  1. All those Marvel/Disney fans conveniently forgetting how disturbingly mismanaged their Netflix division was.

    1. Ryannumber1Santa


      Their Netflix division was mismanaged because it was handled by different people altogether, and said people were also fucking with the MCU as well.

      It's well-documented that the head of Marvel itself was notorious for fucking with the MCU, to the point IIRC - Chris Evans and RDJ were ready to not renew their contracts due to his constant interference, as it led to so many movies and decisions being boring as fuck.

      On top of that, said head was also the one trying to shoehorn in Inhumans as the next big thing in the MCU, and was constantly interfering with the creative process. Feige had to literally threaten to leave the MCU unless Disney themselves stepped in. So because of that, the MCU was handled exclusive by Feige, while the TV/Netflix division was handled by the same Marvel head who was interfering before, which is also why the TV/Netflix stuff never tied into the actual movies.

      Yeah I know why it happened, I'm pointing out fans that hold that company on a high pedestal keep conveniently forgetting how mismanaged a branch of the Marvel branch was.

  2. Real talk, so long as Sony doesn't fuck up Spider-verse anytime soon (lets be honest they'll drive that into the ground one day) I'll be good for Spidey content.

    1. Boomer


      Same. That and the PS4 games.

  3. Wow, uh, looks like Game Informer is on its last legs, people are getting laid off.

    1. tailsBOOM!
    2. Zaysho


      why don't these companies that are going under just come out and say "fired" already

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Zaysho Because it sounds better, and companies are all about manipulation via wording. Even as they're taking on water apparently.

  4. Anyone else think "what took them so long?" After the Sony Purchasing Insomniac news came to light?

    1. Strickerx5


      I was more “Well fuck, that completely tanks my chance of getting Spider-Man on PC”

    2. Polkadi~☆


      @Strickerx5 it’s a ps4 exclusive, why were you getting your hopes up

    3. Strickerx5


      Sunset Overdrive was an Xbox exclusive tho

    4. Polkadi~☆


      yeah, but it got to come to PC as a “microsoft exclusive”

    5. Strickerx5


      It's on Steam though.

    6. Polkadi~☆


      so are other microsoft games, and?

    7. Strickerx5


      It was very much positioned in a way that made it look like Insomniac had made the call, not Microsoft. Even then, not every Microsoft game on PC has the Steam attachment. It was a special case that, I had hoped, would carry over with Spider-Man seeing as Insomniac was still a third party; even with as small of a chance it had. No one thought Sunset would ever make the jump either back then.

      But hey, guess it's stuck in 30fps hell for the time being. Seriously, I really do hope Microsoft do well over the next few years and force a change in the other two.

    8. Polkadi~☆


      Alright, fair enough. Only some Microsoft games make it to Steam, it’s a very on-off thing.

      I guess it was with Spider-Man that Sony Entertainment were given the opportunity to make a Marvel game, not Insomniac. But when told of the opportunity by Sony Entertainment, Insomniac offered to be the one to make something of it. Therefore, the distribution rights aren’t up to Insomniac, as they don’t actually own the game (in a sense). Whereas for Sunset Overdrive, Insomniac offered to make the game exclusively for Xbox One, so they initiated and therefore own the game.

    9. Ryannumber1Santa


      does that mean sunset overdrive can come to ps4

    10. Kuzu


      "You mean they weren't owned by Sony already?"

  5. Remember that time when Dracula tried to make Storm his bride?

  6. Cannon Busters intro song is fire.

  7. Enter the Florpus was a good movie.

  8. Had to stop following Jim Cummings after one too many pro Trump retweets. Seriously, do you know how awkward it was to explain a Bill O'reilly tweet excusing Trumps racism in my feed?

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      As much as it sucks to have such an iconic voice actor turn out to support the Traitor Trump, I can’t help but find a sick amusement in the idea of Winnie the Pooh hailing Trump, for what little that’s worth.

    2. Supah Berry

      I preyed that his sex alligations were fake... for this?

    3. PublicEnemy1


      Aw, man, that sucks.

    4. SonicWind


      Et tu, Jim? Dammit.

    5. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      Son of a bitch, why...

    6. PaddyFancy


      Bang goes any respect I had for Jim Cummings.

      Man it actually really sucks to hear about this. Wish I continue to live in blissful ignorance of someone’s political beliefs without accidentally coming across statuses like this.

    7. Winter Spirit Ultima

      Winter Spirit Ultima

      Well that's unfortunate.

    8. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Funny really, his character in the Ducktales Reboot became the villain after being the hero for so long, and now in real life the voice actor of so many iconic voices and hero of so many people’s childhoods has chosen to throw his lot in with the closest thing to a real life super villain.

      "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain."

  9. Captain Marvel.... it feels regressive, I mean that within the MCU. It feels like a phase 1 movie, kind of like the first Thor. It didn't fully embrace its comic book heritage and spent the majority of its time on earth when so much more could have been done with it. It also feels like this and Guardians were shown out of order.

    It's not bad but it didn't reach the levels I expected it would like the majority of Phase 3 movies. I'd give it a 6/10, again not bad but it could have been a lot more than it was IMO

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      How do you feel captain marvel and guardians were shown out of order?

      Ronan barely had any scenes.

      And I get where your coming from. Its like with Ant Man, I felt it was a phase 1 film. I know it was originally suppose to be phase 1 but they didnt change it around or make it stand out like most of phase 2

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I mean in that in Guardians it's told to us that the Kree have a sketchy past, so due to that the big twist is ruined in Captain Marvel.

