I've heard that we'll also get to see a certain future administrator of Cloud City.

While the graphics were a little more cartoony than The Clone Wars, it was still enjoyable. I'm interested in where they take things with the Inquisitor, always good to have something new in the Star Wars universe (that isn't Gungan).

It won't mean much to people outside of NZ, but comedian Ewen Gilmour died last night.

Damnit.

As television moves towards On Demand being the preferred model for many viewers, this sort of thing is only going to become more common. Why get up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons when you can sleep in and watch the same shows a little later (and without the ads, if you're lucky)?

Huh? It's pretty clear from the previews that the main character of the show is C1-10P / Chopper - the sassiest astromech droid in the galaxy. The show's really about his day-to-day struggles as he puts up with an at times barely competent crew of humans and aliens trying to fight the good fight against the evil Empire.

Typical. I finally learn to drive and now self-driving cars are becoming a thing. Gah.

I'd love to hear from any Scots, Scot-ish folk, or whoever has a stake in this.

I don't have a personal stake, my family emigrated from Dunfirmline to Dunedin around 1850. That said, we didn't leave our culture behind, so I'm hoping the Scots turn their backs on the English, bend over, and show them what Scotsmen wear under their kilts. Also, the Scottish pledge to make the country nuclear-free warms my Kiwi heart.

And if the vote does fall on the side of 'better together' it will be interesting to see which concessions, if any, the Scots end up getting.

George Zimmerman's back in the news, but I don't really care. Someone else is welcome to tackle this if they want.

I would, but I don't want to be shot in 'self defense'.

Civilisation: Beyond Earth gets an 80% Steam price hike

Looks like 2K are borrowing from Games Workshop's playbook when it comes to dealing with NZ and Australia.

Even though the situation in Ferguson has calmed down with the removal of the police and SWAT teams, here's something to consider...

Imagine if this had been the initial response to the standoff at the Bundy Ranch.

The best option might be for someone to live tweet the panel, or make notes and post them up later. Video is nice, but this is GenCon, not Comic Con.

And it looks like suicide is the cause - untreated depression.  Cry

Here's the thing, it wasn't untreated. He was in therapy/rehab just a few weeks ago. Sometimes, though, it's just not enough.

Anybody interested in a free (and legit) copy of Wing Commander III?

Wow. Why is that movie not made yet?

Four words...
Wolverine: Origins
Green Lantern

We all want a Ryan Reynolds Deadpool movie, but after the confusing mess of Origins and the failure of Lantern, I don't think anyone's in a hurry to give it a green light.

Nick Fury used to be white.
Falcon could talk to birds.
Alexander Pierce was a good guy.
The Mandarin was not an actor.

Yes, they've changed things in the movies. Some for the better, some not so much. The movies are their own reality (617?) and I'm going to enjoy them for what they are.
