Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

Well I took that scene in the context of the entire movie. A movie that had goodie two shoes Luke Skywalker turn out to be fallible. A movie that showed a scene play out a different way in two people’s eyes (Ren didn’t lie about what happened between him and Luke, that’s how he remembers it). Taken...

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

And I do think that this moral compromise would have been a good thrust to the scene and might have even made me appreciate the stuff leading up to it more, but the way the whole thing is played is just bad. DJ couldn't be more wrong about what that X-wing means, but Rose's response seems to mean I'...

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

Okay but that’s 100% not the commentary it’s making. It’s what the character says, and then it’s revealed that the so called evil people funding the enemy ships are actually funding both sides of the war. The entire point is that things aren’t black and white, which is the movie presenting that not...

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

I'm more likely to trust critics when they say a movie's bad than when they like it. Time after time, I see Tomatometer scores skew high because a movie plays to critics' political sensibilities, regardless of other elements or even how well it executes that element (look at Zootopia , which got rav...

That is unbelievable. At 1080p in fullscreen, you can see the pins!

I got that; I was just explaining why that's not a good way to conceptualize it, which I thought was a fair point to make in a relatively technical discussion. Didn't mean any offense.

Re: Review Wish List

The 2600 version of Fathom has a review, but the REAL version on the ColecoVision doesn't. This is a problem.

Re: Playing PS1 games on the PS2?

So my current PS2 is one with the one with the modem - a later model of the front loader. So my question is, does this model have hardware emulation of PS1 or software emulation? Obviously hardware is preferable. Emulation is software. PS1 hardware is PS1 hardware, not emulation. That hardware is b...

Re: How to play Dark Souls

This thread has obviously generated a lot of interest and is much-needed. My question is, what does it say about a game that requires a thread like this? Is it a knock against the design of the game? Or maybe the lack of a manual? It's not a knock against anything. Different games require different...
