Honestly this one varies a lot, especially depending on which country the person is from and what age they are. Could be deep, could be casual, could be a starting point with a "see how it goes" mentality.

Just get 6 enerloops and always cycle them on charge. That'll save you grief. Like how I always keep one PS3 controller on charge, then when the one I'm using goes dead, plug in the other one. That way I've always got one ready. I was never a big fan of the xbox controllers myself but different stro...

I actually wouldn't mind seeing a full face mask, something along the lines of the Batman Beyond costume (which was Bruce's first, so it might help stop fans' bitching. Probably not though. The red bat logo could look pretty good onscreen too.

As it's a Batman/Superman movie not strictly a Superman sequel I don't think the overshadowing thing should be an issue. Superman may get a proper sequel on his own at some point. Also, there's no reason Batman shouldn't be significantly older than the other Justice league members. In fact, the age ...

Ben Affleck was actually really good in Daredevil. Watching the director's cut showed me that it was actually poor editing and effects that made him look bad.

So Ben Affleck is the new Batman

Anyone getting upset over it?

I'm not, I think he'll do just fine.

I don't mind a good FPS with decent single player, but for the time being I think Spec Ops: The Line has ruined the genre for me for a while. Not much can mtch up to that.

Just had a go of Payday:The Heist.
Not for me. If you're into playing FPS online (especially if you have 3 similarly inclined mates) I can see how it would appeal though.
Think it'll be a long time before any FPS can live up to Spec Ops: The Line for me though.

I (almost) never actually buy DVD or Blu-ray now. Over here it's the equivalent of about a dollar to rent a movie for a week, or 50 dolars to buy one. Even a "sale" dvd usually costs $15-$30 dollars. Factor in space concerns and rental just makes way more sense. The nice thing is that I've managed t...

Currently Back In Black. If you have an iphone there're plenty of apps that let you make ringtones from MP3s. Kind of want to switch mine over to Knight Rider, just because I think it makes an appropriate ringtone somehow.

I was a big fan of the show when I first watched it. Haven't watched it in a long time, but from memory snappy dialogue and a cast that played well together elevated it above most other stuff that was on at the time. But on balance, I'd rather have half a season of stuff I really liked, plus one mov...

I generally get that vibe from him too.
I also love awful awful B movies (kind of fits the so bad it's good category, except I enjoy them without a shred of irony).
One more but it's more of a question. Is it ok to like Supernatural? 'Cos I feel like it shouldn't be, but I like it anyway.

A couple of Hugh Grant Romantic comedies. About a Boy, Love Actually, Bridget Jones Diary (despite not even slightly rooting for the titular character).

Not even slightly excited about either console yet. In fact, given the way they're increasingly becoming crap PCs (a trend that really started with the current generation) I'm getting more and more attracted to the idea of just building a gaming pc and abandoning consoles. Console-wise, my next purc...

All the Marvel and Star Wars Zen pinball tables are on sale on iOS this weekend, so it Mass Effect: Infiltrator.

Also, Steam's May the forth Star Wars sale includes KOTOR 1 and 2. So tons of new games for me.

Downloaded Catherine off PS+ this week. 2 things. One is that it's a pretty tough game (especially those frustrating boss levels). Two is that it's just about the most messed up game I've played. I have the advantage of having lived in the Japanese culture long enough that I understand where it's co...
