Same.
This model will lead to constant griefing of players.

Shameless cash grab.

Re: Penny Dreadful

It was a great show in the first season, but I feel they really went off the rails in the second. I know they were under pressure, knew the cancellation was coming and were doing their best to tie up all the ends of what was obviously supposed to be a three season arc (at the least)… but it really f...

Re: Battletech

No, I knew it was a top down tabletop RTS. I was there at the birth of gaming like you were. Was just too damn expensive for me. Besides, I was solid AD&D... but... I'll get MW5 most likely... but only if it supports VR. Otherwise Vox Machinae gets my $$. Since getting my HMD it's funny, but regular...

Re: Battletech

Okay, so this is a top-down RTS style now instead of an FPS "in the mech" shooter?

Ugh. I'll wait for Vox Machinae.
Thanks for the report though. I was curious about this, being a long time MechWarrior player.

Re: Discovery: Star Trek Returns to Television???

Plausible deniability? Yeah, I'm just guessing. They were rather pointed about how they highlighted the black badges during the first episode of STD. The question is was it actually laid out with thought to the second season, or are they just guessworking an arc and are cobbling together bits? Why n...

Re: Axanar: A Star Trek Fan Production

I just really, really, really hope they make the new parts in the same documentary style to give us a cohesive whole. They just nailed it the first time- don't change it, just FINISH IT.

Re: Discovery: Star Trek Returns to Television???

Agreed. Here's the thing: Discovery is decent sci-fi. It got off to a slow start, and they're getting a little Deus Ex Machina lately, but it's fairly solid and not afraid to pull punches (for CBS/Paramount). It's just that it doesn't FEEL like a Trek property 90% of the time. I think, honestly, it ...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

I've seen it twice, and I'm still torn. There are parts I readily accept and others that are discordant. There are brilliant bits that get it just right and the rampant need to induce a 'comedic foil' that utterly ruins it. I think because I played virtually EVERY Star Wars game extant that I can ac...

Re: The Orville (Star Trek Homage)

Thank god.

But I will lay real money on the bet that Family Guy/American Dad/Simpsons merch makes Easter Egg appearances at *some* point.

This is FOX, after all.

Re: Star Trek Continues (indie fan show)

Watched the 2 part finale a week or two ago. They wrapped it up nicely.

I'll miss this- to my mind it captured the 'feel' of TOS the best of any fan prod yet.

Not surprised they released the .iso's. I would expect no less from people of this caliber.

It does have a good soundtrack, I'll give it that.

Re: Discovery: Star Trek Returns to Television???

The problem arises when one person (or a group of people in this case) imposes their own standards for how they interact with Star Trek on everyone else. But rather than accepting that, these gatekeepers decide that their opinions are fact. And then they try and impose their will and judgment on ot...

Re: Discovery: Star Trek Returns to Television???

Most of what we know of Spock's family life was given to us via ST:TAS and later novels... other than what TNG gave us later. Personally, I don't count Abram's stuff as canon.

The scene in question is from the mid season cliffhanger(ish) and, yeah... they showed what the smart viewers among us had already figured out. Torture wasn't the only thing going on between our new head of security and scar-faced Klingon interrogator woman. Frankly, I was far more worried about Sta...

Do you honestly believe that they give a Tribble's ass about canon?
