Pony Stories 719

Go read this. Derro review of Captain America 2 that is utterly hilarious to read. Probably regardless if you’ve seen the movie or not. Two and a half years old and I just ran across it even though I read that guy’s blog on a regular basis.

A handful of really short reviews today. Stuff I accepted or liked, but just didn’t have anything to say about them.

Just saw the movie Arrival. A bit more artsy than I like, but good enough. The start and end are pretty good science fiction and the middle is mostly forcefully meaningful scenes in a almost montage setup. So, the middle kind of lost my attention when I realized they weren’t going to focus on the actual translation work. The end had good dose of scifi that I gave the middle a pass. I don’t want to spoil the ending since the reveal is really the point of the movie. I’m not sure I’d recommend it to someone looking for good science fiction. Just know that if you do go watch it, the movie does have some good science fiction tucked into the start and end.

Beep boop beep. I’m still kind of basking in the minor feeling of accomplishment from catching up on the Big Master Review List. Even my reviews all added and all I have to do is keep up with everyone I’m following. I could even take my time and read some of the reviews people are posting.

The universe apparently thought I was getting too close to actually being completely caught up with the BMRL. Gave me a problem with Google Sheets that was a pain and took some tracking to pin down. Though I did find it and can now get back to using it with Firefox once again. Killed my momentum, but has not stopped me.

So, gaming is back to Fallout 4 again. Had a few games of Master of Orion (the new one), but just kind of slid back to Boston apocalypse. Skyrim was gorgeous with all the best high-resolution mods and my new video card. I played for a bit and then realized that as pretty as it was, I really didn’t want to play any more Skyrim. I’ve just played all the content into the ground and especially the early levels kind of suck for actual enjoyable experience with just the act of playing. I realized that for all the railroading of Fallout 4 (main quest in particular) overall it is a much better open sandbox game than Skyrim. I just feel like what I do has more actual effect on the world, with the settlements and everything.
