  1. Got Dark Souls for the 360. It is painful. And it makes me yearn for Bloodborne, but hey, that's my second favorite game of all time so it's fair.
  2. Enjoyed it. The fight scenes were really good, the characters were fun*, and it provides a good springboard for the DCEU going forward. My cons are that it's nowhere near as bold as it could've been with such huge stakes and characters, the seams between scenes and mandated additions are really visible, and the villain is not that interesting. Overall, it was good but not great. I've said that about all of them (though I'm still a big fan of BVS). They could and should be better, but I still enjoy what we've been getting.
  3. She did a few issues of the Vertigo book Madame Xanadu that were really good. She also drew (and wrote the second volume I believe) Lady Killer for Dark Horse and Supergirl: Being Super. Love her stuff.
  4. Looks competent, but uninspiring. Which, now that I think about it, describes most of the DC animated movies (With rare exceptions such as Under the Red Hood).
  5. The original Mayday Parker Spider-Girl series used second-person narration. It was also incredibly distracting in that book.
  6. I watched the anime adaptation of Gyo and was throughly creeped out. I'm sure the books are even more unsettling because Junji Ito's style had to be toned down for animation.
  7. 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

    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.
  9. 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.
  10. The Vision is so good I'm buying the Director's Cut releases despite having the whole series on Comixology.
  11. A Monster Calls - Just heartwrenching. Loved it.
  12. Can't go wrong with Hannibal Buress. Maybe Eric Andre can be a teacher in the second movie.
  13. 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 somethi
  14. This reminds me of the Kryptonian parts of Supergirl, just given its own show.
  15. 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.
  16. Without any special features it seems, sadly.
  17. 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.
  18. 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 -
  19. Got Prey by Arkane Studios and Bethesda (Bethany Esda), since horror sci-fi is my jam. A couple hours into it, and I'm digging the game. There's some neat twists and turns story-wise, and I'm enjoying how Morgan Yu's character keeps shifting the more you find out about him. The worldbuilding in the game is great, with a great balance of darkness and humor (loved finding that one dude's D&D character sheet). There's so much thought put into where everything fits, it's amazing. The world design is pretty interesting, having a central location that links back to every other place you need is
  20. It took five months due to life and other games getting in the way, but I finally finished the Mass Effect Trilogy. I don't really have any complaints, aside from 1's gameplay being very frustrating. It was an amazing experience to me, and I just loved seeing my FemShep, Liara, Garrus and Tali grow over the course of the story. I don't know how likely I am to replay this any time soon, I'm a little too attached with how it went this time to do so. I got into this series because Andromeda got me interested but considering how all that's worked out, I might just wait until they've worked out ev
  21. Checchetto's one of my favorite current artists. He did the Star Wars: Shattered Empire and Anakin & Obi-Wan series, plus Rucka's run on Punisher and some Avenging Spider-Man during the Superior era. Great artist, glad he's getting so much work.
