    Thoughts on The Orville going to Hulu? I'm a little worried, but hopeful. It won't have any impact on how I watch it, since it will simply be moving to a different TV channel in Canada. Most likely he new CTV Sci-Fi channel ( it was called Space for almost 2 decades ). Many streaming services are still not available here due to the government run CRTC agency.It's a blessing and a curse.

    Oh well there was no official way to watch it here in Ireland so for me it's going from Piracy with one logo on it to Piracy with another logo.

    I give my money each month to Netflix for my 4k sub, if another company pays money to start a online sub model and removes shows from Netflix... I'll continue to watch the shows just not on Netflix and I'll keep supporting my boys.

    Again, Ganon, I feel I owe you an apology for being an aggressive jerk. So, apologies. I'm gonna PM you when I get a chance.

    Oh about the Denis Leary stuff? Man I've got a few mates who can't stand the guy as well, I've had a few of the comedy shows which he ripped off 100% played for me especially some of the work of Bill Hicks where he pretty much copies down to the little inflections in the speech and movements.

    I just watch tons and tons of comedy and stand up though so I'm well used to people copying other material and in some cases copying their own material and having to play it off as a new and interesting discovery for themselves, Jimmy Carr does that a lot sometimes having to play out the same sort of thing where he tells half a story and then comes to a realization mid way through it that leads it down another path... but if you see him on big fat quiz, 8 out of 10 cats (does countdown) and some of his own stand up dvd's or netflix specials, then you'll see that he retells the stories and jokes playing up what worked and leaving out parts which didn't to the point where you can see his own reactions to the story are just as fake as most of the storys themselves.

    Sorry for the tangent... but.... given the above paragraph, I still love the fuck outta Jimmy Carr for all of his comedic work, I think he is amazing but I watch him knowing that he has to perform tours and gigs all over the place and he has to borrow from all over including himself to create that amount of content.

    It's like my love of star trek.... I love it even though episodes like Tuvix exists or spocks brain! you gotta take the good with the bad.

    The same mostly goes for posts on VGchartz :D unless I kinda call out where someone has rubbed me up the wrong way I don't really take too much of it to heart, the people who do annoy me to the point where I'm going to not post @them anymore, I kinda tell directly that it's too much.

    on 30 July 2019

    Ah dude. I wish I could remember my exact quote to my cousin regarding the Tuvix episode, but if I were stand up, and he was an audience, I slayed. :)

    I should have worded my post differently. Like: "I highly suspect Denis Leary is a joke thief", instead of dealing in confrontational absolutes.

    I;m hopeful for PIcard, but skeptical. It's airing in Canada on cable TV, so I get to try it out risk free. Any thoughts?

    on 30 July 2019

    I worry that it's just going to be hauling out old memories, pointing at them and screaming "REMEMBER THIS" At the camera for 45 mins each week, I recently finished rewatching TNG as I've been enjoying the heck outta a podcase which I strongly recommend called "The Greatest Generation" but man... that ending, Troi's line of "you were always welcome" that cuts through me like a knife through a slightly softer knife. Even knowing the scene is coming it always gets me right in the feels.

    Picard should have been left alone there or the TNG movies which I more see as a romp for the cast and crew rather than viewing them as harshly as some of the critics did.... (like Tom Hardy nearly offed himself after seeing critical reaction to Nemesis, always sad to see)

    Picard here in Ireland will likely go up on Netflix the same as Disco did, either that or the Pirate bay, I'll be honest, when I started off with Netflix I had the basic bitch package but over the years upped that to max so I could help fund some of those great shows they buy and make... but now with everyone wanting a slice of that streaming pie and cutting up their own shows into 20 different subscriptions... yeah piracy might be getting called on more going forwards. I have a finite amount of money and 20 monthly subs of 10 is cash I ... have but I'm not going to spend on each service having 2-3 episodes of something I want to watch each month.

    Also .... was your Tuvix line something along the lines of "if he doesn't step into the transporter... get out of my way, because I fucking will instead" The happy embrace of spraying my atoms across the bulkhead would be so much better than living in the same universe as Tuvix.

    on 30 July 2019

    I went on a DS9 marathon recently. It was season 6 stuff. The level to which I enjoyed it is difficult to put into words. The acting, writing, and directing, at it's best, is soooo good. Even though the big battle scenes were unfortunately, not faithful to the source material, with giant holes being blasted through every ship, with every attack. No shields! I've heard it was budgetary constraints that lead to things playing out as they did.

