Re: Whatcha playing?

Get the expansion, it's definitely worth it.

Re: The MOVIE Thread

Twin Peaks is pretty funny too. It's not dark and weird the whole time.

Re: Whatcha playing?

I've been playing a hell of a lot of XCOM recently. I picked up XCOM 2 when it went on sale along with its expansion War of the Chosen. I just finished it and it was great. I recommend both it and the original highly. Then I picked up the old DOS version and beat it, and have been playing through it...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

The original is good, you definitely have to start there. The new season expects you to remember *everything.* Make sure to also watch Fire Walk With Me after you're done with the original. It's relevant too. The whole series is kind of a trainwreck, so the new season isn't unique in that sense. But...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

I really didn't like how the new season of Twin Peaks ended. The last two or three episodes were wack. It's good up until that though. Have you seen the original?

Re: Gamercast of Thrones

It's sort of schlock now, but it's definitely very entertaining so I like watching it. It's probably past "forgivable" at this point, but I wouldn't call it bad but any means. But, like you said, it feels very anti climactic. I wouldn't call the show predictable at this point, but not much of it fee...

Re: Darkwood

Whoa, the devs put it on pirate Bay? Crazy.

I'll look into it, I wanted to stock up on horror games for October. Does it have an interesting story?

Re: Gamercast of Thrones

I stay away from leaks and spoilers, I don't even like to see trailers or screen caps. I either want it completely spoiled, or I want to know nothing. Those are the two best ways to watch something you haven't seen, imo. There's been a noticeable dropoff in quality, to be sure. We now know, without ...

Re: Gamercast of Thrones

I'm really starting to agree with you ydte about the "teleporting" thing. The logistical structure of the story has evaporated. Things only happen now for thematic reasons, rather than physical ones. It doesn't make the story less interesting or compelling, but it's gone from "cute plot holes" to "g...

Re: Burnfire on CNN

I watched a video on Vice today and it was just...crippling. Hearing these Nazis rant about "Communist Jews" and "Criminal Niggers" running their local government, in fucking South Carolina no less. Then unironically supporting Confederate traitors as American heroes, a literal contradiction in term...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

I don't watch many movies either. Plenty of good ones but too many eh ones. And I rarely find others have seen them ad well. I find I watch a lot more TV instead. There's at least a good chance there that someone is watching it too.

Re: Gamercast of Thrones

Agreed. Despite what I said, I do think they could do a lot better. It's just clearly not what they're good at. That being said, I do think the attack on the wall and the assault on the port by the walkers were legitimately great. Some of the fights near the three eyed Raven were good too. Battle of...

Re: Gamercast of Thrones

My sense of the conflict, as far as I understand how Martin wanted to write this story, is that the earlier parts establish what kind of characters we're dealing with, but it's left to you to decide who you root for. Nobody is really the protagonist, with the possible exception of Jon Snow. Everybod...

Re: Gamercast of Thrones

I think after seeing Dragonfire, switching sides is out for Jamie. No matter how bad it gets, he'll remember that battle. It's just not the kind of thing you can ignore, it's too personal. There's a heavy degree of entertaining spectacle in earlier fights, but they're fucking preposterous otherwise....
