Re: Star Wars Shelds

What can we take from the season 3 finale of Rebels, in which Ezra and several Mandalorians perform a boarding action on the Interdictor? They merrily run across it's hull, as well as fly around it. Where does this fit into it? Rear echelon Interdictor, shields might be down because it wasn't expec...

SUPER PICATINNYS!

We do see the whole Marine kitting process in the ABOUT DAMN TIME trailer with Finley. A combination of fabricators, cryo, steroid and meth injectors and hydraulic-actuated sewing machines and solderings and such!

Re: EVOLUTION COMPLETE! - musings on StarCraft stuff

As for Marine armor, it seems reasonable that a literal redneck space confederacy might not have all that uniform of equipment and standards, just whatever each local place can produce or has decided to produce. Uh huh and futuretech might make it so that all these ramshackle gears are somehow univ...

Re: So apparently superheroes are racist

It goes both ways. The audience once upon a time preferred crap, but the audiences changed... unfortunately the turnover rate for creators is different, so while there's a bustling scene of new and inclusive creators, the Old Guard's still there. Stratification issues, etc. And we know audiences, th...

Re: EVOLUTION COMPLETE! - musings on StarCraft stuff

The Protoss seemed like they might have patrolled a large Empire, but never populated it all that much. Yeah, there were mentions in SC2 that their vaster empire contracted - perhaps in part due to the schism that caused the Dark Templar, or perhaps due to the Protoss abandoning expansionism and de...

Re: Old SF TV Show - Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles

IIRC James Cameron once stated that Terminators are not programmed nor designed to fight one another (the T-X being the exception). If you look at the fights between the T-800 and T-1000 in T2 you can see them learning over the course of the film- at first the two try to shoot each other with small...

We don't know if that's something the newer Ts can't do. I mean, Vic was also capable of secks and I think like Danny McBride in This is the End he could also shed tears from the tip of his penis (for the sake of deceiving the wife...). And he had nowhere near her combat capability as she took him ...

Re: EVOLUTION COMPLETE! - musings on StarCraft stuff

StarCraft is rather interesting to delve into. The steroidization of zerg can be attributed out-of-universe by Samewise's art style shaping the direction the 3d modelers went in. In universe I feel it has more military purposes. Pre-terran/protoss contact zerg were likely more akin to locusts, find...

Was she more advanced though? I don't recall anything about her that really screamed more advanced. I think it was something to be developed later on in the plot. It was alluded to that she was Future John Connor's most trusted aide, to the dismay of a lot of seasoned Resistance fighters and person...

Re: So apparently superheroes are racist

It would be more productive to talk about the source and consumers of the power trip mythologies (that can be appropriated by fascism)... namely, in this case, the comic book nerds that DO have a huge chunk of reactionary redpill/MRA asshole demographics.

Re: So apparently superheroes are racist

If the Polynesians became a hegemony then there's a possibility they would fascist-ify their mythic figures.

Like how Hercules is the Chris Benoit of Greek mythology.

Out.

It'll mess up the org's dynamics with the rest of the world. So how does this fit ...

Re: EVOLUTION COMPLETE! - musings on StarCraft stuff

Did the Protoss occupy worlds beyond Aiur? We know that there WAS a larger Protoss empire... (TO BE CONTINUED) And we know it contracted, due to de-militarization, due to the civil war from the Dark Templar schism, etc. We know that the Protoss by the "current" time had a pseudo-protector...

One of the noticeable things about StarCraft 2 aesthetic - while I haven't played Heart of the Swarm or Legacy of the Void nonetheless you can still see it - is how... hulked out everything is.

I had a response that somehow disappeared! Well, Superheroes is about celebrating the notion of individuality to an extent. It's about one person being able to make a difference. They aren't exactly the most communists archetypes around, but that does not make them fascists by any means. This notion...

Re: So apparently superheroes are racist

The emergence of the far more perfect and less "fascistic" or at least less one-dimensional or more multi-dimensional figures like Spiderman, Professor X, Magneto, etc. are precisely because the genre reinvents itself by examining, criticizing, deconstructing and reconstructing its old roo...
