    Kittea reacted to JezMM in Birds of Prey (2020)- Suicide Squad spin-off   
    It's a shame people are so iffy about this movie, saw it the other day and really enjoyed it.  It takes a little while to get going - the first half didn't make me laugh all that much and was a bit laden with some things that have gotten a bit tropey for this style of movie (every character getting introduced with a freeze frame and implied hand-written quirky "notes" from Harley as she narrates etc, or the way the plot keeps doing a "oh whoops I should probably explain why this happened" after a sudden occurance and then time winding back a bit - although while the framing is a bit of the cliché, the non-linear narrative does work well).  But... yeah once the movie got going it was really good, I laughed a LOT during the second half, the fight scenes were suitably wacky and fun, and the characters are incredibly likeable despite being mostly awful people.
    The only thing I will say is that marketing this as "birds of prey" was definitely a mistake - it is Harley's movie first and foremost, and the amount of screentime each main character gets can be pretty distinctly ranked. It's best to go in just expecting "a story" where each character is as important as they need to be, rather than assuming it's gonna be a proper ensemble cast movie.
    For the record, I don't really consider myself a DC comics fan much and didn't watch Suicide Squad.  So no attachment to that movie is necessary to enjoy.  Hell it's probably better since you can pretend the Joker Harley is referring to is one of the good ones and not the cringy one from SS.

    Kittea reacted to SatAMhog in Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Trailer 2 on Page 482)   
    Don't know if anyone saw already, but the main Paramount trailer has over 10,000,000 views in just a day and over 600,000 likes.  Not a bad start for a single day.

    The design change and the expressiveness of the character is a major improvement ^^
    As for the trailer itself. It definitely got me to genuinely smile occasionally, which is more than I can say for the original trailer. They showcased more of the characters personalities and so far I don't have any big issue with them. Still not sure whether Jim Carrey is actually playing Robotnik or "himself." The plot can be read easily but if the ride is fun then I won't mind.
    Overall this whole thing seems very generic. Not sure whether I'll see it in theatres. Will have to wait and see if the group near me who organised going to see Detective Pikachu will be doing the same for this movie. Otherwise I don't think my girlfriend would appreciate me suggesting this as our valentines day out lol

    So Toby Fox composed a track in this game. Albeit not a major one...

    Kittea reacted to Nina Cortex Jovahexeon in Official UK Report regarding Loot Boxes in Games - clearly calls them gambling   
    Again, this doesn't get the point of the matter.
    You can't circumvent the fact that companies having to fall back on alternative methods of scumminess are a result of the gaming community coming together against them. A fact which negates your opinion of no progress being made.
    See, where we differ is that, I don't prescribe to some defeatist attitude that dictates that we should just lie down and take what game companies force on us out of government paranoia. Especially when we've already seen non-corrupt examples of progress like with Belgium.
    And I like many will support the progress that's being made.

    Kittea reacted to Ice Vec in Undertale (PC, PS4, Switch) & Deltarune (PC DEMO)   
    I'm bumping this thread because today, on Twitter, Tobyfox posted this song with an image of Kris in a city
    Also after that, he felt the need to note that the city is extremely small
    A teaser for the upcoming Deltarune 2nd part?

    Kittea got a reaction from Mad Convoy in The ProJared Drama   
    While I see that he acknowledged the power dynamic, I don't believe he didn't know about it before recent events. He's a popular YouTuber, this kind of thing comes with the territory. Sure, it seems the people in question really did lie. However, Jared should've known better and not asked randoms on the internet for nudes at all. This was always going to be a possibility and he's an idiot for not considering that.
    Edit: Retracting this portion after realising that he didn't exactly prove his innocence. He cast reasonable doubt in regards to a couple of accusers, however I've now realised that at no point in his video did he prove he didn't at some point send unsolicited nudes or solicit nudes from minors he knew were underage. All the evidence he presented can be summed up as whataboutisms.
    "The few things I did try to post were met with outrage."
    Well what did he expect when a lot of what he posted was him trying to gaslight his ex. On that note, he couldn't talk about the more serious accusations earlier on for legal reasons, which makes sense. However, he then goes on to "show" texts captioned with "due to ongoing proceedings..." If you couldn't show the evidence for or talk about the p***phile accusations then why bring the cheating up at all? It would've been better to leave that part out. Sure, people would've questioned that but that isn't a huge issue. Nothing wrong with simply saying,
    "If you're wondering about the accusations surrounding myself and my ex, I currently can't discuss those due to legal proceedings."
    This is a simple but fair explanation. Him bringing it up and "teasing" everyone with blurred screenshots" just reeks of manipulation. It's him trying to sway people on that aspect of the situation because he told the truth about the rest of the accusations. The way this was all just tacked on at the end makes this more apparent.
    As for none of this aspect being "our business." Jared made it everyone's business by posting the initial vague post on Twitter before anyone else had said a word.
    He's a sleezball regardless of what he did and/or didn't do.

    Honestly, for as BS as the system is, it might have been fine...if things weren't on a time table. Almost makes one wonder why they didn't just make them DLC packs that were paid for.
    Of course, because you can permanently miss out on stuff, that shit is gonna called out big time. This isn't some MMO where temporary content is a given. It's a kart racer for crying out loud.

    We've been told on more than one occasion that there won't be any new content added to Splat2 post the update that comes out after Final Fest. So we'll just have to wait for Splat3 which the results of this Fest will likely have an affect on.
    Unless they're lying and there'll be a surprise for Splat2 depending on the results. I think this is unlikely though.

