It's an early concept, I hope they'll rework it some. It looks more like a Klingon ship than Federation design.

That said, the content of the show will be much more important. I hope they'll follow the way of DS9 and the third season of Enterprise with good overarching storylines. Both shows still managed to have great philosophical and ethical commentary in those arcs, so don't tell me it wouldn't be Trek ;)

Your hopes and expectations for the new show?

New movie also launched these days. I plan on going to see it, but I dunno when. Reviews I've seen are all over the place from positive to complete garbage. If anyone has seen it already, please keep it spoiler-free, thanks.

What would you compare people who get hyped again over a franchise that failed to meet expectations over and over to? Stephen Hawkins? Homer Simpson is not a real person. He is a cartoon character. That scene is hyperbolic commentary on repeating human behaviour. I'm sorry you don't appreciate the Simpsons.

If I HAD posted a gif instead of writing it out people would have understood it as a joke. I actually searched for a pic of the scene, couldn't find one.

"Tolerance" lmao.

You can have any opinion you want. I don't really care if you find watching paint dry to be the most amazing thing on the planet. But this is a discussion board. If you post an opinion, expect people to comment on it. If that causes you social anxiety, I'd suggest keeping your opinions to yourself. If I write that game xyz is bad for some reason that is my opinion about the game. If you consider that a personal attack, that is your problem. It's sad that people get so invested in franchises and mascots that they take it personal how much other people approve of them.

Or is the old hat that people can't understand that anything posted on a board is a personal opinion and not a statement of absolute truth, even if not every single statement is followed by "in my opinion"?

Just because it's not brown and full of blood and mud doesn't mean it's not a good game Kaio.

Wow, and this has what to do with what I wrote?

That like 18 of the last 20 Sonic games were complete garbage has nothing to do with their genre or their color palette. This is desperation right there.

Remember that scene from Simpsons where Homer touches the hot stove repeatedly because he doesn't learn from getting burned? That's people still caring about Sonic.

The only thing it can be if it's actually from the computer is if a loose cable got into a fan.

I find that more and more metal and rock musicians don't even bother anymore with labels and just self-produce and put their stuff on bandcamp, often even with a "pay what you want" approach. I think if you expect to "make it big" in music these days you've probably already failed anyway. The only way to make it big is to regurgitate shit. There is like a single band every few years that gets mainstream appeal and doesn't make shit music (IMO).

-Iron Savior, as Sci-Fi concept albums were never safe in any way let alone Space Opera.  Though this and Conception were side projects of Gamma Ray.

Iron Saviour was actually the name of Kai Hansen's band during his school days so it even predates Helloween. And I really dunno if I'd call it a side project, though Kai did help with the first album. They certainly aren't today anymore :) (And they are awesome)

There is no market that wants to buy NES games en masse. It only seems that way to you because you move in the circle of 100 people that would. The thing contains probably all the games an average customer would care for. There is no need for it to be expandable or other fancy enhancements.

Is this a joke? Yea I could do that but you're kindof missing the point. NES doesn't push HD graphics. Only the Kevtris/GameTechUS expantion port pushes this.

A big screen is bigger but it isn't big screen or in HD.

 :crazy: :woot!: :banghead:

What? I could play NES games on my 4K TV from my computer right now with no additional hardware gimmicks. With way more upscaling options than that NES mod.

Beat Banner Saga 2. The ending was very bafflingly rushed, but everything else about the game is pitch perfect.

The Crimean voted to leave Ukraine and join Russia.

They voted while Russian soldiers with automatic rifles in their hands stood next to the vooting booths. Yeah right, by the will of the people  ::)

People might buy it and just put a Raspberry Pi in the case.

And then play PSX games from it  :D

PoP and SC are both classics :P

There was a time when Ubisoft really couldn't do wrong. Practically every game they made was a hit. Then they started outsourcing development to China so they could have multiple teams crank out sequels once a year for each franchise and things became stale and formulaic to the extreme. Those games are from their "golden age" though before that.

It's right there on the page  :P
2Ghz, 2GB RAM and a DX9 compatible GPU. That's pretty much any 10 year old PC. The game is in 2D and isn't made with Unity, so it should probably run fine on just about anything. (There is even a smartphone version)

GOG has it DRM free. You can just store the installer on a flash drive or burn it to a CD Bluray if you want and play it whenever you want without internet.

I woudnt say that i regard the staff here as my enemy, but i have watched some threads get locked due to seemingly small "triggers". Certain things, no matter how civilly put, seem to cause massive problems to certain mods.

Just to point one thing out since a lot of people don't realize this, the forum mods have very little to do with the site staff that processes submissions. The teams are for the most part completely different (though there is two member overlap since so few people are even willing to do either job). This is btw also why it might seem at times that staff approves things very inconsistantly. There are simply different people and some might make a judgement call on one thing and then it only later shows that the general consensus swings otherwise. There simply aren't enough ressources to have a multiple eyes approval process going. Hence why there is the option to flag submissions afterwards and get them cleaned up when the public had the opportunity to play and can comment on specifics of a hack.

In an ideal world there'd be enough staff members with enough free time so that several people playtest a hack for a while and then discuss on whether to approve or not. Unfortunately the reality is that one staff member reading the description will have to suffice for the most part. And even then things can pile up in the queue for several days before someone gets to them. It sucks but it's what we have made work for the last 10 (!) years. Let's not tear it all down over interpersonal drama.

Speaking of Fire Emblem, I'm currently playing Banner Saga 2 and it's a very similiar game but from a decidedly western standpoint and oh boy is it simply superior in any conceivable way. Compared to it FE is like children banging on tin cans.

Cleared Zero Time Dilemma. Conclusion to the trilogy that started with 999 and Virtue's Last Reward (I don't think the naming scheme helped sales).
Not sure much needs to be said about this. If you haven't played 999 and VLR, go play them right now. If you have, you'll play ZTD anyway. It fulfills the expectations.

Beware though, the 3DS version is supposedly pretty bad. I played it on Vita which was great. This time there is also a PC version apparently (and 999 will get one soon, so don't panic if you already threw away your DS!).
