  1. Oh. Just learned something about the origin of a certain phrase I've been hearing a lot.

    It explains something I've been confused by and I found it interesting. I don't know if it's worth sharing...

    I struggle with words at the best of times.

  2. I really like this Paper Mario style design for Wario made by a "Ninspriter."

    I'm currently working on animated Kirby doing his dance. I did the body movements first and seeing it on it's own is funny to me. ^-^

  4. I've gone back to Yoshi's Crafted World since I never completed it before and have now noticed how many similar themes it has with Paper Mario: The Origami King.

    In Crafted World, you also have to cross a river, get chased by an angry creature in a forest, enter a Japanese style mansion with ninja lurking, cross an ocean on a boat and get chased by a big thing that'll totally game over you. 

  5. This is part of the Kirby voice that I mentioned several days ago. I can still hear the music but a website that @Supah Berry shared made the music much quieter.

  6. I really miss the Autism Group I used to attend every two weeks. The last one was back in March and had to be stopped because of certain global things.

    You don't realise how important something is until it's gone. I hope those that I met there are doing okay.

      Very true. I am an Aspie and it helps to have others with the same spectrum to talk to.

      One of my local mall's has one; they call it the "Coffee House" although it really has nothing to do with buying coffee or anything. While I did get to meet up with a few gamer geeks like me, there hasn't been anybody I met there that really clicked with me or I socialize with outside of there. But at least I felt comfortable and was socializing in there at all.


      It especially pisses me off that this happened knowing that place was already struggling financially. I've not received a single email from the company running it, so I worry it might not get to open up again when everything else does. There's hardly anyplace else I can go to, since the politicians here are so far behind in helping to provide stuff that young adults on the spectrum like me could benefit from.

      The other place I have is a community theater where my brother met my sister-in-law and we all perform in, but obviously that's all be put on the back-burner till further notice as well. 

  7. Gosh, I found a brilliant sound file of Kirby saying hello that I'd love to put to an animation. Trouble is that it has background music. I wonder if it's possible to remove that?

    Note: When I say it's Kirby saying hello, I don't mean his usual "Hi" from Smash. I mean he literally introduces himself as Kirby and offers a formal greeting.

      Wow, it certainly helped. The music can still be heard but his voice is much clearer.

  9. So I've been loving Bug Fables but I felt like it really needed a map to help me work out where I need to go for stuff like side quests....

    Do you know what the funny thing is?

    THERE IS A MAP!?

    I'm on what looks like the final chapter, close to the final boss with only a hand full of side quests left to do and I didn't realize that to look at the map, you have to select it in the key items section of your inventory.

      Well....congradulations for making it that far without a map?

  10. That moment in an RPG when you are about to reach a boss battle after traversing a long puzzling dungeon and forget to heal your party and save before approaching it.

     

    FUCK! >.<

  11. I don't really know how to play Rom Hacks to I watch other people play them. This one is weird.

    1. Rabid-Coot

      Rabid-Coot

      I've been playing a few simple rom hacks recently its an easy process of applying a patch to the right version of a rom with a patching program.

  12. Have you seen this? I found it pretty hilarious and thought I should show it to you. It's Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door but badly translated Mod.

    Warning though. It has swearing and innuendo in it.

    1. Emperor Robrainiac

      I've been hearing a lot about it and watched Vinesauce's video on it. Looks pretty hilarious! I'm gonna have to look this up sometime.

    Was just searching Futaba Sakura art and this weird thing popped up. 0_o

      what's weird about it

      it's just futaba

      I can't see what's unusual about it.

  14. D'aww, I'm trying that FallGuy game for the first time. I managed to qualify in the first round and then lost in the second.

    I was decked by a ball near the finish line and actually saw the last qualifier pass while I was down. lol

  15. I'm watching Youtubers review the 2018 movie "Predator" ...or is it "The Predator?"

    Anyway, it's strange because I haven't watched the movie and it's a genre I tend to avoid. (Horror. Though based on what's being said, this movie seems more like an action or comedy?)

    I'm just happily surprised that most people seem to know more about Aspergers than I thought. Not surprisingly, Hollywood knows nothing...

    1. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      I've only seen bits of the first one with Arnold Schwarzenegger, which to me felt like an action mixed with a bit of sci-fi horror here and there. But from what I've heard it began to take a somewhat more comedic tone as the movies went on.

      But yeah, I've read up on it, and the yeah, its portrayal of aspergers sounds.... wow, pretty bad, to put it lightly. Not a shocker that Hollywood is that out of touch.

      Sort of on topic, but a little different, but I just watched a review on that recent John Travolta horror movie, "The Fanatic," where the main character is supposed to be autistic.  ...Wow, it feels like someone (Whether be it the director, Travolta himself or the writer,) did their research by only watching Chris Chan videos and thinking "Yep this is how people with autism act."

    2. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Ah...I've seen a review of "The Fanatic" too.

      I....um....while the reviewers were taking a comedic play in how they review movies, the clips they showed of it...were pretty unpleasant to watch. (To put it politely.)

      Just remembering it is making me uncomfortable all over again. (The movie parts, not the review. They seemed pretty confused about it if I recall correctly.)

      The only "next step in evolution" here is the devolution of comprehension of the mentally challenged from these higher ups that insists on only going what they're labeled with. If you want to call your film business a "Woke" industry, the first step is to maybe read the facts about what you're potraying.

