Pre-Rec: Broken Age

May 31, 20154,037 Comments

Rich likes “Texty-Type” more than “Pointy-Clicky” games. Jack’s hype annexed his sight, boredom joined, he a dick became.

    First bitches! Ha ha ha ha!

  • Congratulations.

  • Palpatine

    Thanks! I’m pretty sure I am the first person to ever make that comment.

  • Good going Palpy! Damn

  • Cream-A-Thon

    “Don’t Shit Your Pants” is the Madden of the Plinkett-verse.

  • RLMkeepitup

    Guys, guys, just tell me if the game is balls awesome already and stop saying big boring words!

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I can’t wait till Space Cop is done.The PreRec upload ratio vs HiTB/BOTW/WOTW is getting dangerously uneven.

  • whip

    Machinarium is the first adventure game you eve played? Wow. This is the wealth of knowledge and experience you are drawing on to review them? 😛

  • Cream-A-Thon

    These are just plain easier to produce. Shot, reverse shot, add a touch of wacky editing, game footage, jazz hands, whip, stir, whip whip, stir, and cha-ching – Pre Rec.
    Edit: Rich Evans isn’t even shaving. He does appear lucid. Perhaps his duzzt problems are behind him.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    PreRec in a nutshell Mr.Whip[lash]

  • Take off pants.
    Shit.

    Mike can crash the PreRec-team anytime.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Rich should try Day of the Tentacle and Sam and Max: Hit the Road (NOT the Telltale games) before entirely dismissing the point-and-click adventure games. Or the first 2 Monkey Islands.

    edit: And I forgot Indy’s Fate of Atlantis. Which is also pretty good.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Is Bad Mojo a title anyone remembers? ‘Cos I do.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I remember it now. Was it like 11th Hour and 7th Guest? Not a fan of that particular branch of adventure games.

  • whip

    I know, I hope people don’t misunderstand, the smiley is there for a reason. I’m just taking the piss.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Yes. That and Grim Fandango were among my favorites when I used to ‘game’. As for ‘texty-typy’ games I also enjoyed Infocom style games and recently re-discovered the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy game has been updated:

  • Boose Rolton

    Sanitarium’s decent too. A bit trippy at times, but very atmospheric.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I wonder, do people that comment first get some kind of price or something? People seem so excited when they are the first to comment. Do they send you a pizza roll in the mail?

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Don’t don’t about stuff you don’t like.

  • Domo_Returns

    They’re still warm when you receive them. I always get my pizza rolls moldy and cold. Being the first to comment earns you warm pizza rolls where the goo just starts to come out.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Nothing’s better than a game made by a guy who hates gamers…

  • Crixxxx

    Any discussion about the point and click adventure game should include the LucasArts games of the 80s-90s, where Tim Schafer got his start. Simply the best games of the genre ever made, and don’t worry, George Lucas didn’t have anything to do with making them. The best among them are:

    Monkey Island series
    Sam and Max Hit the Road
    Day of the Tentacle/Maniac Mansion
    Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
    Full Throttle
    The Dig
    Grim Fandango

  • Hank_Henshaw

    One day I too will be the first to comment. Just gotta work harder on it.

  • Boose Rolton

    Way to go Mr Improvised Bladed Weapon Commonly Used in Penitentiary Institutions Palpatine!

  • Palpatine

    This Tim Shaffer guy hates gamers?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Too late for that.PreRec motto is never backtracking on their opinions no matter how shallow they are.

  • Palpatine

    That’s Mr Improvised Bladed Weapon Commonly Used in Penitentiary Institutions Palpatine to you! Wait, what?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    something something crocodile brain something something lion brain

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Something to do with Keurig, i think.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Yeah, just google Tim Shaffer sock puppet or go to his twitter account. He hates everything but his own ego which makes me sad because I love his games.

  • Space Blarp: It took 12 years to make

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I can see Rich complaining that Full Throttle is too easy. And it is. It’s basically an interactive movie (but a fun one). At the time, it was beautiful to look at, now, it’s aged a bit.

  • Palpatine

    Is this what you’re talking about:

  • Wizard Phoenix

    [insert joke that Percy Gryce made]

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I find it very easy to separate the art from the artist.Compared to Woody Allen/Roman Polanski Shaffer is a saint.

  • If they thought Broken Age or Full Throttle was easy, what would they have said to any Telltale game?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Here’s the difference between Allen and Polanski compared with Shaffer. They admitted what they did was wrong and at least Polanski didn’t say “FUCK THE FILM INDUSTRY!”

  • I don’t think I get the joke.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Brutal Legend. Don’t forget that gem.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I REALLY wanted to love Telltale games. I mean, Sam and Max, Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Monkey Island, it’s like they were pandering directly to me. Bored me to tears, I had to give up.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    He was then banned from GDC

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Completely forgot about the “Indy” title there but a rush of Proust-ian memories of late nights, orange soda, unwashed pantaloons, and head-desking over this game.

  • dejectedchuckle

    Don’t Shit Your Pants is a great game. This episode should have been about that.

  • Palpatine

    What’s GDC?

  • I get that this game was hard to rate and place on a recommendation scale but this was very vague and not a good description of the game.

    I think it has potential to lure more of a mainstream audience and it has a unique feel to it that could generate more new longtime fans. And the storytelling and Tim-style humouresque packaging is something that I would want to spread to other genres.

    And what does “I almost had a good time playing it” mean anyway?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Game Developers Conference.

  • Same here, while I thought Back to the Future was alright from a story stand point, the puzzles were PAINFULLY easy. It certainly was no Discworld.

  • Boose Rolton

    I thought you go by Sheeeeeev these days. (as in “shiv” get it, ahahahaha I’m so funny.)

  • Palpatine

    For making a joke about feminists?

  • It has a good pacing to be that an interactive movie. Wish theyd made more of them.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    There was also a Last Crusade game using similar game assets/graphics, but I’ve never played it or know anyone who has.

  • dollar store cashier wife
  • Maureen: Nice forks. Where’d you get them?
    Ben: Right next to the knives and spoons.

    #class

  • Wizard Phoenix

    No people who are against douche bags and for bringing personal shit into an awards show. You don’t typically force an agenda at an award show.

  • Boose Rolton

    Now I demand a walktrhough of Don’t Poop Your Pants by Bauman and Stoklasa.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    We already got tips from Jack about peeing into your Depends from the ‘Geritol Follies’ fiasco.

  • Domo_Returns

    I’m gonna say “I almost had a good time [verbing] it” as often as possible in everyday situations and see how often someone wants to punch me in the face.

    “I almost had a good time eating this meal.”
    “I almost had a good time dating you.”
    “I almost had a good time sleeping with you.”

    The possibilities are endless!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Why doesn’t Tim Spiritual Successor to Jorge’s Hack Fraudness Shaffer just quit the games industry and just write cartoons or movies? He’s just lazy in terms of game design now. At least with Ken Levine, who started off as a screen writer and is writing Logan’s Run, he knows how to design an amazing game. In fact he got better everytime. Just quit, Tim, you asshole fraud.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I’ve played the Atari 2600 Raiders game on a jenyoowine console – required two joysticks to play, if memory serves.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I also liked the graphics on Back to the Future. I was never sold on the 3D models for Sam and Max or Jurassic Park, but for BTTF it worked nicely.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I cringe watching that not because I’m against the message, I’m for it but it requires a lot of explaining for the dumbasses that watch the Oscars, but you’re winning an Oscar. Thank people and be happy that you got to be in CSI Cyber, don’t force this crap on us, you fraud.

  • Ken Levine is writing Logan’s Run? I swear, that guy has a fetish for dystopias.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    It will be awesome because of him. I’m looking forward to a remake of a movie classic! HELP ME! I’M NOT MYSELF ANYMORE!

  • We both know it can only work if it is CG-animated in the style of Bioshock.

  • Boose Rolton

    Yeah, he should have just left it alone, at least while he was there. Most people who got involved in the whole GamerGate thing on either side did not come out looking good.

  • Palpatine

    What kind of personal shit did he bring in to the awards show? I’m still not really clear on this.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    He’s anti-gamergate and declared on his twitter that gaming was dead because people were angry at him and a guy named Fish who I will not mention here.

  • Charon

    My favorite part of Call of Duty: Black Ops for the XBOX 360? Being able to play ZORK at the mini-console in the menu screen. My little brother sat and played ZORK and Dead Ops Arcade more than the actual game itself. I flipped a lot of young lids with a fucking TEXT GAME.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I actually want a more retro future style, kinda like the flop Tomorrowland.

  • Palpatine

    So he said gaming is dead because people were mad at him? Wow, what an ego-maniac.

  • We really want him to stay a one trick pony. He’s been doing that stuff since System Shock.

  • Domo_Returns

    So do people really feel cheated by this particular kickstarter? I’m looking at the Youtube comments on Pre-Rec and this Tim Schafer guy is getting the same vitriol as Harry Knowles from certain people.

    I don’t know this genre or guy at all, and Jack/Rich treated the subject like everyone knows who Schafer is. Please help!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Ken ain’t directing just writing. Besides he ain’t making fucking Tomorrowland.

  • dejectedchuckle

    “I almost had a good time playing it” is a hilariously curt way to sum something up. The episode is more vague than I think they intended but I get the feeling that is a reflection of them not being too engaged by the game overall.

  • He’s a sort of a legend, I guess? He wrote some really successful and genuinely funny adventure games in the 90’s. The genre has been pretty much dead for at least 15 years until Telltale Games started bringing it back with their own twist and focus on the story instead of the puzzles and Schafer has generally went on to make other well written games that were usually lacking in the gameplay department. One of his cult classics Grim Fandango was re-released recently. I don’t know anything about the recent GamerGate bullshit going on. Nor do I particularly care.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Tim Schafer is the George Lucas of video games only he seems to hate everything.

  • instant relief

    You need to learn how to AltaVista!

  • Domo_Returns

    So do people get mad because of the style-over-substance changes Schafer has made to the genre? As though he misunderstood why the audience loved the genre to begin with?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    At least this game had Jennifer Hale as voice actress, like every game. She’s basically the female Steve Blum

  • Domo_Returns

    I keep trying to go right with my Mario character, but I keep falling into the pit and dying.

    What am I doing so wrong?!

  • TapewormBike

    He can do whatever, he made Grim Fandango. No, it’s not the same as Star WarLALALALALALALALALALA!

