I seriously can't even play a game if it has screen tearing. I just turn it off.

Yes. Also people with cosmetic surgery or other extensive body mods. Just a learned response on my part. They are usually not people I want to be around.

Would you judge people who get braces to straighten their crooked teeth? If not, why do you judge those who get nose jobs etc?

If your teeth are crooked enough it can actually be detrimental to your dental health. In that case I have nothing against braces. I only have slightly crooked teeth. I would consider someone to be rather vain if they were getting braces in a situation like mine. I feel the same about nose jobs. But again, if you have a deviated septum, by all means, get that fixed.

I'm actually somewhat more tolerant of steroids than cosmetic surgery, though they'd better know what they're doing or have professional supervision if they're going to screw with their body chemistry like that. Only if they aren't doing it to get ahead in some sort of competition, though. I guess something about it seems marginally more natural than a nose job or a face lift. Body builders aren't getting muscles surgically grafted on, you know? I'm sure plenty of actors have to go on a steroid regimen to bulk up for roles, and I don't fault them for that.

So only for health reasons should anybody do anything? What's wrong with simply wanting to improve your looks and confidence?

Where does it end? Should people not whiten their teeth? Comb their hair? Take showers? Unless, of course, it's detrimental to their health somehow.

You don't have to go under the fuckin' knife to get your hair in order. That's absurd. There are pretty obvious differences between basic hygiene and voluntary, unnecessary medical procedures, and there's a difference between having some self-respect, and being self-obsessed.

Why does the extremity matter? It's still all about looking better. If someone wants to get a nose job to help boost their confidence and improve their quality of life then who am I to judge?

Why does JJ Abrams suddenly have control over everything nerdy?

Because that Star Trek reboot was pretty damn good

Assuming you don't really know/care what "Star Trek" is all about and only want to see it's surface elements skinned over a generic sci-fi action flick.

Bullshit. As someone who has watched all of TNG and most of DS9 I loved 2009's Star Trek and it definitely has some of the core principles of the franchise. The most important part of any story is its emotional core, and for Star Trek that tends to be self-sacrifice and friendship, two things the reboot was full of. Everything else is just the window dressing.

@Branthog: What endings are you even talking about? Has he even been involved in the endings of any of the TV shows he started? He didn't write the endings to any of those shows, and I don't know if he was even still involved at that point. You can't really judge him by his early work, so all you're really left with is MI3 and Super 8 which both had fine endings and Super 8 had a great last scene.

I call bullshit on your bullshit. Star Trek is about exploration and humanity reaching its zenith. Self-sacrifice is as common as water in any movie/TV show that is based around a crew/group of people.

This is ridiculous 5 years is a little too long for them to take especially since its in a location they have already successful made you would think with their success and large income from la noire and red dead they could at least take care putting out their marquee game in a reasonable amount of time, this sounds more like we want to compete with cod and november releases. the major issue i see happening is that this may mean their switch on the fly as you like system is faulty. with the generation coming to a close they might just delay it and bring it out for the new systems hope not. also I dont like Alex telling us to shut up not cool.

Are you a game developer? Do you know what it takes to create a game world as big and detailed as this will be (especially with Rockstar's standards)? How can you say it's been too long unless you're in the grind everyday working on this game? Jesus, have some patience.
