Re: Problem with Metacritic

Another movie I'm not planning on seeing but was interested in how The Possession of Hannah Grace was reviewed. Of course, the first thing I see is a metascore of 46 based on 4 critics. So, I check all 4 reviews and each one is 50. How is 46 even a weighted average? I'm not sure how often it happens...

Re: Online Games = Beta

I don't think anything you've outlined would be considered unreasonable. However, I am perhaps part of the minority in thinking that some of these things just have to be accepted or choose not to participate. The part of this argument that I find frustrating is that some people make it sound like it...

Re: New Atari 2600 game Astronomer?

I saw a link for the manual in the link for game posted above http://pietrow.net/files/Astronomer_2600_manual.pdf. Seems pretty straight forward. Press the fire button to aim at stars only, not clouds. Fill up the observation bar.

Re: Madden Tournament Shooting

There are two aspects of this particular incident that I find disturbing as opposed to other recent tragedies. First, while shootings have occurred in public places before (including restaurants), this one just strikes me as being a little more vulnerable to specific targeting. It's hard to put in w...

Re: This is awful what they are doing to the upcomg Spyro remaster for PS4 and Xbox One!

Just a word of caution.....the link within the original post seems to infected with malware. Stupid me for clicking it. I'm not even sure why I clicked on it. It's the same story with a different game

Re: AVGN: Ready 4 Revenge (Blu Ray)

Next I popped the disc in my Xbox One. Trying to figure out how to play a Blu Ray in this machine is an exercise in futility. I don't know who at Microsoft designed the user interface, but I suspect it was a high school workstudy smoking weed during his breaks. I had to give up on this. I don't und...

Re: Jurassic World

I like all the Jurassic Park/World movies and I would agree that The Lost World was the lesser of the group. I also agree that Jurassic Park 3 is greatly underrated however, there is one aspect of that movie that actually fills me with rage. The idea that the husband and wife lied to everyone in ord...

Re: Black Ops 4

I read a very interesting article (Stats Show How Rarely Game Campaigns Are Played) on this topic on TrueAchievements - https://www.trueachievements.com/n32450/exclusive-stats-show-how-rarely-game-campaigns-are-played . While there may be a bit of bias because this is just based on people registered...

Re: The Pinball Arcade (coming early 2012)

I've been playing some of the trials of seasons 3-7 as long as it is an opportunity and noticed something interesting. They are still charging full price ($29.99) for season 7 and many (5 of 11) aren't even released on Xbox One. 4 of those 5 are Williams tables so I'm assuming they won't be released...

Re: Favorite Albums of the 90s

The 90's were my least favorite decade however, there are some gems David Sylvian & Robert Fripp - The First Day. Darshan has some of my favorite guitar playing ever. UFO - Walk on Water. 1990's reunion album from 70's classic line-up utilizing same producer from 70's. Sounds like they never lef...
