  1. Thanks for forwarding this my way! I'm definitely in. Such an awesome blast from the past.
  2. [center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/mansion%20cards/charlottehamilton.jpg[/img][/center] Charlotte couldnâ??t move. She had watched the harpy feast on Jacqueline. She watched as Daniel Mathis killed the harpy, rising from the ground like one of the spirits. She watched Jacqueline rise from the dead only to flee, pursued by the spirits. Now she was alone. Tears streamed down her face and pooled in her eyes. She tried to blink them away to no avail. She was completely helpless. *** [center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/mansion%20cards/evelynnedecoeur.jpg [/img] [img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/mansion%20cards/wyattbishop.jpg[/img][/center] Evelynne ran. She ran until her lungs burned and her calves caught fire. She ran through the Mansion checking every exit, every window, every door. There seemed to be no escape. She ran to the staircase and froze as Wyatt Bishop rose from the dead. His chest heaved and a gurgle emerged from his lips. His eyes came to life and Evelynne knew that Wyatt Bishop could feel his body mending. His neck, which bent at an unusual angle, snapped back in place and Wyatt screamed. He continued to scream as his body healed, his bones mended and his lacerations closed. Evelynne watched all of this, transfixed by the magic. When it finished Wyatt looked at her. It was a dangerous look, and Evelynne knew in that moment she should have fled when she had the chance. â??YOU! You did this to me!â? â??No Iâ?¦â? â??YOU DID THIS!!â? Wyatt lunged at Evelynne and grabbed her by the throat. Evelynne tried to struggle, she tried to break free. She scratched his eyes and face but the wounds she inflicted healed instantly. She tried to scream but her windpipe was crushed. Evelynne died without as much as a whimper. [center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/mansion%20cards/death.jpg [/img] [img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/mansion%20cards/evelynnedecoeur.jpg [/img][/center] *** [center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/mansion%20cards/wyattbishop.jpg[/img] [img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/mansion%20cards/charlottehamilton.jpg[/img][/center] Wyatt couldnâ??t control his rage. It was odd, he was horrified and satisfied that he killed Evelynne. He knew she wasnâ??t responsible for his death but blaming her seemed so right. She needed to pay. They all need to pay. Wyatt wondered through the mansion and found himself face to face with Charlotte. She was so still, he would have sworn that she was a statue if tears hadnâ??t been streaming down her face. He hit her and she didnâ??t make a sound. She didnâ??t move. She didnâ??t do anything. The rage inside him built and he hit her again and again. He hit Charlotte until her face was a bloody mess. Until she was nothing more that a pile of meat and broken bones.

  3. [color=indigo]So I waited for Nathan...and waited, and waited. Now I am just going to post.[/color]
  4. [quote name='Anomaly' date='30 September 2010 - 11:46 PM' timestamp='1285904808' post='700829'] [font="Garamond"]K, yo, but come on I waited for SO long to see if someone else would post after you :C So it wasn't a vendetta but there had been no movement and it was the only thing I could think of, blahhhh.[/font] [/quote] [color=indigo]Oh, it's a vendetta. Actually its on now. I challenge you to a whistle off. Whoever can whistle the best through type wins... I'm just giving you a hard time. I'm sure I killed more than one character that wasn't ready to die in this RPG.[/color]
  5. Sorry, I was really just waiting for someone to post some more back story, bring another character back to life, or push the plot forward a bit before I killed a few folks. I was also struggling to figure out what to write since my plot device was killed within one post. Really Anomaly, you couldn't wait a few turns to kill the only character that has a connection to one of these specters? Ah, it isn't your fault, you just killed my plot line and I really am not sure where to take the story from here. I'll wait for Nathan to post and then I'll kill a person or three.
