Re: The Room (Best movie ever)

It's pretty great. One of those movies that can't wear out its welcome, no matter how (in)famous it gets. If you like The Room , I strongly recommend checking out A Talking Cat!? and Fateful Findings (or any other Neil Breen movie). I wish I had the time to seek out more weird, no-budget insanity li...

Re: Can video games be adapted into good movies

A major part of the problem is that video game adaptations tend to be in genres that are often hacky anyway. Non-Asian martial arts movies. Horror movies. Monster movies. Add to that the further hackiness endemic to licensed properties, and it's no wonder that you end up with garbage like Alone in t...

Re: New Tomb Raider Movie!

Update: The recently released RAMPAGE 2018 movie is not great, but strangely is said to be a better movie then Tomb Raider 2018!: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/rampage_2018/ Not necessarily. Setting aside that there will be many more reviews after it's released tomorrow, while Rampage has a high...

Re: Does this suck?

This is interesting but not consistently successful, and there are serious issues with it overall. I hope that my enthusiasm for some of your past writing shows that I'm coming purely from a place of good faith. The biggest and most generalized problem is how the world of the story is approached. I ...

Probably not too well, if Roller Coaster Tycoon World is any indication. It's just a brand; the actual people that made the games good are working on their own now, and good for them.

Re: switch version of Roller-coaster tycoon

Does anyone actually buy roller coaster tycoon games? It doesn't seem like all that interesting of a premise to me personally. The original series was a huge hit, and Planet Coaster - made by the same developers as Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 - has been a strong seller. The latest official Roller Coast...

Re: switch version of Roller-coaster tycoon

They don't need a million dollars. For one, the listed goal is actually "$10K - $1.07M" (I'm not sure that this really counts as a "goal"), and for another, the FAQ says, "The game will be developed regardless of the success of the StartEngine campaign." What they've ac...

Re: Sea of Thieves

These extended, profanity laden rants are such a phenomenal waste of internet bandwidth in my opinion. It contains no information that an educated gamer (like just about everyone here) can find elsewhere. Can someone explain the appeal of a rant like this? Is the swearing a means to gain viewers? I...

Re: Wii: Goldeneye, Mario Kart Wii

Nothing was "removed" or "rolled back" from Mario Kart 7 to Mario Kart Wii - the Wii game was released three years earlier. As for the actual successor to Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8 doubles down on the things that you dislike about the 3DS game.
