Watchmen Wallpapers!
The other day I gave the Watchmen X-Box Live game a try, since you can try it for free before buying. I'm still undecided on whether or not to actually get it (it's fun, particularly if you play the unorthodox Rorschach, who has some neat moves, but it seems slightly repetitive and has gotten mixed reviews), but either way, the game and the game's site have some pretty cool graphics, so yesterday I took a little break from trying to find employment (whee) and made some Watchmen wallpapers.

Sample:




(These were centered for those of us who keep our taskbars on the screen all the time. So if you don't, they may not be 100% centered. :)

Enjoy!

Can't argue with THAT! :)

Glad you like the wallpapers.

nice wps! I bought the game lol, it's pretty good. But then again I can listen to Rorschach and Nite Owl read the phonebook and I'd be happy.

Thanks!

I'll probably end up buying it as well. Even if just for the narration. Heh. But good to hear a positive recc, too. :)

This. *_* (They've both got such lovely voices!)

Great wallpapers! I think I might nick #4.

Heh, that game's on my list of reasons to one day buy an Xbox 360, I mean.. c'mon, you get to kick butt as Rorschach.

No. 4 is my current desktop. I ♥ it, even if I did make it myself. :)

Yeah, I am going to end up buying the game, I know it. Just so I can hear Jackie Earle Haley say Rorschach-like things the whole time. For a mysterious (to some) vigilante, he sure is talkative in the game. Heh.

Hearing JEH talk in the Rorschach Voice is definitely another very good reason. I'm still a little amazed how well he pulled of the voice, considering just how totally different it is to his own... ah, I love JEH. <3

I KNOW. His own voice is so non-Rorschach-y; I am very impressed by him.

So was I, but I already knew he was a very good actor beforehand, so I was prepared for the awesomeness. ;D
Have you ever seen Little Children? It's classified as a drama, but I don't think I've ever been so freaked out/disturbed while watching a movie before; he was so great in it. Also features Patrick Wilson.

I haven't seen it, but I've heard it recommended and that it's disturbing.

I bought the game. Gameplay doesn't have a ton of variety, but MAN, Rorschach's comic-y moves are fun to watch.

Stealing 2, 3, 4 and 5, because Dan is just so amazingly fantastic and Rorschach with a baseball bat was something I didn't know I needed in my life until tonight. I really need to play this game.

Enjoy! #4 is my current desktop. :)

The gameplay itself is pretty straightforward, but the comic-y finishing moves of Rorschach (and Nite Owl, but more Rorschach) are SO MUCH FUN to watch.

P.S. I love your icon. Could I perhaps use it too? I love the almost gleeful look (albeit perhaps unintentional, considering he was just set up) look of his mask there.

Haha, of course! I think I made a note of who posted it, but you'll have to check. ^^; Also, my friend and I are pooling some money to buy the game, because I can't see it sucking royally enough that I wouldn't enjoy beating people up as Nite Owl. :DDD

I haven't even played as Nite Owl yet except for the trial game. :) It should be fun! (Although it really is fun watching Rorschach smack the criminals around, too. He has some brutal moves.)

He's so scrappy. x] I think the depraved, violence-loving side of me will love that.

Oh! And I forgot to say - yes, Rorschach with baseball bat = awesome. When he's got that, he can pretty much just knock enemies out with one or two hits. That and the wrench. I love them.
