  1. look at it this way, they fixed the game gear's problem of being bulky as shit

    1. JosepHenry


      honestly this is revolutionary for solving such a problem

    2. PublicEnemy1


      And instead, they make it the opposite problem: it looks like it can break from someone touching it.

      I wonder how many batteries this one takes. 🙃

    4. Polkadi~☆


      better hope you've been stocking up on double As, chris

    5. Chris


      But where will my rechargeable battery packs go? Even one side is larger than this unit!

  3. I'm really fighting hard to complete my work... Writer's block certainly doesn't help. Gotta do better than this.

    1. Perkilator


      I know the feeling, be it schoolwork or Smash movesets for me.

  4. After spending so long reading ドクターエッグマン (Dr. Eggman), seeing a ドクターロボトニック (Doctor Robotnik) in Japanese feels like a crime against nature.

    Yeah, someone is going to hell for this.

      pfffft not even fucking close when it can’t manage it’s own people without resorting to murder 

  6. Walking around the neighbourhood for exercise was harder than I thought it’d be. Without my dog, it’s like I’m missing a leg. I can’t do it.

    Even my cat is depressed. She has gotten awfully clingy, is definitely very lonely, and is lacking in any sort of energy or motivation.

      Sorry if I'm intruding on anything personal here, but is there any reason your dog can't go with you?

    2. Polkadi~☆


      My dog is gone, Phantom. She passed away three days ago.

      Oh. I'm really sorry to hear that. It was none of my business to ask in the first place, so try to forget about what I said.

  8. so how's it going

    i'm locked out of an online class because i'm apparently still connected to the session, even though i have no device connected to the class, therefore locking me out completely

    and i can't contact my teacher, because they don't check their messages in class

      Actually started watching that show (the 2003 version) a month ago on Netflix. I’d say I really like what I’ve watched so far.

  10. My dog passed away.

    1. Perkilator


      Oh, no…sorry to hear that.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      It's a funny feeling, I only walked her three days ago. And she was so happy. Even in her old age, you'd still think she was an adorable little puppy. Oh, but she hated the cold wind like I did.

      My cat, who knew my dog since she was just a little kitten, knew something was wrong. Even as my dog was dying, she knew something was wrong before my mother figured it out. My cat's heart is also broken by this passing, they were best friends.

      Oh, we took my dog everywhere. If we were able to take her, then she came with us and got to see Australia. Oh, she loved me, and I loved her. Even as I played my games, drew my pictures, watched my movies, and did whatever it was that made me happy, she was right next to me (or on top of me), just happy that I was there. She was such a good dog, even keeping me company when I was lonely throughout primary and secondary school.

      I miss her so much. Oh god I miss Tess, and I love her so so much. I'm drowning in my tears for her as I type this. Oh my god I love her i love her i wish i treated her even better than i did because she deserves the world

    3. Sean


      I'm sorry :( Sounds like you really adored her. I've been there, I hope you'll be alright.

    4. Zaysho


      Very sorry to hear that, Polk. I remember what you were going through around Christmas, hope you can take some solace that it sounds like you did well by her.

      I'm so sorry to hear that.

    6. Polkadi~☆


      It's hard, isn't it? After realising she was on death's door last year, I begged and I pleaded for her to live through Christmas and to see 2020. We were blessed to see her 12th birthday recently, and it's all I could ask for.

      It's hard to lose someone. You just feel like they were never going to leave you, and that they were going to be by your side forever.

    7. Ryannumber1gamer


      I'm so sorry to hear this. You've got my condolences 

    8. Failinhearts


      I'm sorry for your loss, man.

      Emperor Robrainiac

      I'm so sorry, man. As someone who lost my dog a few months back, I know how you're feeling.

      It's so easy to remember all the regrets you have when you lose someone close to you... I was so sad I ended up getting sick. I'm sorry if this is too soon to say, but from what I am reading your dog had a damn good life, raised by people who loved and cared for her very much and she loved you all the same. No matter the bad times, she stuck by you and she loved you very much as well.

      I can't say the pain will go away soon. I admit, I am crying as I type this as well, for your dog and my own... as cliche as this sounds, always cheerish the good memories you have of her and the great life she had with you. 

