#393654 Captain Marvel *SPOILERS*

Posted by KhevaKins on 09 March 2019 - 08:12 AM

Who saw it? I did.

 

This one has the most plot holes out of any of these Marvel movies. Still very enjoyable. I would give it like a 7 to 7.5 because of the plot problems.

 

I felt the plot was very predictable, being able to clearly see the Kree were the ones to screw over Carol, and they were the ones controlling her powers with their limiter switch, not the one that gave her the powers.

Dr. Lawson/Mar-vel is trying to develop a Light Speed engine so the Skrulls can leave the Milky Way to get away from the Kree. But there is already plenty of factions and races that have FTL drives. Most of Guardians happens in the Andromeda Galaxy, the 1st closest to 'our' galaxy, the Milky Way. Yondu kidnaps Quill from Earth in 1988 and they end up in Andromeda, so there are already ships with the means to get from Galaxy to Galaxy. FTL engines don't appear to be in short supply, so why can't the Skrulls just get a ship that already has one? Also just a note, they only ever say 'Light Speed Engine', not 'Fast Than Light Speed Engine', so at Light Speed it would still take them 2.54 million years just to get to Andromeda. Andromeda also already had a Kree presence, so the Kree themselves have the means to get from Milky Way to Andromeda.

 

How did Dr. Lawson get the Tesseract. Ok, so maybe SHIELD let the USAF/NASA use the Tesseract during their joint Project: Pegasus. That makes sense. But presumably it would still be a highly valued and secured object, even if they didn't quite know what it was. How did Dr.Lawson manage to steal it? Not only that, but it had to of been missing for up to 6 years, where it was just hanging out in Lawson's orbiting Laboratory/Kree Space Cruiser.

 

The Supreme Intelligence. Before Carol meets the AI it is explained that the AI may appear in any form IT chooses. Why would the AI choose to take the form of Dr.Lawson during it's conversation with Carol? Surely if Supreme AI is trying to keep Carol under control they don't want her questioning her past too much. Why would the AI intentionally choose to show up as someone Carol isn't supposed to know? Maybe it was afraid of Carol piecing together her past through the recurring dreams she was having but shouldn't it of instead offered it's own false answers rather than intentionally keeping it a mystery? That would make Carol just look for answers?

 

Carol shoots one hole in the Skrull ship and the whole thing explodes. Must of shot it directly in the C4.

 

Skrulls are on Earth for like 1 day and in that time they naturally are able to not only find information painting SHIELD as an important organization, they also manage to locate, isolate, and take the form of Nick Fury's boss. In less than 24 hours. GG Skrulls, good work.

 

Ronan The Accuser. He is a part of 'the Accusers', so shouldn't he be 'Ronan A Accuser', not 'The Accuser', since there seems to be quite a few of them? Also, he all "We will be back for HER", then proceeds to presumably forget about Captain Marvel for fifteen before dying in a dance battle. Maybe it was on his TODO.

 

Ronan The Accuser uses Ballistic Missiles to level what looks like entire cities early in the movie as a distraction for Jude Law and his team to extract a Kree Spy. They show one missile leveling a city. Ronan turns up at Earth and proceeds to order all his ships to fire every single missile in a single file line, so they would presumably all land in the same 50m circle? Why not spread out the pay load across a continent? It made it awfully convenient for Captain Marvel to destroy the missiles when they were all fired in a tight clustered single file line.

 

The Tesseract is show to be too powerful for people to just touch, but Goose the Flerken manages to eat it and be fine? Also, why was Dr.Lawson keeping Goose as a pet? The Skrulls are shown to be scared of Flerkens so not like it was helping her refugee pals.

 

Jude Law turns up on Earth and finds fake Skrull Captain Marvel. Why did they even leave him behind? Why didn't they just take him (the skrull) into space with them? Not only that but at no time does anyone tell Jude Law where the Laboratory is but then he and his team just appear on it? I guess when it de-cloaked they managed to detect it? Over sight on Talos's part when they don't re-engage cloaking after boarding.

 

Captain Marvel shoots down Jude Law's little space fighter, he crashes, then Ronan The Accuser turns up and fires his missiles in a single fire line straight down. Captain Marvel flies off. When his ship crashes does Jude Law just literally stand there for like 5 minutes while Captain Marvel flies into space? What was he doing? Not like he could watch. He then proceeds to get Indian Jones'd by Captain Marvel, which was nice.

 

At times the editing seemed to be pretty poor. When Ronan turns up and fires at Earth it just kind of hard cuts to Captain Marvel flying straight up. They don't show her acknowledging the threat. When Fury fights Talos in the records room they showed like 15 guys run in to check the room then some how it is empty for Fury to one on one Talos.

 

Things I like.

 

The whole 'First Female led what ever' thing wasn't ever played up. It didn't feel like there was any real behind the scenes political message, it was just a cool story that happened to be revolving around a female. Not, "eww, men, amirite".

 

Some legit laughs. Old computers, Block Buster, incompetent Kree tech. In fact, the Skrull in general were pretty good.

