@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...

@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.

I haven't seen this movie in theaters yet but I really wanna see it. This movie from what I heard makes many video game references and seems to aim more at the gamer audience.

What do you guys think of the movie? Whether you have seen it or not.

I saw it, I am a hardcore Halo gamer, and I hated the movie. The story was great but the editing got to the point where it just got annoying or made no sense. A lot of the scenes were confusing and made absolutely no sense whatsoever. I give it a 2.5/5 stars.

I enjoyed the comic books, but I have no idea if it translates that well into a film. I haven't seen it because I don't think it's out here.

It seems a little too hipster geek for my taste. Though I may see it if my friends say it is good or something. Never really got the books too much.

I also don't feel Michael Cera was a very good choice for the lead, he can really only play one type of character...

I think it would probably work better as a cartoon or something instead of a film.

True, but then they probably would have ****ed up the voice acting or not bothered at all with the animation

Am I the only one who actually loved the movie? Well probably cause I'm all nerdy when it comes to games. Also, I didn't think Cera was that bad. This was one of the times when he tried a very different role then he's used to.

He's not playing a social akward teenager, in fact, he is also known for having multiple ex-girlfriends. So it was a bit of a different role then he is used to.

Today I actually went to powell's and saw all 6 volumes of scott pilgrim on the shelf. I wanted to get them so badly! Oh well, I'll have amazon do the work smile.gif

Holy shit this film was brilliant, I just got back from seeing it and I loved it,

Michael Cera was very funny as the lead and all the video game references were fun to figure out but also

THAT IS HOW YOU ****ING DO ACTION SCENES

Yeah, he still is, in a way. He's emotionally retarded. He's awkwardly trying to woo the girl (wtf was her name again? Ramona?) like he always does. He's so retarded he's fake-dating a girl to seem not out of place. But he still is.

There were probably only two or three things I liked about this movie. Firstly, the minor characters (namely, the evil exes) were actually interesting and funny. Some of them, anyways. I don't remember anything about the first ex, but the Chris Evans action star and the Vegan Psychic were very funny and good. The way they portrayed the gay guy was refreshing, in that he wasn't totally flaming and in love with the main guy, and lastly, the effects.

The main cast was awful. Michael Cera does what he always does. Boring. The Ramona girl has no personality and seems so bored, but not in a good way, it's like the actress herself was just bored with the movie. The first half hour is totally plot-driven and yet, ironically, it makes no sense. He's also a complete freaking idiot. He has the choice between a 17 year old (although the actress is like 25) cute Asian girl, who is completely in love with him, willing to do anything for him. And then he has the choice of this average looking American girl who changes her hair color changed every week and a half. She has no personality and is completely aloof from everything.

Once the League is introduced though, it gets more tolerable. Again, the Exes are cool and actually interesting. But the way they die makes no sense. I get they're appealing to a hipster/gamer crowd, but even still, try and at least make sense with your plot. It's like this is some alternate reality where when people die, they turn into coins. One person kind of points it out, and nobody questions it.

I decided to turn my brain off entirely after that, and when it got to the climax, it was decent. The effects were nice, but still, the story made no sense. Ramona goes back to one of the evil exes, and they don't even explain why. By the end of the movie they must have realized "Oh crap, we need a reason for why she left him" so they made her have a hole in the back of her head like the Deus Ex Matrixna.


I'd give this movie a 4/10, and that's me turning my brain off and being generous. If I had to actually pay to see that movie, I'd have felt ripped off.

I agree with you on that, the first half hour is just a bunch of jump-cuts , but then it picks up

Part of the blandness for the characters stems from the comic books I believe

Hah, I would've ddone that... if any of the shops here had manga sections...

All they have is half a shelf entitled "Graphic Novels" that include about 5-6 DC/Marvel comics and then scott pilgrim...

Well there is one specialist comic shop that has Manga and anime, but it's only whats super-mega-popular, all it has is Naruto, Bleach and Fruits Basket, not to mention it's ridiculously overpriced

33 euro for one volume of any anime, ridiculous.

I gotta get me back to London, 3 for 2, 6 pounds a book, and they had everything...
