  2. Space Jam 2 is the best HBO Max commercial with a great soundtrack.

    and honestly, that's all I was looking for with this lol

    1. Strickerx5


      Tho tbh, if I didn't grow up with the original and have nostalgia for it like no one's business... this is easily the far better movie for what it's worth.

    2. VisionaryofSUPER


      I dont know why Twitter is using the commercial aspect to berate the movie. Its not like it was being subtle about it.

      I loved the madmax part, but the rest is one of those really, really funny ads.

  3. Gonna go ahead and pull from what I said here a while back. There's quite a bit to dislike about the EGS. Though, I think the major gripes can be boiled down to 3 key reasons. 1, It lacks a lot of features that even small storefronts offer (let alone steam). 2, Epic likes to buy exclusives for their store, limiting purchase options for consumers. 3, Tencent owns a large stake in the company which has led people to worry about Chinese spyware (nothing of which has ever been found mind you). Some also dislike it for simply being another launcher that's not Steam and they see that as, to try and make this sound less ridiculous than it really is, a needless complication when starting games. Now, with all that being said (and personally speaking), I do find the amount of hate the store gets to be pretty ridiculous at times. Personally, a game being on there exclusively will never directly effect my decision to buy it. I don't use a lot of Steam's extra features so as long as the actual game is good, I couldn't care less what icon I have to click on in order to start it up. Also, I do believe that there's often a lot of hyperbole and double standards that go on with these discussions. Mainly revolving around how people will, rightfully, give Epic a good beaten but, at the same time, often completely ignore all the shit Valve does. Like, no one likes to ever bring up how much strong arming Valve did with Steam when it first showed up way back when. At the end of the day, they're both companies who don't care about you so I often find people holding Steam up in the PC community as this holy thing to be really silly. Like, it's good and I love it too, but really. So when it comes to Colors being on the EGS, it’s hard for me to care. What I do care about is the actual port itself and how that's shaping up. Cause, real talk, if Sega was releasing this on Steam I still wouldn't be thinking about buying it. Steam isn't going to make those loading hitches and poor lighting go away.
  4. Honestly, I'm sort of baffled with this Switch news. Sort of reads like a joke made at the Switch's expense. "The thing can't even play a Wii game at 60fps", like, come on now. Though, tbf this probably really is a pure optimization and time issue. With the feats the Switch has managed before, I don't see a real reason why they couldn't get this up to 60fps on there. Especially with how poor the game itself already looks. Though, I do get it from a business standpoint. Made the mistake earlier of reading the twitter responses to this news and it's clear what Sega sees here. A large portion of Switch owners don't care about fps. Hell, a large group of them defend shit like this siting that they're just happy it's on the thing at all or "the original ran at 30 and that was just fine". I'm not going to go into the direct gameplay benefits higher fps brings here (because that shit is common knowledge to most and is something that even Microsoft and Sony are getting behind now), but there still seems to be a sizeable audience with the Switch that simply isn't there yet. When that big of a portion of your consumer base doesn't know enough/ care about this sort of stuff... why put in the effort I guess.
  5. I think the general reviews that I’ve seen for Black Widow were spot on. A decent movie that was suppose to come out last year but really should’ve came out 5 years ago. It simply has little to no actual baring on the current MCU and some weight is taken off because of that.

    1. Sapphirine Wind

      Sapphirine Wind

      That's actually why I wasn't too excited about it. Seems like I can skip it and not miss too much.

    2. Jango


      I'm torrenting that shit because no way I'm paying extra 70 bucks to watch it (the monthly subscribe here is 27,90 bucks), Disney can fuck the hell out. This is getting worse than the videogame industry.

    3. Soniman


      Yeah it was very alright I don't have strong feelings on it. Taskmaster was botched to hell though 

    4. mayday2592


      After a second viewing, I gotta agree. Still not over how they interpreted Taskmaster. He's gone from being a crude jerk that walks the line between villain and hero,  moreso than Deadpool recently, to an emotionless automaton-like figure who barely speaks a word and has zero personality. Kinda funny that UMVC3 pulled him off so much better.

    5. Baldymcnosehair1999


      I thought it was ok, but they BOTCHED taskmaster compared to the comics.

    6. Baldymcnosehair1999


      Loved red guardian thou. One of the MCU's best comic relief.

  6. If HBO Max is basically WarnerMedia's streaming platform... how did the new Animaniacs show get onto Hulu?

    1. Zaysho


      Think Animaniacs' deal was inked years ago. I remember hearing about the reboot since maybe 2018? And I think that was even just before DC's thing launched.

    2. Supah Berry

      Note the irony of a WB show being locked inside a Disney owned prison. Hulu already signed them up for two seasons, so don't expect any platform jumping for a while

    3. Dejimon11


      Yeah the reboot was announced somewhere between 2016-2017 so it was just lack of foresight on their part. This is why the tiny toon’s reboot is going to be on HBO Max

    4. Baldymcnosehair1999


      Wait... tiny toons reboot? Is steven spielberg working on it?

  7. We don't do request topics here.
  8. Encanto just got a trailer:

    Looks promising. Always excited to hear more work from Lin-Manuel.

