i didn't realise it was meant to be an alternate timeline....they shouldn't of had fucking Leonard Nimoy in it then Roll Eyes

I really suggest reading the 4-part prequel "Countdown"

The Pet area has 4 mini games to improve your pet; a hatchery to create pet combos; and the derby.

Completing each minigame (A maze run, shooting out of a cannon, a dance game much like SIMON, and a ""catch the food as it falls game) gains you points and stat increases.  The pets now can "age" through experience points.  When a pet is "adult" and the next one, it can be "hatched", combined with a second pet to mix the attributes.  Pets now have a rarity rating.  My Ice Pet provides me with a spell card.  The derby is a race against other players. aside from bragging rights, I don't know the point.  I don't do PvP in the arena either.

i would love for them to remake the 'space seed' episode for the second of the reboot movies

i for one,was only familiar with the Star Trek movies,and not so much the original series,so i never knew the back story of Khan and Kirk(apart from what came to light in 'Wrath of Khan'),it would be great to see this story on the big screen with the reboot cast

it would be quite cool it being the second in the reboot movies as well,to go along with the outcome in the second of the older movies  icon_wink

Please no. I hope not. They've stated that it's an alternate timeline, so then they should use that opportunity to tell stories that haven't already been told. Otherwise, you have a confused movie, wanting to be in an alternate timeline while original events still happen, and it seems like a crutch to be re-using things. If you want to see the Space Seed events, watch the episode.  They should tell stories that would have continued the series in a fourth season, or something to that effect. J.J Abrams wants an alternate timeline? He should go all out, not pussy out by recycling things, because by doing that, all he's showing is that he doesn't have enough creativity to carry the movies forward.

+1 for Rumpy.  Let a writer tell a new story.  The old ones still exist.  I don't want the Spiderman reboot to be an origin movie either.  ANd G-d help us, NO MORE BABY FROM THE EXPLODING PLANET part of the movies... we ALL know that one!

#15. Most of the original cast returned for the computer adventure "The Secret of Vulcan Fury". It included the last performance of DeForrest Kelly as Leonard McCoy.  Those lines were re-recorded.  I still want to try that game.

I'm just hoping that the movie isn't going to be:  A) bad enough, or B) good enough - to drive me to eBay to pay 50 bucks for a GH comic book or two.   icon_neutral

15!  I think it didn't do as well as Batman back then because it was much more straight.

The movie looks.......  ok, I'll wait for the review, but right now, I'm out.

I remember enjoying the comics from NOW in the early 90s.  I kinda hoped that the movie would have used those for a launch pad.

good to see others coming around. crash and burn activision, CRASH AND BURN.

In this one instance, the Wii has an advantage in Vicarious Visions.  Even if you count my Wii prejudice, you'll have to admit that the GH franchise pushed the interface, the ability to load and run off mass storage, the use of Mii(s) for jamming, the integration of the DS in Roadie Battle, and some other neat innovations that weren't in the other versions.  This despite the Wii being "underpowered."

FWIW, I play Rock Band on my PS3 and am looking forward to RB3 on that system.

Give him a big ass sledgehammer.

Just an aside.  In the myths, as I remember, Thor's hammer was short because Loki interfered with the creation.

so Loki is a haft blocker?

We took a look at the Samsung a few weeks ago. I thought the effects were very good (Monsters vs. Aliens.)  Aside from the premium cost though, I wouldn't consider the 3D until there was more content.  IFAIK, there is the Monsters vs. Aliens Blu-Ray and the Panasonic Demo disc out there.

I gave up being an early adaptor when I realized I am ALWAYS wrong about with format to get (8-Track vs. Cassete; BetaMax vs. VHS; LaserDisc vs. CED; DLP vs. LCD or Plasma)  Got lucky with Blu-Ray, but that's because I got a PS3 a year or so ago.
262  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Joss Whedon to direct 'The Avengers' on: May 10, 2010, 12:40:38 PM
Pure conjecture on the lineup.  I have not googled or know anything about internet leaked plans.

1) Cap
2) Thor
3) Black Widow
4) War Machine

Villian : Hulk under the influence of the Leader.

Why?  re: War Machine - Spoiler from Iron Man 2

        Minimize introductions to keep story moving. Put Wasp or Giant Man in there, too much time to take up.  Natasha Romanoff has been established as a field operative and working with Fury on the Avengers Initiative.

I don't believe that is a spoiler for anyone who hasn't seen Iron Man 2.

For future reference, where is the SPOILER tag?

I wouldn't be so sure that Dent is dead. Don't forget that both Batman and Gordon wanted to hide what had happened to him from the general population. They may have stowed him anonymously away in Arkham Asylum and held a fake funeral to give people closure. The last thing they'd want is for someone to find Two-Face and start asking him those uncomfortable and dangerous questions.

Also, why couldn't Dent survive that fall when Batman got away unscathed?

Because he's the goddamn Batman.

The Madonna stroking from almost every single character was getting a bit much in that episode, but otherwise it was pretty damned good.

And they thow reality away at every turn (Rachel whispers to the band that she'd like to do one particular Madonna song that she just thought of and the band knows it, and she remembers every word and the kids know where to harmonize and can even pull off some spontaneous choreographed moves).  However, they do it so willfully and in a manner that's self-aware, and so it works.

Santa fell off the roof and killed the kid's father -flattened him. He waited until the next year and cornered Santa. "Holy Christmas! I didn't think anyone saw me."  "I saw you old fart."

"It's amazing how realistic they make toys nowadays.  And to you a good night" RRRAAAATTTAAAATTAAATT (Santa shooting at the kid)
(Kid kills Santa with a poker)  "I did it, Mom, I killed Santa."

Skip to one year later - Spring.  The kid comes home from the mental hospital.  Mom hears something at the door and goes to check.  Final panel- Mom squished under a colored patterned egg.  "THE BUNNY!"

Now I have to go find it - pretty sure it was DC or Epic.

Kirk was an admiral at one time, guess he doesn't count either right?  In fact wasn't he an admiral in 'everyone's' fav movie with him?  I think anyone who captains a ship can count here, not just the rank.  smart-ass

come to think of it, I think that Picard may be the only Star Trek captain that they never mention becoming more than captain.  Admiral Kirk, Admiral Janeway, Admiral Archer, whatever Sisko... unless it was mentioned in All Good Things.
