Exclamation The Man In The High Castle
Posted by: taco - 30-05-2019, 10:57 PM - Forum: Music/Movies/Books/TV shows - Replies (1)

Hey has anyone watched The Man In The High Castle ? I recently finished season 1 and maybe because it's not based off of a book that I've read to death and fallen in love with, but I actually enjoy watching this tv show (it's been a while!).

The aesthetic is great, many of the characters don't really feel that original but they're fun, Hitler is alive, isn't the bad guy??

  DEATH STRANDING RELEASE DATE REVEAL TRAILER GET HYPE
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 30-05-2019, 08:18 AM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (4)



Quote:What is Death Stranding?
From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid) comes an all-new, genre-defying open world action adventure for PS4, starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner.

In the near future, mysterious explosions have rocked the globe, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With otherworldly creatures plaguing the landscape, and mass extinction imminent, it’s up to Sam Porter Bridges to travel across the ravaged wasteland and save humanity from impending annihilation.

Face unique challenges
Arm yourself and take aim at a variety of objectives in your mission to reunite a broken nation, while balancing under the weight of your cargo as you travel. Protect your supplies from wild bandits, and stay safe from the terrifying Beached Things… or face failing those who depend on you.

Death is not the end
There is no traditional ‘game over’ state in Death Stranding. Lose your life during combat and you’ll find yourself in an upside-down realm, searching for a way back to the living. Choose your combat methods carefully, as killing your foe is almost never the solution – and every death carries a consequence

Assist other players
Help other travellers without ever crossing paths via asynchronous online gameplay. Send supplies, share safe houses and walk in the footsteps of fellow couriers to reunite civilisation.

Take my money this is going to be a great time. Looks like there's some World War 2 and Vietnam in there. Going to be great.

Incredible trailer. He delivers as usual.

  Catch-22 [spoilers]
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 27-05-2019, 08:49 PM - Forum: Music/Movies/Books/TV shows - Replies (35)

Based on the popular book from the 60s, this new show just came out last week with all 6 eps ready to binge watch from the get go.

I'll be watching one a night, and so far have seen two.

This thread is for chatting about it, so spoilers beware etc. etc. etc.




Ep 1. Good introduction, pretty good casting. Went their own way with a few things and diverged from the book (usually the case tho aint it). I agree with Tofu in that most of the cast all look the same, and they established each characters name with a title card then it moved straight on. Someone died, and we are trying to figure out who....

I think if you have not read the book, this might be more enjoyable. The book is a hard one to live up to I think, but hey it's only ep 1.




--------------------------------


Ep 2. Getting better? Milo's character is nail on the head. But Cathcart isn't doing it for me. He's too authoritarian whereas in the book he was unsure of himself all the time and way less direct.

"They made a Danby outta Korn" - so right.

We lost Clevinger in ep 2. Pretty accurate to the books. RIP.

The texan scene was ok, from memory in the book though there was alot more of them in hospital at the time, not just Yossarian.

Also the Chaplain turned up which is cool. Next ep looks like it will be Bologna!


This thread is gonna be a lot of "but in the book" I feel.




WHERE IS HUNGRY JOE

WHERE IS CHIEF WHITE HALFOAT

They probably gonna skip or merge a bunch of characters since there are so many and only 6 eps. GoT up in this bitch.

  Wargroove -Web River - A tale of salt and stupidity
Posted by: womblemuppet - 08-05-2019, 08:45 AM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (7)

So me and some friends played some Wargroove, and I had decided to keep a thoughts log of the game as it ran its course. Some of the predictions turned out true and some of them were hilariously false/unnecessary. 

