Our 24/7 dedicated modded Minecraft server is now LIVE once more, this time with a new modpack that promises adventure, an RPG-like experience (if you choose to accept), magic from sacrificial blood magic to the magic of nature to witchcraft and more, industry and electricity, the ability to discover fossils - and use them to resurrect dinosaurs, a vast array of decorative options to pimp out your house, and so very much more! This time we are using the Fantasy Tech Modpack, only available to be downloaded and run via the Technic Launcher.

Keep in mind that this new modpack is dangerous; you've got more than skeletons and zombies out to get you - in fact, yo've got everything from harpies to eldritch demons to tornadoes to contend with, so a new cballenge will await you!

Some starting supplies are provided, including a low level armored electronic jetpack. While you're getting started, a recharging station in the form of a capacitor bank is available right at spawn to recharge it before you can build a power system of your own. Follow the signs from spawn to get to the starter suppply chest - just leave some for the next person, please, unless the chest is nearly empty. If the starting supply chest is out of supplies, please contact me (dedbbs in game, deadbabies on IRC) if the chest needs more jetpacks, torches, food, or iron swords.

Regular automated backups are made both to protect against world-destroying bugs and to protect against griefing. If your area is messed up for whatever reason, please contact deadbabies on IRC or dedbbs (same person, me) in game, and if it's not severely detrimental to other people's progress, I will restore the backup. If I cannot do that, I will provide replacement blocks and resources and most likely help to rebuild.

7chan is also equally invited to play, in the spirit of the linked IRC networks.

Our irc channel is #ftb on 99chan IRCl. The channel is also linked directly to the game - what you type in game comes out in the channel and vice versa. But please, join us on IRC for the latest updates, faster help, and just to join us. All good folks are welcome!

IF you need help immediately, and an op (dedbbs or DIMT_Minecraft) is not in game and not responding to requests for help over the IRC<->Minecraft lnk,also come on IRC for immediate help. Some of our users might be able to help you, and some of them can also get a hold of me otherwise if it's an emergency (the server goes down, the server melts down, there's a mass griefing, etc;) Please let me (deadbabies) or DIMT - our IRC names - know ASAP if any of these happen - on IRC or in game, please, this thread, let's face, won't be read quickly enough to take care of things immediately. And any problems connecting or getting things set up, also come on IRC for quick help.

And keep in mind, the server is up 24/7, so no matter when you're available or where you are, you can still play! The server is located in a place that it's lag free for 99% of Americans and should also be for any Western Europeans. :3

Good evening. This board is for discussion of all audio-visual entertainment. Movies, television, video games... hell, even radio. If you're so white that you can't wait to post about the latest episode of This American Life, I sure as hell won't stop you.

If you're looking to chat about entertainment value, plot points, make predictions about cliffhangers, or gossip about upcoming seasons and releases, this is the place for you. If you're looking to talk shop about cinematography, dive into artistic influences, or share big-picture thoughts on story or character development, this is the place for you. If you're looking to go even deeper and weigh in with deconstructions, esoteric observations, or meta-analysis of cultural context and depictions of social narratives, this is the place for you.

Whether you're an Average Joe, a film/TV/video game buff, or anything in between, you are more than welcome to share your thoughts, questions, opinions, recommendations, analyses, and silliness here. Please be respectful of others (unless your disrespect is really, really funny), keep it safe for work, and above all, have fun!

I hated how even a kid with highschool knowledge of biology could point out the errors in the films logic.

turns out we're 100% genetic match to aliens. really? you sure about that number or that fact that something (other then twins) is a 100% genetic match to anything else?

also hated how they were supposed to be these really smart scientists but kept making all these dumb as fuck decisions.

[spoiler]whats that? an autopsy on an alien head? sure ima just chill with a bottle of booze and watch that shit go down. yup fuck sterility.

or, look a new life form that looks pissed off, let's poke the shit out of it.[spoiler]

everything was just so fast paced in that film. too fast paced like the c-section bit. it reminded me of that episodes of the simpsons where moe gets a deep fryer and says how it can deepfry a buffalo in 60 seconds but homer is all like 'but i want it nowwwww'. and then after having MAJOR abdominal surgery she's all like 'yup gonna go exploren sum more.'

