  1. There are obvious issues to be addressed with digital media, but we're talking about countless more elements of history and culture being recorded and available than ever before. The idea of history erasure has been more valid at literally every other point in history. Because the majority of things didn't last long enough for us to even know about them. There are a number of relevant cases, like Dogma as you mention, but there are so many more songs, shows and films lost to time that would be preserved to pad out a Netflix library in the present day. You're also acting
  2. Can't agree with this sentiment. We have more mainstream access to more niche media than at any point in history. Decade after decade, TV shows didn't get recorded and released. Unsuccessful albums didn't get second runs. We wind up defining 'history' as only the very most successful parts of it, which isn't history. At least now, with the services you describe, niche music won't have to disappear by virtue of not being quite popular enough to justify reproduction. There are more remixes you've never been able to hear than ones you have. Which may still be
  3. We've finally reached a take of such temperature that the heat death of the universe has been triggered.
  4. If fighters aren't going to unionise, this kind of anti-fighter deal is going to keep happening. Obviously the Fertittas and Dana White are anti-union shitheads, but I imagine WME may be too. That said, they deal with plenty of people in the SAG, so they know unions are unavoidable in some cases, unlike the Fertittas and their sketchy non-union casinos. Scott Coker should lead the charge on this. That's how he can have a more important legacy on the sport than Dana. And it'd be hilarious watching him be utterly beloved, at the same time as presenting Bellator as the 'et

    It Takes Two

    Clocked this yesterday, and it was everything you're all saying it is. Relentlessly inventive, incredibly pretty, great difficulty balance, and a joy from beginning to end. There may have been better story stuff than the early sections, but we got into a habit of skipping most cut scenes. I didn't really enjoy the in-game resolution between the two main characters but, to be fair, Can't wait for a sequel. And a spin-off movie. Until then, I suppose I'll try A Way Out.

    It Takes Two

    I played a couple of hours of this with a friend last night, and it oozes quality. They've absolutely ironed out every frustration point, without making themselves into a Lego game that you just stroll through. So far, it's a great Toy Story game, a great Star Wars game and a great Indiana Jones game. Can't wait to see what kind of great game it is next. We do skip most cut scenes, admittedly. It's a beautiful game that deserved less clunky writing.
  8. I did Shadow Point ages ago, and really enjoyed it. I've pretty much played all the puzzle games. I'm just super curious about the diorama/3rd person inventiveness people mention with Astro Boy. I'd say that, if HZD can come to PC, anything can, but I suspect Astro Boy is too much of a peripheral seller.
  9. Finally finished Moss. Because I forgot I hadn't. It's good, but I didn't find it very good. It has some of the best graphics on the Quest, and the puzzle design is largely great. But the jumping is off. Feels both clipped and floaty at the same time. The combat's not exactly a draw, and it's standard VR game length at about 2-3 hours. The story and setting were fine enough, but I'm finding myself yearning to try something as good as everyone says Astro Bot is. Somewhat selfishly, I hope someone just steals their ideas wholesale, because I can't see myself picking up a
  10. I enjoyed the Flight Attendant, even though it's silly as all fuck. Official high and low points within:
  11. The Perfection A 'feminist' sexual assault revenge thriller about elite cello players. That is very obviously written by people who are not women, do not know any women, and possibly just don't like women. A couple of stupid twists, a couple of comedy gore shots. Not worth anyone's time really. 1.5/5
  12. I Care A Lot Manages to be both utterly preposterous and a horrifying reflection of American healthcare at the same time. Though the questions it raises are a bit on the nose. While the plot itself doesn't stand up to a lot of scrutiny, Pike and Dinklage are both incredibly watchable. If you like seeing Rosamund Pike be mean, I can recommend it. 3/5
