Albinoman: Also, T-rex, allosaurus, etc. are more like giant crocodiles, not running around on land. Powerful tale, legs built for launching, eyes and nostrils at the top of their head. If you look at a T-rex foot, they look like the swimming foot of a crocodile with long, relatively slender bones. Not the small, rounder bones used to support large amounts of weight. Their little "arms" would seem useless, but are perfect when youre belly down scooting along the bottom of a lake or river.
ReapTheChaos: Who cares, it's entertainment. Now they'll know how I feel whenever I watch a movie with the U.S. Air Force in it. Just sit there shaking your head thinking; Nope that's wrong. Sorry, it doesn't work that way. Bullshiat, that could never happen.

Sorry, it doesn't work that way. Bullshiat, that could never happen.So kinda like any time Hollywood shows characters doing anything on a computer, even selling something on eBay?
Fano: shiat, they can't even accurately portray the making of movies or what actors do with their time, who thinks they can handle anything else?
Samwise Gamgee: Mugato: FreetardoRivera: Mugato: They wrote in a plot device to explain why they could take creative license with the dinosaur designs. They spliced frog DNA with the dino DNA so they're not going to be exactly like the dinos from 30 million years ago. And since they already established raptors as not having feathers, it would be internally inconsistent to suddenly give them feathers in the sequel.You paleo-nerds had hundreds of years to let everyone know that some dinos had feathers. It's too late to whine about the depictions of them now.5/10What does 5/10 mean?1/2, or .5 or 50%

Just sit there shaking your head thinking; Nope that's wrong. Sorry, it doesn't work that way. Bullshiat, that could never happen.I watched Red Dawn with a bunch of military guys and they all started laughing when they showed the Nork paratroopers.
nocturnal001: Raptors with feathers might be scary, but a Trex would look simply retarded.As a kid I was a dino fanatic, but as I got older and started keeping reptiles as pets the whole thing was confusing regarding body temperature. Dinos wouldn't be cold blooded and be that large, but being warm blooded without fur/feathers would be a huge waste of energy.
CygnusDarius: Erix: LordJiro: JP would totally be paleontologically accurate if the dinosaurs had feathers! Never mind the acid-spitting dilophosaurs and the Deinonychus-sized velociraptors.And the Deinonychus-sized Dilophosaurs..And Dogson.[images.wikia.com image 500x271]
Kurmudgeon: RAWR!Don't laugh, chickens are nasty little bastards. They'll happily eat other, their young, or you if they could.This announcement doesn't really surprise me./KFD
Smackledorfer: Threads like this make me wish I owned EVO for the snes (no I don't want to play it on my computer).
SharkaPult: I would imagine it's probably 1000 times easier with the any-time save and load capability of an emulator.
Dinodork: I am totally staying out of this one.
scottydoesntknow: Khellendros: scottydoesntknow: [www.walkingwithdinosaurs.com image 800x400]Nah, the truth is way more interesting.[imgs.xkcd.com image 740x234]Meh, I still prefer my raptors to have the raw power to take down prey right there, not flap above it like a seagull caught in a woman's hair.
