Jun 2, 2015I'll try to post sometime after work today or tomorrow.Posted in: Mafia
Jun 1, 2015I was aware of this, for the record. I was only saying that it was obvious that the more modern interpretations of the post-apocalyptic wasteland (such as the ones seen in the Fallout installments and Bonerlands) were prevalent in this script when compared to the first three Mad Max movies.Posted in: Movies

May 31, 2015Honestly, I loved this movie so much better than the original trilogy.Posted in: Movies
Mad Max 1 took entirely too long to set up. Once it got rolling, it was over within 15-20 minutes.
Mad Max 2 was inarguably the best of the original trilogy. The plot, the portrayal of Max, the desert wasteland, and the final battle were all great, and actually hinted at how Fury Road was going to play out, IMO. The writers for MMFR clearly took a lot of elements from this particular installation of the series simply because it was the best of them.
Mad Max 3 felt very much like the "Return of the Jedi" or "Temple of Doom" of the series. I think anyone who's seen it can understand what I mean by that.
This one, however, was pretty much all action with a dash of politics. They were very quickly able to show the hierarchy of the Citadel and why we should care about it. (Props to the casting director who chose the villain from Mad Max 1 to portray the villain in Fury Road.) The action sequences felt very "Twisted Metal", which is one of my favorite game series, so it gets my stamp of approval for that. The writers also very clearly took inspiration from the Fallout series and the Bonerlands (not changing that spelling) games. (They even made a shout-out to the original Fallout with "Barry" and "Larry"!) I thought their plan was a little far-fetched as far as how they overcame the situation (if you've seen it, you know what I mean - if you haven't, there are no spoilers here) but they didn't have much room to work with at that point, so I'm unsurprised. I also thought that the war musicians were an awesome and necessary touch for the war party.
One thing I didn't understand is the relationship between the Citadel and the guy with the stumps for feet. Did they both have a vested interest in Furiosa, or what?
Either way, I think this movie was awesome and I'm glad that I predicted this would be a good year for movies after the last two years fell short of my expectations (sans Guardians, but that's a given).

I don't read Proph as very confident or fluid at all, right now. Up until his " " to me just now, he's been absolutely paralyzed insofar as interacting with me meaningfully has gone. And that feign of an attempt at townie emotion came entirely too late to be a genuine reaction.
I reserve the right to update this post in two hours, but I have not gotten this impression from him at all so far.
Are we reading the same game, then?
Quote from DanteRossetti »@Iso: From your desire that others attack Proph, does that mean you still think it is preferable to gang up people and kill them quickly rather than allow for gradual accumulation? How would you feel about the Town's chances if people did not flat-out sheep you and just attacked who they thought was most scummy?
I've already stated that I don't care how people attack as long as they're killing people I'm scumreading.
Quote from Prophylaxis »@Iso: I'm not really interested in interacting with you right now. Maybe more so once I reread and get more involved in this game, but as of now you're hitting me for pitiful damage and if other players start attacking me then I can obvtown myself at the drop of a hat (heck, I've already done so, you're either scum who wants to get rid of me or town who has their blinders on). I have no idea why you're so bent on killing me when you know that post count is the most accurate way to read me and you've made poor attempts to actually point out why you think I'm scum (do you really expect me to respond to a "hm"?). I don't like to use "you should know this!" arguments as they don't work most of the time, but you're painfully wrong this game with regards to my alignment.
You haven't obvtowned yourself in the slightest. I've already addressed the point regarding your postcount; did you choose to ignore it? I'm bent on killing you because you're scum - that should be obvious. The tone in this post reads all like an entirely false bravado and your exaggerated descriptors belie your claimed intent.
Quote from Megiddo »^ see this is a townproph post
1. clearly believes he is town
2. actually standing up to somebody who is scumreading him
3. using bad arguments and expecting us to believe them
all of the elements are there.
1. That's not clear to me at all. It looks like he mustered up enough courage to talk back but it doesn't look like he believes it at all. Tell me how you get that impression from his post.
2. Now that he's been called out and the spotlight is on him, he knows he has to or he's going to die.
3. I can't remember the last time townProph made an intentionally bad argument.
Since when do you misread Pr-
I get it.
You're his buddy.
Good to know.
Quote from RelmArrowny »@Everyone
I want you all to indulge me for a post: could you list out the players you either want to attack or see lynched, and distribute 10 points among the list based on the strength of your conviction? no more than 6 points for any one player, please.
Proph - 3
Bur - 3
hans - 3
Cythare - 1
Those are weighted, btw.

Because I can pretty much guarantee Proph is scum, whereas I have no such read on Huntzilla.
@DCIII: Relm pretty much covered it (thank you for not making me have to explain something that shoud be painfully obvious, btw - I do appreciate it), and as I said, I might case Proph within the next week or so.
I don't read Proph as very confident or fluid at all, right now. Up until his " " to me just now, he's been abdolutely paralyzed insofar as interacting with me meaningfully has gone. And that feign of an attempt at townie emotion came entirely too late to be a genuine reaction.
May 30, 2015don't tase my orochi, broPosted in: Mafia
I'm not really concerned about Huntz at this point in time.

May 30, 2015Everyone should gangbang Proph with me. I'll probably case him within a week from now if I find the time/motivation.Posted in: Mafia
But really, you all should sheep me and save me the effort.
May 30, 2015Ah, I think I had mild suspicion of Cantrip, too. He feels off.Posted in: Mafia
