  1. The Dimps games were rereleased on the Wii U Virtual Console in Japan, but presumably weren't done in the West due to publishing rights issues with THQ (at least so I've heard from other speculation). I would like to see something like a GBA collection though. Personal ideal is Advance 1-3, Battle and Pinball Party, maybe with options of an upgraded, not garbage sounding version of the music. These games aren't even my personal favorites or anything (I don't even have any interest in Pinball Party, but it's there so why not), but I think it'd be nice to see them again even more so than a complete classic collection.
  2. He behaves like a wannabe journalist with insider information and throws tantrums when people question him. ResetERA has banned him multiple times for this and it's obvious to most people he just chucks darts at a wall from what little info he does actually find. He did this last year during Nintendo's content drought and, to no one's surprise, he was wrong. He couldn't even call the Colors remaster until a storefront leaked it and then he took credit that he knew all along. So for him to come out and claim Sonic 3, one of the most important games in the series stuck in legal hell, is getting a new rerelease in over a decade, is especially bold for a guy that couldn't Google search to confirm where a fucking Mario Kart 8 render came from before claiming it was a new game. And in the off chance one of these darts actually hits the board, it'll be coincidence anyway. I've said before I don't even care if what he says is true or not, he dangles information in front of a mob that wants news and then gets pissed when they give him the attention he's begging for because he clearly can't handle it. If anything you say will compromise real people's jobs then you shouldn't be parading around that you have TOP SECRET INFO in the first place if you can't handle what comes next.
  3. Crazy to think they ended the Fighter's Pass on such a high note with Pyra and Mythra but want to give us two bonus characters anyway.

      They need to add Mario into the game! I may be a Boogerman main with a Rathalos sub but I want to believe!

      Oh I'm so glad there totally gonna announce at E3 that they bringing in Cinderace over a dumb character like Crash

      I mean Pyra is the good one, but Mythra has crits for days so she gets top spot in the party.

      edit: I'd totally take Cinderace over Crash tbh lmao

      As far as I'm concerned Monolith carries Nintendo these days beyond the Xeno games so the last two characters should be whatever they want to have in there tbh.

      Most  of the characters i wanted are in as ATs or costumes anyway, so at this point i really don't have much to wish for. Maybe Doomguy, but i don't have my hopes up.

      It's honestly hard to think of what big, crowd-pleasing mainstream choices I personally would get much out of, so I'm just here for the ride at this point.  I'd love for a Sonic rep to "fix up" Sonic's overall representation in the game like what Final Fantasy got (or even less likely, a Wario Land rep to fix up Wario's Warioware-heavy representation), but I don't think even Sonic would be a crowd-pleaser (Wario would definitely be absurdly niché at this point).

    14. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      This pass has been stupidly hard to guess where they can go with it to finish it off honestly. I think Tails at least would be a crowd pleaser but maybe my bias as a Sonic fan colors that some. It'd be awkward if he's fully voiced when Sonic uses stock clips and, more importantly, Roger left so it'd kinda be salt in the wound that Roger never got to really be in Smash but I don't think it matters outside of English. I've considered Sora would be a good closer but I think he has way too many strings attached with Disney and his voice actor that he'd end up like Cloud did before Sephiroth that I'm not sure.

      But yeah, honestly the second Pyra burned that envelope I threw all my hopefuls in a shredder so anything goes for me lol

      why does Mythra say "I'll burn you" when Pyra is the one who burns. very confused

    16. JezMM

      JezMM

      I haven't played the game but the impression I get from Mythra's personality is that there's nothing fantastical about her threat, she's just gonna press your hand on a hot stove to punish you

    17. Jingilator

      Jingilator

      Okay, in all seriousness, I think Pyra/Mythra should've switched passes with Byleth and switch slots with Terry in Vol. 1.

      (On that note, I also think the TH rep should've been Edelgard)

      @Dejimon11 Then don't be surprised if it turns out Activision were never aiming with Crash to begin with

      Well yeah that’s why I predict Tracer would be in it and Crash would be a Mii costume :)

      I mean technically her concentrated light energy can still do that. And if you played Torna, you can tell it's a huge step up for her.

