Would /v/ play a stealth action game with pic related as the protagonist?
Nah but I main him in Injustice with the costume from the show. They even got Amell to do voices for it.
FIVE YEARS ON A HELLISH ISLAND
>mfw that episode with Slade in Olivers home
He really was a fantastic Slade.
thread derailed into not videogames but
it's my favorite tv show at the moment. felicity smoak is my waifu
This is actually exactly what I've been wanting since the show aired. I want the Green Arrow equivalent of the Arkham games. Not like Oliver doesn't have his own fair share of gadgets, they're all just mounted on arrows. He uses hand-to-hand as well. It could totally work. Too bad it probably won't happen.
Nah that's Felicity. True master race however belongs to Diggle or Slade.
Oliver didn't actually lure him into doing that, though. Miracuru, or however the fuck they spelt that did. Slade was fucking crazy, and Oliver straight up told him to just leave his family alone and kill him instead.
It's a hit or miss. My friend watched it for 5 minutes and he kept repeating "THIS IS SO STUPID" It was the episode with the Mayor, when GA was confronting him and all his men kept missing. It was the first time he's seen the show however.
It's bretty good. The seasons drag on a bit too long and it's pretty CW (meaning tons of shirtless dudes and parties) but other than that it's a green arrow batman show that gets really comic booky in it's second season.
I love it.
I always love archers in P&P games because they're a one-trick pony that is actually pretty tricky.
The first thing my archer does is fill 10 quivers with 10 kinds of arrows.
2 score standard arrows for general fighting.
1 score silver for undead/nightling fighting.
1 score cold iron for mage/demon fighting.
1 score blunt for nonlethal fighting
1 score whistling for distraction, or attraction.
1 score fire arrows for lighting fires at range.
1 score smoke arrows for signaling, scattering, or just obscuring vision.
1 score barbed causing enemies to bleed.
1/2 score anchoring for impromptu bridgemaking
1/2 Tanglefoot arrows for stopping charges
Then I grab others depending on the exotic locations I visit, and how quickly I get an extra-dimensional quiver.
I'd very much like to play a game where an archer is given an extensive variety of tool arrows, and only a limited space to carry them. But I don't know if a videogame can possibly be dynamic enough to warrant a spread of much more than 6. Even if it includes spy arrows.
Season one is almost unwatchable dogshit.
Season two is 5/10 at best and looking up by the end.
Season three is so far back to season one's almost unwatchable dogshit.
This cunt drags down the whole fucking show. She just sucks all the charisma out of a room.
I know but dude comic book GA is pretty lame to begin with. The only shit I've even enjoyed Green Arrow is in this capeshit soap, in Injustice, and Justice League. I mean the dudes parents were mauled by lions on a safari.
Pay attention to the stinger at the end of the first episode. You'll know the one.
He'll be in proper duds eventually. Probably when he discovers the Speed Force and how to properly achieve Going Fast.
I hovered over it and saw what was happening. I knew it was going to be massive spoilers, but I just couldn't move my cursor. Like watching a car crash or something.
What are you smoking?
S1 is easily a 6-7/10 and 2 a fucking GOAT. Laurel isn't even that bad and she's got plenty of development over the seasons.
I can't say this affects me strongly. Tugging the dog's chain at two ends is extreme romance trite.
The LOA was blowing a load too soon, I never felt comfortable with Black Canary being in this franchise to begin with.
With the open space; definitely good news for future Suicide Squad news I guess?
Deathstroke is like 15 different people in the DC continuum and they would have a hard time making a game based on just one.
On top of that the most well known deathstroke variants are teen titans deathstroke and I would argue arrow deathstroke (maybe smallville deathstroke though I guess).
So teen titans deathstroke would probably be the center, and teen titans slade is boring as fuck generic "lost muh eye now I hate you damn kids on my lawn".
Nah, Felicity on top of them all. I don't even like her, but she's the best female written character in that show and whether you call me a tumblrista or some other fucking shit, you know it's true. Also, Moira should be there as well. No love for MILFs?
