Against all odds, apparently Deadpool doesn't suck. Guess I have to go see it, now...

no joke, it's not just not sucky, it's pretty awesome. you know how the trailer is surprisingly badass and entertaining? the whole film is like that. i know, color me shocked, but i thoroughly enjoyed it. this is the marvel film for all of us who like to appreciate the absurdity of life.

And (finally) rated-R movie. Sick of kiddie movies.

Also, fuck that smug prick Shkreli. May he rot in cell.

Federal regulators rule that Google car’s computer can be considered a driver.

The court ruled corporations are people, so why not the computer driver of Google's car too? The question is, will it go to jail when it runs someone over? Wait, corporations have completely fucked over millions of people with no repercussions, so the Google computer should be just fine, regardless of what happens.

Oculus Rift will ship with four-month Unity Pro trial.

Why, exactly?

Part of the problem is the cost, since Netflix sets the bar at $10/month, and offers a larger, more diverse catalog than HBO, even while HBO offers some of the best TV shows ever made.

The other problem is that it's only available on Apple TV. I might consider getting HBO, even at $15/month, but there is no way I will ever own anything made by Apple. So I think that's slowing adoption.

Lastly, I think the big HBO fans are already getting it via cable.

Let's review. The HBO Now subscriber is:
1. The person willing to pay $15/month for HBO
2. Who happens to own Apple TV
3. And who decided to cut the cable very recently.
4. Lives in the USA
5. Has a decent internet connection

800K subscribers sounds about right.

Seems reasonable enough.

@Darks. How do you think they (or any site for that matter) should make money? Don't you think they know they've got a highly technical readership and cultivate their ads to avoid malware, like the way Blue does?

All that being said, I basically stopped reading Wired last year because the content just wasn't interesting any longer. A few times a year they do put out an excellent long form article though.

Ah, cool, they made it. WOuld have liked to kick in, but I'm broke right now.

Congrats to em!


Yeah, I thought what they were doing looked pretty good and different from the norm. Not sure when I'd ever have time to play it, but I liked what I saw and heard. Hope they can use some of this money to fix those walking animations though...

Oh yeah, if this means that SQ42 will at least get released, then woooot.
I dunno. The script and acting of what we've seen so far have not inspired confidence that it will be good.

Fake Flash update malware targets gullible Apple users.

The word "gullible" in this context is redundant.

That's a pretty cool cinematic.

That being said, is there anything that this game will do that the endless iterations of SF IV didn't do? I play IV on occasion, and it's still holds up.

drink budweiser

Yeah, I'd love to know much Peyton got paid for that. Dude, you already make a fortune, do you really need to shill at the Superbowl? And it's good to see Bud promoting rampant alcoholism in spite of their preachy bullshit ad with Helen Mirren. Sorry Helen, we're not all multi-millionaires who can take a limo everywhere or have access to public transit or even cabs.

Wow, XCOM is that popular? I couldn't get into the original DOS versions. I wonder if I will like the newer games. Are there playable demos of any of the newer XCOM games?

I won't play XCom2 for a while, but XCom Enemy Unknown is fantastic. It's updated for us older folks that don't have time or patience to worry about the super detailed stuff from the first game like facing and such, but still want that turned based XCom feeling. Put in about 40 hours and really loved it. And the Long War gets you dozens more hours out of the game. Runs on fairly low spec machines too, since they also released it for tablet.

Yeah, this is pretty much how I thought it'd play out. Cam is too young and unseasoned. Things don't go his way and he gets unfocused fast. He has all the natural talent in the world but he has to learn to slow down, calm down and take it in stride. Otherwise he's going to continue to come up short as soon as they get behind the 8 ball. Like I said last week, age and treachery will prevail every time.

I was hoping to see a great defense vs. a great offense. I guess it's true what they say about defenses winning superbowls.

i always bought IW's games for the campaign first and multiplayer second. the guys at respawn probably have the pedigree to put together something really solid.

halo: nightfall was produced by ridley scott and defiance had a 100 million dollar show budget and fizzled. keep chasing that transmedia empire dream boyos.

Yeah, I thought the MW1 & MW2 campaigns were campy fun, like playing an 80s action movie, both done by IW. Even the QTEs were well-integrated, like using the ice picks.
