They fight you with sparkles.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 03:40 AM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 08:34 PM)

Grandfather once said to me, "I'm going upstairs and hug your grandma."

@  Sabrblade : (18 May 2019 - 07:08 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 May 2019 - 03:54 PM)

Life is like a box of chocolates. Stay out of the sun or melt into a pile of gross slop.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 May 2019 - 10:26 AM)

Greasy, disappointing and still managing to be over priced?

@  Lancer : (18 May 2019 - 10:22 AM)

... Yes, it is!

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2019 - 09:48 AM)

I thought I posted about this, but...I guess not.

https://www.amazon.c...=street fighter

I got this for Christmas. I highly suggest it. I haven't read the whole thing. But I've read a bit of it. It's basically the history of the entire franchise, rundowns of the characters (some more in depth than others of course) and lots of pretty pictures. Definitely love this thing.

I'm and sooooooo falling in love with this franchise all over again. I am dying for the 30th Anniversary Edition to come out. DYING!

EDIT:
Holy crap, guys! I just got Street Fighter Resurrection Season 1 for free with my Amazon Prime membership. It looks awesome so far. I'm only on the second episode. I won't post any spoilers, but if you haven't seen it, it's shaping up to be pretty awesome...after only seeing the first episode...but still...pretty awesome.

So I was just thinking...what ever am I to do now? I already just recently watched: Van Damme Street Fighter, Street Fighter Animated, Street Fighter Legend of Chun Li, Street Fighter IV Ties That Bind, Street Fighter Assassin's Fist, Street Fighter Ressurrection, Street Fighter Alpha and Street Fighter Alpha Generations (actually, I fell asleep through that, I may try that again, but anywaaaaaays).

What's left to do? NOTHING. I've got NOTHING! Woe is me! How is this my life? I am totally Street Fighterless.

Oh wait! What's this on my shelf. Oh...oh my! Street Fighter II V! I completely forgot I had this. Later all! See you...well...this may take a while.

The Udon comics are pretty cool. Nothing terribly deep, but follows its own way fairly well.

And if you're REALLY hard up for more Street Fighter, you could always try tracking down the old Malibu comics.

So I went ahead and reserved the 30th Anniversary Collection at Game Stop yesterday for the Switch. Went ahead and paid it off too. I didn't realize it was so close. It comes out at the end of the month. Crazy!

So I'm off on vacation this week. Now that I've finished up my Firefly marathon, I figured I'd try some Street Fighter II V.

So...Ken's a redhead, the first American we see is a rude morbidly obese woman, the U.S. Airforce is basically a pack of thugs...first two episodes and...I have concerns.

Okay, let's talk music for a bit. Which game would you say has the best music. For me...

1. Street Fighter IV
I even have the soundtrack to this and I love how it's not just 16-bit midi like we had up to that point. It's fully orchestrated and it doesn't take long to hear the themes behind it. You know very quickly just whose theme you're listening to.

2. Super Street Fighter II
It's still the 16-bit midi files, but they're a drastic step up from the previous Street Fighter II themes.

3. Other Street Fighter II soundtracks
They're a step down from Super Street Fighter II, but still listenable.

4. Street Fighter 5
Yes, seriously, I put this one below the midi files because...well...you have to listen to the music for a while before it finally gets to the recognizable bits of the character themes. And whereas Street Fighter IV has it loud, proud and in your face, Street Fighter 5 took the opposite idea and really just mellowed the main themes to where they're really just a minor incidental parts to the rest of the pieces. So, honestly...not a fan.

5. Street Fighter Alpha
Really the only thing I can say about this is that it brought us Sakura's theme. Everything else was changed just enough to make it unique to Alpha but still played it safe enough to I might as well be listening to Street Fighter II

6. Street Fighter III
Did I miss something? Did they even do the normal themes? Cause I can't seem to find them. And at this point I'm only looking for Chun-Li, Ken and Ryu.

Street Fighter Zero (sadly not Alpha) has an instrumental version of "Itoshisa To Setsunasa To Kokoro Tsuyosa To" so therefore it is the best.

This song plays during the Dramatic Battle between Ryu & Ken VS Bison. In Alpha it's just Bison's theme. :(

Well if that's the case, I probably wouldn't spend too terribly much money on Zero if the asking price is a lot if I were you. If all you want is the music, worst case scenario you can bookmark the video up there...maybe see if there's a soundtrack you can get that would cost less than importing a game.

 

Course, that's just me. I know I've spent more money than I should have on things before just because I was a fan.
