It's a parody of Islamic extremism where making fun of Mohammed is met with executions.

The man in the red t-shirt is likely Alan Henning (it's the closest match I can find), and that decapitation occurred in 2014. Alan was a volunteer humanitarian aid worker, (I'd rather give a face to the victims than to remember the villains).

The `funny` is likely in reference to the multiple violent acts including:

and the most recent attack on a European magazine:

With the use of an external drive, it wouldn't surprise me if they add it (since the guide including upcoming shows already exists)

It already has DVR functionality (eg: 30 min buffer for pausing live broadcast).

I picked up the Lego movie game yesterday when it was on sale for $14.  I loved Lego City but haven't loved the superhero games as much so I hope it is more like the Lego City.



It isn't. Lego Marvel Superheroes is more like undercover than Lego Movie.

Digital Tuner coming to US and Canada

Nice!  That's something I'd actually get and use, assuming it works as well as it seems it could.  Just having the OneGuide thing for over-the-air TV would make it worthwhile.  Having things like the live pause is a nice bonus as well.

I've already searched out the cost for the non-MS branded adapter. I can wait till they bring down the price.

They're absolute fucking retards with their utter inability to make more of the 'rare' figures.

At the risk of being "that guy", listen to Dr. Cox about the use of "retards".

Wait ... we can't call people with retardation "retards" because it's discriminatory and so it's either "Enabled" "disabled" "challenged" "gifted" etc... and the word can't simply be used to mean crazy, stupid or dumb?  Wait, who's going to speak up for the dumb people? That's a condition too, you know. slywink

In all seriousness, I think breaking the word retard from people with mental disabilities is probably the easier way to disconnect that than it is to bring awareness to every single person (ever) on the insensitivity of using a word that *used* to represent a part of the population.

I'm betting that 99% of all uses of retard, retarded, fucktard, etc have zero connection to someone facing these challenges.

Dumb, stupid, etc are all labels that at one point were used to describe someone with a condition that generally had no control of that. 

It'd be nice if everyone would simply not focus on the negative. And Destructor? Dude is on a Nintendorampage.

They announced that a while ago (where your characters hair would grow).

Either they were seeding a joke, or this is poking fun at something real in the game.

I'll just mention it in here as well in case people are avoiding the existing thread on Forza Horizon 2: the standalone expansion/tie-in thingy for Horizon 2 and Fast & Furious 7 is available free to download for it's first month.  It'll be $10 after that.

There is content on the Canadian side that isn't on the American side, though generally it's the other way around (given that it's all about publishing rights and licensing regions).

Ugh. Watched this on Netflix. Age of Duh-stink-tion (sorry).

Autobots can change their body types at will, New-age Transformium can now flow like water.  Yeah, MarkyMark does bring some acting chops, and is believable. Once again, this movie is about the humans more than the robots, but there are some horrid cutaways and jarring scene changes that simply don't make sense (like when they're running from the farm - all of a sudden they're deep into an urban center with farm vehicles.

Before these movies were made, could you EVER see Grimlock letting Optimus Prime ride him?

Spoiler for Hiden:

As for the depth, the autobots themselves were toss-away, with perhaps Goodman's Hound being the exception for at least having some real presence (not by much). Would have been nice to see less overt stereotypes out there.

TL;DR?

There's less to hate, but not much to like.

It *is* from FROM Software. They aren't known for their attention to detail. slywink

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, for instance. :/ - or Chromehounds (which was basically Titanfall minus the "getting out" and CoD elements - however it did include the no SP campaign platform - that was just tutorial)

Glad to see they're garnering some good press with this game.

Although, I'm guessing just having an Oscar doesn't automatically mean you're in demand in Hollywood.

XB1 also has the Abe's Oddessy remake, and the Fast and Furious standalone/expansion for Forza Horizon 2.

In for both (eventually), but Abe will have to wait a bit. Apparently they added a bunch of new dialog etc, so it's not just a vanilla remake.

If you even remotely find any of the shows you listed funny, you will experience comedy bliss while watching Community.  If you're also a bit of a nerd, you will probably pass out from laughing at some point.

p.s. be prepared to rewind a lot.  There's a LOT of stuff that whizzes by fast, or won't be immediately apparent.  And even more stuff that pays off later...sometimes even years later.

Don't even bother clicking those links until you get most of the way through Season 3 - there are too many references that spoil the fun.

Narrator (Keith David - vo Arbiter in Halo 2,3, Cpt. David Anderson in Mass Effect 1,2,3): The North Cafeteria, named after Admiral William North, is located in the western portion of East Hall, gateway to the western half of North Hall, which is named not after William North, but for its position above the south wall. It is the most contested and confusing battlefield on Greendale's campus, next to the English Memorial Spanish Center, named after English Memorial, a Portuguese sailor that discovered Greendale while looking for a fountain that cured syphilis.


I bust a gut at this scene. This was done like a military documentary (Season 3 - Pillows and Blankets).
