    Also, if the fighting in the game (a MMO, for heaven's sake!) is anything like the fighting in the trailers I will be amazed.

    I feel like the point of a trailer is to distract people from contemplating the probable true nature of the gameplay.

    It's like this with bloody all MMOs, it's all looking awesome and quick and wham bwam zoom fwoosh.

    ...And then you run into a boss mob and the boss mob has 500,000hp and you do 100 damage per second. You end up beating on a boss's toes for half an hour.

    First MMO to deliver boss fights only half as interesting as Sonic the motherfucking Hedgehog is getting my love. It's not interesting to have to through the same 5 motions all the time, once you manage to understand what's happening and time your attack properly you should fucking win and get to the next phase or the next boss or whatever.

    First MMO to deliver God of War or Shadow o/t Colossus boss fights is going to consume my soul.

    Boss fights in Lunia are still fun. They don't take more than a minute or two either.

    Then they've improved things since I played, because I remember bosses having quite a lot of hp. Man maybe I should re-download it some time, Valkyrie sky is pretty boring anyway.

    I think one of the problems the Prince of Persia movie had was Dastan wasn't appropriately funny enough. They had an amusing "Oh, that wacky prince, wrestling with his men" moment, but he was largely too serious. They tried to blend Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp and they didn't get the mixture right.

    MMOFPS are all failures, no one is going to try again. Just ask Arghy about Darkfall some time.

    The thirds Pirates movie is fucking weird. Like, they could have cut the entire Calypso sub-plot and it wouldn't have made a god damn difference. And then the end? When they're blasting the ship apart and it's all in slow motion and shit? What was the deal with that?

    I love almost all of his material, everything from the set pieces like Guilty Conscience and Stan through the heavy and morose When I'm Gone and clear into his new album (some of which is really sobering, you can really see how he's growing and changing as a person now that he's actually gotten everything he set out to get)

    I've been trying to get more of my friends turned onto him, he's a fantastic artist that gets overlooked for any number of reasons

    There are a few bosses that are still a pain, specifically in Bonus. And the more advanced stages will be difficult if you have a really bad team. But yes, apparently the game has been dumbed down a whole lot since.

    Phew, dodged a bullet there. :)

    The problem the Pirate series had, however, is getting a little too wrapped up in the supernatural. In the first movie, things seem pretty reasonable, the occasional bout of expert gymnastics aside, and there are only a few supernatural elements. By the third movie you have giant monsters, journeying to the afterlife, huge floating cities made of ships and a battle in an epic whirpool. They kept upping the stakes and kinda lost the grounding in reality.

    Have you heard the re-release of Relapse; Refill? He put out like 7 more tracks on Relapse because he felt bad about delaying Recovery a year. Forever is a fucking great song.

    I think the two Pirates sequels suffered from the same problem as the Matrix sequels. The original movies were perfectly good standalone surprise hits that did the job and then should have been allowed to leave the stage gracefully. But no.

    The problem with past MMOFPS's like planetside is that they aren't -real- fps's.

    Real FPS's do not require rpg accuracy/damage checks.

    Fuck that. If I aim at their head damage should be calculated by location and gun power

    ONLY THAT. No RPG stats.

    I'm confused as to why a friend of mine with no political leanings other than the basic left-wing bohemian skillset, and no apparently African ethnic origin of any sort, would have the Côte d'Ivoire flag as her FB profile picture.

    Like confused to the point where I don't know if it would be appropriate to ask.

    I assume it's something to do with the World Cup, but her last few statuses have only been swooning about how hot Ronaldo is... so like... WTF?

    At World's End is the most artsy of the 3 films. It just suffered from "being weird" itis.


    I've re-watched it several times and it's really fairly brilliant.

    Dead Man's Chest is a fairly good swashbuckler.

    The original is classic.

    But there's literally forty-five fucking seconds between Gandalf saying, "Keep it secret; keep it safe," and reappearing on screen covered in sweat and dirt and saying, "Is it secret? Is it safe?!"

    Yes, that was terrible.
