Wow, you are sure forgiving of this season. I thought this past episode was pretty weak. I'm really getting tired of how the current Doctor is written. He's far too mean, and apparently clueless about humans, despite interacting with them for many many years. What's the deal with calling Pink a P.E. teacher over and over again? Why is this not explained? And why is he so anti-soldier?

I like how Capaldi's doctor is written - it's actually a nice change from the last two.

It's funny, I don't remember people complaining about Eccleston's doctor being too grumpy.

I will grant that last week's episode sucked - and sucked hard.

I don't get the anti-soldier thing either, given his past with UNIT, but many people suspect it's due to the Time War.

That said, the buzz on the coming episode is positive all around. I've read a few spoiler-free reviews and they've all been universally positive.

Lots of people saying this might be even better than Listen (which I thought was only soso, so we'll see).

I hope you guys like

Just another reason to avoid it.

I would expect next gen style price gouging hikes.

Remember when we talked about how much Amazon.ca sucks balls?

Delivery estimate: Nov. 18 2014 - Dec 17 2014

I'm hoping this is a joke and I'll get it in 4-8 days as the shipping option I chose.

Good luck with that.
My cough will not go away to the point that I am starting to wonder if I have this stupid respiratory virus that's going around.

Or TB.

I have absolutely no problem with waiting to see the game until it's ready.

They changed directors during FF12 and plenty of people liked that game just fine.

It isn't necessarily a disaster and the fact that it's changing because Nomura wants to focus on something else, rather than burnout indicates it's at least being done for the right reasons.

I have a pretty rotten cold so I've stayed in this weekend - but I picked up South Park and I am loving it.

Holy christ though, Al Gore is bloody annoying.

I actually thought it was pretty bad. The teaser promised us something that never really happened. I was expecting a creepy monster of the week episode, but we got something entirely not that
The story was all over the place, and made no sense.
There were a few good lines, and a few good moments, but the rest was just...ugh.
And I really wish the doctor would stop insulting Clara on her appearance! It's like a creepy old man trying to re-assure himself that he's not turned on by the hot young lady, when it's the exact opposite. It's mostly just mean, though, and serves no point in the story.
MaryAnns review explains pretty much how I saw this episode better than I can:
http://www.flickfilosopher.com/2014/09/doctor-blogging-listen.html

I thought it was trying to have its cake and eat it too. It was trying to be a scary monster of the week episode but also be deliberately vague and you're right, it just ended up not making sense.

I agree with most of your friend's critique, but this - "• Let’s talk about the unintended creepiness of having an episode revolve around the Doctor bluffing his way into a home for vulnerable children in the middle of the night." is reading too much into it.

As for Capaldi, he is the best doctor since the show came back in 2005.

I love when it's sometimes cheaper to import something from that States, shipping charges and all, than it is to buy an item on its own from Amazon.ca.

I've had more problems with Amazon flat out refusing to ship me stuff than I have had with any other company.

Want to buy a game in another region? Too bad.

Want to buy a game that the Canadian site doesn't have? Too bad.

Want to buy a game on the US site that's $20 cheaper? Too bad.

Amazon fucking sucks.

IIRC wasn't FF7 praised as one of the things that made the PSX as popular as it was?

Yep, for sure - but no one was saying the fate of the PS1 depended on it either.

I, for one, wouldn't complain about a Saga HD collection.  I tend to prefer TT's storytelling style in Gears and Saga (well, to be fair, only 1 was entirely TT's creation) over Blade.  Blade's characters also suffered due to lack of Soraya Saga.

I refuse to ever touch 2 again under any circumstance, though I'd replay the fuck out of 1 and 3.

The first disc isn't actually that bad. It's just the second disc where it starts to drag.

Amazon.ca just went up in my esteem from bad to weird.
Tons of things are only available on amazon.COM and .CA can be pretty bare on sometimes.

AND THEN http://www.amazon.ca/Monster-Musume-Vol-4-OKAYADO/dp/162692046X/

(and this was in the "People who bought Ar Nosurge also bought this" lol)
...
(man, volume 1-6 for 54.10$ ! What a steal)

Amazon.ca is horrendous.

It only took three and a half weeks, but I finally have internet at home. Man, Canada is such a third world country in some respects.

Is Capaldi the best Doctor of the new series run?

Yes. Yes he is.
60  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: September 10, 2014, 02:31:56 PM
At least they're doing a retail release.

If they did this kind of release with every game, everyone would be happy.
