Not 3 different games (although 3 is completely different than the first 2)

But why we get 3 different character models for Max?

x-menWarning: Spoilers ahead for All-New X-Men #40, on sale tomorrow.

In this weeks All-New X-Men #40, writer Brian Michael Bendis will finish out his run on the series with a finale that promises to have lasting ramifications for one of the original X-Men...and leave fans talking.

Bobby Drake, the X-Man known as Iceman, outs himself as a homosexual in the issue, which hits shops on Wednesday, according to pages which have leaked online.

The revelation comes in a conversation with Jean Grey, during which Bobby is exasperated that his older self doesnt seem to be gay. Bobby has historically dated women, including a relationship with fellow X-Man Kitty Pryde.

Bobby suggests that he could be bi -- a distinction Jean agrees with, adding the qualifier that she thinks hes more...full gay. Bobby also suggests that perhaps his older self simply had never come out because he couldnt handle being a mutant as well as gay, the implication seemingly being that a trip to the future is enough for the younger Bobby to feel open with himself.

With the public face of race relations seemingly taking on a less overtly hostile nature in the United States, the X-Mens long-standing narrative metaphor of discrimination and segregation has largely been transferred from being a metaphor about people of color to being a metaphor about LGBT people in recent years.

All-New X-Men #40 hits the stands on Wednesday in comic shops and digitally on Marvel.com and comiXology.

Maybe Scorpion Is A Little Too Popular In Mortal Kombat X

12 people viewing this

games | By NewLegends - 25 minutes ago

Hes on the cover of the latest Mortal Kombat game. Hes widely regarded as the one of the most iconic fighting game characters. Everyone knows the GET OVER HERE catchphrase. Despite being somewhat of a villain, Scorpion is well-loved by Mortal Kombat players.

And why not? Look at him. Hes an undead ninja with hellfire powers. He can do this, for crying out loud:

Scorpion is cool. Fact! And yet, since the release of Mortal Kombat X Ive seen one common complaint among some Mortal Kombat fans: too many people are playing as Scorpion online. Observe.


This round-up does not include the innumerable number of people online that I saw claiming they were choosing Scorpion as their main, for what its worth.

I couldnt help but wonder: was Mortal Kombat X actually overrun with Scorpions online? Or were people exaggerating? This is hardly scientific, but I hopped into 10 online player matches recently, and at least half of them were Scorpion, yes. But obviously, thats not enough data.

When I looked at the leaderboards for the PS4 yesterday, I didnt neccesarily see Scorpion everywhere. The only list that included Scorpion in the top ten was the ranked player list, and as you can see here, rdales doesnt have more matches than most players represented on the leaderboard:

What about average players that arent tearing up leaderboards, though? Thankfully, Mortal Kombat X does give player stats. Annoyingly, theyre displayed only on the Online page in random snippets. You cant control what the game shows you; it just throws trivia at you. Ive stared at this screen for hours, hoping that it would tell me how often Scorpion has been used so far. Along the way, I learned how often other characters are selected, which is still useful!

More than double than most of the characters I just highlighted. For real.

Now lets say for arguments sake that this still leaves a lot of other characters, which very well may be popular. But in my experience, most characters trail far behind Scorpion. The only character that comes close is Subzero, and hes still trailing behind Scorpion by a few million.

This probably isnt surprising, right? Scorpion has always been a popular character. Of course that didnt change in the latest game. Its just interesting to see the numbers stack up like this. Its also interesting to consider within the wider range of multiplayer games out there. Most games have a character like thissomeone that everyone likes to flock to. Smash Bros. had Diddy and Little Mac. Street Fighter 4 has Ken and Ryu. Mario Kart 8 has a ton of Links.

So why does something like this happen; why isnt there a more even spread of popular characters? First off, that never happens. People always have their favorites in everythinghave you taken a look at how the Faction War is playing out in Mortal Kombat? Nobody wants to be Special Forces. Everyone is picking Lin Kuei, and as a result, theyre steamrolling all the other factions.

When it comes to characters in video games specifically, my guess is that highly-picked characters occur thanks to a mix of good design and ease of use. The easier a character is to pick up, the more people will play that character, and the more that the fanbase will start to dislike that character. Thats just how things go...but this also means that negative sentiments around popular characters are sometimes rooted in elitism. Can you blame anyone, though? Its hard not to get annoyed at anything youve overexposed to. Even the catchiest song will turn into the devil once you listen to it enough times.

