Probably little to no advertising, seeing as how I’ve never heard of it either. This seems to have released after the original show was over, so I suspect it was sold/in production before the cancellation was known, and it they knew they weren’t going to get very far trying to capitalize on a fading pop culture icon Read more

Cultural phenomenon really watered down what it was. By the end of its run, the original Tales from the Crypt had even seen syndication into prime time. It featured a silly puppet that told jokes with bad puns, so the kids loved it. Hell, the crypt keeper even recorded an album. The game show was just one final Read more

I’ve been gaming for decades. I’ve lost progress to incorrect hand written passwords, others saving over my progress, failed memory cards, unsurvivable save points, game breaking save glitches, corrupted save data, returning rented games, and probably other scenarios that I’ve forgotten.

It never gets any easier.

You know, the part that disappoints me here is not that you were a sarcastic ass in this last response, but the fact that you did so while missing what was literally the perfect opening to end your comment in ellipses.

It’s not a grammar/punctuation issue, though. It’s the fact that you used punctuation that specifically means, “There’s is more to say here that everyone knows to be obvious,” at the end of a sentence that effectively said they made a mistake. It’s not that you used it, it’s that you used it to effectively say, “It’s Read more

Eillipses truncate obvious data. The sentence subtext pretty clearly conveyed the article’s mistake, so adding the ellipsis at the end is just effectively ending with, “It’s obvious you’re wrong here,” which is a really crappy way to point out someone’s mistake.

The alternative is that you could just say what you mean without being a jerk about it. You know, “The way you wrote this sounds like the games out already. It may be beneficial to clarify.”

Yes. A jerk move intended to be a jerk move is generally less offensive than an honest mistake, which at this point has been corrected.

The sentence ends as a complete thought. Inserting ellipses at the end of a complete thought is the jerk move here, regardless of an argument of whether or not it was intended to be grammatically correct.

I think you’re just reading too much into a Rush reference.

I’m not holding them to the same standards. I find a random comment using four dot ellipses to end a sentence (that is a complete thought on its own) to be more offensive than a published article being vague about a release date that is days away.

For perspective, ending your sentence in a four dot ellipsis is a considerably more offensive action than an article that seems to imply that a game is out now, but actually releases in three days.

The cost of the soda is that for the water, carbonation, syrup, and the cup. When you add those together, it comes out to a cost of pennies.

They are forced to add an “Allow an apps downloaded from” option like MacOS. Honestly, this should have always been a core feature of iOS. Read more

I didn’t get too far into WDDD, but I can confirm that it’s certainly much more original Larry (and considerably better) than Magna Cum Laude.

At the end of First Blood, the 1982 movie adaptation of the David Morrell novel of the same name, John Rambo tells his former commanding officer that there’s no turning off the violence he was taught to inflict as a veteran of the Vietnam War. He breaks down. He weeps. It’s a powerful image: the quintessential action Read more
