    how did she block a lightsaber with her hand

    you can't do that

    that's cheating

    Well. She pretty much was a deus ex machina.

    There's a few tropes in that cinematic that I hate:

    1) The bad guy keeps the defeated good guy alive long enough to show off.
    2) The good guy, of course, survives and beats the bad guy at the end which means the bad guy could have prevented it.
    3) Robot Jedi Bitch shows up JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME to save the day. Where the fuck was she for the first 2-3 minutes of that battle, huh? Powdering her nose? Tying up those braids?
    4) Blocking a fucking lightsaber WITH HER HAND. You don't get more deus ex machina than that.

    It would be pretty awesome to get a second KOTOR game after all this time.

    You're implying that the incompleteness of Kotor 2 made it not a proper game? Read the SA forum let's play, it definitely fills in all the blanks and is totally sweet.

    I mean, it's better than playing the actual game which was already pretty awesome.

    Also, I like how Anarchy Online started off with a "four year goal" which was going to have a very tightly-guided story by Funcom and it's now entering its ninth year of existence with very little story, but free to play.

    Man, Will, nothing is made for you. The only thing made for you is your condo, your alcohol and your Apple products. Everything else eludes you. Android devices need to be rooted just like iPhone devices need to be jailbroken. Those phone nerds root their phone because they're phone nerds! If Cat doesn't want an iPhone then she needs to get an Android device. I don't know what carriers are in Australia though or what they have. The Incredible is a good device.

    Well that is why I asked her what she was looking for in a phone! I don't know if she wants video and Internet and whatnot or just an updated successor to her old sony eriksson.

    And I am just relating my experiences with the people I know who have android phones: they are the same people who have Linux installs on their PCs, and seem to treat their phones in roughly the same way. And the phones work great for them, but they are definitely more of a hobby that i am looking to undertake.

    I think the incredible is a nice looking device. Definitely the best form factor of any of the android phones i've seen.

    In Japan, some people give them to babies. There's a 100-day-old celebration that's a bit like a christening, and it's quite common nowadays to give a mobile to your spawn.

    I agree with it fully.

    The voting system is there so you can register your disapproval for certain threads.

    And if it does get out of hand without the spectral fear of belittlement hanging over everyone's head, Will/Tube can just yank the rule and return the subforum to its original dog-eat-dog nature.

    But I don't see anything wrong with telling people to use the system ALREADY IN PLACE to express pleasure or displeasure at a thread. I mean that's what voting is for. A lot of people like to clique up in that forum and basically start little mini forum wars.

    That doesn't make any sense because The Old Republic takes place 3,500 years before the films. The Empire refers to the recently emerged Sith Empire during a time when the Sith were more numerous and active.

    I guess the uniforms and the likeness to Fett are coincidence or maybe clones have been done before. The GT trailer description is similarly confused, calling them clones as well.

    He didn't put a ban on non-favorable comments. He specifically singled out "dogpiling," which happens too often and just brings down the overall utility of the entire subforum.

    First off, this isn't a democracy, so if they want to only allow positive comments, that's really well within the rights of Penny Arcade. If I have a rule that in my house people are only allowed to smile but never frown and you feel like frowning, well feel free to go to someone else's house. Maybe that sounds retarded, but it's the nature of privately-owned property and whitespace (which this is).

    Anyway, I don't agree with your interpretation of Will's post. He didn't say "you can never say anything negative ever." You're warping the post out of proportion. The fact is, reading that thread is often as galling as H&A and not because dumb threads get reported for awesome but mainly because silly geese don't have anything better to do than sit on the subforum sniping at people to make themselves feel better.

    Frankly, if it's a choice between providing people an additional opportunity to troll each other, or restricting some freedom of expression, I'm in favor of the latter.
