Thanks. I have no worries about finding a job. Just with finding a job that pays as well as the last one did.

From the few reviews I've read of Avengers, the writers/directors pulled off the same trick they did with CA: Civil War in terms of balancing time and subplots for the ensemble. What intrigues me is the idea that the villain is the protagonist so he gets more screen time than you'd expect (I mean, unless I'm misinterpreting remarks made by the directors on that issue). It sounds like a good way around the pitfall of an underdeveloped villain. 

Agree with Deadpool 2. That last trailer sold me more than anything else.

On a surface level, sure. But it has intelligent, pointed things to say about how an Afrofuturisitc society would function in modern times and what responsibilities it has to itself and the outside world. And it has one of the best villains ever written, a character whose rage and viewpoint are understandable even when his actions are horrible.

No, I've avoided mobile games for the most part. And my commitment to AC: New Leaf is so inconsistent that I'm sure a mobile version of that would be a waste of time for me. 

On Phantasy Star 2


Posted on 04/25/2018 at 06:44 PM | Filed Under Blogs

It's weird how Phantasy Star II is a game that is dated in many ways and hard as hell to boot and yet it was a game that made me finally fall in love in RPGs in my mid-twenties. The Retronauts episode covering it (1up.com era) truly sold me on those early games and from those that I've played (and of course, World of Warcraft), I would no longer be blind to the genre. 

I must've played PS2 on the most devices than any game I've owned: Dreamcast, PS2, X360, iPod, GBA, PSP and soon enough, PS4/Xbox One (btw, PS games 2-4 will be available on that upcoming Sega Classics Collection). 

As I've stated before, I've never finished the game, not even close. I like the music, the graphics, the characters and the bleak story and yet there are game design choices that don't age well. You need a strategy guide to figure out what gear/weapons work for which characters and what spells truly do; the game never gives you info on this. Also, you grind more than any game I've ever played. 

And yet, it still has charm. My willingness to give it a shot and play it multiple times have created an appreciation for it over the years. While I think PS IV is the superior game (and few will dispute that, I wager), it's still an important game for the genre and for myself as a gamer.

Thanks! I hope everything is going well for you, too!

Yeah, I've been feeling the aches and pains already. That may be due to my health but I've also got a job that can be taxing physically. I also like to take naps more often the older that I get.

I'd argue that the first film is very political. There is definitely a strong focus on class divide/warfare. The bad guy's plan (which you initially think has to do with climate change) is to basically make poor people murder each other so that the rich and powerful can hang back and not take any responsibility. 

The Golden Circle's villain does have an extreme plan on how to end the War on Drugs but when you see the film, consider how the film's President reacts to her demands. Its a section of the film that surprised me and it can surprise you.