      (On that note, I also think the TH rep should've been Edelgard)

      Even as much as I dog on Byleth (which I admit I was overbearing about--I wanted Edelgard just to mix things up with FE a little bit) I'm ultimately fine with how things have shaken out, and even if I never got my girls I think I'd still feel the same way. Yeah, I'd be disappointed, because the Xenoblade games mean a lot to me (which is why the Xeno fanbase being as petty as the Sonic fanbase sucks for me), but it is what it is. Hell, at least Banjo got in and that was a character people called impossible.

      In general season 1 felt like its main focus was wide audience appeal and mostly historically significant and unique picks. Persona is a popular modern JRPG series, spun off of classic Shin Megami Tensei games, and offers something really different. Dragon Quest is the classic JRPG with an iconic look that serves as a counterpoint to Persona. Banjo is huge with diehard Nintendo fans. Terry is a big deal for fighting games on a level similar to Ryu. Byleth does run counter to that, but it's almost a given at this point that Smash will serve as FE's billboard that it would've been nice to mix things up with a series that is not exactly underrepresented. I get they all play differently (because I have or do use them) but there's so much more to that series from my perspective (as someone who hasn't gotten to play them) that feels left on the table.

      Season 2 generally feels like "overflow" or things they had planned but had to put on hold because they weren't sure they'd get to them until late in development. ARMS was a long time coming. Minecraft was rumored since Ultimate's reveal and needing to rework the stages to support the mining ability makes me think they were looking at Steve for much longer than most. Sephiroth is a curveball, but it wouldn't surprise me if adding a new character was a condition to getting any FF7 content from Square; Cloud didn't even get his original artwork before the DLC. They openly stated they wanted XC2 rep but had to settle on a costume, and it's pretty clear they wanted to design a fighting style closer to the game but it was too difficult.

  4. Maybe just stop giving entitled children attention. Ian's writing isn't perfect (though he and the other comic staff at least give a shit which is far more than I can say about Sega) and is open to criticism but you aren't going to reason with idiots who want to be mad at him for things he literally doesn't control. There's zero reason to keep dredging this shit up that you found on Reddit/Twitter/YouTube and bringing it here.
  5. Something that I thought was actually kind of fun/interesting about Janemba was the idea that his spirit was actually of an organized crime kingpin in the Demon World that ended up in Hell that was in Buu's Fury. I've never played the game but I thought that was a unique twist to his background and I think combining that with the dimensional shifting powers would make for a hell of a spectacle if put into a proper story.
  6. I honestly prefer the 90s Toei material to nearly anything Toei has churned out with Super (I mostly like Beerus and Whis and, to a lesser extent, Jaco), so I'm not really opposed to them just going nuts and recreating some of those characters. It's not really the same approach where Heroes just throws everything together into lengthy commercials to sell cards. Yeah, both approaches are obviously for fanservice but they're done differently enough that I think there's enough value in keeping that stuff around. Broli is hardly the only character or concept with untapped potential--and if anything he was far more illustrative of the problem Dragon Ball had with its image--so it's weird to be selective about it to me. There's plenty of creative ideas for Coola and Janemba in even the games. I honestly only care about them staying villains because we've added enough new friends to Goku's crew and they're benched half the time except for Vegeta and Freeza (and potentially Broli).
  7. I have mixed feelings on bringing back Coola only because I really like him don't want to lose something to the character. I know that's a weird statement to make when most of the old movie villains are varying degrees of derivative and shallow to begin with, but he always felt a bit better put together and logical than the others. It's totally a bias thing because I love his design, and in particular his transformation, and some of this is influenced by the dub either emphasizing, if not adding, the whole sibling rivalry to Freeza and making his personality as opposite as possible (which seems to be an influence on the games and stuff). I think the other thing too is that I'd like to keep a Toei creation actually a villain for a change and not just new flavor of the week rival who's gonna get replaced again next time and Coola is a character they could go that direction with just to offset Freeza being the (amazing) little shit he is and that Frost was basically just Freeza again anyway. I could be down with the idea if Coola turned out to be some intergalactic superhero and his Armored Squad are Ginyu Force rejects/sidekicks who clash with Freeza's army all the time but it's not a direction he should go in (even if the idea is kind of funny to me). DB Minus and Broli have both kind of just make me wary of that being a pattern, I suppose. I will grant though that Broli was actually a well done retelling but he was also a nothing, creator's pet character Toei kept shoving into the spotlight for years to the point that they created Kale just a couple years before making Toriyama rewrite the actual character anyway.

