@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

If they were all gone, I'd expect Gamora to have heard about it. I'm going to write off the Nova-corp record as a possible continuity blip, and move on.

I don't think it needs to be a continuity blip, just a wink to those paying attention. Thanos considers what he did to Gamora's world good and right...when it likely is what resulted in the other half of the population dying off. Thanos is a unhinged maniac utterly convinced of his own solutions he fails to see how utterly monstrous they are.

 

In case anyone needed more of a clue beyond the fact for all his talk about culling the universe for its own good, he himself was always immune to the effects of his actions (Right down to using the stones to heal the mortal wound Thor gave him).

 

That's not even talking about his hypocrisy with the Dwarves that built the Gauntlet. 300 souls aboard...leaves one alive. Thanos' math is screwy.

James Gunn said it was a straight-up retcon -- when he was developing Gamora's backstory for this one, he decided that in service to the plot, he had to contradict the barely-noticed reference to her species from GOTG. I think we're supposed to take Thanos at his word about the planet's current status.

Nah. The MCU is good about vaguely keeping their films to the source material when it comes to story beats. While Thanos' fate is up in the air, it's pretty clear that just like the Gauntlet storyline Nebula's going to end up with the Gauntlet in the end. Adam Warlock was set up in GotG2, but I really question whether or not they can pull off that guy as guardian of the stones within a single two and a half to three hour film. So for sake of argument, I see Nebula being the Adam Warlock of the film ultimately and heading off to live in solitude with the soul of Gamora to keep her company.

 

There's also the fact Zoe Saldana (the actress who plays Gamora) is Neytiri in James Cameron's Avatar sequels and is presently filming those (and they're doing four of them back to back), so it's likely Gamora's fate in Infinity War is going to stand.

 

Chances are also very high Iron Man, and possibly all the original Avengers, end up biting it. It's not by circumstance that the ones left were the original five and none of them are getting any younger and in the case of Iron Man, getting any weaker. Iron Man was effectively a Green Lantern last film with an armor that could do anything (He survived being hit by a MOON with nanobots, when only a few years ago his briefcase armor was trashed by Dynamo's whips). Keeping him at his present tech level in the MCU would pose a lot of challenges since they haven't had an "Armor Wars" event that gets his level of tech into the hands of his opponents. Heck. Ghost had to be a villain for Ant-Man and Wasp because of that power gap. Only two that would exist in the MCU that could match Tony right now would be the real Mandarin (Who has been hinted at and I'd love to see Andy Lau play) and Zeke Stane (Son of Obadiah).

 

Plus, his death and/or the deaths of the other original Avengers would be a fitting "passing the torch" for the MCU to the newer generation of heroes that would arise in the absent of the Avengers. Namely Disney's re-acquisition to the rights to the Fantastic Four and X-Men.

Naughty spambot's nonsense immortalised here so that the lovely bunch who kindly responded to it don't have their effort wasted.

Instead of all or one of the avengers beating thanos by brute force, time travel or getting their own infinity gauntlet, I predict Avengers Endgane would end with thanos choosing to reverse the snap. During the whole movie, the Avengers are going to try to do their thing to beat Thanos or reverse the snap but it's going to fail. It'll ultimately be one or the core Avengers convincing thanos he was wrong or maybe Thanos talking to Gamora or the dead ultimately choosing to reverse the snap or 'some solution'. Thanos was humanised and portrayed as a sympathetic/ tragic protagonist in Infinity War he was the focus of the entire movie it wouldn't make sense for him be the big bad villain then just die to the Avengers in a fist fight. It would also be slightly underwhelming if Thor or Captain Marvel killed Thanos in the final battle and it wouldn't measure up to Infinity War. What better ending to the arc of Thanos if he chooses to reverse the snap or comply with whatever the solution the Avengers came up with. While he wouldn't be a hero, his character arc would be similar to Darth Vader in the OT. I don't know precisely what the solution/plan of the Avengers are but I feel like this would be the most powerful way to end Avengers Endgame. Instead of invoking cosmic beings such as eternity, or complex ideas with the quantum realm and antman which would take a while for the regular audience to understand, it's much more simpler and powerful for Thanos to realize his wrongs and reverse the snap. The simple way is sometimes much more powerful than a complex idea which would be awesome in a comic book or TV series but not so much in a 2 hour movie. Keeping Thanks alive would also allow them to potentially set up the Infinity Watch and bring back Thanos as a hero, villian or neutral character in the future.

Any ending other than the one that ends with Thanos being defeated by choosing hostess fruit pies over The Infinity Gauntlet will be a major disappointment.

Addendum: Thanos being defeated by Spider-Man, Hellcat, and some little kid with a dumb hat, and then being carted away by regular beat-cops is an acceptable substitute. Said beat-cops being played by Peter Weller and Ernie Hudson.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I'm not sure Thor really wants to go through holding that portal open again.

 

Also the Gauntlet is useless without the Stones. The Gauntlet just allows the wearer to safely harness the power of them and use them in tandem with each other. (As both the Tesseract and Power Stone both had adverse effects on the wielders when held without protection).

 

But fun thing about the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube. People are still confused as to why Red Skull is suddenly the guardian of the Soul Stone when the Tesseract shot him into space. The Cube grants the desires of the wielder. Skull wanted to be the one who controlled the power of the stones. The Tesseract granted his wish...after a fashion.