    10. Polkadi~☆


      Heh, now that I think of it, the last time I won the day on this site according to my profile was when I said that my dog would live through Christmas into 2020. It'd be nice if that stayed, just as a little keepsake for my dog. I don't know if I'll post something that'll change that, but I kinda hope I don't.


      I'm doing my best to hold up in light of this, but this is really going to drag me down for a while. How about a nice game of Sonic, any of the classic games? It's been a long time since I've played 3&K.

      Very sorry to hear that. I love dogs and I want one, but reading this makes me now fear getting attached to animals. I know death happens, and we gotta live with it but still...😞

      I'm really sorry to hear that Polk. I know how its like losing a pet so I understand.

    13. Polkadi~☆


      @Pelvic WOO! engine

      Dogs are man's best friend for a reason. When you find the dog who fits your lifestyle and personality, you'll find yourself with the bestest friend you could ever ask for. Their lifespans are short in comparison to ours, but you'll never forget them.

      I'd say giving a child a dog is also a good life experience. They'll have a friend they can depend on, and they'll learn life, care, responsibility and death, just as I have.

      It's always devastating when losing a pet. Too many people take them for granted and get confused when people talk about them like a member of the family until it happens to them.

      Sorry for your loss, Polkadi. I hope you can be strong enough to make it through that pain. Your dog wouldn't want you to be sad, speaking from experience myself. Take care of yourself, okay?

      I really wish I could give more than an apology for your loss on a status update, dude.

      Never a good feeling losing a family member.

    20. NegaMetallix


      I'm very sorry for your loss.

      Believe me when I say I know the pain of losing a family dog, especially one who has been around for a long time. It's never easy, but I hope you do manage to make it through this incredibly tough time.

      Stay strong, Polk.

    21. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      I've never been especially close to the pets my family has owned, but whenever one of them eventually does leave, it always feels like there's some kind of hole left behind, no matter how distant they were. I can't imagine losing one that's by your own side for as long as you can remember them.

      Cherish her memories, and don't ever forget the joy she experienced while she lived. Stay well, man.

      @Pelvic WOO! engine: Stuff like this is heartbreaking but the reason why it's so devastating is exactly why it's worth it. Everything has to go eventually and it's understandable why you would be scared of that, but the comfort, joy, and warmth family members such as pets offer are what make life rich and worth living, so please don't be scared off from attachment in the long run. Live and love life to the fullest.

  11. I didn't think new DeviantART would be so bad.

    New DeviantART is really bad.

    1. Ferno


      And I JUST returned to that site recently 

    2. StaticMania


      Grateful for all the time where it wasn't forced on you.

    3. JezMM


      I have a soft-spot for deviantART and usually try my best to be positive about the site but it's so bad

      Did it just change again? The last change kept having bad loading problems on my laptop.

    5. Ferno


      Inb4 we get a roll-back to the old site by the end of the year with enough pushback... assuming they didn't somehow delete all the code or whatever that made up the essence of the old site and there's no going back

  12. Welp, one of my friends makes racist and anti-semitic jokes. It’s obviously shock humour, and I shamefully have to admit I laughed because I wasn’t prepared for something so horrible. We all agreed it was bad, though.

    Late night Jackbox is stupid.

  13. There we are, revisited and beat Portal 2 again. Fantastic game, clever writing, absolutely haunting atmosphere.

    ...i beat it in four hours, because i knew most of the solutions to the puzzles, lol. even those i forgot, i figured out quickly. i can see why i'm a "dangerous, mute lunatic"

  14. fuck it, time to revisit portal 2

      "you fool, I have 70 alternative accounts!"

  17. I just realised something about Evangelion, that Kaworu's one line ("In other words, I love you") actually links back to the end credits theme (Fly Me To The Moon). This is slightly changed in the Netflix version, that it no longer links back to the song. While the Netflix translation and re-dubbing may be more "accurate," it loses that thematic importance. I think it's a lesson in translating too literally.

    and yes i know, netflix doesn't have that credits theme. but the song is still intact in japan's netflix, so it's still a valid take.

