You've been lying low way too long!
Oh, so now you're calling me a liar?
You know, I can't put my finger on it but for some reason I'm in a really, really good mood right now!

So it's fine for tens of thousands of children to suffer the weeks and weeks the pain and indignity (and possibly death) of a completely preventable disease, why exactly? Because some rich selfish assholes have fake beliefs about science and think other people's children should risk takers to keep their own safe? Douchecanoe.

I haven't purchased a Blu-Ray anything...ever. I don't see the point. By the time I invest in the technology, and invest in building a significant library, "Super Uber Mega Deluxe 9000 SEE-THE-SWEAT-DRIP-OFF-A-HOBBIT'S-BALLSACK-HAIR 2048K" is the new standard. Fuck it, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and the like are good enough for me. If I want to watch a movie, it's for the story and spectacle. The fact that it is .075% less black than flavor-of-the-month optical media is pointless to me. I just don't have the crippling level of autism or OCD needed to notice it.
You make it sound like it is costly, timely and hard. You just go pay $50 like a DVD player back in the day, plug it in (now you got netflix to) and you rent or buy like you did DVDs. So you don't have to try and complex it all up with a bunch o words like that.
I agree, for many they are happy with the quality they do get via cable and streaming. I'm just saying in my case it is noticeably better than anything else right now (I haven't seen home 4k feeds yet), but if one doesn't care they don't care. I still do and there are still several levels of videophiles above me.
I've said about 5 years ago, expect streaming bit rates to be played with and lowered when it allows more content to be offered and saves the companies $$$. That is the nature of the beast. With BR there is no compromise like that going on, they can give you full rez at high bit rates on the same single disk.

A market will remain but the relevance of physical media has decreased and I believe will continue to do so. It will be a long time before enough people have a good enough connection for consumer physical media to be entirely irrelevant but I think it is fair to say that it fading.
(I like Windows 8 but hey... )

I like that the image quality is so much better on Bluray than any streaming I've done. I mean, if it's a dark movie, and so many are these days, you get so much more detail in the shadows.
I dislike that I have to own Blurays. I have something like 300 DVDs. Not only will I probably only want to watch maybe 10 of those ever again, but they look terrible on modern TVs. They haven't held up. They're a whole bunch of wasted space.

I hope "Ultra HD Bluray" is a working title and not what it will actually be called. Can they cram any more buzz terms in there. It really should be short and sweet and able to have a meaningful abbreviation.

About the only thing I can say about Ted Cruz is what an idiot. His views only represent a tiny minority in this country.

Well, someone is gunning for the "Jack Thompson Award 2015." Trying to take the most violent game title away from Manhunt?
I find as I get older, my desire to play shooting games wanes. This wouldn't have interested me in my younger days of course either. Killing for killing's sake has never interested me, I've always preferred my shooters to be goal oriented with enemies as obstacles to be overcome, violently or not. And I've always preferred shooters where I killed aliens, ghosts, monsters, zombies, or what have you over humans, these days even moreso.
I'm really not sure who they're appealing to here, honestly. The frat-boy, dudebro demographic that will get drunk and play this with their buds and get a bunch of laughs at all the over-the-top deaths? I'd wish them luck, but I can't in good conscience.
