Who can guess what game this is from the screenshot?

I thought it would be Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, but I can't remember if that were sponsored by Coke or Pepsi.

Black Panther (with some spoilers)

I really don't want to overhype it, because the Disney/Marvel hype machine is strong enough on its own, but the more I think about it, the more I really, really love this film. It's definitely got layers to it, which is exactly what I want from a superhero story. Marvel has made good, fun superhero

What is your favourite video game where you can play as a Gorilla and why?
Video Game News & Discussions

I think you mean all gorillas are squares, but not all squares are gorillas.

I think gorillas are nerds, by the way.

Black Panther (with some spoilers)
Entertainment & Music

I'm pretty hesitant to take anyone seriously when they say the latest Marvel movie is the best Marvel movie yet and it totally changes the superhero game, because they literally say that every time. And while I have genuinely enjoyed every Marvel movie except Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark Thor, they

A question about school shootings.
World & Politics

A better solution is to arm teachers or in the case of churches / movie theaters allow concealed carry.


Yes, because we all know that what would make an already confusing situation better is more people in a dark theater shooting off guns, while law enforcement tries to show up an

Just been to New York
World & Politics

The New Yorker reputation is really strange. A lot is made about how rude they are, and it's a strange thing that New Yorkers themselves oddly take pride in, but it's just like any other city. Most people are fine, some people are rude, some people are unbelievably nice. It's a loooot of people, man

"Why They Listen to Jordan Peterson"
World & Politics

I genuinely have no idea who Jordan Peterson is... I don't have much to say about that, but for the sake of some form of discussion:

It shouldn't be surprising to anyone that western society is moving in more and more of a conservative, traditionalist direction.


See, I find this

Let's Talk RPGs - I'm Making a Game
Video Game News & Discussions

Can I ask: did you know much about coding or the tech side of game-making prior to using Game Maker? I'm always curious how accessible those are for someone without any real know-how.

What are some shows that make you feel... better?
Entertainment & Music

Right. I found Arrested Development to be cringe-worthy in a lot of ways, too. (Like all of Season 3 with Charlize Theron. And the entire George Michael/Maeby storyline.)

Well this happened.
Jedi Sith / Star Wars

TLJ still earned them a lot of money and Episode 9 will continue to earn them a lot of money, so I don't really believe they are that bothered about a small segment of Star Wars fans who don't like the new stuff.


Pretty much. Also, *every* new Star Wars film sees a segment of its

Collecting Video Games
Video Game News & Discussions

I enjoy collecting games, movies, and comics, but I hardly have a collection worth noting. I collect things I want to play, watch, or read. Never been into the "keep the toy in the box" kind of guy.

Which is fine. None of the stuff I've purchased is in any capacity financially valuable.

Entertainment & Music

I mean, to be a little fair regarding the take that Arrested Development could stress someone out: it is a lot of uncomfortable plot threads. Like, the *entire* season 3 plot with Mr. F and realizing that he's dating someone with mental disabilities and seeing that train speeding over the cliff is k

What Are You Playing? Winter Edition
Video Game News & Discussions

I know I said I generally had no interest in mobile gaming, and mocked Nintendo for their "big news" that the Switch will be getting Dark Souls (although to be fair, I do think it's funny when the news is a console will get a game that's 5-7 years old). But the more I think about it, the more I thin

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Community are usually my two go-tos.

But undoubtedly the show that has given me the most joy for so many reasons (that I can't guarantee will apply to you) is Lady Dynamite.

The Cloverfield Paradox (review so kind of long)
Entertainment & Music

TL;DR version:


If you told me that this film was only made a "Cloverfield" film after its initial shoot, I wouldn't be at all surprised. It wants to be Event Horizon without being anywhere near as visually scary (it's visuals are usually stupid here, actually). It also wants to be Sunshine with

The Cloverfield Paradox (review so kind of long)

Did you feel like Event Horizon was a little too scary and didn't spend enough time explaining another completely separate movie? Did you find Sunshine could have been better with less compelling characters and a more poorly defined inter-character dynamic, in addition to providing unnecessary exp

Ant man 2 trailer
Entertainment & Music

I especially feel like as superhero movies get a little more serious and as Marvel especially prepares for Infinity War, it will definitely be nice to get something a bit lighter and that stands more or less on its own.

My essay will just wind up on my dumb blog. I can't entirely figure out what prompted this essay in particular. I have a lot of conflicting, complicated feelings about the porn industry, and the advent of free internet porn has only made that more muddled. I usually write things to try and sort out

I'm working on a long-form critical essay about pornography, which is surely going to raise some eyebrows, but man research has been fascinating, enlightening, depressing, dark, and funny all at once. It's really taken on a whole new life from when I thought I'd be done with it in a week.