       

      This comic would be a good place to start

  16. It's been months and I still haven't been able to catch a scorpion on Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

    One even ambushed me! I was just walking by a tree, minding my own business, when I suddenly faint for no reason.

    One had to have been waiting for a chance to strike.

  17. If anyone remembers me sharing this:

    jYGl3K3.gif

    It's now turned into this:

    It's still unfinished but I am pleased with the results I've gotten so far. The logo featured does still needs work, but I have all the actions that'll take place in this animation planned out. The final version might last something like 15 seconds or so, which might not sound long, but I never wanted it to be long anyway.

    .... 😳

    *Insert rude joke here* 

  18. Looking at the latest topics has made me realise something.

    I'm not really sure which Sonic games I'd categorize as being my least favourite.

    Most of them have something I like which generally overshadows what I hate. But saying I like them all would be incorrect too. 😮

    My favourites are easy. Sonic The Hedgehog 2, 3 & Knuckles, Adventure 1 and 2.

  19. Don't know why this was on Cartoon Network but it's glorious and if cuteness could kill, we'd all be doomed.

      Was it really, though?

      Yeah, this is just some shmuck who took a fan animation and slapped a CN logo on it.

      The original animation is here, but it's still a reupload: 

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FN0-jA1BeWE&feature=youtu.be

      Apparently the original artist ditched all of their social media accounts.

  20. I was just drawing and suddenly remembered that Power Stone was a thing once, that made me sad.

    Capcom have a heck of a lot of beat-em-up IPs, but we only ever get Street Fighter these days...

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I never played Power Stone, but I did watch the anime series. Loved the character designs.

    2. Sonictrainer

      Sonictrainer

      Power Stone was my jam and its concepts could work for a Sonic Fighting Game.

  21. After a lengthy break, I went back to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Still have to unlock Thanos and a second character I assume, (With the DLC added, their is an empty character slot on the top left and top right of the character select screen.) though I don't know who it is.

    It was a slog to play through on Superior mode. But then I unlocked Ultimate mode?? I'm never gonna unlock everything in this game!? I barely won the final battle in Superior mode. >.<

    1. Cuz

      How's the game? It's starting to peak my interest.

    2. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      From what I remember of the original games, the gameplay of 3 feels the same. You have a level up system which helps for tougher enemies and harder difficulties but only covers active characters.

      If you're not familiar with the franchise, you travel around levels as a group of 4 while playing as one of them, you can pick from something like 30 + characters that'll join as you progress. The AI will handle the other 3 active characters and all you do is press a button to swap who you play as. The game is built specifically for co-op and I believe you can play online too. It's still a solid and challenging single player experience in my opinion. It also follows the comic continuity, rather than the movies.

    3. Cuz

      Cuz

      Used to play the X-Men Legends games with a friend back in the day, and even got into the 1st Ultimate Alliance for Wii. So I'm a little familiar with the franchise. Still it's been over a decade. Thanks for the rundown. Doesn't sound like much has changed. 

    4. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Ah, in that case, I can add that I feel the story is much easier to follow. One thing I remember of Legends and Alliance 1 & 2 is that the camera would remain above the playable characters during certain story moments. 3 has a much more cinematic camera placement which helps immerse me at least.

      You can also choose to use "Classic" camera style during gameplay or have the camera closer to the player character. I watched some online play between 3 players and they had greater freedom of movement too. (For example, in the originals, if a character strays too far from the others, they'd be forcibly warped back. This doesn't happen in 3 during online play.)

  22. I've been watching random Let's Play videos and came across Sonic 06 DLC. I have no memory of this...

    I remember DLC for Unleashed and...what passed for DLC for Generations. My memory really sucks sometimes.

    1. shdowhunt60

      shdowhunt60

      There was a few DLC for 06, but not much of it was special. You had the Hard Mode levels, and Team Attack Amigo, and that was pretty much it.

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      The DLC wasn't that bad actually. The Team Amigo stuff improved Tails gameplay a bit, the Hard Mode made some levels have better layouts and boss mode added a few minion fights which was kinda nice to have certain characters go to maps they never went to.

  23. It's been surprisingly awkward to get to grips with animating while using sprites.

    Can't decide if Wario looks right in the Paper style design I gave him. I put him next to Mario to see if they look natural together...

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      Design wise he's exactly the same with a white outline.

      He still has legs even.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      For starters, his eyes have to be plain black dots; it's a golden rule shared by all humanoid paper characters. It will also enthusize his teeth, since his mouth is always much bigger than Mario's, who you can see does not have his mouth visible by default.

      As previously mentioned, he must'nt have legs, but rather make his shoes large enough to support his obese body.

       

      240-2404727_paper-mario-wario-wario-wari

      Try referencing how versions like this look, which neither are simply recolors of Mario nor just look like the regular version of Wario with toon shading.

    3. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      I always thought Wario was way taller than Mario, turns out he's only slightly taller.

      I didn't want him to look too much like Mario either. I also didn't think to check out other peoples design ideas, some of them are pretty neat. Back to the drawing board for me, I guess. lol

  25. This video just appeared as a recommendation and I just had to share it.

      I want this to be real so badly, AND I NEVER EVEN PLAYED ZELDA!
