The Borg assimilated much of the Internet when they captured other human technologies and culture.
  • As far as the basic concept goes, they are very similar though there are significant differences in the details that are mostly a blur in my memories except that the actress for Seven of Nine is significantly more attractive than Douglock.

  • ComicList: New Comic Book Releases List for 06/12/2024
  • I didn't expect to see Armory Wars on the release list, I'm tempted to check it out! I wasn't sure they would finish out the Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV series but apparently the second issue of the No World For Tomorrow story arc is releasing.

    The series has been such an absolute mess but I'm fascinated by the Coheed and Cambria world and love a lot of their music so it's been interesting seeing the characters and the story told in a straightforward way instead of just interpreted through their song lyrics and band interviews. I might wait until it's all done and all the issues are wrapped up into a nicely priced volume but I may just get an issue if reviews say it's good as it goes along .

  • Microplastics found in every human testicle in study

  • Have experience with ShadowRun for Genesis, chum?
  • I know of the Genesis game but never played it (though I do own the newer titles in the series), but did some digging to see what I could find to answer your questions:

    Am I imagining this games difficulty? I feel like I am making little progress and I’m always getting ganged up on. / Does this game require a lot of grinding or repeating tasks before moving on?

    Everything I'm finding is saying yes to both, with the grinding resulting in the increased money, stats, contacts, equipment and practicing/refining your own strategy for completing runs. Luckily, there are multiple strategies for "quick" grinding, and certain equipment and stats that really help whether it be just straight up powerful stuff or specifically helps to deal with pesky foes like ghouls. Because there are different sections to the grinding with different strategies to doing it efficiently, I'll leave the specifics out since they get a little spoiler-y in case you want to figure it out on your own. But, do let me know if you'd like me to reply with specific strategies that may be seen as too much of a walkthrough or too spoilery for some (they don't seem like gigantic story spoilers or anything so if the grinding gets too tedious and you stop having fun, they might be worth knowing about).

    Should I be killing these innocents I see on the street? I try to get shadow runs but they seemingly always involve killing ghouls, which bend me over and spank my samurai butt. I’ve put my morals on hold and have been tediously murdering the population for the little nuyen and items they have.

    Luckily the Karma explanation section on the Shadowrun strategywiki actually explains this pretty well. I went through it and it looks like a straight up explanation without story spoilers so I feel comfortable just linking it here for you: https://strategywiki.org/wiki/Shadowrun_(Sega_Genesis)/Karma#Karma

    -is the samurai class the all-rounder character or should I just restart as a shaman or netrunner?

    I found a really good explanation on the Shadowrun wiki: https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Shadowrun_(Sega)/Archetype. Thankfully this also gives a much needed explanation of the differences between classes without spoilers. It seems like this info is very important to know upfront depending on what your playstyle is like.

    As far as the game itself, I did not play the genesis version but definitely looked into it after I got the Shadowrun trilogy that GOG games gave out for free a few years back. From what I found, the Sega Genesis version is superior to the SNES version in a few ways but a lot of people enjoyed both. I really like the style and concepts presented in the series and the newer Shadowrun trilogy seems to have taken all of that and improved on it, with each game getting better and better at giving the experience intended. I'd say it's worth taking a look at if you enjoy the Genesis game, or if you really like the elements of the Genesis game but aren't enjoying it so much, the newer series might be what you're looking for.

    Edit: Spelling, grammar and formatting.

    Edit 2: Also, here is a link to a PDF of the original game manual for the Sega Genesis version, which helps navigate the UI and buttons, etc., just in case you need it since manuals were kind of a big deal back in the day!

  • Anon is suspicious
  • It is common knowledge, I merely guessed they used that specific hunting strategy over other "food hacks" because this is literally a greentext community.

  • Anon is suspicious
  • They're probably referencing another greentext from the perspective of a fast sprinting Elk that can't escape the long-distance persistence endurance of a bipedal human hunter:

  • Guess the Episode [Medium]
  • All my dress shirts have buttons at the wrists but man did I still want a pair of pig cufflinks when I was younger.

  • Guess the Episode [Genius at Work]
  • That's it! That's why the episode stuck with me because of the TIL post about this! (And that I do the washing machine impression when I'm doing laundry every now and then).

  • Guess the Episode [Genius at Work]
  • Woohoo! A lot of Simpsons episodes are still intact in my memory but I do think I only remember this one so well because of the TIL post years ago that went over how the real life Albuquerque Isotopes were inspired by this episode.

  • Morgan Spurlock dead: Super Size Me director dies at 53
  • The premiere episode where they try to survive on minimum wage is still one of the best day-to-day documentations of the struggle and that was almost 20 years ago, well before the price gouging of today. I wish it had as much impact as Supersize Me which actually succeeded at putting pressure on McDonald's to make changes.

  • Guess the Episode [Genius at Work]
  • That's Blockoland, baby! Homer does an impression of a robot taking command of humans, then moves to the second mirror pictured here and does the same impression except as a washing machine taking command of humans.

