      There is one 10 second segment of Sonic Unleashed PS3 that actually runs at 60 fps and I just about weep every time I see it.

    Pokemon turned out worse than I thought.

      Is that a wild Balbasaur?!

      EDIT: it’s a mod.

      This is all because Eggman became Todd Howard.

  3. Why do we all have to wear these ridiculous ties?

      Someone's hidden my glasses again...

  4. Seeing the shape of Robotnik’s robots in the movie, I’m feeling like Sonic will end up calling him Eggman throughout the movie “because he likes eggs so much.” Tom the Cop will keep calling him Robotnik, but the name suddenly rubs off on him as he accidentally calls Robotnik as “Eggman” to his face.

    ”Hah! That Eggman—“
    ”No, didn’t you see his robots? He’s totally an Eggman.”
    ”But his name is Dr Robotnik.”
    ”He’s an Eggman.”

      I think that's actually a cute way to bring in the name. Now I kinda hope that happens.

  5. You are not obligated to watch the movie just because they listened to feedback.

    1. StaticMania


      You mean obligated?

      That was confusing.

      Sure. If you've garnered respect for them because of it and feel like giving it a chance now, that's fine as well. So long as it's your decision and no one else's.

      If you don't choose to watch the film, you're ungrateful and telling Hollywood that it should never listen to the fans. You owe this film your money and your time.

      But they've Tyson Hesse on board! TYSON!!! I guess you don't like him anymore? OK!

      I'll stick with the watch on freeview in a few years plan.

  6. A Sonic scene in China, huh... 🤔

  7. don't quite like the movie, but would legit get those puma sonic shoes

  8. the cut pokemon are still in SwSh’s data, models and all. you can get them by hacking the game

    i have no words

    1. 8ther
    2. Polkadi~☆


      I was mistaken. Only some Pokemon sit in the game’s data, for an unknown purpose. There is no way to access them outside hacking.

    3. tailsBOOM!


      Reminder that the game only uses half of the max size (A little over 16 GB out of 32).

  9. why do i own two copies of shark tale on dvd

    i'm not kidding, i found them in my dvd drawer

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      You need a double dosing of Will Smith Fish

    2. Menace2Society


      I have two copies of Ratchet and Clank on PS4, so I wouldn’t be one to judge.

    3. tailsBOOM!


      Because you're a weiner


  10. image0.jpg

    My Mega Man Zero design works arrived! The art it documents is truly something else~

    1. Zaysho


      I got the original paperback release of that years ago when I was in college. Really tempted to double dip for the hardcover version since I worry about the binding sometimes.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      Huh, there was a paperback release? All the Mega Man design works I've found have all been hardcover.

      If you're concerned about the binding, might as well pick up the hardcover edition. But from my personal experience picking up this book, you'll have to look hard to find a copy at a reasonable price. This was stupidly hard to find at a price that wasn't bloated to high heaven.

    3. Zaysho


      I picked up the paperback release around ten years ago when it was new in the west (I bought a lot of books and things in college). When UDON started doing more Mega Man books I think they switched to a hardcover format, but I believe the classic and X books were also originally released in paperback and were reprinted later. Really hoping Okami's book gets that treatment because my original printing got damaged in a move.

  11. I sketched up this noblewoman while trying to study more about bodies and muscles.


    There is a certain smugness to this picture... >.<


    おほほ〜 = Ohoho~

    1. Strong Guy

      Strong Guy

      Where's the muscles

    2. Polkadi~☆


      there are no muscles in this drawing

      come back another time, when i’ve drawn muscles and buff guys

  12. Sonic Generations on PC is pretty good.

    Sonic Generations on console is... kinda ass, tbh. Something about the way it plays doesn’t feel right.

    1. Menace2Society


      Gens on console runs at 30 FPS.

      Fast-paced games like Generations really aren’t meant to be played at 30 FPS.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Generations on consoles is fine

      ... if you've never seen 60fps before. 

  13. I finished Gurren Lagann recently. I'd put this on par with how I feel about Kill La Kill, maybe higher, as it really does stand out as one of the best. Now I'm going back further to FLCL, and will probably go to GunBuster after that.

    I've also been reading more of the AKIRA manga. It's not at all like the film, rather that this is a WHOLE NEW experience.

