  1. I hope they get Tara Strong to play Harley Quinn. Warner Bros Animation's choice to replace Arleen Sorkin with Melissa Rauch instead of Tara Strong in Harley Quinn & Batman wasn't a good decision. Tara's not an exact duplication of the original voice, but it's really close. Melissa Rauch isn't even near to being close, and her interpretation of Harley's accent was way too thick and got annoying really quickly.

    I'm playing through Super Mario Odyssey now. It's awesome. It's got a little bit of every Mario game before it, and the new stuff is awesome. Taking control of enemies is so much fun, and the speed flower is neat. I hope this game gets a sequel.
  3. The Double Fine Group Of Doubly Fine Writings

    I agree. Actually I feel this way about every genre. For instance, I could tell you more about what happened to the characters in a Monk episode than the mystery, or more about the characters in Agents of Shield than what villain they had to fight.
  4. I hope it doesn't fail, since Flashpoint is one of my favorite DC stories. I really loved the animated version of it, and I'm looking forward to the live action adaptation.
  5. The founders are no longer part of the active management. Troy Molander left way back in 2007, Kevin Bruner stepped down in March of this year, and Dan Connors temporarily stepped up from the board of directors to take the role of CEO again, then Dan Connors stepped down in September. Out of the original crew that was there from the very beginning, from Telltale Texas Hold'em onward, only Jonathan Sgro, Randy Tudor, and Kim Lyons are still there.
  6. The Double Fine Group Of Doubly Fine Writings

    I've got an idea in my head for a Super Mario USA 2 (backronym: Super Mario Ultimate Subcon Adventure 2).
  7. They could always have a different division of Disney distribute a Blade film, if they didn't want it to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like they did with Big Hero 6.
  8. I haven't seen Thor: Ragnarok, but I'm looking forward to watching it. I never liked Thor as a character in the comics, but I like the films so far. I'm one of the few that actually liked Thor: The Dark World better than the original Thor. As I alluded to above, I also liked Iron Fist, although I watched it at a point when I could watch Defenders immediately afterward, which helped make me like Iron Fist a lot more since the A plot of Defenders is basically Iron Fist Season One Part II. It managed to explain the immortal Iron Fist a lot better, revealed more of what happened to the mystical city of K'un-L'un after Danny left, and revealed why the Hand was able to bring people back to life. Jessica Jones was my favorite character in The Defenders. How can you not like her sarcastic comments aimed at Matt Murdock, and especially Danny Rand? Plus, the elevator scene was awesome. It shows she's even more powerful than she lets on, and really makes me excited for Jessica Jones Season Two. But, thinking about it, the B plot of The Defenders was basically Daredevil Season Two Part II. Out of the four of them, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage really needed the least explanations out of all of the shows, so it makes sense that the plot would focus mostly on Danny and Matt. Luke Cage's origins were well laid out in the first season of his show. Basically all that was left on a cliffhanger in that season was how Luke would get out of prison, which isn't really even a big deal, wasn't at all unexpected when it happened in Luke Cage's show, and was resolved in less than five minutes in The Defenders. We don't know a lot about Jessica before Kilgrave, and know nothing about how she got her powers, but that's more suited to be shown in Jessica Jones Season Two because it likely has nothing, or at least very little, to do with The Hand. I also finally watched the first episode of Inhumans finally, since as I said above I was avoiding it due to all the bad press it got. The special effects of Lockjaw and Medusa are amazing, and the storyline isn't even almost as bad as people said it was. If I actually did watch that when it was in IMAX theatres, I wouldn't have been disappointed at all.

    John Lithgow is an awesome guy too. If any of the guys listed above end up in a scandal where they turn out to be abusive, I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
  10. hey guys post more im bored

    NeoGAF is back up, but the atmosphere of the forum already feels a lot different from what it was.
  11. I've been kind of turned off by bad reviews that Inhumans has been getting... though Iron Fist was also bashed just as much, and while it definitely wasn't the best Marvel Netflix show, it wasn't as bad as people were claiming it was (plus it was helped a lot by The Defenders, which fleshed out a lot more about the Iron Fist mythology and the character of Danny Rand). I'll likely give it a shot once the season is over and I can binge watch all the episodes.
  12. It gets a lot better around the time you start getting Freedom Pals members to join you, especially once you team up to break out an informant. That whole scene, and all of the villains that you fight in that area are comedy gold.
  13. hey guys post more im bored

