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

@  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.

@  Lancer : (18 May 2019 - 10:22 AM)

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

I actually beat it. I mean, I beat Turbo on the SNES on the insultingly easy level. But this is the first time I've beaten an arcade perfect port (okay, still technically on easy level, but still)! I never thought I'd see these screens. *squee*

And this is World Warrior. No Super Championship Turbo...just plain old World Warrior.

So I started up Street Fighter V the other day for the first time in a while. After it updated I noticed a bunch of monotized logos plastered everywhere. What the hell, Capcom? After $60 for the base game and all the DLC I've paid actual money for, you feel like you have to throw advertising over everything? I didn't give you enough of my money to not be advertised to while playing the game?

And it's not just some subtle background thing either. It's very in your face. Yeah, I think I'm done with SF V. Seriously, this is so blatant and in your face, it's pretty hard to ignore. Like, it's even plastered on the fighters costumes. I'm just done with V until they take away this bull shit.

Which really sucks because I just got on another Street Fighter kick and V had been so much better with the inclusion of Arcade mode. But if this is the direction Capcom's headed, I'm having serious doubts about VI.

Good news:
My Arcade 1up machine came today. It's up and running and it's fantastic. I can't even begin to say how long it's been since I've played Street Fighter II the way it was meant to be played, in front of a cabinet. It is awesome!

Bad news:
Exactly how long have I been playing Street Fighter exclusively on console controls to the point I suck so hugging hard using a joystick?

Also, the machine was soooooo easy to put together. Honestly, most Ikea furniture is harder to put together. This was step by step. The pictures were easy to follow. It was so easy to put together. I love this thing!

Okay,turns out you can turn off sponsered content on Street Fighter V. So I'm happy again. Though now that I have that pretty arcade machine, that may be taking up most of my Street Fighter time for the time being.

I have one as well. My girlfriend got it for me for Christmas.

 

I love it personally.  Though I've gotten better with the an arcade stick, due to using an arcade stick on SFV occasionally, I still wish that SSF2T wasn't so dang hard.  I have to go super aggressive Balrog or M. Bison in order to win.

Yeah, I didn't mind it as it gave me more Fight Money to win other outfits (plus you never had to have any of it enabled if you wanted).  The UNIQLO stuff actually had some nice loading screens when they were sponsoring.

I'm getting better with it. I can do hadokens and whirlwind kicks a majority of the time. I can't pull off a dragon punch to save my life though. So I've mostly kept to Chun-Li.

I also tend to stick to Super: New Challengers. Champion Edition messes with me because Chun-Li doesn't have her Kikoken. Super Turbo, as you said, is just plain hard. I do play the other two as well, but I mostly just keep with New Challengers.

I may keep the ads enabled just for the fight money. What irked me before was that I didn't see you had the option of turning them off. If you weren't able to turn them off, that would've just been too far. I mean, as long as advertising isn't too obtrusive (a billboard in a racing game, a real world beer served at a bar or on a bar marquee), that's one thing. But the advertising here is kind of an eyesore. And for a game that you already pay premium prices to own, that wouldn't be right. But then I saw you could turn them off, so no problem.

 

Here's a pic of mine:

Sweet! You got the riser I see. As you can see, if I got the riser, it would probably block my switches. Also, being 5'11", I'd probably still be looking down at the screen uncomfortably. Here I can just sit on a chair and have a good view of it.

I'm so glad these things are coming out. I'm saving the other half of my tax return in hopes that a TMNT cabinet comes out sometime.

Yeah, I'm shorter at 5' 7", so with the riser it's a good height.

 

Shoryukens were a pain for me at first, but now they come out when I do them (mostly).  Even things like Guile or Vega's Super I can usually pull off (which is usually kind of difficult on a D-Pad).

Here's a little project I was working on today.

D4xQA4gW4AE5ONP.jpg
World Warrior

This one's a bit of an oddity. Note that this is the only one that has a red sky. So yes, this is either sunset or the sun is in eclipse. The rest of the stage also reflects to warm lighting.

D4xQTOmWkAAdrDs.jpg
Champion Edition

Here things turned to night. So instead of the warm reds, we now have the darker blues and parts of the stage show a darker shadow.

D4xQjJOWsAIqKrQ.jpg
Hyper Fighting

No real noticeable difference in the background. You can see the palette change with the characters, however.

D4xRA7sW4AEIHGd.jpg
Super

Some of the textures are smoothed out. While still evenining, the colores have been brightened quite a bit. The moon in particular has gone from yellow to white. Character sprites have also undergone some slight changes, a bit more smoothed out, slightly more detailing. The HUD's been completely reworked: different fonts, reworked life bar.

D4xRO_5W4AAmGoQ.jpg
Super Turbo

Character Sprites have gotten even more cleaned up detailed. Not much if any change to the background. HUD added character portraits, different font colors and now the Super Combo meter.

D4xRrFkWwAEueUi.jpg
Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers

Completely redrawn background, character sprites and HUD. It's a total apples to oranges comparison.

Okay, here's a couple things that have been bugging me the past few weeks that I'm honestly surprised took me as long to think of as it did.

1. Why is Fei Long from Hong Kong but Chun Li's from China? Isn't that a bit like saying Ken's from Beverly Hills but Guile's from the USA? No kidding! What hugging country is Ken from then, hugger?

2. I'm not sure who should be more pissed about T. Hawk, Mexicans or Native Americans. Mexicans got their spot on the map taken up by someone obviously not Mexican and won't get their next shot until El Fuerte in SF IV. El...Fuerte! Mexico got hosed! But then Native Americans got displaced yet again all the way to Mexico. Not even going to mention the stereotypes only because SF is all about stereotypes in all their characters. But dang!

IIRC Hong Kong wasn't condidered a part of China until late 90s. It was controlled by...England?

Not evidence, I know , but I have a Native American friend and THawk is his favorite Street Fighter (yes hes aware of the problematic issues around the character)

Yeah, Hong Kong was a separate thing from China for a long while after SSF2 was made.  A lot of people from Hong Kong still wish it was that way.

 

I'm betting T. Hawk is from Mexico because they wanted a Native American fighter but didn't want another person from the USA in the game.  So they stuck him in Mexico.
