I’ll say this much: as a big lore/story nerd for just about anything I play, rampaging throughout Orgrimmar as a draenei of any class has to be extremely cathartic on several levels.
Just running in there to kill everyone and wreck their shit with the full support of the entire world. “It’s your turn now, fuckers!!”
Hey folks. I’m the author of the official strategy guide for Disgaea D2.
If you bought the book, thank you. You may have had a problem redeeming the code for Raspberyl, however, and here’s official word on that:
"The Prinnies at NIS America sincerely apologize that the Raspberyl DLC is not yet live on PSN. The code you received is still valid and Sony has confirmed that the DLC will be activated and redeemable by no later than Wednesday, October 16th. Thank you for your patience while we get Raspberyl ready for her debut in Disgaea D2!”
Apologies for the wait, but you’ll be able to play with Raspberyl by the middle of next week. She’s available in the Post-Game.
I started watching “RWBY” because it’s free and because Monty Oum’s a hell of a fight choreographer, but the further it gets into this high-school drama bullshit with Jeune, the less interested I get.
The stuff with Weiss was obnoxious enough, but at least she saw reason within the course of an episode, which makes the whole thing a good moment for all involved:
"I’m rich as hell! That translates to respect and admiration, right?""Nnnnnnnnope."
"…fuck. All right, who wants coffee?"
I also have a hard time believing that anyone who was capable of getting into the apparently-prestigious Academy in the first place would A) be going out of his way to make as many enemies as possible and B) be picking on other kids when every single student in the building is a trained killer. Cardin is a friendly-fire incident waiting to happen and you’d expect one of the instructors to mention that. I could see students being hyper-competitive to each other to the point where they’re assholes, but actual physical bullying? How dumb is this kid?
Also, if there’s a season 2 in the wings, I’d be happy to wait longer between episodes if it meant the episodes were longer and better-paced. Just throwing it out there.
I’m starting to get the notion that when Skye says “Rising Tide,” what she means is “Global Frequency.”
Internet, I require an animated .gif of Ashly Burch doing her Bobby Kotick impression, ideally with Impact-font “Because… SHOCKING” written across the bottom.
I figure this .gif will have countless uses both professionally and around the home.
Do it for the children.
I’d need to see more world-building, but so far, “RWBY” would be a pretty good setting for a tabletop RPG. It’d obviously need to use one of the less “realistic” rule sets, one that rewards you for doing goofy-albeit-cinematic shit every ten seconds, but it’s got all the ingredients.
The point’s been made that right now, Marvel’s only “better” than DC in certain areas because DC is such a clusterfuck at the moment and Marvel still has room to improve.
If somebody at Marvel really wants to bump up their troll game after this week, the time is right. Unofficial Lesbian Month/Year should be go right about now.
Hand somebody, maybe Marjorie Liu since Astonishing is ending anyway, a book and just leave it alone for two years. Let’s say, just for chuckles, it’s a book about a young non-powered woman stepping up to fill the superhero void in San Francisco that was left when Utopia fell apart, supported by her ex-military dad and her network of police contacts, including her ex who’s risen to the level of detective. And let’s say the young woman’s queer. And she’s very deliberately tapping into some other hero’s legacy because it sends a message: this is what side I’m on. Maybe she can be the 616 version of American Dream or she’s wearing Carol’s star.
And let’s also say that instead of Annabelle Riggs-style “tee hee I like girls” dancing around the subject or Karma’s unfortunate sexless limbo, this is an unapologetically out woman with a love life and goals, goals which for the most part do not intersect with that love life at all. She has lovers, on-panel; ladies kiss ladies; then she puts her goddamn super-suit on and goes to punch Batroc right square in the dadbags because she’s a superhero dammit.
Throw some support and some high-profile artists behind the book (although probably not Mike Deodato, because let’s face it, the man is the second coming of Enrique Romero and he can’t not sex things up unnecessarily) and then leave it alone to tell whatever story results, for as long as it can survive in the modern marketplace. Just let it roll and enjoy the ensuing fireworks show as Dan Didio superheats and almost combusts with rage. I guarantee you’d have women cosplaying as the character before issue #1 came out, especially if her suit had a cool Jamie McKelvie design.
I’m just saying, doing a lesbian superhero book “right” at the moment would be hilarious fun for Marvel and could actually be pretty awesome. If you also happened to use it to wrap up certain other plots while you were at it—she could date Karma, or run into Karolina and Julie—that’s just icing on the delicious troll cake.
Just saw the “Agent Carter” one-shot through thoroughly illegal means.
If the Guardians of the Galaxy can get their own movie, I remain hopeful that we could get 1950s SHIELD with Peggy Carter, Jimmy Woo, Dum Dum Dugan, Howard Stark, Venus, Namora, the original Marvel Boy, and Ken Hale.
That would rule.
