With Deadpool 2 looming on the horizon, I’ve been thinking about Deadpool in general lately. Let’s get one thing straight, though: we will not be discussing the abomination that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine. M’kay? Moving on. The Deadpool movie is the kind of movie that I aggressively ignore, right up until I actually watch it. Simple … More Random Friday: Deadpool.
Years ago (actually, more like “decades ago”), friends and acquaintances of mine swarmed over a certain townhouse complex in the ‘burbs. It was cheap, and you got a ton of space for your buck. They were two- and three-bedroom townhomes with basements, so you could easily cram in anywhere from three to eight people, assuming … More Roaches, rage, & Harmonix Music VR
Statik Institute of Retention. Or, “That really messed-up place I woke up in.” Statik is a PSVR puzzle game that’s been out there a while. I’m still trying to cherry-pick my VR experiences, and this one came up at the top of a lot of lists. Statik explains nothing to you at the beginning, and … More Random Friday: Statik, shitholes & marital memory failures.
Lego my brain. I have a lot of Lego games. Which is kind of dumb, because all Lego games are basically the same game with different skins, right? More or less, anyway. Smash everything in sight, collect things, whack on the bad guys, occasionally solve puzzles, frown every time you have to pass something by … More Random Friday: Lego smashing, Thumper, and gaming gear.
When it comes to VR and the possible physical side effects, I apparently rolled double sixes. Or I’m holding a full house. Or… some other words that mean, “I got lucky.” No sweats, no nausea, no balance issues, no problem. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword, because the result is that I grew almost … More Virtual adrenaline
Him: “I keep hearing the cats bumping around, but I can’t figure out what it is. Or where they are. Or what they’re doing. … … See, there it is again!” Me: “… … … You mean the fireworks?” Him: “Uh… oh. Yeah. Maybe that’s it.” Me: “It’s New Year’s Eve.” Him: “I got it, … More New Year’s Eve in the real world. (Ok, my world…)
Some random thoughts about Persona 5. *Light spoilers for a few things in the first bit of the game (all occurring before July, game time), namely: comments about a specific character’s likeability and how another character treats him; a character’s outfit, and detail-free comments about the bits of the protagonist’s past that you learn at … More Random Friday: Stuff about things, & Nick Fury saves the day.
Gaming. You know… in general. When it comes to video games, I’m all over the place. For example… over the last three months, I played all the way through South Park: The Stick of Truth and The Fractured But Whole. Then I was playing Need for Speed: Payback. Then I stopped to play Assassin’s Creed: Origins. … More Game overload, déjà vu, & evil clowns (not that kind).
For me, the best part about Christmas falling on a Monday isn’t “yay, three-day weekend!!!”, it’s, “yay, Xmas Eve isn’t on a weekday!!!” My workplace has a tradition for Christmas Eve. Not a fun tradition, like opening presents or eating lots of pie or throwing mashed potatoes at creepy uncle Joe or setting the turkey … More Holiday boredom & soul-sucking evil.