    Kittea reacted to Strong Bad in Etika Appreciation Thread   
    I've been super mega gone from the Sonic scene for so long, but Etika is someone I kept up with through the years. From humble beginnings as a SegaSonic Radio DJ to being a famous YouTuber, his passion as an entertainer was obvious from day 1. He wanted to bring smiles to the faces of others, and he did that better than anyone I have ever known.
    He and I would talk on MSN as early as 2006, and bonded over the fact that we had the same birthdate (may 12th!). Later in 2015 we finally got to meet up. He was always so excited about any progression or good parts of my life, encouraging me and helping me. I met up with him at various events and again in 2017 as I hung at his apartment in NYC. He just... he wouldn't let me pay for my own food.... or anything like that. I was his guest of honor, I suppose, that's just how kind he truly was. Infinite kindness. Infinite patience. Infinite smiles. I knew he was hurting, and I reached out to him, but I hadn't got a reply since October... I'm so sorry it came to this, Desmond, and I'm sorry I couldn't help you. I'm in tears over your passing and I'm sorry you were suffering this much. I will never forget you no matter how much time passes.
    I don't much like putting my face on the internet these days, but I'll make an exception.

    Here's to you, Desmond. I love you and miss you so much. Everything hurts, but I can only imagine this is a fraction of the pain you must have felt. I would do anything to hear some Cold Hard Facts from you just one more time. 💔

    Kittea reacted to KHCast in Etika Appreciation Thread   
    It really is comforting to see so many high profile people in the Smash community leave the kind words they are about him. From guys like BillyB0 and PapaGenos, to Alpharad, Sherwood, and Introspective, all the way to the competitive scene guys like ZeRo.
    It hurts knowing he thought he’d be forgotten...he’s a loved individual. Just look at all the people that weren’t even close to him express their respect for him. the people bullying him online, compounded with his mental health and lack of care given regarding it by both the system, and the people, really did a number on him, and I hope the people memeing and “clowning” him feel ashamed. It wasn’t a joke that he was going through actual mental illness, anyone paying attention could see that. Even though he pulled shitty pranks, they were obviously signs of a problem, and don’t justify making fun of him in mass, even while he was missing. The system failed him, he deserved much better. Hopefully this issue becomes more real to people within these communities and going forward we do better to help people that are going through issues of depression, mental health, etc. instead of ridicule, and make fun of them for attention. RIP Etika. I may not have watched much of your content, but you certainly made your place in the community you loved.

    Let's change the subject a bit then.
    Did you noticed that there's a chicken hidden somewhere in every level? Some are easy to spot, like Tiger Temple where you can see it chasing a little tiger like Pura in one of those bridges. In Crash Cove the chicken is stranded on a box surrounded by sharks in the water. In Papu's Pyramid, it's being cooked by the tribesmen near the finish line on the left.
    I wonder if spoting all chickens unlocks something...
    There's also a classic, and fairly rust, Super Mario Bros. green pipe in Papu's Pyramid before the last turn on the left. It's next to a red mushroom with white dots too.

    Please leave this precious duo alone Nintendo lol
    I was a little disappointed about the lack of foreshadowing.
    I was so sure I was on the losing team lol Did not have a good run despite winning a 10x match.
    I'd say the Shifty Station from this fest is one of my favourites ^^
    Wonder if the song for the final few hours of Final Fest will change to Fly Octo Fly or something ^^ In Splatoon Calamari Inkantation played for the final few ours of the Callie VS Marie Splatfest ^^

    Alright, kids & Squids. We have the last 2 Splatfests coming up.
    First off is the Unicorns VS Narwhals Splatfest.

    Meanwhile, this was just announced after the results of the Splatoon 2 World Championships 2019


    Remember how the results of the Marie VS Callie Splatfest affected the Story Mode in Splatoon 2? I can see this being the same case for Splatoon 3.

    Kittea reacted to Ryannumber1gamer in General E3 2019 Topic & Motobug @ E3 - SSMB's Exclusive E3 Stream - E3 Starts June 8th 2019   
    With E3 starting in about two weeks, and things being pretty different with several studios this time around, I thought now might be the best time to make the general discussion topic for this year's E3. As with previous years, this topic will be used as a general guide topic for E3, including the links to the other topic discussions that I'm sure will begin popping up as E3 closes in on us. This will also cover the stream details that Motobug will be running for this year. As usual, Motobug will be streaming the conferences for another year in a row, so if you want to watch an exclusive SSMB stream of the conferences, and watch the reveals live with SSMB members, that's the stream for you.
    The additional conferences that aren't exactly E3 conferences (Treehouse streams for example) will be streamed on Motobug when it doesn't interfere with other conferences as well. As usual, it's a community volunteer thing to run these streams as well, so keep in mind there may be some hiccups on our side, and will be under the Motobug rules that are listed in the main Motobug topic. We're also considering the Smash tourney as well, but it's undecided, so I'll update when Motobug staff have come to a decision on it.
    Anyways, with all that said, here is all the gathered information for E3 this year. I'll be updating the topic as more topics are made, and updating with a proper schedule when the conferences have all been properly revealed. 
    Also, if there's any info that I've missed about already announced topics (right now, I'm just announcing Nintendo, Sony, and MS as I'm unsure we've got the info of the other usual contenders such as Ubisoft, EA, etc), let me know and I'll update the topic.

    Question, since I personally haven't heard a lot about this. Has anyone actually complained about the idea of their inclusion or are Activision assuming people will react this way? I've tried looking it up and what I'm seeing is people complaining about supposed "SJW's" but little to no comments from said "SJW's."
    Personally I just assumed they were given the nickname of "Trophy Girls" because they gave out the trophies or something. I didn't play the full game growing up so I don't know the full context.
    Anyway, I was able to play the game at a con I went to over the weekend ^^ Was a lot of fun but I will be remapping the buttons once I have the game. The defualt setup was awkward to me personally.
