Sounds like an easy way to bring the Alien franchise into the MCU. Engineers = Eternals :jeb
12
the safe take for Eternals is basically just doing WildC.A.T.S, and have the kherubim Eternals crash land on Earth thousands of years ago and already be super powered, and be fighting daemonites deviants throughout the course of human history and being written into various mythologies before some shit happened that mind wiped them before endgame restored their memories somehow.

You get to have your big historical event scenes a la Wonder Womans no mans land fight, and then you get your modern scene with someone getting like, paintings of Samson, Gilgamesh, Hercules, St George killing the dragon etc and then contemporary sidekick going all "WOW THESE ARE ALL THE SAME PERSON... AND ITS YOU!".

But they're still kind of their own little bubble, and its not like the MCU does as much time travel shenanigans as DC does, so I'm not sure what it brings to the table in terms of fleshing stuff out, because I really don't think Disney are going to be pushing the 'human race were created and genetically engineered by aliens all along' angle.
I guess you can show Rama Tut in ancient egypt times before recycling him into Kang for ant man 3?

Also also 2 1H is only really worth it once you get a very specific set of 1H swords. Even then Greatswords are still very viable.

I still don't really understand how dual wielding works in this game. Like if you do a standard attack you hit twice instead of once, ok that is obvious though I think the stats are on the 2nd weapon are cut in like 1/2.

But since you almost never are using standard attack, and your abilities still just hit once or whatever number of times, is the damage based on the combination attack power of the two weapons + default str stats? So if the two weapons attack power combined is higher than your best greatsword you'll do more damage?

The behind the scenes stats in this game are pretty confusing for strategic trying to min-max. Hell the bestiary doesn't even give any info about enemies besides their drops so I don't even know if elements are a thing in DQ. If you use fire spells/weapons against an ice enemies do you do more damaage? If you use ice attacks against an ice enemy do they have resistance to it? I...don't know.

I like the DQ series a lot for the story telling, music, old-school exploration, but for the meat of the gameplay it's just ok and not one of my favorite jrpg series.

Got mine today, was super orderly and painless. So weird since every other time I've been to Javits it's for Comic Con which is absolute overcrowded chaos. So far feel pretty good apart from a slight sore arm.

Ripped through the Mechon fortress like a knife through butter with the Shulk, Reyn, Dunban combo.

There's so much weird 70s LSD induced pseudo-religious space gods fuckery around adam warlock I'm not that surprised nobody really knows how to approach it.

...but then one of the upcoming actual being released movies is Eternals, sooooo.... :idont

My comic book knowledge comes and goes as I read trades, so I don't really remember Adam Warlock's older stuff including his role in Infinity War other than he's just super powerful. I think you can avoid all the religious Jesus stuff and just make him a super powered "perfectly engineered human who evolves in a cocoon" thing and be done with it.

In this DnA Guardians run, Warlock works pretty great with the team dynamic because him being this ultra-powered super serious no-humor person creates a great character for Quill to constantly play off of with quipps and just a "oh shit we're in over our head, do whatever the supergod guy says". So I think something like that would work really well in the film team. Would be nice if he joins early in 3.

That being said the film team so far is this rag-tag underpowered group and having a overpowered character like Warlock join would definitely make the scenes tougher to write since Warlock is one of those can beat any situation plot writing issues.
