I'm looking for some fun multiplayer games with which to play with my friends. System isn't much of an issue, though I don't think anyone has a PS3. Some games we have enjoyed previously include:
  • Dokapon Kingdom
  • Mario Party 2 on 50 Turns
  • Sins of a Solar Empire
  • Jeopardy on the Sega Genesis

I'm not looking for really short, match based games like Street Fighter, and game time can span anywhere between 20 minutes (Jeopardy) to 30 hours (Dokapon). Games must support 3 or 4 players.
Please give me some obscure local multiplayer games!

So E3 is here again and that means we get to see all the fancy new games coming out.

Microsoft Press Conference
So pretty much all they did was show some sequels to games I don't care about, then a bunch of Kinect games, most of which didn't seem all that deep and were more aimed toward a family audience. They also showed off a new XBox 360 model that I think looks really ugly and has built-in wireless which they should have had 5 years ago. Here are some videos:

EA Press Conference
I didn't actually watch this but it looks like they just showed off more sequels for Need for Speed and Medal of Honor and Madden. Yawn. Here's some videos anyway.

Ubisoft Press Conference
No Beyond Good and Evil 2, sorry.


Nintendo Press Conference
The best press conference. Nintendo managed to pull out some surprises and avoided spending too much time of stupid stuff like Wii Fit.

Sony Press Conference
Didn't watch this, since I don't have any Sony systems. Gran Turismo 5? That's cool, I guess. Twisted Metal? I think that game was big when I was in middle school. Gabe Newell came and showed off Portal 2.

Other Games

Hey, Super Street Fighter IV was released a few weeks ago and I've been playing it a lot recently.
I am also wondering if any of you guys have been playing it.
Do any of you guys follow the tournament scene? I'm not good enough to fight in them but I like to watch matches when I can. Anyone interested in watching a tournament, one is going to be streaming matches online tomorrow (June 5) at Noon (EST) here: http://www.justin.tv/ceo2010

Also, I need some good people to play against, preferably those who don't main Ken or Ryu (I fight enough of those in random matches). I main M. Bison and I'm working on Cody and Balrog a bit. My XBox Name is LuciusAxelrod

LET'S FIGHT!

Here's some video of a recent match between Justin Wong, probably the best player in America, and some other guy.  There's no reason for this to be here, I just wanted to round off the post.

Wolverine:

Iron Man:

Wolverine and Iron Man are getting animes.  You may be thinking to yourself "how is this any different from The Animatrix or that Batman one," well the difference is that these are being developed as 12-episode series for Japan instead of as Direct-To-DVD features.  Is this a good thing?  Who knows :fogetshrug:
The animation is being done by Madhouse but it is mostly being written by Warren Ellis.  These two animes are set to premier in Japan for the Spring 2010 anime season.
There are two more Marvel animes in the works, but they haven't been announced yet.  Bets are that one of them is not going to be Captain America in WW2 beating up Japs.

imo the animation from the above trailers looks pretty good, but I wish the characters didn't look so tall and thin (especially Wolverine, whose claws also look like they're coming out of his palms or something).  Wolverine fighting ninjas in Japan is a pretty standard thing for him, but Iron Man fighting caped pirates is pretty weird.

In my opinion, there is not enough comic book talk on this forum.  This topic will help you comic-impaired to obtain large amounts of comic books at no cost (this is totally immoral).



Huh?  Download Comic Books?
Yes!  Using the magic on the Internet, one can download many things, including scans of comic books, whether they are old or new, DC, Marvel, or Indy!


What Will I Need to Download These Comic Books?
Most downloads will be in BitTorrent form,  If you do not all ready have a BitTorrent client, I recommend uTorrent.


How Do I View These Comic Books?
All comics you download will either be .CBR or .CBZ files.  To view these files, you should use the program CDisplay.  CDisplay is really neat program with a ton of features to make reading comics comfortable for you.  It's also great at viewing manga!
However, CDisplay is not actually necessary.  CBR and CBZ files are just renamed RAR and ZIP files.  You can extract the images from the CBR or CBZ file by simply opening them using WinRAR (or similar program) or by renaming them to be .rar or .zip files.


Where Do I Download Comic Books?
BitTorrent Sites Dedicated to Comics:
ZCult Tracker B - Official DCP Tracker (read below)
ZCult Tracker N
ZCult Tracker X

You can also find comic books at more general BitTorrent sites, such as:
ISOHunt
Demonoid
And many others.

You can also find RapidShare (and such) downloads here:
RapidSearch /co/ - This is an archive of all the RapidShares posted on 4Chan's Comics and Cartoons board.  This is not a very reliable way to get comics, but sometimes you can find a gem.


What is DCP?
DCP is a group that scans the new comic book releases every week and puts them up for download.  If you're following a series as it's being released, this is where to find the newest issue.


That's really all you need to know!  Get out there and start downloading like a mad man!  Don't forget to support the industry and buy comics you like!
If anything in this post is unclear, or if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask me.
