Priorities

I was tinkering with RPG Maker MV last weekend, and wanted to see if I could create a character with red half-rim glasses.

Yep.

Wonders Never Cease

Turns out that there's a recent film adaptation of Heinlein's All You Zombies that reportedly doesn't suck.

All You Zombies was short, but very dense; there should be enough there to make a full-length film without cutting or padding.

Railroaded

Railroad Tycoon 2 and 3 are on GOG.

This probably matters more for me than my readers (if anyone is left...) because the Railroad Tycoon series has been unavailable in Australia for a decade due to licensing issues.

I bought them and downloaded the installers immediately just in case they realise it's a mistake and disappear them again.

The Expanse

Okay, that was pretty good.

But you killed the crew from explosive decompression, twice, in the first four episodes.  Also, your economics are skewed from reality in several places - by about three orders of magnitude.  Try harder next season, SyFy.


I haven't read the books, and the story moves at a fair clip, but if you have a passing familiarity with hard SF you'll have no trouble picking the threads up.  (One useful tip is that there are a few scenes where you won't understand what's being said, and aren't meant to - it's a made-up language.  Don't worry about it.)

It's nice to see a science fiction series where the most outre element* is a fusion reactor.


If you're looking for classic but not necessarily hard SF, SyFy also recently did this:


Reviews are, shall we say, mixed.  I'm not sure why they picked that particular story to adapt; it would have to be one of the hardest works of science fiction to bring intact to television.

And why call it the "Season 1 Trailer"?  Spoiler alert for a sixty-year-old book: There ain't gonna be a Season 2.

* At least, so far.

Make this.  


Only with Mugi in it.

Huh.  I seem to have discovered a genre.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Pre-Review

Good film.  Beautiful.  Loud.

Whether it's a great film depends on what comes after.  Time will tell.  For now, if you like Star Wars at all, this is worth seeing.
