The whole movie felt very rushed, going from scene to scene to fit as much reboot and backstory in as possible. I'm pretty sure there was a cut to another scene during a lightsaber battle :S

Kind of like the first Lord of Rings movie, where are introducing a new character by their full name every few minutes. There is just too much of everything.

It suffers from way to much convenient events to tie things together instead of having good reasons.

The little BB droid also had the most charisma, out of all of the actors I cared the most about it, I didn't want it to get lost or mistreated.


What they really should have done was something a bit more simple, focused on one or two characters in a fairly simple and interesting story instead of squeezing an epic adventure, backstory, and setting up another one.

They would have been better off doing a really focused and detailed character driven movie. Perhaps a survival story of all of the Jedi's being hunted down in order 66. And the movie could have been about 1 Jedi trying to survive, hide, and of course fight. Perhaps even dying at the end.

But no, we have a glossy covers band repeat the better bits from the previous movies into an unoriginal star wars medley. And infact I have a feeling like many movies today, the script was written by a computer, or at the very least a spreadsheet with data containing the highest rated moments from previous 6 movies. It's all there, but it's simply going through the motions.

EDIT: Also
Where are all of the old people in space? Apart from the 3 people from the originals, everyone is under 25...Is that a Disney thing?
The whole thing felt like high budget cosplay to me, instead of genuine movie.

I've been cynical on this game in the past and I'm big enough to admit this is sexy as hell. Amazing atmosphere rendering, love the planetary glow from orbit view.

Agreed. This is the first thing I've seen from RSI that has stunned me.


EDIT: The main challenge of Star Citizen will of course be filling the entire universe with interesting things to do. Most open world and procedurally generated world games have only a few game mechanics to play with. There might be a near infinite amount of slightly different circumstances to use the few mechanics in, and there are often mechanics that build up the base mechanics in order to make it more involved, but after a while it becomes clear that you are really just doing the same thing over and over, and it you always find the most efficient way of doing it, and it becomes routine.

As a climber I'm kinda offended that this doesn't seem to use your feet at all. Feet are arguably more important than hands in climbing. I know it would be very difficult to make a good foot interface though. I could picture this game actually being interesting if it had real challenging routes in which you use your feet and hands. Climbing is puzzle solving, and there are nearly infinite combinations possible. Such a game could actually be a decent trainer for new situations.

What about if some rock climbing centers map out their artificial rock obstacles, and then match that with a 3D rendered world like in the this teaser. You pop on your VR helmet, position sensors on your feet and hands.

Now when you climb at your local climbing center, you wouldn't be climbing in a warehouse, you'd be at the top of a mountain



The best part would be that you still use your hands and feet to feel out the real world, while you see that object completely differently (although same shape and position) in the virtual world. It would be immersion level 100.




Well I would pay to experience that, and a fun way to get some exercise


EDIT: Looks like someone is onto it already, but it's far from commercial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnGIz9kkd_E

where is the Trek of old that dealt with human issues and with the human spirit, with the infinite reaches and wonders of space and with the mystery of the unknown. That is what Trek should be about, not this Michael Bay bullshit...Fuck you Abrams, fuck you very much.

That pretty much sums up Star Trek

The Trekked and the Furious.

My favorite part of the trailer is when Captain Picard (Vin Diesel) recites his activities into the log computer. "Captains log, today we put unnecessary illumination around the Enterprise to make it look ghetto and drag raced a Cardassian frigate using only impulse propulsion. *indistinguishable deep voice cool talk mutter*. End of log.

EDIT: looks like someone else has beat me to the punch http://www.neonbubble.com/neonimg/1/tng-picard.jpg LOL

Damn! that dirt and those rock textures look incredibly real even at 1080p.

It's a shame that the game is really shallow and boring, with almost non functional vehicles.

I actually think the problem is that their lifecycle is too short. There is hardly any reason to not use a phone that is 3 to 5 years old for a lot of people.

Apart from browser speed and perhaps a better camera what can an S6 do that a galaxy S1 or 2 can't do?

I'm not sure I see the big deal in this. I'm driving the car out in public after all, if somebody followed me and made notes I'd think it's weird, but I couldn't care less otherwise.

I wouldn't want it to be recording my conversations or recording me while I pick my nose at the traffic lights, but other than that, why are people so opposed to it? (genuine curious)

This is great, I could never bring myself to play the first system shock because it was so ugly and clunky.

I would totally buy this.

Hell I'll by all my friends a copy if they make it coop too.

Also, if SS3 really becomes a reality, I truly hope they find the correct dev/publisher group to handle it to ensure the core mechanics stay.

Please let it be none of these

  • ZeniMax/Bethseda (will turn it into a watered down, open-world explore a spaceship game with buggy Gamebryo and Dialog Wheel, and hope the mods will fix it)

  • Gearbox (will take the IP and do nothing with it, and instead contract it to some chuckleheads while actually working on Borderlands 3)

  • Microsoft Studios (turn System Shock into F2P, a console game, or just do nothing...forever)

  • EA/DICE (turn into a linear action game, while trimming down on lots of features + potential season pass material)

  • Bioware ("reimagine" System Shock 3 with modern bioware-RPG mechanics, a color coded ended, potential MMO-style quests, and plenty of romance encounters including Shodan)


  • Am I missing any? Sorry, had to do it.

    +No Bioshock Disney graphics please.
    +No regenerating health (unless it's an ability)

    SS2 was one of the first (and few) games that actually scared me a little. I always played it in the dark and the voices directly behind me, with headphones on, freaked my shit...I LOVED IT!

    Agreed! The "Join US!!" being said in a weird detuned voice from the parasited zombies. And then the "I'm sorry..." occassionaly as they realise they aren't in control of their own bodies.

    creep as! That game made me sweat and raised my heart rate that's for sure. And it wasn't done it a cheap way. There was just a general sense of dread and hopelessness.
