1996  Media / Miscellaneous Games / The fighting game thread on: July 22, 2008, 09:12:26 PM
I know alot of people will say this, but Super Smash Bros. is my favorite. I've been playing it since the N64 days and am pretty good at it. I like the Soul Calibur series as well, and can't wait to play #4. Other than that, I used to play the older Mortal Kombat games but lost interest. Tried Dead or Alive and didn't like it, and only have played Tekken 3.

Yeah, this isn't a computer RPG...

Geez, I was just watching the evening news on my local channel and they had a thing on this movie. Parents are complaining that it is too dark, disturbing, and violent for kids. One of the kids that watched is said it bothered him quite a bit and the parent regretted taking them to the movie. Why do parents fail and not look into this stuff before they go see a movie? It isn't that hard...

Code:
The reason two face went after Gordon's family is because when Gordon came out of nowhere to save Batman and captured the Joker while Harvey was in the back of that police truck Gordon sent Harvey and Rachel back to the wherever they where going and it ended up that the people backstabbed Gordon who where in the cars and took them to the places where Rachel ended up dying. Dent felt it was Gordons fault for using people that he thought he could trust, when they ended up being on Jokers side.

I would also like another Parasite Eve game on PS3/360. That cell phone crap ticks me off.

This thread is going to be flooded with people saying Chrono, so I'll be the first to say it. I want a freaking new Chrono game.

Oh no, you did NOT talk smack on The Village. You can hate the other two, but not the Village.


Sorry, but I thought that movie blew chunks. It was a disappointing movie considering it was after the terrific Signs, and started his downward decline into mediocrity. It had a good soundtrack though :P

Wait, M. Night is doing a live-action TRILOGY of films for Avatar? That's just absurd.


Can't get any worse than this last *three* films. OOOOHHHH I went there :P

Well it broke Spider-Man 3's record of the highest grossing weekend and made 155 million dollars. I'm glad to see people are willing to spend money on a GOOD superhero movie.
2005  The Rest / General Discussions / The sports thread on: July 19, 2008, 11:27:26 AM
For me, my one true love besides video games is the NFL. Indianapolis Colts to be a little more specific. I'm freaking out right now because Manning got surgery and will be out for weeks. Not to mention we somehow have to get Harrison back into rhythm. I'm scared :(

Ok. This movie isn't even the best I've seen this month (Wall-E).

I thought Wall-E was good, but it dragged a little in the middle to me. TDK is my favorite movie so far this year. I guess we just have to disagree here :P

If you really want to get into a serious film discussion, i.e., what is a better movie intrinsically, then I think BB was better.

As a movie, it can stand on its own, had a much more engaging singular narrative, the editing and direction were much more solid.

Interestingly, as "popcorn entertainment," I also found it much more enjoyable.

In the same people love Empire Strikes back, however, I think people will love this.

But it's hard to say that ESB is better as a complete film than ANH because ESB can't stand on its own. It doesn't even have an end for God's sake.

This movie also doesn't feel whole or an end--it is a bridge of what's to come...

Also Josh, when you say (top 5 ever) do you mean in terms of your "favorite" or "best"....?

JP


As pure popcorn entertainment, I do agree that BB was better in that respect. I just thought that the character development of the villains and such was better in this movie (obviously Batman had more character development in BB, it was his origin story). The drama in TDK was intense and rewarding for me, much like "The Departed" was. I guess you can say that I thought this movie was more compelling. And by top 5, yes I meant favorites.

As much as I love Batman Begins (in my top 5 movies ever), I think this movie was better. It had better acting (Bale was more confident in the role, Maggie was a better Rachel, and the rest of the cast was ace), a better story, a complex villain, and seriously was just the most entertainment I've gotten out of a movie in years.

Well, seeing as though ME is probably the weakest looking game I've played on the 360, that's probably not saying much. Compared to something like Bioshock or Lost Odyssey, ME was pretty bland and had lots of clipping problems.

Man, you must only play good looking games. ME's no technical milestone, but it's no slouch either.


Agreed. Despite the technical stuff that doesn't run like it should all the time, the game has pretty good graphics. The system can't handle everything that was going on which is why all that crap happens.
2010  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Watchmen trailer! on: July 18, 2008, 11:31:20 AM
Wasn't impressed when I saw it before The Dark Knight last night, but it might have been because I was abhorring anything that was making the wait for The Dark Knight longer.
