  1. I wonder if CBS is taking a "throw everything at the wall and see what sticks" approach here.

    The, you know, whatever device.

    Aliens Infestation - DS - Out Now!

    I did wonder about the welding, and I assume there's no reason to every switch the torch back off?
  4. So, hopefully there will be someone more interesting doing the day to day showrunning? Right?
  5. Yeah, it’s a bit tautological to say that games that are created and sold wholly on extreme content are all bad, if they weren’t bad they’d be marketed on something other than being extreme. There are games that have dabbled in the same extremes in healthy and interesting ways. Same with film, for every garbage fire schlock film there’s something like Hereditary which can apall with purpose.
  6. No you see when someone says something critical that’s censorship, and when people stop that person from speaking that’s protecting free speech.
  7. Ah, that sounds plausible.

    That bastion of originality, Killzone.

    Death Stranding - Kojima at it again

    I think if they’d released Peace Walker as MGS5 as originally planned, a lot more people would’ve played it and the switch to MGSV would’ve been a lot less abrupt. It’s the missing link in a gameplay-centric progression that started with MGS3. Hmm, that’s interesting. From MGS, two game series were born: a brother of story (MGS2, Portabe Ops, MGS4), and a brother of gameplay (MGS3, PW, MGSV).

    I can’t believe I skipped this when it originally came out.

    Beyond Good & Evil 2

    A concise summary of why Ancel's making it and Ubisoft greenlit it. However there's an unanswered (existential?) "why" here: nobody liked BG&E because it was a partial accomplishment of a greater vision, they liked it for the game it actually was. The elephant in the room is that this is a very different game that nobody will necessarily like. There's name recognition amongst anyone who was really in to B-tier thirdparty games in the PS2 generation, but I worry that they're going to convert that in to a sort of anti-brand-recognition amongst that small existing fanbase if it turns out to be something completely different.
  12. Yeah, Kurtzman is the sane one. Although he's also been involved in a lot of bad trash too, he doesn't seem to be a 9/11 truther obsessed with magic blood. I have to imagine that they'll be finding someone else to be the "real" showrunner, surely Kurtzman's a bit above that in the showbiz hierarchy now.

    What are you playing?

    Finally started The Dunwich Legacy, and it's a great improvement on the core Arkham Horror LCG scenarios. The way they've rebalanced the encounter deck away from a constant barrage of enemies means that the game doesn't get bogged down and there's always an interesting and thematic action available.

    Horror is more of an existential thing than anything else IMO. Dread, after the movie. The ending of Cronenberg’s “The Fly”, the, you know, scene in this, the essential concept of The Thing, all stuck with me in a sort of grim fog.