  • Palpatine

    So is Tim Schaffer pro-feminist?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    That and he admitted that he hates gamers because they pointed out flaws in some of his bullshit reasoning behind his agenda pushing crap.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Loved Zork, Planetfall, and H2G2. Back then Infocom’s physical packaging included fun objects and accessories. One wonders if they’re worth anything now and what an unopened packet of microscopic intergalactic space ships goes for.

  • Dumbing stuff down has been the trend since pretty much the beginning. Changing the way you controlled adventure games limited the ways in which you interacted with the game, so instead of writing commands for your character, you just clicked on the screen and looked for possible objects to find/use/combine.

    Here’s a video on the history of the genre.
    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5F679F0CD41D8294

  • instant relief

    I liked it until it turned into a RTS game all of a sudden and then I stopped playing.

  • Cream-A-Thon
  • TapewormBike

    You would be like the best Gamergate mascot.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Yes, he even appeared in a dumb video about Male Privilege with a bunch of nerds. Also I would like to mention that video was not written by woman but a man who is a wealthy rich male who complains about how gaming is messed up because of a lack of women.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    He promised to deliver an old school adventure game but Broken Age didn’t delivered that in the eyes of the people who grew up with this genre.It’s also the most successful gaming kickstarter ever.So yeah people spew vitrol over the game not living up to the hype.

  • instant relief

    Let’s be AOL buddies!

  • No, I am the Firestarter.

    #datedjoke

  • instant relief
  • I agree. They gave a good framework of what kind of game it was. But just wish that theyd given more specifics at the end and not just go to personal but generalize the idea of what kind of people would like it.

    It was a —— review overall and I almost had a good time watching it.

  • Funny, I remember this song being a bit more… lively.

  • TapewormBike

    I heard so far that this one is both dumbed down and as frustrating as the old adventure games. Which one it is? I need to know before I decide to watch the good bits on Youtube.

  • Domo_Returns

    Every time Jack mentioned the one Broken Age character, Shay, I kept thinking Peter Dinklage was gonna show up and choke a whore, then go and shoot down his Daddy issues with a crossbow.

    That sounds like a much better text-based puzzle story to me.

  • instant relief

  • Nah, that would be Plinkett. Having said that, please let’s not get RLM into this.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Let me pose a question: is it possible to separate Schaffer’s ego from the games he’s made?

  • Think with portals!

  • instant relief

    Is it possible to seperate the kickstarter money from Schaffer’s cocaine habit?

  • It was a complete mess on PC. I wanted to like it but the gameplay was all over the place.

  • It works! Sarcastic and witty and no one can hold you responsible for saying anything.

  • TapewormBike

    Used to be very easy, with this one and all the stuff surrounding it, it’s much harder.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Yeah – lets repost Harlan Ellison’s work and then go MUDing until dawn!

  • Domo_Returns

    Oh my Groin. That’s the funky shit.

  • instant relief

    I gotta rewind my Betamax tapes tho.

  • TapewormBike

    Your favourite old school adventure games, go. NOW DAMMIT!

  • No one can remake good things that happened in our childhood exept Linklatter.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Only play on console. PC it’s more fucked up than a brused up hooker.

  • instant relief

    I’m the trouble starter,
    Plinkett instigator.

  • Angelo

    He planned something at first and then did something quite different, mainly because they had more money than anticipated. The result is that the game took much more time to be made, and the second part realeased didn’t live up to the expectations (that’s what the critics say, I didn’t play it).

    I heard it is all kinds of weird and fucked up.

    I was thinking once I saw the art of this game I thought about something that should happen. A Gorillaz movie. Good idea?

    Recently adapted as The Edge of Tommorow. Kinda.

  • TapewormBike

    Damon Albarn’s Muppet Adenture?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    With Jason Segal?

  • Red Skeleton

    It is pretty messed up. It was also a lot more gruesome originally but they had to cut it back (see the bit where you could eat a baby). The final version is OK but it’s really easy to fuck up and counter intuitive, which was KINDA the point. Science fiction writer and co-author of the game Harlan Ellison wanted the game to be “unwinnable” e.g. have no good ending but the game company disregarded that suggestion… though the good ending is kinda a cop out.

    I’d like a RLM game where you wander through their offices, the various sets, and Milwaukee localities solving puzzles, fighting characters from their respective universes (ie: Crazy Fat Ethel, the V World Matrix lady, Nukie, ROTOR, Officer Kozlowski, Plinkett, etc.), and calling phones.

  • Now, there’s an idea! TO THE KICKSTARTER PAGE!
    There would probably be problems with the various IPs involved. Who cares.

    We’d get enough money for stretch goals and then we’d run off with it.

  • Angelo

    I’d buy that for a dollar.

  • Angelo

    Okay, I guess I vaguely see now. Though I never thought about a game having a “style”.

  • What’s the last bad one you played?

  • Yeah, it’s a really… dodgy category at times.

  • Snake Squeezer

    Only for children’s amusement.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Journey. But its honestly the only one I’ve encountered that might fit this category as an infrequent gamer.

  • Domo_Returns

    If Dan Wilson wanted to create a text-based adventure game about Iowa’s largest wildlife reserve, would the giraffes be drawn in pixel form or fancy watercolors?

  • Angelo

    Journey is great, I liked the original “multiplayer”, but the game is so original that if kind of creates a genre by itself.

  • Angelo

    Well I always thought that a director / author / painter… had a style, not the work of art itself.

  • Sully

    Both.

  • Nah, I think it’s quite common to say that some piece of art is stylized, especially when it comes to films – Sin City or Kill Bill would be good examples of stylized films.

  • Like Icare

    I don’t know. But I know that it would have magnetron copy protection.

  • Sully

    Ico.

    I’d love a next-gen remake of that game.

  • Sully

    How do you rewind a kid though? Do you use a pencil, or do you need something like a flat-head screwdriver?

  • A drill or a washing machine should do. Depends on how big the kid is.

  • Next thing you tell me is how Shadow Of The Colossus was the best game ever…

  • Angelo

    I see what you mean, but what is “stylized” and what is not is very subjective in the end.
    Those two examples are interesting because those movies are quite “flashy”.
    But a Bresson’s or Tarkovsky’s movie, although not flashy, also has a style, though I guess most people wouldn’t call them “stylized” because they are not “flashy”.

  • Sully

    Below the Root, motherfucker! Is that old enough for you?!

  • Domo_Returns

    Yes.

    I love that game but watching Rich playing it was the most dreadful experience of my life.

  • Palpatine

    Ah, I just love these meme’s that make no sense whatsoever.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    It makes sense actually. You see there are moronic teenagers who combine animated franchises together with no hint of logic as to why because they don’t fit together. So we got a mocking meme called Bee Shrek Test in The House as a response.

  • Like Icare

    I think it’s some kind of a hot beverage.

    PS3 remaster is NOT a next-gen remake. That being said, where IS that fuq’n Last Guardian Game they teased forever ago?

    “Papers Please”.

    It was retarded and made by someone who obviously had no clue about living anywhere other than in a cushy western democracy and who bases his understanding of a totalitarian regime on once watching a part of “1984” but then switching the channel cause it got boring.

    It’s also probably more than a little insulting to people living in countries whose circumstances it is supposedly trying to mimic.

    It kinda felt like watching “Rent”.
    It’s not just that the simulation of reality is wrong cause it is factually inaccurate – it’s that the internal logic of story is wrong to the point of being comical… or depressing.
    Depending on if you like to watch people fail or not.

  • Kirke

    Holy shot, Rich looks really good.

    DotT is one of my favorite adventure games ever. Still waiting for an iOS remake, since we got Simon the Sorcerer ages ago.

    Simon the Sorcerer. Day of the Tentacle. All the Dizzy shit.

  • I remember it got really good reviews. It’s nice to see different point of view. Having said that, wasn’t it supposed to be taken a bit less seriously than the aforementioned 1984?

  • Angelo

    I think the game not being realistic or accurate in its portrayal of a totalitarian regime is kind of deliberate…
    I liked it, I thought it was original and had interesting gameplay mechanics. Wouldn’t play it again though.

  • jmt

    I sensed an unseemly amount of joy among the RLM crew about successfully shitting the floor.

    Hey you hack frauds! This month marks the 40th anniversary of some piece-of-shit shark movie nobody saw, “Jowls” or some such. In addition to ripping-off the formula codified by the genius filmakers at the Asylum it (supposedly) redefined Hollywood profitability expectations and created summer blockbusters. It was also quite scary supposedly despite the fact they don’t show the monster very much.

    Now I know your quest for “integrity” and general dislike of money has resulted in you all doing things that you want to do instead of what your fans want BUT… I was just thinking maybe there might be some demand for a Jaws commentary track.

    Rich, of course its wrong. This is gaming discussion on the internet! You are always wrong! If you agree with a plurality of critics then you’re a soulless bandwagoner, and if you buck the bandwagon then you’re a pretentious aging hipster. If you mention Sierra Text Adventures then you are an ignorant troglodyte for not mentioning Zork. And if you say that Tim Shafer adventure games are heavy on art design, story, and characterization and light on puzzles and gameplay (Which holds very true for Shafer’s lead development of Full Throttle and Grim Fandango) and otherwise acknowledge that they aren’t infallibly perfect games bestowed to us by Christ, then it is only logical that you are shallow and hate Tim Schafer games. What it amounts to is you can’t be you, you can only be me, because you are always wrong, and I am always, right.

  • Like Icare

    That’s a bit of a cop-out.
    Cause the problem is too underlying to be “oh… we did this cause… umm… fun”.

    The game has a lazy scoring and achievement system.
    Which, because Lucas Pope knows dick about non-western-democracy type societies, economy, black market, totalitarian regimes, politics, sociology, socialized healthcare… etc. etc. – Pope “naturally” decided to make it all about money, which then controls whether your family (with whom you have NO interaction and form no attachment to as they are merely a list) lives or dies and whether you lose the game.

    Which is RETARDED.
    Totalitarian societies are NEVER about money – but about ideology.

    A game built with understanding of that would allow you to happily sacrifice everything (including your children) to the ideal of some future utopia.
    And same goes for your family.
    Orwell knew that, with kids reporting their parents to the state.
    Pope doesn’t know nor does he understand that.

    Then… it’s a game of productivity. Because that means money.
    Which again, is not how it works in an ideology-run society which (its ideology being essentially flawed) ends up tying itself in endless red tape which is there to try to force the utopia, foregoing productivity completely and instead championing ideals of whatever ideology it runs on.

