    Yup, I think you could only play the first 6 missions on easy. And if you beat it on Medium it would stop before the final boss and tell you to try Hard mode. But I was able to beat it on Hard cause I'm cool like that 8) No auto-save, no wussy infinite continues. When you're dead it's back to start buddy.

    I never said I disagreed with BlackStar. I was merely pointing out that not everything was original in the eighties, most but not all. I thought the 1989 Batman was a pretty good movie, and I love Star Trek: TNG. Just because something is based on something else doesn’t mean it’s bad or unprofitable.

    Oh, I'm not saying you disagree with BlackStar. And I agree with your final quote. I was just happy to read what he said and had to point it out, lol.

    I was merely reiterating the statement he made where the 80's and 90's did a good job remaking things from the past. There's a sense of originality in the '89 Batman film, or TNG, or the 90's X-Men animated series. Because they feel like they've been re-invented so to speak. But in the past 12 years all that integrity of bringing something new to an existing film or series has been thrown out the window. The only reboot within the past decade that (to me) truly feels like it's something new and innovative are Nolan's Batman movies.

    But hey, it's a different era now. Today we have HD and super fast internet, not too shabby.

    Yeah those are good. I also really liked the Star Trek reboot, that franchise was near death because of some very very bad TNG movies and Star Trek: Enterprise the worst of the TV series in my opinion.

    Sorry if I was too defensive, but I thought you were dismissing my point entirely. Friends? :)

    God, Nemesis and Insurrection were SOOOOOO bad. Enterprise was more mediocre.... mediocre in the sense that season one was pretty meh, season two make you want to vomit, season three was alright and season four was actually pretty good. It's too bad that it took them 3 whole seasons before they figured out what worked best for the show.

    But yeah, the reboot is a really good thing for the franchise.

    Also, for all you nerds who care, my brother saw Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy a few days ago at UCLA. Quinto said the new Star Trek movie starts filming in 5 months.
