  1. LOL I can see it now...

My power was out for a week from that snowstorm that hit the east coast..so what I miss?" - WiiMaster69
  2. you know that actually kind of happened to me... I bought some figures from someone and didn't here back from them forever. I posted on here about and someone said he was in a very serious accident of some kind, but he supposedly got better... never did get those figures though!!!
  3. have you looked around? i'm sure theres a flash game somwewhere online lol try newgrounds
  4. A prequel would be alright i guess to give more background on the other characters. this is in the works because of Whitfield's cancer I'm guessing? something to keep the show alive in peoples minds until he's fit enough to start filming season 2 probably. The most interesting/exciting part of the Spartacus story is the actual rebellion. I wish they would get on with it already. They've barely even mentioned Pompey and Crassus yet. It would be neat if they threw a young Gaius Julius Ceaser in the story somewhere, he had to be around somewhere at the time, a young officer maybe. Yeah, it's because of the cancer. It makes a lot of sense from a business standpoint. They have all these sets, props, costumes... lots of that could be used. But the biggest costs are probably the studios they have rented out and the people who are under contract. I like the idea of throwing Caesar into the mix. This all took place before he became emperor. He would have been as you say, a young officer. From Wikipedia: So if history gives us some grey area, why not play with it? to be a dick , Gaius Julius Ceaser never became emperor of Rome, he just paved the way. The first emperor of Rome was Gaius Julius Ceaser Agustus, aka, Octavian, Octavius, Augustus. I think his original name was Gaius Octavius Thorinus or something like that. then he took on Julius Ceasers's name as his adopted son basically. as did most of the emperors there after. (as well as some leaders throughout history from all over the globe; they add some form of ceaser to their name, ie czar in russia)
  5. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GIEHPGj9sI LOL
  6. yeah i don't understand it. Ive seen tv shows from a few years ago with better cgi than a lot of movies recently. If youre putting cgi in the movie, hire some company/team who is actually good at it. especially cgi characters/monsters.
  7. <---- @hmmm@ these "people" on the boards are pissing me off lately.

  9. wow LOL... even that little girl behind her has that WTF?!? look on her face in the beginning. I believe in slaves and made in china because i live on the east coast
  10. that still looks better to me than half the cgi crap they shove down our throats there's made for tv movies about Jason and Oddysseus that are newer. came out in the late 90s early 2000s. worth watching if you like that stuff, but don't expect much lol http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118414/ - The Odyssey http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0217579/ - Jason and the Argonauts http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0340477/ Helen of Troy (2003)
  11. gears 3 looks great. halo reach beta in about a month!!! can't wait! @ EvilHayato - Darksector is fun. It reminds me of Resident evil.
  12. LOL ?!!??? is it like on the armor or is it the guys actual penis? either way - hilarious The actual penis. Guess Bioware gave their character's private parts. It was rumoured that the sex scenes in the game were goin to be more graphic but was censored because of Fox News' accusations against the scenes in Mass Effect well that would definitely be replay value... if you wanna see all the girls/guys in the game naked you gotta make different choices each play-through lol
  13. LOL ?!!??? is it like on the armor or is it the guys actual penis? either way - hilarious I just beat Rise of the Argonauts today. Not that long of a game, but I enjoyed it for what it was. I played on hero difficulty (medium difficulty I guess. the others were human and legend) and died for the first time on the second to the last part. I blame my couple of deaths on the not so great controls. Other than that it was pretty easy. The game fudges with the classic mythology you'd know, but it makes a pretty decent story. and most of the favorite characters in greek mythology make an appearance. I got my copy for around $16 new. that was the cheapest I saw it anywhere. I will say that if i paid 60 for this game when it came out, i'd be pretty darn pissed off lol if you can find it for under $20 then I'd say go for it.
