I was at work when it happened I guess.

@  Pennpenn : (17 October 2018 - 02:14 AM)

Youtube was gone?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 11:53 PM)

I actually agree with you MEDdMI, or at least be creative. x.x

@  MEDdMI : (16 October 2018 - 11:29 PM)

Death threats are boring. Get to know the person, then torment them with stuff that really gets under their skin. *evil grin*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 October 2018 - 10:18 PM)

YouTube is back!

@  Waspinator : (16 October 2018 - 09:55 PM)

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

@  RichardT1977 : (16 October 2018 - 09:27 PM)

BTW for the three of you who haven't discovered yet, YouTube is down.

@  Telly : (16 October 2018 - 08:05 PM)

maybe this is that persons first death threat, and the creativity will come with more experiance

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 06:14 PM)

Nah. Or at least not near as creative as some of them I've got. This one was a basic "If I ever see you IRL I'll slit you're throat."

@  wonko the sane? : (16 October 2018 - 06:00 PM)

was it at least a creative threat?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 01:07 PM)

Speaking of which.. Got a deaththeat today on an other messageboard. :D

@  Shockwave 75 : (16 October 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess with a pidgeon; no matter what you do it's going to shit on the board and strut around like it won.

@  Pennpenn : (16 October 2018 - 05:48 AM)

Well, there is also the fact that the person you're arguing against won't accept the authority as neutral (or valid or credible) unless they agree with everything that person says.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 October 2018 - 05:35 AM)

Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2018 - 05:21 AM)

Anyone who's ever argued with dumbasses on the internet knows how stubborn and persistent they can be. Dozens of people can tell them they're wrong, and they' just stick their fingers in their ears and go "na na can't hear you!"

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2018 - 05:19 AM)

Especially if its a bet about an objective truth. Chances are, you provide overwhelming evidence for your position, the dumbass won't accept your evidence or will just change the rules and then claim the money you allegedly owe him.

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2018 - 05:17 AM)

I've just been reminded of a life lesson: Never take a bet with a dumbass unless there's a neutral authority accepted by both sides that will decide on the winner.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 October 2018 - 03:42 AM)

Peace was never an option.

@  Foffy : (15 October 2018 - 11:43 PM)

Depends. Who won?

@  Waspinator : (15 October 2018 - 11:37 PM)

Should I be worried that my 40-year-old parrot got into a roaring contest with a Jurassic World toy?

@  Paladin : (15 October 2018 - 04:38 PM)

was the bride's name Sarah Connor?

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 October 2018 - 04:38 PM)

A sawed off shotgun is fairly easy to conceal. Of course, they're also illegal.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 October 2018 - 04:19 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2018 - 04:10 PM)

I don't wanna think about the body type where a SHOTGUN is concealed carry.

@  MEDdMI : (15 October 2018 - 04:08 PM)

"If there any objections-" *Both sides pull out ridiculous amounts of weapons against each other*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 October 2018 - 03:57 PM)

Someone else quips in the comments, "I have heard of a shotgun wedding, but this is ridiculous!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 October 2018 - 03:57 PM)

I saw a random shipost on Facebook. Evidently, there are people in the U.S. who have to ask wedding guests not to bring their concealed-carry weapons.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 October 2018 - 07:09 AM)

Hey.. I tried to say that google game streaming actually works pretty good... Now if that's depressing, that's a WHOLE nother ball of wax. ;D

@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2018 - 06:29 AM)

The box is being used exactly as it was meant to: for random conversation. If it's depressing it's because the group whom use it is neither oblivious or stupid and we happen to be discussing depressing things.

@  fourteenwings : (15 October 2018 - 12:27 AM)

I'm starting to feel like the box is being used in lieu of actual serious threads (not to be terrible but seeing this as soon as you get on the forums is depressing).

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 October 2018 - 10:35 PM)

It's shameful that randos in richer countries pretend like it's not happening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 October 2018 - 10:35 PM)

Small island countries are already sinking below sea level and being consumed by the ocean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2018 - 10:28 PM)

Which is why poorer countries are some of the ones most worried at this point, I imagine. Wealthy countries like the US, Canada, etc won't feel the effects nearly as soon

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2018 - 10:05 PM)

Realistically: there doesn't have to be truly catastrophic impacts to screw us all over. Frequent enough storms will disrupt our infrastructure, which will hobble our ability to rebuild quickly and cause pretty big backslides in quality of life. I don't mean "oh no, I can't charge my iphone", more like "dysentery is as common as the flu because the resources just aren't there to clean the water anymore".

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2018 - 10:03 PM)

If no, then procrastinate some more

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2018 - 10:03 PM)

Well, the most important question: is it going to stop me getting some drive thru at McDonald's?

