Come on. Really? A good percentage of the theatres all across the country show ads now.
You cant get away from them. You are telling us that if you really are pumped for a movie, and
they show a Pepsi ad, that you leave the movie? Hard to really believe, but if you do.. good for you.
Yup. It's only happened twice, I can't even remember what movies, but it is a matter of principle. Play the commercial before the lights dim and the doors close, have a message at the ticket counter saying this movie shows a commercial, etc. NOPE they trap you in darkness, with the fear that if you leave or arrive late you will miss the first few minutes of the movie. Honestly, If something Im excited for has a commercial, Id have a hard time leaving - but it's NEVER happened, it's only the shitty ones that need the ads. But really, the theaters will give you your money back, but you must tell them why.
I've returned DVDs that do not allow you to FF through previews - and I'm just about to start with the "You wouldn't steal a car...." Piracy bullshit. I already bought the damn DVD, and you're preaching to me about "piracy = stealing". ( Piracy is not stealing, piracy is copyright infringement, losses to the seller are inconsequential and immeasureable). But again....it's all how it's presented.
Back to the subject at hand - I sincerly hope this doesn't have slowdowns; the trailer made me a bit anxious. If this has framerate issues, I am going to be VERY upset. I care about gameplay and smooth framerates, what's with all the games with framerate issues? This is suppossed to be next gen. I hope this is not a sign of things to come.
