Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Has there been any discussion of the new Flash #1 yet? I was pretty underwhelmed but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for a couple of issues. (#2 is on today's shipping list.)
I found the first issue to be a pretty weak reintroduction of the character. Bart just seems incredibly bland now that he's "all grown up". Part of what made Impulse fun was the hyperactivity and lack of attention span. Even as Kid Flash he was a lot more interresting (lots of knowledge, not a lot of wisdom). His "ladies man" roommate is so cliched too... :roll:
Bart actually seems like he'd be a good bet to follow in Barry's footsteps as a police scientist. It's a much more interresting setting for the character than an automotive factory.
He just doesn't seem like he's going to be much fun as a character. It'd be cool to see a little more of the animated Wally's personality in Bart, actually enjoying his powers. At this point it's not even clear what's going on with his speed, but all he did in the first issue was mope and complain.
