Yeah, that jumped out to me too. Not that I exactly object though.

(Is this thing on?) #8753

It’s a recurring theme at this point - if it doesn’t have an entry of its own on tvtropes by now, it should do!

(Temet Nosce) #8754

To be fair, it does date back quite a ways in science fiction literature. Honestly it seems even closer to Borderlands than just that though. Still, I really don’t mind the general style anyways, not like there are so many games that fit in the niche that I wouldn’t enjoy one more.

I don’t reckon there are many mortal kombat fans here, but if so
This came out yesterday

All i have to say is holy ■■■■

I’m a long time fan and someone who really likes the games lore, so this blew my mind. I for one through MKX wrapped up the story good enough, but guess not.

Game seems to be back on the old timeline now

I don’t know ■■■■ about mortal kombat.

Here’s what I know.

I have a total plumber bod that all the girls want.

@TemetNosce is better than borderlands wikipedia.

And people reporting on leaks don’t know their ■■■■ from their genitals.

Flip flop, ready ready, peace out.

I had a rough night last night because I was stressing out about my future.

When I woke up, I calmed down and tweaked the design of my blog a little.

Off-topic: This is interesting…

(The Bearer of Pie and Best user of English) #8759

Why would you ever use the borderlands wiki? This place is so much better for info

(The Sword In The Darkness ) #8760

Just passing through. O-o

Good lord I got drunk yesterday.

Perfect time for a run to clear your head.

I was going to start wishing a couple people happy forumverssary but then I realized it’s Forum Junior’s anniversary.

I saw another Prime van today while we were coming home.

It was interesting.

(Focused for Success in a Distracted World) #8766

For some reason I always thought the phrase “Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus” was from It’s a Wonderful Life (I haven’t seen that movie since I was wee), but it came up in conversation with my ma and brother.

Apparently it’s from the New York Sun from 1897.

Mmmmmmm. Pizza is getting delivered again. Yaaaaay.

My dad made blackberry cake for dessert.

It was a little tart but it was good.

At least you guys get snow up there.

Also, if you guys are talking railguns…:

“Optimus Prime this was not, mmm…”
– Yoda, “Star Wars”

Dear lord. My dad was watching a programme last night about Leptis Magna, the magnificent ancient ruined city in Libya… I looked up travel advice from the Foreign Office about travelling there to quell any ambitions he might have developed, it was one of the scariest things I’ve ever read:

Basically an extended government-talk elaboration of the phrase “You. Will. Die. (Seriously.)”

(Is this thing on?) #8771

It is not a happy place, for sure. There are now significant areas across that part of the world which are basically a black hole of violence.

(You know... Ireland.) #8772

There are, but Libya seems worse than most. For comparison, the Foreign Office doesn’t even advise against ‘all’ travel to Iraq or Afghanistan. I’m starting to think the arms trade isn’t a good thing…

(In the cloud, We're all weird. 😜) #8773

My mom lived in Libya when she was young because my grandfather (Her father) was stationed there.
