After binging on the first season of “Arrow” on Netflix and getting a few episodes into the second, I have to ask:
How is it that snarky Mockingbird/Black Canary teamup fanfiction isn’t a thing?
I think it’s that Black Canary running around with the bo staff/escrima sticks made me think of Bobbi Morse. It’s too bad that DC/Marvel teamups aren’t a thing anymore, because Matt Fraction writing Ollie and Clint fucking up all over town while Bobbi, Kate, Dinah, and probably Barbara Gordon had to bail them out would basically be the greatest thing in the history of comic books.
You’d think that somebody at the Daily Show would have played WoW at some point or would know somebody who does.
I mean, Asif of Dun Morogh was in the pandaren starting zone and had an action bar full of priest spells. I hope Colbert seizes upon this and takes these people to task.
At least he knew enough to not be Horde scum.
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.
