  1. Vertigo's Fables.

    Also: Jack of Fables.

    (I also love anything by Geoff Johns. Seriously. The guy is like a writing machine. And Kurt Busiek is one amazing writer as well. If you want to see superhero stories with literary depth, I highly recommend the Astro City series.)

  2. I am, was, is an idiot.

    My freshman year of college, I had brought my gamecube games to college with me, but forgot my memory card with all my save data. I had an old gray one with 59 blocks and no save data, so we just started a new save in order to play some multiplayer. Smash Bros. Melee was a gaming event and we played it for the first few weeks of the term.

    I still didn't know my housemates too well. One of them was an incredibly good Melee player, beating my butt up and down the floor everytime we played. My card was normally plugged into the machine. So when I fired up a new game (Baten Kaitos Origins) I had to delete a few save games to make up room for it. I chose smash, thinking my friends wouldn't mind now that I had my real card.

    Without my knowing it, the guy who rocked at Smash had gone home and gotten his memory card, with eveything unlocked on it. I deleted his smash save, thinking it was mine.

    Needless to say, when he confronted me about it, I was quaking with fear. He was angry, but surprisingly forgiving. While he could never get his hours back or his entire collection of trophies (yeah, he had all of them), he did beat and unlock everything within two days and then for good measure, unlocked a few things on my melee save file on my actual memory card.

    And surprisingly, he and I became quite good friends.

  3. My only complaint so far is the cave level with limited lighting. I hated that shit in Donkey Kong Country and I still hate it now.

    Oh man, I love those levels! Usually I rush through levels but those dark ones force me to be patient and take my time. And I can push my teammates into the abyss.

    That's always alright by me. ;)

  4. WHY DOES EVERYONE ON THIS SITE HATE MARIO SUNSHINE I thought that game was pretty rockin'.

    I loved that game. Explored the world in and out. SO much more fun than 64, in my opinion. The world was just so well crafted.

    And FUN!

  5. I'd say he won't be happy until the next Zelda is released, but he'll probably end up complaining about that too.

    Gosh, all Nintendo does is remakes! Gosh! Ugh! Come up with something original!

  6. So nobody else really hated the Black Freighter story but me? I thought it was tedious and boring. I understand its connection to the main plot and the reverberations of the theme, but I still thought it was ultimately too wordy and I wanted to get back to the real story every time. Now I skip it when I reread Watchmen.

    PM me if you add me- I have peaches and I'm always willing to go to someone's town/host someone at mine (if they bring another fruit as a toll! haha)

  8. I heard about this in my History of Superheroes class today when Gail Simone came in and talked about Birds Of Prey and her current writing on Wonder Woman.

    She knows what's going to happen, apparently, and acted excited about it. She also mentioned that while there are editorial mandates, they're extremely rare and the choice to "kill" Batman was made a long, long time ago. The writers have a considerable amount of freedom.
