Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

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

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

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.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

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.

My right Joycon has been dead for...I don't know how long.  Haven't bothered to replace by having the Pro Controller around.  BUT, I do think the cheaper PowerA wired controller I got a couple years ago was actually a bit more comfortable to use even though it lacked motion and NFC support.

I got a basic Pro Controller for now. Went and beat the Game last night. Took me two attempts as it took me a while to figure out how to damage the Third to last boss form.

Alright time to rate this game

 

Zelda Links Awkening for the Switch gets a......10 out of 10

I love everything about this game.

Gameplay: check solid as a Octorock

Graphics: Its so adorable its charming and fun it answer all my questions about what this game would look like fleshed out in 3D

Music: I really love what they did with the music in this game but they took an already Iconic soundtrack and somehow elevated it

 

Other nitwits may piss and moan about framerate issues but honestly I never noticed anything in both docked and handheld modes

Others also may complain about the dungeon maker mode not being as robust as say Mario Maker and those people would be idiots this is large step forward to a Zelda Maker being a thing and if they gave it half a chance they would find a nice fun side game that complements the main game very well.

 

Love this game now time to be 12 again and have mom beat Eagles Tower for me

Agreed. The only thing I have is that it only took me 3 days to beat it. But then, that just makes me wonder how quickly I could beat the original now.

The graphics are awesome, and also stylized enough to still look good in a few years. The music is still recognizable from the source, but adds so much to the old chip tunes.

I'm kinda split on the dungeon maker. As an add-on to another game, it works pretty nice. It's a nice little golden saucer type time waster.

If the were to make an actual Zelda Maker though, they'd have to build on it. Instead of rearranging preexisting rooms, I'd want to be able to build rooms from the ground up with my own puzzles. I'd also want to be able to choose which rooms connect with the stairs and which chests have keys. Also go online instead of sticking a single dungeon on an Amiibo.

But as a proof of concept and as an extra added on to another game, this actually works pretty nice.

So I beat this, and been watching a few reviews, and I constantly hear about "The horrible framerate"

 

And all I can think is: "What are they talking about?"

 

So I finally decided to look into this framerate thing. I always thought it was something like some sort of slowdown.

 

I just watched a comparison video on youtube and when it played in 30fps I guess it was a bit slower? Then they play it in 60fps and it feels sped up for a few seconds, then it just looks like it's playing normally.

 

Then they do a side by side and I just don't see a difference.

 

I don't think my eyes work the way everyone else's does. It's just so weird to hear people complain about something I apparently can't see. Not sure what's wrong with me.

Yeah, I finished it and have been playing it just to mess around. I've never noticed anything. I guess some people are more sensitive than others. But when I hear "even if you don't usually notice, you'll notice this," and I'm just sitting there like, "what are they talking about?"

*shrugs*

Good to know I'm not the only one who didn't notice anything. I was thinking maybe there was something wrong with me.

I've noticed framerate drops here and there, but they don't bother me that much.

My only real problem with the game is that the bosses don't make the "bwerrrg" sounds when damaged and defeated. That was probably my favorite sound effect in the original, and I miss it.

I'd give the game a 9 out of 10 in that it is only a minor improvement on an 8 out of 10 game with prettier graphics. I never had a love for Links Awakening that I do for other Zelda games. It's good game and I don't care about framerate or what ever other than the blurry edge of view is a bit distracting. It's good and deserves the remake but that being said I probably wouldn't recommend this game at full price to any experienced gamer. I feel kinda cheated at the length of the game. Granted if I wanted to 100% it it'd get a bit more out of it and the Hero Mode would pose a good challenge. But this isn't a game I have a strong desire to replay or extend my time on. I feel if they knocked off 15 to 20 dollar the game would be more worth the price.
