How is that bat signal going to look like anything else than a weirdly misshapen rectangle when cast against the clouds? And why is batman a space marine now?

So far I have 0 expectations for this movie.

Read Frank Miller's Batman Returns.

Man, I hear you on that! I had an account on Obsidian Portal and would spend hours posting information, pics, histories, back story information on main NPC's, i.e. tons of work, and show up for gaming with people looking at me blankly when I'd reference something I had put up. The first few times, okay - but when it became apparent people were not availing themselves of it, I was both hurt and annoyed. I finally cancelled my account and stopped doing all the recording and recounting what transpired for them.
My group had an Obsidian Portal account, too. No one used it but me. I quit bothering with it years ago.
We should start a support group. I'm in the same boat.

Me too. And to think that I ever devoted my time to extra world information...

I wonder if this is the appropriate place to ask this, but is anyone else annoyed when they, as a GM, spend a lot of their personal time preparing for game day, and a player (or four) shows up having done absolutely, positively, diddly squat in the intervening time, especially if they gained enough exp for a level and were supposed to level up between sessions, or go shopping between sessions, or make a major decision between sessions, and now you have to wait while they get all that done during table time?

That annoys the living crap out of me, especially when I'm a GM, but even as a player, I look at the others like, "Dude, that guy works his butt off to let us have fun, and you can't even level up in a week's time, you lazy bastard? Oh, but you had time to post on Facebook about how you were out at the bar until 4am pumping drinks into a skank that walked out with another dude? I hate you."

Yes. I usually stop playing with such players.

True, director Alan Taylor knows something about implacable lifelike automatons marching toward the apocalypse – after all, one of his first jobs was directing episodes of "Sex and the City."

But this movie is more like the too-much, too-loud spectacle he brought to the "Thor" sequel – explosions that turn into firestorms, widescreen blurs that suggest that somewhere there may be a fight going on.
Or, maybe, a movie.

Which review is the quote taken from?

Also, didn't know it was from the guy who did Thor 2. I disliked Thor 2.

It was ok to me. But I prefer 1. Kenneth Branagh is an awesome director.

That's entirely Richard Attenborough. In the book Hammond's a complete asshat who blames everyone around him for his mistakes and the park going out of control and is in complete denial about how badly everything is going and is completely emotionally detached from everything other than money.

Crichton describes him as the dark side of Wait Disney.

Similarly, in the book Nedry engages in corporate espionage because after the security system is found lacking due to no one ever explaining the constantly changing requirements to him Hammond blackmails him into working on fixing it without pay for several months before the story begins.

Yeah, I read the book, but the scope of the discussion has kind of been limited to the movies so far. In the movies Hammond just had a blind spot to the possibility that someone wouldn't have quite as intense a nerdgasm as his about the possibility of a dinosaur theme park.

That is understandable.

Well, he just wants the kids to see dinosaurs.

Played a WHOLE lot of WoW, but stopped with WotLK (it became quite unhealthy).

Next most played used to be ToR, but I stopped after half a year because the same things that made me stop WoW started turning up again.

I paid a whole whole lot of client fees for other MMOs, but rarely stuck with them for more than 2-3 months. Eve, GW2 and City of Villains come out as the most relevant.

Right now, I am very casually playing Star Trek online. Extremely casually.

I played PFO for all of 3 days. That was $100 well spent ;) The game did not work for me on so many levels, despite the hefty buy-in I just had better things to do.

For anyone looking for a decent MMO, I would recommend STO or TOR. Both have good storytelling and can be played for free or on a very limited budget without losing too much. TOR is milking the skinner box more competently, and for me that is a problem, though.

Sto gets boring after a while

Not sure PFO is the MMO you want to cut your teeth on. It reminded me a little of the original Everquest when it first came out in that they took everything I despised about EQ and made a game just out of those elements.

I've played lots of MMOs, I just love games with developed crafting systems.

Meh I worked in a cinema in a university town "adults" are the worst. Cleaning up vomit was the bane of my existence. Blood spattered bathroom was the worst thing I had to clean after two guys had a fight.

I had a mother come and complain to me because she took her under 15 daughter into a M rated movie.... She screamed at me and I was just an usher, my manager walked over told her to calm down, she went ballistic and was going to call the police. The manger said fine go ahead.... Then he grabbed the ratings pamphlet highlighted text and read it to her.

"Children under 15 may legally access this material because it is an advisory category. However, M classified films may include classifiable elements such as violence and nudity of moderate impact that are not recommended for children under 15 years.

Parents and guardians may need to find out more about the fiilm specific content, before deciding whether the material is suitable for their child."

He then asked her name and said you're banned for a year because you are rude and a s!~@ parent.

The nearest other cinema was two hours away in the next town.

Your manager is awesome

i think that this concerns not only to pc players, even if consoleers arent having issues, this is a fact that how they dare to treat their customers at any layer they want.

I whish all consoleets take their batman game and ask for they money back. this would set a base for all those companies money grabbers and coin pinchers.

I can´t believe that no one at rocksteady says: dude, this could be done for pc. this is what happen when they dont make beta test. playtest. and such.

Its a shame that a company with AAA games, have this kind of issues, even the Assassins Creed Unity wasn´t so broken at release, and they solve it given their dlcs for free... it was enough? I dont think so, but was something. this guys only stops sales and tells you that you can have your money back through steam rules: not ever player the game for more than 2 hours...

I know there in usa, ppl can sue anything for things like this. I wish you all to do the propper thing and broke that company, not because they are evil, but, because they try and care not what the customer deserves.

its like if you were at a famous and expensive restaurant, then you wait for hours to your dinner, then, they give you the food rotten, and tell you: "hey wait, we cant sell you this, so, you need to wait more time"
did you stay there waiting?
What would you do if you were the guy at the next table?

and then, you noticed, that they gave you that rotten food because they think that you will never noticed.

