The thing is they don't care about the eyeballs that have downloaded it, or the people who have DVR'd it (well, at least they mostly don't care in the latter case. They give zero shits about the first bit though), and they don't know how to properly capitalize on those models. Ergo, the only ones they care about are… » 10/25/14 6:47pm Yesterday 6:47pm

In my experience, horror RPGs are more fun because of the way they subvert the most common RPG tropes and tactics (for example, in most RPGs, making spot checks and deep investigation is always the right answer. In Call of Cthulu that succeeding a spot check or investigation can actually HURT you. The classic 'You see… » 10/24/14 5:47pm Yesterday 5:47pm

That's also the name of a prominent youtuber, which was why he chose it. (And believe me, trying to get someone to jump the gun and accuse said youtuber falsely is the kind of stupid shit some GGers try). Unless you're the same guy, which... I doubt, because he's pretty pro-GG.

Also the doxxing isn't fake. It… » 10/23/14 2:10pm Thursday 2:10pm

Simple answer: He doesn't.

Because that's not Ultron. Ultron's not that robot. He's a network. We see multiple Ultron drones in later shot—and I bet they're all Ultron. My completely wild speculation is that he's a controlling AI built by Stark at the behest of somebody (maybe Fury on the down low?) that had something… » 10/23/14 4:36am Thursday 4:36am

Doubly so because of the dynamic between the brother's, which actually went back and explained, without telling, that Picard's family life was defined by trauma. Hell, from scene 1 we're expected to just be like 'Wow, Picard's brother is a jerk'—only to realize that we're not necessarily seeing just a monster, but a… » 10/20/14 3:18pm Monday 3:18pm

Eh, the other way you could look at it is instead of presenting it as 'Oh my god they might KILL COBBLEPOT!" it's like 'This is the kind of treatment Cobblepot endured in his rise to infamy, where he learned that the only way to get ahead was to be more vicious then your opponents—and also if you want to take somebody… » 10/20/14 12:08pm Monday 12:08pm

The thing is, it's not exactly like Iron Man 3 followed the plot of Extremis even remotely closely, and I'm pretty damn sure Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to play out anything like the Age of Ultron arc, so... why is the assumption that Civil War will be all THAT related to the (absolutely horrible) arc in the… » 10/14/14 3:40pm 10/14/14 3:40pm

There is a serious problem at cons, but it has nothing to do with cosplayers and everything to do with more and more people eyeing it as a 'serious business opportunity.' and more more big companies are throwing out all the stops to try and get a few of those sweet sweet geek dollars.

You're an artist who feels like… » 9/25/14 3:17pm 9/25/14 3:17pm

Yeah that was a really bad choice. We would have gotten the same information if they had just cut off the dialogue and had them staring at the viewscreen of Fitz. But I suspect the reason why is because they're playing off the assumption that not everyone watching finished season 1, or even knows what the hell is… » 9/24/14 1:55am 9/24/14 1:55am

That honestly depends on your opinion of Borderlands thus far.

Frankly I doubt it. Solo play in Borderlands is fairly dull, and the pre-sequel is just more of it. It's built on the same foundation of the first two games, for better or worse (hence why why it's not strictly an XB1/PS4 title, as it can almost be thought… » 9/22/14 9:51pm 9/22/14 9:51pm

Honest question though: If you asked anyone in any leadership position in any environment how much their followers knew about the things you were in charge of, how many would say 'Oh yeah, they know their stuff'? I mean, I'm sure some would (the good ones, who make a point to inform them) but by and large leadership… » 9/18/14 7:25pm 9/18/14 7:25pm

It's actually the history that makes that episode so fucking jarring for me. And it's not just a rough patch: the relationship is over for a while (one ep, although some time passed off camera. )There are parts overall of Amy and Roy I really like the whiplash induced by that episode is just awful. » 9/14/14 1:01am 9/14/14 1:01am

Anyone here play Magic: The Gathering?

My friends are apparently getting into Magic: The Gathering and want to turn weekly play into a thing. Which means I'm doing it too. I'm familiar with the rules of Magic and CCGs and general but I have no cards from previous editions and I have not played since Sera Angels and Shivan dragons were OMFG AMAZING cards.
