  1. And so Hasbro decides to go all "Crimson" with Star Wars too. As if it wasn't bad enough that they came out with Crimson variation on most GIJoe stuff for Cobra, now they're gonna start doing it to the Empirial fleet too. I can see it now, Crimson AT-AT's, Crimson Shuttles, Crimson Tie Fighters, Crimson ARC's, Etc. I'm only sort of joking. It looks pretty good, but I still think this could be the start of something...

  2. Not really planning on getting one until after the beginning of next year. I figure I'll be busy enough with Gears of War and Gold Planet for the 360 to get me buy. But Since God of War 2 comes out in Feb for the PS2 (they hvaen't changed it to a later date or PS3 game yet) then that will get me through Feb. Now once March gets here I have to own a Wii just so I can play the RE game that comes out in March.

  3. After thinking about this I'm wondering if Spidey is going to come out of CW being a real outsider, here's what I mean. Right now Spidey has just left IM's side and I really don't think he's going to like the fact that the GG (or many of his old enemies) is now working for the government. But I can also see Cap not taking Spidey in since he was IM's errand boy (for lack of a better term). Esspecially after some of the stuff that has happened in CW and Cap's own title. This but Spidey on his own and after the dust has settled I can see Spidey being a little more distant to other heroes. But these are just some thoughts floating around my head.

  4. Free online is nice and all, but I'm still waiting for Sony and Nintendo to really announce what their online services will be like. Xbox Live had set the bar pretty high and over the last year with the 360 it's gotten even better.

     

    As for the $50 a year price tag, I've had live for three year now and don't think I've paid $50 altogether for the service yet. I won a year free through some contest and that paid for my first year. My second year cost me $15 when Target had the 12 month kits on clearence. And this last year I only paid like $25 for when I bought another 12 month kit at a TRU that was closing last spring.

  5. Well since Loeb and Mad have had almost a year at this point to be working on Ultimates 3, it had better not be late. The only thing I'm really wondering about is the length of Ult 3. People are expecting it to be 12 issues and I'll bet it's only 4 to 6, esspecially with Ult 4's creative team already being announced.

  6. The HD-DVD add-on is $200 for both systems and neither has or will have it built into the consoles in the foreseeable future.

     

    No true. The PS3 has no HD Dvd player, since it uses Blu Ray and the Blu Ray disc is now Sony official disc for games. The Blu Ray player is built in to the PS3. The HD DVD add on drive for the 360 will only play movies and so far Microsoft has said no games will be issued on HD DVD disc. Now sometime in the future the might include the HD DVD drive built into the 360 especially if the price comes down enough, but thy probably wouldn't issue games on HD DVD since it might (I'm not sure how the HD DVD add on will work and if sometime in the future it could be used for game, since MS has said it will only be for movies) alienate the first yearf owners of the 360.

  7. I've been saying for s while that it was going to be a $600 PS3 vs a $600 360. Granted you don't hvae to have the HD DVD for anything game wise and I'm sure spending $200 for the HD DVD drive for those that already have a 360 doesn't look too bad (myself being one of them). But if it came down to a straight PS3 vs 360 I'm not sure what I would have done. Right now I'm not in a rush to get a PS3 and quite frankly I really doubt I'll buy another 360 game for a while. But I'm having a lot of fun playing game on X _Box live arcade (just got Doom last night and am still playing Uno, Time Pilot and Poker all the time).

  8. This is a direct quote from the Newarama interview:

     

    Mark Millar :

    "Yeah, I had Thor pegged since the beginning for the simple reason that I wanted to see him in this book. It was honestly that simple. I'm very old school with Marvel and the fact we were missing Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, The Hulk and Thor (among others) really diminished the visual element of the book for me as I was putting the story together. My inner ten-year-old just enjoys seeing big spreads with all these varied characters lumped together. It's what makes a crossover special to me. So Thor was always coming back, one way or another.

     

    Originally, I thought we could maybe have his big return in the book, but when I realized a new series was in the works I rejigged my plans a little and followed this approach instead. It actually works better this way too because it pulls the rug out from under the readers and has given us quite a frightening character in subsequent issues. "

     

    For the whole interview go here:

    So no this isn't Thor's big come back, just a way of using "a Thor" in th e story and to make us all wonder WTH between issues.

     

  9. But the 60GB PS3 doesn't have a MSRP in Japan, so retailers can sell it there for whatever. That and Sony thinks that the PS3 will be a bigger seller in the US then in Japan. So I think we'll see the price remain at $499 and $599 although I would have to consider a $420 PS3 esspecially since they have announced that it will have the HD outputs and inputs.

  10. First off to Amazing Spidey, I think he meant the guy in the coat and mask might be Hawkeye.

     

    Now on to other stuff. While I still really like th concept behind this series I still think the execution of it has been pretty poor. I can't see a reall way to redeem Iron Man after all is said and done. Mutants can't really pick a side since there was already the Mutant Registration Act and effectively all X-men related mutants are already known to SHIELD so it a moot point. That and why on earth would you have SHIELD be incharge of anything when every other storyline it's revealed that the organization is corrupt of atleast doing a lot of thing it shouldn't be doing.

     

    Don't expect the real Thor to show up, in an interview over at Newsarama Millar stated the reason for coming up with the clone Thor was because he was upset that he wasn't getting to use so many of Marvels well known characters in CW (Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch). And I don't see why Cap doesn't just go get Thor's Hammer since he's been proven worthy of lifting/using it in the past. I do have to wonder if that is the real hammer the clone is using. If not then you can explain it away rather quickly, but if it is how can he be worthy of using it? just because he's a clone doesn't make him worthy.

     

    Also the reason for the Thing still being around is because his leaving happened in FF after the fight with Cap's group. So while he left in the FF book before CW #4 came out, the event within the book happen during CW #4.

     

    The worst thing is we now have until Mid Nov until issue 5 comes out.

  11. Well the last couple days I been going through alot of my stuff and deciding that in the future I might eBay some of it. So I'm trying to decide what I want to keep and what's going to go off to eBay. Well many of the figures from the last couple year are great and many are passable, but looking at some of the PotF2 figures leave me wanting better version, even some that came in later series. So I thought I'd share what I'd really like to see and see what others want too.

     

    First I really want a better Hoth Luke (last one was the Saga one in 04, but I hated the bloodied face). We haven't had a new one in a while yet how many Tatoonie Lukes have we had? A new Ceremonial Luke and a decent Hoth X-wing outfit Luke (Yeah I know it's just a difference of boots and gloves, but still). A new Hoth Leia and a SA Bespin Luke (funny how most of these are Empire figures).

     

    That's about all I can think of off the top of my head. any one else have any?
