You reside in the US, Canada, UK, or Austrailia, because.moe is really useful to see if something is available to legally stream in your region. Thanks for the link.

Putting Anime into your Eyes

As anyone who's followed LRR for a while will have noticed, a fair amount of the crew and the fanbase have at least a passing interest in anime. For an outsider though it can be a little difficult knowing where to start, including good places to find series in the first place. These days, especially...

Re: Politics and the Vague Fear of Something Called Donald Trump

So... I'm not seeing what the problem is or why the ad is offensive in any way. The only point of contention I could possibly see is someone thinking "They're using real-life protests to shill their drink! How dare they use our actual suffering to promote their product?" To that, I say &q...

Re: Hex: Shards of Fate

First and foremost, this isn't an angry reply, I'm just glad to have the chance to talk more about a game and genre I'm interested in. No worries, as I said, I'm not here on a 'this thing is bad and you are wrong for liking it' angle. In fact, on that note I'd be interested to here what aspects of ...

For those who don't know but are curious: It's basically Magic the Gathering if it came out exclusively as an online product. That's a pretty crude simplification but it's what you're going to think if you give it a try. It was also what WotC's legal department thought when they sued them over it (...

Also I was deeply suspicious of her the whole time. I'm not sure if I should feel slightly smug or if that was intentional.

Re: The depressing depression thread

I watched Inside Out in the cinema with my siblings when it came out, and afterwards they said that they "understand me better now". I found it curious, because the film did a good job at presenting depression overall, but depression is such a wide and varying thing that one story can't e...

Re: Need some help

Out of curiosity, do these pulses you're experiencing before the vertigo/dizziness feel electrical at all (like a small zap or shock)?

Also, if it's not too personal to ask, are you currently on (or have you recently been on) antidepressants or anti-anxiety medication?

Re: Ghostbusters 2016

I want the movie to tank so Hollywood will get into their heads to stop thinking that making reboots is a good idea. Plenty of remakes flop hard all the time. If the failures of, say, the Conan the Barbarin, Total Recall, and Robocop remakes have done nothing to slow down the rate of remakes/reboot...

Furlong's Free-to-Play Forays (CCG edition)

Over the last few weeks, in the search of "things to mess around with whilst listening to podcasts" I've been paddling around in the world of online CCGs. Since CCGs seem to be an area which a fair amount of the LRR community are interested in to some degree, I thought I'd share my general...

The real hell of it is that this film has been turned into yet another battleground for the Nerd Culture Wars.

Which, again, no one thought was likely back before the race get underway. Heck, even when it did Trump wasn't even seen as the most potentially successful lunatic fringe candidate running.

For those in the UK: how likely are the stories of Scotland and northern Ireland planning to hold independence referenda so they can stay in the EU as independent countries? Scotland is very likely.

I really like the art style and the character design for this in terms of the fact that all of the characters look unique.

I'll probably join in, if I can find a way to watch it. Do Funimation block proxies? I believe their main site does (it was certainly doing so in 2015). If it's also up on their youtube channel you may be able to get around it that way, though. ... That is a lot better than it has any right to be. ...

Re: LRRcast - Concentrated Value

Personally, I've always been far more concerned about quality than quantity when it comes to length of games (or any media for that matter). If a game strikes me as being 'not worth it' on account of length, it's because I consider it to be poorly paced as a result - which can just as easily mean a ...
