Re: The Videogames Tab

It's not a sign. ;) It's just a small tech problem that you could probably fix in the amount of time you spent writing these posts. But, your call.

Re: The Videogames Tab

I dunno, kinda tough to answer. Maybe the pre-Bethesda ones, honestly.

I would definitely spend some time troubleshooting the problem, playing them in the order you described earlier is definitely...

Re: The Videogames Tab

Can you elaborate on "won't run"? Literally won't, or just runs badly? I still have both and I'm quite sure they're runn-able, though it might require a little bit of tweaking.

Re: The Videogames Tab

I think you're dead on in all respects. Even if F3 and New Vegas are better, it'll hurt them a little to play F4 first.

If you loved Skyrim the odds that you'll like all three are very, very high....

I think everyone thought Goldschmidt was winding down a few years ago, but then he exploded and actually took a step forward, at like 33 or 34 or whatever it was. But maybe it's happening now. Who...

I enjoyed this. Unfortunately, good-not-great, which normally I'd be pleased with but in this case I'd been looking forward to it for a long time. It creates a lot of possibilities and resolves them...

I've got him in my other league, and it's been brutal, yeah.

A little downgrade is reasonable at his age but yikes.

Of course as soon as I say that I realize it's April 20th.

Re: Removing watermarks from videos, best methods?

You're probably not realistically going to get a way to just straight-up remove it, particularly with free software. The best you can probably do is just to blur that tiny bit of the screen, but I...

Late Night With the Devil

This is out on Shudder now, should be on demand soon. I've been looking forward to it for over a year, probably, and finally get to see it tonight.

TCL Phone

Re: TCL Phone

Those old plastic backs can be notoriously tricky to get off, mostly because people are reluctant to "force" it when it resists unless they're positive they're doing it right.

Re: Trap (Shyamalan)

Yeah, good premise. And funny to put the "twist" in the trailer (not that there can't/won't be others).

I think it's good for Shyamalan to focus more on just making thrillers with the occasional...

Yes, I know. I think you've gotten tripped up. Here's the sequence:

First, you excuse these "hosted" films for not doing the same thing as MST3K because of budget:

No, I don't think it's a mere feature, it's fully transformative. Again, most of the humor from MST3K literally wouldn't work if it were not happening at the same time as the film.

Not sure. I assume the idea would be that it'd kind of be a "minor league" spot in practice? I'd be good with that.

I kinda wanna float some very minor category tweaks next season, too.
