  1. All these Ultimate players howling "FuNdAmEnTaLs" like a group of malfunctioning Tickle Me Elmos is utterly precious to see, because I don't believe for a picosecond that these people wouldn't jump at the chance to have Lucina, Ivysaur, Olimar, and Wolf nerfed to oblivion if the option was presented to them.

      Is this status about the WNBA?

  2. Man I sure love me some Stardust Speedway remixes. 


  3. The FFVII port on the Switch has toggles to increase the game speed 300%, turn off random encounters, and notably, reset your values to max during combat, including HP, MP, and even Limit.


    While I'm far from complaining about these features existing - the more convenient for new players, the better - I DO wish these could be toggled off in the configuration proper, particularly the God Mode toggle. Pressing those analog triggers can be an accidental occurrence during the thick of it, and idk, I'd feel a bit sour if I was properly getting my ass kicked because I was being dumb, but then one press gave me everything back and made it a breeze. Just my two cents.

    1. Blacklightning


      At the very least that's the kind of shit you should have to unlock first. You mean it's in there right from the start? Who does that?

  4. So where in the timeline does this new Zelda take place in.

  5. Unpopular Sonic opinion: Marble Garden Zone is one of the best designed stages. The path forward is a great subversion with going vertical without sacrificing flow, the multiple paths are straightforward to see and barely intersect with each other until the end, and the mountainous backdrop is gorgeous and gives the impression that Sonic is running around someplace vast, endless, and untouched. The level really doesn't get enough credit.

      dunno about level design, but i vastly prefer the zone's music compared to Green Hill Zone.

    2. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Correct opinion

      I really really do not get why people are down on that stage. Always thought it was spectacular. Huge in scale and has a lot of fun gimmicks

    4. Sean


      My biggest problem with the stage (getting hit while on a top made you lose your shield) was fixed in S3 Complete so yeah I like it now

    5. Diogenes


      yeah i've always felt marble garden was pretty solid. the visuals can feel a bit samey after a while and it goes on maybe a touch too long but i've always had fun with it, so i've never got why people consider it such a low point. if anything i feel going from it to carnival night is s3's real low point.

    I can't fucking believe we're about to get a 3D model of Wart for the first time ever.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Goku can't really feel compelled to wish the Saiyans back if his remembered experience with them in his universe comprises of a kidnapper of a brother, a sociopathic bruiser, a proud prince that took nearly 20 years to fully convert, and the one Saiyan he sensed was pure after two decades. Lest we forget, the Saiyans were not exactly hesitant to commit planetary piracy. Goku just might not want this resurfacing, and Vegeta certainly doesn't after all these years of getting over it. That's not to say the Saiyans could come back though. Freeza could very well wish them back even, knowing he has the strength to suppress them even if they all became Super Saiyans somehow. But a full-scale Saiyan revival would not be initiated by Goku nor Vegeta.

    They should go and unearth Gohan's original adult look. That hair is distinct enough on its own. I think everyone would be up for this.

    Whis is all but stated to be biologically incapable of doing anything beyond a neutral stance when it comes to physical realm matters. Whis smiling is probably more to do with him being proven right that Goku and Vegeta can accomplish anything when they work together, an idea that Gogeta proved in spades.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    The "stock-standard" magic Moro has shown has explicitly been pointed out to be magic he just recently recovered after eons. We don't know what Moro has other than his OHK trump card and the magic he's shown at his weakest. He's steadily getting his magic back, and if he got his wish from Porunga, he'd have all it back at once. So there's still a ways for him to go to show off his repertoire.
  11. All day at work I had the theme song from The Little Mermaid syndicated series playing in my head. I haven't even heard that song since, like, 2003 or something. I have no idea how or why my brain suddenly remembered it.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    It looks like Goku was actively trying to get to Ultra Instinct but just couldn't tap into it consciously yet, so he'll just go straight to Blue instead and save the strain. If that's the case, then it means Goku wasn't confident from the start that Blue could pull it off, and needed Ultra Instinct however he could get it. Broly was just that strong.
  13. Super Sonic Racing has been my ear worm for about a week. Damn that reprise 2 minutes in.

  14. Smash Spirit spoilers:


    ....There are no Startropics spirits in Smash Ultimate...


