  1. Hello World

    Video Games: Gears of Borderlands

    Resident Evil 3 Remake Confirmed With Release Date I can't believe it... I think this was the first game I ever played.
  2. I'll add that TFL has the best humor out of any fantasy series I've read.

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    Spoiler for Game of Thrones. I wonder how those people would react to the ending of TSA (if it ended with TUC).

    The first trilogy according to a comment he made on his blog. https://grrm.livejournal.com/262170.html?thread=15328538#t15328538

    Pretty sure GRRM read PoN and praised it a long time ago.

    You had me there for a second.

    The Haunting of Hill house [spoilers]

    I'm at episode 4 and this is exactly how I feel. I think this show is liked way more for the sob story than for the horror, which is just a couple of jump scares in each episode.

    Wasn't there a thing about the Inchoroi filling the "wells of the aborted" with their own dead during the Cuno-Inchoroi wars? I thought that was their first attempt at awakening the No-God on Earwa? Or was it just about grafting the ability to see the onta?

    I didn't know there was a new site... I guess https://www.rscottbakker.com/ is just going to remain stuck in WLW times indefinitely. The new site looks pretty cool though.

    Richard Morgan + Netflix = ALTERED CARBON TV series

    That would make sense I guess.

    Anyone know what the deal was with the black guy who spoke to Tanaka and Takeshi in VR? Was he being set up for a future season?

    Yeah, I didn't buy the romance between Kovacs and Quell at all and the fact that they made a big deal of it in the final episode was more disappointing. Some negative points: The actress playing Reileen was terrible in the final episode. The way she spoke every word slowly and stressed everything was just... I don't know, was that supposed to be good acting because I'm not an expert? I don't think they made clear what was so special about the envoys. They were just a bunch of guys and girls training in a forest and the protectorate easily wiped them. Did they even do anything of import on the show? Because it's weird that they would even have a reputation. If Rei was a meth herself why couldn't she just have taken Kovacs out herself instead of having Bancroft do it? Someone said upthread that they liked the empowerment of Lizzie Elliot. You mean taking a broken prostitute and inexplicably turning her into an ass kicking ninja in BDSM outfit? Cool. I find it hard to believe that Bancroft could be brought down by killing a random person. The whole police department seemed like carbon copies of any cop show characters. Poe was great and Kovacs and the Elliot couple. I would watch another season because I liked the setting very much and it would be a shame to see go to waste like this. If they do make another season I hope they replace the showrunner and the entire writing staff if that's possible.

    The first thing that came to my mind when I saw him was this segment about anabolic steroids use in hollywood from Joe Rogan's interview of Dorian Yates. I liked the first episode. Some infodump bits in the beginning were a bit silly (the exchange about the 6-8 year old in an old woman's body) and I didn't like the actors playing the Bancroft couple, both characters seemed a bit cliche. Poe was probably the best thing about the episode. I'm not that eager to continue watching but I'll watch the second episode when I feel like it. I know people already watched the ten episodes so I don't want to read spoilers. Did Kovacs have a sister in the book?
