Being a gamer: A stigma of our own making.

Can one sit there with dry eyes and still proclaim to be a gamer with love for the hobby? Can one maintain such without having a poisonously bad aftertaste in one's mouth after the recent events unfolding in the wake of the EA-access Mass Effect: Andromeda promotion? If we maintain that we're gamers still, then aren't we responsible for the events too given that reason and measured opinion is totally absent from what's going on in the community today?

Logan: When the actors cost more than the production.

Finally having found the chance to enlist a family-member to cart me to the Imax in my hometown, I was able to see 'Logan' before it left the theater already. The high rate of rotation of movies in Imax means that you have to pounce on the chance to reserve a seat. If you instead wait to reserve at your leasure, you'll be seeing another movie. So, I went to see 'Logan' on it's closing night.

Rockband4Rivals in session report, well, those who bother to show up.

Lat week was a fun week with a fun theme, but For Honor, WoW and Blood Bowl 2 kept me away from doing all that I could've done. With BigOne's support, the crew maintained their spot in the Gold Tier. It looks a lot brighter for our tenure now as we're leaning against the green. I'm perfectly happy with maintaining Gold Tier as flip-flopping I'm not a fan of.

Rockband4Rivals in session report

This week's Rivals competition is finally of a quality that doesn't make me wanna vomit after 30 minutes. A great, albeit small, selection 'W'-songs with a lot of my personal favorite songs in them and a Spotlight-song section with a nice surprise in the line-up.

3rd week report RB4Rivals

Well, the less said about last week the better. You're not telling me that a tier with 87 bands in it reduces our percentiles with this much effect as opposed to a lower tier with several hundred bands in it. The diminishing returns are through the roof and the percentile drops as you even watch the status-screen. Demoralizing is the word to use here.

2nd week report RB4Rivals

It was a hard push, but 2o2p-crew made it out of the ghettoes of the bronze, silver and gold tiers and as of now reside in the platinum tier. The song choices of last week were atricious, so I ended up exhausting the deminishing returns on the spotlight songs and song by the Who, to avoid having to deal with the earbleeds otherwise polluting the 'W'-list last week.

RB4Rivals mid-weekly challenge report.

Allah, Allah, Allah. What torture. The spotlight-songs are horrendous and I'm not having a good time with the 'W'-songs too. The first spotlight song, 'I'm sorry, mister' by No Doubt I can only classify as a set of unpleasant noises that can sterilize frogs in a 500yrd radius. The second is worse than that and the perpetrators behind that should be treated as having committed a terrorist-attack with that abuse of 'musical expression'. The third song is quite fun, but the jewel-track is, for guitar and bass, incomprehensible.
