  1. Did Adult Swim really air this a few days ago? Lol 


    1. Panda Claus

      As amusing as this is, they’re talking as if people actively campaigned for this or something, as opposed to just writing an online comment saying “I don’t like it” which takes less than a minute.

  2. SwSh might have new favorite Gym Leader battle music 

    no not the first one although that one good

  3. I dont even have my first badge and my main team are around lvls 18-20

    1. Kuzu



  4. This man speaks truth. 


    1. Teoskaven


      Definetly. Everyone complained about the trolley challenge while i breezed though that and instead couldn't complete the crystal popcorn challenges until years later.

    2. TCB


      The trolley was not that difficult for me either. At worst it was just simple trail and error with a little muscle memory but I cleared that relatively easily, especially in Reignited. 

  5. Do you name your player character in Pokemon after your actual name, or do you come up with an different one? 

    1. Zaysho


      Normally I use my own name, though when I was younger and first played Red/Blue, I sometimes used "Ash". Other than that, I purposely chose another name for White 2 because I knew about the memory link stuff with White 1 and it'd seem kinda awkward to use my name.

    2. TCB


      Side note since I actually have Sword now; the World of Pokemon intro is an actual cinematic cutscene huh. 


      ...And yet this would've been better with voice acting just on principle because I like this quite a lot, lol.

      I just use my online alias if I play as a boy, random girl names as a girl.

    4. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Usually "PC" for me.

      Unless I replay the game later on as a female trainer.

    5. Polkadi~☆


      Although I’ve never played Pokemon, I can say this much from my experience in other games:

      It feels awkward to use my own name.

    6. PaulyBFromDa303


      I use my own name. My rival is usually my roommate or my brother XD

    7. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      never use my "real" name ever

      I just go with whatever I think of to suit the character.

    8. Ferno


      I always used Ash as sort of a tradition born out of initial confusion (my first pokemon game was Crystal and I assumed that Red, Ethan, and Ash were all the same guy until I played further into the game and saw more of the anime, etc.) except in sapphire when I picked the girl and named her May. Been using different names besides Ash ever since White 2 tho. In Zelda games also, I just keep it as Link.

    9. Celestia


      I just use the "canon" names when possible. Same with any game that lets you name the player character(s).

    10. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      In Pokémon I always use my own name, because the character is so meaningless to the plot and the main purpose is for recording your Pokémon adventure. Unless I'm playing as the girl, in which case I use the default name. I don't like the name Alex, so I was really pleased when the games finally started to accept longer names and I could finally call myself Alexander.

      In any other game though, I tend to choose the default name. Like, how the fuck can you play Zelda with any name except Link? It just feels so wrong. And yet, I've seen plenty of people express disappointment over the fact that you can't pick a name in that BotW. 

      Typically I really dislike when games use audience insert characters. I don't enjoy avatars at all. Give me an actual protagonist, please.

    11. Strickerx5


      I usually just end up using “Stricker”.

    12. Failinhearts


      If I'm playing as a boy, I use my name. If playing a girl, I use the canon name.

    13. Winter Spirit Ultima

      Winter Spirit Ultima

      Sometimes different names.

      Like in White I chose Zuala. 

    14. Adamabba


      Ever since gen 6 I've used my name. For every gen I've played before that I just used the title of the gen thinking those were the canon names. Ofc that's only true for gen 1, but in my head Gold is still the canon name for the gen 2 protag.

    15. NegaMetallix


      It depends. Sometimes I use my real name, sometimes I don't.

      ...And then sometimes I go with the middle option and just stick with "Ash".

  6. post anime ops

      New Pokemon OP is pretty fun. (Shout out to the RBY wild encounter intro kicking in at around 3:40.)

    6. Wraith



  7. do you remember that phantasy star online 2 is coming to north america next year for PC/Xbone

    I did like, ten minutes ago


    1. E-van


      Do we know if it's coming to PS4 or not?

    2. TCB


      last I checked, it was just those two 

    3. Polkadi~☆


      i do remember

      the 21st night of september

    4. Thigolf


      And thanks to this, I remember that Sega and MS gave the entirety of Europe the middle finger.

      Thanks for that, MS & SEGA

  8. Wonder what @Kiah been up to. Hope she's okay herself.


    1. DanJ86
    2. Polkadi~☆


      I sure hope she's okay. The SSMB doesn't feel the same without her warm and friendly presence...

  9. It's been a whole weekend now. 

    What you think of them new Pokemon games

    .I still haven't got it yet I'm waiting til I get back from vacation

    1. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Not worth the price. Save money or get something else.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Best Pokémon games in a while. But that's not a particularly high bar. The games are laden with problems that Pokémon has had for years. Game Freak doesn't have the ambition/desire to makes Pokémon live up to its potential. It's purely seen as a cash for to be milked.

    3. TCB


      Is it worth the 40-45 I can get for it once I return home then?

    4. TCB


      @Blue Blood Man reading that on a site like this is hillaously ironic.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Lol yeah you can just replace Pokémon with Sonic and Game Freak with Sonic Team. That wasn't intentional, but it is apt.

    6. Polkadi~☆


      It's because of Sonic Forces that I knew exactly where the whole SwSh debacle was headed.

      I just kept my distance this time, because I can't be bothered.

    7. Kuzu


      They're Pokemon games, take it or leave it.

