  1. I finally saw a doctor, and I finally got my problem diagnosed! I've been getting hit with panic attacks over these past three weeks. It's not severe, but it IS an issue. My body gets anxious, and then pumps me full of adrenaline to combat whatever concerns it, even when nothing is happening. This status update (link) was from my first one, which I was completely unprepared for. There are triggers that cause the attacks, and I need to work past overcoming them.

    So I wasn't having some existential crisis after all, or some issue with loneliness! But those are all still part of the issue.

    1. SupahBerry


      See? Nothing to be so afraid if you know the facts on what's what.

    2. Tatters


      I wish for the best of you when you need to calm down.

      When I'm having those things happen to me I would write or listen to relaxing music.


      Heck even talking to someone will help out.

    3. Polkadi~♪


      I’ve found ways to calm down over these past three weeks. A cup of tea for me, or some reading, listening to music, and just idling. No, seriously, idling works when you’re in a panic.

      My doctor has said that those are good ways to fight it, and has shown me more ways as well.

      It’ll be gone soon enough.

      Try some vitamin d with fish oil supplements.

      Fish oil had been helping me with my after panic attacks from stopping birth control.

  2. My model kit figure of Mega Man's sister, Roll, came in! I assembled it over the afternoon, and it sits proudly on my shelf beside Proto Man! Now I need to get Mega Man himself...


    i feel a little uncomfortable that, while assembling, i found roll's panties as part of the figure, of which they were... oddly detailed in it's shape O_o

    1. Little T

      Little T

      That's actually the weakness of this model kit. My brother built her years ago, and because they put so much attention into.....realistic underwear modeling....the leg joints aren't very good. Poor Roll's legs keep falling off all the time. Hope you don't have the same problem!

    2. Polkadi~♪


      One leg joint is really strong and holds on tight, the other falls off if you get a little rough with it. Still stands up great, but the quality of the figure is inconsistent, with some parts like the head being great, while the arms are odd. Nothing that a teeny tiny bit of glue to hold parts together can't fix.

      I also need to paint both of my figures at some point...

    3. SupahBerry


      I really don't want to know what was going through Dr. Light's head when put so much time into that when making Roll

    4. Polkadi~♪


      For Dr Light, it's putting underwear on her, fair enough. Many humans wear underwear, only fair that a human-like robot gets it too.

      For Kotobukiya, I have no idea. Just make it a white pelvis piece...

  3. I'm getting scared of even falling asleep.

    What the hell is happening to me.

    1. Lord-Dreamerz


      After you fall asleep and wake up later... you maybe will be in a new body within another dimension with horrible monsters and never can return back home. Falling asleep is scary indeed. :3

    2. Polkadi~♪


      Fun, but that doesn't reassure me much.

    3. DanJ86


      Can you identify the source of your fear?

      Sleep is where people can't hurt you. The days events are forgotten and all that matters is recharging. The worries of life and the crippling stupidity of the masses don't matter. Maybe it's my age but sleep is often the best time of my day.

    4. tailsBOOM!


      Maybe you should talk to a professional and get to the root of all this.  I find it very helpful to do that.

  4. Apparently, you're creating the home for the Villagers yourself. If you don't have a vacant home for them, they won't stay. That's what I've heard, at least. I could be wrong.
  5. Hey, you okay, Dan? The lack of an avatar, naming yourself "Nobody," this obviously isn't like you. You said you were made a fool of, and your optimism was seemingly put into question, and it all makes me worry for you.

    1. DanJ86


      I was just trying to give advice. A suggestion based on my observations and what I've been told. But what I got as a reply was "lol."

      That was it. I didn't care about the annoying members chiming in with opinions I didn't give a shit about. What made this hurt the most was that I was talking to a mod.

      I've been coming and going on this forum for 10 years and that was the first time I felt like I didn't belong.

      The update in which this occurred had since been deleted so I can't show what happened...

  6. Add Mega Man Star Force 4 to the list of cancelled Mega Man projects.


    well shit

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I'm still expecting Capcom to cancel MM11, issuing an update that removes it from systems.

