  1. Ugh, I had a very real nightmare this morning, and I'm feeling very anxious right now.

    1. Failinhearts


      Aw, that sucks, dude.

      I hope you can get over it. I know how bad they can get.

    2. -dan-


      I've never really put much stock in the meanings of dreams and nightmares. Try not to let it bother you. What you would've seen, wasn't real and what isn't real, can't hurt you.

      I make that sound easy, but I understand that the human mind is a complex one. I'd suggest finding something to help take your mind off it.

      Sometimes dreams and nightmares are based on things that have already happened. It’s not all fantasy. It’s frustrating and even terrifying to have a recollection of something that has caused us deep distress or even traumatized us even if it’s in the past. 

      And those things can have you waking up in a terrible mood full of anxiety and even tears. That can really put a damper on one’s entire day with the lingering anxiety.

      Sorry that happened but try to keep your mind off of things. Hope you’re feeling better soon.

  2. My new playstation 4 is arriving tomorrow.

    It comes with Spider-Man, which I've been dying to play for some time, but does anyone have any more recommendations?

    1. Speederino


      God of War is excellent; and although I only played a little bit of Horizon: Zero Dawn that seems like a keeper too.

    2. Maxtiis


      I don't know what you're open to but Monster Hunter World, Bloodborne, and Dark Souls 3 are all popular picks on ps4. Persona 5 is good I hear. Red Dead 2 is good, and Resident Evil 2 remake is coming on the 25th.

    3. pppp


      Gravity Rush duology, Shadow of the Colossus, The Uncharted series, Ratchet and Clank, Persona 5, The Yakuza series, Until Dawn.

    4. Maxtiis


      I should have mentioned Yakuza.

      Ok, I can make up for it. Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise is Yakuza in a Fist of the North Star skin.


    5. Nix


      NieR: Automata is a must.

  3. I gotta go to work tomorrow and since I'm an old man who can't focus if I stay up late and wake up early, I gotta head to bed. 

    Oh well. 2018 kinda sucked for me, lots of stress, worry and anxiety. But I'm glad it's over, and here's to hoping 2019 year is a better year for me.

     Whether it's already happened or you're waiting for it to happen, Happy New Year!

    1. Kiah


      Turn 30 first and then we can talk about being old lol. 

      I’m about a half hour away from welcoming 2019 and I hope it’s a much better year for you.

      I empathize with the whole stress, worry and anxiety thing so I hope that significantly diminishes for you on all accounts.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Lord & Miller, 2018)

    When it was first announced (Or leaked I believe?) Lord/Miller were going to helm an animated spider-man movie, I had no idea what to think... On one hand an animated spider-man movie? Heck yeah, sign me up! On the other, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are involved? Hmmmm. The two directors love what they do, and you can definately see it in their works... but their movies rely a lot on meta humor, and to me it sometimes gets a little old. So needless to say, even after seeing the trailer, I was unsure how to feel about it. However, after hearing the reviews and the praise, I decided to have a look see and see if it was worth the hype. My thoughts on it? Even though not a lot of people aren't worried about these two things but I still feel the need to say this... If you're not willing to see this movie on the movie just because it's animated, or because of the comedy, then you're doing yourself a huge disfavor. Unlike the recent Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon the film's comedy is pretty spot on, not distracting or mood ruining. Sure there's a couple references to Spider-Man memes here and there, but they're put in a tasteful way, and don't feel forced. And even then the comedy and the serious moments are perfectly balanced. As for the animation... Oh my god, this is some gorgeous stuff. In a way, it almost resembles stop animation, but a lot faster paced. This movie wanted to have a comic book feel, and the animators greatly succeded in what they wanted, from the coloring, to the comic panel transitions (Which the 2003 Hulk film tried to do, but came across as cheesy in that movie), to even having text boxes and thought bubbles in certain scenes. Not to mention, I would forget two characters, Peni Parker and Spider-ham were animated in the same cg style, when in some scenes they looked traditionally animated. I thought the story was a lot of fun, I've always had a soft spot for anything involving spideys from different dimensions, and seeing this story on the big screen was a delight. I loved the characters, and it was great to see Miles Morales have time in the spotlight. Hell, I know they didn't have much screentime, but I still really loved Spider-ham, Peni Parker and Spider-man Noir. I could go on and on and on, about why I loved this movie, but I think others in this thread said everything better than I ever could. I'll just leave it off by saying this: If you love Spider-Man, Animated movies, Superheros, or the works of Lord/Miller, then I can guarentee you'll get a lot of enjoyment from this film.

    Christmas 2018! (General Discussion/Christmas Haul)

    As mentioned earlier, I had to work this christmas, and since I haven't been celebrating christmas for very long to due the beliefs of the religion we used t obe in, this was the first christmas I had to work... So needless to say, I kinda took it harder than most others. It wasn't all bad though. Seeing as how it was christmas, the resort wasn't as busy... Understandably, not many people want to leave a theme park and resort on christmas day. In addition, they were serving some turkey, ham and mashed potatoes in the cafeteria along with some free velvet cake. Although there can be times where they can overwork you, I do enjoy working at a Disney resort. Anyways, after an uneventful day, I came back home and had dinner with my family, and had some more turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and pasteles. It ended up being a pretty good day overall. I got my presents before work as well. What I got was: -SNES Mini -Bendy and the Ink Machine vinyl figure -N64 usb controller -A box of various Mario goodies. All in all, I had a nice christmas.

