And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:35 AM)

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday @Pinkcolliebot

@  Pinkcolliebot : (07 June 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Today's My Birthday!!!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 June 2019 - 03:16 AM)

Think how many copies of Optimus Prime's brain could fit on that.

The final Short Trek features Harry Mudd.  It's very funny and entertaining.  This is a more whimsical, TOS-esque Mudd.

And that's that.

 

I do like the new Enterprise.  I can sort of tell myself it always looked like that and the 60s effects just couldn't manage it.

Did you feel like the audio wasnt mixed well? I felt like the music completely overpowered the actors. I almost left closed captions on at one point I turned them to hear what Amanda said to Burnam after rewinding 3 times.

I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about it. Definitely going to need to watch it once more before giving some full thoughts.

 

I do kinda wish that the intensity was dialed back a little bit, though.


I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!

As I said when the first image of the Enterprise was revealed at the end of Season 1, this is why I get annoyed when folks who want to defend Discovery's Klingons accuse those of us who don't like them of simply needing everything to stay the same. Reimagination is fine. But I want to be able to recognize that the new thing is a new version of the old thing it's intended to represent. Romulans, Andorians and Tellarites were all reimagined from what they looked like in the 1960s by the time Enterprise ended its run, but all were recognizably those species. I cannot see "Klingons" in the Discovery Season 1 Klingons. At all.

(Honestly, I feel like I could recognize TNG-era Klingons as the same species as the TOS-era Klingons, but I do refrain from mentioning that too heavily because the fact is that I started really watching Trek in the mid-TOS-movie era, at which point that change had been established. I wasn't really paying attention yet... not old enough... when TMP introduced the new look to be jarred by it.)

Well, I feel like they at least managed to not go backwards from where they left off. It was a definitely a bit Abrams-ey - that asteroid scene was unnecessary. I enjoyed it well enough though. I just continue to be glad I've got The Orville for more "conventional" Star Trek.

The season premiere has a distinctly lighter, more fun tone than most of the first season.  Whether that was always the intent or it's a course-correction based on fan feedback, it's a welcome shift.  I laughed several times.

 

That was some very kinetic action compared to Star Trek shows of the past.  That's not surprising for a modern show.  It felt like they used a TNG season's worth of budget on this episode's effects.

 

The Burnham/Spock relationship is clearly going to be a thread running through this season.  My first impression is that maybe Spock was jealous of Burnham taking Amanda's attention.  But the rift may be deeper than that.

 

What are the chances that Staments will actually depart Discovery?  I'm going with nigh-zero.

 

I already love Tig Notaro's Jett Reno.  She's a crazy brilliant engineer-turned-medic.  I hope she sticks around for a long time.

 

CBSAA's commercials seem to be designed to be as obnoxious as possible so that you'll pay for the commercial-free plan.  They're far too loud and they tend to miss the act breaks by several seconds.  It might work on me.

I really enjoyed it. It's feeling more and more like Trek.

 

It's getting to be upbeat and full of hope.

 

Also: the bridge crew got more characterisation in one episode than an entire season last time round.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

Well said. I am not convinced yet that this season's showrunning changes will endear me any more to L'Rell's Klingons.

This week's episode, "New Eden," is the closest thing that Discovery has done so far to a traditional Star Trek episode.  There's a strange new world, a couple of mysteries, a moral quandry, and an imminent space tragedy.  I liked it a lot.  And yet, I can't help but notice the shortcomings.

 

Spoiler

 

I don't want to sound too critical.  I did like the episode a lot.  I just wish it would slow down a little bit and take the time to flesh out the ideas it presents.

 

Other thoughts...
