It really seems that way. It used to be all over the internet, now the more I go on, the less and less I see of it. It used to be that if you made the slight mention of MLP, even if it was subtle, it would ignite a very bloody flame war. Nowadays I don't seem to notice as much... Though if that's still a thing, then I'm probably not paying enough attention. Me... I admit, my interest has been dwindling a bit. I think the hiatus between season 3 and 4 might have contributed to it. Also, the brony fanservice didn't really bother me that much until around "Three's a Crowd." I think the novelty of pop culture references that the original intended audiences wouldn't get wore off on me, and at times it's either hit or miss. Not to mention, there have been times in this season where it feels like the it's trying capture the tone of the more over-the-top IDW comics, Which I'm not a big fan of. I still get some enjoyment out of the show, don't get me wrong. I thought Amending Fences was pretty good as well. But so far, I haven't spent time looking up fan ficition or fan-art like I did during the first few seasons.
Thanks! Sorry about the broken images, it seems that the board's change might have screwed them up. Even so, they're older ones, not really anything too spectacular. Yeah, I always have so many Ideas, and very little stories written out! But all in due time, of course.
And yes, Kit-Tii is a very fun character to draw, and one of my favorites. Good to know people are liking her design!
My dad has recently gotten into Attack on Titan... So when I told him that this existed, to say he was disappointed was a bit of an understatement. In all seriousness though, he indeed was not that happy to hear this was coming out instead of season two... I'm not too sure how much content there is to make a season two, but even so, this doesn't really catch my eye TBH. I'm probably just gonna keep waiting for season 2.
Nothing much today. A WIP of a comic I'm working on at the moment. There's quite a few things I noticed that are messed up, so I'll get to them pretty soon, here. Also, I like the expression. I tend to press too hard on my paper when drawing, so you can see why I chose to color these digitally.
Part of me got a little tired of Batman's"lolbatman" schtick after a while, but the more fun side in me thought it fit with the tone of the movie, and I couldn't help but wonder what Batman's world would be like and how other Batman characters would act in this universe With that said, I was actually very pleased to hear the news when it first came out, and the idea of one big parody of Batman movies sounds very clever! I look forward to seeing it when it comes out.
If you mean "victimize" as in trying to make other people look bad, I wasn't trying to do so nor did I have the intention of trying to make anyone look bad I just hate the fact that I, myself can't enjoy anything other people like. Let's face it, I hate my personal tastes. I could go on, but I feel like I'm already going off topic so I'll just apologize if I came across as rude or blaming other people for my interests and disinterests. Just disregard the question and enjoy the game. If you like Earthbound, then more power to you.
*Sigh* Another person finds this game to be a masterpiece while I'm just a stick in the mud, sitting here still playing and wondering what is it that's so incredible about this game. I mean, I got past Master Belch and I'm still finding the game to be a chore to go through. The charm of the artstyle just isn't enough to keep me going. I gotta ask, to those who actually like the game... What is it that kept you guys going on it? I mean, I've had some people admit that the gameplay isn't that great, and yet there was something about it that was keeping them going. What am I missing here? I really want to love this game, I really do. But with all the hype that everyone gives it, some even going as far as to call it the greatest game of all time, I have to say I'm feeling very underwhelmed with what I'm playing so far.
And you know it must be bad if this movie makes Roger Corman's 90s FF movie look like a masterpiece. Admittedly, I was more than willing to give this movie a chance when I first saw the trailer, even if it didn't look all that spectacular. However, judging from all the reactions and reviews, I can safely say I'm not going anywhere near this movie anytime soon. Like Pixels, the more I hear of it, the less I want to see it. Difference is, I'd actually be willing to rent Pixels at a later date, whereas I'm probably never going to see this one in my life time. My main beef with the Fantastic four movies, (At least the previous two and this one) is their tones... The previous one had a much more comedic tone, and at times was just downright cringe worthy. But with this one, from what I've seen and heard, is trying way too hard to be serious and grimdark, the exact opposite of the last two. I'd love to see a Fantastic Four movie in the same vein as Guardians of the Galaxy... A movie with comical fun and action, while managing to have serious moments with the characters and high stakes. On the topic of the sequel... Heh, good luck with that. If I've learned anything from movies that flopped, it's that the sequel never comes through. Just look at Last Airbender, Dragon Ball Evolution, and any other flop that failed to perform with the box office or the critics. If anything, I'm expecting a reboot in 2017... And even then, I'm skeptical as to how it'll perform.
Admittedly I wasn't really fond of them even being in Disney Infinity, so I can't really say for sure. Nothing against Marvel or Star Wars... I actually really love the two. It's just that I don't really think of Disney whenever I see them. Maybe a bit of connection, but they're really not the first thing I think of when think Disney. I've only played it on the GBA, and it was very dissapointing. The idea of having a Kingdom Hearts game on the go was very appealing to me (This was a while before 358/2 days and BBS was released... Heck I think it was before it was announced when I played it.) but the level design and the card battle system was just an overall mess. It's probably the only game I've ever ragequit on, and I never liked endings where the main character forgets every thing that happened on their quest... It just leaves an unsatisfied feeling overall. This game did sour me on game play that bears even a slight resemblance to the card system... That's pretty much why I couldn't bring myself to get excited for Paper Mario: Sticker Star. But I've never played the one on the Ps2... Is the gameplay any better than it was on the GBA?
