Just watched this last night.  I'm surprised that the buzz on this kind of died down quickly.

My wife and I thought the movie was good, but not "Best Picture" worthy.  Part of the problem was that the writing was just too clever for everyone involved.  I couldn't imagine the real conversations actually being said the way it was portrayed.

Also, none of the characters were likeable at the end of the movie.  The Winklevoss twins, Saverin, Zuckerberg...I just wanted the movie to end with all of them in the conference room with their lawyers and have a bomb explode killing all of them.  It would have been more fitting of an ending.

Considering this movie has been in the theater for over a month I think it's done moderately well.  It's not the huge blockbuster that I would have hoped for, but when I saw it at the IMAX 3D theater a week and a half ago, the entire theater was full.  I was happily surprised by that.

Quote from: Fireball1244 on January 13, 2011, 01:23:13 AM

On the floor of the US House today, Congressman John Dingell ran through some selected quotes *just from the last year* from Republican candidates and major conservative media figures.

Quoting Sharron Angle: "People are looking towards the second amendment remedies and saying my goodness, what can we do to turn our country around."

Quoting Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN): "I want people in blank armed and dangerous on this issue [of the energy tax] because we need to fight back."

Quoting Glenn Beck: "I want to kill Charlie Rangel with a shovel."

Beck again: "Every night I get down on my knees and pray Dennis Kucinich will burst into flames."

Quoting Texas GOP candidate Stephen Broden: ''Our nation was founded on violence. The option is on the table. I don't think that we should ever remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms.' '

Quoting Sarah Palin: "Don't retreat, reload."

Quoting would-be Alan West chief of staff and radio host Joyce Kaufman: "If ballots don't work, bullets will."

Would anyone argue that these comments are reasonable? Can someone provide quotes from Democratic candidates saying that if they don't win the election, bullets might be the solution. Or a major liberal media figure praying for the death of a Republican officeholder?

Oooooh.  You had to use a web site (http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/01/john-dingell-runs-through-litany-of-violent-rhetoric-on-house-floor-video.php) and cut and paste instead of doing research yourself.  Here are some quotes from John Dingell, who made the quotes:

"My old daddy used to say 'kill the closest snake first'."
"The consequences of the behavior of the BATF in these kinds of cases (events such as Waco) is that they are not trusted. They are detested, and I have described them properly as jackbooted American fascists."
"The harsh fact of the matter is, when you're going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people."

Finally, there's no proof he listened to talk radio, on either side.  We do know he has some kind of altar in his back yard, he was anti-war, and atheist, and his reading materials included Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto.  Blaming this on political rhetoric is illogical.

Another moment of greatness in Philidelphia Eagles Fans Sportsmanship:

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/01/11/another-proud-moment-for-philadelphia-sports-fans/

Quote
Philadelphia sports fans always claim they get a bad rap.  Sure, they can be boorish.  But so are fans in New York and Boston!

Eagles fans got so upset Sunday about their unfair stereotype that they had to take it out on something, like the car of a Packers fan.

A Wisconsin native that now works in Pennsylvania as a college professor attended the Eagles-Packers game with his father.  His Toyota Camry was “stomped on, kicked and beaten.”  Mirrors were broken, wipers torn out, and dents made on the hood, trunk, and roof.

“When I left Green Bay everyone said to be careful — the Philadelphia fans have a reputation,” Peter Coenen (the father) told the Morning Call of Lehigh Valley.  “My son had a Green Bay Packers shirt on. As we drove in, they gave us the finger.”

Oh, we didn’t realize the guy had a Packers shirt on.  Dude was asking for it.

Michael Vick pulled a Brett Favre at the end.

True, but it doesn't help when you lose by 5 points after your kicker misses two field goals.
It doesn't help when a return team member is pushed into the ball and the refs call it for the kicking team.  It doesn't help when the QB fumbles the ball at the 24-yard line practically giving the other team a TD.  It doesn't help when the receiver drops the ball close to the end of the half on a sure touchdown pass....

