12085  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW - Bored at 60? on: March 31, 2005, 06:41:52 PM
I hit 60 about two weeks ago and now I am bored as hell.  What do you guys do at 60 to have fun?  

I don't really like instances because you have to be there for at least 2 hours without doing anything else.  It seems that is all anyone does at 60, the constant instance runs for better gear.

All I find myself doing is running around killing stuff for cash and the occasional good item.  Why did I hit 60 dammit!?

Quote from: "Rob_Merritt"
Haven't you heard that they are planning anorher Game boy this year? They are scared.


I've heard rumors, but isn't that just stupid?  You just released the DS (which is blah, IMO) on the heels of the really successful SP, and now you want people to spend another $xxx to buy something else?  WTF, Big N?  I'll believe it when I see it, it just doesn't make sense.
12093  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP - When does Nintendo get scared? on: March 24, 2005, 11:03:42 PM
I won't be getting a PSP, but of course I follow the gaming world and it's many iterations.

For those in the know, when does Nintendo get scared about the PSP?  It seems pretty obvious that it's going to be a smash hit and take market share away from the Gameboy.

Discuss.

Uh, when the hell was Mara Jade ever on screen, in anything? Or was she just fugly in a run of comics or something?


A few years back, they hired a character to pose as Mara Jade for pics.

I did some research and found some interesting things.

http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/marajadeskywalker/?id=eu

That is the starwars.com databank entry for Mara Jade (now Skywalker as she marries him in the books).  Well in the top right is the actress who they originally hired.  In the middle left appears to be an actress cast to play her in the RotK SE that I did not know about.  I know her back story says she was at Jabba's Palace as the Emporer's Hand, but I didn't know that was supposed to be her in the movie.  I actually haven't watched that dance number *shudders* in a while, is she even in the SE?

EDIT: More research, nope, it was for a card game:

Quote
One of the most remarkable incarnations of Mara was a live action photo taken for the Enhanced Jabba's Palace expansion set for the Star Wars Customizable Card Game. Decipher Inc. hired model Shannon Baksa to pose as Mara for a number of card images. Many subsequent products have since borne Baksa's likeness to represent Mara.


I can't seem to find more pics of the original actress that was hired for a photo shoot with her....will keep looking.

EDIT:  And here it is:

12095  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Star Wars: Republic Commando. What a blast! on: March 24, 2005, 09:42:56 PM
I just got this for PC and I'm really liking it too.  I love me some Star Wars FPS and this is just what the doc ordered.  Graphics are good, sound is excellent, and the game is fun.  Good times.

So far my only gripe is that the rifle is weak.  I am trying to shoot geonosians and it's either missing them, or they have mad armor!

I must have watched General Grievous in action a dozen times last night. If they show him delivering a massive beating to anyone in ROTS, then the crowd might go nuts with geek glee. biggrin Also, I had to do a freeze frame on it but I caught the blink-and-you-miss-it shots during Anakin's beat-down of the Sith warrior. The entire lightsaber fight with him was frickin' awesome, but the temple battle was especially grand, not to mention filled to the brim with foreshadowing. thumbsup


That was no man, baby.  It's a female Sith!


By "him" I meant Anakin, not the Sith female. smile

El Gigante?  The huge guy?

Keep shooting him until that thing sprouts out of his back, then either shoot that, or run up to him and use the action button command.

So, based on the ending of the last movie (warning, spoilers ahead), I'm guessing that there will actually be two villians in the next movie - whoever this new villian is and the second Green Goblin?


I hope they leave the second green goblin out.  Two villians is one too many.

Here is the guy who was cast as Eddie Brock in Spider-Man:

http://imdb.com/name/nm0263472/

Considering that he was uncredited, I think that they could go with this new guy.

I forgot about the guy who played Dr. Connors, so the Lizard is out.  Scorpion didn't cross my mind either.  What about Electro?  What about the guy with the sound blasting gauntlets?

Got this in my inbox this morning.  There's no mention of who it could be.  Based on looks alone I say Venom or Sandman.

OSCAR NOMINEE THOMAS HADEN CHURCH CAST AS
THE NEW NEMESIS IN SONY PICTURES' AND MARVEL STUDIOS' "SPIDER-MAN 3"


Latest Adventure set to debut worldwide on May 4, 2007


CULVER CITY, CA March 22, 2005 - Thomas Haden Church, who was most recently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in "Sideways", has been cast as Spider-Man's new archenemy in the next chapter of the "Spider-Man" adventure, it was announced by director Sam Raimi and producers Laura Ziskin and Marvel Studios' Avi Arad.


"Spider-Man  3", which is scheduled for release on May 4, 2007, will reunite the successful team that was responsible for the first two blockbuster films. The franchise has grossed more than $1.5 billion in worldwide ticket sales and the new film will again reteam director Raimi, producers Ziskin and Arad, and actors Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Kirsten Dunst as M.J..


Production on "Spider-Man 3" is scheduled to begin early next year.


"In addition to the on-going relationship between Peter Parker and M.J., these films are driven by the great actors who have brought our villains to life," said Raimi. "Thomas Haden Church will be a fantastic and challenging new nemesis and we all look forward to working with him."


The identity of the new villain is being kept secret and while speculation is  rampant about which character is being called into action, the studio will not comment on the casting beyond confirming Church.

Just beat the game tonight, finally.  It was good fun, although by the end of 19+ hours, I was about done with it.  In a couple of months/years when a sequel comes out, I'll be down to jump in for some more RE fun.

You know, I'm starting to think Lucas hasn't watched the original trilogy in a long frickin' time:

CNN Interview

Quote
"Obviously, fans would love to see a movie about Darth Vader running around killing people," said Lucas, who also was on hand to receive a "galactic-achievement award" from ShoWest organizers. "I'm not telling that story, and I'm not interested in that. That's not what the movie is.

"This first trilogy is really about the father, the struggles of a father, or a man, basically, to find himself, and at the same time fall into a trap of wanting certain powers, making a pact with the devil and basically spending the rest of his life regretting it."


Regretting it? Vader regrets nothing until possibly the "Obi-Wan once thought as you do..." speech on Endor. He wants order and control and the rabble made to listen, which is what the Emperor essentially does. What the hell?  :?


I agree, Vader is one bad mofo.  I don't see him regretting crap until the Endor talk with Luke.  For being a murderous, ruiner of the free world, Vader sure has a soft spot for his kids.  PFFT!

OK.... another question:

Is the Green Female Jedi extremely attractive, or am I just losing it totally?

If you stop the trailer when she is onscreen, and look beyond the Twilek "stuff"  (she is a Twilek, right?) - She looks to be pretty damn hot.

Thoughts on this?

Who is she, anyway?

LD


Yes she is a Twilek (Twi'lek?).  The Jedi's name is Aayla Secura, the actress is Amy Allen.  Check it here:  http://imdb.com/name/nm1116989/

IMO, they should have made Mara Jade that hot.
