  1. You can certainly play like that in DS 2 and 3 if you use the right weapons, not so much in 1. But I get ya. BB's combat is preferable to me. Level design? Outside of Central Yarhnam there isn't really much that impressed me however with there being some absolute shitters like Brygenwerth and the Lecture Building. However the general atmosphere for me is where Bloodborne takes the cake.

    Except no he didn't go fully evil when he killed Han because he purposely didn't shoot and kill his Mom. Did you even watch TLJ?
  3. Kind of weird in the sense that the "jokes" and such were there and in the open years before he was hired for GotG 1. So Disney should have known about them previously.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Spoilers

    Hope absolutely could have been given an arc but that's not the choice the writers made. Scott doesn't have a particularly strong arc (as you noted it's repetitive) or anything but it's more than she has got and that is a shame. As I said earlier, I don't think it is a bad movie but it certainly isn't a good one either.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Spoilers

    Probably because while it's not much, Scott has a character arc, whilst Hope does not. Sad considering as you say its a movie ostensibly about her but true.
  7. The conditional pick that is this year which they will almost assuredly have their pick be in the mid to high 20's? And if they bottom out instead turns into two second round picks? The Raps already have a bunch of young talent, they weren't planning on getting a good pick till 2020 anyways.
  8. I'm sorry but why do you think Toronto get the worse side of it? I'm kind of salivating over a Wright-Kawhi-OG-Green-Siakam lineup defensively. My word, the switches.
  9. He's not going to forfeit his salary which is what would happen in that scenario lol. I'm sure he'll make it clear if he wants out but they won't trade him yet. Why? Because the Lakers have a new GM who likes making forced drastic trades in the middle of a season if things aren't going the way he likes them to go. If the Lakers aren't doing particularly well LeBron will force them to try and trade for Kawhi.
  10. Yep. Just like he got PG this year as you said he would. Win-Win for the Raps. I like DeRozan but he isn't good enough to win and getting a clear upgrade over him is delightful. If he leaves after one year, OH No! They rebuild a year earlier and have two massive trade contracts to deal with. Love it. I haven't seen who else is in it but honestly doesn't really matter, our young guys are solid but not great. If Masai can somehow get Pop to take Norm Powell off our hands, even better.
  11. I wish I liked DS3 as much as the other 2 and Bloodborne but it's just not the case. It's just missing IT. It of course being the hard thing to define. DS3 has the best gameplay of the Dark Souls's but everything else just seems to be sort of fan-fictiony. I understand people don't like DS2 for its gameplay and some for the plot, but to me it stands out because of how nihillistic and depressing the world is. Just different from most other games. But it is something that makes it stand apart. DS3 is just kind of there, trying to piggy back off DS1 but failing at everything. I wish I liked it more than I do.
  12. Are you trying to imply Age of Mythology copied Warcraft 3 since it came out after it with that last sentence? Which would be baffling since they came out 3 months apart and they wouldn't have been able to copy anything of value in that short of time.

    Except there is a problem with the way the did it, it was stupid. You think "surprise" is better than intelligent writing? Regardless the surprise wasn't that people died in the mid credits scene but that everybody but Scott died.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Spoilers

    Oh I'm not saying why they weren't asked to help or whatever, just that they seemed to be oblivious. Like if I'm a marginal superhero maybe I don't go to Wakanda or whatever but I ask the FBI what I can do to help say cleanup in New York. etc.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Spoilers

    I thought it was ok. Not great, not terrible. Had some funny bits (mostly involving Michael Peña) but mostly just ok. Still can't figure out how they think an ant with wings can fly as fast as a car but whatever. My only real problem is the credits scene. Like do these characters not watch the news or read the internet? They are totally oblivious to what is going on in Wakanda?

    Logic is making up shit with flight simulators? Right. Keep taking those drugs chum. Hilariously hypocritical it is then.

    That's the point of the luck. Luke doesn't blow up the Death Star with skill. He essentially closes his eyes and shoots and the force makes it go in. Same thing with Anakin in Phantom Menace. That's the point. He doesn't make it go in, the force does. If for example instead of Rey doing the ridiculously complicated maneouvre(without a copilot) in order to get Finn's gun pointed directly at the tie fighter (with no previous piloting experience) she instead tried to do something steering-wise but the falcon stalls out and then ended up in the exact position needed for Finn to blast it because of Luck. That would be comparable to Luke and Anakin. Wert talks up Luke like he is the second coming of christ, instead he blindly shoots at death star surface (happens to take out a gun, kills one tie fighter that doesn't see him at all because it's focused on Biggs, almost gets killed by a tie, almost gets killed by vader, then fires a blind shot that happens to go in If you want to count his ESB experience he flies a snowspeeder inbetween legs and gets shot twice, with the second time making him crash. What an ace pilot. EDIT: I forgot Luke almost kills himself by flying too close to the Death Star as well. Well done Luke.

    He thinks that because it suits his argument. Read his previous post. He starts with "The contortions people go through to make Rey a Mary Sue" and then goes through contortions to try and prove she's not. It would be hilariously hypocritical if I wasn't sure he was posting it as a joke.

    The difference between how Rey is presented in comparison to Anakin and Luke is "Luck". Anakin and Luke have to rely on luck to do anything (See Luke randomnly just shooting shit on the Death Star which luckily blows up a cannon) wheres Rey is presented as being amazing based on skill and knowledge (see her knowing the Falcon better than Han). There is a significant difference. If Rey had instead been presented as just being lucky no one would care about her being awesome at everything because then it would be just like Luke and Anakin.

    Love em but their Kylo Ren videos are better. He reviews Force Awakens, Rogue One, Last Jedi, and Solo but the better ones are him playing for Honor with Bane and Optimus Prime. Just gold.

    I'd argue strongly the other way and I'm not that big a fan of Man of Steel.

    Didn't she release like 12 dinosaurs? Most of which were herbivores? Not exactly the end of the world.

    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    I only watched the first season of PoI and I took it as Nolan wanted to delve into what Lucius Fox threw away in Dark Knight Rises, turned Batman into just a fighter, turned Alfred into the Great Detective, turned Gordon into Taraji P. Henson, and made it a procedural. I wasn't a fan.