>implying they won't just retcon lazarus pits only working once and revive her a gorillion times
I wonder how ra's will show up in arrow. They're not gonna have him just be a formless figure in the shadows for the entire show, right? Hopefully they make ollie go to nanda parbat at one point or another.
>maybe smallville deathstroke
Why did you have to bring that up?
He said he's already seen the pilot and also you're an idiot because you need to watch the whole first season of Arrow to get hooked.
It starts off a bit...iffy, but it gets better as it goes on. Most people were hooked by the first season finale. If that doesn't win you over I don't know what will. But you can't just skip ahead to the season finale either, you need the context of everything before it.
Shit sucks, man. Her tits in that tight suit were beyond god tier. Now we're stuck with Laurel, the single worst thing about this entire series. I don't suppose it'd be too much to ask for Felicity to become Canary? Or, hell, Thea? I mean, she's hot as fuck, and I like incest as much as the next guy, so why not?
I'm on board, if they make it more akin to Just Cause with super-powered enemies rather than making it anything like the Arkham games. Obviously fix the shooting, make melee combat worth a fuck, and do away with the parachuting; lots of weaponry, lots of gagdets, culminating in jet packs and shit to balance it out.
Have it set on some Mediterranean island beneath which is the Hall of Doom (they moved it there, just run with it), and you've been sent on a mission to find and kill Bizarro. You don't ask questions. The buyer paid good money. A job's a job. You're taking the nigger out.
As you hunt him down you face off with other members of the Legion, who either smell something fishy and come at you or who you stumble across and have to deal with. Take down Grundy as he rampages through the streets. Fly jets into Giganta's massive cunt face. Take down Grodd's ape experiment 'cause that shit would ruin your day in all kinds of ways.
Later the JLA show up (tracking the LoD) and they get in your way as well, so you have to take those faggots down too. Superman and the other OP as fuck members are busy fighting Darkseid or some shit, but you'll still find a huge threat in the form of Wonder Woman or Captain Marvel who (after showing up) will patrol the island like Nemesis and come at you with the full force of bullshit magic powers if the opportunity is presented until you figure out how to take them down so you can move on with the job. All whilst dealing with smaller members too, and 1v1ing Batfaggot (if you can kick his ass in Gotham, you can kick his ass anywhere).
After you've dealt with enough members of LoD to find and get into the base and enough members of the JLA for them to no longer be in your way, you go after Bizarro.
Turns out he accidentally put the hit on himself after trying to use the Legion's computers to put one out on Superman.
Yeah, like the producers fucked up whether they wanted to make the Canary a super heroine or just a vile romantic interest because of the sake of plot and ratings. Then bam, they practically introduced her sister out of nowhere as the Canary just because and Season 2 is them just trying to retcon Sarah into flashbacks on the Island.
Liked the first episode, felt kinda rocky about the second one that aired this week.
Is every new "meta-human" he meets going to get conveniently killed off at the end of every episode or what? Shit's certainly shaping up to look that way.
mix arkham with hitman style assassination missions
Yup, a lot. It balances fun and serious in a way that Arrow doesn't even seem to try to because Ollie still thinks he's Batman (love the show, but seriously). They nailed the casting for Barry in my opinion and Iris is qt as fuck.
The best theory I've heard is that they're gonna end the season with "but who was the actual mastermind?" and then cut to video of a gorilla. Everyone who knows comics will just lose their shit and everyone else will just wonder why they ended with a shot of a gorilla.
The Flash often has a chin protector as a part of his costume.
I'm so glad special effects have improved. I mean, it's effectively the same thing (normal running superimposed over superfast footage) but it just looks better.
And that they're willing to embrace goofy superhero bullshit now.
>How do you top that shit?
Infinite mass punch isn't the craziest thing he's done.
