    The Wheel of Time

    Easily. She doesn't even appear at all in about half the books. Hell, in the show Surely that means she'll have a much less important role in the show. Unless she'll take the place Leane holds in the books and they basically eliminate that character.

    Discuss and Rate the Last Thing You Watched (non-movies)

    Just watched the first season of the revived "Leverage: Redemption." Interesting. It does catch the flavor of the original series. I'm not sure why they killed off the main character off-screen while writing in reasons why some other actors couldn't come back. I'm guessing they either...

    Funny events in anti-woke world

    Yeah, not literally irony... but irony right? My only worry, the last time a television host snake-oil shill got into politics... America made him President.

    Funny events in anti-woke world

    Har. Hardly surprising though, Danish isn't particularly bright. Is he at least taking it with some grace... or is he trying to claim someone hacked him or some other lame excuse?

    Funny events in anti-woke world

    Funny stuff locally here. 3 new school board members were supposed to be sworn in at a meeting in the area last night. Out-of-state dark pac money paid for their campaigns running on the anti-CRT and anti-science platforms. But they weren't sworn in... they refused to wear masks to the...

    What Game would you forget?

    Yeah, I'll second Obra Dinn, a great game with almost no replay value. Also Now, I haven't played Tales of the Borderlands... I don't particularly care about Borderlands or its story (despite how much Borderlands and 2 I've logged playing with pals) but the replayability thing is true of any...

    SPORTS BALL!!! v2.0

    Wow, this keeps getting weirder and weirder. I don't think there is a "good guy" or "right side" in this story.

    Two time capsules discovered underneath removed Confederate time capsules

    Kind of telling actually. 1865, Civil War ends. Did they put up that statue to Lee then... no. 1870 Lee dies. Did they put up the statue then... no. 1887, very early in the Jim Crow era as southern whites were passing laws and committing terrorist acts to threaten and intimidate blacks to...

    Konami's Memorial NFTs auction

    I actually still have a copy of Nintendo Power magazine where one of those images is a fold out (or just 2 page, I forget which) Castlevania map. Its probably older than the "image" they are "selling" in an NFT.

    What are you currently playing?

    Actually it was any of the "angelic" characters in Dogma. The hoodie was a kind of visual signifier denoting the wings that character ostensibly was hiding. And I have Alan Wake on PC, I think the original rather than the remaster... unless like the bioshock or other remakes it updated for pc...

    What are you currently playing?

    I need to get back to Alan Wake. I played through the first couple of chapters a few years ago and then for whatever reason got sidetracked and never got back to it. As far as the hoodie look... The first time I remember seeing that look was in Kevin Smith's 1999 film Dogma. It was a hoodie...

    The [single player] game the sticks in your head and keeps drawing you back in

    Yeah it happens a lot with various random games. The whole Fallout series, I'm replaying NV right now. Every once in a while I'll dust off the SNES or N64 or Gamecube and retrogame. Zelda or Fire Emblem every other year or so. I'll go back to Stardew Valley or My Time at Portia every now and...

    Your video game hot take(s) thread

    Wow, bad video choice to make a point. That guy needs to junction something better to his magic. He's only getting 3-7 per draw... on pathetic early game spells. No wonder it took him nearly 10 minutes to draw to full. It takes 5 or less when you junction up your magic stats and basically...

    Your video game hot take(s) thread

    You mean spending 5 minutes drawing up to 100 for each new enemy, then never having to ever stop to fight that type of enemy again... thus neatly eliminating the hours and hours of grind for the thousands of random encounters you have to do leveling up materia in 7. Then yes. Kidding of...

    Choo choo! All aboard the Complain Train!

    So, suspiciously at near midnight on New Years Eve/Day, the heat in my apartment stopped working. I put in a work order for maintenance to fix the problem, but it is a weekend and a holiday so I'm still waiting for a fix. Now it isn't end of the world cold. Outside it has been anywhere from 5...