    1. Sean


      also because Kaworu is fucking gay

    2. Polkadi~☆


      we know that, and his whole character and that one scene is important to shinji's character arc

      i don't like that the new translation, although more literal to the original script, lowers the impact of the line to the story by losing the meaning, among other issues

      it's the difference between carrying the meaning of the original and using google translate

    3. Sean


      The people who are against the original line also sometimes argue against Kaworu being gay and I don't get that. Like... whether the writers intended him to be that or not, the fact of the matter is that fans have interpreted him as gay for years and it's only now that that's being contested. It's similar to the backlash Sakamoto got for writing Samus as a passive weak waifu which iirc was an attempt to "correct" people's perception of Samus as a hardened badass who don't need no man. Artist intent isn't everything.

    4. Polkadi~☆


      Death of the author, and all that.

    5. Tornado


      lol "more accurate"

    6. Polkadi~☆


      why do you think it's in quotations

    7. Tornado


      No idea.

  18. making videos unable to be viewed in certain countries is the worst invention ever made on youtube

    like, youtube has done a lot of bad things

    but fuck you, i should be able to watch a video without moving to america

    1. DanJ86


      I've heard about a thing called a VPN that can be used to bypass such things. It must be perfectly legal as they are openly advertised. They help protect your private data and give you the ability to change your region to access content exclusive to that region.

      I don't have one but have been considering it.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      the thing is that i shouldn't need a vpn to watch videos

  21. I want to get into reading the old Spider-Man comics. And there's plenty of ways to, but they're difficult to get a hand on, and they REALLY aren't cheap. There's even a version of the series that's supposed to be cheaper to collect, as there's no colour and it's made on lower quality paper. That edition is still really expensive, if not more than other full-colour editions.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      If you haven’t read the series before, I’d recommend getting Ultimate Spidey (the Peter run) on Marvel’s comic app. It’s the only Spidey series I’ve read beginning to end.

      Plus, the app regularly has sales where the graphic novel releases are cheap (£2.99 here).

      In general, Marvel’s comic app is the best place to simply read the series in general, due to the sales.

    2. Speederino


      There's also Marvel Unlimited, a subscription service that lets you read most of their back catalog. It's probably the more expensive option, but they're all there.

      I originally read them via a CD-Rom collection in the mid 00's that had the first 500 issues of Amazing. It was fucking neat, it even included all the original ads (Normally I'd hate that, but in this case it's like a time capsule) The big downside was that things would get confusing when you'd hit a massive storyline that was spread across multiple books (Maximum Carnage, Clone Sage, etc). And sadly it doesn't really work on modern computers that well, as it was made to run with a now ancient version of Adobe.

    3. Polkadi~☆


      How about physical copies, which is my preferred way of reading? Those ones are expensive.

  22. i love how in four years, doomguy went from "oh yeah, he was in that old game, right?" to standing at the top of the gaming world with the big boys, packin' history and badassery

  23. i noticed an expiry date on a bottle of body wash soap i've got

    march 25 3003

    ...i shall pass this down the family line for my successors to use

  24. Rouge's first English VA is the only good one. Every VA after leans too far into the sultry angle and makes her annoying to listen to. Her lines in Forces: Episode Shadow drove me up the wall because it was trying too hard to be "sexy" when it really didn't need to.

    To be fair, the first VA was also the English voice director of that period, and likely knew the kind of deliveries she wanted. Every Rouge VA forward was under a different voice director, and could probably do a good Rouge if the directors stopped asking for a sultry delivery on EVERY SINGLE LINE.

    1. StaticMania


      Her 4Kids VA doesn't sound like she's doing that all the time...

      It's like...not sultry at all outside of Sonic X.

    2. Kuzu


      I don't really get "sultry" from her current VA tbh, but eh..different strokes. 

    3. Polkadi~☆


      i did make a generalisation, admittedly, because i kinda didn't pay much attention to rouge in the 4kids era, as i didn't really play anything she was in

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      I thought Rouge's 4Kids/X actress was pretty good. I didn't get sultry/sexy out of it, but more of a sly voice that always sounded somewhere between flirty and sarcastic. It fitted with her spy role, along with the backstabbing "I'm out for myself" kind of thing you'd expect with Rouge. 

      One of those sarcastic voices that would explain a shit situation to you, and then say "Shame I can't help you with that", or something along those lines.

    5. Thigolf


      I feel like her performance was pretty natural in Episode Shadow tbh.

      Also the delivery of the first one is really egh sometimes.
