  1. Yes it's just an Utena reference, but come on They're not even being subtle about it.
  2. 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.
  3. This Atelier song sounds like it belongs at home as a Sonic CD Good Future song, damn. 

     

  4. Where the FUCK has Atelier music been all my life. 

    Holy HELL.

  6. 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.

      Remember when Villager was the scary meme fighter?

  8. 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.
  10. After all these years, Sonic 2 Special Stage is still such a banger song.

  11. 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.
  13. 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.

  14. John McCain concluded treatment for his brain cancer yesterday, and has passed away today. He was 81.
  15. I can't even with Sakurai at this point.

      something something energy something something oof

  16. 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.
  17. Geology rocks, but geography is where it's at.

      And Geometry is what it looks like.

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

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

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

  19. 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.
  20. 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?

      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.

      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.

  21. 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.
  22. You now remember that the Nicktoon Catscratch existed.

    1. Ferno

      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.

  23. 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.
  24. So should I be expecting an Animal Crossing remix from Hideki Naganuma at this point, or what.