      clout chasing "insiders," both real and fake ones, have become a cancer on video game discussion

  11. The only real issue I saw with the Forces trailer, in hindsight anyway, is just the lack of communicating what it even was. It was mostly about recapturing the goodwill from Generations practically beat for beat with a pretty concept trailer. It's especially kind of jarring because they were so upfront about Mania, which was announced the same night (and I admit I was kinda bitter about the trailer because Mania had the classic trio back together and Project 2017 was just "look, it's Sonic and Sonic teaming up... again!"). I get that the game probably didn't really start getting work done until after that trailer was shown though. My only real hope is if there is something next month (whether that's E3 or the anniversary--my guess is Colors will be in Nintendo's Direct at E3 and Sega holds off anything else for their own thing later) that it just has a bit more substance than a concept trailer and we kind of know what we're in for. I'm not too picky about when it releases, though I agree with a holiday release just in the hopes of it maximizing their time.

      @Jovahexeon The Undyne That's literally all it ever was. Bubsy would have been completely forgotten if not for the memes and bile fascination surrounding the games in the 2010s. 

  13. I don't think you're obligated to give out anything, but to be perfectly honest, assuming you've actually been entrusted with sensitive information on the matter it's about time to just shut up if you don't want this kind of attention to begin with. It should've begun and ended with you contacting relevant parties (who probably can't do anything with this information anyway) and not also trying to soak up clout playing pretend journalist. I remember how that worked out for Sabi and I suspect it'll happen to you too, Zippo. And, no, I have zero interest in whether you're actually telling the truth. Just fucking stop.
  14. Is there a good refresher for the Ace Attorney series? I've been putting off playing the third game for over a year now but there's some story/character things I don't remember that clearly at this point. I could just marathon the first two games again I guess, even though I found AA2 to be kind of miserable at the time even if it has some good moments here and there.

    1. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      The games in general often give you enough of a refresher, unless you want straight on spoiler details for certain things.

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I’d say watch the first season of the anime.....then go into 3

    3. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      @Jovahexeon The Undyne Yeah I think I want to get more into the cases/plots. I'm just hazy on some things and mostly just remember broad strokes and my general feelings but I don't know if I'll really appreciate playing 3 without some better knowledge.

    4. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      IN that case, I would recommended playing the games back to back to back.

      Especially with some of the nifty throwbacks to 2 & 1 that 3 gives.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The anime probably isn't a bad place to start if you want a refresher, but I can't say that I really recommend it. It's awful. But the main story beats are there and unchanged. You'll lose many of the subtleties, and less important points about the cases are different too.

      I'd say replay the games back to back. You'll get through them much faster and you.might even pick up on details that you completely missed the first time around. Ooor... Watch/listen to a bound LP on YouTube. I've found that sometimes I'd rather do the latter than actually replay the games myself sometimes now. It's fun experiencing the games for the first time, and with an LP you get to see someone do that. It's fun, honestly. Just make sure that you can bare to listen to them reading out the characters dialogue for hours on end. Who you can stand and who you can't will be entirely subjective.

  15. Topic is locked since it's not really much of a discussion.
  16. Imagine criticizing someone for not making something more original when your entire branding (Floating Island Productions) and intellectual property is derivative of a property you refuse to move on from. There's throwing stones in glass houses, and then there's detonating TNT in them.