    Jeez. That really stinks. And here I was thinking that I wasn't on there for very long when I just got validated in August.
  14. I'm playing South Park: The Fractured But Whole I like it more than Stick of Truth, which I loved. I like the new combat system, crafting of items, collecting super suits, the different super classes, ability slots, and the ability to use the powers of your teammates to solve puzzles in the game world to unlock new areas or get new loot. I also like how you can choose to be male, female, or other - and how you can choose to be male, female, other, transgender, gay, bi-sexual, asexual, and pretty much anything else, and how the game incorporates those choices into the gameplay and dialog. I actually laughed out loud when the rednecks came to beat my team up when I chose a non-gender conformist character.
  15. hey guys post more im bored

    That should be awesome. I'd love to meet The Chin himself. Be sure to let us know how it goes!
  16. The Humble IGN Merger

    Yep. It's unlikely to change the way Humble Bundles are created and games are sold in the Humble Store, but it's definitely a public relations nightmare for the company.
  17. On the moderation side, it's super awesome to have linear comments again. Moderating threaded posts was a nightmare, since if you flagged the first post in a thread, every single post under that thread would be removed from view too. Between the forum changeover in 2013 and some point into 2016 I was feeling like I didn't want to be a moderator over there anymore, but the web team and community team they have now is super awesome, and they take moderator and user input into consideration. It really feels like 2012 again over there again in terms of staff to moderator and staff to user involvement. It's awesome stuff. I'm glad I stuck through it.
  18. Europa

    Thebe is a far more interesting moon anyway.
  19. Coincidently I just received your postcard for The Farrier today. While I'm here, I figured I'd share an oldie of mine: LASER: Little Arcade System Emulator Releases. It's an emulator for Midway's 8080 games. It started off as a Space invaders emulator called Sinvader, created by Mike Green. I got permission to expand it to learn programming, and ended up supporting many other games using the Midway 8080 chipset. LASER was first released in 2000 for DOS, but a coder named Steven Harris updated it to run on SDL instead of Allegro, and development shifted to Windows. I updated it in 2013 to support newer computers and to update the game detection to use the current MAME rom sets. The source code is released under the GNU Public Licence Version 2.
  20. Triple D'oh! I meant to post in this thread when @Cheeseness nudged me towards it back in March, but I became sidetracked. I meant to release Doug's Moai Adventure under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license back when I started implementing it in Amnesia Adventure. But, again I got sidetracked. As I mentioned above, Doug, Merlin, and Marvin were already released under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license. However, the Doug's Moai Adventure game was not. That's all fixed now, as I updated the license info for Doug's Moai Adventure. So now, it's licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution license. So that should make it play nice with Amnesia Adventure, and anything else anyone wants to use it in.
  21. Awesome, @Kewl Lemon! Thanks for contributing. It's hard to read the text though, any chance you can post what the panels say? Edit: I googled the scenes in question and I was able to determine what the text says. I edited the strip to make it easier to read. Oh, and don't worry about the legalese. I got permission to use the Costume Quest characters for this strip and just wanted to make it clear that they are exempt from the share-alike license used in this comic.
  22. There's two things I wanted to do this year. I love the Torpedo Rock collaborative comic on the Telltale forums and I've been wanting to start something similar, and I'm a big supporter of the public domain, so I'm going to use this post to do both. Since the United States public domain laws prevent works from going into the public domain for the forseeable future, I wanted to release one of my own creations in support of the public domain. But, due to differing public domain laws in different countries (a work that is in the public domain may not necessarily be in the public domain in others), I decided to use a more binding license instead. Ever since I first created Doug the Ogre he has been one of my favorite characters. He is also mostly a clean slate. The only thing ever said in the Jenni comic is that he's not necessarily good or evil, just "mostly good" (and that he's the size of an average human, whereas the other ogres are much bigger). Other than that, he's completely free to mold as anyone sees fit. So, feel free to do so. Doug the Ogre is now released for all under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license. And , since I used her in the first Doug the Ogre comic, I'm also releasing Doug's mother for all under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license as well. I'm releasing the Doug The Ogre comic itself under the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 4.0 license, so you can do whatever you want with it, commercial or non-commercial, but everything you create based on it must be licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 4.0 license too (that way all pages of the comic that are made are covered under the same license). So, with all that said and done, here's the first Doug the Ogre comic. Feel free to continue it as you see fit in your own style.
