What up, everyone. It’s Mumbles. Taking over Chocolate Hammer for the day just wasn’t enough for me. I’m the Doctor Doom of nerd blogs. Actually, as a sidenote, the Fantastic Four is my favorite Marvel series. It’s evolved into a story where Reed Richards has all of the qualities to make him an excellent super villain, but it’s his family and nemesis Doom that keep him doing good. Unfortunately, the movie is a perfect example of Hollywood completely misinterpreting characters. Reed Richards isn’t a shy, bumbling nerd. He’s actually a confident prick. Is it so difficult for people to believe that nerdy guys can have a little bit of swagger because of their intelligence? Do people love Tony Stark because he’s smart or because he’s a charming rich guy in a cool suit?
Anyway, the early issues of Fantastic Four are really worth checking out if you’ve got some time on your hands. My brother says Jack Kirby shines in Thor, but his work in FF is just as impressive. If I could lend all of you my anthologies, I totally would.
Did that sound a little too off topic? You want to know why? Because we can’t stay on topic this week during Spoiler Warning. I don’t know if it’s because Ruts and Shamus haven’t played Dead Money or my own personal resentment for it being a buggy piece of crap on my PC. Or both. Whatever the case may be, we really go off the rails today and tomorrow.
Regarding today’s episode, I just want to apologize in advance. You’ll know when it happens.
Artless in Alderaan
People were so worried about the boring gameplay of The Old Republic they overlooked just how boring and amateur the art is.
Silent Hill Turbo HD II
I was trying to make fun of how Silent Hill had lost its way but I ended up making fun of fighting games. Whatever.
A horrible, railroading, stupid, contrived, and painfully ill-conceived roleplaying campaign. All in good fun.
The Loot Lottery
What makes the gameplay of Borderlands so addictive for some, and what does that have to do with slot machines?
The story of me. If you're looking for a picture of what it was like growing up in the seventies, then this is for you.
