History of RMS Oceanic [chat]

RMS_Oceanic_(1870).jpg

RMS Oceanic I was built in 1870, and was one of the debut liners for the White Star Line. She had features like running water for First Class Passengers! One of her more famous passengers was Nellie Bly, who boarded her on her Round the World in 72 Days trip. She was scrapped in 1896.

RMS Oceanic II was built in 1899, and was briefly the largest ship in the world. She was meant to have a twin sister Olympic, but this was cancelled after Thomas Ismay, father of J. Bruce, died. In 1912 she was laid up in Southampton due to a Coal Worker's Strike, and got to see the new Titanic depart on her maiden voyage. In August 1914 she was requisitioned as an auxiliary cruiser. In August 1914 she was run aground on the Shetland islands and eventually broke up.

Postcard_Oceanic_III.jpg

RMS Oceanic III was proposed in 1926, after hearing of Cunard and France line plans for 1000 foot long superliners. She was to have revolutionary diesel engines and possibly be the first White Star ship to take the Blue Riband in 50 years. Her keel was laid in 1928, but progress was slow due to arguments about her design. These were resolved in 1929...right when the Great Wall Street Crash happened and all money everywhere ceased to exist. Work was halted on both her and her erstwhile rival Queen Mary. Oceanic was cancelled and her keel was repurposed to build the smaller MV Britannic III.

You can see the resemblance.

In 1934 the Government facilitated a merger of Cunard and White Star and financed the Queen Mary's construction. Britannic and her sister Georgic were the last purpose-built White Star ships and over the years Cunard absorbed White Star's properties until only Cunard remained.

And this third hypothetical ship is for which I am eponymous!

So now you know.

    My roommates totally refer to themselves as their cats' "mom and dad". I told them it was creepy.

    Also, I am totally uploading some cat shaming pictures I took right now, they will be up in a sec.

    I'd just do a piece of paper that reads:

    "I won't sit still long enough to have my picture taken"

    and that would be my cat shaming picture.

    Well, logically, Silent Hills should be a thrilling action-adventure in contrast to the original Silent Hill which was slow-paced horror.

    Then Silent Hill: Resurrection will come out and be considered Joss Whedon's greatest disappointment.

    I had no idea.

    Which version? I remember that it got several redrafts and complete rewrites over its life.

    Wasn't it set on a wooden moon at one point?

    I was able to find this quote from Whedon about Alien:Resurrection

    ]
    “I wrote two characters for ‘Alien: Resurrection’ and their arc was that you would not know what way they were going to go,” Whedon explained. “One of them turned out to be insane — and what do they do? They call Brad Dourif. So there is no plot twist. Brad is a very good actor but he has been pigeonholed into these roles. Then they case J.E. Freeman as a thug — and his character was also supposed to be a mystery. So there you go again, the mystery is gone. Those are just a couple of examples because there are thousands of them when it comes to ‘Alien: Resurrection.’”

    If you look back at Kojima's twitter he was mentioned he wanted someone to do Silent Hill with FOX engine because its in small spaces so they could really push the graphics.

    I just wonder who is actually making the game? KojiPro/Kojima himself be all hands on deck for TPP so where is the man power coming from. I hope we find out this week.

    Joss Whedon has a million stories about how some DUMB SUIT who DIDN'T GET IT went in and RUINED EVERYTHING and while I don't deny Whedon's talent it does make me think that mmmmmmmmmmaybe the common denominator to these stories is in fact Joss Whedon? And maybe there are parts of the job that he was neglecting if he kept getting so casually overruled, or wasn't able to write in such a way that the studio making casting choices like this wouldn't ruin his plans?

    We don't know that Silent Hills is actually in development yet; it's possible that Kojima actually plans to do this one himself once TPP's done.

    That said, if you are a game studio you know to slap Kojima's name on your teaser if he has even the tiniest involvement (similarly with del Torro). I wonder how involved they both are? Because if del Torro is doing all the monster design (which logically, he should be) I am very excited about at least one aspect of the game.
