  1. >Sees Project Resistance trailer


    1. Teoskaven


      It looks harmless, certainly gives me better vibes than Operation Raccoon City or Umbrella Corps so far. No idea why people are freaking out, where they seriously expecting R3make from this?

      Honestly I don't know what I was expecting, but I was hoping it would be another fun single player experience.

  2. This weekend just hard confirmed Summer was over. As I'm typing this we just got hit with hard showers.

    1. Teoskaven


      Same, though I appreciate it TBH after the heatwaves we had here.

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      *Imagines giant shower heads hitting you with a torrent of water*

      Over the last couple of days it just suddenly got really chilly here.

    4. Perkilator


      For me, it's still summer; not just in date, but it's so hot I somehow got sick with a cough and a stuffy nose.

  3. Robert Axelrod voice of Lord Zedd, Wizardmon, and Armadillomon has passed away.

    Rest in peace.

    1. Noodle Panda

      Noodle Panda

      Ahh crap. I loved him as Armadillomon :(


  4. Guys, I can't deal with Cristina Vee's singing.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Do you mean that in a good or bad way?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I mean that in a bad way. She is a great voice actress but I just can't stand her signing.

    3. PublicEnemy1


      Well, I respectfully disagree.

  5. Let's be real for a sec. If Stands were real then Ken Penders would've been the main antagonist with his stand "Take On Me"

  6. Continuing to read ultimate FF and I hit the part where Greg Land does the art. It's eye poison. So many reused poses and facial expressions, and you can't help but see porn face all over the damn page.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Can you share a few screencaps for examples?

    2. Perkilator


      And can you spoiler tag it, just in case?

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @PublicEnemy1 & @Perkilator

      Some slight NSFW stuff due to suggestive expressions and poses.

      Who makes this face


      after learning their mom is alive?



      Or really any other time outside of a porno?

      Then there's him drawing a woman "dodging" incoming fire




      There are more examples but I think this gif does enough of talking for me


      I mean for real

      This complaint also extends to the background too.


      It looks like it was photo shopped in and give a pseudo-comic book esthetic but it still looks off, and in the case of the final panel unfinished. What is happening in the upper left corner of that last panel?


    4. Zaysho


      I never understand how he still gets work when stuff like his swiping is so heavily documented and something, at least from what I tend to see, that comic readers fucking hate.

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I don't know how the guy is still employed after learning he straight up swipes art from other artists sometimes from the same company.

  7. Send me your energy, I'm about to read Ultimate Fantastic Four.

  8. So is anyone here a fan of DC's Legion of Superheroes or even know about them?

    I ask because they're being pushed lately.

    1. Dejimon11


      I remember the TV show. 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Dejimon11 Well that's a good enough reference

  9. *sigh* Fine I'll try it. I mean if Venom can get a readable book why not Ghostrider?

  10. Speaking of Star Wars, anyone remember how racist the Phantom Menace was?

    Jar Jar is obvious, but do you remember the cruel & greedy hook-nosed alien? Or the ethnic stereotype crafty Japanese aliens with faulty weapons of war (yes that was a stereotype dating back to American propaganda cartoons)

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Maybe that's why that film is looked back on more fondly these days and called better than the Disney films.


      It because it was more daring where minorities didn't have any power.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @SupahBerry Don't know what you're talkin' about, they made Jar Jar a senator.




    3. Solister


      Well, I recently watched the movie [See complete review here] but didn't felt that. For me it was more notorious the inclusion of minorities in the sequels:

      Female Protagonists (Rey & Jyn)
      Asians (Chimrrut & Rose)
      Blacks (Finn & Saw Gerrera)

      and the lists goes on...

      I'm actually a bit impressed that no homosexuality has been shown in the saga. Likely, don't think they will do this in the very last movie from the saga.

    4. Teoskaven


      Wait, the federation leaders are supposed to be japanese? They speak with a russian accent in the italian dub.

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Teoskaven No joke, it's straight up dudes doing stereotypical Japanese and and Chinese accents.


  11. Today I heard Bendis is making Rogol Zaar a Kryptonian... Bendis is making this: maxresdefault.jpg

    A Kryptonian.

