Now that we have a Shadowrun movie met with rousing success, what system do you think will hit the big screen next?
>Get teased with the full frontal of Angel Dust
>Never see anything
I'm fairly certain the guns were unloaded by that point. And yeah, I know that doesn't matter in trigger discipline, but this is Deadpool.
Technically, trigger discipline would apply only to those who care about the danger of shooting themselves or the others. Deadpool probably shot himself in the head (and other body parts) more than once out of boredom or curiosity, so he has no reason to care.
I am a serious villian! I deserve to be called by my Serious Villian Name!
I am way cooler than Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, and Flash combined!
He's my litmus test for marvel. If the current issue of dp is amusing then I check out rest of marvel out. If it's boring then I ignore marvel. So far it has allowed me to dodge civil war and x men vs avengers so I think the system works.
did anyone else enjoy the Metal Gear Solid movie?
>amusing means different things than funny
Unless you're a different anon from the first post I replied to, in which case I'm not sure why you replied to my post at all. I was critquing his use of deadpool as a test for the rest of Marvel
I suppose it would if the kind of stuff you like is deadpool. You remind me of a friend who wouldn't play video games if they had a plot because "all that matters is gameplay! Video games don't need plot!"
Are we really at the point where Shadowrun is the codifier for anything vaguely cyberpunk-y?
Where every time we see street samurai and cyberware and megacorps we're just gonna have a bunch of people saying "ooooh it's just like Shadowrun!"
Like, is it really that ubiquitous that no one remembers it's just Neuormancer but with Elves and shit pointlessly tacked on?
Are we going to have to start explaining cyberpunk as "It's like Shadowrun but without magic?"
I was rather surprised by the movie and pleased.
They didn't just make him LolRandumb and actually tried to show off him human side and how fucked up he is.
The bits with pre-deadpool wade were actually a bit charming in a messed up way.
I agree, plots are not neccesary for games where good gameplay is the goal. Great gameplay is not neccesary for a game trying to tell a story. Not all comics need humor, but you seem to be of the opinion that they do.
Enlighten me, what didn't you like about civil war?
stop making up statements. I said that if deadpool comics were amusing then I give rest of the marvel a shot for the time. I've never said that deadpool being amusing was the sign that everything else in Marvel was amusing.
stop making up shit.
Spiderman characterization. Character that did everything in his power to keep his identity as secret in fear of something that EXACTLY fucking happened when he revealed his identity revealing his identity. Cap being swarmed by "true heroes" like EMT and fire fighters. Penance being an actual fucking thing.
There's enough backlog of why people hated civil war that I don't have to repeat. All I have to say is that I agree with the nay sayers.
Yeah, but it was also an incredibly popular event and story line, to the point where there are more people who liked it than disliked it. That doesn't mean they're right, but you can't just say people agree with me so I win. I agree that spider man giving up his identity was a little contrived, but are characters not allowed character growth? Is he supposed to just do the same thing forever? Say what you will about civil war, but it brought up interesting points about if superheros were real
and did a way worse job of it than predecessor comics that did the same thing. It also changed the face of the marvel universe pretty drastically before later stories retconned shit, and a changing universe is a good thing. I agree that captain america getting mobbed was stupid.
If gameplay doesn't matter for story-based why have it be a game at all? Why have it be interactive? Why not just write a book or make a movie?
Why wouldn't I just not buy your game and wait for someone to LP it? It's the same value anyway.
>I agree that spider man giving up his identity was a little contrived, but are characters not allowed character growth? Is he supposed to just do the same thing forever?
Endangering your friends and family after making a vow to never endanger your friends and family isn't character growth. It's a change, but it isn't a good one.
Civil War was a hackeneyed event that only managed to function by severely distorting the personalities of all characters involved. The only good thing to come out of the event itself was The Confession. House of M was much more interesting.
Going back on a promise to do what you think is a good reason after internal conflict, and then having to deal with the consequences and realizing that what you thought was good was kind of shit is character development.
Because a video game doesn't have to be linear. Different people can value different things
Alright, I can definitely see how a lot of the characterization was fucked
it was an incredibly popular event because it's been a while since a massive cross over event was done for Marvel. Black night was also popular despite frequent complaints.
popularity =/= quality.
It also was the times when US's govenment was going through a lot of scrutiny for spying on us citizens. Registration act was a big draw as a premise and frankly, not a bad one. Too bad that it basically turned into Marvel Zombies aka character degeneracy.
>Games can only be what I fit in a very specific mold
Games are an inherently different medium than books and film, and can be used to effectively tell stories that those other two can not, and vice versa.
I'm not saying it was superb, I'm saying it was okay. It wasn't that bad, and had enough good bits inbetween for me to have enjoyed it. And I already said popularity doesn't mean it's good. Read my post.
you are the one that brought popularity up in the discussion about quality for some reason. Just because you down played it doesn't mean that you didn't try to quality popularity as a redeeming factor.
Seriously man, reading comprehension. I brought it up to illustrate that your point about a huge backlog of nay sayers meant nothing. You brought popularity up first, by saying your opinion is held by many people. I didn't downplay my argument, I presented it as a non argument, comparable to yours, and downplayed them both.