  14. holy crap he has cancer that sucks. hope he gets better http://www.fancast.com/blogs/2010/tv-news/spartacus-star-has-non-hodgkin-lymphoma/
  15. I liked the movie for what it was. The slow motion fighting where he explains how hes gonna knock the guy out i didn't like...nor the flashback stuff, but thats about it. I enjoyed the rest. might end up buying when it goes for 10 or under lol
  16. It was decent if you go in with absolutely no expectations like i did. I only watched one trailer... once...Don't compare and contrast with the original or the various Perseus mythologies. the story is not that great. the action is not all that special, infact its sometimes very frantic and annoying to the eyes. but it keeps you watching and occasionally laughing at the campyness of it. Perseus might as well have been Jake sully or Marcus he was playing the same character apparently in all 3 movies. he even looks pretty much the same.. shaved head, grey/tan/greenish shirt. The 3d was crap. if I would have looked into it ahead of time and saw that they added 3d in after i would have opted for the the regular version.... I basically paid 3 more dollars to watch the movie with sunglasses on. >.< one of the 3d "scenes" was literally all 2d except for a completely random cgi sword sticking up out of the ground and LOL Pegasus was the token black ...uh... guy? The Kraken will destroy your city in 10 days unless you sacrifice your princess to appease zeus! I don't know about you but i'd probably leave the city a couple days after hearing that, if not within the hour, not wait around to die. wasn't it like 30 days or something ridiculous like that in the original movie? lol like anyone would stay in the city!
  17. They are not slow at all compared to the movie :S Now that movie I found just awful :S all the slow motion crap simply took for ever I felt like I was going to fall asleep during most of it S: Re soap opera ... lol I know isn't though?! I've been thinking the same thing about a lot of tv shows lately like lost to name one what movie are you talking about? and all shows that are drama based, are essentially glorified soap operas. This just happens to have alot of action and sex in between. And i feel the gratuitous sex feels alittle authentic given the time period and location. Its more primordial. 300? even though it has nothing in common with spartacus... unless you count the blood and sand part.. lol Are the makers of 300 involved with spartacus at all? This is true. the only difference used to be story and acting ability... now its pretty much just story. Maybe that's why its harder for me to get into these shows nowadays...I have to push myself past the cheesy parts to enjoy the good moments. I couldn't stand battle star galactica, for example, at first, but i tried again last summer and ended up watching the entire series pretty much straight through. the only reason this show has nudity in it is because sex sells, and its on starz so they can show pretty much anything short of graphic hardcore porn. the nudity itself doesn't bother me all that much its more that little disclaimer at the beginning saying its only there to show an accurate portrayal of the times... paaalease they can say the same thing with a show set in this time period and have just as much if not MORE sex in it. Don't get me wrong, I understand it was different ..what 2500? years ago. I like how the people's cloths are loose and they are very much a crowd of animals howling for blood. The long sex scenes however are not necessary in this show, nor any other for that matter a lot of times it just takes away from the overall story. at least for me anyway. for the story, the scene with spartacus and the blond chick whose name i can't remember was necessary to move the story along... did it need to be that long and feature 5 pages of the kama sutra? probably not lol but hey.... bewbs are fun to look at so who cares really.@hmmm@
  18. I scream KAME HA ME HA into the mic when i fire the laser in Halo 3... @hmmm@ that or "SPECIAL BEAM CANNON!!!!" Nice review btw lol
  19. Playing through army two tfd again to get some more achievements... might get the dlc for it i dunno. Its kinda cheap that they ALREADY have dlc out for it. The game was short enough that they could have just put the new levels in... but nooooo I was gonna buy a new game but thought, why spend 50-60 bucks on a new game when i can get a bunch of older ones i haven't had the chance to play yet! I got Rise of the Argonauts, which i started and am enjoying so far. my only complaints are the graphics, but hey i've seen worse. The combat can be annoying sometimes to. also got Dark Sector, Wolfenstein, Way of the Samurai 3, and Fracture. Haven't played any of these yet but they all look fun! Anyone else play the demo for the new dynasty warriors? I though it was pretty neat and am looking forward to playing the full version. I used to love DW 3-4 (?) on the ps2. DW 6 kinda pissed me off when they switched up all the characters weapons and fighting style and the subtle changes they made to combat made it unplayable for me at the time.
  20. The first few episodes of this show were pretty tough to get through... I didn't think i'd watch anymore, but so far I've started to enjoy it more. still could do without the unnecessary nudity and stupid slow motion cgi blood gushes, though. Its like a soap opera with boobs, phallus-es, and cheesy ultra violent death scenes.
  21. I haven't posted in awhile.... i only came back to say that i HATE this tv show and what it did with the Stargate franchise.
