  1. Listening to a podcast that's summarizing the latest RWBY season... I just got to the part about the dark god crashing into the moon like a driver after an all night rager.

    1. Dejimon11


      What podcast is this?

    2. Balding Spider
  2. Mary Jane is getting a comic book, and something is happening with Annihilation again(?)

  3. Good lord, Ducktales even referenced Quackerjack's time top


  4. Creepshow the series is looks fun

    Also did anyone know they made a Creepshow 3? I just found this out.

    1. Soniman


      Where's Max???

      And no Mickey because he wasn't in Disney Afternoon Canon unless you count House of Mouse lmao 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Soniman He's probably staying over at Pete's place chilling with P.J.

    3. Forgetful Panda

      Forgetful Panda

      Aren’t the original and modern Ducktales series’ two different canons?

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I mean yeah, but it's not like they can't bring in this cannon's take on those characters.

    5. Forgetful Panda

      Forgetful Panda

      So that would mean the Disney Afternoon Universe seen in Ducktales 2017 is a different DAU from the one in the 90s.

  5. Oh it's Kamala Khan, and that dumb Terrigen Mist.

    1. mayday2592


      Whats your problem with it? It It is true to her origin after all. Is there some rule Inhumans cant  have representation?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Dude, you're reading too much into my post. Yes it's from her origin, but then it also led to some of the dumbest story lines from the comics. That's my only real beef with the Terrigen mist.

  6. That Avengers gameplay looks so limited and restrictive. Also God of War has the best Thor combat apparently.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Are you talking about Ultimate Alliance 3 or the SE Avengers?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      The SE one. I don't care for UA3 but that game has its own established identity so I doubt I'll ever really lay into it.

    3. Teoskaven


      The part that has been leaked seems to be focusing on the prologue, and for your average AAA cinematic action game usually it's one of the more scripted parts, so i'm not too surprised.

  7. Can you imagine if future Sonic games continue to spam its main theme song as much as Forces did?

    1. Strickerx5


      Imo, rather have that than no theme song at all tbh. It's like a part of LW/Gens was just missing.

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      If you think Forces spammed it's main theme too much, you obviously don't remember Secret Rings all that well.

    3. Perkilator


      He, wouldn't mind, honestly. It's a decent way to help keep a game's recognizable, imo.

    4. TCB


      Nothing wrong with a leitmotif :^)

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Waveshocker Sigma TBH I don't recall Secret Rings that well outside of some of the multiplayer games

    6. SupahBerry


      Oh, and you're just gonna let Mario, Kirby and the Smash series (since Brawl) get away with spamming their theme songs on a regular basis?


      At least no matter how many times they are, you can count on Nintendo themes at least having variation if they're to be heard a dozen times. Sonic Forces just slaps its chorus onto a QTE and calls it a day.

    7. Harkofthewaa


      @Balding Spider In Secret Rings the main theme plays when you are in the main menu. Completing any stage or mission brings you to the main menu. In a game based around doing like 10 missions per stage. So basically every time you do anything...


    8. Strickerx5


      @HarkofthewaaDon't forget that it's also the theme for the result screen.

    9. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Harkofthewaa oof, maybe I didn't forget but blocked it out for my own sanity.

    10. Celestia


      I don't mind it honestly. Often the variants are better than the "main" version anyway, I don't like TSR's Crush 40 song much but the menu versions and stuff are nice.

  8. That Cats trailer made it easier for me to accept the Sonic movie design and premise... I-I think this trailer took something from me.

    1. Perkilator


      Initial contempt for the original design, I take it?

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Perkilator No, I mean the on-screen nightmare from the trailer.

  9. A reminder that in Marvel's The Defenders New York is held up by dragon skeletons.... and people wonder why the movies refuse to acknowledge the shows.


    Well most of them anyway. Nice of them to acknowledge the Agent Carter show.


  10. There should have been a Ken Penders world in KH3


    And now that I've put it there we wait for the fanfiction





    1. Ryannumber1gamer
    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Oh don't act like you wouldn't want to see the Lara-su family take on the Organization.


      And possibly Atlantis


  11. I didn't think they'd care enough to do a best of, but thanks!


  12. Huh, Woolie's not a fan of Team Sonic Racing.

    1. Dejimon11


      Don’t blame him. But he said he’s not a fan of racing games in general.

  13. I just learned that Holly Conrad tried to make Etika's tragedy all about herself. NSFW obviously:

    Internet celebs, I fucking swear.

    1. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Well that's a severe yikes and oy vey.

  14. So what was the last Ubisoft game you bought? For me it was Watch Dogs 2 back in 2017 ( I really need to play it at some point).

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      You definitely should play Watch Dogs 2, it's a really fantastic game, even given Ubi's usual bullshit. I loved it enough to 100% it and then doing another story run a year or so later.

    2. PublicEnemy1


      Mario + Rabbids. Actually good game.

    3. Sean


      Off the top of my head, the only Ubi games I own are the Rayman trilogy, Origins, Legends, and Beyond Good and Evil, all which I bought years ago.

    4. Marcello


      Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It's fantastic.

