  1. Who did I vote for? Guess. No I'm dead serious I voted for Anthony. I think of all the franchises in Smash Metroid is the most deserving of a new playable fighter. With Ridley and Dark Samus out of the question I could think of no better option than Anthony Higgs (would of settled with Adam, but I like Anthony more).
  2. Who did I vote for? Guess, if you can remember him.

  3. But guys, I already have my Ganondorf amiibo
  4. When I die I hope this song will be played at my funeral.
  5. I'll admit, I've not played this game, I've only watched this video and tried to form an opinion from that, but I'm not convinced. It is good that they don't make any real awareness to her gender, but that raises the question of who really cares about a gender of a character, or why this complete lack of care to gender really warrants a video like this? Heck I love Metroid to the Moon and back but even I will admit Samus, whilst she is a decent example, wouldn't daresay she's the best, especially in Other M (but that's a different can of worms). At least to me, to like a character is to have characteristics, I just can't see the appeal in complete blank slate characters, this goes for male characters as well. That being said I feel as if I've been fairly ignorant of the topic on The Scythian, as really I've only made my assumptions on this video, of which Anita does say that she is a blank slate, and whilst she does say the character does state her thoughts and opinions, Anita doesn't show an example of it, leading me to believe otherwise. You guys have explained this better than Anita has, I'll admit it's opened my eyes a little.
  6. Guys, did some of the comments from the "Dear Internet, Grow Up" thread get deleted?

      I think they got moved over to the FF: Positive Female Characters thread.

  7. I'm looking at the current members online. I'd like to know Yahoo, Google and Youtube. Are they nice?

      Yahoo has said some pretty nasty things, I'm they haven't been banned.

      Google is cool but they have tendency to follow everyone everywhere.

  8. LET'S TALK ABOUT MUSIC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kX_b4uPRkk
  9. Maybe I said it a lil' harsh, I'm not saying it's a bad song and doesn't deserve the praise it gets, I'm just saying I think there's better songs in Sonic 3.
  10. I don't think Ice Cap Zone is nearly the best tack in Sonic 3, I'd rather give that to Hydrocity Zone or Carnival Night Zone. I'll say it's my favourite level, music wise though? Nuh-uh.
  11. Do you ever feel Angry? Are you paralyzed by your Anger?

      Makes me want to bite someone until they bleed.

  12. Look I'll agree that The Scythian isn't a bad example, but should she really be regarded as one of the best? Because what I got from this is that to make a great female character is to make her a completely blank slate with no personality or any immediate features that could indicate she's a female other than people telling you she is. The whole "you can project yourself on the character" doesn't quite work too considering what if it's a guy playing and the game is telling you you're a girl. yeahsurethatsokayiguess Anita makes the Metroid ending comparison a few times without really acknowledging why that ending was taken the way it was. The ending was a surprise, one that would forever change the way people think of video game protagonists, it got people to warm up to the idea that females are just as good as males. The Scythian however? It's because we're always given subtle hints about the gender it doesn't faze anyone nearly as much. However I suppose if there were no hints at all it would just be a reveal at the end that The Scythian was female all along it would be branded either a "homage" or "rip-off" or Samus. But the way Anita describes it is that having no personality or not drawing attention to the fact your character is female makes a great female character, which is incorrect. tl;dr Samus did it first
  13. Musical perfection

  15. I watched the 20min preview and I was genuinely surprised of how nicely this has come together, even if it's just a WIP. Keep up the good work, man. Can't wait to see more.
  16. In Metroid: Other M 2 you can only play as Anthony, AND IT WILL BE AWESOME!

      People thinking that Anthony is a cool character must be some inside joke I'm not getting

      I like him unironically tho

  17. In Mario Kart 9 you do not actually race. Instead you get to choose from a selection of palette swaps and watch your favourite racers race! Every character gets a Baby and a Metal form, as well as Old Aged, Hand Puppet and Appliances! Get ready to watch your favourite characters like Baby Toaster Mario and others race at 50cc!

