The Kili/Tauriel thing is the only thing that felt out of place to me, I was really glad to see such an expanded view of what was going on in "The Hobbit".

Limiting it to the contents of the 80-page children's book would have done it a serious disservice. I think given some time to digest that they may not be so reviled as they are now. I see this same lack of imagination permeating every aspect of our culture.

the book is a lot longer than 80 pages - i have it sitting next to me. and it's reviled because of PJ's style. there's a significant subset of us tolkien fans that denigrate everything he makes because, simply, it's overproduced, soulless crap. story and depth take a back-of-the-schoolbus backseat to spectacle and it really shows with stupid shit like adding legolas and that chick, as well as making the story all about thorin when all of them were at best supporting casts to bilbo's story in the book.

i still think the best version ever made was the 1977 rankin/bass animated film. concise, compelling, perfect.

Can you fly into the danger zone while sitting at a console controlling a drone?

frankly they should turn it into a comedy like the SNL skit val kilmer did were iceman relives his glory days while at the controls of an airliner.

Illegal where? These guys are from Belarus. A country with a 'legally' elected strongman dictator and a close ally of Vladimir Putin.

Illegal where? Pretty much everywhere in the world that has contract law. If you think that them being in another country doesn't stop you from taking them to court in your home country, you've missed the last ~18 years of legal changes.

if they do business in the US, then US law applies. shame, it's a really fun game.

I blame you for a sudden craving to rewatch Gattaca

so conflicted about that film. conceptually brilliant, but i felt (and still feel) it lacked heart.

Teledildonics, on the other hand, is amazing.

I only just now checked your post Man your post was really informative.. I just wanted to thank you for that. No idea how you got that info but you really did have it right, so kudos to you ;)

Thanks! I didn't know this information would come out so quickly but I always post the rumor mill stuff I hear on Blue's News. Only on Blue's News. I worked for AMD a decade ago (writing white papers) but not long after that I transferred to NVIDIA (worked on what became Tesla) and then EA (java game coding for mobile). Burned out super quick but I got a good taste of the scene and it wasn't for me. I kept the contacts, though. Disclaimer: I do not invest in AMD, NVIDIA or Intel.

I wanted to elaborate on my comment earlier about the top guys being ballsy. I came across as saying they were defiant by making this move early but that's actually not entirely the case. They've been in talks with buyers (again, Samsung primarily) for about a year as I said, so them leaking it means they couldn't get the price they wanted. I stated that "AMD is overvalued" and that's true - however, people invested in the company (including top employees) want to get the most money they can. By leaking it early they are saying that negotiations failed and they are opening it to all bidders. This is good for consumers because transparency is always good, to explain my earlier comments.

is it legal for you to be leaking this stuff to us? i love juicy gossip but i wouldn't want anyone here to go to federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison for it. i know you don't work for them but maybe your contacts could get screwed.

at 4k you don't need AA tho i think, especially on a computer monitor. kinda speaking out of my ass, but the pixels would be so small that jaggies would be invisible. i play on a 1920x1200 27" screen, and i only do low AA cuz that's more than sufficient to get the jaggies away. i imagine if the pixels were a quarter the size i could turn AA off and not really notice unless i buried my nose on the screen.

My girlfriends mother is a vet who sometimes gets called out by the county to look at stuff like that when they get trapped animals and etc. I texted her the pic and she said its probably a tumor, apparently there is a lot of fibromatosis in animals in the wild.

Yes, I'm a veterinarian as well, and agree with her - it looks like a benign growth. Much too big to be a tick, and too smooth and rounded to be an abcess. Probably not directly dangerous to health, but is obscuring vision and could get infected. If it were a domestic animal, you'd remove it.

so the dark lord of mordor is an animal lover. huh.

you're the one predicting amd defeat before a single benchmark has been released but i'm the biased one? that's rich. maybe if this was a previous gen chip i'd let you get away with it, but this is an entirely new architecture, both the chip and the memory, so lets wait until there's at least some benchmarks before we declare the war over shall we?

all that buildup and speculation just for him to be shanked like a prison inmate? bad storytelling, or it's not over for him.

Fury X looks decent at the high end but it sounds like its not going to outperform the 980 Ti at the same price point. The Nano looks good on the value end but its not appearing for awhile, Global Foundries must be sucking ass for yields because the rollouts are so staggered. The other 300s are yet another rebrand and not worth mentioning, the 8GB card 390x is pointless considering the specs aren't there to drive the high end anyway.

Nothing revolutionary but at least they're trying to maintain parity. Th

and you can tell all that just by reading this press release? my god, your powers of deduction... they're... they're full of bullshit!

Same here - I'm 5'11" and 135lb.

Holy shit, dude, eat a cheeseburger Hobbit or something!

The cholesterol levels are too high for that particular meat, I'm afraid. Plump and delicious, but not heart healthy.

Elves, on the other hand, are pure lean protein. It's just catching the little blighters from a standing start.

heheh. i would think eating an elf wouldn't be much different from rabbit meat.

really this demands some kind of tactical cqb training levels. it would be totally badass to see a group of really pro players cqb'ing the shit out of pubbies and winning because of superior tactics and technique instead of twitch and map domination.

Looks pretty cinematic.

Although my nitpicking Star Wars observations have been channeled! ;). No cockpit view for the AT-AT looked to be on rails and you could only swivel the head instead of doing cool Ace piloting moves to shoot at speeders or kneeling down to unload Stormtroopers :\, automatic third person for tow cable, Rodians (reptilians) and Quarrens would freeze pretty quick without headgear (Quarrens also have to keep their skin "moist" to stay alive) Luke was not wearing his black tunic at the Battle of Hoth and should be in his Speeder/Hoth gear, some better hero spawns for this would be General Veers, Wedge Antilles, Han Solo, or Dash Rendar. Also, this appeared to be the attack closer to the hangers and Ion cannon, rather than the Generator frontline with the first wave of AT-ATs.

Not to mention, they were doing orbital strikes, but the shield generator was fully operational!

something was bugging me about this video and that nailed it. if you can strike from orbit, there's no point in landing ground units, which was the whole point of the shield generator and the entire level.

no news on the oculus stuff over the weekend? there are videos of the oculus touch which looks really impressive, also mockup of the retail rift.

Well, E3 hasn't even officially started yet, so they're probably hedging their bets, want to blow the doors off with the most people watching. Probably tomorrow.

no i meant no news HERE. oculus released plenty of news over the weekend so i was surprised there was no mention of it here.
