  1. Oh, well The Punisher and Jessica Jones are officially cancelled.

    Act surprised.

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      The MCU stretched itself too thin?

    2. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Oh my..... I cant even accept it.....


      Real talk though what happened to Cloak and Dagger?

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @SenEDDtor Missile Nah it was basically Netflix not wanting to promote a series from a company with their own soon to be streaming service.

      @Tails spin It's still set for season two.

  2. With all this Catherine news, somebody reminded me of P3's "Operation Babe Hunt"

    ...Lord forgive me I forgot they used a trans person as a joke in there.

    1. JosepHenry


      Mhm. Persona 4 with the whole Kanji thing and Yosuke being a (closeted) homophobe THAT WAS GOING TO GET REDEEMED CUZ HE WAS A ROMANCE OPTION FOR YU BUT IT WAS CUT I WILL NEVER NOT BE PISSED ABOUT THAT, and Persona 5 gay stereotypes that prey on Ryuji as a joke. In 2017. Fun.


      Persona 2 had Tatsuya and Jun, back in 1999. Since Hashino came in in Persona 3 all lgbt "reps" are negative.

      Imagine if it was still the same writers from 2.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @JosepHenry P2 had that option but I was told there was a small scene where Micheal gets weirded out at some guy considering buying womens clothes. Granted I'm told that was in the PSP remake, and I'm unsure if its in the original game.




    3. JosepHenry


      Oh god... Never mind, that was awful. Ugh. For 1999 was still impressive but I won't defend it any longer. 

    4. Polkadi~☆


      You know what makes the Persona 5 interaction stranger?

      The anime adaptation tones it down as much as it possibly can, as if the director of that series is aware of the homophobia it presents. A retelling of the game tried to remove the homophobia, which is pretty telling of the original scene.

  3. > See's Catherine trending on Twitter

    > Clicks on the hashtag

    Oh... Oooooh, that's dirty Atlus.

  4. I need to lay off the JOJO guys. I just woke up from a dream about me having a stand.

    1. RedFox99


      What was its name?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I don't really remember but I recall it having "Devil" in it's name.

      Edit: Actually I think it was The Devil is a lie.

    3. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      That's actually the best dream anyone could have

    4. tailsBOOM!


      @Balding Spider Are you a JoJo's reference?

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Nah, my name's taken from a comic book character called Spider Jerusalem.

      @Crow the BOOLET Dude, my stand looked like a black and white humanoid Ram with golden horns and wool that looked like clouds that I removed at will to keepmyself warm. That dream was nuts.

    6. tailsBOOM!


      @Balding Spider I figured that.  I was just joking because you said you had a stand

    7. TCB


      All right where's me stand arrow 

  5. Jesus. That final lead up in Kingdom Hearts 3 was lifting hard from JOJO Part 6:

    Spoilers obviously



    Even the name from the final world is shared in JOJO:



  6. Looked away from Jump force since the announcement, but what the hell happened to that game? It looks so unfinished.

    1. Dejimon11


      It's your typical licensed shovel ware. 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      But, like, how you gonna tease something like this at a E3, and deliver this?



    3. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz


      Well... no one series can take the fall for a train-wreck in this case... might as well make a quick buck


    4. Dejimon11


      Welcome to the E3 effect. 

  7. Courtesy of the Vic Mignogna allegations I discovered Shield Hero... Wow this is some power fantasy sexist bullshit. And what the hell is with japan and glamorizing slavery?

    1. DanJ86


      I've always wondered if Japan has the same slavery history that most western countries have.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Yeah me too, as I hear it the glamorizing of slavery is a constant trope in these isekai stories. Shit wasn't bad enough with underage girls being sexualized, and incest, now this.

    3. Polkadi~☆


      Isekai stories are essentially author fantasies. And nearly all of them start as light novels, because writing these fantasies are the best way for authors to put those fantasies down somewhere. Maybe a manga artist will pick it up, and it gets a lot of traction soon after.

      It's why the genre gets so much flak, with parodies and satire being made in spite of it.

    4. Kuzu


      Its very....ugh

  8. One day I will defeat Birkin without getting rocked.

  9. Alright it's time to start Leon's campaign.

  10. (Finally) Beat Claire's story on RE:2. Man, I just gotta say, Birkin was some awesome creature design.

    1. Dejimon11


      Resident Evil is a series I would like to play but man I'm scared as hell.

    2. KHCast


      Oh don’t worry, 4(to an extent), 5, and 6 are far from scary games. Well, no outlast type scary at least. all the others vary since the older games were quite campy 

    3. Dejimon11


      4 is the one I'm interested in trying the most. But Remake 2 just looks absolutely terrifying man. I don't watch horror films for a reason lol.

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Dejimon11 If you have a friend availible you should look into the Resident Evil revelation spin-offs.

