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.

@  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)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  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)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

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.

Actually switch out Vampire for Dragon and he kind of has it.


I guess that's true. But it looks like before I can do that, I'm going to need a key. And I forget where that town is on the map. So... I'm still hoping to find that little strategy guide when I get home.

Found it. I'm grinding to get the magical armor before going to fight that dragon. Kicked my butt on level 10. I'm 12 now. Get the armor, I should be able to save the princess.

I think the main thing that's going to give me trouble is that with the NES, I was well into the 20 lvl's and you can beat the game rather handily with that. But I don't know if they raised the lvl cap on the iOS or made the Dragon Lord harder. Should be interesting either way.

Nah I had this beat at lv 20 myself here a couple months ago. I had to refresh my memory a few times to remember exactly what I had to do a few times but I got through most of it on my own after 20 years or so. Now DQ 2 I never played through so I'm having a harder time.

My main problem I think is that I kinda know certain things I'm supposed to do, but not the order I'm supposed to do it in. So I get my ass kicked trying to do something out of order.

So I just defeated Dragon Quest 1 on the iPad. *goes back a page to see when he got it*

One week ago today! And...umm...I didn't play it at all throughout the week because I was playing DQ XI at my home instead. So basically, I beat this in 3 days.

These older games just aren't as long as I seem to remember.

I'm interested in this game, since I love Toriyama's art and have always wanted to get into DQ, but I'm going to wait until I can find a used copy on Switch. I can't bring myself to buy a DQ game if the money I spend is going to a complete and utter shitstain like Sugiyama; I feel marginally better buying it used just because none of the money I spend will go to him.

 

Of course, that means if there's DLC, I'm not going to buy the DLC... Shit.

I don't know what the story is behind Sugiyama and why you don't like him. But I'm no stranger to not buying something out of principle.

There isn't really any DLC. There were pre-order bonuses which are kinda nice early game but loses a bit of their usefulness later. So really, you wouldn't be missing much at all by getting it used. I don't know when it's supposed to come out for Switch in the States though. Probably going to be a while.

I don't know what the story is behind Sugiyama and why you don't like him.

He bought a newspaper ad in the Washington post saying that the Nanjing Massacre never happened and Japan has nothing to apologize for from WW2. Also, he has a talk show and laughed about LGBT teens committing suicide.

 

He's a reprehensible excuse for a human being.

Wow! Nothing like finding out you just gave money to a complete and utter scumbag like that! I already have the game, so I'm still playing it. It's still a hell of a fun game. But knowing this now, I may have to reconsider getting any DQ games in the future.

Okay, so I got over my boycott and got Dragon Quest 8. I'm loving the game, even if I still hate Sugiyama's guts.

 

Also, despite Sugiyama's shittiness, XI apparently has an extremely positive portrayal of a flamboyant/effeminate gay guy. Like, Sylvando is camp as hell, but he's never mocked by the characters or writing for it, he's one of the most badass, wise and noble characters, he has characterization and development beyond being campy, and most importantly of all, he's never portrayed as predatory. He feels like Yuji Horii and Akira Toriyama giving the most elaborate and awesome "hug you" to Sugiyama.

 

Persona could learn a lot from him.

Even if you bought it new, none of the money would go to him.  Composers of video games don't get royalties on the games.. only on live concerts or OSTs.  He was paid long before anyone bought the game.

So, I bought Dragon Quest 1, 2 and 3 on the Switch. Yeah, I know I just recently beat DQ 1 on iPad, but I've never played 2 or 3 and I wanted to play them as a trilogy. Plus the Switch has an actual controller.

Never having played 2 or 3, I can't wait until I get to them. Makes me really want to hurry through 1.

Im nearing 90 hours on XI S. On the post game treasure hunt and level grind. So for those that played the PS4 version other than the quests with the four in the mid point has there been any other additions you found. I want to say there was one in the post game at Heliodor Castle after the reveal of the post games big bad but Im not sure if I just never hit it before.

I played it on PS4, but I haven't bought it for Switch. I doubt I will just because, dang I sank a hug ton of time into it on PS4 and just can't bring myself to go through it all again.

Purchasing 1, 2 and 3 was my bid for showing support on the Switch. Would love to eventually get 4, 5 and 6.
