Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*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.

@  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.

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."

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

I just saw this on CBR and wasn't sure to include it in the General Spider-Man discussion thread or start a new topic of it's own. It's just a teaser cover on Previews, but still...interesting.

One creatively bankrupt idea after another.

I love how erasing the marriage and making Peter a complete loser was supposed to "revitalize" the franchise and here, a year or so later, they're having to resort to this.

Let me guess, another comic where Peter decides to stop being Spider-Man. Only this time, it'll last a while, so we can have the comic entirely focus on Peter's manwhore sex life over the following year, without any pesky things like villains and action getting in the way.

Wow I'm surprised at the reaction at this. The last time Marvel did this it turned out to be Kaare Andrews's excellent Spider-Man: Reign. There is nothing except that image, and Marvel refuses to comment on it at this time icon-hotrod.gif

Good.

Ideally, the character should be killed and the franchise left to rest for a few years before coming back, much like Star Trek.

Of course this will never happen.

I'm so sick of this endless cycle of rehashed and reused "changes" to the status quo that end up changing nothing. Wash Rinse and Repeat.

Maybe I should just get out of comics altogether.

Didn't they just do a painfully contrived "fake-out" death where Kaine swapped clothes with Peter between issues then got killed so Kraven the Hunter could be magically brought back to life?

And now they're killing him for "real"?

Ugh. I'm sticking with my "Gauntlet" trades and then calling quits on Spidey.

to be honest if this was the 60's or 70's they'd run this comic and it would be a fun little issue without any hype. As it is now we see a cover and go mad at it because we think it might be something cataclysmic.

It's a cover, lets see where it goes before we do owt else

Man, rehashing the Death thing again?

Bring his Parents back again first or something.


Oh wait no. That won't work. I keep forgetting the point of Modern Spider-Man books is to repeatedly kick Peter Parker in the balls as hard as possible, and ensure you take away everything good and stable in his life because while the writers/editors were jealous of a Make Believe Nerd having a better life then they do.

The Gwen Clone will come back, she and Peter will hook up things will go great, he'll hang up the tights, and then BOOM! Right back to the "Gwen Stacy is a Slutty Whore" aspect when Peter walks in on her and Harry. Oh, and Aunt May will die for the billionth time somewhere in here too.

Thus leading to "I Am The Spider" part 2.

Why? Because Marvel hates Spider-Man. It really is that simple.
