Don't know about you guys, but the Arachnid Quarter's Heroic mode was rather easy... but the Plague Quarter's Heroic mode is BRUTAL.  Nothing quite like pounding away at the Plaguebringer, only for a Plague card to wipe out your side, and flood the other side with 5/5 minions.  Tongue

A deadpool test footage link that still works as of 650pm EST Deadpool test reel

Wow. Why is that movie not made yet?

Dunno.  Ask Fox's lawyers, since they've been cracking down hard on any legitimate site they can find that's linked to the video.

Y'know, I'll admit that I am a bit afraid that the real TALOS will not look as cool as stuff I've seen in pop culture.  Turns out one of the top pop culture designers is actually helping out.]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqumgDXAnIA]Turns out one of the top pop culture designers is actually helping out.  I'm still a little leery, considering this is a real life military project, and those have such an awesome track record.  Gotta keep the hope alive, though.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Campaign trailer (with multiplayer teaser)

Quick question: does this comic inspire any nostalgia for you guys?  Man, I played that game all the time when it first came out.  First real Gameboy game for me, in fact, since my parents never got me the others before.

It's probably like ink-splotch tests, what you find in something completely random says something about you.

For me, with that video at least, the sounds are rather... fitting.  Jupiter sounds like something you'd hear in a soundtrack for a temple dedicated to the god the planet's named after, Miranda from a post-apoc movie, Neptune sounds like the large ocean it looks like, the rings of Uranus sound like a UFO from a movie that you'd name From the Rings of Uranus... Saturn and it's rings I can't really place, but IO sounds creepy as all heck.  Uranus sounds like a wind tunnel, which I'm sure will fuel all sorts of jokes.

Earth, though, now that sounds like a choir in the most classic sci-fi tradition, particularly the "Song of Earth".

On the other hand, I understand the female engineer now has two pant legs.

That, and the more you level up, the more armored your frame gets.  My Arsenal is just beastly looking right now.

Perk Points confuse me slightly.
How do I get them?
Are they shared between frames?
Did I miss a simple yet essential tooltip?

Mouse over the perks, and you'll get info on how to get them.

Y'know, one of the best parts of this stage is how fluid it currently is.  Saw Ryse: Son of Rome the other day, and while I initially tossed in the Celtic Kingdom because it was easy to say, now I really want a heavy gunmetal version of the Celts, with future-tech Romans tossed in for good measure.  Why are they here?  Who cares, it's awesome!

Anyone who wants to link up for Firefall tomorrow, PM me and we'll set up a time.  Probably should have done this weeks ago.  Tongue

Also, that game is still buggy as all heck.  Here's hoping the launch actually launches properly.

Technically about a game:

League of Legends Cinimatic: A New Dawn

Ah, sweet beautiful Ahri... I'm sorry, what were we talking about?

Bungie decided not to use John-117 immediately and proposed a new original female SPARTAN-II. After Team ninja agreed Bungie provided the modified assets from Halo 2 and then further tweaked them to ensure smooth animation, Nichole-458 was always supposed to be female and Bungie made adjustments to the MJOLNIR-VI more feminine.

Building a Spartan

Huh, didn't know about that blog.  Just knew about Chief being the original idea.

I know it's hip to dismiss anything as happenstance and cynical laziness,

Not so much trying to be hip...

...just remembering that we still have a long way to go.  So I do applaud Bungie for their contributions.

Well, the one on the left is Nichole-458 who was done by Team Ninja, whose female characters usually look more like this:

Which would impress me if it wasn't supposed to be Master Chief originally, and they decided to "make up" a character for the game at some point by giving the character a female voice.

The art's from Destiny, where I haven't seen a single instance of boob plate. Which isn't surprising considering what Nicole-458 looked like in DoA4. and then what the rest of the female SPARTAN-IIs looked like. Granted the female SPARTAN-IIs are even less feminine looking in their armor than Destiny's female Titans.

It probably helps that back in the Spartan-II days, Bungie basically didn't bother model the armor differently, used female voices, and called it progress.  Tongue

That said, they do seem to be much better about the subject than other settings.

And then there's XCOM, because I always need an excuse to bring that game up.

Check out the new X-Wing.
