    I've thought a lot about this and come to the conclusion that it is Fellini's "Nights of Cabiria" (Le notti di Cabiria)

    That film never fails to make me happy. It's ending is entirely unique, in...

    Call of Juarez really pissed me off. It has one of the most brilliant, inventive, central conceits of any FPS ever (I wish more games would make use of a reliable narrator), but really mediocre...

    I don't think that makes for a very good novel or a very good character, though. Kvothe thus far is both implausible and insufferable. Whether the author intended him to be implausible and...

    Not sure about that. Kvothe is such an over the top Mary Sue that I keep thinking the author is doing it deliberately in an "unreliable narrator" type scenario, but I've yet to see it indicated in...

    I think it's a useful term, actually. It did have some slight sexist connotations when it was originally coined, but I think it's since evolved to become nothing more than a blanket term for novels...

    Most AAA games still do (I just got a boxed copy of "South Park" last week). If I want a game badly enough to buy it on release, I usually make a point of getting a box copy. I just feel slightly...

    Broad City (Comedy Central): I've laughed more times per episode at this than any other show on the air right now. It's really good.

    I've noticed that it's really hard to highlight text in Chrome lately in order to copy and paste. I'll highlight, but it will de-highlight once I let go of the mouse button. It doesn't do that in...

    Nah, it only started when RPS decided to add all the third party, click bait, bullshit ads that every blog has now. It is very hard to control the content of those sorts of ads, probably impossible,...

    I found the sale dates to be confusing too. I was waiting until the last day to get "Expeditions: Conquistadors," assuming I had until the 3rd, but I guess the sale ended on the 2nd and the 3rd is...

    No, if you own the base game already and buy the GOTY you will get the DLC, you just won't get an extra copy of the game. Or that's how it worked when I got the GOTY version of "New Vegas," anyway....

    I really loved the story and its central conceit of an unreliable narrator......but the shooting itself was crap. It felt too much like a popamole game to me. Enemies would pop out form behind...

    Really loved Outlast. It has some flaws (mainly: it relies way too much on trial and error, so much of the game is just dying and dying again until you figure out the correct route, which kills...

    Can't speak to Payday 2, but Payday 1 wasn't very fun with only two players. There were certain levels which pretty much required at least 3 people becuase you have to be doing several things at...

    I have higher hopes for 2014 and 2015 as that's when a lot of the big PC exclusive kickstarters will start being finished--Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity, and Divinity Original Sin, especially.

    Bioware should have just stuck by their original vision and told fans to like it or lump it. I personally loved the original ending to ME3. They fucked it up with the DLC. The scene where a...

    If this becomes reality I might take up skeet shooting just for the fun of it. Start bagging me some free stuff. Of course, they'd probably stick cameras on them then, but you'd think drones with...

    The trend for this sale seems to be: mark the base game down really low, but mark the DLC down very little or not at all. I don't much like this trend.

    I'm already wishing there was a neutral rating. Most of my reviews are neither glowing nor scathing. There needs to be something between thumbs up and thumbs down.

    When I was 12 I'd listen to shitloads of Belly's "King" and the Tank Girl Soundtrack while playing Doom. So I always associate Doom with that.
