Re: Talking Simulator

Okay, quick disclaimer: I'm haven't seen all the Talking Simulator videos yet because I don't have the free time, so I may say things that are addressed in ones I haven't seen. The genre that shares a namesake, cyberpunk, is exemplified by its aesthetic, but also by its narratives that often deal wi...

Re: LRRcast - Star Wars

Agreed. Maybe a Corrector's Commentary? Yessss. I debate your comment about them being faceless to him. ... That said, if the Star Destroyer carries a regiment, it is unlikely that the guards were part of his unit, and therefore he wouldn't have the personal connection to them. This keys into what ...

Re: LRRcast - Star Wars

My only significant issue with the film was the "seeing exploding systems" bit, but then I just decided that the Hyperspace weapon catapulted debris/light through hyperspace, which was falling back into realspace lightyears away. Yes, it's techobabble, but not necessarilly more than hypers...

Series Idea; "Dave's Advertiser Reads..."

... The Complete Works Of HP Lovecraft. ... Bram Stoker's Dracula. ... 50 Shades Of Grey. ... Literally anything. Inspired by Graham's “inspired” narration of the Watch + Play Walden and the Werewolf, this would simply be Graham, sitting in a chair, reading novels... in that voice. You know the one.

Re: Armchair Philosophy - Is Comedy based on Horror?

The key question to ask is "Why is the world not behaving in ways you can reasonably predict scary?", to which the answer is "Because if I cannot predict how the world will behave, then I cannot effectively influence it - I am Powerless". H. P. Lovecraft wrote “The oldest and str...

Armchair Philosophy - Is Comedy based on Horror?

I've been writing a short article on creating RPG Horror Scenarios, and it's involved reading a moderately ridiculous amount of adventures, horror stories, and articles on psychology. One of the key ingredients in horror is that it plays on primal fears, which can be summarized as: 1. Ceasing To Exi...

Re: NEW VIDEO - Superficial Intelligence

Meanwhile, just over the hill, the Non-linear Anti-Baryon Spire nears completion. In the ScentMind, one Thoughtform says to another "I really didn't think the hologram decoy would work that well. How could they fall for it 34 times? They just vanish, and look completely alike!" In any cas...
