@  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.

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:35 AM)

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  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)

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  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

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

Thats why i said if they can fix the forge :p

As for the gauntlet being useless without the stones, whos to say they wont be trying to get them from thanos to use to put everything back? Thanos' gauntlet is toast, or at least severly damaged. Assuming the only way to undo what was done is to use another gauntlet, then theres potentially one just waiting to be made

They didnt need to SHOW a mold or whatever it was when eitri says he made it for thanos. Showing it is redundant unless its gonna figure into endgame in a chekovs gun kinda thing

But its all just a guess. I could be and am expecting to be wrong.

Okay, I just woke up from this dream and I have to post about it. It's very rare that I recall dreams with such clarity, and this is the most fitting topic I can post it in.



So, I had a dream that I was watching an unknown Avengers movie with someone, I'm not sure who. It seemed to be part of some box set. What's more, I seem to be playing this film on a carosel-like DVD or Blu-ray player, which had a lid that was somewhat fiddly to set in place properly.

I recall the scene that was playing during the pause screen before the movie is started featured Iron Man trying to get in touch with someone, possibly Captain America, and failing to reach him. Exasperated, Tony muttered "fine, I'll do it myself" before hitting his afterburners and flying into danger, as he prepared to attack unknown forces that were swarming and attacking an aircraft carrier. I think it may have been a helicarrier, and thus its probably based off of the events in the first film, although the carrier was in the water.

I also remember what seemed to have been outtakes from a scene where Loki and Thor were somewhere out in the woods, very close to the edge of what appeared to be a sunny clearing, camping out. And Loki had made breakfast on some sort of grill. He told Thor good morning, as he was cooking, wearing his normal somewhat fancy Loki-clothing I might add.

Thor was eating what appeared to be a stack of pancakes that he had speared with his fork, and was eating them in a circle, making his way inward towards the center of the stack, and I recall saying "...as Thor eats a stack of pancakes like a friggin popsicle!"

As it turns out there were hot dogs in between the pancakes here and there, and Thor was going on about how good it was, and Loki mentioned he knew that if anyone would appreciate his cooking, it was Thor.

The scene continued, and I recalled wondering if Thor had any actual taste refinement, or if he was the type to just eat anything. If it was the latter, that would totally explain Loki's attitude towards his cooking.

Thor went on to make an "aaaak!" sound that made the audience think he might be choking, but as it turns out he was trying to think and whatever he was trying to express was right on the tip of his brain but he couldn't quite get it out. As he wracked his brain, he leaned back and frustratedly tapped his forehead with the palm of his free right-hand. He said something along the lines of the following!:

"Ah! And what is this wonderful seasoning, that tastes like the rare fermented thousand-year-old fruit of an -unintelligible-?"

Loki went on to say, if I'm recalling correctly, that it was Worcestershire sauce. Yeah, Worcestershire sauce on a stack of hot dog pancakes.

Anyway, Thor continued to comment on how good the food was, and in what seemed to be the blooper portion of the outtake, one of his complimentary asides about the food was "NO hepatitis c...", implying that Asgardians can taste disease organisms in their food, which would affect the flavor of what they were eating, but otherwise was absolutely harmless to them.

That must have been the point that people started cracking up and the Crew starts laughing and yells to cut the scene.

Yeah... now I'm kind of mad that this scene doesn't exist. 🤣

Thor's totally the kind of guy who would spear a stack of pancakes and eat them like that.

Of course Drax would spear the pancakes. If he doesn't, then Rocket will take them before he can eat them.

Just realized - Loki probably would use Maple Syrup on the pancakes but TELL Thor he used Worcestershire, as a giggle.

 

Then Thor just innocently puts Worcestershire sauce on pancakes (Much to the mute horror of the other Avengers. Banner makes a move to tell Thor, but Strange hushes him, oddly curious), Loki gets a Cheshire grin, Thor takes a bite, pauses, slow chews...eyes lock on Loki.

 

"Brother, you lied to me."

 

Loki, barely able to stifle a laugh, begins to make a grandiose proclamation but suddenly registers the big, stupid grin on Thor's face. Worcestershire sauce dribbling from the corners of his mouth.

 

"This is better!"

 

Loki is stunned, the Avengers are stunned, Strange chuckles a little. Peter frantically grabs for the Worcestershire.

Now, supposing that there was only one stack of pancakes left and both Thor and Drax were to spear it with their forks at the same time...

 

 

Civil War 3?

 

 

(CW2 is obviously between the two Peters' opposing views over Footloose)

if captain marvel swoops in and is the one that ends thanos, im gonna be REALLY disappointed. it should be one of the originals and has earned the victory.

 

thnk of it this way-if you were playing a game for hours upon hourse, doing all the hard work to get through it, only to come to the end boss only to have some character you didnt even know was in the game comes in a finishes it off for you. you wouldnt be happy. you did all the work, put in all that time, only to have someone else pretty much finish it for you. you wouldnt be happy. thats how ill feel if this happens

Benatar.  The Milano's repairs were never completed by Rocket after it crashed on Ego's planet.

Wait, so technically you're not wrong. But the Guardians' ship in Infinity War is called the Benatar.
