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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

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

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 08:35 PM)

But that's not you doing something, that's something being done to you.

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Unless a meteor crashes down on your bed while you're in it.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 07:08 PM)

I've been trying for the last few hours to find an argument to counter this... and I can't do it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 03:32 PM)

The most dangerous thing you can do is get out of bed in the morning. Everything else that happens is a consequence of that one terrible, terrible decision.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Driving, by itself, is dangerous. Anything done to compromise the concentration of the pilot just makes things worse.

@  Benbot : (25 November 2019 - 12:46 PM)

Actually, I think you could make a reasonable argument for saying driving with glasses is dangerous. That is, more dangerous than driving with contacts or perfect vision. You have poor peripheral vision with glasses.

Okay, so... I started a new game, and used "alternate start" to make myself a warlocks thrall. I wake up in a cave, with one guy who knows I'm there and doesn't care because he thinks I'm under his mind control.

 

So I grab the wood axe and plant it in the back of his head. End of warlock. I have no idea how long I've been in this cave, or what he made me do...or what he did to me (cause I did something else I've never done in skyrim before: played a female character.), so I decide I'm going to extract literally everything I can from this forsaken hole in the ground.

 

I wind up with a lot of alchemical ingredients... and there's an alchemy table right there, AND a guide to herbs and plants on the shelf. So, I try it. I have enough in there to not only make five good potions (3 restore stamina and 2 restore mana.) but to experiment some too. I'm having fun playing with potions!

 

Satisfied with my work, and a new hobby, I leave the cave to find that I'm north of riften. I start running around collecting anything and everything I can find, and wind up in shors stone. And the adventure has only just begun...

SOOOOoooooo

Last Stop, a local 2nd hand store for Books, Games, Movies, and Music, got their hands on a bunch of Anime.  So I mozied on over to check it out.  Found myself Ghost in the shell, Vampire hunder D: Bloodlust, Attack on Titan: pt2, the Rune Soldiers box set....

And the official Game Guide to Skyrim.

Almost forgot to scope out the basement to check their guides.  I'm glad I did.  ^__^

Alternate start you say?  What is this and how can I find it?

I recommend using the nexus mod manager. The program, and website are both free to use (with registration, which is absolutely free.) and there's literally thousands of mods you can much around with. Currently less on the special edition, but all the popular stuff is making it's way over.

 

But using nexus also comes with bonus integration for stuff like "loot" (load order optimization tool. It helps keeps the game running smoothly and as crash free as possible while running hundreds of mods.) and SKSE (skyrim script extender. A must have executable for some of the more advanced mods.).

 

Alternate start literally needs nothing else, but adds to the experience nicely without killing the vanilla start outright. Go ahead and download it, start a new character and check it out. I usually go with either shipwrecked, attacked and left for dead, or warlock's thrall. but you need to be careful with the first two: as you can be dumped on solstheim with those.

Well... things haven't been going smoothly.

- got sucked into building additional characters before making much progress.
- got sucked into re-building the same characters due to nit-picky reasons.... be it that I found out about something listed below, to accidentally not naming the char, to realizing EVERYONE has fire.  X(

But yeah, I got...
- Nikitis, the Ork, with her alternating between two maces or a sheild and an axe on Mele.  She managed to level up BEFORE escaping the caves
- Malekeith, the dark-elf assasin with two Imperial swords he took from the jerks who tried to cut his head off.
- Lilliana, the dark-elf who I'mma thinking is going to be a necromancer (or a sith... she has palpatines complexion)
- Katarine, the Imperial who likes to BURN THINGS.

Messed up with dargo... gonna rebuild.  He's gonna have two-handed weapons




Found out about these two books, that you have to head out to get BEFORE heading to Riverbend.  You had to go back to the smoldering dragon party, take the gate to your left, and take the left fork.  Go up the road and you'll find a Kitty caravan that's been raided, and the bandits are still hanging about.  The wiki said that they won't attack you until you loot the wreckage, but each time I've gone up they've attacked me on site.  Aside from some sweet heavy armor that can be picked off their corpses... there is a book in one of the carts that gives you a boost to your speech.

Keep going up the road and turn off to follow the side of a cliff, and you'll find a wolves den... with two angry wolves.  Kill and skin them, and in the den you'll find a dead lady with a book on Armor, and a coin purse.

NOW... your probably over-encumbered at this point, fortunately the Stormcloak camp is just to the left of the caravan... or at least it will be once you go to Riverbend.  But, for some reason, the Cloak's quartermaster is preemptively hanging about.  Plus the cart has a box in the back for you to load stuff into if you don't want to slowly scale a cliff.

Remember, you NEED TO GO HERE FIRST!  You go to Riverbend, and the books vanish.

Get a perk.

 

Also the Civil War storyline is really really really dumb.  Honestly they should've New Vegased it and given us the agency to become High King of Skyrim.  After all all Ulric can do is use one Shout.  We've got an entire vocabulary to hug him up with.

So, more blindly trying to shoot things.

My acheivements on the bow include pissing off a bear repeatedly, wounding a fox that got away, chasing an elk towards wolves.

My only glory is the one-hit kill of an elk this morning.  Of course, I kinda accidentally put Nikitis is rage-mode.

My first play through I went with Stormcloaks. Second time I went with Empire. I like Stormcloaks because you storm the cities instead of defending. I just like laying siege and killing everyone.

But story wise, they both suck. You're either fighting for the people who tried to chop your head off at Helgen, or you're fighting for the people who tried to kill you while escaping Helgen.

Depends who you followed out of Helgen.  Follow the cloak, and you get better armor, and you get to kill that chick who ordered you to the block.

BTW... what's up with your MLP sig?  He looks... cray-cray

It's...a long story.

In the RP, my character used to have a move that took away HP from an enemy while giving me HP. I took the vampire symbolism a bit too literally and had my character bite an enemy. I've...toned him down a bit since then.

But then Fnu did his comic interpretation of the scene and...well...*points to the avatar*

Okay... so... my post was mostly ideological in nature. I've never actually done a playthrough where I joined either side. I support the empire... but not enough to join the legion. And frankly, the stormcloaks are entirely too "vive la quebec libre" for my liking.

So, my Emperial brat got done with the bandits, books, and speech-boosting, was heading down the trail incinerating a fox, when this lady ran up.  She wanted to know directions because she just escaped her kidnappers, and after I did so, she thanked me, told me where they where, and suggested I take care of them, and marked them on my map before running off.

Thing is, I can't remember where presactly.  I think she said 'whiterun' or 'Mistwatch', and there's no mission posted for it.

Anybody know what I'm talking 'bout?

Well, since whiterun is a major city, and mistwatch is a bandit outpost on the main road to falkreath... I would guess mistwatch.

 

Edit: and you might have a mission note for it under "miscellaneous" in your journal.

 

Edit again: hold on a tic, I think the name of the raider outpost in falkreath (on the road between falkreath and helgen.) is called pinewatch... So I might be entirely wrong here.

Kay.  Well, I saved and went back, but instead of the lady, I found a dead trader with a pick-axe, an tiara, and a note about finding an axe.  This char doesn't use axes...but the tiara is nice.

Then I went the wrong way, and found a shrine with dead-people and wolves.  Had one guy in special magical armor.  Found better stuff when I got to where I was supposed to be.

And cooked up some awesome stuff with that leek.

Now.... only i I could figgure out alchemy.
