  1. I just realise something about IDWs Rough and Tumble characters.

    I don't know which is which... lol

    1. charmsb


      Im pretty sure its the opposite of what you expect. Rough isnt the big burly one - Rough is the skunk. Tumble is the one thats left.

      It is funny though, they never try to make it obvious.

    2. Domino


      Rough's the little guy, Tumble's the big guy.

      They are both Skunks.

      @charmsb It's a fair mistake to make. So if Tumble is the big one, he's the one without the iconic skunk tail.

      But you're right, I would've expected Rough to be the big one. lol

    6. charmsb


      Rough is big and rough, and Tumble is small and tumbles around. Oops, thats incorrect for some reason, lol. I guess thats a good way to remember it.

  2. Okay, here are my picks. Knuckles Chaotix - Midnight Greenhouse Sonic Battle - Green Hill Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity - Catch Me If You Can Sonic The Fighters - Death Egg's Eye (Never Let it Go) Sonic Jam (Remix) - Sonic World (SEGA Genesis Remix) Sonic Rivals 2 (Wild Card) - Race to Win
  3. Oops. So in Skyward Sword HD, I was supposed to jump off the statue and glide down to complete the ceremony.

    I wanted to show off by gliding at the last possible minute.


    .....I was too late.

    Since Zelda pushed Link off, technically, Zelda murdered Link. Game Over. The whole franchise never happened because the first hero tried to show off.

  4. Well here's something cool that appearing in my recommendations.

    Be warned, the following footage is fan made.

      Looks fantastic, but... is realism the right step for Banjo Kazooie? Feels super weird

      Heh. Wouldn't even need a warning to tell me this was fanmade. Shoving outdated N64 models in Unreal, then putting stock grass and trees everywhere has become frowned upon over time.

      As blunt of a"Rareware Hire This Man" as you can get.

      I just don't like putting "OFFICIAL TRAILER" in the thumbnail. Some poor 90s kid is going to see that and briefly get excited just to be let down.

  5. Huh. So Disgaea 6 kept Asagi trying to become a protagonist. I believe that did finally happen in the mobile game they called Makai Wars.

    But the series does also acknowledge they seem to be many different Asagi, some having totally different personalities and voice actors. Maybe that Asagi just happened to be the lucky one.

    ...Or I'm over thinking what is essentially a joke character.

  6. Okay. I finally got my hands on Disgaea 6. Now let's go.


    Wh-Where the hell is the animated intro??

    Disgaea 1 never had one but 2, 3, 4, D2 & 5 all had one. What. The. Fuck.

    They could've added an intro in Disgaea 1 Complete and it did bug me that they didn't but maybe they didn't want to add too many changes. But 6 has no excuse, dammit.

    ....I haven't actually pressed start yet and am already annoyed. This is a bad sign. Lol

      Crow the BOOLET

      I was playing a little bit of it before Monster Hunter Stories 2 came in and I did laugh a few times but it hasn't really opened up yet so I haven't started the major grind yet. I'm glad they finally embraced the sheer ridiculous of the series since you can level grind pretty easily and enemies are in the 100 range by area 2.

      Oh and Rikopin (as in Riko Kohara) is voicing Biko so that made me happy. Another Bandori alumni in the series after Aimi in the previous game!

    2. DanJ86


      Just completed the first chapter.

      Damn. The level growth is totally different. This is gonna take some getting used to. I was the God of Destruction at level 99 and assumed "Oh, I'm supposed to lose this fight." Forgetting that my guys had already levelled to around the 70s. 

      Having purchased the DLC, I had Adell in the party and since he's my least favourite protagonist in the series, I put him up front to get curb stomped and draw the enemy closer, but dammit all, he survived!? Lol

      The Super Reincarnation thing sounds a little like the mechanic in Zettai Hero Project....or that could've been just a story beat and losing in an actual battle does get you a game over? 😕

    3. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I actually don't know if you can get a game over from losing. I actually won myself but only barely. And don't get the name wrong either; Super Reincarnation is the mechanic though you don't have to spend any Mana for the cost, only for when you choose your aptitude like Good for Nothing, Average, etc.

      did buy the DLC so I do have Adell and friends but ehhh I'm kind of disappointed Nippon Ichi went for the DLC route instead of having them be fun cameos/unlocks like how they used to be. I did cave in and started using the Hololive set because they're at least based on generic classes so I don't have to worry about them breaking the game early on.

      The level growth is actually pretty fun though not gonna lie. I just want Item World to open up already. I do feel like Mana gain is pretty low in this game because I can't seem to go past a certain cap? I dunno. I like it so far but I generally like the early game of these games.

