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

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  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...

Meh, more robots and mutants for me to shoot. I am having genuine fun with this: It's fallout, but multiplayer. My friends are standing right there, fighting with me. I love it.

 

The technical side though is pissing me off. I'm not talking about the game engine, I mean the launcher. First the deletion bug, NOW it's not getting a decent rate yet still monopolizing my entire internet connection. I missed the beta session today due to work, but would have missed it anyway because I was completely unable to pull down the 30 gig hugging patch (that's not a patch, and that an entire other game. God damnit bethesda. Seriously?), and I'm probably going to miss the thursday session too since same problem.

 

Oh, and I've already modded it! Ha, chill, I'm not a griefer or nothing, I was perusing the INI files, trying to find a way to turn off godrays, and found the section for pipboy colour. I changed the values to reflect the colour white: and about doubled the intensity of the pipboy flashlight. Upside: my game also shows everyone elses pipboy in the same colour. So when you're in a group, it's brighter at night for you, and easier to find your friends. I suspect it will eventually be an option in game, and more than likely fixed with the last patch.

So it's more of a "give it a bit to work out the bugs and for people to cut off the more pressing warts" thing than a "Behold this inglorious garbage fire we cobbled together" thing?

I'm just going to wait to see how prevalent cheating is in game. The fact you can pretty much edit ini files with impunity and the server doesn't care has me concerned.


Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

I want to play. So very badly. Can't. Still 30 odd hours on the patch download. The hugging launcher is running at about 200 kbps and monopolizing the entire internet connection to do it. It's an known problem and beth ain't done SHIT. I suspect because the majority having the problem aren't in the US.

I think I'll wait a few weeks before grabbing the game, give it a bit of time to work out some more kinks. I can play some Lets Go Eevee in the meantime, I suppose.

(still gonna get the game, bugs be damned. I'm in it for the exploration anyway)

Okay, so... the game bills itself with "all the people you met are actual players" or something to that effect.

 

That means the dev don't think super mutants and scorched are people.

Alright, so I'm enjoying the item modification system on 76. You don't know how to do everything right off the bat, only being barred from building by your perks. You learn stuff as you break things down, or buy/find schematics. Thankfully, I rock a hunting rifle, and the scorched carry them in spades. Same with the pump shotgun. I've worked out a LOT of rifle mods, and have a pretty kick ass weapon despite it being only level 10. Between my engaging at range, and the sneak damage bonus... well...

 

I did it again.

Alright, learned something today. Well, technically last night but CONFIRMED it today. There are events in the world at large: while the number of enemies in these events multiply based on how many people are participating, the LEVEL of the enemies is determined (apparently.) by the level of the person who first enters or triggers the event.

 

I was in morgantown at mama dolce's for the feed the people event: two level sixes were there first. I roll in at 14 with a NICE shotgun. I blew through most of my ammo, but was one shotting everything because they were leveled between 1-6. I then was in the right place at the right time to do the vertidrone event at morgantown airport, and I did it alone. About 5-6 scorched per wave, and all the scorched were levelled 6-10. Got me a sledgehammer!

 

So yeah, don't know how useful that information will be, but there we are.

Alright, you win so far. That is awesome.

 

In unrelated news: I found a suit of power armor tonight. I was roaming around beckley with my boy dave, and I happened across it outside the barricades. It was all shiny and perfect and had two pieces of t-45 armor on it I could not use. Not high enough level yet, but the frame is awesome. And you can compress it into your inventory and it only weighs ten pounds!
