  1. Looking at getting the Genesis collection on Switch. I almost definitely want it digital but the physical version is on sale for $10 less on Amazon. Cheaper price or convenience? 🤔

  2. Those are some fine beans, pardner.

      Right indeed, son.

      Why were you guys eating bean bag beans again?

  3. I gotta say, as much as it sucks I don't feel all that torn-up about the Spider-Man thing after a week. The fact that Sony isn't planning a reboot and that we're still seeing more Tom Holland and co. helps tremendously. My concern from here on is less "we won't see Spidey in team-up movies anymore" and more "Don't fuck this up again, Sony."

    Although it DOES suck this happened just as a big screen Spidey/Human Torch team-up became feasible. But still.

      honestly i had been planning to start watching the MCU spider-man films and when the news broke that the deal fell through i started to wonder if i was wasting my time. apparently FFH ended on something big that with the MCU/sony split is likely not going to happen now (or at least, not happen in the way they were likely planning it).

      i bit the bullet and did end up watching homecoming a couple of hours ago though (redbox'd it and i've been putting it off for a while). 'twas fun, now i can go see FFH in theaters now.

       

      spoilers for a two-year old movie may be pointless now but eh...

      i honestly loved the whole scene with vulture piecing together that peter parker was spider-man when he was driving him and his daughter to the prom. shades of ramai's spider-man 1 of peter / norman realizing who the other was and that heartbeat soundtrack in the background. felt like it came from another movie.

      and the way the film ended on aunt may literally going "WTF" on finding out peter was spiderman was amazing

      We're still getting more movies in this particular series so I see no reason why they wouldn't follow up on the big thing in FFH. It might not end up going in the same direction Feige had planned though, yeah.

  4. I remember an old-ass Spidey storyline where everyone was gunning after him so hard that Peter invented a few other superhero personas to use until things died down. Given FFH's ending and the current legal situation...psst hey Disney. Wink wink hint hint

      Yeah, have him become Iron Spider or something, sorta Spidey but not.

      Well he has Night Monkey already.

      Depends on legalities.  Unfortunately, it's with Sony that Tom Holland signed a contract on.

  5. I’m enjoying Ultimate Alliance 3 but oof, that camera. Legit one of the worst I’ve seen in years, regardless of what mode you pick.

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      I love it as well. But man when those eneimes corner you and the camera clips. The only way I get out of it is switching heroes

  6. Looking to buy MUA 3 on the eShop. The game itself is $59.99. Expansion pass is $19.99. The bundle that includes both is $79.98, the same price you’d pay by buying both items separately anyways. Maybe I’m missing something here, but isn’t the point of bundles usually to make the price even just a *smidge* cheaper to make it more enticing?

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Sometimes it's for convenience. Instead of having to purchase both separately and confirming everything twice, that gives the whole kit and kaboodle up front. 

  7. I'm really curious to see how well Just Dance 2020 will sell on the Wii. I'm not even kidding.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      There must still be a sizable audience on there, and it makes sense. I'm willing to bet the Wii is the only console some of them have ever owned. But how many people are we talking?

      HOW MANY???

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      All the old ladies will buy it!

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      People who have post-Wii consoles will buy it anyway for the memes. 

       

      Of the persentage that only have Wii, of what percentage of them are even avid Just Dance fans???

  8. Soooo...if Sony ends up putting Tom Holland in Venom 2 or Kraven's Christmas Vacation or whatever other stupid spin-offs they're thinking of; doesn't that mean these movies will officially unofficially be part of the MCU? I mean if they end up keeping the same continuity...

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Legally, no. Story wise, yeah.

      Again, it's really... really stupid. Like, both of them are about to try to continue on, act like the events of the movies happened, yet never actually reference them in any meaningful way.

      Polk's right, no one is winning here. Especially not the consumer (which is why I have no fucking idea why people are actually applauding Sony).

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      It’s because people think this means every new Spidey movie is going to be on the level of Spider-Verse; not realizing that movie was good *despite* Sony’s involvement, not because of it.

      Others seem to also think this opens the door for more Spider-Verse sequels, even though the MCU deal has zilch to do with them.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I guess there's also a group that thinks this helps prevent Disney's monopoly in the industry.

      Which, I mean, a point could be made there. Though, a counter-point could also be made that this only gives Disney more of a reason to seek out Sony.

