  1. Solo might be a bomb regarding projected ticket profits, but it still more than made up for its budget. It's not like the film was a financial disaster. I feel like people make its shortfall out to be a bigger problem than it really is. Sure, Disney/LFL want to make as much money as they can from a project, but not meeting projections is not the same thing as not making a profit. Maybe their projections were just wrong.
  2. Telltale has been in a downward spiral much further back than 2015.
  3. Yep. I'm old enough to remember getting the NES with Super Mario Bros. (but not Duck Hunt) for Christmas near its launch, and I remember watching Star Trek IV ("the one with the whales") in the theatre. Thanks! I did. Had ribs from a fantastic local barbecue place in town, and had fun playing Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.
  4. I'm not sure I like the idea of 3a. To me, that's kind of like saying if Lucas had actually bothered to make Star Wars: Episode VII, he would have made it differently, and therefore GL's Ep7a is a better concept than TFA is a film. Nevermind that GL wasn't the only person with input on the original Star Wars project itself, despite people erroneously crediting Star Wars as wholly his baby. Monkey Island is what it is. Ron had his shot at creating MI3 back in the day, and he missed it. Curse, despite its flaws, isn't an awful game or even a terrible sequel. So I don't really see the need for Ron's MI3a at this point. MI6, though, sure. Let Ron keep going with the story as it currently is and give him rights to use Morgan LeFlay.
  5. Happy Birthday, Zacal. I've been playing more board games and reading/listening to more books lately. Unfortunately people didn't post much in those threads even when the forum was active.
  6. I recently finished listening to the current 4.5 (four novels and a novella) of the Expeditionary Force series by Craig Alanson. I noticed somewhere that its genre was listed as "space opera", which supposedly also includes Star Wars. But here's the thing: The Star Wars films are space opera; the books are not. The last two Star Wars books I've tried to read, Darth Plagueis and Battlefront: Twilight Company, are sci-fi drivel with boring plots and uninteresting characters. It's starting to sour my interest in Star Wars books. I just hope The Last Jedi novelization is good because I've already preordered it. I stopped listening to Twilight Company at about Chapter 7 because I just didn't feel interested, and now I'm listening to Chaos Seeds Book 1: The Land: Founding, which is a "LitRPG", or a novel about a character who is literally trapped in an MMORPG game world complete with stats, EXP points, and respawn on death. People apparently compare it to Ready Player One in some fashion, and since I'm really liking this story so far it's made me question my haste in giving up on that book, but for now I'm still telling myself that it's okay to not like things.
  7. What is the deal with Redout for Switch? I've been waiting for it to get released but they keep pushing the date back and back and back. When I asked Nicalis on twitter when it will be released, they ignored me.
  8. I love The Legend of Zelda, but I don't want to see Hollywood ruin it as they have with so many video-game-inspired films already.
  9. I understand the proper abbreviation for Nintendo Switch to be NSW.
  10. Why do you keep calling him "Snooke" instead of "Snoke"?
  11. But it's not just some arbitrary date. It's the day you got married. To the person you love so much you looked them in the eyes, in front of your friends and family, and told them you would stay together no matter the cost through thick and thin for the rest of your entire life. It's significant to say the least. The only reason the date is arbitrary is because you yourself picked it. So I don't get why it's a joke on TV for men to forget, as though its comical for the day to mean nothing to them.