How would you do it? Personally, I'd kind of nerf him so that he can't reach top speed nearly instantly. Then I'd make it so that as long as you keep moving the game stays in sort of a perma-bullet time, with enemies all over the place bombarding you with shit but it's manageable since you're so goddamn fast. But as soon as you lose momentum the bullet time goes away and you get rekt.
i dunno, I think it'd be unique.
Obviously something bad, or at least morally ambiguous, but it's pretty obvious he caused the reactor to fail on purpose. After all, if he knew about The Flash and was actually Zoom, he would've had no reason to allow him to become The Flash.
The writers go completely insane and introduce the multiverse.
>if he knew about The Flash and was actually Zoom, he would've had no reason to allow him to become The Flash.
Actually Zoom can't kill Barry before he becomes the Flash or prevent him from getting his powers because with no Flash there would never be a Zoom. He did erase Barry's best childhood friend from existence in one comic though.
Actually, the weather controlling meta-human wasn't actually the Weather Wizard. It was his brother. Killing him off probably leads to the real Weather Wizard's origin story. Multiplex can be brought back by simply saying that it was his clone that took the fall.
Now, if The Mist guy is kill in the next episode, then we can start bitchin
I'd like the idea of Rocksteady making a DC game for each hero, keeping it all in one universe perhaps some build up of their own Justice League game. But this is WB, and Justice League is reduced to Batman and his amazing friends.
But yeah, I could get behind an Green Arrow game, but then they would just recycle most of Shadow of Mordor with the focus time w/ Arkham fighting tossed in. They'd have to do something really different from preventing it looking like Bam Ham with Archery.
>read the last part of the sentence in amell's voice
>search Stephen Amell on google
>those first suggestions
It could be done, but I do agree that it would have to be more than just the Batman games reskinned. I also don't necessarily think they could do as well with actual superpowered characters like Flash, Superman, or Green Lantern. I'd fucking love to see Sucker Punch do a Green Lantern game though, I think they could expand the general idea behind the inFamous games enough to make that really cool.
>but then they would just recycle most of Shadow of Mordor with the focus time w/ Arkham fighting tossed in.
Shit, now that you put it that way, i don't know why they bothered with the LOTR IP when they could've just made an Arrow game with that Nemesis system.
>Be Oliver Queen
>investigate 1%er big shots ruining MUH CITY!
>beat up thugs and underlings
>keep one goon alive to agree to snitch out his boss for you
>Find out where Boss is going or lives
>YOU HAVE FAILED THIS CITY!
I don't know why, but I still love that show. It did a lot of things poorly and was basically just a glorified soap opera about Lex's 50 failed marriages and Clark obsessing over Lana, but I still enjoyed it a lot. Chloe and Lois were so hot.
Much rather have a superhero related game that's not just another Batman.
When the black archer shows up. Episode 8 or 9. Black archer appearing is basically the sign that the shows instantly shifts gears from shitty namedrops and one-episode generic thugs to an actual overarching plot and tension and good villains.
Season 1 is something you sit through in the hopes of it getting better because you see potential that is never really reached, but you enjoy the island segments enough to keep going regardless.
Season 2 is actually good.
Gotham is terrible. Only 3 or 4 episodes in and I'm already giving up on it, no redeeming qualities whatsoever. A Batman series without Batman is pointless to its very core. And the disgruntled, gritty take on Alfred is plain bad.
I guess I'm in the minority, but Arrow grabbed from the very beginning and I loved all of season 1. Didn't think it was slow or boring at all honestly. In fact, parts of season 2 and so far season 3 haven't been as good.
>Shitty wannabe Batman, Arrow.
Fuck No! If you're talking about actual, comic book Ollie then yeah.
They should just do what Rocksteady has been doing in Arkham and have Arrow Ollie as a skin. And if Injustice is any indicator, Amell would probably reprise the role for the skin.
I've only watched the pilot at the constant bugging of my friends, but I enjoyed it. Maybe it's because I was expecting complete hot garbage and the action scenes wound up being WAY better than expected.
