Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

OzGamer - I'm with you bro! Plus episode one had the most bad-ass villain ever: Darth Maul. I wish he survived. When he first fell down the shaft I was like "he'll be back" and then I saw him split in two and I was like "nope - he's done" In the new Disney canon, Maul did surviv...

Re: 1982: A Christmas to Remember

Thanks for sharing. Absolutely terrific story. My best "video game" Christmas was when I got the C-64 disk drive (the year before I got the counsel) which of course increased my C-64 game library exponentially. The game I got on that Christmas was F-15 Strike Eagle and I played it for hou...

Re: First Generation Gaming

I've never played the original Odyssey but it looks like 99.9% of its appeal was the novelty of manipulating objects on a TV screen. The light gun/rifle looks pretty neat though. The gun games could be amusing for a bit. Many of the later Pong machines have 2 forms of shoot the dot lightgun games. ...

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

I enjoy a nice Star Wars discussion, so thanks for not ripping into me for having what seems to be a minority opinion. On the Mary Sue discussion, an issue might be that TFA is a callback to both ANH and ESB. In particular, we get both the mentor deaths, but also the first battles of young hero and ...

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

6) The Force Awakens - A plot that is so unoriginal its basically a reboot with a Mary Sue heroine and a silly Super Sized Death Star that can now kill from a huge distance! Although I respect your opinion, I think a lot of folks who referred to Rey as a “Mary Sue” will eat their words when we find...

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

I will give it a go as well, worst to first, counting down from 10 to 1. 10) The Phantom Menace - Pointless plot, but the CGI robots were neat. Unfortunately, they were rendered into complete incompetents, which tainted the entire prequel trilogy. None of them were a threat. Llam Neeson was great, D...

Re: IMDb closing their forums

IMDb is now closing down its 'Character' pages. For instance, if you searched for "Han Solo" before, you got a wealth of information, including places the character has appeared you might never thought about, like A Lego Star Wars television series, various video games, videos like "h...

Re: Photos of old arcade games

And a few more photos of Time-Out. This was a chain of mall arcades, so there are lots of photos of various locations out there. I think for a time the chain was owned by Sega. One the last photo, those pieces of paper clipped to the top of Stargate are likely high scores, by whom, and when records....