    A clerk in a totalitarian country would be COMMENDED and even promoted for not letting any foreign “spies” in or for reporting every single person as a spy.
    A totalitarian regime doesn’t care if you come in or not – it doesn’t need you anyway as it already controls EVERYTHING.
    And if it does let you in – you’re not going anywhere, inside or outside, if the regime does not want you to.

    The entire thing is based on a very childish understanding of a rather serious subject.

    You CAN make a game (or any other form of art and expression) which is not realistic or accurate and still make it “correct” if you understand the underlying issues of the subject.
    Gilliam did that with Brazil.

    There is no society quite like that and it is a satire and a dark SciFi comedy – but it pokes and points at real things.
    Incompetence and bureaucracy, imagined terrorists to hide said incompetence, “toe the line” mentality, poltroonery and sycophancy as talents and strengths…

  • Domo_Returns

    He’s admitted to being dyslexic, however with the Oregon Trail mention, there was a screen cap for it so the audience knew what he was talking about. I just don’t remember which Pre-Rec show this was mentioned in.

    He even argued why his way of saying it was correct on a stream, even though it’s very much a regional/cultural thing and dialect plays a part in how it’s said. There’s no correct way to say it, unless you’re from Oregon, and then you’re right!

    They played Darkest Dungeon on Twitch already, didn’t they?
    I’m curious about the curious expedition, though. I had been watching it from time to time on TIG, but had no idea it was out already.

  • Like Icare

    Gilliam’s Brazil is a less serious take on 1984 but you can’t say that it is not taking the whole thing very seriously. Because it has understanding of underlying concepts.

    PP lacks understanding of the thing it is supposed to be about.

    It is literally a case of a pampered westerner stepping out of his comfort zone and automagically proclaiming that experience “like… worst thing evaaar… you knoo”.
    Pope got the idea for PP from dealing with immigration officers of that well known dungeon of the nations – Japan.

    And since most of his audience are 20-somethings, have never had to deal with actual bureaucracy-heavy totalitarian regime, but like to consider themselves politically liberal and socially astute – it got great reviews as it fits their “standing in line is like being in Nazi Russia” understanding of the topics it handles.
    And OMGHAAAAD! It is SO like retro! Like… way back in the ’80s and stuff… and it even takes place in the ’80s… That’s like… so retro.

    Yeah… I actually originally just typed in Tomorrowland… except thanks probably to some degree to the Richism syndrome you’re describing (and also me not caring for that moopie) I wrote Futureland.

  • Red Skeleton

    Hey, don’t make fun of people who make typos and then keep them. My brother made a series of clip-art monsters attacking clip-art cities and other clip art monsters. He didn’t know what to call his monster (a clip-art salamander) so he called the project “something” except he missed a letter and typed “Somerhing.” He decided Somerhing sounded sufficiently monster-like and kept the name.

    Hey, Guybrush Threepwood got his name the same way.

  • Damn shame to. It was a lot of fun. Barbarians, Mega Force and Criminally Insane were hilarious to watch.

    This also resulted in a conversation where I actually tried to explain just what we do here.

    -What are you doing, whats so funny?
    -It’s this thing where we get togeather and watch a bunch of crap and we call it the manhole. We watch Bmovies and inbetween there is random stuff.
    -Why is it called the manhole. are you just guys? Is it a testosterone fest? No girls allowed?
    -No that’s a commentboard thing. You see, we make jokes and…

    Such as?

  • I can’t spend time there because i dont have time. And I am also afraid it could spoil future BotW movies if i’ve seen them already.

    It was punishment for making you guys suffer through Jack and Jill. And I deserved it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQLFxkGyrRk

  • Angelo

    Here’s what I think:

    The game is, first of all, a gameplay. It’s a puzzle game in which you embody an immigration officer and, as a player, you have to memorize the numerous documents, procedures, protocols, etc., to do so. It’s a real challenge to be able to keep up, trying to earn enough money to save your family. It’s just a goal and the game never tries to be more than that: a mechanic that you have to master in order to win. I thought It was original and refreshing.

    On top of that there is a story and moral choices with consequences: are you ready to do immoral things to gain more money? will you help the resistance? etc. I liked that the overall story was kind of implicit, with the player having to figure out things for himself.

    I liked the overall design and I never thought the game was trying to truly recreate the feeling of living in a totalitarian regime (is that even possible?), and I think that’s where you are mistaken, because you imply that’s what the game tries and fails to do.

    As for you comment about totalitarian societies not being about money, I think you are quite naive. A few individuals are true believers and fanatics, but the majority of people (whether it’s the top brass or the low citizens) care about money and / or power. Hitler didn’t succeed with ideology only, he succeded because he promised the
    Wehrmacht that he would restore its former glory (therefore they supported him), be promised the bankers and capitalists that he would get rid of the communists (therefore they supported him), he promised the people that they would get jobs, etc. And of course its the economic crisis of the 1930’s that contributed to the rise of Hitler.
    So I wouln’t get rid of the money factor so easily.

    PS: sorry for the grammar / vocabulary mistakes, I’m not a native english speaker.

    No on Darkest Dungeon (at least not that I can find on Twitch or Youtube).

    I think it would be great fun to watch them play. Heroes with permanent death. You can name your heroes. Failure happens. It’s a good game, and despite “early access” status it should be played now. It’s hard for me to even consider the game early access because it’s more polished than many full game releases I’ve played.

    Same on curious expedition, it’s worth playing now in early access although I could see it having further to go with changes and what not.

  • Uh… Leave Britney alone…?

    As in, I’m not touching that with a 10ft pole.

  • tOmy`

    No clue. I didn’t read the books so I have no clue whether this focus on Jon is per original or not.

    HBO could be as well trying to “throw a bone” to your typical TV show audience to sustain ratings. I can see a lot of people saying that most of the stuff is boring, but “Jon rawks”. Plus, situation-wise, it is pretty much the most interesting action stuff they have.

  • tOmy`

    Damn, that reminds me I missed the last episodes of Walking Dead.

    Sidebar: I dunno whether all the “inside info” is still valid, but according to HBO, even this kinda popularity is not enough to sustain the show on this level.

    The problems included massive pirating, cost per episode, lack of material and whole logistic nightmare of the show.

  • I love Telltale stuff and now want to check out this. I wouldn’t know if I’d call them “games” though, not in the traditional sense.
    Especially with the franchises they’re going for and the episodic release schedule they’re trying to be interactive stories and nothing else. They remind me of those old ‘choose your own adventure’ books but with animation and voice acting.
    I know the first episode of the first season of their Walking dead game had some pixel hunting but since then I can’t remember any. The last few episodes of Game of Thrones I barely break from the cut-scene/dialogue-tree/quick-time-event format.

  • Have you played any of their more recent games, like The Walking Dead or The Wolf Among Us? I’ve heard there much better than Telltales earlier stuff, they found their niche by perfecting the storytelling element and simplifying the gameplay.
    I know many people who admit the ending of The Walking Dead season 1 is the first time a video game had made them cry.
    Me and my university housemates used to experience them together as a communal activity, one of us would ‘play’ while the others watched and occasionally shouted suggestions.
    It got to the point where none of us could play the latest episode until everyone else was ready.
    Needless to say we didn’t get out much (my housemates were all studied computer animation).

    I know, but Percy’s been trying for years to beat Taco. Poor guy has almost always been second since this shameful wall has been constructed.

    Taco’s gonna be hard to beat, due to the fact he’s made over 9000 7000 comments.

  • omnipotent

    off*

  • Domo_Returns

    But right now, Taco’s account has been kind of dormant, and from what I’ve noticed as I watched this new account go up the wall, comments/likes on active accounts are weighted higher than inactive accounts.

    So if we all banded together and liked all of Percy’s comments in exchange for sexual favors or something simple like that, Percy would probably knock Taco from his top spot in another 6 months or so. I think. It’s just a theory. More of a guesstimate, really.

  • My ex wife

    We can have sexual favours for liking Mr Gryces’ comments?? I’ve been doing it for free all this time!

  • Sully

    Maybe upvotes and swishy tails factor in.

  • Domo_Returns

    That and you’re on Palpatine’s mantle as a stuffed toy for him to admire. That’s a really important factor to consider.

  • omnipotent

    I better start upvoting myself, if you catch my drift…

  • Sully

    He’s always been jealous of my gorgeous mane.
    Poor bald bastard.

  • My ex wife

    Show them what you’ve found?

  • Domo_Returns
  • A true fox and a gentleman.

  • Palpatine

    Balding, thank you very much. There is a difference.

  • Domo_Returns

    If your hair was melted off, is it balding or just your scalp? I mean, Mace Windu nuked all your hair follicles.

  • Palpatine

    The lightning didn’t melt my face, it just revealed my true appearance. The Dark Side can have real bad effect on you, just like meth.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    You’re right. My apologies. I think the butt crack forehead prevented me from noticing.

    I miss when we all congratulated each other and made a big deal about hitting comment milestones. It was so stupid, but at the same time it was kinda fun.

  • Palpatine

    Christ, when’s the last time Faddlechud was on here?

  • Domo_Returns

    Terminator commentary. He comments, but it’s like once per video.

  • My ex wife

    Just drag all the items on top of everything until something works?

  • Cream-A-Thon

    This just means I can throw more ‘Gary the Cylon’, ‘Tales from the Crypt’, ‘I Have a Bad Case of Diarrhea”, PSA’s, AIP’s, FOR’s, GDM’s, BOTW’s, FBI’s, CIA’s, NSA’s, LBJ’s…

    Yes. The old wall was a lot more majestic and meaningful. One could actually understand how it worked. This new one, however, is like a participant award. No one feels left out! Everyone gets on the wall!

  • My ex wife

    Thank Rich! I finally made it to the bottom! In more ways than one.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Great video guys. That end song is as great as ever.

    By the way, I saw Fury Road yesterday. It was great, at least the action and the weird shit. But that’s all I asked for so it’s fine. The biggest thing (literally) that retracted me from the experience was the fat, wiggly kid with bad posture “sitting” next to me, who rolled around in his seat the whole time.
    Also, you were right, Domo; the clear plastic armor was fab <3

  • Yes. I mean.. Affirmative.

  • Sully

    Not Die Hard Boiled Egg Salad Sandwich? Damn.

  • Sully

    My opinion is this… if you’re going to go through the trouble of having boils all over your body, why hide them with non-transparent armor? Amiright?

  • Palpatine

    Maybe I should’ve used clear armor with Lord Vader.

