" his weakness to fire." i can see the battle now: "you may have beat me to a bloody pulp, broken both my legs and shattered my spine, but i have a LIT MATCH!! whatre you gonna do NOW???"

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:35 PM)

he's also addicted to Oreos. so, two weaknesses. :p

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:34 PM)

I remember Justice League left out his eye beams and played down his strength a bit, which I presume was done to help deifferentiate him from Superman.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:32 PM)

There's a reason why he's considered one of the most powerful of the JLA. Only one they can depend on to defeat him is Plastic Man, due to his brain's malleability.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:27 PM)

Wow, reading about all his powers, he's actually kind of overpowered aside from his weakness to fire.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Martian Manhunter can disguise himself as anyone, shrink, grow, become invisible, stretch out his limbs, pop out extra arms, change his arms into blades, do all sorts of psychic stuff...

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Which is kind of dumb. Aside from being a super-strong flying alien with eye beams that wears a cape and has super senses, there's a lot of differences.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:18 PM)

the higher-ups at WB apparently consider Martian Manhunter redundant- a "green Superman." that''s suposedly why hes left out.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:16 PM)

I wouldn't mind seeing them put Steel in one of the DCEU movies, as long as they're better than the last three.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:12 PM)

Really, he should be one of the easiest JL members to cast. You can take any guy of any race who's muscular enough for the role. It'd probably piss off the purists who want everything to be as close to the comics as possible, but you can't do anything without pissing them off.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Foffy's right. I mean, they don't have to keep Martian Manhunter white. He can disguise himself as any race.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

@Paladin I feel like Martian Manhunter would probably be played by a black actor anyway, though? I mean, his VAs in both the DCAU and The Batman were african american. Also, movies are a separate medium from comics.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

He's, like, the least interesting Earth GL.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Hal Jordan is honestly a really boring character.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:04 PM)

I mean, I don't hate Aquaman or Hal Jordan, but I like Martian Manhunter a lot more.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:02 PM)

Meh, if I were then I would have just used John Stewart as Green Lantern, but I'd also have used Wally West instead of Barry Allen.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 05:59 PM)

because then WB has a reason/excuse to actually cast a black guy in the movie.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Nah, just stick him on a Wildstorm title, great idea.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Like, it's nice have Cybog getting his dues, but you could've have had him replaced Aquaman, not the guy who's literally been on every incarnation of the team and is it's heart and soul.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:51 PM)

Why on the New 52, Martian Manhunter isn't one of the finding JLA members.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:50 PM)

You know what I'll never understand?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 05:01 PM)

There are shops with lots of pre-owned stuff like Mandarake, so it doesn't necessarily need to be retail, depending on where he's going.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 04:01 PM)

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 03:46 PM)

The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]This eye is derived from the primarynaupliar eye." Huh.

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

I mean, seriously...

Is it THAT hard to program a port to PC? Really? And their reason is, get this... "because it?s outside the area of expertise".

Yes, the game using the same engine as WFC is outside the expertise for the same programmers who made WFC, suuuure.

Now I could go on about how we should hire Death's Head to force them to release the game to PC, but how about realistically? What could we do?

Would sending payment WELL in advance to pre-order the game for PC convince them? (IE, now?) 'Cause I would... and I bet many others would.

Well... I was looking forward to FoC, but being a PC gamer, I guess I won't be playing it.

No, I'll tell you what this is. PC gamers expect more options. Screen resolution, FoV, texture options, a whole slew of graphics and gameplay settings that are common on PC games, while, from what I've seen, console gamers don't have, in part because they don't need them. I've noticed that often Console to PC ports will lack many of these options, suggesting that it may take a lot of work to add them after the fact.

Probably they just don't want to have to do that.

It would make a lot more sense than for the same guys who made WfC to suddenly declare they don't know how to make a PC game. WfC seemed to work quite well and I had a lot of fun with it on PC, but hey... I guess that's forty to fifty bucks I just saved. Makes me wonder if I really want that FoC Jazz as much now.


Oh who am I kidding, I'll have to get Jazz XD

It's especially surprising they'd cite these reasons, when WFC has gotten extremely good reviews for PC as well. And I never experienced any performance issues either.

I will never buy a console to play ONE game.

And don't tell me about other console games... I keep track of what's coming out, none of them interest me. My gaming interests are Turn-Based and Real-Time Strategies, RPGs, puzzle games, and Diablo-like action RPGs - while most stuff on consoles are 'vanilla' hack and slash RPGs (basically, FPS with a sword), FPSs, God of War like action games, and of course, various racing/flying simulators.

I was the same way when Transformers Tatakai was made for PS2. I was not gonna buy a PS2 (and modchip it) to play ONE game that interest me.

I might borrow a console from a friend, or go to him and play the game, that's all. But already all the modding possibilites are totally lost for FoC, and imagine what talented modders could have done with a TF game containing combiners and Dinobots. icon-screamer.gif

Crap in a hat.

I don't have the funds for a console jump, I've been getting by on portables and my left over PS2/Steam library for ages.


This annoys me a lot, but at the same time, considering how badly they handled the PC side of things on WFC, I'm not surprised (No server/room migration, no checks on cheater/hackers, no DLC cause they are jerks).

Disappointing I suppose. I played WfC on the PC. I prefer PC with mouse/keyboard for shooter games. However, I found WfC pretty annoying in robot mode with the perspective forced to the side of the character. And none of the bonus content came out for PC either, so I am not entirely surprised they aren't making this one for it.

I probably won't get FoC (or if I do, not until well after release).

What poor job? It ran absolutely fine for me, only froze/crashed maybe once through my walkthroughs, and despite me turning the graphics up to max (on a dual-core pentium with 2 GB ram and an ASUS 8600 GT card) it had barely any lag at all.

They didn't for the DOTM game... Though I am not sure that one used the same engine. I mean, WFC/FoC still uses the Unreal engine.

Was that Pre-1976?

My Grandfather had a Commodore 64 (I think it's probably still in their basement.) I played a few games he programmed in for it. But we were always a console family. Collecovision with Atari attatchment. Then NES. Then, well every single major console (and some minor) released since then.

We had a couple computers during my childhood, but other than a stint with one of the Space Quest games, and Jeopardy, and You Don't Know Jack it didn't get gamed on much.

Console games just always seemed superior to me. You didn't ever have to worry about wether your system would run them or not or if you'd have to buy new hardware or patch or program or would just be out of luck. You just put the game in and played.


-ZacWilliam, to this day is uncomfortable gaming at his PC. I'd much rather be in a comfy chair with a controller and a big HD tv.

There is no reason people cannot put the effort in to make a good port and thereby gain additional income from the product.
