Leonard Nimoy has died aged 83. As a very infrequent Star Trek viewer, he was my favourite.

Yeah, I'm sad.

RIP Leonard! Such a cool guy...

I have no idea why anyone would care what this person thinks. She's about as interesting as paint drying.

I'd not heard of this dress until last night and I'm already fucking sick of hearing about it.

No, I've just been around long enough to see what a festering shithole the USA is turning into.

It can't be too bad if you're spending the evening on the internet.

I can't understand why anyone in America (who wasn't an executive or shareholder at an ISP) wouldn't be overjoyed by this ruling? I mean, in the States you frequently have little or no choice in your ISP and - worse still - absolutely no meaningful recourse when things go wrong or just outright suck.

Because they're fucking stupid.

Most utilities are reasonably regulated -- power, water, telecom. Is it perfect? Of course not, but when you are dealing services that are monopolies, or duopolies it comes down to which devil do you trust the most? Or if you prefer, the lesser of the evils. The ISPs had their chance, their actions have brought this on themselves.

Exactly. These companies wanted to prioritize traffic, and then slow down any companies traffic they felt should pay them more.

These companies wrote fake letters on behalf of elected officials, in an effort to complete a merger.

These are companies that systematically divide up cities into zones so they don't have to compete with each other.

Fuck them. They had their shot to play fair, and now they've been called on it. It astounds me that people haven't read up on this shit, and now cry about how it's the end of the world.

The process has only barely started, I believe Verizon has already said they'll take legal action to oppose this.

That's true, but it's an important first step.

The games on console are like $70, and then when you buy the next console, you lose all those old games and have to replenish your whole library again. You can't keep using the same console to play newer games like you can with a PC. You don't have to pay to play online like you do with services like XBL. You're gonna have a computer anyway. Why not making a gaming PC?

*In your location. In the US, they're the same price as a new pc release ($60). And you can sell that back for a partial refund, once you're done, something you can't do with steam.

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.

It was a gutsy move, and I applaud it, we are talking about a horror movie after all. "Feel good" hollywood subplots have no business being in a good horror film anyway. (Or in anything else for that matter)

Just to clarify, I don't think that the Newt subplot was weak in Aliens. It wasn't, it was an essential part of the film. However in Alien3, killing off both Newt and Hicks, also served the plot of the film greatly. First of all it was unexpected, and secondly it once again cast Ripley as an outsider even more isolated and vulnerable than before.

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

I'd say the response to this news and the collective horror at the failed promise of Prometheus suggest otherwise.


Well, in all fairness, this one could easily suck too (though I hope not!). It's hard not to get excited, but it's a long ways off, and could easily go astray, as well.

Funny, that's why I bought a PC.

Maybe he already has a PC, ever think of that?

Maybe Blue has a sense of humour, ever think of that?

It is odd that you see jabs (friendly or otherwise) towards consoles when I don't recall console folks shitting on the pc folks.

Man that would be cool. Wait. Hey! I actually liked Alien3. I guess I am alone on this planet in thinking it was a great film that put one of my favorite directors on the map.

I liked the unofficial Fincher cut, but even still, killing Hicks and Newt right off the bat (Newt being Ripley's driving focus for most of the second movie) was extremely low.