There were a lot of factors, but the two missed FG's weren't the only factors.

I will say that the game was very sloppily officiated.  Some truly headscratching moments.

Get Ticket to Ride with the USA 1910 expansion.  It's a lighter game, but it is a lot of fun and I enjoy playing it at any time.  It has cards, a board, and little trains of different colors.  Easy to learn and play.  Even my wife likes to play this game.

If you want something with more players, you could do Shadows over Camelot which can support 8 with the expansion.  It's a cooperative game, so it is a rather unique approach to board gaming.  While it is a fantasy theme, it is King Arthur which should make it a bit easier to swallow.

For Sale is an easy card game to get into that can handle more than four.  It has a bit of a trick-taking system, but it does give everyone a chance to win.

Kingsburg could be called Catan with dice.  Everyone has dice and they use those dice to get goods.  If someone puts their dice on a spot that you wanted, then you have to go to someplace else.  It does have a system that does give someone in last place the possibility to get caught up.

Yahtzee Free for All can handle six, but your options are limited as far as your choices for the dice rolls.  Plays a lot faster and is a lot of fun from what I played this past weekend.

I hesitate with Dominion because I have tried to get people to play it, but there doesn't seem to be the interest with non-gamers, although some have.  I have heard that when you get more than four it really drags, and even when there are 3 or 4 it can get bogged down depending on the number of players.

On Ascension vs. Dominion (coming from someone who has played magic: the gathering competitively for ~ 10 years)

Ascension is a good game, don't get me wrong, but there's a definite power imbalance and luck factor to it. I've played about 30 games and found that it's very easy to teach, but there's not a lot of variety. Most games play out the same basic way and the strategy is very rigid. 95% of the time it makes more sense to buy a card in the center row than a mystic/militia, and there are certain cards (Arbiter of the Precipice: Draw 2 cards then banish any card from your hand) that if you get it at the start of the game and understand what that means and what to do with it, you've pretty much already won the damn game. I had one game where i had Arbiter and the guy that lets you copy any hero you've already played this turn, proceeded to whittle my deck down to a very lean 13 cards while my opponents all had like 40-50 cards, and I cycled through the entire deck every single turn, won by 30 or so points.

My other big beef with the game is that it doesn't feel as interactive as a game should be. When it's not your turn, there's only a few cards in the entire set that do anything to you, and you can't interrupt anything your opponent is doing.

Dominion OTOH seems to have a lot more variety -- even though I've only played 10-15 games of it. It does take a lot longer to set up. I only have the main game and Intrigue right now and finding the cards in my well sorted boxes where I've sleeved all the cards to keep them in pristine condition. I've got plans right after christmas to buy the three expansions I don't already have. There was one card that the owner of my LGS told me about that was extremely unbalanced - I believe it was Saboteur (one where you make all your opponents lose the next card in their deck costing 3 or more and then acquire something costing 3 or less) - we simply chose never to play with it; problem solved.

Both games are great choices, and ultimately I recommend getting both.

Thunderstone... in the one trial game I had at my LGS I didn't care for it so much. It was much more involved than Dominion with a lot of things that I didn't want to think about (equip axes to heroes, no they don't have enough light so they're fighting in the dark and will lose... what is going on???)  I'm sure it's better once you get a basic understanding of the game - but it's definitely harder to teach than Dominion/Ascension.

There is still a luck factor with Dominion, as far as which cards you draw for your hand.  Also, if you don't have any attack cards in your tableau, Dominion has very little interaction with other players.  I also don't like how there isn't any way to defend against attack cards if you don't have any kind of defense cards in the tableau.  I think that some of the issues that you have can be resolved easily with an expansion, something that Dominion has had four of.  Playing the original Dominion by itself has the same issues you have.  Also, just because a card shows up early in the tableau in one game doesn't mean that it will come up shortly thereafter.  I'm also surprised you were able to win Ascension with that few of cards in your deck unless you killed a lot of monsters.  I played with a friend and he had so many jewels he thought that he won, but once we included the cards in our deck, I had won by a few points.  Also, Ascension seems designed so that it does make sense to buy a card in the middle row if you have enough to do so, and the mystic/militia are there for the times when you can't.  If you couldn't do anything then your turn wouldn't be very much fun.  Dominion to me feels rather slow in comparison to Ascension.