    4. Speederino

      Speederino

      That and Disney losing a single character’s movie rights is hardly a victory anyways.

  9. Been replaying Red Dead 2. I've heard some say that they think Rockstar's game design is outdated, and I disagree...save for how they handle collectables. Expecting the player to find tons and tons of hidden objects with no in-game ways to uncover their locations (like via a purchasable map or something) is some serious PS2-era shite right there.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      For comparison's sake, take Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. There are tons of flags scattered around the world. If you see one in the distance you can't get to yet, scan it in Eagle Vision and it appears on the map for later. After you collect around half of them, you can buy maps that show you where to find the rest.

      I thought this was *perfect* and that game came out in 2010. Meanwhile, Rockstar still expects you to either stumble on their collectables by sheer luck or (more likely) just use the internet.

    2. Ryannumber1Santa

      Ryannumber1Santa

      GTA V was a fucking nightmare with these.

    3. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Drive to place for 15 minutes, do thing for 5 minutes, drive to finish in 20 minutes.

      Find collectables with no hints to where they are, all hidden in the most obtuse locations.

      yup, both are no fun to me

  10. https://wp.me/p2WgDE-1jqXoF

    I’m not making any more comments until more definitive news is heard, but right now it sounds like Spidey might *not* be gone from the MCU just yet.

    (I’m on mobile and the link looks wonky. If it doesn’t work, Google “Variety Spider-Man” and I bet it’ll be the first hit)

    1. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      yea apparently negotiations are still going on

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      The tweet that led me to this suggested this was just Disney stirring up public backlash to dissuade Sony from pulling out. I don’t know if I fully buy into that yet (it’s pure conjecture, zilch evidence, we don’t know ANYTHING yet, etc) but here’s hoping.

  11. Remember a few weeks ago when everyone was praying FFH would make a billion so Sony wouldn’t pull Spider-Man out of the MCU? Welp, it made a billion. HOW’D THAT WORK OUT, INTERNET???

      I feel like it was always a double edged Thanos blade.

      Sony: If this doesnt make a billion no more spidy in MCU

      Also Sony:  Spidy made a billion we dont need MCU.

      The only losers here were always the fans

  12. Two questions then: 1.) Will the giant cliffhanger at the end of FFH get resolved? 2.) How long before yet another reboot?

    1. Miragnarok

      They'll be a mean spirited jab towards it the next time he's metioned in an MCU film

      Spoiler

      Where they outright confirm he was chased off for good

       

    3. Speederino

      Speederino

      Reading up on it more, it sounds like Sony is intending to keep Holland. So that says to me that we probably will see a FFH sequel, it just won’t have any other MCU characters or references...aaaaaand whatever Feige had planned is going out the window so Sony can take the creative reins.

      That scares me way more than if they had just announced another reboot. Here’s hoping Spider-Verse wasn’t just a fluke.

  13. Has Nickelodeon confirmed any more revivals aside from Rugrats and All That? I'm having fun thinking of which other shows may or may not be likely to get the treatment.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Wild Thorberry's feels really likely to me. It'd be easy to give that a pro-environment spin which has only become more important with time; plus the Nigel memes have helped keep the show in the online public conscious a little.

      Doug is a weird one. I think the show is remembered fondly enough that a revival could work, but that show feels so inherently 90's to me that I don't know if it would translate well to today. Doesn't really matter though, cuz last I checked Disney owned the rights anyways. So...

      The only other (kinda) big one that I think has zero chance is Rocket Power. The RADICAL SKATEBOARD SURFER BRO TUBULAR DUDE shtick was already feeling dated when the show was new, and it's not like I ever hear people talk about it. But who knows?

       

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I'm sure they'll let Doug be happily reunited with his home company.

       

       

       

       

      After Disney's done buying the rest of Nick that is.

      Do any of y'all remember El Tigre? 

  14. I hate using the internet to look up puzzle solutions in games, but every now and then I’m glad I did because the solution ends up being something I never would have noticed/thought of on my own.

  15. So where does Tomb Raider even go from here? Shadow is supposedly the last of the reboot trilogy, but the franchise is too big to just die. Do they start a new set of games set in this universe? Reboot it again? Pull a DMC5 and just go back to the old continuity?

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      To a tomb of course!

      She needs to discover the lost tomb of Nyaralotheph or something!

      How do you know the lost tomb of Nyaralotheph ISN'T in her house?

