    Your "What were they thinking." Moment while you were playing a game.

    Don’t forget The Last of Us and their “fun” idea of suddenly making you play as Ellie out of nowhere. I spend the whole game learning and using Joel’s strengths and weaknesses and all of that gets thrown away.

    Your video game hot take(s) thread

    It doesn’t help that a lot of atheists, online at least, seem to act like smug, condescending dick-bags towards people who do believe in a higher power. Granted, those could just be the atheist version of religious nutjobs and most atheists might be chill people. But public perception is that...

    Your video game hot take(s) thread

    The remaster of Goldeneye is a mistake. Not because the game is bad, it was awesome and I ( and I assume many others) have very fond memories of playing the absolute shit out of it, but because games have changed so much since the early days of console shooters. The people who played Goldeneye...

    Why she was being pursued is the discrepancy. In the originals her ship was being chased because transmissions containing the Death Star pans were known to have been beamed to the vessel. No mention is made of the ship fleeing a nearby battle, physical data tapes being handed off to a crew...

    Relatively minor things really. Like Yoda not being Obi-Wan’s master for one, why Leia’s ship was being pursued in the opening shot of the first movie, Leia remembering her mother, all of the Jedi, Sith and Inquisitors crowding the galaxy when there were only two Jedi left in the OT. The...

    My problem with the prequel era is that focusing so heavily on it muddies the waters and adds further to the many inconsistencies with the OT. If the prequels and their associated content were to be declared an alternate timeline from the originals and sequels, I’d have less of a problem and it...

    This is a genuine question, not meant as a dig or insult, here. Why are you (singular and as a collective) so fascinated, nearly obsessed, with pre-OT and Old Republic era Star Wars? It seems like everything recent (tv and movies) other than the sequel trilogy has direct ties to those time...

    Movie, TV, Web Series, and Music Hot Take(s).

    In defense of 80's Red Dawn, they were dealing with 80's Russia (before the Soviet Union collapsed) along with Cuban forces. And the rest of the world had gotten pretty fucked up. I think NATO fell apart due to revolutions and civil wars. Also, nukes had been used. I don't remember if they flat...

    A bunch of jackasses who wasted my time by having Tropical Punch Kool-Aid be the main ingredient in a fruit punch recipe. If I wanted something that tasted like Tropical Punch Kool-Aid I would just buy the damn Kool-Aid.

    I felt better after I quit Reddit. Deleted my account and the app a few months ago and haven’t looked back since.

    Staying at home is the norm... What are you reading?

    The theatrical cut hinted at it being closer to weed- with Sauroman saying to Gandalf (paraphrasing a bit) “Your love of the halfling’s leaf seems to have clouded your mind” and Merry’s gentle admonishment to Pippin of “You always smoke too much”. Both have hints towards marijuana usage/effects...

    Do you have a decent sound system (any thing with better than standard tv speakers and a subwoofer)? Because having that makes some scenes so much better. The Batmobile reveal is amazing if you can feel that rumbling in the floor.

    Staying at home is the norm... What are you reading?

    Right now I’m in the later part (I think) of The Two Towers, slightly after the battle of Helm’s Deep, and noticed that movie Treebeard needed more prompting to go ***** slap Sauroman into place and had to be tricked into discovering that Sauroman had razed a lot of the forest. Book Treebeard...

    If the recipe doesn’t jump right into how to cook the damn dish I won’t even bother with it. I will hit the back button and find a different link. And on a related note, anyone that includes any water flavoring or drink mixes (Kool-Aid, Crystal Light, MIO, etc.) in a recipe for fruit punch can...
