As my wife (who's a bit of a paleo-enthusiast) justifies, it sort of almost makes sense in the context of the Jurassic Park series because these creatures are ultimate just genetically engineered chimeras made by a corporation. You could TOTALLY see a bunch of corporate dickheads in a boardroom being like 'Feathers… » 11/23/14 2:50pm Today 2:50pm

Definitely leave Haven around 5-6. If you're an insane completionist you can come back later, but there's no reason to completely clear it before moving on (and considering the last 'stuff' you can do there caps is like level 12?) In fact, with this game I would go so far as to say ignore the completionist instinct:… » 11/22/14 3:49pm Yesterday 3:49pm

I do think the big thing this series is missing is not allowing Constantine to be the ruthless character he is in the comics. Honestly, for me that's the most appealing part about the character: He's likeable in that cynical, sarcastic way and keeps being forced to essentially cross the line. The books do justify it,… » 11/16/14 1:48pm 11/16/14 1:48pm

Here's the thing for me. D&D as a traditional storytelling universe isn't that spectacular. I mean, you have Drizz't, and Elminster, and a few stories here or there but they generally break down into fairly generic fantasy. D&D's strength is a solid foundation for being able to tell your own stories. It's an… » 11/13/14 2:13pm 11/13/14 2:13pm

So, the Master Chief Collection is a beautiful example of how to to package a legacy-style game. Even ignoring all the making of an additional content, it's really cool to be able to switch between the games original graphics setting and the remastered version on the fly, to compare and contrast or just play the way… » 11/11/14 8:36pm 11/11/14 8:36pm

Some of the Secrets of Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void Trailer…

So Blizzard Entertainment finally released a trailer to the final game in the Starcraft 2 trilogy, titled Legacy of the Void. The trailer shows the Protoss, led by Artanis, as they move to reclaim Aiur from the Zerg menace and rise to challenge the threat of the 'Dark Voice' Amon who threatens to remake the galaxy in… » 11/10/14 12:56am 11/10/14 12:56am

That's actually a pretty interesting thought. Particularly for the generation I grew up in, there was a glut of low quality 'children's' cartoons. That was what most people (children, their parents, and pretty much anyone in proximity to said children) were exposed to, and any outliers (such as Japanese animation)… » 11/07/14 1:15am 11/07/14 1:15am

Wow that's so weird that your copy of windows specifically was having the problem, and that they would actually call you at home to fix it. That's super thoughtful of Windows, guys.

But just to be sure you should give them your social security number, debit card number, birthday, gene sequence next time, just to be… » 11/06/14 8:50pm 11/06/14 8:50pm

One of things I feel Marvel is generally doing wrong is it's handling of villains in general. Very similar to Guardians of the Galaxy. Ronan the Accuser and Nebula were pretty damn striking and completely superfluous to the movie. Ronan had a fantastic design and literally all he did in every scene was snarl and spout… » 11/06/14 8:43pm 11/06/14 8:43pm

Prestiege also kills the girlfriend by having her hang herself. It's a double.

There's also an ugly undercurrent of his films being about a man being obsessed with some idea or goal and the woman being the distraction or the one who ruins it. (Leonard being taken advantage of to deal with an abusive boyfriend in… » 11/06/14 5:44pm 11/06/14 5:44pm

Hemsworth's character also stops in his recommendations of literature with the line '...And you have no pants.' and quickly exits, completely embarrassed. He's almost shy. He also isn't huge on PDAs until we get into the Cabin. As the scenes progress, the physical distance between the two characters gets smaller and… » 11/01/14 3:45pm 11/01/14 3:45pm

Not even the moderates, when pressed, sound all that moderate. 'We just want ethics in Games Journalism' sounds okay on the face of it, if a little preoccupied with something meaningless in the first place. Dig a little deeper and it's cries of nepotism and collusion, the former of which is maybe an issue although… » 10/30/14 6:57pm 10/30/14 6:57pm

Warhammer: Eternal Crusade almost tried Crowdfunding, Games Workshop…

Anyone remember Eternal Crusade, the once-massively multiplayer online role playing gameturned... free to play something? It still remains in development, with little more than alpha footage to show. They recently opened up founder's program, but that wasn't apparently their first decision. According to This article… » 10/29/14 11:04pm 10/29/14 11:04pm

My guess: Shield ends up reinstated (bound to happen eventually) because various governments decide that all this superheroic nonsense is getting WAY out of control, and they start cracking down on it. Providing a sort of wider context to the conflict that will drive Civil War. » 10/29/14 9:15pm 10/29/14 9:15pm

The best part about the spinning Lightsaber is the pair of giant 'stab here please' holes. Also, somebody with more actual practical weapon experience might be able to answer this, but wouldn't a weapon like that be kind of insanely more dangerous than a double-side-lightsaber? I mean, that'd be dangerous too,… » 10/28/14 2:55pm 10/28/14 2:55pm

My weird theory:

Infinity War part 1 will be Thanos beating the holy shit out of our current Avengers team, so badly that they manage a pyrrhic victory at best, and most likely just manage to stave off complete disaster. As a result, the current team of Avengers will be largely broken (and oh look their contracts are… » 10/28/14 5:16pm 10/28/14 5:16pm
