  1. @ babydol - I saw the ads for the new Mummy movie and it's not one I'm going to go see in the theater. I loved the first two movies too and even bought them on DVD. :lol: They had flaws but were great light adventure entertainment w/a fun sense of humor.


    I agree with your "Let's just drop the whole "Mummy" franchise, and call this something new, why don't we?" assessment. I mean, I can see wanting to have a new bad guy because how many times can you "kill" Vosloo's mummy, but the rest....meh.


    Yay!!! someone agrees! I was gonna make my review a bit more imformative, but I really did run outta time while I was typing. :aiee: Let's just say it was pretty weak, and in no way does it belong next to the other Mummy movies. :ermm:

  2. I just realized that I haven't really complained about the new Mummy movie yet. :*


    I saw The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor on saturday.


    1st I want to start out by saying that I'm a HUGE fan of the 1st 2 films. I never really liked Brendan Fraser because of the types of films he's in, but these movies changed my mind about him. His character is VERY crush-worthy, and he's funny enough to keep the movies interesting.


    And I ADORE John Hannah! Goodness, does he make me laugh.


    So now, we get to this movie. I will list my grievances first. To be fair, I came into this movie with a piss-poor attitude. I WANTED to hate it. Mainly because I'm such a fan of Rachel Weisz. She's GORGEOUS.


    Her awkward-dorky-but-learning-to-be-strong take on Evelyn is PERFECT. She and Fraser also have great chemistry. My own belief is that Univeral should have done what ever was needed to get her into this film. Be it $ or script changes what ever. And if that wasn't possible, just write her out. Say she was away. Or something.


    Also, no Oded Fehr or even Arnold Vosloo. :ermm: Let's just drop the whole "Mummy" franchise, and call this something new, why don't we?


    But this film does take a turn for the better. Mainly when the Yetti appear. And if it's got to be someone new, Jet Li was a good choice. He's always given me the creeps, since I first saw Leathal Weapon 4 years ago. He's SCARY to me.


    I need to wrap this up cuz I've got to go.

    All-in-all, it was a pretty good film. But it would have been WAY better with Weisz. :yucky:

  3. Meh.. don't ask me questions that are going to make me analyze it. :) I don't really know what I like most about KotOR 2. All of it, I guess. The story is always the most important part of ANY game for me, but characters are what make RPGs great. And the fact that it's all Star Wars seals the deal.


    So yeah, I don't know. I'd like to vote in the poll, but I really can't pick. :aiee:

  4. I'm gonna say Newt, Hudson, Hicks, Dallas, and Vasquez.



    Newt was sweet and quiet, young and innocent, but SMART. Look how long she lasted "with no weapons and NO training."

    "Why don't you put her in charge?"



    I liked Hudson, because of the "freak out" factor he added to the film.



    Hicks, because he was just so cool and "with it". And my whole childhood crush-thing. :)



    Dallas. When he died in the 1st film, I remember thinking that all bets were off. He was the one I considered the strongest character, and without him, things seemed to degenerate quickly.



    And Vasquez because she was so bad*ss. But feminine in her obvious care for Drake. Ripley was VERY cool. And VERY strong. But they managed to find a woman who was even stronger.


    Also, :aiee: @ Pop's pic.

  5. As frustrating as waiting may be for some of us that are super-impatient, (because after all, it's been like YEARS) at the end of the day, I still REALLY appreciate Team Gizka.


    I'm CRAZY-excited to play the RP. The sooner it's done, the better, but I think we'll all agree that a bug-free version is what we want. TSL, as much as I ♥ it, has enough bugs already.


    We will ALL bow down when it's finished. :( So try to keep that in mind now.

  6. Just to join in: My Exile usually wields a purple and a yellow/or red. I'm ALWAYS a sentinel. But I'll go red from time-to-time, but I keep the purple.


    My male Exile will replace purple with Cyan - although the fact that a lightsaber with Cyan is ALWAYS active gets annoying.


    Atton gets silver and/or orange (which is remarkably close to red, but also more manly than yellow).


    Visas gets yellow, Brianna & Kriea get purple, Bao gets blue, Mira purple and/or yellow (again, for dual-wielding. I HATE dual wielding the same color light sabers). Mical will get green or veridian (or whatever that other lighter green color is)


    When I go red, the whole bunch goes red, however. But I'll still mix 'em all up with silver, orange, and purple.


    And I guess that about covers it. So yes, I guess I try to stick with class solors. But only when I feel like it, really, since everyone in the game seems to be a sentinel.



    Also, I'd like to quote Wookieepedi under Light sabers:


    "The color of a lightsaber blade was defined by the focusing crystal used in its construction. The Jedi collected crystals of varying types and hues from natural deposits, whereas the Sith made use of fabricated synth-crystals usually designed to emanate shades of red. After the purges of the Old Republic's Jedi order, synth-crystals were also shaped and used by Jedi on occasion. Luke Skywalker's green blade and Jaina Solo's violet blade both sprang from synth-crystals.


    Prior to the final battle of Ruusan, ancient Jedi wielded blades of every color and hue. Some of the more common colors were orange, yellow, cyan, blue, green, viridian, violet, silver, and gold. Some ancient Jedi, such as Sylvar, even wielded blades of red hues, although the order typically avoided any colors that might associate them with the Sith. Red was also avoided since it was the most common representation of blood and violence. After the terrifying end of the Ruusan conflict, however, Jedi turned to more common Adegan crystals of blue or green coloration. Other colors, like bronze and brown, did still exist, but were extremely rare. Mace Windu, for example, braved the terrors of Hurikane to find his violet crystal.


