Sorry, but I really take issue with this perspective. Superman is a superhero, bUT he isn't perfect.
It may be headcanon to some, but to me superman learned how to be a superhero as a young man by spending time with the Legion of Super Heroes in the far future, who showed him the basics. You really need to learn how to avoid property damage when fighting someone with a power level like superman- you don't start off being able to save everyone while beating up the bad guy without breaking a sweat, it takes lots and lots of practice. In a reality where this didn't happen, you would end up with what we saw in man of steel - keep in mind hen was attacked by someone just as powerful as he was for the first time EVER - he's not going to know what to do other than defend himself, which he did well. The scads of death that people attribute to superman was something done by zod and his legbreakers, primarily by knocking superman through things.
Despite my ongoing feud with Dragon Age, I will always love how they portrayed dwarves in the setting. Very, very, very well done.
I really liked Man of Steel as well. I know it has detractors, but I worry a lot of people viewed it through lenses set to nostalgia. It was darker but not hopeless or depressing. And Cavill is a great superman!
What got me was the sadness as Superman did what he had to in the fight against Zod. Imagine meeting someone of your own kind for the first time...well, ever, and he ends up being a space nazi. I'd be sad and horrified too.

holy shut someone else who liked man of steel! I liked the movie very much and found the complainers to be boorish in their views.

Dude. I keep hearing the legends of Japanese green tea Kit Kat, and finally tracked it down at a Cost Plus in San Jose. Only ~ $26.67 per pound! Seriously. I spent $7.99 for a 4.8 ounce bag. Ludicrous. Chances are, this is the only time I'll ever get to try this because of the cost.
WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE?!?!?!??!?!?!!
this could also be because you aren't into tactical games. They taught me early on that as important as the main character is, they can't do everything by themselves.
and the permadeath nature of combat. I'd never get anywhere in an FE game, I can guarantee you, because I'd be constantly restarting to keep people from dying.
This has been addressed in the most recent incarnation, fire emblem awakening.

Lynora, please pick the more flattering/flirtatious option, as you prefer.
However, I was speaking on a larger scale- games where the main character as created by the player was exclusive in class to the point of outshining everyone around them(note-not that they had exclusive abilities, mind) is a relatively recent invention in gaming, seen far more often in the PS1 and later eras and less in the Snes and lower generations.

one of the best lines in the entire series.
Excellent treatment of aquaman.
The Fire Emblem series is similar in that, while the characters cannot switch classes*, they are all working together to tell a singular story. What's more, just as in Tactics, making the Protagonist too powerful levels up everything on the field with him, meaning you want keep your people relatively balanced. (It's also way too easy to become over-reliant on either your Protag, or certain powerful Cohorts, and then you're stuck facing an army of level 12s when all your guys are basically 5s except for those two, and ARG WHY DID I DO THAT, THIS PLAY-THROUGH IS RUINED.
berg-bumpAlso, Baldurs Gate.
let's not do this, guys. This anime was about a horrible moment in history, noone was thinking straight, and they didn't know much about the situation other than that they were living in it. this is also the same conflict that had civilians commit suicide rather than surrender when starving because they legitimately believed the enemy forces had would either take over their bodies, eat them in turn, or something else even more outlandish/impossible. Don't judge their madness by your sanity, especially removed by years and knowledge of nuclear fallout.
sounds well played. Is this tabletop or on the server?
Afternoon FaWtLers, hope everyone is well today. Hey, remember when I joked about saying the weather was clear for so long was going to bring the rain? Well guess who got soaked walking to work today? :P Ah well, sunny again by lunchtime. And at least I'm not buried in snow! (Though a light smattering would be nice before the time of year has passed. I'm looking at you Freehold!)
sorry man, I was wooing lynora with snow, lemme send some your way.
You do indeed have cold-cred. I daresay you are my bro-berg.

Interesting stuff, TL. I could almost not hate it.
