Star Trek…again (In which I am angry.)

It is official.  I am done with the new Star Trek.  DONE.  I love Benedict Cumberbatch, but casting him as Khan?  No.  Just no.  Let’s just completely erase that Khan was Sikh and make him a white dude.  Ugh.  There are no words.  That’s not true, there are words.  Just not from me.  Marissa Sammy at says it all.  Melissa McEwan at Shakesville brings up some other problems as well.

I’ve talked about my issues with this Star Trek reboot before, but this really takes the cake.  It may seem ridiculous to some, but it does make me angry.  There is so much to love about Star Trek but JJ Abrams has erased it all.

The Sims

So…I’m sorta kinda addicted to The Sims.  (What video game am I not addicted to…besides FPS’s.  Bleh.)  I love TS3 and TS2, and some days I feel like I want to install TS1 again because Makin’ Magic was the best expansion ever!  Ahem.  So a new neighborhood is coming out with dragons.  Did I mention it has dragons!?  And so even though I really hate EAxis sometimes (pretty much every day) I just know I’m going to end up throwing my money at them because dragons.  Ugh, I’m so weak.

They have also announced The Sims 4, which at this point I’m actually pretty ‘meh’ about because I just now got TS3 working as it should.  (I’m looking at you EAxis…fix your shit.  Seriously.)  Again, I’m so weak.  I actually held out on getting TS3 for a good year, which is frankly a miracle because Sims.  Have I maybe mentioned I’m weak?

Of course, there are so many games I want and don’t have yet, such as Bioshock Infinite, Dishonored, and Infamous 2 (I still don’t know why I don’t own that game yet).  But then GTA 5 is coming out and even though I’m pissed that we still don’t have a female protagonist (hey Rockstar, the ladies like to shoot things up too!), I’ll still get it because weak.  And I’ve successfully depressed myself.  Some Sim torture ought to fix that right up.  😉
