  1. I have to go for a while, SSMB. See you all in a couple fo days hopefully.

    1. Ferno

      I always see this forum as a small town without a gate, allowing anyone to come and go whenever and however long they feel like. We'll still be here when you get back, good luck out there!

    2. Kiah

      Okay take care! Hope to see you soon!

      Take care! See you later!

  2. Jeez. Normally i don't like RTUSA, but this time i can't complain with what he said. We're really spiraling down.

      "The plot has nothing to do with a damsel in distress."

      ....................... Zelda's been locked in the castle for 100 years holding back Ganon and you're charged with getting to her before Ganon breaks free.... How is this not a damsel--

      You know what? I don't give a shit.

      I lost all interest in Anita's brand of feminism when she claimed Princess Peach wasn't a strong female character by intentionally ignoring the spin-off games, which even at the time had examples against her claims (3D Land was the latest, in which Peach escapes of her own accord halfway through the game, and the original Mario Bros' plot had Mario rescuing her because SHE was the only one who could restore the kingdom to it's former state and undo Bowser's magic... hence why he kidnapped her with his own)

      @JezMM

      I think the point for me was the very first episode of that show she did, in which she tried to claim Elaine from Monkey Island was a Damsel in Distress.

      In said series, Guybrush the main character is more of a damsel. In the first game, Elaine escapes the villain, LeChuck on her own, and sets up two monkeys in a wedding gown to troll him afterwards. In Monkey Island 2 Guybrush was in distress hanging onto a rope and a box of treasure while Elaine trolls him and makes him tell her the entire story of the game before she'll help him up. In Monkey Island 3, she's a damsel in the loosest sense of the word (In that she still kicks the ass of anyone who tries to fuck with her, the only reason she gets put out of commission is Guybrush accidentally giving her a cursed wedding ring).

      In Escape to Monkey Island, the game literally begins with Guybrush tied up by pirates while Elaine is running around sword fighting and kicking their asses. Later, when LeChuck attempts to steal her role as governor, she fights him to the point he gets desperate enough to search for something called "The Ultimate Insult" which is supposedly able to make anyone into a crying mess just to knock her down a few pegs, and he still fails. Tales of Monkey Island is even more looser than Escape. In that one, while Guybrush technically has to save her twice, the first time is because she's infected with a voodoo pox that turns her into an insane badass killer pirate who scares anyone who comes near her, and in the second instance, it was an Batman gambit by Elaine, who allowed herself to be turned into a "demon queen" so she could kill LeChuck.

      So yeah, I really don't get how she's a example of Damsel when she makes Guybrush, the player character look less badass compared to her, and on top of that, she's only been in actual danger that put her out of commission a grand total of once. 

  3. Finished Singularity, and yeah, it's surprisingly fun, i dare to say with also a decent plot (maybe not fantastic, but for Activision standards it's gold, especially considering it deals with time travel mechanics, wich are poison for any type of story). Definetly worth a sequel if you ask me.

    Now, i wanna do a test with the Devil May Cry HD Collection i have; after that i'll be seeing what Bethesda saw in WET.

    1. Mayor D

      Singularity was great.

      That tunnel with the ticks can burn in he'll though.

    2. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      I feel like the ending was kinda dumb tbh

      Spoiler

      You're expected to shoot your past self to prevent the big bad from being saved? Why not just... shoot the big bad instead? It's fucking maddening they didn't account for the ability to do that.

      In any case WET is okay, though it's very heavy handed with QTEs and slowmo. And it also

      Spoiler

      finishes on a sequel hook, which you can kinda guess never got fulfilled.

      Actually, I imagine Barisov DID account for that option, since he's the guy who knows all about time travel.

      The thing is, if Renko lives in that state, Barisov can't find the TMD on a dead Renko's body and use it to unify the world under Soviet rule.

      This way, everyone except Demichev wins: Renko kills himself, "snapping" him back to his original place in the timeline, while Barisov is able to use the TMD to form a worldwide, benevolent Soviet state.

  4. I wonder if with its quick rise and growth into the gaming industry in these recent years and revival of licensed IPs like LotR or Mad Max, Warner Bros. will start permitting game of its other dead licensed properties like The Matrix or Harry Potter.

    1. Kintor

      Kintor

      There are rumours that Warner Bros are working on new sequal/possible reboot to The Matrix. Which would be the perfect opportunity to create a new Matrix game alongside.