Web river - the SAGA

[Image: jPLVzHS.png]

Quote:web river turn 3? maybe 4

-captured two cities on the right and two to the middle,
moved swordsmen left, crossed river with commander to left and attacked Benji's spearman to the left.
Web river is a 4p map with 4 central cities to fight over and advantage to attackers fighting counter-clockwise.
Not all the borders are even though, Green has 4 cities in close range to the enemy, Blue has 1. The tree/river placements are also skewed a bit and this might affect who attacks across the border and who attacks the centre.
The capping moves are obvious enough. I have 4 barracks already and don't want to attack upward, so the barracks to the right is low priority.
The brave swordsman in the middle cluster of cities will take a big whack from a medieval kid with a mech, but mission accomplished. With murder teddy's commander blocked I can send the 1hp unit to cap the city above, putting me with the highest income by 200g next turn.
Jordan (red) has the weakest starting position (good because he's first in turn order!). The red-green border is hard to defend for green because of the city placement, but right now the river stops jordan attacking. but, with the middle cities a long way away and the need to keep units to defend his command tower, jordan won't be doing anything for a while.
Murder Teddy on the other hand, has a strong army (minus commander) on the cyan red border, and enough money to make a treb next turn. Red's spearmen are slow and jordan won't wagon his units to the right so it would be a strong attack.
Teddy isn't sending any units down, and his commander is going left to get some groove charge but that's about it.
Benji (green) will send his army down to fight me, but his commander is stuck defending the forest square on his border. The green/red border is rough for green with not many treb placements for green and the possibility of red's treb hitting all of green's base.
Benji should have to defend that border by moving units above the river, stretching jordan between two fronts.
I'm attacking with Mercia to the left basically because I can.
Assuming I don't die to the 3 units already defending (I shouldn't , I think, but I've been burnt before) , the extra groove charge I get will be useful healing my mass of units with Mercia AOE.
I've saved my money to build a treb, which goes above my barracks to defend my forward two cities, and the path to the right. Teddy can still send units along the right border of the map out of range but I'll have plenty of time to see him coming.
The plan early is to build swordsmen early to fight Benji's army until jordan has the balls to attack the red/green border. A treb would be low-value on that river so after swordsmen archers can attack the cities and get me the bottom cities.
Knights would counter this comp meaning I would be forced to buy spearmen who are lumbering af. Tenri (green commander) coming down to fight me would leave green's cities vunerable to siege + doggo power so I just need to wait if that happens.
So I'm assuming:
Teddy attacks jordan quickly, with his commander mucking around in the middle for a bit and then moving up (not down as there's a treb)
Jordan dicks around, or potentially wagons a unit into the middle which would be dumb
Benji tries to kill my commander, and backs up the bottom border with lots of units but not his commander giving me the edge.
Unless Benji also sends an army upward, he will die slowly.
I slowly try to grab the bottom 1/2 of the map. The middle will probably go to Teddy who will eventually have a big enough army to attack downward.

Quote:web river turn 4

-captured top right middle city, captured city above blue command tower, captured right-side barracks,
killed green 2x swordsmen 1x spearmen
Looks like Jordan's gonna get dicked. I'm guessing he'll wagon his commander back and make a wall of spearmen. Benji can then take the two close cities with his commander.
Murder Teddy will take 3~ turns (depending on Benji's swordsman) to take the middle-right two cities (nothing I can do to stop it I believe, treb won't defend the bottom-right city). 
Benji's fodder stream will eventually push me back in the bottom left unless I take the forward barracks. Assuming he moves everything down I'll have to run away until I have 2 or 3 archers, so maybe it's best to run next turn so he doesn't buy anything expensive. Likewise, 
Murder Teddy has no units in his base but even with a surprise giant from the bottom barracks he'd have 3 turns to buy something. Buying a ballista next turn to do the same as the treb would deter Teddy from getting the middle (it's just at max range, 6 squares).


[Image: vkVjIh1.png]

Quote:Web River turn 5

-Continued attack on green/blue border, moved treb to defend middle, made 2x archers.
What is Jordan (red) doing he's going to die ahahahaha.
Red continued attack, meaning Benji moved less units than expected down. With 3 archers on their way, I think I can straight take the forward barracks with the current units.
Client bugged out on one of my attacks, leaving footman with his feet wet in the river. He has a mind of his own.
I honestly think Jordan is going to die soon so starting next turn I will make it a priority to mass units on the blue/cyan border. Best would be units strong on their own at taking buildings (archers trebs).
If I attack too early I will paint a target on my head since I have the highest income already. Maybe I can make the treb at my main base on the road, and zoom it up the following turn (sneaky).
Benji is continuing to send swordsmen and spearmen who will die to my archers..


