  1. It's sort of a shame how far Pokemon has fallen from my life these days. Like, a little less than a decade back, that shit use to be my life. Hell, watching the anime is one of my earliest memories as a kid.

    Nowadays, I can barely even bring myself to play the mainline games (and even that is probably going to change with Sword and Shield looking so meh). Even the latest anime news doesn't really excite me.

      Sorry to hear that. I don't enjoy Pokemon as much as I did when it first came out, but I still love the games and the show.

      That's been me arguably since Gen 4.  My interest in it is always off and on.  When I do get back into it, I'll become obsessed; but when I'm not I want nothing to do with it.

      But I don't think I'll ever forget when I first saw the commercials on TV, when I first got the game (along with Super Mario Land) and how many countless hours I spent on it and how it sparked so much imagination in me.

      Guess it's not too dissimilar to my relationship with The Simpsons.

      I still enjoy checking in on the show or playing older games (starting to look into some fan hacks), but my tastes have shifted and I was feeling pretty burned out when USUM were announced. Though I was a bit upset about the Pokemon Home/National Dex stuff initially, I've kind of just become indifferent to SwSh. Parts of it look cool, but it's not something I want to rush out and play like DP/HGSS/BW/SM were to me

      something something sonic comparasion

      Pokemon was a big part of my gaming life a good while before I got into Sonic, so its heartbreaking for me too. The last game that had me 'hooked' from start to finish even though it was kinda shallow compared to past games was XY due to the novelty of a fully 3D region, then I tried to get into ORAS but there was a long gap between starting it and eventually beating it, and after that...well I still haven't beaten Moon despite getting it on launch and initially intending to do so quickly to futher join in discussions on Gen 7..

  2. Gotta say, this was a pretty standard episode through and through. Wasn't bad by any means. In fact, I was actively wondering where things were going to go as it had a bit of a bracket thing going on. Was very surprised to see Octavia get a good role in this one too. The episode also had quite a number of fun moments to it as well like that whole gag with Starlight and her plant. The rest of the episode was just, rather tame all things considered. I can't really mark the episodes down for that but I guess I'm just at the point of, idk, expecting a bit more from these last few episodes? We're nearing the end here and not many of these episodes give off that feeling. Sure they're showing the characters setting up for their next/ final points in life but the episode plots themselves seem very trivial in comparison. Especially here considering that I think this is Starlight's last full on episode. Yet, it felt noticeably more by-the-books than most of her other ones. If you were to have asked me a year ago or something what a final season of this show would look like, I'd give you episodes that go all in for each character. Like an episode involving some big, huge sporting event including the Wonder Bolts for Rainbow. Twilight tagging along with Celestia and Luna on some big royal adventure. The Student Six getting sent on their own Friendship journey. Rarity holding some huge fashion event in Canterlot. You know, big event episodes that focus in on their characters and give them some form of celebration or the like. We really haven't had that many episodes this season like that (really only the CMCs and Royal Sisters). Instead, we're mostly getting plots like, well, this one. I don't know, it really isn't every day you see a show that has gone on for this long start to actually wrap things up in such a realistic way. There simply isn't that much to compare this all to. Most cartoons either get cut before the writers can give it a proper ending, go on for too long and sort of just fizzle out at some point with no real ending, or have one final episode where everything just gets wrapped up there. I can't think of many shows that actually spend the majority of their last season in this sort of final mood. It's sort of weird and is kind of bringing the mood down a bit ya know? Lol, like those final few days at summer camp or something. Everyone knows we're nearing the end, we're starting to pack stuff up, but we're still trying to squeeze in a few more activities before then. With us running down into the final month here, that air of finality seems to be holding strong over this one for me. But anyways, enough doom and gloom bs from me lol. Overall, this was a pretty down the line episode.
  3. One of the worst things a developer/ publisher can ever do is lose the source code of a game imo. Like, anything past the early 2000s is simply an act of absolute incompetence on the part of just about everyone involved.

    Like, millions of dollars and multiple years thrown into something. Yet no one thought of just spending a day or two to go around the office and back shit up?

  4. Alright, so for those of you who took part in the SSMB Musical Spectacular this year, I just sent out the awards.

    Please lmk if you participated and didn't receive one. I'll get ya taken care of as soon as possible.

    Thanks again to everyone who voted!

    1. PaulyBFromDa303


      It's a good question whether I participated or not. I didn't vote on anything, but I was there, and I did have something thrown in last minute lol.

    2. Solister



      Must say for a while I thought we weren't going to receive one as the project seemed to ran out of order in its final steps. Good everything ran well and as promised.

      *Now my musical discussions topics will have a bit more authority.*

  5. Ok, so they basically took a mobile game/ format and added in barebones rpg elements with Wii Fit.

    Overall, not terrible. Actually looks decent for what it is. Very smart of them to not include it in last week’s direct too lol.

    The people in the video sound like they’re one wrong Starbucks order away from snapping though.

      uhhh context...?

      I think this looks...really fun, actually. I might just pick it up if the reviews for it are good.

    6. Speederino


      I’ve wanted a Wii Fit successor so uh...huh. I’m not not interested. I don’t know where the fuck I’d actually put the *sigh* Ring-con though.

