  1. Finished the Testfire.

    Fun, but being a complete newbie had predictable results, though I did get a few splatters and did win a couple of matches.

    Plus the connection was stable throughout.

  2. Has anyone done a Splatoon Testfire before?

      QuantumEdge

      Yes, with the first one.  It was a hoot fighting players who had the same skill as you :P

      I played the original. It was good fun, though with all the inexperience around Rollers had the upper hand on everything.

    So either Han Solo got his name in the metaphorical "I've always had the name but now people know it" sense, or they mean "Han Solo isn't his real name"?

    Da hell?

      As if this spin-off couldn't seem any stupider...

      It's sad because it's being written by Lawrence Kasdan (and his son), the guy who co-wrote Episodes 5, 6 & 7.

      I'm not a huge fan of Lord & Miller, but I'm pretty sure they won't be as daft as to retcon Han's name.

      I'd like to think so, but regardless the whole idea of it just seems pointless and a potential cringefest.  I can think of a hundred different, more interesting spin-off ideas instead of a young Han Solo.

      His actual name is Han Drumpf.

  4. Just saw The Swan Princess.

    If this is the best of these films, I hate to see the worst ones...

      Yeah this is going a bit too far, honestly.

      Beat me to it, but I didn't think they'd actually go and do this. Granted I'm sure it's not much of an issue swapping out his random grunts.

      Doesn't effect me either way. The fact is they didn't "Have" to do anything. He was a contracted voice for a small role in the game, he did not reflect on them, and the work was done years ago. People saying they had to do it were a bit overzealous.

      I fail to see how political views would affect a video game but damn.

      Jon really F*CKED up..

      Honestly, I'm actually kinda bummed out about this.

    8. Hero

      It's probably a bit far but JonTron's damaged his own reputation, something like this was inevitable. 

    9. KHCast

      KHCast

      I don't see how people are saying this is too far. Actors get roles taken away when controversial shit they say stirs big time, singers get dropped, etc. I say karmas a bitch ain't it 

      People like jontron should feel the sting of what they say. Consequences are there for a reason. They shouldn't get to say what they want and not see effects

      @Dee Dude "I fail to see how political views would effect a movie."

      "I fail to see how political views would effect a sports player"

      "I fail to see how political views would effect tv show"

      the list can go on

      Also it's really a political view to say minorities taint the gene pool.

    10. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      I probably worded that wrong.

      It's merely a case of "separate art from the artist" at play. Some people can do it, some people can't, but there's definitely an effect that can take place and distance some from their enjoyment, even if the product is still good 

    12. Boomer

      Personally I think it's too far myself, especially since it was a bit part character wherein the actual voices are garbled BK style. The only way the average joe would even find out it was JonTron is if they looked in the credits.

      I mean, yeah, if it was some other media where the voice audio wasn't processed or he was singing, where he was recognisable, then that'd be a problem.

    13. KHCast

      Again, that isn't really explaining how given what he's done, it's too far to do this since this is really the only thing he could experience as a "backlash". I mean if this is too far, god help us if he starts getting sponsorships dropped. He's a celebrity, he's widely known, doesn't matter how small the role may be, to a company, a widely known guy like jontron being associated with them even in a small role is a big deal since people WILL know about their association with him

      If Jon had turned his main channel into politics, I could understand the way people are acting. But he literally tried to avoid bringing it to his channel and only did so when basically 90% of the net was against him, so he had to defend himself somehow. Are his views fucked up? Yes, but he's been trying to separate his personal life from the show, and yet others can't seem to do the same and turned this into an amazing and unnecessary shitshow.

    15. KHCast

      KHCast

      That's what happens when the cat gets out of the bag. Everyone when they're caught with their pants down tries to ignore what was said, or separate their "politics"(racism =\= politics people) from their entertainment, but people aren't obligated to pretend what was said won't have a negative effect on their outlook of the person and their content, and businesses will do what they can to distance themselves from the shitshow.

      It's called consequences. And this isn't even Jontrons first offense, so really it's been a long time coming 

      And instead of defending himself maybe acknowledge that what you said is shitty, and sincerely apologize, hey that's an idea 

    16. Ratcicle King

      Ratcicle King

      That is honestly the problems I have with politics nowdays tho'.

