Starship Troopers is definitely a movie that was not understood and appreciated for what it was until well after its release.  It came out while I was in MOS training (the thing you do after basic training, where you have a little more freedom), and me and a few of my buddies (I realize now that it was basically a double date) went to see it.  I think we enjoyed it in general, but I don't think we really picked up on that subversive message.

I am also glad Deadpool is rated R.  It would have been really wrong if it were PG-13.

Just wanted to let everyone know that we have noticed the performance issues on the forums these last couple of days.  I got in touch with our host this morning, and apparently they've had a power outage where their servers are.  They're working to get the issue resolved.  (Although if it's a power outage causing it, I'm not sure how much THEY can do.)

Not a huge deal - this isn't the Puritan forum, after all - but I know the subject is a huge can of worms, and one that most people have a strong opinion on.  And like I said, I know it got started because of the podcast, but I don't want this to turn into a long-term discussion about porn and feminism and some of the ugliness of modern life.

I tried to end this post with a joke to lighten the mood, but I don't want to make it seem like I'm making light of things when all I really want to do is change the subject. And I am about to resume listening to this episode, so I still don't have anything topical to contribute.  So I'll do like I see Arvis did and just say "How about them RPGs?"

Super friends?

The good news is, now you know which games from last year were the best! :)

FYI to anyone who (like me) hasn't played The Witcher 3, it's on the current Steam sale for $30, or $35 for the whole trilogy.

I get why the discussion came up, but I'd really love it if this topic was over and we moved on to something else. :)

Unfortunately, I haven't listened to the latest episode yet - I had to wait while I finished up my review of Paper Jam.  Didn't want to take on other people's opinions.

That's what I went for. Got me a nice new Windows 10 machine hooked up to my TV for big screen PC gaming goodness. Pretty happy with it so far, although I admit I haven't bought anything that will test its limits.

I figure it's pretty much always a financial decision - if they think the game will sell less copies because of certain content, they'll cut it.  And I generally bet they're right.

Now that I've gone through a few battles, I think I'll dive into my cards as well and see which cards I need to add in.

Probably some more resources, I'm thinking. ;)

Oh, that reminds me, I mentioned mercenaries - I was told that when they are usable, you'll be able to set a completely different deck for each mercenary so that when you bring them in to replace your champion in a battle, they have a deck that plays to the mercenary's strength rather than the main character's.

Yeah, that was one of the spiderling eggs that I had put into his deck.  It was just a 1/1, but it made all the difference!

I had fun with HEX today, even though I very nearly lost the first two battles of the campaign. :)

Congrats to kofvscapcom and klutz64, who won free cards!  Glad to see they went to a couple of regulars.

I just watched that movie (again) last night!

I've definitely had Pokemon Go on my radar.  Wish they'd announce a release date and more details about how it'll actually work.

Nintendo got us a review copy today.  I'm about to start playing it - looking forward to it.

OK, I can tell where my background is not - I saw that and my brain translated it into Shaquille.  As in O'Neal.