  6. Arlo Senpai, I-I um... w-what are you trying to do to me here

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Stricker-chan~... Don’t you want more... Kid Icarus~?

    2. Zaysho


      Wouldn't this require Nintendo to unchain him from the basement where they have him making Smash Bros

    3. SupahBerry


      I ship Pony X Puppet for life

    4. Ferno


      t-this isn't the kind of uprising i expected to witness tonight..

  7. Pretty entertaining episode imo. Got a kick out of Rarity's shenanigans after realizing how much she has enjoyed Spike's company after all this time. Also found Spike and Gabby's friendship to be pretty damn cute as it was built off of a common interest and simply grew from there. The whole episode sort of had this form of love-triangle trope running through it and with Spike's long running thing with Rarity since season 1, I simply found the whole thing to be quite hilarious. Also loved the semi-return of the drama couch gag from Lesson Zero. As far as bad things... eh well, can't really say I have any honestly. Sort of just feel like the episode was a fun little idea that didn't really go above and beyond in any scene. A middling ride throughout with more little funny moments than not. So yeah, overall a pretty decent and fun episode. Also, side note, is it just me or did Tabitha dip into Luna territory with her VA work quite a number of times in this one? As in Rarity sounded like Luna verily often here. I mean, I realize she plays the two characters with what is pretty much the same tone (really only pitching things down for Luna) but it was strangely more noticeable to me here. Maybe all the heightened drama Rarity was outputting is what caused it, idk.
  8. To this day I still don’t understand how Nintendo actually made Smash online worse than it was in 4.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer



      well the answer was in the question wasnt it

    2. Wraith


      Any game that has lobbies is better than smash 4 online 

    3. Tails spin

      I'm glad I have Mario Maker 2, SNES and NES online, and Marvel Ultimate alliance 3 to take advantage of online. Smash Ultimate online is horrible

    4. Perkilator


      Well, I don’t have Switch online (yet), but I’ve seen online matches in motion, so…(shrugs)

  9. *Watches Arlo’s Direct discussion video*

    Ya know, I legitimately feel bad for Arlo sometimes. It feels like he consistently has to walk on eggshells whenever he airs any sort of disappointment or negativity against Nintendo because he knows a lot of people simply can’t take that. He beats around the bush every time he even hints at not liking something.

    And looking at those dislikes coming in, apparently that’s not even enough for a lot of them.

      wanna get pissed at a nintendo fan who just wants what pleases him or else he throws a fit? Watch PKSparks.

  10. Next Level is doing some amazing things with LM3. Those animations and lighting man, beautiful.

  11. Fs in the chat for Smash Run officially.

    Yet another thing that’s going to be stuck on the 3DS for the foreseeable future.

      y do you hate good things

    3. Dejimon11


      Please step out of that glass house of yours. 

    4. Strickerx5


      no man real talk

      Smash Run was like the sequel of Air Ride we never got.

      Give it a proper online mode and dear lord.

      I know it's not for everyone but damn, I could easily see that alone literally doubling my play time.

      I love smash run. But I want it to stay on the 3ds. It's meant to be smash lite on the go. 

    7. Strickerx5


      @Zaysho i want them to succeed. I really do

      they just keep fighting back and i dont know why

      @Tails spinb-but the whole point of the Switch is... um


  12. Oh hey, I guess you are kinda cool Nintendo

  13. Solid direct imo. Though the again, definitely didn’t have high hopes for it either so yeah.

  14. According to the show staff (Ian Jones-Quartey on a podcast and Sugar on a TVLine interview), this isn't the end of the series. To quote Ian specifically from the SU Podcast: Sugar's quote from TVLine reads similarly but they really didn't have the best sourcing in the article so I'll leave y'all to decide whether it's something to go off of. So basically, while no one at CN proper has really come out and confirmed anything, I don't think it's wrong to assume there's going to be more in the future (however gd long it'll be till then). There are quite a number of unanswered questions and considering that CN seems to like this show as sort of a rep boost more than anything (makes them look real good come things like comic-con and stuff), all I'll say is that it'd be a very dramatic turn for them to end things off here. Hell, wouldn't be surprised if they even recoup the cost of the several episodes they produce a year from the soundtracks alone. Though as for a movie, gotta say I enjoyed the hell out of it. It definitely had some slower moments and odd choices that I probably wouldn't have gone with (basically repeating the character arcs of the Crystal Gems was meh) but most of them really did work out for it in the end. Led to some very touching moments and makes the movie completely work as a bridge between what has happened and the future. Also, dear lord that music. I know what I'm listening to during the car ride to work tomorrow. As for a short blurb on the more spoilery stuff And as a side note, the diamonds were hilarious in this lol So yeah, overall I greatly enjoyed that. Wasn't perfect, probably wasn't even the best thing to some from the series, but damn if I didn't have a great time watching it. The multitude of great moments annihilated the bad ones imo. Enough so that this honestly gets a high recommendation from me. Pretty sure he was only on for the soundtrack (instrumental and lyric work). Don't think it was ever confirmed he'd be voicing someone.
