    What I'm Playing: Atari Flashback X Deluxe

    AT Games Atari Flashback X Modern videogames suck. Let's go back to the '70s & '80s forever! Ordered this for my birthday last month, I got screwed (but not charged) by a phony 'zon seller, then reordered. When it got here I discovered it doesn't have an HDMI cable in the box(!!! Some choice language … Continue reading "What I'm Playing: Atari Flashback X Deluxe"Read More »
  • Wizards Address the Orc Problem

    Wizards Address the Orc Problem

    Wizards of the Coast: Diversity and Dungeons & Dragons See also my recent post: The Thing About Orcs Nice to see this directly addressed. Obviously I still prefer my solution which was just to replace Orcs with a more sympathetic species, but WotC is a business with tight margins so they'll just do the minimum … Continue reading "Wizards Address the Orc Problem"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Doom Patrol

    What I'm Watching: Doom Patrol

    So back in 1989, Grant Morrison took over Doom Patrol, which had been around in various forms since 1963, the original genius in a wheelchair, deranged freak "students", fighting weird enemies and society, months before the X-Men. Except instead of having white kids (and later token Storm & Jubilee) stand in for racism with a … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Doom Patrol"Read More »
  • What I'm Playing: Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe (Saga RS)

    What I'm Playing: Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe (Saga RS)

    SaGa official site Yet another gachapon game based on a classic GameBoy and later Square Enix franchise (SaGa Frontier, etc). To a large extent, this is as basic, standard, zero innovation of a gacha phone game as I've ever seen. The characters are very pretty, there's some great character art, and then it goes into … Continue reading "What I'm Playing: Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe (Saga RS)"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Adventure Time: Distant Lands: BMO

    What I'm Watching: Adventure Time: Distant Lands: BMO

    Available on the HoboMax. BMO, especially delusional BMO being a hero, is generally my favorite character of AT, even tho I skip all those awful Grables eps. So I was looking forward to this. Not happy about the result. No way to talk about this without spoilers: BMO and their potatoes are going to Mars. … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Adventure Time: Distant Lands: BMO"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Adventure Time

    What I'm Watching: Adventure Time

    HoboMax has Adventure Time, and soon to have some spinoff specials "Distant Lands", so I watched seasons 8-10 which I hadn't previously seen, and I'm now rewatching 6-7 which I apparently don't remember at all. Who needs linear time? Season 8: Mostly episodic, often great adventure episodes. This is what I liked the show for … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Adventure Time"Read More »

    WWDC 2020 Liveblogging

    As posted on appdot.net: Apparently I'm watching all of WWDC on my phone, because it's the only current OS version device in my house, and of course a course table and video player only works with the absolute latest updates! F'shaw, like last year's OS could handle a scrolling table?! Or video streams?! Brings up … Continue reading "WWDC 2020 Liveblogging"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster

    What I'm Watching: Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster

    Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964): Both UFO cultists and cops agree, heat wave in winter and meteor showers are weird. A cop is assigned to bodyguard a princess from a small island under civil war. Said princess is contacted by an alien voice and told to jump from the plane, and she never even got … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster"Read More »
  • Flash End of Life

    Flash End of Life

    Adobe EOLs Flash On the one hand, I'm glad Adobe took my advice from a decade ago to stop Flash, because it's just a virus loader, produces the shittiest software possible, and is the anti-WWW. Their marketing zealots calling everyone else "whiners" because of their flaws has gone from eyeroll to falling on the floor … Continue reading "Flash End of Life"Read More »
