    Speaking of Alita, apparently this happened: Half the time Christoph Walz looks excited to be talking to an anime girl, the other half of the time he looks like he is wondering what the hell happened in his life to get him to this point.

    I dunno, really. Probably not. But I haven't watched much of it, basically I just started looking into what the hell it was when Shadowverse had a promotional event. I'm happy that Kaguya Luna finally got that anime adaptation.

    There is no agreement whatsoever between the fansub names, official anime names, and official game names of the characters in Mysteria Friends. (Hell even the title was originally Manaria friends). Lou/Roux/Rue seems to have gotten it particularly bad. Still if you call Grea Glare or Heinlein Hainlain (or worse, Hainrain), you are a heretic.
  4. Heard someone describe "Country Roads" as a "really Texan sort of song".

      Still, "West Virginia" is pretty damn prominent in the lyrics.

      Raison d'être

      A lot of non-Americans think of America as California, New York, and Texas, so they probably just assumed West Virginia was merely a place in Texas along with the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah River. And you gotta admit "Country Roads" sounds more like Texas than California or New York.

      John Denver was from Colorado at that.

  5. The original always loses money. The copy might break even. It's the copy of the copy that makes the big money.

    Non-Magic CCGs

    Surely people play other CCGs than the big one? If so let's discuss them. Could be online or physical. Yu-Gi-Oh!, Hearthstone, Pokemon, Shadowverse, Hecatomb, Star Wars CCG, Star Wars TCG, Star Trek CCG, Force of Will, Wixoss, Call of Cthulhu LCG, Lord of the Rings CCG, Lord of the Rings TCG, Eternal Struggle, Rage, Legend of the Five Rings, Netrunner, Luck and Logic, Weiss Schwarz, Animayhem, Duel Masters, Gundam War, MS War, VS, Wars, Blood Wars, Battletech, Doomtown, Rumbling Spell Orchestra, GI Joe, My Little Pony CCG are all acceptable. I guess Dragon Dice is fine too, even though that doesn't use cards. But Magic: the Gathering is right out.

    Non-Magic CCGs

    Shadowverse just released some new cards. One is a 1/2 for one (standard aggro turn one play). Except that if you're going second you can drop it turn 4 as a 4/4, it will tutor two cards that cost 2 or less from your deck directly into play, and it gives all 1 cost creatures +1/+0 at the end of your turn, permanently (regardless of whether it is in play or not). Then it places another copy of itself in your deck. You're pretty much guaranteed 8 power for 4, on top of that nice continuous effect for a weenie deck.

    If I recall correctly, there was only one standard dog sprite in Fallout 1 and 2 (with some weird special event dogs on top of that). They are just being lore accurate.

    Is this the right half of loss?

    I mean game Bernkastel, clearly. Also on that topic, did the Umineko anime really end with the end of episode 4? I mean I get that it would be too much to animate the whole story all at once but man would that be an unsatisfying conclusion.

    TIAM: General Gaming edition

    I'm slowly starting to get the suspicion that Bernkastel might actually be a jerk.

    I constantly forget that Shadowverse thinks that "weenie" is a bad word that shouldn't be used in deck names.

    Magic The Gathering (TCG)

    You list colors so that the number of colors in between them is the smallest, reading WUBRG left to right, cycling back to white once you get to green. Look at literally any green and blue card or any red and white card. Coatl is 1GU, not 1UG. Lightning Helix is RW, not WR. Green blue decks are generally referred to by the abbreviation UG because of UG madness, though that deck in and of itself made a mistake in its name.

    Magic The Gathering (TCG)

    Green/blue players aren't even smart enough to realize that that combination of mana goes in the order GU not UG.

    ITT Post Virtual Youtubers

    Recently my Youtube recommended feed has started sending me recommendations for more and more obscure virtual youtubers. The more I click, the weirder stuff comes up later. So I thought it might be interesting to see how long we can keep a thread going where each post needs to have a video from a different virtual youtuber. With the opening post I suppose that I have to start with the most obvious example of all, Miss Kizuna AI: I'll leave the other obvious ones for other people though.

    Just heard an 8 bit remix of "Enter Enter Mission" in which the second verse was mixed together with Panzerlied, British Grenadiers, Funiculi Funicula, etc. Is there an actual version of the song that does that?

    No one's going to believe that a spy actually died. It's just a dead ringer feint.

    In which we post the randomest shit we find on YouTube.

    The subtext that was like a millimeter below the surface of every plague video is now just text text.

    I understand that Kadokawa was dead set on killing Kemono Friends and then parading around its corpse. But they could have at done animation at a level better than "sub-western MMD video."
  22. On the bright side, you managed to foil the Origami Killer.

    Star Citizen

    I mean, there's posts in this thread going up to 2016 and no one seems critical of the project through that point. I didn't want to be too harsh in case we still had some true believers. (Tehre are somehow still parts of the internet where the common consensus is that Star Citizen is going to come out and be awesome if we all just wait a little longer).
  24. The trouble with the Patriots is that they always try to walk it in.
  25. This is the fourth time in two days that I've been reminded that today is the Super Bowl. Somehow I was surprised every time.
