Decided to finish up the last few episodes of S1 while studying today and the situation involving Laurel's dad and the machine at the end just annoys the crap out if me.
Why don't these people ever shoot the damn things? :lol:
Seriously, it's a fricking computer. A few bullet holes and that th...

I was taking a break the other day and I decided to throw Dishonored in my Xbox again. I'm trying to get through the hardest difficulty without killing anyone or being detected. Not easy.
That aside, I've played this game through 3x already, know the story, but for some reason, the first 10 min...

Ok, so the plan is to pick a horrible movie each week and then watch it, discuss it, and shite all over it.
Everyone is welcome to join.
It will occur every Thusday evening.
As for picking the movie, people can throw out movies and we'll just pick from there. Vote will be held tomorrow.

He should've won in the end. It's BS that he gets killed.
They try to make the lawyer seem like the hero, but he is a massive douche.

| Movie/TV Board|| The Adventures of Pluto Nash watch/comment party UPDATE: BAD IDEA - Scruffy on 6/29/14 at 6:27 pm|
After someone posted the link to the How did this get made? podcast, I listened to a shitload of them on the 7.5 hr drives I had to and from Gulf Shores. One thing I learned is that I have to watch The Adventures of Pluto Nash and I think tonight is a good night for it.
They said not to, but I t...

I have a little vacation after finishing 3rd year and I'm looking to pick up a new game. I recently played Alice: Return to Madness. Fun game, although a bit repetitive.
Looking for unknown/underrated games. Thanks....

I was scrolling through Al Jazeera and came upon this article commenting on the Detroit situation. Read and let me know what you think.

| O-T Lounge|| Is there a hierarchy to the admins? - Scruffy on 6/21/14 at 6:31 pm|
Scruffy gets that Chicken and Circus Child are essentially the Holy Trinity, but how are the other admins ranked?
Ice Cold seems like the type to steal power and wouldn't stand for being ranked beneath anyone but the gods.
Rummy seems like a pushover.
Scruffy doesn't really know much a...

| Gaming Board|| Anyone ever play the Drakengard series? - Scruffy on 6/13/14 at 10:08 am|
I was floating around Amazon and I saw Drakengard 3 for PS3 was released recently. It looked like a decent hack n' slash and had 4 stars. Anyone check it out?
Also, would anyone recommend playing Drakengard 1 and 2?
| Movie/TV Board|| X 2: X-Men United - Scruffy on 6/3/14 at 1:19 pm|
What a great comic movie.
The ending with Jean saving them by becoming the Phoenix is such a great scene.

| Gaming Board|| Who downloaded Transistor? - Scruffy on 5/23/14 at 6:52 am|
Picked it up last night, and it's a pretty uniquely fun game. Great soundtrack and visuals. The music is definitely one of the selling points of the game. The gameplay has been pretty fun so far and I like the story.
After Child of Light and Transistor, I'm really liking where these smaller ...

So, this is a fairly small genre, but one of the more rigorous and cool film techniques.
What's your favorite or which do you think is the most well done?
I gotta say, I think Coraline is the most well done and probably the most rewatchable.
I haven't been motivated to rewatch Fantastic M...

I am severely disappointed in myself. This movie is great. Bill Murray at his best.
I deserve to be chastised for having not seen this up until now.
Scruffy you are a failure....

How can y'all not drive?
Seriously, y'all make us look like a bunch of Mario Andrettis.
Y'all either drive too damn slow or you can't handle the truck you bought because it was the "Texan" thing to do.
You are pissing Scruffy off....

I finally got the chance to see it in theaters today.
It was good, but it wasn't his best works. I think he does best with the fantasy element. This lacked that.
The story was interesting, touching and well done, I just wanted more.
Overall, I'd give it a 8/10. Great visuals as alw...

What the hell was Team Ninja thinking?

He starts off talking about how Obama's military budget is destroying balance created worldwide and that we shouldn't have enacted those cuts.

So, I ended up watching this movie yesterday and it was a very suspenseful movie. I really enjoyed it, and I'm guessing it was a pretty good representation of space travel.
The only complaint that I had was the ending. The movie would've been so much better if they never would've shown the cr...

Halo Wars (horrible idea putting RTS on console)
What games have I missed?...

Who would fit the roles the best?
Remember that the source material demands the best, so only A listers/Oscar level actors are worthy.
