Ready to have your mind blown, your childish innocence shattered, your ideas of everything right in the world torn asunder? Strawberries are not really berries, but watermelon, pumpkins, bananas, and avocados are. It's okay. Take a few deep breaths. We're right here with you.

Darksiders Devs Using Crowdfunding To Revive Classic Comic Series [Battle Chasers] as JRPG

[div class="excerpt" style="background-color:#dcdcdc; padding-bottom:5px; border:1px solid #bfbfbf; border-bottom:none; border-radius:0.4615em 0.4615em 0em 0em; box-shadow:3px 3px 3px #999999;"]Darksiders Devs Using Crowdfunding To Revive Classic Comic Series as JRPG

Heading up the studio, which is called Airship Syndicate, is Joe Madureira--a veteran comic book artist renowned for his work at Marvel Comics--and Ryan Stefanelli. Together the two founded Vigil Games.

Their first project brings back Battle Chasers, a comic book series created by Madureira and published by WildStorm in 1998. The series developed a passionate following but has remained dormant since around 2001.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a video game set in the same universe as Madureira's series, and the studio is asking for $500,000 in crowdfunding on Kickstarter to make it.

As the game's developers note, while Darksiders drew heavy inspiration from The Legend of Zelda, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is inspired by Japanese role-playing games such as Final Fantasy.

Battle Chasers is Officially, For Really Real Coming Back as a Game, But Only if You Help Fund It

Earlier this year, Joe Madureira hinted at the possibility of Battle Chasers, his creator-owned series, returning in some form. After leaving comics for a time to focus on game development, and then releasing two games with Vigil Games and THQ, it seems the time is now right for Gully, Garrison, Calibretto and the rest of the gang to make their comeback. Battle Chasers: Nightwar will see Joe Mad return to the series and characters for the first time in almost 15 years, but this time the franchise is stepping into a new arena — video games.

Using Kickstarter to fund the development for PC and Mac (other platforms will follow if stretch goals are met), Airship Syndicate is bringing the fan-favorite comic to life as a JRPG. If you’re at all familiar with Battle Chasers, you know just how perfect a fit the world of that series is for a role-playing game steeped in the traditions of Squaresoft and Enix, but with a modern twist. That means there’ll be loads of turn-based battles, mana and dungeon crawling to go around, but the dungeons will be generated randomly and have a bit of that Diablo flare.

You can see a decent amount of early gameplay in the video above, including some nice looks at the combat in action. The party system will carry three members, each with their own special abilities and gear. More skills will be unlocked as you level up, allowing you to tailor the fighters to your liking. Characters will have two different mana pools to use, with one (blue) being resigned to core attacks and one (red) for special moves. These heroes will also react differently to the red mana, with some like Garrison getting boosted and others like Knolan being slightly penalized.

Airship is also including a variation on the initiative system, which will see buffs and debuffs included at random intervals. If a character attacks or defends during one of these moments, the action will activate. You’ll be able to see where and when these slots are coming in the order, so you can plan around them, for better or worse. Additionally, dungeon exploration will play a large role, and there will be pitfalls and traps to avoid alongside the enemy encounters. Playable characters will have specialized skills for traversing these dangerous halls, which will come in handy considering dying in a dungeon will lead to a loss of your items. There’s a lot more to Battle Chasers: Nightwar, including a story that flows alongside the comic series itself, and animated story sequences for major points in the narrative, but details on those aspects are a bit light at the moment.

Let us not forget what the Contempt Ruling in Kentucky Really means.

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]It means couples like April Miller and Karen Roberts can FINALLY get married tomorrow. It means rule of law has won! It is tempting to get carried away in the drama of moment and fixate upon the lawbreaker who abused her power...but we must not do that.

It is about love once again overcoming hate. It is about the triumph of equality before the law. It is about people who were wronged finally getting their rights respected.

The bigot doesn't even deserve us using her name. Let us forget her and instead let us celebrate the triumph of the couples who fought her and remember their names instead![/font]

The Evidence Supports Artificial Sweeteners Over Sugar

JULY 27, 2015

Aaron E. Carroll

In the last few years, I’ve watched a continuing battle among my friends about which is worse for you: artificial sweeteners or sugar. Unless you want to forgo all beverages that are sweet, you’re going to run into one of these. Rather than rely on anecdote or myth, we can inform this debate with research.

