  1. I will say that the beach fight scene was pretty cool, shades of Infinity and Civil War with superheroes fighting each other using their unique powers in interesting combos. The tech guy (didn't bother with the names) holding the dead GoT Stark with the cosmic strings down reminded me of Dr Strange and his fight with Thanos in IW.

    I now have a new appreciation for the friends who I've made sit through ludicrously long credits for a scene that means the square root of fuck all to them.

     

    Me watching the mid-credits scene:

    I had to read the wiki page and go "ohhhh" over some obscure hero that hasn't been introduced yet

    I don't believe that's an issue, the rate of new transactions is in some senses constrained by the properties of the network, but the crytographically-secured ledger is just a relatively small amount of data stored on (and distributed around) the computers involved.

     

     

    It's an issue when the gas/transaction fees goes up the bigger the blockchain is.

    just watched Ghostbusters: afterlife...it was exactly what i expected...and that was just what i wanted/needed! it was like hugging a marshmallow!

     

    Just watched this. Loved the scene in the supermarket... they were sooooo cute.

     

    As for the film, it was good. Not the best thing ever, not bad. I've never seen the 2016 Ghostbusters.

  5. I was initially pissed off that

     

    Spoiler

    all the rich and powerful got to escape, but when they landed I realised most of the survivors were old, effectively killing off their own survival in less than a generation.

     

    Which is exactly how the rich and powerful would probably act if space was limited.

     

  6. I watched it again and actually, it's not that bad. A solid 6. The music and fight scenes are trash - completely uninspired. But the social commentary (how we care more about feelings than facts for example) and the director's obvious dig at being pushed into a sequel and the open ripping into WB was pretty good.

     

    It also advances the Matrix timeline and universe as well, with some parts of the Machine world now wanting freedom from their rulers and being with humans instead. Something which, if you've seen the Animatrix, is what they originally wanted, but the humans were scared of.

     

    And Neo and Trinity having full control of how the Matrix works, is one step closer to more humans being freed and rebuilding themselves in the real world.

     

    Certainly a lot of scope for fan fiction to pick up on.

    For me it was entirely unfunny and just a little too depressing. Had to turn it off after 30 minutes. 

     

    It's like they couldn't have written it any better

    To me, the argument for NFT's in gaming boils down to that it would remove the platform/publisher from the equation...as long as the platform/publisher allowed themselves to removed from the equation.

     

    Of course, my math could be wrong.

     

    Headshot.

     

    The obvious point being, if they were OK with that, they would just implement user transferrable goods in their own marketplace, free from ever rising gas fees, and far cheaper to run and easier to monitor on their own centralised system. Cases of fraud and malpractice? Just ban them from the community.

    How interesting,you participatge in society.jpg

     

    don't bother regulating games via fixing predatory gambling loot boxes and stopping abusive practices - just stop playing them then they'll stop doing it!

     

    It's easy!

     

     

    Parents giving in to their children's peer pressure and giving them virtual currency to spend is much easier.

  10. It pisses me off that they are now bigger than Nintendo, who have spent their entire existence curating their content to make it suitable for children. Meanwhile, whilst Roblox's users are children, they just maximise profit out of them in whatever way possible.
