It seems a little dumb for me to build a gaming PC but not actually play games. Of course, I want to, but I often spend my time re-reading fanfiction instead of playing games, or catching up on movies or TV shows.
(Yea, I’m a weirdo.)
Anyway, I recently bought a whole bunch of games during Steam’s Summer Sale, and I decided randomly to just give Portal a go. And man oh man, am I glad I bought the game and played it.
Well, well, well, what do you know? Words don’t have the root words we think they have. English is such a messy language. Always wondered why ‘gingerly’ even meant what it meant.
That is a wonderful breakdown of the Joker in what is still the best superhero movie I’ve ever watched. Marvel has some great films that equal or even supersede The Dark Knight Rises for me, but the second film in Nolan’s Batman trilogy is hands down the best superhero film for me.
The Joker is the sort of villain I want to be able to write, that I wish more authors and scriptwriters can write so that we have more epic films. Unfortunately, it’s so much easier to write a generic, formulaic villain than one as complex as Nolan’s Joker.
I haven’t had a good rant about Fairy Tail in a while, mainly because it’s not worth a lengthy whine in a blog post. But this…this is stupid. This is a level of stupid that makes me struggle to think of anything more stupid.
And so another giant says goodbye.
Finally got my Inked and Screened posters in.
So the news came in today. Joseph Schooling of Singapore beat Michael Phelps at the 100m butterfly event at Rio 2016 for Singapore’s first gold medal and Olympic record to boot. Hurray! Majulah Singapura!
Good for him. I’m not too fussed though.
The genre of ‘stuck in an MMO’ has really taken off in the past few years. Sword Art Online, Overlord, Log Horizon (which I have yet to watch) and now The New Gate.
AHHH!!!! DARTH VADER!!!!!
Also, Donnie Yen’s English is pretty good. And I ❤ him too.
A grimmer Star Wars is something to really look forward to. The series was built on a more optimistic, heroic style. But the word ‘war’ is in the title of the series, and finally we’re getting something more realistic.
I really need to dampen expectations before the hype train gets derailed by a potentially bad movie.
