You give this massive property to a guy who's made two movies and knows nothing about the property? Yeah that was bound to work out well. Rolleyes

Rovio was so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should. Certain things cannot be films, and Angry Birds is one of them. There's NO story to this game. It's a casual thing people play in-between waiting for things.

Birds live in peace. Pigs come and steal their eggs. Rather basic story, but still a story.

It would be better suited as a Saturday morning cartoon. Build up enough fans. Created enough stories. THEN create a movie. That's what Hasbro did with Transformers and G.I. Joe in the 80s.

Again, in one week The Angry Birds Movie has made double its budget.

Transformers in the 1980s was an infamous box office flop. GI Joe, therefore, had its theatrical release canceled and was a direct to video film.

You're letting nostalgia ruin this for you. It's a terrible movie, but you're not its audience. The people who are its audience are flocking (no pun) to it. Even correcting for inflation, The Angry Birds has made exponentially more than the GI Joe and Transformers 1980s movies combined. Combined! Transformers made $5.8MM on a $6MM budget. Angry Birds has made $150MM on a $73MM budget.

It looks awful, but clearly they did something right. Hasbro, meanwhile, did not. Not until the new Transformers movies, which actually look worse, yet print money.

If I write "1 + 1 = 2" will you at least acknowledge that's correct?

My guess is they're sitting on HL3 so it can be the honey pot, if they make a major play into a new market in future.

Me: Do not try and believe Half Life 3 exists. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
MisterBenn: What truth?
Me: There is no Half Life 3.
MisterBenn: There is no Half Life 3?
Me: Then you'll see, that it is not the reality that bends, it is only yourself.

I had a video taken down because it was a snippet of commercial for a drug with a minute long list of side effects including "sudden death". The drug company's marketing firm was very adamant about my theft of their property, and if I didn't want to see the inside of a court room I would 100% comply with their demands to take down the video.

I randomly decided to watch the first Addams Family movie the other day. I don't think I had seen it since I was in the single digits. It's still a pretty fun movie that holds up. The acting, setting, script, all on point.

Is that one where Wednesday and Pugsley do that bloody play?

The Division's rating on Steam has gotten worse since launch.

58% (out of 25,208 reviews) overall: Mixed
21% (out of 5,837 reviews) recent: Mostly Negative

21%... wow. That's like "Tom Green" land.

Stupid gaming execs making movies out of games that shouldn't be movies. Nobody is going to watch a Fruit Ninja movie. There's no story. It's something you quickly play to pass the time.

This is why video game movies is going to be retired for the next decade. The catalog of games being chosen to make into movies is lame!

- Ratchet and Clank
- Angry Birds
- Fruit Ninja

Valve doesn't need to make Half-Life 3. They make a ton of money from Steam and from their existing library of games.

On a side note Gabe is a meany pants for not officially confirming Half-Life 3 is coming.

Not shocked by this. Releasing a half-finished game to meet a release date close to the theatrical premiere of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" shows a complete lack of vision. A true visionary is someone who would see a single-player campaign as absolutely vital to maximize Battlefront's success; even if that means the game's release date doesn't coincide with a film.

A "Battlefront" sequel is currently planned for a 2017 release, one that will feature connections to the new movies, and one that should this time feature a campaign.

This is the textbook definition of insanity.

Soderlund says: "Are we happy with the 75 rating? No. Is that something we're going to cure going forward? Absolutely. The depth and breadth is something that's proving to be more and more important."

Star Wars Battlefront isn't "the official game of the movie" material so stop treating it as such.

The EA BOD should fire Patrick Soderlund immediately. He's damaging the Star Wars video game property.

One is proper English and the other isn't?

I don't think either one is proper English.

Yeah. Both is meme speak. I don't understand either.

This reminds me of that episode of TNG "Darmok". The language of the Tamarian culture was basically meme speak that only they could understand.

Nope

Not sure if "nope" means "yes this problem is wrong" or "no, you're wrong". So for clarification:

8 + 5 = 13
8 - 5 = 3
concatenate: 13, 3

Every line in the link is formatted:

x + y = [x-y][x+y]

Yes. I was having a brain-fart. Minus, then Plus. My bad. Thanks for correcting.
