Really hope the movie answers the question everyone's been asking since the 80's. Is Deckard a replicant?

it's been pretty much confirmed he's a replicant, especially with the addition of the unicorn dream in the director's cut.

rogue one impressions (spoiler free):

muuuuch better than i dared let myself hope. it brought star wars back to its Original Trilogy roots - a galaxy shabby in its decor and its morals; a rebellion that was first and foremost about being the hope of the people, not about pewpew and lightsabers.

there were minor problems with the script; you could tell where the writers thought, 'yeah that's good enough. lets move on.' but they just needed some rearrangement, not the death star size holes of TFA.

all i ever wanted was an original star wars story that had a soul about people (while delivering the necessary amounts of pew) and a story about hope, like what i grew up on. i'd begun to think maybe i was asking too much. i'm glad i was wrong. if you're hesitant because of the travesty that was TFA, don't be. may be somewhat meta, but this is starwars' own A New Hope, to make it as good as many of us have long wanted.

Blade Runner 2049 teaser trailer just dropped: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDscTTE-P-k

Looks great to me. Will be a long wait.

i will be shocked if 2049 matches the lonely cry for justice that was the original. that was one of the greatest films of all time; i really don't expect 2049 to be anything more than a stylish detective noir story. still, i would be happy if it was at least that.

Rogue One was really good!


You also liked TFA so you'll forgive me if I wait for word from one of the TFA naysayers.

you know i was one of the main rabble rousers among the pitchforks and torches crowd, so i'll give you an honest opinion after i see it tomorrow night.

I know just how the Gunnar-man feels, if a woman put's it out on a plate I have a hard time not reaching for a knife and fork.

just to be clear, you're being metaphorical right? not talking about lima beans and nice Chianti FTH-TH-TH-TH-TH-TH type of deal here are we?

Godspeed, John Glenn.

when we left earth is also quite the extraordinary docu about the space race. great sound track too, with lots of interviews with actual astronauts.

but yeah, one of my favorite lines from Right Stuff was when he said to alan shepard, 'via con dios, jose'. i think jose met him at the pearly gates and introduced him to his buddy dios.

You don't say? How's that 70% of all cars being "clean diesel" working out for ya there, Paris?

That's the fault of crooks like VW, not Paris.

Well, yes and no. Obviously VW are a bunch of fucking scumbags whose leadership deserves to see major jailtime (but never will. Fuck you, Ferdinand Piech, you piece of shit) and their actions have definitely contributed, but it was this fucking inane shift in Europe to get off petrol/gasoline and onto Diesel because it was "cleaner" that's to blame. The large majority of cars in Europe are diesel, and France was one of the highest diesel users in Europe.

Anyone who has ever stood beside a fucking diesel powered car knows that diesel is NOT cleaner. Sure, it may have fewer CO2 emissions, which helps with the greenhouse effects, but the nox emissions are through the roof, and that's (partially) why all these major cities in Europe (and elsewhere) are now suffering from all this god-awful smog.

really? europeans cities are choked with smog? that's surprising; i haven't seen anything in the news about a pollution problem over there.

also, isn't diesel's emissions balanced by the fact that they get like 60 mpg? i know i've seen top gear eps where they're riding around in upper crust sedans with crazy mileage.

They couldn't really go any heavier with it without it becoming completely obtuse for the vast majority of viewers.
I think this is exactly loomy's problem. The writing for this show is brilliant, but if you don't get it... you won't get it.

i'm on the brilliant bandwagon. i love this show. i don't get what loomy's problem is, because it's written perfectly without being completely impenetrable for a wide audience. maybe he just needs to chill with trying to be smarter than the show and just enjoy the ride, so to speak. i mean, if you can't like this, then pretty much you have to hate all mass-audience entertainment, because 99.9% of it is dumber than WW.

damn shame. a game about a company of mercs seems perfect for a coop campaign, esp. since the missions revolve around 4 player 'lances' of mechs.

when MWO came out everyone was crying for an SP mech game. now it's been announced and everyone is crying that it's not multi? yo no comprendo man.

personally i got a little chubby from this. mech4 mercs was one of my fondest pc gaming memories; strong story, strong gameplay, immersive experience all around. MWO actually has great gameplay, just sucks it's multi only. i'd be fine with them bringing that gameplay to this. i do hope they upgrade the lighting though. it seemed overly simple, especially in a dark hangar like that.

My penmanship has always sucked and I've generally always written in that combination of print/cursive anyway. I don't see a need for it, beyond being able to sign your name. That one is actually important.
In 1989 I knew someone who signed legal documents using block letters. This was when I was in the USAF, a female coworker and I were doing some kind of required paperwork together and I noticed she had used block lettering where her signature was required. I pointed out to her that she was supposed to put her signature in that location, to which she responded, "That is my signature." I was pretty surprised at the time. So the idea it's dying out is not a shock to me.

you mean all capitals? or as in like she took the time to draw out every letter as a 2D drawn font?

personally i've always appreciated every chance i got to hand write. i think penmanship is an art in itself and says a lot about the penman.

Hmm, while browsing the All-Seeing Eye network here at Barad-Dur, I noticed what seems like a good deal online.

Surface Pro 3 deal

And shipping to Mordor is free, via Hobbit Special Delivery.

So the deal seems to include both entertainment, and dinner...

Any comments welcome - would this thing run Divinity: Original Sin? And maybe Pillars of Eternity? Thanks for advice.

I would stay faaaaaar the fuck away from Surfaces. I support them at work and they are non-stop problems. Microsoft is STILL trying to fix the battery life issues on the Surface 3 (and have been for well over a year now.)


that's surprising. i have a surface 3 that i bought for black friday last year. its battery life is one of its pluses i feel. maybe i just got lucky but i've gone through a bunch of cheap notebooks and the surface was the first one that really did everything i wanted.

i mean, what were people expecting from a procgen game? you can't build compelling story content for 18 billion worlds. and if you say, well, build it for just a few worlds, then it becomes no different to a game like mass effect. all the story is concentrated in a few areas and everything else gets ignored because everyone knows there's nothing interesting out there.

sure there were a few misleading statements, but even if they were all true, it would still be a soulless piece of shit game. either way, it's exactly the game i thought it was going to be and i can't fathom how people ever expected otherwise.

it's a video of a dude killing spiders where his children play. perfectly legit imo. i feel the same about spiders as blue (although i've never had a pet). i'm not afraid of them, will catch and release most of the time. but if i had kids and saw a nest of black widows? awwww shit, John Goodman from arachnophobia comes out for bloooood. i mean spider goooooooo.

JD where the fuck do you live? the amazon? i didn't think centipedes got a food long anywhere except in the deepest jurassic park fucking jungle.

it's amazing how much the needle hurts considering it's designed to penetrate as smoothly as possible. i swear stepping on glass/getting a paper cut doesn't hurt as much.

Saw "Arrival" yesterday -- I thought it was excellent. YMMV.

I've seen some very positive reviews, but others saying it's only "fair". It's definitely on my list, but I might wait on netflix...


i would agree it's fair. for anyone with love of real science fiction, it's not particularly impressive.

also, westworld: called it!

westworld: so the whole plot is going to rely on this two stooges moment down in maintenance. i hope it's just a side story... cuz that was just a horridly written moment. but maeve achieving skynet sure doesn't feel sidestoryesque.
