      It's a trap

      Buy that one game you already bought again 

    4. Kiah


      Give me the money instead, please 😉

  3. I was at Books A Million yesterday and there was a manga called World's End Harem. 

    Wanna guess what's it about?

      Aussie slang for stuff that is suspect. I tend to use it to describe ecchi and porn.

  4. Was at a huge mall today, had no real desire to buy anything.

    1. Failinhearts


      Wish I had your willpower.

    2. MightyRay


      I can be like that at times. Sometimes it's nice just to wander about and just window shop.

    3. Boomer


      Your next step is to do that at a convention...

    4. Adamabba


      90% of the time I go to a mall the only thing I'll buy is food

    5. TCB


      @Boomer I already failed in doing that last month.

      @Adamabba Yeah did that

    6. Kiah


      What mall did you go to? I wonder if I’ve been there...and I’m not a big mall shopper. I like walking around and seeing if anything catches my eye aside from food lol. 

    7. TCB


      Tyson's Corner Center Mall or something like that @Kiah

    8. Kiah


      Ooh you went there?! I was in the Tysons area today!

      Oh man we could of met up had I known you were going to be there as I took today off!

    9. TCB



    10. Kiah


      My thoughts exactly. Don’t worry as we will meet up eventually...

      Only positive I can see from this missed opportunity it the fact that I was sick with food poisoning again and you wouldn’t of wanted to see me like that as I was some kind of miserable. 

    11. TCB


      Oh yeah I hear ya

  5. Idk why but it's feeling like Jump Force is its series Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, as far as character roster and art direction is concerned thus far.

  6. So there's this event called AnimeNYC happening next month...

    1. Strickerx5


      One of my friends have invited me to tag along with them to it but I'm still deciding whether it's worth it. I mean it's not really a money issue at the moment... more of a time one and whether it's literally worth it for me to go. Like, I don't really recognize any of the special guest, the panels aren't even up yet, and the one I usually already attend back in Chicago is generally 50% larger than it was in 2017 so it might be more low scale than I'm use to.

      Of course there's always the fact that I'm hanging out with a friend but even then they're going with their own group already and I could always just see them when I'm back in Chicago... which would literally be a week afterwards due to Thanksgiving...

      The only real upsides for this at the moment is A: the experience of simply going to a con in NYC and B: the off chance that I'll find something Kid Icarus related in the artist gallery. Oh, and of course the cosplay.

    2. TCB


      Just last month I attended New York Comic Con and its Anime Fest sub-convention. It's was technically the second con I been to (the first being Tora-Con all the way back in like 2013) but going to NYCC felt so much more special. Originally I wanted to go back home just for family, friends and take in the sights again, but my brother convinced me to go to NYCC too.

      Not only that, a couple of co-workers wants to go; they never been to NYC so I'm more than willing to come so be their 'guide's so to speak. Besides one of them was originally gonna come with us to NYCC but couldn't due to work commitments. So going to this one would make up for it.

    3. Treacher


      I might go to, but certain things came up lately, and I'm not sure if I can make it. Which is a bit disheartening since I live not too far from the city too. Aimer and Shintani are among my reasons to visit. Missed out on Comic-con too for similar reasons, but I did make it to the DMCV fan party.

  7. Say what you want about the quality of the Dreamcast games then and now, but I do kinda appreciate the lengths ST then went as far as inspiration went into them

    Like taking trips to Meso-America to visit Mayan ruins and such for SA1 or Sonic Team USA being inspired by their place of residence at the time translating into the game in a number of ways in SA2

    1. MegasonicZX


      Dreamcast in general had a lot of inspired and crazy ideas for the time it came out in (both in the games and in the system). By all rights it deserved to have way more success than it got and it will always be the greatest disaster in gaming that it never got the sales to kickstart sega into continuing with that same amount of inspiration.

    2. Dejimon11


      I wish that we could go back to that ST

    3. Tarnish


      It was SEGA at their financial worst, but creative best the way I see it.

    4. JezMM


      Eh, you could argue that it stifled their creativity just as much, both these games have had criticism levelled at them for feeling too much like Sonic in our world rather than his own.

      They do introduce more bombastic settings later in each game though so to be fair it's more like both games have a couple of stages where the fun aesthetic gimmick is the satisfaction of Sonic blasting through somewhere that feels familiar and relatable to our world.  Obviously they took that idea to it's extreme in Unleashed and considering it's my favourite 3D Sonic game, there's a definite appeal there.

  8. I haven't touched my Switch since I came back from New York about teo weeks ago. 

    I haven't touched my PS4 in like..a month and a half? That's life for you.

  9. I think I may take a break from drawing again, I'm getting far too negative about my skills in it and it's really getting to me.

    1. Kiah


      If you think that will help you in the long run then do it, I guess. 

      I’m no artist (anymore as I stopped drawing more than 2 decades ago and regrettably so) so I really don’t have any sound advice for you other than don’t take too long of a break and don’t give up on it entirely. 

      In the meantime maybe look into finding some pointers and techniques that you could and would want to incorporate into your art and improve your skills and maybe get you motivation to draw back. 

      Hope you get back to drawing again soon and try not to be so hard and critical on yourself, my friend. 

    2. TCB


      Thanks for the advice. 

  10. I'm in that frame of mind where I want to draw, but I'm putting down my artistic "skill" while comparing it to others again and being self conscious and therefore reluctant to actually draw again. 

    1. MegasonicZX


      I feel for you man. Even though people always say you shouldn't let the work of other people get to you since they had years of experience, it's hard not to feel like you aren't doing good enough when compared to other works out there.

    2. TCB


      Exactly. It's such a deterrent to your psyche it really affects your motivation and passion.

    3. Kiah


      I understand what you are going through but comparing yourself to others is a guaranteed yet inadvertent way to put yourself down. I know it’s a hard mentality to fight off but it needs to be done.

      If anythjng keep at it and seek ways to improve as there is always something to learn and improve on as an artist or anything else for that matter. That will never happen if you give up which you should never do. I did and a deeply regret it. I don’t want you to do the same. 

    4. DanJ86


      @TCB Don't do that, is the best advice I could give.

      What you really need to do is compare your work with your own. That's the best way to determine if you are getting better. Comparing your work to others is just asking for trouble. It's okay to aspire to it at some point, but you need to take small steps to get there.

      You can't do that if you find a way to put yourself down.

    5. TCB


      I understand where y'all coming from. This been a thing for the past six years on and off. It manifested a lot in the last few months since my 'hiatus' of it this past spring.

      Feels like stagnation on my part. My "skill" just isn't improving at a pace I want.

      Yes it is! And yes! In fact, I’m enjoying this nice Virginia weather with you! Or I was...

      Oh neat! There's one in Sydney too! What a sweet looking bookstore! My parents would be in book heaven if they got to go there.

    2. Fletch


      I always wanted to visit one, but since one isn't down where I live, always had to settle for getting my Japanese manga through Amazon JP. v__v

  22. At Nintendo NY right now. I miss this place.

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      Nintendo NY is probably as in my element as I am capable of feeling. Love that store, though my wallet hates it cuz whenever I go there I want to buy everything.

    2. Ferno
