It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

I just dislike how they had to majorly retcon for there to be any natives at all on Mirrodin, and how hard creative took a dump on poor Slobad and Glissa. The New Phyrexia/Mirrodin Pure thing being a marketing lie is obnoxious but nothing that unexpected or outrageous.

Just got back from the prerelease. Only won about 5 out of 11 games but for me that's not too bad. Running a tri color deck didn't help as it usually was not giving me the one type of mana for the cards in my hand. And the one card I wanted to play I only got the chance to cast once and was countered hard. But come on who doesn't want to see this happy smiling.....

I'll be first to admit I'm not the greatest MtG player and it's always been more about the fiction behind the cards rather than the game itself that kept me playing. So when todays spoiler previews for commander came I was beyond happy to see a Weatherlight crew member make a comeback with new artwork.

Now that vehicles are a thing though can I get a new version of the Weatherlight please :love

So the Aether Revolt Prerelease is this weekend. My pulls were a bit lackluster this time. Pulled the Green and White Expertise cards, along with a Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, and Baral, Chief of Compliance out of my AER packs and Marionette Master and Multiform Wonder from the two Kaladesh packs. Foil Promo was Disallow.

 

I went to the afternoon tournament since I had all weekend off but was a pretty small turnout. Only about 17 or so, so I was the odd guy out round one unfortunately. But I did about my norm. Since I got mostly Black and Blue that's what I ran and had some luck with some stall and Artifact damage. Getting a couple Consulate Turrets out saved my butt in round 3

Round One: Odd man out

Round Two :1-2

Round Three: 2-0

Round Four: 0-2.

 

No extra prizes for me but at least I got some wins in..

So amid all the video game Hype Magic announced a good slate of whats to come in the next year leading into the 25th Anniversary
 
So Amonkhet's second set Hour of Devastation is coming in Mid July with the prerelease tourneys the weekend of July 8th Nicol Bolas confirmed as a  Planeswalker if we didn't already think it wasn't going to happen. But he's one of the two featured Planeswalker in the PW Decks

 

In release Order

 

Commander 2017 -  August 2017

 

Ixalan - September 2017

 

Merfolk vs. Goblins Duel Deck set - November 2017

 

Iconic Masters set- November 2017

 

Explorers of Ixalan -November 2017

 

From the Vault: Transform - November 2017

 

UNSTABLE - December 2017

 

Rivals of Ixalan - January 2018

 

Masters 25 - March 2018

 

Dominaria - April 2018

 

Magic 2019 Core Set - July 2018

 

So we seem to be mixing up the sets again over the two block set they have done lately. Ixalan will have two large sets and one small set like the old three block rotation. They have said we won't necessarily stay on a Plane for any certain amount of sets anymore and will follow however the story they want to tell pulls. This also allows them to brake up the Gatewatch a bit more and possibly feature other New and returning Planeswalkers. The amount of stuff between November and January is crazy. Crazy enough for another UN Joke set. :D Plus the return to Dominaria is interesting. Not sure I've been that into it since the Invasion cycle but of course it's a good nod to for the 25th anniversary.

Both Favorites of mine too. It's really when WotC started a heavy push into the lore it seems. I still have the Tempest short story anthology book. And Urza is my Jedi's name on SW:TOR, as well as a few Pokemon Trainers over the years.I've really been on a big Magic kick the last couple years. Especially with Amonkhet and the Egyptian like theme it has going.I think I've bought more Amonkhet than any set in the last decade.

Heck you realize we are getting a new set practically every two months just with the actual expansions. Usually we've gotten a break between Sept/Oct and January But I think they are trying to push out Ixalan so they can set up Dominaria as the 25th anniversary block. It might be a bit more spaced out between Rivals of Ixalan and Dominaria but it's crazy to me how rapid fire things are in the coming year.

    Hello, world

So, it's been announced that Cryptic Studios (Champions Online, Star Trek Online, Neverwinter MMO) is working on an MMO based on M:tG.

 

I await further news with baited breath.  There's real potential there, but it could turn sour really quickly.  It really depends on how well they incorporate the feel and trappings of the M:tG universe.  If it's just another generic fantasy MMO that name drops iconic M:tG elements, than no deal. 

 

Ideally, I'd very much like if it would ape the original Guild Wars a bit, factoring in its deep skill/spell gathering system and "deckbuilding" toolkit.  Addictive and meaningful collecting mechanics I feel are key to achieving some of M:tG's appeal and identity.  Don't be so faithful that it just becomes M:tGO with avatars and a worldmap, though.

 

It would be very cool though if it were expansive enough to let you explore the card game's iconic settings, especially the more exotic ones like Ravnica, Zendikar, or even Kamigawa. 

 

So, tentatively excited.
