Isn't there a thread for that?

I think I'd read a while back she was born in Berlin

I thought Zazie Beetz was really fantastic in Deadpool 2. Really looking forward to seeing her in Joker.

@  Liege : (20 September 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:54 AM)

You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

fun and games

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

I'd heard of the KS to dub it but only long after it was a thing. I assume that's the dub that Netflix is using as well? I didn't realize until looking now that the KS and the Netflix deal happened in the same year. 

The Kickstarter was for that, yeah.  Blurays were a kickstarter exclusive backer reward at a high enough tier-- Ankama had no interest in mass releasing DVD or bluray as they felt the real money was getting Wakfu on streaming services.

I found them funny with little knowledge of international football, but this is a show that rather likes making a joke out of the pointlessness of its own sidequests. Which is to say, it's pretty shameless about its episodic elements.

Wakfu is absolutely delightful, and yeah - I never got around to looking at my blurays, either. Or trying out the little card game, whoops. I did take a look at the dub when it first dropped, and while a lot of it seemed okay, Ruel's dub voice was just painfully flat and generic, so I'll definitely stick with the original french.

 

That said, I had no idea S3 was actually happening - I've wondered where the heck they were gonna go after the ending for the OVAs. God, just add that to all the good media to consume coming out in April.

 

Looks like Netflix is missing two of the prequel/side OVAs, though - Ogrest, the Legend and Noximilien the Clockmaker. They both give some background to two of the antagonists, Ogrest's especially is neat since his name gets used as a throwaway curse. Both are animated by different studios than Ankama - Ogrest's is by Studio Ghibli, not sure about Nox's, though. It's got a very out-there scratchy art style.

I feel that the episode Dragon Pig probably has the most disturbing images I have ever seen in a while. And this is coming from someone who saw the first episode of Magical Girl Site.

And, you have to remember, this is a French cartoon.  They enjoy their food porn.

Just the OVA set, The Quest for the Six Eliatrope Dofus - it's three episodes that take place a few years after S2, but there's also some considerable time passed between it and S3.

The time frame is a bit iffy. The special is six years after season two. Then it's a fuzzy few years after that. Yugo says he has been searching for six months. But I'm not sure how long they waited until he started the search. Adeline's brother got married sometime between that special and season three.

Well, I know a few people were keeping up with this franchise here, so I might as well let you in on some news.  I didn't hear about this until today, when I just randomly decided to look up any season 4 news, myself.

 

Unfortunately, it's almost all bad news.

 

Apparently, Wakfu didn't do very well on Netflix, and Netflix isn't interested in funding the show anymore.  It also sounds like one of the original French channels that WAS funding the show is shutting down.  So...seasons 4 and 5 probably aren't happening as originally imagined.  

 

The...sorta good news is that Ankama MIGHT make the rest of the Wakfu story a free webcomic.  They need to tell the rest of the story to lead up to their new game (now called Waven).  I have no idea if there's enough of a fanbase in the west left to even guarantee a fan-translation of a webcomic, but it might be something.  Seriously, these year-plus long waits are NOT helping keep the franchise alive *sigh*.  I don't think that manga that was supposed to bridge the OVAs and Season 3 ever even finished.  *HEAVY SIGH*

 

Sounds like they plan to release Waven in late 2020, so we'll probably have to wait and see what they'll actually end up doing until sometime next year.  *FINAL SIGH*

 

BUT, just so it's not all bad news, here's an interesting interview with the creator of Wakfu, Tot.  It goes over what's happening with Season 4, an idea for a Oropo side-story, and the original idea for Evangelyne's plot.  Make sure to turn on the closed captions for the english subtitles:
