Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

I figured we could use an Amiibo centric thread since we'll soon be branching over more than a few games and they aren't tied to one particular system.

 

So who has got their favorites picked out so far?

 

I just got Shiek (got lucky and found her hiding away from the rest of the Amiibos at the local Walmart ) and even though she's only about lv.17 shes already giving me a run for my money. So far I've been trying to balance her out more than the rest of them Stat-wise. With most of mine I've been focusing on Attack and Speed power. But now that I have an overabundance of Defensive badges and such I figured I'd at least try to keep her balanced and man she seems to keep me on my toes. Of course giving her a Crouch-Healing badge may have helped her.

 

On another note how bad have we all gotten addicted so far? I've gotten 14 so far, with another two preordered.

Fortunately, I've managed to rein myself in from spending too much on these things (I'm already spending quite a bit much on Transformers and some other collectibles, anyway :p). The three I have so far are Samus ('Artemis', my first and highest-leveled), Luigi ('Hades') and Shulk ('Apollo'), with Sonic and Mega Man reserved at Gamestop.

 

Man, they really need to add an amiibo option on the online modes for people to be able to pit these against each other. Maybe even do something like have the player fighting alongside one or two of his amiibo against another player's team. :thumbsup

Oh, Amiibo, Amiibo, Amiibo.

 

I only have Kirby, Villager (who I lucked out on on release day before the insanity happened) and Toon Link.

 

I really want Captain Falcon but Scalpers took care of him. I also want Mega Man who, I don't know.

 

Nintendo should really look into upping production on the scalped Amiibos. When I first heard of them, I thought they would be replenished regularly like Disney Infinity does. But goddamn, have they dropped the ball.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I still need Captain Falcon, Pitt and Little Mac from Wave 2 and Rosalina Shulk and King Dedede from wave 3. I hope Nintendo UK restock them again soon as I'm having far to may gaps in my collection and sooner or later I'll just give up collecting Amiibo entirely.

I'm hard to buy gifts for, so I made the mistake of putting Amiibos on my Amazon Wishlist so that family could buy them for me for Christmas. Unfortunately my family sucks, and now I'm freaking out trying to find Fox and Captain Falcon at a reasonable price - reasonable for me being less than double retail.


Yep.

Well Pac is slated for the Spring Wave. At Walmart is seems some must be shelfwarming pretty bad since I saw them Rollingback DK and Yoshi.

 

Might as well list all mine. I have Samus, Fox, Pikachu, Mario, Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Pit, Kirby, Link, Toon Link, Zelda, and Shiek. Mega Man and Sonic are preordered at Gamestop but now I'm wondering if I'll ever get them.

I've let all my worst collecting tendencies take over with these things. I have all of them except Rosalina and Meta Knight. I never saw an option to preorder either of them, and at least Rosalina was naturally sold out immediately. I'm assuming the same is true for Meta Knight.

 

I kinda regret getting lucky and finding Villager stuffed in a bin under a bunch of others at one of the local TRUs. I'd already had Marth from the release day, and WFTs were still fairly easy to find at the time. Finding him made being a completionist possible, and I'd seen too much to resist the urge at that point. Between these, Skylanders, and Combiner Wars, my wallet's crushed this year.

I just grabbed a Link and a Mario because I only have the 3DS Smash Bros so far.  I'd like a Megaman but not so much I need to care too hard about it.

 

I got a Captain Falcon for a friend a couple of weeks ago.  TRU employee came over and asked if I'd like a rare one.  I didn't know these things were such a big deal at the time, didn't care about them, got it anyway, then gave it away.  You can all feel free to hate me for that now.  :D

I'll list the ones I don't have. That'll be shorter.

 

Marth, Villager*, Rosalina, Meta Knight, Lucardio, Dedede and Sonic, Mega Man and Ike are Pre-order and I'm just waiting for them to arrive. Toad is paid and will be shipped to me in March. Hoping they'll make a Daisy for Mario Party 10.

 

*More upset about him than anyone else. He was one of my "GETS" but I passed on him a few times because if I got him I couldn't get Marth or WFT if I saw them.

I bought Marth and Wii Fit Trainer on day one, without any pre-orders. I just thought they were cool.

What has happened since then has been incredibly discouraging. I don't want to bother with hunting for the characters I like. I might just import a few figures to avoid supporting the local scalping market.

I want MegaMan badly. However due to all the nonsense with these things I'm not sure if I'll get him.

 

I wanted Marth as well but well...

 

It's really annoying. Not only are they hard as hell to find, but they are 13 bucks a pop. I didn't get into Skylanders or Disney Infinity, so I don't know the general prices for these, but I believe they shouldn't be more then 6.99 if that.

 

Right now I have none of them, but I'm aiming to get at least Link with a gamestop cupon I have so I can use said Link to unlock a weapon in Hyrule Warriors.

Considering they are marketing this worldwide, they could have come up with an easier to pronounce and less silly name than "Amiiboo". It sounds like, well... Hibbety-hoo or Hullaballoo.

"Musty prawns, and Timbucktu! Yeltsy-by, and hibbety-hoo! Kick 'em in the dishpan! Hoo hoo hoo!!  :D (hope you get the reference)

Much like with Skylanders I'd only be interested in this for the figures, since I don't own consoles. Will most likely get Starfox if they discount the figures, for the simple reason that well, this is the first ever Starfox figure, unless you count the bobble-head.
