  1. They got Lee Tropes to work on some of TSR's music too? 

    Thank you Jun.

  2. ...Ok I wasnt expecting this much snowfall.

    1. Kiah


      I wasn’t expecting any but this is Virginia weather we are talking about here...

      How much snow did you all get? And is it raining on your end?

    2. TCB


      They said about 5 inches...but it honestly looks like its more. Its funny, last year this city prepared like crazy for the first snowfall but we barely got anything. I barely saw any real work done on the roads for this one.

    3. Kiah


      Oh man...we got 2 inches over here in Alexandria at the most. Then the rain washed most of it away. 

      As for the snow preparation Fairfax County don’t play so they as always prepared and often overprepared at that. 

  3. Having never played the original version of their respective first games, im enjoying Reignited Spyro 1 far more than N.Sane Crash 1.  Even though I'm far more used to Ripto Rage's overall better moveset.

    1. Yeow


      I've played the originals and so far it's the same thing for me.

      I completed Crash 1 first and I'm still trying to get through Spyro 1, but Crash 1 is seriously rough with its design choices (namely the way it handles save states, its controls, and especially the design for some of its levels). Spyro 1 is a more polished game IMO.

    2. Dejimon11


      @Yeow it also helps that Spyro 1 is a significantly easier than Crash 1

  4. Disney BTFO.

    The mouse fears the electric rat.

      This is deja vu.

      Remember when Yokai Watch was the one going to top Pokemon? Now its Pokemon doing the same with Disney this time!

      What a weird time repeats thing.

    2. SupahBerry


      Of course the one that gets more views in the one that doesn't relie on Your Mom jokes

      @Crow the BOOLET

      Remember when Star Wars got trampled by Yokai Watch movies?

      Disney is getting smoked by Japan

      Oh my god watching Disney get desparate is quite entertaining

      I... don't think animated trailers can be made that fast, lol

      The funny thing is, Disney's Marvel branch is going to bury the Pokemon movie via Avengers.

      They will get their revenge.



    7. Ferno


      this forum pretty much made me numb to the word "reaction" so disney's alledged plans are foiled

    8. Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      @Sega DogTagz I dunno. Considering how Pokemon as a franchise makes more money than even the MCU, and its not like they're competing genres. 

    9. Sega DogTagz

      @Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      @Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      Tentpole movies cannibalize everything around them with few exceptions. And movies dont get much bigger than the Avengers.

      And while they may not be competing genres, there is a decent amount of overlap in terms of fanbase. Its going to handcuff the Pokemon movies overall sales and going to absolutely bury it in the box office

    10. KHCast


      @The Deleter no, but I doubt they intended to release the second one a day after the first one 

    11. Ferno


      pikachu will crush thanos

    12. KHCast


      Mother fucker couldn’t even take on galeem lol

    13. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      We've had multiple movies release multiple versions of trailers and clips in the same time-frame as these were, I dunno why another teaser trailer is anything that crazy. Gives them more promotional material for new movies and social media.

      I mean... That's the obvious conclusion to jump to imo. Trailers for trailers sake. Not a fun one, no, but it's pretty self evident. Movie trailers overlap with one another all the time for some reason, like when the bumblebee/Lego movie/Wreck it Ralph trailers dropped, and companies are trying to push more incremental teasers harder and harder as time goes on. It's mega boring, but I mean good gravy are the memes that worthwhile that there has to be page-long discussions about it on Resetera and twitter? I don't get it

  5. I wanna be home and play Spyro. 

  6. ...Because of Amazon's screwup, I got charged twice for essientially the same product in two different formats.

    Naturally I was pissed. So I called their customer service. Will be refunded for both. 

    So I'll just get the game in-store.

    1. Operationgamer17


      Spyro Reignited Trilogy?

    2. TCB
    3. Kiah


      Sorry that you got inconvenienced but that’s good it got resolved quickly.

      I had to jump through hoops with Amazon to finally get my Sonic Mania Collectors Edition which literally took months due to complications from me moving after preordering the thing. But at least I was satisfactorily compensated for my troubles after all was said and done. 

  7. The friend will take getting used to but a live action/CGI movie is making me feel more hype for my first childhood gaming series than any of its own movies not since...like the second movie. The atmosphere, look, tone; all that feels like the Pokemon world put into our own. 

  8. Why is Jigglypuff furry 

    It's supposed to be the Balloon Pokemon

    This series has spoiled me

    1. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I mean in the show it was a Baloon, but it clearly has hair too? I mean that's what that curl is right? ...I mean I understand how they reached this conclusion...