#389294 Do you think the Master Chief is Halo or not?

Posted by KhevaKins on 18 May 2017 - 05:05 AM

I think Master Chief is the central focus of the Halo main storyline, the main numbered games, and with the exception of him eventually dying I think the numbered sequels should always follow the Master Chiefs story.

 

That being said I don't think MC has to be present or involved in every Halo story. I loved ODST for its different depiction of the war and would love more games focused on other events in the Halo universe, pre war, innie war, post war, you name it.




#389293 Theory on Slipspace Drives

Posted by KhevaKins on 18 May 2017 - 04:56 AM

So,theory

 

How do ships in Halo hang in the air?

 

Example; In Amber Clad manages to stay stationary over New Mombasa in Halo 2 with no (obvious) thrusters.

 

I think this can be explained with Slipspace drives.

I believe that a 'passive' ability of the Drives could be to anchor a ship in a particular spot, similar to how the Forerunner artifact immobilized Infinity over Requiem.

 

The Drive creates a link into Slipspace that suspends it in a spot.

Now, the reason why only certain ships can go into atmosphere while others can not (Halcyon's can't, Charons Can)

 

The immobilization effect only works on the drive itself, not the whole ships, since it is only the drive creating the link. In practice, the whole weight of the ship is held in spot by it's tethers/anchors/mounts to the drives themselves.
Obviously a Charon weighs alot less than a Halcyon, so the tethers/anchors/mounts don't need to hold as much weight. Super Halo space aged metals are still limited and so while the do manage to hold the Charon, the weight of a Halcyon is too much.

Now, why can Covvie ships hang in the air?
It could be that their super Halo space aged metal technology surpasses the UNSC's (access to crazy alloys and Huragoks) and so can hold more weight.

It could be their Slipspace drives are more powerful and so able to create a larger field.

 

This was just an idea I had. Obviously, post war UNSC had more tech and so now every ship can do whatever.




#389078 Could the UNSC have won the war if the Great Schism had not happened.

Posted by KhevaKins on 07 April 2017 - 04:41 AM

Without the Schism I am fairly sure Earth would of fallen and defeating the Covenant becomes pretty impossible but the complete destruction of Humanity seems fairly unlikely.

We were already working on the Infinity, Halsey and the gang were already busy at work messing around on Onyx and there were still a fair few untouched human colonies left out in the wild.

At worst we would probably end with something like Battlestar Galactica, no real homes, just flying place to place in fleets of ships.

#383884 Battlefield 1

Posted by KhevaKins on 13 May 2016 - 12:35 AM

So, you are probably dead of you haven't already watched the trailer, but here it is anyway, a good starting point:


Who excited?

In an time where every game is moving more and more into sci-fi it is great to see a AAA game take a step back, not only to set the game in the past but in WW1 which hasn't ever really been fleshed out in major videogames is great, but I suppose that is proably everyones point of view.

I am cautiously optimistic at the moment, seeing as we have only seen a 90 second trailer and have a few interviews where DICE have given vague answers to easy enough questions.
It will be great if the game wasn't focused on America, not to knock their role in the War but they certainly weren't the only players and they did join pretty late. The main art does have a Harlem Hellfighter on it though so I'm not overly confident I'll get exact;y what I want. As long as they don't act like there were 'good' guys and 'bad' guys, WW1 was more complicated than that.

Apparently there will be a campaign, which is great. Something like a series of different stories following soldiers across varies battles. Gallipoli is what I want, get me a kickass ANZAC hat.


#383266 Made A Thing

Posted by KhevaKins on 07 April 2016 - 03:14 AM

So, how everyone doing?
 
I made a thing.

First One.

Rush job. Supposed to be like a data/commisioning pad put onto the ship. Spelling mistakes.
Would be cool to get suggesting for format and information to include.
Spoiler


Second.

Testing how the ship would look. Thought it looked pretty simple/barren so went about adding more detail. Bonus UNSC logo plate.
Spoiler


Third.

First attempt at adding detail. I think turned out fairly decent. Found some cool green Ali to print on, which was nice. Still wanted to refine some more though.
Spoiler


Fourth.
Closing in on how to best set the ships up to print. I also setup the Infinity to print, but it didn't turn out so good so will have to redraw.
Spoiler


Am aiming to do all the UNSC ships, than move onto Covvie ones.

Thoughts?

#269183 New Info about Xbox One and used and Shared Games

10/10 will buy Xbox One now:
http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update
Microsoft is back baby, took them enough time but they have listened and seen the erros of there ways. Peoples feed back has altered their decisions. Alls I got to say is hells yea.




#267937 Buying Destiny

Posted by KhevaKins on 12 June 2013 - 06:57 AM

You know to be honest Destiny doesn't look that great. Now wait don't stab me.
A conglomerate of aliens come from out of space and start wiping out humans, who have colonies through out the universe. Humans get beaten back by said hostile aliens. Ancient aliens with prior knowledge of humans and have already chosen humans as favorites are friendly and give humans technology. Sounds very similar to something *cough* Halo *cough*. The jump in and out multiplayer does sound interesting though.




