  1. I liked it, but I never asked for or wanted this movie. And now that it bombed they put Kenobi on hold. The movie everyone actually wants. It kills me Hollywood is like "you have to watch these movies to get the one you want". -_-;


  2. I don't blame her either. I hope she goes on to be in a lot of movies. She is a great actor. Honestly cable networks need to get a grip on the schedules. If they'd allow actors more freedom to work on multiple projects, they probably wouldn't have such an issue with keeping cast... remember back in the 90s when they'd just get a completely different actor and pretended like nothing happened? XD

    For the longest time you were either considered a TV actor or a movie actor. TV was your stepping stone a lot of the times, but with the movie business not being what it use to be, and streaming services upping the ante on quality programming, I think that line has become blurred significantly. There is no reason someone can't do movies while on a show. I get the whole exclusivity to a single show while its running, but I think you could keep actors more content if they were allowed to obtain multiple income sources from extra projects. I bet it would severely cut down on contract disputes when performers aren't limited to one pipeline of bread and butter, and on the flip side it might save some smaller studios money. Bigger actors may be more inclined to take a role with lesser knowns giving those companies a boost perhaps? Pure speculation as I'm not very knowledgeable about the acting industry.  But with all the petty actor and writer guild strikes over the years, they all seem to take place while the industry is at a high point with several successful properties running.

    As for TWD actors not being in anything else, some find other work or will.. maybe not in the most notable ways.

    Lennie James does voice work for Destiny, he was in the last Blade Runner film, but before that he was briefly in the terrible 1998 Lost in Space movie. XD

    Norman Reedus was undoubtedly the most established actor when the series started having been in Blade II, Boondock Saints, and Pandorum. He'll have no problem finding work after, and hes already in Death Stranding as the main character.

    Laruen Cohen was practically unknown, only doing soap opera cameos, and TV show guest appearances. Oddly enough she was the Stranger in Destiny 1. XD Now I want to meet her at a Con and ask her about all the lines she had that never made it in to the game.

    We'll probably won't see Andrew Lincoln for years if ever. I think he's made his money and wants to spend the rest of the time with the family. He'll probably do commercials and con appearances.

    Melissa McBride is another great actor, I think she might pick up a role or two, but shes def one of the older actors. Her first work was Matlock and Heat of the Night. XD She did some Walker Texas Ranger, and I'm going to have to find that TNT movie Pirates of Silicon Valley.. I loved that film, and didn't know she was in it.

    Danai Gurira already has a spot in the MCU, I know she'll find work, shes done very little before TWD, but I think she's got a bright future and this will be looked back on as her breakout role.

    Steven Yeun probably won't go on to do anything big in psychical acting, but he is well established in voice work. He's done American Dad, Trollhunters, and Voltron.

    Seth Gilliam previously did work on The Wire, Oz, Starship Troopers, and The Cosby show, He has 3 projects listed on IMDB already. He'll always be a side character, but will always probably have work because he is good at what he does.

    Josh McDermitt and Christian Serratos will probably wont be in much else outside of cameos.

    JDM obviously will always have work and is the most established to come on the show since Norman Reedus. Hes just a solid actor and has the look of a big star. He was in Ramapge XD

    Steven Ogg will always be typecast as a perpetual shitbag, because damn, he is good at it. His work as Simon was excellent, he's also a host in Westworld and was Trevor in GTA V. 

    Obviously Jon Bernthol found his role as the Punisher. I can see him picking up a few more lead roles here and there.

    David Morrissey is an outstanding actor but will probably always be on British TV only.

    Michael Rooker is always going to have work because of his unique voice. Whether it be voice acting, or a villain role. He was great in Guardians of the Galaxy.

    But all those other characters like T-Dog, we'll never see them again. Emily Kinney does her music thing, and I wont be sad if we never see Chandler Riggs ever again.

  3. These were terrible trailers TBH. I was actually pretty impressed by this one. I liked it better than the first Jurassic World. It had two well fleshed out arcs. I honestly think they need to put the whole thing to an end with JW3. There really isn't much more they can do, and making another dinosaur would just be dumb at this point.

  4. It definitely shifts the advantage back to amazon for the one stop shop. I've bought something elsewhere before to skip out on the tax. I don't know how it is for you, but on some times I still don't get charged tax on amazon. I never really pay attention as to why, but I'll assume its because its a 3rd party seller. Its never anything big, it happens on $10-30 purchases for the most part.


  5. WP said it was from some roller beetle racing from GW1 Nightfall. But in the original the beetle ate you and you rolled around to get power ups like speed boosts... it wouldn't make since to get eaten and regurgitated every time, so I guess the seat is the power boost. XD


  6. I don't think there will be. That new ability with an overheat meter should make some situations easier, and it enhances special weapons too. I bet they'll have different modes of difficulty. People can complain, but after the brutality of MM9 and MM10, I think they've moved to making things more easy for people that want it. Like the rewind system for the collections they came out with. At least the voice acting has come a long way from Mega Man 8. XDXDXD

     


  7. From the jarring janky walking animation, I'd say it requires some skill to parry and strike. It looks like there is some sort of stance system similar to For Honor, but not quite as complex as needing to be in the right guard to defend. Seeing as this is a product from the inFAMOUS devs, I expect to be an OP character that is vulnerable to getting hit. That was the interesting thing about inFAMOUS in how the protagonist was so powerful and could kill people with ease, but if you got hit, you'd die pretty fast from very little damage compared to other games of the genre. The hud was hidden for this demo, so it will be interesting to see how that multiple take down system works when he drops into the shrine.  Since you don't have super powers, it will be interesting to see what the upgrade system will consist of, whether it be move sets, armor, or other abilities and enhancements to those like the multi-takedown. Will we get a bow like the NPC, or are these NPCs with us all the time like a Mass Effect party system where we can upgrade them? I'm looking forward to seeing more.

  8. I just ordered a certain gamecube controller off eBay before they get ridiculous. I have a standard one, but I use to use a micro controller for this game because it felt good in the hands. They're already going for over $100-120 on amazon new. I can't buy a used controller that's nearing two decades old. I got it for probably $20 more than what they were retail back in the day but its better than paying $60-300 when the game comes out.


  9. Even though they remade RE1 for GameCube, I wish they would remake it again with this engine. I never played RE2, so I don't know if the original voice acting is being used in this, but man it sure sounds like it at times. XD Its definitely a downgrade from Leon's VA in RE4. Typical IGN with terrible aim and just being bad at games.


  10.  

    Disagree about the snow. If its dynamic weather, it needs to stay. Sucks for PC players where people can just turn down the graphics, but for console everyone is on equal standing as far as visual impairment. I agree with that medal animation. wtf, It takes up the whole screen.

  11. I guess the best thing about this presentation was actually seeing real gameplay and not a rendered souped up graphical showcase that isn't a real representation of the game. This comes out one month after Anthem. I'll have to decide which game I'll want to take a week off to grind out.
