Fantasy Flight opened a game center here in the TC that serves wine and beer. You can enjoy the beverages out on the game floor. Its hardly an issue since most folks seem to enjoy in moderation. Blends in completely with the stores family vibe and you wouldn't even know the person next to you was having alcohol.
I attribute a lot of that to how the business presents itself. Its a game store first, an event center second, and a café/bar third. The drinks lean towards the premium side of things so its not like dollar old Milwaukee, lone star, or old style taps. I think FFG has demonstrated a glowing example of how to do it in 2016.
second this request.
I agree batman was pretty lame in TDK. However, my biggest gripe about supers flicks is underdeveloped villains. Instead of the joker 9/10 times you get super angry, ultra powerful, genocidal maniac guy. All you know is the guy is pissed and his finger is on the button..../yawn
Nope, that's just Michael Bay.

Or the wasted scenes discussing why a dude can date an underage girl legally.....Seriously WTF...why would you put that in a movie about giant robots???
Oh man I know. I remember when the industrial revolution came through. Machines and assembly lines put blacksmiths and horse ranchers out of business and tractors took away all the field hand jobs. It was scary and everything was on fire. Then when calculators turned into computers it was like Mad Max....
Trump is never held accountable for anything. Why should he start now?

Obviously, both parties have had movements demanding major change. I think the main difference in the convention disruptions is the fact that the Democrats actually acknowledge the difference. Hilary has reached a hand out to bridge the gap and sat down at the table with Bernie. (Whether you believe its honest or genuine or not is up to you) Trump on the other hand has more or less told his opposition to get in line or else. In fact, trump already said he is going to send millions into the coffers of opponents to run against Kasich and Cruz. (I wouldn't worry about that if I were them, Trump has a habit of saying he is going to toss money around that never materializes. Just ask the veterans...)
That said, I still would never play a martial character, being stuck in suckland while the casters laugh and solve every problem/destroy every enemy just doesn't seem like fun to me personally....
Listen to you kids and your unearned magic. In my day, nobody laughed at the fighting man. Sure magic users had incredible power, but we didnt worry about it because they were always murdered by a mundane fighting men before getting any of it. The fighting man gets no respect I tell ya!
Yeap, as long as you follow the white nationalist ideology. Everyone else though, needs to be beaten mercilessly by law.

They tried to go timey whimey and get both an old story and a new one. Clearly miles vary on that being a success.
This. Essentially, Trump promotes policy against entire groups of people (like Muslims) based on pure generalizations, which is racist.
May I ask an honest question? Republicans are always trying to limit the size of government and control spending. Building a wall on the southern boarder would cost at least 20 billion dollars and require that same investment every few years to maintain. There is no guarantee the wall will even be able to prevent illegal entry, as even Trump himself said rope and ladders would get over it. What makes this particular project not a huge, if not the hugest, boondoggle in government history?
Sadly this. Steele always seemed reasonable but he was always shut down for not being "conservative" enough.
The plagiarism stuff I think is a little overblown about Melania's speech. I mean the lines are pretty generic about working hard and learning that and teaching it. I think the real point folks should focus on is how devoid of substance the speech was. Nothing personal, nothing beyond basic talking points, nothing that hasn't been said a bazillion times. Kind of like Trumps entire platform. Who could vote for this?

Is the new Star Trek series going to be in the original (TOS/TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT) continuity?
yes. Each season will be a self contained story that takes place in different eras of the television series. I believe the first season will be towards the end of the Kirk era.

Sort of yeah. My thought was folks want the old trek back and a series will give it to them. If there was no series they could just let the abramverse go away and try again in a few years. In that case, they would replace everybody so the unfortunate passing of Yeltin wouldnt be an issue.
if you dont like the Sulu decision just blame it on the Ambramverse being a huge garbage dump.
One thing they keep overlooking is the first woman/woman kiss that was on TV on DS9. That story was far more compelling Since Dax and her former spouse had been both men and women so the attraction transcended gender. In any event, an excellent Trek story that seems to have been forgotten in the discussion.
I can see both points of view of Takei and Pegg. If it was a series maybe a new gay character would be the route to go. Though you have a lot less time during a film to develop a new character. Seems fine and as I said if its badly done (a distinct possibility) just blame it on the bad reboot era and move on.
I read somewhere (maybe even on these boards) that when a dominant power group looses some privilege or power over a minority group(s), it is perceived like oppression. With the shifting demographics and ideologies in America, a lot of this is going to be felt in the next couple decades. My hope is that things don't get out of control as history has shown it to happen numerous times in the past.
I love the Raiders now because Carr, Crabtree, and Cooper won me a whole lotta fantasy games. Also, its great to see a team climb from the bottom. Hopefully they climb a lot higher! In fact, fantasy has changed the entire way I watch the game. I don't really hate any team and will never be a lifelong fan of any either. My buddies still think I am a Giants superfan; to be fair Odell Bekham jr. won me a lotta fantasy too :)
Oddly enough, I don't own a cell phone; smart or otherwise. I see some value in unplugging myself from time to time. While all my video and gaming needs are met by digital delivery, I still purchase Vinyl records for relaxing listening pleasure. I map out my trips before hand and often spend long weekends with no net at all. I'm part of a rapidly decreasing demographic though I believe. Welcome to the (dis)connected new world :)
Maybe im odd one out here, but on my first play-thru I went with whatever I felt was the best choice in any given situation. That meant a mixture of Para/Rene and I was quite satisfied. It was curiosity that lead me to repeat play-thrus, so I thought it was splendid design. Sure Shep may have had some fairly rigid choices at times, but I felt content with the amount of reactions. I felt ME made a number of personalities enjoyable enough to replay the game without it boiling down to simple black/white. YMMV.
I do think there is room for improvement, but I hope they dont throw out the baby with the bathwater. Whatever path they choose I sure hope it doesn't involve individual pet scores, kill farming, or gifts.

In that case, I strongly suggest looking over the 5E free rules PDF. Even if you don't play it, the design is a good read for someone with the interest.
I'm with the crowd that says "feats don't stop you from doing things, they just make you better at doing things." Of course, the effectiveness of any particular feat is definitely up for debate. I am fully aware some feats simply don't work or are not worthy of existence. As a result of that fact, my players often skip feats of limited narrative variety in favor of ones more useful in combat. Sadly, dems da breaks in 3.5/PF.
I agree that feats can lead to an ideology that they are required in order to attempt things. I think 5E putting more power back in the GM chair will do a lot to move away from that mindset. In fact, many of the examples given by the OP seem like encouragement right out of the 5E DMG. I like the fact that 5E feats tend to be equal amounts crunch and fluff making them seem just all around more useful. By containing more in the package, characters need fewer feats, which is another added bonus.
OP have you considered trying 5E? Do you find the same pitfalls in that system?
