I discovered Star Wars when I was about twelve. My parents are not big science fiction fans, so my first encounter came through a video game: X-Wing. Last month, after some two decades of nothing substantial, a new Star Wars space shooter came out: Squadrons.
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.
2020 was a messed up year. It seemed that it would never end, but it did. So how was this year for me?
The Interdependency series is a trilogy of scifi books by John Scalzi. The three books came out the past few years, and I recently finished the third installment.
In Battle Chasers, a group of fantasy adventurers looking for mana is shot down by pirates over a mysterious island. As they try to regroup, they soon discover villainy is afoot, and are dragged into a war. A Nightwar! Okay, lame joke. Let’s have a look at the game.
