      Thanks to some hard work from @Emblazon, the themes should all be functioning as expected again, with some enhancements/cleanups that he's put in. Please let us know if you spot anything that still seems to be amiss so that we can take care of it.

    HAHAHA, OMG! Someone LITERALLY predicted this this morning:
  3. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    You see it whenever something transitions from an insular fanbase to becoming mainstream... I know a LOT of lifelong Marvel comics fans who resent the MCCU for the same reason. They don't like the fact that a whole generation of fans will come to know the characters through their movie incarnations and not the comics an it colors their opinions. My Facebook is FULL of folks like this .
  4. The art looks sort of like Ori, but the gameplay looks very, very different.
  5. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    I don't really care, and I don't see others here caring, though. It's also not a wide gap. The show at its peak is seen by around 30-35 million people, it seems. The books have sold 60 million (so say, 12 million apiece). Many of that is overlapping, as well. There's a good mix of the culture out there. They are two different stories at this point, anyway, so it's fine for one to enjoy one version and not the other.
  6. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    I don't know what to say. I haven't mentioned a thing about teleporting or ravens. I think there's a lot to say that the show's priorities have changed. I know others feel the same way, some in this thread. Maybe we're all wrong, but people like TwinIon and CitizenVectron are smart, measured posters generally speaking, and I often respect what they have to say. The fact all three of us are in agreement means something's up, to me at least. You can choose not to agree, but I do think there is evidence to the contrary.

    THE MORON ACTUALLY DID IT "DON'T LOOK!" they cried, to the President. But it was too late. The President had already looked.
  8. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    For you. I don't begrudge that you are enjoying the show and ignoring some of the holes. As others here have said, that is required to some extent with all shows. But the holes have become more glaring as they've had to make up plot on their own, especially with the time and travel skips.
  9. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    The frustration with the show as the pop culture definitive version by many book readers is clear, even if you don't personally feel that way. It's not like this is limited to Thrones either.
  10. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    The peaks aren't the problem, it's the missing detail between them. Many people here have been clear on this. No one is complaining about action or set pieces on their own, it's that as the show has gone past the books, they've spent more and more time on them and less and less on plot and detail moments. Some of that is unavoidable as you approach a climax to a story. But some is that they are skipping huge periods of time in the show now, which was only sparingly done early on.
  11. Bandai is out for Capcom's blood.

    Y'know. Ever since this post, I can't tell you how many hours I have put into this game. I finished the story mode and it inspired me to get me back into the game but it was weird how. I've used a joy stick for years since I won it from Gamepro when SF4 released. The story mode difficulty had SPIKED when you have to fight Bison with Nash. I don't use Nash and the fact that I hadn't have to use Nash in addition to his move input being changed from previous game, I couldn't beat Bison. I then went from the joystick back to the controller. In that instance, I beat Bison but the gameplay felt different. This overwhelming sense of comfort and better reflexes came back to me that I haven't had in years. I like the stick cause it gives me the arcade feel but the controller gives me this sense of security that I had on the PS1, PS2, and PS3 prior to the stick, When I was younger I always preferred the controller but could easily translate the muscle memory to the stick. I figured out since the tournament stick I have tends to shift when I hold it, it unfortunately ruins my reactions and input. The controller doesn't do that. I have a whole new sense of rejuvenation for this game and it also got my son into it when he saw my renewed enthusiasm. Do I still wish the game had more single player mode? ABSOLUTELY but I don't mind where the game is now. I love competing online. I wish that there was separation of bronze fighters and super bronze fighter though. I'm in the bronze category and every time I get a some encouragement and consecutive wins, I face a super bronze that just humbles my ass. I wish I had the time to put the time into this game like I was able to do before being an adult cause I remember the time I put into the Street Fighter games growing up but damn......I am having fun on this game.
  12. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    All due respect, but I disagree and no amount of articles you can link to saying the same thing is gonna change my opinion. I have my issues with the show... very few shows are perfect... but NONE of my issues have been raised by anyone here (why the Night King doesn't have Archers, why he didn't start flinging Ice spears at the group? How Jon was able to miraculously find his way back up through that hole in the ice after falling through it... etc.) People here are focusing on Ravens and shit. I don't dwell on any of that shit because it DOESN'T MATTER. When characters start behaving in a way that doesn't ring true to me, then we can talk but I haven't seen any big character inconsistencies myself... YET. You wanna see me go ham on a poorly written show (Which GOT DEFINITELY isn't) check some of my Walking Dead posts Not even CLOSE
  13. You guys are cute, they're likely forced to work whether they get paid or not, and probably considered essential personnel so couldn't strike if they wanted either, if they're union anyways.
  14. Destiny 2: PC open beta trailer

