  1. This is interesting stuff. I have a friend that loves Ben Affleck as Batman. And he's ecstatic. I don't know how they are going to handle having to actors be batman at the same time. Some people have suggested a multiverse storyline. Storywise I don't mind. I will say that Batman has never really been about science fiction. Yes, there are stories with Batman that are more sci fi oriented but that's never been what makes Batman cool. The reason why we love Batman is because he loves Gotham. He's tough, he's dark, intense, he's the world's greatest detective and he always finds a way to ge
  2. At this point everyone knows that it happens. Especially in a corporate environment. Unfortunately when it comes to art it's much harder to gauge the time it will take to complete a project. I suspect that these delays are mostly the result of a few people at the top that have a certain expectation of quality and just underestimate the tine it takes to get there. And its part of the reason that CD Project Red has been so successful. When you have high standards you tend to produce a high quality product. A studio head can promise or guarantee anything he wants but at the end of the d
  3. Nuggets are a great team but they still have some growing to do. The Lakers have more talent and have seasoned veterans. When you have great talent and experience you have a really good chance to win. Especially in basketball, because of the 7 game series format the better team is going to win almost every time. This Denver team has some really good pieces. I'm excited to see Michael Porter Jr's development along with Denver's core group of Jamal Murray, Jokic and Millsap. The Lakers on the other hand seemed poised to win their next championship. I just don't see Boston or Miami as
  4. Don't look now but the nuggets are down 3 - 1 again! This time to the los angeles lakers. How in the world did this happen again? What are the chances that a team would be down 3-1 in three straight series. This year has been absolutely ridiculous. But what would be even more ridiculous is if the Nuggets were able to somehow come back and actually win this thing. I'll be the first one on record to say that is highly unlikely. But you know its been a strange year. And oddly enough if they were to comeback and beat the Lakers I wouldn't be surprised. The basketball guy in me says its too so
  5. This is really interesting news. As an actor you would think being cast in show this big on the world's biggest platform would be a career move. I wonder why he decided to back out. I did a quick glance at his IMDB profile and I saw Fast 9 listed but that's it. Well whatever the reason I hope he's happy with the decision and has no regrets. https://www.ign.com/articles/the-witcher-season-2-eskel-actor-drops-out-of-role
  6. The screen shots I've seen looks cool but other than that I haven't seen anything that makes me say I want that or I need that now. I guess what I'm saying is there is no hype. And as far as I know no exclusives or that special feature that makes a person want to try them out. Since its Amazon I will definitely be keeping an eye on their new service. From reading comments on the internet, I realized one thing that I didn't consider was the fact that Amazon could swoop in and start buying up gaming studios too. That would make it interesting. If all of the creative talent was concentrated
  7. Lets all celebrate the return of the memory card!😁 We;ve come along ways from 32 mb memory cards we how have 1 TB cards. And its not going to be inexpensive either. $219.99 each. And I don't mind at all. They are requiring proprietary cards be used to ensure that the drives are able to utilize the xbox velocity architecture. Plus with all of the games that I expect gamers will be downloading with gamepass, we are going to need a lot of space. https://www.theverge.com/2020/9/24/21453904/microsoft-xbox-series-x-1tb-expandable-storage-price-219-99

  9. Tyler Herro was amazing. I know Jimmy Butler gets a lot of the credit. But wow. Absolutely nobody expected a rookie to be playing like this in the eastern conference finals. If the Celtics somehow comeback to win this series, I'd be shocked. These Kentucky dudes are showing out. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29957859/tyler-herro-career-night-surprise-many-not-miami-heat-doing-all-year-long

  11. Im not surprised at all. Xbox is pushing for an overwhelming content advantage. They have plenty of cash to do so. This is what Google should have done for Stadia but so far it feels as if they were trying to treat Stadia like their search engine. If you want gamers to use your platform, you have to have the content. https://www.cnet.com/news/how-microsofts-ceo-xbox-head-say-bethesda-will-bolster-xbox-games-pass-lineup/
  12. Seems like they are did some rework on Starfield. It sounds like its all for the better though. I don't want them to rush the game. I'd like to know more about the game in general, but at this point I just want a really good killer game. https://www.ign.com/articles/starfield-received-a-major-engine-rewrite-for-next-gen-consoles
  13. I don't think I've ever seen Dak Prescott look so happy. I mean he was ecstatic jumping for joy after his interview. As always the Cowboys put you on an emotional rollercoaster. But that was some kind of game! and that fumble! Lol, nobody on the Falcons wanted any part of that ball. Its good that they avoided going 0-2 to start the season but they have a huge test in going up against the Seattle Seahawks next game. They won't be able to survive again if they fumble the ball 3 times in the first quarter.
