As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around
1am MIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Prometheus - Probably an Alien prequel, unless it isn't (it totally is)
So there was this movie called Alien, you may have heard of it
Then there was this movie originally conceived as a direct prequel to the story of Alien, but over time the story evolved and changed and no longer directly leads into that movie
But despite various filmmakers' comments that it "shares some DNA" with Alien or that it's about 5 percent a prequel or something, we know that it takes place in the same universe and before the events of the main series, and honestly I think that's enough to call it a prequel in the commonly accepted sense of the term
Not much is actually known about it but it has Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender and Idris Elba and Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce, and that trailer looks pretty nifty
