Much appreciated !

You're welcome!

Truthfully, I really wanted the movie to succeed and I still want a successful movie or TV series with all the gripping power of the books but...oh well. We're all human, we all make mistakes...

Glad to see I'm not the only person who didn't hate, but rather kind of enjoyed, John Carter. Dunno WHY it was considered "bad".

If you're truly interested in why the movie is considered "bad", I highly recommend this analysis. The author also links to other articles that gives a fuller sense of what happened and why.

I read all John Carter books.
Even being a fan of scifi or fantasy movies I found the movie a disaster in many ways.
Unconvincing hero, one of the worst adaptations I've seen IMHO.
Also the ridiculous ugly flaccid penis-like steeds the rode around, what were the designers thinking ?



Dude, I also read nearly all of the John Carter books, am a Sci-Fi/Fantasy movie/book fan, and ALSo found the movie to be TERRIBLE.

I really didn't like what they did (smooshing multiple books into one movie) and not doing a great job telling the story compared to the books.

Let's take the main character as the prime example: he was a US Civil War vet. Specifically, he was a Southern, Virginian, Captain in the Confederacy. So he should have had a southern-style drawl and honorable, gentlemanly ways of a very classical style/sense.

Instead we get....uhhhh...some dude that could have just walked off a local Californian beach with very little gentleman ways or charisma.

I can still remember the bile from watching the movie.

F*** you, MOUSE HOUSE, for ruining one of my childhood heroes on the big screen!

Gotta say, I love GoG.com and the philosophy behind it all. I'm thinking I want to put more of my money into that company and platform than any other one out there.

I wish them well. But I think, in the end, Epic Snapshot Games would have made more money (and certainly sustained goodwill) had they sold on Steam and eventually EGS once Epic moved away from their childish exclusivity.

I agree. Not really that interested in this game yet.

This one makes me sad. I loved playing the original Rune but the direction the developers took the with the design and gameplay (also making it an exclusive) just killed any desire I have for the second game.

RIP.

Saying rape without proof can destroy people's lives and careers.

On the other hand, keeping your mouth shut about someone raping you just because you can't prove it in court allows them to keep raping people. Even if you can't convict someone and get them locked up, sometimes letting people know not to be in a room alone with them is enough.

It's a Pandora's Box. In the court of public opinion, the association of rape will destroy a person's reputation and career, regardless of the truth. Don't think for one minute that someone wouldn't be willing to wield it like a weapon if they know the outcome probability is in their favor. That said, if he genuinely did rape her, then he's trash and deserves to have his career destroyed.

I'm with Kxmode on this one. I've heard/read many stories of rape that were true and needed the person responsible to be locked up and then I've heard/read many stories of rape that were untrue but the person accused had his/her life ruined anyway.

The way the law reads in the USA, the accused is assumed innocent until proven guilty because individuals writing the law would rather allow a guilty person to go free than to have an innocent person locked up (for those who studied law, it is a real ethical/moral question posed and must demand an answer...and you cannot have it both ways because of the paradoxical situation of not 100% knowing the truth of all things). Fictional examples of these situations can be found in many movies such as 12 Angry Men, Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, etc.

It is not good to condemn, have any prejudice or bias regarding individuals accused of rape...at least until all the facts have been ascertained, analyzed, and then judgement has been offered.

As for popcorn, I'm going to have to go with Kettle Corn. I love me some sweet and salty mixes.

Butters: I don't play World of Warcraft.
Cartman: Butters, you said you were on your computer all the time.
Butters: Yeah, but I'm playing Hello Kitty: Island Adventure.
[long pause]
Cartman: [sighs] Butters, go buy World of Warcraft, install it on your computer and join the online sensation before we all murder you.
Butters: Oh...all right, then.

Yeah, I'm out with this game too and NOT because of the technical challenges.

As was mentioned in the comments, this game is like UbiSoft decided to shoot GR in the face and replace it with "The Division in the Jungle."

To further compound the issue, they created a "social hub" wherein you can interact with all kinds of other players...and completely destroys the whole plot and point.

The game is PURELY disappointing and I'm not buying it.

Probably will not be as great as NFSU2. ALL NFS games suck compared to the crazy awesomeness that is NSFU2.

YAY!!!! I LOVE Saints Row! Well, I really loved the second, the third was meh, and the fourth was ugh.

Basically as the game series continues, the game's quality and greatness descends. It's sad BUT saying that I still like the game and look forward to it.

Only can we NOT focus so much on Gat? The dude wasn't that great in the second/third but for some reason they made him god in fourth.

Oh and can we please bring back Stoner Shandi from the second game rather than the Bitch Shandi in third/fourth? She was way hotter, funnier, and fun in the second.

I'm with you on your statement. It's quite simple: don't buy the product. I don't agree with the direction Epic is taking this so I don't spend my money. Money talks louder than words. If people are really upset, easy solution to be heard.

I've never understood why this is an issue. The game launched on a platform I don't want to buy it on. So I don't buy it until it launches on a platform I use. Problem solved.

Inspired by classics of the genre such as XCOM, Laser Squad, and Incubation

And then we took what made those classics good and removed it!

hahahaha I thought the same thing. I watched the video and read the synopsis and was like "uhhh...can I pay extra to have all that stuff y'all removed put back into the game?"

This game is a hard pass for me.

Beamer,

I think you do have a good point but the problem is the powerful greed driving decisions by individual companies.

For example, windfall and increased resources have not changed the buggy mess the SaaS games produced for the last 2+ years from EA. Individual users are now the test monkeys for games, which is why so many of them are either buggy messes on release or games stay in "alpha/greenlight" mode for years.

I think the best example of how to do it right is CD Projekt Red (Witcher series, Cyberpunk 2077) and Rockstar (GTA series, Red Dead Redemption, etc.). I really don't like how Rockstar games are SaaS and how they have a secondary login for cloud saves/purchases but DLC is free and there's no question about quality. And CD Projekt Red is doing amazing work with not only their games but also their supported store front GoG.

Another company doing it right is HumbleBundle, who let's you choose how much percentage goes to the publisher, storefront and developers.

Upshot is we, the gamers, get what we pay for and if we pay a company that encourages pure exclusives while blowing smoke up our asses claiming "it's all for the gamers!", then we only have ourselves to blame for the current state of the industry.

And 30% is very much industry standard among all players (Microsoft Xbox, Android apps, iOS apps, PlayStation, Steam, etc.). It was actually Microsoft that originally set that percentage more than a decade ago and every company followed suit. While it would be nice to dream of a lower percentage charged and with more cash going to developers, it is most likely going to take more than Epic/Sweeney's tiff with Steam/Gabe to change the industry standard.

To be clear, I'm with you, I want change, I want developers to have more cash in their pockets to create games but I also want games to drop back down to $45 for a triple A game, for games to not be exclusive on storefronts, and for DLC to be proper paid expansions. I'd also like for companies to allow modding on their games.

All of this is out the window though as long as big gaming corp is driven by greed and as long as gamers are okay with SaaS software/games.

We are in a worse and worse state of affairs as time goes on because we allow it.
