If anyone watched after the credits you got to see Nick Fury portrayed by Sam Jackson. I think that since this is going to be a trilogy i think that the third one in the series is going to be about the Avengers or they will make a separate movie. Since the sequel is going to focus on Iron Mans temporary replacement.
LAME! I missed that, but I knew Nick Fury was coming soon because of SHIELD

I thought the black guy in the movie was going to be Nick Fury...

Console Games / What happened?
« on: May 04, 2008, 11:58:40 am »
So the other day I was looking through my collection of Gamecube games, and it suddenly dawned on me: from the fall of 2002 to the end of 2004 we had no major developments in the world of video games. Period.
In 2002 we had Animal Crossing, Metroid Prime, Halo, Pro Skater 4, Morrowind, Battlefield 1942, Rachet & Clank, and Warcraft III. All were games that reinvented their genres. All were huge successes.
In 2003 we had WarioWare, Viewtiful Joe, Prince of Persia, and Beyond Good and Evil. All of them had modest sales. The best selling games were all orthodox sequels, with the exception of Wind Waker and Enter the Matrix, which were generally hated by everyone.
2004 was the same thing, sans innovative games.
In late 2004/2005 we had Resident Evil 4, WoW, Half-life 2, God of War... lots of great stuff! (But it really wasn't until much later that these got picked up. This is especially true for the console front.)

So my question is this--what happened? For two years games just plain sucked.

Good:
- Doesn't take self too seriously
- Funny
- Sticks to mood of material
- Exhilarating flying scenes
- Decent love story, filled with authentic awkwardness
- Excellent acting by Robert Downy Junior
- SHIELD SHIELD SHIELD

Bad:
- Cliched stuff. Oh my god the old white former business partner is evil wowwie.
- Horrible acting from minor characters
- Plot holes
- Jimmy Neutron-ish pretend science.
- Iron Man is too powerful! He should be more like a bee than a tank.
- Parts where he builds the suit are kinda dumb... just make it a montage please, or make it have some kind of "breakthrough" moment.

Well not technically video game music, John Adams's music is absolutely enthralling, and appears in the Modern Era of Civ4.

The Sims's mood-setting pieces were the first songs of their type I had heard. They're still pretty good.

PC Games / Aybraus's Renamed Solutions for Stuff Thread
« on: May 02, 2008, 02:21:15 pm »
XCITING + NEW STUFF = LOOK HERE
Problem: This is another MMO-related one. People are paying (with real american dollars) Chinese sweatshop owners to get virtual money in online games! Illegally! It inflates the economy and ruins lives.
Solution: Unfortunately, MMO devs, you'll have to embrace dollar-to-gold transactions, but that doesn't mean you can't restrict it. What?
Make a system so that players can turn a certain amount of money into a certain amount of one in-game material. Not in-game currency, material, like bricks or wood or wine, something that can't easily be gathered in game. So they pick the material, then put in a buncha moneys, then put in their credit card numbers.
This will encourage trade and be self-regulating (because people only need so much bricks). If the system is convenient to use, people will use it more than IGE.
Also, force players who reach a certain a certain amount of wealth to spend it on NPC crap before they can get any more. Or just go Zelda and cap people's money tank.
Or ban chinese ips
========================
BORING OLD STUFF WHY BOTHER READING?
Problem: Second Life is filled with weirdos and people I don't like. It seems that anarchy actually is too idealistic. What can I do?
Solution: Having grown up on the streets, I know that even without any  rules, people can make order by using the rule "Dying is bad." Agriculture aside, that's basically how civilization was made. Unfortunately, there's no way to make Second Life players pay the ultimate price. Well I say they should make killing a feature!
Once a day, a given player can kill another using a dialogue box. Ten players will be given the first four letters of his username (so they can do some justice against the murderer if the victim didn't deserve it).
The player who has been killed will have to pay a small fee in order to come back into the game with all possessions intact but under a new name. Having played an MMO and grown up on the streets I know this is like dying in the cyberworld.
The "kill button" will insure that nobody acts in a way that is not appreciated by the rest of the community.

Cow with wings.
Please explain this.

And yeah, I saw the mech on #3 as well. Looks like Metal Gear.

I'll put some more up later today, around when we get to pg 3.

I hope I don't get flamed for saying this, but I agree to him about the confusion. I just get lost in Super Smash Bros multiplayer.


I agree with him on his "That guy" section.


When Brawl first came out, I was being shipped off to my company's HQ for 2 weeks of training. I brought my Wii and Brawl to the hotel room. I proceeded to play it the 10 hours to unlock all the characters. I then managed to convince some of my classmates (none of whom are gamers) who were also staying at the hotel to stop by my room and play some Brawl with me.

Even after giving myself a big handicap, I was whipping their butts.

Yeah, I was "That Guy"

My fiance doesn't like playing brawl with me for the same reason.

 :'( I don't wanna be 'that guy'


Then avoid this game.

Everything Else / Inkblots
« on: April 24, 2008, 12:34:08 pm »
So let's go ahead and identify what each of these inkblots are. Should be fun. I made them with this thing.

Look at the inkblots first and scribble down your perceptions, then post them and try to interpret them if you want.

ONE


TWO


THREE


FOUR


FIVE


My thoughts are:
One--Father Time
Two--A moth, then Tabuu from Smash bros
Three--A lion, then a Golem
Four--A skeleton knight with a face painted on his crotch, then some animals making a pyramid
Five--A yoga master, then a skeleton with a bowtie.

I'm considering getting a copy of Windows so I can play this awesome Civ4 mod (as well as LOTRO and Oblivion). Has anyone played it?

1) The game is normal speed and standard.
2) PW's problems are called difficulty, and they're not impossible to get around.

If I had known that...
