Holy shit the Olsen Twins are really just one Olsen who is a speedster doing a speed mirage?

I wish I hadn't watched this.

That's been a running gag on the show for the last three episodes, actually...

Space Captain Lives Matter! No Justice, No Peace! This is some RACISM. Cutter gets to remain here just because he's WHITE, but Space Captain gets the boot just because his underwear has brown stripes in it and his mom won't let him go outside without a helmet?

Jesus Blue what kind of shop are you running here?!

Cutter isn't white, he's Canadian. Huge difference...

Flamebait

I'm not going to comment on something I have little understanding of (inner workings and political implications anyway) but as for Chi-town's problems, I just read (and watched) a great little bit on BBC about it. This isn't LA in the early 90's, it's much much worse...

The GamesIndustry piece should actually be retroactively inserted into a "It Came from E3 2007" newsbit as it deals with the first show that was not held at the LACC back then.

The author of the article clearly didn't attend E3's Horrible Mess that was E3 Atlanta in '97 (and '98?! They did it twice?! I don't recall that, IGN must have it wrong). What an absolute clusterfuck that was! If I hadn't been busy managing three girlfriends at once and also working (I was such a stud for a whole six months! ), I might've gone, since I'm in FL. Ah well. It didn't work out anyway...any of it (turns out I suck at management)...

You can't prove a negative... Also, science works in theorems, which is the best explanation for something until observable repeatable evidence shows otherwise. There are no absolutes.

Huh, that's funny because I can absolutely prove that Angelina Jolie is not standing right next to me half-nekkid.

I think the night sky when the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies merge will be far more interesting and that's "only" 4 billion years away. The Earth might even still be around, the Sun is expected to expand into a red giant in about 5 billion years.

I read or watched somewhere (that I'm way too lazy to look up right now) that while the Earth might survive until the Sun goes all Red Giant on our asses, we won't be around to see even the start of it. Apparently, if the Earth's temp starts going up along with the Sun getting bigger and hotter, it will begin to cause a feedback loop/greenhouse effect much like Venus in a short amount of time, there by boiling the oceans off and leaving what's left of us not much more than fertilizer. (What a happy thought! Inquisitive ) This will only take a few million years from the start, long before any visible changes will be apparent in the Sun's appearance. Aside from moving the entire planet to an orbit roughly Mars-ish in diameter, there's almost no hope of the Earth living past the 10 billion year old mark. Assuming we don't leave the planet before hand, no one will ever know we were here, and aside from some very old probes that are far, FAR from the solar system by this point, nothing will survive to show our existence. Have a good night! Wacko

Pizza Tycoon sounds like fun.

Any decently made Tycoon game can be fun, if some actual production quality and/or love for the topic is involved. Sadly most of the time that just is not the case.

Meh...Microprose did it right way back when...that and the Zepplin Tycoon they did around the same time...ah, memories...

We do have RGB everything hardware so I guess we're still good for now.

And yet, I have nothing that has RGB/LEDs in them...well, except for the very mild implementation of it on my Logi G510 keyboard. I don't know what the big deal is with having a mouse that looks like a small, pulsating disco ball on your desk? And don't get me started with having it on GPU's and even RAM! FFS!

It's dead, Jim.

I wouldn't waste your time, honestly. I just can't seem to get into it and I've tried many, many times. Then again, I'm fussy, and don't usually finish games. So take that as you will. Having followed it since the beginning, I'm starting to think it will never become what they had envisioned. It's a shame, really, but then, Starpoint Gemini was never really an easy game to get into to begin with. Whenever I go back to it, I have to adjust and it takes time. 'Course playing E:D and X3:AP in the meantime doesn't help, either. I suggest focusing on those, instead. Even after all this time, they're still the highlights of this genre currently...

NetHead wrote on Jun 20, 2017, 19:01:
PS; for any of "those" people that go on about things like "you don't like x-ray vision then don't use it" I suppose it's to much to ask them to consider that games with such things are designed around such things and with them in mind. For instance try something as simple as looking through a keyhole in this Hitman game, that's right they don't need to add such things when there's crap like x-ray vision.

Disclaimer: I've only played the second and third Hitman games, Contracts and Blood Money...I thought they were the first and second but apparently not...hmmm...I'm curious how janky the first one is and if it's good enough to play these days?

