Why does Marvel feel it's ok for them to fuck with other peoples religions so long as they're not mainstream? Hey, why not make Jesus or Mohammed women and see how that works out for you.

Thor isn't a religious character, he's a mythological one. Unless you know people still worshiping Norse mythology as religion. I can't even find any genuine ones online.

Today is Odin's Day. Tomorrow is Thor's Day.

Anyway, I can't tell from the article, is this some chick who was worthy, or did Thor get turned into a chick, like Loki was with a big, but in-continuity magical event, or a (gag) complete reboot?

This is the stupidest lawsuit since the Soviet Union tried to sue the NHL because they, being responsible, via dictatorship, for their former players' training (often now on the Red Wings), deserved a cut of their former players' profits.

No, texting doesn't affect their grammar and spelling skills. Their grammar and spelling skills are atrocious, regardless of whether or not they text. Too many of them depend on spell-checking and grammar-checking to bother learning how to do either one by themselves.

Yes but autocorrect can be educational. I'll bet it adds up.

About 8 years ago, I hypothesized that, far from wrecking writing and spelling skills, regular texting would increase it. Some kids do over a hundred texts a day.

I haven't seen any studies, but it would be interesting to see standardized test results vs. decades past.

This is what he considers important to spend money on? Having real long-term stretch goals at a million dollars a pop shouldn't be difficult for any designer with his salt. Cannot wait for the crash and burn.


Can ya throw a couple of million to City of Titans?

"Our $49 million stretch goal: stretchy underpants -- yes, you will actually be able to pull underpants up over someone's head in an ultrawedgie! With bump mapping for railroad track micro-dingles!"

I have this preordered already.

Back when I was a young nipper playing Pool of Radiance, I would have given a testicle to play a game that looks like this. A little perspective is in order...

The turn-based tactical nature of the Gold Box games was awesome. DA 1 had this in spades. That was the game we were waiting for. I played that through 6 times.

Can't watch over my phone, but I assume "spammy" = button masher. If so (is it?) have fun with something not like either of those at all. (I do agree about the looks though.)

Hope they have a free weekend welcome back trial. This game had the shortest lifespan of any MMORPG I ever bought, about 2 weeks for me (and someone had given me 5000 gold to mess around with at that.)

No Man's Sky:

Still no clear idea of the actual gameplay. I like what I've *seen* of this game thus far, however I'm far too long in the tooth to have not seen a few smoke and mirrors demos over the years.

Yeah, this has no new footage beyond what we've seen. I think what they're doing is incredibly cool, but there does also have to be a game in there somewhere.

It looks incredibly complex, but if it's just for the PS4 (so far) I can't see gameplay being particularly complicated or straying from high action.

It would be sad to see all that procedural generation be nothing more than an ultra-cool tech demo for a background for a standard shooter where you are searching for upgrades to proceed further towards the galactic core.

As opposed to CNN providing apparently informational stories like "Type Ii Diabetes Tricks" or "Tips for dealing with arthritis" or psoriasis or high blood pressure, whose real purpose is to assign you to salable targeted advertising groups.

Monkey Parking sounds like a good idea, but they went too far advertising to hire people to drive around to take up spots and sell them through the system.

On the other hand I have little sympathy for San Francisco, government or the people who elect them, with rent control and needing a $20 million environmental study to build a new parking structure...and only maybe get to build it.

These are the same officials who make it illegal to be a good samaritan and put a coin in someone's expired meter, proving it's about highway robbery.

You can pause and queue up actions -- sounds like a real tactics game. Normally I see a string of adjectives, "RPG", "tactical", "strategy", "real-time", then along moseys "action", the rest disappear and I read "button-masher".

"Show Based On MMO Game"

Opening scene: A man in light armor runs up and shoots someone point blank in the back 3 times. The victim is slightly wounded and runs away.

Shooter: This gun doesn't effin' kill anything!

Well it entirely depends on whether the copyright has expired or not, right? Anyway, I'm just surprised this sort of thing doesn't happen more often.

It is kind of the limiting factor in games. Superhero games which allow general color selection as well as a letter on the chest, well, that's all you need to generate a Superman clone. Red boots, blue tights, red shorts, yellow letter S.

The closer a design system gets to complete freeform, the more cautious they have to be with the inevitable copy of copyrighted works.

City of Heroes had a secret (I think) costume or power code to generate a force field bubble about the hand like a Green Lantern might have. I never figured it out via normal costume or power sets anyway but I did see it a number of times. That plus generic green and black outfit plus capital theta on the chest, boom, Green Lantern.

I gave up hope on any new Star Trek series a while back. They don't want to water down ol' Captain Lens Flare's brand.

That's what terrifies me -- that this would be reboot universe not original. And in either case, more action movie-like, like reboot U, too, than more pensive, true, quality science fiction.

Of course it is Netflix so yappy dramatic interactions are the (cheaper-to-produce) norm. Or maybe they're gonna be the first internet content place to step up to the major league big 4 network investment time.

That's no way to get ahead in the gaming world.

Not the time to lose one's head.

It's a shame he wasn't more headstrong.

He'll never be the head of a major gaming corporation.

Is it supposed to be a sequel or a different type of game in this milieu, like a twitchy-leapy type buttonmasher?

"Begging your pardon, sir, but this is a teaser, not a trailer."

Or a rerun of 30 year old Empire and Jedi making-of footage and music.

This is interesting. One of my favorite games in the past was a hybrid RTS-FPS: Battlezone. I'll keep an eye on this.

As soon as I read "FPS-RTS hybrid", I thought of exactly this game too!

I recall being upset the game was fairly FPS-ish rather than me being able to place turrets everywhere and just hide and let them do the work.

I would definitely be interested in a game with a FPS viewpoint, but otherwise a normal RTS where you did little to no shooting directly. The fast and high leaping about the battlefield is also reminiscent of Outland with the wing jumpjet thingie.

The inventory system is very Ultima Onlinelike, where you literally distribute things in a bag manually, including sub-bags (which you can get by picking up your bag off your own dead corpse and putting it inside your own new bag lol).

I attacked a player thinking it was an NPC and then a guard came and slaughtered me with a rude comment. So it did feel hehehe very Ultima Onlinelike.

RUMOR: Is Marvel Canceling Fantastic Four Comics to Hurt Fox's New Movie?

they should just end this war, it hurts the moviegoers.

The comic books can go hang -- I haven't bought one in years, and the last time I did (Fantastic Four) I'm not even sure what was going on. Johnny, who "died", had just come back to life as everybody knew would happen. There was another Galactus attack coming with big buildings floating up into the sky.

Hulk, as usual, didn't even have Hulk in it.

I'm with the bulk of the population now -- these are fun movies.
