Sci Fi series should only have a trilogy at most. The real power of the genre is in introducing new tech and worlds and such and giving a lil peek into a strange new reality. If you spend too much time in any given sci fi series it just becomes business as usual and without that sheen of wonder over the whole thing you’re usually just left with underwhelming writing.
I always feel like less is generally more. I look at british sitcoms and how one season has, generally 6 episodes as opposed to say american seasons having as much as 24 episodes each. Not that this makes a show AUTOMATICALLY better, it's still worth noting.
Does anyone have opinions on Behringer's recent forays into cloning vintage synths? $600-700 for a polyphonic MiniMoog sounds pretty damn rad. What's the catch?
Nothing out of the ordinary, just normal capitalistic horseshit. The way I understand it is that the company that owns behringer owns the parts that makes all the synth component that just about everyone else uses, so they can get things made for SUPER cheap and undercut everyone else--and apparently the working conditions at said factory are abysmal.
I really enjoyed what I saw of the FF8 run from the other night. Thankfully, since Google et all spy on my ass constantly, I got this in my youtube recs, and thought it was one of the coolest runs I'd ever seen (though I have not seen many):
Pretty sure Keith from Giant Claw was in Yakuza Heart Attack before Giant Claw, which if you've never listened to them, you should! Orange Milk Records is also how I discovered Jerry Paper, who is also pretty amazing.
Orange Milk is ran by Kieth as well! Great label.
Also, damn, this compilation-only YHA track fuckin slays, 10 fucking years later.
The integrated graphics isn't too bad, honestly. With Yakuza 0, I'm getting 35-45 fps which makes it seem like a slightly dumbed down PS3 port, but still extremely playable. League is on medium-high and getting 50-60 fps depending on how much is going on on-screen. I'm pretty satisfied with my set up.
On another note, I got Morrowind, Oblivion and New Vegas on GOG for $5 a pop, and I kinda regret it. I'll play Morrowind again at some point, no problem, I feel like I can always go back to that game since there's still a lot I never did, but with Ob and NV, I have played them TO DEATH. I was hoping to get more fun w/ mods out of them, but so far, installing mods, figuring out load-order and all that has been a pretty grueling pain in the ass. With NV, I have never played any of the DLC, or done a playthrough supporting the NCR. I was hoping to find something more substantial mods than what's actually out there, but I have a feeling that it would be even worse to try to set up.
