  1. Mini Juggernog Fridge's Three Tunes

    I was just going to suggest that we get the mini jug fridge and crack it open for some modifications. I have a strong knowledge of sound equipment and electrical sensors, so it shouldn't be too difficult. I'm planning on getting the mini jug fridge (if I'm not too late) and if I of, I'll attempt to mod in the jug jingle and post a tutorial. Still, a full sized, fully modded machine like you're planning is far cooler.

    Four colors is too much!!!
  3. The Giant: A Sequel to Origins

    It could explain the gumball machines. Maybe Samantha is helping this group defeat their 'manifest sins' as a way to weaken the Vril-Ya/Great Evil. If so it must be the Origins Samantha in order to keep the former G935 timeline whole. This still bugs me that there are essentially 2 Samanthas in control at the same time, or at least that is an inevitability now. Hopefully more will revealed when we actually play.
  4. The Giant: A Sequel to Origins

    Nice theory. Seems very accurate. One issue though... Zombie eye color. Should be: Yellow=Samantha Blue=Richtofen Red=Vril-Ya I know in The Giant trailer we see yellow and so we should see red for Shadows of Evil, right? I'm thinking the trailer has those as yellow. Why? If SoE is the continuation of MotD, why are the zombie eyes yellow?
  5. How is there 2 richtofens?

    The teleporter is being manipulated by Samantha from the Aether. The reason Origins Rich knows what to do is because Samantha reached back through time or dimensions to talk to Maxis and reshape the events of Origins. The Giant is the continuation of that reshaping, so maybe we have to stop the evil at Der Reise during the Eclipse and that's the EE we'll see in this map. Who knows, maybe there will be more maps to finish this arc.
  6. The Giant: A Sequel to Origins

    That is what I'm talking about. That radio log gives us a point in time because this trailer contains the real-time event of that radio log.
  7. The Giant: A Sequel to Origins

    This could be the sequel, sure. If so, that's the Origins Richtofen who kills his older self from the timeline we're all familiar with (this is suggested by the Maxis quote just before we see the older Richtofen). When the characters mention 'waking the other test subjects', I'm going to assume they mean their older selves, but could be wrong. Getting away from the clear signs in this trailer, let's compare this to the Origins EE cutscene like we're seeing if this puzzle piece will fit. In the cutscene we only see 'Eddy' and Samantha discussing and exercising their control over the zombies which suggests they're on the same plane of existence. We only hear Maxis, so I'm going to assume the cutscene was meant to represent the Aether. Eddy is actually just the immortal youthful projection of Richtofen. This means that the cutscene takes place after the events of Moon, but since time is irrelevant within the Aether, it doesn't matter that Origins occurs chronologically before in the physical realm. Furthermore we can take the events of the Origins EE at face value, Samantha is reaching across the void of time to contact Maxis and shape the outcome of events. I think if The Giant is the continuation of that point, it must be 'Maxis' Plan' that Samantha mentions in the cutscene. So far, Richtofen has already been eliminated by his younger self who apparently teleported there with the help of Samantha. What evil are they mentioning? Is this the same evil that Samantha mentions during Moon? The evil that's even worse than Richtofen? There are questions from this for sure, but if looked at as the sequel to Origins it truly does segue pretty well. What can be said about the chronology of the previous maps though? I'm thinking this sheds even more light onto the entirety of the story. SNN, Verruckt, etc. were different test sites for 115 and all followed the events of Origins. Our O3 are kept locked away until the test is commenced (which is endless waves of undead, apparently) which they subsequently lose control of and must flee to the next site via teleporter in classic comic book fashion. Now we'll see 2 sets of these characters and hopefully continue to face this evil they mention. With 2 sets of Origin 4 characters, The Giant will have some great Grief matches for sure.

