I only just watched Serenity about a month ago, and holy shit, talk about a gutpunch at the end.

For a series where the heroes comically never got hurt, despite (for example) standing in the open while 30+ armed gunmen are shooting at them, Serenity is a fucking brutal sendoff. And seriously, (secret) You couldn't give Wash a better end than THAT???


I think people said that the reason there's a tonal shift between the movie and the TV series is because Fox put a bunch of demands and limitations on Whedon for TV, but eh... I liked the TV series a lot more than the movie. Everyone was angry and punchy, and I just didn't find it much fun.

With killing off members of the cast, I prefer to think the movie didn't happen...

Considering that Serenity was made 3 years after Firefly was cancelled was a miracle in itself. I honestly couldn't believe that the movie was made in the first place. I'm glad that it was made but yeah, it's a bit of a downer. I'm guessing that Whedon realized that this 'miracle' was probably his last shot at doing anything with the show and tried to wrap it up and send it on it'd way, so to speak. I loved the series too but I was also glad that they made the movie. To me it just ended the series by saying,"...and that's what happened in the crew's biggest and most important adventure to date. Now, they turn towards the 'verse and continue their lives, we just won't see it." Kinda the way I look at it anyway.

I played the last free week and I had fun with the Arena Commander thingy where you just shot down the A.I. ships. The combat, to me anyway, is waaaaaaay better than Elite, hands down. The ship feels good with a joystick now. When I played before, the handling seemed to be off a bit, but it seems they have that nailed down now. When I tried to play in the PU and do some of the missions the lag was pretty extreme though. My comp is middle-road at best but it was just disappointing that I couldn't really play with the other people that much. I have to say also that the people that I met online there were nice and helpful too. You can see SO MUCH potential with this game, I just wish they had more to show.

News Comments > Planetoids DLC for Stellaris
7. Re: Planetoids DLC for Stellaris Aug 4, 2016, 15:14 SlimRam
 
I've been looking to get into a 4x space grand strategy game but i'm not quite sure where to jump in. From what I've read DW:U is mind boggling huge but you can let the A.I. handle what you don't understand/want to deal with. Stellaris is not as huge, still has a few bugs, and the mid-game can drag. I'm looking for a 4x that has good enemy A.I. but the different alien races actually have character. I've heard that you can't really go wrong with Galactic Civ. 3 also. I dunno, kinda confusing

Well, from what I have gathered, the Opening Ceremony will start with The Parade of Nations. This involves representatives from each country standing in a circle, holding their country's flag with a number on the flag that shows how many of their citizens have been killed in Rio.
Next, the President of the Organizing Committee will give his speech/apology for having the event in Rio and his condolences to all the family members who are surely going to lose a loved one during the entire Olympics. He then knees the Brazil Head of State directly in the balls while throwing him off the podium.
Finally, the the torch will be brought into the stadium. By torch, I mean a homeless man set on fire in the parking lot and told that there was an extinguisher (and a bottle of aftershave to drink) inside the stadium. To which he is quickly wrangled to the Olympic cauldron which is, of course, a vat of feces, hypodermic needles, and pubic hair, and kicked into it.

The whole pageant is a guaranteed 3 Kleenex affair that will forever be in the memories of those who survived it, for a lifetime.

As long as female-double-self-fisting (or, as it's known in the porn business as 'The Self-Love High Five') isn't one of the things cracked down on, I don't really see a problem.

  • Netflix chief explains why he didn't save Agent Carter.

  • I didn't care much for Agent Carter but my wife seemed to like it ok. I always thought Hayley Atwell was a cutie and appreciated her sizable physique. Embedded within the article was a video of the cast of Agents of Shield talking about getting GHOST RIDER for their next season, OH YEAH!

    If you watch this entire video you get a really good idea of what to expect with the game. Unfortunately, after you watch the entire video you realize...yeah, that's about all there is to the game; exactly what everyone has been saying there is. There is no campaign but I do hope there are some type of missions you can take e.g. escort, transporting cargo, smuggling, taxi service, gun for hire, patrol a sector, collect data, etc. I think that would give the game a bit longer legs. Still, I don't know if this is a game that can hold your attention for all that long.

    The double hand transplant is creepy, i would rather have the face transplant.

    Heard about that dude that's going to have a full body transplant? Or head transplant. Depending on how you look at it. The operation is probably going to happen this year:

    Strange shit

    The article said that the doctor was going to be doing penis transplants also. Being an organ donor, I told my doctor that I was interested in donating my penis. My doctor, in between laughs, told me that she had seen the size of my penis and honestly believed that someone receiving it would actually be more traumatized by the small size than not receiving the transplant at all.
