    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?
    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.
    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. 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. 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
    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.

    I bet Lauren Cohan got a taste of that sweet big screen payday and decided screw TWD since they aren't paying her as much as Lincoln anyways.

    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.

    I just watched a quick video of GW1 roller beetle racing. I don't remember ever playing that race. I can definitely see the resemblance to the new mounts tho.

    I'm so hyped for that new mount! It looks freakin awesome!!!!!!

    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.

    I don't think that's the original Voice Acting as they have changed how the stories were in the original.
    They also changed Claire Redfield's original outfit. I'm going miss her Black Boxer Briefs under Red Daisy Dukes Shorts outfit she had.
    And I don't like the whole flashlight & boarding up windows mechanics.

    Worst campaign in COD history... "imagine yourself in a frozen forest"... remember that when you're playing.

    Now that you said that, you'll be in the middle of moving when it comes out.

    Not loot boxes. Skins and vanity items will be for sale as direct purchases. Everything can be soloed, but will be a little harder. Actual gameplay starts at around 13:13

    No timed exclusive release despite being on the xbox conference. They literally have no 1st party support and have to use 3rd party games as a front.

    In all seriousness though I'm glad we're back to the main storyline. I liked NF, but it didn't have the same feel. And I do hope to see Kenny. I couldn't turn my back on him after all we've been through, he was all that was left of the original group. Hopefully this is the last game period of this storyline. If Clem dies, they don't need a game about AJ. I'd rather see a game about Morgan and what he did between disappearing between Atlanta and Alexandria, or have a whole untold stories anthology set like how Negan became the leader of the Saviors, How the Governor became what he was. With the show at its last breath, I'll miss it and I'd like to see things like this carry on. Hell I'd like a game about what Kenny was doing between falling through the roof until he met back up with Clem.

    If they would have made a base model that only had the original games and 2 updated joysticks. I would have been sold. Even at $100 I would have bought it because I could share it with my parents. They use to play tanks and asteroids. After Super Mario Bros. 3, it got too complicated for them.   With wireless joysticks they could play from their recliners. Seeing as this is a gofundme type deal, big developers aren't going to be porting Battlefield and COD to this. The market has become a stagnate system of Sony and MS delivering the big games and Nintendo doing its own thing with a strong first party IP. If you didn't get in the game after PS2/Xbox, you probably never will, thats when gaming became such a massive media market. Only Google could probably enter the fray with their own system. Or Amazon, but they haven't even made their first big IP yet from their gaming studio... I could see them tying in a prime membership with its online service which would bring people to it.

    ROTFLMAO!  I guess I'll lose.

    This show will be dead soon after. Daryl isn't fit to be the lead without an unbelievably dramatic change of character. I figured Negan would eventually become a leader again with a change of heart on how to do things while still keeping his brutal edge against foes. With Maggie leaving too, it just damages the show too much. There are zero strong female leads left, and Tara is unbearable.. I would have rather had her die off over Sasha. Rosita would have to be developed more. Michonne is bad ass but to me she isn't leader material either. Its a shame that Rick and Maggie will die off but that stupid baby lived all this time. Apparently there is rumors that Glenn had a twin brother and they could bring Steven Yuen back to play him. It would be interesting, but depending on how it was handled it could go terribly wrong.
