  1. *gets asked by the very-detail-oriented commissioner to show right-then-and-there progress on a commission when coloring is half done and nothing is looking pretty/presentable yet* *immediately gets tons of notes on stuff to change/ add with the colors, most of which i was already gonna add in* *they also just asked if i have more slots open after this is done* im tired. i have another all-day shift tomorrow. the past week 'n a half have been all-day shifts ending at 6pm, directly followed by all-night drawing-while-running-on-fumes sessions, then going to bed at 3am, then waking up and going back to work by 9am. wrists hurt. comms are gonna be closed for awhiiile after this

      Eh, better to have a line than to not have one. If you are burnt out I'm sure the dude will understand if you can't take on the next commission just yet.

  2. IIRC SuMo are the bestselling Pokemon games, what are the odds SwSh will surpass that?

    1. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      There are probably quadruple the number of 3DS/DS 's in the wild as there are Switch's. 

      Sw and Sh will sell well, but its damn hard to compete with the install base as large as those handhelds.

  3. Yo I cant stress enough how much Marza is killing it with the Lupin movie

      It might not have been quite that long, but its been a while. I remember the rumors flying around from before they were even connected to the Sonic movie.

      I don't think it got delayed either. Marza just takes their dear sweet time with most of their stuff.

      If the end results look that good, hey they can take twice as long for all I care.

  6. It’s funny how the Pokemon games ditched the asshole rival trope after Gen II, but the anime kept on with it up to Gen V.

      Those challenge maps on God Hard.... that last one makes me cry just thinking about it.

  9. It's good they're making more animated shorts for future games. Mania Adventures was a really cool way of promoting Mania Plus.

    1. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      I wonder how much of an impact these movies have on the game sales tho... I feel like they appeal almost entirely to mega-fans whom are already extremely likely to buy these games anyway.

      Maybe the movies are more about generating good-will within the fanbase than pushing units?

  10. Question: if the FF were brought into IDW, would you rather have them and Sonic already have a history (not to the extent of Archie Sonic) or would you want them to not know each other?

    1. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      I'd rather skip an "introduction arc" and focus more on what they offer in the here and now.

       

      They could just be a team like the Diamond Cutters and have worked with Sonic and co on a ton of missions in the past.

  12. Famitsu scored Mario and Sonic Olympics 2020 higher than Luigi's Mansion 3 lmao

  13. I've really warmed up to Ash's new design, the outfit especially, as he's right back to the Red/Green/Blue/Yellow color combo he always had before the sudden change to only red+blue that he got in XY and SM. I just wish he had gloves again. I know fingerless gloves are ultra-90's but they just feel right on him imo.

      OMG he's a youngster now. His rattata will be in the top percentile.

  14. Does anyone else feel like Mario's oversaturation is starting to catch up to him, not just from the RPGs?

    Sure, he still has great games recently like Odyssey, SMM2, MK8D, Tennis Aces and even the Rabbids game ended up being way better than it had any right to be. Luigi's Mansion 3 looks to knock it outta the park too. (If you over look the paid DLC for the multiplayer modes) Now, let's look at the flip side:

    Spoiler
    • Mario Kart's last real new installment, as stellar as it is, was five and half years ago. And right now, we got a mediocre mobile app no thanks Nintendo being forced to pander to the mobile market, where players can blindly roll for all of the baby charcters from the start, but not Luigi.

     

    • 2D Mario still ain't getting the proper attention and tuneup it needs. Besides Maker and Run, the only "New" Super Mario Bros right now is a Wii U port with an added Rule 63 influencing Easy Mode. It surprising that an actual New SMB for Switch hasn't even been annouced at this point. Then again, do we even want another anyway?

     

    • Super Mario Party has been stuck with the same four tiny board maps for a whole year, yet there's no sign of DLC for it anywhere. It can go back to the old gameplay but still can hardy scratch what the Hudson era games had; even the first Mario Party had more content than this

     

    • Mario & Luigi faces getting discontinued if the bankrupcy falls through and no one else steps in to take control of the series.

     

    • Paper Mario these days is dreaded more than impatiently anticipated. Where it will go next is uncertain.

