Cyprus Comic Con 2017 – Thoughts

So, Cyprus Comic Con day one has passed and now we’re on day two. I’m writing this at 9am after a nice little breakfast at a hotel fifteen minutes away. Brother slept like a log, but me and sister couldn’t really sleep. Dunno why. Breakfast at the hotel was basic. Ham, cheese, eggs, bread, cereal. Mini buffet thing. The hotel is super quiet. It actually mostly has older people in it. I assume most non-locals booked places closer or just went home.

It’s All Lilith’s Fault

I’m not normally a hateful person. I have strong dislikes for things, but I often don’t have the heart to say I genuinely hate something. But like everything, there are always exceptions, and after playing a little Borderlands 1 and 2, and seeing the end to Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel, I’ve found myself someone I can justifiably hate. Well, not just someone. Almost everyone hates the Claptrap unit in Borderlands 2, and for good reason. Being dragged through an icy hellhole for the lengthy duration of the tutorial area is bad enough without Claptrap screaming at me all the way through.… [Continue Reading]
