    ....So how do you put this on? Like where do you start?

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Very VERY carefully.

       

      and you'd probably start with underwear first

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      You mean to tell me the underwear isn't attached to the rest of that? Because I honestly can't tell.

  2. Best thing about the new X-men book? It fixes a power problem.

      It firmly establishes what passes for an Omega level Mutant. Previously everyone was just throwing out the title every chance they got whenever a powerful mutant showed up.

  3. So we just passed a new gun control law.

      Oh no...what is it this time?

       Basically our State made it that if a person has history of abuse or stalking they aren't allowed to purchase guns

      That’s good.

  4. Just learned the latest Wolfenstein, that was sold for its co-op, wont have local co-op.

    WHY?!

    1. Blacklightning

      To make you buy two copies, obviously.

      Big budget games prioritize graphics over performance. Games lost split screen once graphics got more detailed because they run like shit when they have to render two viewpoints at once. Even Mario Kart 8 for the WiiU and Switch runs noticeably worse when there are more than two players. It's not impossible to implement split screen, if you have low detail graphics or a low-detail mode specifically for the multiplayer mode, but considering how few people play games locally anymore, it doesn't seem to be worth to development time.

  5. Are you team failure (Skull) or team freedom (Plasma)?

    1. PublicEnemy1

      PublicEnemy1

      I'd rather be a failure than being part of Pokemon PETA.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Yeah, failure at least keeps it real.

  6. Huh. Captain Britain is a woman now, okay.

      .......

      I love women... dont get me wrong. But what is with all these swapping of genders for older heroes that the comics and movies are doing these days.

      I get that women can be strong but cant help but see its at the expense of the males being emasculated 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      FTR this apparently isn't the first time she's held the mantle

      212852-121765-psylocke.jpg

      And are specifically referencing the Jane Foster Thor thing?

    3. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Kind of. I know about her arc in the comics but I meant more like the stuff in the movies. Ghost in Ant Man and the Wasp was changed female. Mar-Vell in Captain Marvel was made female. Appearently two eternals that where male were cast to female actors for the movies.

      hahaha any dude getting mad because a few of the hundreds of male superheroes have female versions is emasculating himself

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Tails spin It sounds like they're trying to diversify more than anything else, I mean the majority of the characters you listed are low support characters within the films and comics which is why they do that.

    6. dbzfan7

      dbzfan7

      We can't have strong female characters that stand strong on their own, they have to take male hand-me-downs apparently. I honestly find that more insulting for women. The late great Stan Lee said it best honestly. Just make your own characters. I believe my brother did a survey in late high school or college...I forget....but more women wanted original female characters rather than female characters just leaching off a male characters mantle. 

      I do understand why it's done because it's harder to launch a new character from the ground up, compared to just getting a legacy extension. It's lazy, but it's safer. I try not to bother myself with this much as it leads to a lot of people getting upset.

    7. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @dbzfan7 I understand what you're getting at but that's a major issue in comics in general not just for female characters, I mean really think about it.

      We got Miles because Ultimate Peter was dead, we got Sam Alexander: Nova because Richard Rider: Nova was sealed off in a nightmare universe, Jen became "Hulk" after Bruce was killed, and Kamala happened because Carol took up the Captain Marvel mantel after Monica Rambeau took it on after Mar-vell died from super cancer.

    8. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I’m definitely on the side of original female characters. I want to see female superheroes really come into their own instead of slapdash jobs in replacing another character. Or if they ARE going to replace another character, add a new twist on it that makes it exclusive to that character. Like, Ghost-Spider and She-Hulk are fun because they are their own twists on an already established character, and are more than just “this character but opposite gender.”

      I want more female superheroes, but only swapping the gender of an already existing character feels lacking.

    9. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Polkadi~☆ About She-Hulk... let's just say you can remove her from the list of fun characters with a twist cause she's just the female dumb Hulk now.

      GODDAMNIT

    11. dbzfan7

      dbzfan7

      @Balding Spider To be honest I didn't like Miles til Into the Spider-verse made him more his own character I could get behind.

      I get why it's done, it just usually comes up by replacing a character rather than just integrating them into the universe free of charge. Probably why I feel DC handles this much better than Marvel...for the most part. For Marvel they have the Nova core which is perfect for diversifying heroes. Akin to Green Lanterns which had Jessica Cruz and that other guy take a GL book, and Hal have his own book, etc. Everyone wins in this case.

      I have no attachments to captain Britain so really I don't care. But I get what some feel. Unlike say new Thor where what only bothered me was making THOR a title. I really hate that. Jane's fine and everything but ugh...Thor is a name not a title...they really couldn't come up with a nice norse name for Jane to go by...really......Take Thor's spot fine, but the name too....his name isn't a superhero name it's HIS NAME.....

      @Polkadi~☆ Yup, Jason Aaron has ruined my favorite Hulk

      However on the flip-side Al Ewing made OG Hulk the best Hulk bar-none

      Yeesh. The PS4 Spider-Man version of Taskmaster had a better design.

      The MCU design just looks like if Ultron came back as an assassin or something.

    7. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      ...THAT is Taskmaster?

      I am very dissapointed.

