At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

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.
