  1. Well damn, I knew it was probably going to happen soon but man... Rip Mr. Marvel

  2. I hate that it still amazes me just how quickly the internet will ruin something.

    1. Dejimon11


      Everytime a new female character is introduce.

    2. Kiah


      It’s sad that we are beyond the point of “if” and even “when” but we are at “how quickly” that will happen.

      memes were a mistake

      Eh, something stupid overall. Long story short, have been quietly enjoying a dub of some anime for about a week now, find that the ova was never dubbed, go to see why, turns out there was this pretty big blow out about how two lines had been changed into some political stance that people (more than likely a majority of whom were on the left) got amazingly upset over which is probably why Funi never bothered to get that final ep done. It was a small show so there was no real reason for them to continue it at that point I guess... like damn man

  3. Played Ulitmate at that Holiday event (pays to live so close to the second biggest mall in the country for once) and a few takeaways. Kirby and K Rool might just be top tier. Game looks beautiful. Quite a bit faster than 4. And either they mapped the pro controller in the absolute worst way or I’m sticking to the GC controller because that control scheme they had is straight trash.

    Fun time though. Even when it started the line was long af. A lot of hyped fans from all over are showing up. Will probably go again more than once since it’s so damn close.

      I hated the way the grab buttons weren't mapped to ZL and ZR on the gamepad in 4, but thankfully you're allowed to change button configurations it in that game, and you can probably here too

      Kirby and a heavy character both being good is unusual, I hope they gave a lot of substantial buffs to often bad characters

    3. Strickerx5


      @Dejimon11Surprised with Kirby’s placing. He just kept winning.

      Pits seems right on though. I swear they gimped him...

    4. Dejimon11


      The biggest surprise is that Pichu is that high. And of course Diddy and Shiek are back at the top. 

    5. Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      Not to diss meta players, but uh, those tier lists are heavily prone to change. 

    6. Adamabba


      Yea, Im positive the actual tier list is gonna look a lot different when the game comes out. Same thing happened in 4

    7. SupahBerry


      How sweet to see Pikachu reclaim his throne after all these years.

    8. Dejimon11


      Remember when Smash 3DS came out and Little Mac was top tier?

    Sonic Forces Anniversary~

    A year later and this still gets a resounding "meeeh" from me. It's no secret that I was really gunning for this game. Most of the news we got of it made it seem like the Sonic game that I had (and still quite frankly have been) wishing for. It seemed to be calling my name. Everything from bringing back the boost, giving it a story worth a damn, running on an actual successor to the HE after 9 long years, straight down to finally bringing back vocal theme songs. Literally the only thing I was actively against the game from the start was bringing in Classic Sonic which furthered the lack of actual 3D in a 3D Sonic game. Up until the game's release, I was thoroughly in the mindset that the good this game does should severely outweighed the bad we had seen at that point. Then it came out. Needless to say, it was far from what I was hoping for. A year later and I still don't think it's anywhere near the levels of straight up hate it brought up from a number of people (and I still like it quite a bit more than LW) but I'd be lying to myself if I could ever call it good. There are some parts I did end up liking, but quite a few more that I didn't. The boost is everything that critics of it have been blasting it for. The story has about as much depth, personality, and fake humor as the last few terrible showings in this area. That new graphical engine isn't even utilized to it's fullest potential with the levels on display. The levels and gameplay themselves are sparsely ever fun and, even more rarely, ever engaging. The controls are stiff (seeming to have been directly ripped from LW of all things). Classic Sonic's segments are complete trash (which is especially damning after Mania), and the Avatar isn't very well thought out as both a story and game idea. It's a mediocre product riddled with basic game design mistakes, lack of actual depth, and generally didn't do this franchise any favors at the end of the day. Something that really can't be understated after how much of a success Mania was. I know bringing up Mania in anything Forces related is... quite frankly beating a long worn horse skeleton at this point, but I feel this needs to be said. 2D vs 3D, Story vs. the lack thereof, happy and bright colors vs. serious and more realistic tones, Modern vs. Classic... all that be damned. Mania simply has the heart and effort behind it. Forces, on the flip side, doesn't. That, above everything else, is why one succeed over the other in my eyes. While I still retain that there's more in Forces that I want to see continued and improved upon over Mania, Mania simply was the better product by a large margin. To this day, I can still pick up Mania for a little session of the handful of zones I actually enjoy in it. I can't say the same with Forces. I've logged hundreds of hours into Generations, Unleashed, and even Colors and the fact that I can't even say I've put in a dozen into Forces is very telling. I'm not crazy about Mania or any of the Classic titles honestly but my Steam version of it alone already doubles that time, let alone when you add in the Switch version. Coming from a guy like me, that's incredibly telling. Again, I can't stress enough how much I pray ST learns from this game and actually improves upon the many good ideas I believe it genuinely has while putting the heart into it that Mania clearly had. To me, the worst thing they can do now is turn and run away from everything in it with their tails between their legs... again. I know there's an argument to be made for that methodology, but I've had well over a year to think on it with quite a number of discussions to go along with it and there's one thing I still firmly believe in. You simply don't get better if you stop trying after a misstep. There's a lot of things in Forces that I can already see myself disliking the next title for not including/ going against. Take the ideas here, refine them. That's literally what 95% of other critically acclaimed series do. Also, retain your fucking talent ST and Sega. The team that made this game is barely even the one from Generations. Funny how a lot of the core team that made Unleashed, Colors, and Generations went on to work on games like Odyssey, FF15, and BotW... Though, at the end of it all, the lead up to this game was infinitely worse than any of the bad parts of the product itself. I'll just leave it at that.
  5. Wow, a lot more people are taking stock in the fact that WoL might actually have more cutscenes. On one hand I'm immensely happy that the want for such scenes is still going strong all over the place. Maybe Nintendo will actually hear and take note of it going forward.

