    • Batman Vs Superman

      4 months ago

      Infurnoq

      I think I finally know my thoughts on Batman Vs Superman, and why I think they tried to do too much from the start. I will try to keep this as spoiler free as possible.


      I'm going to start by saying I thought Ben Affleck did a fine job as batman. For the sort of character that they were trying to portray, I think he did a great job with what boundaries he was given. My issues with the batman character they chose doesn't really make sense with the batman character. One of the defining points of batman that I feel was always there was his moral code to never cross the line and kill people. There's really no way you can't see that some of the stuff he did wouldn't have directly caused the death of some of the bad guys.


      As for superman. I think the superman that they were trying to display was okay. The big issue I had with him is that they repeated what they did in the first superman movie(of this cinematic universe), and had him struggle with his humanity and place in the world. Okay we get it, hes an alien on earth. A bunch of the issues they tried to pass of as major concerns with how humanity viewed him just didn't make sense. They invented an issue where his personal feelings directed his actions, and then tried to turn the result of his actions into this giant political issue, but then did a poor job actually selling that people where legitimately afraid of him.


      Lex Luther...oh dear god, why the hell did they have to do that to my poor dear Lex Luther. One of my biggest problems with this movie was their depiction of Lex. I felt he was the saddest excuse of a character in the whole movie. Its like they took the Lex and decided he was the only one who needed a complete make over, and took everything about his character, cherry picked a few parts of him to make it make sense in their story, but then redesigned the rest.


      All in all, I feel like the biggest issue that the movie had was that it tried to do much. What I mean by this is the fact that they throw you into the mix, and show you a whole bunch of stuff that unless you actually are an avid batman/superman/justice league fan, you really wouldn't understand what any of it is, and it just ends up leaving you confused. There is a whole bunch of character chemistry that it is showing, that doesn't make sense without any context behind it.
      (eg Alfred and Bruce). What I think they were trying to do with this is leave doors open to the follow up movies they have planned, but without that context it makes no sense.


      I view it as if you were to watch The Avengers without any of the other movies first. Without knowing some of the backstory, like who Loki is, how he got to where he is. Him as a bad guy with almost no lead-up makes no sense what so ever. He just pops into the universe and is like surprise I'm the bad guy. Or even the Tesseract, you would be left with questions like what is it's purpose, how did it get there, etc. Yes Batman Vs Superman had some of that stuff that related back to the Superman movie, but most of it doesn't make sense without any context.


      Cheers.

    • Destiny Thought *Spoilers*

      1 year ago

      Infurnoq

      So I've been playing a lot of destiny lately and I was talking with one of my Co-workers and we thought of something that be pretty cool for them to do in the Comet DLC.

      So the rumor is that the Comet DLC will be Oryx and most of the missions be aboard a Hive Ship.

      What would be cool is if they layed out the DLC the following way:

      1. Raid - A level 33 raid to make up for no raid in HoW
      Introducing Space Combat with the ships. First part of the raid is that you and your team mates must fight swarms of hive ships and make it aboard a Hive Cruiser(or some other ship designation). From there you work your way through the ship to the bridge, where the raid boss is a group of Hive Commandos and the Captain of the ship.

      2. With the raid complete, it unlocks the DLC missions. These are missions around the ship to fully take control of the ship eg:
      a. Take over the engine room
      b. Go destroy commando group B
      c. Restore power to weapons
      d. etc

      3. Raid - a Level 36 raid
      You take the ship you've capture, meet up with Oryx, fight your way onto his ship and take him out.

      Personally I think that would make for a pretty cool idea. If your thinking to yourself that this sounds a little familiar congratulations, you have read my personal favorite book Halo: The Fall Of Reach. This is fairly similar to the mission that MC and the rest of the Spartans were prepping for before the Covenant attacked Reach, and the events of Halo 1 took place.

      Just thought I'd share my idea.

    • Phone Rant

      1 year ago

      Infurnoq

      So let me start of by summarizing that this whole post is a rant about Windows Phones, and my thoughts on everything to do with Windows phones. So feel free to stop reading here if your not interested.

      So early 2012 comes around and the market is a-buzz with this new version of Windows Phone coming out onto the market. It was going to be huge. A massive improvement from the previous generation of Windows Phones, and coming out along side their kick ass new operating system Windows 8(a totally other conversation).

