    Captain Marvel Will Lead the MCU, Kevin Feige Says

    Exactly.. In my opinion the Hulk movie should have been a monster movie.. Kind of like "Brightburn" but its not an alternate story. The Hulk cannot be reasoned with or does not want wealth, fame or power... just pure destruction.. maybe add a hero like Hyperion... and they can leave...

    Captain Marvel Will Lead the MCU, Kevin Feige Says

    Did not care for infinity war... especially the fight between Thanos and the Hulk.. Thanos rarely engaged in physical confrontations, especially with the Hulk, the watered down version of the Hulk in the MCU has always been horrible. I remember reading a story 20 or 30 years ago cannot remember...

    Controversial Game Pulled by Steam after Outcry

    Yeah... this is one of those things...where... you walk a thin line between freedom of expression and advocating real violence.

    The Biggest Problem with Triple-A, Open-World Games: "They're Boring as Hell"

    Sounds like ADD to me. most games are built from the ground up for kids with ADD... constant action, icons all over the fricken place, power-ups, instant gratification.... good example... GTAV online... nothing but a bunch of Trevors running around... you have this amazing map/city that could...
