Hey guys,

I know in the past the rule was we didn't mention users in the title of the lounge, but hey, I guess all things change.

Rules:

1. No Flaming. Ribbing and jokes between friends will be allowed, but please keep all discussion civilized.

2. No politics, and no religion, there are appropriate forums for those discussions.

Why do I have some porn magazine as my related product? And before someone says it, no I don't look at porn.

Do people still buy porn mags?

I remember when I was a kid, I found my dads stash. He use to hide it at the back of the toilet.

Really old porn mags, 1970-80's. Perms. Bushes etc....

He must have been reading the articles.

@techhog89 didn't emgesp once said a long time ago that the Switch would stop selling because of Red Dead Redemption 2? All because GTA5 is still selling, when obviously, GTA 5 is selling because if online multiplayer, and laughed as well called us names for thinking that Pokemon and Smash wouldn't sell?

Never got into Porn mags nor those Playboys either. And of course we know you don't look at'em, I mean, who does really?

I'm not tired of them, they don't put efforts on them. I do like those Media Create threads, Cows can't stand Nintendo taking all the wealth & glory :P

The Orville got me surprisingly hooked @nintendoboy16. Didn't McFarlane pitch it as a new Star Trek, but got turned down and did his own thing? It can be a little too silly on occasion, but it's definitely a good sci-fi show. Much better than Star Trek's recent outing, but Picard's new show may change that.

@emgesp

I don't think he quite said anything like that; just that Switch would stop selling after *insert next major Nintendo game here*, probably made the claim that Smash wouldn't be a system seller like everyone in his camp did (ha), and still insists that Switch will never pass 45 million sold.

I'm not a trekkie, but damn Seth McFarlane has a huge hit with the Orville.

I was kinda surprised. Watched it for shits-and-giggles, but actually enjoyed it. Even the first episode of S2 was great, with Bortus heading home for his yearly urination... Just how they came up with that, I have no idea lol.

@lundy86_4: I've heard that it was. And it's basically the KOTOR II of Star Trek in how it deconstructs that franchise, except that Seth is a huge sci-fi fan and even got Star Trek actors on his cartoons. Hell, I just watched the episode directed by Jonathan Frakes.

Super Dave and Mean Gene were two massive parts of my childhood. I was utterly heart broken to hear they had passed. I've never met them, but this stings.

I'd say Deep Space 9 was the KOTOR II of Star Trek.

The problem with the prior shows (and consequently after) it's about humanity being challenged. But the crew characters themselves are always, or very close to perfect, being the ones doing the judging, typically with a warp up at the end summarizing it all.

Deep Space 9 compared to these show, has bias, crooked, arrogant, hate-filled characters. It's a catalogue of flawed individuals being challenged, not just by by external but internal challenges. That's just inherently more interesting, leading to better TV.

How many of the main crew of TNG were actually that memorable outside of Picard, Q and Data? Q himself being a court-jester antagonist.

The antagonists as well are also wholly different from the norm.

In Star Trek: Discovery it's right-wing Trump Voters, thinly veiled as Klingons. The problem here isn't that it attacks right-wing voters, it's that those are easy targets, and it's done as subtle as a brick with easy answers. It's boring, and there is nothing interesting about them in the slightest and just doing a real world comparison by default, doesn't make good sci-fi. You have to actually do something of value with it.

-

Compare that to Deep Space 9, the Dominion are essentially Nazi's.

But... They themselves were persecuted to the point of excitation, that made them xenophobic, isolationists. They have an understandable motivation that made them this way.

Likewise, everyone within their empire is a victim.

The Jem Hadar are killing machines. But they are designed that way, with a short life-span deliberately addicated to a drug to control them like an animal. Designed to kill, then die.

The Vorta act as politicians, and we get a back-story of how they use to monkeys that saved the life of a changling, rewarded for serving them, but generically engineers to see them as god, removing personality traits not useful, like vision.

Loading Video...

The Cardassians who jump aboard, themselves Nazi's (more or less), end up being conquered, turning into a rebellion as the Bajorans did against them.

Loading Video...

Instead of a villain of the week who comes in and blows stuff up, the Dominion are mentioned seasons in advance off-hand, make an announcement, warning The Federation to stay-out, slowly come over the worm-hole to make political gains, and eventually attack them when they are incited, the Federation making the first move.

Deep Space 9 handled everything with complexity and managed to humanize the antagonists just as much as the protagonists. Where as in other Star Trek shows, the Federation has abit of a superiority complex, which is exactly what Gene R wanted, and was sort of worse for it.

Basically, Deep Space 9 is really, really, really, really good.

Apart from the PS2 fire-cave end, that was shit.

Haven’t played God of War yet, but Spider-man is fun. First time, in a long time, I’m interested in the story. Brings me back to my childhood.

I'm impressed with the free games on the epic games store. Subnautica, super meat boy, and now what remains of Edith Finch. They aren't playing around!

You are like the only person who I think has ever said that. A lot of the rangers were honestly not very happy with their role. They did a great thing for the community, but I could definitely understand how they felt underappreciated.

Wait, the whole "Ranger" title wasn't the best for others? I had no idea, I used to see them helping out and everything else but never knew it was underappreciated. But since it's 2019, I think it could work for if giving the chance and try to improve the title would be something to consider but that's my opinion though.
