Just wanted to chip in on how amazing this week's Dynamite was. Shida’s new gear is fire! Also a great match! HANGMAN IS A TREASURE AND I LOVE HIM. Also reading this thread today was also a tonic. Thank you.

Thread AEW Dynamite |OT2| #JoinDarkOrder
Man the matches this week were so damn good, it's insane. Nyla/Riho was so especially great. It both felt inevitable and earned at the same time, can't wait to see what happens with the women's division moving forward. Britt was pretty good this week, and seems like the Nightmare Collective is all but done with Brandi now, which on one hand is a bummer, but on the other, interesting in terms of angles for that group. All the tag team matches were incredible. I can't believe they throw this shit out on TV for free. COWBOY SHIT! I find it endlessly fascinating that their two biggest angles (Mox/Jericho & Rhodes/MJF) are the two I have the least interest in, but they're still entertaining, none the less.

The NC is only ever going to be as good as their adversaries... I think the gimmick itself is fine. In fact I kinda even like it. But for them to be credible and random, they need folks on the mic the other side to push back. I think it will get there. I mean next week we get a Statlander and Shida tag team. That's some good shit right there. Gimme!

Thread Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker |OT| Revenge of a Sith (SPOILERS NOW OPEN)
Like, remember when it took like 22 movies before we fucking hear 'Avengers.... assemble' and everyone lost their minds because holy shit they did it they got the hokey-est-it-will-never-work-on-screen thing from the comics to work and to have meaning and be one of the best moments of that entire of movies. What do we get here? "Dudes, go and get help." And, then, suddenly, for some reason... everyone just shows up. And that's kinda that. And it didn't really matter anyway. I guess that sums up the whole movie for me. Absolutely nothing was earned. Not a single damn thing. Every meaningful moment was overwritten seconds after it happened. The themes were, at best, flimsy as fuck and at worst just thrown into the pot because there has to be something there, right? And the treatment of Rose was just the biggest 'fuck you' I can remember. Awful. Yes, sideline an established character for maybe Lando's daughter which comes out of fucking nowhere and is absolutely fucking meaningless. Also why the lady with the helmet wearing eyeliner under it? Like, what the fuck? Also, y'all are telling me the Death Star blew up, crashed on Endor, then someone made a dagger pointing to Maguffin town like it was the fucking Goonies or some shit? Come I don't even want to get into the Rey bloodline. It's fucking stupid. It is not a good movie. At all. Man the tragedy of Darth Plaguis the Wise aint got shit on the sequel trilogy.

Gosh I miss that Halo so much. I'm really sad that there really aren't many (if any, as I can't think of one at all) that rewards map and weapon control like Halo did. The rush for the Power Weapons leading into massive firefights and then holding on to that weapon for as long as possible was such a great experience (albeit a steep learning curve if coming in late to the party). Now I am sad.

Thread Does anyone still enjoy ALL of Star Wars ? A reflection on the constant negativity
I checked out hard for a really long time after the PT. When I returned (and I still haven't watched the PT again because I don't own it and it's never on TV/Netflix for obvious reasons) and when I came back it was with a sense of 'healthy' detachment that's let me just fucking enjoy it again for what it is. I liked TFA, RO, TLJ and even have some love for Solo (it's pretty good!). And it feels fine. Like, there was a point where Star Wars was like this defining thing for me personally, and losing that after the PT was a bit odd but it's given me a much healthier way (there were some bumps along that road for sure) of content in general, regardless of what it is - be it Marvel, Transformers, whatever. I don't get overly hung up on or get bent out of shape over other people's creative visions and execution on stuff I used to be so hyper-invested in. So, I guess the answer is, I like it. It's pretty good. Probably even the prequels (thanks, Prequel Memes!).

Thread Peanuts has really stood the test of time.
Peanuts, both animated and in strip form, is a timeless treasure. And you know what, that CG movie they released isn't half bad either even when they're trying to modernise it and give it as happy an ending as anything Peanuts could ever really have in 90 minutes. It's really wonderful stuff that lives beyond its time unlike, let's say, Garfield. Which I loved as a kid, and now I barely tolerate, my love for Peanuts endures. Although animated and longform Garfield at it's peak is so much better than the strip.

Hmm... - Played games. A lot. Had my heart set in writing about them. - Knocked out a fanzine (pre-internet) with some friends. - Fanzine appeared in the Face magazine - very trendy in the 90’s! - That somehow led to a job in TV reviewing games. Was not great at it to be honest but that’s a whole other story. - That opened the door to games retail. - That opened the door to a QA position at Sony. - Which led to a game design position at Sony and I’ve been doing this for 20+ years now.

Maybe once upon a time but QA is now such a super specialized and role that no, you can't just replace them in a minute. They don't sit and play the game, they have their hands just as dirty as anyone creating content and features in engine pushing everything to breaking point and beyond. When I was in QA some... 20+ (yikes) years ago all you could do was have a build of the game and do what you could to break it, now QA work in-engine a lot of the time, testing things on a basis rather than just per-level throughout the entirety of development. They're amazing and should be treated as an essential and integral part of development teams, treating them as disposable does them a disservice and only makes the end product worse in the end.

He was downed stopping us from making any progress. Add to this nobody actually watching the healers back and screams of "I NEED HEALING! WHERE'S THE HEALING?!"

