Reading reports that Blizzard is going to nerf Toblorone on the consoles by decreasing turret damage by 30%.  Shame really as we may not see many more Plays of the Game like this one.

I don't think damage is the problem as much as it's speed of target acquisition and target lock.

happy for changes but a shame it's damage.  I really think the damage the turret does is fine and the problem is the target acquisition speed.

Yeah, some sort of mass-colonization effort, I could see. And then as for different crews, they could have different type of ships such medical ships, science ships, etc, escorting the colony along some unexplored edge of space. That'd satisfy all aspects.

Yeah, good point about the sets. That's an angle I hadn't thought about. Sci-fi sets are already among the most expensive, and making new ones all the time would be cost-prohibitive. Hell, even in Trek you had a lot of set re-use between the show and movies with set pieces rejigged for new ships, and most of the time anything wasn't entirely new, just variations. Sometimes they'd even be used for other shows outside Trek.

When I think of Anthology show, I immediately think of The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. But there's no reason that the anthology couldn't be per season, if done right, with a lot of set re-use.  But yeah, all Fuller really says is that the show will have a story-arc, which frankly isn't much of a surprise since so many shows do this now. I think a good middle ground would be setting the series in the same era. Have a 13-episode arc amongst a larger story. Each season could still follow a new crew in the same era dealing with their own story aligning itself with the larger story.

But it sounds like Fuller is saying it will only follow a new crew, with others being met along the way, which is a bit more traditional. I think where people were getting confused is with what he'd originally said he'd love to do with a Trek series.

Well, he did also say the "crews" line is not a typo.

But maybe we're going to see what some have mentioned: an armada or convoy traveling to some destination.  Seems a little too BSG, but who knows.

Haven't been here in a while, but my feedback rating is +62

I've gotten out of console games, the older I get, the less I play on consoles and more on my PC...

So...., I bought an Xbox One, new, about a year ago.

It was played twice, maybe 3 times a few days withing buying it.

It comes with:

One controller
HALO Master Chief Collection (May not work, being a code?)
Rare Replay (Still wrapped)
Mortal Kombat X
Need for Speed Rivals Complete Edition
The Crew
Forza 5

Asking $300 plus shipping.  I may still have the original box in the attic.  I'll have to check.

Fuller had some clarifications which tell us that what we've heard is wrong, at least according to AICN.  Personally, I'm not sure this changes much for certain.  This is along the lines of what I was picturing. 

It's still not entirely clear that these 13 episode story arcs won't be self-contained and that the next season won't be different.  "Anthology show" usually means different stories from episode to episode.  The American Horror Story format is its own thing.

That said, in thinking about it realistically, it doesn't make any sense at all for this series to hop around to different ships and eras and casts.  That concept is the antithesis of hollywood television production.  See, that would require different sets and props and costumes, especially if they're bopping around time.  In television production, they like to keep the locations to a minimum (even on shows where they don't have to build those locations).  It helps cut down on creation costs, but also filming time (which is a big source of cost for production because of the crew required).  For each location that exists in an episode, they have to lock it down and light it, which takes a lot of time and slows down the filming.  For an ongoing series, the more time that can be spent in a single location, the better, as they can either leave the equipment in place or get familiar enough with lighting set ups that it becomes second nature and much faster.

Well, I'm rambling, but the bottom line is that it makes much more sense for the show to focus on the same people and places ep to ep and season to season.  Plus, I'm glad to hear it, because that other idea was stupid.

At this week’s Saturn Awards, CBS All Access’ Star Trek showrunner Bryan Fuller debunked two rumors about the Starfleet hourlong launching in January:

1) The first season will NOT take place between “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” and the first season of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

2) The new series will not be an anthology show.

Fuller also described some things we CAN expect:

* The series will tell a “13-chapter” story, suggesting there will be considerable episode-to-episode continuity. (This is of course not a huge innovation; the third season of “Star Trek: Enterprise” was famous for telling one long story across 24 episodes.)

* This “13-chapter” business suggests also that CBS All Access has so far ordered 13 hours of the new series for 2017. (Does this mean we’re only getting 13 hours in 2017? The first season of “Star Trek: Enterprise” comprised 26 hours. Most seasons of “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: Voyager” were 26 hours long as well.)

* The “New Crews” text in the promo was not a typo. “I think we will be seeing lots of crews in the story,” said Fuller.

* “Eventually. Eventually,” Fuller answered when asked if characters we’ve already met could return.

I'm continuing to follow Gratch's lead in Bravely Second.  I don't think I'll be able to get 100% completion the way that he does, but I have finished my New Game + run and picked up all the optional and hidden summons.  I've also taken his advice to max out my Chompcraft skills and acquired the Growth Egg so I can start working everyone towards max level in all the jobs.  Earning 999 JP from even incidental battles makes the leveling process fly by!

Bizzaro world Gratch is impressed with your progress.
