We are possibly five years away from fusion reactors

So the Stargate program finally is allowed to let that tech trickle down, I see.  Wink

Zombies with exo-suits

That is all.

If they were going to do Civil War, they should have done it before they executed SHIELD by publically revealing Hydra had eaten out the heart of it. Because Agents of SHIELD is doing a very good job of showing what happens when that sort of database falls into villainous hands.

Civil War is really dangerous territory to be taking the franchise. It turned Reed Richards into someone who's pretty much operating on the same moral level as Doctor Doom, and left them with no way to redeem Stark as a character except to give him personality backup that conveniently last saved before any of the Civil War/Secret Invasion mess started and even now it seems he's starting to veer back into that territory as Marvel basically get around to their version of Infinite Crisis.

True, true.  But remember: this isn't the comics.  This is the crew that made Guardians of the Galaxy a smash hit.  They might be getting a bit overconfident now, but they just might have reason to be.

Uh oh, looks like we will be getting an MCU movie Civil War after all.

Ooooh, maybe we'll get some SHIELD cape buster armor out of this?

One of the things I love is finding artwork for media from its earlier days of development.  It always is interesting to see how a work could have looked like, and how it evolved.  Sometimes the final product is actually an improvement.  Sometimes, though, you wish they had stuck with their original idea.

I don't know about the recent TMNT movie, but I get the feeling some people would have preferred the original.

It sounds like James Pethokoukis is a little bitter after Hot Pikachu spurned his advances.

Aaaaand the counter argument.

Lo, and I have had mine own eyes opened to the cause and the solution for all the ills of our (as in, America's) once strong economy.  We need to get rid of cosplayers!

This forum really needs a ROFL smiley.

Heroes of the Storm: Slash Dance

Some are different than originally, some haven't changed much (hello Uther), and some didn't have one to begin with (Go Jimmy! Go Jimmy!).  Hope to be able to use some of these with the fancy skins.

Military base would be nice but I'm quite sure they are locked up. Military is first to react and never risk its ability to response to threats. So, soldiers will give stern orders to get off, or otherwise...

Which is probably a good thing that in Z-Corp, you are the military.

I'm not seeing the virtue of hiding in the woods - even woods with abundant game. An absence of civilized infrastructure is a far greater hindrance to the tool using human than to the bestial Z-threat.

Any military base anywhere is a better supplied, better prepared hold-out than giving the Z-horde a thousand trees to hide behind as it shuffles towards your family.

It depends on the woods.  A few of the forests of northern New England area used to be farmland, for instance, so you have good reason to cut down trees in those areas, which you could then use as a fuel source for winter or building materials.  Of course, those areas also have the advantage of mountainous terrain, and a population that is relatively spread out and used to the idea of general isolation.

The Last Stand - Dead Zone

MMO game where character tries to get resources, ammo, junk, (to recycle it to resources) and survivors.

Ah yeah, I'd forgotten about that series.  Haven't tried the MMO, so I can't say anything about that.  I do know that the first to are not really necessary playing, since they are rather simplistic wave shooter games with a survivor/supply/trap twist.  The third is sidescroller Fallout, which I found quite interesting.  You also, if I can remember correctly, come across a group of soldiers holding out in a stadium where they are protecting survivors (and giving them to the Evil Corperation).

Conspiracy Theories. A mad scientist got brilliant idea to test a same virus with humans which makes bees to "zombies" and kill them. Okay, bees don't attack each other to bite hive pals, but I'm sure you got a picture...

That's sounds about as dumb as a genetically engineered hornet that's somehow supposed to increase beef output, yet instead created zombie cattle.  Wait...

Human Resources Kickstarter Trailer

Well that's... excessively depressing.

Alien Isolation Review

Yes, that is the Jim Sterling forgiving Sega for Colonial Marines.  Holy crap.

It turns out that there are at least two counter covert ops techs in the game.

One is a tile improvement that uses drone swarms for surveillance, which reduces the maximum intrigue that a city can build by two levels (out of five).  For those that don't know, level three and lower doesn't effect the person being taken from, such as siphoning money (lvl 0), stealing techs(lvl 2), or recruiting defectors (free military units, lvl 3), while four and five do (hacking satellites, coup d'état, and affinity super weapons).
The other is a wonder you can build called Human Hive, which reduces a city's maximum intrigue by four.  So the best enemy spies can do is siphon money and science.  Which makes sense, since it would be difficult hiding your thoughts from an entire mind collective.  It also should be noted that researching the tech that lets you build this wonder gains you a ton if Supremacy points, enough to bump you up a few levels in one go.

McDonald's Monopoly promotion: the odds of what you'll win.

Quote from: article
As we mentioned earlier, the odds you win any prize is approximately 1 in 4, a probability of 25%.

So what does this mean? Well, comparing the two probabilities, 89.9% of the prizes will be food prizes. Hope you're hungry.

In fact, 4 out of every 11 prizes allocated will be a medium fries.

Medium fries, for sure.

Mmmmmmm.  Fries.

By the way, you will fear Purity's pointy helmets.
