Furiosa - 10/10

I love the series, it's amazing how each movie manages to be cool in its own way while being different than the last.

Scream (1981) - 2/10 One of the worst movies I have ever seen. So, badly made.  I was curious what this eclipsed titled movie was going to be like, it had a cool cover, and that is the only reason it gets a 2. The movie is abysmal.

my last attempt to get it kicking again was already 6 months ago.

You and your boyfriends first made the claim that piracy hurts game sales before me.
Your logical fallacy is [ad hominem].

BTW, this started because you first claimed that piracy is morally correct. There's no point in discussing this further when you've Neo-dodged every criticism about the original claim.

Stealing implies someone had something taken from them. Piracy never takes the original game away from the dev, it just makes a copy. You're talking about nintendo like they're a starving indie company when they're the richest company in japan period.
Your logical fallacy is [strawman].

They have sold over 140 million switches, made over 1 billion dollars of profit on software sales and the switch is on pace to become the best selling console of all time. I think they won't lose sleep if a few million pirate their games, especially as the switch has been pirated day one.
Your logical fallacy is [special pleading].

Won't lose sleep? Nintendo literally sued Yuzu into oblivion because of people pirating Tears of the Kingdom.

If piracy hurt sales as you pretend it does, the switch would of failed.
Your (informal) logical fallacy is [false dilemma].

At least someone here comprehends how piracy preserves old games. But tbh yall sound like boomers who bought the "you wouldn't steal a car" anti piracy campaigns, and can't move on and accept that publishers do a piss poor job of providing access to their legacy titles.
LOL, no one was saying otherwise (though there's more nuance than you presented). The difference is you're the only one claiming its "morally correct".

this was the only joy I got out of my logic class.

I never ended up buying a Switch because I was waiting for whatever upgrade was going to come out. It would have been the OLED Switch, but that came out so late I thought  "what was the point?" So, I never bought that either. I pretty much skipped this generation. I got gifted a ps4 in 2017 and just bought up some of the main games there.

At the same time. I have a Wii U. So, it isn't like I missed out on 1/4 of the games that came out for Switch.

It was a weird generation because I turned my room into a Mario room with blue turquoise sky walls and all and played ps4 the whole time. My office room I turned into horror themed.

I just watched Poor Things(well two days ago) and it was great. I love Bella Baxter. I want Bella Baxter action figures.

Why is it Disney(Searchlight Pictures) is making the best Universal Monster movies in recent years? The Shape of Water and now Poor Things.

Lily Gladstone was great, but she didn't say much in the movie, and her lines weren't very memorable. I have not seen Poor things. Gladstone's character was integral to the plot, but she was more of a supporting role than a lead. Even if she had been shifted to supporting actress instead she still would have been beaten by Da'Vine Joy Randolph from Holdovers because she was great. I was thinking Paul Giamatti and her were gonna bang in the movie. But it wasn't that type of movie.

seems like I missed this.

I predict Prime 4 will just be a Switch 2 title.

Likely, that's all Switch 2 will have going for it for the first year. Other than backwards compatibility, and upgraded version of games.

Now the question is will Nintendo name Switch 2 something sensible like Switch 2, or something stupid that confuses people? Did they learn their lesson with the Wii U, or has the success of the Switch made them forget how Wii was successful too before Wii U came out?

It's kind of funny to think that the Switch has been out so long, that there is a generation of kids who don't understand the concept of an upgraded generation.

As far as I know. As long as they're using the same type of vendor for their GPU, upgrading existing games shouldn't be much of an issue. From a market capitalization perspective, Nintendo should stick with Nvidia.

The problem specifically for me (which doesn't affect the majority of people) with copious Switch ports is that I've been around a long time, and have most of the original games available and playable already.

The only problem I see with this is that a lot of old hardware/software is breaking down. As in decomposing. It's unpredictable what is going to last past 40 years. I was watching this video on some old Mac Hardware from 20 years ago that is no longer working or badly corroded. Even if it was kept in immaculate condition .

132.2 million?

Back in the Gamecube days the consoles was doing so abysmally poor and everyone was up on here talking all the time.

That's 6 times Gamecube sales!

At least Gamecube had Eternal Darkness.

TalkBack / Re: Nintendo Announces Development Of Live-Action Zelda Movie
« on: December 05, 2023, 04:54:32 AM »
20 years ago I would have been thrilled to see a Zelda movie.  Today? Eh, Hollywood blockbusters aren't made for me anymore.  I'm just not the target audience.  I see nothing but CG and self-referential quips that appeal to younger generations and it just doesn't appeal to me.  But I'm not really bothered by that either.  As long as the Zelda games remain good, that's all that matters to me.

Very few movies are as good as 100 miles from Hell. Which, I thoroughly enjoyed. If I was a billionaire producer, I'd really like to see what you guys do with a budget.

I'm still ready.

It is cyclical. When Wii U was coming out here was this same sort of doom and gloom over the Wii U, which is surprising because Wii was such a hit. There was really nothing wrong with the Wii U. It just had a stupid name, and people thought it was an accessory. Had they called it the Ninja I bet it would have been a hit.

What is this a 2011 thread and the Wii U is about to drop?

As a Sony fan it's just the PS4. I never moved onto the ps5. I don't have money.  I've been broke since 2017.

Maybe hire the previous Daredevil people and just corral them on how the series is supposed to fit into the MCU and trust them.
