Bummer dude. People really shouldn't be punished for circumstances they have no control over. That's asinine. Although I imagine there's some reason for the rule we don't know about.

Weird! Reviving an old brand like that doesn't seem like a very Activisiony thing to do.

BioWare, or EA BioWare at least, is probably at the point where it's happy to do The BioWare Thing for the next however many years. People who are getting new jobs at BioWare are people who want to do The BioWare Thing and make BioWare games. I typically like your bogstandard BioWare game so more of that doesn't sound too bad.

At the same time, this lets Casey Hudson, who is pretty good at the BioWare Thing, do his own Casey Hudson thing. At the same time, I can still get my usual BioWare games on top of this fancy new Casey Hudson game. Maybe it's a win win.

I couldn't have said it better. A lot of people have been unsatisfied with Bioware lately, and maybe getting some new blood at the top will invigorate their stuff. And in addition to that, we get one of the masterminds to go make his own potentially rad game.

Yeah if only so I can keep better track of my GOG games.

There's this 80 year old cowboy that works with me and occasionally he drops N bombs. I deal with it by getting very uncomfortable.

If you ignore the obnoxious bullshit it seems kinda fun I guess.

I talked a bunch of shit about this movie when it was announced, so I'm eating some crow when I say that I enjoyed it. It was like a less serious version of Star Wars, pretty cool. I don't feel like it added a whole lot to their cinematic universe, but personally I prefer it that way. I have to wonder if they'll have a place in the Avengers movie. It would be weird to see Rocket Raccoon fighting alongside Captain America.

This movie actually adds more to the cinematic universe then any of the other films combined. We are introduced to (among other things) the Kree, the Novas and the Celestials. We are also given more details about the infinity gems and Thanos (who is pretty much guaranteed to be the bad guy in Avengers 3).

I suppose "added" was a bad word, what I meant was that it didn't "expand" on a whole lot. They introduced new stuff (like what you mentioned) but the stuff from the other movies was left pretty much alone (unless you count Thanos as a previously introduced element which I don't). There was no Nick Fury, no mention of other heroes, or anything like that. Whereas Iron Man 3 dealt with a lot of The Avengers fallout, and Winter Soldier had a lot to do with SHIELD. It was very much its own thing, which I liked.

Music continues to be the only medium with dumber genre classifications than video games.

While I'm kind of looking forward to this game, I'm not sure how I feel about this Nintendo Direct trend where they focus on one game. It really makes them feel like ads to me. And I guess from a cynical perspective that is what they are, but I guess it just feels more blatant when they focus on a single game? I don't know. Here's hoping there's some cool news.
