P.T. revealed as new Silent Hill from Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro starring Norman Reedus -- Gematsu

This could be either the beginning of something great or another embarrassing blunder for Silent Hill.

....I'm sorry, what? That sounds like one of those over-the-top rumors you'd read on seedy blogs before E3. This...will definitely be something to see. But, as you said, whether or not it'll be glorious or gloriously tragic only time will tell.

As is, if there was *any* visionary I'd have to pick to go from TV>Games it'd be Guillermo del Toro.  That man is a true visionary and a breath of fresh air.

I'd like to have faith in the team...cuz, I mean, what the hell? 
I hate the phrase "that's so random", but....that's pretty fucking random [and awesome].

Some final thoughts on Terranigma.

- This was, without a doubt, one of the most original SNES era offerings I have yet to experience.

I remember after some (emphasis on 'some' because the game throws quite a few at you) of the plot twists, I just kinda sat there with my mouth open while it was happening.

Plot-wise, it's hard to find something so unique even today.  Too often I feel we're in "the plot's been done before but they way it's told is good" as a positive spin.

Trails in the Sky

WHY ARE WE SO BAD AT CATCHING BAD GUYS !

I raise you Team Rocket from Pokemo--- oh wait, dammit Ash, stop using them attacks that 'blow them away'.



If you mean the Capua's, you can't catch them!  They're lovable!

Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past...

The first half: I almost feel just fessing up to an obvious truth would have about 1,000% less bullshit than this.
The second half: That just sounds stupid

I thought PS4 was winning the sales-war then.

^I just hope the latter half of the season isn't a sign of the show's future and it's going to have the problem the later seasons of Scrubs did with the story getting in the way of the humor.

Eugh.  That's what drives me nuts.  The "romance" between Boyle and Rosa works because at least it usually IS played up for giggles.  The romance in Parks and Rec works because they also throw in humor while it's happening (most of the time, and when it's not it's very brief).  The Office made it work because that show knew went to be sentimental and made a point of having its "secrets" outted.  I agree, when it's just Peralta and Santiago, the show just STOPS for them two.  No one cares.  I'm rooting for Boyle and Rosa.  :P

I always make the joke about BrBa that a lot of episodes are split with "WE'RE NEVER COOKING AGAIN!!!!" and "Jesse... let's cook...!" between shots of Jesse being both a good guy and a complete twat and Skyler's blowup doll face.

Brooklyn Nine Nine[/u]

= Catchy ass opening

= Rosa, Gina, the Captain and Terry are the best... Actually I like them all most of the time except for Samberg's and Fumero's (Peralta and Santiago) characters.  Amy can be funny, when she isn't trying so hard to be it; a "running gag" that has her being too caring and over-the-top wasn't really funny the first time but it keeps happening.  Honestly, despite being the (more or less) titular characters, they have trouble acting their parts well at all.  Andy Samberg loves being obnoxious, which is fine, but he likes going out of the way for it and calling himself on it too much (i.e. being a little shit for the sake of being a little shit) --- which in effect makes it way less fun.

I almost found the Adam Sandler cameo funny since he and Samberg have a similar style of humor... y'know, where they enter the room and it's like: "HEY I'M ANDY SAMBERG, AND I'M BEING FUNNY".

= Andre Baugher as Captain Holt is *perfect*.  It must be fun to work as emotionless as possible, of course.  He's a perfect blend of matter-of-fact and no-nonsense.

= I love the teaming up of different characters in whatever situations; a lot of characters work super well together using quirk+quirk = comedy.  Basically there's no bad combination.

I fully admit I think The Rock is awesome.  But Sean Connery does bump things up 50 points... Oh, and that FFVIII song that mighta been ripped off from it *grumble grumble*

RIP, Robin Williams.

What Dreams May Come was a great flick and you contributed to a big and wonderful filmography for many film lovers.

In honour, I will listen to Cobra Starship's "You Make Me Feel" which has a cameo by him and Zelda for some reason. 

PS: Robin Williams --- LoZ fan.

^ The consensus for TMNT is pretty typical Michael Bay.  Lots of good action; no childish charm.
26  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: August 11, 2014, 11:02:21 AM
I agreed.  I also read on a bit about the director: Basically he says how there's very little real about the film; it's much less about how realistic it is and more about telling the 'odyssey'.  About once every ten minutes I kept thinking how living on a train X amount of years would even be possible, even with whatever number of cabins.

I really wish I could change the posts per page for only this thread.

Agreed.  I also wonder if there was any movement on this...

To it's credit though it doesn't, by any means, come close to approaching the level of /bad difficulty mod/ that this thing does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQLezKCtDZo

That looks really stupid. I mean, Grandia 2 is ridiculously easy but turning every normal encounter into a 10 minute boss fight isn't the right approach either. Haven't they heard of the middle ground?

Grandia 2's "Eyes of Valmar" boss was probably harder than the final boss fight.  I'm torn on whether I agree because of that.  Agreed that the "Hardmode" in that video is beyond ridiculous.  But goddamn I miss that game and its battle system.... And Child of Light was too short/"small" to be completely filling.

Anyone see Snowpiercer? That seems to be getting shafted with a minimal release

Yes! I somehow convinced my wife to go see it. Pretty darn good movie, with a few flaws I can't go into for fear of spoilers.
Summary:
-Story has been told a million times before, but it's still told well
-Decent action, but very violent
-Chris Evans is great

I DO recommend it. You'd probably like it. Sadly, there are very few show times for it, despite it being a better movie than a lot of the junk playing in 3000 screens. The movie industry baffles the hell out of me.

Brother I loved it. Such an odd tale and premise. The thing I didn't jive with was:
Quote
That one middle-aged guy that was in a suit. He was basically the terminator, killing everyone from the tail section people, to the cops, to the front sectioners. What was up with him? Seemed like he was brought in just for the hell of it.

Code:
Possibly a "villain figure" for the sake of it.  The film sort-of 'needed on' (can't make things too easy).  I thought he was gay, actually.  IIRC his other hitman buddy (with the beard and brown hair) was leaning against him early in the film when Terminator kind of softly shrugs him off.  Then the same dark-haired hitman is then later killed by Yona (impaled by some object she steps up on) and the Terminator gives an angry/sad look that makes him hell-bent on targeting her till the very end.  Yona is specifically the target of both the "through the cabin" shoot out (when the train is on a curved track) and at the end when Curtis is having his chat with Ed Harris

So: Revenge?

And yeah I agree the plot's been told many-a-time.  Many have.  Kudos to Snowpiercer for....telling it in a real one-of-a-kind way though.

To hell with his case worker, call the cops :(

Definitely, that's really messed up and this fella needs some serious help.  Forget the case worker, make a call.  Certainly you've done nothing to warrant such behaviour against yourself nor should you have to be fearful if you can keep hearing him go off.