  • Palpatine

    R.I.P. Betsy Palmer a.k.a. Pamela Voorhees from the Friday the 13th movies.

  • Like Icare

    Money is what poor people think of when they use words like “power”.

    As for Hitler…
    That what you are describing there IS ideology – restoring glory is PURE ideology.
    Legend of ancient greatness.

    Also, what did he promise people to go and round up the Jews?
    Gold in their teeth? What about the people who were not into that whole
    accumulation of wealth thing?
    What did he promise to Germans to get them to burn books?How about destroying all that decadent art?
    Did he promise them jobs there too?

    As for capitalists… Nazis were vehemently anti-capitalist. It’s National Socialism.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazism#Anti-capitalism

    BUT… unlike communists they didn’t topple an empire and shot a tzar and his family in the process AND they weren’t pressing on that whole enforced equality thing and nationalization of private property – they were gonna let rich keep their toys AND keep their toys safe from the communists.
    Not eliminate commies. Commies were sorta-kinda their distant “crazy” cousins whom they would “control”.

    Again… he sold rich people his ideology of “private property is OK”.

    Also, you should look up about how Nazis actually got into power, along with how all fascists did – it rhymes with “they stole it despite being in minority”.

    Hitler wasn’t making promises.
    He played a hard leader (selling ideology) to his troops and a softie to those in power – until he had enough power to seize it all.

    It’s funny…
    People will quote Ledger’s Joker word for word, watch news of people blowing themselves up because of their ideology, will watch movies and news about other people willing to lay down their lives for a rag on a pole, will watch their and other people’s political leaders pushing completely non-monetary agendas such as abortion, religion and gay rights, will accept racism as a self-understood fact of our world, will watch and read about genocides…

    But still so many people will jump on the idea of money and wealth as primary motivator for people.

    Despite all those examples of things people are far more willing to kill or die for.

    Or have their head bashed in by cops or skinheads.
    MLK didn’t march for money.
    Nor did Gandhi.
    Mandela wasn’t in prison over money.
    Heck… anyone from this list:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_civil_rights_leaders

    On a side note… when you’re running a totalitarian regime not only do you already own all of the money and stuff in the land and probably have your face on the money too – you don’t need money for anything.
    Including running death squads and disappearing people.
    Besides there being people who are willing to do that work for free (or even willing to pay you to let them do it) – people will obey authority.
    Those who don’t well… you simply get rid of them first.

    On a side, side note…
    Pick up some Ian Banks’ Culture books.
    Particularly “The Player of Games”.
    That one deals a lot with how trivial money or even various forms of pressure can be to people simply not into those things – while others keep trying to influence them that way.
    He even covers those who think that power OVER people is true measure of power.

    Though… his books tend to be hard to read.
    But he sure had insight into some things.

  • Angelo

    What I’m merely saying is that ideology doesn’t explain everything.
    Hitler (or anybody else, its just an example) with his speeches alone, well he can’t do nothing (he even failed the first time he tried to seize power).
    He had to have support. And people / groups support you if they have something to gain from it. Someone had to pay for his political campaigns, and if they paid its because they had something to gain from it.

    Sure, Hitler had some followers that believed in every words he was saying, but that’s not the majority: most people just saw an opportunity to achieve whatever they wanted.
    Why support the anti-jews laws? A German will see an opportunity to take its place, open its own store, etc.
    And Hitler didn’t “stole” power, it was given to him, reluctantly, by the President Hindenburg, when he made him Chancellor. He didn’t want to, but he was convinced by interested parties that Hitler could be manipulated. Not much ideology here.

  • TapewormBike

    OK, I am falling down a procrastination sized hole and while looking for some New Loud tracks to listen to, I have stumbled upon some Reddit stuff about a “controversy” with Jessi asking other RLM peeps on Pre Rec stream if they wanna smoke weed, the direct quote being “mumblemumble, mumble mumble?”. And some people were outraged by that (as in nothing). I sometimes feel like we are the only people who watch RLM videos (thus we have the right to outright absue the comment section and it feels weird when I see other people talking about it.

    Oh Polda. There is no way to describe to a non-Czech person how it feels to hear Luděk Sobota make Pulp Fiction references.

  • tOmy`

    Exactly. Just recently I thought about replaying it. Not sure whether it still holds to this age tho. But I remember the humor being really great and graphics just beautiful.

  • TapewormBike

    I don’t know about the humour being still as great from what I can remember, but, that’s about the czechest game there is.

    “I am giving this game 20%, 10% for each boob of the main protagonist.”

    Or the beautiful “set up” of the Doom atmosphere for the review:

    The wall used to be much different. You could click a tab and each person had their very own little plaque with their RLM comment count underneath. Only the top 12 or so showed up, kinda like an employee of the month wall. It made it really easy for us to see when someone hit 1000 comments or whatever so we could rejoice in the stupidity of it all.

I’ve played Broken Age, which I loved (I don’t mind the dumbed-down puzzles, because my brain’s still not accustomed to the adventure game format), Sam and Max: Season 3, played a little of Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent, the Grim Fandango remake, and I own both The Raven and Machinarium, neither of which I’ve played yet.

  • Medacris

    Add ‘Rick Santorum’ to the name generator, if you can. Internet reviewer-guy Stuart Ashen made a joke that Santorum sounded like a Sith Lord name, and now I can’t unthink it.

  • Palpatine

    Who’s directing it?

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Not surprised. John Carpenter’s classics all get the remake treatment. I think the only one missing now is They Live, which will happen. No one will want to remake Vampires or Ghosts of Mars.

  • Palpatine

    Technically the 2011 version of The Thing wasn’t a remake, it was a prequel.

  • Malevolence

    Still nothing, starting to believe he’s impotent

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Well, it was a stealth-remake. The movie pretty much replicates the first one, plot point by plot point. They knew people would reject a sequel or a remake, so some studio asshole went “Let’s call it a prequel!” Still failed.

  • tOmy`

    I guess this will be fairly important for few people: http://fallout.bethsoft.com/

    Yes, Half Life 3 confirmed.

  • I soiled my self after seeing the news. I don’t play so much anymore and limit most of my playing to just a few games and try to not get to engaged in them. But this could be a game changer even for me.

    Thanks for letting me know. I look forward to Bethesda’s further ruination of a beloved franchise.

    Yes, I am going to be that guy.

  • Red Skeleton

    I really dislike F3, but I LOVE New Vegas.

  • Earth

    I’m the same as you. I love New Vegas. But that was developed by Obsidian. Not Bethesda. I get the feeling this’ll be made by the same hacks who made Skyrim.

  • Red Skeleton

    No, that was Don’t Piss Your Pants.

  • So, you’re saying it’s like Skyrim with Guns?

  • Same here.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    So the Hollywood people that went to Jurassic World’s premiere liked the movie. I hope that means the movie is decent-to-good, and not just Hollywood people patting each other in the back.

    Not to argue with the fact that Hitler’s Germany was a decentralized mess of a kleptocracy, and that greed wasn’t one motivator for supporters who didn’t care much about the master race nonsense, but it’s not the ultimate reason why Hitler became chancellor and eventually dictator.

    Here’s the gist of it:

    1. His willingness to do anything was severely underestimated by rival conservatives who placed him in the chancellorship.

    2. He used his power to steal control of Germany through a campaign of terror, voter suppression, and incarceration via the Reichstag Fire Decree using a combination of legitimate authorities and SA paramilitaries.

    3. By the end of that campaign it became clear to the centrists that if the Nazis didn’t get their Enabling Act that essentially made Hitler King they were going to install him anyway. The unspoken question in that room was whether or not you wanted to live in Hitler’s Germany as a free man or as a resident of Buchenwald. The Centrists didn’t negotiate positions of power and wealth for themselves to give Hitler their vote, they negotiated for guarantees of their continued existence and protections for various institutions (mainly Catholic Church related things). In short they asked that they be left alone and to be allowed a quiet and peaceful political existence. Meanwhile the Social Democrats were the sole party to vote no. They knew it didn’t matter how they voted, but they were resolved to go down swinging on principle, even though it meant Buchenwald.

    Socially most people don’t want to be involved in other people’s problems. Especially when getting involved makes you disappear, and their problems aren’t your problems, anyway. The reality is most of this went on, because most people didn’t want to be in the crossfire when Hitler raised the stakes with on the ground Paramilitary action.

    I never even noticed Bethesda’s games had writting.

  • Palpatine

    Why does everyone think the new one’s gonna be bad? Is it because of that one scene from the trailer with Chris Pratt on the motorcycle with the raptors? Give me a break. I don’t expect it to be as good as the first one, I just want it to be a fun film.

  • Morrowind had much better writing. Possibly because it had different writers.

  • Angelo

    The movie is gonna be silly.
    The big question is: is it gonna be silly-good or silly-bad?
    We’ll see.

  • fred

    I’m not going to see it because I’m not interested. You’re supporting the film if you pay for a ticket; like all those internet critics griping about Twilight, who payed to watch all of them.

  • Palpatine

    I honestly hope it’s silly. The first one had its share of silly moments.

  • Angelo

    That’s the Spielberg’s touch: part wonderment, part silliness. And it works.

  • Palpatine

    I just hope the film doesn’t go too far with the silliness.

  • Angelo

    The problem is that today special effects aren’t that big of a deal anymore, it’s difficult to really amaze your audience now. Especially with dinosaurs that have been done to death (really no puns intended).

  • Sully
  • Palpatine

    From what I’ve seen from the trailers, the effects in the film don’t look any better or worse than the effects in any other film. What surprises me is that the first one, a film from 1993, has effects that still look good to this day, and look better than most modern films.

  • Angelo

    I am no specialist of the political intricacies of Hitler’s rise to power (although I read Kershaw’s biography a few years ago), so I can’t go into those details with you.
    There is not one simple way to explain an event like Hitler’s rise to power. Oviously multiple factors converged.
    My point was just to reestablish the importance of the economical realities behind the ideological surface. I’m no marxist fanatic but I think people have a tendency to forget that aspect, which I think is crucial.

  • Palpatine

    I’ve got my bloodhounds ready.

    I want it to be good. If the score at Rotten Tomatoes is “Fresh” and average rating is above 6.5, I’ll be satisfyed.

  • Angelo

    Bastards! They know what strings to pull.
    I’m weak.

  • Palpatine

    Even if the the film gets good reviews, the only opinion’s that matter are those of Mike and Jay.

  • Angelo

    Fake, Jack isn’t there.

