Anyone else get an alert that the "20 Worst PC Setups" page contained a threat?

Maybe a false alarm, but be aware...

better lineup than last year (haha i just wrote 'this year' before backspacing). i'll probably see all of those cuz even a middling wachowski brothers film is better than the talentless schlock we had in 2014.

I liked Cloud Atlas. They're a bit hit or miss, true. Their latest doesn't really look that great, but I'm totally psyched about this years movies (in general).

Can't wait for Star Wars mania this fall, too...doesn't happen that often (though it may, once Disney gets it's way) so it's always fun to watch people collectively lose their minds (legal disclaimer: I suspect I'll be one of them).


didn't know you were a fellow star wars devotee. have you seen star wars rebels? really, really good. way better than that clone wars nonsense so far.

Oh god, I grew up on that shit. My father bought me an AT-AT, in exchange for not scratching my chicken pox, many decades ago.

I'm waiting for Rebels on disc, since I don't have cable, but I'm excited about it. I enjoyed Clone Wars, for the most part, as well.

I'm come to the conclusion that how emotionally invested one is in an IP directly determines how accepting of change we are. And I used to be heavily invested in SW, only to fall out of it with the prequels and George's meddling (IE many CGI changes) with the original trilogy. And I'm to the point now where I accept that Star Wars has to change in order to grow and be successful. I understand that I may not like every new thing that comes out, but that in order for Star Wars to survive, it has to change and evolve with the times.

Getting the harmy cuts from a torrent really helped with this. I can have my Star Wars exactly as I remember it (and actually looking better) while the younger generation can have their Jar Jar.

In short, it really is true about "if you love something, you have to set it free".

I never understood all the hate for AvP 2010. I had a lot of fun with the campaigns and it's still is one of the prettiest games out there.
Easy, people wanted AvP2, which was great. They got AvP...something...where the aliens felt like they were running through cheese. Unlike the nimble, quick, and overpowering bugs they were in the first two games.

This. 1000 this.

They lost me as soon as the predator only had certain points he could jump to/from.

I a have feeling it was a case of the game not selling at all on the service.
Where is the harm in keeping it available on Steam?

Not to mention that even w/o selling it, steam still has to host the install files for people that already own the game.

Hopefully Sega realizes why Isolation was so well received, and continues that route...

Kids Movies Sport A Lot Of Murder.
That title and that article conflate murder with death. Kids movies do not have lots of murder, but they do have death. That's a big difference. Scar isn't murdered in Lion King, unless you're accusing the animators of "murdering" him. Here's the objective from the study:

Objectives To assess the risk of on-screen death of important characters in children’s animated films versus dramatic films for adults.

Are there any animated children's films in which someone is actually murdered? I'm trying to recall.

Bambi says "Hi!"

Charlotte's Web isn't murder, it's imparting the life lesson of "everyone dies, and your time will happen" which is a great thing to throw at small children.

edit: Animal Farm? Was Nemo's mom killed? Can't remember? The first 10 minutes of Up made me want to kill myself, as a grown adult.

And we won't even get into Watership Down, holy fuck!

Same here, getting blitzed...at home. Can't decide if I want to crank up Heavy Metal, 1941, or Snowpiercer. Not seen the first two in years, and SP since the theater.

Wolf sat there (may still be at $20), but it's been out a while and seems like it should be at least another $5 cheaper.

Just started my replay (for the other timeline) and having a blast...

I see amazon has it for $20 as well.

Currently I'm just finishing up Bioshock Infinite which I picked up in the summer. On Part 2 of the DLC which has been pretty good.

It was pretty neat the way they tie things together. Felt like a goodbye to Irrational.

Yeah, I'll back this. They delivered with the last two and have pretty much earned the trust.

As soon as it's live, they've got my money. I went $125 last time, might go higher this time if another expansion/add on is included.

The game has to detect that are you are using some pirated software. Why wouldn't people who bypass copy protection bypass this too?

It's the usual back and forth that we've seen before, I'm sure. My favorite is still Batman's cape fucking up in Arkham Asylum (and the posts it generated from players).