  10. Alright, time to finally watch Captain Marvel.

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Let us know your thoughts. 

  11. Star Wars resistance is finished after season 2. Did anyone else watch it?

    1. Jingilator
    2. Marcello


      Season 1 got continually better as it went on. Personally, I really enjoyed it.

      Just wish they'd release a Blu-ray >_>

  12. Oh cool, Nintendo just took away all their game music from youtube. Rest in peace BrawlBRSTMs3 X and GilvaSunner.


    1. Polkadi~☆


      oh get stuffed, nintendo

    2. Ferno


      No more being productive for hours on end with Good Egg Galaxy in the background on loop.

      This sucks

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Ferno For me it was Misty Menace from Donkey Kong when reading a book late at night.

      i want my splatoon music, and the soundtrack CDs are too expensive

    6. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry



      Watch as they gun down Siivagunner next. Without even bothering to play the music first.

    7. Polkadi~☆


      Wouldn’t be the first time that’s happened.

    8. Strickerx5


      And here's me actually hoping Nintendo forgets that they own Kid Icarus again for a second.

    9. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Strickerx5 Ooof... losing that soundrrack is gonna hurt.


      Good thing I already downloaded it


    10. SonicWind



      Nintendo won't let us have anything.

    11. Milo


      Oh well, at least it’s a good thing that the majority of their videogame OSTs are available for purchase or strPFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT

      *glares at Tropical Freeze, curses under breath*


      (so how long until they start reclaiming copyright ID/ad revenue on YouTube videos of their games)

    12. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      If they would just release their dang soundtracks--which many of us would gladly BUY. With MONEY--maybe people wouldn't put all their music up on YouTube.

      ...Okay, yeah, they still would, but STILL...it's like Nintendo doesn't like money.

    13. Winter Spirit Ultima

      Winter Spirit Ultima

      Aw shit. No more Dire Dire Docks.

      EDIT: okay so in their twitter thread coincidentally Brawl was actually gonna shut down on the 6th anniversary of their founding. Yeezus.

  13. *sigh* The end is in sight, Summer term is coming to a close and my internship is finished and I'll get a month to myself.

    Just need to finish finals.

  14. I'm upset that the new Silver Surfer just exists to give more lore to Cate's creation Knull.

  15. So, did anyone know She-Ra season 3 came out? Cause I didn't.

  16. Reading through the old Excalibur run from 88, and the second cyclops dad shows up with his space crew in 93 the art style transitions to Liefeld era, and it sucks:



    Look at this

    1. tailsBOOM!


      Don't know why, but seeing this brought this into my mind:


    2. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      robin's expression though

  17. Weird that the latest Ghostrider book is about Danny and not Robbie. Then again Marvel have shown they didn't know how to market him outside of the first ark.

    1. Celestia


      I guess he's too busy with Avengers stuff, at least last time I checked. (I need to catch up on that book actually, it's great.)

  18. The first thing I'm going to do after this term is over is finally watch Captain Marvel.

    I'll try and leave my prejudice for the character in the books.

  19. You! Yes, you, why aren't you talking about Team Sonic Racing?!

    1. Ferno


      i still think the heroes remake should've been the rumor that was real

    2. tailsBOOM!


      I still talk about it

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      That's the thing... There isn't anything to talk about with TSR.


      At least with CTR, people talk, but for both the right and wrong reasons. TSR is merely there. It's a better game than Forces and the like, but again, there's still much less to write home about either way.

    4. SaturnWolf


      I can't afford the game

    5. Milo


      You mean Team Crash Racing, right? Although that's called Crash Team Racing, you made a mi-

      Huh? What?

      What's a Team Sonic Racing?

    6. Polkadi~☆


      what is there that can be said

    7. NegaMetallix


      Team who and what, now?

    8. Dejimon11


      Once you’ve played the game you’ve pretty much seen what it has to offer. It’s a game that exist with the most basic race tracks, it’s team gimmick really isn’t as good as I thought it would be although tower of that has to do with me not playing with more than 4 people. 

      The only positives I can say are the animated shorts and the music. Besides that you’re just better off playing Mario Kart 8 or Crash Team Racing.

  20. Today I learned that our town is having a LGBTQ pride party in early August.

    I might go, depends on how hot it is and how long my internship last that day.

  21. Aww man, Youngblood's story is lame.

  22. Ghostrider might be the most mishandled character(s) from Marvel. I mean they can't even keep his signature move consistent.

    1. Dejimon11


      In a world where Jean Grey exist that's saying a lot.

    2. Jingilator


      Tell me about it.


      Why does he sound like Dr. Claw in this game?


    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Dejimon11 I mean think about it. The ghost riders are basically demons that protect only the innocent, kind of like roaming demon terminators. Shouldn't they be casually taking out humans left and right whenever they are in close proximity?

      Also the Penance stare doesn't make sense as a tool to fight off evil. I mean its based on guilt, and ghost rider fights many demons, whom shouldn't be affected by it in any way.

  23. Jessica Alba's twitter got hacked. It's not as bad as it could be, but its still really bad.

  24. Rest in peace Russi Taylor, voice of Minnie Mouse, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Martin from the Simpsons among others.

    1. Kuzu


      Damn, first Wayne Allwine and now her...Mickie and Minnie are gone...

  25. Guys if you play single player in Youngblood you can't even pause the game: https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/07/25/wolfenstein-youngblood-review

      I DON'T KNOW. I've been racking my brain trying to make sense of this like