I don't WANT them to use Star Wars or Marvel in Kingdom Hearts, but seeing as how they're in Disney Infinity, I really have no argument or reason as to why they shouldn't be in... damn it. :/ Pixar on the other hand I really wouldn't complain, I've always been interested in what a Toy Story or Incredibles world would bring to the table.
...Why.WHY? WHY?! To be honest, I wasn't really pissed off by the existence of it... After some of the disney DTV sequels and from what little of High School musical I've seen, I honestly expected this kind of stupidity to come out of the Disney Channel. I ended up watching the first act since the rest of the family was... it was as stupid as i was expecting, the plot, the premise, the songs, the attempts to appeal to the tweenage crowd (Seriously, the magic mirror they use might as well have been an iphone.) It was stupid, but I really wasn't all that pissed off tbh. What I don't get, is the love and praise that it's getting.
Green Aesops This is a relatively common one that people really hate, so I probably wont go into too much detail. Yes, we get it, the world is filthy and it needs to be cleaned... I think almost everyone gets it by now. Negative bonus points added if the trope contains misanthropic undertones (I'm looking at you, Avatar.) Freaky Friday Plot (Aka Body Swap plot) This one on the other hand everyone seems to love... me? I've always hated this plot device. It's the same damn plot every time. Two people who have differing personalities and views somehow end up swapping bodies, be it through a error in a science experiment, or a magical curse. HILARIOUS Hi-jinx ensue as the characters, now having switched their bodies, try to do the things the other does and screws things up in a wacky way while others around them wonder what's going on with their friends. It all ends with the characters getting back into their own bodies, and and then have a new found respect for one another. The end. It's probably funny the first few times you see it, but after a while, it's just kind of obnoxious seeing it in every show in existence has a plot like this, and it always turns out the same in the end. I really wish this trope would die off. Believe in yourself! (Couldn't find the name for this trope) Those three words have become one of my most hated morals ever made. Like the body swap plot device, almost every show ever made has to have some moral pertaining to this, and it's gotten really annoying. Yes, it's a good message but after having characters say this 100 times on TV, it's hard for me to take it seriously even in real life. Every time I hear those three little words I cringe violently. Not to mention, just because one believes in themselves doesn't mean they're always going to succeed. Yes, you're probably going to have better chances at being successful if you feel good about yourself, but the the way movie and show writers go about it, they always make it seem like belief in oneself will help you win everything in life. I'm sorry if I'm sounding like a cynical ass, but I've just seen and heard this saying so much, I just wanna punch the TV every time I hear those hamfisted words. Adults are useless This one seems kinda insulting to adults. Most often in cartoons where the kids are the heroes, the kids will often take matters into their own hands, no matter how dangerous or scary the situation is, without telling an adult. Though if one of the few times where if the said kid does let an adult know, sometimes even clearly terrified and wanting help, the adults will laugh it off or tell them that it was just their imagination... Going off of what someone else said about shows telling kids that keeping secrets from your parents is an okay thing to do, this trope also implies that adults wont do anything to help, seeing as how adults think everything kids say are lies. Eh, I dunno, maybe I'm just looking too deep into this... but it does really bug me when kids shows/movies do this, especially the latter example. Though I might make exceptions to this trope if the said kid is a well known liar or has a big imagination.
The knife is supposed to be a carved street sign. I got the idea from an article I read about a guy who fashions old street signs he finds in the junkyard into swords, and I thought it would be pretty fitting. The sign on the knife (Or at least the part that's visible,) says "View Ave," loosely named after a street nearby. But it's good to know that the post-apocalyptic style is showing. I kinda wanted to give the vibe off while still retaining a Dungeons and Dragons-esque style as well. Basically a D&D setting in the distant future. Thanks for the feedback!
I just got back from seeing Inside Out with my mom and sisters. While it might need some time to process the movie, I have to say that I came out more than pleased. We weren't able to see it during the week it opened, since the family wanted save on money for a roadtrip, and I don't like seeing Disney and Pixar movies without having family to tell my useless trivia and pointing out the easter eggs. For a while I was worried that this would be the first Pixar movie we wouldn't see in theaters. Thankfully that wasn't the case. But enough about me. Lets get to the movie. The Characters very lovable. You would think that characters who's main trait is based on emotions would be kinda flat, but the minds behind the movie really made the emotions believable and relateable characters, basically a bunch of people doing their jobs and doing what they think is right for Riley, while having emotions of their own as well. In my opinion I didn't find any characters really annoying. Someone has mentioned Sadness getting some hate, which kinda surprises me. C'mon! Look at her, don't you just wanna give her a big hug? As I said before, I'm still letting the movie sink in, but I have a feeling that I could end up in the boat with everyone else saying it'll end up being one of their favorite Pixar movies. The cartoony art style within the minds is a wonderful transition from the more grounded style of the real world. The story really gave of tons of "feels" (as the kids are saying these days) and overall creativity, the characters we're introduced to, outside and inside, are very likable. In addition, there's a ton of easter eggs, both from Disney and Pixar. I managed to catch the Haunted Mansion theme, a Finding Nemo board game called "Find Me" and and a picture of Figment from Disney's "Journey into Imagination." I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those movies where you'll find something new every time you watch it, very much like how the Lego Movie was with so much stuff happening in the background. Overall, a great flick! A wonderful watch after Pixars recent flicks, which ranged from decent to meh. I'm glad we managed to catch it in theaters.