    I have similar thoughts to yours as for how Picard will turn out. I only recently became aware of who Alex Kurtzman is....Like about a week ago. That he is involved in any capacity is a bad sign. I'm less worried about nostalgia that feels a bit forced than I am about every episode being a journey inside the mind of an idiot.

    Are you caught up on The Orville? Just want to mention something if I get the all-clear.

    oh! didnt see this wall post sorry Coktoe, yup I've seen it all though, just waiting now and hoping that fox picks it up for a 3rd season.

    on 28 April 2019

    No worries. I'm legit bummed it hasn't been renewed yet. What I wanted to mention is......I think I hate Klyden. Like maybe even HATE-hate. Almost hoping he suffers an ignominious death.

    Loved season 2 in general, but wasn't a big fan of the season ( please! ), series ( noooooooo! ) finale.

    on 29 April 2019

    I kinda liked the SEASON finale, it was Seth showing he has the chops to do dark and gritty if the need arises, sort of firefly style.

    I think we're meant to hate Klyden but at the same time I kinda view him as say.... a guy who's circumsized, the kids that have that done to them have zero input on the decision but as adults I'vee found it very easy to tell if someone is when it comes to discussing the point because they need to convince others that what happened to their body was the right choice that all should under go, I mean Klyden was born female, as a man he needs to fully back the thoughts that a female moclan is an abomination because if they're allowed to live as women and have a full and happy life then he kinda sees a glimpse of the life that he never got to choose if he had it or not.

    This series has so much potential not just as a 1 and done but potentially as a whole new sci fi franchise, I really hope Fox and Seth grow the project into the potential that's clearly there for the taking.

    on 29 April 2019

    Well, I DID get notification of your post here. Have no idea how I missed it. I'm anxious to comment, but it's very early and I just woke up. So forgive me if my post seems off :).....

    Kylden,....yeah you're probably right be. Although there have been times in between him being portrayed as an ignorant, conniving, life ruining bigot, where he we was kinda just normal again, or even a sympathetic character. Like when Bortus was going through his pornography addiction ( good sci-fi! ), and the smoking episode was hilarious.

    On the one hand, some his more detestable character qualities could be seen as being culturally baked in though indoctrination that begins at birth. One the other hand, he has shown he's capable of betraying the confidence of the person he loves most in service of terrible ideals, and seems incapable of change or critical thought.

    IDK....I just want to hear that season 3 announcement!

    A few questions: Are you up to date on The Orville, and have you been enjoying the new season? Also, how do you watch it in Ireland? I have been loving it. There was a recent episode I had pegged early on as kind of a paint by numbers affair that turned around on me and ended up being much more.

    holy fuck.... that latest episode, I thought all along he was a cool stand in for Data and really was impressed that he managed to be a character without any form of face (potato head not counting) but wow that show has got me totally hooked on the world they're spinning and I hope every one of the 3m who tune in each week is enough for them to continue making the show.

    From what I understand Fox recently dropped 1.5billion dollars on WWE which has failed to break the 3m viewers figure for the last 2-3 years so hopefully that means the show is worth the money I think it deserves.

    Sadly here in Ireland the only real means I have to watch it is via piracy from the pirate bay as Netflix has gone all in on bringing us Star Trek Discovery instead which I'm about 4 episodes behind with but have no real interest in continuing on with, even though I'm the biggest trek nerd you'll meet and have watched every episode of every show they've made including the animated series. I love Trek but STD isn't Trek, it's just war with a star trek license on it, the hopeful future has been ripped out and replaced with cgi space battles with characters I don't care about.

    Genuinely it's my fav show each week and possibly one of the favourite things I've seen since Breaking bad.

    With some more checking about, this is from a year ago, from what I understand things still didn't change here. Pirate bay ftw. would love to support the show but can't.

    on 23 February 2019

    Yeah, regarding the latest ep: The show continues to surprise me. Whether it be in more self contained stories, or in the overall arc. I was taken off-guard by the pacing of the last ep. My least fav ep this year was the "Astrology Race", ( which felt very STTNG to me ) , but it was still solid. I was turned off by early buzz from STD, and nothing I've heard since has changed that. It looks like crap tbh.

    on 24 February 2019

    You know that Astrology episode was so TNG that I am also rewatching TNG alongside a podcast of 2 guys reviewing each episode of it called "The Greatest Generation" absolutely amazing podcast btw, would highly recommend for any Trek fan.