    Holy Lord...Someone send this to MMX, he'd truly appreciate it.
  9. [Mature] Rape convictions and drinking

    It's generally accepted I'd say that no one is an expert, nor is anyone claiming to be. We're all just sharing opinions about a topic. Some of us have very strong opinions, others do not. It's nonetheless a topic being discussed. Heated debate may be included and things can seem to get out of hand, but that's only because it's a controversial subject. We can only become more enlightened by discussing such at length. Of course, there's the possibility that someone becomes too upset over the debate. Tough titty. This was clearly marked as mature by the OP, so if you lose your cool with this discussion, be mature about it. Take a step back, address your opinions and feelings in constructive manner, and you'll most assuredly be pleased with the results. Only after we break down the walls of emotional controversy can we truly and objectively discuss things. We will, at the very least, learn a great deal about each other, but we can also (if approached properly) strengthen our community bond, receive valuable outside perceptions, and possibly discover evidence to support claims. This is all knowledge. This topic is just a quest for knowledge and opinion. You're either on the adventure, or you're not. However, this is the chosen adventure so please be respectful of the heated debate and controversy and don't try to villify it in the way you have. It's a good thing to have these discussions, but if it's difficult for you to find that value, please read it again or just check out. When you make statements like that, you sort of rattle the security that many of us have with our own opinions. You make it seem like we shouldn't have an opinion because we haven't devoted a career to this psychology. Who are you to make that claim? Just because I'm not an expert in no way means I can't have an opinion. Perhaps my opinion is a misinformed opinion...Well, by all means, inform me. Give me more information and let me process that and revise my opinion. Do not try to muzzle us, either provide your own argument (complete with evidence or not) or stay out of it. It's a touchy enough subject as is, please refrain from shaking the already fragile frame.

    Or avoid large plain vans with badly written signs labeled "free candy". Checkmate. And don't leave your child alone with this guy:

    Let's think about this for a moment... The reason there even is a defense that women can prevent rape by wearing conservative clothing, limiting their exposure to clubs/parties, and/or not getting drunk is because these are all high percentage ways to get raped. That's the statistical science. Now why would that be? Because these are breeding grounds for sexual ferocity... A rapist sees a woman with revealing clothing and he becomes aroused A rapist may stalk nightclubs or parties looking for victims A rapist may take advantage of a woman who is drunk and exploit her weak inhibitions Now, this is how a rapist thinks. Inversely, a real man sees these situations in a different manner... A man sees a woman with revealing clothing and thinks she is beautiful A man goes to a nightclub or party to have fun with friends and meet new people A man will make sure a drunk woman is safe and protect her So, now perhaps you can understand why "rape culture" is wrong. It's advocating the way a rapist thinks which is wrong. It's not the women that cause the problem, it's the rapist.

    It's because the judicial system makes more money off these people when they're being monitored outside of jail. I do know people who were convicted of sexual crimes and let me tell you, the crime follows you for life regardless of how long your jail sentence is.
  13. [Mature] Rape convictions and drinking

    Well you wouldn't have read that because the statement I made was... Here's the problem with suggesting rape can be prevented via actions by the victim: It is a defense that rapists use. Don't follow their poor example.
  14. [Mature] Rape convictions and drinking

    I think the problem with misinterpretation is that @Electric Jesus seems to be hoping for a rape-free world and his logic behind how to accomplish this is sooth. The problem, EJ, is that there will never be such a thing as a rape-free world, so your ideas that the victims should exercise certain practices to avoid rape, though hopeful, are dead-ends. A woman could never leave her home except to check the mail, go to work, and run errands. She may never expose herself to typical dangerous "rape prone" situations, yet still be a victim when that pervert neighbor decides to take the leap and break down her door. It's admirable that you're thinking so much with these good intentions, but that energy is wasted on a pipe dream. Victims will always be victims, not because of who they are, but because of who the assailants are.
  15. [Mature] Rape convictions and drinking

    Exactly. There's more to being responsible than just not breaking the law. Know yourself, know the situation you're in, assume the situation you could be in after doing this or that and then decide what to do. If the possibilities of a situation seem like they could turn badly or there are just too many unknowns, it's best to check out of the situation and all its potential as soon as possible. Most of the problems associated with alcohol are because people failed to have such foresight or just made a poor decision. Often times when people are in the frame of mind to "let loose", unfortunately, they rarely think ahead and the alcohol just compounds this issue further.
