Fan-made Final Fight movie trailer is pretty good, actually {Joystiq}

Feb 3rd 2010 2:49AM I would have enjoyed that if it weren't for the smoke detector constantly beeping. I really liked the introduction of Haggar.

Activision: Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC on PSN was a 'limited time offer' {Joystiq}

Jan 7th 2010 1:43AM The movie game rights may be seperate from the solely comic based rights. For example, Sega has the rights to make the Iron Man, Thor and Captain America games based off the movies dispite Activision having the exclusive rights on the Marvel comic universe characters. Again, I'm not certain.

Activision: Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC on PSN was a 'limited time offer' {Joystiq}

Jan 6th 2010 11:30PM Just did a little quick digging and found an IGN article from August 2009 asking if, due to the Disney/Marvel merger, Activision would lose the Marvel license prematurely. The original license was through 2017, however, as we've seen in recent years the laws around licensing is fairly vague. It is very possible that Disney pulled back it's Marvel Video Game license now that the Marvel deal is complete. Any ideas, Joystick staff?

Jan 6th 2010 11:22PM My best guess is that Activision lost the Marvel license at the end of 2009. That's the only logical explaination on why they would pull DLC since once it's made and it's up it can only make you money.

Breakfast Topic: Death Knights and you {WoW}

Dec 30th 2008 8:37AM I started a DK day one after 30 minutes in Northrend on my then main Druid. I haven't looked back since.

My new main is a lvl 80 Unholy Orc DK and I couldn't be happier. I consistantly pull first or second DPS in heroics and I never pull aggro off the main tank unless asked to off tank a mob.

I've now geared up with most heroic equip I need for running Naxx so it's just waiting for the rest of my guild to catch up now. I just purchased my epic flying speed last night. On top of that I won the Bronze Drake from the timed Heroic CoT Strat run. I've maxxed out my mining and engineering.

Oh, I also grabbed the title "the Explorer" in my spare time.

In short, I love being a DK and when you're good at your class people notice quick and will respect you.

Joyswag regift giveaway: You're in the Movies (with bonus Popcorn Maker) {Joystiq}

Dec 30th 2008 12:09AM Gift: A dinner date with Jeff Gertsmann.

Game: Kane & Lynch.

Lichborne: Things to do in Azeroth when you're dead and level 80 {WoW}

Dec 29th 2008 1:12PM I've got to disagree about the pike being better.

I have the Sword with a +16 str gem.

So, I have equal Str, less stam (as DPS I could care less), and 81 crit.

I'll take the extra 10 crit any day over some Stam for my Unholy DPS spec.

Breakfast Topic: Patch 3.0.8 excitement {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2008 10:06AM Excited:
-Changes to DK Glyphs
-Buff to Frost Presence
-Rep for Sons way easier

-Nerf of Bone Shield

Everything else in the patch looks pretty good to me.

Ask WoW Insider: The new look of Northrend {WoW}

Dec 15th 2008 6:45PM I really like the looks of the equipment from Northrend but the lack of variation is disappointing.

I'm not looking for lots of colors... just more models. It feels like they took the lazy way out by just recoloring every model about 20 times.

Relics of Ulduar and Iron Boot Flask changed in patch 3.0.8 {WoW}

Dec 15th 2008 3:24PM All good points. I bought the flask as soon as it was available to me and thought it was a bargan. Now I know just how much of a bargan it was.

From daily question I already have well over 100 relics and cannot wait to turn them in for Sons rep. I just hit Honored with them yesterday so I have a ton of rep to grind with them still.
