    New LEGO Star Wars Slave 1 Set Revealed

    Shit, I bought the 2010 version last year. I might have to spring for this one though... I really like the Slave I ship. Probably get the Millennium Falcon at some point, too.

    UAE Announces Plans for a Mission to Mars in 7 Years

    It'd be great if we competed as a species to make scientific discoveries instead of killing each other. I know it's impossible not to have conflict when a lot of people share the same space, but it would be nice if we could get over ourselves and not kill other people because we don't like what...

    Gamers Uncomfortable with Change, Says EA's Peter Moore

    "Gamers don't like change," he says as free to play games like LoL, Dota 2, and TF2 make boatloads of cash. Not to mention that thousands or perhaps millions of fans will subsidize just an IDEA of a game with kickstarters. "Half the people loved the fact that we were showing well into the...

    Ant-Man Death Watch: Rawson Thurber Reportedly Passes On Director Job

    Disney conceding defeat and letting Edgar Wright make the movie all (most of us, probably) want, would be a sweet, sweet victory.

    Microsoft Offers Xbox Live Gold Refunds

    Same here. It's pretty much the only thing I use my 360 for now days since Netflix seems to crash my computer if played for an extended amount of time. Plus, laying in bed, with my desk across the room, I'd rather switch episodes with the controller than get up.

    Destiny Won't Launch on PC Because it Would be Too Much Work

    "Yeah, that big pile of money over there...with the community that would probably add a lot to our game, we're just really not interested." -Bungie

    The Big Picture: Ranking the Marvel Movies

    It's a been a while since I've seen some of them but my list goes as follows: 9) Iron Man 2 - Not a bad movie, but not really one I feel like I need to see again for my own enjoyment. Only watching it if it's part of a marvel Marathon before the 2nd Avengers. 8) The Incredible Hulk -...

    Researchers Compare Facebook To Disease, Say Die-Off Is Coming

    Back when I was a freshmen starting college, facebook was fun, cool, and entertaining. Now my mom comments on the things I post. If that isn't a reason to quit using it, I don't know what is.

    Carrie Fisher Confirms Star Wars Cast Reunion In Episode VII

    I hope they can get Lando in there too. I'm going to remain cautiously optimistic, but I wish Abrams wasn't directing.

    Cortana Actress Will Voice Microsoft's Version of Siri

    Cortana is hotter but I'd gain much more enjoyment from Glados' passive aggressive insults every time I asked a question. "Glados, where is Taco Bell?" "It's three blocks up on right but you should probably drive five blocks to the gym instead."

    Movies that are actually BETTER than their source material.

    No love (hate?) for The Last of the Mohicans? My parents had me read the book and it took me about three months to get through it. And I was a kid who really enjoyed reading. I found it to be very boring and not engaging at all. The movie on the other hand is up there in my top ten. Superb film...

    Middle-Earth: Shadows of Mordor Screenshots Bring the Grit

    I was going to say the same thing! I really liked the Third Age as well. Granted, I was really into LotR at the time and had never really played an RPG before. Maybe it doesn't hold up but I still have fond memories...

    Honest Trailers Casts Its Eye Upon The Hobbit

    Yeah, I'm going to see The Desolation of Smaug because I used to be a huge LotR fan. Read the books many times along with The Silmarillion and Children of Hurin. Really enjoyed the film FotR and liked TT quite a bit. Then RotK happened and it lost some of it's luster. I can't be the only one who...

    Do people understand that there's a difference between "good" and "different?

    You're English isn't bad, it's just...different. Just kidding, your English is fine. I don't even have a second language that I can be conversational in, much less write in, so you'll get no judgement from me! Anyway, I'm of two minds. On one hand, being different just to be different...
