The Flood / Re: Daredevil season 3

On episode 8 right now, but I love it so far.  Kingpin's plan is very obvious from the beginning, but it was still interesting to see the characters try to bring it to light to send him back to prison.  Bullseye is also a welcome surprise.

The Perfect Game episode felt an art-house episode with the Bullseye flashbacks, and I oddly liked it.

I think  Mads Mikkelson would've been a better choice, but I digress.  I'll still check out the series to see if it's any good.

I know Jason Todd is supposed to show up in the series, but did the writers accidentally mix up the lines for Todd and Dick Grayson?  Dick is a golden boy worthy of the Batman cowl, not a brutal Murder McStabby that shoots people and breaks their necks.

I doubt the current Republican controlled senate would accept this plan in a million years because the borders are drawn in such a way that the Democratic Party would automatically gain +6 senate seats.

I was gonna say, is all of California a blue state? I was wondering if any gerrymandering was being slipped through on how the borders were suggested, but I don't know enough about the political climate there apart from California being some sort of hippie-liberal-nightmare-paradise place.

No, I think NorCal has a slightly heavier Republican presence.  The idea in Southern Oregon for a "State of Jefferson" is where Southern Oregon and NorCal form into a new state because "the liberals control everything."

Just like the State of Jefferson dream though, this will be laughably be killed off.  As said before, the Democrats would just end up with more seats.

The real problem with invasions is that the PvP itself is just bad and nobody should be subjected to it.

It's especialy bad in this remaster becuase:

-The Anti-Cheat does not actually work against malicious cheats such as instant-cursing weapons
-The Anti-Cheat is exploitable because cheating invaders can seed your world or character with varibles that will get YOU banned or brck your save
-Backstab/hornet ring meta was not fixed
-The game is even more buggy with phantoms in the world than the original was
-Miyazaki gave Invaders estus again
-Upgrade based matchmaking has made the problem with Dark Magic Twinking even worse

I actually had this happen, and it pissed me off.  After I got to the Darkroot Basin, someone invaded me.  They rushed Andre, killed him, and then I was cursed and got egghead, weapon broke, and I was killed instantly.  I didn't even see the guy.

Gonna have to start over.

I'll admit the woman fighting on the frontlines with a prosthetic arm took me out of the immersion, but the game looks fun enough for me to overlook it.

The comments section is the usual cancer I see.

Oh and I liked it, but some of the funny parts were timed poorly.
Thor starts having a giggle after being revived, yet the last thing he saw was his brother dying.

I think the Russos said it was a defense mechanism to suppress his emotions, like how awkward he acted around Rocket when they were talking about what Thor lost.  It's understandable I guess.

Also Nando v Movies had a great video about Thor's weapon forging that I think would've been a nice addition, though probably not entirely needed.

i just need to know one thing

how much of a clusterfuck is this movie on a scale of 1 to suicide squad

i'm not asking about the film's quality, i'm asking how coherent it is

because the #1 trepidation i have going in is the fact that they're juggling 300 million characters in it, and i want to avoid a migraine

It took some getting used to, but it's not a huge clusterfuck like I feared.

Movie was great, 9/10.  I wasn't expecting it to be that fucking violent and dark though, so kudos to the Russo brothers.  And on another good note

Thanos isn't treated like other MCU villains where he makes quippy jokes and gets tossed around.  He literally annihilates the fuck out of anyone that gets in his way.  And even with the huge amount of characters and story the Russos had to deal with, they still managed to flesh out Thanos in a meaningful way.  It didn't feel *totally* contrived, but you could understand why he is what he is.

I can't wait, tbh.  Viking age has been a huge interest of mine lately, so I'm looking forward to continuing Ragnar's work with Northumbria.

Sagas are a nice little thing for CA to play around with, so they can give us specific points in history that they may not be able to get a full game out of.

the whole film felt like Rian Johnson showing just how empty and derivative JJ's era was and trying to turn it into something interesting.

"Snoke is a Palpatine ripoff. He's dead now, and his death services the character of Kylo Ren"

"Rey's parents are junkies also stop asking it isn't important"

Agree with pretty much all that except Rey's parents.  I think that was just Kylo fucking with Rey mentally to get her to join him in his "Nothing fucking matters anymore" crusade.

I walked away satisfied.  The only parts that really bothered me were

Super-Leia (though it shows how strong she is with the Force, now that Carrie Fisher is dead her "bigger role" that the scene appeared to hype is pretty much dead in the water and stands out as very "wtf" material), and the CGI chase scene when the po-po chased Finn and Rose.

