so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

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.

@  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.

@  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)

@  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

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.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

@  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

Bungie has kind of broken their silence on the big project that has been taking up their time since Halo.



Project Destiny looks to be a first person action game with a space theme. From the bits, it looks like you'll be able to customize the hell out of your guy, appearance and abilities wise, but beyond that, there's not a whole lot to glean, outside of art style.

The big thing is that it's an always-online, partially instanced game, like Guild Wars. Every hangs out in a central town area where you can get people to group up for missions or pvp or what have you. They specifically used MMO terminology like "dungeons" and "raids" (Luckily, it sounds like currently a "raid" is six people icon-fire.gif)

The other big thing is they're talking about supporting this franchise for the next TEN years. The original Activision leak mentioned a new game every other year, and an expansion in the inbetween years. However, this has possible changed since then.

Never got into Halo, but color me interested on this. Especially if it comes out on next-gen platforms too and not just PS3/360.

They're staying away from the "MMO" word I think because of this exact thing.

But imagine if you had a character in Call of Duty whose weapons and appearance you were able to customize. Then when a new CoD game came out, that character could transfer over. Almost like a first person, online Mass Effect. At least, that's how I imagine it.
Yep.

Destiny is so Microsoft-exclusive that they're also releasing it on Playstation.

They aren't committing to a PC release, at the moment.

I did see a comment on Rock, Paper, Shotgun suggesting that it may be a conflict with Titan, a Blizzard project being published by Activision at about the same time which is also a sci-fi MMO FPS thing and is aimed at the PC platform.

I believe I saw somewhere that they outright denied it being an MMO. I don't think we are going to get as much MMO influence in this as some people are thinking.

I think it's going to be more of a persistent FPS world. Imagine Halo single player and multiplayer merged with you playing as a persistent evolving character. You could pick Covenant or Humans. Based on how well each group performs across the whole spectrum dictates how monthly single and multiplayer content is released. Covenant kick ass in a space campaign that encompasses multiplayer ship on ship and boarding action. Singleplayer/co-op missions vs AI to sabotage stuff that will in turn effect equipment available in multiplayer. Since Covenant won overall that means next months missions both campaign and multi will focus on defending Earth and driving the covenant back for the Humans, and invading the entrenched and resource heavy capital planet for the Covenant.

After 2 years when they are ready to release a new game drastic things could happen as a result of continuous wins or losses. Earth could be destroyed, new weapons could be developed based on cash invested by players for successful missions and wins. etc.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

I'm not anti-consoles. I'd just rather play this sort of game on a PC for a variety of reasons. If it's not coming out for my preferred platform, I have plenty of other games I can play instead.

Also, Bungie's stated reason for excluding PC is hugging bulljive:

QUOTE(Jason Jones, Bungie co-founder @ Yesterday)
?We did a bunch of ambitious things on Halo deliberately to reach out to people. We limited players to two weapons, we gave them recharging health, we automatically saved and restored the game ? almost heretical things to first-person shooters at the time. We made the game run without a mouse and keyboard. And now nobody plays shooters the way they used to play them before Halo ?cause nobody wants to.?


That seems like pretty much a slap in the face to the millions of people who still play FPS titles on PC. It has, however, led to some interesting research into PC vs. console sales numbers.

I don't really see any insult mouse and keyboard.

Before Halo the PC was the dominant platform for FPS. This is true and not insulting.

After Halo (though it's debatable how much was influenced by Halo and how much by COD) consoles have become the dominant home for FPS games. This is true and not insulting.

Recharging health and 2 or 3 weapon limit. While it's again debatable if this is what people want, the fact that it's standard in pretty much every shooter that isn't purposely trying to be old school or nostalgic implies that it probably is. Again, not insulting.

Given their track record, and whether you like it or no, hasn't Bungie earned the right to be somewhat arrogant? I mean, they do tend to deliver the goods, were i in their shoes, I can't say I wouldn't be overly cocky either.
