Beijing is a shithole and if the athletes had any conscience, they wouldn't even be there.

And if you had any conscience you'd go have yourself a nice cup of Drano.

Even so, I still find it hilarious that the folks at Capcom decided to do this on their own. Gotta love the 80s when games have terrible box art but have great gameplay inside. It's the opposite a lot nowadays. =P
1683  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Hey, look. It's a terrible idea for a new Sonic game. on: August 09, 2008, 12:38:46 PM

Didnít the Sonic reboot on the 360 still sell surprisingly well despite being one of the worst games released for the console? I guess for some reason people still trust the Sonic name. No idea why.

As I recall, the Sonic 360 game was subpar on many levels, but far from being one of the worst games on the system.

One of the main complaints I constantly hear about that game is that it had so much potential if they just fixed the obvious flaws in the game- and really, those flaws, from what I can gather, could be easily fixed with just a few test plays.

Uh, wow. I thought you were joking with that, but apparently that's the "official" boxart.

Every movie that i've seen with Jolie in it is FUCKING AWFUL!!

Wanted was okay. Don't understand why people hate on Jolie so much.

Despite the really bad interpretations in the movies, there are plenty of comic books that make good use of her.

I actually thought Batman Returns had a pretty good Catwoman. But that character belongs in a Burton movie and would definately not fit in Nolan's films.

I know she had a bad movie a few years ago, but if the Hulk could get over that, surely Catwoman can too?

Plenty of people liked Hulk (I'm one of them), though I realize why so many people didn't like it. Catwoman was just embarrassing to watch.

If anything, you should bring up Batman and Robin...just to show the irony of this whole situation. :P

omgz, this could be the start of a beautiful...tolerance.

Well you guys know I've been wanting to join you on THF for a while now...all comes down to when you guys run though. About 10k TNL to 75 and I'm going to dedicate myself to meriting for a while after I hit 75.

And Fei, I doubt you have to buy a new copy of the game to start playing again if all you did was simply cancel your content IDs.

Kind of funny how much attention and detail the Koreans are always giving to the characters' boobs.

If this is what the game looks like in real time I might actually try it out for laughs. I'm a bit disappointed how vacuous and boring the character faces look though.

The art looks like it's from the Magna Carta guy...love his art. =P

How is overrated not intended to be a negative thing? Overrated means to rate or appraise too highly. TOO HIGHLY.
My issue with the term is that there is ALWAYS someone that comes in to almost every thread and says that whatever the people are talking about is overrated.

Then your problem is just generally with people who look like they're just doing it for the sake of going against the majority...honestly I don't think the majority of the people on this site overrated The Dark Knight- but some of the praise it's getting is pretty ridiculous. Nevertheless, I love the film, probably just as much as most of the people around here.

There are plenty of places to take both Bruce Wayne and Batman.
Bane could break his back, thus revealing to the world who he really is. Riddler is always an option. Catwoman of course. Talia al Ghul would of course be an interesting villain. Trying to get back at Batman for her father. And there is always Ra's al Ghul coming back. You mentioned Two Face.

With the history that Batman has there are a LOT of options for new movies.

Well I actually didn't mean Batman didn't have a wealth of stories to draw from (With the amount of stories he has they could easily make movies until the day I die), but rather what they can do with the established character in the movie continuity itself. Both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight had very strong central themes and a direction Bruce Wayne's character could advance. The Dark Knight has established that his job as Batman is now a lifelong job...a very bittersweet ending (Mostly bitter), but everything that happens from this point on is going to be "fight next villain". I know there's more to it than that, but I think you know what I mean.

I guess my problem isn't whether or not they will make another movie (Because they're going to until they stop bringing in cash, which is probably never if they keep the tone dark), but whether any movies from now on are going to have the kind of strong development for the character Bruce Wayne that can carry an entire film.

Sephiroth...bad fanfiction or something :P

Funny. A few weeks ago I was talking with Dios and some other people on Skype and Dios told a bad fanfiction about Sephiroth...though I'm sure the majority of you that know him probably have heard it years ago.

There's nothing universally considered overrated.

Daggerstrike's post can be overly simplified into basically "everyone has their own opinions and just because everyone chose to like something doesn't mean it's overrated." So by saying that I can just say that I think it's overrated and just because everyone else thinks its not doesn't make it so that it's not...it's just an endless argument.

And just remember kids, overrated does NOT mean bad.

That's pretty much the point I always try to make. I don't understand such knee-jerk reactions to calling something overrated.

As for all this discussion of the next films and whether or not
Two Face is actually dead

is all purely speculation. Personally I think it should just be left as a duology though- like I said, where else can you take Bruce Wayne's character?
1692  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Dark Knight on: July 26, 2008, 03:46:27 AM
Under that assumption, nothing that ever existed can be considered overrated.
1693  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Dark Knight on: July 23, 2008, 09:29:50 PM
If he doesn't like unrealistic villains that crosses off about 90% of them. The only ones I can think of are The Riddler, The Mad Hatter, Catwoman, and Talia Al Ghul (Who I doubt can appear since Ra's Al Ghul is dead and all).

I really don't know where they can take the story from here. It's going to be hard to top this one.
1694  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Dark Knight on: July 22, 2008, 11:40:23 PM
Depends on how much you got into the hype I guess. Some of the hype was, and still is, ridiculous. If you were just expecting it to satisfy the Batman fans than it definately far exceeded that.

I realize there's a moral, but it felt like the moral was buried when pretty much

evil was winning the majority of the time

That's not really a complaint, mind you, just that that's why I think parents complaing about it.


As a note, when I say "overrated", I mean just that- overrated. This is still easily the best film I've seen this year, and any complaints I might have with it are probably just nitpicking at this point.

Everyday I ask myself why guys like breasts so much...

Probably because it symbolizes fertility in most mammals.

In case none of you want to read that page, I'm going to quote the best thing from that page:

Other sentient species retained strong breastfeeding traditions as well: female Wookiees had six breasts, which they used to nurse their large litters of cubs.

female Wookiees had six breasts, which they used to nurse their large litters of cubs.

female Wookiees had six breasts

female Wookiees had six breasts

female Wookiees had six breasts

You may now start picturing Chewbacca doing his famous roar while six tiny wookies (Or if Lucas was directing, six of Chewbacca himself) nurse off of him.