#267924 Xbox One and the PS4 - The same thing

Posted by KhevaKins on 12 June 2013 - 03:16 AM

Upon further reflection on the information brought to light at E3 I have to say both the Xbox One and the PS4 are about the same.

Specs for both systems are essentially the same. The PS4 is slightly better but not substantially and developers aren't going to bother taking advantage of the slightly increased 'power' of the PS4 anyway, not cross-platform games at least.
Spoiler


Both systems aren't particularly impressive to look at:
Spoiler

Remember when the original Xbox came out? That thing was a behemoth but it was great, so stop complaining about how they both look internet. The PS4 controller has a touch screen but how much would that cost? And why would you need it really? For better or worse the Xbox One also comes with the Kinect whilst the PS4 you have to pay extra for the PS Eye. Either way you have to pay extra, but pricing is later.

Software limitations wise the PS4 wins hands-down I have to admit. They have given straight yes/no answers:
" ‘yes’ - the PS4 would be free of limitations on used games, that ‘no’ - there would be no need for online connections, and, a bonus, that ‘yes’ - the console would even be region-free (the Xbox One is not)." -independent.co.uk

Whilst Xbox One has given sort of answers. ‘Kind of’ - the One would have limitations on used games, confusing ones that are difficult to understand. That ‘some times’ - there would be a need for online connections, also confusing, right now the consensus is every 24 hours for some reason. That ‘no' - the console wouldn't even be region-free (only straight answer)

But actual software features wise I think the One wins. Sure you can watch tv on your tv but why complain if the One offers you the ability to watch tv through it with added features?
You can instantly switch between tasks and I hear you ask "Why would I need such a thing?" Well it appears both the PS4 and the One are on a vendetta against loading screens:
Spoiler

Now the Ones ability seems better, I hate waiting for a match to start and it is a novel way of distraction away from loading screens, a hell of a lot better then watching a little circle spinning around or watching the words 'Looking for players' for 5 minutes.

Games wise (as in exclusives) same ol' same ol'. Nothing really impressive. Halo 5 but eh. Titanfall (One) looks pretty ok. The Order (PS4) looks pretty ok as well though.

Pricing. Once again the PS4 wins over the One. $399 in the US and £349 in the UK and $549 in AU are the prices for the PS4. $499 in the US and £429 and $599 in AU are the prices for the Xbox One. As stated above you get the Kinect (even if you don't want it) with the One but have to pay extra for the PS Eye thingy so take that in to account and still PS4 wins. I can see both consoles selling rather slowly this year. They are probably going to have some sort of price drop (like the PS3 when it got released. Didn't sell, to high a price).
This is just an extra thing but what de hell is with the price inflation in AU. An extra >$100. Shipping to AU and the Us would cost about the same. Sure the AU tax would be slightly higher but take that into account and it should only be a price rise of say $30. And the Au is equal to the US at the moment. I is bitter.

The only real difference between the PS4 and the One has been marketing.
Spoiler


'Relevant applications and uses to our gamers' - PS4 conference (round about what the guy said)
The PS4 has come out of the gated screaming to the heavens and all that will listen that the PS4 is designed for the gamers by the game developers (unlike the PS3 which screwed over indie devs, smell damage control). They claim to have gone to devs and asked what they would like and apparently designed the PS4 with that in mind (yet it end up essentially the same as the One). Those links up there show PS4 marketing it specs, using words like '1.84 Teraflops' and 'eight x86-64 core' to confuse most people into believing that the PS4 has alien tech and witchcraft inside it. But how much praise has actually been given to the PS4? It has mostly been the One sucks therefore PS4 better.

'Introducing the all-in-one entertainment system.' -Xbox One conference (similar to)
The Xbox One has been market as 'the Xbox experience'. They don't just want you gaming on the One, they want you using the One for all entertainment needs. Movies, tv, internet activity, you name it the One is trying to deliver. They have also targeted mass public appeal over the PS4 'for gamers' approach. And really who can blame the One for its motives? It is initiative and the 360 got a lot more public appeal when they updated the home screen and added apps. The One is just taking it a step further before Sony or Nintendo has the chance to. The One has been criticized for being ambiguous but if successful the One will have set a new precedent for home gaming and entertainment. Also about all the blow-back the One has received it has just become the new thing to ***** about the One. The internet goes through crazes and this is just the current one. The first conference was a disaster gamers wise but before the event Microsoft sent out press releases stating the event was going to be concentrated on family appeal and the multimedia capabilities. They were saving the gaming for E3, which was a smart move that people took out of context. But you notice how now one has praised the PS4 for being epic, they have just insulted the One for being not good.

Now after all that I hope I swayed the opinions of the seven of you that actually took the time to read through that. I think the conclusion is that everyone should hold of on buying the new consoles and voice complaints. The limitations imposed by Microsoft on the One (which are the main problem in regards to the One) can be easily reverted with patches if enough people voice their concerns. The prices of both will be reduced if enough people voice complaints on the price.

I think I will end this with a quote,
“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
