How can you not solve only one side? If the rest of the sides are all solved (i.e., one color), than shouldn't the last side also be one color?

Plus, it is differentiating itself with a female protagonist. I'm sure ABC/Marvel would love to pull in more of the ladies. Frankly, I think the show could be fun, as it hasn't been explored that much within the movies.
43  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: (TV-ABC) Marvel's Agent Carter on: May 12, 2014, 09:53:37 PM
Yeah, I don't really see why there is any confusion on what the show is going to be about. Seems pretty straightforward to me.

Game is sent!

Sounds good! I am Suitably Ironic Moniker on Steam. Send me a friend invite, and I'll send you the game.

I have to say, I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, definitely more than I liked the first one. It certainly could have been shorter (I would have been fine without the parental story line), and I wonder if Sally Field gave Jamie Foxx pointers on his character ("You like me, you really like me!), but I found the main story to be affecting. I thought that Harry's transformation into the Green Goblin was much more satisfying than in Spidey 1. Garfield and Stone had real chemistry, which is odd, as most real life couples seem to fizzle on-screen.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I thought the ending was really well done. Gwen's speech was just a little too on point for what Peter was going through, but I really felt that loss.

I also thought that this film actually handled the three villains well, better than DKR or Spidey 3. Paul Giamatti had no business being in the film (aside from wanting that phat comic book movie dough), but I enjoyed the Rhino being comic relief/ bit player in introducing the Sinister Six. All in all, I'd put it just behind Spidey 2, and even that is fading, as I find myself unable to really enjoy those films any more (I hate Tobey's stupid cryface).

I have one steam copy of this game to give away. First come, first served, unless you are a Canadian. Gone!

What's next, Ghost Recon: Modern Warfighter?

Yeah, I used to get a little annoyed at CeeKay's apparent need to get the last word in some threads, but I really miss reading his posts now. I suppose the only way he could cut down his posting was to go cold turkey.

I got Hitman Go, and it is fun. It is certainly different than the main series, but I think it fits.
52  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Colbert to replace Letterman on: April 12, 2014, 10:02:48 PM
He will riff on politics, but not as that character, I bet.

The way they dyed his hair and eyebrows, he looked oddly washed out.
54  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Colbert to replace Letterman on: April 11, 2014, 03:24:35 AM
Here's a piece at EW talking about how he is most likely going to shed his Bill O'Reilly-esque character. It would make no sense to carry him over; the Colbert Report would probsbly end up confusing a lot of the slack-jawed yokels out there, plus, Colbert is really mult-faceted, so it should be awesome.

I'm one of those who loved the series from beginning to end. If Glen A. Larson is going to be active in developing this one, I bet we'll see a return to the cheesier aspects of the original show.

Have you played Galaxy of Fire 2? If so, how does it compare to that one in terms of number of star systems, game mechanics, ship customization and depth of trading?

This is coming out next week 3-12-14, the interface looks pretty sweet and it's been a while since I've played a good old fashioned thermonuclear war game  icon_wink :

Weird--I'm looking up some info on game strategy for this and it seems like there's only one winning move.


63  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: March 04, 2014, 09:02:19 PM
Well, I have Shadow Sun and I played the first Avadon (along with the Avernum and Geneforge series), and they are pretty different. SS is similar in some ways to the Ravensword games, as it is 3D, though it is party based in SS. The story is decent and I am enjoying the combat, but it is certainly not as deep or as non-linear as Avadon.

I saw Springsteen play Wrigley in September 2012, and it was completely awesome. The only blemish was that the Big Man was gone, but his nephew picked up the slack admirably.

It also has, for my money, the best light saber duel with Luke going medieval on Vader's, hand.

For the most part, the first is the best and Meta Critics is way harsher than IMDB though the trends are quite similar.

I could see docking Godfather II a point for being a sequel, but it was frakking phenomenal, and I'd put the ending of that film, with Fredo getting whacked, up against the baptism montage in the first one for greatness.

Wait, are you saying that Robocop was successful or unsuccessful? If it's the latter, I don't want to see a movie with you slywink.

The last couple have been so-so. It may be time to put the series out to pasture.

Blizzard games post-Warcraft II. I never was big on Diablo, but I really enjoyed the first two Warcrafts. I guess I used up all of RTS love on those, because I couldn't get into Warcraft III or the Starcrafts.

FWIW, I haven't experienced any bugs, but that is no guarantee, of course.

If you look at the number of female murderers vs. male murderers, it's pretty clear that the desire to kill innocent people isn't an equal opportunity activity.   I believe the number becomes even more skewed if you start looking at mass murderers.

Demographical accuracy is hardly a compelling reason to not feature women in these roles within video games.
