First reactions - Marvel's Ant-Man

Not a disaster, apparently.

Did you guys miss the whole Sony/Disney announcement a few months back?

3
They've already established he's in the shared Disney/Sony Marvel Universe.

4
Tom Holland is Spider-Man

Not familiar with any of his work.  Hopefully he has the goods.

I don't think either of my girls were impacted that way.  They weren't blown away by it either.

But this woman, I'm talking body-shuddering sobs.

I saw it.  Didn't work for me.  I just didn't buy into the stakes, I think.  I'm not even sure.  The woman two seats over from me sobbing for the last third of the film suggested I was supposed to be feeling something, but I just didn't.

Nope, I wasn't talking down to you at all.  I was making the point that the BC library is garbage right now.  People who are being sold the idea "Eventually, pretty much every game will be playable" are being misled.  In fact, Microsoft has stated that even games that win their poll of which games should be added aren't guaranteed to be made.  At this point, we don't know how many it'll happen with, or if it'll end up being anywhere close to "pretty much every game."  Jesse thinking he can unplug his 360 because he can play AC, or Diddly wanting to go back and play Red Dead - those conclusion have no basis in fact.  And we don't know the rate at which they'll add games either.  Who cares if it's a library of 300 games if it takes 5 years to get there, and everyone has moved on to the Xbox Two?

It might end up having a large library.  They might come out fast.  Or maybe those things won't happen.  Nobody knows for sure.  Treating this announcement as something it isn't is just dishonest.  All we know right now is you'll definitely be able to pop in your old copy of Viva Piņata.

Condescending was dismissing the whole BC program because the list of titles 3 days after it's announcement isn't terribly lengthy.

Looks like someone needs a dictionary...

(see, that was an example of being condescending)

Thanks for being as condescending as always...

Fair enough.  At this point in the current generation, I can't imagine going back to play old PS3 games on any regular basis.  I have about 4 games for the PS4 I still need to play, plus whatever comes out in the next few months while I'm playing those.  I never catch up.  Maybe you guys just have a ton more time to play games than I do.

Which games on the Xbox 360 BC list do you plan to play on your Xbox One?

It was a body double.  She was preggers at the time of filming.

Again, why not show the death if he's truly meant to be dead?

Money.  Fake heads are expensive.  If you can get the same message across with a quick scene transition, it's a compelling option to showrunners.  Especially in an episode where they're already throwing a ton of money up on the screen.
