  1. Ugh. Got word that a friend of my younger sister died today. That was unpleasant. I may not have known her as well, but any death is tragic  and my sister was devastated by it.

      Oh no, sorry to hear that! You have my condolences. Was it painless, at least?

      That's awful. Stay vigilant and lookout for your sister.

      I don't know if it was related but my youngest nephew lost a friend who took his own life and it felt like my nephew changed since then. In the span of months, he'd runaway from home, move in with a girlfriend (And her parents.) and would barely bother to stay in touch.

      Nobody saw it coming and the fact that his brother had to contact him to get a Happy Birthday this year, only to then casually learn he got the Corona Virus, really hurts.

      It annoys Vasquez too, so that's a plus.

  3. I swear, the more I think about Wreck-It-Ralph 2, the more problems I realize it has. And not in a way that it's really enjoyable outside of sections and certain characters either.

    1. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Between Ralph Breaks the Internet, Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4 Disney was really slacking when it came to sequels.

    2. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Also, Frozen 2 and Maleficent 2.

      And god were they repeating the whole "gotta split ways" message ad nauseum too.....and not necessarily doing it well either.

    3. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Wait was this basically the new trend for them? Before it was the “Twist villain” that they kept relying on for a while.

    4. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Yeah, WiR2: Gotta go separate ways. Frozen 2: Gotta go to separate kingdoms.

      Toy Story 4: That fucking ending. Maleficent 2: Lather, rinse and repeat.

    5. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      But going back to WiR2 I just feel like they had no idea what to do with this one. I remember the original talks were to be talking about online gaming and talked about the idea of having Mario make a cameo in it(Still mad). But this felt like "hey look at all the internet jokes and references that we can make" which will feel dated in a few years because the problem with the internet is that memes move fast. It says a lot that the funniest thing in the movie was the post credits scene with Baby Moana even tho that was in the trailer. 

      And Ralph he's both an asshole and a dumbass in this film. In the first one he's a well meaning guy that wanted to be loved after being hated for 30 years. His intention was to prove that he could be hero and didn't mean to harm anybody or anything but things through and they were more accidents than anything.

      This one he was actively trying to sabotage a game just so Penelope wouldn't leave him. Like I get it he's never had a friend before so he's not used to disagreements etc(even tho he has company now) but pheeeew this was beyond stupid even by this films standards. He's clearly meant to be in the wrong but the way it was handled was poorly done. 

    6. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      And that's not even getting into how much of an asshole Vanellope is in that movie. Girl knowingly jeopardizes her game taking a shortcut which would be much safer to do in her off-time.

      Pretty much abandons her game, going Turbo, knowing that it could have a negative effect on things (as she's the most popular character of that game!!!!)

      The movie acts like Vanellope's in the right, despite her overall disregard for Ralph's feelings, and I can't help but feel like her whole transition feels.....kind of phony in the long run.

      She was part of the problem that got her game into jeopardy, but she faces none of the consequences or responsibility.

      Here's one thing I felt Disney and Pixar did the "going seperate ways" thing well:

       

      Walking out on doing more animated sequels.

      @Dejimon11 And that's not even getting into the wasted potential with Calhoun and Fix-It-Felix's sub-plot, just getting outright skipped.

      It's kind of a miracle that WiR2 didn't have Yeszzzzzz be the twist villain.

      Before it was the “Twist villain” that they kept relying on for a while.

      They're still kind of doing it, but not as much.

  4. The transition from gloom and doom to "the colors actually do feel pretty right" regarding Sonic Colors Ultimate has been entertaining.

    Honestly, including the movie, it'll be an interesting new trend if Origins gets it as well: Sonic product comes about with low expectations, only to turn out actually pretty good if not great.

    1. Jack-al

      Jack-al

      The package in terms of new additions and quality of life improvements was good from the get go, if they used decent footage from the beginning reaction would have been less divisive but okay, it's better now.

      Now I just hope they give us the option to play with the 2010 original music since I still find the new soundtrack a mixed bag, not to mention unecessary.

    3. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      @Jack-al I'm well aware. It's just that again, in some shape or form, Sonic has managed to defy doom and gloom. I would like to see this be the first phase in this potential Comeback Era.

    4. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      @pppp It's the Kingdom Hearts 1.5 & 2.5 albums all other again. It's a mix of improvements and not-so-needed ones, with a few downgrades again.

      Hopefully unlike those games, the option is there.

    5. pppp

      pppp

      That and can someone please make Sonic less shiny? And why are Tropical Resort's colors still not as vibrant as in the original?

    6. pppp

      pppp

      Oh and while we're at it, could we please turn off the motion blur effect with the boost? It looks bad and it causes people like Shiroi to not be able to play.

  5. Easily choosing the desk-slam option.

  6. Ah, so that's how Edgeworth managed after Turnabout Sisters.

    Holy cow, Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is fantastic. I really do hope the word of Shu Takumi being in charge of Ace Attorney 7 is true. Cause this man's definitely still got it.

      The State of California opens a case on them after years of studying closely, then Activision-Blizzard proceeds to bungle absolutely everything in just a few days in reply, thereby proving the case a shoe-in.