      You may wanna look a few statuses down lol

    2. Perkilator


      Danny DeVito, tho…

  10. When you working and not in a positive mood all day and see a happy couple holding hands in your aisle and it makes you feel even more worthless and lonely you feel like crap and have to endure that sight for like five minutes 

    1. KHCast


      Similar for me. But it’s more, “when you’re gay and single, in retail, and constantly reminded you’re in a world with mostly straight people by straight couples walking in and out of your store, and you wish the guys you check out were into men, but realize how low the chance a guy you like is gay or even bi and interested back.” hell, I’d just feel more comfortable if I lived in a area where I could see some happy gay couples holding hands and expressing their love for eachother every now and then 

    2. TCB





    3. Kiah


      I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve had those moments in the last 15 years...I definitely empathize with you. 

      But try hard to fight those feelings of worthlessness as you aren’t worthless by any means. Whether you are in a relationship or not has no relevance on the matter.

      I’ve said this to you before but your time will come. You are too kind of a person with several other fine qualities not to see you being in a relationship. I could be wrong but I just don’t see that happening.  

      Just keep being you and being the best you can be and make sure you are content being by yourself and work on getting to that point. That will make things even better when that special someone does come along in your life. 

      Keep your head up and feel better, my friend. 

    4. KHCast


      Uhhh....maybe I was a bit of a downer in my post. Apologies. 

    5. TCB


      @Kiah Thanks for the words, really. After today I need some kind of positive enforcement no matter how much my emotions want to say otherwise.


      @KHCast it's cool hahaha. 

  11. I had like three people in the last two days ask if I got RDR2 yet.


  12. I dont know if it's due to how I was feeling coming off from last night, but its like im either a nuisance, somoene who isn't smart or informative enough to be in the "in-crowd" (or whatever the hell that is), or just insignificant being around here.

    1. Kiah


      Did anything happen for you to start feeling this way?

      You being a nuisance or not smart enough isn’t true in the slightest. As for the informative thing that could always change with some observation like the statuses for example.

      With the “in-crowd” and insignificant thing I wouldn’t dwell on it too much. Just be you. However it wouldn’t hurt to interact with others more as could help you feel more included and can even lead to getting to know them better and that could lead to friendships.

      I’ve said this to you before but you really don’t give yourself enough credit and don’t focus on your positive traits which you definitely have. I’m not saying toot your own horn but you need to think more highly of yourself, my friend.

      Hope that was of some help and I hope you feel better soon. 

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Ehhhh... I'm not sure what's going on. I wouldn't worry about it too much if I were to be honest but that's personally because I don't care what people think of me any more.

      Just don't be hard on yourself.

  13. ...I work on Thanksgiving. :')

    I-I hope I can at least take advantage of some of those video game deals....

    1. Kiah


      I work on Thanksgiving too. Wanted to take off this year as I’ve worked 15 of them in a row but they need a bookkeeper so tag I’m it!

      I just took a glance at the Black Friday AD and yeah some of those deals are really good...I’ll look at it in full detail later and see if I can get someone to go for me lol. 

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Kiah Blimey, where do you work? Has it been the same job for 15 years?

    3. Kiah


      @Blue Blood I work at a grocery store. I work a whole bunch of different positions aside from what I was hired for being a cashier but yes, I’ve been at the same job for 15 years!

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      And they've had you work Thanksgiving so many years in a row? I would expect them to try to be fairer handing out the shifts over holidays year after year, especially after you've given them so many years of loyal service. That blows.

    5. Kiah


      @Blue Blood management here is rather cruddy. And because I’m trained in so many key positions they tend to be too dependent upon me. They could care less about loyalty but I can’t complain too much as I have that time and a half pay to shut me up lol. 

  14. Crazy.

    What else SEGA got in their warehouse or achieves they just got lying around under dust and animal droppings I wonder.


    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Sonic was living in that warehouse

    2. Thigolf


      Oooh, me want!


  16. This whole time I thought I have already preordered Smash Ultimate oops

  17. When review embargo lifted for Spyro Reignited, the day before? This weekend

  18. How big is Smash Ultimate's file size anyway

    1. KHCast


      Not as big as spyros probably lol

    2. JosepHenry


      Around 15gb?

      Thats quite small compared to games nowdays (im talking to you NDR2hundredgigabytes)

      Mario Odyssey was 5.7gb and that still baffles me

    3. TCB


      Smash 4 Wii U has a similar file size...wow that surprised me. Considering how massive the content this game has compared to its predecessor thats something else.

    4. Sean


      not as big as your mom's

    5. JosepHenry


      Did Polkadi give two promotions to the mom reply

    6. Adamabba


      polkadi is tcb's mom who is so fat his reaction had to be doubled

    7. Celestia


      I think I heard it's slightly smaller than Sm4sh for Wii U? Funny if true

    8. Polkadi~♪


      ...Huh...? That's weird, I didn't even know that was possible. The website was lagging a little bit, so it said my reaction didn't register. Guess it did, twice...

      @Adamabba That hurts! 😭

    9. TCB
    10. Blacklightning


      Bear in mind that most of the filesize streamlining is probably down to replacing 3D trophies with 2D spirits. Not that it doesn't help that they serve an actual narrative and gameplay function now.

