  1. What do you guys think the odds of Travis Touchdown getting added to Smash are, given his new game was just released?

    1. Tracker_TD

      Apparently Suda outright said on a pre-release stream for TSA that he's not in

      Granted he could just be lying but idk 

    2. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Yeah seriously. The guy's an enigma, so for all we know it could have just been opposite day for him.

      Apparently the new game was overwhelmingly mediocre but it's not like the majority of Travis's presence wasn't already Nintendo focused and inspired.

      ...was NMH2 even ported outside of the Wii? I don't remember seeing one.

      As much as Dante's. Both series had their producers saying they weren't getting in. At least for this Season. So......

      I thought the second game was released on ps3 like the first, but apparently not.

      What about Henry?

  2. Alright I finally beat World of Light's stupid final boss on Hard. Sheesh, at some points it becomes impossible to even tell what the hell is even going on.

  3. Lyndis is easily one of the cutest Fire Emblem girls.

    I wish I knew a girl that would look at me like that.

  4. I didn't get paid for my first week of work, and now I can't even finish the stupid World of Light in Smash Bros. due to that damn boss rush.

    Safe to say I'm pretty pissed right now.

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Sucks man, you deserve to get paid for your work, and we also deserve a less overkill final fight.

      Hope things get better soon.

    2. Maxtiis

      Ugh, in this context it sounds so childish to even complain about anything tbh.

      I'm glad I at least have somewhere to vent that no one else has to see if they don't really want to.

    3. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      It's not childish, don't worry. You have a right to be pissed.

    4. Kiah

      Kiah

      I wouldn’t call anything you mentioned here childish. Especially the former. Sorry that happened. Was it an error in payroll? Hopefully they resolve that quickly. In the meantime is there some kind of loan system for your wages that your job can give you now? My job does that and you give them your paycheck back when you finally do get it to offset the loan.

      As for the latter there’s nothing wrong complaining about things going wrong with playing video games. So many other members do it so surely you can do the same so please don’t worry about it. Vent away.

      It's something to do with company policy where the first two payments are sent as checks in the mail, I suppose just to ensure they're able to do direct deposit more easily. However they told me you're supposed to get them on Friday and that didn't happen nor did it today, so that's a week without getting paid. It's pretty aggravating given I was planning to use it to open a checking account.

      And because you say its ok, Smash Bros bosses suck just for how poorly they mesh with Smash's normal gameplay. They just have shitloads of health and very large, disjointed hitboxes.

    6. Kiah

      Kiah

      Oh I see. Yeah that is aggravating. I don’t understand why they don’t offer direct deposit right off the bat seeing how cost effective it is. Well here’s to hoping no other setbacks happen and you’ll get paid.

      And yes, it’s okay. Totally okay. I’m assuming you’re talking about Ultimate which I haven’t gotten yet or a Switch for that matter. One day I’ll change that and maybe I’ll get to see what you are talking about. 

    7. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I couldn't get direct deposit anyway because I don't have an account in my name, which is why I was willing to wait for the check. Sort of a Catch 22.

    8. Kiah

      Kiah

      Gotcha. Hopefully things go smoothly from here on out. 

    9. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      And based on how long this video is, you can see how painful this fight can be.

       

  5. Damn it you beat me to it, although I was probably going to post every character's title logo. Speaking of which, we really should do another character poll sometime just for the sake of seeing how opinions have changed over the years. I imagine Eggman will probably be higher than number 7(?) this time around.
  6. You mean this right? I wouldn't say it sounds depressing, it's just a crescendo into one final note. It's probably the lingering on that last note combined with the Genesis' sound card that makes it sound haunting, if that's a way to describe it. Nowadays I mostly hear it used in parodies of Sonic if I'm not replaying the first two games.
  7. I guess I can finally say the phrase, "another day, another dollar".

    Yesterday really gave my legs a workout though.

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      You really shouldn't be kicking people to steal their dollars

    2. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      It's honest work. Some people need an ass kicking.