  12. More good news. Professional scumbag Alex Jones has to pay the families of the Sandy Hook victims:



    1. Mad Convoy

      Mad Convoy


      Unfortunately it’s not going to deter people who believe these conspiracies. But the impression I get from reading stuff from families and friends of Sandy Hook victims is that most of their ire is directed not at true believers but instead at people who know the conspiracies are BS but back them anyway for money, attention, whatever.

      This sets a nice precedent for family/friends of the victims to get some justice against the conspiracy theorists who saw a terrible tragedy and thought only of how they could make it about themselves and their agendas.

  13. Bendis writing Terry McGinnis is bad, it's just bad.

  14. Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is some good fantasy shit.

    1. Teoskaven


      So is it a retelling of the movie or just a prequel?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      It's a prequel, and it does not pull it's punches

    3. Stasis


      Grew up with the original and this new series is phenominal! Just finished episode 5. It's one of the best things I've ever seen and can't wait for a physical release.

  15. With the exception of FF14, and maybe SMT & DQ I think I'm done with big modern JRPG games. I don't like what's been done with the Persona series, I couldn't get into Fire Emblem, the Xeno-series isn't for me, and Pokemon feels behind the times and the inability to bring in all their mons despite having all the money in the world is a real spirit breaker.

    1. Wraith


      As alienating as final fantasy goes out of its way to be its probably the one I'm most attached to

    2. Miragnarok


      Digimon Story?

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Miragnarok Never played it, though I should look into the Cyber Sleuth after that pokemon vs digimon image was shown.


      I mean when the rival has an intimidating force like that, it really gets my attention.

  16. Carnival Row is a good show with twists so obvious you could see it coming from miles ahead.

  17. Today I learned about Joshua and the Promised Land

    It......good God, just why?

  18. ...I'm trying to remember the last time I watched a dubbed anime, and I'm drawing a blank.

  19. Ugh, projared just showed up in my recommended twitch streams.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      To be fair, he did just clear himself of pedo accusations, with a lot of people returning to him now.

      Yeah, he's still not the best person (while the nudes are consensual and they are adults, it's STILL not a good idea to run a porn blog) but the worst accusations are gone. That seems to be okay with many people,

      I'm more neutral to this, since I didn't really watch ProJared in the first place. I don't particularly care about the marriage drama, because that's none of my business and it shoud've never been made public in the first place. 

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      While he's proven himself innocent of those accusations, I find it hard to even watch him anymore, or even care about the situation. It feels like every party has been vindictive, idotic, or just a downright asshole. It's hard to particularly care when everyone involved seems to have a stake in trying to fuck someone else over.

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Okay even if he has cleared himself, I still saw the man's wang and I don't want anything to do with him in any form.

    4. Teoskaven


      There are add-ons for browsers that can block Youtube channels from your feed entirely.

  20. Safe to say Spidey got the most love with Marvel 1000, but I think the Captain Marvel, and Damage Control pages were the worst ones IMO.

  21. gonna put down Spencer's Amazing Spider-man for the time being. It's not bad but it is spinning its wheels until the whole kindred story happens.

  22. Don't buy Marvel 1000, its good but it's nowhere near good enough to justify the pricing.

    On a more positive note, I think Ewing is giving us a new black (?) superhero.

  23. If you're looking for a horror comedy, check out Ready or Not

    1. SonicWind


      Yeah, that's the vibe I got from the commercials.

  24. So Rosenberg is going to do a new Annihilation book?

    Okay, this could be good or bad. If he's left to his own devices and channels that X-men Annual he wrote we might have a great story to look forward to.

  25. I'm prepared to be labeled a heretic, but the more time passes the less this Spider-man news hurts me. I dunno, it's probably because there's so many interesting new projects on the way that we haven't seen yet.

    1. Wraith


      It's not gonna hurt much if you didn't care whether or not he got to dap wolverine

      I'm not too broken up about it. I have the luxury of not having it be my favorite take on Spider-Man live-action wise. And I was well aware of the flaws with it, so I can just hope for something better (not that I faith in Sony delivering).
