      Oh hey haven't seen you in a while

      Hello good sir, nice to meet you.

  2. Considering Kid Buu killed 4 out of 5 of the original Kais, Beerus was very lucky to have attached his soul to Supreme Kai and not the others
  3. Honestly it's a bit sad that we've had six attempts to bring Sonic to animation and none of them have followed the games correctly, sonic X got the closest.... But that's Sonic X

      The comics don't really follow the games either so if you want something about the game characters well you're shit out of luck

      What if I like things made after 1997?

      Tbf, Sonic X actually adapted game arcs.

      Sonic OVA resembles maybe one sonic game if you squint.

      You mean an extended opening to Sonic CD?

      Yeah, the Sonic OVA gets a tad...out there, but I'd argue it's the most Sonic-cy piece of animation the franchise has ever gotten.

    11. Diogenes

      the ova doesn't match the games' setting but I feel it comes closest in spirit.

    12. Josh

      I'd argue otherwise. It's got a cool vibe  but it doesn't really resemble a lot of the games and gets a lot of things wrong.

      Sonic X is messy and unsatisfying in ways only Sonic Team could muster.

    13. Celestia

      The OVA has the best vibe and setting (would've loved to learn more about that world) but the characters are "off," to varying degrees.

    14. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I'm willing to let the character designs slide since at the time there wasn't really a set standard compared to today.

    15. Lucid Dream

      I wouldn't say the characters are off in Sonic OVA. This was during the time when there was also Fleetway Sonic (who is also sarcastic and grumpy, to say the least). Sonic didn't have this cheerful personality established at the time. 

      I'd say Sonic X follows Modern Sonic's spirit pretty well, in the sense that it's pretty bad, like a lot of Sonic games at the time...

      did knuckles' weird hat make it to the games

      also i can't remember whether he chuckled or not in the ova

      @Remy It was there in spirit. It's always been there in spirit...

      Sonic X came out right before Sonic Heroes so you can't even say it came out at a particularly bad time, the Adventure games weren't considered jokes yet and the Advance series was there to satisfy classic buffs, I say things were pretty good. Honestly you could say X was the starting embers of the downfall (bad writing, characterization and 4kids)rather then a representation of it lol

    19. Dejimon11

      It still amazes me that "Gotta go fast" is a tagline for the series. 

    20. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Sounds about right. Sonic X was the start of a LOT of bad things for the franchise. For every it did right, it did 5 more things wrong. And of course it's the things they did wrong that got carried over into the games.

      Yet it kept on TV and never went and every time they aired the re-runs they kept promoting it like it was a new episode and apparently the show did well in terms of views years after it ended holy crap.

      Yeah, it was a colossal hit pretty much from day 1 and was the cornerstone of the block for nearly a decade. It was basically 4Kids' Spongebob. Even reruns years later regularly beat out any new shows they put on the block.

      I don't recall how the ratings did compared to other channels, but it sure was a juggernaut as far as 4Kids was concerned.

      tbf, X did a damn good Adventure adapt. I legit think there was only one bad episode in that arc.

  4. I think Goku is getting a bit to hard of a rep from fans for this personally. I don't blame him putting the Universes in jeaporady because despite vague warnings and unrelated events, he wasn't to know, especially since he believed him and Zeno to be on friendly terms so he figured his buddy just wanted to see a regular fighting tournament. Now that he's aware of the danger what matter is how he'll be portrayed going forward. I actually do want to see it getting called out a bit because even in the worst of times (purposely not killing Buu and inadvertently getting Earth blown up and all of his friends, including both his sons, killed) no one has ever really told him how dangerous that can be seriously until Beerus so I think that's long overdue, especially now that their existence is at state
  5. except right after this scene he STILL was buddy buddy with Zeno much to everyone's chagrin sooooo
  6. But most casual non Sonic fan folk don't care about that and assume the problems with that port was universal
  7. It's basically a meme that Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 are seen as jokes at this point. The xbla re releases started that surge of people saying the games sucked and then every popular reviewer and let's player (Game Grumps, Projared, Best Friends, etc) went back to them and all hated it which created an echo chamber of new hate towards both games and that's where we're at now. Needless to say, I sure as heck wouldn't put Sa2 at number 1 because of this
  8. Man why was Rayman a trophy in Smash when he, was nowhere else in the game at all? 

    1. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      same reason they put a Wonder Red trophy in the game. To make it all the more painful when they put fucking Corrin in the game instead.

    2. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      Because of Ubisoft's dick move with Legends screwing over the Wii U.

      This is Nintendo's way of mocking them.

  9. Remember how we're never allowed to play the original version of Super Mario World  2 Yoshi's Island ever again and we have to out up with the gba version getting re released?

      Say waaaa?

      @Tails spin  Yoshi's Island, alongside other games like the original SNES Star Fox, use the FX chip for their graphics. Nintendo had trouble emulating the chip for the Wii Virtual Console, and then let the rights to the chip lapse (which is why they aren't on the Wii U despite that console being more powerful).

      Apparently nobody owns the right to the chip right now, so Nintendo could pick up the rights and start work on get the original games on the store; but that doesn't seem to be a priority for them in regards to the VC.

      im still salty

  10. Kirby 64 is underrated, or maybe that's just me appreciating the slower more abstract style of Kirby presentation then the more actiony video gamey super star style 

  11. About to play Kirby 64 since it seems to have  more KDL3 feel then the Super Star feel most Kirby games have. I'm excited 

  12. I didn't recall that being said anywhere?
  13. I don't see how this game could take place in any other time line then the adult one right now, the evidence is so overwhelming that I'll be surprised if that isn't the case
  14. I meant DS, since the argument was comparing consoles and handhelds
  15. The Wii/DS combo both selled incredibly well so...??? I really don't get the correlation here and how it's some how the 3DS' fault the Wii U tanked , nor the idea that the 3DS' successes somehow means it was harmful to Nintendo and should something gotten rid of, or releasing a game or two for it every now and somehow translates to directly hurting the Switch It... Really doesn't. Switch is still the clearly superior hardware with a unique gimmick, I don't see how anyone would pick a 3DS potentially over it unless they weren't interested in the Switch to begin with. And you severely underestimate Nintendo's developers if you think they'd be spread that thin that you believe there isn't enough people to make games for both systems just fine. I dunno they seemed to have done it fine before. NSMB didn't convince people it was preferable over Galaxy
