  1. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/spiderman-far-from-home-box-office-marvel-studios-sony-a9000146.html?amp

    So it's official. If Far From Home doesn't gross at least $1 billion, we can kiss MCU Spider-Man goodbye.

  2. I've got nearly every single Kingdom Hearts platinum trophy...

    ...and Chain of Memories just sits there...

    MOCKING ME

  3. So, FGC personality Justin Wong has been doing a give-away of the recently released fighting game Samurai Shodown (great game btw). To enter, all you had to do was include the game's tagline #embracedeath on your replies.

    The giveaway was such a success that it got the tagline trending...

    Results have been mixed to say the least.

  4. <<tweet>>

    A human being actually sat down in their chair and typed this.

  5. “I don’t like the new Switch either, you can not like it, but I see no reason why you don’t like it it doesn’t effect you.”

    K, so...sounds like I can’t have a negative opinion (or at least express that) since it’s not aimed at me. Internet conversations

  7. After seeing this, I officially give 0 shits about the LK remake.

  8. Note to self: Don't blindly check what's trending on twitter. Horrible and depressing events may be learned...

  9. I've got Metal Gear Rising, and I've been playing that.

    This is both the coolest and the dumbest thing I have ever played, and I am loving it.

  10. A follow up from the update I made this morning.

    https://secure.avaaz.org/en/community_petitions/Walt_Disney_Marvels_Disney_refuse_SpiderMan_headstone_for_Ollie_Jones_sign_petition_ma_help_change_their_mind/

    Several YouTubers have created videos about Disney's horrible decision and one article had a link to a petition that was started by Ollie's uncle.

    I know petitions rarely work but maybe a heavy dose of backlash will get them to reverse the decision?

    P.S. Fuck Disney.

  11. It would be pretty cool if the TLM remake inserted some concepts from the original fairytale like they did with BatB.

  12. People in response to Ariel being black in the remake: “Ariel being white was essential to her core character! It’s a lazy race swap! Make your own character of color! It’s like making black panther white!”

    ...she’s a make believe character, when was her race a factor? And the black panther comparison doesn’t hold cause it ignores the contextual differences between the characters, like that black panther whole existence is around him being an African king rising to the task. So his race is very much important to his character.(and even if it wasn’t, appropriating a black icon, and whitewashing them in a industry with few of those, but a ton of white ones, is shitty.) Ariel doesn’t have that. 

    Also, can’t help but laugh at the “make you own black characters” responses I’m seeing, cause know what happens when we do? We’re criticized as shoving our agenda and views onto people.

  19. I gotta ask, what ultimately will be the consequence if Activision puts microtransactions in CTRNF? We complain, and go “they better not put them in”, but we’re all still playing. And praising the game despite the issues. So I can’t really imagine much changing, which just will feed into the banality and further cement that companies can get away with whatever. 

  20. Alright SSMB, I'm having trouble deciding again - pick a game for me to play.

    • Banjo-Tooie
    • Halo Master Chief Collection (Time-limited, with one month of Game Pass)
    • Conker's Bad Fur Day
    • Days Gone
    • Shantae series
    • Shenmue 
  21. Nintendo's got the right idea on this one.

  24. Anyone know what company will fix my Lenovo windows mixed reality headset? I called Microsoft but they told me to call Lenovo but they said they don't work on third party hardware (even though the Lenovo name is on the friggin headset -_-)

  25. I think the Pokemon situation is getting out of hand when somebody is parodying a holocaust poem to reflect how they feel about the national dex issue. Or am I being a bit sensitive?
