I liked This is the End, but The Interview was a stinker. Glad I only spent the $6 on it for the VOD, instead of going to a theater for the disappointment.

This is the End was really awesome, and I agree that the Interview cant really compare, but as far as buddy buddy comedies go I thought it was pretty decent. I do have a thing for Seth Rogen films, people are always going on about how low brow these movies are and I really dont get that. The jokes are crude and ridiculous but they spare no one (including and perhaps especially themselves) and it takes intelligence to 'get' that.

And Seth's movies aren't nearly as bad as say, Adam Sandler's.

I thought Interview was ok to good. Not as good as End or Pineapple, but still enjoyable.

Damn, that shit in Paris is fucked up...


Sites are claiming they got two out of the 3, with the 3rd one shot dead. Hope it's the right guys, and they get whats coming to them.

Speaking of ditching the txt line, I'm disappointed the ManHunter games aren't on gog.

Nin, fire up dosbox and head over to myabandonware.com, they all there and play fine in dosbox

That's not a bad idea at all...I used to have them on 3.5 floppies but I've not had a floppy drive in I don't know when.

Sony actually considered just not releasing the movie at all, so anything is gravy at this point, right?

They're still going to lose money on it. But getting any of it back is welcome.

Rather interesting sign of the times that 31 million online. I'm sure theater owners are pissed, but the times are changing.

It's confusing that his company is named "Origin PC." I just assumed that he was working at EA Origin's website, and might have been heading that up. I guess it's not infringement, but damn is it confusing.

Yeah, that was a little headscratching at first...

I'd still love to try Valve's controller...I may totally end up hating it, but it at least looks interesting.

I didn't mind Act 1, can't believe how long they're taking to do Act 2. But my main gripe was the difficulty. Point and click adventure games have become stupid easy since the old King's Quest days.

Well to be fair part of the difficultly was fighting with text parsers.

OMG the hair pulling in those first few Space Quest/Police Quests...

Speaking of ditching the txt line, I'm disappointed the ManHunter games aren't on gog.

When I first heard about this, I thought well maybe they'll do better this time. And then I saw that it was free-to-play and they lost me.

AFAIK Brink was not F2P. It still ended up sucking balls. At least this way, anyone can try it and see for themselves.

DB is listed as F2P...

Wow, you're right. Looked in my library (figured I owned it) and the store both...that is odd.

why make a spiritual successor to System Shock using Unity when you could use something nicer, like Unreal Engine 4?

"Money" would be my first thought.

All of them sound retarded for Far Cry.

Here's a thought, Ubisoft: How about you... I dunno, make a new IP? I think after 4 games, we've seen Far Cry. I really don't need yet another game with the exact same gameplay elements in it (though since it's Ubisoft, any new IP will really still just be Ubisoft the Game and be 30% AC, 30% Far Cry, 40% Gather All The Things)

Also: Set fire to your Kiev studio, as they are beyond fucking incompetent.


After Watch Dogs and The Crew, the new IP route didn't exactly pan out...

Much better pricing plan Sony. I can actually see many Playstation owners doing that, particularly those with families where multiple users with multiple gaming tastes are playing on the machine. It's a lot cheaper than buying everyone the games they like individually. Hell, if Nintendo offered something like this on a WiiU I would buy one today and subscribe immediately. I would prefer some sort of "Master PS+" subscription option that includes PS Now so I don't have to maintain two separate subscriptions...bet hey...that's not a big deal.

Not so sure that it's as attractive for single user situations.

I still think it's too high, but good luck to them.

But Valve getting a heafty cut of every game sold? Hardly, they're one of if not the lowest in terms of cuts on every game sold in all the distribution services.

30% to me is healthy enough when you have the largest share.

That also covers payment/billing, file hosting/bandwidth, patching, and matchmaking.

Of all the films on that list I liked Transcendence the most. It felt like a science fiction film. It made me think about a lot of things. It made me feel for the antagonist who actually turns out to be the protagonist.

I watched The Interview the other night and found it ok. I'm not sure if it's increased news coverage caused folks that might not normally watch it to check it out (and be disappointed) or what. But to me, it was in the same vein as Pineapple Express and This Is The End, both of which I liked.

BTW, where ya been??? You had a 3 year gap there!
