  1. Where's my third Sonic Storybook game SEGA come on you ported Lost World to PC you got no excuse for any business decision you make.

      I always wanted a Greek mythology Sonic storybook game tbh

      i legit want sonic and the bible

       

  2. Holy crap that The Suicide Squad Roll Call got me hyped up as hell.

    I hope Ratcatcher is DC's Ghost (from Ant-Man and the Wasp) counterpart in that they're male villains in the comics but they got a female version in the films. I loved Ghost, one of my MCU's top favourite antagonists.

      And Harley Quinn's new costume is god damn amazing.

  3. So uh I kind of lost track of the show after a few episodes but apparently people didn't like Star vs. The Forces of Evil's ending? Why? What went wrong?

      I watched it all a couple months back. Didn’t personally see what the rage was all about. Like the ending wasn’t entirely satisfying, but nothing to go “this show sucks” over

      I've never heard of this program before so Googled it and now I finally know what the second face is in the Cal Arts meme.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer

      I can't speak personally but from what I've heard, an insulting as hell finale coming after two lackluster seasons that throws away the charm of Season 1 and 2 for a bunch of relationship drama, and turning Star into a garbage asshole of a person.

    5. Spin Attaxx

      Spin Attaxx

      It's one of those endings where, if you watch it in a vacuum divorced from the rest of the series, it's not the worst thing ever, but when you stop and think about the context of the rest of the series, it has a bunch of unintentionally ugly implications (you know how people joked about Sonic killing people with that blackout in the movie? Think that, but this time it's intentional, and we see actual victims).

      Though beyond that, it also does a couple of things that play into this unintentional "white saviour" narrative that I've realised kinda hangs over the series ever since it decided it wanted to be Baby's First Game of Thones instead of a lighthearted dimension-hopping comedy.

      EDIT: And as Ryan said, it's also the culmination of issues that are present since the start of the third season, and are largely unaddressed even by the fourth.

      I don't get why people are so baffled. Exclusive deals like this have been in games since the 90s. Earthworm Jim had exclusive Sega content, The PS1 Mortal Kombat games had content not on the N64 versions, the Xbox 360 had exclusive Call of Duty stuff, this is all part of competition, companies trying to give us reasons to get their console.

    3. Thigolf

      Doesn't make it less shitty, dude.

    4. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      I think he's wondering what has changed now for people to actually start complaining, because this has been the first major example i see for this case. Hell, only a few years ago everyone was a-ok with Ubisoft having Star Fox content for the Switch version of Starlink and no deal for the other versions.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Not to mention that is one of the most egregious examples ever. If you're dismissing that just because "it's the way it's always been", you're being wilfully ignorant and dismissive.

    6. KHCast

      KHCast

      It was always shitty. It was shitty with star link, it was shitty with Sonic & sega all stars, and it’s shitty now.

      but good god, I hate that I was right in thinking there’d be more sectioned off in this game 

    7. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Lol, fuck off Square and Sony

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @KHCast I forgot about that! I could accept Banjo/Avatars on 360 and Miis on Wii because of first party rights, but having several SEGA brands exclusive to PC was lame. Although IIRC it was a much later release and SEGA simply weren't interested in the going through the associated costs of updating all the other platforms.

    9. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      That and some of the added characters (2 from Total War, one from Company of Heroes and one from Football Manager) had more presence (if not complete) on the PC market. Although in that case it could be Sumo just got told the exclusitivity beforehand and decided to pick and choose themed racers.

    10. pppp

      pppp

      @Thigolf  Why is it shitty? So basically you're saying Nintendo is shitty for doing that Wii U exclusivity deal with SEGA a few years back. Are they also shitty for putting their games only on the Switch? In the entertainment industry if you have no exclusive content you're nothing dude, why would I spend money on something, be it a console, a streaming service or whatever if there's nothing it offeres that others don't ?

      Was SEGA shitty for not putting Sonic 2 on the SNES as well?

    11. KHCast

      KHCast

      @Blue Blood Even in those cases, it still was a case of devaluing the PlayStation version and charging the same amount for it. Still shitty even if it “makes sense” given the characters. Hell, having different content in the same game based on different consoles is still in itself a ridiculously dumb idea to me, since it essentially tries to FOMO us and make us feel bad for not getting the other “better” version(s)

       

      @pppp that’s a lotta false equivalences you’re making 

      “In the entertainment industry if you have no exclusive content you're nothing dude” 

      In the case of video games, that’s why first party exclusives are a thing 

      “Was SEGA shitty for not putting Sonic 2 on the SNES as well?”

       

      LOL WHAT? 

