  1. Just finished Evoland 2 for Switch. I'm not a huge fan of RPGs, but this game was fantastic. In part it was a parody of video games in general, with references to virtually every genre of game. It also was a fun game in its own right. Next on my list is Metaloid Origins. It just came out for Switch. It's basically Mega Man X with cat girls.
  2. Facebook baffles me. I go long periods where the same friends like my posts over and over, and then go long stretches where completely different friends like my posts over and over and the previous friends pretty much ignore them.

  3. Ah, July. When virtually everyone I know except me has fun on vacation while I stay home and work my tail off like always. Yayyyy.

      I just end up doing nothing. ūüėē

      It’s as boring as it sounds.

  4. I guess I'll be the only living being on the planet who plays Pokemon Sword and Shield and loves every second of it. Oh well.

      *rolls eyes* comments like this come off really dumb tbh. There are clearly people that are still interested in the game and excited

      I'm being hyperbolic, but my god, the hate from this whole National Dex debacle is so thick across the entire internet that I barely even bother going into Pokemon-related threads anymore because 99.9% of everything I read is people complaining.

      If you're sick and tired of people complaining, making this thread was a bad idea.

      How about I add I'm going to maybe be the only living person on the planet who doesn't care about Sword and Shield, Pokemon in general, and will love every second of doing something else as Pokemon isn't really my thing.

      Did I do it right?

      I don't want to be rude or anything but...

      How do you know you'll love every second of it? For all you know the story might end up bad. I'm not saying that it will, but there's much we don't know about the game yet.

      Anyway, I hope you have fun with it. I don't think I'll get it mostly due to the animations not being good enough.

      @Blue Blood I knew this thread was just going to be more of the same, but on an internet where there's been 95% negativity toward the game ever since the National Dex thing, it feels good just to say SOMETHING nice about the game.

      @DiamondX Guess I'm just easy to please. I'm well aware Pokemon has lots of glaring shortcomings, but I've enjoyed every mainline game immensely, warts and all, over the past 20+ years. If not being able to have my Blaziken from Ruby and Sapphire in the newest game is the biggest sin this game commits, I think I'll enjoy it just fine.

      Just curious (and please don't take this as my singling you out, because I just genuinely want to understand others' perspectives), would the animations not being good enough have been a dealbreaker for you before the National Dex fiasco reared it's ugly head? Because to me, it seems like many of the things people seem to take issue with with this game would never have been an issue with them before the National Dex thing.

    8. DiamondX


      Considering the fact it's the first mainline game for a home console (or hybrid, you get the idea) yes, it would annoy me anyway.

      The Switch has way better hardware than the 3DS and the fact that all they can do is increase the resolution of already made models (some characters even have the same movements as others from Sun and Moon like Hop and Hau) shows laziness in my opinion.

      The National Dex adds more fuel to the fire when they mention: "Well, the reason why we don'f have all Pokémons is because we are working on the animations and quality.". Sorry Game Freak, but the fact that a GameCube game made by like 30 people (Pokémon Stadium) shows Pokémon with better animations than your 2019 game which is made by a very wealthy company with many more employees and  the the terrible N64 Free Area trees (or whatever the parts where you catch the Pokémon is called) doesn't show any progress in quality.

      I'm sure if they cared more about the fans and less aboit the holiday money they would delay the game until say summer 2020 and work more on it and at least fix the animations if not add all the Pokemons.

  7. Rewatched some Tiny Toon episodes for the first time in, like, 10 years. Still a really funny show, but the humor definitely shows its age. So many shows have done what they did better since, but it still holds a special place for being a trailblazer in the 90s.

  9. The Future of Digimon panel at AX just confirmed that the new Digimon Adventure movie will be in US theaters Spring 2020!

      Wait, didn't Digimon Adventure Tri ended on a conclusive note?

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      @Teoskaven I mean, not so conclusive as to prevent them from doing a new story later on if Tri was a success--which it was. :)

    3. Teoskaven


      I suppose, and it has a sort-of sequel bait but considering how dark things have got with Tri (possibly the darkest since Tamers) i'm scared to see what they can do next.

    4. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Well, they got back the original character designer, so if nothing else, they'll look more like the classic characters, and they tried to get back a lot of the original Adventure crew, including the director (though he refused to come back because they weren't taking the story in a direction he wanted). We'll see.

  10. The last boss of Splatoon is probably one of my favorite final bosses of all time. It just does so much right. Haven't played Splatoon 2 yet, but I hope the final fight is even half as good.

  11. Indepenence Day is trending on Twitter.

      Mid-afternoon and America is already drunk.

  12. I was okay with the boost formula in Unleashed, but for me, my biggest qualm became more apparent with subsequent games: every level is basically the same thing in a different setting: same spike traps, same balloons, same springs, same grind rails, slightly different level layout. I think Sonic Lost World's gameplay was subpar at best, but I would argue it had more imagination put into it than all the boost games combined. Throughout all the years of 3D Sonic, I know there's a winning formula in there somewhere, but whether a Sonic game ever actually finds it...

    1. NegaMetallix


      Yeah, the levels could definitely have done with being more unique to one another.

      Like, instead of having a bunch of grind rails and balloons in every stage, why not reserve them for the urban settings? Same with spikes/traps and industrial/Eggman-themed settings. And the more natural-based stages could focus more on hills and inclines, feeling more "free" than either the urban or industrial settings.

      I mean, I'm not saying there should be absolutely no crossover between these here and there, but it might help to make all these settings stand out from one another in the future.

    2. Candescence


      That's the problem with the Boost formula: there's simply no depth or variety possible beyond what we've already seen. Unleashed, Colors and Generations took the formula as far as it could go. It's not deep enough to carry an entire game by itself but also too rigid to modify without fundamentally changing or even breaking it.

