  1. So far we've had one intriguing scenario courtesy of Shinji and Tango, but so far the conference has been Bethesda trying and failing to jerk themselves off for the world to see.

  2. I know it's not going to happen but I would really like a new Evil Within announcement.

  3. Well Bethesda is up.

  4. But for real though, I'm sorry nothing came from the Banjo rumor, guys. But lets be honest, Keanu made up for it.

      How does having an actor on stage make up for the lack of videogames at a video game conference?

    2. KHCast


      ^This man doesn’t understand Keanu Reeves

    3. Wraith


      Yall come up with Banjo speculation every year

    4. Bobnik


      We still have an E3 Direct, they could be a Smash character. Who knows at this point.

      @Legendary Emerald Because anytime you witness Keanu's majesty it's like basking in god's angelic light, also he's just that damn likable.

    7. KHCast


      I’m still pretty sure he’ll be in Smash 

    8. Penny


      yeah keanu in smash is gonna be sick

    9. Thigolf



  5. That new Banjo trailer was hot fire for years on end! Seriously we aren't worthy!

      Somebody's sure having a good time at this year's E3.

      I'm having a good time basking in the salt

  6. The Donald/Daisy 80's power team is something I never knew I wanted.

      @Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice And he's making it work. I'm scared.

  7. Why is the fauna in that Fallen Order so uninspired? It's an alien world and your telling me the best they can come up with is giant bugs?

      @SupahBerry Okay sure, but even then that doesn't necesarily mean that ducks in the SW universe have to be anything like the ones in ours.

  8. That Marvel fumble last year is turning into a fucking miracle.

    Happy Pride month everyone....*sigh*

  9. Picked up Ace Combat 4 & 5 for $13. Did I do good?

  10. TF right now when you log on to Motobug


  11. EA...yeah...But in better news, today I learned about the Hazlenut Bastille KS. Dumb name sure, but it looks fun to play.

  12. Get on with it!

  13. Woolie's play-through of the 3rd Birthday is really upsetting. Not because the play-through itself is bad, but because of what Square made Aya into. Seriously, no protagonist should moan that much.

  14. Of what I have seen of RWBY this seems accurate. Also Chibi is better.

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Those Ruby and Qrow voices are uncannily accurate.

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Especially since the Ruby voice was just the narrator's voice pitched up.

    3. Strickerx5


      I don't necessarily agree with a lot of it but there's still a lot of funny truth in this.

      Especially the Qrow bit, my god.

  15. So Tom King thought it was a good idea to have Bane be behind everything? *groan*

    1. Ryannumber1gamer



      The entirety of the story to be fair was said to be a spiritual successor to Knightfall, which does make sense if you think about it.

      Knightfall was much the same in that it was about Bane planning and organising a legion of villains to force Batman to constantly fight and go without sleep, leaving him too exhausted to launch a proper counter against Bane, which led to Bane breaking Batman physically. However, Batman’s spirit proves to be too strong as he tries to rise up again.

      This story tries to do the same that Bane has organised all of these villains to set up a scheme where Bane could break Batman not only in body, but in mind, which IMO is a cool idea.

      The problem is the story is far too overtold, multiple issues were just fucking time wasters (A lot of Knightmares in particular), Batman became downright unlikeable because the story just frankly had zero direction after Cold Days and it felt like it was running through the notions more than anything else, not to mention how they decided to fuck over Nightwing too between that storyline and Issue 50 of Nightwing.

      The plan is also downright ridiculous. The original was relatively simple and fixable because Bane just needed to send out a constant stream of enemies who start up any chaos to keep wearing out Batman  physically and as long as they did that, Bane’s plan is working.

      But this plan required so many insanely specific details that it’s on the point of ridicule. Expecting Catwoman to care enough (someone who’s specified as an anti hero who wants what she wants over the greater good), believing Booster Gold, who is already known as an egotistical shit by Tom King, The Joker of all people agreeing to the plan despite the fact he had a whole arc literally about how he and only he is allowed to kill Batman. 

      Or y’know, the fact Hush basically accomplished the same thing and is one of the best Batman stories of all time and doesn’t require 85 issues to tell that story with a increasingly silly plan. 

      And should we even mention how fucking shit Thomas Wayne is

  16. We had a drunk driving incident in the city 2 days ago. Three 19 year old girls were killed two day's ago, and my previous boss just informed me that a former co-worker was among them.

    1. tailsBOOM!


      Sorry to hear that dude

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Thanks. We weren't that close and were total opposites personality wise. She didn't deserve this, she shouldn't have had to die young because some bastard thought he was good to go after a couple drinks.

  17. Okay here's the situation. I have a spare digital key for Bloodstained: ROTN for PS4, and it's up for grabs. First person that PM's me get's it.

    Edit: And @Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice get's it!

      Can it magically turn into a Xbox One code?

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Blue Wisp Sorry, I only put in for the PS4

  18. I gotta go for now but when I get back there's something I need to take care of.

  19. I'm going to drop the My Hero Academia manga, just not enjoying it right now.

    1. Sean


      I lost interest right after the Overhaul arc (or whatever it's called), just doesn't really have the same charm that I felt it had earlier on imo. Never got bad or anything, but shonen in general has a really hard time keeping my interest these days

      I guess that's what happens when you have an ever-expanding cast and need to juggle attention between new characters, established characters, and only sometimes giving development to the central character

    2. Mega


      Aw, man. I hope the anime can make up for any shortcomings the manga has.