  7. I think it's to do with people forgetting all the good things about Sonic, to blow the bad things out of proportion.
  8. If they want to do Sonic eSports (and they're seemingly not going to bother with Puyo Puyo around here ;n;), then I simply MUST suggest... a Sonic fighting game. Highly competitive, and highly fun to watch, especially if one goes for a unique take on the fighting game formula.
  9. how the fuck am i meant to explain that shadow the hedgehog is also donald trump

    i ssssshhhhHIT you not, kirk thornton has done voices for the both of them

    1. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Simple, if you like Shadow the Hedgehog, you also support Trump the Pussy Grabber


      Yeah this revelation...oof


    2. JosepHenry


      Well... Shadow likes cats and has a cat orphanage....

    3. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      The same way you explain that Shadow the Hedgehog is also Don Patch from Bobobo Bobo-Bobo.

  10. Whether people think it's ridiculous or not, Sonic Adventure 2 would work having an animated TV adaptation. The story works to split it up into episodes, there's plenty of action and fight scenes, many dynamics between Sonic and Shadow to follow, and there's more that can be added to the story to really flesh it out.

    It could be a really cool thing.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      We already know it and SA1 could work, Sonic X did it and SA1 was one of the few consistently good arcs they had in the show.

    2. Tarnish


      You dare imply that the Sonic X version rushing through the story and making Chris an important character just for the sake of it wasn't the best version that could ever exist?!

      Yeah, I'd agree with that.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Chris sucked in the SA2 adapt when he did that. In SA1 though, he pretty much just helped find Froggy, and that was tolerable.

  11. I love playing FSX, as well as my grandfather. There were fun missions to do, as well as free roaming across the Earth, maybe in a little biplane (my favourite type). But this announcement, I never saw it coming! And it looks absolutely amazing! I definitely can't wait to play this, and I'll have my joystick ready to go (maybe with an upgrade to my computer to make it look the best possible). I wonder how my hometown will look this time? FSX just layers city textures over it, so you don't actually see it, but that could change for this new game. Hm, maybe this is a good time to finally get a Steam copy of FSX too... The menu music is already playing in my head, ingrained.
  12. There is apparently a Japanese release of IDW Sonic, unless I am mistaken in some way, as Yuji Uekawa has said he's happily following the series in the letter pages of the 2019 annual, despite him living in Japan. Maybe it's an import of the English books, or there really is a Japanese release, but I cannot find anything.
  13. I did mention that it was said Ganon reincarnated before his time, so perhaps this song had prophesied the event that was supposed to happen, which is this. Just, you know, with an angle no one saw coming.
  14. The song is just named after the thing. Came from an old DOOM comic, and became a central point of focus in the franchise. On a different note, how in the actual goddamn heck did people think that fan-design from earlier would be Sonic's new design? I knew it was fake from the moment I laid eyes on it, but others were super quick to panic.
  15. I'd rather Sonic characters looked more like Sonic, and less like rejected demons from DOOM...
  16. Watching the Animal Crossing Treehouse footage, Hisashi Nogami clearly still has a love for Splatoon :D

    His avatar resembles his squidsona(?) from the Squid Research Labs, and he's carrying a squid in his inventory.

    Oh, I love it! Never change, Nogami!

    1. Shiroi


      Precious! ^^

  17. Honestly, if Satoru Iwata never helped Gamefreak so long ago, I'm pretty sure Pokémon would be dead, all thanks to Gamefreak's sheer incompetence.

    1. Corviknight


      They're really out of touch of everything aren't they?

    2. Sapphirine Wind

      Sapphirine Wind

      Saw someone noting this; they went from two regions in one game on a Gameboy to... this.

    3. Polkadi~♪


      The two regions in one game was because of Iwata. Gamefreak were going to release gen 2, but it was a buggy unfun mess, with Yandere Simulator level of coding.

      Iwata helped them out, coded and optimised the game himself, and managed to fit a whole other region into the game. All things Gamefreak could never do.

      Truth is, Gamefreak caught lightning in a bottle, and then sat on their arses for 30 years.

