Re: Sharktopus - a SyFy Original

Now jannypie, weren't you saying elsewhere that boobs are overrated? I mean, Sharktopus has lots of loving shots of rear ends and tentacles, but I think the boob shots outnumber even those!

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

mean, have you ever played catch with a dog, throwing one tennis ball, then throwing him a loop by adding a second ball (throwing them both at the same time)? The dog goes back and forth between the two balls at least three times before choosing the one to bring back. And that's an intelligent dog,...

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

Hmm, I just went to the stats pages to get some info on Minotaurd's aggression to refute the suggestion that he is purely defensive and all I got was some zen rock/goth/balance carp. I rescind my praise Bo. Wait - where did you go? I usually go to megabeasts.com and click on the Stats & Info. I did...

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

Regarding the heat-seeking of the missles - that came out as a possibility in the podcast, an extrapolation of "Military Grade". But I take your point, they might not be. Regarding dust-devils - it's not just the dust devils themselves, but the mighty beat of the wings, which effortlessly lift the g...

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

Phenopath, yes there is some debate as to how the life force sucking mechanics actually work. Norm said that there has to be contact (thanks for the reminder jannypie), but then in the podcast, the guys said something about "Dark Crystal rules". So that does complicate things. As I mentioned, howeve...

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

Phenopath, while I heartily agree with your sentiments about the illustrations (Yay Bo!), I think you might be mistaken about Mino. If you think Mino has a chance in this, you'll have to explain how he is going to choose between targets. I mean, have you ever played catch with a dog, throwing one te...

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

Nice points tbaker. I do think that zipping is possible for Scar, considering the effortlessness of his flight, with the extra dust-devil power. In fact, this plays into the point about missle fire. I was at first worried about your missle fire back blast point, but then I realized that Scar could j...

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

I'm not sure Scar actually gets the other's particular powers - it just says he gets to 'grow in strength'. But for me, that's enough. Like you, dreamrock, I think Mino starts of just standing around, mooing and swinging his sword idly, perhaps chewing cud and swatting at the flies that regard him a...

Re: Drabblecast 180- Something Borrowed, Something Doomed

This was a pretty good one! Much better production than the last one. Like jannypie, I loved Lauren's voice. Reminded me of Jodie Foster's Clarise. I agree with other's critiques of the ending, in that, much like the world itself, it did dissipate into undifferentiated fluff. Overall thumbs up, thou...

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

No, no run up needed. The info says "effortless flight" and goes on to say "strength enough in its six wings to twist up and direct dust devils". Now that doesn't sound like anything that needs a run up. No, he will utterly trounce Tristegotops and mash the Minotaurd!

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

OK, just saw the post about clutching. STILL! All Scarho'tep has to do is clutch Tristegotops from behind and withstand any beating from the (still plodding) tail with his "extra-tough exoskeleton". He can just hang on until Tristegotops is bled out, so to speak. Plus, he can snip off the weaponry w...

Re: MB4 R1 - Scarho'tep vs. Tristegotops vs. Minotaurd

Plus, notice that Tristegotops stupidly has all of his weapons mounted face-forward. All Scarho'tep has to do is stay close behind him, all the while sucking life force out of him, effortlessly flying out of range of the tail and matching any attempts to turn around (which are described as 'plodding...

Why is nobody focussing on the fact that Scarho'tep can suck the life force out of his opponents, gaining size and strength???? COME ON!!! That has got to trump every other skill. There is no information on how close he has to be to perform this feat, only that his weakness is that it must be throug...
