*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 12:22 PM)

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

The devil is a part-timer!

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

Is anyone Beta Testing this yet?

I am, but not legitimately. Someone who shops at my store gave us his beta login and we share it, but I am the one who plays it the most.

I opted in a few weeks ago but haven't gotten anything back yet.

How is it? Less tedious than CoH?

Overall its... better than CoH. But its still CoH 2 any way you look at it.

You can throw cars though, so that's a nice touch.

I'd love to hug around with their costume creator, but I'm not motivated enough to playtest the actual game, so I didn't bother trying to get into the beta.

You can make ANYTHING.

Back in the 90s me and a friend had a 'Mutant Armadillo' named Tank. We made a version of Tank in CoH that was basically a grey stocky guy.

This is what we made in CO.


And I got news for you, there are no Armadillo parts in the costume creator. And the best part? His 'stance' is that he runs on all fours and his travel power is burrowing.

Kal, I've been in on it for a few months. I used to hate it because it ran like garbage and a lot of the costume pieces were out of whack. I recently upped the graphics load on it and for some reason it runs a million times better. My lvl 33 guy got wiped during the purge, but I am trying out a ton of new powers. Let me know your name and server and I'll hit you up.

Also, we shouldn't be violating the NDA, but I really hate playing alone. It defeats the MMO's purpose.

I'm making a new guy when the servers go up, so I'll be starting at square one.

EDIT:

PS- I notice you have cel-shading off. Seeing the game with Cel-shading has made me never want to turn it off.

I've been beta testing for about a month now, having a lot of fun with it.

Mentioning we are in beta doesn't violate the NDA, as Cryptic's said we can mention it, but I think those screenshots may be pushing it.

Oh, that's fine then. I wasn't going to be a tattle about it. I was just concerned we'd get our beta powers taken, haha.

We need to all swap names.

Go to Champions-online.com, there's a graphic link there to apply for the beta. They're not constantly inviting, though, they seem to invite a ton of people in all at once, and applying is no guarantee that you'll get in.

I'm waiting for this. I got a large group of my friends and coworkers into it. We'll have our own super group for sure. I'll be on the 360 as will almost all my other friends.

Maybe not a full one, but at walmart I see small ones that connect to the controllers. Looks like the kinda keyboards you see on phones nowady.

They worked it so you can play with just the controller.

I believe the 360 is their lead system, so it should play great.
