  1. Yeah, between that and the first little bit on Long Ring Long Land (which is still one of my favourite dumb island ideas) it seemed like the show was on kind of a roll for a while there. What actually happens with Aokiji in the manga? Do they still team up to save those shipwrecked people somehow?
  2. There needed to be something light between Luffy beating up God and everything falling apart at Water 7. It didn't work in the anime because it was stretched out and sandwiched between filler arcs, but I'd be interested to see how it flowed in the manga. I didn't think the actual filler Davy Back stuff was particularly different in quality from the canon material, but two rounds for literally no reason was way too much. Follow that up with the genuinely crappy Ocean's Dream, and... well, I guess it made Water 7 look even better by comparison?
  3. First Class was my favourite X-Men movie, so that's encouraging. Orci's projects are pretty awful a lot of the time, but the source material here ain't exactly Shakespeare and he's not actually writing the script, so we'll see.
  4. If Lucina had been announced a few months ago I think I would've gotten really excited about the whole clone thing, since they could maybe have done Dark Samus the same way. It's still nice that she's an AT, and really that's a much better representation of her actual abilities, but... y'know. Mighta been neat. At least it would've been another villain.
  5. So pretty much like the terrible English versions of some of the game themes? I wonder which part of my brain arbitrarily decided that all-English songs sung by Japanese singers are embarrassing (though for some reason rap is exempt), but songs in Japanese that have tons of English in them are awesome.
  6. I wonder if the fact that this movie's based on old plans means that it's going to be set sometime during the series rather than being a direct sequel to Battle of Gods. Anyway, this is awesome news; I'm really glad that Toriyama seems to be having fun with his creation again after so long. I just hope that maybe the characters who aren't Goku will last longer than a second each against the bad dude this time around.
  7. why is there a netflix original anime and how awful is it

    1. Sixth-Rate Soma
    2. Chili Dawg
    3. Sami


      oh god the animation

    4. KHCast

      I heard it was actually pretty good. It wasn't created by Netflix, they just hold exclusive rights to it in the US.

    6. Wraith


      i heard its not bad actually

  8. "You fool. Don't underestimate the limitless destructive power of giraffes." Man, what a good show.
  9. Meanwhile, Lyn looks on from the sidelines. A single tear rolls down her cheek in 30 fps.

  10. Sakurai will know the pain and suffering he caused the Emperor and Fiora

  11. I don't think there's a character who's needed a remake redesign as badly as Brawly. He's still not the most interesting-looking Gym Leader, but at least now he's got a little texture to him. Having a gym that's an actual gym is kinda neat too.
  12. It's deeply weird that Game & Watch still hasn't technically been confirmed yet.

  13. I like Fire Emblem just fine and this is about as interesting as I can imagine more reps from that series being (and it's nifty that we're in uncharted territory again), but I'd still maybe rather have seen something from an unrepresented series. I think you know which one in particular; it starts with "A" and ends with "Intelligent Systems has worked on more than one franchise, seriously". Still, uncharted territory means who even knows what might be next? I think in the long term this will be much more fun than if we'd just gotten Shulk or whatever. I do think I'll probably play as Robin and Lucina more than Marth and Ike, and definitely more than I ever would have as Chrom.
  14. all these fire emblems and still nobody from advance wars


  16. Can one of Shulk's taunts include that comical oversized sandwich Fiora makes him?

    1. Soniman


      He can impale her with the sandwich

  17. Land of the Livid Dead would be a pretty sweet stage, though.

    1. Red Cap

      Red Cap

      will the deadly grandmas be a stage hazard?

  18. Fun fact: the two games I'm playing right now are Xenoblade Chronicles and Rayman Legends.

    1. KrazyBean


      Haven't played Rayman Legends but I hope you're enjoying Xenoblade Chronicles cause I sure am.

    2. Eitarou


      At the same time?

  19. I've been mildly obsessed with Rayman lately, so this is double cool. I wonder which other third-party characters might be significant enough to get this kind of treatment... (no points awarded for guessing Bayonetta)
  20. Chain Attack for Shulk's final smash so it can be Reyn Time

    1. Nix


      Reyn Time Assist Trophy

  21. I think I was just sold on this whole franchise. 'Scuse me while I scoot on over to Amazon...
  22. But... The Imprisoned is already in the game, and they're the same character. I mean, I can imagine scenarios where they might not want to use his true form out of fear that he might take over the whole storyline since he's the biggest, baddest dude there is, but it'd still be a little strange to have him make a physical appearance, but only in his weaker form. Personally, I'm not especially fond of Demise as a character since he barely even is one, but I really like The Imprisoned's design. He's a little goofy, especially his jiggly toes, but he's just so pleasantly weird and alien. And kind of cute, actually; I wish there was a doll of him.
  23. get ready for shulkamania, smash brotherrrr

  24. ...maybe he was just, y'know, curious? I'm glad that it looks like Shulk's original English VA is coming back. It seemed pretty likely that Shulk would make it in, but I was worried they'd just find some 'murrican to voice him and lose one of Xenoblade's fun quirks. I'm more interested in what stage(s) we might get out of this than I am in Shulk's moveset, though. There are a lot of cool-looking places in that game. Will they go for something "iconic" like Bionis' Leg, or more story-important like Sword Valley, or...?
  25. I've only played a little of Unlimited World Red (for Wii U) so far, but my biggest gripe is definitely how it handles the map. The lack of anything on the GamePad is a little silly, but I'd probably be happy if there was even just a minimap on the main screen or something. I'll probably be mostly okay anyway once I've figured out where things are in town, but man. Also: I've been flopping randomly between Japanese and English as I watch the show, but I've stuck totally with English starting with Water 7 since this is the last chance I'll have to hear that cast until I hit Strong World. A side effect of that is that I hadn't ever heard Franky clearly in Japanese until I started playing Unlimited World Red earlier today, and he's... somethin'. He doesn't sound bad at all, but I can't say I was expecting anything quite like that after getting used to the standard big-guy voice they went for in the dub.
