I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:58 AM)

I'm talking about names that should pe easily pronouncable if you just bothered to pay attention to how it's done correctly instead of insisting on "I speak X language and this is how I prounounce it!"

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:57 AM)

I'm not even talking about foreign names that have sounds that don't exist in the speaker's language.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Something that really irks me is when people are persistently ignorant about the correct pronunciation of foreign names, especially when it's people they either admire or frequently interact with on a daily basis.

Just some thoughts on Devil Breakers. Not explicit ranking but broad categorizing.

High

Gerbera: Both versions. I value the Gerberas extremely highly for their aerial mobility, to the point I think it makes up for their lackluster Break Ages. I never use the Stamen Ray in normal combat since it leaves you stationary for so long, and the Petal Ray is pretty circumstantial. It kinda feels like the basic technique is too valuable to lose in exchange for either a lot of the time.

Punch Line: Great for harassment and singular enemy control. Jet Gadget is a bit gimmicky but fun (love the skate course for it in 15), and Boost Knuckle is extremely powerful without needing much setup.

Ragtime: While I do find the basic technique a bit hard to use (I still haven't plumbed its full depths either), its Break Age is one of the most overtly powerful abilities in the game. One of the safest and most reliable ways for Nero to dispose of Furies too, which was a Godsend on HaH.

 

High-Mid

 

Overture: Simplicity personified. A very straightforward, widely applicable attack that's good for deflects and staggering enemies. I don't use the Break Age that often, but in general the Overture is great as a no-frills weapon to slip into combos.

 

Mid

 

Buster: Ridiculously powerful, even out-stripping the Devil Bringer with ease. I only take it for specific purpose though (bosses, some elite enemies), since for normal battles and style building the Devil Bringer grab you can use without cost is sufficient.

Tomboy: It's a lot of fun but the window for being broken because you got hit using it is so large.

 

Mid-Low

 

Rawhide: The basic AOE doesn't have as much reach as I'd like, the Wire Snatch upgrade is the definition of circumstantial, and the Break Age takes setup to get proper use out of.

 

Low

Helter Skelter: Just awful, really. Slow to use, very long animation that leaves you extremely vulnerable.

Sweet Surrender, Pasta Breaker, Mega Buster: Just gimmicks.

Bunch of cool tech, and a reminder that Royal Guard is still ridiculous.

Just got DMC5 as a sort of early Easter present. From Amazon so i got the alternate costumes too. The game is awesome, obviously.

Making Nico a blonde for her alternate was interesting and i kinda prefer Neros alternate dark hair/white outfit/black weapons combo.

I've cooled on 5 a lot faster than I ever did on 4, on any of my three go-arounds (360, PC, SE). I've only given Bloody Palace a couple of goes with each character. A large part of it is that I don't find enemy and boss designs at all interesting, and the 'realistic' filter over everything makes me feel flumphy. I'm not a huge fan of Dante's weapons either.

Wow, why so? I'd consider it my favorite Dante arsenal out of the existing games.

 

That said I do run the Sparda in addition to the DSD, just for access to Roundtrip and whatnot.

3 is still my fave but I'd have to put five as a second. I couldn't stand playing 4's palace and higher difficulties for too long because of the awful enemy design that were either complete pushovers or the fish and the electric lizards.

 

That said, I'm not a fan of the realistic look either but it's passable.

The weapons just lack punch or flow for me; DSD is the best, but it's just Rebellion/Sparda with the fancier moves removed or harder to execute; Cerberus ice has no range and feels awful for me, while fire is good, but requires SM style; Cavaliere is great against groups of easily staggered guys, but outside of that it's got too much wind up and down; Balrog just doens't have the flow that Beowulf or Gilgamesh did, and although it's probably for the best, I miss Distorted Real Impact.

 

And it's not just Dante that I'm down on, I love V and Nero feels exactly the same as in 4, although I think Ex-Act is a little more forgiving now, so it's not just the new moveset. Maybe it's the amount of time I put into 4 that I'm just so used to its weapons and enemies.

Vergil bullying is a fine art, but using Quadruple S just to i-frame through Judgment Cuts is so swag I laughed out loud.