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2018 - 09:21 PM)

It's kinda nuts seeing insurance ads tell everyone multiple 500-year storms a year is the new normal, but the general attitude over is still at best *shrug*.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 October 2018 - 08:18 PM)

Sad thing is... Boomers are still leaving their vile taint on a lot of the younger generation.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2018 - 08:08 PM)

Certainly the boomers won't live to see it, and they're the worst generation for not giving a shit

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2018 - 08:08 PM)

We're seeing some of it, yeah, but very likely all the truly catastrophic impacts will hit once most of us are dead

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2018 - 07:46 PM)

Stupid thing is: We ARE seeing results in our lifetime, but it's still slow enough that we, as a culture, are willing to ignore it despite what the scientists are saying.

@  MEDdMI : (14 October 2018 - 07:41 PM)

Captain Planet we need you

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2018 - 07:30 PM)

As long as nothing interrupts their morning latte and consumer-driven lifestyles, they're good

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2018 - 07:26 PM)

Because humans are notoriously bad at caring about things they don't see happening within their lifetimes

@  Shrug : (14 October 2018 - 06:09 PM)

And no one else in my class cared. None of my teachers cared. My parents didn't care.

@  Shrug : (14 October 2018 - 06:08 PM)

One of my more frustrating memories regarding Climate Change is from when I was in 2nd grade in 1996. My poor redneck middle-of-nowhere school had a decade old science textbook written so a 2nd grader could read it and it had enough about the impending Global Warming that I was worried as a 6 year old.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2018 - 04:45 PM)

Plus a MUCH higher chance of lake effect snow: since milder means the great lakes will take that much longer to freeze over.

Or story line

 

Fighting games are not really known for have the most comprehensive stories with how many characters there are each story has to be more open ended as to accommodate the characters but there are few that are fun or good. And some characters have a good story arc so what are some of your favorite story bits from fighting games?

Soul Edge/Soul Calibur, before they made Calibur just as messed up as Edge. :rolleyes I felt that those games gave off a sense of adventure that you normally didn't get from a fighting game (also it still has my all-time favorite character select theme :D). 2 did it with a great all-around soundtrack, varied and vibrant stages, and really extensive bios for the characters and all their unlockable bonus weapons, while 3 had that choose-your-own-adventure-style story mode, though it did end up repeating a lot of 'events' across different characters.

I have always loved the overall stories in the Mortal Kombat series, but I really love the presentation for the story mode in the more recent Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat X.
Plus, I like reboots that do not completely discount everything that has come before (the recent Star Trek movies, or Days of Future Past are good examples for me).

Yeah I'm of the same opinion as Xellos. The MK story was always interesting to begin with, and with the continuity reboot MK9 brought us even better now while still acknowledging the 1st 8 games happened as they are what brought the 9th to be. That's a nice way of having your cake and eating it too.

In the same vein, the Injustice universe... and of course it's the same guys as MK so you know they know how to make a fighting game universe work.
Stand back, I gotta practice my stabbin'. HA-HAAAA!

MK9 and MKX.

 

Tekken's main story and Soul Calibur's was very good too.

 

Street Fighter isn't bad, since they try to make a chronological order out of it (from earliest to latest):

 

SF1

SFZ / SFA

SF2

SF4

SF5

SF3

Ok. A bit more seriously, Ive really loved how Ryu and Ken have evolved from essentially the same moveset to having different touches to each that are completely logical within their personalities. Even better? This is a continuing story told purely through gameplay and not cutscene dialogue.

I've always loved Alpha 3 because of the Guile/Charlie/Chun-Li/Bison lore leading up to SFII.

 

The story mode in Tekken 7 was really, really fun to play through.

I think Mortal Kombat's story was the first one I got into. I mean, at first, Street Fighter didn't have much of a story to speak of. But Mortal Kombat was the first to have some kind of continuity between games. And of course it translated pretty well to the big screen too...at least for the first movie. Let's just leave it at that and pretend there was no second movie. Problem was when the sequels started muddying everything up so bad that eventually they had to do a complete reboot and start from scratch. At that point I just became like "meh, I'll still play the games for the game play, but the story is dead to me."

Street Fighter on the other hand started out kinda weak. About the only story bits I came away with is that Blanka is a momma's boy, Chun Li seeks revenge for her father and Ryu just wanders the world looking for a fight. Well, okay. Nice character motivations, but that doesn't equate with much in the way of a real story.

But then Street Fighter went Alpha and got some anime treatment. There started to actually be two distinct stories that both pretty awesome. There was the whole Chun-Li, Guile, Charlie, Cammy, Bison arc which I loved. There was also the whole Ryu, Ken, Goken, Sakura, Akuma arc which was also pure awesome. Make a movie out of either of those stories and I am there.

And it's not just a normal hero's save the world against powerful force like Mortal Kombat. Street Fighter really has some deep character motivations here. Ryu's trying to keep control of the evil force that's inside him while fighting against the monster that killed his sensei. Chun-Li is trying to avenge her father while also bringing down the most powerful crime cartel in existence.

So...Street Fighter...I guess is the answer to your question.
