They fight you with sparkles.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 03:40 AM)

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.

Also great that it has Aliens VS Predator on it.

 


I hope since it has WiFi, that it gets updates / more games.

I like the game selection, particularly games like AvP and Darkstalkers that I've never played before and/or don't already have several copies of.

But that price point is way too high for a plug and play. $300, I'm getting myself one of those Mortal Kombat 1-UP cabinets.

Yeah, $300 is the price of a Arcade 1-UP cabinet.  And aside from Aliens vs Predator, there is NOTHING on that device that can't be gotten elsewhere in some form, all for a much lower price.

 

I would much rather a "Capcom Collection" of some sort featuring their licensed stuff, even at a premium price than clutter my living area with MORE limited gaming devices.

Wait you never play one of the dozens of Dalkstalkers/Night Warriors/Vampire Savior ports out there?

Nope. I never saw any of them. Did it ever even come out on any Nintendo systems? I mean, I've seen Morrigan because of the Vs. games. And she's why I would love to get my hands on a Darkstalkers game. But I've never even seen one irl, let alone played it.

$300?!

 

Capcom, you are greatly overvaluing your place in my gaming nostalgia.


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?

Nope.  The Saturn had the only decent ports of the game for a long time.  They had a Vampire collection that came out a few years ago for the PS4 and XB1.

I'd be more interested in the control deck if you could have used it as a controller for other games. But as it stands: recreating the arcade experience for a handful of games (granted with a really good quality control system.) which are readily available for cheaper from other sources isn't really worth it.

 

I am interested in seeing it hacked though. I hope they do something spectacular with it. THAT might be enough to get me to drop the 400+ it'll be if it's even available in canada.

You see, I'm not going to argue that the thing doesn't look well made. It looks extremely well made. But it still amounts to a plug and play.

At first, people wanted nothing to do with the PS4 because of the price point. It let you play Bluray movies unlike the 360. Technically it had the better specs. It didn't have the red ring of death. But people didn't buy it because of the price point. It was a well made console. But because it was well made, it was an over-priced console and nobody wanted to buy it until it started coming down in price.

Same thing here. Sure it has better specs than most plug and plays. Sure it has the Sanwa sticks. But it's still a plug and play. I was willing to spend $300 for far less games on my Arcade 1-Up because, well, it was an arcade cabinet. Yeah it had fewer games than the 30th Anniversary collection I got for my Switch for far less money. But there's a certain wow factor to actually owning an arcade cabinet. There's not the same wow factor for a plug and play, no matter the bells and whistles.

Now, if they do use that USB port to allow for more games to be used on the system (totally plausible I'm sure), well then it's no longer just a typical plug and play. It becomes a rather inexpensive but very viable home console that specializes in arcade perfect games. Now that I would be a lot more willing to shell out $300 for.

They also had an excellent port for the PSP at launch and Darkstalkers also had good ports on the PS1 and PS3 had remastered version digitally

 

But Nintendo has never had a single Darkstalkers games (Ill check the Switch store in a bit)

Once one is familiar enough with the layout, I'm sure not much, but on the other hand, I expect to be able to see what button is what out of the corner of my eye WITHOUT having to take my eye off of a screen to wonder "where did it go?" or "which one is the one I want?"

Okay... first thought, How are you supposed to play that comfortably?
Like if you have it resting it on you and you'r playing single player you either position your arms off to one side or you slide over the arcade stick and depending on your chair may tilt it on an angle
Like... you need a table in front of you to play this

I just downloaded Darkstalkers Resurrection on the PS3. I had to turn off the filters because they're just downright ugly. Butit does play very much like a Street Fighter game, which is good. I see two characters I want to learn: Morrigan and Felicia.

Of course this means my need for this $300 system is even less than it was before.