  9. A call heard across the galaxy. 

  10. It feels so good to be finally playing Great Ace Attorney Chronicles with my own two hands!

  11. The MCU better not pull another Phil Coulson with Loki...ironically enough. 

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I doubt it. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D was always just ""connected"" to the MCU, in that it was an order from the asshole head of Marvel at the time, and Marvel Studios did their best to not have to deal with it whenever they could.

      Loki is something specifically set-up in Endgame, and this is a proper MCU production that feels like it ties into the films proper. Even the ending seems to be what kicks in motion two later movies.

  12. f68a32652eb4f73dc80a5faf21a21bfc.png

    Ace Attorney/Ghost Trick would make for one hell of a crossover. 

  13. Contrary to the popular belief of people looking to wrongfully scapegoat, no, Iizuka was not the one who came up with the dumb "Two Worlds" mandate. That was just something he reported.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      How do we know there even was a two worlds mandate in the first place and what Iizuka said was a matter of poor communication on the part of whoever told him that?

    2. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Because we've known about it before Iizuka mentioned it.

  14. So, with the "Two Worlds" BS taken care of, now they just need to get rid of the Classic/Modern split.

      @Dr. Mechano I mean, it's been effectively removed from play, according to the Bumblekast interview.

      Good riddance to it.

  15. Wait, they finally got rid of the "Two Worlds" mandate?

  16. Wow, this one's a wild ride. Amazing to hear that the game apparently still hasn't turned over a profit, not that I'm too surprised.

      Uhh I think it's in reply settings? I did it once before but I don't remember how I did...try pasting in a link and then highlighting it and then I think it should give an option to change it.

      This video was only pasted in as a test.

    C'mon Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, the better you sell, the more the series can get the recognition it deserves from consumers and Capcom alike.

    And hopefully get us Ace Attorney 7.

    It would make this year wonderful, along with Phoenix Wright getting into Smash as a fighter.

      Part of me is still expecting them to announce AA7 sometime in fall, around TGS, when GAA has been out for a while and we're closer to the anniversary.

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      It's made worse by the blatant lies. They swore up and down that this show called "He-Man & The Masters of the Universe: Revelation", would be about He-Man. And look what we actually got.

      It's up in there in lying media alongside Last of Us 2.

    11. AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      The first episode....is arguably the best. It's the most He-Man you're gonna get from that show.

    13. Kuzu

      Whether you like the show or not depends entirely on if the remaining supporting cast can grab you and if how much you like Teela as the protagonist.

      And Teela's the other big half of the problems with this show. Ugh,

      Only for the former to die again. Also, technically not He-Man, but Adam.

       

    15. Soniman

      Soniman

      I'm not sure why they did this after a very well liked She Ra adaptation, like I think just having a regular He Man show would be fine to appeal to those fans for a change but I guess that's not what they had in mind 

    16. Kuzu

      No, Kevin Smith confirmed that Adam is still alive. Just wounded as of the finale. So he'll be back for the second half.

      Please don't be those types of people who come off as hating the show because it has a woman as the main character. 

      I'll fully admit the false advertising of the show is a huge problem, but the way its being presented by people makes the whole thing come off as sexist when that's probably not the intention.

      As was stated before, it's more so the character not being appealing in this new show.

      Seriously, they turn Teela in a massive asshole. As mentioned before, girl throws a hissy fit at the parents who just find out that their son is He-Man AND that he's dead.

      And she doesn't get much better from that.

      Besides, said woman already was a main character, so that's not really the hot seat issue.

      Jova, the reason you're coming off "that way" is mainly because of this comment:

      Quote

      One where the women can go and lament about how they were held back by men and all that shit.

      It comes off as being upset because "show about women," and not because "show bad."

      Like, the new He-Man might very well be as bad as you say (don't know, haven't watched), but going on some tangent about how women be complaining doesn't really have anything to do with the show's quality as far as I can tell.

      That's likely why people are side-eyeing you here, not just because you happen to dislike a cartoon. It's possible people are misreading your intentions, so maybe it'd be a good idea to clear things up.

    24. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      @Dr. Mechano Already handled,  but most didn't misread it as such, only one in this case.

      @Perkilator Uhhh no. No it didn't go well. I'll check back if things improve, but the character handling,  plotting, and misleading marketing took the winds out of the sails massively.

      @BadBehaviorI suppose the fact that I had no idea of that, might be a good place to start.

      Second, the Thor example certainly wasn't a controversy that aroused hatred, looking back at things, now that you've informed me of this example's existence.

      Not that Disney don't have problems, including deceptive lies at times.

      Gonna be completely honest here. Haven't watched the latest season so I'm not going to watch this as I still plan to and won't be spoiled. While I'm sure the person here makes some fair critiques... gotta be real here, this whole "*insert show here* sucks" format of videos grew tiring at least 5 years ago. Especially when it comes to shows like RWBY where if you simply type the name of it into yt half the results for it come back as these hour long pieces.

      The show has its pros and also it's many... many cons but I struggle to believe that any of these new videos now fill their runtime with takes that weren't being said over half a decade now. Idk, again, I'm not in any position to talk but still, this format of video is just numbing to me now lol.

      RWBY is like Sonic. Its not very good, and terrible in many ways, but its got a cool aesthetic and people love the characters.
