Office Poll (Part 2)

It's reasonable to worry that the DOJ ultimately won't bring charges, or that Trump will delay and delay and eventually get back into office in 2025 and shut the whole thing down. Both of those are entirely possible outcomes and I don't mean to minimize them. It's just that this specific piece of ne...

Re: Trump Leaving Office Poll (Part 2)

DAMN. This'll just get appealed and draw out the whole thing as things get slogged in the appeals process. It's obnoxious, and another pretty clear sign that Cannon's in the tank for Trump and there's more obnoxiousness to come, but it's also not that important in the scheme of things. The DoJ has ...

Re: It's getting a little STEAMy in here.

My Deck arrived yesterday. I haven't had a chance to actually play any games on it yet! But, some initial notes: I put my reservation in on August 11. The shipping estimate at the time was October-December; I figured maybe I'd get it by Christmas. I got my order notification exactly 6 weeks after pu...

Re: Animotion and Car Tunes

I think I probably said this when he died, but: I've seen a lot of bad David Warner movies, but I've never seen a bad David Warner performance. He made good material great, and bad material...well, not good, but at least fun as hell to watch any time he was onscreen.

It's nice that they're refunding people's money, at least. (Not everything -- not subscription fees or stuff bought from non-Google sources -- but still, more than I expected.)

Re: Animotion and Car Tunes

Nathan Rabin has reached "Virtual Freak" in his Freakazoid series.

This episode has what may be my favorite absurdly specific reference in the series: an extended parody of Dactyl Nightmare.

You might be able to get more torque with a right-angle screwdriver. If you can get one with a small enough head.

Well, I don't approve of voter intimidation tactics, but at least they're so stupid that they're targeting a county that's overwhelmingly Republican.

Re: Star Wars

I watched the first episode of Andor. As is often the case with the first episode of a new Star Wars thing, it's got potential but I've got mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I like that they're trying to tell a different kind of story (specifically, noir) in the SW universe; that's what I've...

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn

I think when I'm done I'm probably going to pack it in and play something else -- maybe finish Trials of Mana, or Aria of Sorrow, or maybe go back to one of the other open-world games I quit in the middle of, or... -- but I could see coming back to Horizon Zero Dawn one of these days. Good call on t...

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn

So my reward for defeating the Fireclaw is...I can go fight more Fireclaws. Y'know what, game, nah. Going head-to-head with a Thunderjaw and just shooting it in the face with a flamethrower until it died was satisfying, but it was the kind of satisfaction where you know there's never going to be ano...

Re: Op/Ed Sequences that BLAST ASS

(Other Turtles things from the past few years that I hear are at least pretty-okay include the Last Ronin comic and Shredder's Revenge. I can't personally vouch for either of those as yet but if critical consensus is to be believed you're significantly understating the number of good Turtles things ...

I mean I thought it was clear I was finishing up the last one first. Also, the gap between the end of TMNT '12 and the beginning of Rise was, like, eight months. C'mon now, let's dispense with the "God knows how long"; I know they spaced the 2012 series out so that each season started like...

Re: Op/Ed Sequences that BLAST ASS

Yeah, definitely a similar vibe. They're all kinda doing that same '60s/'70s retro style.
