So just how thin is the story in this game?

I'll wait for the inevitable repackaging/GOTY edition with all the Lightning DLC.

The episode was definitely about Clara/Doc and not the Doc and Gallifrey (that's probably being saved for the next time they decide the hiatus the show or something).  Because of that, I definitely liked the second half more since the first half kinda 'beat around the bush'; the series is incredibly sparse with details about the Doctor so I definitely didn't expect it here and wouldn't want it for a one hour episode.  That said, I like the ending, it's a much more epic send off than Clara fucking about with a magical Raven and works with her resonance with the Doctor as a pretty solid companion to him (and her change from timid to courageous).

Just the opposite. It made the death feel incredibly cheap.

No companion will ever be in danger because Moffat refuses to kill them. It's weak as fuck.

The episode itself? Where do I even start.

Code:
Gallifrey is back already, unceremoniously announced and we don't find out how.
Nor does the Doctor detect it, after the series telling us multiple times he would feel if any TLs came back to the universe.

We don't get any resolution of the Doctor/TL situation - he sends Rassilon off and then just leaves.

Speaking of which - they resurrect Rassilon to have him appear for ten minutes?
Then he just runs off like a bitch, especially while he's wearing TL weaponry? Bullshit.

We don't even see him address the High Council.

What happened to Missy? Again, another thread dropped.

Ohilia is now inexplicably the Doctor's enemy. And how the hell did she get to Gallifrey in the first place?
And why was *she* yelling at the Doctor to come back, and not one of the TLs? Again, it made zero sense.

Does the Doctor know where Gallifrey is now? Why did he bother saving it if he was just going to run off again?

The entire thing has been building up for 10 years and we got 20 grossly unsatisfying minutes.

On top of that, the Doctor is murdering people now.
Yes, he regenerated, but the Doctor *shot* him.
After last year's ragging on soldiers all season, he fucking picks up a gun and shoots someone in cold blood.

Complete bullshit.

Then we spend the rest of the episode setting up a Mary Sue resolution for Clara to run off in a Tardis.
Never mind the fact that it cheapens the death Face the Raven completely.

Then after repeatedly telling Clara that Danny can't be saved because it will create a paradox and maybe the end of the universe, when the Doctor is told that removing Clara and keeping her alive will create a fracture in time and end the universe? "Ah fuck it, I'm going to do it because I miss Clara". Shitty, inconsistent character writing.

And is the universe fucked now that Clara's been removed from time? Another thread totally dropped.

Then Clara inexplicably chooses the diner as her Tardis shape when she's never been there, and the Doctor even points it out. It makes zero sense. Why wouldn't she choose something like the cafe from her first episode?

Too many points went for a cutesy moment instead of a coherent plot.

This was shitty writing on the level of Lost or Prometheus and made zombie Cyberman Brigadier look like fucking Shakespeare.

This episode was worse than Fear Her. Easily one of my least favourite episodes in the entire run of the new series and the worst finale so far.

I really, truly wish they'd had the balls to stick with turn based.

Weak sauce.
Sorry man, but you're one of a small percentage of old fogeys who feel that way.

That, man, is a load of fucking bullshit.

I think I could have also made my arguments in a less antagonist (or asshole-y) way.

I actually don't think you were doing that at all. Like I said, the ESRB/MPAA comparison was spot on.

Stuff gets cut for arbitrary reasons all the time, and it will get cut especially if it affects a rating.

But you were kind of being an asshole about Fallout 4.

Ugh. That finale.

First half? Great.

Second half? Sucked *ass*.

To be serious, I think Rob's comparison of the ESRB and MPAA was bang on and I don't think you guys were really listening to him.

He wasn't advocating that same sex relationships get taken out.

He wasn't comparing same sex relationships to a boob slider.

He was saying that if same sex content is going to be cut from a game, Nintendo is the likeliest company to take it out.

Given that Nintendo traditionally aims its games at younger gamers, and given that the game will probably have a T rating, there's a strong chance they'll take out the content given the probable reaction from some parts of America and possibly from parents who buy the games for their kids.

Fallout 4 having same sex relationships is a different thing because it was an M rated game and it was non-Nintendo.

Nobody's advocating the content getting cut (I'm not) just that Nintendo has a history of dodging as many possibly controversial bullets they can, and it's pretty likely they'll do it if they think they can get away with it here.

Is there any game that Rob likes?

Dec 22nd seems like an incredibly weird time to launch this game.

Most people will be done their christmas shopping by then.

Why would they put it out so late?
43  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: November 20, 2015, 12:34:46 AM
It was .... okay. Not terrible but not fantastic.

On the other hand, I don't mind an experimental episode that's kind of interesting even if it fails slightly.

However, I'm loving the two parters this season and feel like this has been the strongest season since the show came back.

None of the camp or cheese of the RTD era, or the goofiness of the Matt Smith era.

I'm really enjoying the season. And all of the spoiler free reviews I've read says tomorrow's episode is amazing.

Peter Capaldi is my favourite Doctor since McCoy.