I only said that whatever others have said against it, which is frequent, is what I agree. Never made qualitative statement of general popularity or the number comparison between the approvers and the disapprovers. I said that I agree with nay sayers, there's a lot of them and I'm not going to list everything.
Well I've never actually spoken to one before, and it's not exactly like you can look up "every complaint anyone has brought up about civil war" any more than "all the good things about civil war anyone has ever brought up", so that's not exactly helpful when I'm trying to see your point of view. I don't even disagree with most of the stuff you've brought up
Also, saying that there's a lot of them at all implies you think there's a qualitative link there, otherwise you wouldn't have brought it up. Much like you just said about me bringing it up.
basically google marvel civil war sucked and you get my views on it.
Simply it's a hubub that did absolutely nothing but to make characters more unlikeable.
Moral ambiguity is fine, but it went 40k moral ambiguity where everyone is a fucking asshole or an asshat. And they sniped the one guy that wasn't a tremendous asshole in the head.
which was because I didn't feel like bare repeating. Google Marvel Civil War sucked and you get enough results to basically explain my views on it. This was all said at start
I for one can't wait for the day this shitty teenager lolsorandom fad is gone.
Also, Civil War sucked because it went from "two sides with their own good and bad points" to "lol stark building concentration camps and and killing good guys" in like two issues. I get that there should have been a subtext of contemporary politics but the only way they could have been more hamfisted was painting Iron Man's armor with a swastika.
Which is funny, because there's no way Stark isn't going to be the bad guy from go on the movie, either.
Unless they pull a Batman vs. Superman and introduce a real big bad at the last second, they're really going to burn a bridge with Iron Man.
But the Deadpool in the movie was genuinely funny and cool. Also, they tried to characterize him as more than a walking bunch of random one-liners and shooting people in the balls, and, in my opinion, succeeded in doing so. Overall it was a good watch.
I was laughing from the opening credits right through to the end credits.
It's funny. It's vulgar. It's action packed. And yes it's a little bit stupid at times.
But mostly, it's just pure fun.
D... Deus Ex: Mankind Divided?
oh, you meant P&P.
my mistake, I am dumb.
just saw it.
while i must admit that it does have one or two of those moments of "That Guy" feel, it quickly moves on.
Great movie in my opinion
and Brianna Hildebrand has dethroned Charlize Theron for short haired hottie in my book, moving to second place with early movie Morena Baccarin in a close third with the pixie cut
Firefighters, cops, soldiers, emts are all very douchebaggy in their clique.
Remember when burger flippers got the same wage as they did? The first fucking they did was complain that the burger flippers were getting paid much as they are and the flippers were underserving instead of asking for their own raise. Military people are the fucking worst, but I've had enough of anyone associated with a 911 call.
It's a Mutants and Masterminds movie, or one of the other countless systems designed for superhero play.
A 'Shadowrun' classic already exists, it's called Blade runner. Although, it's not Shadowrun, because only Shadowrun takes cyberpunk and marries it to Tolkien.
Now, the next 'system' that'll be engendered by a movie that isn't Marvel or DC could be Star Wars; Rogue Squadron (Star Wars Saga), or Warcraft (Which'll probably be a flop, but can be used for either DnD, or the actual Warhammer RPG).
>I barely make enough at my job to make ends meet, but I do it because I love it.
>Someone else hates their job, and can't make ends meet. Would like to make ends meet.
>Instead of asking for more money for my harder job, that person should starve for performing a service.
This is what some people believe.
> he isn't lolrandom incarnate.
He's plenty random and kinda douchebagy but he still gets moments when he seems human. Like when he's genuinely afraid of what his girl will say about his face or when he can't sleep because of cancer. The actor did good job with breathing life into him.
Nah, people mostly know him from Arrow these days, where he fights
oliver queen because he (slade) was dosed with mind affecting super strength chemicals that cause him to believe oliver killed oliver's girlfriend, whom he was also in love with.
So enjoying the movie because it was entertaining makes you a teenager?
As you grow older and wiser, Deadpool becomes less and less funny.
Then, as you grow yet older and wiser still, once you attain sagehood, you realize life is too short to give a fuck and Deadpool occasionally becomes funny again.
There are two types of people who actually like Deadpool, and you can identify the distasteful sort simply by the way they act in public.
>Then, as you grow yet older and wiser still, once you attain sagehood, you realize life is too short to give a fuck and Deadpool occasionally becomes funny again.
I'd bet money that anon's not even 40
Deadpool by Daniel Way did a disservice to the character.
Deadpool has a tragic origin and uses his humor to mask his pain. he's a sad clown.
Daniel Way just focused on the clown part, dumb memes, lolrandom, and dueling narration boxes.
sadly, its probably the most popular volume of the character's history. Asshole wrote the mediocre videogame too.
read runs by Joe Kelly, Fabian Nicieza (Cable and Deadpool) , or the current run by Duggan for not shitty Deadpool that does more than spout memes.
thankfully the movie uses only like two quick bits from Way's run
