  1. Stargate

    I love the movie and SG-1 and the roleplaying game campaign that I played in for a bit. When I saw the movie in the theater, the marketing up to that point had been cryptic. Trailers would just show them digging out this ring or whatever and activating it and stepping in, with no material about what would be on the other side, or really what the premise was outside of the gate itself. I feel like that made it more fun. I also love the music and sound design, some of which was drilled deep into my brain because of how extensively it was sampled on the FLA album Hard Wired.

    Oh fuck dude, I love Condemned. That was a hell of a launch title to usher in a new console generation. It kinda jumps the shark, but, you know, video games. They rarely know how to end.
  3. Important If True 8: Ghosts 'n Goblins

    Somebody is making a game wherein you control both the ghost and the goblin

    I enjoyed the original Crysis a lot more once I cheated to make it so I'd never run out of suit energy and have to wait for it to recharge. I was just full on Maximum man all the time, and it was a hoot.
  5. Oh yeah, TNC is the best trek podcast.

    One thing to keep in mind with the CoD series is that from CoD 2 on, consistent 60fps performance and low latency on consoles (primarily Xbox 360) has been a major target. They certainly could have beefed things up for the PC versions, but the sacrifices are understandable if you look at it as a 360 game. It would lose a lot if they dropped it to 30fps, and it really wouldn't play right if they'd gone for some kinda Killzone 2-style "you'll get your frames when we're good and ready" renderer.
  7. Enterprise 3x10 - "Similitude" Dang that was a good episode.

    Cool! Was it annoying to track the boat while it was cruising along? I've been dying to get a drone of some kind for a while.

    I can never get past a point early in the game where you find a plasmid, but you have to ditch another plasmid in order to equip it. I freeze up and just quit the game.

    At least for now, they'll be playing a bunch of smaller games. That could free them up to have more fun, since they won't be worrying about building another epic. Once they settle on what will be the next major campaign... then yeah, they could get psyched out because they feel the pressure to recreate the magic of tres horny boys. But, you know, whatever happens, happens. Maybe we'll get more great #content, and maybe we won't, but they sure sizzled it up this time.

    Yeah, that whole thing of feeling like you have to tie everything up as if it were a planned saga all along when you were just kinda goofing around in the beginning can lead to some weird shit. One of the best/worst examples of this is Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, which tries to treat all the previous material as if it were all real and very serious. Then you're supposed to be getting choked up about this guy grappling with his mortality who a few games ago was sitting on an egg to hatch an owl so he could use the owl's call to distract a guard. edit: speaking of which, I really want to replay MGS4. I wish (Fuck) Konami would do a PS4 version.

    Wow, those look great!
  13. Yeah, although in the early (Roddenberry) days of TNG, they wanted it to depict a future of causal space banging among mature colleagues. Shit was envisioned as super horny.
