i'm not even sure anyone cares about the Aliens franchise anymore... it's been so long.

And yet, there was a lot of excitement for Alien Isolation, and is for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront, which is as old as the Alien franchise.

As far as Isolation, people like quality. No one's been screaming for another AvP movie.


I can't wait. Hasn't been a good Alien movie since Cameron's take. Prometheus was OK, but it felt about as related as the corny AvP movies. Why can Dark Horse come up with great plots for Aliens and Predator, but Hollywood gives us shit? (Well, Predators was great. Much better than Predator 2, actually.)

Good, now maybe I can complete jumping puzzles on my main, who is a Charr. Before I had to switch to a human alt just to be able to see what the hell I was doing, since cameras for Norn and Charr are so messed up.

I bet it's an Android console for TV that streams PC games. Sort of a competitor to Razer's Forge TV. Which would be great, since I never want to buy anything from Razer again, but have been wanting to play some of my PC games on the TV. My laptop should be able to do this, but the HDMI out port is all wonky and loses connection randomly, not to mention it sucks power like a cyborg killing machine.

That power rangers short is awesome. I've never watched a second of power rangers but it wasn't that hard to pick up what was going on.

I watched about 5 minutes when I was younger but gave up because it was so, so stupid. This short was awesome, though.

Adria Richards, however, is what we normal, not-so-PC-it's-freaky people call a "bitch." She has a history of doing bitchy things to people. She wasn't afraid, she was totally looking to start something over nothing, just like she has done in the past. She a professional at taking offense to anything and everything she can find, and she finally had to lie in the bed she made. Boo. Hoo.

Wow, how did you guys not get the B and B twins in here yet?

I enjoyed what happened to Adria Richards. Clearly got what she deserved, learned nothing from her experience and probably will go the Patreon/Kickstarter route next.

Feel sorry for the guy who made a joke at the next table though. Clearly the victim of someone who has serious issues.

I won't go so far as to enjoy what happened to her. She didn't learn anything and came away more bitter and really more paranoid. She didn't deserve the level of vitriol that was aimed at her and I think 2 years of being unemployed or whatever it was according to the article is paying for all your sins and then some. I agree that we all lose in that scenario.

But in reading the comments in the article I linked to, there are people who argued, very passionately, that defusing the situation with a "dude not cool" and receiving an apology is "submissive" and "sexist". So resolving things in a non-confrontational manner is not a valid option for some people.

It's a totally valid option, they are just shitty people who choose to not use it.

Or, they could totally not be such delicate little things and not choose to take offense.

Or ... maybe "liberal" Hollywood isn't quite as liberal on some things as you seem to think it is? Particularly American "exceptionalism" and the American military?

Haven't seen AS but I'm curious to see how his death is covered. I thought Kyle's murder at a gun range was a bizarre example of poetic justice. The snake eating its own tail. Live by the sword ... die by the sword.

Yeah, helping out fellow vets who have PTSD and winding up getting killed by one. Such justice. Fuck his wife and kid too, right? There aren't words to describe the kind of person I think you are.

Don't feed than, man!


Sorry, won't happen again. He's safely on the ignore list with the other trolls. (Even Cutter isn't there, so you know I'm pretty tolerant usually.)

Ive seen the first season, loved it. Instense shit. Definitely planning on picking up the entire second season once its released.

Ditto. For those who don't know, it's basically a prequel to Treasure Island, featuring real pirates from history as well. It's fucking awesome. One of my favorite things on TV now. (Or, well, Amazon/Bluray)

Yeah I really enjoyed the creepy, oppressive atmosphere that both seemed to ooze. Ben Affleck was terribly miscast but the rest of it was pretty decent I thought. I also enjoyed Event Horizon but most people seem to hate it

I love that movie!

Fuck these clowns after Brink. They deserve it dirty alright, a dirty Sanchez.

Yeah, played Brink for their free weekend a couple years back. Quit after about 30m. Very frustrating. Agent X7 played it so we wouldn't have to. Thanks X7.

Take one of the free online CS clones and make it more accurate to pray and spray than to aim. Add in some ass graphics, take away support for anything over 1080p, and shake. Dirty Bomb.

I had hopes for this, but Splash Damage should just give it up.

Hang on there, because Joss Whedon got a writing credit for Alien: Ressurection, but they blew his script to shit when the flimed it. Sort of like the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer script. What the writer writes and what makes it on screen are almost always two very different things. Whedon's script for Alien was actually pretty damn good. What ended up on screen was shit, and Whedon has been quoted as saying that.

Just like Fincher's version of Alien 3 wasn't nearly as bad as the version released theatrically (both versions are available on disc).

edit: Although it still committed the unforgivable sin of killing Hicks and Newt, and eventually Ripley.



Originally Ripley was supposed to die because Weaver wanted out of the series. Then she read the script and wanted back in.

BLomkamp is supposed to fix that, though. I've not liked an Alien movie since Cameron was at the helm. Ressurection could have been good, but some of the scenes and that ending, ugh.

I liked Prometheus, but it wasn't an Aliens movie and the franchise has been lying in the gutter for a few decades now.

Blomkamp actually gives this a shot at being good - he's not a hired gun, he actually likes violence (unlike Fincher), and he'll put the script together himself. Don't get too excited though guys. You know who wrote Alien Resurrection? None other than the savior of Marvel himself, Joss Whedon.

Don't get me wrong, I am not one of those people who think he can do no wrong. Season two of Angel had the worst back-half I can remember, and it went on to infect part of season 3. Also, I could give a shit about the Avengers. I found the first Spider-man to be 100x better, and Guardians of the Galaxy was much better, in my opinion. I didn't think the Avengers was all that special.
