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)

@  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/

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)

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.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 08:35 PM)

But that's not you doing something, that's something being done to you.

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Unless a meteor crashes down on your bed while you're in it.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 07:08 PM)

I've been trying for the last few hours to find an argument to counter this... and I can't do it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 03:32 PM)

The most dangerous thing you can do is get out of bed in the morning. Everything else that happens is a consequence of that one terrible, terrible decision.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Driving, by itself, is dangerous. Anything done to compromise the concentration of the pilot just makes things worse.

@  Benbot : (25 November 2019 - 12:46 PM)

Actually, I think you could make a reasonable argument for saying driving with glasses is dangerous. That is, more dangerous than driving with contacts or perfect vision. You have poor peripheral vision with glasses.

My firend hooked me up to this the other day so i downloaded it for ipad. It's a simple enough card game, easy to get into but a long time to try and master. Mechanics are fun and the games are short enough. Best part is ipad/PC/mac users can all challenge each other regardless what they're on, which gives it a larger userbase. Fairly trollfree too, I don't get many people logging out when they're losing.

If anyone wants a game let me know and I'll put my sign in for it here.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

I play fairly regularly, though having been in the game since prior to Open Beta in December, the game is starting to stale a bit. The current Meta game is very boring. It's either Control or what I like to call "To The Face" (Murlocs or general aggression aka "Zoo"). The saddest part about it is even without looking at any guides, you'll eventually learn the entire deck list and can make judgements on what deck is what based on the opening turn.

 

There are a few bright spots though. Control Warrior when played properly is always fun to watch even when you're on the receiving end, Miracle Rogue Decks are Glass Cannons in the extreme (I always respect those running them), Mages have some Spellpower Secret Decks running around, and Hunters have finally answered the calls of stopping abusing Unleash the Hounds with some very potent mid-range Beast decks that are a bit of a nightmare if you can't deal with it.

 

But those are bright patches in an otherwise stale meta game. Curse of Naxxramas can't be released soon enough - I'm hoping it'll help break the log jam of the Aggressive Meta and start seriously punishing those that just brainlessly hit the face.

 

 

I tend to run Gimmick decks. I have a Knight themed Paladin Deck "Army of the Light". A Elemental themed Shaman deck "Fury of the Elements". A Treant/Ancient themed Druid Deck "Nature's Wrath". A Enrage Warrior Deck "No Pain No Gain". And my personal favorite - "Your Deck Is My Deck" Priest Deck.

 

That deck tends to lead to insanity like this:

Cool. I've only been playing a week (got released on ipad) but I'm running a defensive mage deck that's taunt heavy with a lot of combo hitters and I've just built a druid deck that's based around getting mana buffs and using it to combo out a ton of hitters, though I need to run more charge minions in there as they're getting summoned then slapped in the face a lot.

Had a weird Arena match that's been bugging me.

 

Me (Shaman) vs a Paladin

 

The set up:

 

He has a Stormwind Champion protected by a Divine Shield and boosted by a Kings to a 10/10 and a 2/2 Recruit. Plus a Light's Justice with one charge. He has 17 Health.

 

I have a Fire Elemental and a Spellpower Totem. In my hand are: Bloodlust, Earth Elemental, Lightning Bolt, Youthful Brewmaster, Earthen Ring Farseer, and Amani Beserker. I had 19 Health.

 

My plan was to use the Earth Elemental and Earthen Ring Farseer to heal myself up. Basically buy myself a turn with the Fire Elemental, Totem, and the Farseer then hit him with a Bloodlust.

 

I accidentally played Bloodlust instead of Earth Elemental. So, suddenly bequeathed with Rage Overwhelming I slammed into his face with my Totem, Fire Elemental, and a Lightning Bolt for 16 damage taking him down to 1. With the rest of my mana I popped out a totem - the 1/1.

 

His turn...he uses the Champion to knock over my Fire Elemental and then the recruit to knock out the 1/1 (O_o). He then plays Venture Co. Mercenary.

 

At this point, I figure the game's lost because I just straight up goofed. I notice he almost lets his turn run out before Ending Turn, likely believing that I had some kind of finisher waiting.

 

On my turn, I play Earth Elemental and Farseer, and hope for the best. I still have Brewmaster and Amani in hand, plus I drew into a Faerie Dragon, so I still had options - it's just he had the ammunition to knock over everything damage dealing on my board, but at 22 Health, I just had to draw into some kind of damage.

 

Cursing myself for the fool, his turn sees him...do absolutely nothing. He didn't AFK. He was looking around the board. He simply chose to do nothing. Letting the timer end his turn. I then hit him with the Farseer and won the game.

 

It just...I can see being dazed by suddenly having 16 damage ripped out of you - but he had the options on the field to eliminate my damage potential while still keeping his 10 and 8 attack minions alive to threaten me the very next turn.

 

In a ladder game, I could totally see that, but this was Arena. You spend coin to run it, so why wouldn't you play out till the bitter end? In the same vein that I had to draw into damage, all he had to do was draw into healing.

I recently got into this, I don't know my tag at the moment (I'll get it when i get home from work) but had the most hilarious exchange earlier in casual. I'm not especially good, and ran into another Priest running a deck I'm familiar with (it was a version of what I first started playing Priest with) And he was holding control well, we were countering each other fantastically, but he had a solid upper hand.

 

He's at 8, I'm at 11, I don't have taunters, and he has nearly a full field of smaller minions to ping me with. I'm dead, I know I'm dead. I don't have any plays. He has cleric on the field though, and heals a minion to draw, he's down to one, Turn ends, I'm at I think 5? He's at 8 and I've got like 4 worth of minions on the field.

 

I heal one of my minions, his cleric goes off, draws his last card. I heal another, again, -1 life. He's at 7. I shore up defense wise and end. He draws, -2, he's at 5.

 

He has me, he has to know he has me, but I've got just enough on the field, apparently, to worry him and I proceed to watch the greatest misplay I've ever seen. With cleric on the field, and I think 5 or 6 damaged minions, and no remaining deck, he plays Holy Nova. 

 

And I watch as he draws card after card for damage, until he ends up at -60 life. And then he quit and I was disconnected. Yeah.

So I created a joke deck based off a deck I myself had gone up against and found really unique.

 

Oh. Em. Gee.

 

sicdeck_zps01def529.jpg

 

This deck is...insanity. I was initially just playing casual with it, but I'm sorely tempted to start laddering with this thing.

For reference, a Windfury Harpy with a Blessing of Kings equates SIXTEEN damage a turn.

Blizzard has revealed all 30 cards of the Curse of Naxxramas Adventure Pack - being released tomorrow and a weekly release of a wing each wing for four weeks afterward.

 

Even though many of these cards are a "Hurry Up and Wait" type of deal...the game is going to dramatically change.

Let me change your mind.

 

But seriously, Maexxna I don't see really working Control side, because she's a gigantic target and much like Emperor Cobra just too slow to really be effective. That said, if an opponent drops her...steal her with a Cabal Shadow Priest.

 

 

As for Heroic Mode, I enjoy the challenge...well, except for Heroic Maexxna, who is giving me conniptions. The issue I'm having is keeping my head above water, health wise, and about the time I get a grip on her wave of small creatures, then the big boys start dropping.

Murlocs are a lot of fun.

 

And nigh impossible to stop if you've flooded the board early and drop the one that boosts the health of all Murlocs by +3 on Turn 3. It's basically a "I Win" card, because there's no way to stop them at that point.

 

Also once you obtain a copy of every Murloc card, you unlock their Legendary Ol' Murk Eye.
