7641  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Marvel Digital Comics on: May 06, 2009, 04:15:56 PM
I decided to sign up for a year of Marvel Digital Comics last night. I have read very few comics in my lifetime and this seemed like a nice low-cost way to get a ton of "fun" reading material.

I read Uncanny X-Men #1 last night, which was a hoot. It really lets you see the way people were thinking in the 60's. It also appears that the original version of Magneto was ridiculously powerful.

My question was really about read order. I know in 90's when college buddies of mine were reading comics, it was extremely popular to spread stories across 3 or more titles. When did they start doing this, and is there any good source for looking up when you should be reading other titles for crossovers? Did they tell you in the comics themselves or did you just have to be "in the know"?

I tend to be "it depends" on tattoos on women. Words written across one's ribcage don't really do a whole lot for me, but other things can be intriguing. The one "dumb young girl" thing she did was to get her (now ex) fiancee's name written next to her vajayjay. I'm sure her next partner is going to love that.

As far as her job goes, Hollywood seems to be perfectly happy to deal with tattoos with makeup and editing. Neither she nor Angelina Jolie are hurting for work.

I love old Dom. Some of the inter-action between him and Burt Reynolds on gag-reels and such were hilarious.

I have to admit one thing though. I thought he was gay all this time. What stuff has his kids done?

His kids are all over the place - I think Peter (who you might remember from 21 Jump Street) does mostly producing or directing now, and he is heavily involved in Stargate. I see the other kids acting all the time - one of them had an extended run on Gilmore Girls and another is on one of the Disney shows.
7644  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Joss Whedons Dollhouse starts Friday on: May 06, 2009, 01:33:36 PM
Finally caught up last night. I think I read the same thing as some other people, that Alan Tudyk was supposed to play Alpha, but knowing Wash, it didn't seem to fit. I got a little suspicious when he changed clothes and was in such good shape, but I just chalked it up to the fact that actors just generally stay in shape. So, in the end, I was still pretty surprised.

So, no one has mentioned - when they brought back the old head of security in Victor's body, he called out for "Whiskey". They made some crack about him wanting a drink, but my immediate thought was that there was a doll in the room, codename "Whiskey" (which fits the military alphabet system they use for the dolls). My first thought was that it was the doctor, but later in the episode, she mentions that she was there when Alpha was first created.

EDIT: although, I guess if she's a doll, they could make her remember whatever they want her to remember.

Re: last point - Stargate?

Stargate Atlantis, etc. would be spinoffs from the original Stargate series. In this case, a second Parenthood tv series, based on the movie, is being made with no connection at all to the first series (which was nearly 20 years ago). This would be sort of along the lines of having a new MASH series that assumed the series with Alan Alda never happened. I bet this has happened, but I can't think of an example off the top of my head.

Most networks don't have their announcements for 2 weeks, but NBC released some of their info today.

Some interesting things:

-Big Bang Theory is renewed, but HIMYM is still up in the air
-SVU is renewed, but original L&O is up in the air
-Heroes was renewed, which is surprising since I haven't heard anything good about it in ages
-Fringe was renewed - guess it has a following
-NBC has a new show called "Parenthood" coming in the fall, which is the 2nd series based on the original movie. Has that every happened before?

Did you use profanity with the sensitive one? If so then maybe you do owe an apology. Also, while I understand the backgrond about the housekeeping it really has nothing to do with the problem, other than maybe demostrate a sense of frustration at what transpired.

I use profanity all the time, and no less frequently around her.  Did I swear at her?  No.  More the equivalent of saying "DAMNIT!" after stubbing your toe instead of yelling "DAMN YOU!" at your wife for laughing after you stub your toe.

Regardless, I'll probably see her this weekend and discuss the situation.  A big deal about nothing.  My biggest problem was with my wife's demands and orders.

If I was at someone's house and my dog had an accident, I would be embarrassed and immediately help clean it up. There seems to be something very off about the way this woman reacted. Her reaction was more consistent of someone who thought Pete already had it out for them, rather than "one of the few people that like him."

That said, if it's important to the wife, I would just go ahead and call the woman - it should be pretty painless. More importantly, remember that marriage is about give and take. Do this now and you have something to hold over your wife's head later.

On the other hand, if the dog had crapped in my Home Depot no way I'm apologizing.

The one saving grace is that if you die 5 times or so, the game will offer to go into easy mode for you. I am not ashamed to say that I took it up on that offer (definitely in GoW2, I can't remember in GoW1, but probably). You don't even lose an achievement or anything smile

Is this a game that has replay value? I could see myself replaying Deus Ex and trying different styles of play, for example, but I resold Beyond Good & Evil right after I finished it.


Not in the sense that you would replay Deus Ex, but there's a ton of mayhem in the game and in that sense it can be fun to just jump in and beat the crap out of some monsters and try different combos. You do also power up your weapons and magic during the game, so you can take somewhat different approaches during subsequent playthroughs.

