No, Onyx is a snake.

Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

Everyone has a fetish, I guess.

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

Just wondering, I have only been doing a bit of recon. Playing as a bandit, its just as awesome as the first one, though the ragdoll effect when you kill things is annoying.

I have absolutely zero interest in this game. Anything with the draw point of "It's hugging super hard" just seems so lacking in fun.

It's "skillful hard", though, not "cheap hard".

The only reason I'm not playing this is that I've not really gotten around to playing Demons Souls yet. But barely 20 minutes in, and I could tell that I was going to love the game, and I'm no "hardcore" gamer, by any means. It's all about tactics, and learning from your mistakes, and picking yourself up and doing better the next time. If you die, you're always very aware that it's your fault, for rushing in unprepared or being too aggressive, or whatever. It's never about the game pulling cheap-ass crap on you and being unfair.

Loved Demon Souls and I love Dark Souls. I haven't fully played it since: school, work and few other games to play first don't allow any more free time to spare to it. But it will definitely be played to death by me.

Game is good. Like Demon Souls the design is clever, the levels are gorgeous, and of course die and learn. I had to remember how to play it but starting to get my groove again.

Gonna sink a lot of time in it I think. The pacing so far has been really good, the combat is tense and very gratifying and now you can jump icon-hotrod.gif

Archon, there are times in Demon Souls that the game is just cheap, but you can fight fire with fire. For me though, that was part of the fun, figuring out when to just be a cheating jerk to beat something, because, the developers (accidentally or intentionally) let you get away with it. And honestly for all the times I got pounded into the ground by a couple "peons" I didn't feel bad at all about it.

Does anyone see City-Swimmer? Is he gliding beneath the silver water? Is he creeping 'round a corner, hugging a wall, silent as a shadow in the dark?

Any luck Deathblade? I finished off the Gaping last night, on to Blightown I guess... We'll see how it plays versus swamp hell from Demon souls. I rolled the Capra pretty easily, but I think I'm over equipped for my soul level. I've been taking the game nice and slow.

I beat the capra demon several days ago, but I am stuck on the gaping dragon. Well, not really stuck...I am trying to beat it with soiltare and lautrec, but it takes too long. They end up getting killed, I could beat it by myself, but I am trying to forward their side stories. I am looking to go to dark root forest to power up my bandit now. Then going back to gaping demon. I got cursed once by the basililisk, man that sucked! So did the method for removing it.

Darkroot is really good for grinding souls, even if you can't kill em you can make em run off the cliff. I got to the first bonfire in Blight town before I turned around. Need to power up a bow to be able to clear out toxin throwers. Ick those suck. The curse is crummy but it just made me feel like I was playing Demon souls again, half hp and all icon-hotrod.gif

Dusted Blighttown and The great grey wolf sif. What a great boss. The best in the series so far for me. Partially the way it moves really remind me of my cat but awesome. On to Sen's fortress. Felt good to ring the second bell.

Liberal use of the White Soapstone thingamy is helpful for that. Just make sure you get the Gargoyle Tail Halberd. It's quite useful.

yikes man! at least if you start over, it will probably take you less time.