    I wish I had the willpower to hold out for the PC release of the game, but I cant do it. Add to it the exclusive content on the PS4 version and the fact I sunk 500+ hrs into D1 on PS4... that is where Im playing 2. I wish I could play across both platforms, I would probably double dip.
  15. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    I've never seen this, I think you are projecting a bit, here. Actually, I don't see a lot of people do this. Most die-hard book readers acknowledge that book 4 was a slog, and book 5 was slow until the last 1/3. Instead, I see die-hard book readers praising the story and how it's constructed. The same with LOTR, which is a horribly-dull written book, but has a great story. Tolkein uses 4 pages to describe a mountain, and Martin uses 4 pages to describe food. But the story is what is so great. Martin is unmatched in any genre, I think, by the level of detail he has put into the plot and how it ties together, including all of the prophecies and hints.
  16. Panic in street as Moon eats Sun

    Seriously, that was fucking incredible. It got dark QUICK. Nighttime bugs and animals started making their noises. Traffic stopped. Then, the light went away and all the streetlights came on. A black circle with white gleams around it hung in the sky and stayed there for like 2 minutes. That's something I will not forget.
  17. Panic in street as Moon eats Sun

    I got one picture of it with my phone when there was just enough cloud cover to not cause massive glare, and yeah, it looked like it was going to storm but bright blue sky, we were in a 70-80% area. Working in a garage we had a bunch of welding helmets we could use, we're supposed to get a much better view in 2024 in my area.
  18. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    I don't buy the idea that the show all of the sudden has become about set pieces and big moments. Like, guys, we've known the penultimate episode of each season has the really big wow moment for years now. The most talked about things in the shows are moments like Ned's beheading, the Red Wedding, the Mountain/Oberyn, Hardhome, The Battle of the Bastards, etc., etc.. It's fine if you don't like what the show has become, but it's not broken.

    He probably sells fake glasses
  20. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    I didn't watch the coming up, but that soon, huh? I would think Tyrion seems to suck pretty badly at his job
  21. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    I never said I agree with everything the article states, just that there is a lot of creedence to the argument that the show has dropped the ball this season in a number of ways (but not all ways). The lukewarm review of the episode on AV Club also indicates this. http://www.avclub.com/tvclub/game-changing-thrones-spectacle-buckles-under-pres-259689
  22. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    That article is terribly written and based on opinion and conjecture. You REALLY don't think that The Night King is going to get one of those Dragons in the books? That that is one of GRRM's land marks on that he laid out for the showrunners? People in this thread @Spork3245 for examples, correctly saw that as a possibility and an Ice Dragon has been theorized for a LONG time by fans of the books. Nothing about The Night King felt forced or out of placed or " the writers introducing a software patch to fix an overpowered character" as that article puts it. And while I myself had problems with the Arya/Sansa thing, I have to see how that plays out before I render a final judgement. If Arya and Sansa TRULY turn on each other then yeah, that might seem like a bit much, but if the end up joining forces and out-Littlefingering Littlefinger, then it will be a satisfying outcome for me. These "GOT season X has problems" articles have been prevalent since season four or so... most are clickbait and aren't much better than the discussions we have on these boards. is the show perfect? No and it's going to move at a RAPID pace as they only have seven episodes to wrap this thing up. But I have to say, I'm really impressed by this season which has given us FIVE very good episodes and one "okay" one so far. I'm all for critiquing... but nitpicking dumb logistical shit like Raven speed and travel time (which this article ALSO does) is just a waste of everyone's time. Either you buy it or you don't.
  23. A Storm of Spoilers - Game of Thrones: Season 7

    I've thought that may happen as well, possibly next week.
  24. also It's not like mentally unstable people have easy access to firearms
