A little Gems of War, a lot of The Surge maybe some Human Resource Machine.

The Surge started out a little rough for me, but I was starting to get a better handle on it last night so my opinion is improving. I switched weapons again and found a new armor set with higher stability, but without as many downsides as the Rhino gear that I am excited to upgrade and try out.

Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Alien: Covenant
Last post by rittchard - May 19, 2017, 05:29:10 PM
I still consider Aliens my all-time favorite movie, it just has everything I want in a movie and more.  It holds up so well over time, the effects still look pretty fantastic compared to today's big budget CGI creations.  But more importantly, the storyline, pacing, script/dialog, characters/acting, and intensity are all just fantastic.

So of course every time another Alien franchise movie came out, I would get my hopes up and then become disappointed one way or another.  Part 3 was like a disrespectful slap in the face when they killed off two of the key characters from Aliens.  It worked OK as a stand-alone movie but was an insult in the framework of the series.  I was so excited (and now disappointed) to hear they might do a sequel that ignored that timeline.

As for Prometheus, I thought it was enjoyable but nothing too special.  At this point I am pretty jaded on any Alien movie concept, particularly any form of prequel.  For me no matter what they do it will pale in comparison to Aliens unless they can take a very different direction. 

The reviews for Covenant sound good so far, so I'll certainly give it a chance, but honestly I have pretty low expectations.

Days?? You guys sure are on your feet. I was expecting months :D

Couple questions:

-Is there any quick way to jump to the most recent post in a thread (as the old forum had)? I don't so far seem to find any icon that does that, just clicking on the highest forum page number and then scrolling down.

-Does anyone else get an error message when trying to login from the main forum page? When I'm a on a sub-forum page I can login fine, but I usually get an error message when trying to login from the main page.
Don't worry too much about this forum.  Not to tip my hand too much, but we are talking days, likely this weekend, that it goes away and is replaced by the unified system.   Finishing some last second launch details...
Aren't you supposed to be somewhere this weekend? :ninja:
I am indeed.  Provided the whole damned place doesn't blow away!   Stupid Texas weather...

I got into the divine beast Vah Rudania last night so I hope I will have time to finish it up and get exploring again.
