What on earth did I just watch?

That promo always makes me chuckle.

Also very amused by the "Do not eat" on the box when I opened it this morning.  :lol:

My Bandai pot noodle arrived from the Land of the Rising Sun today.
The dumbest yet coolest Objet de désir of all time.


I challenge any of you - any of you - to watch this promo video and not purchase one immediately:


There would have been no DoC without AW, plus I'm docking a point for the appearance of the Dark Judges, a step too far in my view.

I thought it was a great idea, just wasn't keen on the follow-through.

Still, I gotta vote Day of Chaos.

1) City of the Damned
2) Trifecta
3) The Cursed Earth

Paul Marshall on Firekind, and his early work on Tyranny Rex.
Never better.

I do remember Alexander Ludwig accidentally dropping his towel once, and the extra sitting beside me trying to alert him by calling out 'BJORN! BJORN! BJORNIE, YOUR TOWEL!'


I got pissed with some of the senior crew one night in the beer garden in The Harbour Bar (™ The best bar in the world), and they shared an amusing anecdote about Travis Fimmel; All cast and crew regularly received a bun and apple for their lunch break, and a horrible waste of good, natural food an amusing pattern developed over time wherein everyone would just chuck their apple on the ground and eat the bun.
One afternoon Ragnar decidedly to jokingly lob his apple at a group of extra's, but misjudged his own strength and skulled some poor young wan. She was ok though.

A few other harmless but less than savory stories shared also, nothing I can repeat unfortunately.

I mean, did people realise that she wasn't REALLY Hilda?

Forget about that and answer one simple question; why did you let them capture Ragnar, you useless bastard?

Tour of Duty.

The negative impact is old farts grumbling, but I’d wager they are relatively few in number but loud of voice.

I suspect this is very much the case, too. I don't think there's enough slack in 2000AD's circulation for Rebellion to continue with a strategy that was costing them sales in any significant numbers, so I think you're right… it's probably a vocal but very small minority.

Or looking at it another way - it could be banked upon that enough long term readers will suck it up / shrug their shoulders rather than have 4 gaps per year in their unbroken collection spanning 30 - 40 years.

The day you start underestimating nerd obsession is the day George McFly knocks you out cold.

Take her handy, Smith.

Utterly banal, lacking 2000ads humour or intelligence. Honestly I’m up for more Skip Tracer than this.

I'm with ya on this, unfortunately.

Give the character back to the ever inventive Dan Abnett or newly reconstructed Hogan Droid, or hang up her knickers unisex full body suit.

I was the mad one, and the experience of hearing my brother asking what the feck I was doing, then me saying "what are you on about? Shoot them! Shoot them!" was a true highlight of 40+ years of gaming.

Hang on a sec - you don't even have a brother.

I was a bit let down with Dead Space 3 at the time, and never went back to revisit it after completing the basic game, even after some lengthy DLC was released.
Could be I missed out without the co-op experience.

It's definitely a franchise I would like to see make a comeback - lots of potential.
