it is a kiddie show so i can excuse the nobody dying thing. as far as rebels vs clone wars, i thought rebels was the far superior work. the writing is so much stronger than when george had his greedy fingerprints all over the stories. i really dig its return to the 'pitiful band' of rebels vs intergalactic empire idea, and all the individual characters are so much more interesting and complex.

makes no sense why a two hopper to a different city would cost less than a direct flight to the first city. maybe this wouldn't happen if airlines didn't try to gouge customers like that.

A couple of days ago I found myself wondering when Cinco de Mayo is held. That was not my finest moment.

...or was it!

I decided to take a gamble and take my busted PS3, which was actually a Slim even though I had thought it wasn't, to Best Buy and hope they wouldn't test it for more than 5 minutes or so. (It'd run any disc for about 5 minutes then just lock up. It would boot just fine, however, and they kept saying that all BB checks was if it boots.)

Kid at the trade-in counter didn't even turn it on. Just took down the info and gave me my $175 bucks to use on a trade-in for an Xbox One. For effectively $175 plus ~ $30 in taxes, that was too sweet a deal to pass up.

So my Xbone is now sitting there downloading 490 gazillion gigs worth of updates. I remember those days when getting a console meant you'd just pop a game in and you'd be playing 3 minutes later...

do you just take it to the customer service counter? i have a low mileage 360slim sitting under my bed.

i find it amusing that his name is a near homophone for coward, cuz that's exactly what he is. he'll never back up his bullshit.

i doubt esports will ever go mainstream in the US just cuz our media lean heavily conservative esp. compared to the rest of the world. they'll abandon it before they put in the effort to get it right. starcraft has a really good internet esport coverage network though.

It would be a pretty major project to get a mobile version of Blues operational. The original site software is ancient, and was never designed for mobile. It has been hacked by Frans to do a bunch of custom things, but to refactor it so it supported both desktop and mobile would probably require migrating to a new platform. It would probably be 100s of hours of development time and cost 10s of thousands.

Might be possible to raise the funds with Kickstarter or something, but would also take tons of Blue's time to articulate what he needed.

in short, it ain't happening unless regular traffic spikes something like 10 fold. or blue wins the lottery, but then he might just give up the site altogether.

in that case FUCK YOU NATURE!!! EAT A GIANT DICK!

What if our fighter jets do fall behind China? Does it matter? What big player is going to screw with another nuclear power? Invading the US would be a complete nightmare whether our jets can dance ballet or not.

Besides in five years it's going to be all drones anyway.


It's not a matter of fighting China or Russia or whatever. It's a matter of who will they sell their new fighters to. The next time NATO countries want to fuck around in the Middle East, they don't want to be flying F-18s against whatever new 5th gen fighter the Russians or Chinese sell to them.

I'm assuming that's the case, anyway. I dunno.

Really? And when, pray, was the last time the US, China, and Russia were at war with each other? Oh right, never. And they neve will. The MIIC has been milking the taxpayers since Eisenhower left - and warned the public about. 70 years and trillions of dollars wasted - scratch that, stolen - from the American taxpayer for shit they don't need in conflicts that never needed to happen. But hey, enjoy not even being in the top 30 of living standards around the world now.


try reading his post before you post irrelevant nonsense again.

Or 140 million for a fighter jet that'll never be used.

I assume you're referring to the F-35. The cost is $1.5T for the entire program, or an average of $178M per plane. Is it worth 3.5 F-16s? They only cost $47M each.

Also, the F-35 is a dog. Say what you will about the F-22, at least it can do what it was designed for. The F-35, especially the VSTOL requirement, makes it jack of all trades, master of none.

f35 will be a useful combat jet whenever it comes into service, they've just waaaaay overrun the original cost projections. originally it was supposed to cost like $35 million per plane. with no alternative in sight, they pretty much have to push on with it if they don't want to fall behind new russian and chinese fighter programs like the pak-fa and j-20.

i dig that you know so much about it. i've been an aviation junkie since i saw top gun as a kid, but the first time i had to get glasses in 8th grade i knew the dream was over. still love talking about those pretty birds though.

George Lucas wants to build affordable housing on his land because ‘we’ve got enough millionaires.’

As much as I beat on George for making the prequels awful and fiddling with the original trilogy, I have to applaud him for putting his money where his mouth is and helping average people.

george may have become a poor movie maker, but he's always been a generous human being. for that reason i try not to beat on him too much.

News Comments > New Mass Effect Details?
6. Re: New Mass Effect Details? Apr 18, 2015, 19:11 1badmf
 
i agree. mass effect was and remains a great idea that wasn't perfectly implemented. it screamed space opera but all it was was an rpg-lite shooter with scifi art assets. it needed to be grander in every way - it needed a much more functional ship/crew implementation, a much more varied exploration side, more imaginative settings. how about ship to ship combat in the upper atmosphere of a gas giant? that's just for starters. mass effect needed to be ten times the game they put out.

but initial details of this new game are more promising in those directions.

i have something like 8000 games played in WoT and i can tell you the grind is cake up to tier 6 or so. you can get up to tier 6 in a week or less spending no money. after that it's a pain in the ass if you don't buy premium, but warships will be slightly different. in tanks, you're basically completely untenable if you're way undertiered, but in warships that'll never be the case because each class of ship doesn't really get larger guns or better armor as you progress, so each tier will always be viable and fun to play.

you should definitely give it a try cuz from the specs of some of the tier 6 ships i've looked at, they can be lethal.

the dialogue of the originals was always at least charming with Ford and Fisher delivering them with confident aplomb.

The original series was better, but even it wasn't the greatest where dialogue was concerned.


right, and a lot of the same lines were delivered in the prequels to catastrophic results. but coming out of the deliveries of the original cast they somehow became natural and spontaneous. i think harrison ford could make dr. seuss sound natural and spontaneous. come to think of it, i'd be REALLY curious to see him do Shakespeare, whether it'd be an unmitigated disaster or if he could achieve an american naturalness that no one's seen before.

i particularly remember leia's speech on the eve of the evacuation of hoth about the ion cannon firing several shots, how it was so long and technical, and yet she pulled it off like she was a professor teaching a class.

the lines as written were probably overly dense and verbose but the cast just made it come to life; something the prequel cast couldn't ever do. maybe it was that they had worse lines, but i think some of it is that they weren't as good as the original cast as well.
