2013 seems to be The Year of the Resignations, After the abdications of Pope Benedict and Queen Beatrix... It has now been announced that Matt Smith will be quitting the role of the Doctor in Doctor Who (I know itś far less important as the abdication of a pope or a queen)....

I am kind of a big fan of the series (even though I try to avoid the forums and such because I hate the constant complaining and speculating about the show).... I did start wondering if they might hire big name actor John Hurt for the role since {spoiler}he was kind of announced for the role in the season finale a couple of weeks ago{spoiler}, which I would consider completely awesome...

Anyway I thought I might as well create a Forum page for everything related to "Geek Talk...things like Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, My Little Pony (for Oiram) and other such time consuming series/films.... Mainly because I think this forum was lacking it.  

So, let your "Inner Geek" come out here...

I've never seen DR. WHO. But I have spent hours and hours on Forums posting about LOST theories, if that counts.

I am a computer addict, so yeah, you can call me a nerd, and plus, I love good video games. Stuff like Portal, Tomb Raider, Duke Nukem, and Team Fortress 2. Also, I have sadly not seen Dr. Who, but heard great feelings about it. I dunno, I've been living under a rock and haven't watched an episode, so...yeah.

What do you guys feel about the X-Box One (or X-Bone, as some like to call it). I think it's a bad idea. No backwards compatability, no used or lent games*, and what the Hell is up with the watching TV thing? To explain to less geeky people here, you can watch TV on the X-Bone, except you have to have a regular cable package. So, you can either watch it on your TV with your X-Bone on or just watch it on your TV without your X-Bone on and keep your electric bill down. And that's getting into all that "always-on" bullsh*t!**

*OK, you can play them, but it costs a special fee.
**I know that always-on internet connection isn't officially confirmed, but the very thought of them considering it after the SimCity clusterf*ck is appalling!

Tonight's Game Of Thrones was a massive shocker! Every season has an "Oh sh*t, did they really do that?" moment. The first season's was Ned's execution and the second seasons was Theon killing those kids, thought to be Bran and Rickon. I'm not going to go into details, but damn.

I'm not even gonna touch that piece of sh*t-looking console known as the Xbox One or Xbone, whatever you like to call it (it's a god-awful name IMO). The 3 key words that were repeated during their reveal event was: television, sports and Call of Duty. Here's the whole event in a nutshell:
 
 
[TUBE]KbWgUO-Rqcw[/TUBE]
 
 
So far, as a long-time PlayStation fan, the PS4 gets my vote for the stand-out console.
1) Because they say that it is first and foremost a game console and entertainment device second.
2) Sony isn't slapping their core consumers (the gamers) in the face at the moment, unlike Microsoft, who seem to have already done that by focusing on the fact that it is an all-in-one entertainment device instead of a hardcore game console.
And 3) While the PS4 doesn't require to be always online, the Xbox One DOES REQUIRE TO BE ALWAYS ONLINE FOR 24-HOUR CHECKS! Even worser, YOU ARE CHARGED A F**KING FEE TO PLAY USED GAMES!!! It's becoming the PC of consoles and it's a bad way of supporting DRM! This is why EA stopped doing Online Passes!
 
If the PS4 doesn't charge a fee for used games, then the Xbox One is done for and the PS4 will have won the console war. Because, right now, Sony has all the advantages. ALL OF THEM.
I would love to talk more about this, but this is summed up by a great rant from Angry Joe:
[TUBE]9ekOtn7L1N0[/TUBE]
 
Before I go, what's your opinion on Electronic Arts? (or more like Egotistic A**-Holes at the moment) Because they used to be a good company, putting out good games and respecting their consumers. Now, they're one of the worst companies in the world at the moment, being the blatant offenders of micro-transactions, over-priced DLC, turning paid MMOs into free-to-play games, Online Passes (as I stated before, they stopped doing them so that's a sign of improvement), not listening to their customers as of late and rushing out poorly-made games that clearly weren't finished yet (e.g. MOH Warfighter).
Once again, I would love to talk more about this in my next post on this thread. Kudos to Vheid for starting this thread.

I know, right? I assumed that ROBB & CAT would make it until the end of the series. With them dead, the only remaining STARKS are the children. I haven't read the books (and I don't want spoilers from them), but this episode makes me think that, from now on, SANSA, ARYA & BRAN won't care about the Throne anymore and they'll just want revenge. Therefore, it seems like DAENERYS will be Queen.

Though it isn't that likely that the PS4 will have always-online requirements or such draconian blocking of used games, there's still a risk they might, though it's not as grave as with XBOne. On top of that, there's a sliver of a risk that the XB1 may be used for covert spying on everyone, what they watch, what they do in the living room, and if employers really wanted to, they could erase half of their labor forces overnight. (but I doubt they'd find it worth the trouble, plus there's probably a spike in lawsuits waiting to happen). Even so, no XBOX consoles or PlayStation console(s) exclusive franchises have sparked my interest like Super Smash Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Pikmin, which all come from their underrated rival Nintendo. So used game blockage and DRM are not a big threat to my gaming. Alas, I probably wouldn't buy a WII U either if it weren't for the promise of Super Smash Bros 4.

As for the rest of the details on the XBOne, they'd BETTER deliver on their promises of gamers' games at E3, or their fanbase will be wiped away. I think most gamers are interested in the PlayStation 4, with the WII U running a distant second. And trust me on the WII U eventually being worth it. After a few price drops and 5 or 6 major games that we've all come to expect from Nintendo, people will respect the WII U like they respected the 3DS after 15 MONTHS since launch!

