I can't believe I forgot one of the core rules of video games. When the question is "They can't be that stupid, can they?" the answer is almost always "Yes they can".

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 August 2016 - 04:43 PM)

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

Goodnight out there... whatever you are!

Now I want to make devil's food cake with holy water just to see if I get hit by lightning or something.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Did I put garlic or holy water in it or something?

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 August 2016 - 11:52 AM)

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

So I was making out with this random old homeless guy, and he stops and is all like "Why are you making out with me?" and I'm just like "Shut up, Homeless Guy."

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:58 PM)

I've seen Minority Report, I don't want to read the same thing except with superheroes and also shit

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:57 PM)

You know, what I hate about Civil War II the most is that it's not even trying to break out of the Minority Report shaped hole it's in.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 02:39 PM)

the debate sems to be over.

@  MEDdMI : (24 August 2016 - 02:37 PM)

Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:55 PM)

Intent is not the same as result. And comics end up ignoring things quite often.

@  Telly : (24 August 2016 - 12:54 PM)

maybe they figured a lot of people that read gi joe also read transformers. so they throw a crossover/build up in their to get some excitement for the new comic coming

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:51 PM)

If G2 universe was to be unrelated to G I Joe, why did they do a prelude to it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:33 PM)

Classics and RG1 not including Joe issues 138-145 in their backstory does not preclude them from including TF 1-80, or even the Joe and TF miniseries.

I just received a bit of depressing news.

Actor Glenn Shadix, co-star of such films as Beetlejuice, PotA, Heathers, Demolition Man and voiceover artist in animated series such as Teen Titans, Jackie Chan Adventures, Duckman, and The Mask, passed away on Monday from a fall in his home.

I worked with Glenn one time when he attended a memoribilia/toy convention in New Jersey shortly after the Tim Burton PotA movie was released.

He was a very warm gentleman and was very politle to everyone who came up to his table to just say hello.

A shame he died at such an early age but from what I've been told he had been pretty ill for the past few years.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Shadix

RIP Otho.


Time to watch Beetlejuice in his honor.

In tragic news out of Alabama, character actor Glenn Shadix has been reported dead. He was 58 years old.

Shadix was probably best known for playing the quirky interior designer 'Otho' for the yuppie family who moves into Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis' home in Tim Burton's Beetlejuice, after the lead characters "perish" around the beginning of the movie. He was present in the memorable (and hilarious) scene when the ghosts cause the living to break out into "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)" by Harry Belafonte.

Tim Burton would later include him in The Nightmare Before Christmas and the 2001 adaptation of Planet of the Apes.

Seinfeld fans will remember Glenn Shadix as Jerry's landlord in the episode "The Apartment." He also had a recurring role in the HBO series Carniv?le.

A large portion of Shadix's acting credits comes from voice work. He can be heard on several animated series, including Jackie Chan Adventures, The Mask, and Dinosaurs (not animated, but still requiring voice acting, and a damn awesome show!)

Glenn Shadix (born William G. Scott) was openly gay. In the video below, he discusses his early experiences with "aversion therapy" when he believed he could "cure" his homosexuality.

Glenn Shadix reportedly died after his wheelchair tipped over and he hit his head. The funeral will occur on September 11.


I...didn't know he was wheelchair bound.