I think the auto region detect might just be there to brute force carts into working. My assumption is that if you set the resolution to XXXXp 60 then that sets how the games run. I don't really know how to test this - 90% of my carts are PAL and the four I have out of storage are all PAL too. I've definitely triggered the SOR2 region lock by changing regions while it's been running so something there is working at least.

Indeed. And he does this in a world that makes it so easy just to throw his hands up and submit to the external forces around him. Instead he's totally steadfast to his promise of doing the right thing even at great personal cost. I legit believed they were going to make Cap suck butts in the MCU, but to make him this fantastic, this endearing, this believable... it's a real feat, especially considering the number of hands he's passed through in terms of writers and directors. For me, he's the absolute standout best thing the MCU has achieved - to deliver on that promise of the of Captain America without being cheesy or overly-sentimental (and completely devoid of flag-waving bullshit!). It's wonderful and a real impossibility to follow up. Not sure even Carol is going to be able to stand up to his legacy.

Thread Blizzard should be working on Overwatch 2 or something and goddamn it's so obvious
I think until the engine buckles under its own weight, a sequel is unnecessary. Balance, ability and character changes can simply be part of the rolling updates. This has both benefits and drawbacks, the overall risks of losing players who won't transition outweigh whatever perceived advantages switching titles will bring. Dota 2 has had some really fucking swings in terms of changing the game outside of simple balance changes and not needed to move everyone to a new game. Moving to a new title, I feel, is a relatively short-sighted solution to a longer term problem which can be overcome with what they already have.

Thread Watchmen vs. V for Vendetta...which film adaptation failed the worst?
V for Vendetta is a clumsy bludgeoning of the source material. Watchmen is a clumsy mishandling of the source material. So I guess V for Vendetta was worse? I understand that that's not a popular opinion but man that movie rubs me up the wrong way every 10 or so minutes. Yuck.

People acting like Holdo's plan wouldn't have worked if the Hacker hadn't taken a heel turn. It was a good plan. It would have worked. Poe didn't deserve to know. He done goofed up and got demoted.

Thread Star Wars: The Last Jedi |OT3| The War is Just Beginning (Unmarked Spoilers)
Hello Star Wars Era. I have seen this movie once on opening night. I liked it, on the whole. Many divisive things are cool with me; Snoke getting offed, Grumpy Luke, Ben's reason for heel turning, Rey's lineage - loved all that. However some things have not sat right with me. One I am just going to shrug off, which is Leia flying back to the ship after being blown into space. Whatever. The second is a little more difficult for me (and hopefully a second viewing will help with this) so here goes (and please be nice here as you school me...): Luke's Force Projection. For me, it didn't feel like that moment was earned, like, at all. While a fully acknowledge there were some clues there - the change in appearance from his hermit look - the whole "aha gotcha!" felt a little cheap. I liken it, in some ways, to the "Khan" moment in Into Darkness (that particular instance I have a much better grasp on so let's not go there, please) where it felt like it was just dropped in our laps for cheap nostalgia (though Luke's thing is not nostalgia). This just felt... I dunno, kinda empty as a dramatic turn. The ramifications and reactions are all totally fine - but the reveal itself just left me going "Ok, I guess you can do that now?". Unless I missed some really subtle foreshadowing or outside of the outfit change, it's the only part of the movie that feels hollow, like a deus ex machina(?). Apologies if I've not really explained myself very well but it's really the only point in the movie that gives me pause. PLEASE BE KIND.

Thread ParentERA |OT| What To Expect When You’re Not Sleeping
Man this is bringing back some memories. Our first wouldn't sleep on his own for maybe nine months? My wife would have him during the day and he would only sleep on her chest. I would get home, have dinner and then she'd go to bed for five or six hours if she was lucky and he didn't need a feed, while he slept on my chest until I couldn't stay awake any longer and then she'd take over. He had a really bad case of colic and this continued until he could roll over and sleep on his front and even then he needed constant soothing so while we were getting more sleep it was still broken as he'd need soothing a lot during the night. This was worse for me as I was getting my sleep interrupted rather than a solid block. We tried a pacifier but he just spat it out and would only sleep when we comforted him. Obviously your situation sounds way more complicated than my own, and you have my deepest sympathies. The best thing I can say is that... it pass. He's now an amazing sleeper (I mean, he's four now so thank fuck for that) and has been that way for 3+ years. , so stay strong - we're always here to listen.

Thread LTTP failure: Uninstalled Bioshock 2 after 20 minutes of play
Bioshock 2 is unfairly maligned. I'm surprised to see so many "it's overrated!!!" posts in here. It was never highly regarded until Minerva's Den hit. Personally I think it's the strongest Bioshock game to date as it doesn't rely on a 'shock' twist for its payoff and the defining moment of the game is really wonderfully executed. On top of its solid, if overly repeated, mechanical hooks it stands the test of time way better than the original or Infinite. I think it's biggest issue in terms of the 'trilogy' is that it doesn't really have a strong identity of its own, instead revisiting what is an incredibly powerful and iconic location. If it wasn't set in Rapture I think people would have given it a fairer shake of the stick upon release. And I say all this as someone who's never played Minerva's Den. Also, somewhat off topic - Bioshock games are really something! Whew.
