Veteran comic book and fiction author Ron Fortier has worked for years writing in a number of formats-including comic books, stage-plays, novels, short stories, movies scripts, and the exciting and burgeoning format of online comics and pulp stories. Ron burdens himself with an impressive list of credits, but the burden is one he happily carries into the future. Notable among his credits are The Incredible Hulk, the excellent Green Hornet series of the early 1990s by NOW Comics, and the Terminator: The Burning Earth series. He is currently involved with the creation of online comics and pulp-styled stories.
This year I’m thinking something simple. Something patriotic. Something that comes with a Lasso of Truth and matching bullet-deflecting cuffs (because I hate calling them bracelets).
Throughout the demo, players are forced to enter “detective mode” which basically makes Bruce Wayne adopt a heat vision of sorts. The main purpose of this is actually to see the grapple points. Yes, there are grapple points, and, no, it’s nowhere near as intuitive as Bionic Commando. Your aim has to be precise and most the time, even in detective mode, you don’t know where the hell they are. So you spend time scouring the room looking for places to throw your toys because you, in true Batman fashion, have no real powers to speak of. You’re basically G.I. Joe in tights and with a smug sense of entitlement [Editor’s Note: It’s almost as though he hates the character. Almost.].
Jelly Nuts : People are always jokingly calling Brian Gorie a wussy, but that kid is straight up tough… tougher than I am… he is mad young and mad small, but he takes bumps in the ring that would kill anyone else, and doesn’t complain one bit. I seen that kid fly over a ring do a flip in the air, land on his head on a metal ramp, and still get up and walk away from it. And at the end of the match, ICP get all the glory and Brian Gorie walks away a loser and doesn’t complain about any of it. Straight up in real life that kid is mad fresh!
Then there’s the matter of the ridiculous premise. Basically, Batman captures the Joker easily and brings him back to cozy, rural Arkham Asylum – it’s a lovely resort of sorts. Batman wonders aloud why the Joker came along all but willingly. The millionaire trophy child for why to hate the rich then finds himself the victim of a cruel game perpetrated by one Harley Quinn. To that end, like a repair tech for Trane, Eidos apparently specializes in fan service.
Tom DeLay may fit that bill, as he moved on to the next week of competition. The former Majority Leader is predictably already getting skewered by fakku for appearing on the show, after his controversial time in Washington. For all the snickers DeLay may have gotten, and despite his troubles with a broken foot, he is still on for at least one more week.
Some people get to the point where store bought shelves aren’t good enough, they need to redesign a room to line the walls with shelves to hold all of their stuff. A lot of houses have built in shelves, which is great, but even that only gets you so far.
It’s no secret a movie was in the works. Joss Whedon had a script and if anyone could have done it, it was him. But sadly enough, Joel Silver is just too busy not making a Wonder Woman movie. Keep your fingers crossed. I hear there’s an animated Wonder Woman film do out sometime next year (February 2009). Till then, get your Wonder Woman love on and check out the cool merch at the WBshop.
