    star wars rogue one teaser trailer

    Well, and those young skinny know-it-all girls are getting tiresome. Rey was sort of a Luke clone, so I am ok with her looks (the abilities are another matter). But the agent in Rogue One is stretching it quite a bit. I would have no problems if she would have been the Nina Myers (24) type or...

    star wars rogue one teaser trailer

    I don't have a problem with female protagonists (or antagonists for that matter), quite opposite. I am annoyed of the "scrawny girly rules all effortlessly" however. What I am sick of of casting young pretty white girlies and calling that "diversity" or bold or whatever and making a huge hype...

    star wars rogue one teaser trailer

    Right, because Sarah Connor, Ellen Ripley, Buffy, the Charmed witches, Alias, Dark Angel, La Femme Nikita, Bionic Woman, Star Trek Voyager, The Fifth Element, Xena and all the other countless, decades old stuff with female heroines never happened. EP7 was pretty much a remake, and Rey a Luke...

    Half Life: The most overrated game series of all time?

    I know the intent, and I say it didn't work. The guards and scientists in HL have the personality of Tetris blocks. Retcon them into these "we survived school, adolescence and college together because of our deep friendship"-type characters, and Gordon himself into this mythical war-hero like...

    Half Life: The most overrated game series of all time?

    That's only true if one looked at ID Software only. Before Half-Life, there were quite a few FPSes with great storylines and "stuff you had to do besides shooting": System Shock, Realms of the Haunting, Cybermage, Strife (this one had far more fleshed out in-game NPCs than HL) I swear, it...

    Half Life: The most overrated game series of all time?

    It was average even back then, that's what I am talking about! I just don't get the hype! I played HL2 after Deus Ex, Jedi Knight 2, System Shock, and I was completely underwhelmed by HL2. The graphics were great (though, they caused nausea until I manually adjusted FOV) but that was about it...

    Half Life: The most overrated game series of all time?

    Does anyone else think that Valve are one of the luckiest bastards ever? I think their landmark series, the thing that made Steam possible, Half-Life, is the most overrated thing in gaming of all time. HL's often lauded story is nothing to write home about compared to other contemporaries...

    Ridiculous Thread About "Equality"

    Huh? -"Notwithstanding if the article was true or not: If a man would have been confronted with such accusations (racist and sexist language and hiring practice) he would have been DESTROYED ON THE SPOT. [...] If the roles would have been reversed (Chris Roberts being accused of sexism and...

    Ridiculous Thread About "Equality"

    What double-standard in the escapist-article? Notwithstanding if the article was true or not: If a man would have been confronted with such accusations (racist and sexist language and hiring practice) he would have been DESTROYED ON THE SPOT. Do you think a man would fare better under such...

    Ridiculous Thread About "Equality"

    Crap prospects for marriage then, because I am actually for equality. Ah, and this makes my blood boil. Women as a class were not worse off than men as a class. Sure, there were more male emperors and rulers maybe (the female counterparts were not exactly all nice either), but the common-man...

    Escapist Article on Star Citizen

    Never said otherwise. It's just a gut feeling based on the "vibe" I get from her. I get the feeling as if Chris is completely under her spell. I also found this to be an alarm-bell...

    Escapist Article on Star Citizen

    I believe the Gardiner stories. I get a bad vibe when I see this woman. I have never met her personally though. I think (emphasis) Chris has married a real dragon and she is dragging him down at every opportunity. I know it's not a PC thing to say, hopefully I won't get banned.
