Not really surprised, just really annoyed. Back in the day (old geyser mode), demos were freely distributed to showcase/tease a game. Now, everything is either behind a wall of some sort or in some me-too app store (origin, steam, etc).

At some point, I just give up after too many flaming hoops to jump through. Yes, I know it's just another piece of software to install, but it's completely unnecessary to try a game demo.

I'd prefer to buy a game and then play the cracked version to avoid the extra garbage.
Yeah, I miss the old days of free sample softwares.

I dislike comparing the two movies directly. One is pure horror, the other is action SF. I think that Ridley Scott made a brilliant film, I also think that James Cameron made a fantastic sequel. No one, and I mean literaly no one thought Cameron could pull it off, yet he did with flying colors. If I had to pick I would pick Alien, as the better film, but I hate to pick between the two..
Both first movies were the best.

Like you said, both great, not really comparable. One thing I'll say is that Aliens holds up better than the first one. Also, it's infinitely more quoteable:

Hudson: "Game over man! Game over!"

Ripley: "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

Ripley: "Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?"

Hudson: "Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen!"

Frost: "Hot as hell in here."
Hudson: "Yeah man, but it's a dry heat!"

Hudson: "I say we grease this rat-fuck son-of-a-bitch right now."

Vasquez: "LET'S ROCK!"

Drake: "Hey, Hicks. Man, you look just like I feel."

Hudson: "Is this gonna be a standup fight, sir, or another bug hunt?"

Hudson: "It's reading right man, look!"

Ripley: "Get away from her, you bitch!"
"Maybe it's like an ant hive..." "Bees man, bees have hives." "You know what I mean. It's like one female that runs the whole show." "Yes, the queen." "Yeah the mamma. She is bad*ss, man. I mean big." "These things ain't ants estupido." "I know that." --Aliens movie

Word just got out that Lauren Bacall died too. This is turning into one shitty week.
Last year was worse for me since many people I know died (two grandparents, a co(worker/lleague), and my parents' friend).

It's 2014, not 2004 so yeah 4 Mbps isn't broadband anymore. Maybe if they can't call 6 Mbps Broadband they won't feel they can get away with charging $50 for it (Looking at you Comcast).
Still better than 4 kB/sec.

I only finished the game with a cheat that turned off the weapon degradation and never ending monster spawns.

Shame that the original ending cinematic went up in smoke with a hard drive crash.
There was an original ending cutscene? What was it like? No wonder the ending sucked.

Specifically, purchasing a Vizio.

How so? I've heard all kinds of great stuff about them, and I love mine I've had for a year.

Ditto. What's wrong with it?

Yeah the 80's had some real duds and unfortunately several of them sold well, including the C64 - what a piece of shit.

The C64 was a great computer (reliability issues aside). Some great gaming times on that machine.
C64 was great. I was glad my next door neighbor had one so we could play a lot of games together with our joysticks (my Atari 2600 [ya I had that too] and his Epyx]. I miss those days and him (lost contacts since he went off the grid).
