  1. Is there logic to which card Arnim copies, or is it random? Playing him in a lane with Wong and Black Panther seems risky if you could end up with two Wongs.
  2. Does the dog talk

    Anime

    Just watched the first ep of the new show. It looks much better than I've come to expect from 3D anime. I suspect some of the scenes must have been motion-captured, it looks so damn smooth. In the original anime the nature of the world and the population's relationship with "lost technology" was only slowly revealed over the course of the series, so it's interesting that they've front-loaded the backstory this time around. The very first scene explains the seedships, Vash & Knives, so the world is going to be a little less mysterious but I suppose the origin story trope is pretty tired these days. Gutted that they seem to have dropped Milly and made Meryl the kouhai this time around. Hopefully we still get some version of Wolfwood, and the Gung-Ho Guns. It's a strong first episode, different but familiar, with the Humanoid Typhoon goofing off while trying to save the town from a comically reckless villain.

    Anime

    Confession time. I once made an anime music video using footage from Trigun. For Linkin Park's One Step Closer.
  5. This has been my obsession since I received it from Santa. Finally managed a win tonight, after many, many deaths. I've started poking around the wiki, looks like there's tons of stuff I haven't found yet.
  6. Patch last night. Didn't know about any of this until I noticed the Nova in my hand had 1 less power than usual, the devs really need to improve the in-game messaging. https://marvelsnapzone.com/marvel-snap-january-10-2023-patch-notes/
  7. I really struggled with White Noise. Perhaps it didn't help that I was watching it on NYE after a bottle of wine, but so much of the film felt like obscure metaphor, it made me feel stupid. It was tonally all over the place; part sci-fi horror, part family drama, part roadtrip comedy.
  8. I've been tryng to play Midnight Suns on the Deck, and while performance has been okay, I was encountering occasional black screen crashes. Advice on reddit suggested I try installing CryoUtilities, and that seems to have stabilised things for me, touch wood. I was sceptical at first that tweaks to the swap config would reducing crashing, but there you go.
  9. IT'S HAPPENING! My santa has been incredibly generous this year, but I have no idea how they knew about my secret love for catgirl anime visual novels??! I thought I'd kept that hidden well enough, but I'll be trying out "Fluffy Store" first! Many thanks, you cheeky scamp!
  10. It's pretty good for your collector rank, I'm at 1500 and my Spectrum deck is very similar. The only card there that doesn't really fit is Agent 13. At 537 you should have Ebony Maw, I think? It's a better fit for the deck because it has an ongoing ability, but can be a little tricky to play effectively with its restrictions.
  11. Sorted. Thanks for organising this, JPR.
  12. ✅ Original science fiction movie ✅ Sam Raimi ✅ Adam Driver ✅ T-Rex ✅ Velociraptors ❌ ???
  13. You've answered a question for me, thanks. After hearing The Traitors described by my wife I'd wondered if it was some scum-like. I'm not sure what you mean when you say it has "no rules" though?
  14. I've pinned a card that requires 6000 tokens, but I only have 2000. I got 100 from a cache yesterday, seems like it would take forever to earn the 4000 more I need. EDIT: just looked up the stats, 25% of 100 tokens in a cache means I'd have to open an average of 160 caches!
  15. I've not played either, but I noticed this in my RPS feed today: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/if-you-get-one-spider-man-game-on-pc-get-marvels-spider-man-miles-morales
  16. That's not just a disappointing sentiment, it's also objectively incorrect. I might not know my Evees from my EVs, but even I know that there are new features. Bank, Home, Go, have all changed what's possible since the days of using a link cable in a playground.
  17. Sorry for asking I wasn't sure, with the advent of online gaming, paid subscription accounts, and mobile gaming, what to expect. Cleary fan attitudes haven't moved on in a quarter of a century.
  18. Do you need two Switches to do trading locally? My kids have asked for Pokémon this year, but we only have a single console.
  19. I feel bad about this interaction now.
  20. Since starting this new season, I've found myself enjoying this a lot more. Helps that I'm winning more often than not, although I'm sure that'll change soon enough. Here's my current favourite deck, requiring no Pool 3 cards. It's a fairly standard "destroy" deck with a few tweaks of my own. You'd think that Squirrel Girl wouldn't fit alongside Killmonger, but she pairs well enough with Bishop, Carnage, and Nova to merit her inclusion. She's also useful for establishing presence in lanes with effects that make it difficult to play in directly. Due to the focus on destroying cards, Warpath is very strong if you can keep one lane empty, which is also why I've thrown in Klaw, with his ability to assist from a neighbouring lane. Hulk might not be very inspiring, but at least he's consistent, and there aren't really any other 6 drops available to me that would be a stronger choice with the effects in this deck. If it has one problem, it's that it has a slightly wonky cost curve, ocassionally proving difficult to make efficient plays on turn 4. I'm thinking of swapping one of the 3 drops (Bishop, most likely) for a 2, but haven't found a candidate I like yet. # (1) Squirrel Girl # (1) Nova # (2) Bucky Barnes # (2) Carnage # (2) Wolverine # (3) Bishop # (3) Killmonger # (3) Sabretooth # (3) Deathlok # (4) Warpath # (5) Klaw # (6) Hulk # eyJDYXJkcyI6W3siQ2FyZERlZklkIjoiTm92YSJ9LHsiQ2FyZERlZklkIjoiQ2FybmFnZSJ9LHsiQ2FyZERlZklkIjoiV29sdmVyaW5lIn0seyJDYXJkRGVmSWQiOiJEZWF0aGxvayJ9LHsiQ2FyZERlZklkIjoiS2xhdyJ9LHsiQ2FyZERlZklkIjoiQnVja3lCYXJuZXMifSx7IkNhcmREZWZJZCI6IktpbGxtb25nZXIifSx7IkNhcmREZWZJZCI6IlNhYnJldG9vdGgifSx7IkNhcmREZWZJZCI6IldhcnBhdGgifSx7IkNhcmREZWZJZCI6IkJpc2hvcCJ9LHsiQ2FyZERlZklkIjoiU3F1aXJyZWxHaXJsIn0seyJDYXJkRGVmSWQiOiJIdWxrIn1dfQ== # # To use this deck, copy it to your clipboard and paste it from the deck editing menu in Snap.

    Neon City

    Were you high though?
  22. I've started to encounter pool 3 players at collection rank 450, despite being over 25 levels away from getting any pool 3 cards. That seems somewhat unfair.
  23. Losing a dozen games in a row due to RNG bullshit or guessing 50/50 plays wrong would be frustrating in any game, but there's something about losing in Snap that makes me especially salty. I've been stuck in the low 40s for over a week now, I'm not sure I have what it takes to push into the higher ranks.