So far reviews look to be rather positive.  Granted, films rarely stick around the 100% mark, especially when early reviews are so overwhelmingly positive, but word on the street is that Wolverine is a more mature superhero film intended for a sophisticated audience.  I'm cautiously optimistic and we have plans to catch a matinee on Saturday with a group of friends. 

Hmmm.  Check again ....

Christ, that didn't last long.   disgust

At least reviews are more in line with what I expected, which is still disappointing as the film's quality is far from what I had hoped.   

I've actually heard people who work in Hollywood that the movie is a bit of a clusterfuck.  To put it mildly.

Well, I was watching a bit on the Wolverine game where they mentioned that this was originally supposed to come out last summer. That made me wonder why, although I never looked into it.

It doesn't matter if the specific idea I had doesn't work. There are plenty of different things that could be tried, and TPB didn't try any of them. Not only did they not try them, they resisted any attempt by content owners to protect their material and made it even easier for people to get pirated material by organizing the links to said material and hosting trackers.

All you are arguing is that shutting down TPB won't stop piracy. I don't really care. Nowhere in this thread have I ever claimed to have an answer to stopping piracy. All I have ever said is that they broke a law and should be punished for it.

I really didn't want to get back into this argument, but people who are defending the Pirate Bay keep going down the same road - that you could find something legal on the Pirate Bay site.

I looked at all of these searches. The largest seeded torrent under the "Wow Patches" search is a set of illegal console ROMs. Most of the legal stuff has little to no seeds.
Does it matter the number of legal vs. illegal stuff? The Pirate Bay cannot tell what is legal or illegal. It just tells you what people have put out there for download on their computers.

Sure they can, they just have to look at the file names and descriptions. If they wanted to, they could restrict against finding files with the pattern "sXXeXX" in the title or the words "crack" or "no-CD" and they'd immediately wipe out a huge portion of illegal tv shows and software from their search results.

Why does it matter how they organize their site? I wanted to download last night's Chuck episode, so I searched for "chuck s02e22". The only difference between searching for it on Pirate Bay and Google is that on google it helps to type "filetype:torrent." Are those 2 words really the difference between good and bad to you?

Finding TV shows on the Pirate Bay does not require a search. You simply click the "tv shows" link on the front page and it lays everything out for you by show and season. It presents things to you that you might not have even thought of searching for, which is significantly more than Google does. And again, if someone asks Google to  remove access to a link, they do it. TPB does not. And TPB hosts trackers, and Google does not.

I dont believe for a second that pirates bay was used 'extensively' for legal means, as its just not true.   So no new arguments need to be brought.

Then stop being a knucklehead and go there to search for yourself. The site is up. You don't have to speculate or believe anything. The proof is available to anyone who is actually interested in serious discussion and isn't just participating in the thread in order to be trollish.

But wait! I'll do it for you, since you're obviously going to search for something like "The Dark Knight DVD rip" and complain that you're not seeing any legal results.

WoW patches: http://thepiratebay.org/search/wow%20patch/0/99/0
Game music remixes: http://thepiratebay.org/search/ocremix/0/99/0
Public domain books: http://thepiratebay.org/search/public%20domain%20books/0/99/0
Abandonware: http://thepiratebay.org/search/abandonware/0/99/0 (yes, I know Abandonware isn't strictly legal, but with HotU down, torrents are a very attractive alternative to something that would otherwise be unavailable to anyone, paying customer or not)
Patches in general: http://thepiratebay.org/search/patch/0/99/0
Linux: http://thepiratebay.org/browse/303

These were all generic searches, and with the exception of WoW I didn't search for a particular product. Yet all those search results are overflowing with legal torrents. So much for the "Pirate Bay isn't used for legal stuff" argument, eh?

Yes, you'll find the occasional illegal result among the searches above, just like on Google. If you absolutely have to go for a counterargument, please try to be more clever than using that one.

I really didn't want to get back into this argument, but people who are defending the Pirate Bay keep going down the same road - that you could find something legal on the Pirate Bay site.

I looked at all of these searches. The largest seeded torrent under the "Wow Patches" search is a set of illegal console ROMs. Most of the legal stuff has little to no seeds. The largest seeds for the "patches in general" search are cracks of Windows XP SP3 and Alcohol 150%. The largest seeds under "public domain books" is a set of hacking and cracking tools. There are basically 0 seeds under the "game music remixes" search.

However, this is immaterial. It doesn't matter what one theoretically could find on The Pirate Bay. What is important is how they organize their site, what they provide easy access to and (based on the case) what trackers they host.

I rarely agree with what brettmcd writes, but he is not trolling here. This is not an argument over the legality of torrents. It is not an argument over what would or would not happen if you suddenly made pirating or drugs or prostitution legal. It is an argument about what The Pirate Bay site is and what they did under current laws. They went out of their way to help people find pirated material, hosted trackers for pirated material, and most importantly resisted any effort from content owners to protect material that appeared in searches on their site.

"Danger is my middle name" yeah, yeah, yeah.