    3. Soniman


      I think the current arc is doing some great stuff with the villans (a known weak point of the series) so I disagree 

    4. Marcello


      Really? The current arc has been great.

    5. Polkadi~☆


      Aww, that's a shame. I feel like this My Villain Academia arc is one of the best ones of the whole series at the moment.

  20. Man, if the Reddit evolutionary details involving Scorbunny are correct then like why?



    Scorbunny looks like a fire-fighting type, but it's just pure fire with fighting moves. Like how Incineroar looks like a fighting type but isn't

      Big Panda

      Are you looking at a different leak? ‘Cos the one I saw said


    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Ernest the Panda Yeah, but the one I read called the announcement stuff before it aired. they also shared some info on the bad guy team... If that's true then they can join Team Flair in their irrelevance.

      Spoilers (?): http://boards.4channel.org/vp/thread/38788180#p38791786

  21. Anyone else just unimpressed by the latest Pokemon battle gimmick?

    1. tailsBOOM!


      Not really.  I think it's cool.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      To be totally honest with you, yes and no. I didn't like Mega Evolutions for being so OP, limited and mostly ugly designs. I didn't like Z moves for how bloody cheesy they were, plus they were functionally boring.

      Dynamaxing isn't all too on paper and looks goofy as all hell, but I do like what it does in practice. Any Pokémon can be dynamaxed, it's a temporary boost that lasts only a few turns and it plays into Wild Pokémon too. Definitely best of the bunch.

    3. Teoskaven


      I'm just sad to see GameFreak is once again not learning from the past and ignoring the previous gimmicks instead of reinforcing them while introducing a new one altogether.

    4. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      Its already got a leg up on Mega Evo because at bare minimum at least all the Gym Leaders will use it against you. Mega Evolution was hidden from you like the game didn't think you could handle the additional challenge.

      So at least the game will use its big new battle mechanic, instead of hiding it in the post game.

    5. Strickerx5


      I like what it does in terms of mechanics.

      I don’t like how goofy it looks tho

  22. Why on earth would DC show Batman's penis and immediately back down the second anyone made fun of it?

    1. Big Panda
    2. Wraith


      because it was headline bait designed to get attention on the book

      the scarcity of said penis book after the retraction inspired more people to rush out and buy it in turn

      it was orchestrated bat penis manipulation 

      bat dick will be a collectors item

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Need more context here =p

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Ernest the Panda DC came up with a new imprint called DC Black Label which was intended to be a more mature line of short run books. And one of them had Batman's dick, and when that got noteriety DC freaked the fuck out like they didn't expect this to happen.


    5. Diogenes



      Why on earth would DC show Batman's penis 

      could've stopped there

    6. Ferno


      Then they were like "it didn't add to the story so we removed it" afterwards

      Like as someone who has a hobby of drawing girls in outfits and stuff that really don't practically add much to the stories I have in mind at all besides being fun to draw, that's no excuse imo.

      Maybe the artist behind the batdong sillouette was in a similar state of mind. "I mean this thing's for adults right time for artsy dong even if ultimately unneeded"

  23. Figured out why the GUN Truck wants to kill Sonic so badly. It want's to send him to an Isekai.

    1. Polkadi~☆


      All the start of the plot to my favourite isekai, ソニックと暗黒の騎士 (better known in English as 'Sonic and the Black Knight')

      @Ernest the Panda Basically the truck wants to take Sonic to another world by killing him. It's an over used method of Japanese Isekai stories about being killed via a truck and being reincarnated as a broken character in a fantasy world.

    5. Big Panda
    6. Diogenes


      gun truck is a big fan of the storybook games

    7. E-122-Psi


      Seriously GUN are such chronic 'cover our own mistakes by killing innocent people over actually trying to stop the crimes' corrupt assholes that it seemed really dark they weren't taken out by the end of the game.

      Why did Shadow join them again? I mean what did they do to show they had changed in the past fifty years?

    8. Bobnik


      Nothing in the games really, but off-screen they probably approached Shadow and said "we sowwy pls join us" or w/e. I don't know how (if at all) that was covered in Archie comics.

    9. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Bobnik in the pre-SGW continuity at least, Shadow actually came to GUN first and asked to join (according to the Encyclopedia)

  24. Happy pride month everyone!

  25. Heroes in Crisis is like DC's Sonic 06

    1. Wraith


      Generally I like Tom King alright but it's so fucking bad, man

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Not helped by the fact Tom King decided to use up some of that 100 issue run of Batman to set up characters to die in that arc.

      *sigh* I just hope Last Knight on Earth is good.

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Wraith @Ryannumber1gamer The story only gets worse, it's revealed that King didn't even get to choose characters.


    4. Dejimon11


      What's it about? 

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Dejimon11 Imagine a book that was supposed to be about superheroes dealing with the mental trials and stress that comes with it. Now imagine that, but it's written by the people that behind 13 Reasons Why.

    6. Dejimon11


      Sooo they romanticize metal health? 

    7. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      In some spots yes, but more accurately King can't display mental health. Like even the big reveal doesn't make a lick of sense given what has been established.
