I picked up Ziggurat dirt cheap on a steam sale once and it stayed untouched for a long time. A couple of months ago I got an itch for roguelikes and finally dug it up, remembering that Jeff really liked it. And, man, that's a super fun game. I still haven't unlocked everything, but I'm not planning to leave it until I do. A perfect game to have around and make a run or two every once in a while.

Jeff Bakalar, Samantha Kalman, Austin Walker, Danny O'Dwyer, Mary Kish, Jeff Green would be a good start.

Then maybe Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron for that extra star power. Dr. Tracksuit would work equally fine.

Bone Tomahawk

3/5

I knew nothing about this movie going in but a western/horror with Kurt Russell and Patrick Wilson sounded tempting enough. Also, the reviews weren't half-bad. The plot is pretty simple. Some shadowy creature-like people causes murder and abduction in a small dusty town. Sheriff Kurt Russell and crippled husband of one of the abductees, Patrick Wilson, gathers up a small party and sets out on a perilous rescue mission. By this point I love this movie. Great mood, good acting, and an interesting mystery to keep my curiosity up.

Then there's this long and slow middle part of the movie that is more about surviving the hostile environment. I have nothing against slow story-telling with a long build up. But this movie is 132 minutes long and most of it isn't about the thing that makes it fun and interesting. It's structured a bit like The Revenant. Only the beginning and end is closer to The Hills Have Eyes. To me, it was a bit disjointed. And it feels like some scenes repeats in a very similar fashion without moving the story along.

I still liked the movie enough to recommend it. Most characters are believable and well acted. And I just love a good western setting.

(A small warning, though. Some scenes in this movie are extremely gory.)

I'm in the same spot. I liked Borderlands 1 and loved 2. But the Pre-Sequel just looks bad somehow. Whenever I'm tempted to pick it up I play a few hours of Borderlands 2 instead. Need fulfilled.

No. There was some minor chuckle moments but overall it was pretty flat. I watched the archived version the day after and I started to skip forward a few seconds at times just to get past some segments faster, and then the show was over.

The whole GB show was like the intro and outro to a normal length GB panel. No meat whatsoever. So it's just a mild humor and announcement show now, I guess.

The Cards show just wasn't my taste of humor but I can't fault it for that. Cards Against Humaity is wildly popular so they should probably stick with what they're doing.

@bojackhorseman: Well good luck either way. If you do a character centric piece, who is the character? And if you do parallel stories, do you know enough?

I wish you good luck but sounds very very very hard to balance. I wont say you can't do it, but concider it 50-150 times before you think you're done.

The topic is great, though. Is the idea that you're "watching/being backstage to" a Maher-like show? Nope, needs to be sharper than that.

Oh, that's a huge loss for gamespot. So the only two GS people I know (care) about now is Mary Kish and Peter Brown.

Let's hope for The Point East.