    The episode is Season 12, Episode 15 (Hungry Hungry Homer). The visit to Blockoland is just to kick off the plot starting with a missing piece in the Blocko set Lisa got, which leads to Homer demanding the missing piece be provided and sends him on a crusade to stick up for the little guy all around town. He finds out the Springfield Isotopes are moving to Albuquerque, but is unable to convince anyone of it without proof. This leads to him chaining himself outside the baseball stadium and going on a hunger strike until management admits the truth, but draws such a crowd that management relocates the pole inside the stadium and turns him into a gimmick known as "Hungry Hungry Homer" until a hot dog topped with evidence saves the day.

  • COURIER: "That right there (pointing at the platinum chip) is the mail. Now let's talk about the mail. Can we talk about the mail, please, Boone? I've been dying to talk about the mail with you all day, OK? "Robert House," this name keeps coming up over and over again. Every day Robert's mail is getting sent back to me. Robert House! Robert House! I look in the mail, and this whole box is Robert House! So I say to myself, "I gotta find this guy! I gotta go up to his office and put his mail in the guy's goddamn hands! Otherwise, he's never going to get it and he's going to keep coming back down here." So I go up to Robert's office and what do I find out, Boone? What do I find out?! There is no Robert House. The man does not exist, okay? So I decide, "Oh shit, buddy, I gotta dig a little deeper." There's no Robert House? You gotta be kidding me! I got boxes full of Robert! All right. So I start marchin' my way down to Jane in HR and I knock on her door and I say, "Jane! Jane! I gotta talk to you about Robert." And when I open the door what do I find? There's not a single goddamn desk in that office! There...is...no...Jane in HR. Boone, half the employees in this building have been made up. This office is a goddamn ghost town."

    Boone: OK, Courier I'm going to have to stop you right there. Not only do all of these people exist, but they've been asking for their mail on a daily basis. It's all they're talking about up there. Jesus Christ, dude, we are going to lose our jobs.

  • A Fan Was Hit by a 110-M.P.H. Foul Ball. Now She’s on a Trading Card.
  • Topps said it made 110 custom cards for Liz McGuire

    For anyone asking the same question I did, the article says she's 40 which means she wasn't named after the Hilary Duff character since Lizzy McGuire premiered in 2001.

  • I actually kinda like his work.
  • This is my yearly reminder that I still haven't watched Melancholia (2011) and that I should at some point.

  • Blue by Evanyell
  • I could see this wizard being voiced by J.G. Quintel!

  • Deactivating Facebook for just a few weeks reduces belief in fake news
  • The person reacting to your comment calling them a pigeon:

  • My windowless, vault-like office needed an inspirational message
  • Using the blue and yellow pushpins to put this up is the kind of attention to detail that makes someone Overseer material. Keep up the good work, vault dweller.

  • I'm going to make it commit rules
  • Meowth has such a tragic backstory of abandonment, heartbreak, rejection and belonging. Abandoned as a kitten, learned to walk on two legs to impress Meowzie only to be outcast for it, learned to talk but realized learning to talk and walk instead of training has made him weak and unskilled in battles, rejected by both other Meowths and humans for being a "freak" that is too different from either group, finally finding acceptance and a place with Jesse and James.

    I think you're right that his job and his co-workers are what keep him going without any need for extra manipulation, although his massive jealousy of Giovanni's Persian fueled by his insecurity of never being able to be seen as such a prized Pokemon are a part of that drive.

  • Just got a fantastic gift from my husband :)
  • Any recommendations for reliable storage? I need new drives but I've put off buying any for years with all the bad reviews and counterfeit products making me weary of any deal that seems too reasonable or model with known issues.

  • [Request] Bleak/desolate/dreary looking movies. Basically where you seldom see the sun shine.
  • This is the extreme end of things but nearly every Zack Snyder movie, extreme because it specifically goes heavy on editing saturation, contrast, etc., that takes away the aspects of realism for this look to instead make it stylized in an exaggerated way on purpose.

    Joker (2019) plays with this look.

    A lot of noir-esque stuff will use this kind of look to varying degrees too. Dark City (1998), and a lot of the future/neo-noirs will do this even when bright cyberpunk lights are present. Zone 414 (2021) is another one. Live by Night (2016) uses it during the criminal activity scenes to contrast against the brighter, roaring world of the rich.

    I think there are a lot of better examples out there that I'm just not thinking of at the moment.

    Edit: Adding Prisoners (2013), Pan's Labyrinth (2006), Children of Men (2006), and Taxi Driver (1976) to the list.

    [SOLVED] Paul Revere by Beastie Boys [Hip-Hop]

    This post was solved by @lemonmelon, the song is "Paul Revere" (1986) by the Beastie Boys.

    Don't forget the clues, friends! The first clue I provided was that this song wasn't released in the 90s and then got several guesses afterward that were all songs from the 90s. I've only got a few more posts left before I take my leave, it's been fun but I'm usually not on often enough to keep up, so make sure to peep those clues on my final posts!