  • Angelo

    The last movie of this director was received with critical acclaim, so hoping is permitted.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    The raptor pack with the motorcycle doesn’t bother me at all. In JP’s reality it’s been established that raptors are smarter than primates, dogs or dolphins (which is not “real world” scientifically accurate, but in-movie it is), so they should be “trainable”. Besides, we all know the raptors will turn against the humans anyway.

  • Red Skeleton

    ………….. OH HAI, Red Letter Media Commentators! I didn’t know it was you.

    To commemorate the TEARING APART of TheManhole I’ve decided to show my favorite movie in the room…. The Room.

    Come in and watch it with all my friends at 21:00 GMT in TheManhole…. unless you’re chicken. Cheep-cheep-cheep-cheep-cheep!!

    Hi Doggy.

    Anyway, how is your sex life?

    Yes. This.

    Dude that’s like… the Holy Grail of bad movies!

  • WhatPlanetAmIOn

    Are Pre-Recs intended for an audience?

    it seems to me that you’re the EXPERT, Ang!

    Both.

  • WhatPlanetAmIOn

    I know of several ways to interpret your answer.

  • omnipotent

    J. Michael Straczynski and the Wachowski siblings have made a Netflix Original sci-fi series and this is the first I’ve heard about it?!

  • Palpatine

    What’s it called?

  • TapewormBike

    Something something 6 I thing. It looks Cloud Atlasy from what I now.

    OK, it’s Sense8

  • Palpatine

    I never really cared for anything made by the Wachowski’s. Sorry!

  • Angelo
  • Sully

    Sense8 or some such strangeness. It’s supposed to follow 8 strangers from different cultures that somehow become “connected” after some event.

    ETA: It begins streaming on the 5th June.
    I just hope it’s not more of that episode-a-week shit like Between, which is a horrible show, btw.

  • TapewormBike

    I like bunch of their stuff, but I’ve never been that fanatic. Not seen Saturn Waking Up yet.

  • omnipotent

    They usually get the visuals to look fantastic. Hopefully JMS has brought some serious storytelling into this.

  • Palpatine

    They pretty much ruined their reputation after that God-awful Speed Racer movie.

  • TapewormBike

    Eh, I kinda like Speed Racist.

  • omnipotent

    Speed Racer? But I don’t even know her!

  • TapewormBike

    I don’t think I have seen or read much of Straczynski’s work. Never watched Babylon 5. I have Rising Stars, but didn’t get to them.

  • Sully

    I didn’t mind Speedracer. It’s exactly what a live-action anime movie should be; over-the-top acting, bright colors, insanely unrealistic action, and doe-eyed western white folk.

  • Sully

    Then you’ve finally come to realize just how next level this fox truly is. You’re welcome.

  • Palpatine

    That’s what that stupid Dragonball movie that came out a few years ago should’ve been like.

  • Sully

    But it wasn’t.

  • Palpatine

    I don’t even watch Dragonball and I know that movie sucks.

  • TapewormBike

    You could say it…sucks scrotum. Wait…

  • Red Skeleton

    That’s 90 minutes from now.

  • Sully

    I saw about 13 seconds of it on cable once. It was incredible. It was also opposite day.

  • omnipotent

    Why not BST? Do you live in Iceland?

  • omnipotent

    So eight characters who can sense each other’s thoughts? I’m betting none of them are of the LGBT kind since that would just be too icky.

  • I’m not surprised, Palpy. If the Wachowskis hadn’t killed off their own franchise Jorge style, nobody would have remember you or Star Wars. (Hyperbole)

    The only form in which anything DragonBall related is palatable is DragonBall Abridged.

  • What’s BST? Bullshit time? Ba-dun-tsss!

  • I think we’re past that already. But I guess everyone has their own threshold of suspension of disbelief.

  • TapewormBike

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay past.

  • Some food for thought: If Jay is confirmed for gay, should it surprise us that he always plays the straight man in RLM skits?

    RACIST! Wait… is gay a race? Is transgender a race? What are Caitlyn Jenner’s thoughts on transgenders being a race? Who cares what Caitlyn Jenner’s thoughts are?

  • Sully

    Rich is confirmed for MLB Gay, so…

  • Jack took the picture. You might not have noticed. But your brain did.

  • TapewormBike

    A lotta people. Heck, if she didn’t prove to be a compete sell-out again, I would.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    100% guaranteed that’s happening. The fact that they have been hiding the T-rex in every trailer and tv spot points in that direction. Also, they need to make amends for how the T-rex got killed after 3 minutes of screentime in JP3.

  • Sully

    It’s sad when the transgender one in the family has had less surgery than the rest. It’s sadder still when said transgender is also the most authentic one of the bunch.
    Personally, I like Caitlyn. She’s cool people.

  • TapewormBike

    I’m gonna keep my mouth shut on this one. And just for the record, I have nothing against LGBT people.

  • TapewormBike

    Fuck no! (I couldn’t find the right form)

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Rich Evans, he doesn’t give a shit if everyone is supposed to act crabby for the picture.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    There were reports that Legacy Effects (the “inheritors” of Stan Winston Studios) were not happy with how little they were involved with JW. Apparently, the plan was to have more animatronics, but in mid-production everyone else figured CG was the way to go. Mind you, it’s always been like that for JP. JP destroyed go-motion in favor of CGI, and the baby triceratops was never used. TLW removed triceratops and stegosaurus animatronics in favor of CGI. Animatronics use in JP3 was also cut down from what the original plan was.

  • Sully

    Yeah, they’ve purposefully been keeping the T-rex out of sight to make people forget about it. It’s already confirmed in the movie by the SFX team, in fact it’s been confirmed that it’s the exact same one (animatronics and all), so it’ll def play a key role.
    My guess is, the twist will be that the raptors orchestrated the entire jailbreak as a distraction.

    1) He is American and he shares an opinion with like 50% of US citizens.
    2) What he says has been repeated so many times by so many Americans that even your own Jim Jefferies made a point about it (“bringing a gun into a drone fight”). It’s stupid, but hey, maybe not for Americans, I dunno.
    3) I read so many articles about him saying that and it seems like they are turning it into something “big” just because of True Detective. Every article mentioned “True Detective’s this, star in True Detective that”. And I think the best way to see the inappropriate “hype” behind it is to see articles that claim how “extreme” this statement is; but as I said, if roughly 50% of people see it the same way, it can be hardly described as “extreme / extremist”.

    I think it is just some odd, hype-train band-wagon article shitstorm just because slow news days / TD.

    He has a point though. Take the Columbine Massacre for instance. Those guys walked around that school for an hour or so, completely unchallenged, just gunning people down.
    Now imagine if a few of the teachers were packing heat. How many kids might’ve been saved.

    It doesn’t take a lot of heroics to shoot someone before they shoot you.

  • Sully

    Google images. Just added some text in Power Point and voila!

  • Andrew Thompson.

    the first amendment says i can say the 2nd amendment sucks dicks.

  • tOmy`

    Yea, I see your point and for what is worth I don’t agree with US gun policy… or I find a bit disturbing and silly, especially the reasoning behind it. And not just because I am some pacifist stoner Czech person who believes that the best course of an action is to sip a beer and wait for other countries to fuck up on their own.

    Statistics in America pretty much make me stand by my own opinion on this. You have a kid who bought himself a fucking assault rifle in a Wal-Mart, came to a school and shot dozens of people. And US government blames Marilyn Manson and people start saying: “Yea, but if everyone in the school have their own guns…

    And that doesn’t even scratch the surface. If you have a police patrol stopping in a park and shooting 6 year old for pointing a water gun at them… I mean what the fuck? Sure, the story itself is brutal and horrific, but what really shocks me the most is the “attitude”. You have to see for what it is: These police officers were actually scared that a 6 year old may be packing a gun and he is triggerhappy enough to shoot up a police car. And when you think / are forced to think like this, than you can pretty much paint the picture of what kind of a thinking (or downright paranoia) gun laws create in US.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    or again… just take away guns. i know its hard for americans to understand. but less guns=less gun deaths.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    did you mean to post that to Sully? i’m the slightly less pro gun guy.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    his name is Michael.

  • tOmy`

    You could be right, sure.

    But, quite generally, my point is: Whenever I see some incident like this, you can read opinions from US citizens either pro or anti gun control. What is shocking is that, however, none of them stop to think about, you know… How come this doesn’t happen in other parts of the Western world?

    I guess that pretty much cuts it for me: People taking these incidents as something that sorta has to happen from time to time, something inevitable, something (to some degree) normal and then they argue about who is right and who is wrong. It’s just a weird feeling I am having from these conversations. Something that makes me wanna scream: “Are you even shocked? Because almost everyone else in that particular discussion who is not from US is fucking shocked.” But hey, let’s be honest here, I am not US citizen, I don’t know US constitution, nor the particular amendment and Czech people usually have a very strong opinions about this. I think these conversations are really… just two different cultures.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    Every single western country had Massacare stats equaling america. then we changed our laws.

  • tOmy`

    Nah, I am just saying. I am neither anti- or pro-, I just think the general attitude towards this is pretty fucking stupid. When you get to the point where kids start dying, I think that is pretty much the moment people should re-asses what is needed, not what is right, lawful, given and what is wrong, illogical and proven silly.

  • Sully

    You can’t get rid of guns in this country. It would never happen. Even if every law abiding citizen turned over their firearms to the government willingly, there would still be a river of military grade weaponry flowing into the country through the Gulf of Mexico and Texas borders for any non-law abiding citizen to purchase, and then again, it would be maniacs with guns, while the people are defenseless. It’s easier in Australia, because it’s an self-contained continent nation.
    Our southern border is essentially a permanent war zone where the police and government agencies are essentially out-matched by drug cartels. Hundreds… thousands of beheaded, burned, and bullet riddled people are found along those borders every year.
    And that’s just the known criminal element. Now factor in that only about 19% of Americans trust the government here, and you begin to get a better picture as to why we think holding onto our weapons may be justified.

    All of that aside, I’m totally for deepening the rules and regulations of owning, purchasing firearms, but making them 100% out of reach of the public? Nope.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    as a child i was caught in a traffic jam… as we reached the problem i saw a body under a sheet.
    it was Frank Vitkovic. who after killing 8 and wounding 5 fell to his death.

    i love the engineering behind guns. but i hate the crazy people that use them. and firmly support their being restricted.

    its the Chris Rock school of gun laws.