  14. Just wow. Almost nobody saw this coming. Elder scrolls and Fallout are huge franchises and much beloved. Nobody can no longer claim that Xbox is all about Halo anymore. Can you imagine them releasing AAA title after AAA title every single year? That's amazing. I will say this though. I see a lot of game industry websites speculating about exclusivity and how Microsoft has to recoup their investment of 7 billion and to do that they need to release on as many systems as possible. And the whole time all Im doing is watching Xbox gamepass numbers increase month after month. In April Microsof
  15. I rarely feel lost in fiction. It doesn't matter if it's books, movies, shows, video games, poems. But I can tell, after viewing the last few episodes there are some things I thought I understood well that perhaps I only got a piece and now need to go back and view the previous eps to make sure I have the full picture. The nice little info drop by Roswal was pretty good and a bit of a surprise even though it was hinted at. At this point with Subaru's return by death its hard to imagine how he is going to be able to turn things around. He's in so deep and there are so many moving pieces an
  16. Lebron sets another record https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29899984/los-angeles-lakers-lebron-james-sets-record-16th-selection-all-nba-team
  17. So it's official the PS5 will cost $499 and $399 for the discless console. I think that's just about what everyone expected. Next comes the hard part. How will Sony and Microsoft market their new consoles to consumers? I think with the big difference in services being offered, how they choose to market the consumer console experience on their respective devices will greatly influence sales especially since the prices for flagship box is the same.
  18. I must admit this is a pretty good viral vid by Microsoft. And it describes the service perfectly! I would love to see how corporate marketing departments pitch these ads.
  19. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29892721/houston-rockets-owner-says-gm-daryl-morey-job-safe I'll give Daryl Morey credit he is willing to take risks. But its hard for me to imagine that an undersized team like that is going to compete for a championship especially because you have some big guys in the game that are extremely athletic. In the playoffs everyone is good and since its a series not a single game teams have plenty of time to prepare. During the regular season the rockets can really take teams by surprise and feast on traditional teams with their speed and 3 point shooting.
  20. https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/09/14/cloud-gaming-with-xbox-game-pass-ultimate/ I feel like game pass is "going to be a game changer". I've yet to truly embrace mobile gaming. But I could see myself pulling out my phone and maybe streaming a few games via Xcloud when I'm playing "the waiting game" for this that or the other lol. I feel like kids would love the service. These days I see parents just hand kids the phone and they almost sit on top of each watching the one with the phone play games. I was in the barbershop the other day and every little kid in there was playing games on the
  21. Season 2 looks like more of the same with higher production values. I think baby yoda is going to stay like that for awhile because he's such a huge draw. The comedic relief just seems to fit perfectly.
  22. I have to agree with Brian Giannis doesn't seem like the type of guy to send signals through social media. But I do admit, it is curious that he unfollowed on the same day as the meeting. I'm more interested to see what he does when he gets his new contract offer.
  23. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29880362/pau-gasol-wife-honor-kobe-bryant-family-new-daughter-name Congrats to the Gasols. Pau seems like a really decent human being.
  24. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29879962/nuggets-erase-19-point-deficit-stun-clippers-again-force-game-7 I like I'm really starting to like this Denver team. They are a young team with a lot of talent And every round they are competing hard. Historically though it takes young teams a few playoff losses before they finally breakthrough. Game 7 should be fire!🔥🔥🔥
  25. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29880879/tom-brady-picked-twice-including-one-td-tampa-bay-buccaneers-debut It's hard to overcome 2 interceptions. If Tom Brady takes care of the ball, it seems like Bucs would have taken this one. A few of his throws he just overthrew the receiver. It's only game 1 on a new team, lets see what he does game 2.
