Re: The Brink Ep2

I'm still finding it amusing

Yeah, but it takes a special writing team to pull off political comedies and I'm not sure they have it. I'll stick with it but I'd really like a good laugh out loud moment. Something to give me [more]

Re: Elite Dangerous

MMO is a bit of a stretch. Space is really bloody big. I think only in one system did a see some players. The rest has been AI. Maybe when you get into the core and disputed worlds it is more MMO but certainly this is an online single player game [more]

Elite Dangerous

So, I picked this up at the Steam Summer sale. I've been wanting to play something like this for a while. I tried replaying the X-Wing/Tie Fighter series but didn't last long. Those games were damn hard and require more time than I have now for [more]

Ballers & The Brink

Two completely different shows HBO is trying out.

Ballers is about an ex NFL player who's now a face guy for a money manager. Could be an interesting premise, though you can see where it's going initially.

The Brink has a funny cast [more]

Re: GoT 6/14/15

It's inconceivable to me that Jon didn't warg into Ghost and will find his way back to a human body eventually. Doesn't have to be the same actor.

I wonder if Melisandre could do the fire-breathing resurrection of Beric Dondarion to

Re: GoT 6/14/15

Given how deliberate - and consistent - that clothing choice has been throughout the entire series (if I remember aright), I wouldn't be too confident that Melisandre's at the top of her Lord of Light game right now.

That's a [more]

Re: Star Wars: Knights of the Fallen Empire

Now if this was a trailer for a single player game

It isn't? Granted I did ZERO reading about it, just watched the video, but the video makes it LOOK like a stand-alone product.

Simon, who's been wrong before...

There has been a lot of speculation on the internets that Melisandre will bring him back.

Right, I forgot she could do that. I hope she [more]

Steam Refund Policy

Wow, bought Legend of Grimrock 2 yesterday for $13.50 and today it's $6.75. A couple of clicks later and my refund for the difference is submitted. Based on the ease it was done and the recent announcement I expect to get my money back.

So [more]

Steam Summer Sale

....comes with some weird "game" that just involves clicking. Not only is this a waste of time and energy but it's absolutely killing the Steam servers. Very hard to accomplish anything on Steam now. I hope it doesn't kick you off online [more]

Re: GoT 6/7/15

How did Shireen keep from speading it to others?

My understanding was she was cured. She mentioned it this season or last. Must have been this season with the Onion Knight.

Re: GoT 6/7/15

Yeah, we were backing Stannis cause he was the best of a bad bunch. Not any more.

Worst scene of the show for me.

The Bard's Tale IV

inXile have started the Kickstarter campaign for BT4 today and are already at $345k of the $1.25M they seek! Lots of opportunity RIGHT NOW to get the game (in two years) for $20. Don't expect that to last at this rate.

Re: GoT S5 E8

IMO it is safe to say that the best scene in any of the episodes is between Tyrion and whoever. He's a great actor cast in a great part.

I thought it was nice to see what Arya and Jacun are all about finally.
