    Johnny Boy reacted to Big Panda in Digimon - Digital Monsters   
    Speaking of the dub, I can’t help but think this series would be the perfect opportunity to try getting the franchise going in the west again.
    The original series caught on and became popular in the west back in the day. Maybe introducing the original gang to a whole new generation of young viewers could spark that flame again?

    I am hyped as fck. I never thought a Crash 4 would ever happen, I hoped for it when the Trilogy remake came out, and here we are.
    Also, according to Reddit there is a hidden Dropdown menu in the official Website's code that refers to a PC and Switch Version.

    Johnny Boy reacted to Won't Stop, Just Go in Eggman looked up to and admired Gerald Robotnik.. so why did Eggman become evil?   
    Eggman looks up to Gerald because everyone likes Gerald and he also wants to be liked by everyone. He doesn't understand or see the value in humanitarian efforts, just the part where he was praised for his genius.

    Johnny Boy reacted to KHCast in Police Brutality Thread   
    honestly I don’t sympathize with any police departments since all police are apart of a overall corrupted institution that has oppressed for decades that rarely has instances of police holding eachother fully accountable for said corruption. The concept of a “good cop” imo does not exist when those “good” cops are either silent, or defensive until it becomes some national issue. Only then will they make sympathetic emotional posts or gestures. When all eyes are on them. The examples I posted are official police being told by higher ups to do this stuff, with ICE, National Guard, etc all in on it, and Trump is only further enabling their behavior, especially when years back he even said to “rough up thugs”. they aren’t small patches of “otherwise fine police”. It’s entire precincts in massive states with anyone that may have a problem with it staying quiet and not attempting to do anything till it’s too late. And that shit has been going on for, again, decades. Let’s not forget frisking still goes on in many places still, and it was being treated normally for the longest time. This is the inevitable end point. It always was gonna go this way if they kept pushing and didn’t  make any real effort to change. Especially when the last time BLM worked with police to make body cams a thing, shit officers just turned them off regardless and continued to do what they were doing before. So I say a couple likely insured buildings being burned down isn’t nearly as damaging, as the shit for years they’ve been doing to US citizens, by terrorizing communities, murdering people in the name of “justice”/“fear” incarcerating people on false or exaggerated charges, etc. that institution is in need of a ground up reform, or just needs to be thrown the fuck out.
    But anyway, that aside, yeah, peaceful protesting is only one form of protesting. A form that often isn’t even good enough for minorities to do without being told they’re doing it wrong, so people shouldn’t really be shocked that things start to escalate when that’s proving to be ineffective.


    Edit: god there is new information and cases of police corruption almost every 5 minutes, it’s so difficult and exhausting to keep up with to share. I’m gonna take a break, but before I do that, here’s this little gem 
     
    Are we in a fucking dystopian movie or something?

    Not voting for Biden over Trump because he's not progressive is laughable. It's very simple. Not voting for Biden works as an unused vote which could have helped Biden beat Trump. So if you aren't going to vote for Biden then you are indirectly helping Trump.
    I reject the simplistic notion that Biden and Trump are exactly the same. I could talk about how the two have policies that are very different (most notably on the minimum wage - this isn't some small matter, it will be a huge impact on people's lives). But you aren't just voting for Biden, but the Democrat party and to end the Republican domination of the Senate. That's the main goal really, because the Republican party as a whole is the threat - not just Trump.
    Now I think the Democrats arent great at all, but they are better on virtually every progressive issue than the Republican party as a whole. And significantly so. There's a reason why poor people and ethnic minorities overwhelmingly vote Democrat. Their lives will be seriously affected by this election. If you don't vote for Biden, you are complicit. It's as simple as that.
    Also, to answer your cringey mene picture, Bernie endorsed Biden, because he understands that we have to operate within a flawed system to get the best result available. Throwing everything out and letting Trump win in cynicism might make you look pure, but it doesn't do anything to improve the lives of people who are worst affected by him.