I really liked seeing Luke again, but felt let down.  JJ said Mark Hamill's performance was "Oscar-worthy", but it didn't seem that way to me.  Mark pulled off a very serviceable Luke, but it's not award-winning by any stretch.  I feel like Adam Driver and Oscar Issacs have to carry John Boyega and Daisy Ridley on their backs in terms of the new generation's acting.

The visuals were great, the story-telling was pretty good compared to TFA, and--unpopular opinion--but the Porg didn't really annoy me like I predicted.  Sure they probably had a scene-too-many, but they weren't Jar Jar levels of awful.

You know this won't be a popular opinion but I'll just say it

I think this game will expose that Kojima really isn't that amazing of a writer. His last masterpiece was considered MGS 3, but people forget one of the lead assistant writers who helped him, Tomokazu Fukushima, left after MGS 3. Hence why everything after wasn't exactly amazing with story.

The fact not even Guillermo del Toro understands what is going on after being explained, isn't a good sign of Kojima's "amazing mind", it's an example of someone I think has gone a little too nuts with creative freedom now that he isn't restrained by MGS.

If you want a writer who's cock people suck that actually deserves it in the Nip gaming industry, it's Yoko Taro.

But who knows, I could be wrong and people could be sucking his cock even more and he actually deserve it, but so far sorry, I don’t think he does. MGS 4 was horrible with story and 5 has none of it

That's honestly one of my biggest fears with the game.  Like, it looks cool and has excellent star power with Norman Reedus, GDT, and Mads.  But the trailers make this game feel like it'll be one of those, "Oh this is SO much smarter than you, the game is so deep and mind-bending, you HAVE to like this game!" types.

Why does Black Widow looks like that fucking trailer trash serial killing prostitute lmao

The only logical reasoning I've seen is that she drastically changed her appearance since she, Cap, and the other superheroes that didnt agree with the Sokovia Accords are effectively enemies of the state.

Chris Evans is rocking that beard though goddamn.

I feel it's far superior to Unity and Syndicate, and have been having more fun than I thought I would.  Not too thrilled about the RPG aspects and the first 10 minutes just turned me off for a bit because of how abrupt it starts, but it picked up later on.

It was alright.  On the scale for current DC movies, I'd rate it second below Wonder Woman.  It's slightly better than the others, which isn't really saying all that much.  Story was pretty cookie-cutter as it gets, the villain was fairly forgettable, and I was incredibly distracted by the CGI and obvious green screen.  Cyborg himself looked terrible and it really took me out of the experience when he was in full-view without the hoodie.  I liked Batfleck in BvS, but here he just looked absolutely bored.  Ezra Miller was a fairly bad Flash in my opinion, and I was kind of annoyed that his scenes basically looked like Quicksilver's (X-Men version) scenes but with seizure-inducing lightning bolts exploding everywhere.

I will say though it was refreshing to see Superman have emotions extending beyond "I'm a brooding individual that's on the verge of cutting myself" and I noticed that there was actually a color palette besides the depressing grey/blue/black hues.  That really brought a smile to my face.

Just finished watching the campaign as well and I'm legit surprised at how they handled it with everyone. I was expecting something far more cheesy or just not handled with the care it was. I'm really REALLY surprised they had you walking through a POW camp in the end and photos got taken and popped up over German war crimes. Really drove the message home I thought.

Yeah, glad they handled it maturely and respectfully.  I expected some sort of POW event after watching the trailer with the Jewish soldiers but thought it'd be an extremely edgy "LOOK AT THIS IT'S SO DARK AND SHOCKING."

Finished the campaign last night, though I'm not sure if I'll touch MP that much.  At least the guns feel like they pack a punch, and I'm kind of amused that they seem to have taken some inspiration from BF1. If your rifle has a bayonet, you can charge with your character doing the heavy breathing-then-HYYYYAAAAAUUUGH scream thing.

But yeah, story was pretty solid and didn't feel TOO ridiculous...well, except for the train level.

At least it was better than last episode.
What exactly is so dangerous about the army of the undead? A hand full of exhausted men managed to hold off thousands of them so an army of thousands should be able to hold off the entire White Walker army without a problem. They don't even have to worry about their comrades turning into wights since they have to be touched by a White Walker in order to join their army.

I wouldn't be surprised if they retcon that by showing that WW's just have to be present or nearby to raise wights.


A White Walker has to touch another living human in order to turn them into another WW.  They simply need to be near the dead to raise them.

Though my current headcanon for why he needed to touch Viserion to turn him into a wight is because dragons, since they have a strong relationship with magic, required a more personal touch to be turned.  NK probably had to use a lot of magic to raise him.

EDIT:  Apparently the season 8 leaks are Fake News.  I'm heading to work, so I'll try to see if I can find links on my breaks.
