  1. They need to do a sequel. Does this release imply that they see the value of the franchise and will be making a sequel?
  2. Streaming is a good thing for low-latency games. Turn-based strategy games or RPGs. There is merit to this whole thing. Just can't imagine playing DMC.
  3. I love Google, but I have zero faith that they will ever go ALL IN on anything. Everything they do feels like an experiment. I doubt this will be anything different. They'll be cancelling whatever this is in 3 years.
  4. As an aside, I found out semi-recently that my favorite thing in the world, milk, which I consume by drinking lots of every morning or at least consuming via cereal every morning of my life, was responsible for Acid Reflux that I've had since I was 10 years old. Or so. I would go from place to place with TUMS in my pockets at all times. Ready to take them several times a day. As an adult I started taking a drug to control it and that worked. Changed my life. Then in the last 6 months (I am 42), I stopped eating cereal and drinking milk in the mornings and stopped taking my medicine. BAM. No more acid reflux. Consider though that I love dairy so much that I still eat pizza, have feta cheese on my salad, etc. But just removing it as a DRINK and only eating cereal every once in a while has changed my life. This has cost me quite a bit of money since Acid Reflex is correlated with cancer and as a result my life insurance is higher than it would be otherwise. Because of my DIET! Anyway, thought I'd share in case anyone else has a similar story about how their ever changing diet surfaced explanations for life-long medical issues.
  5. I always enjoyed the first half of Captain America. The Origin story part. Once he started touring Europe and kicking ass it wasn't as interesting to me. Similarly I really disliked the last 20% of Iron Man, Thor, and Iron Man 3. I mention those movies because just because I don't like part of a movie doesn't mean I dislike the whole movie. I tend to think that most movies fall apart in the last 20%. The ones that don't are my favorites of course. X-Men 3: The Last Stand for example.
  6. That would be awesome. It was a black eye on an otherwise wonderful run Disney has had with the public relations for these movies. I guess except for all this Captain Marvel nonsense. I don't know about you, but I would love if, in the first scene of End Game, Captain Marvel growls at Thor for leaving the toilet seat up, screams girl power, and blows Thor into space. That will earn End Game a 0% on Rotten tomatoes, but so what.
  7. What comes to mind from Infinity War was: -Avengers Music when Stark tells Peter he is an Avenger -Obviously the opening title screen after Strange says "Who?" -The drumming music when Stark calls for the new Spiderman suite I never really think about music very much. But only now as you bring it up again I realize how impactful it can be when Captain enters scene, to play his music, etc. That seems like a good idea. Though maybe too on the nose depending on how they do it. I'm not sure I want to hear "Spiderman, spiderman, does whatever a spider can" every time Spiderman is on camera.
  8. I know that at this point the Avengers have interacted with various super powered beings and aliens. But I really hope that during this movie, someone questions why there is a fucking walking-talking Raccoon at Avengers headquarters.
  9. I assume you're thinking he has a relationship with his mother like how Teddy has a relationship with his Dad:
  10. That bitch thinks the solution to everything is to switch it to work "collectively." That girl's a hammer, and everything looks like a nail to her. She is shown as "missing" in the trailer. It is certainly possible that she survived and then for dramatic purposes quickly hid in a closet so that nobody would know. When the time machine isn't working, and all hope is lost, if Shuri pops out of the closet and says "Why don't you just reconfigure the Quantum particles to work collectively" I'm gonna lose it.
  11. Not a lot of smart people on that poster. And I'm excluding Stark who is marooned and assumed dead until otherwise proven. Banner is the only smart person playing for the good team. That's not good. I thought Vision was going to be reconstituted in this movie, but I no longer think that. Can't wait to see the movie and find out who lived and died and who is going to play a role that is not in this poster.
