You'd be a banker.

What if you paid your job but they don't love you?

@  BlackMax : (16 August 2017 - 08:01 PM)

...crap, never mind, enough searching and I turned it up. I am convinced this would not have happened without asking.

@  BlackMax : (16 August 2017 - 07:43 PM)

Forgive me for being the last one aboard the bus that came and went after the previous bus... but can anyone direct me to the comic based on UW Megatronia?

@  Bass X0 : (16 August 2017 - 04:36 PM)

I'll refer to Simon Furman's work on Dreamwave.

@  OrionPax44 : (16 August 2017 - 04:28 PM)

How bout if you love your job but they don't pay you?

@  Bass X0 : (16 August 2017 - 02:31 PM)

It doesn't feel like work when you love your job!

Why do you want to remove it? Just in the way or something?

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2017 - 03:42 AM)

I wonder if there's any way to remove Destiny 2 from the Battlenet launcher entirely?

@  OrionPax44 : (15 August 2017 - 01:55 PM)

My wife has that ability to bring up a bill or something the second story starts. Couldn't have been during the silent loading screen either.

God yes. Nothing like spending three hours collecting items, then the instant you get back to the story LET'S ALL SHOUT ABOUT OUR NEW SOCKS! THEY'RE BLUE!!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 August 2017 - 09:12 AM)

I still say ALL games should have a Subtitled option.. Since when I play in the family room it seems people want to talk EVERY SINGLE cut scene.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 August 2017 - 09:08 AM)

You can usually adjust that in the Settings Menu.

@  Cybersnark : (13 August 2017 - 07:58 AM)

It used to (on the TV I had in my room growing up, for one).

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2017 - 02:42 AM)

When you mute your tv, it should automatically display closed captioning.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 August 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Hmmm...Right Stuf was asked about the Brave series at Otakon 2017 a little bit ago..."They'll look into it" Dare to hope?

Oh god...iMovie is SO much more complicated than I thought...

@  RichardT1977 : (12 August 2017 - 04:54 PM)

Even TV Tropes admits that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 August 2017 - 04:48 PM)

Because TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2017 - 04:29 PM)

TVTropes is a useful resource. Why is it that people on other sites make fun of using TVTropes terminology?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 August 2017 - 04:21 PM)

The TVTropes page even specifically mentions that it's a wrestling term.

@  JasperGunner... : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

I thought it was a wrestling term

@  RichardT1977 : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

"Heel-face-turn"? Did you just use a TVTropes term?

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:52 PM)

So each of them thinks the other one is still evil, resulting in a fight.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

A and B know each other from their times as villains, but neither is aware of the other's heel-face-turn.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

Eventually, a new threat leads both villains A and B into the enemy lair.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:50 PM)

Elswehere, former villain B has also given up his plans for world domination and decided to become a part-time ally of the good guys.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Former villain A has abandoned his evil ways and decided to become an anti-hero of sorts.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Where has this plot been done before:

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 August 2017 - 01:52 PM)

Until you get the taxes for it.

@  Evac : (12 August 2017 - 01:02 PM)

But $69,999 cars are fine

@  Bass X0 : (12 August 2017 - 05:39 AM)

Quote of the day: "When you wreck a $70,000 car you don't wanna drive $70,000 cars anymore"

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2017 - 09:25 PM)

Okay, those were pretty awesome. Keep up the good work, man.

who on this forum had the comicstrip of swerve and deadpool figures? i wanted to check it out today but i didnt bookmark it like i thought i did and cant remember who did it

@  Evac : (10 August 2017 - 02:13 PM)

I think they both sound like Mr. Burns

@  Bass X0 : (10 August 2017 - 02:03 PM)

In your opinion, does Starscream sound like Cobra Commander, or does Cobra Commander sound like Starscream? (Yes, I know they're the same voice actor)

@  Diecast : (10 August 2017 - 01:28 PM)

MASK spiritual successor Vor-Tech had that intelligent car, right? Have a Transformer interact with something like that.

Yeah, it's pretty good.

Although I wasn't a regular watcher at first. It felt like every time I caught the show while it was on it was the same episode.

 

But I decided to finally start DVRing it during the Stevenbomb(which I did not know was going on), and now I'm hooked.

That show turned out to be a "sleeper hit" with me. at first it was just something I let play in the background but when I started paying attention I was surprised at the depth the show has.

I've fallen behind on episodes but I might decide to marathon them soon. It's that good.

If you're going to start watching, keep in mind the 1st few episodes are standalone and may appear somewhat random. What they do accomplish, however is *world building*. Eventually there is a narrative going on (like the story of Steven's mother, or the very nature of the Crystal Gems *and the threats they fight*) and those"random episodes" suddenly become important.

Yeah I REALLY wanted us to have a thread when Jail Break aired. Garnet's song and all.

I think it's certainly one of and quite possibly THE best Cartoon on TV at the moment.

I want to avoid getting too hyperbolic about it, but I definitely think it's a really fun show that's doing stuff that I want to see a lot more shows do.

There are a half dozen or so plus size characters but not once in over fifty episodes has there been a fat joke!

I love this show, so, SO much. Here's a little review:
 
Steven Universe is the son of Rose Quartz, a gem, and Greg Universe, a human. He lives with The Crystal Gems(Living magic "rock" people with magic technology.) so he can develop his powers. The show follows Steven and the people around him, exploring Beach City, the people living there, the varied Gem locations on earth, and the Crystal Gems themselves through Steven's perspective in an amazingly organic way.
 
It's funny and goofy and exciting and it has some cool action and cool weapons and some beautiful animation and an amazing aesthetic and deep lore and fantastic characters and world building and mystery and heartwarming to heartwrenching moments and oh goodness the music...
 
It basically basically does everything I'd want a show to do and does it flawlessly: Explore a world through great characters in a story that is often silly and fun but can also shift in intensity. It even has musical segments, for crying out loud!
 
Also could we uncapslock the thread title? Please stop shouting.

After watching this show I kind of want to see Transformers redo a concept like Energon where everyone can combine, but combination is viewed the same way fusion is in Steven Universe.

The teasers back when they first started advertising it on CN as a new show intrigued me, mostly b/c it was made by a woman and the main female characters all had vastly different body types and facial features. Been a fan ever since ep 1. I am surprised at how it makes me care even for the minor chars in Beach City, and how imperfect even the Crystal Gems are. It's great to see so many Gem & human female characters take the lead, and Steven being ok with being more of a romantic and emotional than the ladies. This show hits me on an emotional level every couple episodes, I even cry sometimes. I also love the way they handled
