  1. mfw Roll, Dr. Light, and Dr. Wily are most certainly getting Amiibo for this. Maybe throw in an Eddie Amiibo for good measure so you can summon him at any point in the stage, not just at set checkpoints.
  2. People are criticizing MM11's Megaman's walk cycle as being stiff but....it's a 3D model of a taller robot? Shouldn't it look stiff?


    Just looks aesthetically pleasing to me tbh. I'd much rather have this than Megaman doing something like the Belmont Strut.

    1. JezMM


      If I had to guess, the new one is a little lacking in drive and weight.  It's clearly trying to emulate his original sprite running motion, but we already saw a game successfully translate that into 3D:

      I think the head movement is a key part to it.

      I know a rigid movement style technically fits a robot, but that doesn't mean it's an appealing movement artistically speaking, or satisfying to control.

  3. Looks like Megaman has a new overclocking mechanic where he goes all Limit Break when his health is low and a weapon gauge is high. He charges a Mega Buster shot, and boom, overclocked and ready for max damage output. The kind of innovation that makes perfect sense for a game about a robot. If they're confident enough to bring in new toys to play with in this long-awaited revival, I say this game's development is on the right track.
  4. It was great seeing the Makankosappo in all its potency  this week. The Demonic Piercing Light Murder Gun has the potential to be the deadliest attack in Dragonball if its concentrated properly, so Piccolo can always have a trump card to win ready in group fights, and that was displayed gloriously here.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    I think if Roshi is caught off guard he won't be able to restrain himself. He's certainly developed to where he won't go nuts over any curve that moves, but force it on him suddenly, and, well Plus an invisible fighter does sound like a boring prospect to Zen'O, and exposing the bug warriors would certainly make it more palatable for him. And it would be karmic; Quitela's fighters have been, on the whole, cheap and dirty and trashtalking fighters, so why not have his trump cards be brought down by an "accidental" "cheap" ploy?

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    This episode is one of my favorites in this arc now. The gravitas of the situation was really made note of. Universes 9, 2, and 6 as a whole appeared to be only ones who knew that erasure was on the table for them. The Pride Troopers kept it to themselves, Universe 7 is so compact and yet only Bulma, Dende, Baba, and Mr. Satan are really aware of the stakes, 10 was so nonchalant about it, and it looks like 3 and 4 didn't really bother to spread the word. But while 9 went into mass hysterics and tried to bail, Universe 2 as a whole dutifully watched their representatives fight for them and transferred their love to them to keep fighting, and Universe 6's Namekians gave up their very selves to give Saonel and Pirina a fighting shot. The Universes put themselves forward on this one, not just a band of ten. If any Universes are revived, 2 and 6 should be among them. They deserve it. So Universe 4's secret fighters really were invisible, not just underground? Guess that explains why Quitela shot down Potara Fusion as an idea: at least one of the invisible fighters would have had to put the earring on, and, power boost or not, the earrings would be an instant tell on the fusion's location even if the body remained invisible, and ruin the fighters' strategy. This is the first time a truly invisible fighter has been an opponent since The Invisible Man himself from Baba's team of 5 so this will be nice to Master Roshi is going to get a nosebleed and spray it on the stage and reveal the bugs isn't he

    He just admitted to firing Flynn for lying and subsequently asking Comey to let the investigation go afterward, which is essentially obstruction. Unbelievable.
  8. Playing F-Zero for the first time and I am surprised people want a revival of this trash.

    1. JezMM


      Not that many people care about the original game (or the GBA games, which played similarly).

      F-Zero X and particularly F-Zero GX is what people want more of.

      This status is basically the same as saying "Playing Sonic 1 for the first time and I'm surprised Sonic Adventure 3 advocates want more of this."

    2. TCB


      I rarely hear people talk about a revival of F-Zero the game. It's more towards the games JezMM mentioned.

    3. Marcello


      I don't. Give me a new Wave Race. F-Zero can stay dead for all I care.

    4. Sean


      Jesus didn't die for this status update

  9. Call it cynicism or grasping, but Hydrocity in Mania just feels so paint-by-numbers and "there", and I feel it might have been put in just so the team could avoid putting Ice Cap in it and embracing a fad.

    1. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      I dislike it almost as much as Flying Battery.

    2. Zaysho


      Hydrocity and Flying Battery are easily the weakest of the returning levels. I prefer their original incarnations by far.

    3. Diogenes


      i wouldn't go quite that far but i do feel hydrocity is one of the weakest stages in the game.

      flying battery is rad as fuck tho dunno what y'all are on about with that

    4. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      It goes on for eleven years, has that annoying part where you're outside and have to go on those spinning electric things, I get lost very easily, and it has the most annoying act 2 boss in the game. Blegh.

    5. Yeow


      The Act 2 boss is indeed problematic but I otherwise can't really agree about Flying Battery being a weak (remixed) stage at all. The magnetic properties of the electric shield and the outside/inside switching gimmick really expands on the original level to great effect.

