Gonna be picking up Homeworld Remastered today. Homeworld is one of my favorite games of all time and just about the only one that manages to do justice to combat in space. Nothing quite like watching your strike craft strafing a battle cruiser through a hail of flack and point defense system fire o...

So I just watched the Great Bodhisattva Pass or the Sword of Doom It can be summed up pretty much as the tale of a cruel and vicious samurai who leaves a trail of death a misery in his wake. Tatsuya Nakadai is simply splendid in the role of Ryunosuke Tsukue, a man who weaves his way through the worl...

But that would be even more of a troll than the EOE ending. It would be the troll of the decade, a monument to all trolls throughout all history, a troll I would remember for my entire life. No matter how depressing it would be there would be some part of me that would have to nod my head in respec...

^Killing everyone off and not bringing them back? That's a bold move and I for one I totally support it. The rage would be simply awe inspiring to behold and so very, very delicious too. :devil:

Better Call Saul I'll be damned if this isn't so much better than I expected. I thought it we'd either get a Breaking Bad lite with cameos galore or some sort to law focused comedy. I was all sorts of wrong. BCS is it's own show right from the start. It's got the right balance b...

Hey, one can always hope (call me delusional if you want). Also, it's the fact that she's basically a half-human hybrid (and that Rei II is still inside Unit 01) that keeps me from calling it completely busted. Plus, how much of her DNA is that of Yui? Course, the next film&...

^ Caring without lust? what madness is this? But seriously it does seem much more probable he'll end up on good terms with Rei, if she survives that is, but not romantic terms. Doubt he'd just suddenly stop giving a damn about her after all the nonsense he went through in 2 for her and in th...

Recently finished up Blindsight by Peter Watts. It's excellent hard as nails scifi and manages to be an extremely thought provoking book where Watts examines consciousness through the lens of first contact with an alien species. Throughout he looks at different forms of consciousness, asks quest...

Sailing my way through Sunless Sea . Really having a blast so far. It's a dark rougelike survival rpg set in the same universe as Fallen London. The writing which is the heart of the game is deliciously dark and playful. Be it the island where everyone wears a mask and must preform the role thei...

I really not have any kind of hope of Anno Making a good job answering crucial points on the Plot of the Rebuild Series. And Sorry but I disagree about "leave some parts to our imagination" in this case, that sounds as an excuse not to demand in better Movie. Given that Final isn't li...

I'd rather like to get just a hint of what happened during the time skip. I mean a lot of stuff had to be going down in the last 14 bloody years and the almost complete end of the world probably churned out at least some interesting events. Not that I'll think we'll many, if any, answers...

Recently saw Inherent Vice. Never read any of Pynchon's works but I reckon I'll have to after this. Found the plot to be confusing at times and I'm guessing that one isn't supposed to be able to follow every last bit but I found myself enjoying it all the same. Doc's drug fueled ...

well it won't be Rei because Rei is going to die because Rei is Rei and that's what Rei does best. So I guess that leaves Asuka, provided she survives. Also this is all assuming Shinji survives so yeah.... Honestly though I'd rather Shinji come to terms with himself and his place in the ...

^ I've heard that playing the forces of Good in this world was extremely difficult since the automatic battle resolution was based on the number of troops, which let the Moria and Mordor factions steamrolling all your allies and leaving you alone against everyone. Was that problem fixed by now?...

Recently finished Litany of the Long Sun. Unfortunately I didn't find I half as engaging as Book of the New Sun. The prose is simpler, the characters less interesting and the lack of ambiguity made the religious subtext rather more direct and less palatable. I'm starting the Children of Huri...
