USA Today article basically says that Cap is Superman in personality.  I'd have to agree.

I have such a love for the Michael York,Oliver Reed Three and Four Musketeers that i will probably give this a miss,just like i did with Charlie Sheen and Kiefer Sutherlands version
I'm with you on the Michael York version from the 70s. I did see the Sheen/Sutherland version, but I barely recall it I can't even remember who played de Rochforte or Constance in that remake. I can reel off almost the entire cast from the 70s edition.


This +10.  I've got to get that DVD two pack.  What a cast. Look it up on IMDB if you haven't seen them.

I see that new content is scheduled to open again.

My death has had trouble with ONE battle (that I still can't do at lvl 42)

It involves a life boss doesn't it? frakkin life bosses.

Sorry I missed this earlier, no. Life bosses haven't been a problem, I keeps some fairy to know the sheild down.  This problem is :

posiible spoiler, but I will try to be vague

Spoiler for Hiden:

Aside from the initial amount they give, I haven't spent any crowns.  Personally, I wait until they have a 1 year for $59.99 sale, then jump on.  Right now I am on fro six months, when there runs out, I will garden, pet pavilion, and random encountrs until I see a good subscription sale.
166  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Wizard101 anyone? on: March 07, 2011, 06:56:38 PM
Your primary school let's you take advantage of the power pips and certain quest spells. You can train in multiple schools past that, but each school requires that you start with lower level spells then progress up. In other words, if you want have good balance spells, you will have to spend training points on the low levels. If you want that and storm, you'll wind up with lots of low cards.  Your primary school is free to train, the rest cost points.  Grainy points are given after certain levels and are limited.

storm has great spells and you can enhance your hit points and probability to hit with equipment.

167  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Wizard101 anyone? on: March 07, 2011, 12:47:07 AM
PairIng up will let you get past about anything. I don't think the school matters for that. I think a life or death second school would be good for myth. My wife says that balance is the way to go for a second on myth. Her second character was myth so I would believe her. She originally used storm/life.

What school do you plan to use?

For me, my ice/storm/moon has trouble soloing in the dungeons.  My death has had trouble with ONE battle (that I still can't do at lvl 42)
168  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Legosi, Karloff, Chaney, Price, Lee... did I leave anyone out? on: February 21, 2011, 03:42:14 AM
left off John Caradine as well. I would say that Cushing and Lee are getting pretty modern. by that time you can start adding Jonathan Frid.

Also, are we talking Chaney Sr., Jr., or both?
169  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Spartacus Season Two on: February 13, 2011, 06:15:50 PM
We are assuming that this series will end with the arrival of Spartacus.  Is there someplace that said that?  It could be that there will be room in between this prequel and season 1 for another story.

I don't have a 360' but we alternate between the PS3 and Wii for Netflix depending on Which one happens to be up. no complaints with either format as far as streaming. especially true of T V shoes when we are not expecting great sound anyway

To all the kids who survived the 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150 channels on cable or satellite TV, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or chat rooms! A lot of us didn't have air-conditioning in our homes until the 70's, but


I don't know about you guys,  ut I had Odyssee, HBO if I played with the fine tuning, Super 8 versions of movies (including some pr0n), cassets, 8-track, and a transistor radio. I remember the "Buckle up for safety"ads along with the anti-smoking ones.  maybe the 70's part should be dropped.  smile

173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Best fitness game? on: January 10, 2011, 04:45:40 PM
I have EA Active for the Wii.  the Wiimote is only used for a few activities.  most of the time I leave it on the couch and hit the "A" button while the load screen is up to avoid the "lost communication" message.

I assume, but don't know, that the PS3 version would be similar in making sure the communications stay on between the bands and the receiver.

I am waiting for an NFL version without the bands since I really don't want to have two sets laying around.

FWIW, I have been using it sin e Christmas and am doing the card kickstart.

since Babylon 5 was mentioned, Deep Space 9.

off the wall, but very funny:  Jeeves and Wooster.  Also, Black Adder

I've enjoyed seasons 1- 6 of Scrubs

Smallville  took some endurance, but the first couple seasons of Lois and Clark were good.

178  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie]Green Hornet on: December 22, 2010, 12:45:11 PM
I saw this last night.  Very enjoyable, it is a Comedy-Action movie.  The comedy comes from the interaction between Seth Rogan and Jay Chao.  Cameron Diaz's character is essential and not used much at the same time.

