How I Learned to Hate Frank Miller’s Work
It is strange how many new games you can end up getting during the christmas season and only end up playing one at a time. Since November I pretty much focused solely on World of Warcraft. Now that I’ve unsubscribed to WoW, I’m playing Fallout 3 like mad. I still haven’t finished Deadspace or Gears of War 2, and I haven’t even started Fable 2. It all has to do with priorities.
I just purchased a new 4th Edition book called “Martial Power”. This is a book that actually interested me because it wasn’t just a 3rd edition book re-hashed for 4th edition. I was surprised with how much awesome stuff it added. Tons of new feats, powers, paragon paths, and even new class features to choose from. It really doesn’t screw around. Page for page, I haven’t seen a book this jam packed with content since the Unearthed Arcana.
I went and saw Frank Miller’s cinematic abortion that is The Spirit. It is the kind of terrible you have to see and soon because it has done so badly it might not be in theaters much longer. They made Denny Colt (The Spirit) downright unlikeable at times for the way he just goes from one woman to the next. The entire film was just a chance for the director to show off how pretty he could make a film and the actors to strut their stuff in whatever over the top way they felt like. It was all very masturbatory. But its the kind of terrible you need to see so you know just why it was so terrible.
I was able to get a super valuable gun and trick an evil scientist into giving me a bionic upgrade all within the same quest in Fallout. I really love this game.
