Out of the Blue

Beware the Ides of March. They certainly were not good to Julius Caesar, and they also have brought bad tidings to Mike D'Antoni, Mets ownership, and David Milch fans. It also seems to have brought some bad mojo to the server here, as we suffered outages yesterday afternoon, and in the wee hours of this morning. A further complication of this is an error that persisted afterwards breaking the forums, but Frans gamely clambered into the Jefferies tube to address this, and things seem to be back to normal now. Apologies for the downtime and a hearty thanks to Frans for his timely assistance.

Will there be a Cutter NPC? Please?

Yes, but he's unkillable, super cool and gets all the hot chicks in-game.

Did you go for the $25000 donation?

Can't agree on 24 season 7. Every season after the Nixon look-alike was idiotic and insulting. I only watched pieces of them.

Season 7 totally sucked! I only watched pieces of it!

... okay.

Creston

Are you criticizing me judging it when I saw maybe only the first three episodes?

Yeah, was that not obvious? I can add a Rolleyes smiley to it, if you want?

Season 5's first four or five episodes dealt with nothing but the president's utter fucking HARPY of a wife and the assassination attempt on the Russian prime minister. They were really slow, dragged on for waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long with the whining of that harpy about literally everything in her life, etc etc etc

2 episodes later (not quite sure, it's been awhile since I saw it), the president is implicated as being the bad guy behind it, and the whole season just EXPLODES in awesomeness, and is frequently mentioned as people's favorite season.

Season 7 started off kinda slow, but it also really picked up. So yeah, if you saw just a few episodes, and then call it "Idiotic and insulting," based on that, I'm going to call bullshit on that. If you didn't like the season, fine. But you're still basing it off "pieces of them."

RDR is just awesome! It's criminal it didn't come to the PC. Still the greatest animated horses of any game ever.

Have ordered Red dead redemption game of the year edition, got it really cheap no need to get all the dlc.
My first foray into console shooters is actually a heavily discounted copy of Rage believe it or not. I'm really enjoying it, looks beautiful & starts off gentle so I can get the hang of aiming with the controller.
As a casual golfer hacker I intend getting Tiger Woods PGA tour 13 for Kinect when released at the end of the month.

As for good recent shows: Archer, Community, Justified, Terriers (RIP.) Maybe not many, but they're still great shows.

"24" The Movie: On Hold, Likely Dead?

I don't think there is a need for closure with 24 anyway. It was recycling plotlines by the 3rd season and went on entirely too long. It was a guilty pleasure but we get more than enough silly action movies these days, with a 60 million dollar budget including marketing I can't see them doing anything worthwhile either.

After the disgrace that was season 6 (hey, let's watch Chloe bicker with her ex-husband for 20-30 minutes per fucking episode!) I thought it'd die off, but season 7 was really, really excellent. Probably my favorite season after season 5.

8 was just really dull. I never finished watching it on TV, and while I bought the DVD set, it's gathering dust in a closet somewhere.

So yeah, I agree that there's really no need for a movie. Still one of my fave tv shows of all time though.
