  1. I hope I can get the hang of this language one day. It's a tough one to learn.

      I can get that part down no problem, that one's easy.

      But when I try to say anything else in French Accented Penguinese, all I do is sound Welsh. =(

      Too complicated for me. French is challenging enough on its own for me ;) 

      @sansy I see what you did there and I like it. I'm very tempted to start saying "biblinootque" instead of bibliothèque :P 

    7. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      It took me longer than it should have to spot the joke in blblinootque.

      So I guess I was all like:

  2. So Luigi's had a spinoff... Peach has had a spinoff... Toad... Wario... Yoshi... Donkey Kong... they've all had spinoffs... That leaves the most important one of all. You'd think they would have made one for him sooner, given how popular he is.

    I hope they're taking their time with Big Bob-Omb's Banging Birthday Bash.

      I don't have high hopes for that game, unfortunately. 

      It looks like it's gonna bomb.

      Eh, I found their dynamic pretty forced.

      It did sound like a bit of mindless Bibble at times. I heard they were a bunch of Sleazebagganos off-stage as well.

  4. Something's not right here, but I can't put my finger on what it is.

      I should've left it like that for the rest of the day. Hell, that's what I should have done in the first place, without the name change. Alas...

      Maybe this is an April Fools joke

    5. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      Maybe the joke itself went through a 502 Bad Gateway.

      Which is why it started in March.

    I think I've been spending too much time with Mario 64 parallel universes on the brain. I laughed at this way more than I should have.

    1. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      Seriously, I'm so glad this phenomenon exists. It's not often you feel smarter when you know more about something memetic. And it makes me love Mario 64 even more, so it's a win on all sides.

  7. So when Mephiles rejoins with Iblis and becomes Solaris again, and he's doing his thing... is Robotnik still tumbling down cartoonishly from the sky during that time?

    1. Treacher
    2. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      Okay, good stuff. Now I can continue imagining that Robotnik was still falling with style when he got caught in the white flash.

  8. Two months late on this, but I've only just recently been learning about the Mario 64 "parallel universe" thing. I find it every bit as fascinating as it is funny.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Yes, but are you QPU aligned?

    2. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      As long as Mario's de facto speed is involved.

    3. Tara

      Tara

      An A, press is an A. press you can't just 1/2 A. Press.

    4. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      That's where you're wrong, "Tara".

    5. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Parellel universe?

    6. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      @Dejimon: Someone was doing a TAS of Mario 64, with one self-imposed challenge on the player's part being that they had to collect all the stars in the game whilst touching the A button as little as possible. Cut to one mission in Hazy Maze Cave, and... well, maybe you ought to see for yourself. (Just a warning though that it's a pretty lengthy video.)

  9. So I've been thinking, if - very big if - Crash ever comes back with a new game, whether this year or in the future, which characters will appear in the game? Obviously there'll be Crash, Cortex, Coco and so on, but who else? Ripper Roo? Dingodile?

    I have a hard time imagining Tiny wouldn't turn up, considering he's always been one of the most recurring characters in the series.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      DEY'LL PROBABLY DO DAT 1 DING WHERE DEY INTRODUCE A NU VILLAIN AND HAV IT BEING HIJACKED BY CORTEX BUT OTHAHWISE CROW DOESNT C ANY OF DA CHARACTERS BEING CUT

      ON DA TOP TOPIC OF CRASH THO CRUNCH REMINDS CROW OF KNUCKLES, WHICH IS FUNNY CAUSE OF HIS NEW BUFF LOOK IN BOOM

    2. Colada

      Colada

      it would only be the original characters in an attempt to start with a clean slate and profit off the nostalgia-value (which is the only reason it would be made)

    3. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      Well seeing how we haven't been to the Crash universe in years, I'd be fine with Cortex pulling a Ganon.

      Although to be frank, as long as Tiny, Dingodile, Pinstripe and the rest are there, or at least enough of them are in, I'm happy.

    4. MightyRay

      MightyRay

      No Coco, no sale.

    5. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      @Colada: If that happened, it wouldn't even get off the ground. Whoever it would be that would be making a new Crash game would know full well that the Crash fanbase didn't waiting for years for a brand new cast entirely.

      *didn't wait, bah.

    6. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      I'd want Coco, Cortex, Crunch, Aku Aku, Uka Uka.... pretty much everyone.

      And for pete's sake: ditch the Titans redesigns!

