You may not be interested in the gleichschaltung, but the gleichschaltung is interested in you. You will be made to care. You will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.

Re: The Incredibles 2 (spoiler free, mostly)

And yes, they show it off, and it is GLORIOUS. Many, near-endless scenes, almost entirely shot from behind Helen Parr's huge, glorious... wait- where was I? https://nypost.com/2018/06/20/hey-perverts-stop-talking-about-elastigirls-butt/ Note the inherently misogynist idea that only men are enjoying...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

That’s because you know how to read a comic book (and aren’t looking for an excuse to be offended).

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Ah, yes... Spider-AssGate. That was an incredibly silly controversy ginned up entirely by people who don’t read comic books. Not only has Spider-Man been depicted in that exact pose on hundreds of different covers and in countless panels over the years, so has Spider-Woman. But it was only controver...

Re: The Incredibles 2 (spoiler free, mostly)

One of the very few sequels that is as good as the original. It is very much “the Helen and Bob” movie, with Dash and Violet being more supporting characters than part of the ensemble. They’ve still got lots to do and it’s fun watching them come up with all kinds of clever stunts and outwitting the ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Space Godzilla! Destroyah! Zilla! Baragon! Orga!)

I saw Incredibles 2 , and it's awesome. I want to do builds, but of course it's got the classic "Spoiler Alert" thing going on, meaning it's probably best to wait a bit. The side characters introduced are pretty simple in terms of powers, save Voyd. Voyd’s powers seemed pretty straightforward to me...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars movie

Generally, my assumption is that upper management of multi-gigadollar corporate empires knows more about their business than I do. Doesn’t mean they’re infallible and it doesn’t mean I can’t be puzzled by their decisions. I think putting a pause on the gaiden stories and focusing on the wrap-up of t...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars movie

Which is an oddly out of character strategy for Disney. These are the people that have been known to, literally, convince sovereign nations to rewrite intellectual property law in order to continue to milk profits out of animated shorts that are nearly a century old... You’d think given the raging s...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars movie

There were sixteen-odd years between Return of the Jedi and The Phantom Menace... Star Wars fandom can definitely last without a new feature film every ten months.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars movie

And now there are reports that there will be no more “X: A Star Wars Story films. I know Disney wants to get as much as they can out of their $4 billion dollar golden goose, but I really think they should just push out Episode IX and let the property rest for a decade or so... the golden goose is a ...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Dragon & Splugorth Juicers! Burster! Mind Melter! Crazy!)

The Crazy is an interesting concept, but hoo-boy does it depend heavily on having a decent player who won’t quickly devolve into a “LOLZ! I am so wacky!” annoyance. My suggestion? The GM should choose the psychological illness(es) himself, with some input from the player as to what they’d be comfort...

You really shouldn't have said that. Pseudorandom number generators are coded with pure spite and raw hatred, and they can and do read the posts of any game that uses them. You've doomed us all.
