EmptyRadar,

I love that this movie is always billed as "starring Mark Hamill", but he's a supporting character.

EmptyRadar,

That is discussed in the article:

The Discovery Channel series “MythBusters” featured episodes in 2004, 2006 and 2010 testing out scenarios for the purported death ray but ultimately declared the legend to be a myth when each test failed to light a wooden boat on fire. In 2005, a class of students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, inspired by the show’s first episode, was able to ignite a wooden boat once with a similar technique to Sener’s on a larger scale, but failed on a second attempt.

Sener said he believes that combining MIT’s findings with his own, the data could suggest the death ray was plausible, and Archimedes likely could have used the sun’s rays with large mirrors to cause combustion. But the technology may not work in cold temperatures or cloudy weather, and the sea’s impact on the ships’ motion affects the practicality of this device, he added in his paper.

EmptyRadar,

Did you read the article? "MCU" appears nowhere in it and Sony is mentioned 10+ times. This has nothing to do with the MCU whatsoever.

EmptyRadar,

Yeah, it's definitely clear that you don't enjoy the MCU. I don't think anyone has an issue with you feeling that way. What I don't like to see is when content is misrepresented in titles when posted, it degrades the quality of the platform as a whole and encourages reactions which aren't based on the actual content.

EmptyRadar,

Cool, always glad to see another user who makes an effort to submit content - I'm glad you're doing the same. I took issue with your title for this post, and I think I expressed that adequately here. Take care.

EmptyRadar,

It's such a good book. I hope the series lives up.

EmptyRadar,

I agree that this may be the only real solution for the time being. I have personally been trying to submit good content to my favorite magazines to combat some of the spam, but there is a real influx of it and it's making it difficult to use the site.

Carl Weathers Dies: ‘Rocky’ & ‘Predator’ Star Who Appeared In ‘Happy Gilmore’, ‘The Mandalorian’ & More Was 76 (deadline.com)

Carl Weathers, who starred as Apollo Creed in the first four Rocky films and appeared in Predator, The Mandalorian, Happy Gilmore, Action Jackson and dozens of other films and TV shows, died Tuesda…

EmptyRadar,

Yes, I agree with this. I've thought about this before, and Star Wars doesn't really qualify as "Science Fiction", because we never learn about the science of anything. It's just there - part of the scenery. That's the fantasy aspect; we're not thinking about realism or how things work, we are just fantasizing about a cool futuristic space setting with space magic and swords with blades made of light.

EmptyRadar,

My favorite part of that episode is right after Picard gets there and finds out what's going on. He takes one look at the ghost and is just like "Come on Beverly, we're getting out of here."

Even he was like, fuck this shit I'm out.

EmptyRadar,

And it didn't matter anyway, because the folks at Disney were going to fuck it up no matter how she did.

EmptyRadar,

I just played this through again recently. Doesn't need a remake, but I wouldn't mind a nice HD texture redo.

EmptyRadar,

I don't believe that stat, based on my own personal experience. I've been a VR user for close to 10 years now and I've introduced many, many people to it. I've only had one person feel sick in any way in that entire time.

EmptyRadar,

But...why? It's so much simpler and often better to just emulate the original software and hardware than to port entire games.

He's not preserving them - that's done by simply archiving the file. He's making them playable on modern software. That's something different entirely, still very cool though.

EmptyRadar,

I guess that depends who you ask. I emulate games all the time. Just takes a little bit of willingness to learn something new.

EmptyRadar,

Thanks for sharing your opinion. Personally I find the process to be much simpler than what you described, but I guess it comes down to knowledge and experience in that area. Happy learning and good luck with all that!

EmptyRadar, (edited )

Nope, I have been a PC gamer for about 30 years and I love emulating classics from the past. It's not as challenging as folks around here seem to think. I guess sometimes people just have a hard time accepting that there can be multiple ways of doing a thing, even if they are unaware of some of those ways. Emulating XP might seem like a big deal for someone who is new to the idea, but personally I have been emulating XP for decades, even when it was the modern OS, along with many other types of OS, so it's a matter of rote for me at this point. I wouldn't even consider XP to be old enough to be a challenge - try emulating some of the original Linux distros, or an OS you've never heard of for that matter. That's where the challenge can come in.

I love that so many people have an opinion on this subject though. It just affirms that new ideas are out there for those who want them. Happy learning!

EmptyRadar,

Why not just sell the game? Secure the bag and the peace of mind at the same time
