Re: So I had a little spare time - and I created this ...

Speaking of which ... what kind of creature is Gonzo? Or Scooter? Or (gods help us) Animal? ;) Well, Gonzo has been called a "whatever" (most Muppet movies, such as The Muppet Movie and The Great Muppet Caper ), a "weirdo" ( Muppet Babies , a cartoon from the 1980s), and an alien ( Muppets from Spa...

Yeah, but... what about this? :twisted:

Re: New Dragon Age In The Works.

Well, er -- it's true I don't like shooters (mainly because of my experience with games like Wolfenstein 3D, the first Doom, Team Fortress 2 and so on). Those games made me nauseous because of the constant spinning around to see what was shooting at me. ;) I think I've gotten used to the first-pers...

Your brain has autocorrect?

Re: Ken & Robert share HIGH SCOREs on Netflix.

I meant to write "virtue signaling" but apparently my brain decided it preferred the word "virtual." :roll: And no, it's not "reverse sexism," which is itself a nonsense term. Discrimination against anyone — male or female — based on their sex is by definition sexism. It's the same for racism. There...

Re: Ken & Robert share HIGH SCOREs on Netflix.

Part of my problem is that (with the exception of some personal stories and Gayblade) I knew all of the information in High Score already because I've researched this stuff over the years. In fact, this docuseries left out a LOT of information regarding arcades, consoles, and computers, most of whic...

Re: Ken & Robert share HIGH SCOREs on Netflix.

Maia and I watched the entire six-part docuseries and we were left feeling disappointed. While High Score had some really interesting video clips (particularly the neat retro-style animations) and interviews, nearly the entire doc focused on consoles once again. I realize consoles are important, but...

Re: TV Series

Your Skill In Necromancy increases by 1! Damn straight! :twisted: So if we're including Netflix/Amazon Prime type shows (11 years later... was Netflix even a thing 11 years ago?)... Apparently, Netflix was founded in 1997. Although I remember the commercials that had them mailing DVDs to customers,...

Re: TV Series

So... eleven years later and I'm reviving this thread! :D What've we been watching? Well, we were really impressed by Castlevania , and we're looking forward to the second season of The Boys . In the meantime, we're watching Castle , which has been surprisingly good for a crime procedural comedy/dra...

Re: A completely awesome essay ...

Niven's essay was written in 1971 and part of the problem is it's extremely dated, only having Pre-Crisis information to work with. You'll see people reference something called "the Crisis" and also use the terms "Pre-Crisis" and "Post-Crisis" a lot. In 1985, there was a universe-wide event (in othe...

Re: Ken & Robert share HIGH SCOREs on Netflix.

It'll just be nice to see a game-oriented documentary that actually talks about computer games, as opposed to focusing solely on consoles.

Re: The Tawmis Coloring Book (formerly "Coloring Ka-Zar")

:lol: Oh no! Ancestors of Barney the Purple Dinosaur - even scarier than the real thing. :) Those dinosaurs, though, look closer to pink than purple. Speaking of drawing, yesterday I thought of trying to draw Pinky and the Brain (using just MS Paint). :) I'm no artist, of course, but I thought of t...

Re: The D&D Corner

Wasn't Medusa a gorgon? Wouldn't calling all gorgons by the name of one of them be like calling every vampire a "Dracula"?
