Question for those who saw it:  is the 3D worth the extra cost of admission?  Or does it seem tacked on or superfluous?

Go see it in IMAX- the entire movie was filmed with an IMAX camera

I read it wasn't

Quote
If you are wondering whether it is worth it to see it in Imax 3-D, then the answer is more complicated than you might think. It definitely enhanced the experience, but I am not sure if it needed to be Imax. Since only portions of the film were shot in Imax, the aspect ratio is constantly changing, which can be annoying. I would probably recommend seeing it just in 3-D, as some of the shots look incredible just because of their depth. The only downside is that the 3-D is very cool at the beginning, but as you get used to it, it stops being noticeable.

Both of these are not true.  They merely opened up parts of the movie to 1.90:1 for IMAX, and framed those shots with open/IMAX framing in mind, but IMAX cameras were NOT used.  The only movie released in 2014 actually shot with IMAX cameras at all was Transformers 4.

Generally, RPGs and open world games (though I managed to get through GTA5, perhaps because it just drew me in).  I find it too easy to get distracted with side missions and forget to advance the story and wind up getting bored with them after a time.

This isn't the first time Arclight has complained about the Hollywood conspiracy to make Christians appear homophobic, sanctimonious, judgmental, and broadly ignorant.  He said the same thing upon entering the Duck Dynasty thread.  

It was just before he condemned homosexuality as sinful; perverted some biblical parables about compassion and acceptance into a defense of bigotry; and snidely dismissed science as a godless form of blind faith.

NPD reports that the XBox One outsolde the PS4 in the US in December, and December 2013 was the Wii U's best month ever.

Only if you believe Microsoft's increasingly strange ways of defining "best selling". In this case they're specifically talking about earnings, which nobody would talk about using "best selling". The Xbox One costs more than the PS4, so it needs to sell less to achieve this "victory".

Got a cite for that?  Every single NPD report I find for December talks about units only.

Funny that TiLT talks about facts when this exchange happened.

The chart in the Super Mario 3D World story on the front page is wrong.

The story claims half a million people have bought the game, but the chart only claims 50,000.  0.05 in millions = 50,000, not 500,000.  Might want to get that fixed?

Didn't Alabama lose at home and not even play in their conference championship game, but still play for the national title only 2 years ago?  If anyone loses in the next couple weeks and Alabama wins, they'll go right back.  Does anyone see them dropping below 4 with how the votes go?

Please explain, logically, a scenario where if one of undefeated FSU (which WILL be ranked #1) or OSU (which should be ranked #2) loses that Alabama makes it in over the other to play the winner of Auburn/Missouri.

Go ahead.  I'm waiting to see how Alabama will jump an undefeated team to play for the title.

Well for one, the Big 10 is pure shit and Ohio State is a fraud.  If Auburn wins out they will play for the National Championship, even if Ohio St and FSU do not lose.  When the computer rankings come out this week, Auburn will barely be behind Ohio St and if they win the SEC title game, they will jump them no problem.  If there are loses from Ohio St, Auburn, FSU then Alabama will be right there if they win out.

EDIT: And for the record, when did CFB ever have to make sense?  It's senseless every single year. 

None of this tells me me how Alabama will jump an undefeated team to play for the title, since your scenario requires no undefeated teams.

52 (weeks) x4 (hours)=208 hrs.  52 days (1 extra day per week) x 10 hour shift= 520 hours, so 728 extra hours per year. (If you are an 8 hour workday person, that is equal to 91 extra days per year). If you look at it strictly on pay-per-hour, and factor in gas and drive time, I would be making less than I am now

Your math here is wrong - 728 extra hours per year would mean you're working 50 hours per week.  The 208 hours is the correct number in going from 36 (1872) to 40 (2080) - 2080 - 1872 = 208.  Remember, two of your hours go away on the first three days of every work week, where they're transferred to the extra day + 4 hours.

Ars Technica Xbox One review.

Bottom line: "Buy it if there are exclusives that appeal to you, not for the bells and whistles. Otherwise, save $100 and get a PS4."

That is basically what it boils down to. If you are in love with MS exclusives, then you should by all means get an Xbox.

If not, save yourself $100 and get the system that plays all of the other games better, the PS4.