    7. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      @Forte-Metallix: The thing that gets me about Titans' Tiny is that we're supposed to think that's Tiny. If it were a completely different character, I don't think that example would have been as bad.

      Incidentally, this is also how I feel about Metal Overlord, in the sense that I'm fine with robot dragons, just not robot dragons that are also Metal Sonic.

    8. CrashRatchetFan

      CrashRatchetFan

      Bit late on this but I'll give you my thoughts.

      Crash has been out of the picture long enough for a full-blown reboot to not be shocking to anyone. It's not like the story was ever integral to the experience. I would go with a reboot if only because the continuity has become really messed up. As long as the characters we love are there, that's all that really matters.

      Seemingly. I've been looking at the concept art and animation of "Crash Landed". God the game looked amazing aesthetically. I almost hope the new game looks closer to that then to the Naughty Dog games, but I know that's a pipe dream, since they'll go for the nostalgia tokens. Not that I'm complaining, it's been a long, difficult eight years for Crash fans.

  10. "This was the best idea I ever had," cackled Eggman as he pitched his Sonic cartoon to Dingo Pictures.

    1. Smoke

      Smoke

      no if eggman made a sonic cartoon he would make sonic look bad!!!! i don't like that :(

    2. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      @Smoke

      ...Yes, that-...

      that's the joke.

    3. Smoke

      Smoke

      @Forte-Metallix i know but it's not a good joke because it makes sonic look bade!!! why would you want sonic to look bad?? you call yourself a sonic fan you're not even a TRUE SONIC FAN!!!!!

    4. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      Oh boy we've got one of these, do we?

  11. Say what you will about Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, but I think it had some pretty cool level concepts, particularly Thieves' Den and Jurassic Jungle.

  12. "Now Black Doom is the key to all this... if we get Black Doom working. Cause he's a funnier character than we've ever had in the games."

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Now I'm just imagining Black Doom intentionally being the comic relief...

    2. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      It's so dense.

    3. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Dense Doom.

      Again, it's like poetry, it's sort of - they rhyme. Every stanza kinda rhymes with the last one. Hopefully it'll work.

  13. Are you having notification issues?

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      Maybe? I'm sorry. I got a lot going on. Let me check my messages.

    2. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      No rush. Just felt I ought to ask.

    3. Kiah

      Kiah

      No that was good as I was actually checking on the status updates so that was good timing on your part :) 

  14. I wonder how many kids the Sonic OVA inspired to hurt themselves by suggesting that they scrape their knuckles and catch some tails.

  15. Criteria for Eddie Lebron's "Crash":

    -Crash has hyper-realistic textures for his fur and extra-long spikes for his mohawk.
    -Aku Aku looks plastic.
    -Crash isn't concerned about Coco being killed offscreen by Cortex.
    -Cortex and Brio/N.Gin are both played by a poor man's Bryan Cranston.
    -Tiny looks like the classic version but has the Titan version's legs.
    -Ripper Roo is an actual metaphor for dementia.
    -Dingodile's flamethrower shoots out transparent special effects.
    -Caddicarus makes a cameo against his will.
    -An offhand joke made regarding the Titans games ends up backfiring and makes the film look hypocritical.
    -Crash and Cortex never actually confront each other.
    -Only two types of Lab Assistants could be made with the remaining budget.
    -Crash spins out of the film frame twice.
    -Crunch shows up at the end with both arms completely normal.

      Don't forget the singer for the Spyro movie he's going to make next.

      And there's a scene with Cortex holding a clearly-fake Crystal and making creepy sounds and facial expressions.

      TheOcelot

      That's from 3d: Enter the Gecko? The final boss sequence when Rez gets really big was kind of scary and kind of awesome!

    3. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      @Quiet: Correct. Enter the Gecko and Deep Cover Gecko were both just two of many childhood games of mine. Probably for the best that most of the jokes flew over my head at the time.

  17. Dear My Friend, Albert Wily,

    It's A New Day, and A New Venture. Can You Feel the Sunshine over there? With The White of Sky over here, there's too much of a Vela-Nova for me to be sure. There's practically No Way Through telling. Anyhow, you know well about My Dreams of an Absolution, but I never did tell you about how My Destiny came to be. So here's How It Started.

