  1. The wagon gameplay looks really weird. Like a mobile game?

    What I didn't like about the first game was the extreme Random. To me it often felt demotivating, because you could have a really good run and then suddenly everything goes down the crapper and you had no control over it.

    If you end up liking that series, I'd also recommend One Spring Night, also on Netflix. A couple other possibles:  Chocolate and My First First Love (sappy title but...)

    And yeah, a lot of k-dramas on the lighter or heavier romantic side sometimes have a lot of their version of slapstick (sometimes hilarious, but sometimes cringe), either as main or some side character subplots. Some of them are an oddball mixture of slapstick, romance, and super tragic circumstances or a serial killer plot all in the same 16 episodes. >.>  Farther back in time you go, the more "teen comic book or soap-opera melodrama" you may encounter (Boys Over Flowers is infamous in this regard) and their tv cinematography will look cheaper and rougher looking.  K-drama's have evolved a lot in the past 10-12 years.

    Finished Because This Is My First Life and I think it was pretty nice. The ending had me rolling my eyes again (with suddenly his old girlfriend showing up), but at least it wasn't as crazy as all the unbelievable connections in Her Private Life.

    I will check out One Spring Night next, I guess.

    One thing that made me wonder is ... do really all the houses have electronic locks / keypads or is that just a movie thing? Going by what I see in the shows, it feels like South Korea is like 30 years ahead of Germany when it comes to technology. 😄

    You see, the problem with adaptations of big games like Uncharted, that those games just borrow from movies. So when you adapt those games you kinda just steal from better movies that were made before. Huh, looks line inoffencive watch it on netflix film. 

    I think the Nathan Fillion version looked much better.

  4. Bloodborne is awesome. At the time I was pretty tired of Dark Souls games, because I spent countless hours in them. But Bloodborne mixed up the whole thing and removed the passive combat with an active combat system. Sounds minuscule, but it has a huge impact on how you play the game. As a souls-veteran you really have to re-learn everything because of this.

    Yeah, that was a cute k-drama, I mostly liked it as well. 
    There are some very good K-dramas. A lot of them are somewhat fluffy/comedic or melodrama romances - which I definitely enjoy from time to time and K-dramas do it so much better than the US - but there are also the more drama or thriller/crime types that are very good.  Misaeng (slice of life) would be one and last I looked it was still on Netflix. If you want to stay with lighter relationship or general fantasy fare: Because This Is My First Life is sweet (but not very slapsticky).  Anyway, there's some good ones, from wacky to serious, from the past 8 years or so ... but most aren't on Netflix.

    Yeah, I tried a few first episodes of other shows, but they all seem a bit ... over the top. I'm not really a big fan of slap stick.

    Watched the first episode of Because This Is My First Life now and really liked it. Will definitely continue with that one!

    good show

    was expecting more shipper fuel

    I didn't like s1 because it felt like a copy of Final Space, with way too many references to old Star Trek stories. Felt like they tried to abuse nostalgia to the fullest for views.

    Now with s2 they seem to be cooling down a bit from that stuff, which makes it better in my eyes.

    Funniest bit - "The 4chan poster says the leak is intended to "foster more disruption and competition in the online video streaming space" because the community is "a disgusting toxic cesspool".

    Some streamers are making good coin -

    For some reason some people are OUTRAGED at the money they're earning.  I guess they don't watch pro sports 😛

    To be honest, I thought they were making more money.

  8. I have watched my very first K-Drama this week: Her Private Life.

    It honestly was pretty good... until 3/4 of the show, then it was completely falling apart because they had to throw in the wildest coincidences. Makes me sad, because it was really great up until that point. They should have cut out the last 3 or so episodes to make it better all in all.

    Also the product placement was kinda funny. "Ok, but let me fill my stomach  first!" *proceeds to drink a bottle with very clearly visible name and logo on it*

    Now I kinda want to watch more of this stuff. Maybe this will be my new anime, now that I have seen most of the interesting stuff in that area.

  9. I looked closer at the rats game and now I'm not that sold anymore. They really just put rat and roaches and whatever animal heads on human bodies and that's it. It's really just a different skin for human models. Would be cooler if they had custom animations or at least claws and stuff. Like, if you check their kickstarter, there are boot prints on the logos -- should have been some rat feet prints or whatever.. you get what I mean.

    So tl;dr - looks kinda meh.
