That was weird looking, was Deadpool all CG?

I think everything was all CG.

No, but I do think Deadpool's face is CG-enhanced, which let's them pull off some interesting expressions for him.  Which fits the character well.

Today, I'm hoping that I'll have a job when I get back from vacation. Just heard that a bunch of long time employees just got laid off.  18,000 total, and at least half a dozen from my group.  I may be going back to close up the shop. :/

yup.  The group I work for was rolled into the big umbrella division with phones and XB earlier this year.  Good thing I'm in sysops.  Worst case, I go in and find an empty office and directions to repackage all equipment, then go somewhere for reassignment.  Still, it sucks for many I worked, some more than 20 years.

It sounds like it is rough over there right now. Hope it all settles well for you.

Not sure how you accidentally shoot down a plane flying at 30,000+ ft.

Anyway...just awful.

You accidentally shoot down a passenger plane.


Apparently, there is one family who lost someone both in this tragedy and the flight that went missing in March:

Got it for free on XB1.

Love it so far.

Even though I beat it on Vita, I got it for free on XBox One as well and have been playing it again.  Still a wonderful game.

I played through it on PS3.  After an early attempt where the game just didn't click for me, I tried again and played through to the finish.

I was tempted to buy the update anyway, so free on Xbone was a huge plus.  I've been replaying myself and am loving it again.  I'm only a couple of hours in and there's already a wealth of new content.  All around, another great experience.

I watched The Conspiracy the other night and was frustrated with the site outage 'cause I wanted to post about it.

It's set up as a documentary that starts out following a conspiracy nut who stands on street corners with a megaphone.  Eventually, it leads down a rabbit hole that is obviously not going to end well, but there's no way back, really.  All along the way, there's a fairly believable conspiracy web that gets laid out (nothing new, necessarily, but laid out well).  This part scratched my conspiracy itch pretty well.

The performances are good.  Especially Alan C. Peterson as the conspiracy nut (he hits all the right notes).  Aaron Poole is good, too, as one of two documentarians who gets hooked.  Bizarrely, he has a similar energy to the similarly named Aaron Paul (Pinkman of Breaking Bad).

The pacing is nice. The way it's filmed generally works (though there are some "hidden camera" shots that wouldn't actually have come out the way they did if they were real hidden cameras, but most people won't notice that).  The script is good, especially when getting to the root of the conspiracy stuff.  They give just enough information to make it clear (and make you wonder how much is real).  They also have a number of real-life experts as talking heads in the film.

My only real issue is that the ending isn't quite as shockingly twisty as they want it to be.  A little too much is telegraphed, I think.  But it still works just fine and doesn't spoil the movie as a whole at all.

Currently, The Conspiracy has a score of 88% on Rotten Tomatoes.  If you're in the mood for a documentary-style thriller or just want some conspiracy insight, this is a pretty good film to try.

Original Cast in Nostromo Edition Pre-Order DLC

No Ian Holm (though Ash will be in it). 

There will be two missions.  The first lets you play as Ripley, Dallas or Parker shortly after Brett dies.  The second is just Ripley as she scurries to hit the self-destruct and make it to the escape pod.  Er, spoilers.

I am very excited about this.  They're calling it a pre-order thing, but they use the phrase "upgraded to the Nostromo Edition" which makes me think this will be in every first run version of the game.  I don't know that I'm going to take that chance, though.

Look at this:

Prediction: This will be the Roger Rabbit of Disney Princess movies.

If you're just creating this thread for your magic prediction, perhaps you could elaborate on what you mean by this?

Meaning in the same way Roger Rabbit had animated characters from all over the cartoon world, Enchanted 2 will feature more than just one princess.  

Imagine the draw of seeing the classic animated Disney princesses step into the real world.

I know that you can go to Disney World and get the same sort of effect, or see certain shows on Broadway, but it just wouldn't be the same.

The only real difference as far Roger Rabbit goes is that there really aren't a lot of princesses outside of the Disney realm (Fiona? Anastasia, maybe? Mononoke?  Anyone else?).

I know, this seems like an odd place to bring up news of a sequel to the live-action Disney Princess movie, but the first was pretty popular in the day and a lot of fun, IMO), but more to the point, I have a totally blind guess about where this movie will go, and I wanted to get it out there to increase my "FIRST!" status.

Prediction: This will be the Roger Rabbit of Disney Princess movies.

New Update!

I was surprised to see that Titanfall needed an update before a quick session this morning.

It added a new game mode! Marked for Death.  It's just what it sounds like.  1 person on each team is Marked (location shown on the map) and whoever elimates the marked target first gets a point. I only played one session, but the VO AI at one point told me I had killed so many marked targets he'd lost count (I came in first for my team).  So, yeah, I like this mode.

There are other little tweaks, too.  Some little visual things, like in the result screen.  There's a great change for burn cards, where you no longer have to hit Y to go into a menu and pick one of your three slotted cards.  All 3 cards are on screen and you just pick the appropriate button (Y, RB and LB, IIRC).

Doesn't look like it added maps, but I wasn't there for long.  There was some mention of new burn cards, though.

Anyway, this breath some life into my push or 50!

I hate devoting more space to this in this thread, but the "rest my case" comment was the one where I started to understand that Arclight has a problem.  I'm not saying it's a serious mental issue or anything, but he's so far gone in his self-imposed persecution that he can't see the forest for the trees.  Everything feeds it, no matter the intent.  That means it's time for a break.
