Well, they've officially announced the name of Episode VII:

What, has the Force been sleeping all this time?

That would explain the Prequels!

In other news, some reviews of Interstellar are in.  I am a bit worried now, since the ones I trust are noting a bit of disappointment in it, citing that this is what happens when a (essentially) robot-director tries to convey human emotions in a movie.  Maybe they should have had Chappie direct?

Navy SEAL who shot Osama bin Laden identified

One of the SEAL's stated reasons for coming out of the shadows is the really shitty way that he's been treated by the government since retiring from service.

I think the hover bikes are pretty much completely unnecessary - there's not much they did you couldn't do with some other advanced ground vehicle and have kept it more near-future plausible. The jump packs and spiderman grapples make me cringe. Its not that you couldn't build it, its that the idea of carrying around that many volatiles while people are shooting at you just makes my sphincter pucker. I don't even have to get hit - all my teammates are walking bombs too. Pass.

The 6 Most Lavishly Wasteful Gadgets in CoD: Advanced Warfare

They've got a point about the Variable Grenades.  As a gameplay mechanic it's pretty cool, but for every throw 2/3rds of the grenade is wasted.  What was the point of them installing self guiding rockets into the thing if you're only going to toss it like a regular frag that only marks targets for your HUD?

Call of Duty or Saint's Row ripoff. You decide.

Can we just settle on "awesome" and call it a day?

From Neill Blomkamp, writer/director of District 9 and Elysium, a story that all Supremacy faction players will love:

So, the latest Call of Duty movie/Circus is out.  Kevin Spacey is Kevin Spacey, playing Kevin Spacey.  Also:

Not that I actually played it.  Watched the let's play.  Tongue

Does anyone else wish the Explorer upgraded?

I wish the worker upgraded.  Would be neat to see a supremacy mech version, or an alien-like Harmony version.

And I think it was a idea with real potential.
Given the popularity of apocalypses of all sorts it could have been a break-away hit idea.

True, it is a setting with potential, just that what they were showing wasn't entirely in line with what people want currently.  Sure, apocalypses are popular, but those stories also include some element of rugged survivalism on the part of the humans.  To cut down the entire species to essentially the minerals/vespane gas of a setting... like I said when I first linked it, kind of depressing.

I mean, think about it:  the current "big release" at the moment has humanity dig itself out of an apocalyptic event to launch themselves towards the stars, at which point they build up a grand new civilization with varying visions of what form it would take.
Meanwhile, another game is busy celebrating the "Awsomepocalypse" in various vibrant colors and pretty explosions.

Even pointing towards the two big "horror" games, Evil Within and Alien: Isolation, slightly softens the blow with the chance that your character will be survive what's going on around them, with the added layer that the horror isn't spread everywhere, just you're immediate surroundings.

Valkyria Chronicles coming to PC on Steam

Maybe if enough people download this, they'll bring the other two to PC?  One can hope, at least.  Tongue

Star Citizen's FPS module

Not bad.  My comp won't be able to handle it, but not bad.

The Black Glove isn't going to make their Kickstarter goal, and neither is Human Resources

Can't say I'm too surprised.  The Black Glove, while intriguing, looked too much like a cheap knock-off of Bioshock, which even Bioshock is tired of.

And Human Resources?  Well, while the idea of two overwhelmingly large factions fight over using puny Earthlings as fuel, the fact of the matter is that something like that's probably going to be a niche market.  I think a quote says it best: "We'll be the good guy, we'll be the bad guy.  Just as long as we are the Most Important Guy."

Official Call of DutyŽ: Advanced Warfare Live Action Trailer - "Discover Your Power"

At least it isn't the "There's a soldier in all of us" campaign.

How many of you guys would like to see Civ: BE in LEGO form?

Which would be awesome, though I get the feeling that Mega Bloks would be more likely to pick it up.

...Still kicking myself for missing out on LEGO Alien Conquest.

A problem with Transcendence is it's Event Horizon nature. Once the Mind Flower goes live and we're all WE what happens next?

The worst part about having a hive mind...

John Wick was actually really good. Keanu is spry for a 50 yr old.

There are some nice cameos. Mayhem from Allstate (aka Dean Winters) has a substantial enough role. The cast does a good job and the mooks go down. While John Wick is not quite a Triggerman, he is brutally efficient.

I'd highly recommend seeing the film.

Slight complication: movie seems to be on limited release, so I'm gonna have to travel to see it.  Tongue

In other news, looks like Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be the new Dr. Strange.

On the other side of the comic line, Warner Bros is looking for a female director for Wonder Woman.  Man, they're trying every trick they can think of in order to catch up with Marvel, aren't they?
