BatmathI enjoyed the Nolanverse Batman films a lot, but I've just run the numbers:Batmath2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bruce trained for 7 years (Alfred mentions his absence in Batman Begins) and he sulked for 8 years between Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises. Between that, and including the short time in Dark Knight Rises in which he wore the cowl, Nolanverse Bruce was only Batman for about a year, tops (Joker's line "Let's rewind a year" tells us this).
One. F**king. Year.
"Caped Crusader" the Nolanverse Batman is not.
He is "Bat Temp".

I believe that Minecraft is the future of massive multiplayer games, and I'm surprised that none of the big developers/publishers have cottoned onto it yet.
They look at Minecraft and think its success is down to its business model, or to its blocky, retro charm.
It's down to the fact that you get out of it what you put into it.
With a MMORPG, there are pre-scripted quests. With Minecraft, you set the quests yourself or others.
User created content is the key. All you have to do is provide the players with the tools to build.
There are two types of gamer: wall builders and wall breakers.
Wall builders are the ones that spend an age in an RTS game getting their base just right. They play SimCity and act as Dungeon Master during an RPG.
Wall breakers are the type to follow the mission brief. They get set a quest and they follow it. They're the Call of Duty crowd and they're never more happy than when

Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.

MMD Rules Revised. Please ReadLately there's been confusion over the readme notes on models that come with both an English & Japanese version having different rules/conditions in them.MMD Rules Revised. Please Read3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You're probably thinking it's not fair that the Japanese version has more freedom with editing models than the English one. Then there's this assumption that Japanese modellers are racist. This is not the case. It is merely a misunderstanding and I'll explain it here.
When overseas users break the MMD rules it's hard for the Japanese modellers to handle it because there is a language barrier. It's very difficult for a modeller to talk to the culprit when they both come from a different culture. It's a huge burden for them to go through a language obstacle just to reason with someone who can't speak the same language as them, let alone try to resolve a situation where rules have been violated. On the other hand, when the culprit and modeller are both Japanese, it's easy to resolve because both people are from the same culture so there

No, really!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to the rebellion/revolution, the British Government changed the way it conducted itself so as to ensure such an incident would never happen again.
Had they not, a revolution similar to that seen in France, 1789, would have very likely occurred on home turf.
The French leadership maintained their "all powerful" façade, and in assisting the American colonies, spent a fortune. This further angered their already irate people, who, in seeing that it could be done, decided to have a little revolution of their own.
So, with the economy booming thanks to renewed transatlantic trade between Fair Blighty and the newly formed United States and with Britain's arch enemy France focused on tearing itself apart, there was nothing to stop the Empire's expansion.

The Derpy Issue Part 2It's come to my attention that Hasbro has, indeed, changed Derpy. In the iTunes version of "the Last Roundup" where she finally talks and Rainbowdash says her name, Derpy no longer has "derpy" eyes (although they do seem to occasionally be crossed), has a different voice actress, and Rainbowdash doesn't say her name.

Sadly I can't get behind the bronies on this one. You guys screwed it up for the rest of us and I have no sympathy for your plight.

NEWS STORIES (now with more sources!)George Lucas now says Hans Solo never shot first... ever. Even in the 1977 original movie. According to him he had filmed the scene in question from all angles and due to faulty editing it appeared as if Hans shot Greedo and was a "cold blooded killer." This portrayal of Hans apparently rankled in George's mind for such a long time that he attempted to "correct" it in all subsequent re-releases, much to the chagrin and annoyance of Star Wars fans. I could go into a lot of crazy detail about how his wife edited a lot of Star Wars because George can't edit his films, and the subsequent re-edits are possibly George trying to distance himself from his divorce and painful emotional memories (hence why Jedi aren't allowed to "love" in the prequels but are perfectly ok to do so in the originals)... but that would probably bore the crap out of people and I'm honestly just sick of George continuing to change things. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/115773-George-Lucas-Says-Greedo-AlwayNEWS STORIES (now with more sources!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

You know, there was a time when I wanted to change my name to ANYTHING other than SonicRocksMySocks. I thought it up when I was 15 without realizing I'd be saddled with that alias for potentially a lifetime.
When I started gaining renown on the internet, there was even a time where I considered making a new DeviantArt account JUST to change my username, but by then my reputation was already cemented. It's silly and childish and doesn't fit a 20-something artist who is trying to get serious about her art...
After working on my 8th DeviantArt anniversary flash and going back to my roots, it sort of dawned on me.
No other username fits me better.

Okay, this is the thing. deviantART has a lot of very talented artists of the fandom that contribute with great drawings/ comics/ music/ literature, but they don't always get as much support as they deserve.
