  4. It's true: Halo can be said to be the blueprint for subsequent console FPSs because you can point directly to the numerous games that adopted its signature gameplay mechanics like recharging health, a strict weapon limit, and grenades/melee being given their own dedicated buttons. You can also point to FPSs that trace their lineage back to Quake, Half-Life, Deus Ex, Medal of Honor, etc. Whereas it's harder to list games that followed the GoldenEye template. Beyond the obvious ones (Perfect Dark, TimeSplitters, and later Bond games), the only FPSs I can think of that could be said to look directly back to GoldenEye were Cold Winter (with its huge focus on sniper rifles!) and XIII. Even with those two, me associating them with GoldenEye probably had a lot to do with their spy setting and focus on stealth; they didn't really adopt what we might now think of as GE's signature elements, like the numerous short levels with objectives that vary with difficulty setting.

  7. But don't worry Shazam fans, it's OK! He wasn't talking about vaccines at all! He was actually referring to examples like the 2009 settlement that Pfizer paid for false marketing of other, non-vaccine medication:

  13. Especially when they've been given shocking/sad news, like a person's death, and they just sit there in stunned silence and then end the phone call. In real life, no matter how shocked they are, they'd probably still say something else before hanging up! ("Thank you for telling me" or "Do you want me to tell [mutual friend]?" etc.) I sometimes get distracted in films when we don't see characters finish completing everyday actions. For example we'll see them open a fridge to take out a drink, and then they'll have a lengthy dialogue scene, but we don't see or hear the fridge door being closed. Or they go to the toilet but we don't see them washing their hands, or they leave their home without locking the door. Of course we can assume that they probably did those things, but if the editing conspicuously avoids showing them, we could equally conclude that they didn't.
  14. No one in this thread suggested Tomb Raider, but it looks like we're getting two different Lara Croft shows: a Netflix animated series with Hayley Atwell, and this newly-reported Amazon live action series:
