btw the movies box office take for its opening weekend was reported to be $10 million.  It cost over $90 million to make.  This thing is a colossal flop.  It will probably do decent on disc but its almost a guarantee that it will kill the Conan franchise for years to come.

if only they had waited for Arnie to come back.

Don't think Arnie could have saved the franchise either. He's pushing 60. Do you really want to see a 60-something actor playing 'Conan' in a movie? This new movie just didn't get lucky. I'll surely catch it on BluRay down the line.

Could have been awesome if done right. Aging Conan, still a badass.


This movie could have been awesome if done right.

plot synopsis:

Quote
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone's imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question - Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as "Superman," not only to shine as the world's last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

Well, that sounds well thought out, at least, and relevant to the times without throwing who Supes is into the crapper.

Or so generic it could cover about anything.

Day one for me!  I love Zelda.  I wish it were a month sooner but oh well.

Of course it does mean I will be playing it and Skyrim at the same time but that it the kind of pain I can live with.

I saw this last night and loved it.  It was very simple and not very violent.  It reminded me a lot of the first Iron Man where we get to know the character a lot more than and superhero.

Ok, I will give it a try again.  The headache was annoying so I hope it works.  I would hate to have this wonderful 3d device and not be able to use it to its full potential.

Bill Harris also seems to love the game

Quote
Bastion (360)
This was one of my most-anticipated games of the year, based on E3 previews and videos, and man, it didn't disappoint. The game world is beautiful and vibrantly colored, the animation is seamless, and the music is first-rate. Also first-rate is the gameplay, which is thoughtful without being unnecessarily complex--an ideal balance.

Of particular note are the story and the narration. The writing, by itself, is outstanding, but the voice acting, if possible, is even better, and they are a perfect complement to each other. The original hook for the game was that the narration would be dynamic enough to comment on whatever the player was doing at the time. That sounds like a difficult feature to pull off, but they did, and it works perfectly. It's an ingenious idea, and it adds a new dimension that makes the game world even more vivid.

This is a game that never breaks immersion. There are no rough patches that take you back to the real world for a moment or two, no questions to ask about why something wasn't finished or doesn't look right. It's a fully-contained escape from this world, and it's a wonderful experience. If you love the experience of playing games, of entering another world, then you must play Bastion.

In two words: utterly charming.

This is my first 3DS game and I have to have it in 2d because I got a massive headache when I tried 3D for an hour.   I also managed to miss a ton of stuff which I will have to go back for.

I had forgotten how jam packed old RPGs were. 

Where was the slider positioned?

All the way up.  Does that make a difference?

yeah, I snuck into one area and now need to go back because I missed something.  I had to look it up and apparently I need to talk to one person multiple times to get an item- I stopped doing that because everyone just kept on saying the same thing over and over  *Fist Shaking*

I didn't run into every tree apparently so I missed some Gold Skultulas.  The whole feel of the game is different.  You can tell they expected people to play it for a long time and multiple times as well.

from that article:

Quote
And since Nolan, Bale, and Warner Bros. are adamant that the Dark Knight series will end with this film, you have to wonder: Could this be the first superhero movie with a genuinely unhappy ending? Could Christopher Nolan's Batman die? Or at least be very badly injured?

the question is would the studio let him do something like that and just plan for a reboot a few years down the road?  Most of the Batman movies have been cash cows for them, so you know one way or another there will be more.

Well, in the comics Bane does break Batman's back. Though I certainly hope it doesn't end that way, it very well could.

But no one thought that was the end of the Batman comics so it is a bit of a different thing. 

2629  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [3DS] Zelda: Ocarina of Time on: July 13, 2011, 05:27:29 PM
I picked this up and have put a bit of time into it.  I have to say I still am no good with the 3D.  I am not sure I really see anything "3D" and I know I got a headache yesterday when I played with 3D on.  It looks pretty great in 2D so if I get another headache playing I will switch to that all the time. 


2630  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie]Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows on: July 13, 2011, 03:52:31 PM
I didn't like it.  I saw nothing about a mystery in there just a lot of action.  That is fine but where do we see Sherlock's intellect? deduction?  It felt a bit like "Sherlock Bourne"  to me.

2635  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / FS: DSXL Red Mario version on: July 05, 2011, 09:25:39 PM
I want to get a 3DS, the local store will give me $90 in trade in for the DSXL but I would rather sell it to someone here.  They will just jack the price up on someone.  I can do that! smile  So I will sell it for $100.  That should be a bit cheaper than you can buy it in the store used. 

It is in great condition, has all the stuff, etc. 

PM me if your interested.

Thanks,

When I say most overrated, it's because of the library of games (or lack thereof), not because of the technology.  Kinect still has the potential to be very, very cool in my book.  It's just that the games so far have failed to pique my interest in the slightest.  

I felt the same way until Child of Eden, now I want to get one.  I will also say that the Seasame Street game due out this fall looks pretty interesting. 

2637  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Green Lantern: The Movie on: June 24, 2011, 07:58:48 PM
Box office mojo

Green Lantern

Total Lifetime Grosses
Domestic:     $70,961,421       81.3%
+ Foreign:     $16,300,000       18.7%
= Worldwide:     $87,261,421

Production Budget: $200 million   

X-men: First Class

Domestic:     $126,214,928       43.4%
+ Foreign:     $164,592,842       56.6%
= Worldwide:     $290,807,770    

Production Budget: $160 million

Thor

Domestic:     $176,712,064       40.5%
+ Foreign:     $259,561,239       59.5%
= Worldwide:     $436,273,303    

Production Budget: $150 million



So out of the three releases so far it has done by far the worst.  Now it is true the others have been out a bit longer so those numbers will change but if you look at opening weekend receipts as well the picture is bad for Green Lantern.  It just isn't doing that well.  It might break even but it almost certainly won't be the money maker the others are.

2638  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Green Lantern: The Movie on: June 24, 2011, 04:47:36 PM
I saw this last night and have to climb on the bandwagon with everyone else.  It was just a "b" movie at best.  I am amazed it cost so much to make.  It is also doing fairly poorly at the box office so I wonder if there will be a sequel.
