The reason Tony Stark created all of those suits was because he started creating them compulsively after having panic attacks because of what happened in The Avengers. He's a man whose entire world is built on science and then he's fighting aliens along side a Norse god and flew through a rip in space and so tried to deal with that fallout by creating suits to protect him from any situation. In one and two he never really comes to terms with the danger he puts himself in, Iron Man and Tony Stark might as well be two different people. In 3 he doesn't feel confident or safe outside of the suit. At the end when he blows the suits up and says he's Iron Man it's accepting that the suit isn't what makes him a hero.
Also, the bad guy sort of couldn't make that stuff stable. That was the point.
Iron Man 2 needing to set up the Avengers killed the pacing of that movie.
Look forward to your continued GTA impressions Wombat, I get what you mean with characters forced to do things that seems against their nature. I've found the three protagonist thing really works well with fixing this issue as instead of running chores for other people the characters do jobs for their own selfish reasons usually, which makes more sense with the characters in the game. As a minor correction, the checkpoint system used in 5 is pretty much the same as in Ballad of Gay Tony. For both better and worse GTAV doesn't really borrow ideas from other series, even the good ones.
That shirt Rockstar sends is ugly. The van keychain light is pretty nifty though.
John was good, but I like the dynamic of Cheapy/Wombat/Shipwreck.
While I am of the opinion that the initial Penny Arcade webcomic referencing Dickwolves was not trying to be intentionally insensitive to rape victims; it was used as slang. Jerry and Mike's response to their critics was callous. They decided to create "Dickwolves" jerseys and monetize on the whole ordeal. Seemingly becoming "pro-rape" and saying you to anyone who was offended by the webcomic. They later then pulled the jerseys to their own chagrin.
At this year's PAX Prime during their panel, Mike decides to open an old wound and state that he regretted pulling the "Dickwolves" merchandise. Why go there?
They brought it up because their business manager asked if they had a problem with anything he did while working for them. Mike responded that he regreted that the guy pulled the dickwolves merchandise, not for monetary reasons but that it continued to engage a controversy. They clarified this in a recent newspost that they regretted their reaction, selling the merchandise and pulling the merchandise because each action only seemed to make it worse.
The news about it out of PAX takes a lot of the context out of how he was asked the question, and on the cagcast they assume a lot of motives on behalf of the PA guys based on a story that exaggerates the circumstances of the Q and A session. They acted like dicks after the initial comic, and they should be able to tell that people where offended since they can't even answer a question slightly related to it two years without it blowing up into its own controversy.
