If you want to take them game and then mythos seriously, you can do that. You can absolutely do waste your money like that.

I don't see how playing a game I enjoy immensely from a series I've enjoyed for over 15 years is a waste of money to me at all. To someone else new to the series, maybe. But then why call it a waste of money if they don't want to in get into the past games in the first place?

But this is a game where you can sabotage jeeps with horse poop and launch its screaming passengers into their sky on balloons. My advice to anyone worried about jumping in blind is to just roll with it.  Roll with it in whatever way you want.

Solid advice and definitely some cool examples of the fantastic world created here. As an aside, earning the ability to have D-Horse poop on command through 'loyalty' is utterly hilarious and it's effect on jeeps is the reason I got an S rank on a particular mission.

Let's talk about "A Hideo Kojima Game"

I'm not one to going making grandiose statements, but it's safe to say that after only playing about 6 hours of this game that it's quite possibly the greatest action/espionage game of all time and definitely the greatest in Kojima's catalogue. The held no punches in the features, means of approach to missions, the sense of freedom and the feeling like you really are a one-man-legend from the past rising again.

I'm also bound not to be the only person now avoiding any and all spoilers for the game, so if you're planning on posting anything about events in the game, tag spoilers with either a mission, location or chapter name so you know not to read it until after said description.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E

The overall feeling I got whenever the editing techniques and writing of Guy Ritchie came through in either montages or drastic reveals was that he'd really lost respect for the audience and was simply patronizing them.

The sliding cuts were there just to fill time and make a mundane sequence look pretty. Worse though were the 'flashback' reveals which seemed forced and sometimes only covered events purposely left out of scenes not even 5 minutes prior.

It's hard to pick whether or not I liked this or Kingsman more. While both had great choices in style and design, I think both dropped the ball a lot more than they kept it in the air.

2.5/5

I have to book leave now since I'm in such a small team, so I'm going to book the 1st to the 15th and then figure out trips from there. It's also likely I'll be dropping into the ACT at the end of any trip to visit some other people I know outside of you fine internet folk.

The first rule of improv cult is reference as much pop-culture as possible if you don't have any original ideas.

Yo, who's up for a meet in this fine year twenty-fifteen? Better to get it done before the country tears itself apart.

Caught up on episode 6, 7. Some brief rapid fire thoughts below.

I am extremely fond of how Hannibal managed to become so well dressed after getting free. Bound to his aesthetic to the end.

Also, the commitment to keeping with the books (mostly) is commendable. So long, Mason. You definitely out-shined the film performance.

Honestly that ending could have been it's own season finale.

Now on to episode 8.

You bet your bottom Dolarhyde this is gonna be fantastic. I will miss the food, though.

Wait, forget I said that. Figures they'd find a way.

"Colons lose their novelty when overused." - Fuck I forgot how much I missed you, Dr. Chilton.

On another personal note, I want Will Graham's beanie.

That entire sequence where Will walks through the house prior to the flashback is a phenomenal piece of theming on par with earlier episodes of the first series. Not a word is spoken, but so much is said about Will falling back into old habits amongst so much more.

Is it possible to be re-hooked on a show multiple times?
