Microsoft is buying Bethesda and now owns ‘Doom’, ‘Fallout’, ‘Elder Scrolls’, ‘Wolfenstein’ and a shitload of other titles.
Mamma mia! Microsoft is buying Bethesda, motherfuckers. And now the company owns, like, an insane amount of renowned franchises. I’d say shots fired in the fucking console wars, but it seems clear Microsoft is more interested in their GamePass subscription service.
It’s a Stephen King quote, friends! But it’s applicable both existentially, and to OL proper! Ya’ll are old friends that I have missed as of late. Lately, I’ve been eating an absolute speed bagging to my proverbial balls. Not even in a bad way, if you can believe it. Rather, just extremely long days sitting in a chair and staring into the void of a webcam while teaching. Immediately followed by a hollowed-out feeling of exhaustion when the daily gauntlet is completed.
Fall semesters are always draining, but they’re doubly draining in this new (and perhaps temporary?) digital world. Everything just flat-out takes more fucking time than it used to. Want to do group work? You can’t just print shit! Gotta assemble individual files for each group’s section, upload said files to Google Drive, check that they’re in the right folder, confirm that they’re shareable. Blah, blah, blah.
NASA has found evidence of fresh ice on Enceladus, friends! And, you fucking guessed it, this could be good news for the potential for life on the moon.
Tatiana Maslany was pretty fucking rad in Orphan Black. So, I got absolutely no problem with her being cast as She-Hulk in Marvel’s upcoming series. In fact, this casting gets me giving a fuck about the series.
The Japanese military is on one, friends. Like, in a good way. It has announced that it will be tracking UFO sightings. Fuck yes.
‘Final Fantasy XVI’ Trailer: Goddamn they’re going back to fantasy, and taking the crystals with them! Sign me the fuck up!
Out of all the shit they showed at the PS5 showcase yesterday, the Final Fantasy XVI trailer made my scrotum the tightest. Like, it looks so goddamn good! Dark, punishing fantasy. On an epic, epic scale.
Hey friends! So, with the start of the semester, I’m just flat-out fucking toast. We are gonna be streaming on just Saturdays going forward for a month or so. Fucking tired!
I mean, I was going to heartily and thickly sweat The Mandalorian‘s second season. But this trailer definitely gets the glands juiced a bit earlier than expected.
Hell yeah! There are signs of a possible presence of life on Venus. Now, we should probably pay attention to the word “possible”, right? I agree. But it’s still fun to get excited. I mean, no?
Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series is only going to be one standalone season. Fuck yeah, keep it tight and focused!
I love it tight! I love it focused! Thus, I obviously love the news that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is only going to run one standalone season. At least, as it stands.
