  1. I would dig some freebie incentives. I have a 2 pack backed.. the wings price is a bit steep for me but debating. They really need to show them in action, instead of the silhouettes. Its hard to fathom just spending that kind of money without seeing them first. I know they do quality but again not made of money to make it rain everywhere i go.


    Which ones are you getting? I want to back these, but I am not sure which ones I want. I want to get atleast two in one order, so it's a draw between the duck, the vulture, and the screaming eagle. Probably go the duck and eagle route and pick up a vulture down the road.

  2. I didn't know anything about this till know I would have loved to had this.I wonder if the Hasbro store will sell them on August 5th


    It went on sale the Wednesday after SDCC and was sold out in minutes...



    :( :( :(

    People that waited all day online since monday missed out also. They were gone in 6 minutes. My friend got lucky I was at work when it went up. I did not get one but have one coming from a friend from sdcc but I paid more. I was trying to get another one and was on all morning Tuesday and Wednesday. But missed when I was at work. The worse thing is I would of went on my break a few minutes earlier. I might of had a chance.:(


    I hear Hasbro is horrible when you want to get these exclusives


    Its actually worst than Digital River if you can believe that...


    It is, last year I tried getting my wife Hasbro's Derpy Hooves Pony Exclusive, it would be up, then gone, up, then gone, most frustrating thing exclusive Ive ever tried to get.

  3. I had problems with bioshock as well but i figured out from searching online that it was because I was not connected at all to the internet


    You mean you HAVE to connect to the internet to play a game? Say it aint so!

  4. AC2 is awesome. Its what got me into the series to begin with. As well as Dead Rising 2, which happens to be alot more fun in co op with a second buddy playing. Sucks about Bio Inf but the game is so good, its worth hitting over multiple times anyways. But I do know that feel, just consider yourself lucky it wasnt the whole game and all your actual progress was gone.. if you werent that far, I would just say start over anyways.

    I just went ahead and restarted it that day anyway, played till about when I have to throw that baseball or whatever at that couple and havent touched it since. Dead Rising has been a lot of fun so far, Im at the part where I need to get on my bike and I guess fight that other guy? Still a lot of fun.


    I bet your excited for the new Injustice DLC arent ya? My wife doesnt get off till 9 or so, Im down to play if you want.

  5. Hey guys, been a while since I posted, just haven't bought many figures lately. Been playing a lot of games lately, Assassins Creed 2 was available for dl for free last week on xbox live, so played that a little, it seems like a fun game, still trying to get the controls down though. Also been rotating around on the PS3 between Dead Rising 2, Red Dead Undead Nightmare, and the stand by, Black Ops 2.


    Still havent touched BioShock Inf, since the incident, not sure if I mentioned it here but I was over half way though the game, my brother in law wanted to try so I let him play, and since this is one of those "check every corner" kind of games, I figured Id just restart the chapter since I wasnt far into it anyway. So when I went to load it up, it saved my progress, but not my weapons, powers, or money. Been mad ever since.


    What have you guys been playing?

  6. When I said a new Mario title, I don't mean the Super Mario Bros games, I mean like Mario Galaxy or something. Ive heard rumblings about a new Zelda, but I would need to see it to believe it. WiiU just feels like its not a big enough step forward. The graphics look like current gen consoles, and they STILL don't play blu rays, can they even play DVD's? I understand some people just don't care about that, but it's annoying that it can't play it on my current Wii. Plus nintendo titles seem to fall flat for me, save for the big inhouse titles, I don't really play Wii.


    Been playing more and more Gears, it's been a lot of fun, but I dunno, something about it just feels off. Dunno if anyone here watches 10 For The Win, but they did an episode about the new Gears game. Steve goes "Oh man, I LOVE Gears, I can't wait to play as Marcus Pheonix!" and Larsen says "You don't play as Marcus, you play as Baird" and Steve just replies a dissappointed "Oh..." That summed up exactily how I felt. The game is fine, but it seems to be the exact same thing over and over. Level starts with a bunch of guns and ammo and you can choose to do that extra mode to make it harder, then start the game, survive the wave, and onto the next ammo and gun filled check point. Lather, rinse, and repeat. I will rent it for one more night then I am out of redbox free game rentals.


    Anyone else here getting BioShock? I ordered mine from Bestbuy but it wont be here till Thursday.

  7. I am waiting on the next smash brothers to decide if I want it or not...

    EvilHayato is waiting for a fighting game, what a shocker! That's almost as implausible as me waiting on a Call of Duty title! I will admit a new Mario title might be enough for me to get a WiiU also, but I would love a Zelda title much more by far.

  8. Hey guys, havent posted much lately, just havent been much in the mood and been kinda busy. Been playing a ton of games lately, well a ton for me atleast. Work is kind of slow today so I thought I would mention a few games I've been playing recently and what I think of them.


    Downloaded the newest map pack for Black Ops 2 (yeah I know nobody here plays it except for maybe Spystreak) and I've been playing the crap out of the new Die Rise zombie map. I love playing CoD Zombies, infact I wish it was it's own full, stand alone game. Just make it Treyarch,.


    Rented Tomb Raider a few weeks ago, really a wonderfully rendered game. I was playing on the 360 in my bedroom on an SDTV and even then I thought it looked amazing. The game play was very solid too, I never really got into the series so I have nothing to compare it to, but it was fun.


    Got a Windows 8 phone and Im really enjoying it. Mostly because I get achievements from playing games like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja added to my gamertag (yep, finally over 1000). Both those games are tons of fun too, but I think games that involve d-pads just dont work on touch screen. I don't know, but playing Earthworm Jim just didn't feel the same.