      Personally, I'd love to see the 'Mega Smith' final boss battle for Path of Neo running in a modern engine:

       

  5. Guys, it's pretty obvious at this point what the 3 gameplay styles are gonna be:

    *2D

    *Boost 3D

    *Wisp

    Both Modern and Classic will alternate between these in the stages.

  6. The stream wasn't even over and the tile has already become a meme.

    Wow.

    1. Soldier: 76

      Soldier: 76

      Sonic Forces shitty Sonic Forces memes down our throats before the stream is even over.

  7. So, i know it's really stupid to ask, but will the Sonic event thingy be streamed by Motobug?

  8. Here's Firestorm's offical trailer (showcasing also a bit more Green Arrow): The only thing that disappoints me a bit (wich seems to be same for a couple of other characters) it's his super move. I've noticed a pattern and it seems that NS when out of ideas says "alright, simple combos, the opponent get lifted in the air and then smashed by two objects summoned by the character".
  9. So, SSMB, since i've finished Shadows of the Damned, suggest me what should i play next choosing from this three titles:
    *WET

    *Mindjack

    *Singularity

    1. Boomer

      Boomer

      Singularity

    2. Princess Jellicent

      Princess Jellicent

      Lolipop Chainsaw!

      You need to play all the Sudas!

    3. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      Singularity > Wet >>>>>>>>> Mindjack

    4. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      @Princess Jellicent: it's in program, but i don' have it in my posession atm. Same goes for example to the Splatterhouse reboot.

       

      Anyway, Singularity it is. Let's see what Activision can pull on a FPS that's not CoD.

  10. I tend to say it occasionally, but it's worth repeating. I was literally searching news about Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and i've stumbled into the local thread here. I liked the place, so i decided to try giving it a go. And as i mentioned too multiple times, i've never come to regret it. Take it from a person who browses the Internet since 2005, this is one of the best communities i've seen.

    What's your choice, SSMB?

    1. Forte-Metallix

      Definitely the left one.

      i'm liking the one we got already

  12. So apparently, for the Episode Gladio DLC of Final Fantasy XV, Tabata asked Keichi Okabe to remix Clash on the Big Bridge with the style he used on the Yoko Taro games.

    I think i need a new pair of boxers, this one just exploded.

      Gladio is FUCKIN' PISSED!

  13. Well now.

    One cannot go away 5 minutes without seeing an e-celeb causing a shitstom. Fan-fucking-tastic.

  14. -no mods around-


    DUROOO! MONSTAH CAADOH!

      Yes! Some people dismiss season 4 as filler just because it didn’t appear in the original manga. Personally, I think that the 'Berserker Soul' scene alone justifies season's 4's existence. Plus, duelling on top of a speeding train - that is so cool!

  15. Just saw the latest Yu-Gi-Oh movie in theathre.

    It was fucking amazing, totally worth it to be seen on the big screen.

    1. Teoskaven

      Only personal pet-pevees (in spoilers):

       

      Spoiler

      *Joey doesn't get to duel once :(

      *No Rex and Weevil cameo :C

      *Duke barely says and does anything, they could have brought anyone back instead of him like Mako or Mai and it wouldn't have made a difference

      *The last couple of minutes are rushed horribly; suddenly, Atem-ex-Machina, he doesn't eve say wich card he used, cut away to the characters saying goodbye and then stinger with Kaiba still being a fucking psychopath. It could have been handled better.

      *Yeah, the Pharaoh is barely in this, but to be fair, the entire story is about letting him and his memory go, moving forward from it, so for that message, his lack of presence actually works for me. I can only see why fans of him may be disappointed due to the trailers.

      *The new duel rules are a bit too overcomplicated for my tastes, although they were explained. I wonder if there will be a themed game wich uses them instead of the traditional ones.

      Just out of curiosity, were the voices in English or Italian for you?

      [spoilers]Ah, but there IS a Rex and Weevil cameo! If you look hard enough:

      Guess my eyes were not sharp enough.

      @dwibs93: Italian. Of the original anime cast, only the voice actors of Yugi/Pharao, Seto and Joey came back, all the others got new people. Keep in mind though that Yugi's VA here has a more "light" voice unlike Dan Green since it was chosen to be as similar to the japanese one (as per tradition).