  • Sully

    I don’t think there’s anything “inevitable” about gun violence. People have had guns in this nation since it’s founding, yet this is only now (in the last decade or so) becoming a serious issue. Why now?
    It has nothing to do with guns, and everything to do with mental health. Personally, I blame the chemicals in our food and water. We’ve got hormones in milk, pharma drugs in our tap water, pesticides, shit being sprayed in the air; add on top of that the push for pharma drugs by doctors these days.
    There’s a direct correlation between the rise of violence in America and the rise in the use of Ritalin and other similar drugs. That’s the issue here. Firearms are just a means to an end, and the fact that people are eating one another, stabbing one another, running people over with cars, is proof that taking guns away wouldn’t stop the violence. If someone wants to kill, taking their gun away won’t prevent the psychotic break that pushes that mindset, but a firearm may stop them from driving another block, from attacking your kid, or from sticking a knife between your ribs.

    You know when you go to a doctor, and before he prescribes a new med to you, he asks you what other drugs you’re taking so that he can determine if it’s safe for you to take the med he wants to give you?
    You say, “I’m not taking any other meds.” and the Doctor goes “Cool.” and gives you a prescription. Now what happens if the very drug you’re not supposed to take with this new med, because it can lead to a violent temperament, actually shows up in trace amounts in your beef or drinking water?

    We need to handle that situation before we worry about anything else.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    the best part of this is that we all agree that america needs to have better laws. australia is going over the top. and tOmy likes stirring the pot.
    it needs more garlic.

  • Andrew Thompson.

    And now back to 911…

  • Sully

    For $10k you could buy an arsenal out of Mexico.
    I have an AK-47 that I bought a few years ago. It cost me around $600 (before tax), and about another $100 in shipping.
    I had to go through so much legal paperwork to get that thing, making sure it was mailed to a licensed vendor who could sign off for it (making both him and me liable for the transaction), and then I had to get a permit to own it. It was a pain in the ass.

    For $400 I could’ve bought the same gun from the trunk of a guy’s car, and it wouldn’t of been registered to me.

    I’ll admit that Gun Show purchases are an issue, and I’ll admit that folk that subscribe to the Appalachian Werewolf stories probably shouldn’t be roaming the wilds of Tennessee with M4s, but other than that. I see no issue with people owning firearms.

    discharging a firearm in a pressurized tube is not a good idea… i would suggest a pistol crossbow.

  • tOmy`

    I am not that great when it comes to general knowledge about US, but here is my take on it:

    You have an incredible amount of people from vastly different cultures, countries, sexual orientations and opinions. Texas is building a wall, minorities create mafias and gangs, bikers paddle meth, police is not respected but feared, you have xenophobic, racist and homophobic people living in cities next to Muslims, Mexicans and gay people. You have a massive homeless problem, you have a massive education problem. People claim they need weapons to protect themselves against government or intruders, you ban sex in TV but war is more than okay. Everyone is terrorist. You have neo-nazi rednecks sharing countries with african-american gangs.

    And all the people / groups I just mentioned are allowed to have guns. Now I am not saying that this is all there is to US. Not at all. These are just examples of things happening “over the big pond”. And you arm all these people. Or give them right to get weapons. Now I am not a betting man, but if I was, I am pretty sure what would be my bet on “where is the shit gonna hit the fan again.”

  • Sully

    You shoot the window next to the guy holding the “Box Cutter.” Hilarity ensues.

    It’s worse than that. My state (North Carolina) is holding a vote this week to determine if Judges are allowed to circumvent their Constitution duty to uphold Civil Rights, if those “rights” conflict with their religious beliefs.

    This is a nation that was founded on the idea of “Separation of Church and State.”

    Me too, if think it’s just that people don’t care about Broken Age or texty-type adventure games.

  • TapewormBike

    Oh holy fuck, Jason Aaron is an amazing writer. Btw, Solo being married was mentioned before, in some earlier SW draft he had to deal with his father in law.

  • Angelo

    That’s why Lucas scripts and stories were constantly rewritten.

  • Palpatine

    What else has he written? Or were you being sarcastic about him being an amazing wirter?

  • TapewormBike

    Scalped. Run, don’t walk.

  • Sully

    Yes. Obviously. I mean, just 10 seconds into the trailer and we’ve already got our first racist stereotype. 30 seconds in and we’ve got our first non-sensical plot point. It’s gonna be great.

  • Sully

    Even if you apologize? If they take your skates, do they apologize?

  • TapewormBike

    Well, yea, noone is saying they weren’t shit drafts. I kinda like the idea anyway. If you don’t do anything interesting with the group dynamics, you’d just be playing with action figures instead of writing a story.

  • TapewormBike

    There are many “sorry”s to be had.

  • Palpatine

    I’ve never seen the first one and I never will.

  • Angelo

    If only someone had done some rewriting on the prequels… except Damon Lindelof.

  • TapewormBike

    They’re stuck with that, but it seems that they plan to ignore as much as they can.

  • Angelo

    God is talking through you.

  • Angelo

    I’m actually pretty excited with The Force Awakens. I don”t know, maybe its the Mad Max success that is giving me good vibes or something.

  • Tyson Gray

    I find it odd how Jack hasn’t really played any adventure games before… the couple of ones we said he had played I don’t even really count as proper point and click adventure games.
    Seems like Rich was a little more up on the genre, with Space Quest, BUT he kept saying, “you got a Tim Schafer game” without that really meaning anything, as Broken Age isn’t really anything like the previous classic Tim Schafer involved games – Grim Fandango or Full Throttle, Monkey Island, etc.
    I get the impression Rich hasn’t actually played any other Tim Schafer adventure games.

    I would have thought those classic LucasArts and Sierra adventures would be the sort of thing these guys would love, as they’re games that have such great, funny puzzles and gameplay that is perfectly mixed with the characters, settings, and plot.
    I hope Broken Age doesn’t put them off playing any future adventure games.

  • Sully

    I’d suggest an in-film sponsor-related drinking game, but I don’t really need that on my conscience. Especially after all the abortion and slave jokes I’ve made today.

  • Palpatine

    Honestly, out of all the Happy Madison actors, David Spade seems like the least annoying.

  • TapewormBike

    Jack grew up on a farm, the biggest adventure for him was to live the live of hard work and small rewards. Those were the good days.

  • Angelo

    From their Pre Rec videos, Jack and Rich don’t strike me as video games spcialists. But I don’t care that much about that.
    And their The Order review was spot on.

  • TapewormBike

    We’ll see, we’ll see. It will be, if anything, pretty to look at.

  • Sully

    Hard work and Small Rewards.
    I think I saw that on a poster at the sperm bank.

  • TapewormBike

    Ejaculate is funny.

  • TapewormBike

    Jack, Rich and Jay walk into a bar……damn, the slashfic game is tougher than I thought.

  • Snake Squeezer

    I liked What We Do In The Shadows a lot. It was hilarious, most of all. Not really scary, except for the first few seconds when we meet Peter. The ending was really weak though. It could have used some kind of over arching conflict with a good resolution. The love story with Katherine, and the dealings with the werewolves were trying to be that, but never really quite got there. I didn’t care about Stu, either. What was to care about? His character seemed to lack any personality at all and his role seemed to be looking apathetic about everything somewhere in the background.

  • TapewormBike

    Blood red Moon out tonight. Someone is watching Grown Ups and laughing.

  • its called bleach

    honestly, out of all the cancers, lung cancer seems like the one that would suck least

  • Palpatine

    So who is the lung cancer of Happy Madison?

  • its called bleach

    i think sandler and the fat guy are testicle and butt cancer since they seem to make the most movies

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Plinkett never reads the comics or books. Can it be canon when Plinkett isn’t aware of it?

  • Monsters.

  • Sully

    Only Adam Sandler… and maybe his accountant. Meanwhile his mother has started a GoFundMe page for retroactive abortion research.

  • Snake Squeezer

    They immediately all start trying to kill eachother….

  • Buk Pravon

    Because, as far as I can tell, noone here did this already, I want to point out, that there is a bunch of very good point and click adventures from Daedalic.

    Broken Age reminded me in its humor and cuteness especially of the two “Edna & Harvey”-adventures.

    Jan Müller-Michaelis made those and some more. For example the “Deponia”-trilogy.

    Here the opening song from the first “Deponia” (sung by Jan Müller-Michaelis), just to give you guys a small taste. 😉

  • Earth

    On closer inspection it doesn’t look nice. It looks like they haven’t improved their game engine in four years. Seriously, look at the character models. They haven’t changed at all and are as stiff as ever.

    It bothers me that they’re going with the War Never Changes line again when Lonesome Road gave the phrase a nice conclusion.

    Also, the copy paste of Fallout 1 with terrible writing was Fallout 3. It’s actually amazing how predictable Bethesda have been.

    The one thing I couldn’t have predicted was that they would give the main character a voice. That is literally the worst thing they could ever do. Jesus. I really hope that that was just for the trailer.

    9/11 was a hack fraud.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    There are even states that even have laws that prevent local governments from passing civil rights legislation. Michigan nearly passed a law that would allow an EMT from abstaining from treating an LGBT patient based on ‘religious preference’.
    Edit: The gun thing stems from a failed attempt to require background checks at the Federal level when purchasing a gun, forcing prospective gun owners to wait a whole five days before getting their Rambo-on.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I think you could do better in New Hampshire which along with no background check for private gun sales has no sales tax.

  • Noah R.

    Too true. I know some people (unfortunately, our future leaders and my generation) who vape simply because they want to look rebellious without actually being rebellious. It’s fairly amusing to see them puffing on a vaporizer like it is some sort of status symbol. If nothing else they do it to entertain the rest of us haha

  • Sully

    It’d be “cooler” (if they’re reading this) if they fed themselves to lions and/or sharks.

  • Sully
  • Noah R.

    What does the Sully say!?!

    Unfortunately, none of them are probably reading this- hell, they don’t even know what RLM is. We are a whole level of coolness higher than them, and that is saying something 😛

    Not anymore. He was voted out and I got elected to take his place. He died then.

    “Voted out” is code for being tossed down a shaft, isn’t it?

  • Noah R.

    It is unless you have read any of the 274 books regarding alternate explanations for his death.

  • It looks like a game with an outsized feminist influence.

  • Palpatine

    But one of the playable characters is a man, and in the eyes of FeministFrequency, that automatically makes the game sexist.

    i wish people would stop using starwars to wipe their arses, then waving shit covered paper and calling it canon.

