@  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.

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

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

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.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 08:35 PM)

But that's not you doing something, that's something being done to you.

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Unless a meteor crashes down on your bed while you're in it.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 07:08 PM)

I've been trying for the last few hours to find an argument to counter this... and I can't do it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 03:32 PM)

The most dangerous thing you can do is get out of bed in the morning. Everything else that happens is a consequence of that one terrible, terrible decision.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Driving, by itself, is dangerous. Anything done to compromise the concentration of the pilot just makes things worse.

@  Benbot : (25 November 2019 - 12:46 PM)

Actually, I think you could make a reasonable argument for saying driving with glasses is dangerous. That is, more dangerous than driving with contacts or perfect vision. You have poor peripheral vision with glasses.

So E3 has come and all the big press conferences are done. So now we have the annual thread where we get to vote on which company impressed us the most! Although you can easily say that we the gamers are the winners of E3, as we have all this gaming goodness coming to us, but this thread isn't about that. We are just asking who had the best showing this year. So cast your vote! Who won E3 2019!

Bethesda and Square had...adequate presentations.  Bethesda lost out on focusing too much on existing stuff and on background stuff.  The Doom presentation was pretty solid.  Square was better in light of the quantity and quality of content showed.  Both were pretty run of the mill and wouldn't have been anything special short of how BAD everyone else's was.

 

EA and Ubisoft were pitiful, with most of their time focused on existing franchises or "more stuff to buy in games you already bought".

 

XBOX did little with their new console, and while they made some decent announcements and reveals...very little was exclusive.

 

Most game announcements from the "big players" were for games that come out next year.

 

 

Nintendo?  Games and more games, and more importantly, games you'll be playing THIS YEAR.  Unlike the other guys, who focused on the usual big franchises and genres, Nintendo rolled out a wider range of games with everything from horror to platforming (2D AND 3D), RPGs of all flavors, action and adventure.  And continued support for major titles like Smash.  Probably the biggest omission from Nintendo's presentations have been core franchises from the big players like EA.

Nintendo handily won this E3 by doing the one thing everyone wants to see: games, games that we'll actually play reasonably soon, and a focus on ensuring their platform holders have a variety of content to play this year.

And they revealed a number of new titles that are intriguing or from partners who didn't reveal at their own conferences.

 

So yeah, Nintendo pretty much won E3.

For me, Nintendo won easily in all respects but one. Even though Sony skipped the show entirely, their Days of Play sale finally got me to go ahead and buy a PS4, along with a bunch of games for cheap. So as of next weekend, I'll... have a whole new pile of games on my backlog.  :doh

 

So far, I've picked up God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, FF15, Arkham Knight, and Uncharted 1-4. I'll get KH3 eventually, but probably going to wait until it's on sale. Anyone have any other recommendations? I love action-adventure games and RPGs. Generally can't stand shooters.

Nier Automata if you not already own it

 

For me it was Nintendo on top followed by surprisingly Bethesda

 

Nintendo dropped tons of games in our lap you can play right now and showed off whats to come and oh boy is it a dozy

I also voted for Nintendo.  Once again, it was a no contest in their favor, especially with amazing announcements like Banjo-Kazooie coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and even new games like New Super Lucky's Tale and Chronicles of Mana (which would bring Seiken Densetsu 3 to American shores for the first time).

Yeah, that's a good starting point and should keep you busy for a while. Maybe eventually pick up Spiderman.

Is new Super Lucky's Tale a new game or is it just a port of the Xbox One game from last year?

I have to go with Nintendo. They really want me to buy a Switch this year. Smash getting the Dragon Quest Heroes from 3,4,8, and 11 makes me ecstatic! Link's Awakening, It is a must buy for me. I loved that game on the Gameboy! I am torn on whether or not I will be buying DQ11 on the Switch or not. I like it on the PS4, but I might wait for a sale on it before picking up this version.

Nier Automata if you not already own it

 

I've seen the name before, but had never really looked into it at all. So am I understanding right that it's the second Nier game and part of the Drakengard series, but not really connected to any of the other games? I'm pretty sure I have at least the first two Drakengard games, but have never gotten around to them and didn't even realize there was a previous Nier game.

 

 

Man, with that selection you could never buy a game again and still die happy. I love the Uncharteds and God Of War is probably in my Top Five Games In All Earth History.


Yeah, that's a good starting point and should keep you busy for a while. Maybe eventually pick up Spiderman.

 

 

Yeah, I'm sure I'll be content for quite a while. I've been itching to get the system for years now. Glad I could finally pull the trigger.  :)

 

Although, I'll take exception to the part about dying happy without ever buying another game. My life would be incomplete without Zelda. BotW is the entire reason I didn't buy a PS4 two years ago. Had the money saved up, but simply had to get the Switch for no reason other than that. And I don't regret that decision for a second!  :love

 

I am torn on whether or not I will be buying DQ11 on the Switch or not. I like it on the PS4, but I might wait for a sale on it before picking up this version.

 

This would have been my dilemma too if it weren't for the fact that I'm only now getting the PS4. At this point, I'm better off just waiting and getting the Switch version.

Yeah, I think we all know Nintendo won pretty handily.  I guess it depends on what kind of games you're into, but...everything they showed was a winner.  I don't think there was a bad game in the bunch.

