Kamen Rider Drive – What’s in a Name? Driving Drive Driver, Drive.

This is something that’s been on my mind a couple days now and I just wanted to get it written down while it was still there. A couple weeks ago the first episode of Kamen Rider Drive aired and I, like several Kamen Rider fans, was a bit skeptical about the whole car theme as opposed to a more usual motorcycle, but after watching the first few episodes I think I realize where the underlying theme behind it all is. As usual it’s hidden between puns and special effects.

Dungeons & Dragons, 5th Edition: A review by zedarkknight

The latest edition of D&D is finally out. Most people reading this blog are at least passably familiar with the concept of D&D. If you don’t know D&D is, it’s a role-playing game, and pretty much the first of its kind. Players of the game write up in-game avatars using number stats to describe what they can do, and then play through adventures by making decisions for those characters: Do I go left or right? Do I fight the dragon or try to sneak past? Will I give my money to the local temple or spend it on spirits and negotiable affection? The players are lead by a special player called the Dungeon Master, or DM. The DM’s job is to run the game, adjudicate rules, decide the actions of monsters and villagers, and decide what to do about special situations.

So what does the Overencumbrance blog think about it? Find out under the break.
