  1. I read that when the show was announced, as I recall. Liked it until the last 15 or so pages. Was so annoyed by the way it ended I never read any of the rest.
  2. I spent a lot of hours under big radio-style headphones listening to that record. Just layers and layers of music. He also was still doing stuff for NASA launches, has a couple albums about the Rosetta satellite and such.
  3. Finally starting to read Octavia Butler's Xenogenesis trilogy. Yes, I am way behind.
  4. I had chipped in on Saladin Ahmed's kickstarter for his Dracula comic, and the hardcover came in the mail a couple days ago. I'm about halfway through it. It's not bad, there's just really not much new or interesting in the story yet, and it's a bit short.
  5. Honestly, not bad at all. Right now my local library only has the first collection available through Hoopla, so I'll keep my eye out for more. I love that they went and got someone who writes novels for a living to do a very good write-up of the alternate history leading up to this (somewhat redacted for future plot spoilers).
  6. As someone who loves alt history stuff (I enjoyed most of the Lord Baltimore comic series), I've started in on the collected Arrowsmith comics. Not too bad so far, we're getting hints that this is more than what people think, and that War is Hell No Matter the Universe.
  7. The hits just keep coming from Blizzard/Activision: This one is by a pension group that owns stock, and the best line of them all is this one *insert popcorn.gif here*
  8. Read Saga #58, and I think I'm done with the series until they decide what they actually want to do with it now. Something's been lost over the last couple of years, it's just not as good.
  9. (if this is too political, I will delete) So, this just happened.
  10. I would LOVE to see a list of those titles.
  11. It's addressed first in the Clone Wars cartoon, where it's explained how their lifespans are much shorter than a usual human. Like, by the end of the series you're already seeing old clones. I don't remember if there was a canon length, but it's definitely less than 50 years, probably closer to the 35 - 40 range. In Rebels, we meet Wolffe, Rex, and someone who's name I'm forgetting again and they are definitely outliers.
  12. This has been long coming, when you look back. Dragon Age 4 QA devs unionizing over shit pay and COVID safety issues.
  13. It's not a done deal yet. It's very likely, but it's not sold as of right this minute.
  14. Why not? At this point, the Flash movie is nuclear waste level toxic, what would it cost to add five minutes of run time to the Batgirl movie to explain why he's there?
  15. I've got Ruins of Myth Drannor right here, and still occasionally think about seeing if Windows 10 can run it without some serious wizardry. Good stuff.
  16. Read the first collection of Undiscovered Country (issues 1 - 6). It has some interesting things, but good lord these writer dudes love ultra violence and don't seem to get there wouldn't be a population at all if that's how it worked all the time. There's also a timeline at the back of the book that should've been in the front. I'm debating on if I want to bother with the second collection.
  17. This has been a shitshow from start to finish. I'm waiting for some local reporter/journalist to really dig into it because this was absolutely cursed from the get-go.
  18. Another new Star Wars game is supposedly on the way
  19. FF14 is on 24 hour maintenance, and I've burned myself out a little bit on it lately (I really shouldn't have zerg rushed Endwalker 3 times in 4 weeks), so fired up Steam this weekend and played Titan Quest for the hell of it. Still good, altho a bit buggier than I remember, and the first act is definitely still too long, but that feeling when you get an amazing rare drop and start wrecking shit cannot be beat.
