  1. 2 eps into Diamond is Unbreakable.  The wacky color palettes work so much better here since the entire show seems to embrace them and push them further, and the lineart looks more satisfying too.

  2. i know Zelda n Switch are the big hype monsters at the moment but I'm sitting here like, 4 days till Berserk Musou brooooo

      It's already a better adaptation than CG clang show.

      Gonna be taking my main man Serpico out for a spin

  3. As hype as I am for Breath of the Wild, my biggest concern is still the open world.  Most open world games these days bore the shit outta me, and while I'm optimistic that it will be fun, I'm also trying to keep my expectations in check in that regard.

    1. Josh

      They seem to let you head straight for the main quest unlike other Open world games that try and force the boring shit on you. I'll give it a chance.

    2. Gregzilla

      I think it'll be good too, from the few videos I've watched.  Games like MGSV have just taught me to immediately be skeptical of large open worlds.

  4. i just realized zazz stole crash bandicoot's hair

      I wish he stole his speech patterns, too.

  5. Just finished watching Stardust Crusaders.  I think it took me a lot longer than some other viewers, but partway through this season is when JoJo's finally clicked with me.  Once some of the cooler Stands started showing up, I basically went "oh, NOW I get it."  Still not my absolute favorite anime, but I'm definitely a fan.

    1. Josh

      Josh

      Maybe I'll give it a shot. Just finished part 2 and not into it much at all. It's not bad or anything but eh.

    2. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      Part 1 and 2 definitely didn't grab me despite a few good elements.  Even Part 3 didn't really do much for me at first, but eventually I got into it.  Gonna write up a quick review on it tomorrow, but in general I found the appeal to be in how the battles played out much like a guessing game.  The animation and character development wasn't really the draw so much as just the unpredictability of the conflicts.

      All in all it's honestly probably near the bottom of the tier of anime I've watched recently, but I've seen some amazing shit lately.  JJBA rarely AMAZED me, but Part 3 was a fun ride.

    3. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      You're gonna like Part 4 then. It improves on almost everything from Part 3, but especially the fight pacing and the absolutely ridiculous stand abilities.

    4. AxelPrime

      AxelPrime

      How far are you in part 3?

    5. Gregzilla
    6. AxelPrime

      AxelPrime

      I must've glossed over that detail, I'm sorry about that.

      Anyway I hope you do get the chance to see Part 4 because like Shaddy said it improves alot from Part 3.

  6. I'm totally fine with Zelda getting DLC later on, but I will not be pleased if it turns out the additional content was supposed to be in the base game and they just couldn't finish it in time.  If the base game is fully finished and this DLC is just extra then I'm down.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      If it isn't pointless guff that costs more than it should be or it's stuff that should be in the main game, that's fine.  Basically if it's made post game and reasonably priced according to the content 

    2. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      I just wish they would have announced it after the game came out

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      *it's not stuff

    4. JezMM

      JezMM

      I think they already confirmed this DLC was decided upon after the game went gold.

      Like, even if it is based off initially scrapped ideas from the main game, had they put it in the main game, we wouldn't be playing it on March 3rd.

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      I'd rather stuff supposed to be in the main game was in the main game instead of it being used to to justify why we should be happy since we're getting a game earlier than they planned now. If it indeed is cut content. Like I wouldn't have a problem waiting a few months for the FULL package 

    6. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      tbqh i dont know if i could have handled another delay

    7. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      Yeah, if it was cut and intended to be there in there in the first place then I would have rather had a delay.

      But if what Jez said is the case then it's fine.  If it's purely extra and was made to add onto the game rather than fill in missing pieces, I don't see a problem.

    8. JezMM

      JezMM

      Thing is though, what's the cut off point?  Developers will be getting new ideas all the time through development, the suggested scenario here is that these ideas emerged after the developers said "okay let's set these concepts in stone and get to creating/developing/finishing them".  Alternatively, they came up with concepts that just didn't comfortably fit into the overall experience they had laid out for the game, but they were "too good" to just be relegated to optional side content, so instead the developers, rather than shelving those concepts for the next game as they would've done in Zeldas past, simply shelved them and said "let's work on that once we've finished the rest of it and make it DLC" - more people are likely to play it than a side quest since it will be a big marketed thing, and it means these concepts get to thrive in the game they were envisioned for in their own way.

      We'll never know for sure, they could just as well be crooks lying through the teeth and have all the DLC in testing now or even ready to go 100%, but these are two potential scenarios for how DLC such as this could come about with them being honest about their reasons for making it DLC.

      Of course one could argue neither "good" scenario would prevent them from just adding it to the game as free updates, but that falls more under the conundrum of what monetary value any amount of game content has.

    9. KHCast

      KHCast

      The side quest method or maybe post game/free update methods I'd still see as more logical alternatives vs charging for content you already intended to be put in at some point. Lots of people are completionists, especially with Zelda, and many side quests in games actually have large story arcs of their own. Before DLC that was common

      That ones more a personal grip vs moral corruption. Now if it's the Capcom or Ubisoft method, then that's shit

    10. JezMM

      JezMM

      I guess for me the issue of charging for additional content will come down to - once I've had my fill of the base game's content as they release it - be that all of it or not - will I be able to say "I think I got my money's worth"?  I'd feel a bit awkward if my answer was yes initially then I changed it once I learned there had been more planned.

