  1. So...how much that's coming out in 2016 is actually worth looking forward to?

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Ninjago Season 7.

      Um there's like, a ton of rad things coming out in this year, well in my personal taste anyways. just off the top of my head, on the game side i'm excited for, Uncharted 4, Mirror's Edge, Doom, Persona 5, new Zelda (hopefully?) Ratchet and Clank. On movies i'm excited for, Cloverfield, BvS, Captain America Civil War, The Jungle Book, The Nice Guys, X-Men, new Star Trek, Star Wars: Rogue One, Suicide Squad, Kubo and the Two Strings, and a bunch of other stuff

      and new, Sonic..........

      Depends greatly on whatever tastes you have, whether it be for films or games or books or whatever. What are you interested in?

    5. Speederino

      Speederino

      There's also Yooka-Laylee, though I'm getting the feeling that's going to be pushed to 2017.

    6. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      Salt and Sanctuary, Enter the Gungeon, Dark Souls 3, Uncharted 4, Star Fox Zero (fingers crossed), Zelda U (probably), Doom, off the top of my head

  2. I forgot how awful the moon child sections in Majora's Mask are.

    1. T-Min

      T-Min

      I ran out of Bombchus in the Twinmold dungeon and I actually have to start the whole thing over.

      Nintendo usually isn't this...LAZY.

      Then again, considering the kinds of games they're releasing this year, maybe it's to be expected.

    2. Wraith

      Wraith

      Majora's Mask was something they did in a year, so some sections are much rougher than they would be otherwise.

  3. Holy crap the Twinmold fight in MM3D is ridiculously unintuitive.

  4. I love how most Zootopia fanart is Nick/Judy shipping.

    1. T-Min

      HOLY-

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      To be fair though, what piece of media these days doesn't have their main characters shipped up the ass?

    3. DarkLight

      DarkLight

      Because screw platonic relationships between main characters, shipping them romanitcally is so much easier! :U

      *romantically

  5. So wait, did Lena Dunham do something that people are mad about?

    1. T-Min

      T-Min

      ...wait.

      I just looked it up. Please don't answer that.

  6. May be some of my usual jump-the-gun neuroticism, but do you guys think that between Color Splash, Star Fox Zero, Federation Force, and TPHD, the Nintendo that actually gave something resembling a shit about the integrity of their core franchises is long dead?

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      I don't know what the shit TPHD has to do with those other three.

      And no. I think it's only the case when people focus on the franchises that aren't working and not the ones that are.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      Paper Mario isn't a core franchise, and even if you're referring to Mario in general, it's one spin-off compared to the still-very-high-quality main releases.

      TPHD is a stopgap release for Zelda Wii U. And I don't know how people are still going chicken little over Star Fox Zero especially since the latest footage showed off new, non-SF64ish locales and elements, other than people simply not liking the gyro controls.

    3. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      color splash could still be good if they fix what was wrong with sticker star, and it's a spinoff series anyway; core mario is doing fine. star fox zero looks fine to me, and it's not like the series was doing any better before it. federation force is not a game that I'm terribly interested in but it doesn't look terrible, and about the only reason it's an issue is that we really need a core metroid game to replace other M in our minds. and TPHD is just another slightly upgraded port, it's not exciting but it's also not guiding the future of the series, Zelda U is. so I don't see any reason to panic.

    4. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Those all have varying degrees on what's wrong with them

      Color Splash for being unfaithful to it's series and keeping the bad design choice, TPHD for being a very low-effort remaster that's advertised as being HD, MP:FF for being an okay-looking spinoff of the series released at the wrong time, and Star Fox... having motion controls?

      Only two of those apply to Nintendo not caring that much about them, so eh.

  7. Man, most things that have or are coming out in 2016 are already ass. This is a really shit year for media. It really is the 2006 tenth anniversary.

    (Zootopia is an exception of course)

    1. Boomer

      Boomer

      I don't know, a lot of stuff was delayed from last year to this year.

    2. Marcello

      Marcello

      Why? I can think of plenty of cool stuff.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Actually, I think it's been the opposite. Things like Kung Fu Panda 3 and Deadpool were great and the year only seems to go up hill from here.

    4. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      I mean, there's nothing that really sucks to me.

    5. Hyper Enesephus

      Hyper Enesephus

      I don't watch live action movies, so I can't comment on those, but between all the (hopefully good) animated films coming out, the upcoming Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted 4 for PS4, safe to say two new Sonic games (which might both turn out to be meh, but I'm optimistic), Sonic Boom season 2 and Rick and Morty season 3, I'd say there's good stuff all throughout 2016, at least for me.

    6. Joy

      Joy

      I got to see Inside Out at the cinema again this year. Technically cheating but hey!

  8. So...they're making a spiritual successor to Sticker Star.

    ...

    SO HOW'S PAPER JAM

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Actually heard it was pretty good. I almost bought it today but Gamestop was out of copies.

    2. RosaRosaRosalina

      RosaRosaRosalina

      paper jam is good

       

       

      color splash probably won't be the devil's hellspawn that everyone think it is but i'm literally stuck here being the only person to actually think that

    3. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Paper jam is a slight step back from dream team. But honestly it's a great m&l game and a great paper mario game

  9. Honestly, I'm REALLY glad that Zootopia is getting such astronomical acclaim and success. It deserves it, for one, but for another, it could really pave the way for more anthropomorphic media that might follow in its footsteps. I just really hope that it doesn't go the way of Frozen in terms of receiving distaste due to long-term overexposure.

    1. T-Min

      T-Min

      But with that said, Try Everything probably doesn't have the sheer staying power and ear worm-itude of Let It Go, so we may be safe there

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I just hope that morale about police gets through to the younger generation. Especially with the events in today's world, this movie couldn't have been more perfectly timed by Disney.

    3. Hyper Enesephus

      Hyper Enesephus

      I haven't seen Zootopia, but I'm sure there's no "Let it Go" in there, nor do I think it "subverts Disney princess tropes," so I don't think you have to worry about that. : P

    4. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Frozen and Zootopia are not at all similar in what their stories are, what their underlying messages are, what they're trying to achieve, and thus how they're going to enter the collective cultural consciousness. You might as well be worried about The Incredibles getting hype backlash.

    5. T-Min

      T-Min

      True enough, I suppose.

      So, back to gushing then.

  10. See, I'm honestly still confused about the hate for Frozen. Like, be honest, do you think that people would feel more fondly for it if it weren't so...overexposed?

    1. T-Min

      T-Min

      I mean, if you think about it, it's almost like the one modern-day Disney move that people won't defend is the most popular and successful one.

    2. Tara

      Tara

      I started becoming a lot more empathetic of people who were legit sick of Let It Go when my niece got A BUNCH of toy that sang the song and she would have them all going off at once.

      Anyway, I like Frozen and I like what it tried to do, but it does have some weird narrative choices and I think I can see why people don't like it.

    3. Indigo Rush
  11. Oh my gosh you guys I just saw Zootopia with my girlfriend and it was so freaking awesome I'm serious that HAS to be one of my favorite Disney movies now and it felt so special because we're both furries and it's like aaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-

  12. You know something, I'm not actually sure what to make of The Big Bang Theory from what I've seen. I know it's supposedly "one of the worst shows on television" but I've seen more than one clip of it that's actually made me laugh pretty hard...and then there are a couple I've seen that ARE awkward and stilted, but those are usually the moments that people have taken out of context to highlight how awkward and stilted the show is. So, idk.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      I hate the show, but just throwing that out, it won best sitcom or something didn't it?

    2. Briraka

      Briraka

      Dude, if you enjoy it, then go on and enjoy it.

    3. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      I used to think it was totally hilarious, and on rare occasions I'm still amused by it. And yet, now I've totally lost my taste for it, all things considered. So, I dunno. I guess it's the sort of thing that could go either way?

    4. Boomer

      Boomer

      Personally I fucking hate the show because it wants "nerds" to like the show but then proceeds to take the piss out of them.

      Also the characters are really unlikable, especially Sheldon. I'm also sick of people saying that "he has Aspergers" as I actually do have it.

      Also fuck the audience who laugh at every line.

    5. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      I really like it.

    Pokemon is literally as old as I am

  15. (video)

    excuse me have I entered the nethergates

  16. I know Skyward Sword gets more of the WORST ZELDA EVER criticism nowadays, but I feel like Twilight Princess is, at the very least, the most soulless.

    1. T-Min

    2. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      I can see what you mean, what with all the blatant OoT rehashes.

      But I have a soft spot for TP, since it was the first Zelda game I played all the way through. I love the Wolf Link mechanic, Midna was an amazing character (and waifu), and that final boss is one of the best I've ever played!

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      I agree with you there. I still like it over WW though

  17. You know I just thought about it and MAN I love Sonic CD holy crap it's so good

  18. Have you ever watched someone break down nearly every day and been able to do almost nothing about it?

  19. We've been invaded----by SHOOBIES

  20. My girlfriend and I are mutually obsessed with this dumb 2008 meme and it's amazing

    1. MightyRay

  21. Why do people, when they're irrational, get convinced that their panic-motivated perceptions are absolute truth

    1. Briraka

      Briraka

      Because they're being irrational.

      Spoiler

      :V

       

    2. DBZHedgy

      DBZHedgy

      probably because the panic-motivated perceptions are very much apparent to the person experiencing it even if other parties aren't :0

      like, you can't stop someone with an irrational fear from fearing that something just because it's insignificant to others

    4. Tara

      Tara

      It's an internal defense mechanism.  Your mind tricks you into believing it to protect you, which I'm sure was helpful at some point in human history, but in modern contexts tends to betray us half the time.

  22. Skyward Sword

    Star Fox Adventures

    Paper Mario: Sticker Star

    Metroid: Other M

    Nintendo's Quadforce of Distaste

    1. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      replace Adventures with Command and that's my list

    2. Celestia

      Celestia

      Skyward Sword doesn't deserve to be grouped with Sticker Star and Other M.

      I say that not only because I like it, but because it isn't even close to being as hated as those games are by their respective fanbases.

    3. T-Min

      T-Min

      I'm more so speaking in terms of fan reception. Command usually doesn't get as much attention as Adventures, which is probably the only reason why it's not as widely despised.

    4. RosaRosaRosalina

      RosaRosaRosalina

      i will stil never understand this hivemind of hatred towards sticker star

      probably just because i'm seriously not all that phased by the story, or apparent "lack" of thereof 

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      Forgetting Brawl

    6. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      I live in a world where people think Skyward Sword is genuinely bad. It's so wrong.

    7. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      I'd say Skyward Sword is .0005% better than Other M

    8. KHCast

      KHCast

      SS imo just felt like a drag to play, and was not a fan of the motion control. The story was nice I guess, but idk, felt lacking...not sure why. Was it longer or shorter than TP?

    9. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      I haven't beaten TP (waiting for HD) but Skyward Sword is the most dragged out, tedious, and unfun game in the series so I'd say it'll feel longer regardless of which one actually has more content

    10. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      Star Fox Adventures is gr8 m8

      Eh, well, good.

    11. sonicgirl313

      sonicgirl313

      But I like Star Fox Adventures. T-T

    12. Marcello

      Marcello

      Skyward Sword and Star Fox Adventure are good. Other M isn't particularly good, but it's not terrible either. 

    13. JezMM

      JezMM

      Quadforce of distaste doesn't seem like too harsh a term.

      These are all games from franchises with titles I adore and have played more than once, which, with these titles presented me with experiences fun enough to finish, but missing a whole bunch of marks about what made the previous entries so good and ultimately becoming game experiences I can't see myself ever having the motivation to replay.

       

      StarFox Adventures feels out of place though considering that's definitively a spin-off and was completely shown to be such at the time.  Like yeah it's considered part of the main series but only because Star Fox is too small a franchise to have "spin-offs", and the story directly bridges Star Fox 64 to Star Fox: Assault.  The other three were most certainly 100% trying to be "proper" new entires in the series, reimagining or improving established gameplay rather than intentionally doing something completely genre-changingly different.

  23. Oh my gosh, though, the wedding crash scene in Final Fantasy X is seriously kind of awesome.

  24. Oh, how it pleases me to see white powder falling from the sky to cover the ground in a thick layer of School Repellent.

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well...that's one way to describe snow.

      Although to be honest it also sounds like you're describe a nuclear disaster.

    2. T-Min

      T-Min

      Maybe I am describing a nuclear disaster.
