  1. 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.

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

      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???

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

    Olivia caught the flower bouquet at Kukui's and Burnett's wedding too. It's happening, kids.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    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.
  4. 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.

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

      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.
  6. “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.

      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.

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

    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.

    Live Action Detective Pikachu Movie (Summer 2019)

    They had the opportunity to make every Pokemon look as mass-appealing as possible. Make everything colorful and cutesy, for the sake of the brand. The fact that they didn't is a vote of confidence that I can respect. Every Pokemon has a design choice in mind that goes above and beyond, but doesn't detract from their original designs at all. They have an atmosphere and ambiance in mind for this movie, and they are going to stick with it. I'm genuinely interested in seeing this movie.
  9. This will be one of two days where Mr. Mime will be trending on Twitter, so I think it should be considered an international holiday tbh.

  10. When's the realistic Jynx.

      I think they may have went a little too far out there.

  11. Kinda random, but I think "Super Sonic" is a stroke of naming genius.

     

    Snappy, alliterative name. Supersonic is an actual word, and its definition still resonates with the theme. And it still invokes a sense of power and gravitas.

     

    Yeah, naming Super Sonic as such may be simple and perhaps predictable. But it doesn't take away from the impact the name has.

  12. Wonder if there's even a passing hope that Eggman's in there serving as a boss. We've got Dr. Wily acting as AT, might as well get the other doctor here in some form.
  13. The original 8 Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Zelda, Ganondorf, Mewtwo Marth, Ike, Robin Dedede, Meta Knight, Pit, Palutena, Olimar Wolf, King K. Rool, Lucario, Villager, Little Mac, Shulk, Ridley Potentially Sonic, Megaman, and Pac-Man That's a good 32 characters to work with for a "rebooted" Smash Bros. that covers most of the bases. Not impossible to get some story-centric content out of that, though it does come with the cost of losing some key players and some of the quirky blokes that have contributed to Smash's charm over the years. And then you have to add newcomers on top of that.
  14. Nair would always call out the Bronze Sword even if Robin was holding the Levin Sword in Smash 4. They simply just removed that trigger, and gave Nair a power boost with the Levin Sword factored in.
  15. The final build is in Spain now, and people are going right into it. Particularly, Pichu seems to built like a berserker glass cannon. Tilts are so quick to end and aerials autocancel and end super quick, so he's in and he's out. And Luigi's grab is indeed a tether grab. He uses the Poltergust and shoots a plunger to grab, like he did in the Simon cinematic. And Robin straight up got a new move added into his kit. He can use the Levin Sword with his Nair now.
  16. Leave it to Sonic to intentionally slow down and risk getting caught by the beams just to save a woodland critter.
  17. lmaooooooooo goddamn Mariotehplumber is claiming to be the Chadondorf leaker.

  18. Their reaction to this leak has just been so out of GameXplain's M.O. compared to all the other times stuff has leaked. They're "supposed" to explain; they haven't explained shit. If you were to go look at a reputable source that has made their mark on thoroughly explaining stuff to a meticulous degree while weighing the pros and cons, if that source were to respond with "Nah we'd rather just lie on our backs and blow these bubbles into the wind and see when they pop, fuck this so-called leak.", real or not, you'd probably be pissed off. It's not what you were expecting, it's contrary to their practices, and it sours goodwill and reputation later down the road.

    This episode was just a cavalcade of anime references, not just Utena. That glorious Jessie screenshot! A knowing shoutout to most of Megumi Hayashibara's iconic VA roles through her 30+ years of voice acting. From left to right, to the best of my knowledge: Himiko Shinobibe - Mashin Hero Wataru (her third role in her career, dating all the way back to 1988!) Ranma Saotome - Ranma 1/2 Lina Inverse - Slayers Rei Ayanami - Neon Genesis Evangelion Lime - Saber Marionette J Literally Hello Kitty/Sanrio Faye Valentine - Cowboy Bebop Ai Haibara - Detective Conan Minky Momo - Magical Princess Minky Momo Paprika - Paprika Fantastic stuff.
  21. The intro to Tom and Jerry Kids is now playing in your heads, and you now have an entire brain cell dedicated to remembering it. Bwahahaha
