Entertainment & Media / Maleficent (2014)
« on: March 17, 2014, 06:46:55 PM »
I figure since we're about two months away from the premiere, it'd be appropriate to have a thread about the film.

For your viewing/discussion pleasure:

Entertainment & Media / The Dark Knight Trilogy
« on: July 21, 2012, 12:58:27 AM »
In this thread, we can discuss Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises), whether it's the plot(s), the cast(s),  the characters, how it compares to Batman canon in other media or to other Batman films, likes and dislikes, or anything else. I guess I'll start by saying that my favorite is Rises in terms of action sequences/major events/vehicles. In terms of characters and dialogue, my favorite is The Dark Knight, and since I can't think of anything else, Begins has the best use of Jonathan Crane.

Mafia Archives / Animal Farm Mafia - Manor Farm (Sign-ups/Lounge)
« on: June 01, 2012, 01:39:19 AM »
Hello, all. This is my first attempt at hosting a mafia game of my creation, but I think I've been involved in or am going to be involved in enough games to have an idea of what I'm doing. Anyway, the theme of this game is none other than Animal Farm, one of George Orwell's classic dystopian novels. For those unfamiliar with it (a situation I recommend you rectify as soon as possible), it is an allegorical satire of the events leading up to and taking place during the reign of Josef Stalin. To clarify things plot-wise, a group of farm animals led by a pig named Napoleon rebels against their master/owner and takes control of Manor Farm, and the book chronicles the rise and deterioration of the resulting society, a process laden with violence, deception, and greed (perfect for this sort of thing, I think). Note to Orwell fans: I plan to do 1984 after this, but only if this is well-received.

With that out of the way, I'd like to point out that it is not necessary to be familiar with Animal Farm in order to play, though it wouldn't hurt. Regarding the rules, all standard game rules apply. No Lynches and roleclaiming are allowed. However, there is to be no game-related communication outside of the game without me being notified/involved. Failure to comply will result in a penalty for the members of your alignment as well as for yourself. Most importantly, have fun.

If possible, I would like twenty sign-ups. Anyone who signs up after that can replace someone who is modkilled or who drops out.

Sign-ups:

1. Lily (Klavier Gavin)
2. Crash (Iron Will)
3. Ralphfan (Rat)
4. Nabber
5. Bop1996 (Magus)
6. New Super Mario (NSM)
7. Smasher
8. Baby Mario Bloops (BMB)
9. Red Barchetta
10. Raven Effect (Shoey/Xenophon P. Wilfley)
11. Superchao (Blocky/Kiyotaka Ishimaru)
12. Marioguy1
13. RandomGuy (Majin Buu)
14. MarioMaster15 (Neon Lights)
15. Yoshiwaker (Yoshiwalker)

Handheld Gaming / The Pushmo/Pullbox Thread
« on: December 26, 2011, 02:48:25 AM »
If you have no idea what Pushmo is, click here. If you do, this thread provides you with the opportunity to discuss this quirky and addicting game from Intelligent Systems. Such discussion includes but is not limited to your opinion of/reaction to the game (of course) and your favorite Pushmo (most creative, most challenging, or just the most fun to play). If you wish, you can also share the QR codes of your created Pushmo with your fellow users. I'll offer my opinion soon.

Self-explanatory...just list/discuss observations that remind you of your increasing age or your getting out of touch with the present. Ok, so I just saw a commercial for Kids Bop 21 (remember when they were in single digits, or better yet, when there was only one, or even better yet, when they didn't exist?), and I didn't recognize a single song in the commercial.

Are you aware of the relationship between shoes and shoelaces?

So the family won't be in a sticky wicket (hopefully, I haven't butchered the slang too much).

The Marioverse / Mario games that fill you with rage
« on: November 10, 2011, 11:09:40 PM »
Pretty self-explanatory...what Mario games fill you with rage while you play them? An example of mine is Super Mario Bros. I'm in World 6 and cannot for the life of me get past the castle. Doesn't help that 9/10 times, Mario won't *bleep*ing jump over the Firebars (or I'll lose a life because of those dang hammers). Even more pathetic is that I'm stuck in the same dang world in All-Stars.

Off-subject Discussion / The Forum Reading List
« on: November 02, 2011, 07:46:00 PM »
In this thread, we will be able to discuss books we have read. You have the option to recommend a book to us (not just something that you consider to be good, but something you consider a must-read), advise us against reading a book (in either case, you must provide a reason), or to discuss a book already mentioned. No genres or works are off-limits (including religious texts), but there is only one rule. Should you opt to advise us against reading a book, it cannot be because you personally disagree with the author or the ideas presented within the text, or vice-versa. You can, however, express these sorts of opinions should you decide to discuss a work. I look forward to seeing how this thread unfurls.

Must-read: Michel Foucault's Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison

While it only covers the evolution of the French justice system, the work details the evolution of justice from physical torture to rehabilitation, offering insight as to when, how, and why we developed the need for prisons as well as insight into the basis on which criminal actions are judged.

Handheld Gaming / 3DS Ambassador Program Part 2
« on: October 09, 2011, 03:02:20 AM »
With ten free GBA games coming out as part of the Ambassador Program before the end of the year, which of those announced thus far are you most excited about, and what do you hope is included among those that have yet to be announced?

I'm looking forward to Super Mario Advance 3, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and Metroid Fusion, and I'd like to see Superstar Saga, perhaps Ruby/Sapphire, DKC2, Sonic Battle, and for kicks, Golden Sun (I think that TLOZ: The Minish Cap will be one of the games arriving, but I've already got OoT, the first two Zeldas, Link's Awakening, and Four Swords, which I think is enough Zelda for now  ;)).
