    Fucking why. If you're starving in order to have an original bone in rehashing the plot of DBZ for the 10000th time, how about talking about the first DB series instead of referencing one of the most irritating filler episodes in anime history before Endless Eight was a thing? How's that for a change?

      I really don't see what the big deal is that you're calling this out. Not only was the driving episode one of the funnier and more tolerable filler episodes, but it's almost definitely going to be one of the side-missions plotted around the area. I really don't see the problem with delving into some of the lighter content.

      Not to mention we already know there's going to be OG DB material, with Launch and Eighter already making appearances.

      Strongly disagreeing on the episode quality, it's painful to watch through, it's as if Happy Madison took over the anime.

      They are including original stuff for the game though.

      The game will explore the past of many characters and the article itself also mentions a new character, an ex-Ginyu Force female member.

  2. My vacation/work week is almost over. As much as the fresh air, lack of smog and better food have been a nice change of pace, I'm starting to miss home, so it's good it hasn't prolonged for too much.

      Where'd you vacation off to?

      Big house in a small mountain village in the middle of the Alps. I tend to know or work for rich people.

  3. Due ti not having much internet this week I am currently marathoning the two Project X Zone games.

    I haven't lost my touch it seems, I still can time right critical hits almost all the time.

  4. Honestly, the only major Fox movie that I'm sad it's getting cancelled is the Magic the Gathering film. Had a lot of potential.

      I reckon a lot of the cancelled films will end up at another studio eventually.

      Unless it also changes director, I don't have high hopes for the Flash Gordon reboot they were planning.

  6. Why does Obstagoon look like a Hokuto no Ken rejected mook?
    More specifically, what does that have to do with the regional theme and its description?
    And considering that, why isn't it Dark/Fighting?

      Probably Britain's history with rock music

      Reminds me of KISS.

      I thought about that too, but the fur that's supposed to reference the body armor doesn't seem to match much.

    4. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      Looks more to me like it's supposed to be based off of the leader singer of Kiss, Gene Simmons', leather jacket:

      KISS is one of the least British rock bands ever. 

  7. My hunt for the MCU Phase 1 tie-in videogames for PS3 is going smoothly, i got The Incredible Hulk today and in the next couple of days i should be getting Iron Man.
    Unfortunately, it seems Captain America Super Soldier is rare since the prices are not cheap even for used copies, so that may take a while to find (if any of you can help, i'd be thankful).

  8. So yeah, 7 years on the SSMB. Usually a lucky number, but for this occasion it's irrelevant.
    A lot of things have changed since when i joined all that time ago; Sonic games, me, the people around me, this community and the people i met here. Some things for the better, others for the worse, others entirely just because they needed to change; such is how life works, i suppose.
    My life has been on a rollercoaster these last 2 years for different reasons, and not in a great way. But reguardless of what happens here, i will always be grateful to this community in how it helped me changing and discover many new things in time.

    That being said, let me ask the question that was being asked by the others the other week: what do you see me as here? I don't think i asked feedback that many times in all these years, so might as well.

      You're like one of the older brothers I've never had.

      You're clever, sometimes at odds with moi, but in the end, always looking to make life better for as much folk as possible.

    2. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      You seem to be a bit of a community leader in ways, probably due to your longevity on this board.  You seem friendly as well!

  9. So apparently Japan isn't liking the Dragon Quest V CGI movie (and apparently already had bad expectations due to the cast not being made of VAs but celebrities instead).

    Copypasting story spoilers that apparently have surfaced on Reddit:
     

    Spoiler

    the childhood section is cut down a lot, one user said it felt like 5 minutes

    instead of having to get the rings, the hero has to jump straight into the Bjorn fight. Bianca comes to his rescue and that's how they meet again

    he initially proposes to Nera since that was the plan, but is convinced at the inn to marry the woman who he has real feelings for, Bianca, instead

    Bianca has just a son. The daughter was basically non-existent in the game and now she really doesn't exist

    this is where it gets weird. Everything is normal until the defeat of Ladja. Right at the end it's revealed that the protagonist is actually a DQ fan playing a VR version of DQV and Nimzo is a virus trying to destroy the game. Apparently the anti-virus is Roto's sword or something and it all ends pretty quick. "Your story"apparently refers to this; the story of you as a gamer.

    I have no idea what the original plot of DQV is, but if this is real, it's bizarre to say the least.

      Spoiler

      The marriage stuff in DQV wasn't well realized (I went in expecting some kind of Harvest Moon-esque thing) and there was literally no way you weren't going to pick Bianca on a first playthrough--she's the only one you're given any time to be attached to. I think this reflects the game, at least. Though changing the circumstances they meet is a little odd, and I assume cutting down the childhood chapter--when they do meet--is why that happened, and it being him fighting a side-boss is even weirder to me.

      If this is true, fuck this movie.

      I didn't even finish DQV (was pretty close) but it's definitely one that left an impression on me. I was really down for this movie too because it looked stunning, but if this is true, my interest is fucking gone.

