  1. If I could return to a baseball analogy, though one of a fan, the SF Giants have sold themselves on their manager's loyalty and on interesting, friendly personalities. And they've won 3 out of the last 5 world series. I'm not necessarily saying that it's the only way or the best way to win, but it sure as hell makes it fun to follow. I guess as E-Sports get bigger, we'll just end up with more examples of different ways to run a team, and I'll keep rooting for the Bruce Bochy's and Hunter Pences.

    Yeah, it seems like it's playing on a power fantasy that combines "I could kick your ass" with "I'm more popular than you", which I would assume is the opposite of what a awkward teenage girl wants to hear. I suppose from Taylor's perspective it could be more along the lines with "If you don't backstab, you could have all these friends, too", which is also sort of an odd message.

    My read on it is that they were trying, but didn't have the best action director or time to do the training required to make it look realistic. I just watched the boxing part again, and it looked to me like the women didn't know how to throw a punch, so they tried to do some stylized slow motion stuff to hide it. There's definitely something off about the whole thing, though.

    Hey Sean, why are you upset with Taylor Swift?

    That was a cruel joke, Chris! I wanted to hear that story.
  6. Can I get an invite to the guild? I'm about 25 games in, so I'm pretty new, but I would love more people to play with!

    I thought it was fantastic. It was really well-paced and had an interesting story. The art's great and the QTEs didn't really get in my way. The timer definitely forced a couple mechanical mistakes (accidentally clicking something while rushing to click something else), but more often it made me make quick decisions that I may or may not have regretted later. I'm also really curious to see how it goes for the rest of the season. It does seem like this was kind of an action-heavy pilot episode and the tension might get turned down a bit later to make room for more puzzles and stuff.
