I'd say it's more of a crushing sensation than a sucking one.

They may have had it earlier than that; Risa uses weather control tech to maintain its resort-style climate, and it was shown to already be established in the late 22nd century

@  wonko the sane? : (16 December 2018 - 03:13 PM)

By next gen they had weather control on earth, and were even in the process of upgrading the geologic stability network. So yeah: habitat maintenance on the next level.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I imagine World War III managed to decimate enough of the industrial economies that they inadvertently managed to exceed their carbon reduction targets from the Paris Accords, and then by the time Earth got back on its feet after the development of warp drive and first contact with the Vulcans, electricity was able to be generated cleanly and much more efficiently

@  The Doctor Who : (16 December 2018 - 01:48 PM)

I mean, they have futuristic weather control satellites and everything, I would imagine that global warming is a thing of the past in Trek.

How's that unrealistic? Not even the ocean wants it.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 December 2018 - 01:35 AM)

Geez, WTF do those China sellers on eBay need my phone number for?

@  Pennpenn : (15 December 2018 - 09:44 PM)

Does the PotP voyager Starscream's chest stick out so far in combiner torso mode? It's kinda weird how much Elita Infinite's back seems so empty up top but very... protruding lower down.

@  Pennpenn : (15 December 2018 - 01:26 AM)

Trying to fit Elita One's combiner head back into her torso is a pain in the arse (and not just because her torso becomes her arse in combiner torso mode)

It's almost as if the people with the most money have funneled money into making the systems of government and law serve their purposes in retaining their wealth, no matter how harmful, counterintuitive, or just flat out evil they have to be. Huh.

@  Rycochet : (14 December 2018 - 02:45 PM)

Some states have laws against that, but they're in a tiny minority. There are plenty of cases where rich people have gone after journalists and their employers for accurate reporting, lost, but still left their targets saddled with hundreds of thousands ofdollars in legal fees and no hope of recovering anyof the money because a partisan judge has decreed that while they're innocent, they're not innocent enough.

@  Rycochet : (14 December 2018 - 02:43 PM)

The american system is as bad, there are plenty of cases of billionaires or corporations filing libel suits purely to kill reporting or activisim against their activities. SLAPP suits. Strategic Lawsuits against public participation.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2018 - 12:48 PM)

e.g. British libel laws place the burden of proof on the accuser, which is how we wind up with Emirati billionaires suing Western journalists in British courts

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2018 - 12:46 PM)

Never visited the UK in my life, but reading about British laws in the news gives me the vibe that British culture inherently protects the wealthy and established.

@  Anonymous X : (14 December 2018 - 12:39 PM)

Sounds a lot better than labour law in the UK. It's bare minimum standards here, you don't get any employment rights as such in the first two years of employment (and the employer can arbitrarily reset the clock). Unions are limited to a few public sector professions as well; in the private sector, there basically aren't any unions.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:25 PM)

Bonus points if your company has a works council. The employer is required by law to hear the works council prior to giving you your termination. The works council cannot prevent your termination if the employer really insists on going through with it, but if the employer failed to hear the works council, didn't wait for the works council to respond, or failed to tell the works council *all* the relevant details, the termination is legally invalid due to a technicality.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:23 PM)

The employer has to tell you the reason for your termination if you explicitly ask for it, and if you can prove the reason is factually incorrect, the employer may lose the case.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:21 PM)

For all its flaws, I really like a lot about our German labor law. Here, if you're under a permanent contract and have been continually employed for over six months, employers can only fire you for reasons that fall into one of three categories defined by law, and the burden of proof is on the employer's side in a potential court case.

@  Paladin : (13 December 2018 - 05:38 PM)

in brightest day or blackest night?

@  Bass X0 : (13 December 2018 - 05:25 PM)

Finally we get a Greenlight toy.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 December 2018 - 04:58 PM)

See.. In America they would just fire you for having the wrong color shoes on or some BS reason.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:13 AM)

And hey, in addition to the clocked extra hours, I earned an additional 50% overtime bonus.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:12 AM)

This past Saturday, in full expectance of a strike this week, I worked a full extra shift. They assigned me and some of the other volunteers to a totally pointless task, while some ladies were seriously sweeping the floor. When asked how long I was planning to stay, I smiled and said "a full shift!"

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:10 AM)

"You were asking for volunteers, right? I'm staying." - "But we have no more work for you!" - "I don't see how that's *my* problem..."

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:10 AM)

It's possible to use that to troll the employer a little, though... Once they allow voluntary overtime, they cannot backtrack from that. So once you notice you're rapidly running out of work, you just decide to do overtime out of spite.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:08 AM)

Now if there's *no* strike... people eventually run out of work.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:07 AM)

Amazon is prepared for strikes... they just hire way too many people for the Christmas season. If there's a strike, they still have enough (albeit inexperienced) workers.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2018 - 07:49 PM)

Not one bit :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 December 2018 - 06:46 PM)

@Steevy Did you read TM2's post? "Amazon.de".

