    Funny enough I believe that actor actually played a Lex Luthor clone in Smallville, which initially lead to rumors of Lex being in Man of Steel.

    I am not too excited over the Fantastic Four movie either, though I would be if they could interact with the Avengers.

    Having to remove that "I posted this from my iPhone, btw I speak Latin" sig every time I quote you is a real pain, too, y'know.

    Sorry, it's that or have people assume I'm some sort of mentally decrepit drunk every time I post from the phone. :p

    And y'know having to quote and write posts from this damn thing is no walk in the park either.

    Oh god Dark Souls, I swear one of the first games in ages that just got me to throw away the controller and leave never to return.

    ....wait, another one?

    Although at least it has the look of the classic monster.

    I'm looking forwards to this one, based on the trailers.

    I'm going to reinstate my Tapatalk signature and customize it to "Sent from my brain using Tapatalk 2."

    My reaction to the Godzilla movie is also "Another one?"

    So I just got impaled by a Shiva statue in Pathfinder.

    You should watch where you're going so that you don't walk into pointy statues, especially if the game is called Pathfinder.

    The last American-made Godzilla film was the 1998 Roland Emmerich-helmed abomination with Matthew Broderick and most of the cast of the Simpsons, and there hasn't been an actual Godzilla film, Japanese cinema included, since 2004, ten years ago. I'd say it's about time we got another proper, respectful production of the greatest giant monster put to film, with modern effects and what looks to be a terrific cast. But that's just me loving my little niche genre. Especially since Pacific Rim re-ignited the giant monster love in my heart. :D

    ...the iguana Godzilla film was in 1998? No way. You're lying. I refuse to believe that I'm that old.

    Actually, as it so happens, I shot the statue with a crossbow bolt just to see what would happen. That awakened it, and dealt 17 damage in the process. Then, before I had the chance to react, it woke up, grabbed a spear, and impaled me, wiping out my hitpoints. The rest of the party rushed into the chamber and promptly roflstomped the Shiva statue to pieces. I narrowly avoided bleeding out.

    You shot at a statue?

    A statue? What are you playing, a flippin' Visigoth? Does cultural heritage mean nothing to you?

    IT WAS A SUSPICIOUS-LOOKING STATUE.

    And no, the barbarian in the party is a Sheogorath-worshiping half-Orc. Who has utilized me as a battering ram before.

    Huh, Sheogorath and Shiva. Have you encountered Cthulhu? Or Hastur?

    Edit: Or better yet, Shub-Niggurath?

    The inclusion of Lovecraftian entities was one of the things which I always enjoyed about Pathfinder. I've been away from Lovecraft too long.

    Nah. Because we don't really know that much about the Pathfinder setting, one player rolled a Sheogorath-worshiping half-Orc, and I rolled a disgraced Morag Tong operative. I just assume that I got spat out of some weird trans-dimensional rift while traipsing through Coldharbour or the Colored Rooms.

    And the statue wasn't explicitly called Shiva, but it had six arms and was located in an abandoned temple deep in the jungle. The writers of the campaign didn't really try to disguise what they were going for.

    Although, the player who rolled the Shiggy worshiper is planning to GM Call of Cthulhu sometime soon.
