If you think that's weird, Amazon Japan sponsors a show about cannibal mutants (Kamen Rider Amazons) called Amazonz.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 September 2018 - 10:10 PM)

I like how in the Percy Jackson universe, Amazon is literally run by the Amazons.

Government is simply the Laws and Customs of the War of All against All.

@  Betty Nor : (25 September 2018 - 06:46 PM)

Slavery, maybe. At least until, by law, Corporations are considered Borg, at which point, the term will be reclassified as assimilation.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 September 2018 - 06:19 PM)

And, under american law; corporations are people. So isn't that technically canabalism?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2018 - 06:16 PM)

Put two corporations in a room and in less than an hour one of them will be trying to buy out the other.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 September 2018 - 06:34 AM)

That's kind of the problem isn't it, amazon doesn't really HAVE any competitors. Sure, there are other companies offering similar services but nothing even close to scope or scale. How do you compare against something when you yourself are the only one doing it?

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:41 AM)

Oh wait, I forgot, Amazon is a major player, so they should be setting high standards competitors should be looking up to, not comparing themselves to smaller competitors for reference.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:39 AM)

Also, if you add the maximum possible amount of bonuses, and employee stock at its peak, we earn more we would earn under a collective bargaining agreement with the union including vacation and Christmas bonuses (but not including additional vacation days, late shift bonuses, weekend bonuses and whatnot)!

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:37 AM)

But... But... we earn more than people in random other jobs that have nothing to do with us at all which Amazon randomly picked so they'd be paying better by comparison!

@  Paladin : (24 September 2018 - 06:51 PM)

Bezos' Dust is also what the Amazon staff makes, in proportion...

@  Patch : (24 September 2018 - 06:07 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2018 - 03:47 PM)

What, you never wanted some Amazon-exclusive PCP?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 September 2018 - 03:33 PM)

It's pretty hilarious to see people freely throwing around "PCP" in reference to new Punch-Counterpunch figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

Thanks Naas, you had to come back 2 months later to post that? :rolleyes In case you missed, I was reacting to Skankerzero's post, not the link which I did not check at the time yet.

 

New trailer was interesting. I am a bit surprised how un-Gordon-y Gordon looks like - no moustache or glasses? But I guess he is a young man still. Bullock looks great.

Poison Ivy will be in this too? Riddler is played by Cory Michael Smith, never heard of him but he looks the part.

I'm still torn on the basic premise, mostly for all the 'non-villains' we will apparently be seeing. There is just something a bit off putting seeing all those characters this early in a time line. That said, we are getting Gordon at one of his more interesting time periods, still a young cop before he fully realizes just how bad and corrupt things are in Gotham. Plus, we get more Bullock, I still say he's gonna end up being the best thing about this show.

 

But all that said, I do feel like this has promise based on that trailer, all the stuff with young Bruce is 'right' with Gordon being first on scene and being determined to help. It makes sense that he'd be a reoccurring character even at this age; as I can see Gordon being one to check in on him; even if he has a butler, just to make sure he's doing okay. It could really go a ways to help show just why Batman trusts him so much, not just because he was the 'one good, honest cop' in Gotham, but also because Gordon looked out for him and did all he could to help him all those years ago. There is really a lot of character building potential here.

I am looking forward to seeing how Riddler started, for example. We all know the whole "cheating on the test" origin, but a guy as smart as he probably did try to make something of his life before donning the green suit.

My only worry is if all the costumed crime begins waaaaay before Batman appears. 'cause it's usually the other way around, and for good reasons.

Who is the woman in the red dress? (sorry I don't have audio here where I watched the trailer) - Lady Shiva maybe?

 

And good points, Database. Even the Nolan series showed how much Bruce remembers from that night, and how Gordon comforting him meant a lot to him - and why he choose him as his first ally.

Joes Chill is probably not in this - given how they showed the same "robber" at the Wayne manor, I think there will be a deeper mystery about the deaths of the Waynes - certainly they were in the ways of some powerful people in most continuities.

The trailer looks...surprisingly good. Cop Drama meets Superheroics. Seeing the amount of villains on parade is a bit disappointing though. Cobblepot especially feels miscast here. He's a dead ringer for Alberto Falcone.

 

Similarly, with the cop drama aspect they'd be stupid not to borrow heavily from that genre since so many future Bat villains fit that MO. Julian Day, Holiday, Victor Zasz...

 

Three seasons right there, with the GCPD on the trail of these serial killers.

 

All in all, I'm willing to see where this goes.

I can get behind Penguin and Riddler being part of the narrative, as they've both struck me as a bit older then Bruce (The Arkham games have even go so far as to give Riddler grey hair), but the guy cast as Cobblepot...eh. I suppose that's the point of an origin story. They aren't supposed to be recognizable as the people they become.

 

I just hope they don't get so enamored with the famous Rogues that they neglect the ones that would work beautifully in this set up. Heck, bring in Salvator Valestra from Mask of the Phantasm and his crew. There's no lack of small time crooks and crime bosses for the GCPD to deal with in addition to the "mundane" Serial Killers that are future Bat-foes.

 

Heck, with this sort of set up you could even get The Mad Hatter to work pretty well.

 

EDIT: I do know I would love this show forever if one of the reoccuring small time street gangs was the Crazy Eights. For those drawing a blank, they were shown in an episode of Batman Beyond as a rival crew to the Jokerz.

The cops don't get a handle on these guys though. That's sort of the point of seeing the villains before they became villains bru-ha-ha. Gotham's spiraling out of control, and these guys are the result of that spiral.

Gotham wasn't always a bad place to live, thats something that most stories comment on a few times. Right now it's not sunk into the completely corrupt hellhole it will be. Right now we're seeing how Gotham ends up to the point it needs someone like Batman. The typical Batman villains are either nobodies or small fish. They're not actually dealing with Penquin, Riddler, or Poison Ivy; they're dealing Oswald Cobblepot who's just getting into organized Crime, they're dealing with seemingly paranoid nerd, they're dealing with woman who's likely just getting involved with eco-terrorism. They're only called by their villain names in the trailer, I'm hoping, becuase that is who the general public knows them as more.

 

Hell, at this point even Zsasz, since he was brought up as a possible character, hasn't yet been pushed over the edge, and is still a normal person. Depending on if they use him and how close they stick to his origins, he doesn't become a serial killer until after the Oswald has become the Penquin and uses his casino to cheat him out of everything he has. That's why we seem to be getting characters like Miss Fish, to be the villains before of Gotham before the town went to hell.
