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

Yeah, I like Call of Cthulhu, but I never run it as presented in the books. I always use it for source material either for my modern urban fantasy/supernatural horror games, or as part of my Pulp Adventure games. I find the Pulp games let you do the detective work, explore the unknown, and face weir...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Mega-Juicers, Dragon & Splugorth Juicers! Burster!)

According to at least on source I've read, the M.O.M. (Mind Over Matter) implants that give them their enhanced abilities and psychic powers? Supposedly they could fit on the head of a pin. The tubes on their heads are purely cosmetic. They choose to look that stupid on purpose. Now, if it was just ...

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

And you'd think a Black Widow movie would be stupid easy to pull off. Just make a James Bond movie where the Bond Girl is the heroine, and then ramp the action up to superhero levels. DONE. You can even finally have Black Widow win a fight against someone who isn't a mook. And it isn't like Marvel h...

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

Also, it is AMAZING at how badly Marvel wants Carol Danvers to succeed as Captain Marvel and how badly they keep messing it up. She got re-branded as Captain Marvel and got her own solo book in 2012. Then it got canceled and relaunched in 2014. Then it got canceled and relaunched again in 2016. Then...

Re: Emmerich's Godzilla

He doesn't pack the sheer size (he's longer than some Kaiju, but is built more like a real Carnosaur than a massive super-beast, giving him a "puny" weight of 400 tons, versus 30,000 for Godzilla (in the Showa era, no less!). That does give a good indication of the sheer mass some of these guys hav...

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

While not exactly new, I've been reading the 2017 Iron Fist series, and it's much better than I thought it was going to be. WAY better than "Iron Fist: The Living Weapon". I'm still not a fan of the track-suit outfit they gave him, but eh.

Re: Invincible: TAS

Depending on who Kirkman uses,the style might be horrible looking( i'm talking Steven Universe level Fugly here ).He's also gonna have to definitely change the story alot,as most of what happened in the books ain't flying even if you strap a jet Engine on it... ;) I'd love if the animation was simi...

Yeah the had some pretty good jobbers in the old Nightwing.