  10. Day 2 of AnimeNYC 

  11. Is there a silver lining in the SwSh's permaEXP spread in that I don't have to train a core six member team and can instead rotate em around? 

    1. Ferno


      The only positive I see for it personally is that I, in my busy adult life can now finish core Pokemon games faster than ever. But I still don't like it beyond that.

    2. Zaysho


      To be fair, that could be done with the optional one.

  12. Day one of AnimeNYC was nice. Isn't that right @Dejimon11

  13. If Sword/Shield doesn't force you into a long winded catching tutorial it's already a 10/10 game for me

    can anyone confirm this

    1. Bobnik


      It doesn't even ask you if you want a tutorial if you catch pokemon before said tutorial. 

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      You have PokéBalls the first time you step in to a route. In the next city, someone will give you a catching tutorial of you've not caught anything. But if you have, they just go "cool youre not an idiot have fun I wont waste your time patronising you".

    3. Thigolf


      Where did you guys get Pokeballs

      I feel like an idiot now

    4. TCB


      I want this game in my hands so bad 

  14. The Yakuza games are gonna be on Xbone too now


    1. Thigolf


      I always thought it was weird that Sega kept their mascot off of XBox for so long

    2. Menace2Society


      Are they exclusively on Game Pass or...?

  15. The only silver lining I see for myself regarding Sword and Shield is that I can get for roughly  cheaper at Walmart here with a family's discount and the game itself being $50 base price, so itll be like 45ish dollars

    1. Strickerx5


      Around the $40 range is where it should be tbh.

  16. Yo I cant stress enough how much Marza is killing it with the Lupin movie 


    1. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      Good god that is some elite CG....

      Haven't they been working on this sucker for like, 5 years now tho?

    2. TCB


      Have they? Man they must have really been trying to get the CG as pristine as possible while remaining faithful to the source. Were there setbacks in production or something? 

    3. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      It might not have been quite that long, but its been a while. I remember the rumors flying around from before they were even connected to the Sonic movie.

      I don't think it got delayed either. Marza just takes their dear sweet time with most of their stuff.

      If the end results look that good, hey they can take twice as long for all I care.

  17. is Tyson Hesse the ultimate ascended Sonic fan

    1. Polkadi~☆


      He has ascended far higher than the likes of Ian Flynn.

      I think Hesse is now at the top.

    2. Ferno


      He'll go way beyond sonic now if he wants. He's gonna be noticed by Hollywood as a whole now. Maybe even get his original Diesel comic project made into a movie/ show at this point.

    3. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      I'd say its either Hesse or Lopes.

  18. These renders are beautiful. 


  19. I'm hearing much more things about Pokemon Sword and Shield like really poor optimization, handheld mode issues and now that some of the cut Pokemon actually has data in the games with no way to access without hacking...

    I'm really debating on getting this day one

    There are clearly things about these games whom issues have only exasperated in the last month or so. It's hard for me to put down $60 day one when, for Pokemon, these issues have cropped up so much so fast even I feel conflicted about it.

    That, and I'll be in New York at a convention during so I'll probably won't buy day one anyway. 

    1. Soniman


      You going to anime NYC too? Radical 

    2. TCB


      @Soniman Wait


      You're going? 



    3. Soniman


      Friday and Saturday! Gonna go to the concert and all the dealer rooms, really hyped for it 👍

    4. TCB


      Hey let's try to meet up if you want 

  20. We aren't living in a gangster's paradise anymore. I'm sad.

  21. The Sonic movie is out today guys wooo

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Place yer bets, new trailer dropping today?

    2. Celestia


      Yeah I just saw it, it was awesome. Wish there were more Tom the Cop scenes though

    3. Ferno


      they rushed it in places, there was a scene where sonic t-posed for 5 whole seconds it was very noticable

      and then Tom t-posed too, like, I didn't even know he was CGI as well- he looked so real, now we know where the budget went

    4. Polkadi~☆


      i saw it, better than the godfather

    5. Polkadi~☆


      double post

    6. JezMM


      I know Sonic and Tom bonded a lot over the course of the movie but I do feel the very end was kind of pandering and unnecessary, the kiss just came out of nowhere.

  22. Richard Jacques just buried the hell out of that Can You Feel the Sunshine remix SEGA put out, damn. 

    The YouTube version does credit him and the SST though so...whew where this coming from Mr. Jacques? 

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Where did he say it?

      EDIT: Just found it on his Twitter. Yikes, he's pissed.

    2. TCB


      TJ Davis said she liked it, and Lee responded by thanking her while throwing a little shade at Richard too, oh my.

    3. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      He's also been very rude about the actual composition. If he didn't like it, fair enough but no need to attack Tee personally.

    4. Sean


      Fuck off, old man

    5. Zaysho


      Jacques leaning into Lopes like that is a little too reminiscent of Penders trashing Flynn and Yardley's work. Just makes him look like a bitter has-been. If he has a problem with Sega he should be complaining about them but accusing Lopes of trying to get clout off this is fucking embarrassing.

    6. Kuzu


      Oh, he's a fucking Boomer

    7. Winter Spirit Ultima

      Winter Spirit Ultima

      @Zaysho I had the same thought dang man

  23. Got my AnimeNYC badge, bless

  24. Instead of just eating tacos...let's just talk...o
