Re: CCBC - Shadow of the Colossus (Boss Fight Books)

I'm about a quarter of the way through the book. The overly descriptive style is interesting, wasn't really expecting that. When it started out like that talking about Ico, I didn't think the style would work for me. But I also really dislike Ico so hearing it rehashed in such detail didn't bring up...

Re: Media Mavens Ep. 49 - You're Not the Boss of Me

Great episode! I would also play a Dragon Age dating sim. The romance lines were pretty fun to pursue - I strung along two people and then when I had to finally choose between them, there is a pretty awkward cut scene with the one who gets left behind. It's really hard to be romantic with two peopl...

It was great to hear Diego on the podcast and I enjoyed the talk of AA games.

Re: Media Mavens Ep. 49 - You're Not the Boss of Me

Enjoyed the episode Mavens! Thanks for all the great Korean food suggestions, Riley. Soups with poached eggs sounds delicious, I might give that a shot. Nice to see adults reading YA books - it's definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. One of my friends is a middle school librarian and he usually giv...

Re: Masters of Unlocking Ep. 14 - Which Game Publisher SHOULD Microsoft Acquire?

I really enjoyed this episode. Two things in particular. I liked the talk about what we find nostalgic. There's definitely a thought among many older people that "kids today will just never understand..." or thinking that the way they grew up and the things they liked are somehow subjectively better...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

I love the new entries in the main series and thought Rogue One was just okay. It had some good parts but the beginning was poorly paced.

I love me some Han Solo but I’m not too sure about this. I also don’t really buy this new actor as Han. He seems to lack Harrison Ford’s looks and charisma.

Re: NieR: Automata

Well, I went back again and started the third playthrough... I tried so hard to like this game. Probably too hard. The game gave me so many signs I'd end up very angry with it but I just didn't heed them. I love robots and questions about humanity - I kept trying to convince myself the annoying game...
