Because there are some people who think that every game needs to re-invent the wheel and offer something 100% fresh. Of course, a lot of games that end up trying to do this fail by producing something that ends up being cumbersome or counter-intuitive. Personally, I think this game sounds great, definitely not perfect… » 9/30/14 10:34am Today 10:34am

My theory for the final season: Korra is going to willingly end the Avatar cycle. Possibly through her own death, but she could also find a way to sever her ties with Raava without having to physically die.

Every season has had a villain that, in one way or another, threatened Korra's identity as the Avatar. And every… » 9/29/14 10:56am Yesterday 10:56am

How would Civil War even work in the Cinematic Universe? They'd have to completely change the source of conflict, because (at least with what we have so far) the Superhuman Registration Act would be pointless as none of our currently established heroes have identities that the public (or at the very least SHIELD)… » 9/29/14 7:13am Yesterday 7:13am

Dexter I heard suffered from some executive meddling regarding the final season, and that the writers wanted to make a very different finale.

Lost was clearly made up as they went along, and HIMYM... well, I've written paragraphs on that ending, but all I'll say now is that the ending they wrote in 2006 (and filmed… » 9/26/14 9:50am Friday 9:50am

So, what kind of price would you pay? Because as other people have pointed out, the bundle is actually a pretty good deal. I'd pay $100 for the game + smash edition controller themselves if the adapter wasn't a requirement, the fact that they're also including it (which has a stand-alone price of $20) makes the whole… » 9/26/14 9:23am Friday 9:23am

I've never met anyone like this who didn't come across as unbearably smug. "Oh, you actually put thought and effort into your team? Well isn't that nice. Yeah, I just play for fun." It's really just one step away from the "anyone better than me at this game must have no life" fallacy. » 9/26/14 9:18am Friday 9:18am

The "space battles as dogfights" trope is the one that probably is the most justified, simply because it's what makes sense to the majority of audiences. Actual space combat would be vastly different, of course, but if you depicted that on-screen I bet more people would walk away confused than impressed. » 9/24/14 1:26pm 9/24/14 1:26pm

Something to add on the neutral B- in addition to collecting items, it also grants a brief period of invincibility. This means with a well-timed pocket, Villager can dodge things like the the trigger for Link's Final Smash (you may recall some confusion earlier regarding this- people thought he had actually pocketed… » 9/24/14 11:58am 9/24/14 11:58am

Here's my theory: the movie will film and edit a potentailly R-rated cut, but the theatrical cut will be PG-13. At some point during the theatrical cut, Deadpool will address the audience and tell them that the drawn-out version of a particular scene had to be saved for the Director's Cut DVD for ratings issues. That… » 9/24/14 6:49am 9/24/14 6:49am

It's also possible that the Genie experiences time like Dr. Manhattan- he's aware of all existence at once, at least from his perspective. Maybe there are rules that prevent him from divulging any information that could affect the future (sans wish), but random pop-culture references he's picked up are fine since they… » 9/24/14 9:39am 9/24/14 9:39am

Remember, what you're seeing is the PC version. Whoever recorded the bug might not have their graphics settings turned all the way up- or might not have the best of capture devices. I'd assume any footage of the PC version of any game isn't graphically optimized unless specifically noted. » 9/23/14 11:01pm 9/23/14 11:01pm

Were the genders of the party in 1 defined? I thought it was supposed to be ambiguous. As noted in the article, I'm pretty sure the original 3 referred to the main characters as boys at one point, although the remake that makes them distinct characters also makes one of them female. » 9/23/14 10:00am 9/23/14 10:00am