  • Its nice to see colour in the game and cities. Also nice to see that Winamp is powering the game (2:30)

    Have to agree about the concerns about story telling but I can settle for a “Skyrim” game with a rich and well themed world. I hated the story in Skyrim in general and did not even finish the final part but enjoyed the in depth world.

    I think that this could become something new and refreshing for the entire genre.

    Whats that WinAmp? You want to sing me a song?

  • Drain

    Giant waste of money this was. For the millions that they basically ripped everyone off for they should be giving the game away. I bet half the money wasn’t even spent on the game. To be even more greedy, they’re splitting it into parts. They’ve lost all credibility with me. All this for an adventure game with bland uninteresting characters and “puzzles” so simplistic a child could blindly guess click their way through the game. Seriously, go get the Deponia games instead.

  • Ogrot

    Actually if you paid attention to the episode you would have realized he said, “You got a Tim Schafer adventure game.” And continued to explain that Tim Schafer Adventure games were noted for great art style, great characters, and humorous stories and dialogue, great voice acting, and not so much on great puzzle design.

    Now I’ll elaborate as to why Rich is spot on.

    Now Grim Fandango and Full Throttle were Tim’s IP and were generally auteur’d by him. Meanwhile in Monkey Island he was a cog in the machinery of Lucas Arts, was not the lead designer nor the creator of the IP, he was part of a collaborative effort. And if you look at just those two games that really have his stamp as the lead dev you see Rich’s principle holds pretty true. Full Throttle’s puzzles were child’s play easy and Grim Fandango’s were generally fetch questie or suffered from late era point and click obtuseness for the sake of obtuseness. They were simply obstacles that you endured because you were interested in what the fuck was going to happen with Ben and Manny. It is not the gameplay that gathered accolades for these games. It was the art style, the overall characters and story, the sense of humor, and the voice acting (Roy Conrad and Mark Hamill turned in great performances as did the entire cast of Grim Fandango). And ultimately that is what a Tim Schafer adventure game relies on, so it’s not surprising that a flat performance from a main character takes the wind out of the sails. It is by design that Tim Schafer games rely on great dialogue, interesting characters and plot, and great art design to entice you to endure lackluster puzzles, but if that’s the plan you can’t overlook delivery.

    In short, before Telltale there was Tim Schafer. And if Tim Schafer ever decided to make a cartoon on CN I would watch the shit out of it.

    I had this discussion with many engineers and architects, regarding both the planned demolition aspect and whether the building can be brought down by a plane. I don’t think I have ever heard a straight answer, there is always a lot of mabies or contradictory opinions.

    For what is worth, the official statement still lacks a lot of explanation towards funding, Pentagon and, especially, how in the name of fuck can this happen in the first place.

    I know you can get some preemptive shots for specific kind of an allergy and basically go pills-free for the rest of the summer, but I didn’t bother yet. I stand by my opinion: There is nothing that a cup(s) of coffee and a pack of cancer-causing nicotine cannot make better.

  • TapewormBike

    Oh you should go. It’s fun, they poke the underside of your arms with tiny needles containing allergens and then you have to sit there with them stretched out, while the shit that you are actually allergic to starts itching, but you cannot scratch it.

    Actually Han Solo being a deadbeat husband isn’t a new idea at all. It dates as far back as the Star Wars holiday special when Lucas came up with the idea that the stormtrooper Han Solo awkwardly trips over a railing was none other than Father in law, Gorboobanoobis. It was subtly hinted that Han was pretty troubled over having done this as evidenced by his lack of engagement in Leia’s sonorous aria about life day. He was obviously distracted by the possibility that his wife would never forgive him, but was perhaps comforted by the fact that she would no longer edit his home movies to “save” them from being utter garbage. She was so stifling to him creatively that he ran off to become a roguish space smuggler that dated cocaine addled princesses.

    I don’t get the hype about not having a Facebook account anymore. I am not FB’s biggest fan, but it is more than practical. You have a newsfeed and an instant, free, somewhat sophisticated-ish chat at hand.

    It just takes some tinkering with it (cca. 5 minutes) to make it just your average annoying but useful site.

  • WhatPlanetAmIOn

    Speaking of Fallout 3:
    I don’t think we should be all harsh on it. Bethesda did make a game that’s inferior to F1 and F2 but they did that not out of lack of skill. They did that because making a regular quality game was their intention and, I presume, only choice. (maybe they could make a smaller game for a more specific audience whithout financial losses, I’m not an expert on anything)
    And, you know, they did a pretty good job. Its a quality game for what it’s trying to be. It had most of the superficial qualities of a Fallout game, decent mood and design, ok gameplay and fine music. They tried new things and had modest amounts of fun with the material.
    It doesn’t quite begin to compete with first two games, but it does not look miserable in comparison either.

  • tOmy`

    I wouldn’t mind Fallout going back to it’s roots, ditching that somewhat-competent & sometimes-awkward FPS system.

    Just make a massive map with shitload of possibilities, cities, characters, side quests. Put a nice coat on it and let it be. Every hour not spent on creating dazzling 3D visuals could be spent on proper writing and storytelling. I think you could still achieve a nice balance between “newschool” players going in for it just for the story and atmosphere and oldschool players going in for it just because it is the game they love.

    Seeing Oblivion and Skyrim, I always feel like Bethesda let themselves get carried away by the visuals and, ironically, creating a game that is both visually more boring and storyline-wise less interesting than Morrowind.

    Actually, that is a tip I would give to many game creators: Keep it simple and focus on what is important. (Just saying this makes me wanna flip off new NFS games again.)

  • Red Skeleton

    Well so far TheManhole and TheEscapehole appear to be coexisting alright. I’m trying to keep a finger in each hole, though I hardly have enough time to dedicate to one, nevermind two.

  • Red Skeleton

    I’m currently watching The Room while the soundtrack to Predator plays over the footage. It’s surprisingly good.

  • Palpatine

    Two Holes, One Purpose.

  • Red Skeleton

    I see you snubbed both The Room AND Predator. You’re a hard man to please, Palpy.

  • Palpatine

    We watched The Room the other day, and I’ve seen Predator before.

  • Red Skeleton

    Both are worthy of being watched multiple times. At once. But fair enough

  • Palpatine

    Do you think The Room has become an overrated bad movie?

  • Red Skeleton

    It’s more interesting when you understand the process behind it. Similar to how Phantom Menace is such a clean slice of George Lucas’s mind, The Room is almost purely the product of Tommy Wiseau’s misogynistic, antisocial mind. He understands that there are good movies but he doesn’t understand what makes them good. Hell he doesn’t understand what makes them movies. And similar to… uh…. what was it… Horny Nurse movie (Samurai Cop?) It’s largely a product of what (coincidentally?) a foreigner thinks SHOULD be in American movies.

  • Palpatine

    Do you think we should have a theme night?

  • Domo

    Once I got to thinking about it, The Room kind of a sad movie, at least to me.

  • Red Skeleton

    Though to answer your question.. I think the Rocky Horror aspect has been forced upon it by overzealous fans, but the lines from the film are PURE memetic gold.

  • Jay Stein

    I’m a two-hole man myself

  • Red Skeleton

    It is the story of a man who thinks he is happy but is slowly betrayed by all the people who he thinks are his friends. It has a tragic air to ilt because it was largely inspired by Tennessee Williams’s works. Tommy Wiseau knows good movies and good acting when he sees it but he is completely clueless about how to emulate it or capture it on film.

  • TapewormBike

    It’s just laziness. I do have Twitter account, so much for being cool

  • Red Skeleton

    Sure, why not? Have somethign in mind?

  • Red Skeleton

    BTW Domo I see you are level 4. Do you have banning/unbanning privileges?

  • Domo

    But after reading The Disaster Artist, I looked at the film as what Tommy Wiseau wanted in his life but didn’t have.

    Even if the idea came from someplace else, that’s all I can see. The little snippets are funny, but the movie in its entirety makes me sad.

  • Palpatine

    Well, Jurassic World comes out next week, so, dinosaur night?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I got the results of the test back – I definitely have breast cancer.

  • Domo

    Only Tomy, I think.

  • Red Skeleton

    ok thanks

  • Domo

    You must be dead by now. Destroy what’s left of you.

  • Red Skeleton

    Fuck off, soon-to-be-ghost!

  • Red Skeleton

    I think the man is a sociopath, in the can’t empathise way, not the serial killer way. Possibly as the result of the car accident that was alluded to. He’s a complete asshole to people, so it’s hard to feel sympathy for him, but is it possible he simply can’t control himself?

  • Domo

    I don’t know. I remember watching The Best Worst Movie, then watching the HiTB episode of it, and that feeling Mike had with “The audience is making fun of him, but he thinks they love him” is just how I felt with this film.

    It could also be that it’s been so hyped in ways other funny bad films haven’t, that I’m looking at it in a weird way. I almost wish I never read The Disaster Artist, and just watched the film with a clean slate.

  • Red Skeleton

    I have nothing to contribute from my own collection to that (except for Godzilla 1998 which IMO counts, but I digress). However if you pick a time frame I’ll “book” the room and if you get me links I’ll build a playlist and put it up at specified time. I can’t promise I can sit through the whole thing though.

  • Red Skeleton
  • Palpatine

    I was thinking we could watch the films that weren’t watched in the dinosaur themed episode of BotW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4pJL1eAh00#t=45s

  • Red Skeleton

    Prehysteria 2…. Dinosaur City…. Super Mario Bros (!)…. Dennis The Menace…? You realize 3 out of 4 of those are LITERALLY kids movies?

    But pure coincidence, I have seen all of them.

  • Palpatine

    Doesn’t mean we can’t still make fun of them.

  • Red Skeleton

    Ok, but if we’re doing a dinosaur KIDS MOVIE night then there’s no way we are NOT watching this during an intermission. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNeAINi9omo

  • Red Skeleton

    Well you’ve got my interest though er, I’d be VERY surprised if anyone’s uploaded some of those videos.

  • Palpatine

    If anyone can find Prehysteria, Adventures in Dinosaur City, and Dennis the Menace: Dinosaur Hunter, then feel free to add them.

  • Red Skeleton

    I found Prehysteria. (But it’s Prehysteria 2 in the BotW video, technically)

  • Red Skeleton

    Curiosity is getting the better of me… I might have to go to a certain, er…. Bay…. full of Pirates scum and villainy JUST to see if anyone would bother to put that up.

  • Palpatine

    I think it would make more sense to watch the first movie first. If we watch the second one first, then we’d confused, and I don’t like being confused while watching a movie.

