@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

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.
