  1. Happy birthday, boss!

  2. Currently downloading this as I type. From some rumbling I heard from Japanese 3DS owners, apparently there are some themes you can earn too as well. And there is a separate crane mini-game where you can earn more free tries on the real crane game. Still has a bit of the "free to play" model, but hoping it's not as tedious to get the free tries, but I'll have to have a real look into the game before I feel like it's worth putting some real cash into it.
  3. The sentient life-like animals produced a bit of an uncanny valley that was kinda weird in the old universe. They weren't similar to the animals you freed from the capsules either, so I can see why they changed Muttski, Akhult and Dulcy to be more Mobian-esque. It's a two birds with one stone type deal, where they could add characters and repurpose old ones with new roles. You could argue that it kinda got rid of some of the uniqueness from the old universe, but I don't think anybody was really clamoring for these characters to come back in their old forms, so I don't mind the change since this will breed new life into them.
  4. I do remember this. This was years ago, mind you, but it was someone asked about Conquering Storm returning because she was Ian's characters, and someone on staff, I don't quite remember who, said that it was unlikely because her design was based on, as well as had connection to Lightning Lynx. The tweet also asks whether there would be a new Chunan boss and Ian responds to sees to just wait and see. Taking what he said literally that we should "wait and see" if CC might return when it could just refer to the new Eggboss for chunan as well. I'm not saying to not expect Conquering Storm to appear; it's all the more likely that she was changed enough to get a pass, but this could still mean something else entirely as well.
  5. I'm pretty sure that Ian said that Conquering Storm would be off limits because her design was based on, as well as had connection to Lighting Lynx, which was a character Ian didn't have a hand in making. Anything related to her Bride title were stuff that Ian made and would be alright with using, but i'm not sure if her design as she was in the previous continuity would make it completely intact if she does appear.
  6. Nothing has been confirmed one way or the other about the hiatus but the most recent interview with Ian and Vincent about it, which I believe is this one http://comicsalliance.com/mega-man-55-solicitations-interview/ and they both seemed a bit less enthusiastic about it returning, which was the general consensus from most people that read the article. I'd like for them to be wrong, but nothing's completely set in stone on it's cancellation, so i'm still a bit hopeful, even if it's a slight chance for it to come back.
  7. Ouch, dude. But you're not wrong. lol Thoughts on the new issue
  8. Really bummed that Boom is leaving just because of mismanagement. Hoping the same doesn't hold true to Mega Man's hiatus but i'm not holding my breath for it. Skelly's work is really great here. It's just really fun to look at.
  9. Hopefully now that Paul is gone, that would hold true since he was the one who always suggested to keep arcs in 4 issues because they could easily fit into trades. It either made certain arcs too long, or jettisoned too much into a single issue. I was honestly getting tired of that format after so long. One thing that does bugs me about the Dr. Wily death plot point was that it was crammed into the crossover. If this was done in the regular Mega Man book we would of dealt with how the other characters reacting to this news and how it would affect them, but since it's just, at least what feels like, needlessly thrown in here. For such an important character like Dr. Wily, and the only thing we got was just one line of dialog from Mega Man, and with so much needless fights and battle it didn't have the impact it should of had.
  10. Thanks for this! There seems to be very little coverage from the event, so it's nice to see someone put up the whole video.
  11. So are you guys saying that NICOLE can't be a good love interest because that's what i'm getting at here.
  12. Who is the credits for that art. It's... not that good? It's mostly bland and uninteresting. I wouldn't say it's lifeless, but it's not very dynamic, and the inking is so thin and doesn't complement the artist at all. The paneling is mediocre, facial expressions have no variety, even the coloring isn't that great. Look at Page 2 and the 2 soldiers who are closest to Axel. Despite them both having different "attire" they are both colored exactly the same. Take Page 3 as another example. It has Sonic repeating the exact same pose three times. The artist didn't bother to give any kind of feeling to how he is running, or the fact that he now scaling the side of the cliff, nor any indication that he did other than lazily laying a panel with him facing sideways. The whole thing is completely uninspiring. I haven't seen art like this in the book in a while. People were knocking on James Fry a few pages back, but at least his art is very expressive and dynamic. Look at how much emotion Chip is displaying on just one page. He goes from worrying and antsy, to determination, to surprised, and then to giddy and hungry upon seeing the ice cream. And it's such a small details, but I also like how Sonic interacts with Chip, by booping him on the nose of all things as he give his speech of encouragement. You can easily tell that Sonic is saying all of this because he doesn't believe a word Chip was saying earlier, so he brushes him off this way by not just telling him, but also showing him how silly his reasoning was. It all give life to the page and it's very interesting to not just read what's happening, but to see what's going on as well. Compare this to, I suppose the Elecman and Mega Man scene and how they are both interacting with the same object. They are supposed to give that machine some electricity but they are both just stiffly standing there, with no real indication that they are expelling energy onto the machine other than the coloring telling you that electricity is flying around. It looks as boring as it does because the artist failed to make it look interesting. I'm gonna stop ranting here, but i'm just really disappointed that this was the artists they chose to work on the crossover. This is the art they chose that's going to expose to a lot of new readers to the book? I'm just utterly baffled but Archie's decision.
  13. I'm still mad that the first pokemon I ever got that had a PKRS was from a friggin' Bidoof.

      I still have the photographic evidence too. http://imgur.com/etcFtVf

    2. Ellipsis-Ultima


      PKRS stands for?


      At least it wasn't a Magikarp.

    3. Illuminous_Orb



      It's very rare, rarer than a shiny. And it can help with a pokemon's growth. And I still haven't found a shiny either.

      I remember that one of my Pokemon got PKRS at end of Pokemon Platinum.

    6. Illuminous_Orb


      And I'd definitely say it's worse than a Magicarp because I really hate the Bidoof line of pokemon.

    7. Blacklightning


      Don't Pokemon spread Pokerus to one another anyway?

    8. Illuminous_Orb


      Yeah it can and I ended up doing that. I guess it was more-so the irony of it all.

  14. The ios version's text had to be retyped and there ended up being a couple of new typos and some of them are pretty bad, from what I've seen online. It's also missing the higher quality version of the soundtracks that the DS/3DS/Wii versions have in favor of the GBA music. The 3ds version on the other hand has a worse screen crop compared to the DS version. The missing frames in animation, which is also present in the ios version, and higher-res does seem to give it a different feel to it that's a little jarring compared to the hand made sprites, but is not as bad because of the 3ds's resolution. The problems are mostly negligible compared to the ios version so if you're sprucing up for one of them i'd say go with the 3ds version.
