@Shawnbaby: That's hardly an excuse, if anything makes it worse. If it's on the table long before SSM how did no one notice this? They're both as canon as each other but one is getting overlooked as it was written far better than Marvel is used to.

That was a bit harsh, but I'm so burned out on Marvel and DC now - regular ass Batman is just about the only book I can read after a year or so of finally being able to buy comics as they come out instead of getting decade old collections or worse just pirating what I can't find / they don't want to take my money for.

The trailers have already ruined like 80% of Iron Man 3, like what is there left to find out? Iron Man wins at the end?

I wish writers would just talk to each other more,

"Hey guy writing Spider-Man, is there anything that I need to take into account writing this massive crossover thing your character is in?"

"Nope."

Like Pete got the Avengers involved when he had enough of Punisher killing people, and now he's killing instead... Dammit as soon as I'm getting used to this there's another reason it's dumb.

Dante's abilities and limits are the same as all anime characters - about as insane as they are intermittent. He's effectively punched the devil in the mouth while getting knocked around by an androgynous teenager with one arm in a sling.

I really don't care as this issue doesn't affect me.

I'm a terrible person.

Some friends of mine have had a civil partnership for a while and they're really psyched to get married for real. Good for them.

These are all really dumb reasons to not like a fighting game.

F* that noise Aquaman TILL I DIE.

The entire tourney thing is stupid and here are several reasons why:

  • It's served it's purpose already - game footage of each character which introduced a new fight mechanic each time
  • Mostly meaningless anyway as there's no meters on screen
  • The character aspect doesn't matter, we have no idea who is controlling these avatars
  • It looks like AI anyway, if so usage of moves is just a demo of
  • When Batman inevitably wins, he still might have terrible match ups and little options when actually playing
  • New features are totally glossed over - Clashing "Supers" from the GA v HG video, how do they decide what wins / do Supers have more or less priority? Things like that are a massive deal.

I stopped reading Cap cause it was the first time I was buying it on release and it seemed so far fetched from the Bucky stuff I got in collections. I'll try again later but for now it's not for me.

As for why I stopped Spidey, yeah I was pissy that Pete was "gone", but again I've just started reading comics on release as my income has caught up I would like to read a god damn Spider-Man story - and after having maybe an hour conversation with friends on how there's so many Spider-Man comics that if a kid says to their mother "I want a Spider-man comic", which one do they buy?

ASM right? Well that's gone, so it's Superior. But why is Doc Ock controlling Spider-Man? Maybe Ultimate - who's Miles Morales? Plus it's nothing like the Ultimate on the TV, maybe get the Ultimate Spider-man that's a comic based on the tv show that's based on a comic. Avenging has the same issue with Superior, but it'd do a good enough job introducing the extended universe. But again - it's barely a Spider-Man story as it always focuses on how Spidey interacts differently with the team-up of the week. Then there's an almost Batman level of tie-ins.

So you could say it's a vote with your dollar, but I know I rage quit the series. As I get over it I'll almost certainly get it in a collection.

Overall, I'll bear with a series but if I find it dumb or jarring or just not what I expected / wanted I'll stop buying.

Doesn't Dragonrend force mortality on immortals?

I've started seeing how lazy like 95% of all the episodes are, Ecclestone was probably the most consistent of the new Doctors, Tennant was mostly good but when it bombed it was the absolute worst.

As far as Smith he's a victim of how it's being written as more kid friendly, when he gets to play it how he wants it's really good but its mostly tweed and silliness which is borderline unwatchable.