 

Xbox was probably in second place for just the sheer VOLUME of what they showed.  There's probably something for everyone somewhere in there.  And Xbox's conferences are alwasy really showy, professional affairs.

 

Taking home the bronze is probably Square Enix.  They didn't show a LOT, but they took deep dives into what they did show.  And there were a few fun surprises.  

 

Everyone else was pretty dire.

 

 

For me, Nintendo won easily in all respects but one. Even though Sony skipped the show entirely, their Days of Play sale finally got me to go ahead and buy a PS4, along with a bunch of games for cheap. So as of next weekend, I'll... have a whole new pile of games on my backlog.  :doh

 

So far, I've picked up God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, FF15, Arkham Knight, and Uncharted 1-4. I'll get KH3 eventually, but probably going to wait until it's on sale. Anyone have any other recommendations? I love action-adventure games and RPGs. Generally can't stand shooters.

Witcher 3 seems like an obvious omission.  Try and get the "Complete" version for the most content.

 

Red Dead Redemption 2 is also a pretty easy recommendation.

 

Banner Saga Trilogy, you get 3 highly-rated indie strategy games.  

 

Inside and Limbo Double Pack, you get 2 of the most lauded indie games ever in one package.

 

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth, if you have any nostalgia for Digimon at all.  It does have a sequel, but it'd probably be best to stick with the first game, since you can transfer over your digimon if you want more later.

 

Monster Hunter World, probably the most popular Monster Hunter game right now.

 

Tales of Berseria, although there is also Tales of Vesperia.  Vesperia is also on Switch and Berseria isn't, so...I don't know if that effects your choice there at all.  Vesperia is usually ranked a little higher than Berseria, but both are decent RPGs.

 

Life is Strange, probably the most beloved indie "cinematic" type game on the PS4.  Probably worth checking out if you like a good story...even if it might be a little indie-movie-ish.

 

Gravity Rush 2, a interesting gravity-twisting platformer.  I'd recommend the first game, but...that's probably getting hard to find (and expensive) right now.

 

Tearaway Unfolded, a charming and creative platformer.

 

.Hack//GU Last Recode, you get 3 and a half huge RPGs.  It's a pretty good bang for your buck, if you like the style of game.

 

Divinity Original Sin 2, this one kind of flew under my radar, but it seems like everyone who plays it likes it.  More of a PC RPG.

 

Megaman/Megaman X Legacy Collections, this is just a no-brainer if you like the Megaman games.

 

Stick it to the Man-An oddball platformer/adventure game.  Kind of feels like an older Nickelodeon cartoon or Sam and Max.  It has a spiritual sequel in Flipping Death.

 

Super Robot Wars V...look there are a LOT of SRW games.  This is the one *I* imported.  It's apparently a pretty good game to ease you into the franchise.  It'll probably be pretty expensive, though.

 

Trails of Cold Steel 1-2, the third one is coming soon.  Another highly-rated JRPG.

 

Sega Genesis Classics, there are a TON of classic Genesis games in one package.  Although, with the Genesis Mini coming, I'm not sure which would be a better buy.  Both have slightly different lineups.

 

Gundam Versus, probably the best Gundam get you can get, outside of maybe importing Gundam Breaker 3 (stay away from New Gundam Breaker).

 

Spyro Reignited Trilogy, all the classic Spyro games reimagined in a great way...but even if you get the physical version, you'll still have to download 2/3rds of the game.

 

World of Final Fantasy, it's a cute nostalgia trip.  Might be worth checking out if you're a fan of the franchise.  Not a bad game, but there are better Final Fantasys on the system, too.

 

Trine Ultimate Collection, you get all 4 Trine games in one package.  Pretty good platformers.

 

Dragon Ball FighterZ, arguably the best Dragon Ball Z game we've gotten.  It's a fighting game, though.  

 

Also, one to watch out for that I'm keeping my eye on is Ghost of Tsushima.  It just looks gorgeous.  Some great set-pieces from what we've seen of the game, too.  No idea when it comes out or if it'll actually be any good, though.

Nice list. Thanks for all the suggestions.  :)

 

I already have Witcher III on PC, which is why it was omitted here. I actually just bought it recently through a Humble Store sale. If I hadn't, it would have been on my shortlist too. Same goes for Skyrim.

 

I have all the Mega Man collections already on Switch. I'm still tempted to get them for PS4 too, simply due to my preference for physical versions of things I really care about. The fact that only half the Switch games were actually on the physical cartridges still irritates me to no end, and is the reason I bought those digitally. Now that I have a PS4, I may revisit that decision.

 

Spyro is on my radar, but I haven't really looked at it much yet. I've always been interested in the games, but the PS1 graphics made me nauseous when I tried to play them before. I expect I'll get the new release at some point, but I haven't looked into whether I'd go with the PS4 or Switch version yet.

 

For all the rest, I have no more than a passing awareness of their existence, if that. I'll have to spend some time later looking into them.

I'm pretty sure I have at least the first two Drakengard games, but have never gotten around to them and didn't even realize there was a previous Nier game.

 

 

It's set seven or eight thousand years after Nier, which is in turn centuries after or in another time line from the Drakengard series.  The references to earlier works are pretty minor and fairly self-contained.  Nier had excellent writing but only competent gameplay, so if you really want the story, you're better off looking up a let's play.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.
