Review: DC Star Trek: TNG: Return To Raimon

DC Star Trek: TNG: Return To Raimon by Michael Jan Friedman My rating: 3 of 5 stars This was OK.  You can definitely tell that DC didn't really know what to do with the characters and the universe. Everyone is really jacked - which is funny because Picard looks like a bodybuilder. Somehow data can feel, and Troy can feel him having feelings, and there is a married

TV - Dexter New Blood

 We recently finished the relaunch(?) of the series Dexter, titled New Blood (works on a variety of levels, I guess). When the original series ended, Dexter was last seen logging in Alaska. That ending wasn't really all that satisfactory. Not that I wanted to see Dexter dead, but it didn't really fit the character.  Now, years later, we see Dexter in upstate New York (without much explanation

De Blob | Tried

Tried in gamepass in May 2020This seemed like an interesting game - at least in premise. You arrive in a city that's just totally gray and devoid of any color, and you bounce around and make things more colorful.  In premise, it seems like a   nice game to get into a zen zone and just enjoy it, but in May 2020 I was working on finishing up my dissertation (or was I done?) and I

Microsoft's cancelled AndromedaOS

 The other day Windows Central published a look at Microsoft's canceled mobile operating system, codenamed Andromeda. This was going to be the next iteration of Windows Mobile, which bit the dust.  It's too bad, because I think that Microsoft had something there with the whole Metro UI, and they could have bankrolled the OS until it caught on, but the janky transition from WM7 to WM8 to WM10

Zone of Enders | Done

 A bit out of order in terms of when I completed this game :-).  I've gone back to try to finish disc-based games (so I can safely pack them away).  In December 2021 I finished Zone of Enders, which was part of the HD remake for xbox 360 (box art shown is from the original xbox).Plot from Wikipedia:The game takes place in the year 2172; mankind has colonized Earth's, Mars', and Jupiter's

TV - Lost in Space

 Danger Will Robinson!Here's another Netflix remake, and this one is quite good (compared to both the original and the motion picture of the late 90s).  The story (predictably, for anyone who had a vague recollection of the original) follows the Robinsons who are...lost in space.  They are part of a colonization project, and I guess people are leaving earth because we've 🤬it up...again

TV - Another Life (Season 2)

This one is a Netflix original where humans make first contact! Or, rather, someone makes first contact with us (the Achaia). After they land a ship (or probe) on our planet (which looks like a quicksilver infinity sign) and we set out into the cosmos to meet them. I guess we want to welcome them to the neighborhood?Anyway, we send The Salvare to make first contact, only to find out that the civilization

Far Cry: New Dawn | Done

Despite my annoyance at the ending of Farcry 5, I decided to take a little time off the game and then jump into New Dawn.  I finished July 2021, after I successfully defended my dissertation.I started off thinking that this was m'eh game, probably disappointed from the ending of FC5, but in the end, it was pretty solid. Started at the end of March, put it away until July when I binged it.The post-apocalyptic

Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Last Generation

Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Last Generation by Andrew Steven Harris My rating: 4 of 5 stars An interesting parallel universe tale. While it's interesting to see Sulu in the same space as Picard in this parallel universe, and the use of familiar mechanics of time travel to set time right, the lack of potential continuity makes this an interesting, but short, trip into

Farcry 5 | Done

A little more catch-up on games finished in the past year. This one I finished March 2021I picked this game up right after I finished Farcry 4. After being conditioned for the past two farcry games to seek out towers so that I can clear up the map (not to mention more than a handful of assassin's creed games), I had a big guttural laugh when I went to the first tower, climbed it, cleared it, and then
