  1. This is a copy of his MGS2 essay, "Dreaming in an Empty Room": https://aumaan.org/form1/tus1/features/dreaming1.htm It concludes with this postscript about hanging out with Kojima: It made it into The Guardian's list of recommended examples of New Games Journalism (remember that?): https://www.theguardian.com/technology/gamesblog/2005/mar/03/tenunmissable That prompted a thread here, in which Tim Rogers got mentioned a few times. For example this post:
  2. I didn't copy the result, and now it's not showing it again to let me do it, but I got it in 4:
  3. I don't know what my favourite game is, but I do know that I'm losing it. Whereas you, on the other hand, are losing your mind again. I'm losing my baby, losing my favourite game.
  4. Do you mean Alden Ehrenreich, or Donald Glover? Because I'd class Lando as one of the OG characters. Well, OT, at least.
  5. Remember when Lindsay Ellis tweeted that Raya and the Last Dragon is a perfect illustration of how influential Avatar: The Last Airbender has been on young adult fantasy? If only she'd waited a year to say it about this film instead of that one. She might not have suffered the bad-faith backlash that hounded her off Twitter and YouTube.
  6. I saw a few films in 3D (Coraline, Avatar, Toy Story 3, Gravity, the second Hobbit film (in 48fps), and Dr Strange), and never had an issue wearing 3D glasses over my own. Most of those films were ones where a big part of the marketing was that they were designed with 3D in mind from the start - the exception eat Dr Strange, which I only saw in 3D because there was some technical problem with the 2D showings on opening day. For me the most memorable shot in Avatar for showing off 3D was one where Col. Quaritch is seen through the canopy of the main flying vehicle - I think when the military is on its way to destroy the tree. It was the dirt and reflections on the foreground canopy, combined with the multiple layers of other craft in the background, that made it stand out. I hope that my local cinema shows Avatar 2 in high framerate 3D. When I saw The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in 48fps, it took some getting used to in the more subdued dialogue scenes (e.g. the one near the start where Gandalf leaves the group outside Mirkwood), because it made very slight motions feel like they were speeded up. But otherwise, it was an enjoyably novel sensation, and I'd like to experience it again... and then about once per decade after that!
  7. The secret to having a well-regarded TV series: use the title format "The Good [something]".
  8. For Your Eyes Only is my favourite of Moore's Bond films. Yes, even though it has that Blofeld helicopter opening and the Thatcher phone call at the end! (Which of those villains is worse...?) I like Live and Let Die more than The Spy Who Loved Me too. I realise that those are the predictable choices of someone who, boringly, tends to prefer the ones that at least pretend to be Cold War spy films (From Russia With Love, The Living Daylights) to the ones with lots of gadgets and volcano bases.
