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!

  • [MARVEL MCU] Guardians of the Galaxy? Probably just a Kree border squabble...

    SDCC was a pretty big bust this year. We didn't really get much info on any of their upcoming movies or heck, even shows. It was pretty disappointing.

    I'm sorry but excusing Other M is pretty awful of people. It was a bad Metroid game and it was awful narratively for what it did to a long-standing character.

    Disregarding others opinions is pretty awful of people too.

    Just sayin... :P

    Normally I'd agree.

    But Other M is, like Justin Bieber or lite beer, pretty objectively awful.

    Oh, I'm not disputing the story being terrible, because it is.

    But the game itself is fun and I enjoy it quite a bit. Also, after the first playthrough, you can skip the cutscenes.

    Have any LMDs ever found ou that they're LMDs, and had a breakdown over it?
    The idea of LMD Nick Fury deciding to kill the real Fury and take his place seems kinda obvious, but if they establish them in the MCU, it's one I'd want to see.
    Or Coulson's evil clone coming to take over the Bus...

    There actually have been evil Nick Fury LMDs in the comics and most of them knew they were LMDs. One of these evil one were most recently in the first arc of Secret Avengers.

  • The Amazing Spider-Thread

    Bought Amazing Spider-Man 2 on bluray and my family watched it tonight.

    First time my wife and kids saw it and they enjoyed it a lot.

    It was my second time seeing it, and my thoughts are probably the same:

    Is it a great movie...not really. Is it even a good movie...not really.

    However, Gwen is amazing throughout. This version of Spider-Man is the very best we've seen on film. He fights and moves the way I would expect. He jokes, he mocks, he changes when he's behind the mask. That is all awesome. Also Sally Field as Aunt May is pretty great also.

    On the other hand, the story is barely there, the villains were either one note or rushed, the motivations were all ok-ish, the obvious 'to be continued is obvious', the parents story is still dull and dumb, and the movie is filled with unnecessary scenes like the opening plane scene and the whole planes going to crash into each other scene.

    I personally enjoyed the movie because Stone and Garfield are fantastic in it. They have amazing chemistry and their scenes are fun to watch. Even though the villains are boring, the action scenes are not. They are fast and fun to watch.

    Personally I adore Raimi's movies. They haven't aged well and Toby is a pretty terrible Peter, but the villains were memorable, the overarching story of the Osbornes was superbly done, Doc Ock is still one of the best villains put to screen, Defoe is awesome, Franco was great, Bruce Campbell was awesome, and they actually used the term 'with great power comes great responsibility.' To me they were superior in almost every way.

    If only Garfield's Spider-Man was placed over Toby's it would be the perfect combination to me.

    Just my 2 cents.

    They are pretty awesome throwbacks to Fusion and Zero Mission.
