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.

@  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)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2019 - 01:47 AM)

This shout is empty.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  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.

What are you playing?

South Park: The Stick of Truth. Had a weekend marathon straight to the end and ended up missing some of the collectables. I've started a second playthrough with a different setup (first time was mage, going with warrior now) and I'm gonna be more careful this time.


Final Fantasy XIV. I've been on board since 1.0's beta years ago. I've enjoyed it quite a bit since the redesign, but I've been bored with it recently. I'm just not social enough to enjoy the party-up-with-random-people endgame content, so I've run out of things to do.


Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. I'm a fan of the series, so of course I'm enjoying this one. I'm just a few chapters in so far. I got it around the same time as South Park, so I haven't had a good chance to play it yet.

Playing a lot of PvZ Garden Warfare on Xbox One. It's a lot of fun.

I'm in the Project Spark beta, but my interest quickly died off when I saw all the micro transactions and having to pay for 'spark time' to play user created games that feature content you haven't paid for.

Finished South Park awhile ago, missed out on some of the collectibles mostly due to the auto save feature and not feeling like replayinfg the whole thing. Will play again at some point as another class.

Finished Layton & Azran Legacy.

Played the free cases of Layton Brothers-its good for a mobile game, but feels like it's trying too hard to be Phoenix. May spend a few bucks for the extra cases at some point.

Eagerly awaiting Layton vs Ace Attorney, though it seems like in the US it will be e-shop only?? Bah.

A bit of South Park and a LOT of TItanfall. This game is addictive! I've never played a shooter where I actually cared about leveling up. But then again the last shooter I actually cared about was the Halo 3 Beta...

Picked up GTAIV on sale from Steam... and boy am I glad I got it for less than $8.  Screen shots do not communicate just how... strangely the game plays.  From what appears to be wonky procedural animation to cars that handle like madness incarnate it's a really awkward game. Perhaps it's just a problem of playing on PC or just being too used to Saints Row, but I really liked San Andreas, but this is just... wow.

Ah, good to know.  'cause Steam shows a Metacritic score of 90/100 and the reviews on the store page are praising like mad.  Just goes to show: Don't always trust the popular opinion.  


But wow, even for a crap game the way it's crap is just amazing.  It's like Sonic 2006, someone had to sign off on this.  They had to look at those jangly, clunky, near-Muppet-like animations and say "Yeah, that's what we're going for!" and then watch cars bounce into the air over small dips in the road and say "Yes, this is realistic and not at all unplayable."  Not to mention the whole DRM nonsense.


If I had payed the full price for this game, I would be rightfully angry.  At just under $8, I just kind of find it amusing, like an episode of MST3K that you can play.  This is the Red Zone Cuba of video games.

Back to Age of Wonders II - The Wizard's Throne. Man, what a hard and sometimes frustrating game (the AI can be a real troll sometimes) but it's a lot of fun too. Just finished the last Fire sphere campaign and now moving on to Water (sigh... Halflings... this will be tough). 


I am preparing for AoW III this way, and also because, well, my video card kinda died weeks ago. As I wanted to buy a new PC in the near future anyway, I decided not to invest in a new card for about 40-50$, which would be obsolete for my new PC - sadly, my friend who will get the new PC for me (he works in a PC hardware retail store) has generally been sick in the last few weeks, meaning things are always getting delayed ...

I started playing Deathspank. I think that I am getting close to the end of it, and its been a pretty awesome game so far. It has some really annoying parts, but overall, it is definitely a fun little action rpg to play.

For me it quickly lost its charm - yes, the quests and character interactions are hilarious, but the combat is repetitive and after a while you will stop finding any new weapons. I never tried out the sequel for this reason.

I just dove into Aliens: Colinal Marines. I picked up a new xbox 360 copy for $5.99, and I thought, why not? So far, I am three missions in, and I am actually enjoying myself. The story is a bit of a mess so far, and the game isn't that difficult on the highest setting, but I am enjoying the weapon customization, and the music is very well done. If you get a chance, pick this up. Gamestop has it for $6 "new", and for that price, its definitely worth it.

Still on fallen earth: and I've lost my fear of PVP zones and progress towns. I needed a resource for research, and found it in ample supply around a progress town called "Hollister" which was also completely abandoned by other players.


And even if there are other folk running around... no one seriously shoots at travelers. And even if they do; I'll just wake up in the pod in the safe zone. I can log, do something else for a while and come back to it later.


Edit: Yay! My primary now has the resources to commit to the advanced motorcycle research. I just need to wait for a day and a half for the research to be completed! Christ, it better be worth it.
