  1. Tomorrow's the 7th! That means Dragon Ball Super spoilers day!

  2. Well seeing TOMY advertise a Vector plush at least means the minor characters won't be completely neglected

  3. Concept: Luigi’s Inferno

    When Mario dies, Luigi is armed with the Poltergust 6000 and sent on a mission to Hell to retrieve his brother’s soul.

  4. Kid Buu in DBFZ is the most annoying thing ever.

  5. hakaishin_candidate_bergamo.png

    What if Bergamo had been the God of Destruction candidate instead of Toppo? :v

  6. The Sega Forums are closing tomorrow.

     

    Welcome to SSMB.

  7. I'm definetly a casual at fighting games.

    Played a few matches with some Discord guys and lost badly.

  8. This year's Toy Fair was a good one for me (but not my wallet), but Wicked Cool's new Pokemon line was by far the highlight:

  9. I love how Dragon Ball Super fans have a divide over whether or not Basil or Bergamo is the main member of the Trio de Dangers, in the event they were added to FighterZ as one character

  10. Dragon Ball Super would be complete garbage to me if not for the character of Lavender.

  11. Super ending means the odds of the Erased universes staying Erased are higher doesn't it *curls into a ball and cries*

  12. Interesting. So GE are still actively making Sonic merchandise it seems. They just lost the license to plushes and all plush have been taken off their website. They just make things like mugs, plush keychains and stationary items.

  13. Reminder that Super will have 133 episodes before the ending/hiatus, over double what GT had. (64 episodes)

  14. Jiren has such a bland design imo

  15. With how the Super manga went, there's no basis for a U7-U9 rivalry. I will call shenanigans if U10 doesn't go out first this time around.

  16. Looks like the Trio de Dangers will finally appear in the manga next month. Ohhhhh yeahhhh

  17. The only thing better than Sonic Underground music... is Sonic Underground music in SPANISH!

  18. Re: Ganondorf as an anti-hero

    Actually you can make a strong case he was one. It needs to be remembered we're taught from the dominant group's perspective in Ocarina of Times. These people good because they support the King, these people bad because they don't. Doesn't that sound familiar? Zelda's a child, of course she's not going to contemplate the possibility her daddy has done some evil things. There's a strong possibility there's privilege in the work here.

    There's room in the lore to see that the war preceding Ocarina of Time was brutal and bloody, and that the defeated groups - such as the Gerudo - suffered immensely in the peace process. Never mind how Darunia implies the King of Hyrule is a terrible ruler who doesn't listen to his subjects' warnings.

    As for Ganon himself. Let's consider his position. He had the position of King thrust upon himself. He envied the prosperous climate of Hyrule, which led to his ambitious goals. The question is raised: why not just move the Gerudo into the better parts of Hyrule? Is it because they are, indeed, just a bunch of thieves, or because Hyrule has isolated and segregated them, keeping them from living fully productive lives? Perhaps the King was using his immense power to keep the Gerudo down, and so Ganon, wanting to benefit his people, felt there was only one solution: even more power.

    Let's consider Ganon's "evil" prior to taking the throne of Hyrule by force. His curses on the three tribes are notable, and easily set him up as a villain. But at the same time, let's remember he rules a people who are constantly struggling to survive, who have been caricatured as nothing but thieves in the eyes of the rest of Hyrule. His curses on the Deku Tree, Gorons, and Zora's Domain are easily a case of "then you will share our fate under the King's boot."

    As for what happens after he acquires the Triforce, power corrupts. If the Gerudo were indeed persecuted in the aftermath of the War, Ganon would naturally be a little pissed off at the rest of Hyrule. That's what war does; there were many Israeli politicians who dreamed of destroying Germany after World War II. Regardless, the hatred and anger in him, combined with his power and his delving into the dark arts for a quick source of power, would surely have worked to corrupt his soul regardless of any good intentions he initially had. Any good intentions would quickly be overshadowed by the ability to destroy one's enemies and enslave anyone who remained. Indeed, such is the tale of many usurpers throughout real world history.

  20. On the subject of Ganon, I've been thinking: Is there any possible way to lift Demise's curse by destroying him for good, or are Link and Zelda truly destined to fight an uphill battle for all eternity?

    I just feel that concept works the same way as Sonic's argument with Tikal at the end of Adventure: Defeating and sealing Ganon is just a temporary solution, and doing so is basically just saying "He's someone else's problem in the future."

  21. Ganondorf is a bad person, but the Demise twist kinda pigeonholed his character in a way I don't really like

  23. Moved into my new house. There's a pub next door with a furry mascot, and it's actually the second location of its brand, the original having been closed due to safety issues (several shootings). So basically, it's the RL Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, and I live next to the freaking Sister Location!

  24. Cell: I'm perfect. *gets distracted by Vegeta's ki during the Kamehameha struggle.

    Cell: This can't be! I'm too perfect to be distracted! *dies
