@kevboard Dunno, I feel like this could devolve into a philosophical discussion about the proletariat vs. the beta-bourgeoisie... Ok majorly kidding here :)

RE: Doctor Who
Just caught up last night, and yeah, just about everything felt nice and fresh. That score probably hit me most of all though. The Doctor was awesome, I think she played the amnesia bit of the regeneration really well, and I'm really looking forward to these companions.
Even the high-level construct of "Missing TARDIS" was a nice refresh, gives the series a nice Lost in Space-y vibe coming out of the gate. Really looking forward to how this all turns out!
RE: Fun/Dumb game Monday and Kyle's Friday streams
The most recent Road Trip stream was a total rollercoaster of emotion, and I was hooked the whole time. Whoever sent this game to Kyle is doing amazing work.
My lord, that composer SHOWED UP for the final race music. I enjoyed the music all throughout but that climax was such an epic thing to watch. All hail President Grease!
RE: Spider-Man (PS4)
Taking it slow has been my motto so far. Not that I'm not incredibly into the story, I definitely am. There are so many little things they do when telling a story that feel so good, I'm still just poring over them in my head, but I think I'll wait until I'm further along to gush about that. But multiple sessions now I've found myself booting up the game and just swinging for 30 minutes before even thinking about doing something progression-wise. I enjoy the combat so much that I find myself purposefully ignoring my health and dying just so I can go again and try for flawless. Sometimes I'll swing around and purposefully land somewhere random just to hear the epic music fade into ambient city sounds. The way the cityfolk go back to their lives after a chaotic landing, and how the music fades perfectly with it amuses me every time. Just the right number of people are excited to see me, but it's the ones that are so used to seeing Spidey swinging around and just shrug it off that tickle me the most.
RE: Favorite card (as in 52 card deck) games
My personal favorites are:
Gin Rummy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gin_rummy
Good for 2 players
Also 2 players, but more active and quick-paced than the others.
RE: Grandia 1 and 2 ports announced for Switch
Random story incoming, my only Grandia experience is playing Grandia Xtreme (because e's are for losers!). The main character was voiced by Dean Cain, who at the time I was purely familiar with as playing TV Superman. He didn't really attempt any kind of voice for the character, so the end result was watching this kid character with the voice of Superman running around having adventures. I didn't enjoy it too much, but back in the day I didn't have alot of chances to buy games so I really had to commit to the ones I bought. My other distinct memory was how it endlessly annoyed me that there was only one save point in the entire game.
