Thread Now that's almost been two years since Endgame, do you think Thanos has joined the status of iconic villain like Darth Vader and Joker ?
Gonna be honest, I couldn't take Thanos seriously. Like he didn't feel like a threat, even though logically watching those two movies he should have. Especially after everything he did. I'm thinking his character didn't resonate with me much. With that said, he's pretty iconic, but dunno if he's in their tier.

Thread Guardian: Majority of Europeans fear Biden unable to fix 'broken' US
Basically we'd need a Congress that's ready and willing to curb a president. Unfortunately, that doesn't really happen. I'm cautiously optimistic only in the instance that the older gen is leaving. Not to say that the new ones are always better, but more that Congress seems to be getting more vocal. And it does help that atleast now, McConnell can't block everything. We'll now get to vote on more legislation. Ultimately, the next 2 years will be a gauge for the next 4. And well, trump throughly blew up the Republicans. So i wanna see if there is any lasting damage.

Thread Guardian: Majority of Europeans fear Biden unable to fix 'broken' US
Would require congress ratification for big stuff, and even then another president could try to executive order out. Now congress would need to challenge this, which would make it go to the supreme court to finally lay out congressional and presidential powers in these instances. The closest was with Carter and Taiwan, but Congress didn't really push. And tried to get the supreme court to deal with it instead of them. Now if it's just executive orders. Those afaik can just be overturned by new presidents. Which would make more sense long term to go the congress route, but that takes time and divided congress makes it harder.

That's atleast pretty good, I was scared you had like weekly options that were otm. With spreads, you need to make sure you have enough money to buy back the options. If you leave them to far gone, you can end up losing more because you couldn't execute them. I can't really tell you to sell or not cause even right now i'm not sure if this holds. I'm cautiously a bear, pending tommorrow's price action. You can hold those next week options to see if there is a follow through to the down side, or a move higher.

The issue with discord is, fomo may hit you harder there. Which could get you into poor positions in stocks. So it's probably not the best play for newer traders, unless there is emphasis on learning. Well finance and tech are bear flagging, so there is a set up for lower. My only issue with this is if they try to double bottom it, which would be around here. If we break the low of the day....then probably go lower.

Did i say that we're a monolith? My personal opinion is that I'm not in favor of her and know others that are worried about her background.I mean....looking at the climate now with the call for police reform, and then look at her record as attorney general. It's one of the main reasons i do not think she will be a good pick, especially since we already know biden is already iffy on the subject. Things like how her office responded with overcrowding in ca jails. They mention a loss in labor, she claims she wasn't aware of that. If true...that's also not a good look. Also with how her office dealt with wrongfully convicted people's appeals. Daniel Larson's case in particular, but not something new for her office. Her appeal after a judge deemed the death penalty unconstitutional. Which...she didn't have to do. Then there was the resistance to hold police accountable for shootings. I'm not saying she's a horrible person, and hasn't done any type of reform. As that would be a lie. However, things like the above make me less than willing to trust her. End of the day, she isn't my first choice. But if selected, i will support the ticket. Is that enough of an explanation for you?

Thread In Defense of Looting
Reading this, i think it's not that great. There is a large ass difference by who gets looted. It makes the assumption that those that are only hurt are the big corporations. Ie that target. It becomes more complicated when those businesses that are hit are minority own, where some cannot return after such an event. These small business owners do understand.....but that doesn't stop them from being devastated. Hell, some are upset that the police didn't protect their stores but instead protected ones like target. For example, those tweets on businesses supporting the protest....they get the anger and frustration. But they still fear/worry about getting hit. Why else would they board up their places and even some writed black owned businesses? The issue comes when those that are hurt, are their own community. Honestly, this is reminding me of what happened during the 1977 nyc blackout. The anger was/is justified, but some of it got directed onto their own.

It kinda is if the tv shows are at the mercy of the movies. It would i believe creatively box them in. I kinda like each plaform exploring different things. As for the logo, it's a thing woth the animated movies. Which is why i don't believe it's a signal for a connect universe.

