I mean I had problems with them too, but it was the fact that they lost my relatively costly flower shipment, so they weren't there the day I (very carefully) planned for them to be. Additionally, the recipient ended up getting two of the same thing, except one of them was completely dead. At least they refunded the shipping for all of that, but I don't think I'll be using them again.

Ha, I think a mod cleaned up the language in the thread title.

@hatking: The only place I'll disagree with you is on the subject of aging. I do think that time and place matters and that even if a work does not age well, that shouldn't necessarily reflect its importance to the medium. I'm not saying that makes it a thing that is objectively good still, but I do feel like it's important to acknowledge those kinds of accomplishments.

Obviously it's up to you if you like or dislike a thing and there's nothing wrong with it either way, but I don't think that something not holding up well means that it wasn't good in the first place.

@hatking: I think you are 100% right about The Town being a better film, in most respects.

But I think you have to account for film being a product of its time - it's an ever-changing medium and progressively better things are done with it all the time. New art is always built upon the old. The Town may be the better film, but I'm not convinced it would exist if Heat had never been made.

I fucking love Heat but every time I think about watching it again I remember that it's like a 3-hour commitment.

Great movie, though, even if Pacino is a little hammy.

Just heard about this last night. It's a real bummer!

    It seems kinda like if Hotline Miami had none of the charm or style.

    Which is probably not fair because I don't think it's going for the same thing, but I just don't feel like I need 2 twin-stick shooters in my life right now.

    The banter in this QL is ON POINT though.

    I frequently end up buying PC versions of games after I play them on console. I actually just bought Limbo on Steam because I wanted to replay it but didn't want to hook up my 360 again.

    Plus, I buy stuff on Steam or GoG I already own that won't run right on modern operating systems.

    This thread is probably going to be a garbage heap in about 20 minutes, because anything related to this topic invariably devolves into personal attacks, but like.

    Good. This is good news.

    Finally. Never should have been on there in the first place.

    Good for you, duderette! That's some serious progress.

    Keep kicking ass!

    It's a relief to read a story about someone who is trans that doesn't end poorly. Current legislation in America is kinda appalling towards trans folk at the moment.

    For real, though.