    4. Corviknight


      You know I'm going to start my Youtube career talking about this and how much innovation GF has thrown away over the years. I really can't stay quiet about this as a genuine Pokemon fan. So uh look forward to it?

    5. tailsBOOM!


      Yeah, they had a bunch of unused crap in Sun and Moon taking up space like walking animations for Pokemon and what not.  I've honestly never been more disappointed in them as I was today.  I've always been able to see the light in what they do, but this goes against the core values of the series.

    6. shdowhunt60


      It's honestly kind of stunning how much Game Freak has been able to get away with. Like, the sort of shit that Call of Duty gets raked over the coals for, they get a free pass on. I've been saying this for years, this is why I stopped caring about Pokemon after Gen 3, because it really does amount to being the same cheaply made games that Game Freak's been making bank on for decades on.

      It's not even that I hate Pokemon. I still play the earlier games from time to time. But when I saw them showcasing gameplay, and there's just Wingull... Floating around in the air, with zero animation like this is fucking Everquest with the server shitting up so it can't properly sync animations... I was pretty damned unimpressed.

    7. SupahBerry


      And they say Sonic the Hedgehog's older games were only good by complete accident and luck.

      They ain't see nuttin yet.

  18. Finished Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time. Great story, but the ending did feel a little bit rushed in some sense.

    I'll just collect the rest of the Gold Bolts, then I'll go fight the bonus boss. And then it's New Game+ time.

  19. As I read around, it seems like manga has picked up more than western comic books as of late. Marvel and DC comics are on the decline, yet Asian webcomics and graphic novels are really getting stronger.

    I wonder what the difference is?

    1. DanJ86


      I haven't seen for myself but many have mentioned the writers of a lot of current western comics pushing political messages. Considering that comics are an escape, people don't appreciate that and vote with their wallets.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Which would explain the number of alt-right with moe avatars

    3. Ferno


      Finite stories with a clear beginning, middle and end that makes collecting them easier for one

      im jus saiyan

    4. Polkadi~♪


      Asian books can get political too, so I don't think that's it. I get the political agenda, though, as that's a common complaint. Plus, there's the "first issue" deal, as they keep using the one sales trick instead of just running with a series.

      I, for one, like it because it's consistent. If I want to start following a story, I can pick up the first volume in a series and start reading, because that is the definitive start. With Marvel, I really want to follow Spider-Man, but there's so many Spider-Man books that I don't know where to start, and not all of them are the same.

    5. Wraith


      It literally only has to do with accessibility. A lot of popular Manga have political themes.

    6. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Polkadi~♪ On the topic of Spider-Man, which did you want to read about? Miles or Peter?

      @Wraith I think you got it in one. Cape books are steeped in history and established continuity, I mean the X-men themselves are the most intimidating when it comes to this.

    7. Polkadi~♪


      I wanted to read more about Peter, but I checked my comic book store to find there's two books for that. Plus a Spider-Man & Deadpool book, and some IDW book with Peter, Miles and Gwen.

      And I think Wraith got it right, it is accessibility. I just said about how difficult it is for me to find a Spider-Man comic, as it has so much history and backstory that following just one book doesn't work. But being able to follow long-running manga is easy, as it's all still under one book series.

      Western comics being bad because of politics is bunk, though. Everything is political, even manga.

    8. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Polkadi~♪ Okay if you just want to read about Peter, all you need to look out for are the ongoing written by Nick Spencer:


      The second book you mentioned is basically side/more personal stories with spidey and the community. Avoid Deadpool & Spidey, and I don't even know what the hell the IDW book is supposed to be.

      But yeah just stick with the Nick Spencer run.

    9. Polkadi~♪


      Thank you very much! I will keep that in mind for my next trip at the end of the month!

      Hopefully, there's a first issue around somewhere that I can start from...

    10. DanJ86



      Western comics being bad because of politics is bunk, though. Everything is political, even manga.

      That's not what is meant by political.

      Politics in a story built around it is fine. When people complain about politics in comics/games, they mean agenda politics. Token minorities for "woke points."

