Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

And checking: those monitors are REALLY expensive.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 October 2019 - 09:30 AM)

Eh, I'm happy with multiple 1080's personally.

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:21 PM)

Everyone needs a 1440 monitor. Just set up my new battle station and I never knew how much I was missing!

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 October 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

...could they really not find anyone who can pronounce the word "symbiote" correctly?


They did. I'm a biologist (not bee-ologist) and my bio professors taught about sym-bi-otes and their sym-bi-osis.

Sym-bee-otes are vulnerable to nucular weapons.

Were it not for the stinger and symbiote name drop...this would be a neat take on The Darkness.

 

My fear is the stinger in the trailer happens at the climax of the movie.

Nobody really knows, interviews and stuff have all been really vague.

It's purportedly a thing that Sony can use Tom Holland in their own productions, but you'd also assume that Marvel Studios have measures in place to protect their brand and prevent Sony from using Spidey cameos to try and latch themselves onto the MCU like a parasite...

Here's an interesting article from SFX about why Venom Doesn't need Spiderman. While i very much don't agree with the writer on this and feel that he's stretching a few points. The Secret Wars intro for the black suit wasn't actually Venom at the time. As far as i know, that was a retroactive thing later.

It is an interesting way of looking at it.

Imjust think that, as has been pointed out here. When you strip away the Spiderman connection. It ends up more Guyver, Prototype, The Darkness esque.

Venom looks like at least some of it might be good. I mean they do seem to, hopefully, have the Eddie/Symbiote dynamic right. It just seems like a weird, hard sell movie to do, as its disconnected from the MCU. Despite Sonys attempts to fudge the issue.

Well there's no Spider-man but they've got the interplay between Brock and Venom down so well that I'm going to see it. Even if it's going to be a CGI third-act slug fest

I will be honest, I want to see this film. I might have to go sneak away to a theater one afternoon, because it doesn't look like something I can watch in the house with the kids around.

They really like using the 'We are Vomom' line.

This looks like a not totally awful, but ultimately forgettable film. Other than Hardys performance.

And symbiotr v symbiote fight? Really?

But they do make the symbiotes in other colors, don't they? Sony could've picked something a bit more distinctive so the audience might have a shot at telling things apart when the final battle's on-screen...