    ...Despite that game being unearthed to be put on the NES Classic of all things....


    They wouldn't.

    New Super manga chapter is up on viz's site. New villain, bringing lots of new stuff to the table, background and aura about him makes him threatening in a non-power related way. Excellent stuff.

    I guess the Classic verse is just ok with Angel Island being so accessible to everyone now. You don't go to a secretive and hidden island for a simple winter stroll, Amy.
  17. Classic Amy is too good for this sinful earth.

  18. If Galeem struck the universe with one massive blow, how did Mimikyu get killed off by Galeem when its Disguise allows it to no sell one hit. :V

  19. Sakurai and co. looked at the Pauline Spirit battle and concluded amongst themselves that it was objectively correct to leave it like that.


    And that's why they should never be relied to develop anything competent.

      Your Vest Friend


      I actually managed to tick both the Mario and Peach AI for that one into falling down the pit. 


    2. Blacklightning


      I mean nevermind that chasing a pacifist while being hunted down by Mario and giant DK is already dumb

      Why the fuck was it not set in New Donk??? Who in their right mind thought 75m was okay???

    3. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      DK didn't kidnap Pauline in New Donk City, did he.

    Gogeta may be a little more chipper than he was in Fusion Reborn, but he still feels different to Vegetto. Vegetto doesn't miss the chance to trashtalk if he can, whereas Gogeta seems to be focused on the endgame. Here, he only powers up as much as he needs to to keep ahead of Broly while not risking a reduced time limit, and when Broly catches up in power, Gogeta immediately powers up further with no hesitation to keep the fight in his control. Gogeta's more animated, but he's still very serious.
  22. We can kinda narrow down potential DLC choices for Smash based on the knowledge that they bring a stage with them too.


    Like, Dr. Eggman would be a more likely choice over Tails, since Eggman has a big ol' Death Egg he can bring with him to fight at.

    1. SupahBerry


      Well whats wrong with having Tails who comes with Chemical Plant? Everyone loves Chemical Plant!

    2. Thigolf


      I can't really think of many cases were this would apply tbh

      Heck, you could give Tails a random Mania Stage, for example.

      Mildly relevant - I'm gonna be so sad if they stick to their guns with this whole "only making new stages for new franchises unless it's Odyssey/BoTW" thing and only focus on new franchises for the DLC.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Well, the unconfirmed idea is that Majin Buu's absorption victims originally start out as prisoners within those pink pods that are propped up in his head. Buu's absorption antics in the modern era lasted for around 3 hours in real time, so the fanbase kinda concluded that the victims were freed quickly enough. But Grand Kaioshin (and South Kaioshin) were absorbed millions of years ago. Since they were nowhere to be found when Vegetto went inside to inspect Buu, it was logical to assume that Buu's body ultimately assimilated those two into his being, making them truly part of his essence. We have no idea what induces biological differences in Buu's wacky body. Perhaps its Grand Kaioshin himself that was able to facilitate this wacky part about Buu, since we don't really know anything about Kaioshin bodies either. But perhaps this prisoner or the Patrol can help shed light on the matter and find a way to get those two Kaioshins back without needing the Dragon Balls.
  24. “Why does this casual Pokémon game get such good music.”


    Because the RBY soundtrack was the only main game ost that was overall demonstrably good, probably.

    1. JosepHenry


      "Gen 1 is the only soundtrack that's good"

      excuse me where's ma unsee juice 

    2. Ferno


      Gens 2 and 3 are right up there with 1 imo. It's only with Gen 4 and onwards that some tracks started to sound samey/ not as inspired in some places.

    3. KHCast


      I don’t really play Pokémon much anymore, but I did in fact enjoy gen 1’s music from what I can remember 

    4. Sean


      Nice try but gen2/4/5/6 are better

    5. Adamabba
    6. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Gen 3's trumpets got old after the title screen

      no one ever be on Gen 4's pokeballs for it's pianos tho

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    What, the same lore that said that the Super Saiyan state could only be achieved as a Great Ape? The lore that said the power was so great that he blew up the planet he was on unintentionally? Did you think Goku becoming one without going Great Ape was contrary to lore? Legends get exacerbated. Nothing concrete saying you can’t become a Super Saiyan without sacrificing your identity. The exact opposite happened four times before the Broly movie.
