Everything posted by SeveranceZero

  1. So, I thought this might be a neat little thread, so what inspired you to pick your current username? Was it random? Your actual name? A reference to a game/movie/song? Or anything else! While some of yours are pretty easy to guess, I'm sure others will have an interesting backstory (maybe!?) I shall begin with mine: I used to play World of Warcraft and when they introduced arena's I picked Severance Express as one of my arena team names. I thought it sounded cool and it had a decent meaning, to cut off quickly, as in quickly dispatching the enemy. Or something along those lines. Eventually, I got an Xbox and I liked the name so I stuck with the first part and cut off Express. My friend's name was VitaliusZero and so we thought it'd be fun to be the Zero clan, just for gimmicks. So I ended up with SeveranceZero! And now, I've grown to like it, so I use it as a common username. Yes, yes, my story was convoluted and a bit of a bore, but I do look forward to seeing what others post! PS: I am also Zero, Severance Package, Severus Snape, ME3 Hater among other things as various others have called me on here I welcome them all!

    Morality in Gaming

    Morals disappear in video games, in general in games I tend to pick the "good" versus the "evil" side because it usually to make the game more difficult. It's all too easy to just rush through murdering everyone in your path rather than only taking out a few at a time and sneaking around. Though I am no stranger to saving the game and massacring a town or two in games like Skyrim and Red Dead Redemption . Of course simply reloading cleans my slate! Anywho, in games I think it's fine as long as people don't carry it over to the real world! Being a cold blooded killer in a game does not equate to being one in real life. Games are just forms of fantasy where we can escape and just have some fun. However, when interacting with people online, sometimes their moral compasses seem to go haywire and they begin to harass and trash talk people just because. I guess they feel comfortable hiding behind their screen knowing there really aren't any repercussions for doing so. Interesting read

    I'm not even sure what to say about that except that my brain just melted 7/10 for creativity? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwhwuOIur-4

    Iron Man 3 Teaser Trailer.

    Looks good, I like that there's more sense of urgency, something that I felt was lacking in the second movie. It seemed too much like it was all jokes and good times and while it wasn't bad it wasn't as good as the first one IMO. This one definitely looks promising so far...though I hear people are complaining about Ben Kingsley playing Mandarin.

    Deadpool Vs Gangnam Style

    It's a great song! The performer knows it's a joke and just plays off of it! Also I found myself watching all those Deadpool videos on youtube the other day, they are quite entertaining if you have time to spare. Just in case you were interested here is the link to his page - Tadah!

    How David Jaffe Would Fix Resident Evil 6

    I mean after 3, RE became a more action oriented genre...but if you enjoyed 4 and 5 there's no reason to not like 6. I do like how there are 4 different story arcs, Leon's is more horrorish, classic zombies and such - I haven't played too much of his yet so not sure how the entire thing plays out and I have yet to play Ada's. Jake's is just action but had some good creepy moments to it and Chris's just reminds me of Gears of War 3 but it's still enjoyable. I like the different things they've done to the game and while I know it's not the best game, it's still another great addition to the RE franchise, IMHO (yes I know many disagree with me). However, I think someone here posted a while back that the creator or something of RE has realized that the series has strayed from it's horror roots and they were going to start/just starting working on new survival-horror game, that goes back to those same roots. So that could be a plus. Then there's also the nostalgia that current games just might not live up to. I played RE2 when it was first released for the Playstation, back when I was 8 I believe? So back then that was pretty damn scary for me! Especially playing at night with my brother, we would take turns going through the hallways - zombies arms popping out of the walls, the lickers dropping down from the ceiling, the noise of a groaning zombie you could hear but couldn't see or the way the game would go into first person as you enter or exit a place. Maybe things just don't phase us the way they used to and it's really hard to get that now. I don't know but maybe just some food for thought.

    Darklurkr23's New Dog!

    That's funny that looks exactly like my neighbors dog that I've been house sitting for. It's probably a given but if you can get him to be more active during the day then at night he will tire out and want to crash. Since he's a young dog, running with him could do the trick. Anywho, congrats on the new family member!

    The Expendables 2 Video Game

    I don't know, I didn't really care for the first movie and the game seems to be in the same vein, it's lackluster, at least to me. I thought it might be fun just to blow stuff up and such but other games already give you that and with what seems to be much better quality. Now, obviously it's only speculation on my part as the game hasn't been released but I don't really have an interest in purchasing it at this point.

    Pure Nightmare Monster Filmed In The Ocean

    That is both fascinating and extremely frightening at the same time, it makes me fear the ocean, haha! That reminds me of the thing/the blob...for some reason...I shudder to think what that would do to a person...or anything for that matter... I wouldn't say to kill it (Though I figure you are kidding anywho) but we should probably leave it be. Sometimes I just find myself looking at these videos on youtube/tv and thinking it's amazing how much we don't know about the world and what's actually out there.

    Welcome to GP - I heard being a realtor can be quite fun but equally as frustrating! One of the friends I used to play with would game at work but if customers came in he'd have to close his laptop and stop. It became the running joke that he would go "Afk customer" and he'd go MIA for 30-45 min. Though he says he loves his job and is quite good at it. Do you enjoy it? I used to play a lot of Warcraft RTS but then kind of grew out of it, I'd always try to rush

    Samuel L Jackson Fires Back Over Negative Avengers Review

    I mean I can see how he felt insulted but everyone is entitled to their opinion. He could have brought it up in other terms, without attacking the person so harshly. I guess sometimes when you are reacting to a situation, you act on impulse which is what it appears Samuel Jackson did. Not always thinking rationally then Reviews are reviews and I prefer honest ones than one's that are just trying to sell more tickets at the Box Office. I hate being mislead when going into a movie and it wasn't at all what I expected or what reviews said of the movie. That being said /shrug I guess it just hurt his ego a bit.

    Expendables 2 official trailer!!!

    Other than showing the entire damn movie in the trailers, it looks decent. I am a bit skeptical because the first one was so over-hyped and it was mediocre at best, you have so many action stars...they had so much they could have done but it just wasn't good. Though Stalone isn't directing this time so it could be better, I will reserve judgement until I see it. @ Cobra - No spoilers for you just check out the first one from Redbox!
