v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Καλό μήνα - να και ο Αύγουστος!

Το ριμαδοκαλοκαίρι προχορά με γοργούς ρυθμούς.  Πρίν το καταλάβουμε θα είναι πιά Σεπτεμβρης και θα ήμαστε πάλι στα θρανία...  Καλό μας μήνα λοιπόν! :-)

Review: The Orville #4: The Word of Avis Part 2 of 2

The Orville #4: The Word of Avis Part 2 of 2 by David A. GoodmanMy rating: 5 of 5 stars More of a comment on both parts of this story: Interesting commentary on religion (in a way that only a comedy can do it). I did find the story a bit unbelievable - anthropologists converting from (essentially) atheists to the religion of the Krill just by studying their sacred writing, but it was

Review: The Orville #1: New Beginnings Part 1 of 2

The Orville #1: New Beginnings Part 1 of 2 by David A. GoodmanMy rating: 5 of 5 stars More of a comment on both 1+2 of this series.  Interesting story. Gives a bit of background on the "federation" equivalent in the Orville universe.  It's interesting that the old-style uniforms had rank insignia like TNG ;-). We also get to see sentient fowl, which was very Mighty Max :-). Some

Review: DS9: Hearts And Minds

DS9: Hearts And Minds by Mark A, AltmanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars It's interesting how much play the gamma quadrant gets in the comics, yet in the series I don't recall them ever making such a big deal of it (most issues on DS9 seems alpha and beta quadrant related).  This mini-series is all about the Klingons and the Cardassians butting heads because the Romulans make it look like a

Far Cry 6 trailer

Another Ubisoft trailer, this time for Far Cry 6. I finished Far Cry 2 a while back, and went back to the original before I retired my Xbox 360.  I guess  I need to catch up with the games (probably after my dissertation is done).  Giancarlo Esposito makes for a good bad guy (at least in this trailer).

Watchdogs Legion trailer

Seems like it's video game announcement time, and even though I have quite a few unplayed games left, I am always looking toward what's coming up next!  Heck, I haven't even started Watchdogs 2 yet!    Anyway - Watchdogs Legion is coming out sometime this year and the cinematic trailer looks pretty good!  There's something very  "V for Vendetta" about this game.

Star Trek Lower Decks trailer

The trailer for the new animated star trek series is officially out (with the series premiering in a few short weeks). I wasn't really sure about this series when I first heard about it, mostly because it was associated with Rick and Morty (another animated series which I don't particularly like - the dialog is not for me). After this first official, full length, trailer, I am cautiously optimistic

Review: Star Trek: Voyager: Mirrors and Smoke

Star Trek: Voyager: Mirrors and Smoke by Paul AllorMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I always enjoy a good mirror universe story.  Voyager (like TNG) didn't have an on-screen mirror universe, but it's interesting to see that even in the mirror universe Janeway and crew were stranded in the Delta quadrant.  Faced with the prospect of returning to the alpha quadrant to fight a losing battle

Review: Star Trek: Discovery - Aftermath

Star Trek: Discovery - Aftermath by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars It was a rather interesting epilogue to the most recent season of discovery.Synopsis from Memory Alpha: Many Klingons, including Kor's father, decry L'Rell’s position and actions as chancellor as well as her self-appointed nickname of "Mother." Pike contacts L'Rell in an effort to build a lasting peace atop

Assassin's Creed Rebellion | Endgame Reached

One of the games that I've been playing periodically while watching TV, is Assassin's Creed Rebellion. The game is a mobile strategy RPG with all the regular fixings of a free-to-play game: a limited in-game currency that you use to play missions. The currency replenishes at fixed time intervals, or you can pay to get more of it ahead of the full replenishment time.The game draws from the story of
