AKH Pre-release - how'd you do?

Suggested listening It's the topic for that thing. Do the thing, then talk about the thing. (personal side note, pre-releases are becoming an increasingly bittersweet event. As I was playing today, I realised that this event was literally the only MTG [yes, even digitally!] I'd had time to be able ...

Re: SpeedrunOneWord Ep01 - Portal

I really enjoy speed runs in general, so this LRR flavored take on it was a nice surprise. Having watched it, on the whole, it was excellent all around, but not without a few teeny wrinkles. But hey, it's a first episode thing - you don't expect to nail it perfectly on the first attempt. Specific th...

Re: Crossing the Streams

Agreed - and honestly some of the time I just straight up prefer it to Mario Kart. I think S&ASRT does a better job balancing technical skill and luck (most prominent example, Sonic's version of the blue shell can be consistently avoided with decent skill, but even if you hit it, the delay is a ...

AER Pre-release - How'd you do?

Maaaaaan... feels like just last week they were rolling out all the sweet new Kaladesh cards, and now there's another new set to contend with. Good gravy. Still, at least this is a *pleasant* surprise for a change. On the the subject of "pleasant" - having thoroughly enjoyed the previous s...

Re: The Mixed Emotion Thread

Emotions are tricky. It was still pretty fresh when I posted it, so I guess I was feeling more of the bad with the good. And/or I was a little worried that the progress has overall been good, but that incident was particularly worrying. *shrug* Emotions are tricky.

Re: The Mixed Emotion Thread

Have an odd one today. So I've had anger issues for a large part of my life.

The worst part is that it tended to be a self-sustaining cycle, ...

Re: LRR is starting to lose me

I guess I tend to agree with what seems to be the general consensus of "on the whole it's excellent, but here's my specific issues / nitpicks". For me, it's that the timezone difference means that I spend something like 75~80% of the streams at work, 15~20% is on during the "stupid in...

Re: Loading Ready Sealed League

Auserker [0-2] Omega Lairon Game 1 was sadly a bit one-sided thanks to an unfortunate case of mana flood on my opponent's side. The upside is they were able to whip out Sorin nice and early... only to hit a mountain with his + ability, and then proceed to get eaten by dogs the very next turn. Game ...

Re: Loading Ready Fan Draft.

All the more reason to look into alternatives - MTGO isn't the only game in town, merely the one we're most accustomed to... and I guess has official support which is handy.

But yeah, if we all really want to fandraft badly enough, it's probably best to start weighing our options.

Re: LoadingReadyLIVE [the show, not the channel]

For my money, I really like how "This is Live..." sorta caught on as the unofficial tagline/opener for the first few episodes. It felt very "classic LRR", in that spirit of taking an improvised thing and just embracing it. Lord knows the fans do it themselves with all the in-joke...

It's a tricky one... 4 weeks/episodes of a currently running and exceptionally popular show like GoT, I feel, falls right into that grey area for spoilers.
