    Good Bad Flicks: Exploring The Last Dragon

    Oh nice. A good review of what seems like a fun movie that I hadn't heard of, and no real spoilers. Gotta find and watch this movie somehow.

    Good Bad Flicks: Exploring Demolition Man

    Filmed on an unfinished highway? Was this the same unfinished highway they filmed Speed on? The dates roughly match and they're both in LA.

    SMITE Lore: Who is Hercules?

    There was also that 90s TV show, which was fun.

    Games that have a lot of towns and cities in them?

    The Secret World does have a number of locations, the hub worlds are sections of New York (Brooklyn specifically), London and Seoul (obviously very different from one another), and the first location you visit is a really awesome implementation of a Maine fishing village with streets, fire...

    Indie Studio "Devastated" After Fake Pledge Derails Kickstarter Campaign

    Now I'm going to point out how several projects on that list never fully fulfilled their promises.

    Game Theory: Yes, PewDiePie. YouTube Is Broken

    Oh, I recognised the Shinobi music, nice!

    Will Half-Life 3 Outlive Public Interest Because of Development Time?

    I do think there's new ground to break in shooters. For instance, consequences. In a HL2 demo video, you could knock something over during a "cutscene"-esque part and Kleiner would stop what he was doing and say "careful with that Gordon". Half Life has a rich cast of characters, and in the...

    5 Movies with Female Leads that Make Guys Cry

    One of my favourite action movies ever is Long Kiss Goodnight. Pity it's not on that list.

    #003: The Level Aquatic

    "The marks on your head look like stars in the sk-" Hey wait a minute, the marks on Ecco's head aren't in the shape of the Delphinus [] constellation. Okay, I know it sounds a bit nit-picky, but that's a key part of Ecco's character design, having marks in...

    Unskippable: Assassin's Creed Unity - Who Are the Bad Guys Again?

    Zerragonoss, nice, but there's also: Do you get my point? I'm backing you up to the hilt. Allow me to make a cutting remark. Don't worry, you're getting your cut. If you're bored, I thought I'd give you something with an edge. Knowing I could take you like this was pretty sharp...

    #002 - Reunion

    Definitely going for that early 90s "cool" platformer character vibe. But to be honest, Sonic isn't the only one that fits the style. We've got Cool Spot, Puggsy (especially when you've got both the shades and white sneakers powerup at the same time), ToeJam & Earl (though with a more hip-hop...

    8 Bit Philosophy: Does Christianity Make Us Weak? (Nietzsche)

    My experience of Christianity has always been about compassion, empthy, understanding where the other person is coming from, and largely, not being a jerk. Trying to do the right thing even when it's hard to do. Maybe it's because I'm Irish and this video is clearly influenced by American...

    Escapist Podcast: 172: Why Did the Dress Make Bigger Headlines than Nimoy or Net Neutrality?

    I haven't listened to the podcast, but I want to say based on the title: Here in Ireland, Nimoy's photo was on the front page of a newspaper, mentioning his death. The Dress wasn't mentioned anywhere.

    Escape to the Movies: Kingsman: The Secret Service - Can Lightning Strike Again?

    My take is slightly different. It's not that people were "doing more" which is a fine goal in and of itself, it's that many became completely intolerant of any opposing viewpoints, and wrote off anyone who criticised them, whether they were fair or not.

    Zero Punctuation: Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell

    Damn, that's actually an important detail for getting wrong, thank you for giving the correction. Steelport is something I really disliked about SR3 (bland, badly designed, repetitive, ugh, I could write a lot more if I wasn't writing a simple forum reply), and made me hesitant about buying...
