  1. Speaking of weird anime dubs

    1. SupahBerry


      She was so shocked that her inside voice couldn't speak. So they built a robot Serena to cover for her.

      I love the way she delivered that line. It's like, "Holy crap. Really. Seriously. Wat."

      Without context, I can see the "lol robot speak" schlop folks are saying.

      However, WITH context, she just found out that this older annoying dickhead dude that's been picking on her and calling her names for the longest time is also the same guy she's been crushing on and fighting evil alongside (sorta, since he hardly does anything) for who knows how long. The deadpan inner voice response is exactly how she'd typically react to that due to her combined feeling of shock, disbelief and disgust. As someone who does this a lot, inner voice and out, and knows others that do, it's really not that weird.

      It's still hilarious, though.

      I fuckin' love the DiC Sailor Moon dub. Don't get me wrong, VIZ is great, but I just love DiC for nostalgia and cheese.

  2. You know, I hope Nintendo decides to do a 3DS successor, if only because there needs to be a cheaper alternative to the Switch out there.

      Does there really, though? I don't see any kind of point in a different system or handheld from the Switch and we already know that a cheaper model for the Switch will be out probably sometime next year and a stronger model will likely be out as well, so the main model will probably go down in price. Honestly, I don't think it's the system that needs to drop in price, but it's controllers and peripherals.

      Now personally, I wish the Switch had been backwards compatible to 3DS games like I hoped for before it came out so a lot fo those games could've been enjoyed on stronger hardware and on the big screen instead of dying with the handheld after the Switch overshadowed it.

      What would a 3DS successor even do that the Switch can't do a billion times more efficiently?

    3. Wraith


      There will be a lightweight Switch out soon that will fill this niche.

      I was thinking more in terms of the games than the system itself.

      Switch games are often a hell of a lot more expensive than 3DS games were, and are still more expensive than other consoles; if a game is multi-platform, the Switch version will always be more expensive than their PS4 or XBONE counterparts.

    5. Wraith


      I agree that that's a huge issue but Nintendo isn't going to change anything there as long as people continue to buy the games at ridiculous prices.

      I'm sorry, what?? I haven't bought a single multiplat game that was more expensive on the Switch than it was on the others. They're usually the same price of the Switch ones are a little cheaper in my area with one single exception. Since when was this a thing? (Not that it surprises me, considering Nintendo's greed)

    7. Ferno


      I'm just salty that we never got an HD dual screen nintendo handheld with 3D. ..come to think of it such a device probably would've eclipsed the price of the Switch..

      but I still wanted it to happen

    8. Wraith


      It's mostly a thing for older ports rather than new releases. An example is how the Resident Evil games are each 20 dollars more on the Switch than they are on other platforms.

      Using TSR as an example; at GAME in the UK, the Switch version costs £5 more than the other two.

      Oh, and that Sonic Mania/Forces bundle? £34.99 on PS4, £49.99 on Switch.

    10. NegaMetallix


      Yeah, in the UK at least, new Switch games are often around £5-£10 more expensive than their Xbox/PS4 counterparts.

      I think used multiplatform games generally have less of a price difference between consoles, though.

    11. Teoskaven


      It's because of the manufactoring costs of the cartridges, since unlike blue-rays and DVDs, the demands on the market is way less for general production.

    12. JezMM


      Honestly the biggest factor for me as to whether we need another 3DS instead of focusing on the Switch, is "can you make a Switch that fits into your pocket". The Switch is still pretty bulky to use for on-the-spot gaming (I don't ever see a kid wandering around Switch in hands like I do with a 3DS or parents' phone), though there is something to be said for phones rapidly eating that niché.

      Must just be a UK thing then, I guess.

      I fully agree with you by the way, @Ferno

      @JezMM I'm lucky in that I'm always walking around with one of many leather jackets on all year round that each have large pockets for me to slide my Switch right into while still in it's special grip with 5 extra game slots on the top of it so I can change cartridges at any time. If not for that, I'd either have to try in stuff it in my large yet already full pants pockets or keep a backpack around with me. (Which I already do use for work and playing the Switch on break, actually)

      I think the only reason I'm really used to finding out ways to bring the Switch around is because I had a Game Gear growing up, so the Switch is nothing in comparison to that thing.

