@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:28 PM)

If you can forget about that garbage Ghost in the Shell feature...

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

@  Sabrblade : (10 September 2018 - 06:34 PM)

Hey, Steve is a Vehicon!

@  abates : (10 September 2018 - 04:44 PM)

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (07 September 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Funny thing is, I think the pocket edition graphics give the game more personality.

@  MEDdMI : (06 September 2018 - 11:10 PM)

Final Finception

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

Scar Jo has already done too many movies too close to this since she first portrayed Black Widow.

I'm not outright against this, but I will need convincing to get on board.

Count me as cautiously optimistic this movie does well. Scarlett Johannson is a damn good actress, but I fear if things go wrong, this could end up like Solo did - people complaining that it wasn't necessary despite being a decent film.

I'v always found Black Widow super dull as a character. She's generic Russian sexy super spy #2343. She's fine as a supporting character but in her own she's just a generic action movie cliche.

A Black Widow film might be the first Marvel film I purposely skip. And I love Marvel films.

-ZacWilliam, unless they give her a superhero co-star who's fun and/or a trailer that is Thor: Ragnarok level kick ass I can't imagine caring.

I thought we already got a Black Widow film... like it had Hunger Games in it or something.  Red Sparrow or something rather.

put hawkeye in it too. they seem to work well together, and theyve got the history. i just dont think widow by herself would be interesting enough. give her someone to work off of and it might work

 

ill still it regardless...

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I fear this may be Marvel's first misstep, although I hope not.

 

Admittedly, online reaction is probably no way to judge how a movie might perform, but this is the first Marvel flick where I'm seeing apathy. And there's also outright hostility to the project from a fairly vocal crowd who are just generally upset with Scarlett Johannson over the whitewashing controversy for Ghost in the Shell, as well as the recently announced project in which she'd have been playing a transgendered character. Although she did pull out of the latter, people aren't likely to forget or give her a break for it.

I think at this point it's too little, too late for a Black Widow movie to do gangbusters.  It'll do fine but it won't break out like a Black Panther.

 

Ironbite-mostly because Johansan's movie choices have been....shit.

She has the second highest net worth of any of the MCU actors (RDJ is the highest). So she must have made some good decisions.

Black Widow is barely a superhero, has never been interesting in any of the movies, and doesn't matter to the plot anymore.

Cancel this and make a Shuri movie. Or even Scarlet Witch.

this should not be a prequel, the time for that story to be told is well and truly lost to Marvel. It'd be like killing Ben Parker again... we don't need it.

 

what we do need is a movie that shows a) Why she should still be on the Avengers team and b) why she even wants to be on the Avengers team.

 

these are the 2 lingering question the character has left that can be exploited for plot.
