Hello!


I hope this is an acceptable thing to post here! My name is Rupert and I’m one third of ‘The Animus Workshop’. I’m excited to be spreading the word about our superhero series ‘Lukulele’! It’s the first web series we’ve ever done and we are excited to share it with you!


It’s an unorthodox superhero story told through the lens of a YouTube vlogger’s ukulele tutorials. I’d love to know what you think of the series! Please follow this link and check out all six episodes!

Lukulele is the first series of The Animus Trilogy (I’ll tell you more about that later) but if you enjoy the series please subscribe as there's A LOT to come including an animated series.


Thanks,

Rupert


P.S please do reply, I love to chat and would really love to know what you think of the series!

Don't worry, that'll be 6 more seasons of skye cornering people to talk about their feels for you.

it should've been cancelled long ago. not sure why it wasn't when the ratings have been going down continually for years. I thought it would end once it hit the syndication point but they just kept re-upping.

That's too bad.

I can't comment on how valid I think it is due to I've only seen the first season. As with any show, new ideas do understandably seem to get harder to come up with. Then the show gets boring and cancelled.

7 years is a pretty good run. Better than many. The first season is great. I like all seasons of the new Lost in Space but... they only have to make 10 episodes a year.

General Discussion / Quatloos!
« Last post by Xev on February 19, 2020, 08:50:19 PM »
After re-seeing the episode about original series Star Trek's gamblers betting their Quatloos... curiosity finally got to me and I had to look up where the word/currency originated..

Google often gives original Star Trek the credit for inventing the currency but that's not so. Original Lost in Space had it before them in Farnum's beauty contest that Judy was tricked into joining. I bet Lost in Space swiped them from someone else..

I could probably dig deeper to get more clues but instead am just gonna ask: Anyone happen to know where Quatloos originated..?

I've had a lot of TV catching up to do. Just recently got into Merlin after it had already ran for like 6 years and was cancelled and it's kinda a bummer to know that when I get to the end, that's the end.

Luv this show. Glad it's still going. I'm just now towards the end of the 1st season. It's probably tied with the new Lost in Space series for my favorite show right now.

Aww damn, season 7 is going to be the last season (I just read whole link).. Oh well.. 7 years is a good run.. *pout*

Healer is still the most rewarding way to play my Warlock as far team contributions go. I struggle with a Hellbringer because it's fun and then I switch to Scourge when a team needs a few heals and I become twice as effective with half the effort.

After dumping all my Paragon Encounter powers (level 34-80?) as a Hellbringer Warlock.. I seemed to be hitting the skirmish kill/dps scoreboards closer to what I get as a Rogue. I was happy to put in a more respectable contribution, but, it just doesn't feel right dumping all non-newb Encounter powers to do it.

Encounter Powers seem to be what I gravitate to. If I'm not using one I'm waiting to use one. Daily Powers are nice to save for a big/end boss or burn when things get too crowded. I haven't figured a way to get mine to pop very often. At-Will Powers are... what you use when you don't get to use a Daily or Encounter power or when you want to build something up (yawn).

Thing is, I feel like I'm always waiting around for an Encounter power to pop which leads to a feeling of not having enough Powers which leads to combat feeling a little boring. Finding out I do as much deeps with my newb Encounter powers as all the fancy Paragon ones has also been underwhelming.

To sum up: *shrug*

: )

I see people doing ~ 6x my deeps on the scoreboards so I know I still have more about the game to discover.

I think one of my favorite things about Neverwinter Combat is Movement. Warlocks have my favorite movement ability. Rogues are good. Wizards too. Block, I'm sure is very handy for tanking and building up Divinity for Paladins, but, has been ... less exciting.

As a Warlock, for example, it's pretty cool to be able to go near invul as I run circles around whatever I need to whenever I have enough Stamina to do so. It's like being able to hit Block in Champions Online and outmaneuver AoE and outrun mobs at the same time. Then Encounter Powers repop, I plant my feet and let loose - rinse, repeat.

I finally got a chance to see it and I thought it could've been better. I wish the DCEU would've just made a Harley Quinn solo movie. As a Harley Quinn fan I did enjoyed Margot Robbie's performance. It's perfect casting for Margot reprising her role from Suicide Squad. I did like Black Canary and Huntress. I didn't like Montoya and Cassandra Cain. I felt like Montoya was useless and unnecessary to the story and Cassandra is an unlikable character. Black Mask..... he's just there... to push the plot forward.  All in all it was ok but, I did like the action sequences.

Master Expeditions..

I'm not sure why people run so many of these. I mean, yeah, there's some nice drops, but, mostly they aren't any better than what you can get with Seals of the Deep from running Randoms and it didn't take me long to get the ME drops I wanted.

*shrug*

I like hanging out in Yawning Portal, though, and I do use ME artifact primary and secondary gear and a couple of other pieces. Maybe I'm missing something.

I semi keep up on pricing..

If I were to build, today, I'd build the same thing but with 32 gig of ram and I'd probably get a step up or two in processors due to with these two upgrades the price would be about the same as what I spent a year ago.., and, due to you can never have too much memory, and, due to even though it doesn't bother me at all when gaming - my cpu is probably my current weakest link.

Still luv the case. Still luv Bluetooth. Still luv dual Pcie SSDs. I'm glad I went with a Silver rated PSU from a good company. I've had no problems with Windows 10 and I probably even like it better than 7, now. I thought that fans that have a mind of their own (all my fans but the case fans turn themselves off when the thing they're cooling is cool enough already) might turn out to be problematic but so far so good.

STO is good at polish and here is another fine example..

https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11363953

I haven't tried this yet but look forward to never having to transfer ships around, and all the hassle that process entails, to use them for Admiralty.

I like that we don't have to run around and collect Omega Particles this year!! That is so not fun for me. This year we get some choices and I always choose the TFO which is where I'm always at in STO anyway, in TFOs, so yay, because I want the ship's goodies.

And yay that they keep updating the Art. STO is always getting a little better (except that time they killed the Foundry..).
