Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

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*

So E3 started but its already off to a bad start with Sony being a no show and I have flat given up on Microsoft

I don't think Id buy an XB1 for even 99 bucks preloaded with Halo Infinite at this point 

EA already did there thing and the Star Wars game looks... BORING AS HELL...

 

So lets hope there some bright spots in the coming days

Given who started this thread, I wasn't sure if the thread title was intentional or not. :p

 

Frankly, I'm waiting on Nintendo.  The past 5 years have really soured me on mainstream AAA gaming, with the egregious load times, money pinching, and misleading functionality (the PS4 is certainly NOT plug and play).  But Nintendo's streamlined experience has really helped me get back into semi-regular game playing, even in spite of the peculiarities on Nintendo's end and sometimes questionable releases.

I thought the Star Wars game looked just fine.

 

Of course it'd be a thousand times better if it was Force Unleashed 3, but it looks like a decent 3rd person platformer so far.

Well then I guess you don't want Sega Ages, The Genesis collection, the Castlevania collection... etc. etc.

 

Those collections are why the VC doesn't exist anymore.

Which is why it looks like a decent game to me.

 

However it's not Starkiller, and the reigned in force powers keep it from being amazing.

 

Pretty much, the force powers in both Unleashed games are what I wish the force WAS like. It looked awesome, it played awesome. (Okay to be fair both games had flaws, but I loved em anyway) And I really liked Starkiller.

 

This new game though, is probably the best I could hope for now a days.

Wait why would Sega Ages or the collections not exists? you can have both One would be the packaged deal with extras and one would be the vanilla version or just skip those few collections and pump out whats not covered in them in a true Virtual console put a 7.99-9.99 price tag on NES,SNES, N64 games and the Switch would just print money

It's my experience that those in high corporate/upper management have no clue how it actually works, yet feel they have it all figured out.

 

If I had to guess, their reasoning is: "If all these games were on the virtual console, no one would have any need of buying these expensive collection systems we're bringing out! Therefore we must make sure the collection is the only way to get said games! Then people will HAVE to buy! We're so smart!"

Actually, it's probably just a means to monetize the titles they already own, but aren't otherwise selling. They get to justify both the collection AND a higher price per title, as well as make at least a little coin of IP's that wouldn't move on their own.

 

Edit: The thing I actually came in here to say: I lost interest in the spectacle of e3 years ago. It's a neat premise, but it's lackluster these days. Big friggen shows over rehashed crap or absolutely nothing isn't worth the attention. I am interested in the bethesda showcase at 5.30, but I'm not even going to watch it, I'm going to read the abbreviated tomorrow.

Basicly this.. These companies go "Why put this on a VC When we can sell these ourselves."

I mean really, is buying a Sega Ages game any real different then a sega vc game?

That... was a show? I guess?

 

Sat through the whole thing just to find out that Halo is the only game I'm remotely interested in and it won't be out until next year and only on a new console.

 

Kind of liked the Lego Forza gameplay, but racing games aren't my thing, so, eh.

Ya, I can't say there was anything grabbing again this year. I want to see the Halo story continue but I still haven't played 5 yet. And nice announcing a new console with lots of hype and not much else to show. I mean slated for Holiday 2020 and no floor model to show off. Does it have a disc drive? Are any other games besides Halo coming? And does anyone think it's going to still be named Project Scarlett at launch?

There wasn't a lot there for me. Star Wars is cool and my wife loved the Force Unleashed games so we'll likely be getting that. A lot of the smaller indie type games looked interesting/fun/pretty. I'll likely be up for the full Lego Star Wars saga.

Don't care about Halo and there's not enough about Elden Ring to care or not yet.

I'm considering whether the Ultimate game pass would be worth it at today's $1 price. Leaning towards probably for some folks but likely not for me given how rarely I get to play nowadays.
