Re: Politics & Current Events

Comparing it to a weeks worth of anger about the EA/Star Wars thing is weird. Is it? https://venturebeat.com/2017/11/16/while-gamers-ask-for-loot-box-regulation-trumps-fcc-plans-to-deregulate-net-neutrality/ https://www.reddit.com/r/Showerthoughts/comments/7dmz3i/eas_disaster_is_smokescreening_net_...

Re: Politics & Current Events

The two are getting similar media attention, and that is ridiculous. Recreational outrage is plague. Lots of things get media coverage. This is a weird tangent to take here on something that's very unrelated. https://thumbs.gfycat.com/LazyBrownBufflehead-max-1mb.gif The people that should care abou...

Re: Politics & Current Events

CBS and PBS both cut ties with Charlie Rose.

Re: Politics & Current Events

https://twitter.com/Mikel_Jollett/status/932643662927773701 I seriously wonder what has happened to this country and how do we move forward. I used to try to always see the viewpoint of both sides, but I really cannot put myself in conservative shoes anymore. I really don't know why any middle or l...

Re: Corporate grab ass shenanigans, and so much worse

I'm not quite in "it could be anybody" mode, but I'm really, really close charlie rose is the tipping point for me. Really? I avoid the CBS morning show specifically because I’ve always found him creepy as hell. Yeah, I didn't realize there was this huge love for Charlie Rose. That John O...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

My fault for seeing it, but Justice League really sucked. There was some really surprisingly rough CGI, especially when it came to Superman...which is weird and surprising (if I hadn't read the same criticisms elsewhere already, anyway). But I actually liked JL a lot more than I expected to. It was...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Projections now suggest that Justice League may be the lowest opening weekend yet for a DC Extended Universe film. Justice League is now expected to earn about $93.5 million for the weekend. While that will be enough for the film to win the weekend, it is well shy of the $100-120 million it was ini...

Re: Video Game Thread

In case EA was wondering how fans might feel about microtransactions and a glacially slow progression system.... Star Wars Battlefront II has nearly 4300 user scores on Metacritic, adding up to a whopping 0.8/10 score This is all EA cares about... https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/17/wall-street-is-frea...
