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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 01:40 AM)

Havarti, without a doubt.

@  Greebtron : (12 December 2019 - 01:28 AM)

Not Don, thanks. I'd like a writer who actually cares enough to do the job properly

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 09:34 PM)

What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

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.

I've been trying to dig through my ever growing pile of shame, an epic backlog of games I've grown through various Steam sales and PS+. I'm doing pretty well too, burning through an SP game per week on average on top of the games I'm already playing. Of course I still have many more games to go across multiple platforms and a bunch of DLC for a fair number of completed games as well. 

 

I just finished God of War Ascension this morning, it wasn't bad for a game I paid $10 for and used the free $10 credit I got for buying Need for Speed during some sale Sony was having... So basically free. It was not nearly as good as GoW 3 was. Also finished up Binary Domain and Spec Ops: The Line a couple weeks ago. 

 

Now I'm starting Shadow of the Colossus, not sure if I'll really get into the game or not but I've heard really good things and could use a slightly slower paced game as a palette cleanser from the shooters/brawlers I've been playing lately.

 

Edit: I'm 3 colossi in and I'm torn on this game. The colossi battles are great, but I feel like they forgot the rest of the game. Story is insignificant, no enemies to battle, just a tedious journey with maybe some platforming that feels like a precursor to Assassins Creed or Uncharted. 

 

At the same time I've also been playing Civ V with a buddy a lot lately, Need for Speed Rivals (going for the platinum trophy), Batman Origins: Blackgate on my Vita, broken up with sessions of Guacamelee on the Vita as well, and I've restarted Far Cry 3 recently too (really want to play the co-op on that). 

 

I find I tend to multi-game a lot lately, not sure why. I'll be playing Civ V online on my monitor while playing God of War or NfS on the big screen, and sometimes play the Vita at the same time. I think I may have gamer ADD or something... maybe I'm just really bored.

Uh... I'm technically in the ESO beta, but after a few hours of play I'm not interested anymore. I'm liking fallout new vegas and super mario galaxy 2 right now. Putting in some good time on both of those.

Maybe too many strat games at once. But the steam sale was good for them.

Never had a problem. There was one point on saturday morning where I couldn't log in, but My brother was reporting problems at the same time so I assume it was a hot patch.

So recently Videomaster got around to sending my Backlog of b-day gifts, which includes Saints Row 1 and 2 double pack. Today I finally decide to play it. I'd kinda forgotten how bad SR1 is in certain aspects, the respect system here feels much more like forcing you to play activities and side missions.

 

On a sidenote, when creating my character, I realized you could have Green Dreadlocks... and well now I'm playing with a pseudo-'The Batman' styled Joker.

Edit - This quote is from X-Warlock. I don't know why all of it didn't show up. :???

That's honestly what I thought was so brilliant about SOTC. The feeling of isolation, and then BOOM this massive creature you have to take down.

 

Binary Domain and Spec Ops were both very good, I thought. Both very underappreciated.

 

I can also relate when it comes to your backlog problem. I have games piling up for the PS3, and then I went out and bought a 3DS on Black Friday (which I love). And at the same time, I'm very temped to buy a PS4. Being a nerd can get complicated. :D

I see the appeal in it, but it just sits a little oddly with me. I'll still play the game through but likely as a slower pace than I originally anticipated. Probably as a small break in between other games, play a colossi or two, put it down and come back again in a day or two.

 

Binary Domain wasn't bad, it was an interesting Japanese take on western shooters, but ultimately nothing to write home about. Spec Ops really impressed me tho. Gameplay was fun, but story was great and I honestly did not expect them to go as far or deep with it as they did. And the setting was just awesome, Dubai after a major sand storm and with a rogue platoon of US troops amid civil chaos. 

 

Oh, and I am now 2 only 1 trophy away from the platinum in Need for Speed Rivals, basically I just need to finish up all the cop speed lists. Probably have it by the weekend.

Hearthstone: Heroes of WarCraft closed Beta interspersed with some World of WarCraft and I just got Elder Signs: Omens for my Nook.

 

Oddly enough, Elder Signs is a lot of addictive fun for being a dice game. And I blame it on TotalBiscuit (The Youtuber, not the Allsparker :D):

Playing Thief on my PS4 lately, reviews be damned this is a decent game. Also have some sessions of Strider thrown in for good measure. On my PS3 I'm rocking the Ratchet and Clank HD collection pretty hard having platinum'd R&C2 and about halfway through R&C3 now. 

 

On PC I've been doing some Far Cry 3 co-op, still doing the BF4 thing, and Borderlands 2 (because I just cannot get sick of this game), and playing Batman Blackgate on my Vita.
