541 Skylanders Figures?

I was just counting the number of skylanders figures and counting all the variant figures they released a total of 541! Damn that is a serious number of figures.

About that Ghostbusters Movie

I am so tired of seeing all these posts about how fans are hating on the ghostbusters remake because of it being a woman cast.

Please pry your head out of your ass and understand the reason people are showing so much “hate” for the movie so far IS because it is a movie remake that was not needed. They have been trying to do a third movie for years.

Then they was saying the movie was a reboot and did not follow the original movies. But yet the very first movie trailer released it say “30 years ago four scientists saved new york” so even the production team (including the people doing trailers) have no idea what direction the movie is following. It almost seems like the entire crew was straight out of Junior High/High School and this is the first time working in the industry.

As I have said before I will wait for the video rental from RedBox to watch the movie I refuse to pay more then $2. Which is the same thing I pay for most crap movies from RedBox or Family Video. Like I just rented a movie based on the Slender Man game for about that.

Tetris Movie?? Why?

So they are actually going to make a movie based on the puzzle game Tetris. And the saddest part about it is they have a $80 Million dollar budget for the movie. I have no idea why this movie is being made but with them making Pixels who knows whats next.

NintendoAge Elite ban Tim Atwood

Once again the elitist admins at a forum show their ego. This time it is NintendoAge doing it. Admins banned user Tim Atwood from the forum for a temp week, this being the same Tim Atwood that was showing his large collection of shipping boxes of sealed games including 6 sealed copies of the ultra rare nes game Stadium Events and refused to sell them to just anyone. He has been looking for the proper people who will enjoy them and not just resell them. Tim recently gave on user of the group a sealed nes game of Kirby’s Adventure for the total sum of……$1! Yeah you read that correctly a brand new sealed nes game that is hard (but not impossible) to find in sealed condition for $1, the person said it was one of his favorite games and Tim hooked him up.

To what ever admin decide to ban Tim from the forum you have shown yourself that you are one of the people who should not be trusted with admin status and I hope something happens to your account.
