Yes, thank you on the first one. It drives me crazy that any time you bring up something that doesn't make sense (or worse, is problematic or has unfortunate implications), you'll get at least one person who insists that because the universe in question contains magic/super heroes/giant mecha/angels/whatever, it's… » 10/01/14 9:28am Yesterday 9:28am

In possibly the most exciting piece of video game news*, Pier Solar HD came out today for PS3 and PS4.

All they can realistically do is keep trying to make the Wii U sell better by supporting it with first party games, because a… » 9/29/14 5:42pm Monday 5:42pm

None. The show does a pretty good job of explaining the premise without infodumping if you start from season 1. It will spoil the heck out of the first series, of course, and you'll miss out on some minor context involving the previous adventures, but nothing that should make it inaccessible. » 9/29/14 11:30am Monday 11:30am
