@jaded Oh sure, they could run Maximum Carnage or whatever (although I bet you Carnage will end up being the generic evil scientist CEO guy from the trailer in the first movie).
But even then there'll be no personal connection. Peter won't feel guilty about the symbiote since, well, he won't have had a hand in releasing it into the world... Venom and Carnage will simply be just... villains to him, same as any other.
I feel it's a missed opportunity. Spidey plotlines work best when there's guilt involved.
BTW, if anyone is still playing FC5: You don't have to do everything before the game ends, you can finish things off after either ending; one ending sends you back to a point before the ending so you can see the second, and after that one you can go back and do even story missions.

Yet another edition of Vampire the Masquerade. Fueling no doubt another deluge of WoD cookie-cutter MUSHes this year.
As an avid player of the game, I too am angered by this.
Like, holy shit, staaaaaaaaahp. Enough widdis.

I really enjoy Lindsay Ellis's pop culture stuff.
I am also incredibly glad that I watched her breakdown of Bright which was a mix of writing theory and history of the film itself.
Man, I'm not sure I wanna see her tear apart Bright. :|
It’s fine to have guilty pleasures, as @coin says, or don’t watch it that’s fine. After watching her Hobbit breakdown I was legitimately kind of depressed, and not just because of the obvious sad-panda editing and framing she does at the very end.
Every Friday evening we run basketball runs at a court near work paid by the company, where coworkers and friends participate. Although we're all nerds some of those guys are pretty fit, and several are 10+ years younger than me, around the same height - some taller, some shorter... all good there.
Over the last few weeks I've been finding the game was getting easier. I can switch and defend any of these guys, get to my spots on offense to shoot or post people up more or less at will, to the point where I'm passing out of double teams so I don't feel I'm monopolizing the ball. Sometimes matchups are harder but it'd gotten to the point where I was wondering why they are letting me get away with so much since they don't take it easy with anyone else.
This week we were hanging out after the game, and during the conversation it occurred to me... these guys aren't letting me do anything. I'm doing it. And since I'd never been in that situation before, it really hadn't occurred to me.
[Jessop] This my favorite LeBron story. During the Finals in 2014, the Heat locker room was filled to the brim with everyone huddled around his locker. A camera man literally moved me out of the way. LeBron saw. He looked at the guy and said, “apologize to her.” It was EPIC.
I'm still enjoying Riordan's stuff. His climax to the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard was a little bit underwhelming, to be honest, and The Trials of Apollo, while conceptually interesting, don't really do it for me. But they're still well-written and I continue to enjoy the world he's built. I think the problem is he spent so many books with Percy and Annabeth as the main characters that he hasn't really been able to build anyone else up to that level. When Percy and Annabeth show up, there's a different energy in the narrative. I can't find if he's announced anything new after The Trials of Apollo (other than his Rick Riordan Presents imprint) so that's odd.
I started class again so I don't even have time to read, anyway. Bleh!
@derp I'm trying to keep the faith. I objectively know it is completely stupid of me to do, but I am.
It is not remotely easy.
Here's hoping you're not two years into this bullshit and your version resolves way faster. :/
@kay That first link is the one i was using, or at least the base of it. I've altered some things, adding my own spices (I just got a 3oz bottle of Habanero powder) Mostly It's finding the sweet spot.
That second one looks interesting, havent tried boiling the marinade beforehand.
