"On the subject of Fate/Stay Dalek: ...Sec summoning an infinite amount of Gunsticks, Planetary defense arrays, Killcruiser main guns, Special Weapons and every freaking weapon ever created by the Daleks... holy shit, I think we've found the closest thing we can get to enuff dakka."

"Remember, they are not your normal honey badgers from a brightly colored magical deathworld. They are free range honey badgers lovingly raised at the edge of one of the unhealing scars on the planet from which all monsters are born by none other than Fluttershy"
You realize Kasumi
appears to have a plan involving a small Krogan statue, a gun, and a Honey Badger. And possibly (Exalted
: On the topic of dakka
, there is a horrible truth behind enuff dakka. Once you have enuff dakka, there is nothing left to shoot; because everything was used up making the dakka!
Jonen C: That's not actually Enuff Dakka, so much as it is the Big Dakka, where you take everything and shoot it to make everything again.

"Why is everyone assuming we're competent?"
"Have you seen the stuff we suggest as good ideas? We're by and large idiots. I just saw a shitload of dudes unable to beat a literal illiterate in a debate in VS. We have dumbasses who support the most absurd things in here."
"We're not even the fucking stormtroopers."
Sith, on the ideal remake of Halo
"Obviously, we should use bad analogies to imply whenever we see the technology not doing the thing we want it to it's just that they've dialed it down because they're all just incompetents. Being so dumb they probably don't even know the dial goes up that high, you know, because they're dumb. Not at all like us.
This is obviously because we have such stupendously vast mental faculties we can instantly see all the hidden factors to a technology's operation when we're shown a single - or extremely limited - instance of it's usage, and can predict exactly how it completely changes the nature of the setting(in spite of it not doing so) and use that to deduce the residents of the setting are just dumb(because of the aforementioned failiure to completely understand all the hidden factors in their technology that allows us to forsee such usage methodologies with our incredible intellect).
Hence, even with them working with said technology every single day, and having built said technology, and having a functioning understanding of all the engineering aspects of said technology, we understand it better than them, despite lacking all these things. We're just that fucking clever."
"This is what happens when people make a calculation that relies on everybody involved being too stupid to breathe.
The very context established by the characters is questioned on the grounds of their staggering stupidity. If you're too dumb to use your FTL fists to punch a guy in his laser eye before it fires when he's announced he's firing his laser eye at you(and he's also dumb enough to announce he's firing his laser eye at you)
, and you are assumed to not be a vegetable relative to other characters, the guy with the laser eye is by extension rendered so stupid his claim of his laser eye being a laser eye is moot because he'd believe he had a laser eye if someone celotaped a live chicken to his face."
Tyrion77: You've really got to rather pity the Reapers in that. I mean, seriously, how on earth do you plan for that kind of level of bullshit?
"Spacebattles: Equally at home with calculating the proper amount of dakka to commit xenocide as it is with speculating on feather-dragon-alien/human mating rituals."
SB really is the geek Center. One implied sex scene(not even graphic mind you) and 10 pages about the theoritical (sic) "mechanics" of it.
Not to mention we do it with theme music and without actually stating our hypothesis directly till one of us gets bored.
anyone else get that feeling that the world needs a shake-up pretty soon or cyberpunk dystopia for everyone?
"Perfectly Reasonable™ calcs are the logic equivalent of a date rape- you take a nice, canonic premise out, promise it a good time and start talking about things it likes. But at some point you slip something in when it isn't looking, something bad. Before it knows it everything's all wrong, it wakes up somewhere it never had any intention of going and has only the vaguest sense of how it got there or why it's all sore and looking nothing like it did earlier.
To add insult to injury, everyone's laughing and patting the guy responsible on the back...
We have serious discussions about ANYTHING.
on a thread discussing the order in which Disney Princesses are to be introduced to a ball
It doesn't need to be said. This is SB. We will engage in wild mass guessing and bizarre shipping until the story tells us otherwise. Then we will start arguing why the story is wrong.
The reason Turians (and Batarians) are hated by SB so much is simple.
The Turians are humans as SB wants them to be. Highly competent, professional, harmonious, meritocratic, enlightened, militaristic, respected and feared by everyone.
The Batarians are humans as SB's terrible ideas would make them. An incompetent tinpot dictatorship with a penchant for mass murder, terrible strategic decisions, casual racism, and no fucking idea how outclassed they are.
But maybe I'm judging her by the standards of SB competence, which is a very high standard to meet.
Well... most of the time. Honestly SB competence is kind of wibbly/wobbly in effectivness. (sic)
I disagree, I think that SB competence at executing a given plan is fairly high. It's just that SB's goals
tend to be all over the place and often contrary.
Deadpool claims to be the hivemind of some place called SB, whatever that is. ;)
No, Deadpool is too restrained and lucid, too compassionate and stoic, to be the SB hivemind.
Doesn't change the fact that Spacebattles managed to figure out how to drop a small star on Leviathan using two capes (neither of which were Sundancer), a glass jar, and a lake with the only assumption being that the Passengers don't cry foul. Taylor has... not done that.
Welcome to Spacebattles. We write fanfics of fanfics that are about other fanfics that idly, in some oblique way, mention the original source material.
Dude, this is SB.com. Are you at all surprised that we're killing the dreams of kiddies around here?
.... I just sort of realized something.
is actually awfully close to Spacebattles - or at least how Spacebattles acts in quests.
Think about it, He wants to be a hero, and he wants to do the right thing, and he wants to help people. But all of it is just a bit abstract to him - especially at the beginning. Hell, he's also essentially got the power that _all_ quest characters that show up in existing settings do - because he's essentially got the power of meta-knowledge with the broadcast shard. And he tends to use it the same way space-battles in quests do - to put the best foot forward.
There's a lot of parallels and it's pretty awesome/amusing.
You guys are talking about the SB of countries here; we like explosions, have deadly animals, and in WWI our soldiers charged into trenches on cavalry.
Sum Sine Regno:
I was expecting something more tame and more in the vein of biting social satire...and I got explosions?
That's because the mind behind the ad is from SB.
We just need to figure out who.
It's my fault for telling this story on a site where "nuke it from orbit" or "construct a needlessly elaborate lethal trap" is considered to be a legitimate method of problem solving.
Spacebattles: Its (sic) like a drug and anime but its free and even more addicting.
I'm given to understand that derailment around here is not done by halves. When space battles derails it derails and goes through the fucking moon... or so I'm told.
Daniel K. English:
Wow, everyone here is so tense. I thought SB was a melting pot of grimdark, angst and agony but now I realize you're all princesses at heart. That's so... sweet. And hilarious. Hahahaha!
I believe the quote is "Spacebattles: Rambo on the outside, Disney Princess on the inside."
SB for the most part are Rambo Princesses. We love the cool explosions and awesome moments but really love the waff
and cute things.
If you must make vampires sexual, at least make it depraved and monstrous.
Any good director would throw it to SB to come up with something Good.
The vampires gain gridfire
, but not before the ponies
gather together for the final showdown. Somehow Wetapunga is behind it all.
I think that SB, predictably, is putting more thought into this than the OP intended to give.
Wait till we start calculating probable yields of the warhead that exploded in the little village, going off collateral damage radii..
