  1. Yeah that was a good plan. Season 1 is definitely up there for both me and my wife. We both already enjoyed Pandemic and this just ramps it up. Season 2 was a really good take on it too. I think how it was done was a clever retooling if what made Season 1 special. The only reasons 1 beats 2 for me is 1 was such a complete novelty and it’s hard to recreate that feeling and 2 felt a little bit rushed towards the end. Felt like they could have spread the last two to three months into four.
  2. Get Legacy, too. It’s a different game. Both seasons are fun and work well with 2 players. Still stand by Hogwarts Battle. We still play it. The expansion can be rough until you figure it out (and I have setup tips for anyone who wants them). One Deck Dungeon we also still play some. We just started that expansion. Harry Potter Perilous Pursuit is fun with two. But it doesn’t have a ton of replayability at this point (hopefully with expansions).
  3. Clowney Franchise Tag

    *alcohol. Alcohol brought life into this world. But at least Matthew Thomas Ryan had a good namesake, eh @pwny?
  4. Clowney Franchise Tag

    To be fair, this is @ET80 with a maxed charisma. Just maxed for him. It’s pretty middling for everyone else.
  5. Clowney Franchise Tag

    Don’t drag me into this circus. Keep my name out your mouth, son. Your mouth is writing checks your body can’t cash. Nobody puts baby in the corner.
  6. Favorite cover songs

    This is correct.
  7. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Definitely not Matt, either. He’s a radar tech.
  8. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Endgame

    So like, I know this is a spoilers thread, but it’s an Endgame spoilers thread. We ain’t all seen Spider-Man yet.
  9. Finally, he wrestled the superhero because he believed she wouldn’t use her powers. His whole point is that the only reason she can win is because she “cheats”. Without them, he doesn’t think she’d win. If you missed that, you can’t have been paying any kind of attention. She is only “better” in his eyes because she was unfairly given an unearned advantage, and without that, she is completely unspectacular. So he challenged her to beat him without cheating. That doesn’t undercut his intellect; it’s central to his whole point. And let’s not forget, the only reason he was going after JJ in the first place was happenstance. It’s not like he sought her out.
  10. Let’s assume there was an inspiration from MRA/incel sources. Is that a problem? You started this complaint by saying the writers were specifically going after people who complained about Captain Marvel (which is impossible) and The Last Jedi (which is so improbable it’s beyond ludicrous). Because they knew the show was “canceled” so the writers had to get their digs in on the people who complained. Except then you’re also saying the shows are possibly (likely?) going to Disney+, so are they even actually canceled? If not, there goes the impetus for your conspiracy theory. But now, the problem isn’t that the villain was maliciously targeted for vengeance, but just that he’s generic and boring and maybe a bit inspired by MRA/incel activists. So which is it? Is this a vicious plot to make a mockery of people who didn’t like The Last Jedi, a completely unrelated intellectual property written by people wholly unrelated, or is it just that the villain is cookie-cutter?
  11. Lulz. White-knighters. And you think we’re speaking from a script...
  12. Could’ve done that when you got a sads about JJ’s villain. Also, I was asking a question for clarity. Because that seems like what is upsetting to you. But good try though.
  13. He’s an overconfident, megalomaniac, with high IQ. That’s pretty common fodder for villains in superhero stories (see: like 50% of superhero stories ever made). You’re mad because he looks like an ordinary white dude and had like a line about JJ being feminist or something? Seems a bit of an overreach to say the least.
  14. If it’s imaginary, then why do you care? They’re not picking out anybody particular, in that case. Talk about getting up in your feelings about strangers...
  15. So you think Disney got its revenge on people who didn’t like The Last Jedi for superficial reasons by telling writers of a marginally popular Netflix show, under completely different and entirely unrelated intellectual property, to make their villain a stand-in for those same people, two years later? But also to make the guy a genius, which really undercuts the whole insult? And also make it subject to that spoiler I mentioned earlier? And then the show doesn’t get renewed prior to that season even getting released, but that’s not announced (and probably even determined) until months after writing and shooting for that same season is finished? That’s the theory you’re arguing here? I mean, there’s MRA angst associated with TLJ, but it’s not even close to the primary complaint people had. Gotta be honest man, this is a really bizarre take.