    Redboxed the new God of War, really a good game, but feels a lot like the third one. Still a fun game, even if I have to explain to my wife why they have to show women's breasts in the game (my defense is always "I didn't design the game" and "It's just pixels") I noticed early on you can spam the grab and throw over and over and you can get through just about anything. Take that for what its worth, good or bad.


    The new Gears of War is again, a good game and more of the same. So far a lot of the levels have felt the same, now I am not too deep into it, but it feels like just more and more corpses to grind (and is that really such a bad thing?) Good solid game, definately one to play with your buddies.


    Played the new Metal Gear game too, a lot of fun and feels a lot like Ninja Gaiden. Not a bad thing at all, infact when I saw my brother playing it at first I mistook it for Ninja Gaiden, and that is a compliment! Definately a game I would be interested in picking up for myself, I'll just wait for the price to drop.


    Now to round it all out, I preordered the new BioShock Infinite and man, I am excited for this one! I love BioShock, I love the environments in the first two and I look forward to the dramatic change from the underwater to the sky. Should be a blast to play and I am hoping for a compelling story.


    Final thoughts, I am really looking forward to more and more news about the PS4 and 720. Now I myself won't be getting either when the first come out, but eventually I want to own both. As for the Wii U... I just havent seen anything that makes me want it. Short of a new Zelda title, I don't think I will be getting the Wii U anytime soon.

  9. I've haven't bought any new figures at all since about the beginning of December, I thought I was done collecting for the most part, infact I've sold off a decent size chunk of my figures. This line REALLY looks great and I would for sure get a few of them, not every single one, but I love the Duck, The Phoenix, The Vulture, Rooster, and Griffin, so I'd probably want those to go along with my elephant and cat's I've already got from them. They put out good stuff for sure.

  10. Ya I would file a complaint. I bought something off ebay at the begining of the year and the person sent it to me with $16 postage due (which was insane and the guy was trying to stick it to me for winning with low bids) anyhow, my wife gets home one day and there is an SUV in the drive way and a USPS mail lady waiting. My wife walks up and the woman explains she has a package with $16 due, so my wife asked her to hold on a second while she calls and asks me if she should do it (and the answer was "no") first call was to my cell and I didn't answer, so she hangs up and starts to dial my work number and the postal worker goes "I dont have all day" which is NOT something you should say to my wife. My wife and her got into an argument and the woman left.


    I called and complained about it that afternoon and they gave me a case number, the next day the womans supervisor called me to ask what happened. I explained and he was very apologetic, saying she would be dealt with (I told them her exact name) I was very surprised they actually followed through and called me to get more facts about it. I was pretty unhappy with the whole thing, but surprised by the post office's quick reaction.

  11. I recently finished the second season and I must say, I am impressed.


    I was cautious going in, mostly due to the fact that I typically enjoy the grittier shows that can be seen on premium channels like HBO, Showtime etc...


    A & E was surprisingly effective however in their presentation of this show. It has much more gore and violence than I would have thought possible on a network.


    Considering I don't have cable, I'll keep watching... as long as it appears on Netflix.


    Yeah, A&E really pushes the limits sometimes. If you liked the walking dead and enjoy gritty shows, I gotta recommend Breaking Bad. Watch the first few seasons of it, and you will see some grit and grime that will leave you begging for more.

  12. That is awesome Shokker! Ya, I bet you are glad you drove the distance, its all about the experience!


    I have met a few famous people, but nothing impressive. I met the Undertaker once at a signing, my brothers and I skipped school that day so we could stand in line to meet him (he showed up drunk and a few hours late lol) I did shake his hand, it was like shaking hands with a bear, they were huge!


    I met Alan Jackson when he came into the subshop where I worked and bought a bunch of food (I didnt recognize him, but the girl at the register did)


    The only other person I met was Ray Liotta. He also came into my shop (same franchise, different store) and got some subs. He was actually pretty nice and was there with his dad (who I guess lives in the area) It was funny because his dad asked if we had any extra coupons, yet when Ray paid he pulled out a HUGE wad of cash. The next day some regular customers came in and said they had seen Ray the night before out at a near by strip club. Guess I know why he had that huge wad of cash!

  13. so according to an Xbox achievement I'm a black ops 2 master after beating the game on hardened


    But I never see you on multiplayer!


    BTW, I got your request on my 360 for joining your youtube something? I really wasnt sure what it said, and I didnt see anything in the messages. WTF does that request you sent mean?

  14. Nobody asking this so I will...


    Why does he have kuffs on?


    So people will look at the poster and say "Why does he have cuffs on?"


    Like it said in the article, either he is framed for something or is taking the fall for something, either way, its all in the "Good Guy Gets Arrested in Comics" handbook

  15. Don't like it! he's missing his red trunks, he has gaunlets, the cape is too long, the texture of the costume looks off, the blue is too dark and he doesn't have the curl, I'm immediately filing this under: it's gonna suck.


    P.S. This movie is not gonna be as great as the Dark Knight.


    Lol! This is exactily what I mean! People just hate without seeing the finished project. It's like saying "your painting sucks" after just a few brush strokes. Artist are very picky over their works. Most of the time, they don't like showing a work in progress because of unfair conclusions that get made. Not sure if you are being serious or not Belmont, but you can't go into a movie with the thinking "it's gonna suck" or else you will never be able to get beyond that. Who knows, this movie could be awesome! Yeah they changed some things, but they "changed" things for the Batman movies, and those came out pretty nice.

  16. I know I've been hearing a lot of smack about this project, but I am excited for it. I like Snyder's work, and I am interested to see his take on this. I loved 300, Dawn of the Dead, and Watchmen, so I don't see a problem with Superman, maybe he can breathe some life into the franchise.
