  1. What games are you currently playing?

    Transistor - Pretty art style, fun and innovative combat system, cool sci-fi concepts that bleed over into magic, just enough storytelling, and some of the best music I've ever heard in a game. Can't really find a flaw in it. Everything about this game is right up my alley. Fallout 3 GOTY Edition - Pretty sure I'm a little more than halfway through the main story? Doesn't really matter anyway, I just got lost in sidequest hell, which helped me create my character in my head better than the main plot. And by that I mean she would stand in a radioactive pool for twenty minutes just to help someone find out exactly how radiation affects people, and get a cool perk of regenerating limbs quicker when irradiated. Haven't had any of the Fun Bethesda Glitches(tm) yet, mostly just frustrating ones where my character ends up in a wall without a way to fast travel out since there's enemies I can't reach. Dishonored - About 2/3 done with this game and it's a pretty fun experience. I mean, despite the constant reloading to make sure I don't accidentally kill people or cause too much chaos. Can't wait for 2 especially. Final Fantasy VI - Just past the Floating Continent. This is the first FF game I've ever gotten far in and it's hard for me to imagine me liking another one as much as this.
  2. RIP Len Wein

    I read the Tales of the Batman: Len Wein collection during a holiday a few years ago, and I loved every bit of it. Always wanted to meet him. Sad that I won't get to, now. RIP.
  3. IT

    I agree! All of the movie felt very natural with its humor and drama, which made the horror scenes even more terrifying. There were some rather inventive scares in the movie, images that really stick with you. Good stuff, I'd recommend it.
  4. KONG: KING OF SKULL ISLAND

    Monster movies have had subtext since the beginning. The 1954 Godzilla's political message has been covered to death, but then you have stuff like King Kong vs Godzilla, which was a satire on commercialization, or Godzilla vs the Smog Monster, which tackled pollution. Hell, this isn't even the worst the American army looked in a monster movie, which is probably the 90s Godzilla vs King Ghidorah, where proto-Godzilla killed WW2 soldiers, to the cheers of Japanese forces (To be fair, that one did result in apologies from the studio).
  5. Every comic you've read in 2017

    The Vision is so good I'm buying the Director's Cut releases despite having the whole series on Comixology.
  6. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    A Monster Calls - Just heartwrenching. Loved it.
  7. Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Can't go wrong with Hannibal Buress. Maybe Eric Andre can be a teacher in the second movie.
  8. Spider-Man: Homecoming

  9. Every comic you've read in 2017

    Starstruck - I appreciate its existence as a comedic, feminist, creator-owned sci-fi story (especially with how dude-heavy stuff like 2000 AD is). I dig the worldbuilding that goes on. I like the themes. But man, was this hard to follow. Whenever I feel like I gave a handle on the plot, it shifts scenes into something completely different. Maybe I just need to read it again, and much closer but this initial reading took me a couple of months, on-and-off. As for stuff I loved, I adored just about every single page of artwork. I'm a fan of Kaluta's Madame Xanadu, and this was something a little different but still had a similar feel. Especially with Lee Moyer and Charles Vess doing colors, maaan. The Galactic Girl Guide backups were pretty cute. Those were more enjoyable for me on a first reading. I will say this though, I'm intrigued about the world. I found the audiodrama version on Spotify, so I'm giving that a listen.
  10. Everything Marvel

    This reminds me of the Kryptonian parts of Supergirl, just given its own show.
  11. I can sorta understand it, since the episodes are a well-oiled machine at this point, while the Anthology films are more new territory for them.
  12. The DCAU news thread

    Without any special features it seems, sadly.
  13. Every comic you've read in 2017

    I believe it's a multiverse story?
  14. Every comic you've read in 2017

    Apparently she's done an issue each of Journey Into Mystery and Fearless Defenders. She also did the full interiors (I believe) for the Superior Spider-Man: Inhumanity one-shot. She also painted this Peter Parker cover that is one of my absolute favorites.
  15. Every comic you've read in 2017

    American Vampire Vol. 3 - Continues to be awesome. The guest artists Daniel Zezelj and especially Sean Murphy turn in some gorgeous stuff, in addition to the solid Albuquerque art. Excalibur Visionaries: Warren Ellis Vol. 1 - Mixed on this. First arc with the Soulsword is pretty good. But then Age of Apocalypse happens and the book gets thrown off course. The arc with Kitty Pryde and Pete Wisdom left me very cold. It didn't help having such inconsistent art. I dug Terry Dodson's work, and the others to some degree, but it changed far too much for my tastes. Umbrella Academy: Dallas - Baffling to read but it comes together pretty well in the end. Gabriel Ba's art continues to be my reason to read these.
