    Something doesn't have to be intentionally hurtful to be hurtful.

    I think it's been explained enough to you how it has come off that way regardless of intent.

    But whatever. I am going to continue to talk about superheroes in the superhero thread. I suggest you simply do the same.

    Oh for christ's sake nobody has said any of you are being hysterical or that your feelings are invalid

    I'm saying that you are getting pretty defensive over a polite suggestion

    which, by the way, you are. For a start, you're getting all hurt about me saying you might (just might, just maybe) want to take a discussion to another forum thread

    just say "no we're cool"

    there's nothing I can do about it, is there

    get the giant bomb talk out of the podcast thread while you're at it

    If someone really wanted this instead of using it as an argumentative tool in a separate thread, I would be happy to not talk about non-podcast Giant Bomb stuff in there. In fact, that has happened! And a lot more podcasts get talked about in there now. Crazy!

    And I don't think anybody it intentionally trying to be hurtful.

    But we have to be able to have discussions that may make some uncomfortable/feel hurt, or else we negate true discourse through fear of unintended, emotional consequences.

    Guys, this is a super hero thread. Can we go back to talking about super heroes? Maybe you could take this discussion to the rules thread?
    And take the dirty DC'ers with you.

    So marvel unlimited is finally almost done with the time runs out event, the next one is the secret wars XIVIIVIVI or whatever right?

    I keep hearing people say this book is actually good, but I can't mentally move myself past the initial awful reveal of it.

    I guess that shows the power of marketing. Or bad marketing.

    and by the time the next issue of secret wars is out, you'll be able to pick it up in your robotic flying car, while your cocktail of nanobots keeps you in top shape and you teleport across the universe, because at this rate it'll be 2065 before we see the next one

    Time Runs Out is more of a crossover arc than an event, but yes it leads right into Secret Wars

    Grayson is good

    In fact, Dick's book is often good in spite of whatever else is going on at DC

    I'm trying to think of the last time his solo book was bad

    Every thread is starting to blend together.

    I opened this thread, started reading, and 100% thought I was in the podcast thread for a minute.

    I get this sometimes in the weirdest ways, was in one of the gun debate threads the other day, and had switched over to a video game thread , but brain hadn't totally accepted that yet so when first post I read in game thread was along the lines of " Ya sure the killing is hard, but then you get to collect all those sweet souls" my jaw dropped until I remembered I had changed threads

    The DC stuff is an actual game and it's quite fun. It's Batman though, so while Wonder Woman and Flash and so on do have minis made by the company, they don't have any stats because it would be silly!

    But yeah, pretty cool. You basically have a gang of, like, four to six guys typically? So you can play Batman and have Robin and Nightwing (they're really expensive, obviously) or you can have the Joker and half a dozen thugs, or Poison Ivy and some killer plants and shit. You can also have the GCPD as a force too, so Gordon, Bullock and then some GCPD SWAT. Loads of choices.

    The game uses terrain and lighting quite a bit, so you need to get the streetlamps, sewer grates and so on, as they allow you to move around stealthily, sneak onto the board through the sewers etc. Each character has their own special moves and attacks, of course. But yeah you can do stuff like Batarang a streetlight to plunge a couple of thugs into darkness and then ambush them, or whatever.

    The Marvel stuff they do is really nice but they have no license to make a game and probably won't get one. My buddy wrote a really cool game which we play pretty regularly, though, and have been extensively playtesting and improving as a group. It's strictly personal use, though, obviously.

    Is this a thing

    cause a guy who goes heroing but only like on the weekends and doesn't take it super seriously could actually be interesting
