KQ6 - Black Widow Lockup

Hi all, I'm running into a strange glitch that I've never encountered before. Just after pulling the spiderweb thread, taking the parchment, and watching it blow away, my game completely freezes. The cursor is stuck as as a crown, and although I can move it around the screen and access the options m...

Re: LucasArts, RIP (1982-2013)

Very tragic, to say the least. And yet, in a very real sense the LucasArts that we knew and loved back in the '90s died a long time ago. The only truly laudable LucasArts products in recent memory (in my opinion, anyway) were the KOTOR games, and they weren't even developed in-house! Also, DPX, I sh...

Re: Abrams to direct next Star Wars

I think he is a good director, with a good sense of pace, and a strong sense of visuals. However, I don't like him very much as a storyteller, so I'd really like to know how's writing the script.
The screenplay is being written by Michael Arndt (of Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3 fame).

Re: You a SNES fan?

Impressive collection. But still...$25,000.00? For 721 games, that averages out to $34.67 per game! Pretty spendy for technology that's over a decade old...

Re: Go see it now!!!

My thoughts on The Hobbit: I'm a long-time Tolkien fan and am also extremely fond of Peter Jackson's LOTR trilogy; although I have a few major gripes with The Two Towers and Return of the King (namely, the handling of Faramir's character, the reticence of the Ents to go to war, and Frodo and Sam's "...

Re: Go see it now!!!

Changes in and of themselves don't bother me. Film adaptations of books require a certain amount of change in order to translate the material effectively. Obviously, in the LOTR trilogy there are quite a number of changes, from dialogue tweaks to outright chronological alterations. For the most part...

Re: Go see it now!!!

The wife and I are planning to go see it tomorrow. I do have a few concerns about this trilogy, but unlike George Lucas, Peter Jackson has done such a consistently top-notch job on his films that I feel he's earned the benefit of the doubt. So overall, I'm very excited! Will post my reaction after I...

It's about having fun! Not about how good you are!
Or at least, that's what Tawmis's wife tells him. ;)