    But after watching a few eps of TNG I was thinking back over them and thinking... man... I barely remembered that episode about the crazy star sign people but it was really good, before stopping myself and thinking like.... fuck, that wasn't TNG, had legit been so TNG that in my mind I had accidentally put it in there as a TNG episode and not Orville.

    I find it really funny now to look back at things like and think man... Seth wanted to be on Trek so much that he went on to make his own Show about it which now gets 3 million viewers per episode.

    As for STD it just makes me sad, it's like they went into a board room with some power point docs about how they need to make Star Trek be more like Star Wars because everyone loves Star Wars right not, so they've warped the IP to breaking point, almost every single character on that show has mental health issues as well, as a part of their character, the range from having PTSD, Asperger's, Guilt induced imaginary friends, insane inferiority complexes, there is just not a single person on the bridge who is likable or who I can relate to while watching the show, Michael is just too powerful and none of the other characters get any time in the lime light to accommodate that, it would be like if Star Trek TNG wanted Riker to be the main character of the show.... so every episode you put him next to one of the other characters helping them to fix a stupid issue they got themselves into, the end result would have been TNG where no character seems like a real person, Riker would seem god like and you would wonder how any of the others graduated from Star Fleet Academy.

    on 24 February 2019

    I doubt I'll have the time to listen to that podcast, but at least I know about it now. So, are you telling me that you briefly confused the Orville episode we've been talking about as a TNG episode? :) Haaa. That's pretty cool that Seth was in Enterprise. Aside from the first 2-3 episodes of Enterprise, I actually haven't watched a new Star Trek TV show since Voyager ended, so I had no idea he did that cameo.

    on 28 February 2019

    He doesn't just have one cameo either lol

    He has 3 appearances as that engineer with dialogue each time as well, feel sorry for the other extra's but they would probably have asked for money but Seth clearly was creaming his pants at the thought of putting on a Starfleet uniform.

    I'll always say it, Enterprise isn't the worst TV you could ever watch, there are some really good episodes later on in its fairly short run but some really terrible ones as well to go with it, also they are very careful with continuity in it unlike in STD, say for example the Borg are in an episode and they address the Enterprise but their transmission is scrambled as the ship tries to make sense of the start of it ya know the "We are the Borg, Lower your Shields and surrender your vessels speech" as such the Borg portion of it is missing and the crew leave the episode not knowing who the aliens were and so the Enterprise D's first encounter with them is the first time that Star Fleet knows they have encountered, The Borg.

    I always recommend Trek with one caviate though.... I love everything Trek lol, got about a grand worth of Models on my PC Desk from the show so aye.... my recommendation is like that of a 30 stone man squeezed into a XXXXXXL Superman shirt sweating and telling you that Justice League wasn't a bad film! :D

    But yeah, Irelands lovely :o a big change from Au I would imagine considering that you have spiders, bugs and crocodiles, Ireland has.... rainbows and lucky charms (although that's actually an American cereal which you have to import here)

    Can't beat the green fields of home though, would advise a visit if you're ever doing a world tour, the county I live in is just a couple of hours away from that Island where Luke was hiding out in the Force Awakens so there is even some nice nerd culture in the area if green isn't your thing.

    I'm truly sorry Ganon. I was nothing less than a total asshole to you. The timing of everything was atrocious. You're one of my favorite people on here. That's why I message you on PSN with pictures of my sock feet and musings on technology.

    in relation to the Fortnite stuff is it? Honestly I think it's just one of those things where you seem to dislike the game to the point where anything about it isn't going to have value, and honestly I do appreciate that view of things but at the same time I just wasn't going to go into the nitty gritty of why certain things had value to people who play that thing.

    It would be like trying to convince an alien why dollars have less value than euros :D when he is just trying to put ketchup on you and eat you.... I didn't wanna get eaten!

    on 04 October 2018

    Don't worry about it, no harm done though I just played my normal card of "backs away slowly from argument" it works pretty well for me most of the time especially in things like Fortnite, I should point out, considering I've a Switch with several titles (10 or so) entering the 100 hours mark, fortnite for me barely reached double digits.