  18. In StarFox Wii U there's a new gauge for fuel. You will need to keep an eye out for this gauge as you could run out of fuel in the middle of a dogfight! And that's not all, when you re-fuel you must make small talk with the handyman at the Space gas station. Say the right things and he will attempt to convince the cashier to charge you for less, fail and he'll screw over the Arwing somehow. Remember you can only re-fuel so many times. Once you can no longer refuel, Fox immedia...

  19. Also in Mario Party 11 the car will return, every player rolls at the same time and controls each wheel. This'll require a lot of team effort to make it work, so they've made it so the CPU will always go the opposite direction you will want to go. You can upgrade your wheel to bigger sizes and traction, but this more than likely will screw you over somehow, good thing it's mandatory to upgrade every turn!

  20. In Mario Party 11 Bowser Party returns, he will have 4 dice to roll on his turn. If he rolls a number which is more that how many spaces are on the board he will gain two more dice rolls on the same turn. There's only one Bowser minigame though, and it involves choosing the right outfit for Bowser to wear at the Koopa School Dance. Fail and your next dice roll will add to his next turn.

      why did I laugh at this

  21. I'm sure you guys love Knuckles' Themes and We are Burning Rangers, but have you heard any of Marlon Saunders solo stuff? The guy has some good talent which I feel is quite overlooked

      When you killed my brother, you talked just like that.

  23. Right, been playing a Nuzlocke run of Pokémon White. Never done a Nuzlocke run before, so here's a brief synopsis. "Well, looks like my Trainer ID ended in 9, yes! Love me some Oshawott (Nicknamed "Riptide") Okay, lemme smack these two rivals into- DID THAT FRIGGIN TEPIG CRIT ME?! YOU MOTHAFUOPIOQPQWI-" Restart "Okay, let's see. Oh neat! ended in 9 again, don't fail me Riptide Jr! Good to see that my rivals aren't complete arsewipes this time. Route 1, Oh god, there's Patrats everywhere, I'm going to get a Patrat aren' Ooohhh! A Lillipup! Okay Chips, let's begin you're training! Level 2 Patrat? No prob- BULLSHIT. Jeez these crits just love to fuck with me, don't they? Who is this Limey bastard and why can he talk to Riptide Jr? Could you leave him alone? I've only had him for 10 minutes and he's already seen some shit. Route 2, I suppose there's no harm in a Chips Jr is their? Or maybe a Purrloin, that would be bitc- Oh, look it's a Patrat, this smug lil' bastard is going to pay for what he did to my precious Chips. This smug, "Scout Pokémon" reminds me of something, you'll be called "Bonk!" from now on.... Oh, you're actually lasting quite well, two levels is prett- Crit. it's okay Bonk!, there's plenty of Patrat's to replace you. Dreamyard (Due to my lack of team I'll take the monkey and the first spawn in the Grass, hopefully it won't happen again) You know the score, grab monkey, set Cilan on fire, win win. And Ukiki was no different, he's a keeper. First Gym down! And it was the least heart-wrenching of all the fights so far. ...So am I to understand that in order to stop Pokémon abuse Team Plasma need to abuse Pokémon? Kicking this Munna about isn't exactly convincing me. Beat them up with ease thanks to Ukiki. Right, my chances haven';t been great, so Bonk! Jr will bound to be a thi- Ooooohhhh a Munna! It took me ages to think of a nickname, it was like "You think you can create a good nickname for Munna? Dream On pal..." In Party: Riptide Jr - Oshawott Ukiki - Pansear Dream On - Munna He Dead: Chips - Lillipup, Level 3 - Level 3, Death by Crits Bonk! - Patrat, Level 5 - Level 7, Death by Crits Tune in next time!
  24. Agreed, it's no different to a "Game of the Year" edition and people seem to be fine with that so why not remasters?
