  1. Since there are once again original E-Series robots running around, I think it'd be neat if Omega took up Gamma's pre-SGW quest of hunting down and destroying every last one. (Though he'd have much more selfish motives than Gamma) I also think it'd be funny if Big unknowingly got this new Robotomy virus and immediately converted because he's so laid back.
  2. Just got back from a Super Bowl party with my friends.

    While this Owl was certainly not Superb, we all had a great time eating junk food and heckling every commercial.

      Same. I enjoyed the commercials this year as well as the food and company with friends and family at the Super Bowl party I went to. Too bad the game wasn’t up to par.

  5. How much longer you think Switch and PC owners will have to wait for the inevitable Spyro Reignited ports?

      Probably a year.

  6. So Knuckles turns 25 tomorrow. Anybody got a gift ready?

      I was going to say I have a knuckle sandwich for him but that’s not nice. 

      How about some grapes 🍇 instead? It’s his favorite 🙂

      I was going to give him the Master Emerald but it hasn't been seen in decades.

       

  7. We've got another newcomer in two days! He may not have been invited to the latest party like his sister, but this miniboss is finally getting his chance to shine!
  8. Piranha Plant's poison spew is disgusting...

    -ly powerful. I like this guy!

  9. Balrog's getting the best costume ever in Street Fighter V:

  10. After a year of on-and-off play, I finally beat Planet Robobot's True Arena and got 100%!

    Please tell me Star Allies never gets as frustrating as Star Dream Soul.

    1. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      Star Allies is mind numbingly simple and boring compared to Robobot. I'm sure Soul Melter poses some kind of challenge but to be honest I was never invested enough in the game to care the same way I did for Star Dream Soul.

    2. TCB

      TCB

      Star Allies is far more simple and straight forward than Robobot. It's True Arena counterpart though, especially  Soul Melter and Soul Melter Extra is by far way harder. The hardest boss rush in the series that's only slightly mitigated by the fact you can bring a healing friend along.

    3. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      Robobot's still took me longer than Soul Melter Extra. I just brought some of the overpowered friends with me to the fight

  11. While the Minions gameplay still sucks, and the production values are... inadequate, to say the least... I will praise this campaign's writing. The Koopalings went from glorified minibosses to compelling-even somewhat deep- characters, and Bowser Jr. finally gets to be something other than an loud brat. He's not just Baby Bowser II- His selfish actions have realistic consequences, and they flesh him out into someone new. And without spoiling anything, I absolutely adore the BFF's as antagonists. They're colorful, they're funny, and they left such a good impression in such a short time. The fact that Nintendo was willing to finally give a Mario RPG brand-new villains for the first time in almost six years gives me a new spark of hope for future games.
  12. Bowser Jr.'s Journey spoilers:

    The new 3DS artstyle for the series already made SS and BIS's characters far less expressive than before, but their new 2D artwork is flat-out lazy:

    They literally just took one stock render for each character and slightly changed the pose each time, if that.

    I think it's high time for an aesthetic overhall.

      lmao did they run out of a budget for the credits?

  13. Who's up for Mania Adventures music?!

     

    1. TCB

      TCB

      Oh this is good

      But the Cash Cash remix is still king.

    2. Ellipsis-Ultima

      Ellipsis-Ultima

      This is alright but I think the Gens remix is better

    3. dbzfan7

      dbzfan7

      I like it, though the bell jingle is kinda subdued and takes away from one of the best parts of the song. The epic ominous build up to the riff chorus.

  14. This is the port I was waiting for:

     

  15. Finally beat the Star Fox campaign on Starlink!

    @Failinhearts, thanks so much for convincing me to pick it up. Something priceless happened during the final boss:

    I deliberately held back on Wolf so I could summon another teammate as I finished him off. (Figured having the Star Fox theme play while I beat their campaign would be thematically appropriate.)

    As I got him down to about 1/3 health, I radioed in. But before Fox could finish saying, "Star Fox, on my mark!", Slippy came in and completely annihilated Wolf!

    I will never stand for someone calling him useless again.

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Fox's ability is broken in general thanks to that initial barrage.

      Try it on Extractors. It's ridiculous.

  16. Have you seen Kirby today, Your Majesty?

  17. I've grown fond of Charizard's live-action design, but Psyduck is still gonna haunt my dreams for months.

    Still on the fence with Greninja, tho'.

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      It wouldn't have been accurate, but Psyduck honestly should've just had normal-ish duck eyes.

    2. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      @Ferno

      I could easily forgive inaccuracy to the source material if it means the final product isn't hard on the eyes. Heck, he might even look cute with actual duck eyes.

    3. Ellipsis-Ultima

      Ellipsis-Ultima

      Greninja, Psyduck and Mr Time are literal nightmares imo

  18. Much as I love Decidueye, I feel Incineroar was the much better choice. Even ignoring Pokken Tournament, finally having a full-out wrestler in Smash feels way too good. (Regardless of his competitive value) And I'm glad all of K. Rool's votes from the last game paid off eventually!
  19. They'll probably just haphazardly plop them onto free spaces in the world map. If we're lucky, we may get a new area devoted to these six.
  20. Mr. Venus Grinch Trap is coming next month: https://www.gonintendo.com/stories/326863-smash-bros-ultimate-piranha-plant-reconfirmed-for-feb-2019-re
  21. I actually appreciate the more episodic approach IDW's going with. I enjoyed Archie's overarching plot with Unleashed and all, but it's refreshing to be able to pick up any issue and just enjoy it on its own merits. Reportedly, IDW's gonna have a lot less focus on lore and more on action and characters, and that's fine by me. And while I'm gonna miss the Freedom Fighters, it's nice to see Sonic meeting up with different people every adventure instead of being tied to a specific group. (So glad Knuckles finally ended the Resistance) Everyone has their time to shine without stealing the spotlight from Sonic- or vice versa. Tails is the biggest example, finally being able to fight again instead of cowering or making smartass remarks. (His ramming the battleship into Metal was the hypest thing ever, I don't care) And speaking of characters, I'm really enjoying the new faces- Whisper's adorable and has a cool weapon, Tangle's hilariously dorky, and Rough and Tumble have grown into my new favorite Eggman lacky duo. They're tryhards, but with just the right amount of self-awareness in how they're written. (Infinite would've been far more entertaining if others actually played off his "Ow the Edge" demeanor) So while IDW is clearly in a different boat than Archie, that's okay. I'm just gonna enjoy both instead of comparing apples to oranges. Also, I'm gonna call something right now:
  22. I see Eggman's determined to get his money's worth with those Death Egg mechs. But I'm glad TSR is at least continuing its trend of making generic Zone tropes more unique. (Despite Seaside Hill tracks returning) Heck, Casino Forest and Sand/Green Hill could've been far more interesting here.

    Happy birthday! Hope you have the best of company today!

      Thank you Forte not only for the wishes but the Unleashed goodness! 😉
