    Mega Man

    Guess what's up? As someone who's not that invested into Megaman, and even couldn't really get into the original Megamans...Damn, I'm impressed. Platforming's tight, the Double Gear system aids in the gameplay smoothly, the animation is super crisp and has that Megaman charm to it, the enemies have that quirky element to them (fucking anti-Eddies), it's all here. It really, genuinely, feels like the evolution of Megaman people have been waiting for, which is strange to say speaking as an outsider. Gonna get this at launch no doubt.
  2. SEGA of today is not just a video game software maker, it has other enterprises in Japan that they focus on via the SEGA Sammy conglomerate. 

    Outsourcing the IPs to other developers makes sense from that lens, viewing the video game market as "simply" another enterprise and basing decisions on that perspective. At least they're outsourcing the stuff to studios with proven backgrounds.

    The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    On that note, Trump has mentioned he has no intention of deliver parting words to McCain, thinking that McCain had a vendetta against him and just wanted McCain to give up the Senate seat. If he sticks to that and doesn't have solemn remarks for McCain, that could further contribute to the schism the GOP currently faces. You can bet whoever will replace McCain will be constantly reminded that Trump hated the former seat holder, and if he/she doesn't at least attempt to emulate McCain's methods, that will cause reverberations in the Arizona political landscape. Arizona is steadily becoming further blue. The last thing the GOP needs is McCain's successor for his term metaphorically flipping off his grave in the process and worsen things for them.

    John McCain concluded treatment for his brain cancer yesterday, and has passed away today. He was 81.
  5. Tiki has come back in Fire Emblem in such a big way recently that I'm hoping this culminates to her being in Smash.

  8. Just realize that since the Switch is not region locked, westerners will get their chance to play the first two Fire Emblems as they roll out the Famicom games, and the next three Fire Emblems as they move on to the Super Famicom library.


    I know I'll be getting those.

  9. I can't even with Sakurai at this point.

    The site's been updated with item pages and such, and Sakurai tweeted a picture he particularly liked. .... After that "red eye" comment, I can't even anymore.

    The concept of Dracula became public domain in 1962, meaning anyone can take inspiration from it without running foul of copyright and royalties. As such, any Dracula that derives from the original Dracula, is itself an original Dracula. Same goes for the Dracula in Castlevania. It's an original character that takes inspiration from the original Dracula, but is still originally a video game character.
  12. Geology rocks, but geography is where it's at.

    1. SupahBerry


      And Geometry is what it looks like.

    2. VEDJ-F


      Geography is a lot more than just locations, it's as much about the very function of the Earth itself. 

      i wish i'd studied in hindsight

  13. Who told King K. Rool he could bring an actual musket gun with him to Smash Bros.

    1. Adamabba


      He's a king, he doesnt have people telling him what to do

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Snake, he brought an armoury himself.

      Well I did put my smash vote as Kaptain K.Rool so...

    5. SupahBerry


      Because it's a oversized cartoon gun that's prone to malfuntions?

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    With Dark Samus being promoted, Knuckles being an AT, and with him nowhere in sight for two presentations, we all know that Shadow is all but confirmed at this point. But the big thing is, Sakurai and co. also know that we know that Shadow is all but confirmed at this point. Revealing only Shadow in a specific trailer, as 3rd Parties would be, would be an underwhelming revelation, something we knew was coming anyway, fan and developer alike. Basically what I'm saying is I have the strangest feeling that Eggman is about to drop in as well. The environment seems to be just right for it.
  15. Guys.


    Richter Belmont of all characters is getting an Amiibo.


    What the fuck.

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      I'm sorry but what's the issue?

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      richter but not simon?

    3. Shade Vortex

      Shade Vortex

      Pretty sure they confirmed ALL the Smash Bros. characters will get amiibo, including Daisy, Chrom, Dark Samus and Simon.

    4. TCB


      There's no issue.

      Robin is saying we now live in a world where we will have a collectable toys-to-life figure of a Castlevania character done by Nintendo.

