  1. At this point I am about to bail out of the Sonic franchise from the more pronounced missteps that have been going on from Lost World onwards. Yes there are gems like Generations, and Mania as well the Plus expansion for it but with games like Lost World, Boom, and Forces I just need to walk away while I still can. The live action movie gives me a sinking feeling in my gut much like the Need For Speed movie did to that franchise. Years of mismanagement resulting in uncertain futures in those franchises while musing about the golden years of them that are long gone. Maybe this could be the wake up call for what to properly do with the franchise or it could be the death knell of it.


    I will still appreciate the fan works created but the involvement will be on an observer basis instead of an active supporter basis until otherwise.

  2. Mornin' everyone!

      Where do you keep your Pokeballs?

      That’s none of your damn business Red

  4. I am legitimately interested in getting Pokemon Sword later this year. Looks rather good from my standpoint.

  5. Astral Chain and the "Links Awakening" remake look rather interesting to me and might pick up later this year. Not quite ready for another Fire Emblem title as I still need to work through the others on my 3DS backlog. Slightly bummed that Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime Trilogy are MIA. Mario Maker 2 I am not ready to go through "Kaizo Mario" levels made by other people channeling their inner Satan.

    1. Blacklightning


      I never bothered with Expert Mode for this reason.

      Regular 100 Mario isn't always pleasant either but it's definitely where all the variety happens.

  6. Morning everyone.

      Good morning. It’s afternoon on my end so good afternoon to you too 🙂

  8. I beat the Pauline "Spirit Battle" in Smash Bros. Ultimate in World of Light last night. Whoever created that battle should be crucified and stoned.

    1. Failinhearts


      Get a Spirit that equips a Staff for you.

      You can beat it in 3 seconds.

    2. Milo


      misread pauline as palutena and i thought "well that won't solve anything, the designer would then come back from the dead three days later"

    3. Adamabba


       The cpu just killed itself on my 2nd try fighting it. It was the first legend class spirit I got lol

    4. Cobalt_Bolt


      I did get a Spirit that equips a Staff. Problem was Mario and DK being complete aholes ganging up on me within those three seconds I had. I was glad that the final attempt led to her Self-destructing for nabbing her.

  9. Got the three Zero spirits in Smash Bros. Ultimate. Worth the number of matches.

    1. Forte-Metallix


      Beating him in a regular match is a pretty good feeling, too. He's definitely one of the toughest Assist characters.

  10. Guess the Rams feel despair after losing to the Patriots.

  11. Morning everyone!

  12. The good of 2018 from a personal standpoint:

    Helped get two exhibits at the LeMay Car Museum set up. (BMW Motorsport exhibit funded via Indiegogo, Tuner exhibit cars guided into the bottom level for setup and helped the owner of one of said tuner cars on display touch up the details of it.)


    Getting help through professional therapy and a TBI support group.


    Went to two weddings for my cousins and the weather cooperated on those days.


    Volunteered at the anime convention in my neck of the woods.


    Adopted a new cat as of November 2018.


    That's the good for 2018. A rough year overall with the bad weighing quite heavily.

    Hope I can catch some rabbits for 2019 cause I really need some good luck right now.

    1. Kiah


      Glad to you you had some good amid the bad and it sucks that the bad won out. 

      Still hoping things turn around and get better for you soon.

  13. Looking back on 2018 from a personal standpoint starting with the bad:


    Terminated from my job at Amazon due to the aftermath of an incident that occurred in 2017 as well as finding out more about that company's deplorable labor practices and corporate culture bringing about more anger towards that company as a whole resulting in actively discouraging people to work for them as well as protesting.


    More paperwork for the legal case that started in 2017 and the opposing party still not paying a dime as well as causing stress in the family with a false court summons on their terms.


    Grandmother getting a heart-attack causing quite a bit of concern leaving the family wondering if this is going to be her last year alive.


    False start for college after finding out one the required courses involved my Achilles Heel subjects from school (Math) as well as the leviathan of paperwork that led to said false start.


    Rot in hell 2018!

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      So how will 2019 start then?

    2. Kiah


      Where’s the good? 🙂

      Sorry you went through all that. I really hope things look up for you very soon as well as 2019 being a much better year in comparison to 2018. 

  14. Been playing Smash Ultimate quite a bit lately. Soo many soundtracks to unlock and characters to play with. Take a break Sakurai as you've definitely earned it.

  15. I've built up a hatred of phone trees and phone tag of insurance companies and federal agencies over the last year. Phone tag when one company/agency has no information but the other might and forces the caller into a sizable qeue for the next available agent while your phone is being drained during said qeue. Phone trees when you have to go through the correct way through the labyrinth of menu options where a wrong number can force a restart on said call or a sizeable qeue for the next available agent while the battery is being drained during said qeue. Is it that fucking hard to put a human on the line that knows what their doing! 🤬

  16. Quick summary of the new cat that me and my family have as of two weeks: She likes to see my father and I, but she is rather skittish around my mother as she is the one that feeds her, changes her litter box, and tries to discipline her. My mother is feeling rather saddened by that and regrets getting her. I hope the issue sorts itself out at some point. This cat is different from our previous one so this is new territory for us.

  17. Excelsior Stan Lee. for all the stories you've told over the years. R.I.P.

  18. Just got home with an adopted cat from the Humane Society. Her name is Ophelia and is a rather sweet cat. She's 10 months old and just tugs at the heartstrings. It will be a little strange getting used to having a cat once again after our previous one.

    1. tailsBOOM!


      You need to get another one named Hamlet!

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Give her much snuggles and boops. And take many photos.