Hmmm that logo is pretty much used in all DC media. Exception may be for the CW shows, haven't watched them in a bit. Also, why would connecting them to the movies make them successful? Could be funny if they merge everything with a crisis event. But cw is already on that. So pretty much unlikely.

Thread So square can make drastic changes to FF7 in the remake but couldn't be bothered to not make Barrett an ignorant racist caricature? (Read Threadmarks)
Barret's characterization is complicated for me. Initially I thought they'd go right back and do the same bs from the og. And well i was partially right. The voice direction for Barret...is well something else. They ham it up to the nth degree, when well it's unnecessary. Yet at the same time that I had these issues, I fell in love with him during the course of the game. To the point I'm excited to see how they do his backstory. Honestly, besides Tifa he was the most relatable character to me. And honestly his growth during the game was handled very well. Tho, it's his interactions with his daughter that truely sold me. They were nothing but heart warming. Basically, yes alot of good was done with Barret's character, but at the same time it doesn't erase some of his more problematic aspects of it. Even though i love him in the remake.

The fact that while the S&P 500 has continued to make new all time highs this year, the Small caps (Russell 2000) has visibly lagged behind this move. Not even getting close to making it to ath. Then you have the banking sector also not confirming the move in the s&p. Basically there are signs that things are not well. Do i think things will got to shit in the immediate?

I want this to continue as a series, this has easily become one of my favorite games. But i really hope they take a look at that character design. Like even if they were trying to go for sexy. They failed, as some of the women look comical, if not just creepy.

If it helps, player characters can wear them too. That said she gets a new outfit later that i love. Ff14 is actually pretty great when it comes to outfits. With only a couple misses i can think of.

I mean it's a final fantasy game, most of the outfits are not conducive to the jobs. I think at most in ff14 only the tanks and dragoons actually have armor suited for their jobs. With monks, they basically just wear a version of shorts and a tee shirt. Besides, flowing fabric in hand to hand combat isn't actually a new thing. Hell even with some sword play. But like you said, it's up to an individual person's taste. And for me it's a great outfit.

God when i played the beta or whatever a few months ago, i couldn't keep a straight face. I'm like seriously, everyone else has these awesome outfits, but this chick is wearing a pretty tight ass dress with her breasts hanging out. That said....I'm totally hooked on this game.

I wonder. I think that if her personality were different, or say more like how she was in the prologue of the game. I probably would not have been able to like her look. But like Aexact said, I think with Velvet they went with the sexy villain look with her. It's kind of interesting when i think about it.

Velvet is in a weird place for me. I don't actually mind her rags look. I wonder if it's just a case of me loving her characterization so much that i was able to overlook her appearance. To the point it kinda suits her in a way.

The apathy comes from not having to deal with many of the issues that other minority groups have to deal with. They have been catered to, so much it hard to actually have empathy for other peoples suffering.

The dog piling is basically because they can't empathize. They see pages of it, but still continue to do it, without truly thinking about what's being said. I imagine it's a defensive measure, that becomes offensive. After all, mention how something is problematic that they like and people will take it as an attack on them.

Which is freakin annoying. So what if your chromosomes say something, it's not like you can see them. As an intersex person, do you find the image offensive personally, or only offensive in how it can be used to harm transwomen? This is ofcourse without the context of CDPRs track record.

I think the main issue is just the style for final fantasy. Even many of the guys tend to be on the slim side with only a hand full on the larger side. I guess you could say they use a default anime look. Where most characters except for some extremes are basically models, yet still manage to be crazy strong.

Legit thought she was cute during the presentation. Now the drawings of her, I personally have no issue, but I do know that these things can go from nice to creepy in an instant. Like the images in the op are harmless, but i can only guess how far it's been taken.It's because of her appearance on stage during the conference.

