    Yes it's just an Utena reference, but come on They're not even being subtle about it.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Yeah, the Freeza Force had not in any way “fallen” by the time the trek to Namek started. He was just down one race of mercenaries, but given that race died out twenty years prior and he still had a good grip on the universe to that day, he was still going strong. Freeza just made the retrospectively questionable decision to bring his entire elite force with him to Namek, and when he and them subsequently fell, Sorbet was the only left to keep things together and pick up the pieces. He didn’t do a good job of it.
  3. Remember that scene in Dragonball Z Buu Saga where Van Zant and Smithy snipe an elderly couple walking down a path trying to find shelter?

     

    Yeah, fuck that scene. My most hated moment in Dragonball, just from how it got under my skin and pissed me off.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    I prefer the Dragonball Minus backstory for Goku tbh. Bardock's & Gine's genuine love for each other is completely alien to the Saiyan culture. Ofc that nurturing and empathy, that carried on to Goku's time on Earth, would end up creating the first Super Saiyan in a millennium. It also presents a fascinating parallel with Broly. Paragus genuinely seems to love his son, just like Bardock and Gine did with Goku. But Goku had the privilege of living on Earth and really come to peace with his life and his friends through the years, while Broly was all alone until Paragus found him, but then molded to hold bitter resentment over Vegeta all this time. It comes across as Earth truly being the deciding factor for changing the ruthless Saiyans for the better. The three Saiyans all show different levels of growth as it pertains to Earth: - One loved as a baby, growing up on Earth and rightly calling it home. - One that's seemingly born for power first and love second, growing up with the cold and cruel Freeza, but came to Earth and learned to love and care for others - And one who was similarly loved as the first, but with no history with Earth at all. Three Super Saiyans born at the same time, becoming vastly different and their own persons through their different lives. It's just thought-provoking.
  5. This Atelier song sounds like it belongs at home as a Sonic CD Good Future song, damn.

    Holy HELL.

  8. Gohan killing Cell is probably one of the best death scenes in anime, as far as presentation goes. Just seeing Cell disintegrate ever so slowly as he chokes and screams in agony, before bellowing out one last flabbergasted line about his perfection, and then being blown apart from his attack stance and his body reduced to shreds, including seeing the arms and eyes dissipate to nothing, and one last disarming moan as the remnants of his outline of where he was finally gives way to the blast. 

     

    It's a shot by shot sequence of what happens when you succumb to one of these anime attacks, and it's incredibly chilling.

      I think what really sells is the look of horror in his face as pieces of him slowly begins to disintegrate.

      I know people love to give shit to the Faulconer soundtrack nowadays, but Cell's death is easily one of it's best uses. It really just sells the entire moment.

      @Ratcicle King The transition from a look of shock and disbelief, to one of pain and horror, amidst the flashing lights of the attack overwhelming him and pieces of his body flaking off....It's so seamless that it comes across as eerily genuine and real. That is the power of animating things frame by frame at its best.

       

      @Kuzu the Boloedge That was the first time I heard Ginyu Transformation, but damn did that song feel appropriate for this moment. You can feel the finality of the moment with it.

      The original JP also had a pretty good song, it and Ginyu Transformation basically had a pretty similar mood.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    I commend Nintendo for getting the least hype-intensive and hype-setting fighter by virtue of being from Animal Crossing smack dab in the middle of the marketing push, so hype can be properly settled in at the beginning stages of marketing, and near the end near release date.

    Mega Man

    The Double Gears do tweak the gameplay a bit, but not to the degree of it making it Easy Mode and being enforced. My first run of it, I didn’t use the Double Gear at all, just relying on the being patient and observant to get through. In actuality, the two Gears come off as being “Bonus Mode” toggles. Use the Speed Gear, you can progress through the area faster and get some goodies like the E-tank, but you have to cognizant of how fast things are moving so you can take full advantage of it. Use the Power Gear, you can mow through obstacles...that you could already do so with your normal kit. Some things are still invincible against the Power Gear, so you still have to know what you’re doing and not go in guns blazing. If you know what you’re doing, abuse it and go all in. The Robot Master weapons even have a Super Attack in Power Gear to let you have fun in it. The Two Gears are a fun tweak to the system, that doesn’t patronize the player in using to them to make the game Super Easy Mode. Clear design to me.
  12. After all these years, Sonic 2 Special Stage is still such a banger song.

  13. Hi, I'm an outsider to Megaman for the most part.

     

    The Megaman 11 demo is really fucking good. Welcome back, Blue Bomber.

    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.
  15. 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.
  18. Tiki has come back in Fire Emblem in such a big way recently that I'm hoping this culminates to her being in Smash.

    WELCOME BACK, XENOBLADE COMPOSERS. BLESS.
  21. 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.

    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.

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