  1. Oh it's way worse I'm sure. Trevorrow called the atmosphere at LucasFilm "acidic". I heard (but have no links) that all the Anthology films are put on ice and that Kiri Hart (VP and head of the Star Wars Story Group) is replacing Kennedy. Rian Johnson's triloy, the GoT writers' trilogy, and the Jon Favreau live action TV show are still a go, though.
  2. So after two months of taking my kids through the MCU (and the Spiderman/Amazing Spiderman movie series) I've got to say I'm a Marvel fan now. I used to always prefer DC. I still prefer Batman above all other superheroes, and Superman is better than Captain America, but man is the Marvel lore fascinating. I've been blissfully unaware. I did watch the Silver Surfer cartoon from 1998 which only had 1 season and incredibly bad voice acting, but really gripping stories. I never knew how cohesive the Marvel universe was. I had seen the first few Marvel movies but I just wasn't interested in really keeping up with it. The first one I really liked was Guardians of the Galaxy so that was probably the first big hook. Going back through from the beginning gave me a new appreciation and after watching Infinity War in theaters last week with the family for my son's birthday, I really want to dig into it even more. I'm chomping at the bit for more MCU movies (especially after being immensely disappointed with Star Wars of late). My wife is also really into Agents of Shield. Don't really want to get caught up in the shows, but I don't think it's necessary anyway. I just keep hearing that Marvel TV shows pale in comparison to DC TV shows and I think DC TV shows aren't that fantastic (besides Smallville I guess). But yeah, Batman still rules all.
  3. Last Movie you watched...

    Took the family to see The Avengers Infinity War for my son's birthday last week. The ending was blown for me, but dang was it an enjoyable movie. Not perfect, but it was always gripping at every turn. Great humour, fantastic action (best in all the MCU IMO), each character was handled authentically to their movies. My only complaint was that But bravo anyway. What an event. This was the cultural event that Star Wars should have been. I wasn't even into the MCU as I was never a Marvel kid (was more into Batman and Superman, though Spiderman too). I was actually looking forward more to the Amazing Spiderman movies before they stopped short. But we took the kids through each of the MCU films and I gradually got more into them. Now I'm hooked.
  4. I heard Donald Glover is firm on not wanting to return as Lando in any capacity.
  5. On the upside, the rumour mills are churning that Kathleen Kennedy is going to be stepping down from Star Wars and Lucasfilm in September. https://movieweb.com/kathleen-kennedy-leaving-lucasfilm-star-wars/

    This is why I will never fully trust digital distribution services. At least GOG has it right. They allow you to download your games even after they can't sell them anymore.
  8. Sam & Max does not belong to Telltale. They got a license from Steve Purcell (the creator of Sam & Max) to make those 3 seasons. They do not own Sam & Max, though. I wouldn't imagine DoubleFine making a Hit The Road remaster would be any more of an issue than Grim, DOTT, and Throttle were, but thus far DF has only done remasters of LA games that Tim was a project lead on. He didn't have a hand in Sam & Max. For that matter, The Dig is another one that could possibly do with a facelift. Or Loom. It's just a matter of if they want to or not. Would be neat. However, they'll have to put a bit more work into the art this time than they did with Full Throttle Remastered. That was really disappointing. The animations and sprites were fantastic, of course, but the backgrounds were basically upscaled renditions of the originals with slight cosmetic tweaks here and there. I don't want the same thing to happen to Hit The Road or any other LA games.
  9. The creators of the Game of Thrones tv series are getting their own Star Wars movies (separate from the Skywalker saga, much like Rian Johnson's new trilogy).
  10. On the whole, the teaser looks the same as every other Star Wars trailer for the past 4 years. It doesn't look like the posters vibe at all. It's hard to believe they're both for the same film.
  11. That guy is not Han Solo. Period. Lando, on the other hand, looks fantastic. It just hit me today that this movie is essentially a giant "Han shot last". Han Solo is supposed to be a ruthless scoundrel selfish smuggler who looks out for nobody but himself. He meets friends and becomes a hero. That's his OT arc. Making Han shoot last instead of first undermined that character arc which is why people made such a ruckus when that was changed in the SE. Now we're getting an entire film about Han that takes place before ANH which will undoubtedly and unavoidably portray Han in a heroic light. Something he's not supposed to do until ANH. However, despite this I can still enjoy it if it's made well. But I'm certainly not watching for the backstory or to see Han. Just for the extra lore and interesting locations/cinematography. Also, why could the film look more like the posters? The posters present this almost 60's sci-fi/70s western kind of vibe with the bright colours and stuff. Yet the trailer is yet another gritty stark contrasting light look that we've already had 3 times in a row. It'd be nice to have a change of atmosphere and vibe.
  12. I finished the new fifth episode Alien World Tour from the latest rendition of Duke Nukem 3D on Steam. Gearbox got the original level designer Richard "Levelord" Grey and original composer Lee Jackson back to work on it. Lee remastered the original soundtrack and also wrote new tracks for the new episode. JSJ also rerecorded all the original Duke lines and recorded new ones. I wish it were longer. It's a great series of new maps that really feels like it could have been released soon after the original release and the Atomic Edition. I really like the new enemy as well the Firefly. The new endgame boss was terrible, though. They also updated the renderer (in a way similar to EDuke32's Polymer renderer) with dynamic lights and normal mapped textures. Overall a far better experience than Duke Nukem Forever. Far more authentic to Duke's character as well. I think my favourite level is probably the Egyptian Pyramid level, though I wish that there was more to explore inside. Overall score 8/10. Also, interestingly World Tour has been pulled form Steam for some odd reason. Someone on Twitter cited something about DMCA and Gearbox said they're "working on it". No idea what's going on with it. Glad I bought it at Christmas. This digital distribution thing can be dicey many times.
  13. This is awesome.
