Discuss: The Ending of 'The Mist' {Cinematical}

Apr 2nd 2008 12:53PM I have to point out that it's distressing that some people complain about an "open" ending. Where is it written that everything has to have a cut-and-dry ending? Is society so short sighted that we can't leave anything to our imaginations anymore?

Really I'm not sure that the ending even fit with the characters anyways. After going though all that effort to save his son he gives up after one tank of gas? So all it takes is less than 12 hours of driving to lose faith? Or was was that supposed to be some sad commentary on how bad we are as a species at being optimistic.

Personally I loved the ending to the book, it served perfectly the sense that there might be salvation out there, but the story let you make up your own mind. I didn't really need to be force fed a "shock" ending just because someone decided that there needed to be some "moral" to the story.

Give me the open true-to-the-book ending every time.

'Dune' Remake On the Way -- Third Time's the Charm? {Cinematical}

Mar 18th 2008 3:36PM Really I've always loved the Lynch version even though it wasn't totally faithful to the books. Which in a sense is hypocritical of me as i tend to lambaste movies that don't adhere to the book it represents.

I justify this by saying that Lynch's Dune was grandfathered in as I was pretty young when it was released and I hadn't read the books yet. The Sci-Fi version was too polished for me. It was a more strict telling, but I really think that no one has captured the spirit of the books yet. It may never happen, but as long as there is money out there people will keep trying.

Personally I say just let it die. No one is ever going to remake the whole series as movies so why do just one at all?

Are hybrid tanks going to *be* left behind? {WoW}

Mar 13th 2008 5:54PM First I have to say, that is one well written and conveyed article.

I rolled my Tankadin to cover that huge tanking gap that I saw on my server. I hated sitting in LFG as DPS and waiting for a tank to show up. I figured I would make it easy on myself by starting off as 1/3rd of a core PuG team. Really i ended up loving the tanking role. I love wading into a group of mobs and holding them all in place while my DPS picks them off 1 by 1. The thrill of throwing myself into an un-winnable fight and coming out the other side with both myself and all my team members alive.

The only reward I've wanted is that /w "Hey man, just wanted to let you know that you are the best tank I've seen" I love going into a group with everyone apprehensive about your skill and in the end they want to run 4 or 5 more runs with you as they trust you implicitly.

But I am concerned about my role in end game scenarios. I worry that I'm going through all this effort to gear up and maintain a decent balance just to be shoved to the background when new content shows up. Blizzard really needs to work on Paladin itemization, I don't want huge buffs I just want the small fixes that we deserve.

Breakfast Topic: Does the RNG hate you? {WoW}

Feb 5th 2008 1:49PM Yeah it hates me, I ran Ramps nearly 25 times and never saw the breastplate for my Pally. It really hurt because people would whisper me later and say that it dropped on their run.

Yeah now I'm 70 and I still want to run ramps to get it. Just to prove that I'm not cursed.

Here are your fake (real?) patch notes {WoW}

Jan 24th 2008 1:42PM Rogue:
- Your Sap and Distract abilities no longer require targets to be out of combat. combat? Somehow I doubt that.

Although that "generate combo points on up to 3 targets" is one of the better ideas floating around. It would resolve that wasted CP issue.

Build Shop: Paladin 0/46/15 {WoW}

Jan 22nd 2008 6:10PM Guardians Favor? Seriously? And no Anticipation? Thats free defense that you don't have to find elsewhere.

Really just drop The GF & the points from Vindication and put them in Anticipation. Other than that I can't argue with your choices. As soon as my Tankadin hits 70 I plan of dropping reckoning myself and putting those points elsewhere.

My Build should look similar to this one:

DS Fanswag: End of the Year Blowout! {Joystiq Nintendo}

Dec 12th 2007 12:18PM I have the original Red "Cause Red Ones Go Faster" DS Phat.

I've had multiple opportunities to upgrade but I've become attached to this one.

You feel normal {WoW}

Nov 30th 2007 7:14PM I've been leveling my BE Prot pally pretty much since the patch hit and it's been amazing...I feel like I should be working on my main to get him raid ready but it's hard when leveling is so easy. I went from 22-39 in less than a week and I don't play nearly as much as I used to.

Are You Interested in a 50-Something Batman? Kevin Smith Is! {Cinematical}

Nov 30th 2007 5:19PM As with the poster above I'd like to see Keaton return as Batman from the Dark Knight Returns graphic novel. An older more gritty batman with a dark edge. I'd pay to see that.