>You're going through the film thinking, "Why did that happen?" and "Why did they do this?" and "How did he know that was going to happen?" and so on.

This is how I felt about the movie. I was entertained for the entire duration, but there was so much shit left unanswered and it really bothered me after it was over.

David in particular, as another person ITT mentioned, did no end of bizarre things with absolutely no explanation as to why he did them.

Also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x1YuvUQFJ0

Anyway, the one thing that bothered me the most out of everything in this film was the Alien at the end. That was obviously supposed to be a precursor to the Aliens in Alien, right? So how did it survive and reproduce? I guess it could've eaten the corpse of the Engineer and the weird tentacle monster thing, but then what? There were no other food sources on the planet, the air was completely unbreathable (speaking of which, how did the Engineer make it to the life pod thing to kill Shaw?) and there was only one Alien so it couldn't have reproduced. Realistically, it could've lived for maybe a week and then starved to death or died of dehydration.

Any news about the upcoming sequel series?

Last I heard Lara Flynn Boyle would reprice her role as Donna… She has not aged well at all, so I was really hoping Moira Kelly would step in again, as she did in FWM.
>> No. 708
I watched the “Missing Pieces” (don't ask me why) before I saw the Fire Walk With Me. I watched FWWM yesterday and I can see why your friends say it didn't explain enough about certain parts, and that it explained too much in other parts – the murder of Laura in particular. I didn't think we needed to see that, it felt too much like the 2011 remake/reboot of “The Thing”, showing us every single detail that would be better left to the imagination of the viewer.

I would much rather see the main focus of the film be on agents Desmond & Stanley investigating the murder of Teresa Banks.

Sheryl Lee was great, Moira Kelly was a better Donna IMHO. Would have loved to see Sherilyn Fenn make a small cameo though…

Some of the scenes in The Missing Pieces should have been in the final cut of the film, but it wouldn't have been able to save the film from ultimately falling flat.

Why is it that video games never seem to get romance done right despite constantly trying to make it a major plot point? Some examples of this:

>RPGs trying to have romance as one of their main plot points
Usually these games go through ridiculously unbelievable shit in order to force the couples in them together and most of the time your (usually predetermined) love interest is some bland annoying teenager who isn't interesting in any way, only exist as eventual love interest for the main character and usually has no real reason to give a fuck about the main character. FFVIII is off the charts example of doing this sort of romance wrong.

>Mass Effect, dating sims and other games handling their romances in similar way
Choosing certain dialogue options and hoping to see one or two sex scene(s) as a reward for it is far-cry from being meaningful romance. Romance in games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age really feels stapled on and only seems to be there as fan-service and romance in visual novels is almost always ruined by terrible cliches and predictable plot development.

>Harvest Moon like games
Talking to and/or bringing same item to someone everyday until you have brought enough of them for someone to love you really isn't any kind of romance. Still this type of romance works reasonably well in games which use it and it isn't horribly forced or detract from the characters like the aforementioned RPG romances tend to be. However the problems mentioned under visual novels always seem to be present here as well.

>Besides, I couldn't bare to get between that rich chick and her effeminate lifemate.

Playing DQ5 for the first time right now. I actually picked Deborah. She mellows out after a while. And by 'a while' I mean when you unpetrify her which is basically the end of the game. I felt the other two would be too predictable and lovey-dovey.
>> No. 534
Since it relates to OP's point about the blandness of vg relationships, I'm inclined to point out that the bitchy chick is an addition to the remake and the original SNES version only has the two "lovey-dovey" choices.

I can't seem to get into the game but in the first few minutes of Xenogears there is something kinda romantically impressive. Your childhood friend who you have a crush on has a crush on you too but shes getting married to your best friend so there's an effective "awkward silence" when you give her your blessings.

And then you kill them both, along with nearly everyone else in the village. Oops. [spoiler]Although this does nip a stupid love triangle subplot in the bud early so it doesn't interfere with the game's main plot.[/spoiler]

So I got Dark Souls relatively recently and it has shot up to one of my favorite games ever. The atmoshpere, the combat, the secrets, the lore, the inevitable decline into madness and/or death, all of it is fucking amazing. I played through it once and thought it was damned good until I looked into the lore. Now everything makes sense and I fucking love it even more.
The PvP is broken due to unpredictable lag levels, but the game is still easily one of the best. Haven't played the second yet, have high hopes for the new game of Khorne the Bloodgod.
I love shit like what they did with the hollowing:
When you ragequit forever, that's you going hollow. The endless deaths got to you and you gave up. You're now one of the dead guys that you were killing before. That's why they made it as difficult as they did. That and to reinforce the feeling of inevitable death and decay. So meta, but in a good way I think. I was surprised to see that Expendables 3 did it too.

