Title: Not bad, not too good either.

So, another tourney ended. Individually I must say I am quite pleased with how my entry scored, altough as a team we could have, should have and one day will score higher and usurp the throne of those capitalistic swines.
I could blame a lot of factors. Perhaps the judges which were most certainly bribed. Perhaps karma? I will not blame those that participated with me. At the very least not Wolf Queen or Turducken. Last Hero is a whole new story though. I blame him for everything. Of course, one of the reasons I single him out is he is probably one of those two people that actually visit this wonderful place.
Now, as for my new review I might stray, if but for a nuance away from my favored game type. It is still sort of an adventure game but with platformer's elements tied in it. The game is Psychonauts and I enjoyed it greatly.
Now, before I go I leave you with this picture of a certain event in the Marvel Universe.
Personally I don't even follow the Civil war storyline but I still find it kickarse. Now let's talk about the two people who are considered "leaders" of the opposing factions within the Civil War.
First is Captain America. Now, being from a country outside of America, it would be only logical for me to do the modern thing and dislike him, no? However, I always liked Steve. He is like the Batman of the Marvel Universe. Like Bats, he too is the supreme fighter, and like Batman he does not have any super powers except the ones he honed so that his body would be brought to the peak of human perfection. The differences are: Bats works alone, Capt. works in a large team. Bats is more cunning and investigates his enemies while Capt is more "straight to the face" sort of person. Bats is arguably more intelligent, but Capt. doesn't tire and doesn't age(or his age slows down, I forgot) which gives him an edge in combat since he could tire Bats out. However, like Superman in his own universe, Captain America is the true "hero" you could say. A role model for all the other heroes to play along with. Even though he sure had his own ups and dows, he is still one of the most recognisable and respected heroes in the universe.
The other character is Iron Man. Now him I always liked. What is there not to like? A multi billionaire playboy who does the following: Sleeps with beautiful women, gets incredibly drunk all the time, saves the world, helps babies seals. Power wise, Iron Man is one of the most inconsistent and potentially one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe for a simple reason.
Using technology he can make himself strong enough to knock out Hulk with a single punch, battle it out with Thor, and a plethora of other things. Though in the hands of writers they can also make him weak like a kittena nd losing to laughable opponents(I think he once got his arse handed to him by sodding Mole man).

You have reached the final frontier thus overcoming me and LH a long time ago old man. You are just exploring new territories. Also, I don't think I recognise them all myself. The F4 is there with the exclusion of Ben, Hercules, Tigra, Iron Man and Captain America, She-Hulk, Spidey...then something that can be either Deadpool or Daredevil.