  12. I started to watch "The Commuter" - I love this type of movie. But it just sucked. I quit watching. I don't have specific criticisms. I guess it just wasn't funny enough or cool enough or interesting enough to have me look passed the stupid plotline. I'll accept any plotline if I love the characters enough. This movie didn't qualify.
  13. I thought I read she had a 7 picture deal. Now 5, having finished two of them. If true, that extends to Capt Marvel 2, Avengers 5, a non-avengers ensemble film like Civil War(Maybe Civil War 2 plotline?), Capt Marvel 3, Avengers 6.
  14. OMG. We really gotta break up all of these companies. Pretty soon all videogame companies will be Taco Bell.
  15. And when she was on the ship, and an alien growls at her, and she mockingly growls back. Who thought to have her do that?! I thought it was hysterical.
  16. There are three levels of people pissing me off: 1) I resent when movie critics, who aren't big fans, criticize infinity war for being deficient in ways that simply aren't true. Anyone who has watched all the movies and knows all of the world building, character arcs, and story elements that have been stacked on top of each other to get to this point would not say what they're saying! 2) In the same way, all of the people who aren't big fans of superhero movies, and who declared Black Panther to be the best Super Hero movie ever, I resent them too. Joey never taught you to critique comicbook movies. THAT'S WHY YOU'RE SO BAD AT IT 3) And then the ACTUAL comic book fans who are corrupted by their cultural bullshit. They walk around like normal people. They don't even know that they're dead. I wish I could snap my fingers, and make them , disappear... I'd call that, mercy.
  17. I thought the movie was pulling a "Hot Tub Time Machine" by keep trolling that they were going to reveal how he lost his eye, and then not. I actually didn't think that the cat thing was real. I thought it was another false positive until Coulson pulled out the eye choices.
  18. I've been getting a lot of Captain Marvel "reviews" in my YouTube feed. Now everyone has an opinion. People here have voiced that they're not interested in this movie or for those who have seen it, thought it was mediocre. Fine. I recognize that I like this movie more than some people. Just as I like the Hulk movie more than everyone on the planet. However, these reviews I've sampled are insane. I admit that I am personally irked by the politics in pop culture. Speaking positively or negatively about a movie can be perceived as a shot in American culture wars. A movie getting nominated or winning an Oscar versus not getting nominated and not winning an Oscar is a shot fired in the culture war. But jesus. With this movie, and the reviews in my feed, the hyperbole is so transparent. These reviews are saying things like "The worst movie I've seen in a long time" and "The worst Marvel movie by far thus far." It is so obvious that the reviewers are so offended by the girl-power message and activism of Brie Larson and their bias is comically apparent. How could you possibly think this is the worst movie in a long time? Do you actually watch movies? I thought the white men backlash was exaggerated. I usually think that everything is exaggerated because everything usually is. Not in this case. Holy shit. My YouTube feed is ridiculous with angry white men saying this is the worst movie ever. And then saying they should kill Carol Danvers off, Kevin Feige should be fired, this movie is going to bomb. OMG, and don't read the YouTube comments. They will darken your soul. Wow.
  19. Oh, since Thor can take the power of a sun, I have to think he can withstand a few Captain Marvel protons. And if his AX can blow through all 6 infinity stones to impale Thanos, it could easily do the same to Captain Marvel. So I'm not buying her being the most powerful Avenger. That's Thor. Fortunately, they're on the same team. Though I suppose since Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, and Captain America are all about to die, she wins that title by default I guess.
  20. Definitely liking this game. Ran into a crash bug on the first boss which was a pain in the ass. Just when you're making progress, boom, full crash. Thankfully got passed it. So far liking the variety of enemies and terrain. Look forward to unlocking everything and playing coop eventually. I'm torn about the exploration stuff. On the one hand it is a nice change up I guess. On the other hand, it can be frustrating reading stupid dialog and exploring to get stupid artwork when all I want to do is the tactics stuff. So far they haven't gone over the line. But they're on the margin. My tolerance is low for bullshit fluff like that.
