Well, it’s that time of the month again. Every so often (read: every week) I find myself unable to come up with anything clever or interesting to talk about, so instead I just rant incoherently about the miasma (big word which I’ve also used incorrectly) of things that pissed me off during the past month.
It’s just about right for a Thursday morning in what feels like the longest week I’ve ever had since the discontinuation of Ghost Pops – and possibly the week when they brought back the new, shitty version. So fire up the salt mills (not a real thing, also not powered by fire) and hit the jump to find out what’s wrong with everything you’ve ever loved.
Diving into the PlayStation 4 Pro may prove to be a bit tricky because of how little we know about it. We know that certain things are similar to the original PS4, like the software, the overall design, how it operates, but there are also things we don’t know at the moment. Things like, for example, Blu-ray 4K compatibility, or how backwards compatibility will function, or if it’s even capable of rendering games at, or near to, 4K resolutions. Today, we’ll go into some of that in-depth, as well as try to figure out what things might look like in the future.
WARNING: there be spoilers ahead. Don’t come crying to me if those spoilers ruin your day and/or life.
Last night, I watched the final episode of the first season of Stranger Things. I loved it. I loved the entire show. It’s excellent television, and one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. There’s no part of the production that I didn’t like: the cinematography is excellent, the casting is near-perfect, the acting is outstanding, the story is completely enthralling and the constant throwbacks to life in the ’80s are hilariously endearing. I mean, come on – the show starts with four kids passionately playing a game of Dungeons & Dragons. How was Stranger Things ever NOT going to be great?
That’s not why I love it, though. I love it because it’s driven by an overall sense of undying optimism that’s sorely missing from most mega-hit TV shows these days. Stranger Things never stops allowing you to be hopeful, and I love it for that too.