Thunderstone does take more time, but it doesn't feel like the theme is pasted on like Dominion.  Every card has a useful purpose, instead of Dominon where you have the point cards that are just dead weight.  You might want to look at Heroes of Graxia, which seems like a nice mix between Thundrstone and Ascension.

Hey, Jeff Bridges was on Tonight Show yesterday. He's in the odd position of having two films (Tron on Dec. 17, and True Grit on Dec. 22) open within a week of each other. Bizarre, no?  confused

He talked a bit about the motion capture work to play the younger "evil" version of his character. An interesting thing he said was that the motion capture animators were trying to replicate his look in the 1984 film "Against All Odds" (w/ Rachel Ward and James Bridges, though it's maybe better known for Phil Collins' title track hit song), working off footage from it, rather than from the original Tron. Perhaps too much of the footage from the original film had funky lighting.
Maybe it was because he had a funky cap on for most of the movie.

We have a 2010 Ford Edge with Sync and I haven't had any issues with it as far as voice recognition, and neither has my wife who drives it more.  The Bluetooth works pretty good, but occasionally it is hard to hear her.  The only "odd" thing about the Sync is that if she is using her iPod and she stops the car and restarts the car, the iPod only plays the song that it was on when the car stopped until she tells the Sync to play something else.  Not a huge deal and may be fixed by now but we haven't upgraded Sync since we've had it.

I don't care for Ascension nearly as much as Dominion.  It doesn't feel nearly as fine-tuned.  It's not a bad game, certainly, but it feels a bit rushed.

If you've ever played with someone who has Analysis Paralysis, you appreciate Ascension a bit more.  I also like the setup and tear down time is much faster.  I do like Dominion, and I haven't played with all of the sets, but I like how you don't have to worry about how many buys you have or actions you have.  You can lay down your cards and play them out pretty quickly.  Sometimes Dominion can be bogged down.  I've never had a game of Dominion last a half hour.  Usually it's been 45 minutes minimum.
101  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Getting Back Into Board Games on: December 08, 2010, 06:49:53 AM
You might want to look at "They Came from Outer Space," which was made by the same people who did Last Night on Earth.

If you don't have any of the Ticket to Ride games, I would recommend at least one of them.  It's always a fun game even for people who don't play board games.  If you get the USA version, get the USA 1910 expansion.  Bigger cards and more tickets is worth it instantly.

Castle Ravenloft is great if you want that D&D fix without a DM and in about an hour.  Can be played solo or up to five.

Take a look at Ascension if you like deck-building games.  It's faster to set up than Dominion and I feel like it plays faster too.  For 2 - 4 players.  Warning, the artwork kind of sucks.

Thunderstone is cool if you want to keep a fantasy theme.  It has a much better theme and artwork than Dominion, and can also be played solo.

If you have friends that enjoy co-op games and enjoy a fantasy setting, then check out Defenders of the Realm.  While it has some similarities to Pandemic, it does feel like a totally different game.

If you like Risk but want to mix it up a bit, then check out Small World.  While the game isn't the best with just two players, it's not bad.  Better with 3 - 4.

Kingsburg is a fun worker placement game.  It does have a two-player variant, but it handles up to five.  I've heard good things about Stone Age, but have never played it.

I know some people like Race for the Galaxy.  I find it to be too random and while there is some strategy, I feel that there is a lot more luck involved.  You'll also need a couple of expansions to have any kind of player interaction.

I have been up to my eyeballs in board game reviews, especially after GenCon.  While I am almost caught up, I could use another person or two to get more reviews out quicker and get more of them done.  While reviews would be a part of this (and possibly not exclusive to board games), it would also include posting news on the front page and working on our database.

