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...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

Glad to see the PS4 BC. I really hope it is also PS3/2/1 BC compatable.

I would also love some uprezzing for PS1 and 2 games. But I seriously doubt that'll be a thing.

I can understand lacking PS3 compatibility, even PS2 for that matter.  But there is ZERO reason I shouldn't be able to play my digital PSOne or PSP titles on the system, not with what home-brew people have been able to accomplish on platforms a fraction of the power of the PS4, much less what the PS5 should be able to do.  And that includes uprezzing and similar features to make the games look better.

If the PS3 and PS4 could emulate PS2 with little to no problem *proved by hackers* there is no reason the PS5 shouldn't be able to handle it.

Because heaven forbid a company should learn from their mistakes and simply do better the next time. If they'd simply used the NTSC versions of games, that alone would've made the PS1 classic more popular. If they'd been more careful in their game choice, they could've had an absolute hit.

I don't care so much about backwards compatibility. I mean, it's nice to have those options, but I already have a PS2, 3 and 4. So my bases are already covered. What I would like though would to have PSP games on the PSN network. I would love to give Crisis Core and Dissidia Duodecim another try.

Watch them not even put an optical drive in it at all, making it only "backward compatible" with games you bought digitally.

I was thinking of upgrading to a ps4 pro..   I assume the 5 will be native 4k and I should probably wait for that instead?

If you want to wait another two years and pay a bit more than go ahead. Otherwise, just get a PS4 pro.

So this seems like a good place to ask....

 

I kind of want a PS4. With the PS5 coming next year or in 2021 - which PS4 is the more "worth it" console to get?

 

I don't have a 4K TV (yet).

 

Is it worth shelling out for the Pro at this point?

I don't have a Pro. From what I've heard though, the specs are supposed to make games run slightly better even if you don't have 4K. That said though, if all you're looking for is something to hold you over for a couple years until the PS5 comes out, I'd still advise getting the cheaper version. It still plays the same games and I've never had a problem running anything on my base PS4.

Well you have a couple of options:

 

1. Go get a PS4 Pro and a TCL UHD TV. You can get a 55" 4K Smart TV with HDR for $350 or less these days, so I would advise picking one of those up. We got one for my mom last year and it is amazing.

 

2. Get a regular PS4. I have the regular Star Wars Theme PS4, and it works pretty well on my 4K UHD TV. I haven't tried it on my 1080ps TVs but I imagine it would be nice on them too.

 

3. Wait two years and buy a new TV and a PS5.

The Pro does offer broad overhead performance improvements.  But a bulk of its benefits are on higher resolution TVs.

 

I figure it's at least worth waiting until the fall to learn any details of the new device, and the Pro will probably see price reductions in the holiday season as well.

Yeah, like I said in (I think) the Fallout 76 thread, my gaming TV is an ancient 720p set. Pre-LED, HDR, and all that jazz. It's getting updated (thanks for that TV rec Predaking!) - I just haven't decided when. Probably sooner, rather than later, since low res screens have been bothering my eyes lately.

 

I kind of don't want to get a PS4 Pro, since the PS5 is coming and I'm 80% certain I'm going to get one of those, and paying for a Pro right now with a replacement on the way just bugs me. But I'm also leaning towards doing anyway. Maybe.

 

If I didn't need a TV upgrade, I'd just get the regular PS4 and be happy until the PS5 comes out.
