  1. Anyone else weirded out that Persona's 3-5 contain varying degrees of teacher obsession/lust?

    1. DanJ86


      No. Plus obsession/lust in 3 is a bit of a stretch when it's unknown if the protagonist was aware he was talking to his teacher or even found her attractive.

    2. Penny


      not necessarily weirded out, as that just seems to come with the territory, but it's definitely something I don't think should continue, at least if it involves underage characters

    3. JosepHenry


      It's very gross. Buuut is something the writer thought it was fine when... It really isn't.

      Positively written gay characters? That's wrong and weird.

      Dating your 10 years older than you teacher despite you being 15? That's fine and dandy.

      Ugh. Just use a fucking college setting for once if that's has to be a thing.

    4. Polkadi~☆


      In 3, you can hang out with a character who lusts over one of your teachers.

      Telling him to knock it off reverses your Social Link with him. Yeah, reverses, that was a thing in Persona 3.

    5. JosepHenry


      Do not talk about fucking Kenji

      he is the most punchable character in the history of everything

      I cannot believe I went far with his social link

    6. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      So what about Persona 1 & 2?

    7. Polkadi~☆


      Yeah, I kept telling him to tone it down, or to find someone else, only to find that he hates being told that. Maybe don't bring it up in every single conversation, for starters?

      Hell, most Social Links in 3 have you needing to kiss up to the characters, whether you like them or not, so you can progress.

    8. Perkilator


      Well, that’s tame compared to turning people old by shooting eye lasers.

    9. JosepHenry


      @Polkadi~♪Persona 3 is a good game.

      Persona games are great but when do shit I don't like, they REALLY FUCKING NAIL IT.

      @Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice If I remember correctly in P1 there's a teacher that basically saves a student from a life of delinquency that comes back in P2. Though in P2 Part 1 there is a teacher that's... well crazy would be underselling it given the repercussions. I don't recall any actual lust or anything like that taking place.

      @Polkadi~♪Ugh, I forgot about Kenji.

  2. Normal Boots looses another member, but unlike the previous two its not controversial.


  3. I think Caddicarus just sold me on Team Sonic Racing.

    1. JosepHenry


      If this guy, who says he didn't like Sonic because of his obnoxious personality, and only learned to like Sonic when he went silent in Mania, says that he LOVED this game which Sonic and company talk to each other CONSTANTLY it means it has to be REALLY good.

  4. That last episode of The Twilight Zone was just so unbelievably heavy-handed.

      It's Jordan Peele's in name only. He's only the guide on the show.

  5. Looking like I cant take it easy during summer term. Was really looking forward to getting more gaming and social time in.

  6. Oh cool, Chip Zdarsky liked one of my tweets.

  7. Y'all ever sit down and realize how many terrible prominent Jared's there are? ProJared, Jared from Subway, Jared Kushner, Jared Leto (I mean after the story of sending used butplugs to a castmate).

  8. ....That moment when you realize Darksydephil outlasted Projared, Screwattack, The Best Friends, and possibly PBGamer if he can't run it back hard and fast enough.

    1. Dejimon11


      That's fucking sad. 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      He'll probably outlive us all!



    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      No clue about if it's an attempt to save face, but PBG did comment on it:

      Basically, he said he jumped the gun to defend him, and was lead to believe things were a certain way. Given NormalBoots' statement explicitly states none of the other contributors were aware of Jared's actions, it is possible he legitimately didn't know there was evidence. 

    4. Adamabba


      Im not surprised PBG reacted that way, they were best friends for over a decade. Hes only human.

      Im positive PBG is a good dude, focus the hate on ProJared

    5. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well tbf, DarkSydePhil was a pretty unpleasant person from the get go, so it’s kinda hard for him to really sink any further and it was obvious from the beginning. He was exactly what he showed himself to be. Guys like Jontron, Nostalgia Critic, JewWario, and now apparently ProJared spent years crafting the facade of decency and sanity, so it’s a hell of a lot more shocking when the facade finally breaks.

  9. Real talk, I'm just sitting and waiting until it's proven that Greg was right and Jirard is revealed to be an actual scumbag.

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Are these actual rumors or is this about that Projared deal?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Neither really, it's more because this is the second Normal Boots scandal to come to light and I'm expecting more to come later.

  10. Damn!

    Ain't no more Holly, just a pile of ash in N7 armor.

    1. Teoskaven


      Again, i feel so bad for Ross.

  11. Honestly unfased by the Projared stuff. Not too sure what that says about me.

    1. Teoskaven


      It doesn't help that he did slowed down immensly with his reviews and even last year's D&Dcember was underwhelming, focusing instead on LPs and streams, i was fearing he was becoming like Spoony, but now it's even worse.
      NormalBoots is becoming the new Channel Awesome, and it's beyond depressing if you ask me.