The available evidence points to the fact that there appears to be a correlation between sugar consumption and health problems; none can be detected with artificial sweeteners.

Let’s start with artificial sweeteners. These have, for decades, been attacked as harmful chemicals. But everything is a “chemical,” and not all of them are bad for us. One of the oldest artificial sweeteners is saccharin. Starting in the 1980s, Congress mandated that any product containing it be accompanied by the following: “Use of this product may be hazardous to your health. This product contains saccharin, which has been determined to cause cancer in laboratory animals.”

But what was the basis for this decision? A review article published in The Annals of Oncology in 2004 noted that more than 50 studies had been published looking at saccharin in rats. Twenty of these were “one generation” studies, meaning that they did not look at the rats’ offspring. In only one of those studies did huge amounts of saccharin produce cancer, and it was in a type of rat that is frequently infected with a bladder parasite that would leave it susceptible to saccharin-induced bladder cancer...

Just another nail in the coffin of the people who insist that artificial is always bad, natural is always good. Now, please excuse me as I go drink another can coke zero and enjoying all the weight I lost since I switch to it from real cokes.[/font]

The ULTIMATE reason why you should vote for Bernie Sanders

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]There have been numerous posters who have stated why they feel that Bernie Sanders should be the nominee. But, to date, I have yet to see the ULTIMATE reason why we should vote for Bernie over Hillary.

And that reason is....[font color=crimson face=impact size=8]this guy![/font]:



YES! There is a real possibility that Donald Trump could be the Rethug nominee. And simply put, Hillary just can not compete with Trump's [font color=crimson face=impact size=8]Epically Bad Hair[/font]. I mean look at her!



Her hair is [font color=crimson face=impact size=8]FABULOUS!!![/font] IT IS PERFECT!!! There is no way she could compete! The country would take one look at her and then him and vote for him out of pure pity!


ONLY ONE MAN has the hair needed to beat trump!

[font color=crimson face=impact size=8]BERNIE FREAKIN SANDERS!!![/font]



Look at those lockes that will not be tamed! Look upon the epitome of Chaos itself. Trump's hair might be epic, but SANDER's silvery locks are the stuff of [font color=crimson face=impact size=8]LEGEND!!![/font]

ONLY BERNIE COULD EVER HOPE TO COMPETE.

There is just no comparison. Sorry Hillary, you gave it your best but you just can't beat the hair.

And you should be thanking the Flying Spaghetti Monster for that fact! YIKES!!![/font]

SCOTUS RULES GAY MARRIAGE LEGAL, RIGHT-WINGERS THREATEN TO MOVE TO CANADA. YES. CANADA.

The SCOTUS ruling upset right-wingers across the Internet today, and in the immediate wake of the ruling, many of them partook in a the fine American tradition of threatening to leave the country on social media.

But where would they go? You would assume a country like Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, or Uganda would be to their liking. But, incredibly, no. Instead, to escape marriage equality, these bigots threatened to flood America’s northern border — and move to Canada.

[font size=5]#lovewins[/font]

The SCOTUS ruling this morning was a huge blow to the right-wing and the bigotry that they’d been defining themselves with lately.

The tweet #lovewins began trending almost immediately after that, celebrating the victory of the right to marry over bigotry and homophobia. And while this isn’t the end of the battle — in many ways, it’s just the beginning — today was a day for celebration and reflection.

Many right-wingers had no intention of doing that, however. Instead, they took to twitter and threatened to move to Canada.

I got your flag of southern pride right here!

[center] [/center]

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]Dr. King was a man who fought to make America a better place for all. He epitomizes everything right with America. AND HE WAS A SOUTHERNER! Can there be a better symbol for Southern Pride and Heritage than him?

I DON'T THINK SO!!!

There are many things we as southerners have to be proud about, things that have no connection to hate and racism. Why not make a flag based on one of those things?

The fact that the bigots insist on using a flag FOREVER associated with hate and bigotry rather than making a new one celebrating the positive parts of southern culture PROVE the battle for the confederate flag is about racism plain and simple!

IT IS TIME TO TAKE DOWN THE SYMBOLS OF HATE! IT'S TIME FOR THE CONFEDERATE FLAGS TO GO DOWN NATION WIDE![/font]
