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!
Gen-Con badges are already up for sale? I really need to get a straight answer from my brother if he's joining me this year or not. Are badge prices around the same as last year? I can't remember my account info to log into the site and check it out.
Here's a question for the big comic book historians on the forum. Obviously the big thing in comics for a long time was Marvel Vs. DC. I know now it's not *that* huge of a deal for them to cross over, but back in the day I imagine when and if they did comics of this nature, it was exciting and hopefully awesome.
So, what are some awesome Marvel Vs. DC moments.
the bit where it ended because it was awful and JLA/Avengers made up for it.
Marvel vs DC led to Amalgam Comics, which were the best.
Bucky Cap might be great, but Steve Rogers is the greatest comic book hero ever. A few examples:
When some terrorists demand that the missing and presumed dead Captain America be released to him, he doesn't show, and some punk FBI agent starts talking crap about Cap. Hercules puts him in his place:
Cap has just watched Michael Korvac, who was a God-like Sentry character, beat the shit out of the rest of Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, killing many of the most powerful supers in the universe:
Baron Zemo creates the strongest Masters of Evil team ever and manages to capture the Avengers mansion and Cap by surprise, and is determined to break Cap's spirit before killing him:
Cap eventually gets free, and leads the remaining Avengers in retaking the mansion, and beats down most of the Wrecking Crew by himself. But the real highlight of this arc was the final fight between Cap and Zemo:
The epilogue to this storyline is still one of the best character moments in a superhero comic:
And one last cool Cap moment, from the end of Busiek's Avenger's run. Kang has conquered the Earth while Cap and the Avengers were on a mission in space. When they come back, they are able to destroy Kang's orbiting weapons and force him down to Earth:
Guys, Flashpoint: Fire Rescue is good. Like... crazy good. Might even be a better co-op than Pandemic, but I've only played it twice (both this evening). I can't recommend it enough - it washed the horrible Castle Panic taste out of my mind.
And major congrats @Tayrun ! Seeing all these battle reports makes me wish I had played Kessel.
