Finished my run through Game of Thrones so I can stop spamming the board with that... :P

Getting close to 60 in Marvel Heroes!

GoT: Next season is supposed to be a huge departure from the books, and they're bringing on another director from Breaking Bad.

MH: Ugh. You actually play that? It felt like such a massive waste of time for so many reasons. Has it changed much since launch?

I am really liking it.. I was one of the "founders" (people dumb enough to pre-order F2P games?) and thought the game was ok at launch, but not good/great.. They have added a ton as far as what heroes do, and they have added a ton of heroes in general too. If I remember correctly heroes used to top out at level 30, now they top out at level 60, so they completely rebalanced pretty much every character... A handful of character are left to re-balance.. I think like 5-10 or so.

I've been liking it well enough to buy a $15 costume for Loki over the weekend. -___-

I just can't get over the fact that you play as existing characters. Allowing you to use existing powers to create your own hero (like in DCUO) would have been so much cooler. Then the existing heroes could have been used as supporting characters in a more interesting story. There's only room for one Deadpool, for crying out loud. ...and no comment on your purchase. lol

Yeah, I dunno what happened.. I lost all control and bought 20 dollars of Marvel Heroes points for a Lady Loki costume and having Spider-Man as a toggelable AI partner... THEN, I spent two dollars on Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff for the character Upsidedownface Tucker..

f2p only

Don't worry, bro. I've done stuff just as crazy. Freakin' free2play...

^ Sounds good. I bought the GOTY version just to play those, even though I didn't care much for the main campaign.

@Terrencec06 Just played the first stage of Shovel Knight. It's good! It's like an old-school Nintendo game with responsive controls and achievements. There's a world map and villages w/ NPCs to talk to - "Eat turkeys and apples to refill your health. I just found that out so I'm telling everybody." lol. It was kinda tough at first, but not too bad. There are checkpoints throughout the level, and if you die, the gold you lose can be regained by collecting the flying pouches you drop upon death a la Dark Souls. The story seems interesting too, even though it's told in a simplistic way. I was skeptical about Shovel Knight, since this isn't my kind of game (and Duck Tales HD ruined my childhood), but I dig it.

happy fourth amigos

@MrSelf-Destruct When you brought it up I only remembered the Hound talking about chickens, I didn't remember the fight and conclusion in that scene. What a good one.

Yeah, man. The conclusion is why I like it so much. They both came out of there with exactly what they wanted going in - and then some.

And happy fourth! BOOM!

So any of you pc guys play Shovel Knight yet?

I'll go ahead and grab it. Won't be able to play til tomorrow, though. I'll let you know what it's like, but I hear great things.

can't even deal with this giant bomb drama -____-

problem shitlord?

the whole thing was just so dumb. I agree, diversity would be fantastic at giant bomb, and it will certainly happen, but there could not possibly be a better fit for anyone anywhere than dan ryckert at giant bomb. though this should worry me as someone who doesn't care at all about wrestling.. maddy myers (and obviously many many others) would be great, but dan is a perfect fit.

I just read into that, and I don't understand why it's being given so much attention. She doesn't even have a leg to stand on. Anything that has to do with feminism makes me cringe. It's pretty bad when you have people who need to assert themselves as humanist instead of feminist just so they're taking seriously.

A very dumb response that she either misintrepreted or was just tired of all the shit she was getting... I've seen other people reacting to that like the dude meant there are no qualified female applicants, which, of course there are plenty, Dan Ryckert was just the most qualified for Giant Bomb by far... The one thing that actually made me mad was Leigh Alexander.. She tweeted something to the effect of "Time to go back to work, anything I write is far superior to anything ever written by the giant bomb staff".. I like Leigh but she was way out of line there.

lol, leigh was probably just mad that they never invited her back to a live show after she got drunk on an e3 stream and talked about how she thought nazi uniforms were hot.

She sounds like a laugh riot. Seriously, people should just not tweet things when they are upset. Does it ever go well for anyone?

Also, not to make the chick in the photo look any dumber, be she admitted that she never even applied for the position. She's just your typical misandrist, blaming men for her lack of accomplishment. There's nothing worse than an adult who cannot hold themselves accountable.

Honestly, that tweet just makes her look dumb and immature - not a person I'd want running my shit. And i just love the dude's logic at the bottom: "You suggest this man was most qualified, therefore you think all women are not qualified." Try again, you chubby dick.