    People are literally dying right now due to the current administration's failure to properly address a pandemic. The administration that let kids die in cages. The administration that says we should copy China in appointing a president for life. The administration that is packing the courts with conservative judges which will prevent unbiased rulings for decades. The administration which consistently makes decisions which will permanently wreck both the environment and economic futures of this country and/or planet. The administration that is primarily delegated on twitter. The administration that is run by the leader and his children rather than qualified scientists or other experts. The administration that creates propaganda videos that play at news briefings. The administration that consistently admonishes the press for their existence. The administration that threatens other countries if they won't do it's dirty work. The administration that will block federal funding unless it includes money for a vanity project until a transportation emergency forces it's hand. The administration that wants to remove medical programs because of the person who initiated it. The administration that expects a check that doesn't even cover a month's rent in several cities keeping people with no income alive for 10 weeks. The administration that will delay the release of those checks so the leader can personally put his name on them. The administration who's leader was the third in history to be impeached. The administration that creates controversies at best constant chaos at worst on a daily basis so we've all lost track of them all by this point.
     
    You can say Joe Biden is a poor candidate and shouldn't be the nominee; I don't think many if anyone here will disagree with you. But to equate him with what you have to have lived with for the past nearly three and half years? To say you're fine with things continuing as they have because the alternative isn't ideal? I'm sorry, I can't respect that.

    You can vote for Biden, and not much like it because he represents a last century status quo that lead to Trump's emergence.
    But the alternative is tacitly endorsing fascism and the end of democracy as we know it.
    That's the choice.
    This isn't like 2008 or even 2016. This is 1932.
    I don't understand anyone who would not vote Biden in these extreme and life-altering circumstances. He's not great, I wouldn't have let him run if I had any say, he's clearly mentally deteriorating, but dear lord why can't you understand the existential threat represented by the man whose party revealed the Constitution to be nothing more than toilet paper.

    If we do get another Xenoblade rep, I think it’s either gonna be Rex or Pyramid. As for the gen 8 Pokémon rep, my money is on Rillaboom since we already have Greninja and Incineroar as the stand alone water and fire starters respectively, so we need someone to rep the grass types.
    But if Springman gets in, I really hope another Sonic character like Tails or Eggman get in since it would prove once and for all that Spirits don’t deconfirm.

    Doubt it’s Spring Man since he’s an assist trophy. I’m hoping for Twintelle (a.k.a. Best Waifu) as well.

    So hypothetically, if Biden gets the nomination and loses to Trump, I guess that really shows how little they’ve learned from 2016, huh?

    I really shouldn’t be surprised of the shit that leaves Biden’s mouth nowadays, but like...holy shit, my mouth dropped hearing some of this. Yeah the OP of this tweet is right by a mile. Bernie won it, but it won’t matter, CNN were clearly padding this for Biden, and it’s obvious they’re gonna skew their articles to paint him in a better light than Bernie. And it’s gonna work.

    The Sonic movie still isn't out in China yet due to obvious, more important, reasons but because of that we've kind of lost the chance to see how the initial numbers would have been had it gotten a regular world-wide release. It's a bit of a shame but still it's also very understandable.
    The fact that this movie did this without China is unbelievable.

    Even though she may be a Fly type, I always consider Rouge to have a slight claim of being a Power character since she originally had Knuckles' moveset.

    Sonic is still #1 movie in the world, beat the Disney movie yesterday, managed to surpass 100 mln in US, and broke 200 mln globally. All in 10 days. Prepare the champagne, those are a lot of achievements.

    I beat Yozora!! Finally!!
    Yesterday I said he was impossible, but then later that day he seemed less impossible. Today I fought him again and, after a few hours I think, I finally beat him. Just barely, too!
    I never want to fight a secret boss for as long as I live

    Saw the movie tonight as well. It wasn't as terrible as it could have been. But it didn't feel like a Sonic movie to me. The ending credits was probably my favorite part. 😅 I'm curious to see what they will do with a sequel because you know it is happening. I'm surprised they haven't announced it already TBH.
    I don't see this movie reaching 1 billion worldwide, but I could be wrong. In a way I want to be proven wrong because what a mind-blown moment that will be. 🤯 Sonic the freaking hedgehog is more successful as a movie star than in a video game.

    I....loved Sonic's characterization in this movie? Still the same character, if only with a younger, inexperienced, more cutesy portrayal. Which worked great for this movie.
