Turns out the President set the whole thing up as a publicity stunt. Very rude.

@  Paladin : (13 August 2020 - 08:02 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2020 - 06:18 PM)

The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:08 PM)

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.

I wish I could just sit by a pond and watch ducks for a while.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

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)

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I'm pretty stoked about the improvements and updates to Fallout 76. I wanted to love that game with all my heart, and I stuck with it till about the end of February but I just didn't have time to play it anymore after my new job started.

 

Then it sort of fell off the map for me - but seeing the human PCs moving and and the option for battle royal play I'm looking forward to jumping back in.

 

I've got it on PS4 and I've really wanted to try it on PC but not pay full price for it AGAIN so I'm also looking forward to the 7 day trial that starts tomorrow. 

 

I also have the referral link to the Doom Slayer Club if anyone is interested in joining. It's free.

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.

I found the first 40 or so minutes of the Xbox presentation had more games I actually give a shit about than the entirety of every previous Xbox e3 combined.

There was VARIETY there, it wasn't just one grim shooty game after another with some sports tossed in. No forced Kinect nonsense either. Im still not buying an Xbox but I did enjoy 75% of the presentation.

I didn't really understand the deal with their Game Pass thing. I'm guessing its some preexisting thing they're hyping up and thus didn't need to explain.

Devolver Digital gave another very fun insanity-fest. Carion looks really interesting.

Gamepass is a game subscription service they've offered for a few years now. You get a selection of games you can play for no additional fee for $10 a month.

They are now offering the game pass ultimate, which includes Xbox live gold, Xbox game pass and Xbox game pass PC for $14.99 a month.

They've also rolled out a PC only version of game pass for $4.99 a month.

I've heard people speculate that the battle royal mode on Fallout 76 was the intended form of the game from the beginning. While I'm not much of one for conspiracy theories, it would explain why the game as released is a horrible broken, half-assed mess. Something they cobbled together to appease fans when they realized that just straight up releasing a Fallout battle royal would encite a lynch mob gunning for Todd Howard.

Now the lynch mob has moved on to Fortnite and won't come back.

Tomorrow at 9 PST.

Also this E3 has felt really lackluster. Eberything has been things we've seen before or felt like things we've seen before.

I've come away from each conference with a game or two, at most, that I've even been interested in. The indie conferences have honestly been my favorites so far.

Man so many games getting physical releases!

 

Probably going to pick up Freedom Planet for the Switch.

 

Sadly the two games I was kinda hoping for. "Mummy Demastered and Mighty Gunvolt Burst" aren't coming yet.

 

Also seems they'll be doing a bunch of old Star Wars games.

 

Also Also, they announced they have the exclusive rights to sell Shenmue 3 collector's edition. So if you love the franchise and want the collector's edition, it's through them only.

*$*@! I was really looking forward to the Nintendo Direct since I'm working from home today. Ended up having to get on a call for work all through it, so didn't get to really watch it. And then the feed cut out on me, and came back just in time to see I'd missed most of the Zelda sequel segment!  :( 

 

Got excited about a lot of what I did see though. Did I see right that Seiken Densetsu 3 is finally getting an English release later today!? Hell yes!