    5. Maxtiis


      @Dejimon11 To be honest the originals are so campy these days I don't think you would have a problem. Start with the original Resident Evil 2, towards the end of the game you have so much ammo only bosses can pose any threat. My personal favorite is the original remake, but 4 is definitely right next to it.

  11. So I'm watching TFS stream of Kingdom Hearts III, but... something feels off with the bosses.

    1. Wraith


      the off part is that they aren't good

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Well I was only watching so they could be more fun to fight when playing, but I mean they were less energetic than those in 2. Like they seem more like sponges than bosses.

  12. For those that completed Kingdom Hearts 3, did you enjoy it?

    1. KHCast


      Yeah I did. Wish it did more, but I don’t regret or hate my time. Wouldn’t even say I’m massively disappointed sine it was still a very fun time 

    2. Wraith


      it was neat

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @KHCast what would you say it did right vs what it did wrong.

    4. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      It was fun, but man does it feel like it's missing a whole lot and was rushed. Doesn't feel like the game folks waited over a decade for.

      It's a good game but it's not as good as KH2FM.

    5. KHCast


      A lot of post game content felt missing when comparing it to 2FM. Outside the ultima weapon, and portals, there’s not really anything worth while. No coliseum, cavern, boss rematches, etc. and plot wise, the Disney stories outside the original plots felt terribly phoned in. Gameplay also still retains a bit of Osaka typicalness. On top of all that it’s missing staple things like radiant garden being playable 

      but gameplay is still fun, and they did a surprisingly great job with the character interactions of both the original and Disney characters. And the humor was on point. So it’s still a great game that is well polished and all that 

  13. Wow. So Screwattack is officially dead and gone. I admit it's been a while since I've seen anything from them, but then again it's because so many of the shows I enjoyed got removed.

    Guess I can watch game attack though.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      It's a shame it's dead, but honestly I began to dislike Screwattack a lot in recent years. A lot of their top 10s and Death Battle desks were pretty stupid or shoved in your standard dead jokes (Sonic ironically being one of the main ones) and I'd gotten sick of Death Battle a long while ago.

      Still pretty sad for a site I used to watch daily.

      Supah Berry

      They had it coming

      They had it coming

      They only had themself to blame

    3. tailsBOOM!


      They were becoming biased more and more as time went on... It's sad because I was once a devoted fan.  I lost interest when they stopped putting a lid on said bias

  14. So just as I got the game I hadn't had a whole lot of time to play RE2. I just got to Mr. X the other day, and fuck me did he live up to the meme.

    Seriously I just opened the door and he knocked me into the previous room.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I was listening to the song associated with the meme just a week ago, just before the meme started. 

      The song video's gone from comments about how giving this to something made it more hardcore to this guy.

  15. Finally got RE2, and finally have the time to play it.

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Have fun, its great!

  16. This needs to be a mod in RE 2


    1. tailsBOOM!


      Hopefully she remembered the brown pants.

    2. Boomer



      ~Knock knock! Open up the door!~

      Mr. X: (opens door)


    3. tailsBOOM!
  17. I'm so excited for Resident Evil 2!

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Got it preordered! Gonna be great!

  18. Guys, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez just showed up in a DK64 stream thats raising money for trans kids:

    Only in 2019 folks

    1. Heckboy


      epic gamer moments

    2. Patticus


      Background: Stream is taking place because Graham Linehan, legendary British comedy show writer, turned out to be a massive transphobic twat, managing to get people on Mumsnet riled up enough to write angry letters to the British lottery, who were going to give a £500k grant to the Mermaids charity. Said grant is now "under review."

  19. Is the Ace Combat series worth getting into? If so should I start with the first game?

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      If you're into arcade flying combat where you shoot other planes as well as tanks and subs with a story included, then sure. There are two control setups especially in the later games where one is arcade like while the other older one is more simulation but nothing like the PC Flight/Combat Simulators.

      As for the first game? No, no, no! The first game (Air Combat) is completely different to the rest of the series as that is more of a simulator. Even that got its own sequel in the arcade. Fans usually start with Japanese version of 3 or at least 4 on the PS2 as that's where the series starts getting its identity.

      Myself? I've only played Ace Combat Legacy on the 3DS (remake of Ace Combat 2 to make it like the later games) and Ace Combat: Skies of Deception on the PSP. Both solid games.

  20. It's 2019 and Venom is better than Superman...

    I don't....... I..... someone hold me, I'm scared.

    1. TheOcelot


      Well to be fair, anyone is better than Superman 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Superman became so much better when he was a family man. Him being a mentor and dad was the best, and DC just pissed it away.

  21. Officially done with all Superman books Brian Bendis is writing. #7 broke me in two with it's stupidity.

  22. Not everyday I can see an Ad and go "Fuck yeah!"


  23. We need more Sonic games like Lost World.

    1. Kuzu


      I will murder you

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      So how's that playthrough goin' Kuzu?

    3. Ferno



      but we already have bad sonic games

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Ferno But we need more. MOOOOOOOORRREEE