  6. [quote name='Phenom' date='16 September 2010 - 09:37 AM' timestamp='1284644220' post='700566'] And yet another trailer. Introducing the characters that've been revealed so far. [media]http://www.gametrailers.com/video/tgs-10-marvel-vs/704592[/media] [/quote] [color=indigo]I can tell from that trailer that this is one of those games that I get owned at when I am playing it online.[/color]
  7. [quote name='chibi-master' date='15 September 2010 - 10:28 PM' timestamp='1284604127' post='700545'] This is my unhappy face. No. NO. NNNNNNOOOOOOOO. The Pokemon look kind of...terrible. Also, what's with all the guns? You can have a giant blue water dragon or maybe a purple psychic cat thing, so why would you need to resort to bullets? [/quote] [color=indigo]I don't know, if someone was about to sick a giant blue water dragon on my I'd probably just shoot him. Kind of like if someone had a tiger in a cage and was about to open the cage door to let the tiger eat you. If you had a gun wouldn't you shoot him before the tiger had the chance to eat you?[/color]
  8. [quote name='Phenom' date='15 September 2010 - 07:32 PM' timestamp='1284593542' post='700538'] [url="http://tgs.gamespot.com/story/6275935/dmc-first-impressions?tag=topslot;thumb;1"]Trailer[/url] Capcom x Ninja Theory Being a big fan of the series and Dante since he his DMC, I have to say I'm not feeling the tone of the game nor am I liking his look. Being a fan of the hack n slash games in general, obviously I'm going to reserve my judgment until I see some actual gameplay footage. Thoughts? [/quote] [color=indigo]Eh, I thought the last DMC game was pretty damn good, so I didn't really need anything but a continuation of its awesomeness. Still, I'm intrigued. The trailer looked pretty cool and I'd be interested enough just by it if it was a brand new game (and not a sequel...sort of).[/color]
  9. [color=indigo]I love stand up comedy. Whether it be campy, thought provoking, topical, or just a great string of one-liners, few things are as wonderful as a well-written bit. So I thought we could use this thread to share our favorite bits. My first selection is this bit by George Carlin about flamethrowers. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4nknAzQPHE&feature=related[/media] [/color]
  10. [color=indigo]A few come to mind, the first is Spike versus Pierre Le Fou from [b]Cowby Bebop[/b]. I especially like the shadow scene where Spike is repeatedly "air" kicked. The second scene from [b]Bebop[/b] is Spike versus Asimov. The fight is okay, but it is really brought up a notch with [i]Rush[/i] playing in the background. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQvAHEloOpY[/media] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKn8HhuQpKI[/media] Another favorite of mine is Jubei versus Utsutsu from [b]Ninja Scroll[/b]. Pretty old school, but still classic. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uWIQ2yAPnQ[/media] [/color]
  11. [quote name='The Professor' date='13 September 2010 - 12:43 AM' timestamp='1284352996' post='700468'] [font="Comic Sans MS"]My point still stands in these cases. The Bible doesn't just represent Catholics who protect pedophiles. It represents all Catholics, as well as Lutherans, Baptists, Mormons and countless other denominations of Christianity who have absolutely nothing to do with what's being protested. It's like bombing an entire city to exterminate a small crime ring. If you want to protest the Catholic church's policies, picket them. It's more direct, tells them exactly what you think they're doing wrong and doesn't involve a disproportionate amount of unrelated people. Same with the flag burning. it doesn't send a message to anyone other than that the burner is a distasteful rabble-rouser. If the government is doing something they don't agree with, it's a citizen's right and responsibility to bring it to someone's attention in a coherent, respectable manner. Heck, the system is full of ways to do that, from proposing bills to public protest. No need to disrespect everything about something you only disagree with a tiny little portion of.[/font] [/quote] [color=indigo]I disagree with your point, and I don't believe that it stands in the cases described. You are stating that there are better ways to protest, I agree with you wholeheartedly, I find most non-violent forms of protest far more palatable than book burning. However, you state that by burning a bible or a flag you are disrespecting "everything" that it stands for. I disagree with that wholeheartedly. If you specifically and publicly state that you are burning a bible in protest of the Catholic church's protection of pedophiles, then that is exactly what you are doing, burning a bible in response to a specific issue. Are you going to offend some people that find your act distasteful, yep. But you would get the same response from a lot of people if you led a protest march and they shut down a road for you, people inconvenienced might find your act distasteful as well. You state that flag burning and book burning doesn't send a message or clarify a point. Again, I couldn't disagree with you more. A powerful symbolic gesture can garner you media time and face time with politicians. You can write a thousand letters and propose a hundred bills and never hear from a politician or have a media outlet pay you any mind. Rabble rousing is probably the most effective way to garner change.[/color]
