The original System Shock was the first game that really made my jaw drop.

I mean, Doom was cool, don't get me wrong. But an environment like Doom, but with a story AND horror themes. The...

I had an Apple ][e and an Atari 800, but a buddy of mine had a C64. We would spend quite a bit of time playing Impossible Mission. That was a great game, with some great sound, for that time.

Zombieland ranks as one of my most favorite movies. I'm not normally a fan of Jessie Eisenberg but he was perfect for that particular role and I'll watch Woodie in most anything.

Well, you have to admit, he's got a point. The nuclear brinksmanship of the original wouldn't play as well today. Though, I suppose, with a little imagination I suppose you could turn it into some...

It seems that you're angry that the show picked the third worst people in history, not the first? That sounds like ridicule but I assure you it's not. I'm just trying to understand your concern.

I have to wait until 2021 for more Dr. Strange? Disappointing.

I'll see Black Widow, Strange, Hawkeye, and Thor. The rest I don't really know that well.

The trailer LOOKS like a complete redo of the 1976 movie. Not that that's a bad thing.

I remember that movie playing in a local theater with sensuround. We came out of there shell shocked.

I played these recently. The original Baldur's Gate hasn't aged as well, but Baldur's Gate II and Icewind Dale are still great. I'll pick these up as well.

Butt kicking for goodness!

I’m probably in the minority here but I actually thought Afleck did a really good job as both Batman and Bruce Wayne.

I don’t think Afleck was all that buffed before he got the role either.

Mine as well. I had an Atari 800 and an Apple ][e. I had the C compiler for the Apple. I remember compiling a program and then spending 5 minutes swapping disks in the single disk drive, lol.

Oh come on.

The release of radionuclides at Chernobyl was 100x that at Fukushima.
