Thinking about it, I now recall that I used mods to change the appearance of most of DA:O. I modded:
- Alistair
- Morrigan
- Leliana
- Wynne
- Sten
(no mods for Oghren or Zevran because I don't like them; not because they look any good)

In DA2 though, the only character I modded was Aveline (I've spoken prior of my opinion of her chin/jaw)

I guess the DA2 characters did look better.

Same here. Although I played the games several times on 360 before I played a modded version on PC.

Keep is being released soon right? Is there a release date?
Keep's open beta started yesterday.

Marvel is still a business. Building that hype machine might seem exhausting, but it also establishes a comfortable framework to build their business forecasts around. I'd imagine it's 100% a business choice.

If Marvel's business decisions were limited to just enforcing deadlines I wouldn't really have that big of a problem with them, but they often also make direct decisions that make the movies much worse IMO.

Just read/watch, say, Jon Favreau and Mickey Rourke's comments on Iron Man 2 for an example.

And here I thought the way I treat my pennames was weird (one of them has her own Steam and PSN accounts)...

(But I guarantee I'm the real me here!)

@Starmongoose: Some kind of alter ego you mean? No, it wasn't that literal. It was more like a projection of me that goes out of my own personality, if that make sense to you.

Either way, I did this projection for so long that now whatever perception there is of my person under this nickname here is a bit of mess to say the least since it sort of became its own thing that I have no control over.

Ah well. As strange as this might sound I already found what I was searching for some time ago, so this account served more than one purpose on my end.

I think studio execs are the ones that wanted 3 hobbits not jackson. As far as those go I have tremendous patience with long movies.

I disagree with the second movies kit being good. Cap'n 2 was leagues better than the first and Thor 2 was solid.  Iron man 2 and 3 were lousy tiho

News bloopers:

That or just check out the best part of the bloopers:

His reaction is golden.

^ I love any TV bloopers and funny commercials.  Two things unrelated to the actual programming on TV get their weight in golden material.

This will never NOT be funny.  The best line in an anime ever.

OK Go has a new video.  This time complete with JAPANESE SCHOOL GIRLS (got your attention didn't I?), umbrellas, and those stupid Uni-Cub things.  But as usual for this band, it's a complete spectacle and by the end I don't know if it's real cuz it's just that unbelievable.

Definitely digging the tune and loved that ending. :)

Slight correction, Sony owns Spider-Man, not Fox.

Well, first Hobbit was good fun. Second one got really rocky at times.

Anyways, I liked most of the Marvel movies so far...well, the first one in each series at least. Every two has sucked so far, except the X-Men "past" one. Both of those are actually my favorites so far. And Guardians of the Galaxies was so good I actually went out and bought the comics, though I've still yet to read them. I'm glad they're letting us know what's coming down the pipeline, although I'll probably forget what's coming out until a few months before their releases...

I feel like the second Hobbit was probably where Jackson + crew either thought they could get away with splitting the movie into 2 or realized that they needed far more time to really dive into the whole Battle of Five Armies thing the way that they would rather than treat it like a footnote (which is more or less exactly what it was to begin with) and further realized that there wasn't a good stopping point for a movie break since again, the Battle of the Five Armies was part of the story's Aesop and not that consequential to the main character Bilbo Baggins. Not helping matters is the elevated importance of both Thorin Oakshield and Legolas, the latter wasn't even involved in the previous versions (or maybe had a brief cameo, idk), and the former is basically the not-so-stealth protagonist now (practically hijacking it from Bilbo at times despite him being the one telling the story since its largely about his role in it, being one of the few survivors of the adventure and all).

Also, the X-Men: Days of Future Past one was done by 20th Century Fox and not by Marvel (since 19XXFox holds the license to make movies based upon Spiderman, Fantastic Four, X-Men and a couple of other things. This incidentally led to a conflict of character rights in regards to Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch since both are X-Men (Magneto's children in fact) and official Avengers (which Marvel Studios holds the license for), which led to both series shoehorning in early cameos of their version of the characters (so now there's two actors and actresses playing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch respectfully).

And honestly, sequelitis is a problem with Superhero movies in general since the first one is establishing the character and by the second you already know the score, plus the series best villain is usually used for the first movie which leaves the second either running with second stringers (or in the case of Batman; doubling down on villains since he has so many good ones).

Playing Jade Empire and I'm digging it.

Pretty standard Bioware stuff in some ways but the setting is cool and I like the combat.

It's just different enough that it doesn't feel like a rehash of stuff they've done before.