    12. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      If a rich as fuck company shoves money up the ass of another company to keep content from other platforms, it's shitty, yes.

      Especially if the former rich as fuck as company has plenty of studios and cash to make their own content anyway. Noone is mad that Sony made games are Sony platform exclusives. People are mad that Sony and Square gatekeep their third party shit. Sony gets sales. Square gets cash. The consumer gets NOTHING out of this, other than fucked over.

      So basically you're saying Nintendo is shitty for doing that Wii U exclusivity deal with SEGA a few years back.

      Thinks back to how RoL literally had one leg in the grave coming out the gate as they had to port the game down from hardware they already had working builds for. Not to mention how the series in general had next to no footing tech wise this generation largely due to being stuck on that gen for another 3 years...

      ... I mean to be fair, it was largely Sega being stupid there too.

  5. So I JUST learned that Silent Hill Homecoming was made by Double Helix... The same studio that made the amazing Killer Instinct reboot for the Xbox One (which Iron Galaxy continued developing from S2 onwards).

    ... How. 

    1. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      There was originally a LOT of skepticism over Killer Instinct because of Double Helix's prior work, to the point it's honestly throwing me for a loop to suddenly see this from the reverse angle now.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Would you really be surprised if it’s probably because Konami was being fucking Konami and meddling and putting pressure on DH resulting in what we ended up getting?

  6. The biggest part of Spider-Man being exclusive to Playstation means that he'll do jackshit in the story lmao.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Gee that's not blatant advertisment for the (indefinitely better) PS Spider Man games at all

  7. Holy shit Yuki Naka and Naoto Ohshima

      Looks a bit rough but reminds me of Billy Hatcher a bit.

      PC the Hedgehog

      Is this the first time Naka and Oshima have worked together since...what, Sonic Adventure?

      What's more, is this the first time Square-Enix has ever done a platformer?

  8. So uhhh i wanna get into danganronpa

    Should I watch the anime as an entry point thing?

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Ehhhh....

      The anime is a simple way to understand the plot of the first game, but it will ruin the experience for you. There isn't enough time to develop many of the characters, so if they die... they don't make as much of an impression on you as the game would.

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I do recommend playing the games but I also recommend playing the games in Japanese because the localization isn't great.

      I will forever stick to saying that Super High School Level is more iconic than "Ultimate" for example and some things I just find super weird in it in general like the changing of names for some weird reason. This kind of localization isn't acceptable when Persona 4 did it faithfully.

      You can watch the anime yeah where it has a better localization but it goes by fast and you don't get to learn about the characters as much as you would in the games due to the games having free time events. Its up to you if you how you spend your time ultimately.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Please just play the first game, it’s on PS4, Vita, PC, and both IOS/Android.

      The anime is a very bare basic adaption, and rushes to fit everything into the episodes they got, meaning a lot of daily life is cut entirely, leaving most of the cast painfully underdeveloped.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Duplicate post, ignore

    5. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      What people said, play DR1 or at the very least watch a playthrough of a game. The anime is pretty barebones.

      Also a word of caution - DR3 anime (not to be confused with DRv3 the game, those are different things) is considered to be bad, so watch at your own risk

      crow, you know this is an english speaking forum, right?

       

      The best way to enjoy a series is through it's source. So yes, play the games. They go for crazy cheap during Steam sales.

    7. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

       Play the games sure. 

      Just make sure to get them on sale and cheap when you can.

      They're better in english though. Sure it's localization may not be as great as Ace Attorney's, but it's still the better way to play them.

    8. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Just keep in mind the games are going to be delisted from stores as the publishing rights for the games are being changed. So if you wanna nab Dangan before it disappears for a tad bit, best get them now.

    9. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Oh FUCK RIGHT they're getting delisted for a while.

      Okay I'll try the first game and see what's up. Thanks everyone.

  9. So I saw a Youtube comment mentioning that Metroid Prime's use of the scan visor and method of storytelling is one of the precursors of the "environmental storytelling" that games like Dark Souls use and...

    Yeah... Sounds accurate to me? Like, Dark Souls has the same type of storytelling as Metroid Prime doesn't it?

  10. god beerus and whis are such a good addition to dragon ball imo

  11. It was never mentioned what happened to Navi after Majora's Mask right?

    1. FReaK

      FReaK

      didn't navi already leave after oot? it was a different fairy in mm, tatl in the english version.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The implication is that at the start of MM Link is searching for Navi before he gets jumped by Skull Kid. After that, the plot threads of what Link was doing at the start of the game and Navi's disappearance are never brought up again.

  13. I really expected Johnny to give Black Knight a negative review but I'm surprised and happy with what he thinks about it. 

