Blomkamp Confirms His Alien Film Is A Direct Sequel To Aliens

Yes, this is going to be an official retcon of 3 and Resurrection.  I am sure there is no tears shed over that.

I think this is a good spot to remember the passing of folks who are personally important.  I'm sorry to hear of your loss.   Sad

Thanks man, it means a lot.

Yeah, I'm probably going to be a downer today.  Tongue

Sorry for the deviation from the usual celebs, but I needed to vent this somewhere.

So what's better than playing Dead of Winter?  Watch someone play Dead of Winter!

Y'know, the Tychus in this Heroes of the Storm match did an awfully good job.  While credit must go to the rest of the team for their solid play, whenever Tychus showed up, he made a STATEMENT.

Why no, I don't know who was playing Tychus, why do you ask?  Wink

There might be a Settlers of Catan movie.

I know y'all, you're probably already reserving your tickets right now.  Wink

As for Bait, that's barely effective.  Bad guy approaches baby.  Bad guy has a cover guy.  I kill Bad Guy.  Cover Guy now holds baby hostage or retaliates.  Yep.  I lose that game quick.  

What about a zombie apocalypse scenario, one where everyone agrees that "noise attracts them"?  Try to set it up where "random" actually works in your favor.  Let the room the baby's in not be soundproof, but make the path to that room a killzone for any hordes that get attracted.  And if the baby doesn't cry, nothing lost, and you get to rest.

...oh. You mean a zombie apocalypse.

Well, yeah.  That is the section of the forum where we are talking about it.

Considering that Ms Koala won't sign off on a simple, safe* biochemical enhancement procedure that has an excellent chance** of granting superpowers***, what makes you think she'd OK using the tyke as bait?

* Compared to the first generation treatment. Also compared to most of the things we do down here in R&D.
** Compared to the placebo.
*** Legal said I'm supposed to call them unexplained anomalous capabilities. Then I pointed out to legal that Microsoft already had that one locked up. So, superpowers! Besides, it sells better to the test subjects.

I didn't say it was an ideal option, but if they are supposedly as screwed as they say they are, that's usually when the desperate &%$# comes into play.

And I might have set up a scenario that GMs might try.

I keep telling you there are programs and courses of treatment for your daughter's issues.

Toddler Wushu doesn't start until she's 5!  And the last time we tried adaptable Bio-chemistry.. well.. we all remember what happened in Buenos Aires.. well.. most of us anyway.. poor Javier...

Why not use her as a decoy?  Y'know, put her somewhere, have her start crying, gank whoever comes to check it out?

By the way, Neill Blomkamp will officially direct the next Alien movie.

And suddenly there was a light, a glimmer of hope in the darkness that is Hollywood.

What happened in it?

Meh, just another let's play of XCOM: Long War, with a teaser of the next Beta level for the mod, which includes a vastly expanded base location system, where you choose the specific country you start in, and specific bonus to that country (for example, starting in Russia will let you choose Spetznas, which gives you a bonus to Assaults).

Other than that, it seems that 2k and Firaxis were just reaching out to the community on this one.

Sort of was hoping they would spring XCOM 2 on Beagle, but what can you do?  Tongue

Feb 18, 11AM PT/2PM ET XCOM twitch.tv special livestream run by Beaglerush, officially sponsored by 2k and Firaxis

Interesting.  Very very interesting.

EDIT- Sorry, it seems it was Feb 17 when that happened.  As in, it already did.  Tongue  Never mind, move along.

News on the A-10's retirement debacle?

Well, if it's true it's interesting.

Especially the claims that Dick Cheney hated the F-14, or at least the obstacle to the adoption of the F-18 platform it represented.

And if this news has any effect, then it'll prove that the A-10 can withstand politics and keep on flying, therefore officially making it the toughest aircraft in history.  Wink

Neil Blomkamp Might Direct An Alien Movie After All

Right now it isn't final, but seriously, I think the guy's earned the right to make the attempt.
