News Comments > Hunt The THING Revealed
18. Re: Hunt The THING Revealed Oct 13, 2011, 11:49 Wallshadows
 
I'm not trying to be sexist or misogynistic but part of what made The Thing great was the tension and paranoia combined with very typical male stress reactions and alpha male behavior.

It really depends on who they have cast as the female lead and whether she can genuinely pull off and compliment those elements or is simply written in for looks. I've never heard of Mary Winstead but she looks like the typical dainty female cast one would expect which makes me nervous.

We need more Sigourney Weavers.

The problem with The Thing is that, regardless of prequel or not, it will still follow the very same concept of that from the original/1982 version. There is very little room to deviate from the story since it focuses primarily on paranoia and survival.

There is no way you can add anything to the story which has not been shown or implied in the previous versions and this is where everyone is getting hung up on the remake or prequel and why it simply should not have been. A large portion of what made this film great was how so many events were shrouded in mystery and left you thinking long after watching the movie and this will likely lay waste to a part of that mystery...

The unfortunate event is that they are billing this as a prequel but cast a female lead which is not documented or shown in the previous film so I will not be surprised if she somehow survives to spawn side story sequels...

CGI does ruin the core concept of this film though. The animatronics and stop motion used on the blair alien is still amazing!

I wish ladder items would disappear once it's reset but at this point, ladder runewords are just as common within the non ladder community...

I like how BF3 was upfront with all their gameplay videos and trailers whereas with MW all we get are edited ingame videos with drops of gameplay thrown in here and there.

Then again, if I want to see what MW3 looks like in game, I can go fire up the first MW...

Nowadays most of the quality of a game comes from the development effort put into it, not the technology it runs on

Rage is a far cry from quality...

There are two movies called 'SPEED'. One has Sandra Bullock and the other is porn.

How can Bethesda sue for a partial name when other industries seem to be cool with it or even blatantly copying?

Does it boil down to lawyers being dicks? That makes the most sense to me...

News Comments > Morning Consolidation

As far as commercials go, regardless of the platform, I thought it was great and gave me a pretty warm feeling as a gamer as opposed to all those typical not-so-serious PS3 ads which are just silly.

That said, it's funny how some can simply sidestep and take any opportunity to throw jabs at the console community with blanket stereotyping. I wonder how they feel about the PC community being stereotyped as being virgins living in their mother's basement by the console community or non gamers?

I'm all for PC gaming as I have been using a PC for that purpose since the mid 90s but, come on, part of the problem with this whole PC vs Console war are those who make asinine and generalized insults which perpetuates the never ending debate of hypocrisy. Sure, PC gamers can dish it out but when it comes to being stereotyped themselves by others, it's all the sudden bad and those who say it are stupid.

tl;dr: Stereotyping is bad and you should feel bad for doing it.

1 came to life and committed seppuku, while screaming it was an unholy abomination.

The kaishakunin was delayed so it had a slow, painful death and then defecated all over itself.

Huh? He said he would only resign his position if he was on the verge of death. I think when he resigned most were expecting he had a month to live so just about right.

Yeah, you're right, but I think it's more disbelief that it has actually happened in spite of the fact that he has been in poor health for some time and was inevitable to happen sooner or later. I guess later couldn't wait...

Maybe it has more to do with the fact that I found out on Blues when I accidentally hit refresh and noticed new news was posted and came across this so it really caught me off guard...

News Comments > Upcoming WoW Changes
6. Re: Upcoming WoW Changes Oct 5, 2011, 15:10 Wallshadows
 
Cataclysm grinding is kind of a hassle too but I find it goes by much quicker then Northrend (obviously less levels but larger XP gap). With the two BoA pieces to push between 80 and 85, you usually complete a zone such as Hyjal towards the middle to upper 82 really makes zones such as Deepholm less of a nuisance as you are there for a lot less time and can jump in to Uldum.

Usually, I iron our Hyjal > do half Deepholm > most of uldum > half of Twilight Highlands before I hit level 85.

Pair this up with a decent BG weekend and fast instances and I would dare say the grind from 80 > 85 is no sweat. When Cata released, I was on vacation and had a Redbull diet which allowed me to hit 85 in a shade under 22 hours so now with BoA gear it feels like a breeze where XP is practically handed to you on a silver platter.

Northrend is the real killer for one glaring reason and that is the fact that, for whatever reason, they decided to only allow level 80s to get quests in the new zones whereas in previous expansions you could go in two levels below the previous cap.

Now, two levels isn't that much and you still have access to Cata items prior to hitting Cata content but it makes a huge difference that Northrend is the biggest stone wall in the game when it comes to grinding. It's slow, it's boring, and some of us have seen it so many times that it makes leveling an alt a matter of whether or not you want to regrind that dump.

Thankfully, if you ever manage to rope a friend in to WoW, you can make use of the triple XP and grant-a-level all the way up to 80 now which trivializes everything up to that point which is likely the next best thing to launch you right in to Cataclysm. Unfortunately, you would not be doing your friend a favor by recruiting them in to the game.

Thanks for the links, Krovven.

I've played through the game with the stock configuration which still provided me with a great experience but I would love to try it out with those mods to squeeze out another fresh run on the campaign.

I seem to recall a post on Blues which had rep from EA explain that there will be day one patches for this title so I would not be surprised if they let the game roll out as it is now and rely on a hefty patch.

You buy the beta and they'll give you the game for free.

The only unfortunate circumstance to this story is that the man who did it was much older. If he had been the same age as the other kid, it would have been that much more awesome.

Also, Ant, I have no clue what your site is about or does when I visit it. Something about Ants and lots of links. lol

Care to enlighten me?
