  1. Just call him Oswald, the world's fastest lucky rabbit.
  2. So the seller cancelled my BOTW order and now I can only buy it from Amazon at £47,99 now.  Knew it was too good to be true...  Back to the waiting game I guess.

  3. Finally found Breath of the Wild at a price me and my brothers were happy with.  God, I'm so hype to play this now...

      Wii U version? How much?

    2. QuantumEdge

      £30 from an Amazon seller.  It's probably as low as I'm ever gonna see it (think...)

      That's dirt cheap. Nice find. I paid the RRP for the Collector's Edition, and honestly I feel like the game alone was worth that price.

      I agree with that sentiment, but my inner Mr Krabs is just too strong to make do that same earlier :P

  4. So I'm not sure if it's already aired, but they're showing Watership Down... in the middle of the day...  Welp, another year, another bunch of stolen innocence from youngsters.

      I want them to air Plague Dogs to celebrate Crufts when it comes around. 

    2. ShroomZed

      Oh yeah don't they play that every year on Easter there? Reminds me of how I was watch Animals of Farthing Wood recently. 

    3. QuantumEdge

      QuantumEdge

      Yeah, I think they aired it last year as well.  No idea how the hell it gets a U rating...

      @VEDJ-F Oh god, I recently heard about that one.  Dear lord, Watchdog would have its letterbox flooded...

      Nothing new. I remember it being aired early afternoon most of the time in the UK. Hell the aforementioned Farthing Wood was aired on CBBC around the same time.

      Nature slice of life cartoons are extremely unreserved in showing they're humanising doomed prey really, even Disney's Bambi. Sure everyone remembers his mom dying, but I'm rather surprised people only remember that and the cute animals frolicking and not chilling stuff like this:

      I remember the goddamn quail, her panicked fleeing and paying the price for it fucked me up more than Bambi's mom being shot. 

    6. E-122-Psi

      The acting and music certainly doesn't help, you could anticipate her dying and it was painful to sit through. Allegedly John Williams was inspired to make the Jaws theme from this.

      *Well, it's a pheasant, but dead bird either way. 

    8. QuantumEdge

      Oh holy crud, do I remember that scene.  Unusually I'm not one who saw Bambi much, if ever when I was little, but even at my age I found it truly disturbing in how cruel and real it all was.

    9. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Pheasants can't seem to win in these cartoons. The female pheasant got an equally unpleasant death in Farthing Wood.

    10. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      Also the Male. 

    11. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      The female one was damn well graphic however, we saw a closeup of her dead body and later her cooked carcass on a window sill. Given how humanised she was beforehand, it was pretty morbid.

    12. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      True yes. And that was one of the cleaner deaths too. 

    13. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      I heard the show actually killed a lot MORE animals than the books. It was deeply real and heartbreaking at times though there are points I wonder if they were going for shock value.

      The Mother Hare being dragged away in the villain fox's teeth screaming for help was another traumatising one (though the Mother Rabbit dying the same way was kind of funny due to how dim she was).

    14. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      I haven't read the books (I plan to though!) but I do know that I think Badger and Mole continue to live through the books while they both die of old age in series 2. I think that some of the hedgehogs survive the motorway in the book too while they both die in the series. 

      Yeah I was thinking about the Mrs. Hare and Mrs. Rabbit specifically but also the mice impaled on the plant...

    15. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Badger and Mole seemed the most pointless ones since they just replaced them with similar characters anyway. I remember being sad about two of the fox cubs dying too. While it wasn't a death, the Adder's lower tail being ripped was kind of horrifying too, at least until she started snarking straight after anyway.

      Seriously Series 2's villain was a bastion of graphic moments. Ironically he himself got a rather subtle humiliating death last minute.

    16. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      Oh yeah I completely forgot about the cubs. Bold's story is legit really brutal. And yeah Adder can take anything XP. Also not quite as intense as some of the others but I remember when he freaking bit into Weasel's arm and forced her to lay there and shriek for a bit while he kept his teeth dug inside. 

      I've never really watched much of series 3 but it hasn't impressed me from what little I've seen of it. 

    17. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      I hear execs wanted it toned down for Series 3, only one death occurred, even if it was a rather sad one.

      Similarly I believe the Watership Down TV series got more whimsical as it went on, while the Bambi sequel expectedly had no deaths and followed the cutesy animals more (though I'll give credit, Disney at least tried to maintain some of the original's imagery with that sequel).

      I guess a story about cartoon animals will be expected to garner kid audiences so marketing will want it to be able to draw them in and not traumatise them.

  5. Oh god, I just realised a terrible truth.   The training with Rey and Luke... It's... a sci-fi The Next Karate Kid!

  6. New Star Wars trailer didn't do much for me.  Looks pretty likely they're rehashing the Hoth battle and the whole thing has stuff I feel like I've seen several times before.  I don't know, maybe it'll all work out.

    1. Boomer

      Boomer

      Your Hoth rehash prediction seems on point considering what else is returning...

  7. I'm still on the fence about adding another character again, but seriously we already have such a widely varied cast already it continues to baffle me with how they think it's not enough. I understand the complete and utter dismay at Green Hill. For all it's funky design and timeless music, this is what you teach at video game school as overkill of a good thing. Since it's looking more of he same though, I highly doubt it's going to be a scourge to the series. However I'm struggling to hype myself for this. Probably because I ain't got no console for it XP
  8. A bit of my hype died off when I saw no Misty and Brock and instead some new folks with pretty forgettable designs (can't help but think we've seen people like them before). Interesting that we've got non Gen I Pokémon, but I guess they've gotta promote Sun & Moon somehow. However if this is what's going to bring Ho-Oh into the spotlight, then so be it I guess...
  9. Reaction: The next Zelda is basically BOTW in Termina.

    1. JayRaR

      JayRaR

      ...it'd be like exploring another Hyrule wouldn't it?

      Excluding things like the time mechanic and transformation masks I assume.

    2. Mister X
    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      So it'd be a more condensed botw? Lol

    4. QuantumEdge

      QuantumEdge

      Since those parts are almost synonymous with Termina, I can't help but think they'd be included.

    5. Marcello

      Marcello

      Well, most of Termina's unique area types were in Hyrule in BOTW, so it'd feel less special.

  10. ... Christ, I'm hoping he's just pulling this outta his rear, or trolling. Because right now his vision of the comic just went from "Colossally misguided, delusions of grandeur" bad to down right creepy. I mean, I'll never treat this canon to Sonic, but still, what compelled him to even say that?
  11. Meh, title works for me.  It's not the most creative, but it sounds fine.

  12. I'm none too phased by the delays.  At this point they're practically a mainstay in the general gaming industry. 

  13. Been playing Twilight Princess HD.  Not a big fan of how long it takes to get to the meat of it, but damn that horseback battle with the goblins guys was worth all that tutorial-ing

  14. BOTW music spoiler

    I don't think the new Fairy Fountain theme is my absolute favourite.  Skyward Sword's still trumps it really.

  15. Besides we already had that going on in Majora. I'm not against the idea of them returning for round two of cow defence though
