  1. I don't know if I'm the biggest fan of the art style but I'm such a huge fan of the original Alone in the Dark that I'll probably end up getting it anyway unless the reviews are really bad. I like how the gameplay sounds. I'm really hoping it's not another roguelike though.
  2. Ugh, I guess I should be used to this by now. Thanks for the heads up.
  3. It kills me that SimGolf hasn't been rereleased yet. I love that game and really appreciate it coming up in this episode.
  4. I heard of it and it looked good but I remember just being so burnt out on politics at the time because the United States had such a painful election that I just wanted nothing to do with the game. But now that I've had some time away from that I'll add it to my wishlist and buy it when my backlog clears up a little bit and I have some more money saved up.
  5. Just added Flintstones to my massive backlog of comics to read. I spent a huge chunk of today reading issues of Motor Crush, Future Quest, and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra. Thoroughly enjoyed all three!
  6. I have no idea how to fix it aside from being extremely patient and trying to explain to 30% of the country that anyone critical of Trump isn't "fake news." It's ridiculous we have to do that while a large portion of them are actively shitting on anyone that isn't a straight white male but it's the only way I think it can be fixed.
  7. Just got the book and it's my next book to read. I loved his previous two books but I'm glad that you have said it's not a horror novel so I know that going into it instead of finding out halfway through and being disappointed.
  8. True but that seems kind of hard when they're so hated that they inspire the world's biggest protest. I think we'll be ok if we just keep vigilant by protesting, supporting local democratic clubs, and constantly calling local reps into voting against Trump.
  9. For what it's worth, he's already at a 35% approval rating and now is when it's supposed to be the highest. There will always be some sort of floor that the approval rating cannot drop below, because of evangelicals and other crazy people, but this isn't a good sign for him.
  10. Man, the last week has been insanely exhausting. Friday was super depressing, the Women's March was the most uplifting thing I've seen in a long time, and now I'm back to depressed after today. I've been slowly getting more involved with local politics by calling representatives, doing the Women's March and future protests, and helping my local Democratic club but holy shit, I really hope the next 4 years don't continue to be this intense.
  11. This might be better in the Three Moves Ahead sub-forum since there's war gamers there but I've heard Ultimate General: Gettysburg is really good from listening to the Three Moves Ahead podcast. I also enjoyed Unity of Command since it's not a genre I'm familiar with and it was because accessible but was still an interesting game.
  12. I've felt that way about every new job I started. You'll be ok. It will just take a couple of weeks to get used to it.
  13. The show doesn't really seem like it has all that much to do with the book other than it having the same people (characters?) in it. It was ok I guess? One episode didn't really give me enough to make any sort of judgement on it but it apparently got approved for a full season so I guess I'll see where they go with it.
  14. I've been pretty excited for this since it's been announced. A shorter rpg sounds cool, especially if it allows for more range in choices and for those choices to matter more.
  15. I won't until it's done but I definitely feel better than I did two weeks ago when they were basically tied in polls. It's sad that this is what it took for people to start abandoning ship and I think 40% of the country is still going to vote for Trump because "anyone but Hillary" but at least it seems a lot less likely now.
