  1. Aplogies for the late reminder - Sam & Max will be on in about 20 or so minutes. Tonight is Season 2's finale!


  2. Man, this still gives me chills


  3. I can't believe this, Cell is actually gonna hijack Tokyo's big screens to announce the Cell Games themed celebration coming to Dokkan Battle. This is unreal

      I'm honestly really glad to see the game grow. Back during the 2nd Annversary I never would have never thought we would get this far.

  4. You know, thinking about it, I'm quite surprised there's yet to be an Ace Attorney trial where Phoenix is the one initially framed for the crime, and has to defend himself in court in order to find the culprit. The series has toyed about with the idea before, on three different occasions off the top of my head - Turnabout Sisters had Redd White accuse Phoenix, but at that point, he'd already concluded his investigation for the day, and was basically prepared for a full defence.

    There was Recipe for Turnabout, where Tigre framed Phoenix technically, but instead of for a crime, he posed as him to make Phoenix look incompetent and subject his fall person to a guilty sentence. Finally, we had Phoenix getting disbarred in Apollo Justice for unwittingly giving in false evidence despite not knowing.

    But despite all that, we never got a proper trial where it starts with Phoenix being framed, and having to work his way throughout the entire trial to show his innocence. Like, for example, if we had a trial where Phoenix would do the court sections, but would be locked up during the Investigations, meaning someone else like Edgeworth, Maya, or so on would have to handle the investigation portions for him, and exchange the information at a later time right before the trial.

    Interestingly enough, something like this was the original idea for Turnabout Sisters, back when Phoenix was a detective instead of an attorney, he would've been framed for Mia's death to begin with and have to prove himself innocent...

    1. DiamondX


      Turnabout Trump is the closest we got to that IMO since:

      1. Phoenix is considered to be the culprit from the beggining until the end of the case.

      2. He helps Apollo during the case and is providing most of the evidence.

      He is more or less defending himself but he cannot do it without Apollo as he also needs him to "awaken" his power.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      I actually forgot about Turnabout Trump. Granted, probably because Phoenix is so heavily out of character in that case, but still.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Granted, you could also technically throw in Turnabout Memories, although Mia was the one defending him there, as opposed to a self-defence.

    4. JosepHenry



      is not phoenix but Naruhodou should be QUITE the answer to your question.

  5. God, I hate Wendy Oldbag with a passion.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Sure, but she adds something good to the games she appears in.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Knocking Edgeworth down a few pegs?

    3. Ellipsis-Ultima


      Oh I'm not the only one. Her obsession with Edgeworth is kinda creepy.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Just generally kinda funny to see her antics. She's fucking awful and totally annoying, but she brings something to all the cases that she's involved in. Although I'm glossing over the Investigations games because I hardly remember them.

  6. After months, I finally went back to finish Big Top Turnabout in the PS4 version of the AA Trilogy. Honestly wasn't as bad playing it on a TV as it was on a handheld/tablet.

    Buuut now it's time for one of the best cases, and this'll be the first time I've replayed it since I first finished it on the 3DS port.

      I’m convinced the Ace Attorney Trilogy is just going to be one of those games that exists forever and ever simply because it gets ported to damn near every console.

  7. In an alternative timeline...


    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Just imagine Brie Larson's face if she was called 'Hot Legs' XD

  8. Enter the Florpus was great, really hope we might see a revived Zim series at some point from it.

  9. Time to watch Enter the Florpus!

  10. Finished Hush, great movie, but one thing I am reaaaaally iffy over.


    Hush was effectively in-name only. It's basically a mixture of the Hush and Eternal storylines, specifically with a "C-Lister" manipulating all of the villains to work against Batman. Instead of Thomas Elliot, it's Riddler for some reason.

    I like seeing Riddler being a main villain too, and I was surprised, as someone who loves the original comic, but it sucks hard that they just had to rewrite a major character to do it. If they wanted to do a Riddler villain story, why not Zero Year?

