Superman has always been about nobility defeating corruption.  Those are his most effective stories.  Authors sometimes try to focus on Superman as the outsider, but I don't think those work.  Superman is more like a rock star, or a quarterback.  People don't shun him because of his superiority... they embrace him.  They're awed by his presence.  And that doesn't make for a grim movie.  You can't be jaded around Superman... it just doesn't make any sense.  This is a guy who spends his life saving the world from catastrophes.  Just because he's nice.  So if they really want to capture his essence in film, they need to approach him from that vantage.  The most recent film made him seem too small, I think.

I've never really had a good grasp on Wonder Woman.  I don't know of any particular reason why she fights.  But she too seems a lighter-hearted character.

DC movie plans

I don't like that they're planning on all their films being realistic and grim.  Who wants to watch a "dark" Superman film?  Or a "dark" Wonder Woman?  Superman shouldn't be depressing, it should be inspiring and uplifting.

I've had some camera issues, especially when fighting bosses.  When you're knocked down, it inverts the y-axis for some reason.  So I end up aiming at the floor for a second until I allow the camera to right itself.  It's annoying, but nothing too horrible.  I only really had problems with Raging Raven, since the battle is so vertical.

I haven't had any problems with it outside the boss battles.  You need to approach it as a stealth game rather than a third-person shooter.  Ideally you never need to fight at all.  The elite players can get through not fighting or even being seen by anybody.  I'm not elite, but I use the tranq gun almost exclusively.  Creep around slowly.  See an enemy.  Put him to sleep.  Repeat.  In a few areas I just ran through after getting spotted.  Those 3-armed balls in the old hanger kept spotting me, so I just booked it to the door.  I don't have the patience to memorize patterns like I did for MGS2 and 3.  Since I can get ammo from Drebbin at any time, I use the tranq gun very freely.

One thing I did do was increase the speed for aiming.  I bumped it up to 8.  Made the boss battles a lot more manageable.

I figure the second time through I'll use a sniper rifle to kill everyone.  One of the ones I have has a silencer.  Should be fun.

It's less about how it looks and more about how it works.  I can't see it being all that comfortable for thumb-typing.  But who knows.

You might need to dig out your router documentation.  I don't remember it being difficult at all.  Just needed to pick the security method, and type in the 10-digit pass key.

Nah, it's fine.  It was basically a comedy act.  She had a speaker in her belt, I'm guessing.

Didn't they just try this in Australia and fail?  Get up in arms about it an eBay will back down.

I think if you're connecting at all, the configuration is correct.  There's only a couple things to set, and if any of them were incorrect (WEP setting, password, etc.) you'd never connect at all.  So I would conclude that the signal strength is just wavering enough that it drops completely periodically.

As for running a wire... I actually enjoy doing stuff like that, so that probably biases my assessment of the difficulty.   8)

Not gonna happen.  TDK made $16 million over this past weekend.  Even if it only drops modestly it'd have to be top-10 for the next two or three months to make another $126 million.

Bring something new, or don't bring it at all.   ;)