To be clear, I dont want to police the choices of anyone reading this. If youre interested in Scorpion, play Scorpion! You do you. But this information about Scorpion interests me for two reasons. One, I love the personalities that characters in multiplayer take on based entirely on the people who play them. Theres always a character that everyone loves. Theres always a character that everyone hates. And there are characters in-between, all of which offer us a window into the soul of the person playing the game. You might be able to tell a thing or two from a person that likes to play, say, the Zeus in Dota 2, or Teemo in League of Legends. And everyone knows that the people who like to be snipers in shooters are kind of the worst. What might we say about a Scorpion players, the most common Mortal Kombat fans of them all? Im curious to know.

The other reason why this information matters to me is because Ive been agonizing over what character to main in Mortal Kombat. Now that I know that everyone and their mom is playing as Scorpion, Im probably gonna try picking someone else. No offense, Scorpion players. I just gotta pretend Im some unique butterfly or some sh*t.


I was too lazy to post the images so here's the original article


Scorpion and the Lin Kuei are out of hand

NBA Giannis Antetokounmpo and Michael Carter-Williams are killing the Bucks' offense

53 people viewing this

sports | By UptownBronx92 - 53 minutes ago

young Bucks have shot horrendously in the first two games and can't convert their drives to the basket.

Quote:

For the Milwaukee Bucks to have any chance against the Chicago Bulls in their first-round series, the Bucks' offense was going to have to step up and support their swarming defense. Unfortunately for Milwaukee, the offense has only had brief glimpses of competency mixed in with droughts featuring too many contested jumpers and botched layups in the first two games

The Bucks shot just over 39 percent in the 103-91 Game 1 loss on Saturday, playing right into the Bulls' hands by taking nearly 42 percent of their shots from the mid-range area. Tom Thibodeau's Bulls teams have always done a good job forcing teams into those mid-range attempts and taking away the three-point line. That was a key factor in that Game 1 victory.

Bucks youngsters Michael Carter-Williams and Giannis Antetokounmpo really struggled from mid-range in Game 1, going a combined 2-of-12 from that zone. Carter-Williams took eight of his 13 shots from outside the paint (all twos), per NBA.com, despite having a notable size advantage at the point guard spot. He shot just over 29 percent from mid-range on the season, so the Bulls will gladly give up those kinds of shots all night.

Milwaukee made it a point to attack the rim more in Game 2, and according to SportVU, the Bucks had 40 drives on the night (Carter-Williams had 12 himself) to just 19 for Chicago. Also, when you look at the shot chart, you see that they had a higher percentage of shots at the rim and less from mid-range:

Also, when you look at the shot chart, you see that they had a higher percentage of shots at the rim and less from mid-range:

Bucks Game 2
Instead of nearly 42 percent of their shots from mid-range like in Game 1, only a third of the Bucks' shots came from that zone. Nearly 37 percent of their attempts came at the rim after only about 29 percent came there in the first game. That's good!

The problem here is that Milwaukee blew a ton of layups and still couldn't hit the broad side of a barn from three in a 91-82 defeat. Khris Middleton went 3-of-7 from long range in Game 2. The rest of the Bucks combined went 1-of-10.

As noted, Carter-Williams did a better job attacking the basket, including a couple nifty floaters in the paint. However, he was a contributor to that horrific 11-of-33 mark from the restricted area, making just 1-of-5 shots at the rim.

Yet Antetokounmpo was an even bigger culprit. He made just 1-of-7 shots at the rim on Monday, with several missed bunnies that were inexcusable. He made just one of his other four shots, which all came on twos from outside the paint. He's really having a rough go of it thus far in his first playoff series.

Antetokounmpo and Carter-Williams together is killing the Bucks' offense. Through these first two games of the series, Carter-Williams has shot 9-of-25 from the field, while Antetokounmpo is 6-of-24. The duo has only attempted two three-pointers between them, and not surprisingly, both missed. Spacing is a major issue with these two on the court together because nobody respects their outside shooting:

Bucks bad spacing
Out of the top five most-used lineups featuring both Carter-Williams and Antetokounmpo on the floor this series, only the starting lineup has an offensive rating over 78. That unit is scoring 92.6 points per 100 possessions, per NBA.com, which is terrible in its own right. These are very small sample sizes, and the duo actually had a good amount of success in the regular season, posting a 104.4 offensive rating together in 580 minutes. However, their flaws are being magnified in the postseason.

The Bucks have no chance of getting back into this series if those two don't start to perform better. We shouldn't expect them to start knocking down jumpers given their track records, but if they keep attacking the basket, you'd think those percentages at the rim will go up.