  12. [quote name='The Professor' date='12 September 2010 - 11:50 PM' timestamp='1284349835' post='700466'] [font="Comic Sans MS"]Except for the most part, you'll find that the religious groups committing these atrocities (keeping with the Qu'ran example here) are radical extremists who are looked down upon by their more moderate contemporaries. They're not representing Islam as a whole, they're representing an insane faction who grossly misinterprets the Qu'ran's teachings and uses it as an excuse to kill anyone they don't agree with in the name of a God who never asked them to. Burning the Qu'ran isn't a nonviolent protest against Al-Quaeda, it's religious intolerance of the entire nation of Islam. Not every Muslim crashes planes into buildings. Every Muslim does, however, believe in the Qu'ran. Burning the Qu'ran is equivalent to insulting the entire religion in retaliation to a tiny little fringe group that the rest thinks is crazy. Does that seem right to you? Basically, I see it this way. A bunch of idiots are trying really dang hard to give their group a bad name, and another bunch of idiots is taking the bait hook, line and sinker, which reflects badly on their group in turn. It's a bad deal all around and it makes everyone within three degrees of separation of either of these groups look bad.[/font] [/quote] [color=indigo]You are making it sound like atrocities are the only reason to protest by burning books (again, not supporting book burning). A group could choose to burn bibles to protest the Catholic church's practice of protecting pedophiles or protesting the fatwa that forces women to wear a niqaab. You are stating that it shows religious intolerance, but it could also be an act that protests an intolerant action by a religious institution. This issue is obviously not one of a group protesting, but rather one of intolerance. That doesn't mean that anyone burning a holy book is being intolerant, just like how everyone that burns an American flag isn't doing it because they hate America. [/color]
  13. [quote name='James' date='12 September 2010 - 09:44 AM' timestamp='1284299074' post='700441'] [font=palatino linotype]See the quote from me below:[/font] I am simply pointing out that, in [i]my[/i] view, the broader issue [i]I[/i] have with this is the burning of [i]any[/i] book in general. I personally think that religion often gets a free pass simply because it is religion - it becomes immune to criticisms, both reasonable and unreasonable. So, for me, the issue is not that we're talking about the burning of a religious book - I am just as opposed to those schools in America that burned Harry Potter for equally stupid reasons. [/font] [/quote] [color=indigo]Pleiades asked requested some clarification earlier, so I thought I'd kill tow bird with one by clarifying my post with by responding to James'. While I too don't support book burning, I almost think that this is the reason while burning a bible or Qu'ran would have more meaning and is less offensive than burning a normal work of fiction. Burning a holy book can be a form of non-violent protest to towards the actions carried out by people that value that book. There are a lot of legitimate reasons to protest the actions of religious groups. There isn't a single logical reason to protest Harry Potter. On another note, I think it was some tiny churches in the US burning Harry Potter, not schools. Regardless, that was asinine. [/color]
  14. [color=indigo]I was reading an illustration magazine earlier today when I came across a feature on designing logos. It got me thinking, not about designing my own logos, but about logos that I love. There are iconic logos, the Nike swoosh, Appleâ??s apple, and Disneyâ??s Mickey ears, that need no text accompanying them. And there are also a lot of brilliant logos for smaller companies and organizations. I thought, with all of these incredible logos out there, we should have a place to share our favorites. So, here it is, the amazingly great and creative logo thread. [img] http://www.fnf.org.uk/layout/templates/fnf/fnfimages/logo.jpg[/img] Families Need Fathers is a UK charity. To be honest, I know nothing about the charity, but the logo is really clever. I love how the creator used the â??nâ? of the acronym as the shadow behind the two â??fâ?s. [img] http://logopond.com/logos/75561163c5458a74e2d09c626ff6d27b.png[/img] I saw this logo in a design magazine a few months back. I donâ??t know if Core Cider still exists, but Iâ??d buy it just for the logo design. [img] http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_7H-6DBZU16k/SngCAzhp3nI/AAAAAAAAAb4/7ZADkbm7mIw/s400/Kidrobot+logo+drjays.com+.jpg[/img] Kid Robot is a cool website with nifty stuff. I think their logo is equally as nifty, then again, Iâ??m a sucker for toons.[/color]
