Not a 'Titanorak', Blue?

A lot of people are, and not because of James Cameron's 'epic'. I've been reading about it for over 30 years - it's a hell of a story, not just about a ship that sinks. My 2 cents anyway

Not even the Irish celebrate it? Are you serious?

Speaking as an Irishman, in Ireland, the morning after St. Paddy's Day (*not* Patty!) - and who (like everyone else in this nation) has Monday off as a bank holiday because of it, and who went to his local parade yesterday and saw the Dublin one on tv, I can tell you - you're talking total rubbish. Sorry, garbage to Americans.

Reaaaaaaal constructive, that. But then, a Bluesnews comment always has to be filled with ridiculous, over the top cynicism to show how cool you all are.

Most of you guys couldn't write something balanced if your lives depended on it.

yes you need characters that have emotions and different agenda's that you can understand and even relate to, but people watch a zombie show for the zombie factor and that should always come first

Yeah, cause the fact that they're surrounded by zombies in a zombie filled world just isn't enough. In fact, why not just have a story about zombies, shambling around, from their point of view??? Oh, wait, "Land of the Dead" tried to do that and it was SHIT.

You need the drama to connect with the characters. And life does go on, as do domestics.

well fuck fuckity FUCK silly me for buying into MS's Bullshit. Fuck em. A curse on Bill Gates's Soul.

Sounds more like you could have a potential RAM issue. Download memtestX86 and try that, see if there's a hardware issue. Wonder if it turns out to be the case will you take back what you said?

Your google-fu is weak. I'm already past 30.

Oh, no! (Now, that's sarcasm, by the way...) But is my inference correct? You're not actually old at all, are you? Sheesh, and you talk about me missing something.

I'm bothering to post back here as I went to see Avatar last night; IMHO a simple story/plot visually stunningly well told. Would it have been the same experience without having a small chunk of plastic on my face for 2 hours 40 minutes? No.

As it was, the "ooohs" and "aaahs" from the crowd tell me a different story from what I've seen posted here.

People do like 3D.

Avatar's not the greatest flick by any means, but I'd make a point cinematically speaking that it's the most stunning looking film to date.

Would the effect be lessened without the polarised lenses? Absolutely. As it was, most everyone I asked afterwards felt like they'd flown on the wings of an alien creature, or visited a different planet. Would it work for every movie?

No.

Does that mean it's useless, inconvenient technology?
A huge mistake
?

Get a life, folks.

Hi. You're new here huh? Oh yes, you are I see. Only two years. Allow me to introduce myself, I'm old and cranky. Not quite as old and cranky as some other posters like Ant, or the man who broke the forums. But still old.

Aaah, I see! This is actually a pissing contest! Because you've been here longer, you're cooler than I am. How foolish of me. I bow to your longevity, cause that means... well, nothing, doesn't it? I've been reading the site pretty much since its inception - does that make me better than you?

No we understand exactly what type it is. It's not polarized glasses, they're polarized shutter lenses. They've been around for years. The stuff that's been used in the theatres come in two flavors. Red/Green and Polarized.

Fair enough...

So, you take it, plug it in. And you're still wearing something on your face. Now for those of us in humanity who wear glasses(yay?) and don't wear contacts(yay) for various reasons. This stuff is still terrible.

Er, what? As someone who wore glasses for years, and couldn't wear contact lenses, I had to put up with, gee, let me think, telescopes, microscopes and binoculars that were all 'incompatible' with me being a glasses wearer. But you know what? I got on with it - I didn't moan about them being shit technology simply because it was a 'slight' inconvenience to use. (I've had LASIK since, incidentally.)

Now sometime eventually it'll get to the point where no glasses are needed. The TFT stuff was a good step forward, but way too expensive.

Sure, and if my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle! What I mean is, could you not just enjoy the spectacular 3D views for now, with this technology? (Again, in decent films such as Up etc. - I am aware it can be just a gimmick too...)

Maybe I should just use the /. idea. RTFA, because most of us did and you didn't.

Or maybe you could quit being an arrogant, cynical gobshite? I know I could do with that too, from time to time

Oh, and if my spies are correct (googling your username ), you're not old and cranky - you're under 30 for Chrissakes! Just wait for that hump

Well, for what it's worth, I've played all three (AC1, 2 and Saboteur). AC1 - Xbox and PC
AC2 - Xbox
Saboteur - Xbox and PC

So far, IMHO, Saboteur is the best. Granted, I do need to play more AC2, but it really felt like an expansion with better graphics rather than a sequel.

Uh, it doesn't hurt that Assassin's Creed 2 was a genuinely better game than this in about every respect.

I couldn't disagree more, but then, I can recognise that as opinion. Can you?

Christ, the cynical posts!

Having actually played the game (both 360 and PC), IMHO, it's GTA WWII. Great fun, great dialogue (terrible Oirish accent, but funny delivery!) and cracking gameplay.

I own PCs with both nVidia and ATI cards, happen to be playing it on an nVidia, and it's perfect under Win 7 x64...

This is nothing short of stunning, and on Bluesnews of all places...

Almost all of these comments show a COMPLETE lack of understanding regarding how this kind of 3d tech works!

It won't use clunky shutter glasses. It doesn't use those poxy red/green film glasses (anaglyph, as that kind of 3d is known) - it's the kind of 3d that Pixar's Up! used to amazing effect. (Yes, there are glasses, but they're like shades, so it's not all bad).

Should every movie use it? No - it's not needed for every movie. But if your TV is capable of 120hz (and a lot are) and if the tech comes as standard in new (and cheaper all the time) Bluray players, ask yourself this -

WHY NOT??? Jesus, why are people so cynical?

Wait, when did 10 euro equal 10 dollars? According to XE.com, it's more like 10 euro is almost 15 dollars! (Approx. 14.9654 USD at the time of writing).

How can they justify this? Now, I'm not just talking about the ten euro/dollar example; price differences on almost all software varies hugely when comparing EU/US. It's ridiculous!

You know, as 'conspiracy theory' as that all sounds, isn't it a bit coincidental?

Battlefield 1943 - delayed on PC, consoles get it first...
Batman : Arkham Asylum delayed - on PC, consoles get it first...
CoD : MW2 - delayed on PC, consoles get it first...

And these are all recent - I'm sure there are more too but can't recall at the moment! You know, I'm sure I read somewhere that most 360/Wii/PS3 owners own a PC too [yes, citation needed, but can't remember where!]; if you can get a cracked, readily available copy for the PC, why shell out for the console version?

However, if you simply 'had' to play it, and the console versions are out sooner... You get my thinking? Yes, I know, the 360 and the Wii have rampant piracy too, but no where near the levels of the PC.

Or am I smoking crack? Whaddya think, folks?

The third pack will "enhance the ingle-player game"? Does that mean Michael Landon will be in it? Geddit? Laura Ingalls Wilder? No... Is this thing on?

Here's a spoiler free review for you, Blue!

Wolverine is one of the worst films I've ever seen; that's not from a fanboy expecting the second coming, now! All I wanted was some decent hokum. This film is a mess, and I'm shocked that Jackman not only appeared in it, but seemed to bring none of Wolverine's prior charm to the role at all.

1 star out of 5, slightly better than Ishtar, IMHO.

Yeah, but what's weird are the way the reviews all just ignore the i7. Most of them are, "As you can see, the new Phenom IIs trounce the intel quads". Yeah, but the i7 whizzes all over those, making AMD (as far as I can see) about 18 months behind?
