    Jeffhog got a reaction from FFWF in Kid Icarus: Uprising   
    So I went and got the game a few days ago.

    ...this is the greatest piece of portable software I've ever played in my entire life. Best 3DS game I've ever played: it had the presentation, it has great content, it has high replayable value thanks to the difficulty levels, weapon customization, and WiFi services (though I keep getting my ass handed to me, why did I have to wait to get the game... ;-; I've yet to win once...!), the story was great, so was the music, but what stole the show here...

    ...god damn it, I love the cast of the game! XD That made it fun! The dialogue was the best part!

    Jeffhog reacted to Soniman in My Hero Academia   
    Let me talk to you guys about this real quick
    My Hero Academia is the new rising Shounen on the block, potentially rivialing its contemporaries like Naruto and Bleach in poularity. It gained a lot of traction, probably because its pretty dang good. 
    The story is about a boy named Deku who, in a world of people with superpowers, has none of his own. But as fate would have it he runs into his idol, the world's number 1 hero All Might. From there the story goes into a underdog tale of Deku working hard and improving to hopefully someday become the world's greatest hero himself. Stqarting by attentind a prestegious hero academy with other fellow heroes who share the same goals.
    While not the most freshest or most subversive anime/manga around, it does play around with the formula enough to keep things from being to formulaic or predictable. Character archetypes you've come to expect are played with and twisted so they're given a relatively fresh perspective. Our main character is a emotoinal, talentless boy who wears his heart on his sleeve, as opposed to a confident, niave hot head that comes to permeate the genre. Character designs are fun, varied and well thought out, the "power system" with quirks are all unique and are mostly on a even keel, your power is what you make of it, and even with the most seemingly unimpressive power you can becaome a competent fighter and hero, it makes fights more interesting when everyone has something unique to bring to the table and isnt goverened by a single power system.
    I could go on about the gut punching emotional moments, the mostly solid character development and relationships with each other, and so on but id honestly say check it out for yourself. The anime has 2 seasons and is about to finish it's second one, the manga is ongoing so if you dont wanna wait just read that! If you wanna watch the anime id say go for either sub or dub since they're both really solid. 
    I leave off with this brilliant piece of music from the anime

    Well... tomorrow is Thursday. We could be seeing the English version for this go up in the morning, if not early next week. SoA usually comes first with the big trailer reveals so I don't imagine they'll be sitting on this for too long.
    Not gonna lie, this made me feel much more hyped and actually made me genuinely smile today for the first time in a while, something I really needed. It's refreshing to see a Sonic story with more action and weight behind it again!
    God this game is going to be so incredibly self-indulgent with my Avatar and I'll love every minute of it.

    You guys are reading too deep into this. He wants to destroy the world to create his own world. Not blow it into pieces. That's how Eggman does things, that's how it always was.
     
    "No matter, I will DESTROY Station Square anyway"
    "In its ruins, I will build Robotnikland, the ultimate city"
     
    Why just a city if he can destroy the entire world now, and build it all to his image? That's his plan. Nothing OOC for Eggman.
    Eggmanland is all he wants? Meh...
    Eggmanworld is his ultimate dream.

    I have to wonder if all the bizarre 1000-yard-stare avatars in the background of that one shot are simply placeholders for actual player characters that'll be loaded in when online or something? I feel like that'd be a neat gimmick.

    I get the feeling he's here to put extra emphasis on Infinite's time and/or dimension powers.
    That's the story justification, anyway. In reality he's here cuz Generations did well enough. XP

    Just noticed: Shadow's eyes are doing the thing again.
    If that's really intentional now and not some "graphical oversight" since we're less than two months away from launch now, I'm really curious to see just how he wound up on Team Eggman.

    It's quite normal for soft launches to happen in territories with relatively small populations. I guess it's kind of like a public beta, essentially. 
    For what it's worth, this game is absolutely fine as a little time sink. I'm not yet convinced that Sky Sanctuary will be in Forces though. GHZ in this game and Forces hardly reuses any of the assets from Generations. It's similar, but the assets are nearly all brand new. Sky Sanctuary in the other hand is directly lifted from Generations here.

    Unfortunately, there's no real guarantee it will be out immediately. For all we know, this could just be another soft-launch (albeit puzzling why it's only in the Philippines right now, could just be an early release slip-up) while they continue to refine the game in the background before an international release, with most of the bugs ironed out at that time.
    But hey, so long as I can get in on that sweet action real soon (too impatient to bother making a Philippines iTunes ID), then I'm ready for it anytime.

    Knuckles is extremely duty driven, so that's one trait he has that makes him leader ish.
    Not a good leader, but at least has the energy and focus of one.
    (His stupidity (At least in S3&K and SA2) comes more from him being too hyper focused on his task that he failed to see the bigger picture and bluntly rushing toward what he perceives as the obvious danger.)

    You could say it's more important for a leader to hold speeches (that they didn't write) and make decisions (Based on advice and research done by others) and present an energetic, intense, dutiful and active face and image for the rebellion to keep morale up.
    That's why Knuckles is the leader.
    Even if he's dumb as a brick, Tails and Amy can do all the planning, strategzing and mental legwork behind the scenes while Knuckles is just being a theatrical Man Of Action to inspire the troops.

    But yeah, it's a mental whiplash to go back to serious duty driven Knuckles after he's been a completely useless dolt for over a decade.
    I'm just happy to give him something to do again, other then just standing in the background because "He's main character...Allegedly".

    A fair concern. Personally the main thing that bothered me with Chris was how weakly the whole loneliness plot was handled. Something people say a lot is that his parents seem perfectly nice whenever they're around and I can't disagree, but I don't think that undermines what they were trying to do with Chris in itself. The issue was that Chris felt neglected, not abused. Instead, what stood out to me was that you saw his parents pretty regularly, so it never really felt like they were actually consistently absent...of course, it's been years since I watched the show and I don't have any interest in refreshing myself on it, so eh.
    This got me thinking about a way they could handle a character based on the Avatar though. You could do something where they feel kind of overwhelmed by the whole situation, despite genuinely wanting to help. I mean, if you were to run around doing your best to help out with just a weapon and a grappling hook and if your name isn't Batman you'd probably feel a little weird running around with people who can break the sound barrier and fly and so on.
    I'm a sucker for "relatively normal person trying to make a difference even in a conflict involving tons of superpowered idiots" so I'd be down for something that explored that sort of thing in the Sonic universe. The game most likely won't get into this since 1) the Avatar's confirmed to not have any dialogue beyond grunts* and 2) they're an avatar, obviously, meaning there probably won't be much in terms of character development. But if IDW decides to include something like this I doubt they'd have to deal with those limitations.
    *Not that I think you'd absolutely need a character to speak out loud to get development, but I doubt the Avatar'll get inner monologues either let alone any sort of complex interactions...unless we're talking like, text-only stuff in hubs or something? idk
