Ok so we get to see some art assets (which look good), but are we looking at a Planet Coaster/Theme Park type game or what?

I wonder if Blade Runner 2049 is like the first Blade Runner movie: great movie, but box office poison. It seems people just want actors in colorful spandex costumes fighting each other... Whatever. I am going to watch BR2049 next week.

I feel this movie will have legs. Older farts like us will go see it, just not opening weekend. They compare it monetarily to Alien Covenant, but by all indications, that was a bad movie. I think BR2049 will continue to make decent money for several weeks. It's worth it to see a Denis Villeneuve film in theaters. They're always so gorgeous.

(spoiler free) it's worth seeing for the visuals alone, but the rest i wasn't a fan of, and i worship the original. it lacked the philosophy and the loneliness of the original. it was a straight plot sequel without attempting to match its artistic importance.

sidenote: i love gratuitous nudity as much as anyone, but it got distracting in this film. i feel like i missed some important things staring at glorious naked bodies.

If I remember correctly there were 3 nude moments in the entire movie. And I thought the loneliness was portrayed quite well with Ryan's performance.

i mean, there wasn't a ton of nudity, but there what there was, was quite ample. doesn't help that the JOI actress is a blazing hot exemplar of female perfection, nor that you don't... appreciate that type of thing as much as i do heh.

gosling's goslingness leaked out a little too much for such a robotic role. he's a naturally goofy dude and he had too much personality for my liking. and the film had fucking gags of all things. i mean they were funny, but they really undercut the mood and seriousness of the film for me.

i think i can say that it's a compelling detective-noir film, but not the important work of art that the original was.

I can appreciate the beauty of a women, the only thing that I took note of is it must have been very cold during the nude scenes especially the last JOI nude moment because those nipples could have cut glass.

But you can tell Harrison really got his leg fucked up between Force Awaken accident and his aircraft crashes due to his limp/attempt to run.

A little googling shows that it's been a "game-changer" since 2013 or so. Rumors in 2016 were saying that in 2017, Apple Watches were going to use them. Now they're predicting them in 2018. Reliably producing them in mass quantities is apparently harder than it looks.
Looking forward to my Apple watch with a 4k display.
If you wear 5x reading glasses the screen will appear to be 18 inches across.

That's how most guys on the internet measure their dicks!

Ok Blade Runner update:

Made it to the scene where Daryl Hanna get's invited into the apt building of the guy who builds toys/friends and fell asleep. I sorta know how the movie ends (tears in the rain blah blah).
So a co-worker took me to see Blade Runner 2049, and have to say it's still a weird movie, story is a bit easier to follow, but (TO ME) lacks all the cool "Shadowrun" look/feel/vibe, especially on the street level when Decker is eating Chinese food, or chasing down the pleasure replicant. Not quite Sixth Sense deep, but overall a pretty decent flick.

I remember a time when this game was about crime and heists and such, instead of basically now being HotWheels Online.


So what's their plan for RDR2 Online? Within six months it'll be Minecraft?

All I do these days is wait for people to steal vehicles then go and steal them. I'm taking GTA back to it's roots!

I'm not saying Transformers: Last Knight was good. It was a dumb, dumpster fire of a movie, yes. But. The effects involved in the final battle, which lasted quite a while melted my brain in IMax 3D when I saw it.

Also, original Pacific Rim was awesome. It was cheesy in all the right ways.

This trailer..eeeeeeh. That sense of scale they had with the mecha in the original seems to be lacking. Looks more like Power Rangers.

The only thing I will agree with you about is that is indeed a dumpster fire. I'd rather what Shia's bad moments in Transformers, and over an hour of his combing his hair in the last Indiana Jones movie then be forced to watch this again.

Just finished watching Transformers the last knight.

Do yourself a favor, go think of one of those more hurtful things you could do to yourself and repeat it for the run time of the movie and it may be more enjoyable. It's like George Lucas had a major Jar Jar Binks attack and it spread to this movie.

Ok some quick impressions.

I really like how you can purchase the ability to play the Hero/Hero Ships, instead of waiting for little icons to pop up. But I miss the stunts of the ships, unless I'm missing something you couldn't dodge or get out of the way of missiles/rockets unless you flew behind cover.

Performance at 1080p at the default 55 FoV, Ultra with vsync (motion blur turned off), was a little wonky, even in the single player campaign mode. But I have to hand it to Dice, it's still a beautiful/sexy engine.

I actually sent a email to Valve suggesting that my account my auctioned off, and all proceeds go to a charity.

So if I don't know what Twitch Prime is, should I be enraged or excited? Will I still be able to use 1-click. Will this affect my Whole Foods Cafe purchases. Did I use affect when I should have used effect.
So confused.

Wow you are full of fucking shit. Shouldn't you be over in the Evil Within 2 thread astroturfing?

Get lost, I don't have time to waste on idiots like you.

I've posted this before and I'll post this again.

Every Ubisoft game since the first Assassin's Creed (at least first party) has had major enhancements made to the PC releases of it's games. Typically Ubisoft has held back a few titles from being released at the same time of their console versions.

Assassin's Creed Series, Watch Dogs franchise, Ghost Recon Wildlands, The Division, Rainbow Six Siege, Far Cry series have ALL had some sort of video (I believe all by Nvidia) showcasing the extra features of the game.

Now as for performance, the only game I've had issue with (meeting all recommended spec's with maybe exception to the original Assassin's Creed) the games I listed was Assassin's Creed Unity. Then again this a very graphically aggressive game, and Ubisoft had to patch ALL versions of this game to get acceptable framerate.

Now if you'd like me to compare Ubisoft's Avil to Bethesda's ID Tech 5, and compare compatibility, performance, etc I'll be more then happy to.

Right, we won't run out in our lifetimes, but given its usefulness in so many applications, I would think we should be more judicious in it's use.

So wrong. CONSUME like a good little human jd.

Vemo the question should be, do you want to be part of that 3.27% that looses everything on a drive. Documents, Photos, Videos etc?

It's going very strong, but sadly games like Champions Online are just rotting to death in a time where Superhero/Comic movies are at a all time high.

Thankfully Levar has had enough time in a sound booth to handle the character, as every other actor from Trek has sounded like they were just woken up and not given any coffee.
