    I’ve been wanting to watch it for ages. They said it was coming to Netflix last year and zi’ve been waiting for ages

    I’m not sure comedy characters count, but I guess. I haven’t seen any of the second season but I heard it isn’t very good. The big critism I heard was they dropped the quality of the animation
  6. X-Men trailer Looks like Wolverine Beast Magneto Juggeraut Psylocke Scarlet Witch Deadpool Nightcrawler Storm Mystique Unsure if they are all playable, though? Looks like most of them are and fills out the roster a lot more

    You said hot stud and from behind I assumed drop kick was code My bad, Bob
  8. It’s not that someone needs any of it, just I know that my time (And I’m assuming most other people’s) is already filled with games and screens as it is. I probably allocate too much time to all of it already (And I still have unopened games from last November) so I definitely don’t need another thing to fill up time between the things that already exist. Some of that is because that empty time is fictional and secondly because I want different stuff not more of the same stuff taking up my time. Again I don’t have anything against this thing existing but the idea that it exists because people need more games in between all their other games makes this seem very redundant.

    Do you mean literal drop kick or is that some kind of sex talk?
  10. This was from the press release posted in the EG article "It's designed to be complementary. It's designed to deliver a jolt of fun in-between the times you spend with your phone and your home console; something to fill the moments when you just want a game you can pick-up and play." I don’t know about you but maybe I would like the time between my phone, iPad, TV and work computer not filled with another fucking screen. I have nothing against this thing existing but who is thinking they don’t have enough toys and screens in their life already?

    The Comic Book Thread

    Tom King's 100-issue run on Batman, which would have concluded next year with issue #105, is no more. The writer will instead conclude his run with #85, which will arrive by the end of 2019. Comics Beat reported the news that King's run would end early and we've heard the same. While no reason was given for the writer's sudden departure, it's speculated that AT&T, which owns DC Comics, got cold feet about an upcoming twist in the final 15 issues that would "change the character for a generation." While we can't confirm this is the reason for the massive shake-up to DC's roster, it's worth noting that King has several unannounced projects still in the works at DC that will roll out over the next year.

    So I’ve seen a lot of Z but Super is the one I know the most. Regardless I can’t think of any examples where two characters have been fighting in the exact same form. The only one that comes to mind is Goku vs Vegeta when they’re both SS2 in the Buu saga. But even then it ends with a cheap shot and you find out later Goku was holding back both in terms of skill and he could have gone SS3 if he wanted. And that saga ends with Vegeta admitting Goku is the best. But they both get trounced by both Jiren and Broly so it doesn’t really say much. I definitely think Goku is a better fighter than Broly, he says in the movie that he needs to learn a few things. But Broly is saiyan equivalent of the Hulk so raw power just wins the day. I do think Jiren is a better fighter than Goku, though, if you stripped all the power scaling out of it and just put them on an even field.

    MUI has to amplify because Blue’s attacks don’t even land mind about hurt. So speed has to go up. Also before Goku has mastered UI he fails to hurt Kefla because Whis says he hasn’t got the offensive part of it down, only the defensive part. So if when he learns the other half he can do stuff that Blue can’t, then it must be amplified? Beerus would beat Toppo in his regular form and probably beat him in his GoD form because he literally just transformed in to it. Have to imagine the experience with Beerus would give him the edge. I’m not sure it would be a walk in the park, though As for Broly. It’s hard to say. Kale in Broly mode did walk through Blue’s Kamehameha like it was nothing and grab Goku by the face, but then Goku smiles afterwards. Some theories is because Goku wasn’t using a full power blast, but I think it’s because Goku is an idiot and even when he is about to get his head kicked in he is like “Wow, what a good fight” The problem with both Broly and Kale is there isn’t really enough data to work with. None of them have performed enough feats of strength to truly gauge where they lie, where as Jiren has tonnes of records under his belt at this point but he had way more screen time than either version of Broly mode. I still think Jiren is stronger using this non-math equation Broly couldn’t touch Whis who uses MUI but Jiren almost beat down Goku who was also using MUI. Is Goku stronger than Whis in MUI? Don’t know, but it stands to reason if Jiren could beat Goku, he could also at least fight Whis, which Broly couldn’t do It’s flimsy but it’s how I see it

    That’s what I hate about Kale and Caulifa, they went from “What’s a Super Saiyan?” To knocking out Goku Blue in like a week. It’s taken more or less 30 years for Goku to reach this state and the girls are literally like “You just need to let your back get all tingly” and boom. They create good fights and I get why they do that because it benefits the drama, but it is a detriment to the character building and long standing rules of the show. The amount of transformations the characters have is ridiculous. I think that’s why in Super they are making a concentrated effort to differentiate the characters and how strong they are and how they achieve it. Gohan is going back to mystical Gohan, Vegeta seems to be following deeper down the Saiyan god line with him going Blue 2, and Goku seems to be moving in to universal deity territory with UI. I think this is a good idea in theory but it doesn’t stop the fact that Goku has 7 different transformations and whoever has the strongest one makes the rest of the characters redundant anyway. Again it’s why I like Jiren. He’s just tough. No bullshit. EDIT: Also the sneaky move came way before that

    I forgot about this but this is what happens when base Goku takes on Jiren. Even without powering up he just gets beat up. Gogeta? I don’t know. Gogeta kinda whupped Broly, but he had to go blue to do it. And Jiren is stronger than Broly (Because he one shotted Kale when she turned into a Broly type monster in the tournament). So maybe but I doubt it.

