    Doctor Who

    So for anyone who wants to seek it out, there's been a leak of a scene from the first episode of s11. It's definitely a very intentionally chosen scene and very polished, definitely been through post-production already. It's possible it was a tactical leak but more likely it seems it's going to turn out to be a teaser they're showing at SDCC but that remains to be seen. Putting my thoughts in spoiler tag just to be cautious but nothing in it is really a spoiler. A location that was completely changed on every level from the location it had been in every other appearance too in order to fit Class' concept. It's not even the Coal Hill Highschool that had actually been an iconic location from across the 50+ years of Doctor Who and instead a totally different school, now suddenly a 5th former school out of nowhere (not even lining up with the most recent series, never mind the debut episode from 1963). So it's a Doctor Who spin-off where the only tie to the parent show is a location that's nothing like how that location is in the parent show. =P

    Doctor Who

    On the point of the TARDIS explosion. We know the TARDIS is a part of the regeneration process and it seems to be as impacted by the Doctor's regeneration as he is. I think it's less "they keep reusing the same cliffhanger" and more maintaining internal consistency about it throwing the TARDIS for a loop too. But I do agree with the point that in execution this one was a bit too familiar and didn't help when there's literally nothing to take from it as a first scene. That was a rumour for just about every single episode of Capaldi's run and honestly I don't really understand why people are so obsessed with seeing it. Yeah I'm sure you could make more of it than we saw on screen, but I don't think there was anything more that needed to be made of it.

    Doctor Who

    So hey, with the 13th Doctor now showing up on screen I can stop avoiding everything Who online as to not be spoiled about the identity. Feels kinda weird to be back to looking at DW threads after so long. Enjoyed Christmas, cautiously looking forward to s11 but with concerns.
  4. I think if SEGA had been impressed with its performance we'd have seen more Puyo Puyo games localised under the guise of Sonic/Robotnik as follow ups. Plenty of well reviewed games fail to be fair we can't judge on that. As for Chaotix it probably did outsell it but I don't think the comparison is fair, Chaotix is exclusive to the 32X which had absolutely no install base and the system add on itself was a failure. It's like comparing the sales of a PS4 game to a Vita game to show the PS4 game was a success.

    Was Knuckles' Chaotix really a bad game?

    Cool idea, great gameplay and characters. Some nice bosses at times. Completely empty levels that go on forever and feel interchangeable beyond the visual. Plus even the visual lacks any staying power in terms of being memorable. Overall I'd say it's okay, definitely weak for the era though. Which is a shame because a game that actually had great level design and used its brilliant mechanics well could have been incredible.
  6. Tbh since the moment of the announcement I actually did immediately think "surely this is actually illegal, but Disney will just Disney through that". I mean they already repeatedly pay their way out of convincingly argue for extensions on copyright law. I'm sure they will have just as easily paid their way past the laws designed to stop a monopoly like this effectively argued there's nothing untoward about owning this much as a media conglomerate.
  7. It's a season average, the arrow just picks an iconic thing from it to remind people of. I've seen plenty of shows where the best seasons are much less consistent than others thanks to a few bad eps but they amount to more than the sum of their parts in people's eyes focusing on how good the good eps in it were. (Look at s5 of Next Gen as an example, one of the absolute favourites but it has more actual duds in it than s4 or s6. But it's got Darmok and Inner Light among a few others so people tend to overlook and forget about those duds).
  8. Yeah that was dumb. What people failed to take into account was that the MCU films were already there.
  9. Why do people give a fuck about the Simpsons in 2017?
  10. Bollocks. Goodbye good X-Men films.Best I can hope for in this is Marvel at least give me a good Cyclops, but given the MCU's own lack of accuracy I'm not optimistic.At least the comics can stop pretending the F4 don't exist.

    The decline of various franchises

    Starts good, becomes terrible then picks up to an okay end. Overall it's a mess of a film, easily the weakest of the original trilogy and a huge disappointment on the back of Empire Strikes Back. But overall still better than what the franchise would become in the prequels.

    The decline of various franchises

    A lot of franchises have highs and lows. Sometimes they're more pronounced than in others. Sonic I view as more of a roller coaster than a consistent decline, but the narrative surrounding the franchise that it declined makes everyone act like the good is the exception even when it's maintained for periods of time. Star Trek has been pretty all over the place from highs to lows. Doctor Who cycles a lot. Marvel and DC comics live their lives going from highs to lows. It's very rare for any sufficiently long running franchise to not suffer dips. But as long as they get the chance to I feel they do inevitably always turn it around for a time. (On the subject of series like Simpsons and Spongebob mentioned above though I view those a bit differently, since they're just single continuous series running themselves into the ground, rather than expansive franchises that are always changing). Star Wars declined after the original 2 movies. The prequel trilogy found impressive new lows after that.
  13. Pls no. There's currently an entire industry en masse trying to sacrifice good level design for dull open spaces filled with nothing. I'd rather the few games offering an alternative experience didn't cave as well.
  14. Very happy to see this. Nice to have a fairly comprehensive collection, especially when this is the first time the pre-3rd Strike versions of III can be played on something not a Dreamcast. Which is nice for the purposes of archiving history and getting the characters endings. Wish Alpha 2 had online as well since it's the best Alpha game IMO and Alpha 3 is more it's own thing than an extension of the Alpha games, but overall a great collection. What other than the Street Fighter IV series are they overlooking for you? All the crossover games obviously have licensing issues that make including them very difficult and the same goes for the EX series.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Lord & Miller, 2018)

    Trailer looks great, though I do find Miles a bit bland but he's in a unique position with the worlds view to give him a benefit most other legacy characters don't get so of course he gets the push. Ah well, hopefully with the whole Spider-Verse angle we can get some of the more interesting Spider-Man offshoots in the film too.
