    What kind of TV do you own?

    As many are aware, it's Cyber Monday and this past weekend saw many a price drops in everything from electronics to kitchen appliances. I've been looking for a new TV for some time, and think I've settled on the Panasonic 55 " VT60 plasma, which right now is a reasonable $1,499. I'm still a pretty big DLP fan, but since the market for giant heavy TVs is dead, they no longer exist. LCD is also not as common as it used to be. The shitty motion smoothing fake colorization LED reigns supreme in the home theater market. My old Toshiba DLP has lasted me around 8 years, can't exactly remember how long it's been. The bulb has exploded on one occasion, which was easily replaceable due to the DLP nature (it works just like a film projector), but its picture is a bit on the buttery side and the bulb is probably on its last legs (they are no longer in production), yet it still looks better than any LED I've ever seen. I'm very picky about my picture quality, so I'm a bit apprehensive when it comes to buying something from this ever-changing market, where most TVs have so much unnecessary filters and customizations and smoothing and blurring and whatever already preset out of the box that it all looks like 48fps. I'm mainly looking for reassuring comments about my decision for this Panasonic plasma to make me take the plunge, but am also curious to know what JWFan-ers are watching on.

    Video Game Thread II

    I only played a little bit of Arkham Asylum, never played Arkham City, and fully played Arkham Knight. I’d say the combat is more satisfying in the Batman games, but swinging around the city here is intensely satisfying.

    No, to reach 100% was arduous in the tedious open world activities. That’s why I suggested to stick to the story if you want a mean and lean experience. To do everything would probably take 25-30 hours. The story is well told and has some fun boss battles.

    Just reached 100% in Spider-Man. Quite pleased with it overall, though unless you’re a madman like myself, stick to the story missions and side quests for a better experience. Impressed with John Paesano’s score; might just be my favorite Spider-Man score. Bizarre that it has no album release.

    I kinda like its streamlined look. Without spoiling the story, the game changes based on your decisions from the first playthrough.
  8. Recent posts have shown me that there are people here who truly like his music. Even if it's not all of it. This thread is to discuss his music properly, rather than just arguments or mentions or small side discussions in different threads. Talk about your favorite scores, cues, or anything else. I think the main problem on this forum is that people criticize what they don't know. Hans has so much good music that no one discusses. It's always the bad, and rarely the good, sometimes the ugly His non-action scores are brilliant, and I think those barely get discussion here.

    This. There's no revisionist history with Quantum Of Solace, people always thought it was terrible and trying to mimic Bourne.

    DC Cinematic Universe Thread

    Suicide Squad is indeed terrible. Whole film is a mess. Having abandoned the MCU after the first Avengers film, I thought I could at least be socially relevant by keeping up with the DC films. But after watching Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman, and Justice League recently, I can happily abandon this as well. I'll stick with real blockbuster filmmaking like Mission: Impossible!

    Video Game Thread II

    Isn't the gameplay just your typical point and click adventure game? I dug the animation style and loved the story and how it evolves over multiple playthroughs. Cool sound design too.

    The gameplay is as superb as the narrative in that one. You’re delusional man!

    They already brought Seinfeld back. It’s called Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    I do every 2 years as well; and my upgrade cycle used to be on the new model releases and not the S releases, but since Apple can’t count to 10 I ended up on an S cycle.

    You dislike The Last Of Us? ‘Nuff said!

    I disagree completely. Uncharted is a pulp adventure through and through. Nothing about the game would suggest "mass murder." It's just a literal byproduct of the gameplay. The shooting is quick, snappy, and animations fall in line with the tone of the combat and Drake as a character. Snapping necks is fast and easy, there's no blood or gore, and there's always a one-liner tucked away for the right moment. Contrast with Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us, and you can clearly draw the lines between them.