    Hmm...I think it both amplifies power and also gives the user a new skill, particularly in the area of defence where “You can avoid any danger” according to Whis (Again, even with this Jiren hits and almost takes out Goku multiple times when he uses MUI despite that being seemingly impossible). And Goku Blue + Kaioken x 20 just couldn’t damage Jiren even the odd times he did land attacks. So the fact that MUI Goku can beat Jiren into submission implies a power boost as well as better technique and skill So I think if Jiren mastered it he would get the same buffs. He would get even stronger, faster and avoid any danger (Although he is already at a point he doesn’t really need too) Also I don’t think Goku is a better fighter. Even at the end where everyone is reduced to their lowest power and Jiren is almost defeated he still manages to stand up to Goku, Frieza and Android 17 with the first two literally having to pull him out of the ring with them to beat him because they just couldn’t out fight him. Also so when Goku first masters UI and cuts Jiren his response is “Don’t get cocky just because you powered up”. Again implying both a power boost and Jiren is still the better fighter Edit: Also I just got new wallpaper for my iPad 😁

    Obviously Super Saiyan transformations are exclusive to Saiyans, it seems to be the thing that makes that race special that they can boost and as Hit says when he fights Goku “cheat”. Although Hit can control bits of space and time so hypocritical, I think. Ultra Instinct is a form that technically anyone could do, but is supposed to be reserved only for gods and angels because it’s so hard to achieve. I can’t remember when but Whis says even Beerus has not managed it yet, at least not properly. But Whis also says that Jiren is the only mortal in all the universes that is stronger than a God of Destruction. So if Goku could do it, I definitely think Jiren could do it under the right circumstances. And considering he almost beat Goku twice while Goku was in Mastered Ultra Instinct mode, I think if Jiren learned it he would be entirely unstoppable. Even in his base form he is “stronger than time” (whatever that means), if he had MUI then I think he would be stronger than all of the deities, too. Jiren is my favourite DB villain because he is cool, not technically a bad guy, and is no gimmicks. I like what one of the Kai’s says just before Goku and Jiren fight for the first time ”He isn’t like anything we’ve fought before. Jiren is just strong. Plain and simple”

    All I’m saying is imagine if Jiren mastered Ultra Instinct. I think he would be the strongest character in all of fiction.
  19. I would have to imagine it’s not too dissimilar to PS+ style negotiations where a big game that has been out for a while and sales have slowed, ie Monster Hunter World or Fallout 4 which were big games for their respective release periods but sales probably trickle now, so they can “lease” their game to Microsoft for a set period for a set price + bonus if it’s one of their top downloads for the month or after X amount of downloads the publisher gets a cut You have to imagine the negotiations are really thought out as well and are planned perfectly with sales on a game’s DLC or expansion pack. I bet it goes the other way, too. Like Ashen was a small indie game that is for download off of GP. Microsoft must approach them with a number, the developer projects what they think they’ll make, and take Microsofts offer if they want something a bit safer then being out there with no guarantee. I bet smaller companies also look at things like Rocket League and see how well that “free” exposure served that game. And of course for 1st party stuff it’s just in their best interest given their current ranking in the console wars and what their future bets appear to be. But I bet any money in a parallel universe where MS are the top dog and they invent GP none of their first party stuff is on GP. It goes to show why they stopped making big press releases about how big they are and hiding their sales figures if they’re willing to cannibalise their whole 1st party output for GP. If they’re looking at the numbers and their whole potential profit of all their 1st party line up is on par with the profitability potential of GP then...yikes. No wonder they want this gen to end as soon as possible, are teaming up with Sony to save on R&D and want everyone subscribed full time But what gets on GP, yeah, I bet they approach every deal with set contracts but the numbers on those contracts get the shit negotiated out of them

    I liked that as a kid, too, but I don’t think I’ve seen it since before 2000 It did always make me laugh though with that scene where the helicopter is following Godzilla through New York and they momentarily lose him like “Where did he go?” And then Godzilla pops out of a building 🤣 So many questions!

    I don’t know where it’s coming from but I’m getting really excited for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. I might even rent the one from 2014 again. I know people didn’t like it but I thought it was cool
