Say, I just remembered something - if you are thinking positively about Deadpool, you might also want to check out The Voices, a movie Ryan Reynolds did a couple of years ago. It's a comedy horror, and I liked it.  May have to watch it again after having this reminder of it, actually. :)

Here's the trailer.

I believe they're available on Amazon Prime, if you have that service.  I re-watched a ton of Rocky and Bullwinkle there not too long ago.  Glad you found them! :)

Sorry, buddy - at least you've been playing some decent stuff!

I tried out the first book of The Codex Alera and got about halfway into it before giving up on the series.  It's one of those things where at every turn, the worst possible thing happens and our heroes barely survive.  They get healed up, then they're on to the next terrible thing happening.  No moments of happiness or triumph.  I don't think it's supposed to be "grimdark" - I think it's supposed to be a way to keep your interest level up because there's always some new crisis.  It just did not do it for me.  So I went back to the Dresden books.

(Side note, I found out that The Codex Alera was the result of a bet that the author could not write a series based on two "lame" concepts, ancient Rome and Pokemon.)

I read the first two or three Sword of Truth books and decided I just wasn't that into S&M and Ayn Rand.  But clearly, there are plenty of people who feel differently than I do, because there are plenty more books in the series.

Me too! :)

To me, it's a question of being true to the character.  A PG-13 movie wouldn't have been.

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.
