Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

So, uh, Dante's battle theme came out.

 

 

Setting aside my opinion of the band, I still really don't care for it. Deathcore, or whatever you want to classify this as, really isn't my thing and the vocals are atrocious. Even the mixing of the song seems pretty bad. Can't hear the guitars, the drums are basically silent, and the vocals are a bit too loud. If they passed on bring Shootie back, why not stick with Combichrist? They did well with DmC.

Okay, I was planning on getting it already, but the mega buster definitely makes me more eager.

 

I'm wondering about the chronology of the trailer scenes, now.  I figured that Dante returned from Hell over the course of the game, and I actually thought that the scene where he got a new client would take place at the end of the game, but then the Kylo Ren-looking guy walked in, and apparently he's the third playable character.

 

Looks like the Majin Devil Trigger is the standard now, or at least his standard form kept the wings.  Which fold into a coat.  So silly, so cool, and I wonder if the makers were thinking of Gargoyles when they came up with it.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

Okay, tracked down "subhuman" Dante's theme.

 

The music itself isn't too bad, but yeah the singer isn't very good, and with the information of what the singer has done, I'm kinda hoping they do something else for the theme.

Summary of Game WATCH Article (Style switching Confirmed!)
renderTimingPixel.png

Link to the article: https://game.watch.impress.co.jp/

I don't have time to do a full translation right now so I'll try to just summarize all the new info.

  • There will be more weapons for Dante than those shown in the trailer.

  • Balrog's Blow mode will have increased damage with each punch.

  • It's possible to customize the order of weapon switching.

  • Real-time style switching is confirmed. (Royalguard and Swordmaster are mentioned in the article)

Other minor tidbits
  • Balrog is named after the character of the same name in Street Fighter.

  • Dante's head had to be made smaller than the original concept art due to the game's over-the-shoulder camera.

  • During development, Cavaliere was originally intended to be given to Nero by someone. The designer surprised everyone with the idea of using a motorcycle as a weapon after being asked to design a new devil arm.

  • Correcting this google translation someone posted: Majin Dante (魔人ダンテ) is indeed mentioned, but that's what the demon form is called in Japanese. No mention of Majin Form (真魔人Shin-Majin) from DMC2 returning.

EDIT: More info from this Dengeki article
  • There will be a boss with the word Angelo in its name.

  • 4 styles from previous DMC titles are confirmed. Rainstorm is confirmed to return.

Just FYI, that first Dante gameplay video skips the cutscene before the boss fight but shows the one after, which might be why it got removed from IGN.

 

The more I watch of Dante in this, the more I think that Dante's character in the second game is now part of his intended character arc.  The games have never really hid the fact that Dante is dealing with some major trauma from all the crap that's happened to him.  I don't think that I'd go as far as saying that his fun-loving aspects are just an act, but it's kinda telling that the only time he really lightened up in 2 was when he was fighting, and that seems to be the case in this game, too.  There's points where Dante is between fights and just seems...  weary.  And he's gone from using rigged coin flips as an excuse to help people to actively avoiding his own allies.

 

Going in chronological order, his parents were killed in childhood, his brother killed masses of humans in a bid for power, dropped into hell rather than let Dante save him, got lead into trap by a woman that looked like his mother, fought his mind controlled brother, who then exploded, then the demon clone of his mother seemingly died, then he encountered his dead brother's previously unmentioned son, which couldn't have brought up good memories.

 

With all that, the real question is whether he decided to become a coin-flipping weirdo before or after trying to drink himself to death.

 

Hmmn.  The IGN footage showed Dante fight a miniboss wearing Nelo Angelo armor.  I don't think that Vergil has gotten any less dead recently, but it looks like at least one of the factions is using Mundus' old gear.

Enh.  I'm not surprised that people keep clamoring for his return, but nothing has even hinted at a resurrection.  I can't remember whether the Order using parts of Vergil's corpse to turn people into hybrids was from something official or just a rumor, but the Sparda cultists that had his old sword didn't try to bring him back.

 

There is a theory that Vergil is the guy that ripped off Nero's arm, but I haven't found it even kinda convincing.  At least that theory remembered that Vergil was a bad guy in life, something that a lot of fans seem to gloss over.

I think there's pretty strong circumstantial evidence about the mysterious visitor who took the Devil Bringer. Have you seen the cutscenes from the playtester leak? There's some interesting stuff there but if you're trying to avoid details like that then I don't want to spoil. The sudden reveal of Nelo Angelo enemies is a neat twist, or at least keeps us guessing. I'm interested to see how it ultimately plays out.

And apparently Capcom are putting in microtransactions tied to orbs and levelling. Basically, you can buy more orbs to buy more skills faster. This has the potential to be really irritating if they decide to push up the prices for the most desirable and effective skills as an incentive to make people spend rewl cash so they can skip grinding.

Everything elde about the game sounds utterly awesome though!

It's going to be the exact same thing as they had in DMC4SE. Which means it's going to be completely and utterly ignorable and you don't have to worry about it. Also apparently the game so far hands out orbs by the bucket full.