      Probably another reboot that takes more from the original series.

    7. AlphaRuby

      AlphaRuby

      Dunno.

      It's not like Hitman (another ex-Eidos IP) where after a couple of games, Square gave up, gave the IP back to IO and said bye.

      These ones must be somewhat successful enough to have made a whole trilogy, so I doubt Square will wanna just stop.

    8. LukA8

      LukA8

      Shadow had an ending patched out on day 1 where there was a letter from Natla (TR1's villain) lying on her desk, but who knows if they wanna go there already. Apparently there's still a Croft Manor DLC coming so maybe they'll drop more hints there.

  16. Done with Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Again, I’m surprised the reception was mixed. Gameplay-wise that was definitely my favorite of the trilogy.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      That's what I've heard from a few people. I've still got to play it myself. Storywise, I really don't like whole Trinity stuff in Rise. It's so boring and generic. Not to mention that Lara is a whiny, selfish little bitch in that game. 

    2. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Very poor marketing and the stigma left from Rise became a deadly combination.

    3. LukA8

      LukA8

      The game started off very strong but for me, lost a lot of steam once it got to the hidden city hub, and the half-assed Trinity conclusion didn't help either. It definitely had the most tomb raiding in it, but overall I'd say Rise was stronger.

    4. Speederino

      Speederino

      I’d like to add that Trinity might be the worst set of militia antagonists I’ve ever seen, competence-wise. Despite heavy gear and experience they constantly get their asses beat by grunts with swords and a young woman with zilch combat training. And fucking Stormtroopers make more accurate shots.

    5. LukA8

      LukA8

      It's a shame they were just wasted and ended up Solarii clones. Their connection to the Vatican that was teased in Rise gave me hope for an interesting conclusion, but after Shadow I still have no idea what their deal was : P

  17. Why did Robotnik need to build Robotnikland specifically on the ruins of Station Square? Couldn’t he have just found an empty patch of land? Or a deserted island? Or even just build an island? Or how about a giant Egg Carrier big enough to support it? That would be a pretty big show of might and power right there.

    1. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      Not gonna lie, I've always wondered that myself. Maybe he was being lazy and didn't want to develop the land himself? No matter how you put it, he could have saved himself loads of trouble by just putting the thing somewhere where no one could care. But no, he wouldn't get the idea to do that until Sonic Unleashed. 300 IQ, everyone.

  19. I didn't even realize it was Mania's anniversary, I've been replaying that out of sheer coincidence. I haven't really given it a full playthrough since it was new, and it's still awesome.

  20. Been playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider and tbh I’m kind of surprised that it seemingly got more of a mixed fan reception. I’m a good chunk of the way in and so far I feel like this is the best of the trilogy.

  21. Sheesh, take my car in for a basic oil change and tire rotation and then it turns out I need new air filters and front brakes. This got a lot more expensive than I was planning (especially with brakes being involved) >_>

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Maybe I should try to learn like...basic car maintenance. I’m no mechanic but knowing how to at least change the oil might be nice.

  23. Batman vs. TMNT is a perfect example of how to do fanservice right, and I'd love for other filmmakers to take note. The movie is sprinkled with loads and loads of visual references to the 80's TMNT intro, old movies, and even the Konami games. But it never once feels forced or lingers on something too long. You don't need to know a single damn one of these references to appreciate these moments, they're just fun extras for long-time fans.

  24. Jump on panel number 1. It will take you to panels 2 and 3. Jump as soon as you land on a panel, or else you’ll fall. 

    1. Supah Berry

      ...But wheres panel number 4?

      The first Sonic Adventure disc I had was very damaged on the part that stored the English voice acting. One of the things I remember most is Tikal saying " Jump on panel number 1. It will take you to panels 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2..."...and so fourth until you cleared the stage.  That and the game getting stuck on making Robotnik bop about to his theme music because it could never find his voice lines XD

      @Little T No way! I can't believe this!

  25. I'm surprised Sega hasn't put any Dreamcast games on Switch, particularly Sonic Adventure. We're overdue for a Switch port of a Steam port of a console port of a PC port of a Gamecube port of a Dreamcast game.

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      Sega hasn't bothered to properly port any of their 3D games besides sa2 and it's infuriating.

      Like you literally cannot play Sonic Heroes, Unleashed or Colors in modern hardware and it drives me crazy.