  7. Despite being out for years, I'm still learning new things about Breath of the Wild simply by learning how others played it.

    I never thought to fire an ice arrow at a horse to simplify capturing it. (Kinda cruel though.)

    Also apparently the embers on a torches flame moves in the correct direction to traverse the Lost Woods? I thought the trees faces were a clue but I'd always get lost and fumble around blindly, dashing back if it looks like the fog is gonna engulf me. Surprisingly, that method consistently worked.

      i didn't realize you could force a bokoblin off a horse by just using Stasis on them (they'll freeze in the air) until last month. the game's nuts, man

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow


      I never thought of doing that...

    3. JezMM


      I never worked out the lost woods clue thing either - I got through by leaving myself a breadcrumb trail of icons on the map and gradually got a bit further every time.  One of the most amazing things about this game is that neither at the time nor after learning the "proper" method did I feel I had got it "wrong".  Anything that works is the correct solution in BotW.

    4. Wraith


      I feel really proud of myself for picking up on it now lol

  8. I hadn't realised that at some point I got 15 subscribers to my YouTube Channel.

    It surprised me because I hadn't completed an animation in some time and only have a handful there, still being a self-taught novice.

    I'm still happy and appreciate it. :)

  9. I recently finished the campaign in Mario Golf Super Rush and it was fairly enjoyable but I do find myself in the same situation I was in when completing the campaign in Mario Tennis Aces. I don't know what else to do on the game. It lacks the variety of modes that Aces also lacked but was prevalent in the N64 and NCG versions. It just gets boring playing the same modes all the time, even though Speed Golf is pretty fun and hectic. The story was a little weird. It did something surprising too but ultimately didn't really do anything with it. I'll go into a little detail in spoilers. I go back to Miitopia since they seem to add new random side quests each day and for some reasons, I'm compelled to try and get all those medals despite them seemingly giving nothing in return. I've completed the main campaign at least and was surprised how deep it was for a game that wasn't taking itself very seriously. Since I never played the 3DS version, playing the Switch version was a whole new experience. I'm surprised about how much British slang is included in the writing. I generally only hear "I fancy a cuppa." in my neck of the woods. Localisers never really both adding unique accents or slang terms from other countries, except for those that localise Dragon Quest games. And lastly, I've been playing the DLC of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. It's kinda nice that you have to unlock the content, rather than simply getting it straight up. Going back to the game might've been real brief if I didn't have to work to earn them. Even though some missions are a pain in the butt. lol
  10. I briefly drew something today.

    That might not seem like a big deal until you learn that I've probably only drawn like...3 times since the pandemic hit.

    I rather like how it is turning out but it's far from ready to be shown.

  11. Haha. I've been watching Fact Fiend videos recently and just learned of a clue I had never noticed for years in the Who Shot Mr. Burns Part 1 episode of The Simpsons.

    It's easy to miss but after Mr. Burns asks who has the guts to stop him, everyone avoids eye contact except for the one that actually shot him.

  12. After my Switch failed to download anything for about a week, I finally looked up advice for what I could do to solve it.

    What ended up working was retrying repeatedly....which was weird but okay. Took about five attempts.

    1. Supah Berry

      Lucky I read about the warnings so haven't updated my Switch yet.

      As much as I gain a lot of good will in Nintendo thanks to recent announcements, the fact they've gone a week without fixing it, or at least trying to roll back the update or prevent more people from upgrading is still unacceptable and will practically reverse that goodwill the longer this keeps up. Very bad timing for this to happen at E3 and Eshop sale time. 


      If this was meant as a trade off where Nintendo beats the odds with dozen quality announcements no saw coming yet completly neglecting their firmware and leave nobody left to see if it can stay functional (meaning everyone can actually get to play their new games)...


      Frankly I'd rather have the other way around

  13. Been watching The Lonely Goomba recently. His accent...it's so familiar to me but I just can't place it.

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon
    2. A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      like a british accent? or do u mean something more specific

    3. Soniman


      Guru Larry?

    4. DanJ86


      @A Match in Oil Ocean Zone I was thinking more specifically. I think it is a type of British accent but we have regional ones too. It would be embarrassing if it turned out to be a Yorkshire accent because that's what mine is. lol

      @Soniman Yeah, Guru Larry has an accent too. Are they the same? I hadn't noticed. Darn, now I need to know. XD

    5. A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      he does sound a bit like guru larry

  14. I just realized. Kirby as Kazuya! lol

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      They should give him the red eye glare Kazuya has

  15. How is it that I have no physical reaction to announcements of my own but when I watch and listen to other people getting super excited, I get chills and a sense of joy from seeing them happy?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Some people are just happy seeing others happy, I guess.