      So I'm sitting here rocking the Samsung Galaxy. The very first android galaxy phone. It was great, I didn't really have any negative to say about it as a whole, but it was getting old, so it was time to upgrade, and me being a windows guy, loved the idea of getting this brand new windows phone. Hell Samsung was even coming out with their very own Windows Phone. It's specs were awesome. So I per-ordered the phone(cause that was something you could now suddenly start doing). Eventually the phone comes in(December 2012 now), I get it, I start playing with it...I LOVE IT!!!
      The only real downside...not many companies have made apps for it, but that's okay, They are making their iOS apps, their android apps, hell they are even making blackberry apps(cause that's still a thing), no big problem, its pretty understandable it might take some time for companies just on board and get their apps developed.

      Lets jump forward. It's now August 2013, I just finished a week long trip in the US and I'm back in Canada. My phone has been bugging me for days that there was an update, so being back in Canada, I decide to update my phone. Update goes fine and there doesn't seem to be any issues.

      Suddenly my phone which works wonderfully in my car through Bluetooth to play music, starts periodically stopping. The Bluetooth on the phone has crashed, the only way to fix it? restart the phone. So I reach over, turn the phone off, turn it back on. Everything is working fine again...2-15 minutes later...it crashes again.
      For 6 months, I lost the ability of using my phone through Bluetooth in my car to play music...Well that's shitty, good thing I waited to do the update...6 months later they come out with an update...fixed my Bluetooth issue. Everything is perfect now right? Nope...

      I've had my phone now for a little over a year...and still, no one whose apps I want to use, are making Windows Phone apps..What the F*ck!
      It's not windows fault, they can't control who makes and doesn't make apps for their phone I think to myself, oh well lets just wait and see.

      Lets jump forward again to today. Almost a full 2 years after I got my phone.
      Bottom line, I like my phone, I really do.

      What I don't like about it? Is that no one is F*cking making apps for it. It has on average at least a 10% market share of smart phone in the country. Do banks make apps for it? Is there even a bloody official Snap Chat app? Nope.
      I'm sick and f*cking tired of going everywhere and everyone trying to shove their mobile apps down my throat, when they don't make an app for my phone. Every time I go to my banking site..."Have you tried our mobile app? Download the iOS version here, or the Android version there"
      And now even RT...Team Chaos makes a game, think its available for Windows Phone? you guessed it...iOS and soon to be Android.

      I'm getting really fracking sick of it all. I want to blame someone I really do...but who? Do I blame myself for buying this stupid thing? Do I blame Microsoft for coming out with a shitty product without testing the market for it first? Do I blame to companies who aren't developing mobile apps for it?
      I really do understand though, which is why it makes it so hard and frustrating. Why spend time and money developing something for a phone that has a 10% market share, when you can make two apps and cover 80% of the market share. I expected this phone to take off and bee all great, and it turned out to be a flop. I'm stuck paying for it for the next year or 2 because I mean who doesn't have $700 to blow on a new phone.

      Want to know the real kicker? Apps and that aside, want to know the thing about this god damn phone that is pissing me off the most?
      No one really supports it any more. It's 2 years old, and no one supports it.

      If you've made it this far, congratulations, I've probably wasted a few minutes of your life, and you'll never know how much that brings me the slightest joy smiley0.gif . Score one for the Brian. smiley6.gif I mean who wouldn't love that you took up 2-3 minutes of a person's life, and for that 2-3 minutes you had them entirely dedicated to you in some way. With an average life span of 80 years, there are 42,048,000 minutes in a person's life...and for 2 of them, you were entirely dedicated to this post. So I thank you for taking the time to read it all.

      Anyways Rants over..I'll come up with something more interesting to talk about soon..I really should post more journals where I'm not complaining about stuff...right? Right? RIGHT!?!?!

      Cheers All. smiley12.gif

      So everyone knows that there are three locations where brilliant ideas happen.
      1. In the shower
      2. On the toilet
      3. In bed trying to sleep.

      Well this morning I had a thought and I thought it was pretty deep, it was a saying:

      There is a fine line between hope and delusion. You need hope to move forward, but when you realize the delusion, you can move on.

      Thought I'd share, as it really made me think of things.

      Cheers all!

    • Journey To Mars - Whats the rush?

      1 year ago

      Infurnoq

      So I was reading a news article today, and it was all about some MIT students who published a paper stating that the planned mars colony was doomed to fail within 80 days. One of the reason interestingly enough wasn't the lack of oxygen that most people would assume, it was the exessive amounts of oxygen. For those who don't know too much oxygen is actually bad for the human body. The other primary issue was the long term logistics of maintaining a colony on the planet with support from earth.

      I thought it was an interesting Article, you can read it here.

      I made be ask the question, we are we in such a rush to go to Mars...not only that why are we in a rush to send a bunch of people to their deaths on Mars. I say to the death as they go into it knowing it is most likely a one way mission and that in one way of another they are most likely to die on Mars.

