Sorry, can't answer because of the way you structured your post. Too difficult.

You take one sentence, or a group of sentences, or a paragraph and reply to that. Then move on to the next. How is that difficult? You're the one who crafted a word-salad of thoughts. I was only addressing each at face value.

El Pit wrote on May 21, 2019, 02:45:
But you're wrong in many points and you ignore in some parts what I have already written and what is shown in the series itself (like "he sees the present". Nope. He himself says it in the series: "I can only see THE PAST.")

Wrong! He repeatedly told individuals including his family members that his power isn't just limited to the past but the present:

Season 7, Episode 3: Bran (to Sansa): "It means I can see everything. Everything that's ever happened to everyone. Everything that's happening right now."

He wasn't talking in metaphorical terms either. This was a literal power he has. That's why no army will be able to defeat him because he has the ability to not only see their current movements but their plans in the past. When the battle at Winterfell happened, he wasn't warging to escape from the war. He was doing it to observe the battlefield so he can create a memory imprint of it (he is the keeper of Westeros' history) and also as a curiosity because he can. He was also keeping track of the Night King's movements.

At least, you liked it. To each their own. And this season of GoT was at least not as bad as Star Wars episodes I and VIII. This gives me some hope that D&D can offer a new SW trilogy that will be hopefully alright. Not great, but not as horrible as SW I and SW VIII.

I think a better comparison would be The Hobbit films. If that's the point you're trying to make.

love it or hate it, the good news from game of thrones is we're going to be deluged with expensively produced shows based on good books and stuff for the next two years while everyone tries to be the next game of thrones.

I guess The Witcher could work... But not at the GoT level. Other than that, not sure about any of the others, even LotR. Didn't read anything in that pile.

Why do you think it won't be at the Game of Thrones level? The books are ripe with intrigue between kings, assassinations, treachery etc. The biggest difference between the Witcher series and the GoT is that the Witcher focuses more on fewer characters, and fewer of them die (though there's no shortage of deaths in the Witcher books.)

It's entirely possible for Netflix to pull this off.

Agreed. The premise of the Witcher series is Geralt is a monster slayer. Sometimes those monsters turn out to be people, and sometimes those people are kings and the powerful.

WARNING: GOT SPOILERS!


El Pit wrote on May 20, 2019, 14:57:
Bran the Useless is the new king.

He is not useless. As Tyrion pointed out, more than anyone else in the World, Bran knows stories. He knows the world's history and can see the present. What army would ever go against a King who can control the minds of animals and people? Also, as King, his rule is nobler than Jon's because Bran has the one thing Jon doesn't have: ageless wisdom. It may be artificial since he effectively downloaded the history of the world from the previous 3ER, but all that history and knowledge has made Bran very wise beyond his years. Bran has demonstrated temperance even when faced with death.

El Pit wrote on May 20, 2019, 14:57:
Also: the Unsullied murder hundreds of people and get away free.

That was war, and had Jon not killed her they would have ended every remaining man, women, and child in Westeros and beyond who would have stood in her way. By stopping her reign before it truly blossomed, the Sullied no longer are held responsible for their actions.

Besides they were effectively pardoned when the council told them to go take land and build a house. Instead, they chose to leave Westeros and sail to Naath and defend Missandei's people.

El Pit wrote on May 20, 2019, 14:57:
Jon kills a mad tyrant and is an outcast.

Jaime Lannister killed the King to protect the people of King's Landing from wildfire as was branded a Kingslayer and an Oathbreaker. Despite his wealth as a Lannister, that name stuck with him for the rest of the life.

El Pit wrote on May 20, 2019, 14:57:
I think the new justice system in the six kingdoms is off to a great start!

Because ALL those people have seen their share of what war under an heir to a throne can do. They all saw the wisdom in Tyrion's words to elect a king so that no bloodline could own the throne. That, of course, is going to end in failure as a parliamentary form of government has never been successful. But it does show the evolution of Westeros from a pure monarchy to a parliamentary government.

El Pit wrote on May 20, 2019, 14:57:
Jesus... This final episode was better than the previous but still... Oh... my... god... Wall

I loved the way the lords and ladies reacted to the idea about democracy, though... Mwahaha

You really should stop using so many ellipses. It's quite unbecoming.


Covering so I don't accidentally spoil it for anyone.

I swear the shear number of averagely acted seasons wore you all down & like confused brainwashed hamsters y'all now don't know which way is up or how to feel.

Wait. What? You note you could not get into the first episode of GOT so you never bothered, and then immediately stated the sheer number of averagely acted seasons wore you down. So you're essentially saying you wasted your time watching a show you never had an affinity for? Why would anyone put themselves through that? If you don't like the show, then don't watch it. Just like if you don't like playing a video game anymore, stop playing it.

