  1. I haven't seen the movie (I do want to at this point, just not sure when/how) but yes, the original first novel starts with a metric fuckton of info dumping as Herbert sets up the universe he's writing and gets the background so that the betrayals and such that happen later make sense. That's always been the problem with the translation to screen: what's the bare minimum you need to know to make the story move along, and what's the best way to present it for people who have never read the book.
  2. We're still years out from FF XVI, y'all may get a preview of the high def FF XIV for the Endwalker expansion.
  3. No offense, but the movie professionals disagree with you, strongly.
  4. That's what immediately popped into my mind:
  5. Yeah, Tom Holland is just too young looking for me. And Wahlburg can leave anytime he wants.
  6. Well, Nolan was re-hashing a bunch of stuff from the comics, so.... *shrug*
  7. Today in "How is the internet fucking up all around us"
  8. They've announced the last Smash fighter. Under spoilers.
  9. I realize this isn't technically video game related, or only vaguely tangentially, but something weird is going on with Facebook today.
  10. I was just so happy to see women SOLDIERS. It's apparently some kind of mobile MOBA game, so not something I'll get into.
  11. 40 hours in and haven't made it to Archades yet. I really don't like how the new version of the game took so many needful spells and technicks out of the stores and into random treasure chests. Then there's the fact that you have to lock in a party pretty early on since only one person can cast protective spells. It's also embarrassing to me how much I've forgotten, when I used to be able to run large parts of this in my sleep. I had thought I'd go all out, try to get all the espers, etc., but now I'm not sure.
  12. Squeenix ran a long Producer's letter simulcast overnight to go through the upcoming class changes for Endwalker. I'm linking the tweet with the full replay, as well as the ~20 minute job changes/new job introduction video. Some of the tank stuff boils down to "WILL YOU USE YOUR F'N COOLDOWNS OH MY GOD", Machinist keeps being as extra as it was in FF VI, and Summoner seems to be getting the big overhaul this time around (we'll see if it makes it any more interesting to play).
  13. I'm playing Final Fantasy XII on Steam for the first time, and it's been a few to several years since I played the game at all (I guess since Zodiac Age came out for PS4?), and wow I had forgotten how easy it was, even early on, to suddenly lose 2 1/2 hours of time. Grinding hunts and stuff early on really makes a difference.
  14. Funny thing is that way back in the beginning that's what it was. You could go in and get computer hardware stuff, anime videos, and some places even had manga. So in a lot of ways they're going back to it.
  15. I mean, the whole thing with the machines using humans as batteries fails when you think about it for a few seconds, so them just cloning the same few people over and over isn't THAT much of a stretch.
  16. According to Lucasfilm games on Facebook, it'll also be for PC I may have made some loud noises.
  17. (using a phoenix down on this thread) BRB sobbing into all my old L'arc-en-Ciel and Gackt mp3s from when I discovered JPop 20+ years ago.
  18. WELL. So how'd they get the announcer to say what my computer time is so perfectly?
  19. With everything else going on, don't forget to get your regular flu shots, my friends. Signed, the lady who just booked hers
  20. I have a question about iTunes if someone has a moment. I bought Hybrid's latest album "Black Halo", but no matter how many times I authorize my desktop to play the songs iTunes won't play the first three tracks, just endless loops of re-authorizing the machine.
  21. This is exactly the kind of cheesy disaster flick my Mom loves. Big names in the cast, too.
  22. I suspect it's contract related. If the contract said 3 movies and nothing else, then that's it. If the contract said 4 movies and other duties as assigned, well then....
  23. SR2 was the only one I ever played, and to me that's what I want from that kind of game. Batshit crazy (toxic waste in the tattoo ink!) and psychotic lethality side by side.