If anyone here is interested, please send me a review of a board game you own to [email protected] and I'll look it over.  With the holiday season coming we probably won't have anyone join the staff until after December, but I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Sad that RB3 sold poorly at launch. Hopefully positive word of mouth on how amazing pro guitar, Drums & keyboards is will give it a long term sales boost?

I was chatting about this with Ron earlier today.  Every review said how great RB3 is because of the Pro mode.  But what good is this if you aren't actually interested in learning how to play real guitar (and pay for the MIDI kit or whatever else you might need for Pro mode)?  Ron said that there were a large number of enhancements to the game including in the interface, but most reviews haven't pointed that out.  Without that, it seems like a glorified DLC pack.  Reviews have done a terrible job of explaining what makes RB3 better than the previous games other than Pro mode.  Also, going forward with the DLC only being RB3 compatible, some people might feel that they have enough as it is and can always pick up songs they don't have already from RB1 and 2 to keep the game fresh.

While I've seen a couple of commercials on TV, there hasn't been a lot of marketing behind this game from what I can see.  This is something that is crucial for something that is supposed to have mass market appeal.  I think that RB3 will have a long shelf life, but how long will it be before we see it discounted much like Beatles Rock Band was?

While I've voiced my opinions on this season's incongruity, I'd have to disagree about the "focus on Kurt" and "agenda" for the show.  There have been 6 episodes, of which only 2 really featured Kurt (Grilled Cheesus and Never Been Kissed), and even then they were still ensemble episodes with multiple plotlines and characters featured.

You forgot about Duets and how he did a duet with himself.  While the whole episode didn't focus around him, there was a large Kurt factor in there (including the Duet at the end with Rachel).  So, about half the episodes so far this season.

Now, I don't agree that he should get beat up every day, but Kurt is an annoying and selfish character.  (Case in point, the episode where he decorated the bedroom the way he wanted to instead of getting Finn's input to make him feel comfortable.)  He also brings on some of the criticism onto himself.  For instance, when he tries to go into the girls' group instead of with the guys when they split last night.  He complains about being different and then does everything he can to show that he is different.  He wants to have his cake and eat it too.

At least Artie has had a mostly positive attitude about his situation.  Sure, he has had his down days, but nothing like the drama surrounding Kurt.

Disney is spinning its upcoming "Tron: Legacy" feature into an animated TV series.
Boy-centric cabler Disney XD has given a series order to "Tron: Uprising," which is set for a summer 2012 bow.

Charlie Bean ("Samurai Jack") will exec produce and direct, while "Tron: Legacy" writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will serve as consulting producers. "Tron: Legacy" co-producer Justin Springer is also on board.

"Tron: Uprising's" voice cast includes Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry and Lance Henriksen. Bruce Boxleitner will reprise his role as Tron.

Disney XD had already picked up a 10-part "Tron" microseries, which airs next fall.

Disney TV Animation is behind the show. Disney Channels Worldwide entertainment prexy Gary Marsh called the new show "a culmination of an extraordinary collaboration between Disney Television Animation and our feature film studio."

"Tron: Uprising" will focus on Beck (voiced by Wood), who leads a revolution inside the Grid's computer world.

I highlighted the area that makes me feel very confident about the project.  If you've seen Samurai Jack, you know what an awesome series it was.  If you haven't, you need to catch up.

The article is longer than what I posted in the forum.

Check out Noble Knight Games.  They have a ton of out of print stuff on their online store.

Bah, and then they had 3D Dot Game Heroes on sale for $20 and they were all sold out by the time I checked!  frown

Same here, and I checked about 10 after.

Disappointed SotC is only 30fps on the PS3.  I mean c'mon, the PS3 isn't powerful enough by now?

It doesn't gain power as it goes.   icon_wink

Yeah I worded that wrong, haha.

I meant I would have figured that for such an old game like SotC, a PS3 can run that at 60fps.  Wasn't the God of War collection at full 60fps?

I have a feeling that the 30fps is a result of supporting 3D.