    I enjoy it and see the appeal but equally it's not something which appeals to me in a long term way, there is no ranked, no story, no real progression other than cosmetic items, it ticks very few of my boxes for a good game ... for me, but I appreciate what they've created is a very good game, it's just not my kinda good game, if that makes sense.

    I have one more question: Do I have to beat the regular bosses again in new game+ to fight them? As I mentioned, I got the obel for the first boss. The giude seems to indicate that you need to, but that was in reference to the 1st playthrough. Just want make sure my ducks are in row.

    I just went ahead and started killing the regular bosses again, because why not?

    on 19 June 2018

    yeah, in the castle you are looking at getting the remix bosses the normal version has to be dead.

    Since it changes the doorway to the remix one if you were to change a boss from normal to remix it could stop some people getting further into the new game + since you can continue to make the game harder that way forever but some of those remix bosses will take you a long time to get down.

    So, I've been playing Rouge Legacy for the past few weeks. Pretty amazing game IMO. Then it hit me today: Was that video of Ganoncrotch's that I watched some time ago from Rogue Legacy? Saw one of your posts, then your sig, and yes, yes it was. In new game plus right now, and have yet to fight any remix bosses.

    I think it's probably one of my favorite games of all times just for the fact that unless you get 3 absolutely worthless offspring you can pretty much bring any character through as much of the game as your mastery of the controls allows.

    Did actually throw together a very basic how to video on getting to a remix, it doesn't have to be new game + that only effects the normal enemies and bosses. So you just need to keep searching those pray shrines after you have a boss of the 4 defeated and then die to return that to Charon .

    on 19 June 2018

    Delighted to hear you enjoying it though, really hope it gets a switch port sometime, not just to have it portable since I have the Vita version platinumed but just to have an excuse to give them more money for it :D

    on 19 June 2018

    Oh my. I had a rough idea about what needed to be done to access the Remix Bosses, but didn't know the full process. And the game hands the player a random character to use? Yikes. I'd give your vid a like, buy cannot, as I was permabanned from Youtube 6 days ago. Here's a lifehack: DON"T upload hardcore pornography to your Youtube channel. You might get banned for life.

    on 19 June 2018

    I wish I had followed the roadmap at playstationtrophies. I already beat the game, so I assume that the already difficult remix bosses will now be even more difficult in new game plus. Dammit. Also I got the obol for the castle boss, but as I've yet to defeat it in new game plus, I have to beat it again to fight it? Jesus, I should have paid closer attention.

    on 19 June 2018

    No no the remix bosses are always the same, the champ you get always has the same abilities and they're always the same level and difficulty, so you can't out level them.

    It's why I'm so happy with the zero damage taken kill of the remixed Ponce de freon

    Just letting you know that I, along with some of the other mods, have spoken to TalonMan about the whole tag situation, and he's put it on his to-do list.

    I'm not 100% sure on what is going to happen, although he does agree that some of the tags seem a little useless, so hopefully, at some point in the future, they'll be removed and we'll be able to trim the fat to just the necessities... I'm sure it'll be made known once it happens, like a thread will be made or something, lol.

    Sound for letting me know Bristow, Sorry if in the thread I was attacking you like "DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!" my comments were more trying to be along the lines of "is this just me? I'm confused lol"

    I do think that the tags are really a useful fast tool, I recall seeing I think it was Mr Khan when I started using this site absolutely put down certain users and telling them outright to stop talking shit and they did because mostly at the time in the thread he was the only one who had any tag on his avatar and that tag meant "STFU" also Khan was known it seemed to be unafraid to swing that hammer of his if people didn't follow his "advice"

    I just think that if the system was more streamlined it could go back to meaning something, rather than just being a spray of random things down an avatar, people with 4+ of them just going on a complete example here VGpolyglot (nothing against the user) but yeah 4 tags.... but I'm not sure any of them mean anything other than DB admin, I'm guessing means he can add or delete pictures from the game database (?) but that's from myself, someone here for 6 years and I look at his avatar and think.... is that someone who has any say on things on this site?

    Good luck getting something sorted though and hopefully it's not fruitless work for Talon if he manages to string something together, I do think a Status idea would be cool like the thing you can get to the right of your name in the profile page, if that was shown somewhere on/around your avatar I think it would give people what they might enjoy with things like Ruepel and such without infringing on that area of the avatar used by moderators / site admins.