Okay so , we already have a basic idea of what Tifa is gonna look like. She has been in other media besides her original appearance. So don't expect her boob monster version. I won't lie and say that I'm not curious at all of the minor changes. Like I have to admit it's weird that we have seen the other mains, except for Tifa. As for Jessie, it's pretty understandable why you don't see her with breast plates in the original is because of the game she is in. She is an extremely minor character and in an early ps1 title. You aren't gonna see that much detail on character that legit dies in like the first 30 min. As for the fact that she's in a breast plate is automatically seen as a negative, I don't personally agree with that. Seems a bit too black and white for taste. And in this case, I think she looks perfectly fine.

Yeah i agree her previous costume was much better. But this one kinda won me over. I guess for me i never saw anything sexual or sexy about this scene. It was just batgirl doing therapy like everyone else. Sex appeal was furthest from my mind because i know how and why she was shot. I basically had to get in the mindset of a person that would be able to think what she's doing is sexy. When in truth it's horrifying. Also the nine panel grid was used for everyone that talked about their issues. Tho some you see them walk out the session. Was that shot of Lois when she was in sleep wear?

I believe it has to do with how she is posed and the framing of it.

I can understand the 2nd to last panel tho, I suppose they didn't need to show her standing up and focusing on her lower body.

What would serialization for a man be then? The best I can think of is Dick Grayson. And with the knowledge that dick physics won't be a thing, cause I gotta say, that would be unattractive at least to me.I think the issue is that some people believe that women shouldn't/wouldn't sexualize other women, and if they do it's due to guys. That's at least the feel I get here. Especially when you see comments on anime designs made by women.

Ehh it depends, some either show up in bad faith, others probably don't articulate themselves properly. I admit, I'm pretty bad a writing. For example from what i've read of this thread breast armor seems to be a negative in a lot of peoples column. Yet for me it's pretty much a grey area, where it can be tastefully done and I have no issues with it. Take Wonder Woman, she has breast armor, and I've seen backlash for it in the movies and recent comics. Yet personally i view it as tasteful, and see no wrong in it at all. Then take Altria from Fate Grand Order, her breasts just hang all out, and it just makes me feel uncomfortable.

I'm not sure how many follow comics, but I wanted people's thought's on the recent backlash regarding Batgirl in the Hero's in Crisis series. In Hero's in Crisis you see many of DC's hero's and some villains, go into a confession like area where they discuss various trauma's they have experienced. The issue is that some people see the below image as being inappropriately sexual as she is showing her bullet wounds. These being the wounds that Joker caused when he shot her and left her disabled for many years in the comics. Below is just a reference of how she looked when her new costume was revealed. Some have stated it wasn't so much the costume, but the style of the artist. I will admit, personally I don't see it. And it didn't even cross my mind as sexual in any way.

Are they truly hero's tho? They only received this power, as a price to have their wishes fulfilled. In truth, they basically suffered a monkey paw like situation, as most of their wishes backfired. Sure they may save people, but the main thing is that they basically sold their souls and the price is that they have to fight. I think they only one that might be described as a hero was Madoka herself.

Depends on the game really and your interests. I currently play Dx2, which is a gacha for the SMT series. It basically scratches that itch for more smt while waiting for SMTV. The other is Fate Grand Order, which i started recently. And I legit play it for the story, and the combat aspects. It helps that it has fairly frequent events that they put more effort into then some other games. I gotta say, I'm enjoying they hell out of these games.Sony is making bank from FGO. It helps that they generally put more effort in to their gacha then other companies do.

Well Altria doesn't always look like that. You could have chosen her armor version. Besides FGO basically goes out of its way to do that to most of the characters. It's basically how that game survives. She's like Mordred. Has both an armored look, and one without.

It was more in the sense that why certain aspects, ie the heels would prevent them from playing. Especially since they aren't seen much.

Does it matter that they are in high heels? Looking at the gameplay it doesn't seem to be that noticeable based on locations i've seen. There is usually some type of object blocks the view of their legs. With it only really being seen during the battles, however even then it's not the focus. Unless you are just actively looking at their feet when fighting. I would say from what I've seen it would have been nice to see more body types for the women. Additionally, I don't believe "boob armor" is inherently a bad thing.
