@Agent-Zero (to end an entirely too long chain)

If you could travel easily between planets, why would you choose the only one that is over 71% water if it killed you? That was my point. Semantics in debating a subjectively bad movie's flaws are pretty pointless...

That was all I was saying.

according to your personal map of all planetary composition across the entire galaxy?

Feel free to contact NASA if you have more info, but yes. I think it is, based on current information, very rare.

Unless I missed a /s there.

looks like you need to update your "current information" then..

https://www.nasa.gov/jpl/the-solar-system-and-beyond-is-awash-in-water


I don't mean to be argumentative, but those are not planets that rain. If you die from a glass of a child's water you don't want to inhabit a planet that has rain. Never mind monsoons etc. This is getting too detailed, because it was just a movie, but that part just really never held up to logic for me - even in a movie sense.

Hydrogen and Oxygen are two of the most abundant elements in the universe. Hydrogen is expected to be something like 3/4 of all observable matter in the universe, and Oxygen is third on the list behind Helium.

Water (H2O) is widely considered the most abundant molecule in the universe (outside of H2 and O2) because it is comprised of the most common elements possible. Helium is inert and forms no molecules.

"Liquid water" is likely a fairly rare occurrence because it relies on a specific set of temperatures and pressures to exist, but H2O is everywhere.

True, but I think that is diving into semantics. If they wanted to avoid water it would be very easy.

The Sixth Sense, even the Village, I really liked all of those Shyamalan films.

I don't know, I could be an outlier here, but both of those films bugged me.

Cole Sear's parent never even bothered to even meet the person they left a child with many times? A plane or loud car never went near The Village?

I also know you excluded Signs, but aliens who are killed by water wanting to invade one of the insanely few places in the galaxy that are mostly comprised of it was also wonky.

More power to those that enjoy his films, but I am not a fan.

Anyone who hasn't picked up LIMBO yet really should consider it at that price. It may not be a game changer, but it is well worth it at that price.

Saitek and Mad Catz are not the same company or are they?

They were the same company. When Mad Catz got into financial trouble they sold off Saitek to Logitech (a match made in shit quality heaven).

If you don't like either company, that is fine, everyone gets an opinion. However, when has Logitech ever been known for "shit quality"? Their mice and keyboards are just about indestructible, assuming you don't down them in liquid, and even then they often live on.
My M705 stopped clicking, so...

Maybe I was just lucky, but I had a MX-510 that made it about a decade and even then it only died to a short in the cable. I still have a MX-512 and a G500 going strong as far as mice go. I paid less than $40 for each of them. I don't use it as my main keyboard anymore, but I used a G15 from when it came out until now and it also still works fine. The LCD display was useful for seeing who was talking in Ventrilo while also displaying a clock before I went with dual monitors.

Now if you were talking about their speakers...

Such a fucking awesome adventure game. LucasArts at its peak.

Bonus: Mark Hamill voice acting.

I wasn't as into LucasArts adventure games as most (I don't think), but even I loved Full Throttle.

Well of course. ZeniMax are mainly the suits of Bethesda, not the same. Either way, ZeniMax guaranteed the dumbing down of Fallout by buying it, the franchise is horse manure now. Worse, Mutated Brahmin Shit.

Fallout 4 was a pretty solid game. I doubt ZeniMax had anything to do with the good parts, but it is what it is. Greatest Fallout? Not by any means, but still a good game. Creating a big budget game involves dealing with the suits. I don't think it is ideal either, but please, that was a decent game.

The PS4 took this long to add external HD support? That seems really odd. I just assumed that since the One supported them the PS4 did too.

Gladiolus and Ignis's VO actors play it a bit flat for my liking. Noctis' VO actor does a great job, and OOOH MY GOD, the Chancellor's VO actor just makes me cream.

Really? I agree on Gladio, but I actually rather liked Ignis VOs. Darin De Paul definitely stole the show as Ardyn. He is also Reinhardt in Overwatch IIRC.

It's a shame this kind of crap just interferes with adoption of new tech. VR will never get off the ground with this kind of nonsense going on.

It was probably inevitable, but yep, this isn't helping.

I doubt, but wonder if this will include college football. If so, I wouldn't mind paying $10 for that during the season. CBS ends up covering a lot and even DVRing it and skipping through the commercials gets tedious. I think I can say with confidence that they have the most per game of any network...

I tried the game way back in early 2013 (I think it was still in beta?) and just couldn't get into it. Too slow and too much killing crabs on a beach for what seemed like eternity. That said, it looks like a lot has changed. I will definitely be giving it another go.
