Because, without any clarification, his comment comes off as a bit daft (at least that's how I interpreted it & I'm assuming that Quinn felt the same).
Sounds like y'all are actually agreeing on everything except the definition of the word "respect".
Beamer wrote on Oct 26, 2022, 08:33:Deviations from one entertainment medium to another is par for the course & expected. But that doesn't automatically equal not respecting the source material. Also outright disrespecting the source material is foolhardy almost always ends in failure. You can show respect for the source material all while transferring a book to another entertainment medium like TV or video games & making changes here & there to fit that medium. These two concepts are not mutually exclusive.
I don't think tv needs to "respect" source material, as it's a different medium and can't convey ideas in the same way, so changes are needed.

Worst movie of all Marvel movies imo. Hope the game helps you give a shit about anything and anyone.
Nothing is worse than the second Thor movie dude. Whatever the next worst MCU movie is, it's not even close to that atrocity.
*Ironman 3 quietly backs up into the shadows happy that it went unnoticed*
I was wondering how IM3 went unscathed. Black Panther is probably third worst for me, but it was still okay. IMO, Thor 2 and Iron Man 3 are the worst MCU movies by a wide margin.

That's a silly article. The only thing that should make you feel ashamed is if you can't pay your bills due to your video game spending habits. As long as you're doing ok financially, who cares if you bought a few games that will add to your backlog and you were granted some points for it to use on profile fluff?
I picture the writer being some 32 year old shaved head millennial with a nose piercing.

Unsurprising...These guys couldn't hold a spark to the GoD's roaring flames --the guys who created the original Rune we all know and love many years ago. The only thing I ever saw these guys do with "New Rune" (like new Coke..;)) was try and hack in some very rugged/ragged stuff into the original Rune game--and they did a pretty bum job of it, too--which is why the "improved" *cough* versions of Rune never got to first base. I wish these guys luck at Bethesda--but it will take a few years of hard work to get where they need to be to competently improve what the GoD did with the ancient Unreal engine so long ago--Rune is a classic masterpiece, imo, a proper use of the Unreal Engine--one of those games you never forget. I still fire it up now and then for a few moments--yes, you never forget it until some guys like HHS come along and try to improve it--and practically ruin it, instead. Not really trying to be critical here, but...it has to be said...what they did to Rune stands out as the most amateurish work I may have ever seen--and then they tried to sell it! Sucker and softy that I am--I bought their game just to see what they were doing! Glad to help--I got on the forum and tried to express a few basic points for them--but it was like talking to a telephone pole. To close your door on the eve of the release indicates what a stinker Rune II must be. This is reminds me so much of the guys who took the decent code from the Two Worlds II game and made what amounts to a couple of homemade mods using the graphics and sound assets from TWII--I mean I've seen better amateur mods than that! Terrible with a capital T. Except for the fact that the TWII "expansion" guys couldn't claim a fraction of the bonafides HHS is claiming--yet the work looks eerily just as amateurish.

Didn't Zoe work on some game with Chuck Tingle? Did they finally release it?
Even better, Zoe stole the money, spent it all on a vacation, did zero work on the game, and Chuck now vehemently denies he was ever a part of the game and claims he never accepted anything.
She's a liar, a cheat, a manipulator, and a talent-less troll that blackmails others for money. That's her job.
Anyone defending her is clueless.
