  1. The Avengers film is almost certain to be 3D. Unless Whedon hates money. Which he might. Captain America? I hope not. Especially if its set in the 40s.
  2. I can't say I'm happy with all of the changes...I mean, the Mako wasn't perfect, but it was light years better than this scanning planets nonsense (though it's probably less irritating on the PC than the 360). I never understood the bitching about the architecture either, it made sense that there would be a pre-fab "colony kit" to send to uncharted worlds. The new level design often feels a little to "on-rails" for a western RPG, too. The combat is thankfully much improved, as is the party member AI. Thank God they fixed the inventory. An utterly fantastic game, the downsides are only
  3. And Emma Caufield! Joss Whedon can cast 'em. For the purposes of the thread: I'm catching up on Weeds and Burn Notice on DVD. I'm into season 3 of Weeds and it just keeps getting better and better. It's not perfect, by any means, but it's really damned good.
  4. I'm rewatching NGE after picking it up on the cheap from Best Buy a couple of weeks ago (Platinum Collection for $28!). I'm liking it a lot more now than I did when I first saw it, which seems odd, but probably speaks volumes about the depth of the work. Just absolutely amazing. Also trying to get Gundam 00, which I've heard some mixed things about, but mostly good. Hopefully it lives up to the hype.
  5. George Lucas has probably done more for independent filmmaking than anybody else. And he's right, somebody will pick it up. It's fucking Star Wars. If not, he can just start his own damned network.
  6. Not really WAY too young. He's about 30. I just don't see him as the perfect human though. When Jude Law was rumored, I thought he was a perfect fit, and he's only 35. I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up about Law though. There are budgetary concerns and this film does require a large cast. Has it occurred to anybody else that they might cast different people for the flashback scenes? Obviously they have to for the first generation of Watchmen, but even the second go from their 20's to middle age, and some change significantly (Nite Owl probably the most).
  7. New Spidey cartoon? Sweet. Who's the director for Ant-Man? (Err..Nevermind, it's Edgar Wright. Though they don't even have the script finalized enough to cast yet, apparently.)

    I believe it's in Step 4 of the checkout procedure (Review Order and Payment).

    Apparently, you can get $60 off a PS3 at K-mart's website. Enter this code: 004687478018 Basically a free game or extended warranty.
  10. Playing with Porn Hilarious. Especially some of the editing: "It's Triple X vs. First Graders." little girl: "This is my eighth time." At least the mother, though a bit naive about a lot of things, is actually, you know, PARENTING her children.

    So, she's like, in labor, in Jersey, in NOVEMBER, outside in the freezing cold. Is she trying to kill her baby?

    Would you trust that man with your PS3?

    They also produced more of the 60 GB model....so yeah. Hardly a "good sign" that it sold more, since there were more. Here people are paying the homeless to camp out for them. I hope these people die.
  14. I just don't think any of these will work. Maybe Ant-Man but the writing would have to be PERFECT. And well, that just isn't going to happen.
  15. It's not a patch. It's not even technically a mod since Rockstar does not actively support user generated content for GTA (as say Bioware does for NWN, and Bethesda does for Oblivion), and the mod is therefore in violation of EULA. It's even worse in the case of the PS2 and Xbox where the "patch" or whatever to get to it involves a rather tricky hack of not just the software, but in some cases the hardware of the consoles. Of course, heaven forbid somebody actually read their EULA. Which should protect Rockstar in this, and for some reason it isn't.

    Factor in the cost of the game (really 2, but one cart) and light gun and you're actually looking at more like $300 for the console after inflation. Also, Nintendo didn't sell at a loss, so the comparison is even more invalid as construction cost for the NES was still far lower. So really, even after inflation, you're looking at more than doubling the cost of the console. Right. Perfectly reasonable. Except, the relative cost of nearly everything else on the planet has gone down over time (except stuff with limited quantity, like land). So yeah, it is a relatively strange notion. I ag
  17. A new House Bill. From ArsTechnica. Making raters view EVERYTHING in the game is beyond retarded.
  18. Hilarious. How are you going to fine a 10-year old anyway? They don't have ID (other than maybe a social security card, but that's not photo). And no court has found a strong enough link between violence and video games because there isn't one. Movies are stronger, as though there is no interaction, the images are more realistic.
  19. I really hope there was at least a 3% margin of error. I also wonder how this survey was conducted. 87% of the time they give the child permission to buy a game does not equal 87% of the time an underaged gamer gets a mature title, the parent approves. Was there any sort of link to the study itself?
