I work hard, play hard, and browse Wikipedia the hardest. I'm always reading about games. I have a modest collection and strive to promote that videogames are for every single person.

  1. Aquaman was actually pretty fun and aesthetically pleasing. It had its meh moments, but overall not bad. Second best movie of the DCEU, after Wonder Woman. (Note: I’ve only watched these and Man of Steel, and I only presume the other movies to be meh or awful based primarily on trailers, selected actors, and hearsay.) 🙂

    Also, “Thanksbuying” is now what I will call the holiday going forward.

    1. I meant the Aquaman comment for the next ep, which I listened to back-to-back with this one. Whoopsy…

      Also, I meant to mention that Tetris Effect is a visually stunning game while being fun to play. It’s quite an experience! The journey mode is challenging (but in a fun way!); I think the sudden level changes make it interesting, along with the different colors and themes. Such a neat, modern take on a classic game. Five stars.
