  1. IIRC there was always several strands of the development of a Ghostbusters film in development for donkeys years. It was just that the Feig-directed one was the one that the studio (finally) approved recently, which didn't stop the continued development of the other strands.

    Supermac's

    Dunno if there's any Irish peeps who welcome a discussion on Supermac's but thought this might be worth a punt. Latest thing with them is the saga of attempting to expand into Europe. Essentially the recent timeline of events has gone like this: Supermac's announced plans to open a restaurant in Europe, starting in London Supermac's applied for trademark for "Supermac's" with the usual EU office McDonald's opposed this trademark, noting similarities and potential confusion with their trademarks such as Big Mac and Mc EU office grants Supermac's a trademark, but partly upholds McDonald's objections, which means trademarks can't be applied to restaurants or food items Supermac's, smarting from this ludicrous situation, files a cancellation application for Big Mac and Mc (two of the trademarks McDonald's used as a reason to oppose Supermac's application) This week the EU office cancelled McDonald's Big Mac trademark, as McDonald's hadn't passed their burden of proof of using trademark for intended market So corporate bully beaten by small player? I'm assuming that Supermac's will now refile and move on with opening in Europe?

  4. Apparently it's definitely happening... and Eddie Murphy has signed up for it. Source

    Do people still use DVDs?

    I still do DVDs (well, Blu-rays). Although I suppose this is totally the opposite of the behaviour of someone who absolutely wants physical - my disc purchases are probably 1-2 a year now, I haven't actually watched anything from discs in 3-4 years, and there are some discs that I actually have never watched anything from ever,. Some shows that appear on Sky (broadcast, on demand or catchup) or Amazon Prime Video I watch there, even if I have the DVD or Blu-ray because I can't be bothered to go and get the disc out - for example I just went through the entire 6-season run of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air despite me previously buying 4 of those 6 seasons (but never actually watching it from any of those discs) and I'm going through Knight Rider recorded from Spike TV (ads an all) despite having the box set from yeeeeeeears ago. And with my little ones I prefer to buy from the likes of Google Play because I can stream or download to pretty much anything, instead of being restricted to the big TV downstairs as with disc purchases (don't get me started with the car crash that is Ultraviolet).

    PS2 Appreciation Thread

    So love this console. Still have mine - the original original! Who remembers the need to prebook this console for the first few months? I booked mine on the Sony site IIRC, annoyingly they reserved my console in Electronics Boutique in Crawley instead of Croydon, the dumb idiots. I got it changed to the intended Croydon, and picked it up a week or two before Xmas, walking out with a big blue bag containing the goodness within.

    Bros: After the screaming stops

    WOT! Born in 1986? Everyone's heard of Bros., surely? Fucking hell, I must be old!

    Burnout Paradise

    Quick and silly question that I think I know what the answer is: can Burnout Paradise PS3 players play multiplayer with Burnout Paradise PS4 players?

    Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League 2018/19

    Fantasy Premier League draft. So what's this about? Looks like it's separate to the usual game.

    Will Smith is going to have to pull some Heath Ledger-type acting in order to erase Robin Williams out of existence.

    Die Hard

    Hey - a Christmas movie is a movie about Christmas. This isn't one of them, it's merely set at Christmas.. in fact it's not even set in the actual Christmas period (25th - 31st), it's set at Christmas Eve!

    Die Hard

    Totally this. Totally correct!
  15. I loved this game! That said, the only versions I played were the Gameboy version, and the Super NES "Super R-Type" game (slowdown be damned!), which I believe was R-Type and R-Type 2 mashed together.
