  1. I've seen this movie twice now, and it has erased every agonizing second of Superman Returns from my mind. I hate how overused the word "epic" has become, but it's definitely the right word to use here. Cavill was perfect, and the score has been stuck in my head for the last two weeks.
  2. It was quite difficult getting through that scene. There were so many arrows pointing to what would happen, and even though I haven't read the books, I was somewhat expecting/dreading it. Needless to say, it was one of the most brutal things I've ever seen on a TV show.
  3. The only sad thing about this is that a bunch of people lost their jobs. What was the last good game LucasArts developed? Republic Commando? The article makes it pretty clear that this isn't the end of Star Wars games. In fact, I don't see it as anything but a new beginning.
  4. I've got to agree with this. I can't comment on the quality of the show, as I've never watched a single episode and have had no interest in doing so, but I do like what this news implies about where Disney intends to take the Star Wars franchise.
  5. The mission story is a little ridiculous, and the rest is 100% fan-service. However, it's the best fan-service I've ever seen. It was entertaining and genuinely hilarious all throughout, and it was a much better send-off for these characters than the main game or the Extended Cut gave.
  6. Has the video game developer ever had nearly as much creative control over the adaptation process as Ubisoft (and BioWare for the supposed Mass Effect movie) will have with this one? I think it's a little early to completely dismiss them as "horrible movies" considering that we currently know next-to-nothing about the casts, directors, scripts, or even if they will be based on individual games or completely new stories. Before, I didn't really have an opinion one way or the other, but the news that Fassbender will be so highly involved has bumped this one up to "cautious optimism."
  7. To my great shock, something like this is exactly what I was hoping for (other than KotOR III of course ). I don't want to get too excited yet, since we don't really know anything about it except what it looks like, but at least it seems LA is taking a step in the right direction.
  8. At least you didn't drop it in the toilet. As I recently experienced, technology doesn't like that.
  9. I've been thinking about reading them myself, but I've heard the Daenerys-related chapters are dreadfully boring. I may give it a shot anyway, though I don't think I want to read ahead of the show.

  10. It's hard to believe it has really been that long. I loved this movie when it first came out. Not so much anymore... Among quite a few other things, Yoda doing flips and **** isn't my cup of tea.
  11. I realize this thread is rather old, but I don't see why the topic should stay dead forever just because no one has discussed it recently. I just wanted to say that I've gone through something similar to your experience over the last few years, especially the part I quoted. 5 years ago, I was about as "Christian" as they come, or at least I thought I was. Since then, I've spent countless hours going back over things that preachers, youth leaders, parents, and friends have told me about god and the consequences of "leaving" him, analyzing it to death from every direction. Because of these "consequences" I had nailed into my brain over the years, I was honestly too scared to fully admit to myself that I didn't believe any of it anymore until about 2 or 3 months ago. At this point, I guess I would describe myself as atheist, and I'm now fully comfortable with that, though none of my friends or family know yet. I haven't decided when or how I'm going to tell them (oddly enough, I think it will be my friends who are more upset than my family), but I should hope they would be mature enough to show the level of civility to calmly discuss the matter that the people in this thread have shown.
  12. I won't be dwelling on what this could be, so as to not get my hopes up once again. The less I hope for, the less I'll be disappointed in the end. This isn't to say I think LucasArts is "beyond saving," but I'm certainly not expecting anything noteworthy.
  13. Thanks! He is rather smooth. Are you a show-only fan, or do you know how it's all gonna go down?

  14. I'll be turning 21 in the summer, and I still love games as much as I ever have, if not more so. As Sabretooth said, you may change your tune once the next generation of consoles is at hand. One thing I can say is that I don't enjoy the multiplayer side of games nearly as much as I used to, though I think that may have more to do with the people who play the games rather than the games themselves.
  15. Who knows? You may be the first in a long line of young hotshots, come to breathe new life intro this dark, dank pit. 5 years down the road, you could be the king of this place... or you could end up like me - nearly 6 years in, occasionally posting in a thread here and there, never doing or saying anything memorable and likely giving off a "creepy, lingering stranger" vibe... >_> <_< Welcome anyway!
  16. To clarify, I don't hate LucasArts and they haven't ruined my life. They haven't made anything I've been interested in in years though, and when the biggest things they have coming out are an MMO and a Kinect game, it doesn't look like that'll be changing for a while.
  17. Why you enjoy art and the one problem with Mass Effect 3 This guy is incredibly long-winded (and there are ending spoilers within, of course), but he sums up my displeasure with the ending rather nicely. With that said, I don't regret going to the midnight release. I love everything else about this game, and I can see myself playing the hell out of it for a while.
  18. "Mass Erect? A new video game that brainwashes children as young as 4 into believing that they can save the world if they engage in homoerotic behavior."
  19. Will there be a "Rejected Reject Edition" that has Assassin's Creed: Revelations in it? It and Dead Space 2 would be my choices.
  20. Happy Whatever-The-Hell-You-Want-To-Celebrate Day!
  21. Jedi Academy Knights of the Old Republic & TSL Mass Effect 1 & 2 I'm actually currently replaying ME2.
  22. Since basterds has been spelled the "alternate" way (and inglourious would make no sense) - Glourious Freedom Fighters.
  23. I was under the impression that he claimed each episode would cost around $50 million. Besides, no matter when the story takes place, I have absolutely no faith in this show as long as Lucas is in charge of script-writing.