Anyway, how is 'stealth vision' any different from having a map that shows you the position of everyone? Because in the games I played, that's exactly what you had. I can't remember if you could turn it off though I assume you could. All I remember from playing is that damn arctic level in the transport plane, where you have to kill the guy a ways away and then blow up a sub or some such thing. I spent so many hours on that level, I hate to admit it! *shudder* Never play that again! The gaming equivalent of getting drunk on cinnamon AfterShock... (my god, never EVER again! Even though I finally got with a girl I'd been after for months, I thought I was going to die the next day! Took almost a week to get back to feeling 'normal' and I had to work laying sod that whole week, too! Horrible...just horrible, that shit should be outlawed! )

HA! Cutter got CUT down...can we do that with ALL of his posts, Blue? Please?! Pray

Anyway, why are you guys waiting until the house is done to put it on the market? I've been to plenty of houses that were still in the midst of remodel yet were listed. Especially if everything is almost done, I'd assume it's going to take some time to get it listed, there's a lot of paperwork to go through. I don't know what the housing market is like in that area, but do you think it'll sell rather quickly? Or are you guys moving before it sells?

Full of questions today,

Well, riding mower sounds fine but might I suggest a complete alternative - hire someone to do it. Seriously, $20-25 a job for an acre is about right and there are no shortages to people willing to do it, plus you help out the economy. (heh) I hate mowing with a passion, same with moving (oh GOD do I hate moving furniture!) so whenever possible, I just get someone else to do it. Yeah, I'm a lazy son of a bitch, what of it?

I stopped playing GTA5 for the simple fact the cheating mods were killing the game for me. Just trying to play the game and some kid who can't play the game as intended starts spawning cars, insta-killing other players, making themselves invulnerable, etc. it just took my enjoyment from the game. So Frankly don't care if they lock the game tighter then fort knox for modding if it stops the script kiddies. Be nice to play the game again without these twerps with self confidence issues.

One of the great tragedies of TV history is that the way Babylon 5 was made makes it impossible for a remastering to HD. *sigh*

It's unlikely but not impossible. It was shot on film and could be re-scanned in HD, even at 16:9. But they'd need to create all new CGI from scratch, which probably makes it unlikely to be worth the cost of creating.

I had high hopes when The Lost Tales came out that ol' JMS would push for a film or even just more DVD stories. But now with most of the cast dead, it seems just about impossible. They actually changed quite a few things, effects-wise, in the TLT DVD and at the time, JMS said it was experimentation for an updated B5, whether that be in the DVD's or a remastered series or even a film. In fact, because most of the original models for the show had been lost, they had a fan send in a mesh and model for the Warlock Destroyer seen during Sheridan's story and the B5 station was totally rebuilt with fan help. (Which is also why the destruction scene of the station at the beginning is different from that seen in the last episode, 'Sleeping In Light') Sadly, after the first DVD, he seemed to get tired of all the studio bureaucracy that always seems to interfere when he does something 'B5' related and ended up cancelling everything. I know he had plans to do a story with Vir and Londo and another involving Garibaldi. Obviously, none of that can be done now. The Lost Tales might very well be the last B5 related thing ever filmed and that's a damn shame. A crime even.

There is one hope, a slim hope but as Sheridan once said, he's 'never seen hope when it wasn't on a diet'. (One of the most cringiest lines I think JMS has ever written) That hope is the filmed scenes to 'Into The Fire'. Those have never been released or seen. Maybe one day, when Sierra and/or WB go into bankruptcy and auction, someone can scoop up the assets and remake the game as it was to be but with modern tech. My god, what a game that would be! It's feature set would've rivaled Star Citizen's, single-player-wise anyway.

*sigh* Wishful thinking, I suppose...

Another to add to the list:

Stephen Furst died from complications of diabetes. He was 63.

Sorry to say that Vir is dead, probably one of my favorite characters from 'Babylon 5'. Stephen was in 'Animal House' too

WHAT?!? Nooo! Quiver

*looks it up to see if really true*

I really really fucking hate life sometimes... Sigh

One of the best moments with Vir, besides his convo with Morden and then seasons later actually getting to do what he said he would...

All I can say right now is...Goodbye.

You mean I missed Gordon Freeman rocking out and running into people in a mosh pit?! Damn! How much longer can I keep that on my bucket list?

Carrie Fisher died of sleep apnea and 'drug use' was also a factor, L.A. County coroner says.

Oh, bite me. She died to become more powerful than any one of us could ever imagine. That's it. No mystery behind it. She could do more as a blue force ghost to guide Episode IX than if she was alive. That is why Obi-wan died, ja? He could help more as a omni-present ghost than he could as a feeble old man. And while we're on the subject, I call bollocks that he couldn't help Luke when he went to Bespin! He couldn't help because plot, that's why! They had to manufacture some drama for his first shot at Vader and make Luke vulnerable. Or seem vulnerable. That's the only thing in Empire that really ever erked me. Wait, what were we talking about? Wacko