  9. *Nintendo announces new Switch model*: Oh...

    *Still the same internals so no actual performance enhancements*: welp, I sleep

    1. Wraith




    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Really bad decision on Nintendo’s part imo. Built in LAN, OLED and extra space is nice and all but those weren’t what was holding the Switch back.

    3. Diogenes


      not feeling any pressure to buy the same console twice is fine with me tbh

    4. Dejimon11


      I’m not mad just disappointed.

  10. y'all thought you could get away with not posting this here today

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      I knew what this was going to be before I opened the post and I still clicked.

      Also man, I'm pretty sure Splinter and Michelangelo are the only characters in this song that even live in America.

      The dude with the purple collar and suit looks like a jo jo character. What show is he from?

  11. Nero could still make it into Smash.

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Not likely for Smash 5 though.

    2. Soniman


      Keep that enthusiam

    3. Mr. Ion

      Mr. Ion

      I can't wait until the next fighter is revealed.
      It's gonna be Bubsy, I can really feel it this time!
      And I can't wait for a Mii fighter from the hit 1982 disaster, ET: The Extraterrestrial: The Game!
      If it's another sword fighter, even if they're not from Fire Emblem, I will leave this series. Even if they are a valuable addition to the game, it is completely terrible to have any character with a sword or from an anime game.

      (I'm being sarcastic sword fighters are fine)

    4. Zaysho


      Yeah that'd be great


      ...we're not talking about the same Nero, are we

    5. Strickerx5



      but now we are

      Nero for Smash.

    6. Wraith


      Demon fingers crossed 

    7. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Sigh.....I just want Phoenix Wright. I want to know the same joy that @Zaysho got when his girls got in.

    8. Dejimon11


      Wait hold up @Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon you literally predicted Sephiroth. You got that got that feeling. 

    9. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Sephiroth was my Number 2 most wanted pick though. Zaysho got his top pick. I really want to have that feeling.

      It's come close with me getting Ridley, Daisy, and Joker, but no. I really want the feeling of Phoenix Wright getting in.

    10. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      But yeah, it was awesome predicting Sephiroth.

    11. Zaysho


      I just gave up after Byleth came out and tried to enjoy the ride. I didn't expect Sakurai to drop me off at the greatest stop along the way.

  12. Wonder if Sonic games will ever utilize motion blur to its fullest potential. The look in feel of these games in particular would benefit greatly from it.

    Though, it is admittedly a feat that not many games can pull off which is why motion blur in general often gets a bad rap. When applied correctly, shit is great.

    1. charmsb


      I mean, it looks great, sure, but the reason motion blur gets a bad rep is because it hinders your ability to see things clearly. And it hasn't changed that here, especially in the 2d sections. If this motion blur was applied to games I would still turn it off.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Sure it's absolutely stellar to look at, but to play that, I don't how to make it work. Because of the importance of surroundings when you go so fast, the last thing you'd want is graphics that hinder your sight. The only blur that should be there is that Blue Blur in front of the camera.

    3. Jango


      Never because ST would never do it correctly

    4. Celestia


      To be honest it never looks good to me. And sometimes even makes my eyes hurt (see: here, probably not helped by the speed lol). Wouldn't be against it as long as you could turn it off tho'.

    5. Wraith


      It works as a carefully considered flourish but beyond that it has no place in a fast paced action game imo. Unleashed had enough problems wrt clarity without this.

    6. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      I'm gonna have to agree with @Celestia on this. Motion blur often tends to be much more trouble than its worth.

    7. Strickerx5


      Honestly, I can't say that the motion blur applied here effected me in the same way it seems to have for you all. I could still easily make out enemies and objects on screen, even in the 2D section. Maybe this is mostly due to my mind already knowing this level due to the... almost unhealthy amount of time I've spent on Unleashed in general but I really can't say that it makes obstacles harder to see (especially due to the already present speed). If anything, I find it easier to parse where Sonic is at any given time.

      Though keep in mind that I am absolutely not saying this should be a mandatory thing as, with any implementation of motion blur, it should be an option in the menus. Though personally, I would love to see something like this applied in real time in the future as I just think it looks stunning.

  13. I'm just happy we're finally getting Sakurai out of the Smash mines again soon... hopefully

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Or are we!? Smash 6 coming soooooon.....

    2. Soniman


      What else is he gonna do?

    3. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Kid Icarus Uprising 2 or a new F-Zero game maybe.

    4. Strickerx5


      Literally anything other than Smash for a bit would be nice.

      Or hell, a long vacation. Guy deserves that... or needs it at this point.

    5. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Let him have a good rest, working on Smash almost non-stop since Brawl (with Kid Icarus being the in between break) especially with the fans nagging for the past 10 years or so has not been healthy. His body needs it at this point.

      If he wants to do another game, then only if he wants to and if he is able to. Probably something new.

  14. So I wasn't watching the stream and was just getting a play by play on a work chat but honestly, I think the most impactful news from that stream I got was that the Tekken mii costume was a different character than the one that's now in the game. Cause I had no fucking clue and have really just tuned out of smash in general since "Tekken" came up lol.

    No disrespect to those why are hyped for him as I'm happy someone is getting a character they want but like yeah