      Also, other people's hype can be infectious.

    2. DanJ86


      @Ryannumber1gamer That's true.

      In fact I have noticed that the reverse can happen. As in I get sad when others around me are sad. I even coined the phrase "emotional sponge" to my parents because of how I absorb the emotions around me. lol

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      It's not an unusual thing - if something is dragging down the mood, it happens. It's usually what killing the vibe refers to. Something kills your excitement and makes you sad.

      Music is probably the best example of where this can have an effect. Listening to different emotions of music can influence how you feel in the moment.

    4. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Well one things for sure: You'll likely get a real good kick out of making other people happy with what you could give them.

    5. DanJ86


      I guess it bothers me a little that I don't get those levels of excitement for myself. I'd imagine it gives the impression that I don't care about certain things yet I know deep down that I do. If that makes sense.

  16. There it is!? The Wii U game everyone forgot is being ported!? Fatal Frame. XD @Crow the BOOLET

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET


      Now they just forgot the Wii game!

  17. I forgot to mention that my black eye has fully healed.


    How I got it is written here.

    ....I can't think of anything else to say.

    Can you tell I'm bored? I should really get to sleep.

  18. I don't really follow SonicTubers that talk about news. I do follow a couple that could be described as one, but they tend to focus on in-depth analysis or showcasing mods. People like Game Apologist, J's Reviews, Garrulous64, Blue Vivacity and Sonic Overtime. Game Apologist and J's Reviews don't really focus exclusively on the hedgehog. So perhaps I lack the knowledge to add anything to the discussion. I can see how them spreading unannounced news or "Leaks" could influence the community. More trusting individuals might take what they claim as the truth and outright hate whatever Sega and Sonic Team eventually announce that turns out to be totally different.
  19. I like watching videos of games with mods activated. Since I don't play modded consoles, it'll like seeing something new. Plus with a fun personality from a commentator and editing to show the best bits, it comes together as an entertaining experience for me. ^-^


  20. Oh no! Mario, Link and Iron Man have been kidnapped by Mr. Burns! I must become a scientist and rescue them with the aid of Hatsune Miku, Toadette and Panty, however we got distracted by Prince Waluigi unleashing a troublesome genie, Neo Cortex. Palutena had dealt with him once before...

    I'm still playing Miitopia. BTW

    1. T-Min


      My first thought was that this sounded like some Fanfiction.net ultra crossover.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I wish I could go ahead and pick what characters I'd want to cast as who for stuff like this if I didn't have such a problem thinking too hard about it. I'm not used to games with alot of freedom in it since I often see myself more of a player than a maker. (yet why did i go through the trouble of buying both mario makers then)

      I'm always worried about spending way too long coming up with and fleshing out something than it needs to be, and I don't wanna copy what somebody else already did for their characters.


    3. DanJ86


      @Supah Berry It's funny you should say that as I agree with you and it's why even though I have ideas, it's daunting to make them real in the likes of Little Big Planet, Dreams or Mario Maker.

      Miitopia does actually have you covered in that department. You have multiple ways of finding customised Mii from other people, either through special codes, friends or popular ones on the server. In fact, all my characters originated from the popular creations of the community so while the creative process is still there for those that want it, for anyone that just wants the silly fun, the game caters to them, too.

  21. I've spent the day trying to save the land of Miitopia from the evil dark lord Mr.Burns with the help of the Thief, Link, the Chef, Mario and the Mage Iron Man.

    I got Miitopia for my Birthday. XD

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Goodness,  that sure sounds like fun.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Sounds like you got the leaked first episode of Simpsons Season 35

    3. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      The game is such a fanfiction generator and I love it. 

      I didn't know how to feel when it was first announced for Switch, as I loved it for the 3ds but I didn't think it needed a remake. Regardless, I had the feeling people were going to do cool things with the makeup feature.

      Needless to say, my expectations were more than just met.

      Also, Happy birthday!

    4. DanJ86


      It's also funny because I based the horse you can recruit on Epona and she and Link instantly hit if off. lol

  22. I've been pretty quiet here for a while.

    Thinking about it, I still have nothing worth saying. *shrug*

  23. I didn't even realise Scott The Woz videos had a blue borderline until the 200th episode special. Lol

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Of course, only Scott can see the border.


    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      This yours? If so, well done.

    2. DanJ86


      Sadly, no. I didn't make this. When I show something I made, I usually mention it.

      Still, Lego is good for stop motion animation. I just lack the space to set something like that up.

  25. Triangular....fossa.

    Triangular fucking fossa!!!

    I wonder how many people will understand this reference?
