  1. Where did Trump spout that 4th of July nonsense (“they invaded the airports” etc) yesterday? I wanna show it to my mum, who likes to laugh at Trump’s idiocy.

      One of the comments claims he actually said “air force”.

      ...which also doesn’t make sense.

      The hills defenders will die on sometimes lol

  2. So the reason they used a different Mewtwo in the Genesect movie?

    It was copyright restrictions!

    1. Celestia


      Makes sense. The franchise loves it's nostalgia (sometimes to detrimental effect) and the anime has always been perfectly willing to bring back old characters before and since then, so I never really bought the idea that they did it for no reason.

    2. KHCast


      What celestia said 

    3. Red


      I wonder what prevented them from getting the rights to Mewtwo back then compared to now?

      ...the fuck???

      I dunno what I'm more surprised at; the guy having the rights to his version of a multimedia character that wasn't originally created by him (insert Ken Penders joke here), or the fact that he seemingly didn't have those rights to characters he seemingly cared a lot more about (those being the TR trio).

      But, uh, yeah. Genesect movie's still shit, and I'd rather they didn't use any Mewtwo at all in this case (Mega Evo shilling be damned).

  3. Full write-up from the Anime Expo screening.
  4. ...how is it that nobody is talking about the new Mewtwo trailer?

    1. Strickerx5


      You mean this?


      I mean eh, not sure how well the song actually fits here (and I'm still not sold on this cgi either) but I mean it's ok. Will admit that I've always been a sucker for these pop/anime af songs they often market these movie with.

    2. Ferno


      hate to say it but this cg already looks dated imo

      Wow that trailer just spoiled the whole movie.

      What about all the little tykes who were too young to see the original?!

    4. Zaysho


      Man that remake looks pretty disappointing especially considering how damn good Dragon Quest Your Story looks.

    5. shdowhunt60


      Why does this exist? The animated original is still a thing, and honestly looks better.

  5. It’s hard to contradict stuff that has never been consistent to begin with.
  6. Can you guess which (in)famous Sonic lines I put through the Google Translate ringer:

    -No service!

    -It’s too long!

    -I’m pretty good!

    -Come on your big gecko, where are you from?

    -The weather is not too long!

    -Where’s the fourth call?

    -Oh, yes, it happened!

    -I am just as confident as I am.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      "Where's the fourth call" is that DAMN fourth chaos emerald.
       Big Gecko is Big Drip
      -Oh, yes, it happened! is THIS IS HAPPENING
      "I'm pretty good" is IIRC an actual Sonic quote. 

      That's all I got.

    2. Ernest the Panda

      Ernest the Panda

      Hint: Infinite said “I’m pretty good”

      Hint #2: “It’s too long” is better read as “YoU’rE tOo LoOoOnG~!”

    3. PublicEnemy1


      UR 2 SLOW.

      Also, is Infinite's "I'm not weak"? That's the only line I remember from him.

    4. Little T

      Little T

      Is " Come on your big gecko, where are you from? supposed to be " Come on ya big drip! Where ya goin'?"


    5. Ernest the Panda

      Ernest the Panda

      @Little T correct!

      @PublicEnemy1 correct!

      Hint #3: the last one is an AoStH line (literally nobody will get it because it’s arguably the most mangled one here)

    6. Little T

      I want to say that it's Robotnik giving himself a promotion, but I really can't tell XD


    7. Ernest the Panda

      Ernest the Panda

      It *is* a Robotnik line


      -It’s no use!

      -You’re too slow!

      -I am not weak!

      -Come on you big drip, where ya going?

      -Long time no see!

      -Where’s that damn fourth Chaos Emerald?

      -Oh yeah! This is happenin’!

      -Snooping as usual, I see.

    8. SupahBerry


      I had a suspision it was the Pingas line when you said "most mangled."


      "As confident" can fit moderatly into "as usual"

  7. I’m surprised Disney haven’t decided to stop rereleasing A Bug’s Life, with this censoring spree they’re suddenly going on.

    1. Milo


      let's be honest, there's honestly a fair amount of films in the Disney vault that, looking back on them today, are candidates for censorship, if not total prohibition (song of the south)

      the real question is whether disney is going to go scorched earth on any of their older works with (what's deemed) questionable content, or they're going to be highly selective on what's acceptable, what needs to be censored, and what shouldn't be allowed to be available at all

      although right now, it doesn't seem like they're unilaterally applying this re-assessment to all platforms for their films (i.e. home video releases, television airings, all streaming/digital platforms), just their upcoming streaming service at least. so there is some sort of restraint.

      they'll just have someone clean dub over kevin spacey and hope no one notices

    3. KHCast


      Wonder if there’ll get a new voice actor for Hades 

  8. Sonic Jam. Everything from the music to the overall aesthetics make me super nostalgic, and the Sonic’s World mini-game was a genius way of incorporating all the bonus features. It was also through this game that I first learned about a shit-ton of old games that I had no idea existed. I first played the game in 2002, and before then, the only games I knew about (from before Adventure) were the original trilogy, Spinball, Mean Bean Machine, Sonic 3D, and Sonic R. I’d never heard of this “Game Gear” with its range of Sonic titles, or Sonic CD, and I finally learned where the Chaotix originated from! I also love Mega Collection, which has great music and aesthetics of its own, and the fact that it properly introduced me to Archie Sonic. Finally, since this thread’s title is “favourite Sonic compilation”, I may as well give a shoutout to the literal Sonic Compilation I played Sonic 2 and Mean Bean Machine for the first time through this collection.
  9. New trailer for Mewtwo Strikes Back EVOLUTION, and it’s fucking weird (and super spoilerific) Rita Ora is the same singer who did the Detective Pikachu ending theme. I have no idea what the context of this song being used here is (still a pretty good song though).
  10. Is the map made by Cream even supposed to be taken seriously as one?

    1. Thigolf


      Define "seriously"

    2. Diogenes


      in the sense that those places all exist, yes.

      i don't think it's intended to be geographically accurate aside from in the vaguest sense

  11. If you can, I’d recommend grabbing Tangle & Whisper issue 0. Not only is it a neat little sneak peak at the upcoming miniseries, but it also contains an 8-page recap of Year 1.
  12. So the zombot virus is going to backfire on Eggman like the old days?
  13. ...neither did Battle. That workshop was in Emerald Town in the game
  14. There was also a “Central City” in SA2 and Shadow the Hedgehog. Regardless, I’m not exactly sure this is meant to be taken as the “official” map.
  15. Remind me to sing this next Christmas

  16. This is so cool

  17. When I play Sword/Shield, I should make a conscious effort to not have old favourites on my team. The majority of my previous teams have ended up having Slowbro and Ursaring in them. I need to avoid falling into that trap this time.

      Waveshocker Sigma

      You probably won't have that hard of a time since some of them most likely won't be avaliable anyways. lol

    2. Zaysho


      A lot of my playthroughs in recent years I tend to force myself to use 'mons I don't normally use. Sometimes it works out great and I find some new favorites, other times not so much.

  18. I don’t know whether IDW has done new comic content for free comic events before.
  19. It’s like the trial in Alice in Wonderland, except with the White Rabbit (Antoine) being a clinically insane one instead of the Queen of Hearts (Sally).
  20. But in this new game-based setting, it makes me wonder what kind of “turning point” this would have been.
  21. It’s never going to happen, but that makes me wish all the more that Sega would let IDW do a continuation of Archie Sonic.
