  1. Thinking about getting Slay the Spire...until then the only game I can manage on my Mac work computer is Circle Empires...

    Berserk Spoiler Thread

    So....anyone still doing a re-read?
  3. Don't they only need five seasons? Seems like they'd get the last one to finish the story, even if they have to cut some corners...
  4. Really liked this episode, managed to keep it funny even as we saw Heaven is run by fools who are completely okay with eternal concentration camps. I was sort of hoping the Good Place would be empty of angels/gods rather than not filled with ineffectual/worthless ones...but it was a good analogy for people who are really nice but not actually good in a larger sense. One of the interesting things about S3 is how much of the universe we're seeing - the Void, Heaven's mailroom, and now the Pancake Hole. A bit worried they'll find a way to make it easier for more people to go to the Good or at least Neutral Place by the end, but the people in Hell will be stuck there for Eternity.

    Comics XIII

    I'm liking Die - it's interesting but admittedly not for everyone. Grant Morrision's Green Lantern is also good.

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    I have to admit I'm still trying to understand. Kellhus doesn't know exactly what awaits him, but he does know that there are a shit ton of Sranc between him and his goal. But he shouldn't have brought an army? It seems that he could have gambled on things playing out well enough by just bringing the Schools but this seems incredibly irresponsible. It wasn't even clear if the Intact would show up at the end. As for Seswatha sneaking into the Ark...it's not even clear if those passageways would still be there, and maybe my memory is failing but it isn't even clear what exactly happened w/ Seswatha sneaking into the Ark...I thought that story of just getting the Heron Spear was a bit fishy.

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    I'm a bit lost...so Kellhus was stupid for showing up with an army? IIRC the army was there, as Proyas said, to protect the Schools until they got to Golgotterath.

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    Ah you're right sorry I was thinking of Memgowa.

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    Hmmm, not sure of this. We, AFAIK, have one person who was saved by Gilgaol. IIRC Bakker said the gods save Who They Will...which makes me think anyone who is saved has to be completely caught up in the domain of the God. For example Sorweel was, in some sense, actually Yatwer before his death. As to whether all philosophers burn, I suspect you're on to something - IIRC both Anjecis and Malowebi were atheists. They chose...poorly...

    MCU - X

    The "A" made of metallic flotsam makes me think of Hickman's run. Though this is more about Thanos it makes curious if the Beyonders or Builders will make an appearance at all - perhaps merely as a hint of what's to come from the MCU...
  12. It was nice to have confirmation that someone, at some time, got into the Good Place. I'd the comedic elements in S3 aren't as strong, but the story telling, emotional beats, and intellectual questioning have risen. It makes sense that given we are talking about the vast majority of humanity enduring unbearable torment that it was gonna end up this way.
