I bought dragon age inquisition and am loving a deep rpg once again.

Been playing that to my detriment lately. I'm really enjoying it even though it's my first DA game and the backstory is a bit overwhelming. Regardless, it feels good to play a Bioware game again though.

Thanks guys!  Looking at a color sleeve for my other arm and got me thinking.  Think leaving it alone will be for the best.

The other thing to consider with a color sleeve is having to touch up the color every few years.

I thought it was generally accepted that people just don't talk about Prometheus anymore?

I'm considering adding color to the sleeve.  Anyone have input?

I think it works well the way it is, in part because it's based on black & white illustrations to begin with. If you add color it might be difficult to obtain a sleeve that feels like one single cohesive piece while staying faithful to the original tones for each character.

Interstellar made me think that Prometheus is underrated.

Come on, Prometheus was more of a mess than this.

This thread is starting to read like an FBI dossier  :ganishka:

YESSS! :guts:

However after reading reviews online I believe I missed some key dialogue in the movie which make the events in question a lot more acceptable.

I liked it a lot better the second time I watched it and the fun part was, it didn't feel stale. You start noticing bits and pieces either shown or things said that come full circle.

Berserk Merchandise / Re: AOW taking Repainting Requests

i don't trade nor sell any of my statues once its in my collection its not going anywhere. i don't have alot of statues just starting to collect them but i have been collecting mcfarlanes spawn for over 10 years. i only have 4 berserk statues. i could care less if they start repainting the ones i have because i will never sell or trade them their value doesn't mean anything to me so bring on the repaints. so as i stated for collectors who trade and sell or need to know their piece is worth something (which is totally understandable) this is a huge problem. i don't agree with you for repaints devalue statues. if speaking about berserk statues you are probably more an expert then me but outside of berserk statues that just isn't true.

Respect your opinion and don't agree with you too.

I typed a whole lot and realized it just echoed everything already covered in this thread, so if you've read the thread, you'll know a little background of AOW's practices in releasing a product. My opinion doesn't come from the stance that my statues are 'investments'. That's a different kind of collecting and I wouldn't have put mine up on display if I practiced that.

That's not true.

The best of AoW jobs wouldn't be repainted (as they stated in particular statues) and you no need to worry about; their price is only rising.
As I mentioned before, they paint job is better and better with years and if I am able to choose between "original" 10yo statue and repaint, I would pick repainted one just because it is looks better.

By your own admission, what you're saying is that if AOW released a new product today you will not buy it because you know for a fact that they will re-release it a year or few down the line with improvements and you validated my point.

Anyway, I'm not here to argue. I liked the re-paint for Femto Rebirth and owned the original version of it. It's a bad reminder for people who bought the original statue from AOW while expecting it to be a limited and only run. Now, we all expect AOW to come out with re-paints and/ or improvements over original releases.

I really liked the focus on time dilation but I also thought the movie missed an opportunity to depict phenomena of spageittification

Didn't we get that during the "handshake"?

I saw Interstellar myself 8 days ago. I've grown to like it a lot more after ruminating on it for several days. My initial impressions were mixed. With that 3rd arc I couldn't shake the feeling that I had just seen an M. Night Shyamalan movie.

However after reading reviews online I believe I missed some key dialogue in the movie which make the events in question a lot more acceptable.

As others have mentioned, I thought the movie did an excellent job depicting the feelings of isolation and desperation that interstellar travel must invoke. I really liked the focus on time dilation but I also thought the movie missed an opportunity to depict phenomena of spageittification
