    Poll: Let's Talk about D&D!

    I love me some 5e. As an aside, I strongly recommend some of the mechanical bits from Adventures in Middle Earth (sorry if this has been mentioned earlier). Specifically, the Journey rules and how magic items become more powerful the longer a PC owns it and gets more familiar with it. Very...

    Another Batman Animated Movie?! (Batman vs Jack the Ripper)

    This one is based on a "what if" called Gotham by Gaslight which was published over 20 years ago. So they jumped that shark a while ago, if the concept bothers you so much. It was alright: I enjoyed it because it was illustrated by Mike Mignola (of Hellboy fame).

    Any good (opposite of evil) necromancers in fiction?

    Check out Brian Lumley's Necroscope. It taps into the idea of "good" necromancy (respectfully interacting with the dead; helping them settle affairs and they help you) vs. "evil" (forcing the dead to do your will, enslaving and tormenting people with your powers, lusting for power). The...

    Poll: The Aliens Series

    What I liked about Prometheus is that now I view the Queen in Aliens as a one-off, unique monstrosity. I'd rather believe that then the less, well, ALIEN concept of termites or bees that Cameron introduced. That just made too much sense: the xenomorphs were less weird.

    Controversial Tropes vs. Women in Video Games Series Comes to an End

    Sorry thread: my angry comment was in response to a post that either no longer exists, or I quoted the wrong person. I was reacting to someone who said something along the lines of "I hate casual geeks and I want my hobby back as a boys only club". I'm fine with Anita's series. I just fucked...

    Controversial Tropes vs. Women in Video Games Series Comes to an End

    It's opinions like this that make me not ever want to identify as a "gamer". What petulant bitterness.

    A Serbian Film - Notoriously Disgusting

    Anytime people tell me that they're badass hardcore horror movie fans, I ask them if they've seen "Salo or 120 Days of Sodom", "Martyrs" or "A Serbian Film." Just to more accurately gauge their level of "stamina". I haven't watched any of them end to end and I don't plan to (turned off Salo...

    Blizzard Teases Overwatch Announcement for Next Week

    PvE would get me to play this game 100% more. A Halloween-like event where you have to also move around the map (instead of just protecting the one spot) would be HELLA awesome.

    Temporarily handicapping an overpowered character in a Pathfinder/D&D 3.75 setting

    Perhaps you could just say that the wizard can only cast spells as a lvl10-12 character. That would be much simpler than going through all of the math of removing levels.

    Your age and your thoughts

    Another 35er here. Career that I like, wife that I get along with, 2 hilarious kids. Some regrets but I can't complain, really. Grew up with VHS and cassette tapes and without internet: loving the evolution of technology and feel that those who want to go back to those things are out of their...

    Why aren't you sick of Marvel Movies yet?

    Other then a few of them feeling a bit "meh" (Avengers 2... bleh) they were all fun and/or engaging. Civil War and Logan were extremely memorable for me.

    Best and worst Castlevania games

    HAHHA oh my god YES. Those fucking awful Tiger Electronics games. Always a terrible disappointment.

    Best and worst Castlevania games

    Super Castlevania. Sure it's a step backwards to a more linear format but the graphics, music, mood and excellent controls made it the benchmark for all other games in the series (for me, anyway: Dracula X was prettier but I hated the de-evolution of the controls). I mean, did ANY other...

    Games that Aged INCREDIBLY well

    Seconding Super Metroid for the SNES. The music, polished 16-bit graphics and intuitive controls combined to what I consider to be a perfect game.

    Despite Some Claims, Blizzard Says that Overwatch Loot Box Drop Rates Haven't Changed

    I've been playing really consistently over the past few months (an hour or two about 3 nights a week). For the Rooster event I got several special skins (both of Mei's, Zenyatta, Tracer, Symmetra and Bastion), while during the Halloween and Christmas events I only got 1 in each (Zenyatta and...
