Re: This internet is garbage

uBlock Origin is your friend. I can't remember the last time I saw an ad; you can even block the nag screens that show up when sites detect it.

I don't believe for a second that he meant it. He wanted a ban and just tried to say something that would get him one.

I'm not sure that it's possible to review-bomb a website. Where would the reviews be posted? Yelp?

Re: Is this me or is Dave the Video Game Critic not crazy about the 8th gen as a whole?

It is just you. You're the only person on this site, maybe even the only person on the planet, who is so obsessed with the question of whether the current console generation is good or bad. Other people are content to have their own thoughts, but you will not rest until your misgivings about the sta...

The C64 only has 16 colors to work with. Anything involving a desert is going to look pretty similar.

Re: 2019/11/6: 3DO: Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller

William Gibson is the Godfather of the genre. Let's ask him what he thought of the movie. Good to know that it inspired cyberpunk's visual tropes, which is literally the first thing that I posted here. I'm not sure that you actually followed me. Of course cyberpunk is anti-establishment. But if bei...

Re: 2019/11/6: 3DO: Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller

That's a fair point, but isn't computer technology what makes those androids possible? And you can't get the clear multimedia experience of those cities without some computers behind the scenes. Anything with a screen or a robot (which the Replicants aren't anyway) is cyberpunk now? I didn't bring ...

Re: 2019/11/6: 3DO: Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller

I'd count it. "Cyber-" is more than just cyborg enhancement and the internet. That standard would include most science fiction and a lot more. If Blade Runner is cyberpunk because it involves "communication and control processes", why wouldn't Star Wars be cyberpunk? Heck, why n...

Re: Lord of the Rings Extended vs Theatrical?

Neither. The version to watch is the unfinished Ralph Bakshi cartoon from 1978. (I'm not even entirely kidding here. The Peter Jackson movies are obviously much better films, but they have none of the book's murky mystery, its poetry and myth. Everything is very clear-cut, open, and objective, while...