So what do you say? Have you recently found any games that have utterly blown you away from out of nowhere?
>> No. 686
It's not even that hard once you figure out the fight mechanics.
>> No. 690
Yeah, but you can say that of pretty much every game ever. It's sort of a barrier to entry which shows they weren't afraid to make shit that would not appeal to everyone. I didn't ragequit and I'm not saying you did either, but somebodies did. Now they're basically the crappy man-sized mooks and zombies you find all around. I just love that shit. Become a quitter, pay the price.

The real question is: WHAT IS THE GOOD ENDING?

How about a Game of Thrones thread? Even though the season is almost done with three(?) episodes left, there's still a lot to be done.

Favorite characters? Spot-on actors/actresses?

I haven't read the books yet, I plan to after this season. But I'm a fan of Daenerys, there's something about her that I find more compelling than other characters. I know a lot of people don't really like her actress but I'll chalk that up to how she's written.

I also love the Theon arc this season. Some of the most powerful moments of Season 2. They also need to show more of Stannis.

Hey /tvav/,

I'm a little curious, what do you guys think of GamerGate?

As someone who's been intermittently visiting 99chan for a good number of years, I'd just like to hear some opinions from the vidya crowd here as I know 99chan generally seems to be very closed off from happenings elsewhere on the internet.

Let me just say, I don't wish to bring any trouble here or make this a place to discuss the controversy, we already have our place for that. But I'd just like to hear what you think about it from what you've observed so far.

If you think this thread doesn't belong here, please inform me and I'll delete it. I do apologise as I don't frequent this particular board and I'm unfamiliar with it's culture.

That's probably why I got so long-winded about this. It's rare for people being taken advantage of to fight back, and for the takers to be caught red-handed. So I just hate it when some "I want to matter" "activists" try to turn it into a gender war fustercluck.

oh boy here we go
As somebody who used to be extremely active when it came to GamerGate, when it actually got down to getting shit done via rapid firing e-mails to sponsors, it actually worked reasonably well. Gawker Media's Kotaku now barely has any sponsors straggling on the ground.

The big problem from what I could tell is that with GamerGate, everything was obviously taken straight from 4/8chans each and own /v/ and /pol/s. Which meant also spreading the godawful content inalienable from imageboards, like posters constantly taking random Twitter screencaps with 'SJWS/PCUNTS/niGGers BTFO' drowning out actual messages to email websites and actually get the message known to more than jus 4/8chan.
Reddit's own /r/KotakuInAction (what an original name) seems to be constantly be stuck with eternal infighting and facebook-tier memes, so I just avoided that shithole like the plague.

8chan's own user created GamerGate-related boards (ex. /burgers/-pre purge, /gg/, /gamergate/, /gamergatehq/, /ggrevolt/) are like that subreddit, but minus the Facebook memes and even more retarded infighting from Board Owners and Tripfags.

Twitter is especially horrible, given its the hotbed for braindead eCeleb-worshipping idiots and their masters to mindlessly spout even the smallest of rumours.

Several fucktarded eCelebs grew in popularity on youtube, keeping their 15 minutes of fame and cashing in on drooling shitheads by constantly opening Patreon accounts in order to take as much money as possible.

tl;dr, nobody could take the bandwagoneers and past/current drama from GamerGate

What do you guys think? I haven't played DOA since 3, so I'm a bit rusty. The graphics weren't as good as I expected, and the stages aren't multi-tiered, but overall I think it's pretty good
>> No. 683
Between the PC port being based on the PS3 version which means characters don't look quite as good and the stages look like ass, missing stages, lackluster input support, no online for 3 months, and the company's frankly absurd stance on modding, this one's a miss. PC doesn't get many fightans, but that's no excuse to put out stuff like this at this high a price point.

OP here, I'll have to agree with you there. I was excited for a few days at first, but then I did some research. This feels like a beta