    On the other hand, I still don't believe it. Just seems way to good to be true after Thursday. I'm with the people hoping it's there... just not going to expect it at this point. No way I'm going to put my hopes up again just for them to get dashed a second time for the exact same thing.


    that's what sonic games are for :v

    1. Dejimon11



      I'm gonna keep using this imagine from now.

    2. JosepHenry


      Oh the super optimism or the super negativism route. 

      Just be cautiously optimistic. Like when leaks come up.

    3. Strickerx5


      @Dejimon11 only when nintendo decides to stop making mario games and focus all of their efforts solely on F-Zero games will I *insert number one Disney Song from 2013 here*

    4. Dejimon11


      How is it like living in that glass house of yours Mr. Mod of a Sonic theme'd forum?

    5. Strickerx5


      fucken terrifying omg everyone tries goes to war over the same topics and Celestia keeps eating all the free popcorn in the lounge

      tho still, nintendo is terrible

      chibi robo > zelda

    6. Dejimon11


      You know I don't like Zelda right?

    7. Strickerx5


      how dare u

    8. JosepHenry


      That's why we cant have nice things

    9. Dejimon11


      How dare I have an opinion? Shocker 

    10. Strickerx5


      kids these days

      always wanting their plumbers over good stuff


  6. Seeing quite a number of people loving today's direct simply for World of Light and saying it's exactly what they wanted. A story mode...

    so who's gonna be the one to break it to them that it's just an over-glorified classic mode with stickers and that probably 99% of the story it does have we've already seen in the trailer. i dont have the heart

    1. TCB


      Dats cool

      Ain't gonna ruin my looking forward to playing said mode tho 

    2. JaidynReiman


      Its not even an over-glorified classic mode. Its an over-glorified event matches mode. The story is literally just the intro and maybe an ending and that's it. I'm still interested in it, though, it looks really good.

    3. JosepHenry


      It has some depth to it, you fight bosses, find stickers, do some puzzles, what I WANTED really, not what I expected.

    4. Strickerx5


      I'm literally watching one of my GroupMe chats fly by with post about how many things could happen in this mode in terms of story events. Shit is kinda sad to watch. I'd rather not stop them either as I barely even know the guys taking atm to begin with.

