Stolen directly from something Gloomcookie found, here’s a good new Daily Discussion topic since we haven’t had one in a while— describe your sex life with the name of a band. Above is DVDA, which you’ll have to google if you’re not familiar with the term, but… first!
Marvel, with a lot of help from Disney, has built itself a mighty movie empire from its comic books, one that may just keep going and going and going forever. DC and WB are trying to do the same, and now Activision, with its huge stable of popular and iconic video game titles wants some of that movie/video game/action figure action. Just because video game movie adaptations have mostly flopped doesn’t mean they always will. Just look at the brief live action superhero boom of the 1970s— they tried, most TV and movie adaptations from that time sucked, but eventually, it worked out. And with titles like Call of Duty, Warcraft, Starcraft, Skylanders, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Guitar Hero and pages more, Activision’s decades of development and acquisitions has made it a powerhouse of familiar titles with storylines that can possibly be milked for a long, long time, just has Marvel has discovered it can do.
I’ve had one other person mention that, though I’m not seeing it. It might be something with YouTube itself or Tumblr might be tinkering with things right now.