    1. Sean


      I think KLK kept the excitement up in a more consistent way, TTGL had a few low points for me (episode 8 isn't one of them) and even some of the really good moments dragged at times. I'm not really sure which one I'd rate higher but KLK is the one I'd be more willing to rewatch first.

    2. Wraith


      Klk is like diet GL

    3. Polkadi~☆


      I'd find it a difficult pick between KLK and TTGL, as I enjoy the both of them. Both are incredibly well done, and I like many things the two series do differently.

      Honestly, they're both up as my favourites, by this point.

    4. Sean


      TTGL is still very good stuff. Wish Viral got more focus in the second half though, he might be my favorite character.

    5. dbzfan7


      Both are great but I think I prefer KLK slightly as I feel GL kinda relied too much on the spiral power always bailing em out. Not strong enough....more spiral power. Still very awesome but it sorta took me out a bit and gave a samey approach to results.

    6. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      Gurren lagann's a classic. It took me a while to get into, but after a second chance it was  pretty fun stuff.

  14. Huh, Amazon has the artbook for the Mega Man Zero series at the lowest price I’ve found so far, and it’s the last in stock. Eat your heart out, Book Depository (and according to your Amazon listing, you lie, you’re not out of stock at all >:U)

    I look forward to reading through this next week! Definitely has my favourite art in all of the Mega Man series.

  15. how is caramelldansen more japanese than swedish despite being a swedish song

    1. Menace2Society


      Because it's nightcore.


  16. i was looking forward to persona 5 royal, but it’s literally the exact same game

    not even like persona 4 golden where there’s quite a bit of new fun content to find, the new content in persona 5 royal is just nothing

    they’re selling the exact same game with some really expensive DLC attached


    1. Thigolf


      And it still has the funneh gays

    2. Wraith


      if they had at least gone back and fixed things I would consider it but all the garbage is still in the game and now there's new garbage to go along with it. They made a worse version



      but look guys pretty anime girl

    3. Kuzu


      Ok, for context; the only people who has completed the game, is a guy who specifically did a speed run to finish it as fast as possible and didn't bother exploring anything else about it.The changes are basically in line with what Golden did as well.


      So in short: please stop jumping to conclusions about a game nobody but a select few haven't played and not even in our native language. 

    4. Polkadi~☆


      Other players have explored other parts. They are inconsequential at best.


      And new garbage, Wraith? A lot of the content is just what I’d call padding and useless to the gameplay loop. They serve very little purpose. You’re right about Kasumi though, she really is just the poster girl meant to sell the game, and not much else.

      When I hear that they’re really changing up the game, I expect that to be followed upon. But it’s just the same game again, making Scramble look a lot more appealing now.

    5. Kuzu


      As I  literally just said, the game isn't out in English yet. The game hasn't even been out for a week? How, pray tell, are you going to judge everything in the game purely through word of mouth, when half of the people can't even understand the language the game is in?


      Like, I'm not even 100% sold on the game yet either, but people are legit already calling the game a waste of time, with almost nothing substantial to actually go off of besides word of mouth and a language that most cannot read. This is like basic logic right here. 

    6. Polkadi~☆


      People can translate the game into English, and there’s the word of Japanese players, but alright, I’ll stop.

    7. Kuzu


      The Internet is NOTORIOUS for spreading misinformation dude, come on. If the game sucks, fine. I'm not really too keen on the fact that its literally on the same console as the original being charged at full price. But I'm also not going to jump the gun and draw conclusions on information that can be extremely faulty to begin with. 


    8. Ryannumber1gamer


      I find it kind of hard to believe that the same company that not only made Golden, but somehow managed to retool Catherine into having another plotline, another ending, Persona 5 content, and what have you would be so lazy as to just fart out Persona 5 again.

      I mean, I could be wrong, I haven't been following P5R at all, but considering the early leaks of Morgana's additional plotline, new palaces, and a literal new playable character, as well as palaces revamped for the grappling hook, I find it a bit hard to believe it's that lazy.

    9. Kuzu


      From what I've seen, in terms of the main campaign, the base game from the original is virtually untouched; you get a few things like Palace changes and new boss gimmicks, but the storyline is basically untouched until after the original final boss is defeated at which it transitions to the new story arc.  The new playable character does not join you full time until roughly 1/3rd of this new story arc, but said arc is the longest in the game by far to compensate that. 

