I went in with ho-hum expectations and came out impressed. The action is solid and the film does a good job with mixing in humor whenever possible.

Where the film fails is coming up with good villains, although I like what they attempted to do. They just didn't stick the landing. Rhino was ridiculous and signing an actor like Paul Giamatti to play that character actually made it worse, not better. I can handle a no-name actor screaming in a really bad Russian accent without actually saying anything, but not an oscar nominated / golden globe winning actor. I got angry anytime his character was on screen, which luckily wasn't for long. Harry's story was better, but accelerated to make sure he became the Goblin at the end of the movie. But they had to, because while Electro's story wasn't terrible, there was no way he could carry the entire movie.

More on the Rhino:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Almost all of his footage from the movie was in the trailer. He shouldn't have been in the trailer at all, because all his character was is a plot device to get spider-man back in action at the end of the movie. I could live with that if the actor wasn't Paul Giamatti.

Still, I would give the film 3-out-of-5 stars. I enjoyed it a lot, which is all that matters. And I'm excited with the set up for the next film.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Sinister Six!

Also, was Harry's secretary
Spoiler for Hiden:
Black Cat?

And there isn't anything during the credits after the xmen clip. So don't waste your time like I did.

Going tonight to see this. I saw the first one and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I like their take on the character. Tobey's spiderman had the nerdy outcast down to a perfection, but wasn't sarcastic or funny. Garfield has nailed the sarcastic and humor of the character, but he doesn't seem like a nerdy outcast at all. He looks like one of the cool kids. Blend those two versions of the character together and you might have a damn near perfect Spider-Man.

I'm expecting some fun action sequences and to laugh a couple of times during the movie. If I get that then I'll consider it a success.

Great! Downloading now, although I have a decent backlog already of games I need to try.

My first time through I bee-lined for the sector exit and got far enough to unlock an engi ship. Then I saw the in-game tip to explore each sector thoroughly, but I haven't been doing a fantastic job doing that either. I just unlocked a third ship, so I'll try that out on my lunch break.
46  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [ios] 'FTL: Faster Than Light' is Headed to iPad in Early 2014 on: April 06, 2014, 05:14:33 PM
Having never played this on the pc I am thoroughly enjoying this. I suck at it though. I can't even get far on easy.
47  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: April 05, 2014, 04:19:02 PM
That does look fantastic. It might have to wait though until I can get some time in with FTL. I have heard way too much about that game, so it's at the top of my purchase list.
48  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [iOS - also on Steam] Bravelands on: March 20, 2014, 09:34:36 AM
I bought it last night and played for about an hour. It's pretty good and does a decent job ramping up the difficulty so that you can learn via trial and error, but outside of special attacks it doesn't really explain much. I kind of wish there was a text box to explain exactly how the hourglass and shield buttons work. I assume the hourglass is the wait option and the shield provides a boost to defense, but it would be nice to know for sure. The graphics are wonderful though. So far I'm happy with the purchase and having fun.
49  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [iOS - also on Steam] Bravelands on: March 19, 2014, 12:52:37 PM
Seems interesting. I'll probably download it, as I just got an iPad and I'm looking for some good games. I pretty much only plays iOS games anymore. My biggest concern is that some are saying bravelands is light on strategy.

It's been a fun couple of days. I've been routinely getting 30+ kills with the riot shield and C4 combo, and then went 23-0 in a game of free-for-all which allowed me to have the guard dog and vulture up at the same time twice in the same life.
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3/PC/Wii U/PS4/XB1]Call of Duty:Ghosts on: December 20, 2013, 02:18:10 PM
The new clan war has started. They show you how many points you get for capturing each node. It looks like we can get 25 points for getting 12 wins in hard core search and rescue, compared to 15 points for 80 wins in team deathmatch. If we can get a group of people together we should be able to bang out these smaller nodes relatively quickly.

We have the search and destroy node, which put us in 1st place. It's only 8 wins and gives a ton of points, so when we lose it we might want to focus on taking it back.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3/PC/Wii U/PS4/XB1]Call of Duty:Ghosts on: December 09, 2013, 12:26:37 AM
Well if I could log into the game I will do my best to recapture the deathmatch node, but it won't fetch my online profile.

We've got the nodes for Team Deathmatch and Kill Confirmed.  Bonus xp and we keep the lead if you keep winning in those.  We get special rewards if we can hold a node for 3 days, so do it!

We can actually defend the nodes? Good to know.

I'm looking forward to taking part in this current clan war. I'm feeling a little sick today, so I'm clearing my schedule this afternoon and I'm just going to sit on the couch and play this the rest of the day.

I'll be getting a copy of this for the 360 for my birthday, which is good because I don't think I would have been able to get it for awhile otherwise.

One last hurrah with COD on the current gen.

I tried the 360 beta and thought it was ok. It's a battlefield game, so I'm inherently going to enjoy it. But my gaming time has fallen off a cliff this year, and the beta didn't do much to make me want to buy this game.
59  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Plants vs Zombies 2 out in iOS app store on: August 15, 2013, 01:27:44 PM
Cool. Downloading now. I'll give it a shot at lunch.
60  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: GT Werewolf - Game Over. Wolves Win! on: August 15, 2013, 01:25:03 PM
If I had known that the hunter didnt have a shot I wouldn't have revealed myself. FWIW tapatalk doesn't have any of the rules crossed out. Once I saw that I knew the game was lost because the correct move was to then lynch me.

