  1. *sigh* The end is in sight, Summer term is coming to a close and my internship is finished and I'll get a month to myself.

    Just need to finish finals.

  2. I'm upset that the new Silver Surfer just exists to give more lore to Cate's creation Knull.

  3. So, did anyone know She-Ra season 3 came out? Cause I didn't.

  4. Reading through the old Excalibur run from 88, and the second cyclops dad shows up with his space crew in 93 the art style transitions to Liefeld era, and it sucks:

  5. Weird that the latest Ghostrider book is about Danny and not Robbie. Then again Marvel have shown they didn't know how to market him outside of the first ark.

    1. Celestia

      Celestia

      I guess he's too busy with Avengers stuff, at least last time I checked. (I need to catch up on that book actually, it's great.)

  6. The first thing I'm going to do after this term is over is finally watch Captain Marvel.

    I'll try and leave my prejudice for the character in the books.

  7. You! Yes, you, why aren't you talking about Team Sonic Racing?!

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      i still think the heroes remake should've been the rumor that was real

      I still talk about it

      Supah Berry

      That's the thing... There isn't anything to talk about with TSR.

       

      At least with CTR, people talk, but for both the right and wrong reasons. TSR is merely there. It's a better game than Forces and the like, but again, there's still much less to write home about either way.

      Once you’ve played the game you’ve pretty much seen what it has to offer. It’s a game that exist with the most basic race tracks, it’s team gimmick really isn’t as good as I thought it would be although tower of that has to do with me not playing with more than 4 people. 

      The only positives I can say are the animated shorts and the music. Besides that you’re just better off playing Mario Kart 8 or Crash Team Racing.

  8. Today I learned that our town is having a LGBTQ pride party in early August.

    I might go, depends on how hot it is and how long my internship last that day.

  9. Aww man, Youngblood's story is lame.

  10. Ghostrider might be the most mishandled character(s) from Marvel. I mean they can't even keep his signature move consistent.

    1. Dejimon11

      In a world where Jean Grey exist that's saying a lot.

      Why does he sound like Dr. Claw in this game?

      Balding Spider

      @Dejimon11 I mean think about it. The ghost riders are basically demons that protect only the innocent, kind of like roaming demon terminators. Shouldn't they be casually taking out humans left and right whenever they are in close proximity?

      Also the Penance stare doesn't make sense as a tool to fight off evil. I mean its based on guilt, and ghost rider fights many demons, whom shouldn't be affected by it in any way.

  11. Jessica Alba's twitter got hacked. It's not as bad as it could be, but its still really bad.

  12. Rest in peace Russi Taylor, voice of Minnie Mouse, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Martin from the Simpsons among others.

  14. Sounds like Bethesda fucked up Wolfenstein Youngblood too.

    DOOM Eternal is (no pun intended) doomed isn't it?

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      I think it will be good.  DOOM, along as you follow the formula that makes it great, is pretty hard to fuck up.  The DRM may be stupid for the Switch's ports of the 1, 2 and 3; but I trust that they can nail the gameplay for Eternal.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I'm not saying Eternal's fate is set in stone, but the fact that this development staff crow-barred in so many bad ideas doesn't inspire confidence. I mean they thought not replenishing your ammo when respawning at a checkpoint was a good idea.

  15. Oh good, another Black character that uses lightning that was previously white.

    JeHyGhE.jpg

    And he's going to be written by the man that gave Miles dad a confederate slave owners name.

  16. Scott Summers being smug and getting the last word in is giving me life

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

    1. 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.

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

    1. Wraith
    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      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.

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

      Oh no...what is it this time?

    2. Balding Spider

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

    WHY?!

      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.

      .......

      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.

    10. Polkadi~☆
    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

      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.

    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.