      No one can simply accept different views anymore, you gotta constantly attack whatever you believe is wrong, that is a very violent mindset. Is he wrong? Absolutely. Is this going to change anything? Honestly not, you can't change someone's views like that, heck, sometimes you can't change someone's views period, attacking and hurting his career will have the oposite effect honestly. You can't educate a child on something wrong if they don't even get WHY they're wrong, just that ''You're wrong, fuck you''

      I know, no one here is Jon's parents, we don't need to babysit him or educate him on this shit, but that's why there's a wonderful thing called ignoring, which is the exact oposite of what the entire internet's been doing for the past week.

    17. KHCast

      KHCast

      When those views are very personal and hateful/bigoted, I don't blame people for "accepting those views". And really your point boils down to "let them say what they want and have no repercussions or consequences" which lol, sorry isn't how things work. If Will Smith said "f*gs are cancer to this country" are people really gonna get upset if he got dropped from men in black 10.

      *for not 

      Also, people told him why he's wrong, gave him evidence supporting their claims, and he still stands by what he's said. So...seems more like stubbornness than people not telling Jon why he's wrong 

      Companies have a right to distance themselves from things they don't personally believe or want to support, it's hypocritical to say otherwise when we tout freedom of speech and freedom of expression all the fucking time 

    18. Ratcicle King

      And yet it is completely ok for people to attack him, rally more and more people against him and viciously wish for his career to end or wish death on him. Really, going full extreme won't solve the problem, and honestly being happy that he lost his chance to be a part of the game (which btw, was not because Playtonic disagreed, but to detach themselves from the shitstorm upon him, for all we know they got similar views but keep their mouths shut) doesn't really paint everyone else in a much better light. Guy just lost the chance of being a part of something that was a big part of his childhood, but hey, his ideals aren't right so fuck him, he deserves all spite in the world.

      But honestly, I don't want to make this into a heated argument or anything, so I'll probs stop discussing after your next answer, I kinda wanted to avoid politics and general controversies like that but this honestly got a bit on my nerves so I couldn't hold back. I apologize if anything here offended anyone.

    19. KHCast

      KHCast

      You seem to be applying what I've said to some non-existent extreme end that no one ever brought up. No ones wishing the death of his career, no ones wanting people to rally against him and bully him, but for this to be a wake up call. Again CONSEQUENCES, is that concept like lost in this era or something? 

      And whethervthey morally we're against it or not isn't the point, as a business they still have a right to sever ties so as to not be affiliated with the controversy.

      I mean yeah, you say things that offend and generalize groups of people, and come off hateful, repercussions, especially here in America, will happen, doesn't matter how important this was to his childhood. That shouldn't give you a pass to openly express views that ARE attacks and can impress younger audiences 

      It's not a respectable opinion to hold in this age in which equality is fought for

      @Lucid Dream Maybe as a spin-off focusing on the Homeworld Gems or something.

      They see what we consider good as evil.

      Honestly, if there's one thing I've learned from the SEGA vs Level-5 case is that people like to falsely accuse other people, so I'm not taking his word, as those lines he mentions could just as easily been thought up by others. Not to mention by that logic Chris Sanders should sue Disney for Bolt. If you don't want studios to use ideas than you should copyright them, otherwise it's fair game.

      They were also accused of "stealing" Frozen a few years back as well.

  7. Considering the "Nintendoomed" vibe, I can only imagine the reactions if a major tentpole game of theirs gets a bad critical reception...

  8. I'm just wondering whether the mere presence of Tails and Knuckles in Mania will get the game marked down by "those" critics.

    Or if it's just gonna be the whole "It's fine if 2D does it but not 3D thing"

      It could go either way.

      it'll probably be fine because they won't suck to play as or be obnoxious in the cutscenes

  9. So Free Fire and Ghost in the Shell come out next week.

    Gonna make a double booking for next Saturday.

  10. Guys, Discord is about to tell us where the treasure is!

    It's right in the middle of-- *drops*

  11. Just re-watched the SOUE 2004 film.

    Decent, fun film, but man it's a pretty rushed adaptation.

    Seriously, the 2nd (190-page) book is done in like 17 minutes. Yeah, I timed it.

  12. People say it's hard to ask someone out on a date, which it is.

    But in my personal view, asking someone you know online if they just wanna go out as mates is harder.