      Like they're literally expecting this to be adventure mode with cutscenes like SSE... fuck, sort of wish I still believed that was what we were getting. Instead of this grindy, rock paper scissors... thing

    5. Polkadi~♪


      shut up and let us dream, damnit


      i'm not ready to admit it

    6. Strickerx5


      oh shit someone told them

      they ain't too happy omg

    7. Wraith


      In the japanese direct they said there are no cutscenes in the mode lol


    8. Polkadi~♪




    9. KHCast


      This direct just was a bunch of teasing “coulda” things wasn’t it ha

    10. Strickerx5


      I 100% feel you Polk, I was right there with you. That whole intro just seemed perfect.

      and that discussion has literally done a 180... wow

    11. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      You're saving all your fallen comrades, who help you in their own unique ways (ala the Great Fox in space or Lapras in the ocean) to explore and complete the map, all to gather enough strength to fight the main villain again. Isn't that pretty good for a series based around a diverse roster of allstars?

    12. Strickerx5


      Not when you had brawl doing it with an actual showing and not some rng mess

    13. Wraith


      I don't care about story/singleplayer that much in Smash personally and didn't expect anything from this game so I'm surprised we got something like this at all.

    14. Strickerx5


      All I'm going to say is that, at least from what I've seen, there is a major difference between people's reactions to that trailer, thinking it was a new full-fledged story mode, and later finding out that it isn't.

      Like I get it, this is already a better single player option than what Wii U dished out but that really isn't saying much. Happy people can get enjoyment out of it but... damn if they weren't on to something much bigger with this. Hate to see a majority of it go to waste imo as Smash is really the only series you can do stuff like this with.

      Like, as far as modes go, at this point I'd rather have gotten Smash Run or something. At least that was just simple fun if they're really going down that route here.

    15. JosepHenry


      Ah yes, let's make cutscenes with 80 characters and make them interact equally. Asking for too much here. Sorry, but if you want something bigger then... Sorry, it was not happening.

    16. Forte-Metallix


      At least we got to hear Pit and Zelda speak again. And Sonic got one of his best character moments in years.

    17. Strickerx5


      @JosepHenryThe thing is it did happen. It's clearly a thing they can do.

      I'm not asking for the length of SSE here. Just... an actual story. This game is jam packed and I know that full and well but I'm sorry, that's not going to stop me from questioning things. Especially when they were brought up back with 4. Them coming so close this time around is what stings the most.

      @Forte-Metallixlittle did they realize that this is already a better game to me than botw or odyssey simply due to that fact

  7. You know, maybe that direct was good for something after. These memes are fucking fantastic.

    Post some of the best ones you've seen below. I would love a good laugh right now.

      Lion king was was gold along with snake one being on point 

    4. Failinhearts


      Shameless plug, I know.


    5. Ellipsis-Ultima


      I lost it at the double boost and falcon ones

  8. Just remember everyone.

    this is still basically a smash 4 port


    1. Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      If the lack of story mode is true......


      I don't even have the strength to correct you. 

    2. Diogenes


      this is just a smash 64 port with a lot of updates

    3. Zaysho


      But then


      where the fuck are the trophies

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      And Zay wins with the fresh prince reference

    5. Celestia


      When you think about it every video game is just a port of Pong

  9. I still can’t get over how hype that vocal theme is. The way that whole opening scene goes and how it kicks in at just the perfect time... Then I realize how the mode itself isn’t going to actually have a story and I just get... super defeated.

    They were there. They had it. They just chose not go follow through.

  10. Poor Smash Run, forever stuck in the worst Smash.

    1. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      But Smash Run wasn't in the Wii U version of Smash 4. lol

    2. Nix


      Smash Run isn't in Brawl.

    3. Strickerx5


      Brawl apparently is still going to be the only game that actually uses its cast of characters to at least try and tell a story. I’ll always prefer that over 240p Smash 4 any day.

    4. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Fully agreed with Stricker. Brawl may have had it's tripping and junk, but it still had it's fantastic theme, the charm of SSE's story and boss fights and the best hype train period for Smash history overall. Plus, it's single player modes weren't all absolute garbage.

      Seriously, fuck Smash 4. The Wii U version, specifically.

