The place for conversation that doesn't make sense to talk about in any specific game in our list. Think of General Discussion as a "catch all" for conversations about gaming, game culture or anything else worth sharing.

Back this on Kickstarter!
Mystery Science Theater 3000 is the greatest show of all time. At least to me and a zillion other MSTIE's and the show is back with a new Kickstarter after being cancelled by Netflix after two great seasons. The plan with the new Kickstarter is to fund a purely fan supported show and move away from any kind of network so the show can exist as long as the fans want it to. I enjoy this model quite a bit and as part of the plan they want to create the Gizmoplex, which is an app and community based way to release the new shows with a live streaming model. It seems the new shows will also be created with social distancing in mind which I hope they drop more details on... Read All


Oh, I totally forgot about Star Trek: Picard, luckily a new teaser has been released, which you'll find embedded. Most of the minute long trailer has Picard speaking about how "the true final frontier is time" and that "time offers so many opportunities, but never second chances." After that, we see deck of cards on a table and the only one that's face up and out of the deck is a Queen of Hearts. It then mostly dissipates as then all we see is a black screen and all that remains is the "Q" part of the card. In this instance we hear Q (John de Lancie) say, "the trial never ends" and laughs. I guess it wouldn't be a ST:TNG show without Q!

TNG is perhaps my most favorite... Read All


The Falcon and The Winter Soldier currently has three episodes left. On June 11th Loki begins on Disney+ just a couple of days after Black Widow is finally released. There's a new trailer for the show, which you can watch as I embedded it in this post. There's new footage in this video, so I recommend watching it. It looks pretty cool and funny. Afterwards, I watched a quick reaction video by New Rockstars, which you can watch here: https://youtu.be/xJj3oVpl4ao There will be a breakdown of the trailer later, but for now Erik Voss answered a couple of lingering questions. For one thing, you can see Loki on a purple looking planet talking to a woman. At first, my... Read All


There's a new Black Widow trailer. It includes some new footage, including a very young person with blue hair (New Rockstars says this could be a young Natasha). If you're not familiar with Task Master, that character (in the comics) is able to copy the moves of someone he (or she) studies. One of the locations in the movie is Budapest, which if you remember Black Widow and Clint Barton reference a time there so maybe this covers it. The end of the trailer announces that the movie's release date is July 9th in theaters and on Disney+ premier access, "at an additional cost." I recently reported that to watch this on Disney+, you're going to have to pay $30 for it,... Read All


As a 15 year old basketball fan when Space Jam came out, and it having my all time favorite player (Larry "Grandmama" Johnson), I've always been a huge fan of the movie.

There's a long standing debate amongst fans whether Michael Jordan or LeBron James is the greatest basketball player in history (which often is split between generations. Gen X and older generally say MJ, whereas Millennials and younger often say LeBron).

I personally fall into the MJ camp, and therefore kinda have a bias against LeBron, unfortunately. He is far and away the best player of this generation, and I shouldn't let my "get off my lawn" attitude take away from how great LeBron is, but I'm... Read All

Captain America’s shield was destroyed by Thanos in End Game. However, Steve Rogers took a trip through time and we see him return, but looking much older with a different shield. It’s possible that while the original was made of Vibranium and the new one is made of Proto-Adamantium.... Read All

I've recently watched all of the Netflix Marvel shows along with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and other Marvel movies (some of which I'd already seen). I have some thoughts on those, but I might set aside that discussion for now as to be more current, plus I'm not entirely sure those shows... Read All


We've all played First-Person and Third-Person games, but this video takes a look into what a Second-Person game would look like.

The narrator defines what first-person, second-person, and third-person voices in writing is, and then shows a very cool example of what could be considered a second-person level in the game Driver: San Francisco.

A second-person mechanic could be an interesting thriller/horror game. Making a Friday The 13th type game, where you see your character from the point of view of the killer, as you attempt to get away (or fight back).

I found some fresh news about the upcoming Disney+ series for Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi. Indira Varma has been "reportedly" cast though no details of her character are available. You may remember her from Game of Thrones as she played Ellaria Sand, sister to Oberyn Martell who was played by Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian). The article also says that Ewan McGregor will return as the Obi-Wan we know from the prequelogy (that's what I call it) along with Hayden Christensen who will be playing Darth Vader.

I think this will probably be a really good show. The article states that "[t]he series will take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope." I'm looking forward... Read All


If you're not yet drowning in movie and TV show news, particularly ones premiering on streaming services, here's a new one for you. Marvel's MODOK will appear on HULU on May 21. MODOK stands for Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, so expect plenty of carnage. I'm not familiar with this character, so I don't have much to say about it. I did notice that MODOK is voiced by Patton Oswalt, who I've now seen in different Marvel and Star Wars related things. He was a part of S.H.I.E.L.D., in fact doubling or even tripling himself, it was cool. I like that someone who's obviously a fan of Marvel and Star Wars gets to be a part of those things. If you really want to see... Read All