      It's explicitly designed to be a highly scripted rollercoaster and little else - no pesky camera getting in the way, no freedom to explore beyond the rails, it's all style and little substance. It's a novelty that's worn out its welcome, and one can tell even Sonic Team realizes this due to Lost World and Forces, but they are too goddamn clueless to figure out what is worth refining (such as the parkour stuff in Lost World) and what to drop entirely (the Wisps have long worn out their welcome).

    3. Milo


      I don't think the Boost gameplay is completely useless as a basis for an entire game, but the Boost seriously needs to stop being pigeonholed as something belonging to the platformer genre. The type of limited design and extreme focus on speed the Boost playstyle is constructed with is much more at home in a genre where the rigid design and gameplay focus actually makes sense (racing). In the realm of platformers, it's one of the most shallow attempts you can get, especially so since it's never been able to carry an entire game by itself.

      Presumably the only reason why they didn't make it a racing style to begin with, is because it's built from gameplay design philosophies that has been in place for 3D Sonic platformers since Adventure 2.

  13. Astra Lost in Space is getting an anime adaptation and simuldub by FUNimation and I came real close to squealing like a girl when I found out. I'm so pumped!

    1. Marcello


      I just recently found out the manga had an official release in English. I thought I'd never be able to read it. I haven't been able to afford it yet, but I read the first 3 chapters in the Shone Jump app. I really liked it. I really loved Sket Dance, so this was something I'd been looking forward to.

      Also, Astra, Dr. Stone and Vinland Saga anime within days of each other is amazing.

    2. TCB


      So I take it it's good

      @Marcello About 2 years ago Viz released the entire manga chapter-by-chapter every week on their website for free. I was fortunate enough to be able to read the entire series long before they began releasing the manga volumes in stores.

      @TCB I personally loved it! Great sci-fi action, fun characters (if not a tad cliche), laugh out loud humor, and my personal favorite aspect, the plot twists. Just about every manga chapter ended with me going "WHAT? NO WAY." I don't gush about a lot of series, but this one really kept me intrigued from beginning to end. I hope the anime does it justice.

    4. TCB


      Him, suppose I could add it to the list then.

  14. Would someone whose only RPG experience is the Mario and Pokemon series enjoy World of Final Fantasy?

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Maybe. It kind of depends on the game. Needless to say some of the games are hit or miss.

      FFX is the closest to those games. Otherwise each of the games have a real time RPG system going on. I recommend 6 (3 on the international SNES), 7, and 12.

      Thanks for the info, but I specifically meant the game "World of Final Fantasy." :)

  15. Place your bets on how long it takes for Starline to pull a "Snively" and lose respect for Eggman before backstabbing him and claiming he can do better. We all know it's gonna happen.

  17. It's not a complaint as much as a stylistic preference. As I said, I'm unsure how to explain it.

      Actually writing is way harder than thinking about writing.

  19. Playing Evoland: Legendary Edition, which contains both games in the franchise. The first one was so short, but charming and fun. Gonna be starting up the second soon, which apparently takes everything good about the original and jacks it up like crazy. I'm going to wait several weeks before picking up Super Mario Maker 2. Once a decent chunk of amazing user-created levels have dropped, I have a feeling I won't be putting that game down for a long, long time. Between go-rounds of that, I plan on trying out Dragon Ball FighterZ, Splatoon 2, and Monster Hunter Stories to finally, finally clean out my backlog I've had for the past 2 years.
  20. Poor Tracy. He has always seemed like he has a lot on his plate. I hope his time away from the book allows him the opportunity to get things settled down to his satisfaction. As for artists, I hope we see more of Skelly, Thomas, and Hernandez on the book. They're my three favorite artists on the book right now. I mean, Stanley puts out very high-quality work, but her style had just always been a bit too...expressive...for my tastes. For lack of a better word. As for Lawrence, he's okay. Nothing amazing, but okay.
  21. Thinking about Giga Wrecker again. I haven't been able to bring myself to finish it because the gameplay is infuriatingly poor, so I just watched the rest of the story on YouTube. Man, great story wasted on a poor game. I'd love to see this world return as a novel or manga or something.

  22. When you randomly remember that the rapper from SA1's Unknown From M.E. is also the voice of Parappa the Rapper.

  23. It amuses me how people think the Pokemon Adventures manga is dark based solely on the one scene early in its history when an Arbok gets sliced in half (it gets better real fast, BTW).

    1. SupahBerry


      It could be the Poke-zombies in the Lavender Town tower from the same segment.


      And it's said that that the XY series starts with the good guys' home burned to the ground by the legendaries.

    2. Dejimon11


      Yeah the manga isn’t as dark as people make it out to be. There are some dark moments but it’s not this dark and gritty thing that some folks want Pokémon to be. It’s more light hearted and wacky sometimes but it knows when to get serious. 

  24. Seems odd that they already have the DVD/Blu-Ray ready to go, yet no release date. I was kind of hoping they'd go all-in with the OG style, but the characters still look pretty good, if not a bit cheaper-animated. And is this the first confirmation that the TTG! Titans are simply the Titans from a different dimension? Which leads to another question: are these Titans the exact same as the ones from the old series? And if that's the case, does this movie take place before season 4 of the OG show since Trigon is, y'know, not dead?
  25. Spilled a whole dang glass of chocolate milk on my carpet. Not the best day today, and that didn't help. Oh well. NO USE CRYING, RIGHT? HA HA HA HA HA frick.

    1. SupahBerry


      Clearly it's more than spilled milk that's worth crying over, it seems

    2. Ferno


      of course its more than that

      its chocolate milk, totally different ballpark