    Gerald tried his admirable best when Raisin' Me Up, but when he said "My beloved grandson, You Can Do Anything" on that fateful day, he should have known better than to give me any ideas. Creating was always admittedly My Sweet Passion, but this helped me realise that I was destined for great things. I still remember when I first made my trusty Egg Mobile. (I called her Bomber Barbara back then.) It was a joy to Fly in the Freedom for the very first time. But as the days went by, and I grew older, I came face to face with... him.

    The hedgehog was a curious specimen... some sort of Sonic Speed Rider... a Knight of the Wind, you might say, like The Chosen One or something. Much as I tried to Fight the Knight, he always won, particularly with that Sonic Boom ability of his. No matter how many plans I made Back 2 Back, there he was, doing some more Metal Scratchin'. And with each defeat, came such humiliation. "Catch Me If You Can!", he would say. I decided to Let the Speed Mend It, to see if he would be all High and Broken by the time he fought With Me. Alas, he still kept winning, even with a mere Seven Rings in Hand. And every time, whenever I was able to prevent myself from being catapulted away like a Diamond in the Sky, there Amy Rose would be, squealing "You're My Hero!" to that accursed Ethno Circus freak and his fellow band of Sonic Heroes. Sometimes Sonic would even do his little Ska Cha Cha to further taunt me with. Just thinking of it makes me want to Kick the Rock.

    Why did they keep denying my rule? Surely they had considered the Endless Possibilities? But then, Sonic always was going on about how to Open Your Heart and Speak With Your Heart, like the Unawakening Float that he is. I thought about Living in the City in order to get away from it all, but the Deeper I thought about the Wicked Wild, it wasn't long until I felt the desire to Escape From the City, as The Palace That Was Found was simply too Sweet Sweet Sweet for me to resist. Had I stopped, I would just be living Lazy Days... Livin' in Paradise, you know? Yes, I may want to Live Life, but I also want to Reach For the Stars, so after considering both choices, I ultimately decided to Throw It All Away, all in the name of knocking down that hedgehog for good.

    So I continued. I created Metal Sonic, and I said to This Machine, "You. You're My Number One. Sonic may Follow Me, but together, we'll go Super Sonic Racing, gut him with a Poison Spear, and make His World our own." Sadly, we did not, but gradually, my plans grew larger, and so did the range of outside sources. Chaos was always my personal favourite. As I began to Dive Into the Mellow, it felt like I was going Back in Time, to the dawn of the Space Trip Steps.

    Things changed when Shadow entered the scene. The hedgehog Wrapped in Black stood up to me, and he said "Right then my good man, let's Get Edgy." Things went downhill after that. Naturally everyone else assumed he had died on that day, but not me. I knew Through the Fire that he was only Almost Dead.

    I was even more outraged when Metal was no longer Supporting Me, hardly the news I wanted to hear when I was just Waking Up, and it angered me to think of how long he kept it Unknown From Me. Team Chaotix... proved to be a bunch of Jeh Jeh Rockets, to put it lightly, but fortunately, Metal and I were able to Work It Out (by which I mean I threatened to Un-Gravitify him should he go Blue on the Run again). Then when Shadow went crazy again, he disagreed with my words. He said he wanted the people to All Hail Shadow instead, such slanderous beliefs I considered to belong only in A Ghost's Pumpkin Soup.

    And so, It Has Come to This. I admit to making mistakes in the past, but what can I say, we all Live and Learn. In the end, I Am... well, All of Me, of course. Some may say my chances of victory in the end are a Cosmic Eternity away, as only a Sweet Dream can be, but I will Never Turn Back against my goals. It Doesn't Matter how many times the hedgehog wins, I must continue to Believe in Myself and my strengths if I want him to see just What I'm Made Of.

    Anyway, I'm rambling on now, so I better stop Right There and Ride On away. Maybe you've gathered something from this, maybe you haven't, but What U Need to do is consider the similarities you share with me in regards to that super fighting robot opponent of yours. Maybe then We Can unite properly. Only time will tell.

      For elaboration, when I loaded it up initially, it was only showing the first line and nothing else, and it kept doing that, hence why I thought that I "broke" something as it were, to which I was cringing very much.

      Either way, if I do something as ridiculous as this in the future, I think I'll just cut it into comment-linked sections. X)

    "So this means..."

    "Someone Russian is going to slip on a banana and break their neck!"

    "Precisely, Robin!"

    The only thing more amazing than Batman and Robin's sage conclusion-making abilities was that they was actually always right about this shit.

