  1. How the hell is Batman the most OP character and yet so ineffective at the same time?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Depends on the writer. 

      A good writer knows how to balance them both, making Batman’s victory hard fought, and deserved, usually by giving him an opponent that does put him through the wringer and force him to break his own limits to survive and overcome.

      A lot of DCAU stuff, especially TAS is like that. There’s almost never a time Batman is ungodly OP and capable of doing insane things. I think the best example of this is Worlds Finest, where Batman has to outsmart, rather than using strength against Superman. Superman uses his abilities to discover his identity and immediately hold it over his head.

      Batman then has to outwit Superman by sneaking a tracker on him and spying on him til he gives away the identity himself. It makes it clear Superman and Batman are strong in different aspects. Hush also succeeds with this general idea very well as well.

      Oh I meant more in the context of the comics. The DCAU stuff established his abilities pretty consistently, but in the comics they had him kill Darkseid, and keep himself from getting sucked into the vacuum of space by having a strong grip, and yet he can't clean up his home which has only progressively gotten worse over time. I mean how many secret societies are we up to in Gotham at this point?

  2. Tonight I discovered Letterkenny, good god.

  3. So happy Marvel comic's made space cool again. It was a rough period when Bendis and Carol were in charge of it.

  4. In which Kirk Thornton (Shadow the Hedgehog) voices Donald Trump...

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Is this movie getting a redub for America then? Because Trump’s supposed to be voiced by English impressionist Tom Culshaw.

  5. The Men in Black cartoon talk reminded me of the Godzilla Cartoon (done by the same animation company), and that Frank Welker voiced Godzilla, and Linda Blair (she played Regan in The Exorcist) voiced an Eco-terrorist leader. .....Cartoons were weird back then.

  6. Some people got sent Bloodstained early...how good for them

      Oh it’s out??

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Officially it's out the 18th but some (the backers I assume) are getting their copies early. I'm watching the first 30 minutes on twitch right now.

  7. Oh cool, Rob Liefeld lost his damn mind again and ran to Instagram: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2019/06/11/rob-liefeld-quits-twitter-following-dc-tweet-controversy/

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      That spooked me for a second there. I thought you meant Rob Halford of Judas Priest fame and I was like "no don't let one of my heroes become one of the villains ;~;"

  8. My mind is still stuck on how lackluster Crystal Dynamic's Avengers looks.

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      They really do look like stunt doubles.

      At least Spider-Man PS4 was trying to do it's own interpretation of the characters. This Avengers game just looks like they're trying to sidestep using the faces of the MCU cast.

    2. Dr. Detective Mike

      Dr. Detective Mike

      I could have dealt with how they looked but I was in full "Fuck off" mode when it got all online, live-service-y. Right now, I'm 100% uninterested.

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Yeah it's straight up Games as a service.

    4. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Oh, that part.

      Considering Square's previous games, I'm disappointed but not surprised. Hitman 2 was hit with this hard. Can't say I'll get the game for this reason.

    5. Sean

      Sean

      Think I heard something about being an offline, single player mode

  9. New rumor came up that Warner bros. want to end the DC App, cancel their shows and make all their shows the same format as Arrow/Flash.

    https://thegww.com/swamp-thing-inside-the-downfall-of-dcs-murky-monster/

    BRB I gotta stare longingly at a bottle of poison.

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      does this mean Young Justice season 3 can just air on cartoon network and/or netflix now

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      What do you mean same format? 

    3. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      It's just a rumour. Don't touch that poison yet, okay?

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Dejimon11 In that they prioritize looks over acting talent, introduce designated black support friend for the main hero, having the main lead get arrested (shit, I'm told this even happens in Archie), dead parents (granted that's rampant in most cape books).

      79a810e0c2f80cee40e3fc6b3d380bbe.jpg

      ig-blerd-vision-omg-james-youre-so-smart

      This also includes having a science base, having a character do something wildly out of character for the sake of shipping/moving the plot along/drama, and having secrets being the most harmful thing of all, and the people on these shows always think they need to protect someone from them or something just as dumb

      @DanJ86 Oh I know, I'm just keeping it on standby because this sounds like just the right amount of stupid to be real.

    5. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      You're rather cynical about Arrowverse huh

    6. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Kuzu the Boloedge Well, no...maybe a little.... WHY DID BARRY CHANGE THE TIMELINE!!!

    7. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Honestly it's less an arrowverse thing as much as a CW show thing. 

    8. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Yeah I mean even Archie Andrews couldn't escape the prison cliche.

    9. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Did somebody say Batwoman? *shot*

    10. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Talk about not having hope in a show...

  10. Fuck Gamefreak

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      What happened?

      Nvm, found out... fuck

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      God, all that work

    3. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      I hope there's an update to add the rest in.  I'm honestly a bit hurt by this.

  11. Nintendo won.

  12. Wow, there were people that seriously thought the MCU cast were going to voice the Avengers? I-wha-how?

    1. KHCast
    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Like I'm reading through some random posts and some legit thought they were going to do it. I mean was that in one of the leaks or something?

    3. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      RDJ alone would probably blow the game's whole budget lol

    4. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      The least would have probably been renner. ScarJo and the big three, especially RDJ yeah right. People had their hopes waaaay to high.

