Yesterday, one of our rogues had their weapons break in the middle of a WotE fight.

Fortunately, an Engineer quickly summoned Jeeves mid-combat and saved the day!

I think Batman's pretty dumb, so I may be biased. What did you think of the "oh I have to manually fly this thing out of town -- OH WAIT" "twist" they crowbared into the end of DKR?


Pretty sure that ending was telegraphed in multiple points in the movie, once by Lucious and again by Alfred.

Also, Bane is a great Batman villain, he is not one if you only know him from the pre-Dark Knight trilogy movies or simply think of him as the guy who broke Batman's back. If you know his comic book history and how he has been used there the handling of him in the movie was great.

Wanting brutality from Bane shows he doesn't really know Bane and how he's been used in the comics. Both Talia and Bane were the mastermind of their own plan and the dragon of the other's plan.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Bane was awesome in No Man's Land, specially the novel... the guy is a genius bruiser, he is wicked cultured, in spite of being born and raised in a jail

And yeah, the auto-pilot thing was lampshaded prior in a conversation Bruce and Fox had.

Someone I work with just commented I am too perky today. I explained it's because we close at 5, so I don't have to deal with the post-5-o'clock crazies. But don't worry, I'll be back to being surly on Wednesday.

Two people who heard me just burst into laughter. :lol:

That's why engineering should be mandatory for hunters. Given that then volley and now multishot do extra durability damage to guns/bows, having a Jeeves is almost a necessity. I've had to repair mid-fight quite a few times in the past, where none of my other gear was damaged, but the weapon suddenly busted.

Nada.

Depending on where you work though, it can be a great day to work, as you get credit for being a good trooper, the office is mostly deserted, so it's quiet and you can get work done.

And it beats going to the malls the day after Christmas... /shudder

Yes, the autopilot thing was lampshaded, and anyone who hasn't been under a rock for the last 20 years of cinema saw that coming before they finished parking at the theater. My objection is largely "oh look how devastated Alfred is look how MOVING and EMOTIONAL this is!" and I'm thinking "oh fuck you Mr. Director this is so stupid and manipulative and shallow."

And re: Bane being incredible: sure, in other works he might be excellent, but in DKR he was boring and ponderous and really kind of detached. As someone with no knowledge of the lore, the came across as kind of silly.

Saw the queue bug in action at the Brawlers Guild for the first time this morning. Watching someone fight the Leper Gnome Quintet, then suddenly another player ports in and starts Yikkan Izu. Then the game decided that fight just wasn't epic enough, so it pulled in me and spawned Epicus Maximus on top of it all. :lol:

They could always say it is intended, and call it the "hard-mode" :D