  11. I did laugh at Kirby being the only one alive. Not even subtle with it anymore and I love it for that.

    1. Thigolf


      Yet not good enough for a newcomer

      Help us DLC

    2. Strickerx5


      i swear on meh mum if it’s waddle dee

    3. Thigolf


      We got a f'cking random ass Piranha Plant as a playable character, I will not have badmouthing an actual character

    4. Yeow


      I honestly want to say that was the best part of the entire Direct. I started cracking up so hard when Kirby was the only one who could get out of there.

      It would be like if Thanos in Infinity War sniped literally everybody but Steve Rogers with his finger snap

    5. Strickerx5


      @Thigoblin2 wrongs don’t make a right

    6. Nix


      I like how they have that little bit where Shulk sees everything coming, and then my boy gets shafted for Kirby anyways.

      Like, I saw Kirby getting away coming right from the get-go, but I'm still disappointed.

    7. Thigolf


      Bandana Dee was never wrong, though > : I

    8. Strickerx5


      and I hope he never will be :v

  12. You want to know what the literal worst thing is? They have one of the best fucking setups for one kick ass sequel to SE and they’re reducing it to a longer Classic mode with stickers 2.0... I’ve never seen so much potential just swoop by like that.

    They had the theme song and everything!

    1. KHCast


      Isn’t that even the cliff from brawl?

    2. Strickerx5


      god that makes it all even worse

    3. Nix


      It looks more like they made a campaign out of Event Matches.

      And I'll honestly take that over another SE dumpster fire.


    4. Strickerx5


      Looks more like they thought up this great idea, got really scared at how much hate SE gets on the daily, and cut back hard on it. Removing a lot of things people actually liked from it.

      Honestly, unless there’s more story to it, they Sonic Teamed this up real good.

  13. ... at least nothing from Arms made it in...

    1. KHCast


      Mii costumes and assist trophy 

    2. Dejimon11
    3. Strickerx5


      no KH

      as something that actually matters

    4. KHCast


      Still made it in though, so your initial statement is......




    5. Strickerx5


      well you can’t win them all

      if this fucking day is any indication

    6. KHCast


      Saying that made me loose my satisfaction in finally owning a mod. I h8 u

    7. Strickerx5
    8. Dejimon11


      I own Stricker all the time so this is nothing special 

    9. Strickerx5


      oh deji plz

      u already got another Mario character 

      ya don’t need to hurt me more

    10. Dejimon11


      But it's not the one I wanted. 

    11. Strickerx5


      U. GOT. ANOTHER. 1.

    12. Dejimon11


      And your point? That's like saying "Hey I want a bacon cheese burger" and they gave me a a chicken burger. Yeah I got a burger but it's not what I specifically asked for. 

    13. KHCast


      Meanwhile stricker is still waiting for his slice of bread 

      I’m just adding fire at this point 

    14. Dejimon11


      So would that make it burnt toast? 

    15. Strickerx5


      Chicken burgers r fucking great, what r u on mate

      meanwhile I’m over here starving and would’ve gladly taken the mustard packets that should’ve come with the KI hot dog I ordered

      KH is on point today

    16. Yeow


      this sexual tension is immense

      when do you two start holding hands

    17. Dejimon11


      Nep would kill me

    18. Strickerx5


      ... I’m just going to go play Forza 4 now

      again, fuck nintendo, k bye

  14. ...Why didn’t they save KR or Simon for this? Like, there was so much hype in the other directs that could’ve easily been saved for this...

    did they really think Ken, yet another Pokémon, and yet another Mario character that literally should’ve been an item was enough?

  15. Hate to say it... but that was... really fucking disappointing. Still hyped for the game more than anything else this year but... damn that knocked the wind right out of my sails.

    a fucking plant... i actually would’ve taken another fe character wow

    1. LongcrierCat


      Yeah no. I'm not buying this game I guess now. 

      Unless that DLC is something really special, this just knocked out all of the reason for me to play the game. 

    2. Dejimon11



      I TOLD YOU

    3. Lord-Dreamerz


      Neh. I'll take a goofy plant as a joke character over yet another boring as hell FE character any day of the week.