    2. Kittea


      Depends. If you feel this way because finding out people you've followed for a long time are shit is very common now, I get that. However, the danger is that this can unintentionally lead to you not considering these matters to be as serious as they actually are. As long as you haven't reached that point I think you're fine.

  12. Netflix needs to get on Astro City ASAP.

  13. God, Firefox better get this shit sorted out. I'm accustomed to not having to sit through ad's for each video, and I refuse to go back.

    1. Legendary Emerald

      Legendary Emerald

      I switched to Chrome because of it. I'm assuming you are complaining about adblock breaking youtube's drop-down menu features?

    2. Zaysho


      Extensions weren't working briefly when I tried Firefox last night but it seems to be working on my end now.

  14. If you were to redesign modern Sonic what would you change? I'd just cut back the spines a bit and give less detail in his brow.

    1. Wraith


      Nothing wrong with his design imo but I'd play the animation a lot looser. Make everything he does more exaggerated and expressive 

    2. Diogenes


      short of going full classic, hesse's "blended sonic" is pretty damn close to what i'd go for:


      proportions somewhere between classic and modern, slightly oversized shoes and socks, shorter spikes with the couple of loose quills from boom sonic (i might go with slightly thicker ones tho). they're not radical changes but i think they better emphasize some of the most important parts of his design; more prominent feet and spikier spikes.

    3. JosepHenry


      I love his extra spikes, Would add that, and remove his butt brow. 

    4. Marcello


      An improved version of this:


      If Mario can have actual hair, so can Sonic. :U

    5. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      add booty shorts

  15. FFS Netherealm


    Then again it would more than explain how Rousey got on to MK11.

  16. >Sees a Jim Cummings topic

    Huh, whats this all about?


    No.....Noooooo....... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    Please don't let this be real.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Ehh, there's less evidence here than the Vic case. It's only one person, with no actual evidence except word of mouth. I personally don't believe it.

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Topic? Where?

    3. Balding Spider
    4. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Oh dear 😕

  17. *Cringe* Okay, yeah, I see why people are pissed about this.


    I think I'm just going to read the Nightcrawler Age of X-man and nothing else X-men related until Hickman rights this ship.

  18. People getting upset over P5R, and I'm just sitting here wondering why the hell they buy the first copy when they know Atlus always pulls this stuff.

    1. KHCast


      What’s the latest controversy now? I mean I’m probably just gonna watch a playthrough of it if shit like the gay characters are still there, and just buy P5S.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Not really a controversy just came across a few people upset by the announcement of Royal and I'm just stunned how they didn't see it coming.

    3. KHCast
    4. Kuzu


      You deserve death for that pun

    5. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Sounds like a royal pain.

    6. KHCast


      I need to scramble my thoughts back together after that bad joke

    7. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Well, I thought it was clever.

  19. Not upset over the trailer because it's pretty much what you would expect when movies drag a cartoon character into real world settings to save money.

    What the hell were you all expecting?

    1. Diogenes


      not a horrible little gremlin

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Diogenes Really? Even with Hollywood's track record with these kinds of movies?

    3. Diogenes


      no. not one this horrible at least

    4. JezMM


      To be honest it was exactly was I was expecting, which is the biggest disappointment of all.

    5. Kuzu


      Absolutely nothing whatsoever.

  20. I'm like 14 episodes into Dororo. I'm really enjoying this.

  21. I just realized something!

    Endgame Spoilers:


    They totally made The Hulk into The Thing. Especially with that reintroduction.


    1. Scott



      They didn't. They made him into Professor Hulk. Google it!


    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider



      No, obviously they made him Doc Green. What I mean is that scene with him in a local resturant and the kids was such a Ben Grimm moment. A monster that became an idol.


    3. dbzfan7



      Ben wouldn't dab dammit. He's got some class at least XP


  22. Endgame Spoilers: Rom the Space knight killed Thanos in his Thanos chopper.

    There, I save you 3 hours.

  23. ...Is anyone excited for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake? Feels like the hype disappeared sometime ago.

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Look at Kingdom Hearts 3. We waited years for it. It came. While good,  it wasn't the amazing experience we'd been hoping for.

      Now, fans have been waiting for the VII remake for just as long, if not longer in whatever sense. And this is without games like Kingdom Hearts at least had to tide the wait over.

      With how little of the remake we've heard of or seen, I don't think fans are all too eager to put their hypes' necks out on the line again just yet.

      Square are not really all that good at this maintaining the hype and living up to it game.

    2. Dejimon11


      I'm more interested in that than Death Stranding.

    3. Adamabba


      Im cautiously optimistic. it could still totally just be another KH3 situation, but some of the details I've read about it sound pretty good to me

    4. Ferno


      hard to be hyped for something that won't be released until 3002

  24. Oh shoot, the new season of She-Ra is out!

  25. Back from Endgame, and boy did it blow


    my expectations away


    1. TheOcelot



      The best part was the end-credits scene ;) 


    2. PublicEnemy1



      You got me there 😄
