Here’s a rundown of the reveal, listed in order of their collectible card number. (Asked if there was significance to the numbering, Abrams replied: “YES.”) Time to get on that, Bothan spies.

• #11 — BB-8 on the move

• #53 — Poe Dameron in his X-Wing

• #67 — Kylo Ren ignites his Lightsaber

• #74 — Rey on her Speeder

• #76 — Finn on the run

• #81 — Stormtroopers prepare for battle

• #88 — X-Wings in formation

• #96 — The Millennium Falcon

Apparently Kap smiled and talked for 10 minutes at his press conference today.  Even spoke highly of Richard Sherman.  Weird.

Niners gonna lose by 4 TD Sunday.

Heck no!  At the end I think I even went down to easy mode.  I wouldn't last a second above normal, let alone Hard. What level are you playing at?

Normal or medium or whatever they call it.

I did most of the game like that, but towards the end I went down to Easy so that I could just finish.

I understand that, but I would expect more professionalism from coach and the QB. It's ridiculous for Kaep to give one or two word answers to legit questions. Look, I watch the replay of many of the press conferences and obviously there are certain reporters who are just incredible dicks. Guys like Lowell Cohn and his amateur level son Grant, Tim Kawakami, Ann Killion to name a few. But there are other reporters who are respectful and ask questions I would not consider outrageous. As a fan, I want to hear what their thought process is. Look at the difference compared to Frank Gore and Vernon Davis. Things are bad and they face the questions and answer them honestly. The press doesn't seem to have any problems with them.

Kaep, when he's on, is an otherworldly talent, but as a fan it is so frustrating to see his behavior. He is so obsessed with this world is out to get me attitude that it's distracting. He should spend less time worrying about what people are saying to and about him and spend more time on figuring out how he can improve his game.

Whatever though. The whole season is a train wreck and could have been avoided by all parties involved. Everyone should share the blame.

Agreed.  These guys are making the team hard to root for.  Compared to the SF Giants it's night and day.

So throw away $$$, success, and overall good coaching (this  year excluded) because people can't be professional.  As ATB said, short sighted.  They won't understand how big of a mistake it will be until he's gone.

I tend to agree but they said the same thing about Mark Jackson and look at the Dubs under Kerr.

Firing Harbaugh for one bad season is short sighted.  Hopefully they stick with him...

They're firing him because no one gets along with him.

This game is going to take so long - I'm only on chapter 7.

And the Alien is a total troll.

It's much too long even without the waiting and sneaking. Still enjoyed it.

I had purchased the destiny expansion back in Oct to reach my $100 threshold on PSN to get a $15 credit, so I guess there's that.  I'll check out the single player stuff.

So far so good, I'm really liking it. It's basically just Far Cry 3 - Cry Harder, but I loved FC3 so it's all good.

First thing I did was set myself up for an alternate ending (major spoiler below):

Spoiler for Hiden:
At the beginning of the game, Pagan Min tells you to wait and he'll be right back. If you do wait (approximately 12-15 mins), he comes back, you get on a chopper together. He flies you to a shrine where you place your mother's urn and credits roll. If you just do what you're told, you don't have to deal with all the bullshit of actually playing 30 hours. I laughed out loud.



Is this for real?

LOLZ. The only question now is whether York fires Harbaugh this week to prevent Carroll from finishing him off, or leaves him in to suffer the humility. 50/50?

I was thinking that too

Here's the bit I was remembering. I guess they didn't go into as much detail as I recalled:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=uXvvc5MEqfE#t=90

At the end of the game Sully gives Nate his wedding ring back and he wears it for Elena, implying they are back together. There were probably other references to the ring in the game (Nate thinks he's lost it, I think) but I don't recall exactly where they were.

I thought it was pretty clear from U3 that they were married and something unsaid had happened.  He ends the game wearing a ring on his ring finger and hugging it out with Elena.

Man, that video reminds of how much they screwed up Elena's looks in the third game. She barely looks human, and not even close to what she looked like in the previous games. I hope they don't make this mistake in the new one.

Totally. Was there ever any explanation for why they screwed her look up so bad?

Yeah, they've been talking about this for a while now. We're going to see something from the game, though we don't know what. For all we know, there could be something playable, but I doubt it.

I'd be happy with one of their awesome trailers.  Gameplay would be icing on the cake!

Unfortunately the stuff that YK mentioned is still prevalent.  I believe it's an unfortunate byproduct of the way the entire system works.  Programmer costs are constantly rising every year, and they continue to try to gouge more at every opportunity, so as providers, the economic model inherently is built to have costs increase over time.  It's not really that you are paying "more for the same content" over time ...

You can say "that's just how this system works", but to me, the first company that flips this model on it's head is going to be rewarded for it.  If you want to pull out of a steep decline, don't keep doing the same thing.

They can't because all the power is with the comcasts and time warners and they don't want to split up these massive subscription packages.

Monthly cost is the big one.  Quality of service is definitely there too.  I've been an ATT Uverse subscriber for about 7 years or so now.  I feel like there are so many channels I don't even look at.  I watch sports first and foremost and then some shows.  My wife watches more shows.  We have a couple movie channels, but only because I had recently called in and said I would cancel if I couldn't get a new sub deal so that I could get new sub prices.  They gave me $60 off my bill if I signed up for a 1 year deal, which I would have had the service anyway for that time.  I get HBO during programs I want to watch.  Most of the time you can just get it for free anyway.

I haven't really seen the preview at each commercial thing on American TV so I'm not sure what you mean by that.

It's the kind of thing where they'll say "coming up next" or similar phrases, then show a couple of things to try to hook you into watching until the next commercial. My impression is that it's very common. GameTrailers used to do this kind of thing too with their Bonus Round videos, but they must have gotten complaints, because they've stopped.

I've never heard of a preview at any point except at the end to tease what's coming next week.

Oh, one additional thing. IMHO between this and Evil Within I have found Evil Within to be much scarier. Alien is tense, but Evil Within is filled with creepy monsters and blood and all sorts of insanity, and that gets to me wound up a lot more than just fear of the unknown.

Early game spoilers:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Well, I just finished the chapter where you have to get up the elevator after evading the looters. I think I had to start over a good 10 times just getting out of the main area. Enemies that can see you across the room in the dark and have pinpoint aim? No indication at all of where you're supposed to go? I don't mind limited hand holding, but that was kind of severe for what is really the first encounter in the game. I just picked up the motion tracker, so hopefully it will get a little easier.


Agree, this part was silly.