>Every time I think Superman is the most overpowered superhero in existence
There's a bunch of people in DC more powerful than him. If we look at other universes, he's not even in the upper tiers.
The deal with Superman is that as long as there's no Kryptonite around, and he's able to feel the suns rays for all of 5 seconds, he's as strong as he needs to be at any given time. He's practically perfect so long as those two conditions are met. Which is incredibly boring.
Slade's locked away so they need a new villain. It's too early in Thea's supervillain training for her or Malcom to do it.
Next season will be Ra's, and that'll kick off when they dig deep enough to find he had Sara killed.
Nyssa will help them go against him. Oliver's boner will find a new adversary in Talia.
Bank on it.
It's Speedforce, he doesn't have to explain shit.
lel he's already out dude. Can't keep fucking deathstroke locked away. On top of a double dose of mirakuru he's on an island that he knows like the back of his fucking hand. Plus he could just swim back like he did the first time. He'll be back, just you watch.
>implying it wouldn't be a superhero dating game.
Yes. Shadows of Mordor is what it would be. Fucking awesome.
I can't look through the thread because I'm not caught up, and there is always an asshole shit poster waiting to spoil it. I had to take a sabbatical from half of the sites I visit, because they think "If I've seen it, EVERYONE has seen it". Twats
Of course we'll see him again, but it's not going to be as a straight up villain. He's going to get right in the head after all those years of mirakuru caused insanity and try to atone for the evil shit he did.
OLLIE AND SLADE TEAM UP CONFIRMED GET HYPE
>She's a year and 3 days younger than me
I don't see that happening. He might not be a super villain anymore, but he's still a mercenary. Unless there's an "enemy of my enemy" kind of thing, I'm pretty sure he and Ollie aren't going to be pals.
Son if you'd spent five years on a hellish island with only one goal - survive, your dick would be aching like all hell as well. To them you'd be Oliver Queen's dick. To the rest of the city you'd be someone else. Something else.
DC will never EVER make a super hero game that isn't Batman. Everyone has a ridiculous boner for him. I can't tell why, but thats the way it is
Thats not true and is even more not true in New52 where Wonder Woman is now strong enough to kick his ass
Yeah, but obviously he was still in love with Laurel the whole time even though he's cheated on her with every woman on the planet at this point. I guarantee he fucks that Chinese guy's wife by the end of the season as revenge for being held hostage.
Anyone here play infinite crisis?
It's a MOBA yeah but it's okay. lots of variants of heroes. atomic green lantern for one. gaslight batman and catwoman... mecha superman and wonder woman, and more.
Why are these people sucking Marvel's dick like their the champions of casting Diversity, when the team is literally just white people & every woman is just tough action grill T&A background?
>when the team is literally just white people
they have 3 green people in their movies
>& every woman is just tough action grill T&A background?
Scarlet Witch isn't a tough action girl and has no titties to speak of
in the movie. Comic SW is a board-certified titty monster
>You will never play a stylish action game as Wonder Woman taking on the hordes of tartarus swinging them around and going full warrior slasher on Ares and his crew
with Apokolips serving as the Bloody Palace and unlockable Big Barda
>You will never play a gtgfast game boom punching monkeys in the dick
>You will never play an open world Constantine game hunting down demons and suppressing random attacks in the street as you go about your alcoholic day
>You will never play a game starring Black Adam
This character skin you can buy in that game.
>Remember when DC only put out Batman stuff and ignored everything else? THAT WAS BE BARRY. IT WAS ALL ME.
Did you hear about the cinematic universe? They're gauging the popularity of the characters. First we'll get an Injustice 2 then maybe a worthwhile attempt at a Superman Game.
I wonder how they're going to address that in the new season.
>AFTER TWO YEARS ON A HELLISH ISLAND AND AN UNDECIDED AMOUNT OF TIME IN CHINA AS WELL AS OTHER LOCATIONS OF POTENTIAL IMPORTANCE MAYBE, I'VE COME HOME WITH A RAGING HARD-ON
