  1. It won't be covered until Issue 9. Gotham and Gotham Girl are fine, I think it'll be worth it once King kicks in with whatever their connection to Strange is.
  2. It's soooo fucking good. Like not even in a homage way, it's an awesome original series on the whole. Love it so much.
  3. Lawrence of Arabia and 2001. I keep missing my chances to see them on a cinema screen and don't really want to settle for a 32inch TV.
  4. Not really. Play of the Game is pretty messed up at the moment too, there's characters that can get an insanely easy play of the game (Torbjorn turret, Bastion, Junkrat ult), an easy but kind of deserved Play of the Game (Mercy res x4), then there's the balanced POTG's and a few characters that are basically destined to not get one (Symettra, Zenyatta). Overwatch tries to be more about rewarding working together than doing well alone, it's why you can't see your team mates kills and deaths. POTG is a really cool system, it's just a shame some characters that can be crucial for the overall win but won't ever get see a POTG based on how they support the team. (Good example, Zarya's ult can set up a team kill if you used correctly, but it'll never be the Zarya that gets the kill credit, that'll go to the Hanzo that ults based off the Zarya ult).
  5. 1. Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) 2. Batman 3. Batwoman 4. Dr. Doom 5. Thor (Jane Foster) 6. Nova (Richard Rider) 7. Agent Venom 8. Nightwing 9. Reed Richards 10. Wolverine
  6. Gonna go ahead and just say that Spider-Gwen, Silk and Spider-Women are all totally different characters and heroes and outside of the fact they've got Spider based powers (which at this point is as common a trope as super strength in Marvel) and they're all pretty awesome and different. Spider-Gwen also exists in a different reality. I feel like people are focusing way too much on the big titles and bitching about them, rather than supporting the titles are actually doing well and are well written. Sure, Bendisverse is full of stupid bullshit, but of course it is. It's Bendis. If you're going to complain about Marvel doing nothing interesting, I don't think it's fair to ignore stuff like The Ultimates, New Avengers (pretty much anything Al Ewing is involved in basically), Moon Knight (Jeff Lemire), Black Panther, Dr Strange (Jason Aaron again), Karnak (Warren Ellis), Mighty Thor, Ms. Marvel, Old Man Logan (Jeff Lemire), Power Man and Iron Fist, Punisher, Scarlet Witch, Silk, Spider-Gwen, Squadron Supreme, Venom: Space Knight, Vision (Tom King!). There's tons of great comics coming out of Marvel right now. And people complain about Old Man Logan, Mighty Thor and All-New Wolverine on the basis of them just being gender swaps, but the stories they're telling are awesome. There's a lot more happening in Marvel right now than the big names and even some of those big names are pretty good. Just need to know what to read rather than going for the big heroes, because they're usually written to please everyone and then they please no one. (All-New Avengers, Iron Man, Amazing Spider-Man come to mind). Though DC is killing Marvel with Rebirth and it's been totally earned. Batman, Superman, Detective Comics, Titans, Wonder Woman to name a few are killing it both critically and in sales.
  7. It feels like one too many at this point, but I actually love Jason Aaron's Thor and Taylor's Wolverine... But then this is Bendis and Iron Man is a pretty boring hero itself, it's Tony Stark that makes the character interesting. There's a reason no one in the history of ever has really given enough of a shit about Rhodey to warrant a War Machine run. He's had like one run that made 20 something issues? Also do we really need this story of young genius inherits main hero title when it's already being done in Totally Awesome Hulk? I dropped Bendis' Iron Man already, so I don't think I'll bother with this.
  8. Best Magneto run is far and away the one from Marvel NOW. If you liked the start of First Class with Magneto hunting down Nazi's, it's like a more extreme version of that.
  9. I kind of doubt we'd see it, if they go film with Ghost Rider it'd be a bigger name, if they go Netflix it'd be a less well known one. Though I guess they did cast Shane...
