I actually JUST watched Basterds today. I'm just so incredibly impressed. Watching it, I was like, "I will never write anything as good as this," and it's humbling and thrilling at the same time.

Not only that, but some of the quick cuts away from the action just magnify things that much better, such as the bar scene where it cuts away from them to show Stiglitz getting whipped, then cuts back to the bar, where Stiglitz has to bury that and keep talking to the SS officer.

The sign of a good character or characterization is if you could see a story written about nothing but that character. If you can, that's a sign you've got something great. There are so many great characters in that film, Hicox, the Bear Jew, Raine, Shoshanna, Landa, on down the line. Everyone is mesmerizing.

Wait... I'm forgetting that Clinton had an affinity for McDonalds, and they raked him over the coals for it.

Well, the last president who was overweight was Taft. So yeah, it does matter that Christie is pudgy. That doesn't mean he's unelectable by any means, it's just that being a fatty fatty boombalatty is going to make it more difficult.

Why should it matter thought?   What specifically about a person being overweight makes them somehow unfit to be president for some people?


You'll have to ask the people who haven't nominated or elected a chubby president since Taft. You're right, it shouldn't matter, but to the electorate it does for some weird reason.

I think we figured out the scandal! Alefroth sleeps with Obama! Caught on tape! FILM AT 11!

I would think the scandal would be due to Biden continually washing his '83 Trans Am on the White House lawn shirtless.

One time, Hepcat gave Eco-Logic a handie behind the 7-11 down on 8th and Park, so we know that Hepcat is generous with his time and wrist strength and that Eco views sexuality as a continuum and that he is merely a voyager on a vast ocean of delights.

Nice! This was rumored a while ago that some Squeenix property with "VII" in the title was making its way to the 3DS, and it certainly wasn't going to be Final Fantasy.

It affects both vanilla and the Gods expansion.

I can't say specifically what won me over. I didn't play it a whole ton after the last major patches. I played it a lot at first and just didn't like it, but here's what I like about it now:

Bonuses are actually substantial now for civics, as opposed to "you get 1 extra food if you meet these random conditions every once in a while."
Diplomacy actually makes a lot more sense now. You don't just get denounced for no good reason by every nation suddenly.
Opponents don't do stupid things as often now. One of the patch notes in this one says that they won't sit and heal while they're in range of an enemy city. I feel like the AI is at least putting up a fight now.

It just seems a little more balanced as well. Maybe my expectations are lower now, but it's just a better game at this point.
173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Civilization 5: !#@#!@ Impressions Incoming! God & Kings! on: November 02, 2012, 04:25:35 PM
I'll be honest: I was not a huge fan of Civ 5, right up until the patch yesterday. It seems much more balanced now.

Awww, but this is getting good! I'm going to throw Eco in a building with a knife and let him fight his way to the top where Hepcat is waiting, The Raid-style.

I don't have any horse in this race, I just check in here every day or so to watch Eco flail around. This is fun.

I felt the same way about 4. The emotional crux of the story hinged on two characters you didn't know existed almost until the end.

Number three, though?  crybaby

Seriously!

Twitter is having some fun with this. Here are a few choice examples:

People say Ann drives two Cadillacs & that's not fair. She has her own drivers.
Give me your tired, your poor. Your huddled masses.. I'd like to tell them to take some personal responsibility for their lives.
A president has to multitask. Mr Obama can only debate me. But I am debating Mr Obama & several former selves.
Of course I've known hardship. One time I had to clean my terrified dog's diarrhea off my windshield.
OK, fine. I've never had a Zinger. But I do know the owner of Hostess.

If the Vita dies, its because there are a couple hundred topics, across multiple forums, all lamenting the death of the Vita. This stops potential new customers from buying, and skittish publishers from getting on board. Self-fullfilling prophecy.



Didn't kill the 3DS.

Absolutely loving this game so far. I started as an Engineer, and he was too slow and dull for my tastes. I restarted with a Berzerker, and now I'm having a blast. Some games just have that special quality. Torchlight 2 has it.

Yeah, I'm playing as an engineer in Veteran mode, and I enjoy it a ton. You guys suck for forcing me to buy this. You all literally grabbed my hand, held it over the mouse, and forced me to click the button to buy it. Bunch of jerks, wanting me to enjoy myself.
197  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Sony struggling to get 3rd parties for PS Vita - encouraging fewer console ports on: September 26, 2012, 04:16:26 PM
What I'm saying is that there isn't anything in that list that's bringing everyone rushing to the stores. That's what I mean by "world-beaters." They're decent games, probably, but not EXCITING ones.

All I'm saying is that if a Rayman game is on the list of "best games for the system," you're in trouble with the public at large.

Although Reynolds WOULD be a good Deadpool, I think. He likes the character, and he could pull off "wacky badass" reasonably well, I think.

No, this is a direct sequel to Origins: Wolverine and drops him off in Japan.
