  1. I didn't mention writers at any point. The writers for a show are mostly filling out the creator's idea, but ultimately have little say in the actual direction of the story, or how long it goes on. Guillermo del Toro is ending The Strain after only four seasons, because his story is done. Kurt Sutter ended Sons of Anarchy after seven, because the Sons' story was done. He's working on a spinoff about the Mayans MC because he still has stories for them, not because FX sat him down and demanded more. SoA was over, and Kurt went to them with his new idea because there was no way they'd turn him down. As for shows that overstayed their welcome, Lost is an excellent example. That story wasn't long and needlessly convoluted because the creators were so clever and deep, it went on because people inexplicably liked that drivel, and the network kept drawing things out. Another great example is pretty much any sitcom. Although those are mostly garbage from the start, sitcoms go on for a decade or more (seriously, can The Simpsons just fuck off, already? It hasn't been good in 20 years), and only keep going because they appeal to the lowest common denominator. Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men (they fired their star and still kept that pile of shit going for another few years), etc. If the stars of a show are renegotiating their contracts and doubling their pay every other year, it's not because they want a fair share of the money the show's making, it's because they don't want to keep playing the same role they've spent ten years playing, and the network execs are piling money on top of them because those paychecks pale in comparison to what's going into their own pockets.
  2. As a good network? None. So many incredible shows in the past, and even currently, have gone to shit because the network overstepped and forced the show to continue long after the creators felt it should have ended, because they want to keep making money from it. If TV is going to be worth watching, the networks all need to step back and let the creators have their run, end the show when they see fit, and move on to their next epic idea. I have a lot of faith in the upcoming spinoffs. FTWD is so much better than TWD at this point, because they're not limited by any source material. GoT has been one hell of a ride, even having to adhere to certain plot points, so seeing the creators of the spinoffs do their own thing will be beautiful. Fingers forever crossed for a Khal Drogo prequel.
  3. Seriously. I played on PC, where quicksave just required hitting F5, and I was hitting that probably every 60 seconds or so without really noticing that I was doing it. That may have been largely due to my ~300 mods making me paranoid of sudden - but admittedly well-deserved - crashes.
  4. I should probably watch season 6, then.
  5. You're fine to grab the Dragonstone. To be on the safe side, do side quests and get to level 6 or so, before turning it in.
  6. This is coming along nicely. Very impressive.
  7. To this day, Chris Jericho remains a treasured gift to the world of professional wrestling. I haven't watched it in years, but I'm always pleased to see that he's still turning up, from time to time. He also seems to be holding up a lot better than other wrestlers his age. Especially considering he was originally from ECW. Guys like Sandman and Balls Mahoney are literally just painkillers and liquor, at this point.
  8. I'm an Autumn man, myself. Doing anything in the Summer that doesn't involve air conditioning is usually a no-go, for me.
  9. Every scientific or mechanically inclined mind should have its quirks. A scientist or engineer who is all work and no play is one of the most boring motherfuckers on the planet, no matter how important their work is.
  10. Well, the whole point of not releasing a new AC last year was to take a step back and rethink everything they've done with the series. They've pretty much redesigned AC as an action rpg. Hopefully this won't fuck up the stealth gameplay that made them famous (and let's be honest, if you're not playing this game as stealth, you're doing it wrong) but I have my doubts.
  11. From the point of view of someone who plays good MMOs... no. But Bioware has only done me wrong once, and that was Dragon Age II. Even then, I can't really fault them much, because they handled the qunari so well and set up a better story for Dragon Age Inquisition. I believe in Bioware. In a world of microtransaction-fueled online modes and four versions of Skyrim (coming soon for the Super NES!), there aren't many companies I can say that about. Also, don't act like you're not hype for mechs and power armor, Fanboy.
  12. On the other side of the coin, Fear the Walking Dead is actually better than TWD right now, because they don't have any source material to follow. They can maintain a GoT pace that lasts longer than the show they spun off from.
  13. Re: Spin-offs Drogo prequel or fuck off. He was the only relatable character on the show for me, until Tyrion became an alcoholic.
  14. Sounds like I owe Rockstar an apology. I'm sorry, Rockstar. When I said that GTAO couldn't possibly be any more of a shitty, uninteresting, desperate cash grab, I genuinely thought that it couldn't. I was wrong. Making people pay to unlock more shit they have to pay for is a pretty clever move.
  15. If I have one gripe, so far, it's that there were QTEs fucking everywhere, but I'm sure you'd hardly notice it, actually playing the game instead of just watching it. To make another reference to Ultimate Spider-Man, I'm hoping they include unlockable costumes. A fuckton of them. Bonus points for Iron Spider.
