The Hulk could beat Superman in brute strength, but Superman would probably toss the Hulk into the Sun if he knew he didn't have to hold back. It's one of those conversations that's really not worth having because there are too many variables.

Out of all the games currently on sale in the Xbox Ultimate sale, the only three I don't have are Divinity (I have Ego Draconis, but not the expansion), Brothers in Arms, and WWE.....I might pick up Divinity just to get something for cheap lol

I'm biting on Borderlands 2 even if I don't play if for awhile, no way it's not worth $10.

Everyone seems to hate Loeb.

 

His 5 issue nova arc wasn't bad actually.  Didn't hurt that it had McGuinness on art.

 

Wait, did someone just post TLoU spoilers on the last page?  If so, cut that shit out.

No?

 

There were spoilers for Super, which is a totally different thing.

Reading the ending of TLoU, I don't know how anyone could really spoil it. Sounds incredibly anti-climactic and like it doesn't matter.

Is super like a shitty version of kick ass?

 

More like kick ass is a shitty version of Super.

 

Spoiler

 

I think I talked about Super in the GGT a long long time ago.  But now that it's been spoiled, I'll just say the scene where Boltie died made me sick to my stomach.  That movie was unexpectedly disturbing by the end of it.

 

Also Super was written and directed by James Gunn, which makes it not shitty.

Ouch, good to know, not really going for achievements right now though just trying to clear up some backlog games so I'm mainly focusing on just beating them all before the new systems and such, if there's ones I like a lot I may go back and replay them for that stuff later.

I'm rewatching Super and while I like it more than the last time I saw it, it's still not all that great to me. Also, it's pretty disturbing throughout.

One one hand, the fact that it's disturbing is pretty on point with what the movie is trying to do.  On the other hand, the comedy elements end up mixing with it in a weird way (and the marketing is particularly misleading). It's a movie that I can appreciate in a lot of ways, but I wouldn't want to watch it again.

That's probably a good thing. All rewatching it is gaining me is remembering how awesome Michael Rooker, Nathan Fillion, and Bacon are in it.

 

Also, tentacle porn.

I liked Super. I rank it close to Kick Ass as far as the real-world hero schtick goes. For different reasons, obviously. Wasn't as wild about other recent films in the genre like Defendor or Special.

 

TLoU is awesome, including the ending.

 

Is that really what Brand New is doing now? That's depressing as shit. I'm going back to Devil/God.

Upgrades are never permanent.  If you play on the harder difficulty, taking damage actually makes you lose upgrades, I think.  Also, if you drop a level whatever weapon for something else and pick up another one, I think you start new.

 

It's part of the game's core mechanics.

I posted my thoughts on Super in the movie thread, but I will sum it up here. Drastic tonal changes in any sort of medium, especially movies, is not a good thing. It starts off comical, weird and outlandish which is all amazing, but then it starts getting incredibly serious. Way too serious to consider it better than Kick Ass. Kick Ass blended everything nicely.

 

I'd also just like to toss out that I hated the Kick Ass comic, but loved the movie. That might be because of Matthew Vaughan.

 

And Boltie isn't dead. The Crimson Bolt took her to the Lazarus Pits. That is how the movie really ended.

Kick Ass is indeed more tonally consistent (or at least blended together much more smoothly).  However, there are a lot of different things I didn't like about Kick Ass.  Firstly, I didn't enjoy the awkward teenager stuff or much of the humor.  In fact, aside from Big Daddy, I didn't really like most of the characters.  Additionally, while the tone of the movie never gets super serious or as disturbing as something like Super, I did find the clash between the humor and the murders (especially by an eleven year old girl) to be a bit weird.  Part of what I like about Super is that the tone change reflects the fact that hey, being a vigilante super hero would actually result in some messed up stuff happening.  Kick Ass touches on this too, but I think the juxtaposition in Super actually hammers that point home better despite the problems that it causes for the overall consistency of the movie as a whole.

I prefer the Kick-Ass comic to the movie. The second series kind of ruined things for me, though. Which I kind of expected since that seems to be most Millar things for me. My biggest problems with the Kick-Ass movie is that he gets the girl and he doesn't walk in on his dad fucking that one chick. I also much preferred the humor in Kick-Ass to the humor in Super. I guess that all stems from the fact that I don't really like Ellen Page all that much, though. Her legs are creepy.

I'm enjoying it so far. I think I'm about to finish the first Act. Feels like I'm doing more button mashing than playing, though. The game really could have used a few more tutorial or practice stages, instead of one brief tutorial and then just throwing you into the middle of 20 enemies.

I remember the tutorial being pretty thorough. Don't forget to chuck cigarettes at the enemies to prove how badass you are
