Oh, I did watch the first 2 episodes of The Mandalorian, and it's pretty darn good. I highly recommend it for your viewing experience.


Best space Western since Firefly imo. (Have there been any space westerns since Firefly?)

Either way, I'm eagerly awaiting the next episode.

I was handed Disney+ from my parents, my gf has been enjoying it, but I just sorta... don't care for the vast majority of the stuff there.

I imagine I'll wait until Disney+ has been out for a few years before binging it for a month or two, unless I wind up getting access to somebody's account or something.

My wife wants to get Disney+. I'm opposed but not a battle I'm going to win.

I don't see a point in it, but that's mostly because I don't like streaming in general and don't have a ton of nostalgia for most Disney output at this point in my life (and the stuff I WOULD probably rewatch, I already own on DVD).

I have enjoyed the heck out of Disney Plus thus far.

My wife watches The Nat Geo stuff, Dr. Oakley, African Lions, and last night, Life Below Zero. (Those people are nuts.)

I've enjoyed The Simpsons and all the old 90's Saturday morning cartoons and the Disney after school cartoons. Plus, The Mandalorian is great. It's worth the 7 bucks a month for me.

The Disney Afternoon Toons are almost enough to get me to subscribe alone.

I'm just waiting to see if they work out some of the kinks

Wonder how hard it'd be to get a job writing for a scifi show. Imagine that must be a hyper-competitive field since a lot of people would want to do it.

I imagine it is like trying to write in many other fields, nowadays.

That is, unless you live in New York or L.A. and you know certain people, you can get fucked. *shrugs*

Whoa, I missed this. It's been a whirlwind.

Will write more later, but fun recap: I'll be in Phoenix to see the Steelers hopefully clobber the Cards (2nd Steelers game ever, 3rd NFL game).

Taking a vacation from film work until next year.
Getting more advanced in my Scuba certifications (that I only started a couple months back).

I have Disney+ via my sister, I wasn't going to get it otherwise. The price point is fine, but I have too much I want to watch in my backlog anyways.

Finished Luigi's Mansion 3, Pokemon, and working on Astral Chain now.

Um, that's all.

Finally beat Altered Beast. Wound up watching a boss fight video for the final boss, but it really wasn't any help (their method wasn't working for me) and, while it didn't exactly "spoil" the ending, it showed me part of it.

I will say that if I hadn't watched the lv4 boss fight a while, I'm not sure I ever would have been able to reliably beat him. Granted, my victorious playthrough I wound up fumbling an entire life/continue on it, which really wasn't one of my best performances although it was an improvement over my earliest attempts.

All the same, pretty happy to beat the game since it took some replays and effort. I will say that you kinda lose something with unlimited checkpoints today, although you kinda need them for longer games whereas older titles were meant to be beaten in 15-60 minutes.

If you were stuck in a tropical paradise with food, water, shelter, the Internet, and your health in tact, but for that reward you only get to play 5 video games for the rest of your life, what 5 games, would you bring with you, and why?
To kinda piggyback off of what PO said, assuming Wave means the actual definition of paradise (basically, a land where all your wants and needs are fulfilled) and not the layman's idea of the word (a Caribbean beach with palm trees), then my need for an abundance of games would probably drop a lot. That said, I'm still a gamer at heart, so this would be tough.

1 would definitely have to be either a Mario or Zelda game. or possibly 2 slots go to these. A Mario game, with it;s many secrets and ways to entertain yourself, has more mileage, but I think I'd need at least 1 Zelda game to keep me rooted in a grand adventure, too.

After that, it's probably be a mix of games with lots of replay value, like Smash, Mincecraft, Diablo, etc. Maybe even League of Legends, despite the fact that I've given up that cursed game. An Age of Empires, being a linchpin series in my gaming life, would probably have to be one. Perhaps Civilization 6, too.

The Wave Master posted...
Bonus Question: What 5 games would you not bring because they would make the paradise a nightmare?
I feel like a better way to phrase this would be "Which 5 games, that you have played, and were forced upon you, would suck the most to only have access to?", since games that I've never played (specifically if I avoided them because I knew I wouldn't like them) opens up thousands of possibilities. But ones that I did play, but ended up not liking, would make more sense.

Like PO said, there aren't many that have been so bad that I would dread playing them if I could only have 5. But any single player game that lacks any shine or replay value would be the worst. Like, I've played the first (3) 5 Nights at Freddy's games, and while they are enjoyable, they have some of the lowest replay value I can think of.

So whatever happened to that witch? I bet she overdosed herself doing some weird ass ritual at Stonehenge.

Newest (I think?) Simpsons episode ("Todd, why have you forsaken me?") was surprisingly good. As always, Homer is great as a background character. However, in general, they've overused god as a character this season.

Kinda digging the casting for the young chick, who has a cool Egan vibe.