      All of that is mostly what I know from the stream. That being said, I think people expected them to rewrite the entire game from the ground up and address the issues of the original game, which is ridiculous because Atlus have never done that when it comes to their re-releases and never touch the base game at all. 

    10. Sean


      does this mean I don't have to feel bad for buying the original version a few weeks before Royal was teased/announced anymore

    11. Polkadi~☆


      the extra stuff is all non-canon, so yes

    12. Kuzu


      @Sean Knock yourself out. I honestly wouldn't recommend Royal unless you're a big fan of the series. Otherwise, you can just play the original and be fine. 

    13. Sean
  17. (to the tune of Ride On, Shooting Star)




    my mind wandered into this and i absolutely despise this discovery

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      You’re only just now finding out about FLCL’s insanely good soundtrack? My man, get the album on Spotify

      Star Overhead is another great song by the Pillows used for the Alternative sequel series

    2. Polkadi~☆


      There's no one who doesn't know about FLCL's soundtrack :p Everything about the series is just completely letting loose and having fun, because oh man, do the animators get their much needed time to cool off from non-stop Evangelion.

      All I did was make a startling discovery I wish I didn't make, because my mind made a strange connection.

  18. I started reading Spy X Family since I heard so much about it.

    It’s good, and I enjoy it! It’s a unique concept, and I love reading on to see what everyone will do.

  19. High school is really over, huh... Now that I've finished the one last part of it, that being my apprenticeship, it's over. Now it's time for university.

    Interesting times...

  20. and no one noticed azoo posting on his art thread?


    1. azoo


      i have chameleonized into the aether, i am now just a passerby. life is good

    2. Polkadi~☆


      Always nice to have you drop by these boards again, Azoo. Have fun with life now, y'hear.

  21. I have an announcement that I... DO NOT own Mario Kart Wii. I didn't know how to break this to you all, but I never got Mario Kart Wii at any point in my life...

    1. Adamabba


      do you even like video games

    2. Polkadi~☆


      I wonder about that sometimes.

  22. that new pumpkin hill remix is slappin'

    it's like aquatic mine and pumpkin hill got together, and i'm loving it

    1. Adamabba


      It's krunk

  23. I have been reading Fullmetal Alchemist for the first time, and got to Volume 2. I haven't seen anything of the story.

    chapter 5 was not what i was expecting it to be

    oh nooooo...

    1. Zaysho


      -checks volumes-

      Oh, right.


    2. Adamabba


      What happened in chapter 5?

      was it the dog

    3. Polkadi~☆


      it was the dog

    4. Adamabba
    5. Sean


      The dog was the mastermind all along

  24. Beating the robot masters in Mega Man 8 is such a pain in the butt, that I got overexcited when beating Grenade Man, and yanked on my controller. Which yanked the PS1 off it's spot. And sent it careening to the floor. And knocking the disc out of place, freezing the game...

    Before I realised the disc was actually OUT OF PLACE, and that putting it back in place would fix the game, I reset the console.

    Which means that I didn't get to save my win, meaning I have to play the level over again.

    Damn it!!

    1. Sean


      Imagining this happening to one of my own consoles/games triggers me

    2. Polkadi~☆


      Trust me, my heart skipped two beats when it hit the ground. I was absolutely horrified.

      Retro consoles are cool, but man, they are not nearly as easy to use as modern consoles.

    3. Sean


      I like my retro collection but I can never be bothered hooking up my old systems anymore lol. It's easier to emulate what I have over putting up with controller cords, rusted pins, and busted N64 control sticks.

    4. Menace2Society


      Maybe it’s a indication that you should play Mega Man X4 instead.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      I ended up walking away from my first playthrough of MM8 during Clown Man's stage where you have to go through a big idiotic labyrinth, which considering this is the series with respawning enemies was not a good design choice.

  25. amy rose is voiced by kirby in japan

    the next time you hear a "Poyo!" you will now think of amy

    1. Strong Guy

      Strong Guy

      I always thought Amy would be a perfect fit in a Kirby game

    2. Sean


      Oh, so that's who voices Kirby in the Kirby's Adventure drama CD? Because Kirby's usual VA is Makiko Ohmoto (the games, anime, Smash, etc.)

    3. Polkadi~☆


      As it happens to be, because I found it in Taeko Kawata's filmography. I mean, she's not the current Kirby, but she could probably do it.

    4. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon