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I think he was very fair. The game has LOTS of bad traits, but several really good ones too. Ultimately, I think the bad wins out, but eh.

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      The gameplay is definitely the worst part of the game (which is kind of the most important thing but eh...) but everything else makes it up so much for me that it's still one of my favorite Sonic games. 

  14. Oh crap Tangle and Whisper crossing over to a game.

    Took them long enough. Wonder if the next Sonic game will have IDW stuff on it.

      Like, I'm guessing Speed Battle, but I googled it and didn't find anything.

      @Pelvic WOO! engine Neither Dash nor Speed Battle use voice clips.

      E-122-Psi

      In fairness Sally had her turn used in SEGA marketing in the mid 90s, just stuff like spin off games was a less lax process those days (they sure did TRY though, just they never got off the ground).

      Also at this point I can see why characters like Sticks, Tangle and Whisper have been considered more compatible with this sort of marketing, not just because their works are the fresh new 'hot topic', but because they're more easy to translate. They all have one consistent design and characterisation and it's largely flexible with the games universe. You don't lose a ton of important lore and character building slapping Sticks in her Boom design in the games world for example.

      With Sally and the other Freedom Fighters, they've went through an excessive amount of retools and development. It's WAY easier to alienate actual fans of the characters by just picking one interpretation as the 'official' one and sticking them in.

  15. I had NO clue that they patched in Dingodile's losing quote in N-Sane Trilogy.

    God damn that's awesome. Always loved that quote.

  16. Holy shit Johnny's re-reviewing Black Knight next YES I'M SO HAPPY

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Honestly, i'm pretty stocked for seeing the SGB old videos revisited and given more detailed reviews that fit in with Johnny's current style. Hell, Resident Evil 5 also fits that, so we'll see that too soon enough.

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      That, stuff like Mortal Kombat, Metroid Prime and Other M. There's a lot of stuff that could be really good being done with Modern Johnny

  17. The hell do you mean that god damn Avatar is coming to SMITE.

      Quarantine's boggling my time awareness, I'm lost.

  19. Timed exclusives are god dang idiotic but I'm surprised Oddworld and Ghostwire are coming to Xbox. I would've expected them to be PS exclusives. I'm glad.

    Same with Solar Ash (god that game looks SO good).

    1. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Oddworld has been on Xbox ever since Xbox has been around, even being exclusive with Munch for quite a while, so I'd be more surprised if it wasn't coming.

      It being timed exclusive really sucks though.

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Yeah you're right, my mind was stuck with the first two Oddworld games being some classic PS1 titles. 

  20. Seeing Matt McMuscles' video on Earthworm Jim 3D just made me think that I'm honestly surprised Jim hasn't gotten a comeback these last few years.

      virtually each company that got their hands on the ip tried to get a new game made, only for it to be cancelled each time (there was a psp EWJ game in development that arguably got the closest to completion, there's some screenshots of it out in the wild). i largely chalk it up to severe mismanagement of the ip across multiple parties; case in point, the current rightsholders are making a new game that's exclusive to the impressively-miscalculated new intellivision console that's in development.

      I don't know why you have an issue calling these issues politics. They Just are. They objectively are politics, and that doesn't undermine them one bit.

    4. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Politics:

      2nd definition. "Activities aimed at improving someone's status or increasing power within an organization."

      In this case, stopping the senseless murder of black people by the police or improving the lives of the black community in general.

      Normally, I'd be deeply suspicious when a brand makes a statement like this. But considering they seem to be giving money to charity, this one sounds genuine compared to others.

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      It’s not political to say “hey, black people should be treated regularly”, as that implies there’s an argument to make for the opposite as opposed to it being a open and closed case. Politics have reasonable opposing arguments to reasonably discuss. Human rights is not one of them cause there’s no “argument” to make. It’s like saying gays wanting equality is “political”. Why do you think people make fun of gamers that whine about inclusion as “making a game political”? Tying me being black to that being an inherent political subject is fucking stupid 

      @DanJ86 Blacks arent a organization, we’re a community. Republicans and democrats are organizations. A charity, is an organization. Someone’s race, or sexuality, is not an organization 

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Yeah, dude, you're describing politics. How else would you define those things? The way that society works... that's politics. It doesn't matter what the arguments are.

    I've heard horrors about it, but is it THAT bad or is it stuff that only fans would... Er... "Care" about?

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      No, i can tell you it is that bad. The only savageble change is the new set of voice actors, and i know some fans don't like even those.

      If possible, follow this guide (it's possible there is a more updated version of it, keep looking if you're into it):