      Look at this guy, he looks like he'll take your ass down as opposed to the MCU version that looks like he's two glow-sticks away from scratching his shield on the turntable

    9. KHCast

      KHCast

      Even the MvC3 design looks better. Especially his alt.

    10. Balding Spider

      I just remembered Taskmaster is fighting Widow on a ruined bridge.... just like the Avengers game. *sigh* I'm so tired of corporate synergy

      Aside from the mask everything else seems to check out, i don't get what the fuss is supposed to be.

    13. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @TeoskavenIt's just uninspired and boring. I mean they gave us Red Skull & mysterio and made it work. It didn't even need to a 1 to 1 adaptation it just needed to be... not a Destiny character.

    14. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      But that's what Taskmaster's armor is ever since they wanted to mix the classic costume with the Udon armor, and when they did it for PS4 Spider-Man noone complain.
      Also, this is concept art, for all we know the end results will be different altogether, for better or worse.

  10. It's so weird that I'm more interested in the new X-men books than the new MCU announcements.

  11. On one hand Taskmaster , but on the other ScarJo and her shit take.

    1. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Eh? What is the context?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice Taskmaster is in the Widow movie, but I've come to dislike Scarlett Johansson as a person after her response to criticisms of her playing a Japanese woman. That response only gets worse when you realize her co-star RDJ played a character that was all about showing how fucked up it is and was for a white person to be playing a minority is in the industry in Tropic Thunder.

  12. Listening to a podcast that's summarizing the latest RWBY season... I just got to the part about the dark god crashing into the moon like a driver after an all night rager.

      What podcast is this?

    2. Balding Spider
  13. Mary Jane is getting a comic book, and something is happening with Annihilation again(?)

  14. Good lord, Ducktales even referenced Quackerjack's time top

     

  15. Creepshow the series is looks fun

    Also did anyone know they made a Creepshow 3? I just found this out.

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      Where's Max???

      And no Mickey because he wasn't in Disney Afternoon Canon unless you count House of Mouse lmao 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Soniman He's probably staying over at Pete's place chilling with P.J.

    3. Ernest the Panda

      Ernest the Panda

      Aren’t the original and modern Ducktales series’ two different canons?

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I mean yeah, but it's not like they can't bring in this cannon's take on those characters.

    5. Ernest the Panda

      Ernest the Panda

      So that would mean the Disney Afternoon Universe seen in Ducktales 2017 is a different DAU from the one in the 90s.

  16. Oh it's Kamala Khan, and that dumb Terrigen Mist.

    1. mayday2592

      mayday2592

      Whats your problem with it? It It is true to her origin after all. Is there some rule Inhumans cant  have representation?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Dude, you're reading too much into my post. Yes it's from her origin, but then it also led to some of the dumbest story lines from the comics. That's my only real beef with the Terrigen mist.

  17. That Avengers gameplay looks so limited and restrictive. Also God of War has the best Thor combat apparently.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Are you talking about Ultimate Alliance 3 or the SE Avengers?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      The SE one. I don't care for UA3 but that game has its own established identity so I doubt I'll ever really lay into it.

    3. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      The part that has been leaked seems to be focusing on the prologue, and for your average AAA cinematic action game usually it's one of the more scripted parts, so i'm not too surprised.

  18. Can you imagine if future Sonic games continue to spam its main theme song as much as Forces did?

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Imo, rather have that than no theme song at all tbh. It's like a part of LW/Gens was just missing.

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      If you think Forces spammed it's main theme too much, you obviously don't remember Secret Rings all that well.

    3. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      He, wouldn't mind, honestly. It's a decent way to help keep a game's recognizable, imo.

      @Waveshocker Sigma TBH I don't recall Secret Rings that well outside of some of the multiplayer games

    6. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Oh, and you're just gonna let Mario, Kirby and the Smash series (since Brawl) get away with spamming their theme songs on a regular basis?

       

      At least no matter how many times they are, you can count on Nintendo themes at least having variation if they're to be heard a dozen times. Sonic Forces just slaps its chorus onto a QTE and calls it a day.

    7. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      @Balding Spider In Secret Rings the main theme plays when you are in the main menu. Completing any stage or mission brings you to the main menu. In a game based around doing like 10 missions per stage. So basically every time you do anything...

       

    8. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @HarkofthewaaDon't forget that it's also the theme for the result screen.

    9. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Harkofthewaa oof, maybe I didn't forget but blocked it out for my own sanity.

    10. Celestia

      Celestia

      I don't mind it honestly. Often the variants are better than the "main" version anyway, I don't like TSR's Crush 40 song much but the menu versions and stuff are nice.

  19. That Cats trailer made it easier for me to accept the Sonic movie design and premise... I-I think this trailer took something from me.

    1. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      Initial contempt for the original design, I take it?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Perkilator No, I mean the on-screen nightmare from the trailer.

  20. A reminder that in Marvel's The Defenders New York is held up by dragon skeletons.... and people wonder why the movies refuse to acknowledge the shows.

    Spoiler

    Well most of them anyway. Nice of them to acknowledge the Agent Carter show.

     

  21. There should have been a Ken Penders world in KH3

      Don’t blame him. But he said he’s not a fan of racing games in general.