  • Red Skeleton

    Palpy you are giving 90’s VHS kids movies WAY too much credit to suggest they would have continuity.

  • Red Skeleton

    Oh my god…. Adventures in Dinosaur city is a go…. Ok, I HAVE to be there to see the room’s reaction to the in-movie theme song.

    Dennis the Menace Dinosaur Hunter and Prehysteria 2 are….. well we are not going to get any help from pirates let me put it that way.

  • Red Skeleton

    I’d suggest adding Lost in Dinosaur World 1993 to the list if I could find it, but I can’t….. Uh, well we’ve got Prehysteria 1 and Adventures in Dinosaur City, both of which are worthy of watching in the Manhole. If you want to set an event, just name the date and time and I’ll put the links up, if nothing else.

  • Red Skeleton

    Tomy, can you hear me?

  • Palpatine

    Those sound good. So how does 23:00 GMT sound?

  • Red Skeleton

    When’s that? I DON’T KNOW HOW TO FUCKING CONVERT GMT BECAUSE I’M A LAZY CUNT!!!

  • Red Skeleton

    *cough* I mean, yeah that sounds good. I won’t be around for much, though, because that’s midnight here. Wait, you don’t mean tonight do you? No, you mean next week, right.. .waht day?

    Sorry if I disappeared again guys. I recently fell into a great sleep because a friend of mine told me to watch all of Yu Gi Oh on Netflix and he’ll pay me $100.

  • Palpatine

    How was your heavily censored anime?

  • Hank_Henshaw

    You are going to be fed that pig-slop, like it or not.

  • One day they will crown you king!

    Thanks Foxy

  • dejectedchuckle

    He was a good friend.

    Not to be cynical but I am wondering what Disney will do when they’ve finished plundering the original trilogy of all it’s iconic characters and imagery. I know (assume) they’re building new material with the new trilogy but I wonder if they are going to touch anything from the prequels because it really does seem like those movies are the 800 pound elephant in the room when it comes to Disney’s new directions with the franchise.

  • They’ve sure sure come along way since the Lucas-reign.

    Que that song with the dancing andmoney lyrics.

  • Palpatine

    I honestly have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, we finally get to see a film about one of the few likable characters from the Prequels and is going to played by one of the few good actors from the Prequels. But on the other hand, they have to make this an entire trilogy, and can’t just make it a stand-alone film.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Finally! I needed resolution to that whole ‘Qui Gon’s Ghost’ thing.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    What will they do? Crossovers with their other properties.

    Wall-E meets the Droids.
    Starlord vs Han Solo vs Indiana Jones, starring Chris Pratt in three roles!
    Princess Leia joins the Disney Princesses.
    etc.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    … but Obi-Wan is supposed to be on the lam. How are they going to justify an action adventure trilogy between episode 3 and 4, when he is supposed to be laying low to remain undetected by the Empire forces?

    If I were a SW fan I’d be annoyed with this.

  • Palpatine

    That’s exactly my point. Just make it a stand-alone film. And I’m pretty sure it’ll make it’s money back.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    It’s trilogy or bust these days. Preferably connected to a Shared Universe (they got that covered for this one).

  • Jay Stein

    I’m sick of it all

  • Hank_Henshaw

    it’s like them talking now of a Jurassic World Cinematic Universe. What da fuck?! Let’s wait and see how this new movie is, before thinking of trilogies or spinoffs. What could a Jurassic Park spinoff be about?

  • Palpatine

    Jurassic Park: The Adventures of Ian Malcolm.

  • Jay Stein

    Prehistoric Mammals

  • Domo

    I want Princess Leia and all the Disney Princesses to ride raptors while the Indominus Rex leaps out of the Sarlac Pit to kill the evil Board of Directors over at Paramount. Lindelof can be the bait.

    If you’re gonna do crossovers with various properties, go all out!

  • dejectedchuckle

    97 episodes on Netflix, that’s like… a dollar and three cents per episode.

  • Jay Stein

    That might be the sole reason for me to watch an Obi Wan-centric story

  • dollar store cashier wife

    no thanks

  • Jay Stein

    Oggie Ben Doggie

  • Trilogy! and! all the money back day one at the box office.

  • I’d watch that. Throw in some Tom Hardy and I’m game.

  • Palpatine

    Who would Tom Hardy play? Dr. Malcolm? I want Goldblum back in the role.

  • No I was thinking sidekick. Goldblum is the lead and Shinzon is the opposing bald villain. Another research park ready to open. Things go wrong again but this time thanks to Ian because he wants to blow up the park so that no more people get killed. Dinosaurs escape. Shinzon is on the case. He could gun down dinosaurs with heavy duty machine guns. You know you dont send a sniper rifle team to fight dinosaurs you send a private army. Mercinaries armed to the teath. Tight security with turrets and mortars and stuff. And a failsafe selfdestruct island with small nuke device.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Tom Hardy is like a foot shorter than Goldblum. So, no.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    So, the next HitB… next week for Spy and Insidious 3? or in two weeks for JW? Place your bets!

  • Very good review. Wish critics would use that schtick for Hollywood schlock.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Funny and painful at the same time. It’s like The Room mixed with Happy Gilmore

    My biggest problem with the Pokemon anime was the insane amount of filler. And from what I understand, most anime’s have filler, which is why I rarely get into them.

  • Palpatine

    Why couldn’t they just call them rice balls?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    The real question is why didn’t keep that episode with tons of cleavage?

  • Palpatine

    And why did they ban that episode that gave kids seizures?

  • Cream-A-Thon

    Excuses for the Movie +5

  • Wizard Phoenix

    You already answered your own question. Why did they ban the one about gun safety?

  • Red Skeleton

    Frape? Or rather, RLMComentrape?

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I see young Obi as a spoiled rich kid who reluctantly teams up with a Jedi to solve his fathers murder and learns a new way of life. Joe Estevez stars as Banjo Mullet, the Jedi Master who teaches young Obi the ways of the Force, love, and Dom-Jot. James Franco is young, wreckless Obi, who at this time has four arms and a faux-hawk, growing up jaded, stoned, and a literal lady-killer. Obi’s father, Primus Panzer, played by Ernest Borgnine, is a pass/fail Sith CEO of a multi-galaxy conglomerate that, among other things, makes dioxin gas. Gats Gazoom, played by Cynthia Rothrock, is Obi’s mom, seen in flashback and in ‘force ghost’ manner once Obi becomes a real life Jedi.

    Practically writes itself!

  • Palpatine

    Hey, when’s our little theme night start?

  • Red Skeleton

    You tell me! I asked you to clarify the date.

  • Palpatine

    I said today, or tonight rather!

  • Red Skeleton

    I thought you said next week, for Jurassic World!

  • Red Skeleton

    Well we can still do it but I’ve not promoted it.

  • Palpatine

    That’s, that’s chaos theory.

  • Red Skeleton

    It’s up to you, now, or another day.

  • Palpatine

    It’s almost 7:00 PM my time, so how does that sound?

  • Red Skeleton

    Palpy I don’t care. This is in your hands. If you want it to happen now, I’ll do it now.

  • Palpatine

    I dunno man, there’s like no one in there now. What the hell happened?

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I could do a ‘wheel’ most any time but not right now.

  • Red Skeleton

    Lol, I dunno, lack of promotion? Bad playlist driving people off? The Escapehole taking them away

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Including porn?

  • Palpatine

    We’re planning a theme night for tonight. To celebrate the upcoming release of Jurassic World, we decided to watch some 90’s dinosaur movies for kids.

    And this time, Palpatine WAS behind it all.

  • Tammy and the T-Rex? Theodore Rex? Spunkosaurus?

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I have never seen a full episode of Pokemon (not a fan of anime). But here’s my take on it, from what I’ve seen:

    Ash and 2 other kids, who change episode to episode, season to season, arrive to a new town. In this new town there is a Pokemon master (also a kid) that has a unique, unbeatable new Pokemon. They fight the new master. The 2 other kids’ pokemons get their asses handed to them. Ash pulls out 2 poke-balls, also fail. Finally he remembers he has Pikachu and Pikachu wins the game. During all this, some older kids with green hair and pink hair, with a cat, try to steal Pikachu by doing Three Stooges comedy skits.

    Next episode they go to a new town and the same thing happens again.

  • Red Skeleton

    Oh I forgot to mention it’s to commemorate that Jurassic whatever movie coming out next week. Yup!

  • Hank_Henshaw

    But that’s the formula of a lot of Japanese entertainment, isn’t it? Many of the old “big robot” anime (I’m sure there is a term for it) had this “ultimate weapon” thing, most often than not a sword, that would one-shot the enemy, but they forget they have it until the very last minute. So they spend the previous 10-15 minutes fighting by using ineffectual methods.

    Samples of this: Voltron, Ultraman, Mazinger Z, Power Rangers, etc.

    Why the fuck did Double Fine need a Kickstarter for this game? Shame on those assholes. Kickstarter and crowd funding stuff should be left to indie devs and people who actually don’t have enough money. It’s not for AAA game companies to get pre-orders on a game they’re only going to make if they can get enough hype generated.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Kickstarter should be used for Kung Fury and Kung Fury alone

    Unfortunately you’ve attached this to my announcement about what was going on at THAT PLACE, something which I feel entitled to do, enjoy doing, and have no intention of ceasing. Until Jay says more than two words on the matter i’m going to wilfully, and reasonably, interpret Jay’s cryptic message as him saying “tone down the drama” not “NO WIRE HANGERS MANHOLE STUFF EVER!!!!”

    Now that said…. yes I did go a bit too far in a few places with the Manhole business yesterday. I had two conversations with Palpatine about an event he wanted to do that probably should have happened somewhere else. Sorry about that, poor judgement on my part…I’m also struggling with a way to get in touch with other mh users (e.g. T0my) that doesn’t involve messeging them here….

  • WhatPlanetAmIOn

    So I tried reading A Song Of Ice And Fire and I did not particulary enjoy it. It felt slightly fanfictiony and the quality of writing was kinda average.

  • Red Skeleton

    Oh, they released a book about that show?

  • Red Skeleton

    I would agree with everything you said if you were talking about any other company, but you’re talking about double fine, who made an absolutely amazing game (Psychonauts) )and got shafted by fans who just didn’t give a damn (at the time, anyway.)

    So… you know what, they get a free pass on using the hype machine. At least for now. If they keep releasing lackluster games then, yeah, screw them.

    Also I don’t think Double Fine quite counts as triple A.

  • tOmy`

    Ironically, this statement will be correct after this season.
