Duncan Jones, directed the amazing Moon, and the fairly interesting if extremely ripped off Source Code(and misnamed!), and now he's directing... Warcraft. Sellout!

Josh Trank, I didn't think Chronicle was bad, but it's a watered down comic book movie basically, by somebody who seemingly never read any comics, or any good comics at least. I am kind of interested to see what he does with the Fantastic Four though. The cast they have is crazy talented, but a little too young for my old self, and Marvel seems to be going all in, since they've cancelled the FF comic, at least until after the movie comes out, no doubt with some retconned versions to more closely match the actors' versions of characters.

Rian Johnson did Terriers, possibly my favorite TV show to ever be IMMEDIATELY cancelled, and Looper wasn't half bad either. He will never be seen as a free man again after Star Wars episode 8 and 9.

Neil Blomkamp, District 9 owned, Elysium's plot was so illogical as to cause me physical pain, but I'll probably see Chappie immediately. I feel as though he'd do a pretty weird Terminator movie, could be interesting.

Adam Wingard... Added The Guest, I watched V/H/S and wasn't overly impressed, found footage movies aren't really my cup of tea though.

These are my unsolicited opinions, released upon the world.

*EDIT* Whoops, failing memory correction.

Some of you guys might need to move to ISIS controlled Iran/Syria or something, where all women are forced to walk around fully covered, and you can feel more relaxed.

Also learning the difference between facts and innuendo might be helpful.

One thing has nothing to do with the other. You want to dress and act like trash that's how you're going to get treated. Women dressed modestly and professionally don't run into those sorts of problems. It's not rocket surgery and has nothing to do with men being pigs and everything to do with evolutionary traits that pertain to sex and sexual signals. You don't undo millions of years of genetic hardwiring in a few years because of some uptight PC assholes. Learn to deal with it already.

The innuendo remark is to the people STILL claiming Quinn got some sort of press coverage from a relationship, which is a spurious claim. Wasn't that game released for free anyway? That's a dead horse, but there you go.

As for judging people by their clothes and/or appearance, of course a lot of people do that, but that's where self control should step in. Don't judge a book by its cover, don't judge people based on race or appearance, etc. As adults that should be a skill most people have already acquired, but that's probably just wishful thinking on my part.

Requiring people to dress "moderately and professionally" whatever the hell that might mean to different people, ends up being a ridiculous request eventually, either due to age gap or cultural differences or any other difference in background.

Still available!

This may be one of those things where Amazon does not show the same price in every region, but as soon as I saw that $19.99 Shadows of Mordor sale last week, I went to go buy it, and it was already disabled for me. Since then the price has been jacked back up to 24.99, 37.99, now back to $49.99 for the download version... and for most of that time, it was showing No Codes Available for Sale, to me.

He's flat out said when he has been asked about getting the rights back that he doesn't care and has no interest in doing anything with them right now.

That's EXACTLY what he wants you to think!

James Cameron's Terminator reboot, filming starts in 2017, my prediction recorded here for all posterity.

Based on professional reviews as well as the Bluesnews ones, I feel rather pleased to be waiting for DA:I to drop in price and get some patches, before I drop some coin on it.

Thanks again, early adopters!

Not a fan of my online purchases going up, but states have been struggling for years to stay in the green due to lower tax revenues, and local infrastructure across the US is crumbling. The bottom line is the states could use the money. The original argument, that taxation would stifle internet growth, is no longer valid. The internet is now the most influential tech in the industrialized world with hundreds of billions of dollars in infrastructure around the globe. It can't be stopped, and it ain't going anywhere either.

Agreed, I don't enjoy the thought of paying taxes for online purchases either, but most of these states are going to have to do SOMETHING soon, too much money is flowing around out of reach of their bankrupt coffers. Hopefully we can keep it fair and sane, helping out the states while not wrecking the consumers' day. Some tax attorneys and accountants somewhere are getting major payday boners thinking about the wrangling that'll go on eventually getting this sorted out.

Also, reading that Nintendo Lawsuit story.. ouch. He probably won't have much luck against Nintendo, but he definitely needs to sue his (direct) employers, nobody needs a ruptured aorta.

Huh, I don't see Cameron as producer, just Writer (characters). I assume that means he is getting credit for the original characters he created back in the day (John Connor, Kyle Reese, etc.), but has no direct involvement with the film beyond that.

Cameron as a director has such a singular vision, and is such a ball breaker about getting exactly what he wants, that in a limited role I don't think he would have much effect. His great movies are great because he made them great through force of will and involvement in every facet: Aliens, The Abyss, Terminator, & T2.

Yeah, I was referencing a rumor going around in film nerd circles (I wear several hats!) that Cameron was tangentially involved somehow with Terminator Genisys, and was trying to surreptitiously kill it, so the license is able to revert back to him in a couple years for a modest price. I have done zero fact checking to back that up, but I found it hilarious if it turned out to be true.

Yes to your second part, I am a huge fan of most Cameron films, where he has much more involvement.

(full) Trailer comes out tomorrow. If you want to know the plot, with mild spoilers, it's here, and sounds horrible.

Gah, no full spoilers! And yeah, it'll be a terrible film most likely, as Cameron (as producer) runs it into the ground, to regain control of the Terminator license in 2017. Tinfoil hats, on!

Did they ban The Wire too? They kill prostitutes, women, cops, and women cops undercover as prostitutes in that show.

Holy FUCK, don't even joke about banning The Wire!

Looking forward to the 9.99 Steam/GMG/Gamersgate/etc. sale on GTA V in a year or so.

*Further Offtopic: HD version of The Wire coming soon, creator of The Wire grudgingly approves of the new version.

*EDIT* Added the offtopic.

Hrm, that was the most teasing "Tease" trailer I've seen in awhile, even worse than the Star Wars Episode 7 one. Not much useful information to be gleaned from that, except it seems to be true that old Arnold Terminator will make an appearance.

Congrats on whomever was able to buy Shadows of Mordor off Amazon for $19.99 (Download version), it must have been an error, because they locked that down pretty quick.

I missed it.

*EDIT* Also, Space Run is pretty awesome, for an indie tower defense game.

News Comments > Killing Floor Christmas Update
2. Re: Killing Floor Christmas Update Dec 2, 2014, 21:23 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
KF1 has probably one of the best shooting mechanics of any game(seriously), to go along with probably one of the weakest map designs(in general), and a pretty grindy class system.

If they keep the shooting mechanics, make some better maps, and MAYBE make a slightly better class system, Killing Floor 2 will be amazing. It certainly looks about 10x better graphically.

All that said, not too interested in the Christmas update to Killing Floor 1, tons of games in the queue already. Just started playing the latest Tomb Raider... it's actually really good, if you can get past how weak Laura seems to be written.

Ok sounds like it's worthy, but the Steam store seems to be unresponsive at the moment, I'll try a bit later.

Thanks for the recommendations though.

I'm kind of tempted to pick up Shadows of Mordor since it's only $20 there...

Totally worth it.

It's the Game of The Year for me. Absolutely loved it.

Gah, I was debating buying that, and when I went to Amazon, I'm told that SoM is "currently unavailable." This is the online, download code version.

Really, WB? Running out of codes during a sale? Oh well, too much to play already.
