The computer chess market of the 70s (?) was as niche as it is today. As popular as chess was, we needed to constantly test against computers. I think they were doing that until the early 2000s. It’s been hitting film festivals and been getting a lot of praise. I like the concept here and I hope I’m able to remind myself to look for it when it makes it to places I can watch it. My dad’s into chess too, maybe I’ll watch with him.

I think this is what everyone really wanted when they heard there were space battles in The Old Republic. If they say dogfights, you should probably be moving on your own rather than on rails. This will definitely boost some subscribers, but you really got to wait until January, won’t be out until then. And then you’ll probably only get 3 per day. Their pricing structure is weird.
It’s amazing how all those movies fit together so well. It’s actually pretty seamless except for his inexplicable weight gain between Apollo 13 and Castaway. That’s probably because he got diabetes. Anyway, watch the Tom Hanks movie supercut and celebrate the career of Tom Hanks. TOM HANKS!
You’d think that getting a Red Band trailer would make this movie a tiny bit more interesting. No, unless you get off on a guy filming his daughter being naked and seducing another actor. And that’s weird. Almost as weird as giant CG praying mantis which MAKES NO SENSE! I was unaware of Dracula’s ability to change into any animal he damn well pleases. Rutger Hauer has been present in many famous 80s fantasy movies, but he seems to have fallen on hard times, or is really good friends with Dario Argento. Anyway, now you know there are naked scenes you can find on the internet so you can avoid whatever rehashed plot is left here.
It’s hard finding a ship-building game that allows some freedom and still has good gameplay. I think Defect SDK might have almost found it with adding some roguelike gameplay where you have to continually rebuild your ship for combat. The top-down action is meh, but at least they were able to make a Defiant copy, so the building looks pretty freeform. Let’s how many people make genitalia.
Yup, just a bunch of minigames to sell more remotes. Something that may or may not be cool, is forcing you to play a few games on the gamepad only. No need for giant TV. Just play on your coffee table. For whatever reason. I’m sure somebody will buy this. Not exactly sure who, though.
Kriby’s yarn game was a little different than the norm. Here’s a full return to Kirby with the new Donkey Kong Country feel. I’m really excited for some of the design choices here. However, Kirby looks a slow as a marshmallow rolling off an uneven table. Is he plodding so slowly so we can see the environments? It’s just a shame, because you juxtapose this to the new Super Mario trailer and this falls flat. It’s not even named yet. We’ll have to wait on this. And by wait, I mean I may not play it, of course.
I was previously completely uninterested in another Mario game. Until I saw this footage from Nintendo Direct today. Super Mario 3D World looks much more refreshing and innovative than other trailers had suggested. Cool new power-ups, ability to grab and use blocks as weapons, and three dimensional levels that are for more engaging than any side-scrolling Mario has. Because I want to see what the cherries do, I might be picking this up.
Nintendo should pay for this pure praise. This is only praise. I should say something mean… uh… uh… there’s no Sonic. Not that’s not genuine…
Pumpkin Spice is everywhere in the fall. EVERYWHERE. Let’s dramatize that. Are you afraid of the seasonal flavor? Nope. I love it. And I know fellow poster MeowSkywalker at some point is going to make pumpkin muffins. It warms my heart and my stomach.
