  1. It's funny how some of my fondest memories of Adult Swim are from before I was an adult compared to now. Just thinking back to many of my school years spent having it on with the volume low when I should've been in bed.

      Same here man. That was part of my nightly ritual for so long, and I might've even gotten in trouble for it once or twice. Watching on school nights really wasn't the best idea, but younger me just had to catch the Detective Conan dub. 

      That period of my life... wasn't great, but it's nice to have at least some things to look back on fondly. 

  2. I swear my Gamecube looks worse hooked up to my HD TV than it ever looked on my old CRT TV that I no longer have. I wonder if 3rd party composite/HDMI cables exist for it.

      It's not just you, old consoles look legitimately bad on HDTV's without a component or HDMI cable. Last I heard there was one guy selling his own HDMI cables online but I think they bricked the systems or something.

      This is the only reason my Wii is still on my TV stand. It Gamecubes better than my actual Gamecube does.

      The Gamecube does have component cables... but they're super rare and will run you about $200 (last time I checked, mind you). Now, if you have a Wii that's backwards compatible, you can get component cables for that for cheap. Either way though, in my opinion even with component my Wii/Gamecube looks far better on my CRT than on my HDTV (to be fair, I have a really good CRT). Using composite on an HDTV just looks like absolute garbage though.

      I need a component cable for my PS1 to look good, you all mean?

      DAMN IT! We don't use component cables in my country.

      That's what happens when you don't use the full resolution of the screen you're on sadly. See it all the time when I play my PS4 on the 1440p monitor. You're stretching the image and making things blurrier as a result. Though yeah, component cables do help quite a bit in this case.

    5. Ferno

      almost wish there was a "shrink the image into a box" option in that case, similar to playing DS games on a 3DS

    6. Mad Convoy

      It has to do with resolution. GC games were designed for smaller TVs with less capacity for detail. Even component cables can only do so much.

      Affects a lot of old games, 3D especially since there’s less options than 2D that you can implement to offset the stretchy blur effect. I actually prefer playing N64 games on my WiiU tablet because the screen is small enough that you can get the benefit of higher resolutions without sacrificing the visual quality of the game. But I do think it’s possible to adjust modern TV settings to shrink the amount of screen that the TV is actually displaying stuff on, so you can input the dimensions of a CRT on those settings if it really bothers you (just don’t forget to change the settings back when you switch over to more modern stuff!).

      @Polkadi~♪ PS1's can't use Component cables. For that you'll have to use a PS2 or PS3 (the former if you have a CRT, the latter as a last resort because the PS3 auto-upscales to whatever resolution you have the TV at and can't handle dithering worth a damn). Now I don't know if Australian TV's have support for RGB SCART, but if they do go for that. RGB is sightly better than Component anyways.

      EDIT: And as for the Gamecube situation... one option is to use a homebrewed Wii U, which can play GC games and upscale them to HD over HDMI at the same time. For more info on that, watch this:

      Now with that being said you'd need a way to rip said Gamecube games but it's still an option.

  3. Bit the bullet and finally got a Smash Ultimate Gamecube controller on Ebay because the price is probably never gonna drop to pre-smash-ultimate-release levels again. Didn't get it for smash though but for my old gamecube so I can finally finish my original copies of Windwaker and TTYD. (Never finished TTYD back in the day but I was like 80% there, and I wanna retry WW now that I'm actually into Zelda and WWHD probably isn't coming to the Switch.) I also ordered a new condition "1019" memory card since I'm sure the old memory cards I have are aging, plus they were smaller capacity "59" ones so they're both full. Feeling retro af right now.

      Wired or wireless?  I use the wireless ones (When my Switch is running well 😞)

    2. Ferno

      Wired. I wanted rumble so it can be as close to my old GC controller as possible.

      dang its impressive how much great music can improve these scenes. theres not enough hype stuff like You Say Run in One Piece, hopefully some of the new music that'll come when Wano starts is like this

  5. this MHA episode tho

      Wait, is the new season already going on?

    2. Ferno

      i dunno, just saw the ep on Toonami where Camie appears 

    3. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      @Strickerx5 New season starts in October, I believe. Toonami will be caught up with it by then.

  6. I just realized that Bo Peep never got a satisfying good bye/ sendoff from Andy like Woody and the other toys did. I wonder if that'll be brought up or be a plot point in any way.

  7. Would be nice to have a second Switch dock for the living room TV so I don't have to move the one from my room, etc, but I can't justify spending 60-80 bucks on one considering it's just a lump of plastic with different ports inside. Sure Nintendo may be justifying the price based on what you're DOING with said lump of plastic and I can kinda see that point of view, but still.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Yeah. It's crazy that the dock, which you're really only buying to be an HDMI and charger port, is about as expensive as the already costly controllers. If should be no more than £20

  8. tried out uber eats and grub hub days ago and am about to try door dash. the future can be pretty ok sometimes tbh

    1. Milo

      Milo

      i kinda forget we live in that age of people bringing stuff to you and generally assume it's something i only see online

      then i go somewhere and see delivery people and cars with those brands and i'm like "oh they exist here too"

      (i still feel that way with lyft and uber as well. mild surprise when i see them out in the wild)

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      Started using uber recently too. Beats walking home, waiting for siblings to get off work hours later to pick me up, or awkwardly asking coworkers for rides on days when I don't have the car.

    3. Your Vest Friend

      I pay for a three monthly bus pass then walk the rest 95% of the time. 

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      My job is like juuuust close enough to walk to but juuust far enough that its tiring on hot days, (about an hour on foot, 5-10 mins by car,) plus busses don't really come through my corner of town as often as other areas.

  9. I'm happy The Boondocks is coming back with the original creator involved tbh. Always felt like 3 seasons was too short. (Purposely glossing over the 4th season)

    This is technically for gaming but I mainly got it to have accessible shortcut keys when tilting up my screen tablet at any angle besides flat on the table (previously I had to lay it flat to comfortably reach my laptop keyboard behind it.) It's probably the best accessory I've bought in recent months tbh

  11. i feel like i just watched a full dubbed 22 minute anime episode tbh

     

  12. "we charging at thanos full force, or are we creepin' up on him sneaky-beaky like?"

  13. oh my god

    suddenly its like 2007(?) for me again when Shippuden hype was still real and part 2 still had potential to surpass part 1 because you didn't know what to expect yet

  14. Is funny how with BotW 2 Nintendo is probably coming at it from the angle of "you stopped playing BotW years ago so now you get to return to its world." but in my case I never stopped playing for longer than months at a time since it came out

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Its become one of those games I constantly restart because I keep putting it down and then get the urge again a few months later.

      It's to the point that the barrel has been scraped so far now for the most well known characters that Rayman is still inevitable imo, so I'm still hopeful.