THere was a small bit of the Hornet Theme from the 60's in the movie (about 5 secs).  Generally, there is an irony in that in the 1960's Batman was the comedy and the Green Hornet was the more serious.  In 2010, Batman is deadly dark and the Green Hornet is lighter.

Since I lost the subscription, I have been pet aging and gardening.  gardening is surprisingly fun and profitable.  I might finish that last crafting task with the mandrakes I get from the boom shrooms.  who besides the guy in golem court is training/selling garden seeds, spells, etc.?
180  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Young Justice on: November 28, 2010, 09:00:01 PM
watched it; enjoyed it.  I like that it is outside the continuity (Earth -16? Why not?).  it took a while to get used to the idea that Dick Greyson is Robin and Walley West is Kid Flash. So far that has not been significant.

Yes.. looking for my second Lounge Lizard in the survey camp.  Soloing in Cestia is not easy at this level.  Yesterday, I had a storm wizard with me.

Is there a way to have multiple bands in RB3? I can't see an option for it.

One thing someone mentioned as being not in the game that I definitely heard last night was the crowd singing along.  It's a little more subtle now, but it definitely happened.

I heard it with Wanted Dead or Alive.  Might it be part of the older track?

Celestia is open and haven't gone there yet.  I have been GM Ice on the Halloween quests though.  An unmentioned update that is througing off my game:  Changes to the Minion AI.

Maybe it's just the Ice minion BUT, part of my strategy has been to use my Ice Minion because I knew that "he" would pass, cast fire elf, pass.. if fizzle then cast Storm Shark, if HP low, then cast Ghoul.  Knowing the route, I would use the ice minion when faced with ice school foes.  Now in the Halloween tower, facing and ice foe, I summon the Ice Minion for back up.  Pass, then ICE BATS?  Then an ICE TIGER? Then and ICE SHARK?  Ok it makes sense to cast Ice spells, but it has messed up my rhythm.

Anyone else notice this change?
186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official Rock Band DLC News, Impressions, and Comments Thread on: October 21, 2010, 05:37:12 PM
I would have like "I've Loved These Days" and "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" In addition to the ones listed, but maybe down the road.  I'll definitely get this pack.

any more Monkees coming?  drool

Depending on what you want and the group:

One drum set, 2 guitars, 3 mics, a USB hub for all of it, and w/RB3 a keyboard


These can be used in any combination, so decide your "group"

Yes. Once you set up the ps3 go into the main menu, sounds, and you can direct the sound from the HDMI to Dolby 5.1 etc.

PS3 Keyboard bundle not available in US

Some sort of trade agreement.  You can still buy a keyboard and the game, but no bundle.

They're trying to take care of pre-orders, at least.

OK.. if I'm not getting a keyboard bundle, how can I lobby for the "ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW" track pack to be released b-4 Halloween in trade?   drool

Oh, is the Resident Evil 5 -> Move patch already available?  I'd assumed that was still in the works just like the Heavy Rain patch.

I'd love to hear more impressions of RE5.  I thought the Wii version of RE4 was the definitive one thanks to the incredibly intuitive controls, and I'd love see it again in high-definition.

-Autistic Angel

What AA said.  My wife got into RE because of the Wii and the reason we have a PS3 at all is because of RE5.  A couple of questions:
If I jump on the Move, what do I need?  I'm guessing the starter pack with the camera since I have nothing along that way for the PS3
Has there been any proble switching out controllers on the two USB ports?  Between the regular controller, Rock Band, and now this, I am using one USB hub and contemplating another.
If anyone has a Wii and PS3; any conflicts with "stuff" packed around the TV?

B:  The youngest of the regular visitors is now 13 or 14, and his mom won't let him play games like HoD... also, I'm in the age group that "age-appropriate" for most of my friends could mean that they may be too old to appreciate zombie-killing games, lmao.

Thanks!

199  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Sandman the series? on: September 05, 2010, 03:20:53 AM
I'll agree that long Sopranos type tv series is the only way to go with Sandman, but I just can't see it working without:

1) Lots of CGI
2) Lots of violence
3) Being anywhere but a cable station that will go R, like HBO or SHO

actually, the pacing and nerd factor, I really can't see it working outside of the written media (comics and short stories)

Now, how about a Calvin and Hobbs sitcom with a CGI tiger?