     

    • Any other Mario sports game not made by Camelot or SEGA have not yet been greenlit for a Switch installment.

     

    • And the Mini Mario Vs DK. series needs to burn in a dumpster fire and never come back.

     

            Plus, if we count character spinoffs:

    • Donkey Kong tooks his best game, put it on a better console and gave it a Funky Mode. Retro Studio was barely heard from untill they were brought in to work on MP4, so the series is now left in the dark. (This could change with the company opening up new job positions.)

     

    • Yoshi's Crafted World wasn't called as good as Wooley World, so it's possible they can't rely on Good-Feel doing the games forever.

    I'll make it clear that none of this is at the scale Sonic is in. It's not really a dire situation by any strech, but it does look kinda bumpy in general quality. For people who complain there are too many Mario games releasing, their opinion holds a bit more weight now. Not that I think any Mario spinoff shouldn't get a second chance, but I wonder if Nintendo is thinking about slowing down on Mario releases.

    (Somewhat expecting to eat those words on that last part when 2020 gets more Mario than ever)

      Wasn't the Tennis game thrashed for not being up to par at release?

  16. P5 final boss spoilers 

    you know, I would've been cool with President Shido being the final boss but they really had to do the jrpg trope of giant robot God angel as the final boss I guess. I didn't necessarily go into the game expecting constant subversions but damn it does not gel with the rest of the games tone at all and feels kinda lazy making the ills of society solely due yo one big bad guy 

    1. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      Spoiler

       

      Which in of itself is a frightening hot take on society. People want to be subjected to the status quo because they don't want to have to face the reality of dealing with their true selves. Thats why they willingly gave in to Yalda, and why it took such a powerful wildcard to overcome him. An entire games's worth of changing hearts (both the main missions and momentos side gigs) was preparing the hearts and minds of society at large to abandon the paradigm and make the jump.

      One of the bad endings for the game is accepting the status quo - even after all the struggling you did to change it.

  17. I’ve been meaning to try the Yakuza series, just played Yakuza 0 for a little while. It was already up my alley with the combat system but then I got the big tough Yakuza guy to get *really* into karaoke and I think I love this.

      All Sonic characters have some degree of Super Speed. Even Big is busting speedometers at a casual jog.

      Tails keeps up with Sonic, so not only should he have super speed, but a measure of super speed beyond any of the non-speed type characters.

  19. Im enjoying p5 but I cannot stand the rule of if Joker dies it's a instant game over even if your party is alive I think it's such a BS penalty to have in a rpg 

    1. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      The time is dependent on how good a job you do capturing different personas.

      If you are diligent in acquiring new personas as you enter new areas then you can summon them from your compendium at any point in the future. Once you start filling in the catalog, its not an issue of time, but rather $$$.

      If you never recruit new personas, and just stick to the ones your running until they hit their eventual cap... then it requires backtracking to find and obtain the missing personas for your desired fusions.

       

      With a small army to choose from at the end of the game, you can fuse, and then fuse the fusions to makes some insane beasts. Since you choose what skills the next generation will inherit, a Gen 3 fusion is all it takes to inherit enough nulls/resists to be unstoppable.

      if you spent even a little amount of time in the fusion engine, then Joker should be rocking a handful of personas that either resist or outright null almost all damage.

      My Joker was borderline broken by the last few palaces.

      Cause she missed out on forces so I would love to see her back.

      There is an &Knuckles joke in here somewhere.

  23. I like how there's that one zora in BotW who will give you a diamond in exchange for 10 luminous stones; but the combined worth of 10 luminous stones is higher than a diamond, soooo...shove that diamond right up your gill-holes, good sir.

    1. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      Its not about the value of the item, its about having a guaranteed diamond drop to re-forge one of the Zora specific weapons.

      Not that those weapons were anything all to special, but if you lost your ornamental Zora weapon, and wanted to get another you could always make another one by giving up a diamond in exchange.

    the specific animations and even hitting the opposition physically is things we kinda got in Battle Revolution.

      "Dang, I need to play some more bootlegs".
