Watchmen

With the world on the brink of anarchy, I’ve decided that a new leader is needed. Someone who understands the people, and desperately wants to throw them all into a massive furnace. Someone who can lead the planet into a glorious new golden age, where science is devoted in a singular attempt at making Pacific Rim a reality. A leader for life, who’ll go quickly mad with power because he understands that nobody listens to you when you go mad without power.

Folks, that person is me. Vote for the D. Vote for change. Vote for a man who’ll make your life better. Vote for a person who’ll break into your homes at night and sell your organs to zoos as a cheap meat substitute. HAAAAAARRRRRUUUUUUUU! VOTE D!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Commander Admiral Chief

    So guess who is talking to some strange call centre dude from Dell at the moment, LANGUAGE BARRIER, sheesh

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      ……….aaaaaaaaaaaaaand he dropped the call.

      Screw it, I’m going home

      • Commander Bob

        “dropped” 🙂
        Up for some Warframe this evening? I have 2 ODA keys.

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          Damn, we never got to the damn ODA’s

          • Commander Bob

            I know. I finished up just after 10pm. We can do them tonight or tomorrow. The keys aren’t going anywhere. I still need the Spira Prime still as well – T3 MD and Cap keys.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You might have to wait, there’s a biiiiiiiiig 4gb update coming – possibly even tonight.

          • Commander Bob

            Well, I guess I can’t really complain about new content.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            New frame with a quest, sabotage mission overhaul & a massive graphics & lighting overhaul – looks sweet.

          • Commander Bob

            Hopefully they revise the Void mission reward tables as well.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            That’s only supposed to come with update 19 last I heard, which is months away. I went 40min in a T3 surv last night looking for those damn Volt & Sarryn chassis – nothing. Bah.

          • Commander Bob

            Better than getting a forma bp. I’d be happy with a full forma at rotation C but a forma bp – save those for T1 and T2.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Anything is better than those. I’ve got 50 of the damn things just sitting there. The worst is getting them in T3 captures.

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Can you send those my way? I really need about 10 forma minimum now

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            LOL I was running around with Volt P last night…

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Uh huh – which gear that you don’t have should I run around with? I’ve got so much I can’t really choose. ;P

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Not much left, I’m catching up!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You might have to wait, there’s a biiiiiiiiig 4gb update coming – possibly even tonight.

      • VampyreSquirrel

        HAHAHAHA!

      • HvR

        Probably heard what an unresearched son of bitch you are.

    • VampyreSquirrel

      They’re about as fun as the Symantec call centre.

    • Mark Treloar

      You mean like speaking to an Indian sounding dude who then emails you and his name is Fabian Mark Whelan?

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      Looks like it is strafe jumping

      • Jan Prins

        Looks more like Satan’s cat…

  • Krabby Paddy

    Nah, I won’t vote for you. You don’t research your articles properly ;P

  • Ryanza

    For the person who responded to Bone Thugs yesterday. Not the best song. Not the best music video. But i like the overall message of the song.

    • nortee

      I responded to you Ryanza. I like this song quite a bit as well… One with a similar message is “If I Could Teach The World”.. Another awesome one is “Home”.

  • Ryanza

    Going through the batman v superman article comments you can see the americans commenting.

    So to America. Vote for Bernie Sanders you stupid fuckers.

    • Krabby Paddy

      I’m not sure if Darryn put anything clickbait and rage worthy enough to bring them here to read your valuable advice.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      You’re only saying that because Trompie wants to build a big DRM-like wall.

      • Ryanza

        “I am not going to pay for that fucking wall”

        • Ryanza

          this still has me laughing. I am not going to pay for that fucking wall.

  • Generic ZA

    Making Pacific Rim a reality … if only

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      I could do with a Jaeger for the daily commute

  • Original Heretic

    Idris Elba as Roland? Hmmmmm, uuummmmm, oookaaaaayyy…. Suppose that could work. If you look past the fact that Roland is actually supposed to bear a resemblance to Stephen King.

  • Ryanza

    There’s going to be a Dark Tower movie. I need to finish the damn books. Just can’t get past the beginning of the second book. The first book was so cool. The movie should be cool.

    Fuck it, why rest the books when the movies always turn out different.

    • Ryanza

      I can’t leave it there.

      Reading good stories in books will always be better than watching movies. Don’t stop reading.

      • miaau

        something we can agree on without reservation

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      They’re cool – I read the whole series a while back. So many references and call-backs to his other books, so if you’ve read those you’ll pick up on a lot. And the ending. Man.

  • HvR

    A vote for D is vote for scrodum

    • Hammersteyn

      XD “scrodum”

      • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

        I’ll be hanging around work until six ish like a boesman “scrodum”

        • Hammersteyn

          He’s referring either to the trolls on the Superman vs. Batman articles or the video Darryn made because of it

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            I know, I was also referring to it, it was a really good laugh though…

          • Hammersteyn

            ahh sorry 😛

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            Es, okay! 😛 b.t.w. I have been working on a bit of a script, which I’ve loosely based on a discussion we had yesterday, I hope it’s at least a little good…

            Edit: It might help if I ad the reference, We were talking about how good blood dragon was and how we miss games that are that good… sorry for leaving that bit out…

        • HvR

          I see the first butthurt commentator is back for round 2.

          Just called Darryn a MARVEL FAN

          https://media.giphy.com/media/WMfho5VxnIaOc/giphy.gif

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            Oh no… Here come the pitchforks…

          • Hammersteyn

            To the thread!

          • miaau

            But, is he not a HUGE Batman fan? I do not get it.

          • HvR

            According to a lot of unknown commentators on the Batman vs Superman article Darryn is clearly biased, hates Batman and thinks “with his scrodum”

            here is the highlights reel:

  • miaau

    DAWN OF WAR II: Yay.

    Still not as much fun as DAWN OF WAR