    I do really love the change to Batman and Catwoman's break-up though, instead of Batman believing he was hypnotised into loving Selina, it's instead because Selina will change her ways a lot for Bruce, but Bruce will never change his code, or stop being Batman. 

    I'll give them credit for a major ballsy change to the Batman lore, but I do not feel good about it.

    1. NegaMetallix


      Yeah. I haven't read the original comic version, but that really threw me off the first time I watched the film.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Definitely read the comic if you ever get a chance. It's one of the downright best Batman stories ever, and the movie, while decent, does not come near the original.

    3. NegaMetallix


      If I have the money and see the comic around, I'll be sure to give it a read.

      I'd probably do the same with the Batman/TMNT crossover comic, but I think that may require some more knowledge on the latter's comic adventures, from what I've heard.

  11. tbh, the Hush movie is making more more invested in Batman/Catwoman than I have been in the last 30 or so issues of Rebirth Batman

  12. About to watch Batman Hush. The comic is one of, if not my favourite Batman stories, and I've wanted an animated adaption for years, so time to see if it fits the bill or not.

  13. and now i managed to bug out the audio so the game is one line behind on every dialogue scene


  14. So fun update on Spyro Enter the Dragonfly - due to the fact I'm playing the UK version, on top of the natural issues with the game's FPS, it's also highly likely running in a 50hz mode, which automatically makes it slower.

    So in a desperate attempt to try fix this, I decided to use a Action Replay code to buff the framerate by disabling VSync. I can already tell this will be a disaster but let's see

  15. Hello, I've decided to enhance your life by showing you this


  16. Against my better sense, I'm playing Enter the Dragonfly...

    1. SonicWind


      Turn back now. While you still can.

    2. JosepHenry
    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Because it is my mission

      to finish it once and for all.

    4. Perkilator


      Is your safe icon Hunter about to sneeze? Because you’ll need it as a good luck charm (even though you can just clip the entrance to Ripto’s boss).

  17. Finally got the platinum in God of War 2018!

    1. DiamondX



      I thought you just started playing it for the first time a few days ago.

    2. TheOcelot


      Ryan is the god of platinums

  18. Remember that leak from years ago about a Damian Wayne helmed sequel to Arkham Knight, which ended up seemingly being fake?

    Yeah, turns out it was real, and got cancelled.


    1. dbzfan7


      I'd probably care if this was Terry McGinnis, and a Batman Beyond game.

  19. Man, it's a good game, but 100%ing God of War is tedious as hell.

    Almost done, at least. Just have to go back for missed shit in the woods, and finish off Alfheim and Helheim.

    1. Strickerx5


      The Valkyries are what made me put that game down after I finished it.

      Fuck that shit, there's only so much Dark Souls bs I can take. They aren't god awful after you get their patterns down but stiiiiiiiiiiilllllll.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Yup, they are straight up bull. I honestly just put the difficulty from normal to easy to deal with them, no shame whatsoever.

    3. dbzfan7


      I love them honestly. So much fun...but I like Dark Souls so.....tough fights like that are my jam.

  20. You ever get those times where you finish something important, or finish an important obligation, just to think "ah now I can relax", only for another one to crop up less than a day later

    1. tailsBOOM!


      All the time, sometimes the same day.

      yea thats college

      I'm a newspaper editor. That's pretty much how I make my living.

    6. Ellipsis-Ultima


      that happens to me a LOT.

  21. Am I the only one who feels like while it's good on a design level, it's really overanimated to the point of distraction? 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Yeah, impressive but overdone. Too much animation and a total aesthetic clash. I honestly wouldn't even like a fully animated movie/show to look anything like that.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Agreed. He uses Roger Rabbit as an example, but I feel like it doesn't fit. Roger didn't feel as overanimated, but on top of that, the moments he does have a cartoonish animation, it's used as a source of comedy. In the above clip, literally nearly everything Sonic does has to have some stupid sound effect or overanimation. The 9 million steps part is especially frustrating to me, it looks fine, but it just has a sound effect added for no reason. It feels like overcompensation to me IMO.

