Anyone listen to this week's episode of Serial?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Again, there seem to be more problems with Jay's story. He certainly had more to do with the murder than he's letting on. But Adnand's cell phone pinging the two near Leakin Park around the time Jay claimed they were burying the body is pretty damning.

For example, the payoff of Hulk sucker punching Thor wouldn't work without the animosity built up when they were fighting earlier. If I wanted meaningless action, I'd watch Transformers movies.

I suspect that scene in the trailer where Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver standing willingly behind Ultron is one their usual edited scenes for trailers, and that it'll be Vision that they're standing behind in the full movie. They do that a lot, like where they filmed a scene for Captain America 2 where:

Spoiler for Hiden:
In the movie, it was Nick Fury's body on a slab with Black Widow standing over him, but in the trailer it was a faceless body covered by a sheet.

Speaking of Eco-Logic, I'm curious how people feel about the increasingly provocative line of signatures he's been using these last several weeks. 

The first one I noticed was a broadcast that anyone who wanted Governor Rick Perry to resign was "part of the problem."  Just after the first report of an Ebola outbreak, he changed it to a warning that President Obama is acting against our best interests.  That apparently didn't get the reaction he wanted, so the updated and current version reads:

Quote from: Eco-Logic
This signature is not personal, at all.  If you're not awake enough to realize our country is being taken down by an organized effort from a puppet chimp being controlled by a movement older than me.  Wake the freaking fack up.

I cannot think of anyone else on the forum who would be so classless as to spam every single post they make -- again -- with their shrill political agenda.  However, if someone did, other people would at least have the option to open a thread in Politics & Religion where a frank exchange of ideas would not derail the 'What Are You Buying This Week?' thread.  We don't have that option with Eco-Logic since he was banned from the P&R board for repeatedly telling everyone to fuck off every time he left GamingTrend forever.

Outside of his signature, I have not seen any examples of Eco-Logic trying to key people up.  He's clearly capable of contributing to the community in positive ways, yet occasionally, randomly, chooses not to do so. That's why I'm not calling for any specific action here, as I have no idea what to even recommend, but I'm interested to hear what others think.

This looks to answer the question, "Wouldn't it be awesome if the last hour of Avengers could be the WHOLE movie?"

I can answer that right now: No.

The last hour of the first movie was as awesome as it was because of the first hour of the movie.  Pacing, build, and generating a connection to the characters are what make the end work.

Wedon is all about character development and earning the action, so I don't think this movie will be too different in that regard.  The bigger moments are what trailer well, so that's what you see to entice you to come.

I bought it, and I'm holding each person who posted in this thread personally responsible!  And I'd just like to say...thanks for helping tip me over the edge!  Can't wait to dive in this weekend.

Great review!  I'm holding off for a sale simply because my backlog can't take any more.  Really looks good though, if I hadn't already bought Legend of Grimrock 2 I probably would have taken the plunge.  From the reviews and impressions I've seen, including TB's and several others, it looks like there are lots of people out there that are pissed because this isn't the Alpha Centauri 2 they expected.  For some reason that just bugs me.  Why can't people appreciate a game for what it is, not for what they want it to be?  If they don't like it that's fine of course, but it would be nice if it was the game itself and not "It is not Alpha Centauri, so I hate it."  I played ALOT of that game back in the day, it was indeed great but I think most of these people have their rose-colored glasses on.

NVidia's latest drivers added this DSR tech which allows you to play games in higher resolutions than your monitor can display. Kinda like the SweetFX injectors. You need to be running at 1080p and have a GeForce 500 or above. Like the Adaptive vsync option they added awhile back this one actually works too. Well depending on the game.

The Witcher 2 probably offered the most noticeable change. Everything was so sharp now, particularly on the characters when they went in to cut sequences. I could see every little detail on Garrets shirt and those that he was talking too. Just walking around town was fantastic as there was such a clarity and sharpness to everything. The downside is the text/icons are now tiny.

Watch Dogs didn't look noticeably that much better. I noticed the water looked great but the city looked kinda lifeless still. Although I did head to Millennium Park and looking out from some trees back towards the city was pretty scenic. Generally though it didn't offer the wow factor Witcher 2 had. And there was a noticeable frame rate drop.

Alien: Isolation already looked fantastic to me. It looks just a bit better with DSR enabled and didn't notice a performance hit.

As luck would have it I started playing Everquest 2 again recently. So I figured why not pump the resolution way up. Well it certainly changed. The text/icons were micro-tiny now, and things were sharper, but it still looked like crap due to the low resolution textures. Basically like trying to put lipstick on a pig. So I went back to my normal resolution.

Tried it also on Shadows of Mordor, and while things looked sharper my framerate went from a constant 60 down to a wobbly 45 fps. Wasn't worth it so put the resolution back.

I tried a few other games too but think this gives an idea. I have to say its kinda awesome how its implemented as you just go in to the game, go to the games video options, and the new resolutions are available for you to change to. Simple as can be.

I'm not going to lie - Spader's Ultron voice gave me chills, especially when it went devoid of emotion for the last line. I do love the look of things here, but I don't know. I'm anxious to see it but I'm really getting tired of all the Marvel movies boiling down to defusing a ticking bomb at the very last second. I have doubts this will be different in that regard, but then I see the Hulk catch the Hulkbuster's punch and I'm back to drooling uncontrollably. retard

There is in fact a remove button!

IF, however, Eco removed his own thread, I think he should be temp banned as it's just pure bad form (and I've gamed with him in the past and like him from those experiences).

 Torches and Happiness! Torches and Happiness! Torches and Happiness! Torches and Happiness! Torches and Happiness! Torches and Happiness! Torches and Happiness! Torches and Happiness!

And no, I'm not kidding.
