Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

I think the show's gotten better episode by episode. They've passed on a few more cliches for more unusal story hooks. Acting is getting better.


Speculation on John Barrowman:
HIGHLIGHT to view:
Before the show, i was thinking he'd be Bruce Wayne...then after the first episode I was thinking Ras Al Ghul (or equivilent) from Batman Begins...the master of the isalnd who trained Ollie. Now I'm thinking he might be Slade Wilson.

Another strong episode. The show's really starting to hit it's stride. Glad it's not afraid to be "comic book-y" either. Like when he swings off the roof, and how he ninja vanishes all the time. I'm really digging it.

Diggs will pose as the Arrow while he's locked up thus clearing him

I hope I'm wrong, because it's a rather cheesy trope.

The way this show has been going in terms of skewering secret ID tropes, I figure we're more likely to see Detective Drake ending up co-opted somehow and helping keep the secret. The show seems to like setting up stuff that normally would be series-long running gags and then ending them fast.

Split the difference, he was hilariously good. I mean, the body armor & gear looked fairly good, but the mask itself could have been less defined. I could have done without the brow ridges myself. And instead of that garrish yellow, I wish they went with bronze metal.


Also, so Ollie intentionally got caught on camera, so he could have his partner throw off suspicion. Except, he didn't actually have a partner yet & half the previous episode made it seem like he wouldn't be getting one.

Doesn't exactly sound like a very good master plan, does it?

Ollie's never been much of a 'master planner' type, he's always been or seems like a "fly by the seat of his pants' type

But the point is, he wasn't even wearing the pants yet. Plus, I can't be certain, but given Green Arrow's depiction on Young Justice & Justice League Unlimited, I think we've gone a bit astray of comparing TV Ollie, to comic one.

Though to be fair, he did admit that there were some unforseen elements (he had wanted just an appearance, he hadn't accounted for an actual crime needing to be stopped). Less Batman Gambit than Xanatos Speed Chess.

And note that flashback-Deathstroke had two eyes. I'm guessing that after he takes the inevitable arrow to the face, the present-day conspirators will reveal their hired assassin (unmasked for a face-to-face meeting), and his eyepatch. . .

Im still really enjoying this show. It does seem to be getting a bit better with each episode. Yes, his partner dressing up as Arrow wasnt really much of a surprise. I like how all of the flash backs kind of tie into what is going on with the show.

Remeber, for those of you who liked Smallville, the first few season were hard to watch.


I tried later seasons (when we get Aqualad and Cyborg and Ollie) and... it was still as hard to watch as before.

I have the same problem there as with the Merlin series - 4 seasons in, and Arthur still doesn't realize the blatantly obvious, that Merlin is a wizard. Because "hey, that's what it was like in the original myth" - nevermind that the series went soooo far off the original myth (Nimue as an evil witch not even related to Excalibur, Lancelot dies even before Arthur becomes kings, Guinevere as an... african-albionian, I guess?)... same way, I was frustrated at Smallville trying to stay true to the "status quo" and throw in anything from clones to memory wipes to ensure Lex never remembers/realizes that Clark is Superman/boy.

I'd watch Arrow, but I just know I'll end up disappointed. I'm gonna check back in a year and read the episode synopsises, and will see whether this is worth watching.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.
