Hey, The Scorpion King has seized the imagination of audiences worldwide! Perhaps the audiences are watching the sequels to try to get it back.

It's official; this movie is going to suck.

Why couldn't Warner be patient and do a clean, neat trilogy of Superman films like they did with Batman?

They can "reboot" afterwards and go crazy with Justice League stuff.

Quote from: DarkEL on August 18, 2013, 08:24:20 PM

Yeah - I know...

Every now and then I'll reduce down to one a day but it never lasts.  I can't stand coffee so diet soda is my main source.

I'll have 1-2 cans or one bottle in the morning to help wake up. Usually at least a couple of glasses at lunch, then another 1-2 in the afternoon to make it through the afternoon. Then another couple of glasses with dinner. And sometimes one or two more at night while working.



And I thought when I drank a bottle a day for a year back in college was bad...

Nowadays I have 2-3 cans a week. A can is the perfect size for a serving for me -- a bottle is too much and I'd usually leave it 2/3 empty, and when I get around to finishing it, it's flat.

Cans FTW.

And screw all that diet/zero crap. Regular FTW. No carcinogens. 180 calories doesn't make a difference, at least for me.
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Metroid Prime 2] God! The Emperor Ing! How do I get this over with?! on: August 18, 2013, 04:43:04 PM
ARGH! I got all the friggin' upgrades, all tanks and all that shit. 100%.

I slew the Boost Guardian and the Spider Guardian with little problems.

But this, RIGHT before finishing the stupid thing, I'm completely stuck on the Emperor Ing.

Sometimes the tentacles would be above my head -- can you believe how SLOWLY Samus looks up?!

And once you get rid of those, a shielded orb thingy reveals itself. I'd try to shoot it with a Super Missile. I'd hit it IF I'M LUCKY, but mostly I'd miss. Then more tentacles would come out, and more damage would occur.

After a few cycles of this, I die.

Do I just completely suck at this game or what?

It's notorious for being very hard, yet it's made by Blizzard and an official part of the Starcraft franchise, so many people *HAVE* played it.

A majority of them cried uncle, however. So I expect that bar to be longer than the others above.

Levels ranging from the 80's and 90's, Knights of the Round and that Materia that allows you to hit back four-fold with a spell. One for each member of my party.

Knowing that we only have two misses makes this a more crucial Day 1 lynch than usual.
   
Based on the small sample size, ravenvii's vote seemed the most wolfish.

I hate all this "DC Universe" thing.

Batman should be its own universe. Superman should be it's own universe.

I know comic book buffs will come swarming saying that Bats and Supes has been in one universe (almost) all along, but I don't give a shit; I don't read comics.

What were they called in your version of the book?

"Summere", which basically means buzzers, as in the noise insects make.

And I actually though it was common knowledge what a bugger means, but I guess thats a UK thing mostly, and not as widespread in the states.

Nope, but when I read the book with the name bugger in it I just assumed it was because they looked like bugs.

Same.
71  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Do you have a will? on: July 11, 2013, 02:37:50 AM

Quote from: Ironrod on July 10, 2013, 10:40:10 PM

I don't, and I really should. I assume that everything automatically passes to my wife (and vice versa), but if we should die together I fear that lawyers and the state would take what little we have...or, worse, it would go to my brother in law. My nephews and niece are beneficiaries to our retirement accounts, which are our only real assets, but our house and cars are worth at least something and there is no obvious heir to those.

So where do you get a legally binding will for free or dirt cheap, preferably without actually having to deal with a lawyer?

Depends on the state, but in California and New York, you can just write one yourself and sign it. Even better if you have a neutral witness sign it as well (make sure the witness is NOT mentioned in the will itself). Then put it in a safe, known, place.

There's templates online you can peruse for the language to use and so forth.

For a simple will (as your seems to be), there's no real reason to get an attorney to do it for you.

Quote from: Fireball1244 on July 05, 2013, 02:19:12 AM

I do wonder what they'll name it. If they go with Superman "titles," then there's "Man of Tomorrow" and "Last Son of Krypton", which might have made more sense for this one. Or could, perhaps, the biggest film of 2016 be called "The Big Blue Boy Scout"?

Last Son of Krypton... not bad.

I feel like they should've held the Man of Steel title for the second (and hopefully best) film, to align with the Dark Knight. But dunno, maybe they'll pull out a cooler title.

Dunno about you guys, but I saw the movie and enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to where they'll take this.

I like the serious/dark take on Superman. The only thing I didn't like in the movie was the Jor-El AI. Why is it even in there, and how was it there 2,000 (or however long it was) years before Baby Supes arrived?
