Every few years or so they bigger companies will reboot their universes, so it isn't impossible to get into at a later date. Like DC relatively recently reboot their entire universe and released their "Nu52" universe, so the last two years or so worth of storylines has been independent from the last 50~60 years before it. Sometimes they do it to boost sales, and sometimes they do it because a particular plot point becomes harder to keep "realistic." Like Iron Man, his original story was that he was hurt during Vietnam, which is hard to make work when he's perpetually 30ish years old, so they moved the timeline to the Iraq war. Captain America is pretty much the only one that can keep his original Punch **** storyline since he was frozen in time. They just move how long he was frozen.

Marvel and DC are the two biggest companies, but there are dozens of smaller studios that release books that aren't as expansive. I don't follow Image books nearly as closely, but I'm relatively sure their books don't really crossover as much or at all. On the other hand, IDW recently did a massive event where the Ghostbusters, GI Joe, Star Trek, and Transformers all took on a zombie apocalypse. That was kind of surreal* ...

You can always check out torrent sites for chronology. I do that once in a while. I'm going through Incredible Hulk right now. I tend to download new issues and then go to Midtown Comics to buy whichever books I enjoyed reading. I get to support books I like that way, and still don't really get lost in various intermingling storylines.

Are there problems of authors just incorporating events that should have never happened? or is this really a non-issue since everything gets reviewed by editors?

I don't think this case was an accident/mistake, but I guess what comes to my mind is Squirrel Girl who just defeats everyone in her path (as far as I understand it, anyway).

Stuff like Squirrel Girl don't happen too often, if at all, because there are ridiculous amounts of editors and writers to keep track of all the stories. Usually though, if a storyline is ridiculous enough it becomes kind of an in-joke like Squirrel Girl or all of Spider-Man's clones. Squirrel Girl is kind of an amusing case, because some writers don't like her so they'll think of ways to diminish her accomplishments. Like there's one storyline, a single frame really, where The Watcher (big head guy, witnesses everything in the universe) outright said that she defeated Thanos (cosmic super baddy, has a crush on Death), and in another book it has Thanos boasting about how he can make clones of himself that are so good that even the Watcher couldn't tell.

She's pretty much what comic books used to be. A super character who has ridiculous abilities that seems to manage to win against people she has no right to win against. The last thing I remember of her is she beat up Wolverine in hand-to-hand combat. He popped his claws, then got decimated by a herd of squirrels. You can't not like that. Basically, she's how Marvel makes fun of Batman.

Any guesses for how this situation with North Korea will play out?

Being in the US, I am not worried for my safety, but North Korea could still do something really stupid.

We'll probably see some big fireworks tomorrow/today on the founder's birthday... but still, despite them being an actual threat to some areas, it's very hard to take all of this seriously.

I wonder how this event is being perceived in areas closer such as Japan or South Korea.

I think South Korea is perceiving this as a real and present thread. Japan however probably aren't worried.

Comes back to the China thing. China and Japan are huge trading partners. China won't let NK f*ck with Japan if it poses a risk to their own economy.

I have an HDD, it was given to me by someone who I can no longer contact. I want to reformat the drive.

The problem is that Ubuntu thinks the drive does not exist and Windows says it's an unknown device (cannot install drivers).
Currently, the drive is in an external enclosure, connected by USB, but I can (and have tried) SATA to only the same effect.

How do I go about reformatting the drive?

Good. DRM only hurts honest gamers and the business itself. People that are going to bootleg are either gonna find ways around it or not play at all, not decide to start paying.

I still haven't played Witcher 2. Must get on that ... though I still have Bioshock: Infinite to start. Waiting on my new purdy monitor before that.

Ugh. Too many games, not enough time.

Marvel Heroes looks interesting. Free to play. I might look into that, depending how the cash shop works. If it's to unlock characters, I probably won't play. If it's for costumes, I'll consider it.

So I've started reading Dune (finally!), and though I'm only 200 pages in, I feel like this could make an amazing TV show if they actually did it right. It needs a reboot! GRITTY REBOOT! GET THE GUYS FROM GAME OF THRONESSSS.

Which is also totally awesome right now.

SciFi did a pretty good miniseries actually. It's like six hours long? I have it on DVD somewhere...

The acting can be a little amateur, but it is dead on to the book.

Also note my referencing their old name 'SciFi', meaning 'back when they were good'.

The spinoffs that get into Children of Dune and whatnot were their top rated series ever.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Herbert's_Dune

Welcome to my early teenage years (I read Dune in fourth grade... meaning it took the entirety of fourth grade).