  18. I honestly can't be bothered to watch the video because a channel that appears dedicated to hating Ian is not going to be honest about what information they're presenting anyway. The way comic sales are tracked is a little different. I don't know about that particular letter, but I assume it's reflecting K-Mart's sales specifically, but K-Mart is a different entity from the Direct Market, which is what Diamond distributes through and where comic book stores order their supplies. DM, from what I understood a few years ago, works on a pre-order system and the number of units shipped out are the total sales of a given book every month. It's also why variant covers are more common these days; it's more units produced in a smaller amount that requires a store to order more copies to get them so that raises the overall number of units sold, so stores mark up the variants because of this. Archie even tried a particularly stupid version of this one year where they published additional endings for variants just to try to get people to buy multiple copies. It blew up in their faces, and I for one was happy about that. Stores like K-Mart, Wal-Mart, various bookstores etc. are not a part of the Direct Market, so their sales numbers are different. Archie books (not exclusively Sonic) traditionally sold better in newsstands from what I remember and they also sold their own books through subscriptions. I don't know how easy it is to normally track those numbers; I believe Archie used to publish sales information annually in the Sonic books that probably gives a better picture of their distribution than Comicchron (which tracks only the direct market) does. 1994 is also the peak of Sonic's original popularity so I think it's fair to say it's not surprising a kids book based on the character would sell well in places kids were more likely to get their comics at the time (which also happened to be a place Sonic games were sold at the time). While it's impressive that Sonic outsold a Marvel book one month, this is only accounting for K-Mart's sales numbers. It's not indicative of any other stores or the direct market. Maybe that was a decent time for the book since it was early on and Sonic 3 had just come out but I don't think it was the norm. If Ken Penders is reliable about some of his old accounts, it was actually a big deal when Wal-Mart stopped carrying comic books for a time in the late 90s because that probably affected Archie's bottom line worse than other publishers. Penders actually blamed this happening for the Knuckles book being cancelled, and while I don't doubt this affected several plans and it's why the Sonic Adventure arc is even weirder than it already was, the book also typically didn't sell well in general and certainly not as well as the mainline Sonic book. I'm willing to admit I don't know all the specifics, so this is more of a surface understanding I have from things I've read or heard over the years. Regardless, I don't think videos like the ones you keep linking are really worth much or any consideration because they seem like they're just looking for anything that supports a point they want to make.
  19. Please stop giving trash YouTubers the attention they don't deserve.
  20. I still don't understand what makes him think this is legal but I'm going to laugh if it turns out the "remastering" process was blacking out Sega characters or something.
  21. I could have sworn the D6 had a group spirit like the Chaotix did but now that I'm looking at the list I'm kind of surprised that isn't the case. Especially since Zavok is represented by a giant Incineroar in Sonic's classic mode.
  22. Yeah, I figure if there's a new scenario or some addition that requires it it'll make the most sense to just replace Smith and Higgins but if it's just a normal remaster with no extras I assume the old stuff won't be touched since there's not a reason for it beyond consistency. It ultimately won't be a deal breaker since the last time I played Colors at all was in Japanese anyway, I just think it'd be a shame if Sega decided to mess with the old stuff for no reason.
  23. As someone who doesn't like Colors for it being the start of the series' direction I don't personally like, and more specifically for an English script I don't like... it'll be pretty disappointing if a remaster of Smith's first Sonic game replaces him. Wouldn't really be fair to the new Sonic actor to have to replace someone else's work and I think it'd suck for Smith's work to be erased in that fashion.
  24. You probably would be better off at least sending a private message to the news staff and politely asking about it instead of complaining about a three months old article not being updated in a way you see fit. The moderation staff on the forum side of things don't really have any control over the articles let alone the TSS news e-mail.
  25. Would anyone happen to know where I can find the translations for the Sonic Channel short stories? I had posts about them bookmarked on Twitter to reference later but it looks like the account that had them is deleted.