    Christmas 2018! (General Discussion/Christmas Haul)

    Sadly, for the first time, I'll be working on Christmas day. When you're working at a resort for Disney, you're lucky if you can even get the day off before everyone else during holidays. That said, I'll be opening my presents before work with the rest of my family, and then have a big dinner after work... not to mention my job is not a bad one, so it's not all dreariness on christmas. Looking forward to whatever I have and how my family reacts to the stuff I got them.
  7. After letting it sit in, I gotta say, I realized I really loved Spider-Verse a lot more than I thought I did. 

    And seeing as how I already left the theater feeling satisfied, that's quite something.

    It was like the nostalgiac feeling I got when I first played Kingdom Hearts and realizing how much I loved disney... Only this movie made me remember how much I loved Spider-Man as a kid.

    1. Failinhearts


      Yeah. Just thinking and looking back, the movie just gets better.

  8. Back from seeing "Spider-Verse." I've said my thoughts on Lord/Miller and my thoughts on their movies... So with that said, my final thoughts on it?


    That was a pretty goddamn good movie, I got to say. I just got back from the movie, so I'm still kind of processing it, but man what a film! 

    1. Failinhearts


      Yup! It's really something special.

  9. Alright, time to see this Spider-verse movie everyone's talking about.

    Seriously though, I'm in the theater now, looking forward to it.

    1. Failinhearts


      Have fun, dude! You'll love it!

  10. Alright, time to see this Spider-verse movie everyone's talking about.

    Seriously though, I'm in the theater now, looking forward to it.

  11. Art topic update with a concept and summary for a comic story that's been flying through my mind these past few weeks! Check it out!

    ARTWORK: Robrainiac's topic of mostly OC art, with a some Fanart

    Another day another picture. Back in high-school I made a comic with my friend called "gamecops." It starred Kirby and other Nintendo/Close to Nintendo characters livig in a world where the Console Wars is a cold war between nations. The heroes of this story fend off villains, spies, and creatures called glitches. There have been times where I wanted to revive the idea with original characters, I could never come up with ideas... That is until now. These characters are known as the Overworlders. This story takes a more "Wreck-It ralph" approach, with game hopping between consoles and computers, but still has the "Console War" themes the original had. Leading the Group is Roombie, a small, optimistic, and naive purple creature with the power of mimicry. You can kinda tell this little purple blob's based off of Kirby. Green Booster, is a Megaman-like character with missile-like fists and feet. While excitable, he worries about what others think of him, especially superiors. Inspector Sizzloink, a "collect-em-all" type monster who was once an icon of the genre... while still popular, Sizzloink is in constant fear of falling into obscurity. Tenyew, a former grim reaper, turned baker and mayor of a town consisting of monsters and undead... think Animal Crossing but with cute yet creepy monsters. Despite her stoic nature, she'll do anything to protect her friends and town. Yuu, while having some inspiration from Link, is based off silent protagonists of games, only talking when they need to. Yuu, may be silent most of the time, but her body language and expressions often say what she needs to say. Despite her serious appearance, Yuu loves cute things and is very postive... Just don't hurt her friends, or else you will regret it. The group all live in the console "OverSystem Infinity," ruled by a happy go-lucky mechanic by the name of Mac McGinnis. Overall, happiness and optimism are the words that best describe the "Overworld..." However, one fateful day, an unloved virtual pet named Pand discovers a way to become all powerful, and begins to steal game data and power ups. All the while Booster meets a strange creature named Roombie, who doesn't remember which "world" (AKA Game) he is from, but knows he wants to help. Eventually, the duo begin to meet other heroes from other worlds and they team up to fight off invaders and villains like Pand.
  13. So is it safe to say Disney's live action remakes the pretty much their DTV sequels of the 2010s now? 

  14. Looks like my dad's interested in seeing Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse. Hopefully our schedules will clear on our days off so we can go see it!

    1. Failinhearts


      Definitely find some time to do so! It's worth it!

  15. So, does anyone else who makes stories, comics or anything of the sort ever get a ton of ideas, but never can figure out how to put it on paper?

    Cause I sure do. I just got the idea for yet another comic and story, and I'm struggling to figure out how to get started or how to tell the story.  >_< Yeesh... So many ideas for worlds and characters, so little ideas for how to get them off the drawing board.

    1. Failinhearts


      I know that feeling. Guess I just kinda lack the talent for drawing.

      Which is why I write, I guess.

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Kinda. I usually just plop them down somewhere and try to muddle things out as I go.

    3. -dan-


      Pretty much.

      If it helps, they are guides for stuff like page layout and story boarding that might help get those creative gears moving. To play it safe, you should write down your ideas, too.

    4. Kiah


      What helped me is getting it on paper. Even if it’s a jumbled mess. At least it’s out of my head at that point and there’s something about it being literally visible as opposed to being solely in my mind that helped me to actually make some progress as far as my stories went.

    5. Sonic Fan J

      I definitely know the feeling and understand how crippling it can be. I can be listening to a song and then an idea for a story or picture pops into my head but I can neither get myself to draw or write. it's absolutely aggravating.

      At least in my case though I know the problem is usually having too much of the idea in my head at once not being able to settle and focus on one point to work from. I could seriously use an editor for all of the ideas that pop into my head.

    6. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Definitely have this feeling and its anything creative. It also doesn't help that can't draw or write very well due to a bad hand means that it is stuck in my head until it passes or doesn't pass in a few cases and anything to do with game development is literally trying to understand an alien language and you have no translator.

      I had a idea for so long for at least over 10 years that Freedom Planet and Sonic Mania ended up coming out and a game idea as far back as the blooming Dreamcast era that probably was modern at the time became retro. Turns out that the idea was a mixture of Shenmue, Operation Winback and Headhunter before those games existed.
