That was an excellent review, Slick, nicely done. It was a tad long however. You are, afterall, doing a game review, not submitting a doctoral thesis.

Does that site provide its writers the copies all the time? If so it's a site I'd visit regularly. I'm only ever interested in reviews that are composed by people not beholden to the publishers/developers.

I loathed the first game and in spite of your positive review I can't se myself forking over dime one for this game until it hits the bargain bin. Cheers.

Nigel Tufnel said it best...There's something about this that's so black, it's like how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

Seriously, that is pretty freaky man.

For those who think the parties are the same just look at the way they vote.

GOP - 215 for
Dems/GOP - 190/15 against

Agreed. I'd love to see some more adult oriented movies where the heroes are older, more grizzled and bitter after their decades of the grind fighting crime.

Logan?

Haven't seen it yet so I don't know but that's what I've heard.

ITER will produce heat, not electricity. But if it works — if it produces more energy than it consumes, which smaller fusion experiments so far have not been able to do — it could lead to plants that generate electricity without the climate-affecting carbon emissions of fossil-fuel plants or most of the hazards of existing nuclear reactors that split atoms rather than join them.

Yeah Mr. White! Yeah science!

When Marvel made the deal with Sony to use the Peter Parker Spider-Man in the MCU I was hoping that just once we would get a full grown man version of Peter instead of this continual high school retread.

I know that for a good percentage of the comic book's lifetime Peter Parker was in either high school or college...but isn't 6 movies enough? (oh wait, my bad...got to cover all the demographics right? :P)

That said, for what they chose to do Holland seems like a great fit.

PS: Good news is that Legion is awesome. Bad news is that Iron Fist sounds like it was written by teenage interns on their first project and the pacing makes my pet tortoise get up and leave the room out of boredom.

Agreed. I'd love to see some more adult oriented movies where the heroes are older, more grizzled and bitter after their decades of the grind fighting crime.

What difference does it make if they can't crack your phone. Don't open it and you're in contempt and will rot in prison until you do. Big Brother has all the angles covered.

Planet Earth II is “need a new TV” propaganda—if you get the right version.

I haven't seen the 4k version of Planet Earth II, but I've watched a few episodes in 1080HD. It's the best wildlife show I've ever seen, bar none, and I've made a point of watching a lot of them over the years. Very recommended. It is absolutely stunning.

Agreed. I've looked at the 4Ks in the store and I really just don't care about visual fidelity that much. I've watched this on my 5 year old 36" 1080P and I'm fine with that. And yes, it's a mind-blowing doc.

Are they hoping the demo will generate more sales? Seem kind of desperate.
I will check it out, but I doubt I will buy the game. I didn't hear too many good things about it.
Metacritic looks pretty fugly for this one too.

That was my first thought too given how badly it's been panned. And they're not doing themselves any favors with the pricing. $80 for the regular game and $104 for the deluxe? Fucking lol!

Yeah it's rainy and cool but at least it's climbing. The 14 day doesn't look much better with everything in the 5-10C range. Still consistent positives are a good thing. One thing I like about the Weather Network's site is how they show the historical highs and lows for the day. In 1996 the record low here was -12 degrees and in 1998 it was a whopping 23 degrees, wow! Wish we had some of that right now.

That's aggravatingly short on details. All it says is the driver of the other vehicle failed to yield. So why didn't the auton swerve away at the last second? Suspending everything for a full investigation is warranted by the sounds of it.

No, it looks terrible.

Re: the portion sizes. I meant US sizes have always been larger relative to the rest of the world. I still remember the first time I went to a Dennys. My folks took me and my cuz to Disney World for the 1976 bicentennial celebrations - it was awesome. And we were all flabbergasted when our food arrived and started looking around at other people's stuff. Ever since it's always been really evident. Not so much in better upscale places but chains for sure.

I can't even make it to the end of the first season. The puzzle of the show is intriguing, but actually watching an episode I find really boring. Characters are not interesting, dialog is poor and unmemorable.

I've made it 5 or 6 which is more than I usually give something I find so dull.

Huh, it's one of the few series I found immensely enjoyable. It's nice to see a modern show with some intelligence involved in it. A lot of the series folks around here talk about I just don't get the draw for them. Conversely I found Tom Hardy's Taboo painfully boring. I love his work, but that series just blows.

I was going to check out Iron Fist but I felt severely misled by the title and was hoping it was something entirely different. Hi-o! Biker

Haven't caught up with this season of Black Sails yet but I like that series so far. Yarr!

And the new Star Trek is coming this fall. I sincerely doubt it won't suck but we may get lucky.

I may watch The Santa Clarita Diet simply for Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. Anyone watched it?

Slick wrote on Mar 26, 2017, 17:54:
It's hard to sympathise with Lexmark, as they chose a path that drove down the inial cost of their printing hardware to make more money down the road through ink cartridge gauging.

The rough math is about 4.5mL of ink costs about $30, which makes it over $5000 USD per pound.

Now they can't put the genie back into the bottle, competitors have similar printer hardware for just as cheap (often under $100), so charging a fair price for what the hardware is worth is out of the question.

ergo, fuckem. They've made their bed. And fuck them twice for thinking that people can't use their own ink. You're not leasing the printer from the, you bought it.

I can only imagine this legal case turning out very very bad for lots of consumers going forward. I might be mistaken, but I think that it would essentially overrule any "right-to-repair" legislation trying to be passed at the state level, as they can tell you exactly how you're supposed to use the product, and any other way is illegal.

far-reaching consequences indeed.

The one upside is right-to-repair has really come to the forefront across all spectrums. I'd imagine before too long companies will have to acquiesce or go bankrupt. There was a farmer who wrote a good piece on it and all the shit going on with John Deere and how farmers are abandoning them in droves to buy from companies that don't do that shit. As this issue gets more press I expect it to gain more traction going forward. Hell, it could be a good marketing tool if your company states it supports your right to repair or modify their products because you own it!
