I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Welp, appearing right on time, its the steam summer sale.

 

I managed to buy two things off my wishlist (and simply remove two others. I don't even know what I was thinking.), before the store became the usual molasses uphill in december mess. If you believe the propaganda: it runs till july 5th, so there's no real hurry for anything.

 

Edit: oh right. I purchased the mad max game, and Hardpsace: Shipbreaker. Shipbreaker is installing as I type, and there's one or two things on my list which I hope end up more deeply discounted, but I won't be disappointed if they don't be and I don't buy them.

I find it ironic that nothing on my wishlist is on sale this time around.

 

Had a bit of scratch in my pocket, decided to shell out for Mordheim: City of the Damned and Viscera Cleanup Detail and all DLC there-in for $30, after $5 discount. Probably not going to jump on anything else, being honest. I gotta admire/hate Paradox for the bullcrap they pull by deep discounting core games but barely touching the mountains of DLC.

 

Battletech for $10 almost made me pull the trigger. Then I see all the DLC for it and all of it is also $10. Same with Hearts of Iron 4. $10 is a steal...and then you see the $80 of DLC.

There's so many. Well 154 pages of Story Rich games to crawl through.

 

That'll go great with my backlog of 50 or so games I want to play...

Welp. I finally sprung for space engineers. I knew some of my friends had it, and with one of the not currently on sale DLC packs, I still managed to pay less than the asking price thanks to the 6 dollars off (orders of 35 or more.) coupon from steam.

Let's see... there are only six games in my wishlist. If I purchased all of them it'd cost me... *goes to do some calculating*

 

Around 40 bucks. More likely 37 or 38 and not sure about after tax, so around 40.

 

Maybe I'll pull the trigger.

 

Ironically enough I kinda feel left out when everyone goes crazy for the steam sales, but 90% of the time, I can't get excited because most of these games I'd rather have on a console, and I'd rather do a physical copy.

 

So like... Mad Max? I'd pay five bucks for that, but I think I can get an xboxone disc for the same price, so why do steam?

 

So yeah anything that I can buy on a console instead, especially if I can get it on disc is automatically not applicable for me getting it on steam. The game has to basically be in a state where digitally is the only way I CAN get it, and it basically has to be exclusive to steam, or just that darn cheap.

 

And even then I have to be that one guy who can't get into many of the games so many others do.

 

Like so many people have so much fun with games like Goat Simulator, and Untitled Goose game, and I'll never buy those, because I see no reason to play them. If I understand correctly, they are games purely meant for you to dick around for an hour or two doing basically nothing.

 

I'm the person that'd rather play through Resident Evil 2 Remake again, trying to complete one of the challenges, or do some Destiny 2 and get some bounties done, and maybe score a rare gun.

 

Couple that with the many genres of games I just don't see any appeal in. (Racing, anything strategy related, most puzzle games... pretty any rouge like game I've ever seen.)

 

Yeah I'm sure there are some steam games hidden in there that I'd probably love, but I wouldn't begin to know how to try and find any.

Hey man, you do you. The great thing about gaming right now is: you've got this enormous variety of options available to you. Three different consoles all with different underlying design strategies, and PC which can do just about all of it. You can pick and choose what you want to play and what to play on.

 

Me personally, I think you should spend a couple of bucks on some games you WOULDN'T normally play, because you might just find something worth while to change your mind about genres. Or indulge in the free to play scene. Nothing wrong with stepping outside your normal scene for a while.

Well unless the sales last till the 17th, it's a moot point anyway. I have like maybe 30 bucks to last me till next pay day. Which is the 17th... Gotta love trying to claw your way back up after losing hours due to "You know what"

I've heard till the ninth, but yeah. I'm not partaking in the sales this year. Not unless I find 100 bucks on the ground or something.
