I work out 3 times a week.  Right now I have the 2nd stage of a bad cold so no gym for me today.  Perhaps on Wednesday.  I have bad shoulder joints so I can’t lift what i used to be able to lift but glad to still look better than allot of guys my own age.  Plus I have those amazing genetics that have me looking ALLOT younger than I really am.

This was taken about 3 years ago but my body and face are about the same.  I have a bit more gray now as it’s starting to really come in but the face is holding up pretty well.  Belly IS going down since starting at Crunch gym but it will take a little while longer.  When the cold is gone or under control I’ll hit the gym and get back to work.  I just don’t want a relapse this early in the season! 

You are a gorgeous beyotch, Rammy! :D

I love when my st8 friends compliment us gay boi’s and don’t feel weird about it!  Truly cool!  HUGS

What’s weird about it? We’re apparently secure enough about ourselves to appreciate beauty no matter what the source.

But… how can you deny the man’s gorgeous beyotchness? No man could. He’s just too… RAMWolffy!

:D

To quote one of my favorite Scottish assassins, he’s dead sexy.

Tried doing an online search on ‘Superhero 2020’. Didn’t seem to find anything. Perhaps it’s gone out of print, which would be a pity. Does it have a whole list of powers for you to pick from as you design your hero/ine character?

Some of the weaknesses listed in Superworld which you can assign to your heroes/heroines are just hilarious, by the way. (In Superworld you roll the seven statistics for your hero/ine [strength, dexterity etc], and their sum total forms a pool of points which your hero/ine uses to buy powers and skills, but if s/he runs out of points, s/he can get more points by accepting various weaknesses.) How about ‘Bad Habit’? Your hero/ine can have ‘nail chewing’ or ‘nose picking’ for 1 point each. S/he can also accept a ‘phobia’ for 5 points. Oughta be fun having a hero as majestic as Thor who scratches his armpits and is terrified of roaches. LOL

As for watching a DVD with your system while it’s also doing a rendering, all I’d say is: just make sure your system’s up to it!

The game didn’t have a real list of powers. It left pretty much everything to be worked out between the gm and the player. Unlike some games, it didn’t suffer from too many rules, but from too few. If you can find a copy, it might be worth picking up for the novelty, but it really wasn’t much fun to play.

Champions was the first super rpg I liked. It has a point system for buying powers, as well as enhancements (increased cost) and limitations (reduced cost). It is pretty good for crafting unique variations on standard powers.

Finding time to coordinate schedules with my other gaming friends has been a problem of late, so I’ve been playing DCUO when I have a few hours free. Not that I have that much free time, but sometimes I just need to sit down and do some mindless villain pounding.

If you are on the PS3, (and this goes for anyone here), let me know via PM. I’ve got a couple of Leagues I can make and like playing as a team or just helping folks out.

I’m on Windoze. It would be nice if Windows & PS3 players could interact with each other, but I don’t know if it will ever happen.

I’m glad I never had to compete with him for ladies’ attention; I had enough difficulty dating. (Think Peter Parker without the spider bite.)

Hey, I was just joking actually. wink I’m perfectly confident I’m not all that bad-looking myself.

Always entertained this politically incorrect version of Venom’s origin. Perhaps Peter Parker discarded the symbiote suit because it was just too tight in the crotch area—the suit had a perverted personality. As for Eddie Brock, he was a ghey co-worker who was desperately in love with Peter, except Peter was homophobic and horrified of Eddie, whom he constantly kept away from. The heartbroken Eddie meant to commit suicide when the equally dejected symbiote suit stumbled upon him and promptly wrapped itself around him, and in this way Venom was born. tongue wink Venom, as we know, has a very complex love-hate relationship with Spiderman, doesn’t he?

If anyone is interested, there is a trailer for Iron Man 3 on YouTube.

HATE Tony’s new suit! Good trailer, though.

And it will probably feature a one minute boss battle in the end like the second one. *Rolls eyes*

It looks a lot like they were going for his Red/Silver look this time around. Was that supposed to be War Machine in the beginning? If so what is up with the Red/Silver/Blue color scheme?  Not complaining about the Old glory paint scheme but War Machine is a Black/Dark Grey color scheme, don’t mess with it, it works for that armor. I couldn’t agree more with needing more than a lackluster and short boss fight at the end, it needs to occupy a lot more of the time than a measly few minutes considering that he is fighting The Mandarin this time around. It also looks like his LMD suit makes an appearance .

OK after checking I was wrong, not the red/silver but the Extremis style armor. I missed that story arch so that was where I goofed.

ETA: DOH!! :facepalm: why didn’t I just edit the last post??!! I could answer that but I think the censors would get me for it!

The Mandarin’s going to appear this time? YIKES! big surprise

Been working on a pic of a new superhero I made up, by the way. Hope you fellas will find it good. It’s based on a figure from Buddhist mythology. I’m dubbing him the Diamond Bearer.

Here are a couple traditional images of the figure on whom I’ve based my hero. His name in Sanskrit (India’s classical language) is Vajrapani, literally ‘diamond in the hand’.

See if you can identify some of the special features of this character which I’ve duplicated in my pic. wink

Oh, but the excitement, when he activated his suicide bomb - with a 20 minute countdown O_O

If only real terrorists would work like this….

Cool looking super-hero there. He must like blueberries. :D

Yes, the Mandarin is going to appear and be the villian. Unfortunately, he’s a MAJOR MISCAST as the actor isn’t Asian when the Mandarin is. Why can’t Casting Directors do their freakin’ jobs right?

I don’t recall the Extremis Armor having that much of a creamy yellow look. It was still mostly red and some gold (and looks freakin’ awesome in the comics! smile ). But here? Hardly any red while most of it is a disgusting looking creamy yellow look? UGLY!

As for the War Machine look, I have no idea if that was James Rhodey. But in the comics, the guy who wore that style of Iron Man Armor was Normon Osborn. He called him the Iron Patriot. HAAAATED that. Normon is the Green Goblin NOT a guy trying to be a hero and an Iron Man rip off to boot.

In Iron Man 3, The Iron Patriot will most likely be someone else. I’m guessing Rhodey (another miscast character).
