I’m curious where those headlines have been, but it’s typically true. Gold just means they have the file they’re putting on disk. Traditionally, the gold disk was the master disk used to make all the copies (I don’t know if it is still gold). No changes can be made to that code, as it is what is used for production. Read more

1) That explanation WAS included in the original post. It turns out that OP can’t read tweets apparently, which is why they missed it (they replied to themselves later). In which case, they couldn’t see the words; if OP is upset I was snarky about not reading the thing they didn’t see/read, they’ll get over it. Read more

His argument was: “So going gold meant nothing then?” It is a wrong and ignorant argument. He later replied that he couldn’t see the tweet.

The tweet from the developer was what I was talking about. It was posted with a tweet from the developer that laid all of this out. The commenter didn’t bother to read the words in the embedded tweet. Now kotaku has copied out the words. The words were there the entire time. Read more

You know there is a picture with black scribbles on it as part of this article, right? Those black scribbles are words, and address, specifically, this “point.”

That’s a dumb take. They had just had 3 really cool pitches go badly. The best of them was Colonial Marines. Yeah. That’s the best one. They read a pitch for a 4th game and passed. Read more

Oh man are you in for a treat. Bishop Briggs is amazing. Honestly, this song is mediocre compared to much of her stuff.

Okay, so, you claimed I didn’t know how quotation works, but it turns out you just didn’t know what a scare quote was. Rather than admit that, you then attacked the use of them as “weird” for someone who cares about nuanced storytelling. Even outside of the fact that an argument on fucking gizmodo is not storytelling, Read more

Bro, what? Did you just cite my use scare quotes as not understanding how quotation works? Do you just not know what a scare quote is? Let me explain it to you rose has a point, but by putting “point” in quotations, I am making it ironic: her “point” is nonsense in the context of the film, on top of being simplistic Read more

Jesus, dude, you are really bad at understanding how analogy works. No shit the entire casino planet is not the Kentucky Derby. However, one of the attractions is the racing of the animals. The “point” Rose is making is that underneath the gloss, there is darkness, and the example of this is: hey, cool, racing LOOKS Read more

I hear you man, and I must tell you that it even in that context it is painful. Like: SO much worse than the good guys being the light side and the bad guys being the dark side.

The argument has never been that there cannot be any reason to think about money, wealth, pleasure, etc. The argument has always been: the casino planet stuff is long, tedious, hilariously on the nose, and altogether poorly done.

No, friend. The casino planet is VERY poorly done. It isn’t because it doesn’t have enough plot, it is that it tries to cram in too much, badly. If you go to the Kentucky Derby with binoculars, you don’t see the handlers shocking the horses. This is only on Canto Bight to be a very simplistic representation. The Read more

While there is absolutely no way to argue against the tedious casino planet complaints, I would point out that, as Luke saw it, he was so overcome with fear of the visions he saw that he momentarily turned on his lightsaber before realizing that this was a terrible idea and reconsidering (too late, Kylo woke up and Read more

That...is not what that link says. At all. Levitating rocks is not: “so powerful that he needed to be away from people so as not to hurt them with the force” it’s simply using the force.

While, yes, it’s also pretty closely following the book (with some very liberal changes at some point), and the book does the exact thing and then tries to neatly tie it all together. If they go the keep-it-going-forever route, I’m guessing that they’re going to finish up with Christina next and do a lodge-by-lodge a Read more
