I suspect that I’ll keep re-boosting that every week until the season finale. It’s certainly warranted this week.

Bubblegum Crisis (1987) wants us to believe in a future where video calls are the norm, but during those calls you still have to hold a corded phone headset to your face so that you can hear and be heard.

If you'd told me, when I registered for my free trial of , that I'd like the show about sports more than the show about video games, I would have said you don't know me at all.

And I would have been wrong. Mythic Quest is fine, but Ted Lasso is something really special. I don't believe in its basic philosophy--that one genuinely good and kind person can transform all of the assholes around them--but I kind of wish I did.

Is...is Rise of the Tomb Raider actually trying to address the inherently colonialist nature of the premise of the series?

I mean, it's not doing a particularly good job of it, but I'm kind of amazed that it's even trying.

Game recommendation:

“Zombie Rollerz” is a roguelike zombie-fighting pinball game with some tower defense elements. If you hear that and say, “throw in some pixel art and you’ve got every indie game released in the last year”, well, you’re not wrong, but it’s a lot of fun.

Nonary Games, request for gameplay spoilers 

I’m new to this whole genre.

I got the three “basic” endings to 999 in a single play through, by using the forking map thing. But from what I’m reading online, if I want the other three, I’ll have to replay the game nearly three full times—I can’t shortcut it. Is that accurate? If so, I’m saying “screw it” and watching the other endings online somewhere.

Wonder Woman 1984 spoilers 

And the frustrating thing is, I adored the first Wonder Woman movie. But this is just boring.

Wonder Woman 1984 spoilers 

The frustrating thing is, there’s a core of a really good idea here. The villain can make any wish come true, but only one wish per person, so he tries to bend their wishes so that they’ll benefit him rather than them.

I just want that idea in a movie that doesn’t suck.

Very vague Fallen London "Heart's Desire" spoilers 

No-one messes with my monkey. I had to expend some pretty valuable resources to defend him from Hell's accusations, but no-one messes with my monkey.

Recently found out that lemons are a hybrid between citron and sour orange, and aren't found in the wild. Turns out that life never gave us lemons, we invented them.

Why do the clones have New Zealand accents? It’s perfectly reasonable for Jango to have one, but accents aren’t genetic, and the clones were raised by Kaminans. Shouldn’t they have Kaninan accents?

I kind of want to make an indie horror movie where the killer is some kind of supernatural character called “The Tallyman”. I know nothing about the movie except that the protagonist, right at the moment where they’re beating the villain, says, “Hey, Tallyman, tally *these* bananas!”

"I sit in my cubicle, here on the motherworld. When I die, they will put my body in a box and dispose of it in the cold ground. And in the million ages to come, I will never breathe, or laugh, or twitch again. So won't you run and play with me here among the teeming mass of humanity? The universe has spared us this moment."

-Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri

Just watched the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special, and how are the Star Wars folks so much better at making supplemental materials than they are at making actual movies?

The witch leaned over the edge of the deep wishing well, though there was no wish in her heart.

She stared blankly into the inky void, mind fogged and soul drained. As she inhaled the cool, wet air, trying to make sense of everything, the void meeped up at her.

She blinked, drawing up the bucket with haste and scooped the surprisingly dry black kitten into her arms.

"Hello, my little Void," she whispered.

The Void purred back.

If you’d asked me this morning to predict what was going to make me cry today, I would not have guessed “documentary about a 1970s Japanese TV show based loosely on Spider-Man.”