@  Paladin : (12 December 2018 - 06:37 PM)

just wait until the European economy collapses up its Brexit-shaped asshole.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 December 2018 - 06:22 PM)

Probably not a ton of people, no. Although I'd say I order from one European Amazon site once every month or two, myself. Usually UK, but sometimes Germany as well. France and Italy a couple times, too. There are some good Blu-Ray releases that are exclusive to Europe

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2018 - 06:00 PM)

I'm not sure a European strike is going to impact North American customers.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 December 2018 - 04:13 PM)

Well, somebody must've been working 'cuz I had an order in with Amazon.de that got shipped out the other day

@  Echowarrior : (12 December 2018 - 01:29 PM)

Amazon.

@  Benbot : (12 December 2018 - 01:01 PM)

AOL?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:22 PM)

Also, strike has been extended. So no working for 50 minutes. Would have been fun, though.

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:21 PM)

I said numerous times already that I work at that big American corporation that begins with "A".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 December 2018 - 02:05 PM)

Who would be the heroes in this situation?

@  Waspinator : (11 December 2018 - 02:03 PM)

When I die, I want my body to be part of a puzzle solution. Like, have my skeleton pointing at the clue the heroes are supposed to find.

Apparently arcade ports though, so characters like Eagle and Maki won't be in it most likely :(

Well, let's see. I have...

Street Fighter 1: PSP

Street Fighter 2: SNES, PS2, PS3, Wii, 3DS, Switch

Street Fighter 3: PS2

Street Fighter Alpha: PS3...or was it the Vita...one of those PS systems.

Street Fighter Alphs 2: SNES, 3DS

Street Fighter Alpha 3: I think I have it for either the PSP or the Vita...can't remember, but I know I have it.


I'm about to buy them all over again...aren't I? And you know what? If they're arcade perfect ports off ALL off those versions, I think I'm okay with that. That's a lot of Street Fighter.

*sigh* and I just bought Street Fighter II for the Switch. This game kinda rules my life.

Anyone wanna try to recreate EVO Moment 37? I'll even be Chun Li!

I'm tempted by Alpha 3 alone. What version are they gonna use? The one with Ingrid, Maki and Eagle, perhaps?

 

EDIT: Looks like the Arcade version...eh.

 

The PS1 version was the definitive version for me.

I liked the Dreamcast version. Sine it had all the animation and didn't end the game if you lost to Super Bison.

I didn't. I got it. Kinda regret it now knowing that this will be coming out. On the other hand, HD graphics and the digital artbook are nice. And it holds me over until this comes out.

Am I just trying to justify a purchase to feel better about it? Maybe...probably...almost certainly. But it's not like I don't already have tons of versions of Street Fighter II. What's one more? I still plan on nabbing this when it comes out.

You know what I'm really looking forward to? Something I've been missing for a long loooooong time that has not been on any Street Fighter II version I've ever gotten (well, there was the PS2 version that had it as a cinematic extra, but my PS2 was a dust collector even when I first got it and...well...several reasons it doesn't count). I am soooooo looking forward to seeing this again (first 10 seconds):

Surprised Street Fighter 1 is included. It's the first time in years I believe. Think the only other 'port' was for the Turbo Grafx or something.

 

That being said, this series has always been an oddity for me. I like Ryu, I like Ken. I like the world of Street Fighter and will watch the cartoons, anime, movies.

 

But I never play the games.

 

I think I own two in the series. Street Fighter 2 in it's case for the Sega Genesis because I found it for 3 bucks at a thrift store, and Street Fighter Alpha 3 for the PSP because of Ingrid.

 

Last time I touched the series was when a friend left Street Fighter 4 at my house. I played through as Ryu on normal trying to unlock Sakura. Got to the boss, then spent the next couple of hours losing to him. Even got one of my brothers in on it, who is BETTER at fighting games then I am, and both of us tried for another couple of hours with no luck.

 

Put the game down, walked away, didn't look back.

Ah cool. I think the only 'first' game in a series now you can't find on some compilation is House of the Dead. Think the only way to play the original is still to have the expensive Saturn version.

Street Fighter 1 was also included in a Capcom collection for PSP.

https://www.amazon.c...GZSB65HV497TVQ6

Also has Final Fight, Bionic Commando and Strider

I got the digital download. Too bad the PSP's just kinda collecting dust now. The first Street Fighter was...bad. It was reeeeeally bad. But it's also nice to see the history of franchises I've grown to love.

I'm the same. I absolutely suck at fighting games but I dig SF fiction. A lot of it is pure nostalgia because SFII was a big thing when I was at the right age to be into it, but I'll never excel at one of these games. Still, it has a place in my heart. Hanging out with friends in the arcade, then playing at home on the SNES or whatever... anime... the White Wolf RPG...

 

The stuff Udon has been doing for the last few years has been a lot of pretty fun. I suspect it's garbage if you approach it objectively, but I've enjoyed it.