    6. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      Eh. Walking upside down does very little for me.

      I did love the aesthetic of the outside but actually dealing with the stage itself was not fun.

    7. Dizcrybe


      Hydrocity >>> Metallic Madness

      At least the former didn't make me think "why did they bring this back?"

  10. Was it ever established what happened to the original Megaman and Roll inbetween the events of the original Megaman series and the X series?

    1. Forte-Metallix


      Nope. It's just meant to be left up to the viewer's imagination.

    2. Marcello


      I though X went crazy and killed them?

    3. Ryannumber1gamer
    4. Forte-Metallix



      That was Zero- And even then, Keiji Inafune confirmed that rumor was false.

    If they have time to talk, they have time to think and strategize. "I'm not here to fight. I'm here to win." 18's all in trying to win the wish for her family. 17 didn't even want to join until Goku brought up the wish, and now he wants that luxury cruise liner for his wife and kids. They have their eyes on the prize, and nothing's going to distract them from it.
  12. I get the narrative reason for why Mania went with the Bad Future for Metallic Madness and the Good Future for Stardust Speedway, but damn do I wish that was reversed. I love me some Good Future Metallic Madness, with its glistening utopia and perfect merging of nature and technology.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      We got Stardust Speedway past and present. No future.

    2. TheOcelot


      MM was only in Present version in Mania.

      They should have copied Stardust Speedway and have act 1 in the past.

  13. Hey Arnold actually trended on Twitter over Trump and football. Amazing.

    1. SweeCrue



      He literally has Trump hair on both sides of his football shaped head.


      Of course he trended.

  14. Craig Bartlett said that a new season of Hey Arnold! could be greenlit if the Jungle Movie is a success over the weekend, and with the reviews for it being positive, hey, I consider it a responsibility of mine to watch it over the weekend.

    1. Dizcrybe


      how hard is it not to bring old shows back

    2. Marcello


      Jungle Movie is out?

    3. Ferno


      Really kicking myself for not having cable right now. Hey Arnold was one of my faves.

    4. -Robin-


      @Ferno it should be up for streaming on Nick's websites tonight, I think.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      I don’t even know when/If Nick UK plan to air it.

    6. Marcello


      I looked around and it doesn't seem like Germany is getting it until next year... :-/

  15. Those focused on achieving do all that they can to leave their mark on history.

    Those obsessed with winning want to leave their mark on history no matter what.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    The only downside to the Kefla fight was that she never went Super Saiyan 3, like Caulifla had set out to do from the start. Of course that might mean that she's destined to unlock it in a future arc, consequently giving the game away about U6's fate in this arc, but still, Caulifla could have unlocked it for just a brief second at least.
  17. Good Morning Chrono

  18. One of the newest characters added in Fire Emblem Heroes is a powerful Fighter unit named Dorcas, and he prioritizes taking care of his sick wife over anything else, and all the fighting he does is for her. He's apparently being voiced by Kirk Thornton, sooooo Shadow the Hedgehog and Maria parallel, I guess.

  19. If Vegeta picks up Ultra Instinct as well, I could see a Fusion Dance between him and Goku, rather than Potara. Putting on the earrings is a non-martial arts maneuver that requires a conscious decision to go through with it. Fusion Dance is itself a technique, and one that the at-the-time unconscious Goku and Vegeta can't have their pride interfere with. The bodies are thinking on their own, and they're thinking fusing is the way to go.

  20. The melee counter compensates for the some tediously precise angles the 3DS circle pad allows for, since it allows for instant lock-on. The platforming can get cramped at times with the level of enemy presence, and that's dire in Hard Mode and Fusion Mode. Having a counter option to immediately take care of danger that you still have to time the counter for helps significantly.
  21. My qualm over the George Takei scandal is that this person accused him while Takei was overseas on tour despite being a prolific celebrity in general. Kinda comes across of trying to generate controversy at a time when Takei can't properly respond.

      this "guilty until proven otherwise" shlock will get out of hand soon if it keeps up. Public shaming shouldn't be a thing that is allowed.

    The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    Given Virigina's electoral map it's a good thing the HoD is still slightly in Repub control. Equivalent representation still has to account for something, and the current entire west side of Virgina could be seen as being played if the HoD got a blue majority. The last thing Virginia Democrats need is accusations of doing the same things the conservatives did as far as consolidating power goes.
  23. -Robin-

    The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    The Virginia HoD won't be called until the absentee ballots have been counted, and those tend to swing left, iirc? Conservatives like Hannity are trying to play tonight off as a loss in states Trump didn't win, but I think that misses the point. Disregarding the implication that they truly don't care about states' governments despite their stated position of reducing the federal government and giving power back to the states, these were mainly candidates that championed conservative agendas and went full ahead on Trumpian populism as if it was a golden ticket now. And failed. Extravagantly. And there's no way these guys would not be championing Trumpian populism if Gillepsie and Republicans had routed the VA chambers they already had firm control over, so it's just blowing smoke in the end.
