(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

what would Canada do with Yogi?

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

what next? YELLOWSTONE?

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

@  Bass X0 : (01 July 2020 - 05:06 AM)

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

I transform in six steps from human to human sitting on my ass at the computer and back again!

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

There are already rumors out that the Shang Tsung ending is the Canon one. Raiden and Fujin tell him "OrderRealm and ChaosRealm are next". Now consider where Shang Tsung sent Geras after Shao Khan beat him (the Havik mention could be foreshadowing) and there is apparently datamined content relating to OrderRealm (though that could just be the latest Kombat League which is centered on Order).

Personally I would LOVE to see where the Liu Kang ending goes and explore the Great Kung Lao epoch.

Btw, are those alternate RoboCop suits canon in some sort of RoboCop media? Like that metal loincloth?

And, er, what was Arnold's scooter Friendship in reference to? If there is.

 
The metal loincloth is not in any movie.  NRS gave Robocop some alternate suits that make him look like the cyber ninjas.
Oh, they were going for a cyber ninja motif? Ok, I get it. Maybe say something that RoboCop or OCP had some dealings or shared cyborg procedures with the cyber Lin kuei (spelling).

I was just thinking what the hex kind of law enforcement group would OK having metal loincloths in their formal uniforms, haha

Also cool that RoboCop mentions Kurtis Stryker in one of his intros.



Edit - holy cow! I know Light Balance from Got Talent and, what, they inspired Raiden's Friendship?

True.  Maybe the ending would lead to a retelling of the Great Kung Lao's story.

 

As for Shang Tsung being the canon ending, that may happen.  Especially since MK2011 began with Shao Kahn beating Blaze instead of Taven.

So I haven't played a MK game since Mortal Kombat Trilogy on the N64. Fighting games just really aren't my scene.

 

But one of my YouTubers did a run through of MK11: Aftermath and I gotta say getting Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa to play Shang Tsung again was an absolute treat. The man really does not get the respect he deserves as an actor and you can really tell he's enjoying himself in Aftermath.

I finally got Shang Tsung last night (thank you, payday). He never was a main of mine, but dang, playing this guy's fun! The way they handled his morphing abilities was brilliant. The fact that they got Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa to voice him was just icing on the icing cake.

LTTP on this, but not having played, I'm curious now what they did.

Well the reason I say that was because in MK2 and MK3 they had inputs to let you morph into any of the other characters. Starting with Deadly Alliance, they dropped the entire mechanic except in cinematic, I'm guessing because with the switch to detailed 3D models, morphing into all the other characters was too much.

Starting with 9, they added in the morphing again only very limited. You could morph into your opponent and I think one other pre-determined character.

Here they let you morph into the character you're facing Some other moves you can slot include Shake (morph into smoke to parry projectiles), Slide (morph into Reptile and use his slide), Super Kick (morph into Rain). His Fatal Blow also includes a bunch of morphing.

So while you still can't really morph freely into other characters like in 2 and 3, this is the most in-game morphing he's been capable ofin a while.

He also has an Ermac morph where he telekinetically grabs you. If you count his fatal blow, he morphs into each of the pallete-swap ninjas except for Tremor.