    3. Zaysho


      We adopted a little stray a little while after our first passed, and while it was a bit odd at first (since she was more or less filling a void) you start to get attached and it's actually pretty interesting seeing just how different one cat's personality can be from another. I'm sure Ophelia will be a joy to watch grow.

    4. Cobalt_Bolt


      I am waiting on the photo part until she's used to the space and people in her new home. The snuggles and boops I can happily oblige.

    5. Cobalt_Bolt


      There was a kitten at the Humane Society shelter named Miles we were looking at but Ophelia won out for us.

    6. tailsBOOM!


      Poor Miles though 😞 

    7. Kiah


      Awww that’s so sweet. I’m sure Ophelia will be very much loved and care for!

      I hope we can have the chance to see the precious little lady and that you and your family will have wonderful memories with her. 

    8. Cobalt_Bolt


      @tailsBOOM! Miles was far too rambunctious for us to handle with being a kitten and you know how kittens need constant supervision.

    9. tailsBOOM!


      I hope he gets a nice home though 😞 

    10. Cobalt_Bolt


      I think he will.

  19. Looks like Youtube is back online...

    for now.

    1. SgtBloxx


      Finally. I thought it would be down for a few more hours.

    2. KHCast


      Now I can go back to rick rolling 

  20. Seems like someone at Youtube has deferred maintenance again in regards to their code and servers.

  21. Got into an argument with my old man and found out that my grandmother had a heart-attack on Wednesday. Things are a bit tense on my end now as a result of those two things. The old man is heading down to Arizona to see her while mother and I are at home doing what we can. It's hard for me to play nice with my old man as he did help get the lawsuit against the opposing party though on the otherhand he needs to know I can't take the kind of arguments like I could before the incident. At this point it's like a "Cold War" at home.

    1. RedFox99


      I'm sorry that things have been rough for you.

    2. Kiah


      Sorry to hear all that is happening as that’s really rough. I hope your grandmother recovers and I hope things ease up at home soon. 

    3. Cobalt_Bolt


      I don't know if my grandmother will recover as she is in her 80's which will affect said recovery time. It feels that life has been taking it's pound of flesh from me and my family since 2017.

    4. RedFox99


      I can't say for sure if I can relate, but I know what it can feel like when life isn't easy. I know this is whether cliche, but try to look on the bright side of things and maybe cry if you have to let your emotions out.

    5. Cobalt_Bolt


      It's easier said than done with everything on my plate that's still pilling on. I just don't know if I can cry or curse at this point. Perhaps both.

  22. Been playing Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition since 9pm in my time zone. I've already gotten nearly 50 cars in my garage. Sadly next to no Toyota or Lexus on the roster. Mitsubishi and Rolls Royce are M.I.A. as well which is odd considering Rolls Royce is well known in the UK. Toyota and Mitsubishi it could be shades of an exclusive licensing deal that is rather frustrating for gamers as well as car enthusiasts from nearly twenty years ago (see NFS and Porsche exclusive deal)

    1. Strickerx5


      Can't wait to get my hands on the standard edition next week. Loved 3 and that demo runs so smoothly on my PC... mmmm.

    2. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Well if Forza Horizon 4 is really set in the UK, Toyota and Mitsubishi aren't really big names over here. Toyota used to be bigger though but we are talking literally years and are only known for the Aygo these days that is like a VW up or SEAT Mii. Lexus is sort of niche (I know that they have showrooms but they aren't popular) and I'm guessing that Rolls Royce is just too expensive/or fuddy duddy to license (have they ever being in a game?). Shame for those who want to drive those cars though (e.g. Celica or Lancer Evo), the latter two would be fitting for rally or off road. I can see how frustrating it is that your favorite car isn't in the game.

      Out of curiosity regarding the roster, are the following cars in the game? VW Polo/Golf/up, Nissan Leaf, Vauxhall Corsa/Astra/Mokka, BMW M or any number higher than 1 (the drug dealer car), Ford Fiesta/Focus, Skoda Octavia (the taxi driver car), Fiat 500, Mercedes B/C-Class, SEAT Mii, Dacia Mini Cooper (iconic version, slightly bigger from mid-00s and the massive Clubman/modern Mini). Rarely I see Lamborghini unknown model, Ferrari unknown model, Subaru Impreza (similar to what Colin McRae drove), Nissan Micra, Mazda Eunos Roadster (yes, that and not the MX-5), Aston Martin Vanquish and the VW camper van/Beetle.

      Just that they are the cars that I tend to see when going out. Used to also see Ford Escort/Mondeo/Sierra, Vauxhall Vectra/Calibra/Cavallier, VW Passat, Nissan Standza, the blooming crappy Lada and some of the older models of the above but many of them don't exist now. Lucky to get a car older than 2005 on the road.

    3. Cobalt_Bolt


      @Mr Loopone Rolls Royce was in Horizon 3. There are VW Golf's, Vauxhall Corsa, BMW M series, classic and modern Mini's, Subaru Impreza's are a few on the 400+ roster. Sadly no SEAT.

  23. T-minus 1 hour 40 min for Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition in my time zone. The wait is killing me.

  24. Gotta wait until 9:00 PM to play Forza Horizon 4 (Ultimate Edition) but until then I can play with Cooler in Dragon Ball FighterZ planting D@#!$ss Trees in the process.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Is there any new dramatic finishes with Cooler? 

      Ive seen a few of his intros and found them really cool, especially with the nice piece of connecting the movies to canon, Cooler mentions that King Cold warned him about Buu and Beerus, which is what Frieza said in Resurrection F.
