      Now people say that this years E3 was bad. Now I won't say it was great... but it wasn't Nintendo's E3 2008 press conference bad.

      Yeah, Lusamine’s battle was the weirdest part of Gen VII.

      …Oh, that 7th gen.

  2. being born in 1991, I constantly have to remind myself that I don't get to look forward to sonic anniversaries without being just as old. for example when the 30th anniversary game comes out in 2021, I'll already be 30 myself too ohgodohfuc

  3. Toy Story 4 spoilers:

      Tbf it is a realistic portrayal of a child and their ever-alternating tastes.

  4. Really wish I got to see Tarzan and Treasure Planet in theaters growing up tbh, especially since we'll probably never get 2D animated movies on that sort of technical scale from an american studio again.

    1. QuantumEdge

      QuantumEdge

      Or Atlantis and Dinosaur (I know the visuals for it aren't so hot now, but back then they were magical).  Point is the death of 2D in film is a tragedy the media never bothers to recognise.

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      Atlantis is another movie that I wish took off because like Titan AE, it was trying to be an all-ages animated film similar to any anime movie/ anime in general, but both flopped because we're so set in our ways of seeing animation as a kids medium and movie goers were confused.

    3. Sean

      I saw Atlantis in theaters, honestly I thought it was pretty terrible as a kid and looking back at it now I'm still not too fond of it. It's just kind of a mess and for some reason Atlantis (the city) doesn't have the appropriate mystique that the first third of the movie was building up to. That's subjective however. Treasure Planet is great though.

  5. boruto's generation is weak af tbh

    1. Marcello

      Marcello

      I like that things have been toned down in Boruto. By the end of Naruto they were too crazy strong.

  6. my ctrl-z hand's kinda hurtin...really gonna need to ergonomic-i-tize my main workspace soon

  7. that attack on titan ep ended me tbh

      and now The Promised Neverland too

       

      everybody's burning to death tonight wtf ;w;

  8. I never get tired of that little scanning noise that some game systems make nonstop as they constantly read the disc of the game you're playing. To me that's just a gaming sound(tm) *tries to look as lame as an E3 stage presenter while saying that*

    1. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      With my Sonic Heroes disc there's this certain scanning noise right before a menu is about to finish loading that my GCN and Wii make. I found it interesting that both consoles made the exact same noise

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      thats the console cringing for a moment because its heroes amirite

  9. I'm almost tempted to track down a tiny CRT TV just to hook my gamecube to tbh. Or I may just track down a Wii since I need one anyway to finally play my copy of Rodea the Sky Soldier that I bought in case I'd ever have a Wii again

    1. Ferno

      Also I'm kicking myself that I didn't get a Gamecube until 2005 because I have the later model that only has the AV cable option in the back. Basically the back of my Gamecube looks like this:

      It's like I'm being eternally punished for being a late adopter ;w;

  10. Toy Story 4 currently holds a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. 1 percent less and it'll fall below the legacy of the previous films. Still even if it ultimately gets an 80 or something it'll still be good, it's just that, well, the other 3 set the bar impossibly high.

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      I mean 3 aleready fell under the legacy of the first 2 to begin with, but that might've had mostly to do with how it not being as easy to access and recap said first 2 (It did debut in countries who didn't get Toy Story before)

    2. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      Toy Story 3's score on Rotten Tomatoes was ruined by one idiot, so I wouldn't look at the movie as being "inferior" for it.

      But Toy Story 4, so it's apparently not as strong as the first three...

  11. 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.

    1. Solly

      Solly

      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. 

  12. 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.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      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.

    2. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      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.

    3. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      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.

    4. Strickerx5

      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

      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

      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!).

    7. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      @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.

  13. 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

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