    Screw the younger audience. I'm hyped for this movie. But I have a bad feeling that the movie won't do that good in the theaters because its got me thinking about the remade Judge Dredd. It wasn't a family movie or had a younger audience appeal either.

    I'm impressed that in the future everyone will still be driving muscle cars before the 1980s happened. I'll be seeing this movie based on the cars alone. Still I kind of doubt this will appeal to a younger generation because the cars don't reflect a more present day.

    A sequel already? I know its probably part of Marvel's continuity but couldn't they have waited until after the first proved itself. That way they could've at least gone back & considered a different space movie. Like the Starjammers. Well assuming Fox doesn't hold Corsair aka, Christopher Summers, hostage.

    I can't believe that trailer misused Bad Moon Rising by trying to make it gritty.

    I haven't played the original X-Com games. I did however use them as a defense due to an over generalization that old & forgotten games shouldn't get sequels. Well if I remember correctly.
     

    DNF still sucks though. Especially when compared to DN3D.

    Spec Ops: The Line was a great game, and a total mindf*ck at the end.

    This. Bungie stayed professional about losing all the rights to the IP they created. They parted ways without being nasty publicly. But if you read the articles at that time, everyone could see they got screwed hard. Sony swooped in, embraced them and it has paid off. It was a golden opportunity to finally have access to the company that revolutionized FPS. Bungie even had part in PS4's controller design, which means they were given unprecedented access to Sony's stuff in regards to next gen. Bungie felt the love and is returning it while Xbox One and 360 is just a cash cow for them as of right now.
     
    It reminds me of Nintendo and Rare back in the 90s. I understand why MS did what they did... but they didn't go about doing it the right way. They were mad that Bungie wanted to go 3rd party, so they intentionally tried to hurt them. The fans have to suffer, but they should be blaming MS, not Bungie... they're too caught up in the fanboyism of it all.

    This is definitely one of those times where brand loyalty causes blindness. Halo Fans aren't getting screwed over. Certain Halo Fans stupidity to only own gaming devices from only one particular company is just bad decision making on their part.

    F'in whiners. I hope they realize that outside of the money Sony threw at Activision to get the special treatment for Destiny that Bungie is probably doing this as a slam in Microsoft's face for the way they treated them during their time developing Halo for them. Honestly MS screwed Bungie by taking the rights to Halo as part of the deal for them to leave but Destiny is already a much better game then Halo ever was (don't get me wrong I love the Halo series but honestly giving the game to 343 was, imo, the worst thing they could of done for the series) and I'm happy Sony is get preferential treatment with it. Make me even happier that I bought a PS4.

    I still wish that Warner Brothers bought Volition.... Think of all the Batmobiles they could've put in Saints Row....
     
    Everything Nintendo does with its current IPs excites me until I realize they're still trying to force that touch screen on the consumer.
     
    I could also imagine Kratos in DMC. Or The Last Of Us in Resident Evil or Dead Rising. Sly Cooper, Ratchet, etcetera could barely blend in with Viewtiful Joe.
     
    MS still feels like the obvious since Xbox got its fame by buying Halo.

    I tested two games tonight, Borderlands and The Walking Dead.. and Steam In-Home Streaming works. I was logged into my steam account on both machines at the same time. Once two systems are logged in at once, the Play and Install Game links change so there is a drop down for both options. You can select any game, click the drop down and choose to install or play / stream any game from either machine. So I picked Borderlands to try first and set it to stream from my new desktop. It loaded up fine but I had to change all the video settings because it has never been played on that PC before. I set everything to max graphics, something my laptop has not been able to do for this game, and started playing BL on my laptop in maxed settings. It worked flawlessly. I only played for a few minutes, but my laptop's fan didn't even kick on like it normally would for that game. It was definitely running off the other computer because I've tried these settings on my laptop before and it was unplayable do to how horribly laggy it became. But with the in-home streaming, it wasn't an issue at all. I seemed to have some issues with the Walking Dead. It lagged out on me once and a second time it kicked me from the game. But I think it was because the desktop was going into sleep mode. I'll have to test that again later.
     
    I'm now very interested in getting a Steam Machine.. but not some powerful one, no.. I want the lowest end steam machine that comes with a controller. As long as I can stream from my main desktop, I'll have no problem playing every game on my steam account and I won't be limited to what can only run on Steam OS. I wonder if some company will make a HDMI dongle steam machine made strictly for streaming from another computer over wifi. I'd buy it.

    II finally watched Godzilla 2014 & it is awesome.
     


     
    Beyond that Godzilla 1998 is still my favorite Godzilla since I find her hot. And no its not he as men don't produce eggs. Something fiction writers fail to comprehend about Science.

    Bad News as my SR4 hypothesis was wrong.
    The good news is I still don't have the urge to buy SR4 DLC until Volition moves onto SR5 without making a SR4 With DLC Included or PSN is removed from PS3.

    If SR4 is free, I'll definitely play it.
     
    I love Dust.. I understand the compulsion to grind it. I got 100% in every area on the map.

    Since no one has posted about May's PS Plus Collection yet.
     
    http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/04/24/preview-mays-instant-game-collection/
     
    Here's hoping next month's PS Plus collection is huge. And also proves my hypothesis right if SR4 becomes free next month. For those of you that don't know (or remember since I've stated this before) SR2 was on PS Plus during E3 2012 & SR3 was on PS Plus during E3 2013.
     
    Coincidentally this month's Games With Gold on Xbox 360 will be giving away SR3 in the later half. For me that means I will now own SR3 5 times. PS3 SR3, PS3 SR3 Full Package, PS3 SR3 PS Plus, PC SR3, Xbox 360 SR3 GWG.
     
    Currently though GWG is giving away Dust: An Elysium Tale. Since that's an RPG I got myself more addicted to grinding than finishing the game.... So someday I'll finish it.

    I wonder what happened to Ryu & Ken. Even though you probably don't know either.

    That reminds me of an older dream I had where I didn't remember why I was killing cops, but I had lightning powers similar to what was in Infamous. I was at the library of a former hometown near the entrance gladly killing cops outside. My electric powers eventually & instantly ran out. I was then approached by my sister who came from the backdoor about having to go to my court trial. So I go only to find out I still have to wait for my court case to be heard behind all of these domestic disputes. I even ask why isn't my trial happening right now or even national news. I am then told its a busy day & I have to wait for my trial. So while waiting I tried to get my lightning powers back. It didn't happen as I ended up waking up.

    Part of me is excited yet terrified of this Bundle. That comes from back in my N64 years of the 1990's. Back before I had Internet or (fully) acknowledged the ESRB. A time where I refused to own kiddie games. (Not counting LoZ since I didn't really acknowledge the ESRB.) My Teen years. Back then all my games had to define me as a "Bad Ass"....
     
    And then I got Shadow Man. Shadow Man then made me more afraid of Dead Side than Hell. Everything in Dead Side is miserable that by the time I reached Hellfire & Brimstone area that actually seemed more positive. Unfortunately I never beat this game as I got lost in whatever I was suppose to do. But after enough time in Dead Side....
     
    I bought Harvest Moon 64. Another game that became one of my favorites. But that's a whole different topic.
