    Fighting Games

    They are masters of that style but I wish it could be used in something with less busy looking combat. This is too much:
  2. HTC Vive Cosmos product page - https://www.vive.com/us/product/cosmos/ 1440 x 1700 pixels per eye (2880 x 1700 pixels combined) 110-degree field-of-view 90Hz refresh rate $699 New consumer best specced model? I wonder if this will push down the price of the Valve unit. Best value is still the Samsung that goes on sale constantly.
  3. I do not like this analogy at all. Alcohol can be consumed regularly (in moderation) for an entire lifetime with zero long term health affects. Smoking cannot be done safely in any quantity. Period. Full stop.
  4. source - https://www.theverge.com/2019/9/11/20861018/trump-vape-juul-ban-flavored-fda-e-cigarette I have to say I'm a little surprised. That sounds like a pretty major move that will cut down on young people vaping.

    Have we gone full anime?
  6. source - https://www.engadget.com/2019/09/10/iphone-xr-8-price-cut/ Apple had their big event today. I mentioned this offline but I told you this would happen. Apple is very consistent about this. Very good chance I will move my mom to an XR later this year from her current iPhone 6 Plus. It will be a big upgrade in terms of CPU, memory and camera.
  7. So I figure I might as well reuse the thread for the movie to talk about the Netflix series I am watching. I'm more than a few episodes in so I feel comfortable posting about it. It sticks very faithfully to the formula set down to the movie but there is just more of it now:
  8. imdb - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1441395/ This got a lot of buzz when it first came out because there is a lot of nudity and sex but I often saw people mentioning that they thought the story and acting was good so I randomly decided to give it a shot when I saw it pop up on Netflix. It definitely earns the horror label but it's much more about psychological than any kind of gore. Feels like a low budget indie film (even with candid camera scenes) but obviously stars a big name and had a budget in the millions. It was pretty weird. Even beyond just building suspense the movie is very slow. The acting and story was OK but you spend a lot of time trying to figure out what is going on because they only give you hints. I probably would not recommend this since it's just a bit too weird.
  9. imdb - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6565702/ There is nothing to like about this movie. A million plot holes, strange situations and important things simply not explained. Completely forgettable. I don't recommend this to anyone.

    kobo libra h2o $170 - https://us.kobobooks.com/collections/ereaders/products/kobo-libra-h2o waterproof 7.0" 300ppi screen physical buttons 8gb built in storage quick review - https://www.digitaltrends.com/ebook-reader-reviews/kobo-libra-h20-review/ This is a brand new model from kobo and I will probably buy this. It's very similar to some of their other models but it's a solid combination of features for the price.
  11. I'm six episodes in (so only two more to go). I'm going to finish it but I have a lot of problems with this show. Take all the fantasy races and replace them with "foreign, poor people". Take the evil monster (it's in the trailer) and replace it with "jack the ripper". Take the half-magic enemy nation and replace it with "generic faceless enemy nation". You can do all those replacements very easily because none of the core story elements seem to rely on any of them being special/fantasy. I think it's good for fantasy stories to borrow from reality, to make good drama using things we know, but the fantasy elements in this are practically inconsequential. Regarding the story itself, I'm completely bored with the two main characters. The side characters have a bit more interesting stories. I already mentioned the dialogue not being good. It does not get better. I am already going to say that unless you find the trailer really exciting, skip this.
  12. Finished season 3. I still liked it but it started to deviate a bit from the formula used in season 1 and 2. More time spent on side characters. They pretty much ended the show though so it looks like they will avoid the possible outcome of going completely off the rails like orange is new black .
  13. I finished the second season. Good show. I actually feel this season was even better than the first season. Everything built right off of the first season while still being a new story arc with many new characters. The only things I want to criticize was the music, which felt far too in-your-face creepy, and how they kind of discarded one of the main characters from the first season (Dr Carr).
  14. First impressions. Strong meh. Most scenes feel really mechanical. The dialogue has already made me cringe a few times. The story is pretty basic so far. For now I'm going to keep watching because I want to see where this goes, if it gets better, but I'm only going to watch it casually.
