That said, I'm definitely looking forward to the Hulk film. Because smashing things is both fun and useful.


Oh boy, are you in for a treat, then! Go and rent Fight Club right now! And then watch American History X. Then you'll look forward to the Hulk even more.


Oh dear. I hated both of those movies. This does not bode well for me.


I loved American History X.


Even though you didn't like said movies, would you agree that Ed Norton is a great actor?

Oh, and is anyone else having an awesome time reading the Sinestro Corps War? Now THAT's some awesome comic-ness.

Currently playing Mario Strikers: Charged and RE4. The former is great fun, but the AI is nearly impossible. The latter scares the living shit out of me.

I wish they'd hurry up and bring out Super Paper Mario in Australia (I have to wait until September).

I've also been addicted to Animal Crossing over the last few months.

And in other news I got a DS a couple of months ago. Now I've got 8 games, I think. Lemme see: New Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart DS, Big Brain Academy, More Brain Training, Animal Crossing: Wild World, Metroid Prime: Hunters, Sonic Rush and Yoshi's Island DS. I'm loving it.

I've always wondered where all the good platformers go...

The worst you can do is go and ask. I think your chances would be better with a place that still sells pre-owned oldies. We have a place called GameTraders that sell Game Boy, Saturn, Megadrive, Master System games - all sorts of hard-to-find gear.

No argument here.

Don't know if this really belongs here or not, but I hear that Joel Silver has signed on to produce a new film adaptation of He-Man & The Masters of the Universe, with a plot outline rumored to take He-Man's alter ego, Prince Adam, and make him a soldier instead of a prince. Not sure if that's a good idea or not, but even as a longtime He-Man fan, I can honestly say I don't expect to see a new film version of He-Man. I can't shake the feeling that Hollywood will either screw up along the way, leaving the film in permanent development Hell, or even worse, they'll just give us a really crappy He-Man film.

Has there been any discussion on the rumored Justice League America film that Warner Brothers supposedly greenlit a few months ago, set for a 2010 release?


I feel the same way. I think the major studios are just snapping up the rights to whatever 'hot' cartoon/comic property they can get their hands on at the moment. There's even talk of a 'Thundercats' movie. But I honestly can't see any of them working as a live-action film - not even the Justice League...

The thing is, as soon as someone's screenplay is optioned, the media go on about how this or that film is 'in development', when really, the idea for a movie has only just been hatched.

I've read OMAC, Villains United, Identity Crisis, Infinite Crisis, and now I'm reading Countdown, but the 52 TPBs aren't being published quick enough for me to catch up before I spoil 52 for myself reading Countdown! I didn't jump right into 52 because I didn't want to spoil Infinite Crisis before I read it, but I decided if I don't jump into Countdown now, I'll be playing catch up for the rest of my life! *Takes breath*

Calling all Wii gamers - Friend Codes.
Time
Hi Guys,

Mario Strikers: Charged! for the Wii will be released in Australia (the country I call my home) tomorrow (Thursday 7th June). As you may know, this is the first online game for the Wii and as such I'd like to share this experience with people I (sort of) know. All my 'real-life' friends (now that just makes me sound like a loser!) either own a 360 or don't have their Wiis hooked up to the 'net, so what better place to come to than the OT.com Off Topic Forum? So if you'd like to hit me up for a few rounds in future, please PM me your Friend Code and I'll reply with mine.

Peace Out!

IGN Star Wars movie poll.

Good for ESB at least to still reign supreme, but only 8.5% for Star Wars? I can only hope that that's because everyone who voted for ESB held Star Wars as a very close second but couldn't vote for both. But ROTJ higher than Star Wars? That's just weird. I'm more surprised by that than I am by ROTS having second place, honestly, as much as I disagree with that standing.


I would suspect you're right man, I would've given ANH my next vote, but I had to go with ESB.

The rest is divvied up by those dumb-ass kids...