    14. Ferno


      Tbh when I think about it the switch isn't much larger than a 3DS XL if you take the joycons off and put them in separate pockets (if your pockets are large enough to fit the switch in without joycons or you wear cargo pants etc.) But part of me still has paranoia about dust getting in the Switch's heat vent/ fan or something else happening to it if not in a case and/or in a bag when on the go vs a Gameboy/DS/3ds handheld

  3. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 50 posts to view.
  4. I’ve personally never been much of a fan of Roxas and Ventus being two individual people. My belief before Dream Drop Distance was that Roxas was literally just Ventus inhabiting Sora’s nobody (when Sora split into heartless and nobody, Ventus’ heart stayed inside the body, making the nobody resemble him instead of Sora).
  5. How many issues is Tangle & Whisper? I don’t recall if it was said anywhere.
  6. No idea how they’d even fit it on there without covering mystery-squid-thing.
  7. Does anyone else think IDW will just keep doing more individual mini-series’ starring side-characters rather than doing an ongoing Sonic Universe successor?

    1. Red


      If the Tangle and Whisper series does well I can see them doing more mini series. They're probably being very careful with it. The main book is the main attraction and they don't want anything to overshadow it.

  8. Remember when we got that clip of the Prince Ali scene from the new Aladdin the other week, and people were complaining that it was dull?

    I just saw the movie and in my honest opinion, that clip didn’t do it justice.

  9. This is really unsettling.

    You may want to speed through a bit if you don’t want to sit and watch for over an hour.

  10. I’m surprised that Nintendo are apparently considering follow-ups to the 3DS when the Switch kind of fills that role already.

    1. SupahBerry


      Where'd they say that?

    2. Ernest the Panda
    3. Milo


      That it "kind of" fills the role is probably why. The console/hybrid elements of the Switch arguably prevent it from being a pure/direct handheld successor to them. Recall that they are also planning to release new Switch models later this year, one of which is specifically described to be more of a handheld/portable, as well as cheaper, than the existing model.

      Switch is currently successful enough for them to probably not consider it seriously though, and just focus on one platform. You can see that with how they've quietly pulled back on 3DS support over the past couple of years.

    4. Cayenne


      I can see a future "Switch Mini" (the Switch we already know, but more suitable for portable gaming) being this supposed 3DS follow-up if Nintendo doesn't want to use another kind of gimmick similar to the DS and 3DS.

  11. Why is it called the roof of the mouth and not the ceiling?

    1. Diogenes


      because when you eat something hot the roof is on fire

  12. Quick interruption to say new graphic novel listing: https://www.amazon.com/Sonic-Hedgehog-Vol-Crisis-City/dp/1684056179/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=sonic&qid=1558534745&rnid=2941120011&s=books&sr=1-1
  13. This video has convinced me that homo sapiens are, indeed, not worth saving.

      "We have to find a way to live with the Homo Sapiens where they don't affect us and we don't affect them, kinda like in a separation kind of way."

      i too advocate for everyone to leave me alone thanks

      Magneto was right.

  14. Expanding the existing worlds that so desperately needed it (Twilight Town) would also have been preferable.
  15. Her voice in the English dub especially. Michele Knotz makes her sound way more energetic and shrill than Rachel Lillis did. Her personality has been lobotomised from her original tomboyish self to being your typical cute happy anime girl who very rarely displays the anger and hot-headedness of her original counterpart. Her fear of bug-types now also seems to cover every single one of them, since she hid in fear from a flock of Butterfree and Cutiefly. Butterfree has consistently been shown in the past to be one of the few bug-types she’s okay with because it’s one of the “cuter” ones, and I find it incredibly difficult to buy that she wouldn’t have felt the same about Cutiefly.
