Personally I don't think Snyder understood any of the things that Alan Moore was trying to show with Watchmen, he just directly copied comic panels and let people interpret it the same way they did the comic.

Though I did like the new ending- that's actually one of the things that brought me around, believe it or not.

Am I the only one who can't stand Christian Bale? Why is he getting so many high-profile roles? He underreacts/doesn't react to almost everything.

And of course he's bringing that Batman voice over as well.

Nevertheless, it looks alright. I might check it out, though these days I find that Hollywood seems to be better realizing the shallow formula for making people hype up a trailer.

Er, I might've gotten it the opposite- that season 3 was the bad one and the first 2 were the ones I've enjoyed. It's been a while since I've watched any of TOS, heh.

For me, DS9 seasons 3-6 were the best Trek had to offer. The first two seasons of DS9 were pretty dull, and the seventh and final season was...bad, to say the least. TNG from season 3 onwards was pretty good. For TOS, season 3 was the best of it, first 2 seasons were really dull a lot of the time.

I hated Voyager, though I will admit there a couple good episodes spread throughout, and Enterprise is so unspeakably bad that I don't really want to talk about it at all.

Yeah, a bit too long. I liked it though.

Eh I was meaning to say that First Contact sucks, but I think I'm in the minority for that, heh.

Star Trek IMHO hasn't not sucked since First Contact DS9.

My black chocobo passed it's raising time, and it's head off to the stables to spend the rest of its life.

38/50 on assaults now. I haven't gotten any FLs done though, so that'll be pretty tough to finish off.

I joined a ZNM LS. Pretty lightweight one, but I'm not particularly interested in the Hachiryu set, so eh. I'm slightly interested in the Enkidu set, but I'm certainly in no hurry to get that.

Finally done with Nyzul Isle.

Unless I ever play PLD, BST, DNC, SCH, or DRG I guess. 15/20 weapons, har har, and I just broke my second one!

Salvage is being stingy, which means it's "working as intended", to quote the sadistic SE employees who clearly have never played their own damn game.

But really, none of that is important compared to what I had just finished- picture heavy post gogo. I know most of you have seen these scenes, but I just really like them so I'm going to post them anyway. =P

Following these, of course, is what many people consider the definitive cutscene of the entire game. It's shown in full-screen (No chat log, no status bars, etc), and, surprisingly (Unless you bought the soundtrack =P) a vocal song is played throughout.

The journey began in the opening CG cutscene of them game, with the Orcish siege on Tavnazia, and here is what is easily the biggest adventure in FFXI ends as well.

I'm not really sure if anything will make me feel the way this mission series has for the game anymore. They've more or less revealed the origin of the world to us, so nothing from here on out can be as interesting or engaging as this has been. I guess I'll still do endgame stuff and do the WOTG missions as they come out, but I can't help but feel empty (a har har) at the end of all this.
Certainly, I can still do Storms of Fate and Apocalypse Nigh, but the former just seems far too stressful for me to accomplish with the resources I have available to me.

In Star Trek X (Nemesis), a human clone of Captain Picard overthrew the Romulan empire and tried to attack Earth (For no real apparent reason, which is why so many people didn't like that film), and of course good guys win, stuff blows up, yadda yadda, we learn more about humanity. I think. Star Trek X sucked.

If you haven't seen any Star Trek movies and are not a fan, the only one I would recommend is Star Trek 2, which is one of the best science fiction films I've ever seen, if not simply one of the best films I've seen. It's certainly a personal favorite of mine. The rest of them can be passed up, in my opinion.

And I think I've made it obvious how I feel about the film. I'm gonna give it a chance, but I'm certainly not a fan of the marketing strategy they're putting out right now.
1691  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: So I guess stating your a lesbian on xbox live is a bannable offense. on: February 27, 2009, 04:32:55 AM
My whole thought on it was that it had nothing to do with the fact that she was a lesbian, but rather that she shouldn't have accused Microsoft of taking this action just because she was one.

In most online gaming communities I have experienced, from Starcraft to FFXI to some closed chatrooms, the admin(s)/GM are too busy to look through individual cases (or if they do, they do it very briefly, unless you're lucky and you get one of the nice ones)- as you said, reaction-by-routine, and resort to player reports to determine any disruptive behavior.

Thus, like I said, it's ass-backwards users that are to blame, not Microsoft.
1692  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: So I guess stating your a lesbian on xbox live is a bannable offense. on: February 26, 2009, 06:55:27 PM
It has nothing to do with what the company thinks- they have to take action if enough forms are submitted about any one user, and obviously a ton of them did for this person. They banned/suspended her because her profile "was offensive to other members of XBL", not because she's gay or whatever. If you're going to be pissed, be pissed at the dumb-ass users that harassed her, not Microsoft.

If you ask me, I think she was asking for trouble just for putting "I'm a lesbian" in her profile. Why would you do that for a gaming community? This is the type of thing you should restrict to telling your friends on XBL, at most.

Sounds to me you answered your own question there.

I love exploring, Tebian. However, in recent expansions, it's been made a lot harder because of the high-level monsters, along with a tendency towards making true-sight and true-sound enemies somewhat common. This generally spells too much danger for an explorer, and I really don't want to waste oils and powders when I just want to go exploring around an area anyway.

Another rare item from assault, <mine>.


A salvage report, although you all probably already know given that most of you guys saw me at Dynamis already. :P

Somewhere, a WAR is crying.

2/5 pieces, woo. Not sure if I should go for legs or feet next, though I'm leaning towards legs simply because the feet are a bitch to get (in shout groups there's always like 3-4 people lotting it), and I might start a static soon, so if that takes off, I'm better off trying to get feet in that.
1695  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recommend a Horror Film! on: February 21, 2009, 06:05:41 PM
When it comes to scary movies, I'm not a fan of slasher or torture films.  So you won't see me anywhere near Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Saw.

While Saw is quite gory (It's also incredibly stupid and convoluted), as I recall The Texas Chainsaw Massacre really didn't have that much gore, despite its name. The first one didn't, anyway.

Another vote for Halloween here, definately.

Here's a couple that I love that immediately come to mind:
Silence of the Lambs
Jaws (Arguable if this is horror or not)
The Omen
The Shining
The Thing (1982)

Of course there's still the king of horror films, The Exorcist. That one's...well, you have to see it for yourself.