  8. Did anyone try out that Re2 REmake demo?

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Nope. Mostly because I wanna go in blind.

    2. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I think it's different if you're the one playing it. I would have if I had any way to.

  9. Completed my first day of work as a porter, fell asleep for 2 hours the instant I came home.

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      That exhausting, huh? Hopefully you’ll get used to it quickly and it won’t take such a toll on you physically. Hope the job goes well for you too. 

    2. Maxtiis

      I'm working with my best friend, so despite just about everyone else there being an asshole, things might go ok for a time. I'm working at a casino so there's TONS of walking.

    3. Kiah

      Kiah

      Okay not bad having your best friend amid a ton of jerks as workmates. Like it balances out. And nothing wrong with a ton of walking. Free exercise and all that lol.

    4. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Yeah I suppose. I've been needing the exercise.

  10. That moment when every status update is about Unleashed.

    On another note, Sega should force the movie to be like this, even if it's ripping off Into the Spider-verse:

    image.thumb.png.96235488b2fd7db82b08010b1cc369e7.png

  11. Well I've managed to win the most notorious fights in World of Light that I'm aware of.

      Somehow, your profile picture matches this status update.

      I can safely say they still read your inputs like the cheating pieces of shit they are though.

    3. jingleblurs98

      jingleblurs98

      let me guess, dr. wily and rayman?

    4. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Yeah but those two in particular didn't really give me as much shit given I knew ahead of time how bullshit they were.

      No, the stuff I find really bullshit is stuff like the Marth and Lucina fight in the world of darkness, where you're basically fighting two tourney level humans at once and they just combo you into a spike without any way to handle both at once.

  12. I'm impressed with this run of Sonic 1 for gdq, though I can't help but wish I had the talent to speedrun a game myself.

      I've been watching the Sonic Mania race, and it's interesting to see just how broken the game is even after patches.

       

  13. Honestly this is the only place I've seen people expressing such a strong negative emotion towards Sonic. Most other places such as youtube have a general variation of those that remain optimistic and those that are hopeless towards it (but continue to follow it regardless). It was pretty bad leading up to Forces around here though. Tbh, I was a bit apprehensive about even discussing it just because I was anxious about how much of a backlash I could get just for saying what I thought. I'm still holding onto the hope that this franchise can further improve though. Mania was such a big leap forward in overall quality for me, and it started development after Forces, which leads me think that they just wanted to release what they had already spent 4 years at least on, so the possibility exists that their direction has changed in the time since.

      Pure reflex in action.

    Well this certainly took me back, except girls weren't happy when I texted them. They were annoyed.

  16. I just read that The Spin article on the Freedom Fighters, and until now it never occurred to me that I'd be a bit sad to see them go. Of course I'd much rather follow and see the main continuity characters experience their own stories, but after growing up reading the stories Sally and the others appeared in over the past 25 years, it really struck a chord with me.

  17. Man, losing to Smash Bros. A.I. is always that one thing that ruins my self-esteem so much. If I can't beat some stupid computers, how could I ever beat actual players?

    1. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I know I've virtually said this already, but sheesh, it's so aggravating. And I'm too stubborn to give up.

    2. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      For what it's worth, the high level AI is based off actual tourney level players. There's absolutely no shame in losing to them.

    3. Celestia

      Celestia

      Well, that and the AI "cheats" to some extent, especially at higher levels.

    4. TCB

      TCB

      I know I'm not good irl level play so I don't even attempt lvl 9 cpu matches I suck

    5. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      @TCB I'm not sure if I'm actually fighting what the game would consider lvl 9 cpus given that I'm running through world of light on Hard, which is vague at describing how difficult it really is. Sometimes the a.i. will be braindead, sometimes it will prove to be a completely fair challenge, and other times it's like it has permanent i-frames and no matter what you do, it'll proceed to fly right through your attacks and combo you into a spike.

    6. TCB

      TCB

      Oh you talking about some of those 3-4 star spirit battles yeah those can suck all the confidence you thought you had playing up til that point

  18. DwcK7krVAAEvucQ.jpg:large

    Imagine seeing this while driving.