      "Lets make Alfried a woman for more female representation." "X-Men have women in it. The name is outdated." "Captain Marvel should be gay."

      It pisses people off that long established characters are being altered for the sake of an agenda. Creating new characters with those traits are fine as long as they are believable and not overpowered to the point of being invincible.

      These seem to be the issue for some anyway.

    11. Polkadi~♪


      That's a political agenda, which I did mention in an admittedly throwaway line.

      Doing something new, like Miles Morales, is something I'm totally fine with. Changing what already exists, that drives me up the wall for disrespecting an old story with your political agenda, or for a weak twist (Hail Hydra, anyone?). If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    12. Wraith


      Comics have been on the decline for decades before Marvel's progressive wave and it continues even now after those characters have largely been abandoned or relegated to side books. It can't be blamed for the failings of an outdated medium that long missed the call to adapt to it's young readers's needs


      Another point: if you go by your parameters ("If it ain't broke don't fix it") you wouldn't actually have Miles to begin with. You have to be willing to take risks to break new ground with both established IPs and new properties.

    13. DanJ86


      I'd think what helped Miles was the writing and how he debuted. But I don't know how he first appeared in the comics. My first time seeing him was in Spider-Man PS4. Then I saw him again in Into The Spider-Verse.

    14. Polkadi~♪


      I can be incredibly naive, and I don't know much about the comic book industry. All I know is that they aren't as strong as they were long ago, and I'm just grasping at trying to find the answers why. Perhaps it's a sliding scale, that some new things can really hit it's stride, while others stumble and get a negative reception.

      You mention the needs of young readers, does the rise of manga have something to do with it? There's accessibility, but I wonder if there's more to it...

    15. Wraith


      Anime adaptations were all over kids channels from the 90s onward. With manga being easy to find online it was easy for people to jump on over and pick it up. Most manga online used to be illegal but now you can view it or most anime legally on any device with a screen.

      All that combines with there generally being one ONE PIECE or one NARUTO to read. They're more appealing by being completely self contained. They're not pulling from a history of lore or kicking off of some other series. The beginning is the beginning and the end is the end. Just find #1 or look up where the anime left off a d you're golden. 


      It's accessibility. Imo the comic book industry needs to solve this issue before pointing the finger anywhere else. 

    16. Ferno


      I also just wanna see single creator/ small team-driven graphic novels start taking off in the west in general. (or maybe I should specify the US tbh) There's plenty of non-cape stuff out there in the US, sure, but it always seems to be a niche thing; like the average person's mom over here will never know what Scott Pilgrim is, but they'll definitely know Spider-Man, and maybe even have a vague idea of what Naruto or Dragon Ball Z is, etc.

    17. Polkadi~♪


      That's a dream of mine, for sure. I love the idea of Jump magazines, and would love to see something similar in western territories. It doesn't have to be cape stories, it can be anything the creators want to make; all these works compiled into one magazine that, for instance, could be released monthly.

    18. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Polkadi~♪ & @Ferno So like... Kurt Busiek's Astro City?


      It's an anthology series all about hero/villian/civilian lives in this world.

    19. Polkadi~♪


      Close, but not quite it. Jump magazines have stories from all different kinds of writers and artists, all never following a unified theme (unless something is trendy :p). They're categorised in different magazines based on the audience they can be marketed to, but the theme of the stories can be whatever the creator of the story wants. And the format can change too, whether it's a one-shot story, long-running story, whatever.

  20. This is true. The translation said that he rejected reincarnation, which caused him to enter a Calamity state. This is a mistranslation, as what happened is that he wanted to reincarnate faster, to come back before the time he was supposed to, which malformed him and put him in a Calamity state. You defeated Calamity Ganon, and now his true body is here. But it's demented and malformed thanks to the Calamity. We're going to fight Ganon's true form, or what's left of it.

    1. tailsBOOM!


      People were.  It trended on Twitter.

  22. It's been long enough, but finally, a trailer. Looking at the gameplay, I've quite excited for this game!
  23. Dragon Quest and Banjo-Kazooie.

    I believe that's what is called a BOOYAH
