    I sometimes wish GTA didn't tie its music so closely to the idea of a car radio. What, I can't buy a Walkman? They have this great music / talk radio feature, but it's really difficult to enjoy on...

    It's a definitely much more of a computer RPG issue. There are really no tabletop games where you completely "loot" every corpse and sell all the minor junk. That would be excruciating. For the most...

    I won't typically turn off the music in a game unless it's distracting, but the last time I actually enjoyed a videogame's soundtrack was probably something like Sid Meier's Colonization.

    ANH is a simple, classic story told almost flawlessly. I don't think there's a better expression of the hero's journey in the entirety of cinema. I think that's enough to clearly elevate it above...

    She's a very competent independent scavenger on a harsh desert world (mechanics, self-defense, languages), a good pilot, and a powerful Force user. That's about it.

    Completely tangential, but I've never understood why some people insist on seeing Mary Sue (an author's self-insert power fantasy) as a gendered term. It's a useful niche term, and it seems perfectly...

    Oh yeah, speaking about Force stuff, one thing that still bothers me is we don't get the slightest hint of power from Leia. Sure the EU provides good excuses why she might never have been trained as...

    On second viewing, the movie felt a little more logically consistent. There were a few lines I missed the first time which did clarify somewhat, though not completely.

    Like the creator of Dwarf Fortress, I have a weird habit of reading tabletop RPG books and almost never playing them. It's particularly exciting to discover a new mechanic or idea, and let your brain...

    So what the hell is the Resistance anyway, as opposed to the Republic? Are they just a paramilitary arm of the Republic, or what? I've only seen the movie once so far, but everyone I've heard also...

    Well, the price just dropped to €299. Guess I have to buy one now.

    I watched Ex Machina a couple months ago, and it's still on my mind a little bit. It's basically a good science fiction short story (ie, an extrapolation of technology and its consequences) turned...

    That's literally every story, except ones that are completely incompetent and/or playing with the form. It's conflict. If nothing goes wrong, there's no story to tell.