      Would it not make more sense to improve general space travel first? To me the more important thing would be to set up presence in space by either a more permanent space station in orbit, or an installation on the moon.There are so many reasons that it would make more sense to start in general space:

      1. Resources - The problem with sending stuff into space right now is that it requires a massive amount of resources just to get in into orbit. Now while getting all the supplies into orbit would be about the same amount of resources, you would be able to save on the overall resources by actually launching the mission from space. You could hold more supplies as you no longer need to worry about getting into orbit.

      2. Support/Help - Immediately jumping to a colony on marsleaves little to no room for help. I believe I read at some point travel to mars would take 3 months. Well 3 month is a long time to wait if you're in need of any sort of assistance. A space station or moon installation leaves a relatively low amount of time for help. I believe it is well within 24 hours for assistance.

      3. Economy - Not so long ago I read about a plan to set up some sort of space station in order, and to bring some rough astroids to it to mine for their minerals. There are quite a few benefits to this. Not only would it improve thing and ways we do stuff in space, it would act as a way to gather resources without continuing to drill into the planet and destroying it's ecosystem(not that we are smart enough to stop that)

      So in conclusion to my little rant, I'm not saying we should take steps into the unknown, development of our entire society has been because of steps into the unknown. I'm just curious why they are looking to run off to another planet well before we have any regular sort of space activity just goin on around our own planet.

      Cheers All.

      So where do you cross the line between having an opinion and being an asshole?

      I find myself asking that question a lot lately, because I'm constantly reading about things that have nothing to do with me, and while I know that it is the popular opinion, I always see it in another light, and disagree with it.

      I never really say anything about it as it doesn't have to do with me; However because it is the popular opinion and sometimes on very sensitive subjects, I constantly question if I just don't have the same opinion or if I'm an asshole.

      Cheers All.

      So it is another holiday in Canada which means yet again I am working it in place of taking another day off instead. Which actually works out nicely this time as this upcoming weekend is Toronto: Unconventional(formerly RvB:TO, RTO) so I have the Friday off allowing me to take my time and drive down to Toronto to go. I know a few of the people I will meet there and am somewhat looking forward to meeting others. I say somewhat only because sometimes you meet weird people. But all in all it should be pretty fun. Unfortunately I'm not staying for the whole thing, as I volunteered to pick up family from the airport Saturday night, but all in all it should be a pretty fun time. If you are going don't hesitate to come say hello...I promise I won't bite.

      Other then that all is going fairly well. I went and saw Lucy and Guardians of the Galaxy. I thought both were good movies. I personally laugh at the hypocritical responses Lucy is getting with the whole "Humans don't only use 10% of their brain..blah blah blah". Because having sparkly Vampires or young kids go to school to learn witchcraft and wizardry is totally a real concept. When the trailers for the movie were starting a trailer for 50 Shades of Grey came on, my friend leaned over next to me an very audible asked "So how large do you think this screen is, 2.5 - 3 stories". I agree that is must be about that height and he came up with the best line ever and he said fairly loudly, "Ain't never seen porn on a screen this big before." The lady that was sitting on his opposite side obviously heard the whole conversation as she started killing her self laughing almost choking on the popcorn she was eating. I swear I can't take this guy out anywhere without him making a spectacle of himself.

      GotG was a great movie, a great balance between action, story, and humor....for those of you who have seen it I have only one thing to say to you....Kevin Bacon. For those who haven't, go watch it and find out what I'm referring too(or you know cheat and look it up, but that will just ruin things for you)

      Well thats it for now, it's one of those days that I don't have a quiet moment to myself as a hundred different thoughts are racing through my head that I want to think about, do research on, talk about, etc.

      Peace out.

        if I was to answer that? people their dicks....officially I think it has to do with the fact that another company has the music distribution rights here in Canada...which is a load of crap.

      You're aware that Halo 4 doesn't come out until next year right? I think the question was about game coming out this year.
      There are currently no game I wish I had money to buy.

      - No, I didn't know. Sorry. I was going by what someone told me. I thought it was best to reply here and not spoil the rhythm of the thread.

      Just look at how shes cradleing her stomach and the bump as well

        I'm not sure, in some of the other videos of that concert, she's wearing more form fitting clothing, and in some she looks a bit, but in others she doesn't. Who knows, if she is I'm sure the media will tell us about it soon enough.

      hey, I'm way too ADD-like to take online classes. I'd end up on every site except my school's lol

    • L33TcaptBLUE

      I'll have my associates by June this year then its off to the serious classes. Flash was probably my favorite I'm all about the animation. I was gonna take Maya and advanced Flash but they weren't offered this year :(

      (school rotates classes every other year. not worth pushing back my degree though)