      This is actually one of the ways Robotnik makes his money. He sets up his companies, he sells outdated robots, he harvests the resources within rich mountains and caverns, and he does this. No wonder Robotnik never has to worry about going broke, meanwhile Wily is lucky enough to sell a joint to get by.

  20. "Son, for fuck sake," Black Doom roared angrily. "You're letting the family down. You never listen to me. I try to bond with you like a good father, and you just blow me off and disrespect me. What happened to you? Years ago, you were firing the Eclipse Cannon, destroying Prison Island, making the humans suffer... I was proud of the old you! But now... you're a different creature! You're the opposite of what we stand for! Your newfound kindness cost you your memories, and almost cost you your life! What do you see in this pathetic world? Why did you change!?"

    His back facing the Black Arm leader, Shadow turned his head to the right, not changing his expression. "I suppose you could say I..." Pausing for a brief moment, he turned his head back to the front, with a little smirk, and a nice new pair of sunglasses.

    "...Lived and learned."

    *DAAAAAAAAMMMMNN*

    1. Ryannumber1Santa

      Ryannumber1Santa

      *Black Doom thought for a second* "I suppose you could say you opened your heart, and let in the endless possibilities, and reached for the stars. Like the Knight of the Wind, you won't stop fighting me, and with seven rings in hand, you'll come and try to stop me. You believe if you defeat me, the people will chant All Hail Shadow"

      Shadow won because he believed in himself, and therefore could do anything.

      Shadow smirked and replied, "Perhaps, but in the end, It Doesn't MatterWe Can go on our separate paths, but I Am destined to prevail. You should have known better that to invade His World. Follow Me, and I'll show you My Sweet Passion for conquest.

      But I gotta go, for now. I'm meeting Team Chaotix for a mission. After that, I'll be Free, and we're having a lot of Lazy Days- Livin' in Paradise.

      why hasn't someone hired you as a writer yet this is gold

  21. I'll never forget the time when I reached the third boss in Crash Bash for the first time, wondering why the Komodo Bros. of all characters were pulling a N. Gin.

  22. I think I asked this once before, but I thought I would ask again for fun. For any Crash Bandicoot fans on here, if you were making your own Crash game in the style of the famous Warp Room setup, complete with five bosses (and maybe an optional/extra boss), and the last boss would be Cortex as usual, which other characters would you choose to fill the other boss slots?

    It's a hard choice for me since I love a lot of Crash characters, but as long as Dingodile was one of them, I would probably be satisfied either way. Although I would also consider making Rilla Roo an optional boss just to see the look on people's faces, even moreso when it turns out he's really hard to beat.

    1. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      Dingodile, Tiny Tiger, Ripper Roo, and N. Gin would be the obvious picks.

      N. Tropy's pretty good, too.

    2. Dr. Crusher

      Dr. Crusher

      Yeah, if the joke idea with a hard Rilla Roo fight couldn't work for whatever reason, I'd probably make N. Tropy the extra boss as well.

    3. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      You know who'd make for a hilarious, out-of-nowhere secret boss?

      Fake Crash!

    Looks like Wily's more of a Slash man.

      Get it, cause, like, slash man. Slash Man.

      Oh the shame, my plans have failed once more.

       

  24. I know it's not widely disliked or anything anyway, but Mario Land 2 is actually one of my top favourites out of all the 2D Marios, in part due to it being very atypical for 2D Mario standards.

      I've heard Mario Land 1 & 2 are very simple games to play is that true?

      Honestly, it's still one of my favorite Mario games. I still remember Mario Zone and Space Zone as my most loved courses there, too.

      I love both Land games for being so unique in terms of aesthetics. You got levels based on China, submarine and plane shoot-em-ups, outer space years before Mario Galaxy, and even a giant mechanical Mario to explore!

      My main criticism towards the New Super Mario Bros. series is the utter lack of creativity in level motifs. All four games use the exact same eight tropes!

      @TheUltimateSilverFanBoy: As in, gameplay-wise? Yeah, they are. Mario Land 1 is a very short game, and Mario Land 2's overall map system works slightly differently than usual, but otherwise, it's all standard 2D Mario fare.

      @Komodin: I've always loved the concept of the Mario Zone, and the Space Zone is great as well. But I also really like how the Pumpkin Zone goes for an abandoned school (I think?) instead of the usual mansion setup.
