Dice Legacy is a well-produced settlement survival game with strong board game elements. However the combination isn’t very happy, and the studio didn’t handle criticism very well.
Death Stranding boasts a “genre-defying experience”, but it isn’t accurate, it’s defying several genres at once, and it isn’t succeeding on several fronts. In the end, this extremely well-engineered game doesn’t manage to cover the extremely large ego of his main creator, Hideo Kojima.
I have been taking transatlantic flights several times since 2009, and every time I’m barely able to sleep during the 7 or 8 hours (depending on the direction) that the flight lasts for. So I watch movies, and I pick the ones I could have watched at home but had more interesting stuff to do. This is the 2021 batch.
I got “Thing Explainer” by Randall Munroe and while I was excited about it, I found out the very writing constraint that makes it stand out is also its biggest weakness, resulting in a mixed bag for me.
Survival city-building simulators add some tension to an otherwise chill video game genre. But with this tension comes expectations of message that aren’t always fulfilled like Frostpunk masterfully did.
I’ve taken the hobby of reconstituting sets from bins of unsorted LEGO parts I buy from people emptying their attic, and I’ve had the nice opportunity to build a set from Star Wars Episode One, a movie I’ve enjoyed more than most.
I’ve gone back and forth on my opinion of the LEGO Minecraft theme sets, but building the 21153 The Wool Farm set made me finally consider it a failed adaptation.
A local review of The Prom (2020) which action takes place in Indiana tried to make the case the state isn’t that backwards about accepting gay people by resorting to a nasty racist trope.
I’m 36 and I like to describe myself as a life-long LEGO fan but there has been a long stretch of my life after I moved out of my parent’s house when I barely had any LEGO where I lived. Until this Ford Mustang set.
I bought the LEGO Technic 42098 Car Transporter set to build a custom design, and my decision to still build the official model was a mistake.