Yes, everyone should buy a WiiU (if they want one) after the price drops. When I bought my 3DS, it was literally a week before the price dropped.

Yes, the Wii U does need more units sold.

I will admit, I am a fan of the Need for Speed series. Even after a few missteps in the franchise, I still enjoy them. Criterion really brought back the good in the series with NFS Hot Pursuit 2010 and while it wasn't as good as that game, Most Wanted 2012 still had some fun. Rivals is looking promising as a pseudo-sequel to Hot Pursuit, just hoping Ghost and Criterion don't f**k it up.
 
@GTAHater767 I'm guessing based on your username, you don't like Grand Theft Auto. I'm assuming you're not looking forward to Grand Theft Auto V?

Seems after all the hate Microsoft has received with the Xbone's policies, they've reversed it and will allow used games, plus it doesn't require an Internet connection after you first register it. Either this was their master plan or they're just sucking up to their consumer-base. 

Either way, we still won't forget when Microsoft first butt-f**ked their consumer base with those now-dead policies in the first place.

SchumacherH8r, MWG and I quickly talked about GAME OF THRONES on Twitter. The former said that season 3 was the weakest and I agreed, while MWG disagreed. I've changed my mind after I chose to rank the seasons, like these guys did:

[TUBE]-ZBuAKVLgpo[/TUBE]

I don't think Season 1 is the best because that's the cool thing to say. It's just that it started with a bunch of peaceful lives that were quickly deteriorating, and by the end of the season their lives had gone to sh*t. I'm not a sadist; I enjoyed all the development. The pacing in seasons 2 & 3 is terrible. You can feel that it's based on an un-finished book series and they're just stalling. I'd say season 3 is slightly better than 2 because it has more memorable moments (not just the Red Wedding). Seriously, when season 3 started, I had forgotten about most of season 2.

How about you?

You mentioned the pacing issues of season 2 and 3. That's one of the main reasons why I think the first is the best season. But, the biggest reason is because that season features Eddard's death. I say this because that shows that the show isn't just going to water down the books and this the first time that it's established that no one is truely safe.

This september Netflix will be introduced for the first time in my country (If I go to the website now it just says "Not available in your country)... I do want to sign in to it, but could someone here explain to me how netflix works... How do you pay for films for instance, Can I use Paypal or do I have to use a credit card (which i don't own)? Is netflix only used to rent films or can you also buy them? If you rent something, how many times can you re-watch it (and for long can you watch it)? Is there some sort of admission fee for singing in on netflix?  Please answer...

There's two NetFlix models: streaming and renting by mail. Each cost, like, $8 a month I think. I only use streaming though. I don't know if you can use PayPal though.

HEROES will get a final season. At first I thought it was good news. But the problem is that NBC greenlit it without a planned storyline. They don't even if the original cast members will do it (there's rumours of a whole new cast, with the original cast doing just cameos). Come on! The reason why fans have been asking for it is so that the storylines can be wrapped up! It's not like people want to see more of the show. Not with how the show decreased its quality season by season.

The first season of Heroes sucked. Fans like to pretend that it was good, but just because it sucked less than the other seasons doesn't make it good.

The reason why I think that it's the worst is because it's a perfect example of how not to do a show. They just regurgitated what fans wanted to see over and over. It's important to listen to the fans, but you can't just rely on them exclusively for what to do. That's what Glee did and look at that.* Throw in awful actors (Ali Larter, Milo Ventimiglia, etc.) and hack extraordinaire Jeph Loeb and you've got the worst show of the century so far.

*Glee is my pick for second worst show of the 21st-century.

Actually, the writers did what they thought was what the fans wanted. The whole season built up to all the characters getting together, and they did in the finale. So everyone assumed they would become a team of super-heroes. But the writers thought the fans were so invested in the characters that they would prefer to see their individual stories. That actually makes sense from a narrative point of view. Getting all of them together once a season makes it more special. But there just weren't many interesting things happening in between.

I agree that the acting wasn't the best (with a few exceptions like Masi Oka).

Because of the failure of TOUCH, some are saying that Tim Kring (the creator of both shows) was never a good writer. I read somewhere that he copied storylines from some comic books.

Tim Kring wrote Teen Wolf Too. So yeah he was never a good writer. The few not-awful parts of the first season were because of Bryan Fuller, who bailed after the first season to do Pushing Daisies. However, Kring's not as big a hack as Jeph Loeb. Kring never made anything as bad as http://comicsalliance.com/worst-of-the-worst-ultimatum/ - this .

At the end of the latest episode of GAME OF THRONES, JOFFREY died. I've been debating about how some viewers and critics have crossed the line.

Am I glad JOFFREY died? Of course. He's one of the most evil characters in the history of TV. But a lot of you have been saying that he didn't suffer enough. Enjoying the idea that someone gets what they deserved is normal, but enjoying watching the punishment? That's kind of sadistic, specially when the punishment is a physical torture.

People, why did you want him to get what he deserved? To learn his lesson? After TYRION slapped him, it was clear to me that he was never going to change. So even if he had suffered longer it wouldn't have made a difference. Now, if it had made a difference for you because it makes you feel better to see that kind of thing, you're not that different from RAMSAY SNOW.

Any thoughts?

I think that Joffrey's death fit him perfectly. Instead of going down in a blaze of glory, he gets poisoned and dies anti-climatically. Also, if the show follows the books, then I know who the poisoner is. I won't reveal it here, but if you want to know now I'll send you a Private Message.
