Posted In: One of my favorites

I've played No Man's Sky starting at the 1.2 path, and now onto the latest (1.31 I believe). At this point it's one of my favorite games. I think if you are interested in the theme, and were initially disappointed, it's worth your time to give it another shot.

It's still a collect-a-thon and inventory management is less than ideal - but they've made a ton of improvements. I'm starting to look forward to what Hello Games does next.

I have finally tried Silicon Valley - and it just didn't hit. Normally when an HBO series is so critically acclaimed I'll enjoy it - oh well

Yeah I watched all the shorts Nothing crazy, but I do think they help. I get that they couldn't really make the movie any longer than it already was

Posted In: A great sequel

Blade Runner 2049 is one of the rare examples of a great sequel. In a lot of ways it's better than the original - but put them together and you have an absolutely wonderful franchise.

If you are on the fence about seeing Blade Runner 2049 - go see it

Best of all time....

Dragon Ball Z... maybe. I have to think a bit more. But I'm a sucker for things like Dragon Ball Z, Hunter X Hunter, and more recently My Hero Academia.

Apparently I need to watch Made In Abyss

With Nintendo traditionally having less-powerful machines than competitors, I think they actually require that of their developers pretty often But it really is impressive.

I really liked episode 37 - because of All Might. It's great seeing overwhelming power, even if it's not absolute and a little broken

I'm not a huge player of online FPS games. This is partially due to how awful I am at them... ok that's most of it Still, every time I see someone play Battlefield 1, I am always in awe of just how amazing the environments look. Honestly I think the game is worth playing for at least a few hours just to be immersed in the environments.

Once winter is upon us, the days are short, and rain falls from the sky.... I'm going to try Persona 5. I played a bit of Persona 3 a long time ago, and I'm stoked to try this one

Ni No Kuni was a lot of fun, and Ni No Kuni II will be an absolute blast if it comes close to, or exceeds the original. With Studio Ghibli kind of erratic, it's great to get an experience that feels Ghibli.

Octopath Traveler looks great, and people have been praising the demo. I can't wait to try it. I think something like this - HD 2.5D, or whatever you want to call it, is a great way to take an old style, and breath some new life into it.

I hope the final game turns out well, and that it's successful.

Halt and Catch Fire is my favorite tv drama ever.

I was wondering what people thought of season three. 

Personally - I think it's still a good show, but I don't think the Cali cartel are as interesting as the Medellín Cartel - and I think the show producers knew that and kind of just moved the show along until the next one.

I loved how well Wagner Moura characterized Pablo Escobar. I'm hoping we get another actor with that same dedication.

Those are all on my list of ones to buy and play. Nex Machina looks like it's on sale right now for the Playstation. 

I'm basically just waiting to finish one of the games I'm currently working on, and then I'll probably get one of those.

I haven't found too much to watch this fall yet - though I know it's all just starting.

I'll be finishing up My Hero Academia - a very surprising, creative, and inspiring anime. One I highly recommend. In some ways it feels like a more lighthearted Hunter X Hunter.

I just noticed that .hack//SIGN was on Hulu, so I'm going to start off by re-watching that. It's a classic one for me