Um what.

Seriously. What.

First of all, WB did the decent thing and pulled the game till they fix the problem. Second, whoever preordered it has got only themselves to blame.

There is absolutely no need for this kind of whining. If the game works as advertized on consoles, why should console players return it and stop bying it? Out of solidarity?

Boo hoo. The game came out with a crippling bug that probably wasn't detected before release (it happens), now let's cry around while they fix it and release it again in a few days.

Seriously. I thought adults behaved like adults.

People make mistakes. It's ok to point their mistakes to them. It's not ok to treat it like it's the end of the world. Don't like it? Don't buy the game. Stop telling others what to do.

To me it seems that avoiding loss of life should be top priority. This is an obvious statement, right? So again, under no circumstances send your people on foot to hunt an apex predator in the jungle.
Just as a point of order, H. sapiens is THE apex predator. Sure, there are a handful of animals that will make a snack of us given the chance, but we are at the top of every food chain in the world.
Kinda like saying you're the fastest man alive when your competition got hit in the head with a meteorite.
Speed has nothing to do with it. We're persistence hunters. Which is terrifying I'd you think about it from the deer's perspective.

Yup, humans are freaking scary. Imagine, you're doing your thing and suddenly, there he is, looking at you. And you run away. For a while. And then you relax, and start doing your thing. And THERE HE IS AGAIN. And again. And then, when you collapse out of exhaustion, HE IS THERE AGAIN. And you're food.

I've never had a problem with them, so I don't know what the complaint is.

Is the occasional whispered comment in a high pitched tone really that bothersome to you?

A family of 5 was seated in front of me. Two girls and a boy. The youngest girl actually had to shush the older one and the boy, they just wouldn't stop talking. And they were loud. And parents just made those "I'm a bad parent, but what can I do" faces.

And yes. It is bothersome to me. I came to watch a movie not to listen to shrill whining.

If you wanna go see a movie, go early in the day. Or hire a sitter. If you can't leave your kids behind, don't go see a damn movie.

Unfortunately our movie theaters don't have any kind of policy. If you complain they look at you like you're insane.

We need professional shushers.

Soo, seen the movie. Was an enjoyable time overall.

Aside from some quibbles like most of the people in the park firmly grabbing the idiot ball and holding on for dear life, it made sense.
Those dinosaurs cost a lot of money. And to most shareholders loss of 30 million dollars hurts much more than the loss of a few replacrable workers.

And the dino fight in the end. Oh man I was on the edge of my seat.

Also loved all the little nods to the old franchise.

I suppose its a matter of perspective. I tended to checkout every structure in the Wasteland in previous games no matter how tedious it was. Pointless possibly, but not empty.

The current guesstimate is Fallout 4's map will be about 30 miles square (roughly double the size of Skyrim's map).

Source for prediction.

I think that might be a highball estimate, but I would imagine 20 square miles isn't much of a stretch given Skyrim's size, and 30 is definitely possible.

I just hope most of it won't be empty and pointless.

Our table does not track gold weight in detail but we are cognoscente of it's encumbrance. We trade in gold for gems should the coin become burdensome.

Buying and selling the gems at value is the tricky part and that requires various skill checks such as appraisal.

Rules wise, you're wrong. Art objects, gems and precious metals are sold at 100% price.

I'm mostly with Lord Snow here. I'd rank it at maybe a 6/10, if I'm being generous. Some cool scenes, but the set up for them is trash. The 'villain' characters are trash. The main plot is pretty bad, the side romance is bad, the kids are boring and get in the way, etc.

Things don't make logical sense. Cars that sit in the jungle for 20 years run after changing a battery? The villain doesn't know what's going on?

Plus, you know, the big obvious set up for a sequel or six built into the plot.

Not a fan. Would not recommend. The few interesting scenes (mostly with raptors) are just as easily viewed on Youtube in a couple months, or via Redbox for a 1/10th of the price (or less).

6/10?

Just heard that F4 on consoles would be limited to 30fps and 1080p. And no limit on PC. Good news for PC. Would have hoped for at least 60fps for consoles. Full HD is pretty good.

You'd go half-sword so your thrusts have more oomph (which gives you a better chance of punching through the armor) and accuracy (to aim for the chinks in the armor) with the main goal of wrestling your opponent to the ground and finish him off there.

Actually, swords weren't made to punch through plate armor. Half-swording wasn't used to add thrust (it actually reduced it), it was used to help a man aim a 4 foot sword into a place where the opponent WASN'T armored. Like armpits and some parts of legs.

I GM much much more than I play. Mostly because, as people tell me, I'm a good GM, and they want to play at my table. And because, like Tri Omega Zero said...it's hard to let go of all that power.

Sometimes playing and not knowing anything seems so...constraining. But it can also be fun to let go of almost all responsibility and just enjoy oneself.

Sovereign Court

I'll have to borrow a PS4 for this.

Sovereign Court

Also, the first foot or so of a greatsword was usually blunt.

One handed swordfighting cannot prepare you for two handed.

Murderstrike is pretty easy to learn, half swording almost natural if you need to aim.

Aside from the fact that a samurai is slaughtering knights (yeah right), a trailer is pretty damn good.

Also a gameplay demo

Now I know I'm gonna be playing this baby A LOT. Also, wonderfully, made for ALL platforms, thank you Ubisoft. Also thank you for not just publishing that crappy Assassin's Creed drivel.

I wonder if multiplayer is gonna be cross-platform or that Consoles can play with each other and PC stands alone (it's understandable, but still I'd like for it to be cross-platform)

I take pack rat and strong back traits :D

I hope that they aren't. I hope they pick a fully paragon ending where everything is resolved in the best possible way.
