I remember when Half-Life 2 released. I didn't care that it required Steam; I cared that it worked, which it didn't. Boy was I mad.

Is anyone besides fanatics even remotely surprised? My friend had his girlfriend by him a $250 ship for his birthday. That was 3 girlfriends ago. He has a wife and a two year old now.

Well it wasn't that exciting, but at the very least they apparently got the atmosphere right. There's still way too many questions (and, you know, it's still EA, so...) so I'm still expecting them to fuck it up.

Meh I will watch the stream but I am not remotely excited. EA, while actually having done some good things recently, have a LONG history of being deplorable. Who knows? Maybe what I see will excite me some.

People are acting as if the Aliens license is worth a whole bunch of money, which confuses me. There hasn't been a great Alien movie since Cameron's 'Aliens' came out in 1986. Don't get me wrong, the Xenomorph will always be one of the greatest movie monsters ever created, but there's no way a property can be worth as much without a single great (hell, at this point I'd settle for good) movie in 35 years, can it?

Yeah, rebooting definitely makes sense. 3 was my favorite, but 4, while fun, was just insane.

You're just saying you don't use them to signal your virtue!

BASTARD! But seriously, everyone was talking about how 'feminist' movies like Ghostbusters 2016 Harley Quinn, Charlies Angels 2015, et al were. I just thought they were bad movies. Like, really bad. Whether they were "woke" or not to me is irrelevant because they sucked. Captain Marvel had some controversy because Bree Larsen said something stupid about 40-something white males, but I found her acting wooden, her personality non-existent, and the hero in general was boring. That again makes the movie bad and the controversy irrelevant. With The Last of Us 2, the story and actions of once great characters were beyond stupid. I'll let someone else figure out if that because they were woke or not. I just know they were bad. At least to me.

And man, does any non-cretin say "woke?" What's next? "Virtue signaling?"

Well I admit I think them when appropriate (which is not now), but I don't say them because, like most intentionally igniter words, they have become so overused and misused the words virtually have no meaning. They just derail any conversation they're used in.

The "Cosby" suite is just another example of how not to behave. It's creepy and in extremely poor taste, even if it was most likely done with irony. Do I think it should end someone's career? No. But it's out there now, and that is a very hard stigma to shed oneself of. I don't know if anyone's recent firing had anything to do with that, but I wouldn't be surprised.

I can't remember a show dropping in quality between seasons more than Westworld did between season 1 and 2. The first season was amazing. The second season was awful.

You know Blues, there comes a time when a thread should get locked, because this one has gone off the rails completely.

It has been quite thoroughly derailed, that's true.

In 20 years of being here, I can't remember Blue locking a single thread. Of course I might have missed something...

"In order to develop your shadow, you need to realize and admit that given the right circumstances, you could become someone like Hitler too...."

He's not entirely wrong, but not only would you have to have the same acute mental disabilities, you would also have to continuously make the same inexplicable (and often horrific) decisions as the psychopath himself. It's more than just the cards you were dealt; its also the decisions you make. This is a big reason why not all people who were molested as a child go on to become molesters themselves.

You don't believe that he doesn't want racists for customers?

No I believe that all CEO's want inclusivity and to do what's right. I just believe they want money much, much more. Knowing that there would be a negligible loss to his business makes him want to score a few points at no risk. If there was a risk I'm guessing he'd be less vocal. To be clear, I want inclusivity. CEO's want money first.

Enough of the goddamned apologies. Fire those that abused and those that knew about it and did nothing. Get rid of them, testify to what you knew, and send them to jail. Is there anyone not sick of this shit?