    In the era of the Jedi Civil War, the color of a Jedi's blade was a traditional symbol for the path the Jedi chose in his duties within the order, although a Jedi was not required to use a color that corresponded with his or her Jedi class. A green blade was the sign of the Jedi Consulars, scholarly diplomats and negotiators. Blue was the color associated with Jedi Guardians, the physically vigorous defenders of the galaxy. The third color, yellow, was held for those among the Jedi Sentinels, Jedi who found their skills balanced between physical prowess and scholarly awareness of the Force. For the purposes of the lightsaber's strength, these crystals functioned identically; color was the only variation.


    After the Great Jedi Purge, Emperor Palpatine razed many of the known crystal sites, making it more difficult to find crystals of any hue. After the rise of the New Jedi Order, however, the discovery of long-forgotten resources and the use of synth-crystals brought a variety of colors back to the order's lightsabers. "

  7. I saw 'The Dark Knight', too. I thought it was a hellova movie. :dancing: The Joker thing was a bit of a hanging plot line, though. I've heard Ledger finished filming, so I'm guessing the plan was to bring him back for the next film?


    Also, Maggie Gyllenhaal SOUNDS a lot like Katie Holmes, but DANG. I didn't know why I found her so UGLY. Until I realized, she looks JUST like her brother. And Jake is HOT. But as a woman? :ermm:

  8. Rifles are pointless? Hmm, seems to me the Candalore always manages to chew up and spit out enemies. Now granted, it was a lot more fun with the Ordo repeating cannon in the original. But even with the Mandalorian assault weapons in TSL, he could administer a lot of hurt.


    Now, that said, I'll always go for lightsabers for my PC.


    Agreed. And w/o blaster rifles, where does that leave Candalore (♥ that! :p ) and HK-47? Don't tell me you have anyone but pre-Jedi Atton (and occasionally Mical) dual-wielding blaster pistols? :ermm:

  9. It seems to me like Kotor2 is the most buggy and laggy game. It is hardly compatible with any video cards. So no, there is no way to fix that problem unless you buy a different video card.


    This hardly explains why he's having trouble with K1 also, now does it. :ermm:


    @Strawberry Dutch: Just give it a wee bit of time, and someone techy around here should notice this thread, and be able to give you some advice that'll be more HELPFULL. Hang in there! :p

  10. The only reason I'd ever really WANT Bioware to do it, is because they have a looming LA project. So in THEORY, it could be done sooner, rather than later.


    That LA/Bioware project is NOT KotOR3. In fact, it's not KotOR at all. See my sig.




    Meh... until something's ACTUALLY been announced on LA.com or Bioware.com, I'm not giving up hope. There've just been too many articles that have been released contradicting the one in your siggy. So I've learned over time not to believe anything that doesn't come straight from the horse's mouth, be it good OR bad news.

  11. Maybe I'm just a Bioware fanboy

    SOOOO true! :banghead:

    Anyway, I really don't much care who makes it, Bioware or Obsidian. I just want it to exist.

    Well, you SHOULD, damnit! The only reason I'd ever really WANT Bioware to do it, is because they have a looming LA project. So in THEORY, it could be done sooner, rather than later. But, let's face it, Bioware is NOT who they used to be. Do you even know WHY Obsidian ended up with K2, as opposed to Bioware? Bioware told LA they were too busy. Because they were working on that cack 'Jade Empire'. ONE game.


    Now look at all that Bioware is up to now. Sonic for the DS *yawn*, ME 2 & 3, Dragon Age (I'll be a bit excited about THAT 1), and 3 other 'mysterious' projects, including an MMO and the aforementioned LA project.


    All right, I'm done. I like Bioware. A lot. I just think it would be PERFECT if Obsidian did K3, is all. Like, as soon as they're done with the Aliens RPG. :yes:

  12. There's not much way that BioWare could do justice to the complexity that Obsidian put into K2. They build fine games. But they're amibitious when it comes to style and gameplay, not story. Their stories are meh.


    I agree with this. If Bioware's so grand, why not gush about them over there? THAT'S right, they're so very touchy about anything you post on thier boards, and most K3 threads end up locked. :huh:


    I don't mean to sound grouchy about it, but if you think Bioware is the better choice, I think you're CRAZY. How deep was k1, REALLY? There's really no unanswered questions, and as much as I ♥ Mass Effect, it seemed to me to be an updated KOTOR, but w/o having to pay Lucas royalties (and knock back the M rating, which is NEVER gonna happen for a Star Wars game). It's also GLARINGLY obvious that ME is the 1st of a trilogy. It's WAY too short (even completing all side quests), and not much happens in it, except a tiny introduction to some HUGE lurking threat. Don't believe me? Try playing it back-to-back a couple times, and see how bored you become.


    Also, I doubt there'll be much to discuss regarding that game 4 years from now.


    Sorry to rant. I guess I'm just grouchy. :x And I ♥ Bioware. I just worry about them with the whole EA thing, and all. And I ♥ Obsidian TONS more!

  13. I'm entirely unoriginal, and not very creative. :( Until I think of something better... I've been Bastila for like, ever.


    However, I AM open to suggestions. If y'all have any. :biggrin:
