He was talking about Nixon.  Hence the Vietnam war reference.

I listened to the pilot of "Welcome to Night Vale" based on that Slate recommendation, and I'll definitely be catching up on that one. Really weird but oddly fascinating - will be a good one to listen to in the evenings when the house is quiet.

If only I could play this game. The launcher is terrible, I flat out can't download the game...

It's ridiculous really, you have platforms like Steam for games like this and they still opt to using launchers that constantly get in the way of actually playing the game.

It's driving me insane... I've been trying to play for 9 hours now, lol

Not that it's much consolation, but the installation and launcher issues only came up recently.  I just tried to patch up my game this week and I kept having the installation stall out around 60% and display 0MB/s for the download.  After a few futile attempts to fix the issue, I ended up just leaving the launcher running for a few days and it finally finished the update on its own.

Of course just wait until Gears Remastered Collection is announced. 

Would buy.

The external launcher. At first I thought the game just flat out wasn't downloading because it was "syncing files" at 0MB/s... I let it sit for a while and noticed it was actually downloading at a snails pace. In little tiny bits every few minutes where the download speed will jump a little.

I have a really good connection, I have no idea why it's doing this. Right now I'm at like 30 percent after letting it go for like an hour.

I regret deleting all the files to try and get it to work, because I had about 75 percent of the files before.

The launcher is also riddled with graphical issues. 90 percent of the time I can't see the download bar clearly and half the time I can't see what the download speed is because it's blocked by some weird glitch.

It's infuriating to say the least.

What exactly are you having trouble doing with the launcher? I haven't had any issues with it yet, personally, but maybe something has changed in the last few days.

I actually tested it while writing this post, and it found a new update which is downloading at a pretty solid rate. No trouble with it. Now that I think about it, are you talking about the external launcher or the in-game main menu? I've heard of people having crashes with the latter.

And done. Definitely finished strong.

Spoiler for Hiden:
They really amped up the tension with the space station coming apart and also dropping you into the nest. Man face huggers creep me out.

What I'm not clear on is the source of all the aliens. Aliens (the movie) established the queen laying the eggs. I know that the original Alien movie had the idea of prisoners somehow being converted into eggs (the different parts of the face hugger are converted human body parts), but I thought that idea was thrown out. But here we have tons of Aliens and eggs all over without an egg chamber.

I'm also curious how they will explain Amanda not warning everyone about the Aliens. I'm guessing WY picks her up and keeps her under control for the rest of her life.

Spoiler for Hiden:
About that egg thing...

In a deleted scene from Alien, now restored to most cuts of it, they showed how the lone alien could infect people and turn them into eggs by embedding them in that alien web goo. It was one of the first instances in the series of someone trapped in that goo/webbing saying, "kiiiiill meeee..."

They took it out because the scene kind of ruined the urgent pacing of the ending scenes as Ripley was running away and preparing the ship to self destruct. However, it's been added back in since the movie's classic status lets most people get over the break in pacing, and the director really liked the scene despite its pacing break. Most people who watched the movie when they were young haven't seen the scene.

As for the overall game, I think they could have woven the android segments more into the base game, cutting out the longer and slower android segments. This would result in a shorter, but more concisely paced game.

If you're a fan of Final fantasy, I'd highly recommend the new Theatrhythm Curtain Call game.  It's an absolutely wonderful nostalgia trip wrapped in a solid and fun rhythm game.

You've been talking this up elsewhere, too, I think, so I ended up biting on it a week ago for my entertainment on some flights and business trip. I've been skeptical since I burnt out on the first one pretty quickly, but you're absolutely right. The new one fixes just about every nitpick I can remember having about the original, and improves on every aspect. Really really liking it so far.

The only reason I picked up a dang rhythm game for the 3DS is because of you two. Damn you.

In case anyone is still struggling to unlock characters.  The easiest way is to choose stock, 1 life, set opponent to easiest.  Either kill them or just jump off the stage.  Every 20 matches or so, win or lose, you unlock a new character.
