    So this Borderlands 1 CBUB shoot fest isn't going to happen?
  2. You guys were all cool in my book. Even that one guy.
  3. It brings back wonderful memories.
  4. Most memorable moment for me was when I was debating whatshisface in that Dragon Ball thread, and he proved that light has 0 speed because he showed me a picture of a light bulb. I remember reading that post and just sort of surfing the waves of idiocy that were emanating from it.
  5. Could I mod over the Plebiscite again? I like modding over the woman pics..... uh and all the other random stuff.
  6. I think they were reversed, since Calabries' post was on July 16th. Also, while I can ban people I don't think I can ban them for amazingly trivial offenses. Yet.

    Hey, you guys playing Borderlands 1 on PC? Because if so I'll tag along if anyone wants to co-op.

    As long as Tali makes a cameo I'm fine with whatever they put on the screen.

    Zora Fair-Child, the accent kills me. Same for Tali'Zorah nar Rayya. Wish I knew what type of accent it is.

    Video game character crushes are fun. Been playing Skyrim recently again since I bought the Dragonborn and Dawnguard expansions (already had Heartfire). Beat the Dawnguard expansion and wished that Serana was a marriable NPC. No dice. Well, I went and downloaded a few mods that I had to uninstall to make sure my game wouldn't crash due to the new DLCs and decided to pick up the Interesting NPC mod (the one that adds around a 100 new NPCs, fully voiced by modders, along with several NPC questlines). And Jesus Christ, Zora Fair-Child and Isobel. I love those two chars. Can't marry them both, so now I've got two save files where I married each of them. This is rock bottom people.
  12. Calabries' post was it's own thread over in Fan Discussion. So it was in the wrong section of the boards and it was pretty lame as it's own thread anyways, so I tossed it in here.

    I loved the Lone Ranger.
  14. See the thing is that going by this "omeone shoots a bullet, that person dodges it or deflects. They are a bullet dodger." then regular humans are bullet dodgers. And a bullet timer would probably be someone who can react to bullets specifically, not someone who jumps out of the way of someone raising a gun in his direction and therefore avoiding the hail of bullets, but someone who has reflexes on such a level that the entire world is in slow motion, they can see the bullets in slow motion and can react accordingly. Though I admit, by that definition not alot of heroes are bullet timers, since they can still be hit by fists-something that would be amazingly unlikely if you've got the reflexes to see the world in such slow mo that you can see a bullet spin as it heads towards you. EDIT: BTW, it'd be kinda cool to consider the secondary effects implied in being able to, say, sit in a chair and see a bullet head toward you and then suddenly decide "Nah!" and swat it out of the air. I mean, your hands must be crazy fast to be able to move that distance in the span of what, a few milliseconds? And your body itself should be tough enough to handle the sudden stresses of accelerating your hand to ridiculous levels to knock bullets out of the air. Or think of that one scene from Cowboy Beebop, where some guy hopped up on Red Eye (which gives you insane reflexes) moves his head out of the path of a bullet after watching it come at him for a while. Ok, so he's got the reflexes to do that, that's fine... but his neck must also be sturdy enough to not immediately snap as his head accelerates to insane speeds to move his entire head out of the way, his brain must be used to sudden high G maneuvers, his muscles themselves would have to be insanely strong too. Imagine, for another example, two punching bags. Next to you your buddy fires a pistol into one of the punching bags, while you-Mr. Bullet Timer-throws a punch at the other bag. You stand there as the bullet gets halfway between your buddy and the bag, a distance of 1 meter... you are bored as you watch it slowly get to its target and decide you'll punch your target 4 times before the bullet hits its target. Your hand is moving faster that that bullet and has more mass behind it than a simple bullet, speaking purely in terms of energy you've got more energy in a single punch than in a pistol round. Of course, this is all on the assumption that you see the world in slow mo while still having "normal" speeds yourself. Like Lara Croft at the end of her first movie where she does something something and slows down time around her while still being able to move about in a normal manner. She uses this chance to redirect a knife in midair to kill the movie villain with his own thrown knife... at that point she probably could have just throw a punch at him that would have completely caved in the badguy's face. Though it would have probably also shattered her arm since she's still a normal squishy human."

    In the movie you mean, or is this comic version? (If comics, wrong thread ) But I don't get where you think he has no morals.

    Except it's pretty hard (see impossible) to evacuate a town right when you discover that the enemy combatants are already in that town. Also, given modern targeting they were pretty confident that their attack runs on the Kryptonians wouldn't inflict civilian causalities (which they didn't). By the way, an evacuation would have huddled together all the people while they used the main roads to escape the town... which would have been amazing targets for the Kryptonians. They also didn't make anything worse in the fight between Superman and the two Kryptonian's, if anything (seriously) they provided meat shields while he caught up his strength again. And yes, Superman and Lois came up with the plan, after a computer program told them exactly what to do. However, it was the scientist who figured out how to arm the Phantom Drive and the military that sent forces to make sure the bomb would reach it's target.

    Maybe they thought "Maybe I'll get lucky and hit her face with my bullets and kill her and stop her from completely destroying this town and killing everyone in it" and thought that was a better alternative to "Let's not do anything and let her completely wreck this town and kill everyone in it".

    BTW, does anyone here play Blacklight Retribution? It's an online shooter game similar to Call of Duty and the like, but set in the future, with cool weapon customization (you can change the body armor, leg armor, helmets, weapons and backpack loadouts of your soldiers along with different muzzles, barrels, receivers, stocks, grips, magazines, sights and cammo on your guns) and a cool "Everyone can see everyone on the map when you activate your helmet" function that keeps people from camping. It's also free.

    None of the parts you don't like are plot holes. It's not like he "let" his father die in the sense that he could have stopped it and just didn't want to, he could have stopped it but knew that his father's dying wish was "Don't come over here and save me, we both know you could, but I am not letting you make that choice." Yeah what? Why would you be "tired" of the military showing up to fight alien invaders or super villains in superhero movies? Here's a thought, do you get tired of cops showing up to fight the robbers in crime movies? Or tired of the US Army showing up to fight off the Martians in War of the Worlds? At this point in the movie the US Army knew that there were aliens (everyone did), they also knew they were going to show up in this particular town after they'd started causing shit... so how is the Army showing up to combat alien threats a tired idea? How was the army "idiotic" as they went up against the Kryptonians? They had no clue what their capabilities where, had no clue that *vulgarity*ing A-10 missiles straight to their face would be useless. Would you rather the Earth governments have done nothing at all instead? Pretend that happened. That no one except Superman was doing jack shit to stop the Kryptonians... you'd be here complaining that the movie was stupid because the US Army/Air Force/Navy wasn't trying to stop the obvious aliens trying to destroy mankind. It also made thematic sense to have Superman fight alongside the Army, he's showing Earth that he's there to defend them not destroy them like the other Kryptonians, just like when he let them handcuff him and escort him through the military base. The entire idea was that "Hey, these guys are in over their head, but they are attempting to defend their homes and families as best as they can and I am going to help them." In fact, it was an interesting inversion on the idea of a bumbling idiotic gun-ho military (an inversion which is appearing more often in movies) in that the military actually helped quite alot in the entire movie. It was they who provided the mind muscle to rig up the phantom drive, they who led Superman to the World Engine on the other side of the world, they who lost alot of people leading the assault on the ship-thing in Metropolis (in fact, I think they lost their entire force in that battle) and who sacrificed themselves to stop the terraforming of Earth. If the military was anything in the movie, it sure wasn't "idiotic". I agree. In fact, I like every other female actress in this movie over Lois Lane. Antje Traue as Faora was hot, Christina Wren as Major Carrie Farris was pretty/cute, Rebecca Buller as Jenny was pretty, Carmen Lavign as the bar waitress was also pretty. I mean shit, I like secondary female characters with 4 lines over Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
  20. Well, this is supposed to be the illogical thread, so people are asking for things that would never be in a SSB game. Though I suppose as an original character you could have Shmario, who is red and yellow and amazingly smarmy.

    But this movie wasn't about that version of Superman (or as force_echo pointed out a while ago, that always good version doesn't even seem to exist in the comics), it was about a different version of Superman who is still unsure of himself and not quite there yet. I mean for *vulgarity*s sake, he trashes a guy's truck at one point because he pissed him off.
  22. Maria looked at Kendra and nodded, "It's fine," she said, hoping that Pro was making her look as calm as she didn't feel, "Not everyone can throw punches." She was about to say something else when a voice she didn't recognize started to emanate from her body. "Everyone we have an EVAC point set. Follow the crowd and there is a monorail you will be able to take out of the building. Any alternate exits will be spread around, move it people!" "I picked this up just a few seconds ago, but was working to remove the background noises to clear up the message." Pro's voice continued, "It seems as if someone in charge has begun an evacuation plan." He turned his and Maria's body to face the medical staff, "Are you aware of any evacuation plans in case of an emergency?" he queried.
