1546  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / New Star Trek Trailer on: November 18, 2008, 06:34:40 PM

Reminds me of Star Trek: Enterprise. And that show sucked.

Visually it looks stunning (What doesn't these days?), but I'm not too sure about this. It looks like it's just another movie to please the fans with canon nonsense instead of just being a good movie, which is what was annoying to me about the TNG movies.

What Dincrest said. I don't understand why people can't wrap their heads around the fact that human lives are worth more than other animals. If you were to tell me that there was something that hurts or kills animals for the sake of fun or entertainment like Cannibal Holocaust, I'd be behind you on stopping that because it's unnecessary.

Also after like eight years I'm not sure I can even safely consume meat anymore anyway.

I'm sure you'd be fine, our bodies are made to eat things like that.

That was fucking hilarious.

Trailer took forever to load for me, but yeah, I agree I really don't like Rorschach's voice. For some reason I always imagined he'd sound like The Blank from Dick Tracy. =P

It's rated R; for me that's a good sign, that they're taking chances and not doing some bullshit editing just so they can get the main target audience for comic book movies.

Watchmen was a pretty multi-layered comic though- I doubt a single movie can do the plot justice. No matter what, I don't think people are going to be satisfied.

There's a lot of movies that sound stupid but end up being alright, and plenty of movies that sounds awesome but end up sucking ass. As long as this movie doesn't take itself too seriously I'm sure it can be a fun time.

Wouldn't you consider it a pretty bad idea to file a lawsuit against a guy who's known for beating the shit out of people to gather clues?

Uh, not exactly. How many MMOs have you played? Gold farming, from all my MMO experiences, isn't something that's mandatory- the only thing it does it let you get gear that is much better than the cheaper alternatives you could use that that level, or it lets you buy something off the auction house instead of questing/treasure hunting for it yourself, which would take more time.

The good thing about WoW is that gold doesn't seem to be nearly as important as other games put currency in. Most of the best stuff is soulbound stuff that doesn't cost a penny, if I'm not mistaken.

Considering how gil seller is profitable enough that they actually keep coming back even though we get monthly gil sellers bans in FFXI, I don't think this tax is going to make it go anywhere. If anything this is only a good thing, gold selling wouldn't go away if it was "legitimate" or not, as long as people are willing to pay the absurd prices they set for it.

That's lame, but this is a communist nation we're talking about. I'm surprised they didn't do this earlier.

What does being communist have anything to do with taxing a business that makes so much money?

And really, a lot of gold farmers in China work in sweatshop-type stores and don't make that much money- it's the companies that buy the money in bulk like IGE that makes the absurd amounts of cash off of it. This will probably raise the prices on gold and online currency, so it can only be a good thing I suppose.

As far as terms of service goes, it's all up to the game creators themselves to make sure they have people to uphold the policies and ban the gold sellers/farmers. If the economy is going to hell in a video game, usually I would just blame the creators for not taking any action. This was very apparent in FFXI- the instant the company started actually giving a damn about gil sellers and banning them, the economy problem fixed itself slowly.

If you play MNK, you're gonna want to level WAR eventually anyway- you need Warrior as a subjob once you reach level 18 (Which is when you get a subjob).

Did some random killing in Sacrarium and I got one of these babies:


Also went for a Dynamis run with Beacon for the first time, and i got a crappy AF2 item.
Well, it was free, so I'm not complaining (If you consider using 5 friggin' charges of a reraise hairpin as "free"). :P


I took a picture of some of my sky LS peeps. This was the best picture I could get since people didn't really want to gather, I suppose. We did Kirin and got absolutely garbage drops- I'm not even gonna bother posting it.


My second chocobo has grown to adolescence...

And it's going to be black. Hmm.

Personally, I liked both Obama and McCain (Though Ron Paul is still awesome :P), but the deal breaker between those two for me was Palin.

Trust me, if you're only around level 10, it's not worth transfering your character. =P

By the way, server transfer IS instant. It costs $30 and it is more or less instantaneous (Which is what has led to constant abuse of it by account hackers), but like I said, not worth it if you've only played a few hours.

Pretty much all of us are on Leviathan, so you might want to come here unless you're on Alexander to play with your friends.
