  1. Battlestar Galactica & Caprica

    So, in my absence I've been watching Battlestar Galactica. I've just finished series 2 and watched the mini-film Razor. One of my favourite episodes has been "Scar".
  2. The Amazing Spider-Man

    Really loved this. Felt exactly like a Spider-Man comic. Andy G and Emma Stone were both great. Liked the fact it was Gwen Stacey rather than MJ, and I liked the police vs vigilante thing going on. Also liked how it set up the parents/Kurt Connor thing -- it actually gave him reason to be all nosy and to get bitten by the spider, rather than it just being random. Loved the humour, was loling throughout, even at bits which weren't explicitly supposed to be jokes, just because I love looking at his and Emma Stone's faces. And I liked how it felt like Spider-Man had to outwit and then use Incapacitate to deal with Lizard, rather than just having 3 damage. I preferred it to Avengers. Kinda annoying that they can't be in the same continuity. I look forward to the sequel; Spectacular Spider-Man? Astonishing Spider-Man?
  3. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    Can we just vote off The Peeps now?
  4. Iron Man 3

    I guess it's preferable to introducing Norman Osbourne and having to explain why he's not a Spider-Man villain anymore, and why someone doesn't just arrest him. Iron Patriot is a really convoluted character. Cap is so incongruous to modern warfare that it wouldn't really work. "Charge!" as a warhead comes flying his way, killing half the unit.
  5. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    Yeah, Detroit Steel. So the Russian is the killer. And the one mafia member we know which has died has been Russian (his only feature which distinguishes him from the rest of the dead list). Therefore it's a pretty safe bet the mafia is Russian characters. Roles we know: mr-paul - Iron Man chairdriver - Iron Monger Yvonne - Thunderbolt Ross Tales - Blizzard None of which are Russian. Therefore the following unclaimed people are ~90% certainly the mafia. The Peeps Cube Paj! lol Vote: The Peeps ~~ I'm guessing Whiplash, Titanium Man and Yelena Belova Black Widow.
  6. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    Who is your character?
  7. Black Panther Movie in the works?

    I hope they cast someone actually African.
  8. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    Ok, this is really problematic, Crimson Dynamo being mafia puts a flaw in my theory of non-armoured heroes being mafia. Why is Crimson Dynamo mafia when loads of other Iron Man villains aren't? Tales is Blizzard. I would have guessed that the Thunderbolts were the mafia, but clearly that's not the case since Radioactive Man came up town.
  9. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    She isn't lying about her character (I checked her last night) and her night 1 target is congruent with what happened (I tried to target DuD first night and failed). How about getting some inactive people speaking? Vote: Coolness Bears
  10. Mint 90's songs.

    Yeah, in my head Kylie Spinning Around, Britney Oops I Did It Again, Atomic Kitten Whole Again, Sugababes Overload &c &c &c are all 90s tracks, but in reality they're all early 00s. This is 1997 though, yes: I love how there never seemed to be any attempt to look glamourous in the 90s. Like, you'd never get someone wearing a crop top with a vaguely fat stomach in pop music today.
  11. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    What's the description / rationale behind your power? Vote: Yvonne to keep up the pressure for her to speak. Actually, that's her at 5 votes now. Remove vote, in case a mafia member swoops in and sees her off.
  12. Modern art you like

    Howl For Your Troubles - Christian Thompson
  13. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    Remove vote, Radiation Man is a legitimate villain. I can't see any reason he'd have particular reason to be mafia, unless the mafia is the Thunderbolts.
  14. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    I was stopped from using my power last night. Armour Wars was an arc in the Iron Man comic where all the armoured characters had a massive battle, of course loads of us are going to be Iron Man characters... I don't even see how your logic follows? We're all associated characters, therefore some of us have to be mafia? Why would I (Iron Monger) be opposite aligned to Detroit Steel and Dormammu? It's already been established that the virus has turned armoured heroes rogue so they're working with the villains. The mafia are probably unarmoured heroes like Nick Fury, Ms. Marvel, Luke Cage. I want to hear more from Vote: Jimbob. If he's Hulk he could be mafia.
  15. Comic Book Discussion Issue #2

    Because they wrote his gay son out of existence
  16. The Avengers

    I hate mixing Superman/Batman and Avengers when there's not really any hint of knowing, and just feels like they have no idea about the source material.
  17. Do You Believe?

    Well the theory is that they were reaction chambers to power the alien mothership, so they were actually hi-tech/useful.
  18. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    No, I mean what I said. I'm a villain (Iron Monger), but I'm townie.
  19. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    So you've told me I've done wrong -- we understand that, because "coming out of the blue" (aka waking up in the morning and looking at your PMs then posting the result in the game thread) and casting a vote for someone (who for all intents and purposes could be mafia) is obviously the most heinous of crimes -- tell me how I should have played.
  20. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    Well enlighten me with what you would do then.
  21. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    I'm not really sure how it's "terrible play", or how I'd play it alternatively? You wanted me to sit on the information that mr-paul is Iron Man, even though all evidence in the game thread up until that point suggested that heroes were mafia? Besides, now we now know that (whether mafia or town) Cube and mr-paul are on the same side.
  22. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    I learned that he was Iron Man using my night power.
  23. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    Ok, it makes sense that the virus has turned heroes in armour rogue, I guess.
  24. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    Does your character wear armour? I'm Iron Monger. I used my night power on you.
  25. MARVEL Mafia Volume 1 : Armor Wars

    For what reason?
