Not placing much stalk in this conversation.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 06:22 PM)

That's so corny.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

You guys aren't being very nice. You're supposed to tell me I did "good, really good!"

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Overnight delivery is the right of all sentient beings.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

(and is it sexist of me to assume that a character named "Amazon Prime" would be feminine?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Meanwhile I'm wondering why no one's come up with a fan character named "Amazon Prime". I mean, today IS her special day...

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 11:20 AM)

The Wallet-Eater.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2019 - 08:44 AM)

Woah. Unicron broke the site.

@  MEDdMI : (14 July 2019 - 10:08 PM)

Is that what kids are calling it these days?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 07:33 PM)

Ssshh, you'll get us both "dealt with".

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 07:28 PM)

No, but I did *read* it from you...

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 03:06 PM)

The first real long-term space outposts belong to the Illuminati, but you didn't hear that from me.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Er, in SF I mean.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 02:50 PM)

Yeah, the first long-term manned space outposts have traditionally been mining colonies and the like.

Yeah, I meant more in an actual series. But that will never happen because of Japan.

So by will never happen because Japan you mean has already happened because Japan, yes?

I mean there won't be a television series where the main character, always a red ranger, will be female.

Debatabe: Tine Force. Not a Red Ranger, but Jen was arguably just as important as Wes, they both kinda shared the main character role.

And not debatable: Samurai. We've already had a female red ranger in Lauren. Because Shikenger had Kaoru. So again, we've already had a female red because Japan.

While that is true, he commented on 'Main Character' and Lauren really wasn't the main character of the series. She was important, and a Red Ranger, and the core of a few episodes, but she only comes in at the end. Jen, while not a Red Ranger, was still one of the most important characters in the series, just as important as Wes; and was kinda the leader of the team, while Wes was more the heart of the team.

Also kind of sad the whole Jason and Lauren pairing won't go anywhere. Not to mention it would of been cool to get a good look at the Hyperforce Megazord. Heck give us a Hyperforce mini illustrating their first season!

 

But it seems our reason for the new team next issue...

That could be changed.  The original Power Rangers series the Yellow Ranger is female but the Japanese series it comes from the Yellow Ranger is male.

I think I need to read the event again, because I didn't feel the finale was a great fit.

That said, I'm still loving both books and Boom has made me a Power Rangers fan, which is more than MMPR could manage on TV.

I never quit buying my comics every week, but a year or more ago I mostly stopped reading them.  I've been catching up, so this week I read GGPR from about #2 on and the MMPR from the same time.  Leading up and going through not just Shattered Grid, but the first Drakkon arc too.

 

When GGPR started, I had the distinct impression that it was just another take on the Power Rangers, so I sort of ignored the hints that it was actually the same universe just earlier.  I didn't see most of the first season of Power Rangers, so I assumed that Matt and Billy's internship were references to the show, not things that were connecting these.  Since I "knew" it, I resisted it until it because a cool revelation late in Shattered Glass.

 

I agree the ending was kinda weird.  I think a year from now we will compare it a lot to Avengers.

Just sad we didn't get a Rita line. "MAKE MY BISON GROW!" :D

 

Really nothing to do with Shattered Grid but Legacy Wars has the same cross Ranger series aspect. And being a fighting game haveing a crossover with SF is pretty fun. Also love Ryu's Ranger form. Mix of his Colors with a Green Ranger like suit. Though Animal choice wasn't one I'd attribute to Ryu as much.

 

Interesting note however. Is that the first PR material to have the Allspark Studios logo on it?

Finally got around to reading MMPR#31. Didb't really like it all that much honestly. I felt it relied a little too much on the reader's knowledge of the shows these characters come from. Didn't help that the new artist left alot to be desired. Alot.

Who else is on Promethea? Is it just various displaced Powerless Rangers? Employees from Grace's foundation? Civilians? Issue did a poor job specifying the stakes beyon " our people".

Some kind of character intro page or clunky exposition would do wonders.

"Noise Ranger"(?) Is pretty cool tho.

#32 is another awkward issue. There were some strange scene transitions and it was just ...unpolished all around.

Again, I wish we had some kind of dedicated character intro page.

I'm quickly losing interest in this.
