Let me know what you think about the movie. I want to know if I'm the only person who was super okay with it (again, not reading the comics probably has something to do with it). I'll withhold all comments and stuff til then. :) I do agree, though with low validity, that I can't imagine Iron Man without Robert Downey Jr. In fact, when the inevitable reboot comes along decades later, I feel like I'm gonna be disappointed.
Also, looking back, I think I understand now what you meant by being upset with Disney. It has to do with their decisions about Star Wars, right? I've only just found out about them cancelling Clone Wars and shutting down LucasArts for example. I'm not exactly on the ball. D: Then again, you could've been talking about the animation side, heh, I dunno. Sounds like typical Disney, except this time we can't blame Eisner for it. :\
Finally, I ended up getting my Mega Man/Sonic comic (didn't know it was double sided), and the other 4 were all comics compilations targeted to kids. For example, the Kaboom comics with the Adventure Time, Regular Show and Peanuts material. Another one was really cute, it had Owly among others, Owly always makes me sad for some reason. :(
The neatest revelation is that the Viz Kids collection had finally translated some of the Pokemon 4Koma. I'm ambivalent,though, because while I'm happy this is finally happening... it's the wrong guy. *headdesk* Arararghhh it's just so flat! What's worse is that I was right and they still aren't that amusing even in English. *rolls over* _-_
Oh well, I'll take what I can get. If it gets more people into Pokemon 4 Koma and the perspective of the creatures, that's not a bad thing.
No and yes! I'm going to see Iron Man this Sunday. Gettin' the whole crew together to see it. :3 It's funny you mention that too, cause I'm actually a big fan of the IM movies over the comic. Like, the comic touches on some really great themes.. but Robert Downey Jr. *is* actually a recovering addict, so I think he lends a lot to the character that the comic Tony Stark just doesn't capture in it's entirety. Weird, right? :p
And I am hitting the shop so hard today. There's a lot of really great Walking Dead stuff dropping, so I'm all up in that. And actually (I'll have to look it up, because I don't remember what it's called) but I recently picked up a book of super old-school Japanese comics (like... the kind that includes a 21st century disclaimer because they're *that* old and super racist) but it's real early Japanese/Western style art. I think you'd like it a lot (not the racism, but you know what I mean :p)
1. I just saw Iron Man 3 last night with my friends. I can't remember any of it right now (not that it was unmemorable, I just don't have the best recollection abilities), but overall I liked it. Funny enough, everyone else in the car had some issues, but then again, everyone else reads the comics. Which leads me to...
2. It's free comic book day, which you probably already know. Some of us may go to the local comic shop (I know at least one of my friends is), but I'm about to head off, because I gotta get me some books. By which I mean Mega Man if they have it, but I'll see what else they're handing out.
Just a couple of days ago we've started conceptualizing two games. One of them could probably be completed in a weekend or two, which I'm probably going to work on. I tend to stick to making simple, low scope games.
How do you read orange text against a translucent yellow with green and blue flora in the background?
Glad you're actually getting somewhere with the game dev stuff though! It must be nice to actually do some work of substance. Not that theorizing doesn't have its own rewards.. but it sounds like you're having a good time working towards a more palpable, obtainable goal.
Thanks. :3 Sorry I haven't been very active much, but that's the nature of a difficult arse school.
Well, TBH I was active, but only participating in small discussions here and there and saying that Disney would do barrel rolls if he realized how cheap his animation studios were getting. But on the plus side, we're really cranking up the actual game dev stuff here. So now I'm actually "doing" as opposed to just learning theory. That and thesis drama. You want to make a person feel miserable...
I need to go through more galleries, but maybe over the weekend or something.
Promotion? Like what, a mod or something? C'mon, I'm not psychic. :P But otherwise, congrats on the bump up or somethin', I guess.
I apologize if I don't seem very excited. :( I am happy for you, and I'm trying to separate myself out of it, but it's hard for me to think that being a mod is a good thing... again. I didn't even like being the administrator for forums and oekakies I've owned in the past. I guess some people enjoy it well enough, though. That ultimately lies in your hands. Do what you can with what you've got.
Actually, I feel like Benson put it best, albeit about pies... it's been dubbed over, but the script is the exact same.
