I smell ham-handed social commentary and a taste of a play for an Oscar. I can't put my finger on it, but I feel lie the movie that'll come out will not be nearly as interesting as that trailer makes it seem. I will bet this movie will get high critic reviews because seems the pros eat crap like this up, but most people will not like it.

lol, I think they have some dirt in there too, so what about earth bending? I think it was cause the comet seems to come so close to the atmosphere that it ignited it for a little while! Which should have just dragged the the thing to earth. Wouldn't it have been hilarious if the comet was just a placebo and all the fire benders were stronger just because they thought they should be?

Not for another 30 years, wasn't it a centennial event? I hope Aang does shed some light on the genocide of his people too. I just want to know. I think Aang's son Tenzin is the only official Airbender, so he better get to work with his wife to get some more airbenders going

Not even the wikia has any more cohesive info on that attack outside of ambush. If Teo noticed some of his father's designs on the tanks though they couldn't have had them 100 years ago. With the Western temple though you could just repel down to them, granted the Airbenders could just cut the ropes, if they had the gumption to do so.

I don't think they had the tanks. I kind of assumed the machinists made those for them. Teo, the kid in the wheelchair said that his dad had made the counterbalance for the tanks that let them flip when they got flipped. We did see that the comet did give them the ability to fly with rocket feet, so I guess we're suppose to assume that's how. Which means they must have set up around every temple launched into them and killed every damn one in like 15 minutes when the comet lasted. The thought of armies upon armies of firebenders going all rocket boots does sound pretty kick ass, but the rounding up kid thing, not so much.

Anyone got a server that needs some more players? I play on a friend's, but population is bleh and it keeps having so many issues.

Here's the link to the things the free players can get. What's it like.... Not sure how to really describe 7 years of content, and they're revamping the beginning experience for the new and old players so anything I describe there won't be like that when the game goes f2p. There are random zone events where zombie attack! If you buy the mastermind power set, since it's not open to Free players, you can have a little squad of zombie pets to fight for you.

Airbending did seem pretty over powered from the first series. I always wondered how the hell the Fire Nation killed all the airbenders so quick with the kind of power they wielded. I guess that's why there were like 80 corpses around Monk Giatzou's body when Aang found it at his home temple. Is it just me or does Spirit Aang's face have a kind of "Yeah, I'd tap that." smirk? I mean we all know he did have a thing for those water tribe ladies. I can't wait for some of the stories of the original teams life after the war. I really want to know about Toph. I mean she's going to have a daughter, but I can't see her settling down with anyone, I could totally see an adult version of her just picking someone and jumping them though,

I think the internet has made people forget the difference between stupid and funny.

I am a huge City of Heroes fan, been playing it for years, and soon you can too, absolutely free! Well most of it anyway. CoH is going to introduce a free to play model in the coming months. I would link to the page with all the info, but the site's doing maintenance. Free Players won't have full access but there is a lot of stuff available to them and even more aspects that can be purchased in micro-transactions. Hopefully this will bring in some new blood to stir up the game, but I figured I'd let everyone know if you ever wanted to try it.

lol, I lurk, just don't have much to say to most topics. This was so dumb it warranted comment.
42  General Discussion / Movies/TV Discussion / Re: Avatar: The Legend of Korra. on: August 04, 2011, 07:39:11 pm
Yeah I had seen that, does look pretty cool. I like that Korra seems to be using bending outside of her own more too. I hope they keep that up, Aang stuck with Air bending so much it hardly seemed like he was the avatar. I guess they feel like they had to give us so much awesome to make up for the live action movie.

Saw a year old topic on this, figured it might need an update. When I heard about this series at first I was a bit skeptical. I mean I wasn't a huge fan of the Book of Fire, and I was really just wondering where the heck they would go? What crisis could there really be for Korra to face that wasn't some rehash of the original series. I am a big enough man to admit that the wiki shut my skepticism right up: "

The new series will take place 70 years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender story arc, with all-new characters and settings. The protagonist of the new series, Korra, the next Avatar after Aang, is a hot-headed and rebellious young woman from the Southern Water Tribe who is "ready to take on the world". The series plans to follow Korra as she faces an anti-bender revolt while mastering the art of Airbending from Aang and Katara's son, Tenzin. After the conclusion of the War, Aang and Zuko brought people from the four nations together and founded the United Republic, creating Republic City, a large "metropolis powered by steampunk-type technology" such as cars and motorcycles... Anti-benders called "Equalists", who oppose the art of bending, utilize techniques such as chi-blocking to further their goals of revolution, led by Amon. Korra must fight rampant crime and the anti-bender revolt, assisted by two brothers, Mako, a Firebender, and Bolin, an Earthbender.

This is all snippets from the wiki. That really had me going for it though. I love the idea of people revolting against benders. Fear from the Fire Nation's attack would lead to people worrying which benders would be the next to exert power, and the fact that the anti-benders will be using chi blocking techniques really sweetens the deal and makes them feel like they'd be a credible threat to the benders. The advance in tech also sounds promising, I can imagine bending fights on motorcycles already. And the creators have taken on all writing duties, so it should be a streamlined story through 26 episodes with less filler than what the previous Avatar series had. I know that it could still all come crashing down, but I have to admit it sounds like it's going to be off to a damned promising start.

What the crap did I just watch? Seriously, what the hell did that have to do with anything? This movie looks like it's going to be a two hour long deleted scene from a Transformers movie.

I'm trying to give everyone a chance to get their intro posts in, one of the early problems with this rp was people running off on tangents that left too many people in the dust.
