So PAX East is right around the corner.  Anything you guys are looking forward to?  Two things for me:

Heroes of the Storm panel- Including new heroes that they will be showing off.

Firaxis Games Mega Panel- With "an exciting sneak peek at the latest Firaxis Games project, a special announcement and fun surprises you won’t want to miss!"

Hoping for some more XCOM.  With the Complete Edition coming out, and a new console generation in play, we might be seeing a next-gen sequel.

Part 2

Quick update, stumbled on some pics for the new "Militarum Tempestus Scions" unit (aka Stormtroopers).



...Y'know, they don't look half bad.  Sort of a combo of Kasrkin and the more classic Stormtrooper look.  I'd still like an updated version of Kasrkin, but what can you do?

Still no takers?  Alright, here's a few more:

-The episode was in black-and-white, but the star continued well into the color years of TV.

-The star is well known for playing different characters.

Mickey Rooney, Age 93

That's it, Wolverine is now no longer allowed to make up thread titles for the rest of the internet's days.  Tongue

Alrighty, so no guesses?  Here's a few more hints:

"My card."
"Oh my, what a handy little briefcase!  My goodness, it's still warm!"
*Laughter*
-The episode this line was in was about spies, but the show isn't.

-There was a musical number at the beginning, though not with the star.

-This hint is a red herring.

-Stuff in the box, in the box, in the box!  With music!

-"Hello, I'm working my way through college..."
"WITH A GREAT BIG BEARD LIKE THAT?!"
"I'm not a very good student."

In it's defense the Lee/Kirby Silver Age Cap was never subtle in it's examination of patriotism and those who would take advantage of or twist it to their own ends. Same with societal issues and such.

True, true.  Probably shouldn't have watched cutscenes from Metal Gear Rising the night before.  Over-filled my quota of over-the-top patriotism debate right there.

Saw Captain America: WS.  Quick disclaimer- theater had issues with brightness, so the night stuff was hard to see, and where I was sitting had sound bleed from the theater over.
That said, great action scenes (had me going "hooo" at points), great special effects, everyone who is supposed to be badass were suitably represented as such,

The non-action scenes were more miss for me though.  Mostly because I saw most of the "twists" coming (because I know my lore and my tropes), and the message, though necessary, felt kind of heavy handed to me.

Overall, it is a very competently put together movie, so I would suggest people see it.

Edit-After some time to think, and watching the Sibling Rivalry review, I have come to the conclusion that part of my not shouting this movie's praises is mostly because of me being less inclined towards the theater experience these days.  I get the feeling that when I see this movie again in my home's set-up (humble as it is) I will enjoy it a lot more.  So yes, I recommend seeing this movie.

Saw Grimm today.  And it confirmed today something I had suspected for a while:

Origin is offering the original Dead Space for free. Is it worth getting?

If you have the stomach for it.  There are reasons it spawned a pair of sequels, y'know.

What's funny its that after reading the title of the thread I was expecting a discussion on films like Arsenic and old lace, Rope , or that kind of thing... Aliens doesn't fit on my definition of "Golden Oldies"... Cheesy

Sad to say, anything of the 20th century's counting more and more as "Classic" and "Oldie".  Yes, even the 80s & 90s.  Tongue

How about something really classic?

Name that show!

"My card."
"Oh my, what a handy little briefcase!  My goodness, it's still warm!"

Actually, it's kind of funny you mention Aliens, since that it the one movie that I can honestly say I have only watched indirectly.  I've a few movies that shouted out to Aliens, I've played a whole lot of games inspired by Aliens...  In fact the only direct contact I've ever come to the franchise is Aliens vs. Predator 2 (the PC game, not the movie).  Everything else has been through cultural osmosis, mostly StarCraft and Halo.

What's even funnier?  I have watched Predator.  Yes, I've seen "Get to da choppa!" in person, but I only know "Game over, man!  Game over!" through clips and shoutouts.

You guys know about that SOMA game, the sci-fi horror game from the guys who did Amnesia?
Turns out it's more Bioshock than System Shock.