    3. JezMM


      Not watching the video coz last I heard the guy who made it is a douche, but honestly Roger Rabbit is never going to work as an example of how 2D characters in live action can work because the entire point of that movie was hanging a lampshade on the fact that they were cartoon characters.


      I mean, obviously under that context it absolutely does work because Roger Rabbit is an incredible film, but not without that context.

    4. SupahBerry


      It's clear that Max's bias here is rooted deep into the Ren and Stimpy cartoon style, and in this case likely sees AOSTH as the superior Sonic media. Which many agree that again, while good design wise, doesn't really match the intended original vision for Sonic. He's quick to dismiss those that believe Sonic is meant to be serious, when he was always design to have at least a little edge put in.


      Sonic is a hero that while still flawed, is a hero that many can look up to. So it doesn't feel right if his reactions are dominated only by wild takes. This is saying that to "fix" Sonic, you need to remove what makes him Sonic in the first place. 


      Basically, this video all over again.


    5. Ryannumber1gamer



      Yeah, the video itself isn't very good. A lot of it is basically a Chris Chan joke and your usual Sonic fanbase nonsense.

    6. Joy


      Felt the same way when I watched it. A damn good bit of animation work in its own right, and I do think the movie should've been embracing Sonic's clash with the real world rather than trying to make him fit in but he's taken the philosophy of "Sonic is a toon" way too far. Sonic's design takes inspiration from classic cartoons but he has never been THIS wacky, AOSTH is the closest thing and I'd argue it's way less pantomine than this is.

      The scene of Sonic in the car though I feel works really well, he's in a far more interesting pose than the CG model is, and I really like the exaggerated confident face he pulls when he says "save your planet".

      Going the Roger Rabbit way with the Sonic movie isn't actually a bad idea and would definitely stand out in modern cinema, we haven't had the 2D / live action hyrid in quite some time. Has there been any major releases since Looney Tunes Back in Action? 

  22. Finally unlocked my first Legendary hero in SEGA Heroes, got Tyris from her event today, and got her to five stars.

    Don't know if I should swap Shadow out for her though.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Shadow is better than Tyris in my experience.

    2. Ellipsis-Ultima


      Also got Tyris Flare!

      But yeah i second the fact that you're better off with Shadow. Maybe use Tyris for the arena mode along with Axel Stone.

  23. Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles

      Ah yes, back when ninja was a taboo word here in Britain, at least for kids

  24. Scott the Woz reviewed CD


    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I agree with him on a lot of points. CD, IMO, has far and away the worst level design of any 2D game. It's like the level designers were drunk and just threw stuff on the screen.

    2. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      It's always sad to me watching people bash CD and the original as much as they do. As one is my personal favorite and defines Sonic to me and the other is still to me the most genius in its gameplay design of any game in the franchise, seeing people have no appreciation for them or seeing some of eth things hat make them so amazing is just disheartening. Oh well, I guess that's the way it goes.

    3. Harkofthewaa


      Well this guy seems to favor Sonic 1's level design. Me personally, I would rather play through Sonic 1 since there is no need to do the special stages due to no Super Sonic. The checkpoint system in Sonic 2 kinda sucks (you have to scour levels for enough rings and then hunt down a checkpoint all without getting hit, versus just grabbing enough rings on the way to the goal) and the special stages themselves suck more. Between the classics I easily play Sonic 2 the least. For me it's mostly 1 and 3&K, mixing it up with some Cd now and again. 

    4. Strickerx5


      “Sonic CD feels like a Sonic special stage turned into a full game.”

      God, that’s just the perfect description right there.


      I don’t think there’s a single thing I disagree with in this video. CD is a game that had a lot of killer ideas, especially for the time, but its levels are simply terrible imo.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      Agreed. I cannot stand CD, which isn't too surprising when even Sonic 1 and 2 drive me up a wall from a level design viewpoint. CD is the very definition of style over substance for me. Tons of cool ideas, awful execution, especially the levels, which have good ideas for themes, but are just so awfully designed.
