I thought this first episode this season was OK. Man, I miss the writing and stories of the David Tennant run. The Impossible Planet and Love and Monsters were some high points of the rebooted series. The 2006 and 2007 seasons were the best and nothing else has come close. For me, Doctor Who has always been about going on a Sci-Fi adventure. About being dragged along by the Doctor meeting equal doses of wonder and horror. Being brow beaten the last 2 series about the power of the human spirit is not what I am looking for. As a moral pillar of the show OK, as the driving force, no thanks.

The positive thing I took from this first episode was that at some point the Doctor basically says he is not one for hugs. Matt Smith spent more time hugging and fondling people than an 85 year old grandmother on ecstasy. I prefer a Doctor that can be loved or feared like David Tennant's or Tom Baker's Doctor. At least that looks to be in place.

Am I really in the minority as someone who hated the David Tennant run?! I prefer the long form arcs of Moffat I preferred the oldey world vibe whilst being young that Matt Smith brought David Tennant was too much and none of Davies attempts at arcs never felt fully realized and Doctor Who should never tell his companions they love them which he essentially never did!!!

I didn't hate Tennants run, but the writing during his time is vastly inferior to Moffat's take on the Doctor. Tennant himself was great, but a lot of the flaws people point out with Moffat were present during Russell's run as well. I frankly find it a bit hypocritical at times.

Yep it's true...people hate the arcs of the Moffat era but I challenge anyone to go back and watch the last two epsiodes of Eccleston's run and deny it's an absolute mess....it's impossible.

I can't see it as mouth at all the way it sticks out has always been a tongue to me, time to bend my mind to a new way of thinking.

I had all sorts of problems with 8.1 originally, random blue screens, video drivers not being compatible and I ended up with a damaged motherboard not sure if it's associated but something wasn't running right for a long time. Other than that there is nothing wrong with it for my purposes.

(First off, I'd like to say that I'm sorry if I'm breaking any forum rules. I've seen people give away keys before but you can never be too sure!)

I used to be a pretty active Steam key trader, it got me from the measly 15 games on my Steam account to about 500+ in about a year. I stopped a while ago but I still buy bundles frequently and end up with tons of extra Steam keys for games I already own and no one to really give them to. So what I'm going to try to do is give away all these extra keys to you duders!

There's a really big list of games I currently have to give away on my steam profile, I'd say I currently have about 60+ games to give away (including multiple copies of games). I also acquired some new games today! Including: Nosgoth, 99 Spirits, Ballpoint Universe: Infinite, Unholy Heights, Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae, PixelJunk Shooter & One Way Heroics. If you would like a game send me a message on steam or reply in this thread! I'll try to keep this thread up to date as I acquire more games.

Hey I'd love Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe if it's still available! I used to play it on my Amiga had no idea there was even a PC version!

You're not wrong about being worried. I think GameSpot saw how Polygon is slowly becoming Kotaku 2 (Ko-two-ku?)

How so? I stopped visiting polygon a long time ago.

I now own 7 games in my Origin library and the only one I paid for is Dead Space 3 that was part of Humble Bundle....I know who is up on the deal here....(hint it's not EA)

I had to click Terminator 2...but I will say Terminator 1 is a close second and it's great to see Sarah Connor Chronicles beating both Terminator 3 and Salvation.

Terminator 3 is an odd one in terms of a sheer action movie yes it has it's moments and that's what Dan loves. However in terms of the mythology it absolutely screws things over...I hate how Judgement Day is inevitable and that the Terminator tricks John in order for him to survive I mean it's a cool idea that the same Terminator who killed him in the future is sent back to ensure he survives, but I hate how that completely overrides "no fate but what we make", ultimately John loses control of his fate at the hand of the machines.

Yup agreed very off putting to someone who has no interest in Wrestling and almost becomes a barrier to enjoyment when it goes on for too long.
