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!

    This is how King Arthur was for me. I was in a group of people that all really wanted to see it, but there was something else out at the time that I wanted to see and I was sitting there being the elitist telling them that it was going to be an unwatchable piece of shit, so they payed for my ticket. I walked out about 20 minutes in and got "my" money back and refused to give it back to them. I said they weren't responsible enough to have it.
    King Arthur was terrible but it could have been saved. If Godzilla had emerged from beneath the ice and been the secret Scottish weapon, that would have made it go through the eye of awful into great. And it wouldn't have been much of a stretch given the silly nonsense.

    I forget which straw it was that got me to walk out, but they told me about the rest of the movie afterwards and I couldn't stop laughing. I mean, I've been there but I don't recall, does Scotland have giant ice canyons?

    Actually, what I would have done is that space aliens would have come to Earth, as the Second Roman Legion. They would have attacked England with their laser beams and legionnaires with lightsabers shaped like dildos and or katanas. Then Ninjas from Japan would have invaded with anime mechas and Arthur would have gone Super Saiyan 3 and kicked Buus ass then exploded Keira Knightly from the vagina outwards.

    Now that would be a fucken movie. And historically accurate.

    And they invented Greek fire and trebuchets in a slightly off the cuff manner after having retreated through said ice canyons beneath which the dragon king slumbers.

    It's easier to tell when I'm not being serious because you can see my mannerisms. I'm not sure what differences there are beyond that. I've hung out with a couple P-A people in person, but they remain anonymous for their protection. Reviews have all been positive, though. I still tend to turn damned near everything into a joke, though. It's more fun than doing something other than that.

    It's always sad when not even Keira Knightley being really pretty can save a film.

    I'd also up the number of sex scenes. Preferably to most of the movies length to distract people (at last half the audience) from how terrible it is.

    I'm not sure how I'd be around PA forumers, honestly. I speak somewhat differently with you guys (outside of the unavoidable internet changes) than I would if we were face to face. I omit/fabricate details of my life less, for example, and express my more controversial views more often. Truth be told, some of you probably know more about me than most of the people I interact with on a daily basis.

    That's probably a bad thing, now that I consider it. Still, [chat] has helped me learn better ways of making friends, even in real life, so I suppose I shouldn't feel bad.

    I decide whether a person is a threat before I'll go full bore with my views, usually. Other times I just wait for them to say something exceedingly stupid.

    Never before have I seen a bigger abortion than that movie.

    I tend to regard everyone as a 'threat'. I'm rather sensitive to confrontation. I don't always show it, and I'll usually give as good as I get, but it took me a while to get over the 'burst into tears' reaction. As it is I still flinch internally.

    I think I was just hit too often as a child to really enjoy confrontation. I enjoy challenges, and passionate debates, but not so much anything beyond that.

    That, and you liking confrontation doesn't particularly surprise me.

    I enjoy confrontations because I look at them as opportunities to prove myself. With that in mind I project a strictly non-confrontational persona. Because I like surprising people.

    See, that would be someone getting injured which isn't really so much fun. Although if someone punches me over an argument I see that as proof that I've won.

    Oh, I haven't had a confrontation result in violence for.. eh... 6 years now? Maybe 7. But that instinct is still there.

    Debate is fine, though, as long as the person I'm debating can maintain an objective opinion and refrain from insults.

    ---

    Due - There's a difference between confrontation and debate. Though I tend to project a 'don't mess with me attitude' as well, although for different reasons. 1, the way I walk throws people off because of years of martial arts training (never mind the fact that I'd never hit someone unless they attacked me first). 2, I'm blessed with an almost unnatural amount of the gift of gab, so when I do talk, I sound knowledgeable to the average person, so that tends to intimidate people (annoyingly so). 3, I'm weird, so that again tends to keep people at arm's length.

    I heard that Cheney actually shoots and cannibalises the corpses of friends on hunting trips, then blames the result on "hunting accidents".
