Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

@  Pennpenn : (24 May 2019 - 09:56 PM)

It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:26 PM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

Doesn't seem to be a thread for this, which is surprising if true.

It's good but really wears its inspirations on its sleeve. Feels like if you put the Raimi movies, the second Raimi game and Arkham Knight in a blender.

I'm absolutely loving it. I'm at about 45% and it doesn't really seem to be doing anything revolutionary, but everything it does is done well. The web-traversal is excellent, the combat is fun (once you get the hang of it), there's heaps of variety in mission types and yet I haven't found a single objective that's annoying or frustrating.

 

I got a "rare" trophy for using the fast travel five times, and I was like... only five? That's rare? But it's just so much fun to swing the whole length of the map. The fast travel scenes are adorable, but I've only used it if I was in a hurry. 

 

Not super fond of their Peter design, but everyone else looks phenomenal and the story and character work is really great. This is the first game I've played in like two years that completely overrides my "put Overwatch back in the tray" urge, and if you'd told me a few weeks ago that it would be good enough that I haven't yet bothered to buy the new TR, I'd have laughed at you. 

 

Can it beat GoW for GotY? I don't know, but as great as GoW was, I was still switching regularly back to Overwatch. So I guess I know where my vote will land.

Just finished the story mode yesterday, and I spent a good chunk of today going for 100% completion.
 
Nothing revolutionary by the standards of modern, open-world, action-type games, but a truly excellent superhero experience. I loved everything from the subtly different animations caused by the same button press depending on the characters' positions, the mini-puzzles that approximate what it's like to actually be smart, and the brilliant Jonah Jameson podcast.

So, if you are playing this game and have not completed the story, probably don't read this week's Spider-Geddon #0.

 

Super cool that they're bringing this Spidey into the books, but that one issue packs in a lot of late-game spoilers. Like, y'know, beyond "Otto goes bad" (GASP!).

Do they try to come up with an in-story explanation for how dirt-poor Peter Parker managed to buy himself 55 backpacks over the course of his school years?

If you find a certain backpack it contains a trophy from a Fisk sponsored science contest. Peter explains he morally never cashed the prize money cheque but happily accepted the other part of the prize- a lifetime supply of student backpacks.

It is a very awkward fudge but the whole backpack quest is. Peter left a lot of ID around the city.

In this way I think the Riddler quest works better. You're looking for stuff you'd find around Gotham and it unlocks a related story for the player. So find a Dent campaign poster for instance and get a story about what Two Face has been up to.

Ignoring story missions because I don't want this fun New York replaced by the dystopian one later in the game.

 

Got all the backpacks and unlocked the MCU home made suit.

The city sure does get jacked up. I've just gone from "there's nothing left to do" to "there's eighty guys to fight on every street corner, forever".

I'm at 75% now and struggling to imagine how they can fit the things I still expect to see into that last 25.

Yeah, while Spider-Man is a fun game.. they -really- dropped the ball in the final third I feel.

 

They needed to take a few lessons from Sucker Punch and Infamous.

It's fun but flawed. Having a big open New York is now a standard for a Spidey game but there isn't really much to do it. Random crime encounters start to get tedious and as far as I'm aware you can miss characters who give you side quests. There's photography quests/camera mode but as far as I'm aware the game doesn't save either of those and you have to use the Share button.

You can't miss any sidequests, HC. They're tied to achievements and no achievements are permanently missable.
