    Re: What Are You Watching?

    Just finished watching Dark. Spoilers follow...

    The convolutions in it's presentation of time travel are pretty good and consistent and it rivals that of the 12 Monkeys TV series. However, I think...

    Re: The Last of Us 2

    The whole narrative is a confused mess but I get the feeling that what they were aiming for was "Ellie confronts the consequences of Joel's actions and forgives him/moves on". To a degree it can be...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    I don't feel anymore enlightened. Both Altered Carbon season 2 and SW9 were so easily forgettable to me.




    People still watch shows on an actual television? :p

    @ Sandwich

    I can only vaguely recall who those people are and what they were in. Otherwise, I can't remember anything else about them. Haha!

    Re: How are you handling quarantine?

    That sucks to hear, Blade. It only took a few months for it to turn to shit it seems. Ugh.

    Where I am (Australia), the state I'm living in (Victoria) has seen a huge jump in cases over the past...

    Re: The Last of Us 2

    Even if we disregard the subjective fanboyism, it's a structural problem, too. It's a sequel that fails to continue on from what came before in an efficient manner. Because of the non-linear...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    I found Picard to be worse than Discovery largely because it's supposed to be continuous/comes after what we know of Star Trek up to that point and it's not. Discovery had more leniency like the...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    ^ Well, I'm not sure if Rodenberry wrote absolutely everything about Picard, so he shouldn't shoulder all the blame. Anyhow, Picard is one of the ultra rare introverted heroes one would ever see in...

    Re: Uanime1 Starcraft 2 Review

    I can only speak for myself, but I do it for fun and to share a different point of view.



    I think you're imagining a "pedestal" that people are putting it on, when all they're expressing is...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    I never said it did. Nice strawman you're building though.



    Talking about the subjective feels/what it evokes here. Sc1 has stronger themes and weight than Sc2 does. Much like earlier Trek...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    ^ DS9 is how one would do "dark" ST properly... not the inanity we've got with modern Trek. Have you seen any modern Trek? It's so much like what Sc2 is to Sc1.

    Re: The Last of Us 2

    I think the "gotcha" moments they were going for were the flashbacks providing revelatory context to what was happening in the present. This strategy is designed to build suspense and works well (and...

    Re: The Last of Us 2

    Oh yes, well, like "ambiguous endings", there are good and bad examples of this. Case in point, the first TLOU invokes this quite well, whereas the TLOU2 is wanting.

    One can replace "zombies/zombie" in the above quote with literally anything else and it still won't make it any less than a sweeping generalisation. Try harder, dude.

    Re: The Last of Us 2

    The plotting/narrative structure is definitely part of the issue. Much of the plot points are actually fine, it's just how they're structured/placed. Joel's death is the inciting incident but it's...

    I don't think it's an anti-violence stance they're peddling, just that the death and killing of any enemy aside from the "infected" is supposed to have meaning/consequence. They telegraph this by...

  23. Re: Blizzard posted a summary of the Starcraft plot

    I'll take that as an approval of the idea? The Terrans need to be scaled up big time in order to pose any challenge to the Protoss and Zerg or to "realistically" maintain a three-way for any period...
  24. Re: Blizzard posted a summary of the Starcraft plot

    Just cos we're spitballing here, how about the idea of doing away with K-sector Terrans altogether - just have the UED and the K-sector Terran factions just be a part/faction of the UED? Or, if you...
