I've wanted to see The Last Jedi ever since I got out of the theater for The Force Awakens. Arguably, I've wanted to see it ever since I knew there was such a thing as Star Wars. You know me; I've wanted people to ask hard questions about these fucking Space Wizards from the jump. It seems like we might be getting there? Anyway, it's out next week and that seems a little crazy, but I am "not mad at it."
It technically starts showing before the 15th, a day we call the 14th. So the day of our Dinner is also when this thoroughly desired cinematic ordnance is fired, which is an invidious scenario calibrated to generate "feelings" of various kinds. I've sworn them off, myself. But there are those still in their grip.
The Child's Play Charity Dinner & Auction which Mike Krahulik will most certainly attend is Next Thursday, and it's been a good time since its inception. We've got all kinds of treasure, an amazing cross-section of the gaming community, Old Stove Brewery has offered up another keg or two of Zagernezzar Ale, and of course I will try to find my suit which may still be in the trunk from last year. Tickets for individuals and groups are still available.
Also! I got my wish, and I'm gonna get to play some Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on the stream with my friend Mike at 2pm PST. I understand that if you put an enemy into a Break state, you can then Topple them which allows you to use an ability that can Launch them which enables potent Slam attacks. I don't 100% know what the fuck any of that is but I would like an opportunity to find out.
