If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

Posted 27 April 2019 - 01:59 PM

So, I know this is a huge thing in the gaming community. So let's talk about it. I've always been one to say I prefer physical media over digital. But in full honesty:

With movies the vast majority of what I have is Bluray or DVD. But I do have some digital only movies. Usually I only get digital if I just can't seem to find it physically. But I do have some digital movies.

With music, there are some bands I still get CD's for: Metallica, Godsmack, Evanescence, Lindsey Stirling and Within Temptation. But more and more I get most of my music digitally.

But a single video game can be quite a bit more expensive than any movie or music album. So here's my thoughts on digital games.

Bad:

1. You don't own a game. You merely own a license to play the game. This more than anything else seems to be the biggest sore spot for those arguing against digital only. You pay $60 for something, it would be nice to actually own something for your money.
 
2. Especially if consoles decide to go digital only, they better have really sizable storage. Many AAA games can be upwards of 50 gig. Even a Terabyte of storage can fill up fast over the typical lifespan of a console. If they're going to take away the optical drives, they should be giving us more storage, cause damn we're gonna need it.
 
3. As anyone who owns a Wii can attest, servers close down. At that point, you better have as many of your games downloaded to your limited storage as possible, because you're going to lose the rest. I did lose some of my purchases from the Wii when its server shut down. I downloaded all the ones I could, but it just goes to show even more the need for storage space.
 
Good:
 
1. The only time I ever preorder something is if I need to use the preorder as a layaway. That's the only use of a preorder for me now is the layaway. I walked into a Gamestop today who tried to convince me I better preorder Mario Maker for the Switch if I want it first day because Nintendo typically only sends enough of these types of games to fill preorder. I just smiled inwardly because I know...online store never runs out of stock. If I go to Gamestop, Best Buy, Target, Meijer and Wal Mart and they are all out of stock, I can always buy it digitally. There's no such thing as running out of copies.
 
2. Kinda small, but it is nice to not have to switch out cartridges or disks. Call me lazy, but backing out of one game and immediately starting up another can be nice versus getting my butt up off the coach, ejecting one disk/cartridge, putting it in its case, taking out another case and putting the next game in and sitting back down on the couch to resume play. Yeah, lazy as hell, but it is a plus for digital.
 
3. In the case of the Switch, they're not selling a lot of carry cases for the games. The carry case I have for the Switch itself has 5 cartridge sized pockets to store games for travel. So whenever I go somewhere or travel, I have to choose five out of my physical library to go with me and leave the rest at home. If all my games were digital, I could carry my entire library with me wherever I go.

This isn't really the case with DRM-free purchases.

Anything I bought and downloaded from GOG I can make however many copies I want and run on any computer without using a launcher program or logging in to an account.

With video games, I prefer physical. Only digital games Ive purchased are FF7 for switch, and I guess MM Legacy collection part 2 (which was digital only, and came with collection 1).

For movies, I always buy physical with a digital copy included. That way I have a physical copy to watch if theres ever a sever shut down or something.

I wish video game companies offered the same option.
"Someone once told me that Time is a predator that stalked us all our lives, but I'd rather believe that Time is a companion who goes with us on the journey, and reminds us to cherish every moment -- because they'll never come again."

Most of my games come through steam, but idea that they could arbitrarily decide to no longer host any given title, or even just go out of business irks me. With physical you at least own it until media or the reader dies.

As someone in a rural area with junk net speed I really do prefer physical. Heck getting new games is a chore anymore either way since many have day one patches over a few gigs. I often dont get to play games until hours to even days later. Its not a huge deal if I have work or am going to sleep but it sucks when I have a game I really want to jump into ASAP.

I buy a mixture. Obviously, a lot of smaller games are only available digitally, but also it's just so much more convenient. As somebody who is distracted easily and rarely finishes games, being able to go straight from "I am excited for this game I don't own" to actually playing it that same day is good for momentum. Physical games are a thing I mainly go for if it's cheaper, or if I'm feeling like a sucker for a limited edition in a series I love, otherwise I don't have a strong preference.

I'm leaning towards digital.

 

My preference is physical. There's just something about having all my games lined up on a shelf.

 

Yet, I get that I don't have the space for physical games. Physical media, really. I'm not going to clean a bookcase filled with DVDs and CDs anymore.  It's just not something I want to do.

 

I also... killed my XBOne's disc drive playing Destiny. It works - sometimes - which can make playing physical games a challenge. It's no fun when you've got 30 minutes to kill and 10 of those are spent playing the "eject and reinsert the disc and hope it works" game.

 

So, yeah. I'm leaning towards digital.

I prefer digital and given price parity would always actually obtain the physical item but I have a lot of movies and shows and games that are digital because the price is so cheap.

 

I'm not going to pay $30-$60 for a physical game when I can get the digital for $5-$10.

I'll always choose physical over digital; particularly as far as movies go. I've never rented or bought a digital film, and I don't even redeem the digital codes that come with my blu-rays and 4K discs as I want no part of making the studios think digital is any more popular than it is. I'm more than able to make my own backups, if necessary. I still buy CDs as well, although all those do get digitized into FLAC (for home listening) and 256kbps AAC (for on the go).

