Re: Abrams to direct next Star Wars

What is the expression... "cautiously optimistic?" That's me on this one. I know people complained about Star Trek altering the canon, and how that made the whole universe messy, but it was a fun movie... which is the point of movies. As for Star Wars, he's somebody who grew up loving the original t...

Re: Daryl Gates in "Gangster Squad"

You know, Tawmis, I was thinking that the screenshot I posted was indeed his cameo... but I now believe that it isn't. You get called into Lieutenant Block's office, not the chief. But according to Daryl Gates' Wikipedia page, he has a cameo as the Chief of Police on " one of the top floors of the P...

Daryl Gates in "Gangster Squad"

My wife and I saw Gangster Squad over the weekend. (The movie was just okay... worth a rental at most.) One of the officers mentioned in the movie was DARYL GATES (who of course is a very famous LA cop) ... but I couldn't help but think about PQ4!

This is Daryl's famous cameo.

Re: Police Quest 3 CDROM?

Sonny Bonds is one Sierra legend who never had a voice counterpart. Whom would he sound like, do you think? I think a great fit would be Larry Wilcox (Officer Jon Baker, from "CHiPs"), but mainly because their characters were pretty similar in personality.

Re: So... (Slightly-Hobbit-related rant)

The theaters here (and I'm assuming there, as well) have to send 98% of the ticket revenue to Hollywood, or practically everything; leaving only the concessions to cover the cost of labor, equipment, utilities, tax, etc. It's sad that the system is set up that way, but that's why you get gouged at t...

I never played the "Deluxe" edition. Quite an upgrade from the original!

Re: What killed Sierra

Interesting! So what do we know about Activision's strategy w/r/t the Sierra IP? Have they made any statements whatsoever about their plans?

Re: What killed Sierra

I'm with y'all - why would they try to bring down the company out of spite, and then bury its IP? I don't buy it. I don't think $1.5b were spent just to make Sierra "go away". It's just another bad corporate acquisition to add to a long list of bad corporate acquisitions. That said, I do wish Activi...