      This timeline I swear just crazy man

    5. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Dark Samus Amiibo?

      Hell yeah.

    I'm no Namco buff, but there's more songs to this than just from Galaga, right? And just to add onto the Sonic composers, Yusuke Takahama worked on the soundtrack for Sonic Colors DS and the second Mario & Sonic.
  17. You now remember that the Nicktoon Catscratch existed.

    1. Ferno


      before it came out i really did believe nickelodeon's hype that it'd be the next great nicktoon and would probably get like 6 seasons or more, etc. the actual show was just ok. I liked it but it wasn't something on the level of rocko's modern life, rugrats, or spongebob. ironically looking back, as it came out in 2005, it really did feel like the last good nicktoon of the classic era before the well dried up and Nick soley relied on just Spongebob for years.

    2. TCB


      You now remember that this existed.


    3. Yeow


      @TCB also known as "watch my chops"

  18. It's called Nickelodeon Kart Racers, so the characters might not be just from the Nicktoons branding. Very well possible other non-toon franchises can get in it. That said, could be cute to see some retro cartoons be revived for this. Sign me up for some Rocko, Angry Beavers, Kablam, and Doug (Does Nick still have some creative hold on it?) racers.
  19. So should I be expecting an Animal Crossing remix from Hideki Naganuma at this point, or what.

  20. Credit where its due, they had to find a way for people to turn heads for new F-Zero content in Smash, and they found it.

    1. SupahBerry


      Smash 4's F-0 rep was so offensive, so this is an instant improvement.

    F-Zero, 80s western cartoon opening style. There's actual lyrics.
  22. Whoever designed Special Stage 7 in Plus should be legally disbarred from making video games for life.

    1. SupahBerry


      fans make better sonic games than sega

    2. Patticus


      @SupahBerry But Sega wouldn't have the fans who make better games than them if they hadn't made the games they make better versions of!

    3. Candescence


      Thank Christ for the giant ring right at the start of Flying Battery. Makes actually retrying the stage significantly less painful.

      Though really all the new special stages are a significant difficulty jump from the originals. It's a shame the endgame payoff is kinda lacking, though funny.

  23. Shoutout to the Mania Special Stages forgetting that collision detection exists if anyone hits a hazard, thereby letting one think they can cruise over small gaps at Mach 3 when actually they can't anyway.




    Mania Special Stages are  as well designed and mechanically sound as a unicycle using a soup can lid as the wheel.

    1. Strickerx5


      and yet they're still some of the best special stages we've ever had. Right up there with Rush imo.

      ... why did they come back again?

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Not sure I agree with them being some of the best, honestly. Would've preferred Blue Spheres just being the Special Stages with them being accessible from the posts like they are. Makes things less frustrating a stressful.

  24. It's honestly going to be an end of an era when Pat Sajak, Vanna White, Alex Trebek, and Bob Barker pass on.

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Yeah, I can see why since Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy! and Price is Right are still aired in the US and have their fanbase.

      In terms of UK gameshows, it is end of an era because we lost Bruce Forsyth, Jim Bowen and Dale Winton all very recently. A big chunk of memories gone... Some old school ones such as Bob Monkhouse (even though there is an Australian host who does act like him though, Andrew O'Keefe) and Terry Wogan have passed as well. There's only Ben Shephard, Bradley Walsh, Nick Knowles (eh..), Alexander Armstrong, Warwick Davis in terms of hosts with only a couple who have done more than one show and even then gameshows aren't as popular as they used to be.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    No excuse for Marron, but Goku didn't visibly show signs of aging until he met up with everyone at the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai, when he was 19 years old. Could just chalk Goten and Trunks up to acquiring that set of Saiyan genes whereas Gohan inherited more human characteristics, including the biological growth pattern. Same applies to the mature Saiyan bodies though. They remain at their physical peak until their mid to late 70s. Paragus simply crossed that threshold and deteriorated fast.