    5. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      but square isn't made of money like disney is, what the heck are they thinking

    6. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Chili Dawg Exactly. And if you've seen the Jungle Book, we've already been shown the range that Scarlett Johansson carries.

      @Polkadi~♪ I dunno man, that shit is weird.

       

    7. Ferno

      Ferno

      *Iron Man only has one spoken line in the whole game because he was voiced by RDJ and thats all the devs could afford*

  13. I feel like more people aren't worried that the Inhuman's are tied to the story somehow.

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      That line from banner could have been missed by a lot of people since the trailer was honestly everywhere. The least they could have done was have Black Bolt in shadow or his brother( forgot his name)

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Maximus. Easy way to remember is that he's Loki, but boring.

    3. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Lol right. Saw him in the avengers assemble cartoon. He was like you said boring

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      You think that was bad? I saw him in the Inhuman's show, that was a whole different level of bad. That shit was so weak they didn't even give him powers, I mean dude controls minds and they didn't even try.

    5. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Haha. Wow. No wonder they never made a movie out of them.

    6. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Well that was due to Marvel's own personal Civil War between divisions.

  14. Ultron's gonna be the villian isn't he?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      But don't we have the token green Avenger?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Nah he's just a white guy with an irradiated tan that he option selects.

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      Oh don’t worry. Black Panther will be available if you pre order the season pass 

    4. Wraith

      Wraith

      Literally the only problem I have with the Avengers showcase is the lack of Kamala

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @KHCast *sigh* I know. And your comment just proved we need a Sonic crying reaction, damn what Sega says

      @Wraith Or literally anyone of Color, like for the love of god they could have at least given us the Vision.

    6. Wraith

      Wraith

      Black Panther is a character you save for later. 

      All of the other poc

    7. KHCast

      KHCast

      @Wraith you don’t have a issue at all with the cynical “games as a service” model being applied, the fact it’s not completed, and is gating off content based on platforms. Cause that all sounds pretty underwhelming for a game that’s been in development as long as it has

    8. Wraith

      Wraith

      Nope. It's all stuff I expected and new content being free is a pleasant surprise.

    9. KHCast

      KHCast

      I mean fair enough, guess I just don’t tolerate or accept that kind of stuff as much and it personally feel it can distract and take away from my overall experience having it in, especially if it’s shoved in your face constantly

    10. Wraith

      Wraith

      I take it on a case by case basis. There's not enough information for me to assume this game is toxic yet just because it's AAA and they floated around a few buzzwords.

    11. KHCast

      KHCast

      I mean it being a live service to me already is a concern since most of those games aren’t that satisfying or good imo. I’m not saying it’ll be shit, but I’m not really that hyped, and am just concerned with how this plays out. So many years in development for a live service type experience just sounds...extremely underwhelming. My worry is that it’ll end up a Fee-2-Pay style experience with a bunch of monetization(even if there are no lootboxes), dlc, and season passes, with a bare bones hollow experience story wise, and a heavy emphasis on co-op vs single player. 

      but maybe it’ll end up not being that. With Square Enix on helm, who knows where it’ll go

    12. Wraith

      Wraith

      I don't really have much to say except I expected the game to be shallow fun when they announced it and that's what I'm getting so far from the sounds of it.

  15. I wish Disney and marvel would learn just because the roster works in the the films doesn't mean they work in other mediums. I mean FFS imagine being able to turn into a Kaiju sized warhawk mech: Infinity-Countdown-Darkhawk-4-Cover-600x

  16. *snicker* So *chuckle* dat Avengers reveal...

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Half decent and exciting.

      Half triple A trash and worrying.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Dude I swear it feels like its going to be Avengers-Destiny

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      That's my fear too, but the glimpses they gave of the "gameplay" and story have me interested.

  17. Man, Square going in real hard on disappointment.

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      It really hasn't been that bad. At least thru had a extremely strong opening act 

  18. So all I really missed so far was more FF7, cool.

  19. ...Why haven't we constructed a bingo card dedicated to possible E3 fuck ups?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Because we know all of them are inevitable

  20. I think I'll probably skip Square's conference.

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      I wouldn't.  Avengers news is guaranteed, and a certain something was leaked..

  21. Lot of Ubisalt going on right now.

    How many Tom Clancy's were there again?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer
    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Oh. E3's kind of a bust this year, aint it?

    3. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      I think the Tom Clancy salt would be less if one of those were Splinter Cell, just saying

  22. Brian Michael Bendis is going to write Legion of Superheroes. My condolences Legion fans.

  23. I know it's early to call it, but I think Bethesda takes it for worst conference. The hype of Doom and the interest of Ghostwire is vastly overshadowed by the blatant lies and self aggrandizing of Bethesda proper.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Doom just felt so underwhelming to me. I’m not sure if it’s the conference or the game itself that made me feel that way

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      doom was underwhelming because most of it was stuff we already knew

    3. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      And the murder of Commander Keen.  I'm not even that big a fan, but seeing that God it hurt.

  24. Well Doom looks as cool as expected.

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      At least it's pretty hard to screw up it.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      At this point I was expecting the game to just be a CG trailer

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      Maybe it’s just me, but it doesn’t feel as over the top looking. Seems pretty mild. It looks fun, but so far, I’m not seeing what I saw with the first one
