  1. I have a thing about rivets and indeed even panel lines. I think they show up too exaggerated when easily visible because if we blew up that item to 100% scale, they've be just gaps that would affect the airframe. That pic above just screams this. In reality if we shrunk an F-14 down to 1/100, I doubt we'd see panel lines of the cockpit assembly anywhere near as easily as we see in that VF-1 pic.
  2. I think it might also be a good time to throw in some easter eggs connecting to Casian Andor, Kanan and Hera from Rebels, and maybe start showing us a bit more of the fall of Mandalore.
  3. New promo vid: I will say it feels a bit disconcerting to see so many Romulans surrounding Jean-Luc. Can't shake the feeling they've all got daggers or gom jabbars hidden up their sleeves.
  4. I like how that valks are taking off DYRL style on the outside. Very nice.
  5. When I played FPSs I liked to get as high of a framerate as possible so I would only ever use 1x or 2x anti-aliasing. Higher definition display may also increase input lag, the amount of time when you click, and you see the action happen on your screen. For most casual games, that's probably not an issue. Now as for fighting games, well they usually aren't very demanding on hardware, but must absolutely run at 60 FPS - no more, no less. Anything that increases input lag is verboten, so 4K monitors are wasted on fighters.
  6. Well the Cats movie definitely shows up some of the uncanny valley issues with trying to make the cats too feline in they look. For me the biggest issue is in how the ears are rendered at so large and nakedly top of the human head. It's just alien. The Cats musical look is more appealing and keeps the ears sort of ambiguous and a part of the hairdo. Really, when I think of the look from the animation and what that should look like on screen in a live action movie, it's more or less this: Which is to say not very cat-like at all. Rather, more like really well done-cosplay. Everytime I see either fan concepts or possibly studio concepts for Thundercats they end up going way overboard bring out the cat/lion look and the overall effect is that the character either looks like Simba from Lion King or some sort of werewolf.
  7. I don't think I'm capable from disowning anything Trek, except for complete Kelvin/JJVerse stories. Because those are crap. But TV land Trek has had just enough Trek for me to stay in it. Guess I'm a glutton for punishment. Actually I know I am. Very few undertake a full Voyager re-watch knowing what they are about to be subjected to.
  8. He he, that's funny. Is that a "kitbash" of the Matchbox veritech?
  9. Well, actually, the early drafts of SW had action taking place on forest planet "populated by a more primitive version of wookiees". That got cut, but they came back as Ewoks. Of note, the Native People of the California close to Skywalker Ranch are the Miwok, pronounced like the Ewoks, so that's probably where Lucas got that name. https://www.quora.com/Why-did-Lucas-change-the-final-battle-of-ROTJ-from-Kashyyyk-to-Endor
  10. I heard that about AO and haven't wanted to sully my memory of E7 by watchin AO. I'm also worried this will try something weird like that.
