  1. 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.
  3. Super Sonic Racing has been my ear worm for about a week. Damn that reprise 2 minutes in.

  4. 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.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    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.
  6. 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.
  7. Classic Amy is too good for this sinful earth.

  8. 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

  9. 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. 


    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. VEDJ-F


      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.
  12. 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.

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      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.
  14. “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

    7. Ferno


      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.

    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.
  17. 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.

  18. When's the realistic Jynx.

    1. Shiguy



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

  19. 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.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    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.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    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.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    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.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    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.

    Leave it to Sonic to intentionally slow down and risk getting caught by the beams just to save a woodland critter.
