Go with X/Y rather than OR/AS. The Hoenn games were the series' low point and 3D graphics didn't solve that.

Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World was... interesting. Not sure I "got it" but I certainly came away with an interpretation of what was trying to be expressed, though I probably got it wrong honestly. A solid 3/5, and I want to check out more Murakami so I guess it was a win?

Half way through that I got a bit fed up and read Atlas Shrugged to see why it was so contentious, turns out it makes a mockery of certain groups and their ideals and those people are likely too infuriated by this to give it much of a chance. Fair enough, I think people's opinions on this book are going to come down to their own ideals and how honest they are with themselves. That book's pretty silly in a few ways such as depicting every detractor of the protagonists' (and author's) philosophy and ideas as blithering idiots and presenting the world in a very black and white way with zero nuance, but I liked the story and the core characters. Despite the caricature-like antagonists it was incredibly compelling, so I'd give it a 4/5. I hear The Fountainhead is a lot better and less silly so I'll check that out at some point.

It's probably some 20th anniversary celebration thing.

There is no information regarding the differences between the two versions as of yet, thus one cannot make an informed decision, only an asinine one.

I enjoyed a lot of Fastlane but fuck me did Vince cut his ears off? Or has he just made so much money that he doesn't feel the need to make any more by putting a guy people actually like and will sell merchandise on top? Reminds me of what CM Punk said about being a millionaire who should be a billionaire.

It just seems like a bad business decision: Get behind the same guy as the crowd, Dean Ambrose, and turn him into a mega star who will bring in yacht-loads of cash right now, or fruitlessly attempt to get the crowd to like someone they're already bored of in hopes of - at best - a lot less cash a lot later? Maybe I'm an idiot and don't know how business works but it almost seems like self-sabotage.

That said the whole match I was wishing we could get Ambrose Vs. Lesnar and it looks like that's the plan for Mania, so yay?

I was kinda interested but this "beta" demo really put me off. It's pretty dull and exhibits some instances of inexcusably poor design in the core game-play.

E: Thanks.

Leviathan Wakes

5/5

After, I heard there's a TV show, but the trailer looked pretty awful.

When I left the starting area and walked toward the sea and saw a massive one built into the dock.