    11. Yeow


      @Sean you owe royalties to @Soniman now

  19. Contemplating switching my preorder of Spyro Reignited Trilogy to digital. Same for Smash Ultimate...

    1. KHCast


      Why digital for smash?

    2. TCB


      Ease of access mostly, ya know instead of of swapping the cartridge every time when I'm traveling or whatever 

      I got a large enough sd card for it


  20. Pls 


    Make the next Kirby game 3D 

    Triple Deluxe was on the verge of that greatness 

    Star Allies has that beautiful graphics engine and like, the endgame world map and boss be in full 3d planes

    Pls Hal labs 



    1. Dejimon11


      I felt like Blow out blast was them testing the waters 

    2. TCB


      It was they have a base right there hnnnng

  21. I'm not aware of this situation with Diablo. 

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Imagine if you were invited to a fancy dinner (Blizzcon) that you had to pay a big amount of cash to go to, including accommodations and travel (a few hundred bucks for tickets), and then when you got there the big dinner (big event) you were promised turns out to be a badly made sandwich (people expected AAA tier game, got a cheap mobile f2p game with implied heavy microtransactions) that it turns out was actually bought from a cheaper restaurant (not even made by Blizzard, but by a Chinese company known for cheap pay 2 win games) and covered with the fancy dinner brand. And then the hosts snidely asked why you cared since you’re still getting something (they stupidly wondered why people were mad since didn’t everyone have phones to play them).

    2. Yeow


      not familiar with diablo, but based on the details / context that has been explained...

      short answer: blizzard pulled a metroid prime federation force except somehow even worse than that

      long answer:

      fans of the diablo series have been wanting a new diablo product for years since diablo iii was released (a new sequel / diablo iv specifically)

      blizzard teases a big diablo-related reveal for blizzcon months before the event

      blizzcon is pretty much comic-con of all things blizzard (you also have to pay to even see it livestreamed, let alone be able to attend; and attending blizzcon certainly does not come cheap); it's a definition of a fanboy event

      the teased diablo product, saved at the end of the conference (IIRC), turns out to be...a mobile game

      for a series that's historically been developed for pc platforms first

      the stage presenters also said it's not planned to be released for the pc when asked about it; "do you guys not have any phones?" [actual quote from presenters]

      and not just a mobile game, a free-to-play mobile game developed by tencent; rather than made in-house by blizzard themselves

      tencent is notorious for exploiting the absolute worst stigmas people accuse FTP mobile games of being (namely of trying to nickel and dime their customers to the hilt)

      and this is the game they announced as their big diablo project

      to an audience of hardcore diablo fans

      so from there, you can do the math to see how that went down among the fans

      (not joking: someone in the audience when handed the mic actually asked "is this an off-season april fools joke?")

      (oh, and blizzard just a couple of weeks before the event said "don't expect diablo iv". but the damage was already done if whoever was in charge didn't see this coming)

    3. Polkadi~♪


      Primarily PC fanbase of Diablo gets teased with a new game, which Blizzard keeps hinting at over the coming months to Blizzcon.

      Come Blizzcon, the convention for dedicated fans of the company that many attend to see their new content, and most of those fans are PC gamers...

      Blizzard begins talking about a new Diablo game, closing off the opening ceremony with their grand announcement of:

      Diablo: Immortal, coming to your phones! The crowd is confused.

      Q&A time at a later panel. “Is this coming to PC?” asks an attendee.

      “No,” the devs answer, to be met with jeering. Laughing, they ask the crowd, “Do you not have phones?” to an audience that prefers to play on PC.

      From another attendee, now celebrated by the community for asking, “Is this an out-of-season April Fools joke?”

      The game itself was outsourced to a Chinese company, meaning it has none of the Blizzard touch and lacks their level of quality. And it's also an asset swap of another one of the company's games, meaning no effort was put into it.

      There was meant to be a Diablo 4 announcement at the con, but Blizzard backed out at the last moment. Though, this could just be a PR statement meant to save face.


      All in all, a shocking case of misreading and misunderstanding your audience.

      ...I was late to the party, it seems.

    4. TCB


      ....Holy crap.

    5. SupahBerry


      Brings to mind how EA's Battlefront 2 led to the most downvoted comment in all of Reddit.

      To quote the AVGN...

      They also showed the first cutscene with the Sorceress.


    2. TCB




  24. 24 hours from now will be a real test of my sanity. 

    1. Kiah


      Why’s that? Is everything okay?

    2. TCB


      It's election day

      Media gonna be everywhere harping on it

      The one thing you won't be able to get away from no matter how hard you try


    3. Kiah


      Oh that’s right. I’ve been through much more stressful and irritating situations recently so this is tame in comparison to me. 

      Just try to establish a blackout the best you can.