      I don't remember it that well, but yikes. Freaking yikes. They did DQV so dirty.

  10. Has anyone here played the PS2 Altered Beast reboot? If so, how is it? Apparently i may need knowledge about it soon.

    1. Cayenne

      Cayenne

      It has been some years since I touched that game so I can't give you a good summary, but, if I remember well, it's an average Beat 'em up with clunky controls and a very shitty camera that gets really bad in certain situations.

      You also need to watch a cutscene everytime you transform. You can skip them pressing start (I guess) but they are still pretty annoying.

      Basically @Ellipsis-Ultima @Blue Blood @Ryannumber1gamer the SEGA Heroes social media accounts have decided the next batch of characters to be released, and the hints point towards Altered Beast.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      wake me up when they add persona 5 characters

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Wake me up when SEGA Heroes isn't garbage.

      (But no seriously, @Teoskaven thank you for considering me as I did play the game for a while)

    5. Ellipsis-Ultima

      Ellipsis-Ultima

      @Teoskaven I have no idea of the Altered Beast franchise so ehh.

  11. So, what happened? Is the board updating again?

      IPBoard version 6 or whatever number we're on now: now all members pages are mini blog-style pages and to have any discussion you gotta reblog posts between pages rather than just simply posting in centralized threads because thats what the cool social media sites do now

  12. I am in so much love with the RNG Nemesis System for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, i can't fathom how they have managed to program such a meticolous coding system and to make everything work down to the details. We should get more games that use this mechanic, even for other IPs that aren't necessarely Tolkien-related.

  13. So this is a thing apparently: https://gematsu.com/2019/07/sega-trademarks-nights-dream-wheel-in-japan

    The actual website seems to be saing it's tied to an actual console game, but the title makes it sound more like a pachislot. We'll see.

      Do I dare to hope for a new NiGHTS console game in the midst of all this new SEGA stuff we've been getting??????

    2. tailsBOOM!

      You'll get a NiGHTS waffle maker and be happy

      @tailsBOOM! the sonic toaster is getting lonely, glad it's getting a companion

  14. Doctor Strange 2 slightly spoiler speculation:

    Spoiler

    the subtitle, "in the Multiverse of Madness" seems very similar to "At the Mountain of Madness", a classic eldritch horror story by H.P. Lovecraft. And Scarlet Witch is co-starring, a character who uses chaos magic.

    Now, what Doctor Strange's recurring enemy in the comics embraces chaos, has dominion over countless different dimensions and is considered a lovecraftian horror...

      Spoiler

      Cthulhu is a Marvel character, though he hasn't been used in years.  This didn't stop some races appearing in GotG2 though.  I could see them bring him back since the Cthulhu craze is pretty big now, with a lot of media referring to it.

       

  15. Yeah, i guess my speech for the anniversary this time will be a bit different.

     

    In other news, apparently Matt Groening has tweeted that he now wants to definetly make a second Simpsons movie. Not sure if i should be excited or very worried about this.

      Anything to get another high profile widely released 2D animated film in theaters

  16. The Phase 4 movies i'm looking forward the most right now are Eternals, Shiang-Chi and Doctor Strange 2.
    Shame we're still not getting a proper Nova movie, but alas.

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      They seemed to sort of confirm there's more that they didn't discuss:

      But for me, they all seem good (Though  I'm hoping that Blade and the Fantastic Four do great since they'll have to do continue on more than likely)

    2. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      I've heard that, but i'll wait more official announcements.
      I sorta look forward to the Blade reboot, but i'll wait more news for that as well.

  17. I still can't fathom the fact that Sonic 06 has more things in common with the Felix the Cat Movie than with the actual Sonic franchise.

    1. pppp

      Silly Teo, why exactly would a Sonic game try to look and feel like a Sonic game that's just silly.

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Does it open with Sonic's disembodied head introducing the story?

    3. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      It might as well be.

  18. If you wanna help with the KyoAni situation, there's a GoFundme charity campaign made by Sentai Filmworks: https://www.gofundme.com/help-kyoani-heal

      I donated yesterday, but I'm looking to do more next week if possible

  19. So one thing i had yet to do that i had promised myself to try after seeing it mentioned in its Abridged series was to take a look at the Singapore dub of Yu-Gi-Oh.

     

    ...yeah. Never again.

  21. That new 3D animated Lupin the III movie looks dope from the trailer.

      I'm so glad Spiderverse has opened the rest of the world's eyes to the potential of cartoons adapted to CG rather than CG mimicking cartoons.

    2. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Well, similar to Lupin the III now, there have been already a 3D animated Captain Harlock movie and a Saint Seyia one, so it's not really a recent thing.

  22. The more the development of Sword and Shield goes on, the more it screams that the dev team wanted to do a mon-esque new IP but was bound by contract or popularity expectations, yet decided to stick to the ideas that they had to screw up the higher-ups and investors.

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      i have no idea where you're getting that from

    2. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      I mean

      They're doing a new IP, Town

      so nah
