Re: Star Wars Armada

It's a lot slower. A game of X-Wing can take 30-60 minutes, but a game of Armada is easily 90-120. Armada is also a lot less about anticipation and mind reading. There is still an aspect of programming in commands, but it's more for min-maxing as opposed to blowing or winning the game. Movement in A...

Re: Star Wars Armada

I actually just caught up on the releases for that game.

I love it.

But I haven't had a chance to play in forever.

Re: BLM retards want to ban grand juries

From the moment they hijacked the Bernie Sanders rally, screaming and shouting like a bunch of thugs, threatening to "shut it down" if they weren't allowed to scream at the audience about how racist they are, I've had no respect for BLM. These campus occupations haven't improved my opinion any.

Re: I have seen new star wars (spoilers)

Well, I just saw it for the second time with a bunch of other nerds from life and stuff.

Just as good the second time. I still think this is a Star Wars film that can go the distance with repeated viewings.

Re: I have seen new star wars (spoilers)

I think Razorfist is off the mark on this one. I'm especially annoyed at the forced comparisons between the romantic dialog. Is it as poorly written? Possibly when viewed in a vacuum. However, in Force Awakens, it's acted better, framed better, and mercifully brief compared to the "love" scenes in t...

Re: I have seen new star wars (spoilers)

For example, I loved the scene where Han just goes "How do we blow it up? You can always blow it up." Because it pokes the forth wall slightly, and also makes him come off as a bit senile. I loved the holochess reference, because it helps establish the world just a well as in A New Hope, but it was ...

You know, thinking about that force mind control scene, it's even worse than I thought. Because I'm not sure Rey even has a basis to know that's a thing. She never saw Kylo Ren do it. I don't think we even saw Kyle Ren do it. We saw him read minds but that's about it. So how the delay does she know ...

Re: I have seen new star wars (spoilers)

During the entire scene where she's trying to mind control the guard, I was hoping they'd turn the trope on it's head and just have it flat out not work. And they almost did. Then they pussied out. Very disappointing. But as for the rest, I thought they had compelling enough reasons for her to be go...

I would kill a baby for a new Mechwarrior game.

I've been playing so much Mechwarrior lately. And the only conclusion I can reach is that we need a new one badly. Mechwarrior 2 is buggy as shit, and as the missions get more and more ambitious through the expansions, they break more and more often as they hit the limits of the engine. My favorite ...

Re: Yeah, these guys might just about sum up StarCraft II's plot

I guess Blizzard realized they missed their chance to plagiarize Dark Eldar when they were actually creative with the Dark Templar. So they created an even DARKER Templar and had them be blatant plagiarized versions of Dark Eldar.

It's all just gotten very sad.

Re: Black Friday brawl videos are how rich people shame the poor

Awe man, they had to go and tie race into it too, citing a demographic of non-white single mothers.

Now it literally is Black Friday!

Also, reminds me of the joke "Once you go black you're a single mother."