I might give it a go after I finish the books. From the trailer it looks a little dated though. SFX in 2000 were ... hmm. Yeah.

the scifi dune series wasn't too bad. i dunno WTF the obsession is with making the sarduakar look like **** though. they were supposed to be the most badass of the badass, and they run around in big floppy frenchie hats. very sad. aside from that it's pretty decent. seconding the children of dune recommendation as well.

The miniseries does have some cheesy visuals, but as everyone has said, it was pretty good.

Loved Children of Dune though. Highly recommended.

So does Jurassic park, by a decade, and I don't complain about that movie!


...I just figured it was appeared that way because it a a SciFi miniseries, the station never exactly had a very big budget for a 2 hour movie, much less a 4.5 hour one.

Does anyone remember that 90's Transformers spin-off, 'Beast Wars'? I sampled it! Wow!

The animation is hilarious to look at these days, but I've gotta say they did a pretty good job considering the state of CGI back then.

...I tried Scarlet Blade just because we all know the only reason for an MMO is naked women Smiley: inlove


As much as it pains me to mention since it almost killed FFXI... FFXIV is shaping up to be pretty good. Also keeping an eye out for The Elders Scrolls and Wildstar, but they're still in beta. TES sounds more interesting now that I know they're trying to still keep the open aspect of the single player games. I'm not sure if it will work since GW2 sort of did this and failed did not succeed, but there are a wide range of reasons for that.

After playing around with various MMOs, both free and subscription, I'm finding that the F2P model is definitely not a good future for the genre. This seems to shift the focus away from quality content to gimmicky events. I guess it does give players to play free games, but what's the point if it's not a quality experience?

nah, i'm trying to stay away this time, for awhile at least. tired GW2, couldn't stand it for more than a day though it was cool at first. really liked TERA but my machine can't really hand it well (or any modern game, really. thing needs an upgrade badly). right now i just have too much going on w/ work and outside projects to deal with an MMO. i was able to stay gone for 11 months this last time and while i was having fun with FF, there are only so many hours in the day.

I was interested in ARR until I found out that it won't have Dark Knight (at launch at least). ESO looks like something I'll have to at least try. All of the previews I've read have been fairly positive. They were written after only a couple hours of play time though, so who knows if it'll hold up to a longer session.

Que?

TESO had me super excited until the reveal that factions are set in stone and races cannot intermingle. Ever. That just bummed me out completely. I have around 3-6 friends IRL who wanna play this game and I know for certain we don't all wanna be one of three races, but I don't wanna have to be in the situation where we all have to like, I don't know, vote to pick a specific faction that we all want to play in because that will undoubtedly result in several people being dissapointed. Not to mention how sucky it is that you can only visit the rest of the world once you reach max level and even then it's an adjusted world built specifically for you and your fellow max-level faction buddies. No meeting the actual races that live there. Nope. They're off in some other instance ... for some reason.

I just don't understand why a game that has traditionally been all about the multi-culturalness of the world has suddenly become a three-faction, PvP focused MMO. I would have been completely cool with it if these factions were optional, like, I don't know, Skyrim? Maybe encourage people to stay within their races prominent faction and make slight storyline changes if you play as an opposing race but straight up locking these factions apart? It saddens me.

Why can't MMO's just be new versions of FFXI? *humph*

I miss 75-cap FFXI Smiley: frown

And that makes it seem less interesting. I was mainly thinking of how "classes" work, but I haven't done a ton of research into the game.

So things just keep getting worse for Microsoft...

First, their big Xbone announcement only showed that no one knows what is going on with the system or how it works.

These past few days, they have cancelled their post-E3 conference and are now cancelling 1-on-1 interviews.

There's a rumor how the designers of the Xbone overstretched themselves, and will need to downclock the hardware.
In addition, there's been a bunch of nasty rumors about Microsoft conducting shady business and showing off fake demonstrations, but I have no clue how legitimate these could be.

one of three races
They streamline the Elf and Humans into one race now? Lame. Probably no more lizards either, which is fine because they sucked.


One of three races per faction. There are three factions. The Ebon Heart Pact will have the Nords, Dunmer, and Argonians. The Aldmeri Dominion will have the Altmer, Bosmer, and Khajit. The Daggerfall Covenant will have the Bretons, Orcs, and Redguard. Imperials will be in the game, but as NPCs only.

Not to mention the thing is an Orwellian nightmare of constant surveillance.

And the ridiculousness that is the-internet-must-always-be-on. Because gamers LOVED Diablo 3 forcing you to have a connection to play single player? And Sim City. Right?

Also this doesn't really affect you Americans so much but internet in Australia is absolutely **** Lag will plague plenty of potential users, if anyone is idiotic enough to get an Xbone (I like that portmanteau!).