Still fun though, even shortened the way it was. Thanks moliere for running this!
61  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: GT Werewolf game has begun (again)! on: August 13, 2013, 04:03:49 PM
It would take 3 votes for a majority, which means you could never kill a wolf. I would say the wolves would win.
62  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: GT Werewolf game has begun (again)! on: August 07, 2013, 08:27:15 PM
I understand that I'm the most obvious to lynch, but that will only result in a win for the wolves. I don't know why ravenvii falsely claimed seer, but he did. I thought I had a way to prove myself, but with the hunter losing his shot it makes it much more difficult.

I'm not sold on stessier as the hunter. It doesn't make much sense for him to reveal himself when he did. But it's been a couple of days now and nobody has stepped forward to counter the claim. With this being our last chance at getting a wolf, I'm willing to assume that he is the hunter.

That leaves purge, envy24, and jaydee. This hasn't been a very active game, but envy and jaydee have posted almost nothing.

I don't like it. I wish I had more to go on. But...

So are msteelers and I the only players left?

Possibly, although the game was kind of put on hold when purge said he had something important to say, but we had to wait five days to hear it.

Why should we trust msteelers?  It makes no sense that we lynched a Villager who claimed Seer upon his death but was not actually the Seer.

I think msteelers was trying to draw the non-existent shot.

You'll have to ask ravenvii why he falsely claimed seer. He handicapped the villagers.

The more interesting question is why would the hunter reveal who he was after realizing there is no longer any shot?
65  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Do you wear a watch? on: August 04, 2013, 03:03:29 PM
I just started wearing a watch again a few months ago. I have one watch that I save for special occasions where I need to dress up. I have another watch for more normal occasions.

Needless to say, knowing the time has very little to do with why I like wearing a watch. It's an accessory for me, which is incredibly odd because I usually don't care much about fashion. Example A: I'm currently at work wearing jeans with a hole in the crotch.
66  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: GT Werewolf game has begun (again)! on: August 02, 2013, 05:40:59 PM
4 villagers, 2 wolves. If we miss our lynch today that's 3 villagers and 2 wolves. The night kill would make it 2 villagers and 2 wolves, and a loss for the villagers. So, unless the hunter makes a miracle save, this is our last chance.

So, with that said, I'm the seer. Unfortunately ravenvii proclaimed that he was the seer as he went marching to his death so I'm pretty sure the first reaction is going to be to have me lynched, but that will only end up being a win for the wolves. Last night I scanned Soulchilde, and he was (unfortunately) clean. That means two of Purge, stessier, envy24, and JayDee are the wolves. Now the odds are 50/50 at least of hitting a wolf. And if the Hunter is still alive, he can improve our odds even more.

By shooting me, I will come up human. That will prove Soulchilde is human and give a voting block of two known good guys. This also means the wolves have less places to hide, as 2 out of the remaining 3 unknowns will be wolves. That's a 66% chance of hitting a wolf and extending the game. Those seem to be the best numbers I can come up with.

Oh, and since I might be dead before I get to post again, Stessier and envy would be the only two unprovens to have voted for ravenvii. Just sayin.
67  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: GT Werewolf game has begun (again)! on: July 31, 2013, 12:13:06 PM

I was afraid at first he was the kamikaze wolf, but looking at the numbers even if he kills a human today we have until the day 3 vote to find the other wolf.

68  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: GT Werewolf game has begun (again)! on: July 28, 2013, 03:55:41 AM
I'm changing my vote to envy24 for lack of participation.

Sure, he could be "working" like he claims. Or he could be trying to hide any unseemly tufts of fur.

There's something about his post that has been bugging me.

What would that be exactly?

The expression that you were cured of lycanthropy seemed forced and out of place to me. Plus it bugs me anytime someone leaves their own name off of a list of potential wolves, unless they are a known good guy.

I'm glad to see that I'm not crazy. I downloaded the patch Saturday, started a new game, and have dumped several hours into the new playthrough. I knew the patch was supposed to fix the cars repairing at the games dawn, but it didn't seem like any of the cars were being repaired.

It did seen like I wasn't getting the too many infestations event, but the game started with the two closest homes to the church infested, and that quickly became 4 homes in the starting city. It made the early game brutal, but I was able to clear them out and haven't seen any since.

So far I'm still enjoying it, even with the occasional hiccup.

I don't agree with most of the hand wringing about used games, but neither console has done anything that makes me think "I have to have that, now!". In fact, the more I read the more I'm thinking about just finally upgrading to a PC.

Of course, my car just died. So buying anything is out of the question until I get that under control.

My title is sports director at the AM radio station I work at, but in truth I am our play-by-play guy for our sporting events, who moonlights as a producer and talk show host when the need arises.

That doesn't pay that well, so I'm also a machinist. I work part time in my parents machine shop, programming milling machines and generally trying not to impale myself on whatever piece of metal I happen to be working on.

That also doesn't pay all that well, so I got a job working for the Mets. I ran sound for their home spring training games, and will continue to do that over the summer with their minor league team.

I work harder now than I ever have, and make less money. Three cheers for chasing your dreams!!!
