‘The Dragonborn Comes.’

Finally this is in a form that I could purchase. And the extended version is even better.

So I’m trying to decide what the @washingcon In Nomine game will be.

Assuming, of course, that they sign off on me doing an In Nomine game there. Although I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t: I’ve run games for them in the last two cons, I’ve caused no drama, and my other game’s going to be GURPS Dungeon Fantasy, which will be a whole lot simpler to plot out. I figure that they won’t even blink an eye, honestly. (more…)

Movie of the Week: What We Do In The Shadows. (Free with Amazon Prime!)

What We Do In The Shadows” is a mockumentary about vampires that was made by Taika Waititi. I’ve wanted to see it ever since I watched Waititi make a no-fooling good Thor movie, and hey! It’s free with Amazon Prime! So I figured I’d let people know.

That’s pretty much it. I like it when it’s easy to cross something off of the list like this. It’s refreshingly straightforward.

Item Seed: Mortar Chucks.

Believe me: I’m as appalled as you’re about to be.

Mortar Chucks – Google Docs

 

Mortar Chucks

 

History does not record the name of the genetic mage who first conceived of the idea of converting the common woodchuck into an area-effect, indirect fire weapon.  History would rather like to find out that name, but the mage had apparently (and very wisely) decided to cover his, her, its, or their tracks. While Mortar Chucks are not quite death-penalty level necromancy, it’s hard to imagine how the things could have been designed and tested without drawing on advanced death magic lore — which is to say, necromancy that does rate the death penalty.

The straining-disbelief Siren trailer.

I have a weird issue with the Sirens TV show.

The Stone Temple Pirates of Tulum [The Day After Ragnarok].

Blame this.

Stone Temple Pirates of Tulum – Google Docs

 

The Stone Temple Pirates of Tulum

[The Day After Ragnarok]

 

Population: 25,000

 

The ancient Mayan city of Tulum (located in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo) was long abandoned by the time of the Serpentfall.  Southern Mexico was protected from the tsunami that wrecked North America, thanks to all the Caribbean islands that took the brunt; but something crawled out of the seas there, afterward. And it attracted cultists, pirates, and other dangerous men.

Third Cloverfield movie is coming out 4/28/2018.

They’re already starting in on the viral marketing stuff, too. Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I saw Cloverfield (enjoyed it a lot), but not 10 Cloverfield Lane. I’m not entirely certain why. Maybe because I just like giant monster flicks more than I do …what 10 Cloverfield Lane was. Certainly I made it a point to go see virtually every giant monster movie that’s made it to the big screen, and when Pacific Rim Uprising comes out in March I’m absolutely going to be there. And that’s with me knowing that it’s very possibly going to be horrible.

Well. As horrible as a movie can be when it involves giant robots punching giant robots in the face, as Honest Trailers put it.  The essentially awesomeness of such a thing is difficult to debase.

‘Bullets.’

Just as a reminder: this band and this video are both kind of weird. And an inspired choice for the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser. I’m still playing it, ain’t I?

Rumor: Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, HEAVILY CONTROLLED gameplay at E3.

Am I desperate enough for Cyberpunk 2077 news to help spread this rumor? Of course I am! PC Gamer:

The Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account sputtered to life last week with a single, solitary “beep”—the first (and so far, only) word to come out of it after four full years of silence. Now a rumor has surfaced on Polish site GRYOnline (via Google Translate) that a new trailer for the game will be shown at this year’s E3, and that it will in fact be playable—although only behind closed doors.

I think that it’s reasonable to believe that there will be a trailer. Whether there’s gonna be a demo game at E3 is another story. But I’ll say this: CD Projekt Red has shown a certain talent for keeping interest alive on this title. Then again, they certainly came through on the Witcher series.  Never underestimate the power of built-up goodwill.
