Really, can we collectively stop caring so much about the platform? I mean exclusives are divisive enough, can we just focus on MS actually trying to make a PC game? And weather that game will be any good? Do they have any solid studios left that they haven't bankrupted who can pull off a real PC game?
It doesn't matter if the game is decent if the platform ruins the experience. I received Gears Of War 4 with my graphics card and I have never had such a terrible experience - the download constantly stalling, restarting, corrupting, etc. It took me weeks to actually get it installed and running - registry resets, deleting hidden folders, etc. Turns out it was because of telemetry data being sent in the background which NetLimiter blocks, despite no other platform having an issue with it.

I will never buy any game on the Windows Store. At least Uplay and Origin I can tolerate, even if they're far from ideal. If Microsoft was serious about PC gaming it would create a gaming hub that acts as a centralised access for games from all platforms, allowing gamers to manage games from multiple stores. And if it cared about its own digital platform it would take the best aspects of the competition, rather than creating a restrictive DRM hell with an appalling UX.

Halo Wars 2 could have been a decent game but it was ruined by using a console interface, pay-to-win and the Windows Store.

In defense of MS, they're a small company that doesn't have the resources to put into making things run well.

since when has platform exclusivity made any gamer excited?

QFT.

If it's a port, make it proper and give it full PC support.
If it's not a port, then it takes full advantage of the strengths of the PC platform.

He's a millionaire for sure, he was just working there because he enjoyed it and/or because he'd be bored otherwise. Must have changed his mind about one of those.

Maybe he had an American Beauty moment: quit your high stress job, buy a muscle car, and work a low-stress job at a burger or coffee shop.

Set up for what? They never took away anyone's unlimited plan before, lots of people were grandfathered in for years when it wasn't available to new customers. But even if they would do that, it's not like you're stuck in the same contract forever.
They may not have taken them away, but the tried every trick in the book to get people off those old unlimited plans including lying, threatening, and throttling.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. This wasn't some kid, he is 24 years old. Unless he has some mental condition which reduces his capacity to act like an adult it would seem a criminal conviction is not out of line.

Yeah I don't have a problem with the punishment the judge handed down. I was more remarking on how having a criminal record continues to punish people *after* they've served their time. It makes it hard for people to reintegrate with society. Maybe it should be expunged after a certain amount of time. Like a couple of years for a crime like this, but never for murder, for example.

Judge convicts, punishes man who threw gator into Wendy's.

The $500 fine and 75 hours of community service are peanuts compared to the actual punishment: a criminal record. That black mark will cost this man hundreds of thousands of dollars over his lifetime.

I wonder if there's an argument against cruel and unusual punishment in there somewhere.

I really don't fault the movie for any of this stuff though. It's all based in scientific fact and was close enough IMO.
In general I agree, hence my "suspend my disbelief" mantra. But again, when the actors specifically talk about something and then don't manage to make the obvious, next step, logical conclusion, it is annoying.

Fair enough, but the holes were much smaller, many fewer, and better integrated than those in Prometheus. I'm still pissed about that movie.

There's a simple measure of whether or not you have too much junk:

Can you fit two cars in your garage?

No one has a garage here, never mind a two car garage.

Why do you make that assumption?

There's an even bigger hole. In order for that time dilation effect to occur, the planet itself must be traveling and near the speed of light. Which means that little landing skiff would have to approach the speed of light to catch it. And then escape the massive gravitational pull of a black hole that accelerates a planet to nearly the speed of light to return to the mothership.
While that might be a bigger hole, it is far less "offensive" because they don't specifically talk about it in the film. Like I said, I do my best to suspend my disbelief, it is a movie after all and the purpose is entertainment. But when you actually have the actors saying things which amount to "Gee, aren't we idiots!"... kind of hard to forgive.

Fair enough. My plot hole also requires practical knowledge of Einstein's relativity theories, which many audience members may not have. But, yeah, being scientists, they should have been able to understand that Dr. Miller would have only landed a few minutes before them *before* they went down to the planet. Also should have been able to see those giant waves from space.