  19. Man, no other game series gets my blood boiling quite like Smash Bros. And its not losing to other players that's the problem, it's the damn a.i.

    1. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      This level is Hell. 

    2. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      it's a tough one, but if you can take out the assist trophy quick enough it ain't bad. no shame in waiting and coming back with stronger spirits, either.

    3. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I read the one that starts you as metal is best suited for it. I'm not the only one this particlar level has given trouble it seemed.

  20. I know Metal Gear gets all the love from most people, but Thief: the Dark Project and its sequels really are spectacular. Easily my favorite stealth games.

    I was actually wanting to post a topic on this forum about Thief, but decided not enough people would be interested in it to make the write up worth it.

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      This is also one of the reasons why Thief 2014 is very disliked, it had huge shoes to fill and did almost nothing to do so. A sad tale for this franchise.

    2. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I recall the developers were almost actively trying to distance themselves away from the conventions that made Thief what it was.

      At least the fan community for the series is still faithful, and even outputting their own maps that rival and occasionally exceed those that Looking Glass made. If you're interested, look up Klatremus on youtube, he has tons of videos on good fan campaigns even if he tries to play them in a way they weren't designed for.

    3. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Y'know, if making a topic about it is something you wanted to do, then that alone should be enough to make it worth it.

      As for me, I never played the originals but did play the 2014 entry. I guess it was okay, but very weird and creepy. I just couldn't say how it compares to the originals with having no knowledge of them.

    4. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Well I wasn't confident in what I had wrote, it mostly just seemed like a wikipedia article trying to inform people who hadn't heard of it what it was about, and that just didn't seem engaging.

      Thief 1 definitely has it's creepier moments involving sneaking around undead infested areas. Like the sounds of one of the most dangerous enemies the Hammer Haunts:

       

  21. World of Light is so unfair it's not even funny.

    1. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Nevermind. I just suck, much like at everything I try.

    2. StriCNYN3

      StriCNYN3

      Cpu's in general were stepped up significantly compared to the last Smash games, so much so that people swear they're playing real ass people haha (There was an update that even tweaked the difficulty because they were so damn hard). I've seen a video of one of the best melee players getting rested by a cpu Jiggs like 3-4 times in a row with it's laser like precision within mere seconds playing Wol.

      So don't worry about it man, because it's most likely aint just you. The difficulty has become pretty jank in some areas.

  22. Morning! Wake up to a meme.

      Kiah

      @Maxtiis oh my...

  23. Well he didn't make it very far.

     

  24. I've suddenly just started feeling depressed, lonely, and like nobody cares about me. I don't really feel like talking about it, but just bringing it up eases the tension I'm feeling. I think.

    Idk, honestly when I do get in these moods, it just feels like I'm begging for undeserved praise or consolation and makes my self-loathing all the more validated.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I get that sometimes. Dunno why it happens. It just does.

    2. Kiah

      Kiah

      First off sorry you’re feeling that way. These feelings of depression, loneliness and worthlessness are the absolute worst. Keep in mind that it isn’t true that no one cares about you simply with SSMB alone. 

      And it’s okay if you don’t want to talk about it but if you ever change your mind feel free to talk about it wherever. My door is always open as well. Also agreed on simply mentioning it as it is a release of some sort as well as an opportunity to get some kind of comfort and support which is absolutely needed in times like this.

      That said, you aren’t begging for attention at all. It’s bad enough to be in these situations in the first place let alone go through them all alone. We all desire to be praised and have consolation when we are down and there’s absolutely nothing wrong seeking it. 

      Hang in there and I hope you feel better soon. 

    3. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      I understand that feeling. A lot.

      If you ever change your mind and wanna talk about it, hit me up. 

  25. Yeah I hear that people seem to like Tangle and Whisper a good deal, and they're both well designed so I'd imagine the rest of the artwork follows suit. Thanks for the write out though; if I find a copy somewhere I suppose I'll start my collection anew. At least with Archie finished I can conceivably collect all the issues from it someday