 

I have bought some retro digital games off GOG.com, though, as they're DRM free. The old Sierra adventure games... King's/Space/Police Quest series, Leisure Suit Larry, and a few other favorites from when I was younger. For console games, though, I'll always go physical.

Killing the physical media would be just pointlessly malicious. If the company is doing well, they're wasting money as very few (if any, I would hope.) would opt to repurchase. It would just validate the methodology and lead to not only it happening again on the same game, but on every other game, digital and physical. I didn't stop renting games cause the stores went out of business: I helped put the stores out of business by not renting games. And if the company is bankrupt, there won't be anyone to CARE if you're still playing your disc/cartridge, other than a couple of the devs would were really passionate about the game, and they want you to play.

Eh, it really depends on several factors.  By and large, I've largely gravitated to digital for several reasons.  One is I'm lazy, and not having to get up to change games is very convenient.  Further, a LOT of my game playing are on devices like the Switch and Playstation TV, which aren't exactly easy systems to swap game cards, even before you factor in the "out of the way" spots I have them in.  Digital sales have often provide significant discounts and the method has allowed a LOT of games to see release that probably wouldn't have otherwise.

 

But there's still that  "if the servers go down, you won't be able to access the games again" issue, though, thus far that hasn't been a terribly huge issue as companies are leaving access to titles for YEARS after the systems are discontinued.  And despite the prevalence of online discounts, by and large, a lot of digital games don't see terribly impressive price cuts due to age.  Sony STILL has PSP games available for download at $20-40, despite the system being discontinued years ago. 

 

I like to get physical on key titles, but I'm increasingly seeing little reason to spend the money on physical releases short of some collector editions.  Even if you buy a disc or a cart...a LOT of new games are saddled with "day one patches" and are functionally unplayable out of the package anymore.  Mortal Kombat 11 on the Switch came on a 7 GB cart...and required a 16 GB download PLUS an always on connection for full access to the game's SINGLE PLAYER functions.  If I'm going to spend all that time downloading that much...I might as well just pay for the digital download.

The biggest boon for physical games is that retailers are more apt to discount older titles to rotate inventory and selection.  Outside of the occasional super sale, it's possible to get a LOT of games for less than online prices months down the line.

 

I think what's rubbed me the most about this discussion is that the entire thing is being undermined by the actions of (mostly western) publishers.  The big sell on digital is that "it would be cheaper", even though there have been a number of recent titles for Switch that were cheaper at retail AT LAUNCH than on the eShop.  Physical version buyers are basically being "conned" due to the fact that a majority of (again, western games, mostly) require massive "updates" at release to the point you can't even play the game out of the packaging anymore.

 

Again, I'd have no issue buying physical..if it was worth it.  Increasingly, I've found it hard to justify spending on a physical game, especially western developed big budget games, compared to the convenience of digital.  By and large, convenience is what the market responds to so we'll see how things go forward.

I will go physical whenever I can.

 

Now, what is nice is stuff like PS+, where you get a bunch of freebies, and some REALLY good sales on bigger games, many of which you never see at retail, like The Order 1886 for $5, among many others.  Most are older games that I never picked up originally, and, having an external 2TB HD has been nice for all of those.  That and things like FFXV, which I played and finished on release, but was waiting for all the DLC before getting the season pass (as season passes go on sale a lot), but find it is cheaper to just wait for the Royal edition to have a good sale on it, as is has most of the DLC included...  For the most part it is stuff that I was not going to buy for a long time, and a really good deal, or is digital only, and even then, if it is a good deal.

 

For TV shows and movies, I am almost 100% physical, as streaming sites change their stuff all the time, sites go under (Target Ticket), and stuff goes out of print and can be very hard to get, even from illegal download places (a whole bunch of anime, which is why I am glad I started collecting DVDs, then BDs very early).  Plus, I first went on Netflix a year or so ago, and was very underwhelmed with the selection.  So many movies I assumed they would have, they did not, and then they would only have one of a series (LotR, for example), so I am not impressed with them.

 

The only streaming service I follow i FunimationNow, because I can see a whole bunch of anime in English either the day of, or within a few weeks of the Japanese release.  Even they lose rights to stuff and lose stuff (like with the split with Crunchyroll, though they seem to be getting some of those back recently), which is why I still buy the BDs of the shows I like (admittedly not right away, as I used to, but, since I am  not as clamoring to see them again right away, I wait for good deals).

How many game cartridges do you have for your phone or tablet?

None? Well, that’s the future of gaming isn’t it? Kids don’t care about discs and carts and ownership when all they’ve known in their lives are digital games.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

Physical for movies and shows I love. I'm fine streaming shows and movies I don't care as much about.

Games I'm fine with 100% digital. I can play all my digital xbox games offline (provided I could also play the disc version offline) and I can't recall the last time I purchased a disc that didn't have an install. I can access them on any xbox, and some on pc. No worry about losing them, scratches, changing disks etc. I don't worry about selling them, as by the time I may sell of a game it's only going to be worth a dollar or two at most. There are rumors of Microsoft offering a disc to digital service. If so, I am excited to move my last few disc based games that I've gotten as gifts over to digital.

I rarely play single player games, and it is even rarer for me to replay single player games. Once the multi-player community for a game is dead, the game holds no value for me.
I finally got rid of that big white box.
