You can expect to see movie reviews/talk, weekly top 5s on various things, comedy videos/short films, and other silliness that we get up to. Would appreciate a subscribe!

Anything 51 and up is a recommendation, meaning you aren't wasting your time seeing it. Anything between 51-79 ranges from mediocre to very good. Anything 80+ is what I call a "Great Movie" and it's a must-see and is awesome to various degrees. Anything that's a 50 is something that I'm a fence sitter on (meaning I'm too useless to actually be able to make up my god damn mind) so it could go either way. 49 and under means you should avoid. Under 10 means I was probably raped by the movie or, at the very least, fondled. Despite the effort I've put into explaining my rating system, numbers are fairly often chosen at random (well, maybe my gut feeling) so I might actually like a movie I rated 75 more than an 85, I just really can't be bothered to go back and constantly re-do my ratings.

90 77% Battlefield V (2018) - Nov 29, 2018
"Disclaimer: I only play BF for multiplayer so this review completely ignores single-player. I just rate these 90 because I like how they feel, I like the destruction, the maps are good for the most part (and the few that aren't just don't match my style). Feels pretty familiar in a lot of ways, but I think that's what I want, though I wish there were more game modes and I wish the Battle Royale mode was already out. Prefer modern/futuristic shooters, but this series is one of my MP go-tos. "
55 10% Fallout 76 (2018) - Nov 27, 2018
"The way it handles PvP is not actually bad because it eliminated a lot of griefing. However, there's also almost no tension so while I'm not sure how to fix that, there's not a lot of balance. Lacking human NPCs isn't the problem, it's lacking any real choice/consequences. Also, having a build limit takes away tools that are necessary for players to create their own stories (in the absence of real choices, that is needed), while also taking away desire to loot. It's passable with a friend."
70 28% The Hex (2018) - Nov 10, 2018
"It's another strange, plot-driven game from Mullins and in that way it succeeds because it's interesting, you never know where it's going to go and it dissects games in a fun way. In terms of gameplay it is pretty uninspired: putting multiple genres in a game is neat, I enjoy that, but some of them are incredibly simplistic to the point of not being entertaining... and they drag on. Lots to dig up if you want a story, not the most thrilling to actually play, buries the story under tedium."
80 48% Red Dead Redemption 2 (2018) - Nov 07, 2018
"The good: attention to detail, the relationships/interactions with people, how alive the world feels, the world itself, the story is also fine. The bad: too much realism that makes the game boring more often than is forgivable (I'm not allowing that shit just because of "immersion," it's a bad choice), unnecessary mechanics, small issues that aren't a problem in other games. The ugly: the fast travel system, one of the worst ever, adds to the bad. It's a great game, not a masterpiece."
45 7% Mutant Football League: Dynasty Edition (2018) - Nov 02, 2018
"Don't listen to my score: if you like football this is a good game. The Dynasty mode has a good amount of depth, the season mode is fine, the gameplay is solid (but yes it lacks the depth of simulation takes on the sport), it's funny, gory. I don't like football at all. So now you ask why I played this? It's because I want arcade sports games to make a valiant return and become as popular as they once were because I miss them. If this was something like hockey I would love it."
85 63% Lethal League Blaze (2018) - Nov 01, 2018
"This has a fairly sizeable solo story to play, a few match types which are all fun, all the characters have enough of a difference to be interesting, the beats are banging, the visuals are cool. This is going to live or die based on how popular it is, but even for those wanting an offline experience it's decent for what it is. The gameplay is flawless (simplistic on the surface, exciting, depth if you're great), which makes this worth playing even if you think the quantity of content is lacking."
85 63% Delta Rune: Chapter 1 (2018) - Nov 01, 2018
"I, like many others, enjoyed Undertale for how it played with RPG conventions in various ways. I don't love the episodic format, and while I would rate Undertale a 90 I knocked off 5 points simply because similar tricks don't have the same impact a second time around. However, this is still great stuff and in ways it's better than Undertale; things have been evolved such as having a party system that changes mechanics. Story is still unpredictable, funny and emotional."
40 5% NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 (2018) - Oct 23, 2018
"I hadn't played the first, I was hoping for something as endearing as NBA Jam, this isn't it. Not much to really do, doesn't feel satisfying. I want arcade sport games to make a big comeback but this isn't it."
70 28% Starlink: Battle for Atlas (2018) - Oct 23, 2018
"The first few hours or so I could see this being an 8 but it does get incredibly repetitive. It's another open-world Ubisoft game except with spaceships. You travel to planets, do side-quests repeatedly,, take out towers, build up your forces, have some pretty cool space battles (but hardly amazing), scan creatures, etc. I like that you press a button and are just given a quest and the Star Fox content is great. Lots to upgrade and manage, enjoy switching between guns for different situations."
40 5% Dragalia Lost (2018) - Oct 23, 2018
"I'm a fan of the Nintendo mobile offerings because they did a good job of taking core franchises and simplifying them for phones while not sacrificing too much fun. This original IP had me excited but it's bland. Looks good, doesn't have much creativity. Lots of micromanagement that feels more like a chore, the "depth" wasn't worth it here. Combat is okay but sometimes the touch screen makes it annoying (that's a phone problem in general too). Too much meh storytelling and talking."