      Aunoma confirmed that the much sought after scrapped dungeons from Wind Waker wouldn't be included in HD because they got recycled into Twilight Princess - should they have sold TP for less to compensate for the "missing" content from WW, a game we paid full price for?  I felt I got my money's worth on both games, so much so I was happy to pay a second time on Wii U.

      I compare this DLC situation to that.

      And yes, lots of people do play side content in games, but maddening as it is to think about, most people don't.  Tons of people don't even finish the games they buy.  Just look at the global achievements statistics for ANY (reasonably popular) game on Steam.  For example, in Sonic Generations, only 53% of players even played as far as beating Sky Sanctuary.  It's tragic, but the fact is developers do have to think about what sort of content they make for the front-facing, most accessible part of the game.  And DLC that says "here it is, here's the new content, play it now!" is more accessible than side quests that have to be discovered at the player's own volition.

  7. for whatever reason I'm pretty hyped for Puyo Puyo Tetris.  only Puyo Puyo game i've played is Mean Bean Machine, so i'm excited to try a new entry

  8. Just went to GameStop to see if there was any luck with that random Switch pre-order giveaway thing.  Apparently not every store does it, and they were expecting some kind of email alert to tell them if/when they'll do it, which hadn't arrived yet.  Guess I'll just call them later and see what happens

    1. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      Ah, sorry for the misinformation then. I had no idea it was store specific :(

    2. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      Oh nah it wasn't your fault, it seems like the employees themselves weren't totally informed on what was happening

    3. Soni

      Soni

      Why is this Switch preorder giveaway even a thing? Why not just make preorders available to begin with instead of increasing a false sense of demand with scarce supplies, why is Nintendo being morons?!

    4. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      Nintendoes what logic don't 

  9. i keep hearing things that hype me up about the switch and i missed the preorders and they still aren't anywhere and i'm going nanners

    1. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      Just got an email from gamestop that if you go in on Saturday you might be selected to pre-order one. Did this thing really sell out that fast?

    2. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      i just saw that on twitter.  that seems kinda ridiculous but i'm getting antsy

    3. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      iirc Walmart intentionally limits pre-orders so they have stock for launch day so there's still a chance if you camp out

    4. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      i might just swing by gamestop tomorrow for the hell of it and see if it works, otherwise i'll just have to sit and hope

    5. Indigo Rush

      either way I'm not getting it until my tax return drops

      If you live in a big town, you got good odds. I live in a tiny town at the moment with a Hometown shopko as it's only place to get games at, and it Might get an allocation of switches

       

      Good thing I preordered on Amazon

      I preordered but I admittedly have second thoughts about getting it on day 1. But I want BotW and I want it for Switch, dangit. If I wait, it could be literal months before I get my hands on one.

      Its kinda exciting to think about how popular this thing is right now and nintendo's been doing a stellar job at advertising it, I think they might just hit it out of the park with this.

      Just the other day, still looking for Pre-orders, my brother says he looked at Walmart and they were available. Didn't believe him as I saw nothing about it, and as if he'd catch it while casually browsing, but checked a minute afterwards

      AND HE WAS RIGHT, THEY JUST UPDATED STOCK NOT A MINUTE AGO

      AND THEN

      "out of stock"

       

      8[

       

      Rumor is that the next shipment won't arrive till April... Dunno if I can wait that long for BotW, tbh...

  10. I think the Resident Evil Remake has the smartest jumpscare ever.  There's a normal door in a hallway that you can go through and pass tons of times, and then at one point really late in the game a zombie bursts out of it without warning.  There's basically no reason to suspect anything wrong with the door after you've gone through the area enough times, so it's a brilliant way to catch players off guard.

  12. Netflix is getting an animated Castlevania series, huh?  I imagine this'll either be really awful or really awesome, but best case scenario I hope we get some great artwork reminiscent of Ayami Kojima's work on the series.

      It's Konami, I'm sure they'll find some way to fuck it up...

      Was it confirmed to be animated? It could go either way tbh Netflix's original stuff are usually good or just average and the occasional really bad show which are targeted towards kids.

    5. Gregzilla

      Gregzilla

      Tbh when I heard "animated Castlevania series" my mind immediately exploded with possibilities, like maybe something with amazingly dark 2D animation like the HBO Spawn series.  The pessimist in me is expecting some lackluster CG and sticking closer to the lame Lords of Shadow series.

      I believe IGN's announcement defined it as animated

  13. why does elise look so much grosser than usual in that one cutscene where she bandages sonic's arm

    1. Briraka

      Briraka

      probably has something to do with that cutscene being one of those "CG, but still using game models" type of cutscene.

  14. okay jojo's bizarre adventure has way too much dog death

      Shaddy the guy

      Actually, I must amend that: Koichi's dog in Part 4 does not die. But he also never moves so for all we know he could be dead from the beginning

    4. Conando

      Conando

      Nah, Police is just a lazy mutt. The major animal deaths in part 4 are Bugeaten and Tama

    8. Princess Jellicent

      Princess Jellicent

      Yes Kars saved a dog and no other animals died in the the arc.

      Everyone else kills dogs for no reason. Sometimes even turn into dinosaurs for some reason.

    9. Remy

      Remy

      it's cuz if someone kills a dog you KNOW they're a really bad dude.
