The Flash: GottaGoFastGottaGoFast

But WHO Is Speed? Ka-CHOW!

The Flash! He can really move! The Flash! He’s got an attitude! The Flash! He’s the fastest thing alive! He’s the fastest thing alive! He’s the fastest thing aliiiiiiive!

That’s pretty much it.

…What, you want a better explanation? Oh, fine.

Public Perception: They’re A Menace!

Like they say, there’s no such thing as bad publicity. Actually, scratch that, I’d say having your country put a price on your head as they announce their attention to draw and quarter you would be very bad publicity indeed.

Good news! Your approval ratings are in!

Bad news! The government hates you!

Good news! The people don’t!

Bad news! That just means they’re indifferent!

Good news! It’ll make for a pretty fun story!

Bad news! Three other characters think you’re a bad guy and are now hunting you down!

For what it’s worth, J. Jonah Jameson will always think you’re a menace. Even if you’re from DC. Especially if you’re from DC.

Fabletop Review: Critical Role

Like the difference between watching a streamer play a game for its campaign mode, and watching a streamer play the Legend Rank multiplayer build.

Even with video. Even with the internet. Even with game streaming. Who would have EVER thought to put Dungeons & Dragons online? I mean, who would want to watch people roll dice, play at acting, and discuss rules instead of playing online card games and gladiatorial shooting grounds?

Turns out, quite a lot of people, if Critical Role’s 115+ episodes of their first season are anything to go by.

Mentors: Meet De Mentors

Why not take the easy way out and make them your usual can of exposition and training?

Very few characters actually make it on their own. Even as loners, they had to learn from somewhere. They had to have a teacher, someone to actually teach them to acquire the skills and traits the author arbitrarily assigned to them.

Someone like a magical talking animal. Or a grizzled washed out wizard. Or the city streets themselves.

Or some weirdo on the internet giving introductions and tips to writing.

Hulk: The Jolly Green Giant Who Gains

Or, he’ll do that anime thing where he powers up spontaneously with his emotions.

He’s green. He’s mean. He’ll rupture your spleen. He’s powered by gamma rays, he’s got pecs for days. When he walks the earth will tremble, roadkill his enemies will resemble, everyone clench your buttcheeks and prepare for:

Wrong Hulk, or RIGHT Hulk?

Ret’s Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Like the majority of Japanese anime openings, the title makes absolutely no sense.

Yes! I actually review things! It wasn’t just a one time thing, I just happen to take my own sweet time getting around to things that are supposedly new! And yes, I enjoy videogames as well!

So, as one might surmise from the title, I’ll be giving my review of Horizon Zero Dawn, hopefully keeping it as spoiler-free as possible. Of course, I’m sure there’s no shortage of videogame journalism sites or random people on the internet proclaiming it’s a masterpiece, so what would I have to say about it?

That’s a really simple one: A review. I intend to tell what the game was, add my own impressions, and help you make an informed decision if you’re thinking of getting it.

Fabletop Classes: Meet The Druid

Quite a few plant-based spells can be cast out of thin air, and vines start popping up out of nowhere like it’s tentacle hentai.

Today I am branching out from another branch of my writing in something big enough for a category: Character classes! And today,  we’re looking at a certain group of nature-loving animal enthusiasts who are all about organic, sustainable living.

No, not hippies. Certainly not PETA. DRUIDS. Wait. I just made a branch pun. EXCELLENT.
