We can continue having films full of sound and fury, signifying nothing (aka Wolverine and Elektra), or we can we have character driven superhero films that make us care about the story and its inhabitants (Spiderman 1 and 2, The Dark Knight).  I'll opt for the latter.

Is neither an option?


no

Really?  Guess it hadn't crossed my mind. 

Responded pretty quickly to a rhetorical post though....

What's your point?

I saw that earlier and it piqued my interest.  I hope they play it either in a theater or on the Sundance or IFC channels.

I don't know why you didn't use one of my tried and true methods for avoiding termination from my book "Avoiding Job Loss The Hepcat Way".  Hell, in chapter 2 I relate an anecdote that would have worked perfectly for you!

I set up a meeting with my boss earlier that fateful day.  During the course of our discussion I casually mentioned that I knew I was about to be fired for filling the water cooler with Mountain Dew and hanging a sign over it that said "Fresh Pee!".  When he said his hands were tied, I simply replied, "Are you SURE about that?".  When he explained again that he had no choice because Lester in accounting was about to file charges after everyone started harrassing him for finishing 6 cups before finding out it was soda, I tore open my shirt and threw open my office door, stumbling out into the hallway while screaming, "RAPE!".

...in hindsight, I probably should have done this face to face instead of via a conference call.

But you get my drift. 

(seriously though, let me know if there's anything I can do to cheer you up)

I was curious about that, too.  I'm thinking that there's basically one code that works for all purchases of the game, but we would need Island Dog to confirm.  If it is and they want more sales, I would think they would allow us to just post the code in this thread.  But I don't want to do so without confirmation.

Personally, I think Loki is going to be the real draw in this film.  His character always interested me more in the comic books.

I'm not sure why folks are lamenting Branagh's involvement as some type of career wreck.  Favreau directed indie films before really finding fame with Elf and Iron Man.  Oftentimes the material can transcend its own limitations at the hands of a good director.



plus his version of Hamlet was awesome.  It replaced the Mel Gibson version of it as my favorite film adaptation of the play.

also, is blacksmith really worth a skill slot?  i mistakenly took it early on thinking I should have at least one crafting skill, but I haven't seen any benefit from it.  i wish i could respec this guy at this point.   icon_neutral

Is it possible I've run into a bug already?  I just started (lvl 2 Seraphim), and I got the High Elf sidequest to go kill 5 highwaymen.  My questlog says I've killed enough, but the guy at the gate to the brigand camp keeps telling me where I should be able to find them.

if i remember correctly, the guy who rewards you for that quest is somewhere else.  check the map and move your cursor over the circles until you find the quest with the same name to figure out where he is.

Here's the latest on the codes:

Greetings Demigod user!

As you know, Demigod is a real-time action strategy game that incorporates tactical combat with role playing elements. When played on-line, it is best played with groups of people as opposed to 1 on 1 as seen in many other strategy games.

Since Demigod's launch late last month, we have been working with developer Gas Powered Games to enhance the game. We have a lot of exciting updates in the works. One of the things we have been particularly concentrating on is improving the game's multiplayer connectivity.

We have been gradually improving the Demigod network connectivity for those who enjoy playing on-line with other people. On Thursday, May 21st, we released an update that introduced our own network of servers to host the connection for those users who have had a hard time getting connected to other players online.

As a token of our appreciation to our customers who have waited patiently while we've addressed the on-line multiplayer difficulties, we present you with this 50% off coupon on purchasing a second copy of the digital version of Demigod for your friends or family. This will only be valid until early next week so this would be a good time to use it.

In addition, next week we will be sending out a second coupon that will give users 20% off of any game or application on Impulse. To help encourage an active Demigod community, we will be occasionally be sending out additional coupons to active players of Demigod (people who play more than a couple of hours a week).

We thank you for your business and hope you are able to enjoy these updates to Demigod.

so it looks like we'll be getting some more codes in the near future.  they're going to send me into bankruptcy, it seems.   icon_lol

I actually beat Too Human, but I have no interest in playing the game again.  I might  pick up Sacred 2, but I am being real tight fisted with my gaming dollars lately... 59.99 seems alot for me here lately

I know the feeling.  I'm trying to keep my gaming budget down by buying games months after they hit the shelves.  However, I had been waiting on sacred 2 for so long that I just bit the bullet and traded in a crap load of my older games.  Doesn't hurt that I've befriended the manager at my local gamestop and he gave me the game at a used price and a little nudge on my trade in dollars.   icon_biggrin

I've played only the DEMO of TH and nothing of Sacred. But my guess is the controls in Sacred are not OMGKILLMYSELF bad.

ding.  I have both and the controls in Too Human killed it for me after 20 minutes.  I will probably go back and play again sometime but my god they are annoying.

Swerving away from the topic of my genitals, I was briefly a theater minor in college.  One of the acting teachers used to regale us with stories about some theater troupe he'd worked with years ago that went around hitting folks with a pillow.  They labeled it "art" because they were supposedly trying to get a reaction out of their audience.  I always thought that was rather stupid.  Getting a reaction with a physical act is easy, getting one without such a base visceral component, to me, is art.

The only thing I know for sure is that the 360 version isn't using the high rez pack that came with the PC collector's edition.  So the graphics aren't up to that standard.  If you're not using the high rez pack then you won't notice any graphical differences, i've been told.  The only other difference I'm curious about is content related.  It seems that the PC version has received quite a few updates since its release and I don't know if that content found its way into the 360 version. 

That being said, the game world is so freakin' huge that I doubt I'd ever get around to seeing that new content if it was included.  I've put in about 6 hours so far since Saturday on one character and he's only seen about 5 percent of the world.   icon_eek  Leveling is just right, too.  I hit 12 last night.  With a cap of 200, I can see this one is gonna have legs.

That was one of the better comedies on television.
Its ratings were low on NBC's best night. It couldn't hang. Not NBC's fault. Plus it sucked. Well OK not sucked, but there's only so much one can stand hearing the word, "karma."

For a lot of folks, the fact that you thought it sucked is proof that it actually was funny.
