I never played the Battletech tabletop wargame, but the same people who made the Shadowrun video games created the video game, so, I decided to give it a try.
I read books, play video games, and watch TV. I have opinions about most of what I consume that way. And I like to write those opinions down.
However, I find reviews saying ‘I love it’ or ‘I hate it’ pretty useless, so I do things differently. Instead, I try to look at why something does or does not work for me. Are the characters internally consistent? Does the plot make sense? What writing smells does the story have.
That way, you know not just if I liked it, but it should help you determine if you will like it. I hope.
In 2018, Patrick Stewart made an appearance at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention to reveal he would star in a new TV show: Picard. I watched the show recently.
I read the first Artemis Fowl book years ago, and found it refreshing. The movie… not so much, to put it mildly. Let’s have a look.