    5. DiamondX


      Rayman Legends when it became free for PS+.

    6. Milo


      Legends when it was on sale on the Wii U eShop. (Same case with Origins, on sale on PSN for PS3).

      I think those and the second Raving Rabbids game (Wii) are the only Ubisoft games I have. :V

    7. tailsBOOM!


      ... I actually don't think I've bought one.  The closest is Brawlhalla, which I stupidly bought the all character's pass for.

  15. Valkyrie Profile was such a good game. Also Seto Kaiba was the main love interest.

  16. We are living in a time where Black Cat and Silver Surfer are outselling Batman. Guy's I'm scared.


    1. Zaysho


      *looks at prices*

      Man am I glad I stopped buying comics.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Zaysho Buying comics is suffering, you made the right call.

    3. Zaysho


      When I realized I was spending around $200 a year at the comic shop for maybe five books a month (didn't help that the shop I went to was getting worse with its management) I knew I needed to make some changes. Cutting out that habit felt good.

  17. 25 issues in and I think Dr. Stone is pretty legit. Just hope it can keep the pace and not fall on it's face like other manga.

  18. I officially love Chrome and Senku's relationship.

  19. All right, giving the Doctor Stone manga a shot.

    Edit: I'm really digging this art style

    1. Diogenes


      excellent choice

  20. The hell happened with the Lion King remake? https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_lion_king_2019

    at a 57 percent... ugh

    1. QuantumEdge


      Yeah, maybe it's just best to just rewatch the classic original instead.

    2. SupahBerry


      That makes three movies in a row where they have a lower rating... than Detective Pikachu.

  21. Is anyone still watching Agents of SHIELD?

    1. KHCast


      Nnnope. Marvel television I give barely attention to anymore 

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @KHCast You...aren't wrong for taking that stance.

    3. KHCast


      Did it really hit the shitter recently?

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @KHCast I only watched the premier of that latest season and left. They went to space and introduced a nega-Coulson which on paper might sound fun, but man did I just feel unimpressed. It want's to do so much but doesn't have the budget to properly achieve its vision.

      Also it's continuing the doomed lovers schick with Fitz and Simmons. Well I guess I still have Cloak and Dagger to look forward to, even if it can't stick the finale episodes.

  22. This is me after watching the Shantae 5 trailer, then immediately learning she's 16


    1. PublicEnemy1


      I don't know WHY the devs are making her that young if they're just going to lewd her in the first five seconds of the trailer.

    2. SupahBerry


      Welcome to Wayforward.


      @SenEDDtor Missile

      > Yeah. And the franchise is a western property?

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Japanese consent laws influencing their work again? (IIRC their age is a bit lower).

    4. Wraith


      Shantae is not a japanese character

    5. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Oh, nevermind then. I thought it was Japanese for some reason.

    6. Diogenes


      nerds horny

    7. PublicEnemy1


      Well, the animation WAS done by Studio Trigger, but WayForward OK'd it.

    8. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      This is fucking with me really hard. I mean in one of the games she's wearing a more revealing slave Leia outfit, and then there's the crawling animation from 1/2 Genie hero.... I don't feel comfortable playing this series anymore.

      @SenEDDtor Missile For the record the consent law in Japan is 13

      @PublicEnemy1 It's so fucking wrong the opening focuses on her boobs and crotch/waist.

    9. TCB


      It funny how this is popping up again but not to this sort of level to me

    10. PublicEnemy1


      I mean, this COULD be a game where it takes place in two years in the future. Still weird.

    11. Polkadi~☆


      I'm genuinely curious why that does not concern me at all.

      I guess part of it is that she belly dances, so I just go "sounds about right."


      Also, the age of consent in Japan is 16. The laws say 13, but every prefecture said "fuck that," and raised it in their local laws.

    12. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I assumed due to being a genie is the typical "oh yeah she's older than she looks" thing but wow.

    13. JosepHenry


      @Polkadi~☆that doesn't concern me at all either and is weird cuz I hate that kind of shit... but I give Shantae a pass cuz... reasons I guess. I dunno why. Maybe I am just used to people sexualizing minors like highschoolers to death that when I see Shantae... this is fine in comparison I guess.

    14. PublicEnemy1


      I'm not accusing all of them being perverts. Hell, Shantae herself was made by series creator Matt Bozon's wife.

    15. JosepHenry


      yeah maybe that's why I give it a pass? Shantae herself is well taken care by her creators and the backstory of her creatiom is pretty cool. But things would be much comfortable if she was around 20. I don't see why they couldn't change that up. 

    16. Milo





      FBI, OPEN UP



      This really feels like a situation that whoever was responsible for doing a certain job picked arguably the absolute worst option possible.

    17. Sean


      I enjoy the series and I really love its art style and characters designs (some aspects of my art are influenced by Bozon's style lol) but I think it's fair if people don't like it. I elect to ignore Shantae's age since it's never mentioned in the games themselves, like how Yoko is SUPPOSEDLY 14 yet this is never once mentioned in TTGL so I just pretend that isn't the case.

  23. Saw Spider-man. It was alright.
