  1. Assassin's Creed Odyssey: AC goes full MMO design. There's too much procedurally generated in this game. Daily refreshing challenges, quests that are too similar to one another, a map that's simply too big. The mercenary system, where you have mini-bosses tracking you based on your notoriety, walks the line between fun random encounters to groaning as you enter a city to realize there are 5 different mercs coming for you at the same time. The story, which I doubt I'm more than halfway through, is actually really interesting, plus the gameplay is really fun and over-the-top. I love the gea
  2. Really glad Cristin Milioti's been getting some love lately. She was definitely the best part of the last season of HIMYM (though I don't dislike that season as much as most). I even watched that failed romantic sitcom she starred in.
  3. Mortal Kombat (2021) - I'm a big fan of the recent games and this matched the style and tone of those pretty well. I don't think the new guy was really necessary, he could've been any of the existing characters. I find it weird that the movie not made in the 90s is the one that has the blank slate original protagonist, I find that more appropriate for something aimed at all-ages audiences. The changes to the lore tying everyone together bother me a bit, because MK's appeal is how it takes so many disparate genres and melds them together in a fun mish-mash. The length also bothers me, it feels
  4. Never knew him, but I really enjoyed listening to him on the show. RIP.
  5. I think I'd prefer it if it was done as an HBO Max show, if they're going for Space Game of Thrones.
  6. The first and third seasons are the ones I feel are the purest Spidey. The rest get so bogged down in melodramatic character arcs. It's great in comics but not on-screen where he has to stop and angst in real time.
  7. Zack Snyder's Justice League: I don't get what made this supposedly "unwatchable". I watched this in two sittings and it flowed; I'm sure the inevitable 3 hour or less version that would have come out would've been even snappier. While three character introductions is still a bit unwieldy for a team-up movie, I can't think of much material that I would prefer to be gone. Like everyone else said, it had the parts I already enjoyed from the original, and more. I still think Miller's take on Barry is, strange but his arc was convincing enough. Aquaman was the opposite, where I liked him on-s
  8. TV: One of my friends convinced me and another friend to watch Star Trek: The Next Generation and Battlestar Galactica with her, then it expanded to include Star Trek TOS. I never thought I'd be into Star Trek, but about here I am about 200 episodes later (I also added Enterprise to watch by myself). Having Dan and Mike doing a podcast that covers two of those things is a good motivator for that too. Speaking of things Mike and Dan cover, I realized this past month that I missed Doctor Who. Thanks to HBO Max, I rewatched the Capaldi era up to where I stopped, a couple episodes into s10, a
  9. Definitely agree on WW84. I can see why people wouldn't like it on a style level, and some of the political things people have brought up are definitely valid, but I had a blast watching this. The running time barely felt noticeable to me, and I just went with the dream logic of the whole thing. Sure, there's some times I wish they sped it up, but I just went with it. Along with the obvious like Spider-Verse, this felt a lot like a comic to me, though I can't quite describe why.
  10. Imagine paying $12.98 to watch The Alternative Factor. Sickening.
  11. I haven't seen the episode yet but the snippets people are posting of Slott's professional habits are beyond damning. I can't believe he's been working on Marvel's highest profile characters for over a decade now.
  12. Been meaning to listen to that. Related to that, I've been listening to Previously on X-Men, where they alternate between covering a comic, a movie, an episode of the 90s cartoon and a character's history each week. Radioactive Spider-Pod is also a fun show, where they cover the 90s animated series episode by episode with an older and comedic eye. Nice to hear appreciation for a show that I've always loved.
  13. I really enjoyed Drax in the first Guardians, but he got completely insufferable after that. Not a small factor in why I've kinda turned on the MCU Guardians since.
  14. Yeah, you don't have to wait too long for games to get cheap nowadays. The Avengers seems like a perfect "wait until they've worked out the problems" game. That or just watch the cutscenes. In the early parts of Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it's such a big leap into next-gen for Dragon Age, while still retaining a good deal of the core of it. In the big picture, it's not far from Origins in how wide open it is, but fun and vibrant in a way closer to DA2. I'm still not finding my Inquisitor's personality the way I did my Hawke, but I think the roleplaying is pretty good (dear God, some dia
