Has anyone received their copy?
I am very excited for Armada as well, but that's a few months from now. That's not a "casual" game that I can get not gamers into.
X-Wing is aces man, they have one of the best Millennium Falcon models out there, I love it. I have the Tantive IV as well and all the Imperial ships.
I have been a supporter of X-Wing since they announced the game, in fact I am a little worried that in 2015 my Fantasy Flight expenses (which includes X-Wing, and the upcoming Armada and Imperial Assault) may exceed my Paizo expenses which has never happened.
I was asking about Imperial Assault though.
Is anyone here playing this game?
I am going to see it today in IMAX and can't wait.
I have not read under the spoilers above, I am keen in seeing if they stay true enough to the books and certain Dwarves die in the end, something that would shock casual movie goers.
I have noticed since the first Hobbit movie that Gandalf's staff from the Lord of the Rings movies is Radagast's in this set of movies, I hope they don't kill off Radagast to make that some part of this epic because that certainly does not happen in the book.
I don't think there are really big spoilers for studious fans below if you have gotten this far, in case though, SPOILERS below.
I did hate how they killed Tripp, they could have killed him in combat with Whitehall, with both bodies conveniently lost.
The moment the Doctor introduced himself as "Cal" I realized the internets were right for a change and his character was indeed Calvin Zabo/Mr. Hyde (no major surprise for those making speculations) and that his daughter was Skye/Daisy Johnson/Quake.
Being exposed to the terrigen crystals makes Raina what?
Some people are saying Tygra, but I don't I don't think so, not the right fit.
Possibly the Inhuman Minxi.
I think the second half of season 2 will have some great moments as Skye/Daisy/Quake learns to use her powers. Does she become part of the Avengers Initiative?
Nah ... She will remain an agent of SHIELD.
In the end credit scene, is that the Inhuman named Reader?
Is Whitehall dead? What if his abilities included some form of regeneration, although the Doctor would have known that being that his wife possessed the abilities.

I give the man kudos for being a Star Wars fan two weeks longer then me.
Tonight's episode is called "...Ye Who Enter Here."
It's the mid season "finale." (Sigh, what media pin head thought that up.)
Skye (who I am meh about) and her father (who rocks) are sure to play key parts in the story arc.
Also the moment it was revealed that Dr. Daniel Whitehall killed Kyle MacLachlan wife, I realized what MacLachlan meant by being "reunited" with his family. By season's real end MacLachlan will have his wife's organs back and in himself.
Pity I like Whitehall.
He means the fight between Gandalf and Saruman, unless he was referring to the actual War of the Ring, in which case, in a manner of speaking, was Gandalf marshaling forces to face Sauron.
True, from a certain point of view.

And just like that, I am 7 years old again.
That's in two hours.
It is a good time to be alive if you are a Loyal Imperial citizen.
Awesome opening, probably the best so far for Gotham, the series is definitely getting better.
I love how the scenes were cut.
The dining room scene was great, I love Don Carmine Falcone in this series.
To my surprise I am enjoying the interaction between Bruce and Selina.
And the 'return' of Poison Ivy.
Alfred, like a boss.
All roads continue to lead to Arkham.
Does Gordon have to have his a$s handed to him every other episode?
This is how much of an Imperial I remain to this day.
A recurring nightmare I have had since I was 12 still creeps up on me about once a year.
And its that of His Imperial Majesty's ship the Super Star Destroyer Executor being pulled into the Death Star II's gravity well.
That was a tragedy of paramount magnitude.
What do I hope to see in the next Star Wars movie?
Do you know how people say that "this movie" or "that movie" is the Star Wars of this generation.
Well how about we have a Star Wars the IS The Star Wars of this generation. For any generation while we are at it.
I want the silver screen to have all the elements that made my 7 year old self eyes go wide and mouth drop. I want Star Wars VII to bring back my sheer love and utter awe of Star Wars. I want the orchestra to play long and the audience to cheer wild. I want my villains properly British and my scoundrels with a heart of gold always shoot first. I want to go back and be transported to a long time ago, in the galaxy far, far away, and meet my 7 year old self again and we have the time of our lives.
I just want my childhood back for a couple of hours.
Now you kids get off my lawn!
Entitled "Penguin's Umbrella" this episode is my favorite by far.
This episode progresses the main plot forward, and unexplained story arc points come to light.
Cameo of Victor Zsasz, we see the Penguin's criminal mind at work, I liked the character of Harvey Bullock, last week's show brought to light another side of Bullock, in this episode its hard not to cheer him on, I even LOVED the Mayor in his brief part.
I hope this series grows further with more episodes like this one.
Not comprehensive but up to date, Marvel and DC scheduled releases, its a good time to be alive for comic book fans.
I thought I recall seeing something about Stark activating an old already developed program defense program, which is what leads to Ultron. If that is the case, than I wouldn't be surprised if their wasn't a Pym name drop.
That indeed has been the speculation.
Further it may well be the stepping stone that will be the basis of the Civil War that pits the Marvel heroes against each other, namely Tony Stark's camp versus Captain America.

Either that or it is finally the time my childhood dream of Lord of the Rings crosses over to the Avengers.
One Ring to Rule them all, One Ring to find them,
I the Dark land of Latveria where even your own shadow lies.
I look forward to teaming up with loyal citizens of The Empire as we crush this thrice damned rebellion under our heel, just as a Bantha would swat a fly.
Fair enough. I will definitely see the movie, I was just saying I am not the biggest Del Toro fan, more for his recent body of work than that episode.
As I said, I give people a lot of leeway in what is acceptable, for anyone to strike me as a retard you need to be working at it. I have a fairly forgiving threshold.
Val Kilmer having a fight with his lady friend then going to a corner to drink away his sorrows quietly, then being so drunk because he wanted to drink the night away that it took me and three security to carry him to a waiting car or Tommy Lee vomiting under a table but who continued to apologize and tip the busboys the whole night, acceptable in my book.
Completely unacceptable/horrific/should never be done
Naomi Campbell screaming at the top of her lungs in public at a poor terrified assistant half her height for not having her car service ready for her (it was caught in New York rush hour traffic, nothing the assistant could do, this was years before Uber or traffic Apps) and then to top it off, Ms. Cambell throwing, or rather hurling her very much alive miniature dog at the assistant a good eight feet away from her hurting both the dog and the girl.
Ok end of thread jack.
I was trying to be sparse with the details.
What I remember from that night was he was being a bit loud and obnoxious in the propositioning, and particularly vulgar to boot. Name calling and catcalling and some more on the serious side that definitely crosses the line. He gave waitresses his room key card repeatedly despite them retuning it to him. Things of that nature. I give guests a lot of berth in what is acceptable, fame or no so for anyone to strike me as a prick really needs to be trying hard.
As a comparison example and on the opposite side of the coin, I have seen Mick Jagger always act like a gentleman over the course of fourteen years and in multiple locations and occasions has been gracious to fans and generous to the staff, and he normally leaves with a gaggle of 'women' a third his age.
Those were indeed the movies, both were rather meh and nothing you would bother seeing more than once, if that. Unless you like Smoking Aces, then you may like Savages. YMMV. But even then Excess Baggage does not even rise to that level.
