    Nickelodeon Animation Discussion

    I would have dismissed this as yet another nostalgic relaunch that fails to capture the spirit of the original, with not even the original creators being enough to inspire faith in me. But that Hey Arnold movie as well as the Rocko's Modern Life short was so on-point that I feel a bit more optimistic about this. I am curious who will be playing Stu, since I can't picture anyone but Jack Riley in the role. It's going to be hard to replace him.

    Is Jason Griffith right wing?

    We're not going to allow a topic made explicitly to gossip about the personal views and lives of other people, thanks. Besides, he couldn't be any worse than those people who listen to Sonic music on YouTube! D=
  3. Thinking I'll go ahead and put this in Personal Discussion since it is sort of a personal topic and don't want it to attract the wrong kind of attention.

      mario odyssey, mario and rabbids, breath of the wild, kirby star allies, sonic mania, tropical freeze

      Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2 - I know they're multiplatform but having the entirety of the mainline Classic series portably is really fun, especially since with exception to MM8, you can get through stages in a few minutes or so. 

      Sonic Mania - goes without saying, absolutely perfect port and amazing for portability.

      As for Switch exclusives - Bayonetta, Odyssey are brilliant. Only go for BOTW if you're into massive non-linear titles and feel that's fine. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is also fantastic for co-op platforming, and there's Crash N Sane Trilogy later this month which will be great to have on a portable handheld.

      If he's into grid and turn based combat with funny writing and an interesting story, I could be talking about Disgaea 1 but I'm also referring to Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer


      How on earth did I forget Splat 2, Kirby, and Kingdom Battle

      ALSO MK8D

    7. Tara


      Current standing are:

      Mario Odyssey

      Kirby Star Allies

      Splatoon 2

      Xenoblade 2

      Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee

      DKC: Tropical Freeze

    I've an idea for a story, but I can't write it

    There's a saying that there's no such thing as good writing, only good re-writing. Many novelists start by planning novels for months before they ever even sit down at a keyboard. The easiest thing to do would be to just start writing whatever's on your mind. Write the scenes that you know you want to write first, then work on contextualizing them later. For example, if you have an idea for an interesting romance scene, write the romantic scene first and then work out the before and after later. If all you have is a concept, just start writing out the concept. And don't undermine the importance of an outline. Having a flexible (but not too flexible) outline of your plot will help you stay on track and give you some steady direction. Also remember that not everything you write has to be for a wider audience. Write down something just to get it out of your head. You'll be surprised what you come back to revisit, even for completely unrelated narratives. Hope this advice is helpful.

    The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    So I just got this news story from my FaceBook feed so I apologize if it means nothing and/or contains many inaccuracies because I can't be arsed to Google right now. But apparently a federal judge has ruled that Trump can not block people on Twitter on the basis of political views. As social media garners an increasingly large presence in modern living, this makes me question quite a few things. For one, the fact that a personal Twitter account, even a Twitter account of someone with as much power as the president, can be considered a "public forum" and thus be dis-entitled to the protections of any other Twitter account does raise an alarming precedence that could potentially be exploited later by a particularly malicious party (though I don't think it's that likely). I also firmly believe in the interpretation that the first amendment allows you a right to free speech, but not right to be heard. So even if they're political opinions I agree with, I'm a little iffy on the "you have to give these guys a platform" ruling at play. On the other hand, as stated, the Twitter account of the president of the United States is an incredibly different beast than someone random person's Sonic blog or whatever. It naturally carries a lot more weight, and because the account is a public forum between a government figure and the public, this does create a discrepancy in circumstances. And it would be... well, dishonest in many ways to use "it's a personal account" as a justification for anything when the "personal" account does, indeed, operate as a public forum and is used consistently to sway public interests and to market a campaign. You can't have your cake and eat it, too, in other words. Anyway, it'll be interesting what, if anything, this could mean for social media in politics in the long run.
  12. You maniacs!!! You blew it up!!! Aagh, daaaaamn yooooou!!! GOD damn you all to HEEEELL!!!!
  13. To be fair, TTG only has more episodes namely by virtue of- 1) each episode only being 10 minutes long. 2) being a series that is driven by longevity rather than narrative, and thus episodes are pushed out on a constant basis, rather than carefully crafted and spaced out over a long period of time. The shorter episode count doesn't really discredit the accomplishments of the original Teen Titans and probably works more to its advantage, actually.
  14. My favorite level on the ideal difficulty setting.

      Wait, that’s an actual game title?

    2. Tara


      It's placeholder text for when there's a game error.

    3. Penny


      isn’t that splinter cell double agent?

    4. Tara


      Yes, it is.

      Man, I always hated playing MAP MAP MAP MAP MAP MAP MAP MAP MAP MAP MAP MAP. 

    6. Tara


      Don't worry.  It's on DIFFICULTY so it shouldn't be too hard.

    7. Forte-Metallix


      Oh, man. I don't know if I can handle Difficulty Difficulty. That mode's really difficult.

    8. Penny


      the only real hard part of that mission is the objective objective. really tricky, even on difficulty difficulty