[Image: 4KAwquY.png]

Quote:Web River turn 6

RIP jordan. Benji and Teddy will take over the red area over the next 2-3 turns, and will start fighting over the middle soon.
I think even if I succeed in destroying Teddy's command tower I'll lose the game anyway as it stands, but since Teddy will take most of the red base, I need to pressure him or I'll lose the middle.
Fuck me Benji has a lot of spearmen. I'm pretty sure until they get nerfed (if ever) mass spearmen + trebs is the strongest army comp.
Lets see what I can do against the conga line..

This turn I forget to write-up, and I die the turn after to a silly mistake. Fuck me.

Fortune Editors Wrote:This Is the Emotional Quality That the World’s Greatest Leaders All Share
Our sixth annual leaders list is the home of the brave. These thinkers, speakers, and doers make bold choices and take big risks—and move others to do the same.

When Anna Nimiriano goes to work in the morning at the Juba Monitor newspaper in South Sudan, she may not have to worry about getting fired. She’s the editor-in-chief. But she does have to worry about being jailed or even killed. The authoritarian government frequently dislikes what she publishes. At least seven journalists have been murdered in South Sudan since its civil war began in 2013, and President Salva Kiir has explicitly threatened to kill more. The One Free Press Coalition of major news organizations says Nimiriano “lives under constant threat.” Yet she carries on.

Nimiriano is No. 8 on our new list of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders, an example of astounding courage. Not many of our other honorees risk their lives, but it’s striking how courage is a theme running powerfully through this year’s list. Whether in business, government, education, sports, or NGOs, these leaders take action before others do, leading from out front, where the risk is often dire and their own future least certain. Everyone has something to lose, and many on our list risk possessions that most people value highly: reputation, career, fortune, esteem.

Consider Lloyds Banking Group CEO António Horta-Osório, who has openly acknowledged his struggle with mental health. Such an admission was previously inconceivable for a high-profile CEO, so he couldn’t know what would happen. Turns out it has brought him praise rather than scorn and has helped lift a stigma in an industry notorious for driving workers up to and beyond their limits.

Great leaders never know for sure if their plans will work, but they plunge ahead anyway. That’s why we recognize sheer audacity, well intended, even if the results aren’t known and even if the plans aren’t universally applauded. CEO Tim Cook is steering Apple, a giant worth over $900 billion, away from heavy reliance on slowing iPhone sales and toward a business model based on subscription revenue. Many industry experts are skeptical. All we know for sure is he had to act, he’s working at gigantic scale, and he isn’t playing it safe.

It's brave, risking life in the interest of free press in a nation ravaged by civil war, genocide, corruption, famine and a ruling power that may destroy you.
But also Tim Cook is very brave for diversifying Apple's portfolio

The Top 50 Leaders list also ranks in all 42 newly elected female politicians in the USA (including Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) at number 18 below Sean McVay; "The youngest head coach in modern NFL history took his team to the Super Bowl"

  One Punch Man season 2
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 16-04-2019, 06:36 PM - Forum: Degenerates - Replies (66)

So the only Anime I've watched properly and multiple times since High School is One Punch Man.

It's so fantastic. Goddam stellar, 10/10 for sure.

Our resident weeb told me season 2 started, so hopped on Ep 1 tonight. Ep 2 should be out tomorrow. This is the thread for tracking each episode, week by week.


So, Ep 1 season 2. I thought it was dam good. Humor is still top notch, although i think the animation took a little bit of a hit? Looks "softer" than last time (not as fluid or sharp as season 1) but could have been just me.

I don't know what this season is based off, Oathy can you chime in? I know season 1 ended where the Manga was currently up to, its been a couple years so is it following whats been written manga-wise or?

Anyway, plot has a direction, keen to see way more of the other heroes and they teased a bunch of old and new. I have high hopes for this season.

Gotta love Sitama, stops the bird with one hand, then one punches its head. ALMOST LIKE THATS HIS SCHTICK.

The part where they were gaming at Kings place was great too, loved it.
