One of the guys at my gaming club has been playing in the beta. It doesn't have a warband creator yet, but the game is still a lot of fun.

Looks like this will be another title that ends up getting money many of us would have happily spent on miniatures and rules from GW.

Curiously I live in a very wet state, and am a teetotaler myself.
Oh well. Always missing out on the fun. Cool

Someone needs to be the sober driver Wink

Pretty much. Kiwis have using VPNs for some time. Earlier this year, a couple of smaller ISPs even started offering their own VPN service, complete with instructions on how to fool the sign up process (which requires a US address).

While offering the VPN is legal, the other part is highly dubious at best, and probably breaks a couple of Netflix's T&Cs. It's believed that, when it does become available here, it will only offer a fraction of the content available in the States (for rights reasons) and they'll finally crack down on the VPN viewers, forcing people to watch the local version.

In the meantime, we've just had one NZ-based alternative launch (Lightbox), with another going live 'later this year' that is basically an OnDemand version of the only current cable-like network (Sky TV). The latter comes from a company that bought up the exclusive rights in NZ to Game of Thrones, then created an all new premium channel to air it (costing $10/month on top of the existing ~$50/month subscription).

Is it any wonder so many people down here prefer to download their TV.

Rachel Maddow explains Twitter dead drop boxes

Politics aside, using generic, anonymous Twitter accounts sounds like an interesting way to bring dead drops into the 21st Century (without the need for USB sticks or micro SD cards).

I just hope it lets you save your progress this time.

The use of music by the show has been excellent so far, and I hope it continues.

People will just need to go out and get them because they will then be making more money as employees than living more comfortably on welfare (aka the taxes the rest of us have earned).

I hope those jobs aren't minimum wage, because then they'll need two or three to be able to survive.

Here's a crazy theory: Raise the minimum wage so people only need one job to stay above the poverty line. They'll earn more money, and in turn spend more money on goods, services, and the occasional luxury. This will put more money back into the economy, to the benefit of business owners.

Just a thought.

Oh, and it's not all bad. Oregon voted to legalise marijuana. Hopefully there will some strong westerlies in the near future and the second hand toke calms the rest of the country.

There are a lot of women who would also argue that Cumberbatch is hot.

As for Wonder Woman, Marvel beat DC to that announcement with two TV shows featuring female leads (Agent Carter and Jessica Jones - both of which have female Exec Producers and showrunners). Also, both shows are part of the movie continuity, unlike DC's offerings.

Is either side perfect? No?
Are people going to be upset because actor X wasn't cast as Doctor Strange? Of course.
Are a whole lot of people going to go to the cinema and seriously enjoy themselves? Absolutely.
Will this be the time that things work out and the Wonder Woman movie actually gets made? I certainly hope so (but I'm not holding my breath).

...and Constantine really doesn't fit properly into the broader DC universe.

That's not really anything new for DCU TV shows Wink

Wow, I must have missed this...

If you're on Facebook, you should Like Dean Devlin. He posts fairly regular mini production updates. I like what I'm seeing (but I'm easy to please) and the cast looks great (even if it meant Frewer couldn't an event here in NZ last weekend).

I suspect there's a lot more to the Iron Man/Hulk fight than we might suspect. Banner's in the trailer a few times, and each one is rather interesting (struggling through snow, wrapped up in the Quinjet, and a tender-looking moment with Black Widow.

Is it May yet?

It's interesting to note that, between Winter Soldier and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., they've managed to introduce many of the major players in Civil War...

(click to show/hide) it will interesting to see how close they stick to the comics. It's also another perfect opportunity to have the TV series and movie(s) work in unison again - especially with RDJ's comments about wanting to appear on the show.

Say what you like about Doctor Who, but they have excellent taste when it comes to hiring bands to perform on the show: Don't Stop Me Now - Foxes from Mummy on the Orient Express.

And here's basically the same story without the madness that comes with the Daily Mail.

It sounds like James Pethokoukis is a little bitter after Hot Pikachu spurned his advances.