Does HBO Now (the internet version) allow you to watch all previous episodes of GoT? Anyone know?

I stopped watching after two seasons and eventually figured I'd just watch all of it once it was done. I guess it's time for me to go and catch up.

Yes. You can even subscribe to HBO through Amazon and make it part of your Amazon Prime TV collection. They also offer Showtime and CBS All Access.

NO SPOILERS: I liked the end of GOT in that it's not the way I expected, but more in the way real life operates, and that there is an ending and life moves on. Could the story continue? Sure. But it wouldn't necessarily be about the games of thrones nor a song about ice and fire.

Well, onward to WATCHMEN!

ENOUGH with the stereotyping and borderline racism! If you want to make a point, make it. But don't throw in "fat old white guys." That's spitefully ignorant BS.
I'll try to use small words... I was pointing out just how asinine it was for him to take a list of excellent reasons to question EGS and try to reduce them to 'scared old ball sacks and their icons'. If sarcasm to point out idiocy triggers you, I guess you're one of the folks that feels the need to picket comedians on college campuses? Why the devil didn't you feel the need to cry and scream ageism or sexism with the first post if you're that concerned with social mores?

You're deflecting. First, you're not funny. You knew exactly what you were doing when you chose those words. Second, I'm calling it out for what it is. It's on the same level when cartoonists used to depict black people. Racism is racism, and it's wrong, and I don't want to see it on Blue's News in ANY fashion. As I stated before if you're going to make a point, make it. But don't throw in borderline racist trash. If you still don't get the point then I'll be sure to block you, or you can block me (I don't care either way).

I've been having a lot of fun with Rage 2. I have a few friends playing Mordhau and while they say it's somewhat lacking in content, the gameplay is insanely fun.

I got Mordhau, some people I know got into it and love it; I figured I'd try it.

It's well done, but to me a little bare bones? It suffers from Battlefield-Nub syndrome as well, as the 64 player servers usually have one team playing the objectives and the other team clueless. It's still early, of course, maybe the player base will wise up a little.

That's server evolution. Eventually the vets of the server get a clue and switch to the other side upon a map change. As long as that pattern continues then one side remains in perpetual ignorance. It's a fascinating look into the organic nature of collective dynamics.

Worth repeating, actually everything you wrote is worth repeating but I wanted to put special emphasis on it here because this part has twisted up quite a few undies.
"Epic isn’t keeping exclusivity forever, usually just a year. In this way, EGS is being less douchey than the other stores. And yet, more than half the people on this board can’t get that through their fucking skulls, and act like EGS is doing something unheard of and unforgivable. While they ARE doing something unheard of, namely “taking less than half the cut everyone else does”, somehow that’s super fucking evil."

Steam takes 30% = good
Epic takes 12% = BAD

This must be the new math that everyone is talking about. :)

EGS exclusives, no perks for consumers, and a platform held together by duct tape and chewing gum = BAD

Please don't sugar coat what EGS truly is. It's not about benefiting consumers, it's about empowering publishers.

No point in having it, it's been cracked and on the torrent sites for a week now...hell, there's even smaller repacks of it already! They're only hurting themselves by keeping it.

It's been removed so your point is kind of moot now.

EGS hate bash party because EPIC did X where X this time is discounted a game too much.
So, enlighten me.... Are you an Epic fanboi, or just hate Gabe/Steam? Your constant trolling for the lolz every time Epic fucks something up is very confusing. Usually you're happy to take potshots at idiotic corporations regardless of who they are....
Sorry for your confusion. I also use Steam. I have a state of the art pc and installing multiple programs on it (ie launchers) does not scare me.
I am just glad to see someone going up against the monopoly that is Steam.

I don't agree with that, but I respect your point of view.

My biggest complaint against EGS is their exclusives. They claim it's good for consumers, but so far all it did was force people onto an inferior platform. Epic said their exclusives would benefit customer, yet I haven't seen any perks like charging $50 for games because the publisher gets a bigger cut (that might get me to buy from EGS). Even with the $10 discount, the publisher still makes more than on Steam. My auxiliary complaint against EGS is that it lacks 95% of the stuff Steam has. Eventually, EGS will catch up to Steam, but in the meantime, it's not a minimum viable platform. Epic shouldn't be forcing people to buy from a gaming store held together by duct tape and chewing gum.

Sounds to me like a different color store front does not matter to you.
My local Bodega was painted Egg Shell, when they repainted it 7 years ago they changed the color to Off White and I quit going there for several days. And now just recently they changed the exterior color to Ivory. eff those guys

But at least they had the infrastructure in place to paint it "Egg Shell." Epic is not in any position to paint their store "Egg Shell" until they get their walls up, and have running water and power. You know, a minimum viable store.