  10. Overwatch needs better matchmaking. Me and two friends play and get matched up constantly against full teams of 6 who are all together and do nothing but play this game apparently. I don't understand why it's not done more like CoD or something, where the level dictates who you're against. I've faced way too many Level 50's for a Level 20.
  11. They are. Remasters for the most part aren't taking any resource away from new IP. They're usually ported by studios that specialize in things like this rather than the main studios behind the original. FFX HD for example was ported by Virtuous, outside of branding it wasn't much to do with Square-Enix and didn't take anything away from their current projects. The whole reason Remasters are getting popular is because they're cheap to do, don't take up any of the main studios resources and sell pretty well. There's not even really that many of them, it just seems like it because they're big titles coming back and thus get a lot of press. And I'd argue some of them are pretty good things - playing FFX on a PS2 nowadays made it look like a pile of trash. Last of Us on PS3 was so, so, so much better running above 20 fps and gave people that didn't pick it up on PS3 a chance to play that game. Same with the Uncharted HD Remaster. Sure, there's one of two we could live without - I doubt many were desperate for Devil May Cry 4 HD or Killzone HD, but it's not like their existence hurts anyone. Even Skyrim remastered really isn't that big a deal. Personally, if I play Skyrim again it'll be on PC, modded to shit. But I play games on a PC and have one that can do that. This new version will apparently look better, run better (lol bethesda) and have mod support on consoles. That's probably a pretty big deal if you don't have the tech to run it well on a PC, or if you traded in your PS3 and can't play that game any more.
  12. I'm surprised you've heard nothing but good reviews when this is the season that's left most people writing off the show entirely. Season 2 is pretty awesome though.
  13. The reaction to the Cap news is hilarious. This happens literally every time, fan outrage over something that will be a footnote in the history of the character in a few years. Superior Spider-Man had the same reaction and ended up being one of the best Spider-Man runs ever. You don't have to read it if you don't like the story - we'll get All-Brand-New All-Totally-Different Marvel 2k16 Ultimate Edition in like 6 months or something that'll put the status quo back as usual. And of course Marvel are going to say IT'S NOT A TRICK, THIS IS REAL. They're not going to come out and say "It's cool guys, it's just a trick, we'll be back to normal after issue 6." Man I wish the internet had been around like this back in the 90's, when fucking everyone was a clone of Mister Sinister every other day and pouches ruled the world. Comics have always done stupid stuff and we always end up back in the same spot eventually.
  14. Been playing through Dark Souls 3 recently as my first Souls game (if you don't count Bloodborne). Nameless King is kind of a dick for having two phases, the first of which does an awful job of keeping the boss in view. I think I can take him though, his second phase seems like a scarier hunter fight from Bloodborne, which I'm all about.
  15. Nope, I meant Marvel NOW. There's complete runs of the Marvel NOW stuff, I don't think jumping into current comics (all-new all-different) with only 1 or 2 issues is worth it until you're already into comics. That's why I listed all the good Marvel NOW runs! And I don't think that's true of all of Ultimate Marvel, there's plenty of great runs in there, same as 616 Marvel. Ultimate Spider-Man is arguably the best run of a Spider-Man comic in the modern era. Ultimate Fantastic Four is also one of the more interesting Fantastic Four collections for the places it takes the characters in the end. And I think when they did their first soft reboot or Ultimate Marvel with Ultimate Comics, some of the Ultimates and Ultimate Avengers comics were great. Freakin' Hickman had a run of Ultimates that was so good, it's just a shame it only lasted about 10 issues. I also thought Ultimate X-Men was fun enough for the most part. You can't tar it all with the same brush any more than you can tar all of 616 with the same. There's good and bad in both, I'd even argue there's more bad in 616 by virtue of it existing way longer. Ultimate Marvel's shitty runs are just more noticeable because of the smaller lifespan and the "If you're dead, you're dead" rule. I mean ultimately, Ultimate Marvel gave us The Maker, so it was totally worth it for that if nothing else.
